Overview


The smallest of horse breeds, usually standing less than 14 hands high (about 56 inches), ponies have a reputation for being gentle and intelligent. Able to endure harsh weather conditions and to survive on meager diets, they have been used by humans over the centuries for work and pleasure. They also make ideal mounts for children.
For this delightful coloring book, John Green has realistically rendered 42 of these remarkable animals. Ranging from the Shetland pony (one of the smallest of all equine varieties and perhaps the strongest of all horses in relation to its size) to the Zemaitukas pony from western Lithuania (mentioned as far back as the thirteenth century when it carried warriors on raids deep into Russian territory), the illustrations also depict the Haflinger, Welsh mountain pony, a Sable Island mare with her foal, as well as the Chincoteague, Camargue, Fjord, Bosnian, Caspian, Highland, Palomino, and 30 other breeds.
Engagingly portrayed with young and adult riders, grazing alongside a stream, racing across grasslands, and in other typical settings, the ponies are identified by accompanying fact-filled captions. An entertaining and educational book, Ponies of the World is sure to delight horse and pony lovers, as well as colorists of all ages.
