From a Swedish friend here I borrowed this book (she told me very enthousiastic she also has an english book in stead of all the swedisch horse books
). I started reading it now and I like it very much. Its the basics of biology, narrowed down to the species Equus caballus (horse). This is written about it:
Many students have only a limited knowledge of biology before starting a variety of equine courses, from BHS stages to National Certificate and Diploma and HND/degree. Introduction to Horse Biology provides all the information students of equine subjects require, particularly those without a GCSE or A level in biology. This book will be invaluable to all students of equine subjects including First Diploma, National Diploma, National Certificate, Higher National Diploma and Higher National Certificate and all students studying for BHS or other equine related examinations. It is also ideal for serious horse owners searching for a better understanding of horses and how they function. The author Zoe Davies is a former lecturer in equine science, a consultant equine nutritionist, author and external examiner for higher education courses. She has substantial experience in equine management and training.
Its written by Zoe Davies and is in English. The total titel is: Introduction to Horse Biology
he has also written another book; Equine Science. Does somebody know this one? Maybe I will order it (but that will be in summer, when I have worked a little bit again
Another good book I have been reading is Equine Exercise Physiology. Very interesting for everybody, but for me as an distance rider in exeption. This one is written by Kathryn Nankervis , David Marlin and co-autheur: Kathryn Nankervis. Its also in English.
