This comprehensive study book has been put together for you to gain knowledge of the equine industry and to help give you a leg up onto your equine career ladder. The study provides essential information which is useful to have when working with horses and it will also look good from a potential employer's point of view if you already have a good understanding of the basics so they don't have to start training you from scratch. There is also a 'Going Further' section to this book where you can study in more depth, giving you a higher level of knowledge and understanding which can only help to improve your chances of impressing that future employer! This study book is aimed towards people who already own a horse and want to know more or people intending to own a horse in the future but would like a better understanding of the animal beforehand. Students who are due to start or are already studying an equine course will also benefit from this wealth of information. This collection of material can be used to prepare you for college to give you a head start or used as a source of information to refer back to alongside the course. With the freedom to study when it suits you and without the need to perform as you will not be assessed, there is no pressure on you so you can relax and enjoy your learning experience. Complete the questions at the back either as you get to them or as you complete each topic to see how much you have remembered. There are questions for the 'Going Further' sections too if you fancy more of a challenge!
