Based on rich and illustrious traditions, equestrian pursuits are glamorous worlds unto themselves. In this high-stakes arena, aristocrats rub shoulders with movie stars and heads of state. This book profiles the trappings surrounding such exclusive pursuits as horse breeding, horse racing, polo and horse auctions. This glamorous domain offers visual treats ranging from finely tooled saddles and tackle to elaborate trophies. We also survey the wide variety of art based on the noble steed and the impeccable clothing and accessories required for these equestrian activities.
