Gr. 3^-8. A wide variety of illustrations combined with brief sections of text in a mix of styles and sizes of typeface give readers a broad sampling of information on horses and horsemanship. Labeled drawings document sections on horse anatomy, diet, care, and grooming as well as tack. Other features include a world map noting horse origins and migration patterns; charts of breeds, types, and sizes of horses, accompanied by comparative color illustrations; and photographs and reproductions of works of art and historical documents illustrating the horse's place in mythology, warfare, transportation, and farm work. An overview of pleasure and competitive riding includes tips on evaluating riding schools and stables. Although the wide scope precludes treating any aspect of the topic in depth, the handsome format and numerous illustrations will spur interest and give horse lovers much to pore over.
