The Encyclopedia of the Horse takes the reader through a fascinating journey: the development and domestication of this majestic creature. The horse's evolution, from early pre-Equus to the Thoroughbred, is covered in striking full-color photographs, produced by experts who traveled the world in search of the perfect specimen to illustrate each breed. The captivating text is rich with historical insight and anecdotes, supplemented by exquisite illustrations from museums and scholarly sources. No other single volume brings together the wealth of information to be found here, covering every aspect of the equestrian world--from the horses ridden by the Mongol conquerors to the grace of dressage to the beloved Clydesdales featured in parades.
