"I just bought this book and I'm glad I did! I have done a lot of reading on horse care, from the perspective of veterinarians, university professors, associations, and everyday horse lovers and caregivers. Many have conflicting opinions. I have found Marijke's book to be the most comprehensive explanation of how to keep a horse healthy. It's well documented, easy to follow, and very well written. Thank you Marijke and Elisha for convincing me to buy it." - K.Z.
