    Default Care

    My new year's resolution was to be the best possible owners for my horses. With that said I'm trying to figure out everthing I need to know to properly care and train them. Topics worth buying a book about or a specific title if you know one... things I should look more into and know like equine diseases. Things that you must own if you have a horse. Basically anything. Thanks you for any helpful feed back.

    The Pony Club manuals would be an excellent place to start. You can probably find them used cheap.

    A riding instructor/trainer would be good, too. Someone you can ask for advice who gets to know you and your horses.

    Cayleigh-After a semi train wreck with a Parelli thread, why are you now here, acting wide eyed and listening.
    Some riders change their horse, they change their saddle, they change their teacher; they never change themselves.

    It's a new year. We all get to make a fresh start. Give her a break, maybe some useful advice, instead of being nasty.

    I second the pony club manuals, and really anything you can get your hands on... The funny thing about horeses is that there are a million opinions out there, and the more you can educate yourself, the easier it will be to find the right way for you. Good luck!
    where are we going, and why am I in this hand basket?

    Read all three pony club manuals. They will give you some information on a wide range of topics- then you can look for specific books in the areas you want to know more about.
