If you want to limit modern contaminants and additives that affect your horse's health and vitality, develop an alternative approach to "natural management"--using techniques drawn from a growing understanding of the natural state in which horses have lived for centuries the world over. With informative tips, charts, and color illustrations on every page, the philosophy of natural management unfolds through sections on nutrition, health, environment, stable care, training, and breeding. You'll learn to combine the best of what nature intended a horse to be, with new methods for proper care, restoring wild field conditions, natural digestion, and organic feeding, while carefully removing unhelpful feed additives and supplements, plus prevention of infections, allergies, and dangers during mating and birth. A Main Selection of the Equestrian Book Club.
