Storey’s Illustrated Guide to 96 Horse Breeds of North America
It is impossible to imagine the history of North America without the horse. For more than 500 years, horses have served as workers and warhorses, as companions and partners. In this first-ever comprehensive tribute, equestrian author and expert Judith Dutson captures the spirit of these noble animals and provides a wealth of information about each breed’s particular history, special uses, conformation standards, and much more. Handsome, full-color action photographs and explanatory drawings enliven every page.
This 96-breed panorama covers North America's remarkable diversity of horse breeds, from the popular and well known to the rare and obscure.
