Selecting and purchasing a horse is dealt with in detail, with warnings of the pitfalls that may be encountered. A guide to stabling and pasture management covers these important aspects of horse care, which are so vital in maintaining your horse's health and happiness. The principles of keeping the horse healthy are explained including feeding, grooming, shoeing, veterinary care and sick nursing. A programme for getting the horse fit for hunting or competition is clearly outlined. The equipment required to keep a horse is expensive and the author gives advice and guidance on how to choose and care for increasingly complicated tack. Finally, the very important subject of road transport is discussed setting out the best way of preparing the animal for a journey and which types of vehicle are available for this purpose. This is an invaluable guide to all aspects of keeping a horse fit and well for hacking, competition riding or hunting.

From the Publisher:

America¹s Shakers were careful and caring gardeners, each village community growing their fruit, herbs, flowers, and vegetables organically and sustainably. In the 21st century, we still have much to learn from the Shaker approach to gardening. This splendid guide now shows you how to create a beautiful and productive garden in the Shaker tradition, either from scratch or from an existing scheme. Sound horticultural information includes natural gardening methods that are as relevant today as they were 250 years ago, along with advice on choosing plants that are as productive as they are ornamental. Among the dozens of step-by-step projects are simple structures, raised beds, decorative elements, and recipes for herb-flavored honey and salads of edible flowers. Brimming with glorious color photographs, The Shaker Garden is an invitation to simplify: to use natural methods and materials to create a garden that is a rich source of sustenance, beauty, and serenity. A BOMC One Spirit Book Club Selection. A BOMC Crafter¹s Choice Book Club Selection. A BOMC Country Homes & Gardens Book Club Selection.
