Overview

The horse is a creature of action: running, jumping, stopping, turning. To fully appreciate his beauty, you must see him perform working a cow, jumping a fence, hurtling around a track. In his newest project, photographer David R. Stoecklein takes you inside the world of performance horses, turning his lens upon the super-athletes of equestrian sport.
This book features brilliant competitors from all the major disciplines: reining, cutting, barrel racing, and roping; as well as hunter/jumper, three-day eventing, dressage, and driving. Racehorses and polo ponies also gallop across the pages. But the book offers even more than horses in action. The photographer goes behind the scene to capture poignant moments between equine athletes and their human companions. He also visits training and breeding farms to demonstrate what goes into the creation of a champion.
Journalist Jennifer Forsberg Meyer shares the thoughts and opinions of top riders, trainers, and breeders. They describe what makes each sport uniquely challenging, and what it takes for a horse to achieve greatness.
If you are a fan of one horse sport or many, or you simply love stunning portraits of magnificent horses, this book will quicken your pulse and impress you with the poetic grace and beauty of its subjects.
