The Little Book of Horses describes the story of the horse including eventing, show jumping, dressage, polo, endurance racing, driving and hunting. Before this, however, the horse worked for man for thousands of years pulling ploughs, barges and carts in peace time and carrying kings, knights and soldiers into battle in war time. Its contribution to man’s history has not gone without recognition. Beautiful in appearance and elegant in motion, since ancient times the noble horse has been the subject of poetry, prose, paintings and sculpture. Little Book of Horses takes you on a tour of the most popular breeds of today, from American Quarter Horses to Shire and Welsh Horses. It is expertly written by Jon Stroud, one of the world’s top equestrian photographers.
