Grooming to Win : How to Groom, Trim, Braid, and Prepare Your Horse for Show written by Susan E. Harris commentary by Claudia Beaudet from Amherst, MA This is one of the best books that I've found that explains grooming your horse step by step - not only for the show ring, but for everyday maintenance. Ms. Harris details breed protocols for the show ring (good news for the novice showman!). Did you know that it is considered bad form to braid the hunter on the left side of the neck, and vice versa for western pleasure horses? From achieving that showring bloom to step by step braiding guides, this book is a must for any competitive horseman's book collection!
