This book takes the reader through the different stages of buying or loaning a Connemara Pony and then covers all the requirements essential for care whether the pony is being kept on a livery yard or at home. This book covers all bases - feeding, watering, grooming, grassland management, veterinary care, breaking in a young horse, travelling and transport and saying goodbye - so that the reader can understand the challenges and excitement of owing a pony. It is written very much with the first time owner in mind from a writer who is very experienced at distilling sometimes complex and overwhelming information and presenting this to someone new to the subject.

The Meaning of Horses: Biosocial Encounters examines some of the engagements or entanglements that link the lived experiences of human and non-human animals. The contributors discuss horse-human relationships in multiple contexts, times and places, highlighting variations in the meaning of horses as well as universals of ‘horsiness’. They consider how horses are unlike other animals, and cover topics such as commodification, identity, communication and performance. This collection emphasises the agency of the horse and a need to move beyond anthropocentric studies, with a theoretical approach that features naturecultures, co-being and biosocial encounters as interactive forms of becoming. Rooted in anthropology and multispecies ethnography, this book introduces new questions and areas for consideration in the field of animals and society.
