Publisher Comments:

The clearest recognition guides available The Smithsonian Handbook of Horses is packed with 250 vivid full-color photographs of more than 100 horse breeds. The authoritative and systematic photographic approach, with words never separated from pictures, marks a new generation of field guides. This book is designed for all those who love horses. The Smithsonian Handbook of Horses traces the evolution of equines, explains the difference between horses and ponies, looks at how different breeds evolved or were selectively developed, and examines equine anatomy and behavior. A visual identity key helps you recognize the different horse breeds and guides you to the correct entry. Each entry combines a concise description with annotated photographs to highlight the main characteristics and distinguishing features, with details on color, country or region of origin, uses, and breed history. Finally, a concise glossary provides instant understanding of equine terms.
