Horse lovers will enjoy this book with its lavish illustrations. As the author notes, horses have served as working animals since ancient times. They have also afforded much pleasure through disciplines including show jumping, dressage and cross country. From large horses to ponies there are many breeds, each suited to its job and rider.
After a section on many aspects of horsemanship, including preparing for shows, the book goes on to show gorgeous photos of breeds, along with information about each horses’ features, uses, origin and distribution and more. The book ends with photos of horses in action.
This is a lovely book for a horse lover, whether new to riding and interested in the breeds of horses. or a more knowledgeable reader who would enjoy spending more time with horses.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this book in exchange for an honest review.
