The Horse: Second edition
By J. Warren Evans, Anthony Borton, Harold Hintz, & L. Dale Van Vleck

Written by some of the world's leading experts in their respective fields, this edition is the most authoritative and comprehensive study of horse science available. The authors cover virtually every aspect of the subject, from mounting, grooming, and tack to genetics, nutrition, and health. The book is an extremely practical presentation of information, much of which is the result of the most recent scientific research, yet it is written in such a way that any intelligent person can understand it.

This edition features the most current advances in research--including the National Research Council's latest nutritional recommendations. It also covers anatomy, physiology, and care of the feet and legs helping readers assess injuries and how they affect short- and long-term performance.

Look to this Second Edition for expanded discussions of the effects of training and exercise on muscle, and of respiratory and cardiovascular systems, and an essential section on first aid.

More than three hundred illustrations, closely integrated with the text, add an extra dimension of understanding and enjoyment. A colour section depicts all the possible coat colours of horses.
