Caring for the Horse's Teeth and Mouth
The secrets of the horse’s teeth and mouth are revealed in this highly illustrated book. Whether using horses for work, sport or pleasure, the bit and bridle form a necessary connection with the horse at the site of the mouth. It is known that problems with the mouth and teeth and resulting discomfort can affect the horse’s ability to carry the bit correctly, receive aids from his rider and perform to the best of his ability.
In this comprehensive book readers are provided a tutorial in the basic construction of the equine mouth and teeth, they are also educated in the many problems that may develop and how to identify and treat- as well as prevent – them. A discussion of modern dental care, how often is it necessary and special cases such as older equines and miniature horses, rounds out this thoroughly practical, educational text.
