Essential Care of the Ridden Horse, Peter Gray
123 Peter Gray Essential Care of the Ridden Horse
David & Charles 225218 London 2002 First Edition 0715311581 / 9780715311585 Hardcover Very Good Condition Very Good He sets out to extend and reinforce that knowledge with this thorough yet easy-to-read guide to caring for the ridden horse. Whether the owner enjoys gentle hacks through the countryside or the thrill of competition, understanding how to keep the horse at peak fitness is all part of the relationship. Peter Gray pays particular attention to to those common conditions that call a temporary halt to riding activity - lameness, respiratory infections, muscular strains - but that are very often caused by incorrect management and are therefore avoidable. He also unravels the important factors that influence performance in horses facing active competition; the practical, sensible everyday things that can mean the difference between losing and winning. This is a book of good sense, practical advice and thorough expert knowledge for all owners who want the best for their horses. 160 pages. Illustrated with colour and black and white photographs. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Animals & Nature::Horses; Animals & Birds; ISBN: 0715311581. ISBN/EAN: 9780715311585. Inventory No: 225218. Hardcover
