If you are new to owning a horse and need to learn the basics (buying, riding, feeding, selling), then this book is for you. The book explains each point in short, easy-to-listen-to paragraphs, so you will not miss anything important.
Additionally, this book explains that horses have feelings, providing a helpful human equivalent to better understand the horse's position. Horses are intelligent creatures, not push-button machines. A horse's feelings can be compared to a human's feelings. Just like humans, horses are individuals with minds of their own.
