Melanie is renowned horsewoman and Olympic gold medalist who still teaches others what she has spent a lifetime learning. This comprehensive resource will inspire and instruct horse owners from all walks of life and disciplines. I had read the book when it was first published, and was thrilled to have the chance to read it again and absorb some of its knowledge.
