About the Author

Elwyn Hartley Edwards was editor of Riding magazine for 18 years and consultant editor of Horse and Hound for five years. He still contributes regularly to a number of journals and magazines. He is the author of over 30 books on the subject of horses and ponies, including Dorling Kindersley's The Ultimate Horse Book, and the critically acclaimed The Encyclopedia of the Horse. Elwyn's lifelong interests have been the history of man's relationship with the horse, and the training of horses and riders. He lectures extensively and regularly judges at shows in the UK and overseas, visiting India, a country with which he has long-standing family connections, each year. Formerly a member of the Council of the British Horse Society, he was presented with the BHS Award of Merit in 1993.
