Equine reproduction has been revolutionized by many aspects of new technology since the 1990s. The advancements in veterinary care and expertise available to breeders are remarkably complex and, in many cases, bewildering. The aim of this book is to explain, in layman's terms, the basic fundamental principles that help form the day-to-day management of a successful breeding operation, regardless of size.

This book covers all aspects of routine stud care, from the basics of anatomy and physiology, through to pregnancy and foaling. The emphasis is on the management of the breeding horse throughout the stud year, as well as the care and early preparation of young stock. It also includes sections on aspects of stud work that are often overlooked, such as choosing a suitable broodmare, normal and abnormal breeding behavior, as well as a section on stud design and administration. "Equine Stud Management" is designed specifically as a first textbook for equine students and prospective horse breeders. As a useful, practical foundation text, this book covers the syllabuses for both NVQ and BHS related examinations. Anyone wishing to learn more about breeding horses and ponies should find this manual a useful introduction to the subject.
