T.J. Gillespie, growing up in the county of Sligo on the west coast of Ireland, saw horses all around him and took them for granted. Some enchanted day, he knew he must learn more so, he listened and watched and read, and thought out the prevailing wisdom. He put theory to the test, seeing what worked, gathering experience and not sparing himself in the effort for perfection. He devised and presented a very popular series of Horse and Pony Management courses, under the County Meath VEC Adult Education scheme, thereby gaining insight into other owners' problems and points of view. Now, he shares his unique experience of working with horses in this easy-to-follow, step-by-step guide with illustrations and diagrams throughout
