I found this book to be a great resource for horse owners and also for anyone who is just curious about horses. Not only is the book full of facts and common sense about horses, but Tanya has dispelled the many rumors that are frequently passed around and that contain truly dangerous advice. Dealing with a horse can indeed be life threatening , especially in today's world where anyone who has ridden a horse is able to hang up a shingle saying they are a trainer. It is refreshing to read something that tells the whole truth, and clearly explains the whys behind that truth. I would recommend this book to everyone I know and I think it would be a wonderful prize to give out at horse events. I will be giving this book to my students and especially to 4H groups I visit. Thank you, Tanya, for putting your vast knowledge into this great common sense guide for horse people that is well organized and easy for anyone to read and understand, and is much needed in today's world.

What a great idea for getting out safety information! This book is light, funny and VERY informative! There is a lot of information in here that most horse people already know, but I would still recommend that ALL horse people get it! You never know when you might find that one little gem that you just needed a light, non-confrontational way of telling you DON'T DO THAT! Tanya has a great way of putting everything down so you truly want to read this book. The best thing - it is laid out in basic chapters. You do not have to sit down and read it all at once to get anything out of it. Each chapter has great information in it.
