4.0 su 5 stelle Excellent Guide for Hands On Equine Care 10 dicembre 2004
Di Licensed Therapist - Pubblicato su
Formato:Copertina rigida
If you are interested in learning not only how to avoid injury to your horse but improve performance, you would do well to take the practical and well-thought out advice offered by this well-respected and credentialed human and equine physiotherapist. Even the spiral binding was considered so to allow one to take it to the barn and lay it open while you practice the many simple yet effective techniques Ms. Sutton covers beside many helpful photos. As in all healthcare, in order to determine what abnormal is, one must start with a clear understanding of normal. While this may seem like "stating the obvious," I come across enough horseowners for whom such things bear repeating. To focus solely on this, is to miss the overall value and important information this book contains. Beside massage and stretching regimens for the horse, stretching and warm up exercises for the rider are also included, so horse and rider function as a more physically harmonious unit vs. separate elements. Chock full of practical tips from hoof balance to suppling exercises, you would do well to own this book.

2.0 su 5 stelle Not the best on the subject 16 giugno 2007
Di cassabb - Pubblicato su
Formato:Copertina rigida
This book is a slow read and not the most comprehensive or useful book on this topic. Mostly it covers massage and stretching. It goes over evaluation of the normal horse, identifying problems, preventing problems, massage, exercise therapy, and specific regimes for specialist disciplines. A specific regime is not included for jumpers. The massage section had lots of pictures and showed you, step-by-step, how to do it. Not worth it for me.

1.0 su 5 stelle Not Helpful... 2 ottobre 2002
Di Un cliente - Pubblicato su
Formato:Copertina rigida
I did not find this book helpful in any way and do not recommend purchasing it for your library. What the author considers helpful tips are statements of the obvious. For example in the Suppling Exercises Applied chapter, a Tip from the author is: "You can rest yourself and the horse in between each exercise, or just continue into the next one straightaway." Advice such as "blankets should fit correctly" is equally ridiculous. There are many other excellent books to use as resources - feel free to pass on this one.
1.0 su 5 stelle Better books on the subject 2 gennaio 2008
Di Percheron Fan - Pubblicato su
Formato:Copertina flessibile
This book is a "What it is" book rather than a "How to and Why to do it" book. The preface explains why: the author notes that in the UK it is ILLEGAL for horse owners to apply medical/specialized knowledge without the permission of a veterinarian. So- there is no detailed information, just a description of the problem and a description of the treatment. Not extremely useful.
