This is like the First Aid book you always should have in your medicine cupboard ... but for horses. And it’s not so much a first aid book but a reference for the large and small scale rescue that might come before the First Aid. In any case I think it is ESSENTIAL for EVERY SINGLE HORSE OWNER.
If for no other reason than to give you a clue about the trouble your horse can get himself into; it might also minimise your shock and allow you respond farm more efficiently and calmly.

Horses Of The Storm tells the story of the volunteers who took part in the largest Equine Rescue ever staged in the United States after Hurricane Katrina slammed into Southern Louisiana and other parts of the Gulf Coast.
Written by Ky Mortensen, director of advancement at the Louisiana State University Equine Health Studies Program, the book is a personal account of the devastation wrought by Katrina, the thousands of volunteers who rescued horses and the horses themselves.

I personally think it would be a very good idea if every horse owner who lives online in forums and FB groups was given a copy of this book.
The Horse and the Law (THATL) is an Australian book written about Australian Laws and would have been written predominantly for race horse owners and breeders. However, as the law makes no distinction between racing and non racing horses it is also a useful book for domestic horse owners and breeders ... not to mention ancillary industries such as transport, vets, trainers, agistment operators etc.

I've been wanting to go bitless for ages so when NoBit Bridles sent me a bridle to try I seized the reins – so to speak – of opportunity with both hands.
Driving home from work, and very much looking forward to trying my new bridle, it occurred to me that half the reason people might not try going "bitless" is that we have a strong mental association of a bit equalling "stop". As if it is some guarantee.

Bringing a clipped horse in from Europe and with Melbourne’s legendary changeable weather in mind, I was in need of some light summer protection for my new steed.
The Caribu Eclipse 1200 Denier Rainsheets have been one of Caribu’s most popular rug designs – and they have just made it even better. Caribu has a genuine commitment to listen to their customers; the Eclipse MarkII combo has been based on what their customers want in a waterproof combo.
For my purposes I needed a lightweight waterproof rug and the Eclipse MarkII was just the ticket.

In Spring last year I went looking for a software package that would let me keep track of all the horses coming and going from my property in the upcoming breeding season.
From previous experience I knew that it can be very useful to record every event that happens with a particular horse and sometimes even more useful is to be able to keep a diary. I also like to record as much of the horse’s individual details as possible, keep the owner contact details, and add photos. Essentially I wanted a program to do it all.
