The Ultimate Guide to Horse Breeds
covers the evolution of the horse. It has taken nearly 60 million years for the horse to evolve from its earliest form, Hyracotherium or Eohippus, to Equus caballus of the family Equidae, the modern horse, as we know it today. Eohippus (Dawn Horse) can be traced back to the Eocene period, between 56 and 34 million years ago, and is thought to have originated in Africa or Asia.
This guide also empowers horse owners as well as aficionados with tools on how to manage a stable, horse grooming, correct feeding, riding and training techniques.
Our landscape format Encyclopedia series in the 12 x 9 1/4 trim size have been so popular that we have created a more portable format for those who are interested in a smaller paperback edition. Beautifully illustrated throughout in full color. A great value and perfectly sized for gift giving.
