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 horseshealth care, feeding, leg care, bandaging and massagesafety in handling, grooming and clipping the difficult horsetechniques and products for show grooming, braiding, clipping and trimmingshow 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.'Harris, Susan E. is the author of 'Grooming to Win How to Groom, Trim, Braid, and Prepare Your Horse for Show', published 1991 under ISBN 9780876058923 and ISBN 0876058926.
