25 Projects for Horsemen

Money Saving, Do-It-Yourself Ideas For The Farm, Arena, And Stable


Book Description

Owning a horse is one of life's great pleasures—and expenses. Here, finally, is a user-friendly and thoroughly illustrated one-stop shop of cost-saving ideas to help all horse owners (and/or their significant others) get more for their money than they ever imagined possible. 25 Projects for Horsemen is chock full of easy-to-follow, do-it-yourself projects for barn, riding arena, paddock, or pasture.

Numerous photos and schematic drawings accompany step-by-step instructions for everything from small, useful projects such as saddle stands and grooming boxes; to more ambitious undertakings such as barn and stall doors and making your own jumps. There are also indoor crafts projects involving sewing and cooking. With easy-to-read type and a convenient layout, 25 Projects for Horsemen will help all horsemen (and horsewomen)—whether one-horse backyard owners or professional, multi-horse barn managers, and Western- or English-style riders alike—to get those long-planned (or never dreamt of) projects off the drawing board without going bankrupt.
