How to Groom a Horse
by Janice L. Blake
Jockey, author, speaker, and equine consultant Janice L. Blake takes a horse from the pasture and expounds on how to groom the horse properly in order to get it ready to ride.
The author goes over such actions as how to get mud out of the tail, how to comb the tail so as not to pull out all the hair, how to comb the mane and forelock, how to pick the feet, and several other important points to go over on the horse in order to make sure it is fit and able for a ride that day.
A must read for anyone just starting out learning about horses and how to make sure the horse being ridden is healthy and ready for the day’s exertions.
