Horses

Bob Langrish & Nicola Jane Swinney

This is one of those books that will take your breath away. There are 70 breeds featured in stunning full-page photographs, with informative histories of the animals alongside.

The lives of humans and horses have been intricately linked for thousands of years, with equines depicted in cave paintings dating back to 5000BC. Horses have been developed by humans for many purposes for war, for working in the field and in industry, for competitive sports events such as the Olympic Games, and as pets. Horses covers the world's most charismatic and iconic breeds, from the noble Arab and Akhal-Teke, through working breeds such as the mighty Percheron and diminutive Fell pony, to 'primitive' equines such as Przewalski's Horse and the Polish Konik. Each breed entry showcases a unique and beautiful equine breed, showing it in magnificent full-colour photographs; these are accompanied by a historical account of the breed's origins and history. More than 70 amazingly diverse breeds are featured.

Please note, this replaces Horses of the World, which was to be published on the natural history list of New Holland publishers, but got cancelled. 160 pages.
