A pony-sized illustrated guide to the equine world.
Small enough to slip into your jodhpur boot, colorful enough to satisfy the most robust horse lover, Horses is a beautiful photographic keepsake. After an introduction outlining the horse's rich history, the first chapter follows horses across the seasons. The next two chapters are devoted to horses at work and horses at play. A superb portfolio for horse lovers, Horses lets us all ride along with these magnificent animals. Saddle up!
