Professional Care of the Racehorse: A Guide to Grooming, Feeding, and Handling the Equine Athlete (Revised Edition)" is a comprehensive manual providing instructions on all aspects of racehorse care. Taking care of a racehorse involves many facets -- from keeping the horse happy to recognizing any signs of lameness to knowing how to muck a stall. Author T. A. Landers, a former master groom turned trainer, breaks down all of these components in a clear, concise manner that will leave the reader feeling more confident in handling these magnificent animals. Photographs and step-by-step instructions detail procedures for everything from cleaning a stall to feeding to grooming and bathing. "Professional Care of the Racehorse" is intended for all people who work with horses.

T. A. Landers has written two other books -- "Career Guide to the Horse Industry" and "Insider's Guide to Horseracing." He now teaches the Groom Development Program at Belmont Park for the New York Thoroughbred Horsemen's Association. Landers resides in Floral Park, N.Y, near Belmont Park racetrack.

Advance praise for "Professional Care of the Racehorse":

" far the most well-written, comprehensive book on the subject."

-- Scott Savin, president, Gulfstream Park

"Written by a professional trainer, this is a complete guide to the health, attitude, and appearance of any horse. With its easily read style and illustrated instructions, it's a great reference to keep at your fingertips."
