KIRKUS REVIEW

This basic briefing on the selection, handling, and upkeep of a horse argues that the best horse is the right horse for you, and will help you to make the correct choice in indicating what to look for- or guard against- in the various types and breeds. Those appraised here are the American Saddle Horse, the Arabian, the Tennessee Walking Horse, the Western Horse, the Quarter Horse, the Palomino, Albino, Appaloosa. Breeding and the handling of both the mare and the foal, training- whether the saddle horse or hunter or Western Horse, and feeding will give you enough factual information to take you over the first jumps, and while at all times efficiently instructive, there is an occasional anecdotal aside to brighten the material.
