Thousands of years ago people living on the grasslands of central Asia realised that horses could transport them long distances, help them fight their wars, pull their ploughs and provide them with sport and companionship. Ever since, horses and human history have been intertwined. There are all kinds of horses in this beautifully illustrated, fact-filled book. From fast horses like the Barb, which travelled to Spain from Africa in the early eighth century, to Mongolian war horses, this is a treasure trove of equine information and history.
