In Before Your Horse Comes Home: Introductory Horse Care for Beginners, Meredith Hill explains how to prepare for horse care. She begins by telling readers how she came to love horses despite her urban upbringing and gleaned practical and theoretical knowledge from any source she could access. Hill repeatedly reminds readers that horses experience significant variations in temperament, diet, health issues, and many other aspects. She acquaints prospective horse owners with the myriad challenges of owning horses. As she rightly points out, prospective owners have a choice when purchasing a horse; the horse does not. Therefore, it is not a decision to take lightly. She provides a comprehensive list of actions that need to be completed before the horse comes home. The book ends with a list of resources that any horse owner will find beneficial.
Before Your Horse Comes Home is essential reading for anyone planning to care for horses; Meredith Hill’s love for horses is clearly evident. Anyone who reads this book will fall in love with horses.

There are separate sections for the essential requirements like water, diet, daily routines, and medical care. She also discusses the pros and cons of keeping the horse at home versus boarding the horse. Readers planning to enter this uncharted territory will be ably guided by Before Your Horse Comes Home.
