Book Description:
AMERICA'S HORSES profiles the two dozen horse breeds that sprang up in the United States, from Colonial times to today. Honoring not only the great horses that worked shoulder to shoulder with American pioneers, but also today's hottest breeds, this book highlights the sport horses, the working horses, the ponies, and the wild ones, giving a comprehensive history of each. Here are the histories of some of the most famous breeds, including the American Quarter Horse, the most popular equine on the planet; the Appaloosa, a colorful symbol of the West; and the Morgan, which traces back to a single versatile New England stallion. Here also are the rarer finds such as the Bashkir Curly, named for its distinctive coat; the American Cream (the only draft breed to originate in the U.S.), and the Azteca, with its Spanish ancestry. Fascinating trivia is included in each chapter, from breed characteristics, comparative breeds from outside the U.S., famous or notable within the breed, and celebrity riders. Additionally, the book provides full listings of breed associations and American equestrian organizations. Most breed books focus on the European breeds. AMERICA'S HORSES is the only book of its kind, proudly showcasing the rich development of the horse in this country.
