Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Horses of all breeds, colors, shapes, and sizes are perennially fascinating to equine enthusiasts of all ages. Collected in a perfect little pocket guide no horse lover will be able to resist, here are images of 96 breeds that call North America home — galloping, playing, grazing, working, or simply striking a pose.

For each breed readers will find a full-page photograph accompanied by at-a-glance conformation and historical facts. A small map shows where the breed originated, and additional information includes the horse’s special qualities and its most common uses. Homegrown favorites such as the Morgan, Appaloosa, and the less-well-known Nakota and Florida Cracker horses are featured along with imported breeds that have influenced native equine bloodlines, such as the Thoroughbred, Arabian, and Percheron.

From the very large (the mighty Shire) to the very small (the tiny Miniature), and everything in between, never has such a range of horse fact and photography been packed into such an appealingly small gift book. This 96-breed survey covers North America’s remarkable diversity of horse breeds, from the popular and well-known to the rare and obscure.

Synopsis:
