Colin Vogel, a leading authority on horse care, presents the reader with a fine manual for the beginning and intermediate equestrian. Mr. Vogel illustrates basic horse behavior and anatomy, providing vital tips on controlling your horse, essential hoof care, clipping, transporting your horse and preparing for a show, tack, as well as everyone’s favorite task, mucking out a stall.

Especially important is the back of the book, detailing foot and leg disorders, parasites, tips on when it’s time to call a veterinarian, first aid for injuries and nursing care, as well as foaling and year round care of your horse. The Complete Horse Care Manual is a must for the library of any novice or intermediate equestrian.
