We live on a ranch and I homeschool my two daughters (ages 14 & 16) who are excellent horse women. This text book is well written, contains great images and has excellent course work. Love that the information is in a format experienced and non-experienced horse lovers will appreciate. Also gives tons of education extension ideas and websites. Great textbook or horse book in general.
This book is well-written, easily comprehendable, and organized well. It is great for high school age without being so complex that it would be better suited to college. It has lots of illustrations, tables and other information to make it easier to comprehend and more useful in everyday life. One reviewer I read lamented that there was no resource with Question Keys, Tests, and Test Keys. There is!! It is called Classmasters and is on CD Rom. My copy has not yet arrived, so I cannot vouch for it. I have only one small complaint: this is the third edition, and a couple times the questiions at the end of the chapter asked about subjects no longer found in the text. Otherwise, this is a great choice.
I bought this book for my 17 year old daughter to supplement her equine mentorship program for homeschooling. What an outstanding textbook. Very well organized and attractive photos. Can easily be used for about 8th grade through 12th grade. The only downside is that there are no answers to the questions at the end of the chapters and no teacher's guide. This is definitely a textbook format and we both love the book. I have been homeschooling for 16 years and this is one of the best I have seen in a long time. You won't be sorry you bought it.
