Horse Owners' Essential Tips: Grooming, Care, Tack, Facilities, Riding, Pasture
A comprehensive illustrated reference to simplifying horse care.
Horse Owners' Essential Tips is chock full of the best proven advice on horse care. Shared among owners and riders for years, these tips and tricks revolve around daily maintenance and the most common problems that arise when caring for a horse. The book packs them all together in an easy to use guide that will quickly earn a prominent place in the stable office.
The tips are organized into seven sections covering all aspects of horse care: Grooming; Care; Equipment; Stabling; Riding; Equestrian, In the Meadow, and Horse Life.
Here are some examples:
- About half a glass of sunflower oil in each ration will give a beautiful shine to a horse's coat.
- Hay should be fragrant and green but it also should not be too dry or too wet. To test, vigorously twist tufts of hay between both hands. It should be flexible enough to survive 10 twists before snapping (meaning it's not too dry) but if it still doesn't break after 15 twists, then it's too wet.
- A basketball net, without the backboard, makes a great hay feed net for a stable -- and it keeps the hay off the ground.
- To keep a stable water trough clean, install it into a corner of the stable and fix a metal bar about one foot (30 cm) front of it. This will keep the wrong end of the horse away from the water.
- Some horses eat much too quickly, which can cause deadly choking or bloat. To slow it down, break stones of salt into the ration. This slows the horse down as he has to pick through the food to avoid the salt. Horse Owners' Essential Tips is eminently practical and informative for all new and veteran horse owners and for young and experienced riders alike. An essential selection for all collections.
Landaluce: The Story of Seattle Slew's First Champion (Horses in History)
When Triple Crown winner Seattle Slew retired from racing in 1978 to stand at stud at Spendthrift Farm, no one could be certain he would be a successful sire. But just four years later, his dark bay daughter Landaluce won the Hollywood Lassie Stakes by twenty-one lengths―a margin of victory that remains the largest ever in any race by a two-year-old at Hollywood Park. California horse racing had a new superstar, and Slew was launched on a stud career that would make him one of the most influential sires in North America. Like her father, Landaluce soon became a national celebrity, and was poised to become the next American super-horse. But those dreams ended when the two-year-old died in her stall at Santa Anita four months later, the victim of a swift and mysterious illness. Today, with her "I Love Luce" bumper stickers long gone, the filly has been largely forgotten.
In Landaluce: The Story of Seattle Slew's First Champion, Mary Perdue tells the story of a horse whose short but meteoric career could have changed racing history forever. Sparking comparisons to Ruffian, Landaluce helped elevate California horse racing to the national stage and could have been the first filly to ever win the Triple Crown. In telling this story, Perdue explores the lives and careers of Landaluce's breeders, owners, and trainer, D. Wayne Lukas, as well as her famous sire Seattle Slew―and shows not only how one filly captured the imagination of racing fans across the country, but also set the stage for another filly turned super-horse, Zenyatta, in the decades to come.

Shoeing the Modern Horse
All horses have four hooves that are integral to their overall health, their athletic ability, and ultimately, their longevity, whether their “job” is simply grazing in a pasture or competing at the highest levels. But not all horses are the same—the individual needs of each horse require an understanding of responsible, informed hoofcare on the part of the owner, rider, or trainer. This highly illustrated guide by one of the world's leading minds in the area of farriery provides an unparalleled look at advances in shoeing and general hoof maintenance, with the goal of helping owners to comprehend the “whys” of certain choices, recognize variations in shoeing options, and become better consumers of horse shoes and horseshoeing all around.
Steve Kraus, Head of Farrier Services at the Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine and instructor at the Cornell Farrier School, is uniquely qualified to provide a varied and thorough exploration of hoof-related topics, including:
- Equine conformation—how to assess it in relation to soundness and performance, and how farriers use it to guide shoeing choices.
- To shoe or not to shoe? Using sense and science to analyze which horses are better served with shoes and which may be comfortable and healthy barefoot.
- Types of horseshoes and traction devices, modification devices, adhesives, materials, and more.
- Shoe loss—why it happens and how to prevent it.
- Farrier training—where and how it happens, how to find a good one and what you should expect.
- Horse handling for shoeing—how to prepare your horse and yourself.
- The future of farriery with 3D printing.
With plenty of “adventures from the road” and lessons learned during his years of shoeing horses professionally, Kraus provides a guide that is not only massive in value, it's entertaining, to boot. An excellent resource for all serious horse people who wish to keep their horses comfortable and performing their very best while making informed decisions and having intelligent conversations with hoofcare professionals.
