"This is one of the best introductory books about elementary health care for horses. It can be understood by the rankest beginner and also be appreciated by people who have been in the business a spell. The excellent photographs and illustrations are large, easy to understand and coupled with a text that is simple and direct."  - Quarter Horse Journal

"One of the most prolific writers in the equine industry, Cherry Hill has compiled another book filled with good how-to information. Ample black and white photographs and the open layout make the information easy to follow, and, in this case, a picture is worth a thousand words. Her simple explanations and instructions solve much of the mystery for horsemen, especially those new to the industry." - Western Horseman
