From horse history to the future of the horse industry, Equine Science, second edition is replete with chapter topics and special features designed to make teaching and learning about horses easier for instructors and students. Chapters are well-organized and cover a wide range of topics such as breeds, anatomy, movement, nutrition, health management, behavior, training, and equitation. Attention is also given to management practices, business aspects, and career opportunities. Chapters start with a list of learning objectives to help students identify main concepts. Key words at the beginning of each chapter prompt students to look for these in the reading where they are defined. Sidebars, tables, charts, graphs, and illustrations also enrich the material and provide important references at-a-glance. Review questions, activities, and Web site resources at the end of each chapter give students the opportunity to test their understanding and apply what they learn.
