New Horse Handbook: Settling in Safely at a New Stable
Packed with photographs, this valuable reference is a must-have for anyone considering buying or rehousing a horse. Get ready for your horse’s arrival by considering the animal’s emotional needs. Be sure you have the appropriate equipment and supplies, and familiarize yourself with ailments common to horses that have been recently transported. Prepare for “first-day handling” so you’ll know exactly what to do when the trailer finally pulls up. Understand horse social structure so you can introduce your new horse to others you already own. Help your horse deal with the stress of relocating, and be sure to build good relationships with horse-care professionals. Tips are included for traveling to a show and selecting a new home for your horse. A bibliography and resource lists direct you to further information.
