The most trusted nonfiction series on the market, Eyewitness Books provide an in-depth, comprehensive look at their subjects with a unique integration of words and pictures. Readers of this book will find this smorgasbord of equine facts fascinating. Each double-page spread contains a brief theme paragraph that describes the topic, along with captioned photos of horses, reproductions of the animal found in art and artifacts, and related equestrian gear.
Subjects include history, anatomy, physiology, breeds, colors, and uses of horses, asses, mules, and zebras. In the hodgepodge of captions, a few errors surfaced: a spur is identified as a stirrup, a gelding described as a mare, a running martingale as a curb rein, a Kimberwicke bit as a bridoon, and a piaffe as a flying lead change.
