THE LYONS PRESS HORSEMAN’S DICTIONARY

Full Explanations of More than 1,000 Terms and Phrases Used by Horsemen Past and Present

STEVEN D. PRICE AND JESSIE SHIERS

The Lyons Press Horseman’s Dictionary is a one-stop comprehensive reference book that defines and illustrates more than 1,000 words and phrases encountered throughout the horse world, including recent additions such as PMU foal, rollkur, and hooking on. 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.

Steven D. Price, a consulting editor of the Lyons Press, is the author of more than thirty books. He lives in New York City.

Jessie Shiers is the author of 101 Horsekeeping Tips and 101 Hunter/Jumper Tips, and the editor of Incredible Horse Tales. She lives in Maine.
