"Discover the world of horses--from their breeding to their important role in history"--Cover.
From the Publisher:
New Look! Relaunched with new jackets and 8 pages of new text!

Here is an original and exciting guide to the fascinating world of horses and ponies. Stunning, real-life photographs of horses, ponies, donkeys, mules, wild asses, and zebras offer a unique "eyewitness" view of these remarkable animals, their natural history and role in civilization. See an authentic Wells Fargo stagecoach, a 19th-century woman riding sidesaddle, a performing circus horse, and a real-life jousting tournament. Learn why horses flatten back their ears, how a blacksmith shoes a horse, how horses have been used in wartime, and how a horse's teeth show its age. Discover why a zebra has stripes, which wild asses are now extinct, what a Roman horseshoe looked like, the difference between an English and a Western saddle, what makes horses race, and much, much more.
