f you are thinking about entering the horse business or would like some tips on making an existing equine business even better, this is a book you'll want to read.
ith 70,000 copies of this volume now in print, this updated edition is even more useful than the original released in 1997. You'll find expanded sections on safety, rules for boarders, what to look for in a school or camp horse, specifics on starting a carriage business, guidelines on staffing and much, much more.
hether it is a discussion of equine enterprises (riding camps and breeding to boarding or operating a tack shop) or how to manage your property to keep it profitable (cutting costs without cutting corners), the author provides a lot to think about and consider.
f you just find two or three of the ideas (sell composted bedding and manure, or where to place business cards and brochures) presented in this inexpensive volume useful, it will have paid for itself.
