Description - Horse Breeds by Samantha Johnson
In the field or the stable, on the trail or the show circuit or the race course, horses have a firm place in our culture, our history, and our hearts. This beautifully illustrated book profiles the most popular breeds, from the diminutive ponies and multitude of light horses to the eye-catching color breeds and the gentle giants such as Clydesdales and Percherons. With descriptions of each breed, accompanied by exquisite photographs, the book constitutes an essential visual reference for anyone with an interest in horses. From the Belgian draft horse to the Arabian stallion, from the Norwegian Fjord pony to the American Shetland; from the American Quarter Horse to the Thoroughbred to the National Show Horse, this survey of horse breeds the world over is one that horse lovers will want to pore over, page through, and return to again and again.
