Equine Welfare Reviews

"The book is written in an easy to comprehend style and the chapters are concise. It does a good job of capturing readers' attention and provides pertinent information. Few books are specific to equine welfare; I would recommend this one for the library of anyone involved in the field of equine medicine or equine/animal welfare." (Doody's, 7 October 2011)
