The information is offered through descriptions of a teenage girl's summer, working at a horse farm. For anyone who expects to be doing likewise, this book is a good source. It goes right to the facts which may seem mundane but are essential to the care of horses. Feeding, grooming, arranging the stalls, saddling are detailed, along with guide lines for instructors about choosing the proper horses for students, how to give directions, riding drills, and the organization of horse shows. The text is clear and concise; descriptions are matter of fact, not rhapsodic.
