From the Inside Flap:

Susan Harris has found the way to take a good book and make it better. She's done it by updating Grooming to Win, the definitive reference on the subject, to include current show-ring standards and breed requirements as well as other changes that have taken place since the book was first published in 1977. Now there is a new Western chapter and a chapter on dressage and the Sport Horse, to mention but two of the most notable additions. Extensive new information is given on the following topics:

  • conditioning and developing show horses
  • health care, feeding, leg care, bandaging and massage
  • safety in handling, grooming and clipping the difficult horse
  • techniques and products for show grooming, braiding, clipping and trimming
  • show presentation details for all breeds and disciplines.
This second edition has charts that highlight correct show trim/braiding by breed, discipline and division for quick reference. In all, a book that George Morris recommends "to those sincere students of riding who want to make a comprehensive study of being a horseman."

From the Back Cover:

The Classic Equestrian Grooming Guide, now Completely Udated

Grooming to Win: How to Groom, Trim, Braid, and Prepare Your Horse for Show is the definitive book on grooming your horse to catch the judge's eye. Extensively revised to reflect today's practices, the Third Edition features over 400 detailed, two-color line drawings that illustrate every aspect of grooming. A practical, hands-on reference, it:

  • Brings all information in line with current practices and requirements

The spiral binding lays flat so it's easy for you to follow along step by step. Complete with helpful lists and checklists, this is the must-have reference for anyone who grooms horses for show.
