Written by a team of consultants who combine modern business knowledge with decades of direct experience of working in the equine industry, this book bridges the gap between modern business theory and equine business practice. After providing overviews of the equestrian industry and the livery sector as a detailed example, Part I (Assessing a Business) sets out how to access the business environment, externally, competitively and with regard to its internal resources. Part 2 (Management) goes on to deal with resource management and how to go about strategic planning and marketing, concluding with an overall Business Plan. Part 3 sets out a series of case histories to illustrate the principles as discussed in Part 1 and 2. No other book applies a truly modern business approach to equine enterprise. The Authors Sharon Eastwood, Anne-Lise Riis Jensen and Anna Jordon work together at Dark Horse Consultancy, a team of equine business consultants offering a wide range of advice and services to the industry.

This study book is aimed towards people who already own a horse and want to know more or people intending to own a horse in the future but would like a better understanding of the animal beforehand. Students who are due to start or are already studying an equine course will also benefit from this wealth of information. This collection of material can be used to prepare you for college to give you a head start or used as a source of information to refer back to alongside the course. With the freedom to study when it suits you and without the need to perform as you will not be assessed, there is no pressure on you so you can relax and enjoy your learning experience. Complete the questions at the back either as you get to them or as you complete each topic to see how much you have remembered. There are questions for the 'Going Further' sections too if you fancy more of a challenge!
