Dust jacket notes: "Every year sees the spread of show classes for the heavy horse in arenas throughout the world. The exclusivity of the show ring is based, not on rank or privilege, but simply on one's ability to bring out a big animal in the best possible condition, to fit him temperamentally for the occasion and to 'dress' him overall to the highest possible standard. Here is a book which will enable any enthusiast to achieve his goals at show, providing he allies the information given to an abundance of hard work, care and concern for his horse. Opening with a chapter on the lure of showing, the book goes on to inform on buying and training, before a detailed appraisal on show preparation. Following this are chapters on the decorated classes, vehicles and then, a vital aspect, the manner in which the judging is conducted and factors which the adjudicators consider before reaching their decision. Other subjects dealt with are Open Days, farriery competitions and ploughing matches, and there then follows an extremely useful chapter on photographing horses to their best advantage. Appendices give a wealth of information on societies, show lists and commemorative items and a bibliography, glossary and index complete the book. For those with a love of the heavy horse and an enthusiasm to show the animal as well as they are able, this will prove an invaluable book." Hardcover, dark green boards with gilt lettering, 7.5 x 10 inches, 144 pages, 92 black and white photographs, 4 pages colour photographs.
