This book not only defines and explains the essential terms, but it also offers valuable tips on their correct usage. For example, in the wide and per- plexing range of bits, The Lyons Press Horseman’s Dictionary tells how each bit works on the horse and the conditions under which it is appropriately used.
Among other subjects are familiar and exotic equine breeds, competitive disciplines and activities, tack and apparel, anatomy and health, and training techniques and equipment. All aspects of English and Western riding and driving are covered in easy-to-understand language.
Here is an important resource both for novices who want an explanation of unfamiliar terms and for experienced horsemen who are exploring new areas of equestrian sport.
