World-Class Grooming for Horses : The English Rider's Complete Guide to Daily Care and Competition
by Cat Hill and Emma Ford and Jessica Dailey




Overview -
When owning, training, riding, and showing horses, there is a certain "look" to which one aspires. World-class "turnout"--a horse in peak condition, perfectly coiffed and luminous with health, outfitted with gleaming and well-fit tack appropriate for his sport--can take your breath away. And while it can certainly play a significant role in a competitive rider's success, it is just as appealing to have any horse "groomed to the nines," whether he's headed for an afternoon lesson or just out on the trail.

Achieving this superior look is not just about clean tack, shiny brass, spotless stockings, or perfect braids. The most important steps are in the day-to-day nitty-gritty of grooming and caring for the horse: noticing "something not-quite-right" about the way the horse looks or moves before it becomes "something wrong"; brushing and combing and trimming a little every day so the horse's skin and coat remain healthy; knowing how to prepare a horse properly for training, and how to cool him down afterward. Now, two of the best professional grooms in the business share their trade secrets, with over 1200 color photographs accompanying the ultimate modern-day guide for all riders who want their horses to look and feel their best.
