Caring for the Older Horse (eBook)
This saying applies equally to horses. Intended for the horse owner who wishes to keep his horse fit and healthy for as long as possible, this book offers an abundance of invaluable advice and recommendations - including a feeding programme, massages for the well-being of the horse, as well as age-related exercises on the ground and under the saddle. From the contents: Signs of ageing: at what stage in its life does the horse become old? Feeding older horses: the higher standard of feeding required by the senior horse. Caring for older horses: how old horses like to be kept. Massages: a wellness programme for the oldie. Exercise: fun gymnastics for senior horses. And a subject which no owner likes to think about but which needs to be included: preparation for the last farewell.
