What is the smallest breed of horse? Which horses were the favorites for medieval knights to ride? Why can’t the Camargue trot well? Where in the world did primitive horses die out 10,000 years ago?

Amazing Horses is a fact-packed introduction to 44 fascinating animals. From the Arabian which always runs with its tail held high to the Kabardin whose knees point outward, this book explores all kinds of animals from around the world.

Inside you’ll learn that Friesians are always black, that a Palomino is a color rather than a breed, and that mustangs are descended from the first horses brought to the Americas by Spanish explorers 500 years ago. And did you know that a Galician pony grows a moustache in old age?
