Horses are celebrated around the globe for their beauty, grace and power. Dreaming of Horses features spreads on a multitude of breeds, and is packed with stunning photographs of each breed in its color varieties, including at least one full-body image of the horse in motion. Descriptive text tells the story of the breed from its beginnings; its role in the histories of kings and wars, peasants and industry; the characteristics for which it is prized; and how it rose from humble working horse to elite companion and valuable performer. A fact file notes the basics of height, color, character, and color photographs displaying the unique brilliance of the most popular breeds. Text describes what makes each breed individual - its origin, history, how climate and terrain shaped its physical features and temperament, how it lives today and its interaction with humans, and how all of these influences have contributed to its unique strength, skill, grace and of course, beauty. With breathtaking photographs that will awe and inspire, this collection will enrapture anyone with a love of these magnificent creatures.
