World Class GroomingIn World-Class Grooming for Horses, two of the best professional horse grooms in the business share their trade secrets for topnotch turnout and performance. Authored by Cat Hill and Emma Ford, this is the ultimate modern day guide for all riders who want their horses to look and feel their best. It contains more than 1,200 color photographs demonstrating how to clean the horse from nose to tail, wrap, clip, braid and ship him, prepare him for or present him in various English competitive scenarios, and care for him after work or showing so he is rested and ready to do it all again.

When owning, training, riding and showing horses, one usually aspires to a certain look. Often this look is set by the horses seen on television, at special events, in public performances and in top competitions around the globe. World-class turnout—a horse in peak condition, perfectly coiffed and luminous with good health, outfitted with gleaming and well-fitting tack appropriate for his sport—literally takes your breath away. While beautiful turnout can certainly play a significant role in a competitive rider’s success, it is just as appealing to have any horse beautifully turned out, whether he’s headed for an afternoon lesson or just out on the trail. 

But achieving this superior look is not just about clean tack, shiny brass, spotless stockings or perfect braids. The most important steps are found in the day-to-day, nitty-gritty of grooming and caring for the horse: noticing when something isn’t quite right before it becomes something wrong; brushing and combing and trimming a little every day so the horse’s skin and coat remain healthy and he always has a neat appearance. It is knowing how to prepare a horse properly for training sessions and how to cool him down well afterward. It’s protecting his body from injury at work or play and treating it when necessary. 

No one knows how to do all of this better than those working as professional grooms in the barns of the world’s top riders and trainers. It is the responsibility of these elite experts to keep their four-legged charges happy, healthy and primed for peak performance—in body and mind. Concealed spiral, 248 pages.

"Its actually aimed at everyone.  There's something for the beginner and professionals and it is not just focused on one discipline."
