Showmanship is not only a required horse show class for 4-H members, but also a popular division for youth and adult amateurs in open and breed shows. We're very pleased to offer the first book that covers this subject thoroughly. It is a "must read" for everyone who participates in Showmanship.From the Inside Flap:
To the purchasers of this book: I commend you on your choice. You have made an invaluable purchase that will help you for many years to come. This book will be a valuable reference in your equine library with its systematic approach to learning.
To Laurie, I thank you for taking your valuable time to write this book so that the rest of us may read and learn from your enormous wealth of knowledge and experience. You have the enviable ability to simplify in words tasks that are sometimes very complicated.
This book, in its straightforward manner, is written with the novice in mind, yet does not forget those who participate at the bigger breed shows and seek to improve their skills. It will develop your expertise, educate you and encourage you to participate in an event that you may have felt is only for the most experienced of horsemen and women. Following this step-by-step approach, even the greenest novice can soon be showing competitively.
And for moms and dads of a "wannabe" youth exhibitor, here is your answer —help with the basics of showmanship.
