Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Graphs; Colour Photographs; Diagrams; From the cover: “This unique book brings together the four most important aspects of the veterinary care of the competition horse. Respected equine vet and author Colin Vogel examines each one in detail, showing how they are equally important in creating and maintaining optimum performance for every type of horse. He gives the facts on correct feeding, and exposes some of the misguided feeding practices still used by horse owners today. In helping owners choose the best training methods for their particular animal with the aim of achieving maximum fitness, he shows the wisdom of not pushing for too much too soon; and he provides for the first time a comprehensive guide to the causes and treatment of lameness, aimed specifically at owners of performance horses. He also demonstrates how all kinds of problems can be avoided by practising preventive medicine — vaccinations, worming programmes and correct stable management systems. The author’s gift for explaining complex scientific principles in a way that any horse owner can understand easily means that this book will become the competitor’s first point of reference on his or her route to achieving that elusive first prize.”
