    Loved it so much we're buying one for my daughter as a holiday gift

    My 7 year old took this book out from the library and devoured it -- she spent hour upon hour sifting through its pages on various breeds, determining which type of horse she might want when she gets older. The lovely pictures and condensed yet useful descriptions drove her to read much longer than she otherwise might have.

    Great Overview of Breeds and horse history

    This was a comprehensive yet condensed decription of these breeds. The beginning of the book covers history of the horse as well as how they got to North America. Great book to overview horse breeds for anyone interested in horses. Beautiful pictures-would make great coffee table book. My teenage daughter loves this book as do I!

    Highly Recommended

    I love this book. It has everything (well, almost everything) you need to know about any kind of breed. I plan on using this book for when I'm ready to get a horse of my own, and even when I'm ready to start in a mixed animal vet clinic. This book is awesome!!
