From the Back Cover:

You may know how to ride, but do you know how to do your horsekeeping homework? Even if riding is your main reason for having a horse, you have to remember that he relies on you for his proper care, feeding, and exercise. Horse Care and Fitness will teach you everything you need to know to become a responsible owner or horse lover so that you can take the very best care of your equine companion.
You'll learn:

* simple daily care routines
* how to keep your horse in optimum condition
* how to provide safe and secure stabling
* easy-to-follow dietary plans and exercise regimes
* expert advice on grooming and tack care
* health tips and first aid for common injuries
* how to address common problems in the barn and in the saddle
* how to prepare for show presentation

To build a good partnership with your horse, you'll need to know what his needs are, as well as what's going on in his head. Having a happy and healthy horse will also help you to become a better equestrian--and in return you'll have his love and loyalty for years to come.
