Turning your horse out all year round is not quite as cheap and trouble-free as people might think, and this book highlights the problems and pitfalls and gives sound advice on how to avoid them. Why do you want to keep your horse at grass? Do you have access to a suitable field? Will he need company? The answers to these and hundreds of other questions, are all found here. Susan McBane shows how 'outdoor' horses, if handled properly, can be worked up to very good condition at any time of year. Pasture management, and the use of an effective rota system, is also clearly explained. Important advances in the fields of equine feeding and nutrition, clothing and exercise physiology are all covered in detail. Whether you own a grass-kept horse or are just thinking about doing so, this book will be an invaluable aid to both your peace of mind and your horse's well-being.
