Editorial Reviews

VOYA
This is a multi-book review of two volumes in "The Horse Library" series. This series of eight books covers the horse using a similar format through five or six chapters. In Horse Breeds of the World, Kelley explains the physical evolution of the horse and proceeds to discuss many world breeds from the American Miniature at up to thirty-four inches tall to the Shire at seventeen to eighteen hands, some reaching nineteen. One hand equals four inches, and height is measured at the horse's withers, the highest point of the back. The smallest horse ever was a Miniature foaled in 1895, which grew to only fourteen and a half inches, a bit more than three hands. The inclusion of some photographs helps to put the breed description with a visual; however, a photograph for each breed discussed would have been even better. The Horse in War covers the origins of the cavalry horse from ancient Egypt to the death of the last U.S. cavalry horse in 1968. The invention of the saddle around 700 B.C. and the stirrup around the fifth century made for improved balance and speed, allowing the rider to concentrate on his weapons and fighting. Many other interesting factual tidbits can be gleaned here. The audience for this series, which also includes Horse Care and Health, Dressage, and Thoroughbred Racing, will be any horse-mad young reader. Because of their content brevity and juvenile look, they might be considered children's books, but they could be effective for the reluctant reader interested in horses. Glossary. Index. Photos. Further Reading. VOYA CODES: 3Q 2P M (Readable without serious defects; For the YA with a special interest in the subject; Middle School, defined as grades 6 to 8). 2002, ChelseaHouse, 64p. PLB

School Library Journal
Gr 4-8-These volumes will have the most appeal to readers who have more than a browsing interest in horses. In each one, solid information is delivered in dry, but clear writing. Jumping covers eventing, show jumping, and steeplechase competitions. This title and Western do a good job of explaining the rules governing the activities they cover and go into more detail than some single-volume encyclopedias on equestrian activities. Western Riding includes a quick history of the Pony Express; descriptions of rodeos; reining competitions; quarter-horse racing; and the horse in radio, television, and films (although the TV and movie cowboys get more mention than their trusty steeds). The plight of the wild mustangs is briefly touched upon and the relationship between the horse and Native Americans receives only a mention. Breeds covers the animal's evolution and extended members of its family. There are basic facts on 38 types from ponies to draft horses under the divisions of horses of the British Isles, Eastern Hemisphere, and Western Hemisphere. In all three titles, the mostly full-color photos are of good quality. Serviceable additions where books on horseback riding are in demand.-Carol Schene, Taunton Public Schools, MA Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
