Humane Society of the United States Publishes Comprehensive Guide on Caring for Horses

(April 11, 2008) — The Humane Society of the United States Press has announced the release of The Humane Society of the United States Complete Guide to Horse Care, an educational resource for first-time and experienced horse owners. The book includes information on how to choose a horse; meeting a horse’s physical, emotional and nutritional needs; an overview of horse breeds and disciplines; and advice to help guide horse owners through good decision-making at all stages of a horse’s life.

Coauthor Erin Harty, a lifelong horsewoman and former Chronicle of the Horse online forums moderator and administrator, and equine experts on the HSUS staff have collaborated to produce an engaging and easy-to-read overview of the joys, costs and responsibilities of horse ownership.

“The Humane Society of the United States Complete Guide to Horse Care provides straightforward information relevant to all breeds and disciplines of horses,” said Keith Dane, director of equine protection for The HSUS. “We hope that this book will inspire all horse owners — from the novice to expert, English to Western — to embrace the special bond we have with horses, and to create a physical and emotional environment that provides their equine companion with the best care possible.”

The HSUS Equine Protection program works to educate the public about responsible horse ownership, reduce and prevent equine suffering and cruelty, and raise awareness about issues affecting equines. The Humane Society of the United States Complete Guide to Horse Care is the cornerstone of the organization’s “Horses: Companions for Life” program.
