This handy guide provides a comprehensive reference to tack and horse clothing, and considers general and specialist pieces of equipment in all areas of horsemanship, for riders of all levels. With a directory-style approach, the book looks at the complete range of horse equipment. Photographs of the available models for each item and clear descriptions of usage help you make an informed choice about what to buy. The book outlines the appearances and functions of all the different styles of riding activities. Over 450 photographs illustrate the book, capturing the magic of superbly crafted leather saddlery and the practical benefits of synthetic materials and contemporary designs. For novice riders, there are how-to, step-by-step sequences on fitting and removing the saddle, bridle and bit, rugs and boots, and how to care for them to ensure they remain in top condition for a good many years.Biografía del autor:
