The Noble Horse

Hans D. Dossenbach, Author, Monique Dossenbach, Author, G K HALL, Author G. K. Hall & Company $75 (448p) ISBN 978-0-8161-8744-7
This volume may be the ultimate in the literature of the horse; both text and illustrations are outstanding. Monique and Hans Dossenbach, authors of Ponies of the World, cover every imaginable aspect of the horse from physiology to equestrian sports, with a generous treatment of the horse in history. They trace the development of modern breeds (including ponies) and equipment (saddles, shoes, carriages). There are sections on hunting, racing and dressage; on jumping and the three-day military event (with Olympic winners). They also examine the sport of driving, with descriptions of harnesses and competitive events. Then they discuss leisure-time riding, and, finally, turn to the last of the equestrian societies around the world. The wealth of detail and stunning photographs3000 illustrations, 700 in colormake this a dream book for the horse-lover. November
