Horse & Pony Breeds (Kingfisher Riding Club Series)by Sandy Ransford
The many different breeds of horses and ponies that exist today have evolved over generations. Their development has been affected by climate, environment, and lifestyle, as well as how they are used -- whether as workhorses or to ride for pleasure. This book will help the young horse enthusiast recognize and identify accurately the different breeds. Each horse or pony is beautifully photographed and accompanied by detailed descriptions of the history of the breed, as well as the particular characteristics, colors, and marking that distinguish that breed from any other. You do not need to own a horse or pony to love the Kingfisher Riding Club -- and this addition to the series will help anyone who wants to identify the many different breeds and types worldwide. Providing a wealth of in-depth information about a truly international collection of horses and ponies -- from the Swedish Warmblood and the Irish Connemara to the pure-bred Arabian stallion and American Saddlebred, from the Lipizzaner and Mustang to the Camargue and Falabella -- Horse & Pony Breeds gives children all the practical information they need to identify a horse or pony. The young equestrian already knows the pleasure of simply being around horses, and now they can experience the excitement of belonging to the Kingfisher Riding Club.
