Boots, Bandages and Studs

Description

The profusion of boots, bandages and studs on the market today provides the horse owner with a wide, but confusing, choice, and these support and protective devices can, if incorrectly used, damage the horses they are designed to protect. Boots, Bandages and Studs emphasizes the importance of the comfort of the horse and the safety of both horse and rider.

Vanessa Britton's comprehensive text gives the specific application of each boot and bandage and states which should be used for ridden work, traveling and injury. It describes how to fit the boots and the correct bandaging, and gives advice on the choosing of studs for a particular job and the protection of stud holes when the studs are not in use. This invaluable guide should be on the bookshelf of every rider, trainer and student.
