Guide To The Horses Of The World
All Books are second hand
Probably the most comprehensive single-volume guide to horse breeds available. It covers horses from all over the world: from Shetlnad ponies to thoroughbred racehorses, from Polish Tarpans, relics of the Ice Age, to Viennese Lippanzers. Over 200 breeds area described, most illustrated from specially commissioned studies. Included is a brief history of the horse, and useful information on horse buying, management and care. The author is an experienced horsewoman and one of the first British women to hold a jockey's permit.
