Horse enthusiasts of all ages and skill levels are fascinated by the history, characteristics, and abilities of various breeds. Unfortunately, most current breed books are written for European readers and feature horses that are rare or nonexistent in North America. A truly complete book on all the special horses of North America has never been available - until now. Here is the most comprehensive guide, featuring in-depth profiles and photographs, to 96 breeds that call North America home. Readers will find home grown favourites, such as the Morgan, Appaloosa, and Quarter Horse, along with the less-known Nakota, McCurdy Plantation, and Florida Cracker horses. They'll also meet the imported breeds that have influenced native bloodlines and become part of the fabric of our history, such as the Thoroughbred, Arabian, and Percheron, as well as more exotic introductions such as the Mangalarga Marchador and the Selle Francais. Covering colour breeds, light horses, heavy horses, ponies, donkeys, and mules, author Judith Dutson offers fascinating insight into the purpose each was bred for and where it is now found in North America.

From the Back Cover:

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.

About the Author:

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.
