Care of the Stabled Horse
By David Hamer

Caring for your horse means good management and an understanding of his behaviour. In this clear and concise handbook, David Hamer explains how the horseowner, stable manager, groom and anyone else working with horses can get the best out of their charge by ensuring that the stable is managed professionally, and that the horses are properly cared for on a day-to-day basis.

Full of good sense, this book tells you exactly what to do and when. There are sections on: bringing the horse up from grass to the stable; how to create a healthy environment within the stable - the importance of correct lighting, ventilation and temperature control; security and smoke detectors; bedding, mucking out and feeding; the need for controlled exercise; recognizing signs of illness and caring for sick or injured horses; developing confidence and trust; presentation - grooming, clipping and washing; clothing and saddlery; hoof care; special stabling - before, during and after competitions; transportation; turning the stabled horse away to grass and preparing the stable for the next season.

David Hamer's guide to good practice is supported by an explanation of veterinary matters where relevant and numerous line diagrams and photographs. Skilled management is vital to the horse's physical and mental well-being. This book tells you how to achieve this.
