 About the Book 

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 worlds 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 Przewalskis 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 breeds origins and history. More than 70 amazingly diverse breeds are featured.
