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.
Judith Dutson owns and operates Horsefeather Farm, a care facility for horses recovering from surgery or illness, in Plain City, Ohio. She is also a research assistant in the Veterinary Clinical Sciences Department at Ohio State University. Dutson holds a master’s degree in behavior genetics from the University of Connecticut. She is the author of Horse Breeds of North America and Storey’s Illustrated Guide to 96 Horse Breeds of North America.
