Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Schofler's guide to the Arabian horse show world is certainly detailed. Included, among other things, are diagrams of suggested conformation types, historical data, tips on what to do for show nerves, judging specifics for the various different disciplines (reining, saddle seat, hunter pleasure, halter, working cow, etc.) within the sport.. This is a richly varied resource with a lot of depth. It doesn't necessarily lend itself to reading all in one sitting, though!
