Storey's Illustrated Guide to 96 Horse Breeds of North America Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A complete book on all the horses of North America has never been available—until now. Here is the comprehensive guide, featuring in-depth profiles and photographs, to 96 breeds that call North America home.

You'll find homegrown favorites, such as the Morgan, Appaloosa, and Quarter Horse, along with the less-known Nakota, McCurdy Plantation, and Florida Cracker horses. You'll also meet the imported breeds that have influenced native bloodlines and become part of the fabric of our history, such as the Thoroughbred, Arabian, and Percheron, as well as more exotic introductions such as the Mangalarga Marchador and the Selle Français. Covering color breeds, light horses, heavy horses, ponies, donkeys, and mules, author Judith Dutson offers fascinating insight into the purpose each was bred for and where it is now found in North America.

Book News Annotation:

Dutson's comprehensive guide is written for the American horse aficionado, and covers the range of breeds found in the United States from Shetland Ponies to Clydesdales. Color photographs and illustrations accompany each listing, which explains breed characteristics, utility, appearance and color. Desirable and undesirable traits are shown in illustrations. Appendices include genetics of color, brands, breed associations and a timeline of equine history. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

It is impossible to imagine the history of North America without the horse. For more than 500 years, horses have served as workers and warhorses, as companions and partners. In this first-ever comprehensive tribute, equestrian author and expert Judith Dutson captures the spirit of these noble animals and provides a wealth of information about each breed's particular history, special uses, conformation standards, and much more. Handsome, full-color action photographs and explanatory drawings enliven every page.

This 96-breed panorama covers North America's remarkable diversity of horse breeds, from the popular and well known to the rare and obscure.

Synopsis:

Devoted to the horses of North America, this comprehensive guide features in-depth profiles and photographs of 96 breeds. From homegrown natives to the imported breeds, Dutson presents the incredible history of the horse in North America.
