Plus feeding during competition, watering, nutrition, care after the horse returns home - what to do for the horse during the competition - how hard is he blowing? what is his recovery rate?

Also advice on how to travel a horse tacked up, how to sew a mane, how to pull a tail and much more... A very good resource and some good photos throughout - makes a great gift for the rider new to the show world who wants to make a great impression or for the aspiring groom that wants to learn the basics of all aspects.
Alison teaches and trains at The Yorkshire Riding Centre - training riders for competition and examinations - and rides point to point and events. The well respected Horse and Hound named her groom of the year in the UK - a truly challenging title to earn!
