"Well done and very complete."- Bob Coleman, Ph.D./PAS, Extension horse specialist, Cooperative Extension Service, College of Agriculture, University of Kentucky
"... an outstanding one-stop source for relevant and detailed information on all aspects of building a new horse facility or making additions to an existing horse facility. Especially important are the chapters discussing site planning/preparation and environmental controls, as these critical issues are often overlooked by horse owners during the design and building process."- Debra J.Hagstrom, M.S., equine Extension specialist, Dept. of Animal Science, University of Illinois
