Horse Sense and Nonsense: A Survival Guide for Horse Lovers based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
There are a lot of more in-depth, informative books about horse care on the market, but this one combines incredibly detailed, hysterical illustrations with painfully truthful observations about owning and riding a horse. Sometimes the text strays into almost being too instructional. I'd rather it just stuck to being funny, which it does most of the time. A quick, easy read that's sure to make anyone who knows anything at all about horses laugh.
