The life of a racehorse

The Racehorse
by Nikki Tate

The life of a racehorse is clearly depicted in this accessible book. Tate describes the racehorse's training regimen, the types of races that are run, and the care that the horses receive from riders, grooms, farriers and vets. She also explains how jockeys start their careers and explores some of the controversial aspects of racing like drug abuse and inbreeding.

An interesting and informative book.
