The Bottom Line

I really enjoyed this book and it would make a great addition to a new horse owner's collection. Definitely one to keep out on the coffee table to be enjoyed in small bits.

Guide Review - Horse Lover's Daily Companion

365 Days of Tips and Inspiration for Living a Joyful Life with Your Horse

Every page in this book holds a tidbit of information about horse care, horse breeds, sports or trivia. The book is set up to be read one page a day. There's even a ribbon bookmark attached to the spine so you can keep your place. Horse Lover's Daily Companion is also liberally sprinkled with lovely photographs by photographer Tom Sapp.

The only downside to the photos is that they often don't correspond to the information on the same page. For example, on page 59 the article is about the Pony Express. The photo on the same page however, is a huntsman with hounds. I think the book could have been enhanced by better placement of the pictures.

But despite the incongruity, Horse Lover's Daily Companion is a very informative and entertaining book. I found myself leafing through it while eating my breakfast as the book is easy to pick up and put down, without losing any sort of 'story'.
