From avoiding toxins in feed, fly sprays, cleaning products, and medicines to practicing good trail-riding etiquette, anyone who spends time with horses will find simple and rewarding ways to be kinder to the earth Author Heather Cook gives readers countless ideas for lowering the impact horses and horse keeping facilities have on the surrounding environment. Sell composted horse manure (recycle and reuse!); replace old incandescent light bulbs with compact fluorescents; use empty grain bags as garbage bags. There are dozens of simple ways to make a difference every day.
