Introduction to Horse Biology

Many students have only a limited knowledge of biology before starting a variety of equine courses, from BHS stages to National Certificate and Diploma and HND/degree. Introduction to Horse Biology provides all the information students of equine subjects require, particularly those without a GCSE or A level in biology.

This book will be invaluable to all students of equine subjects including First Diploma, National Diploma, National Certificate, Higher National Diploma and Higher National Certificate and all students studying for BHS or other equine related examinations. It is also ideal for serious horse owners searching for a better understanding of horses and how they function.
