The Green Guide for Horse Owners and Riders is available to download free in pdf / epub format.
Many horse lovers are looking for ways to make their facilities more environmentally friendly and to practice greener riding habits. Green methods are cost-efficient, they help preserve beautiful farms and pastures for future generations, and they provide healthier surroundings for both people and horses. The first book of its kind, The Green Guide for Horse Owners and Riders takes a clear look at current horse-care practices and provides green alternatives for day-to-day horsekeeping – both for the property owner who keeps dozens of horses and for the rider who rents a stall in someone else’s barn.
Property owners will find extensive information on building and renovating barns that use environmentally friendly materials, fit well into surrounding ecosystems, and work best with available water resources and prevailing weather conditions. All horsekeepers will appreciate the chapters that address the constant challenges of responsible pasture rotation and manure management.
