     "This is a proper beginner's book, although there is information in it that would be of value to horsemen with miles of experience.
     "Generously illustrated with excellent black-and-white photos, this book offers truly the most painless way to learn about elementary horsemanship - on the ground. 
     "Safety is emphasized at all times, and so is the well-being of the horse. 
     "From catching to bathing, braiding to hoof picking, this book covers all the basics for keeping your horse clean, safe, and presentable."  - 
 The Quarter Horse Journal

 

     "Cherry Hill's books, "Horse Handling and Grooming" and "Horse Health Care" are the perfect reference guide for both novice and experienced horse owners.
