Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The Ultimate Horse Book should be subtitled ``the ultimate horse photography book.'' A brilliantly conceived and executed work, this book has captured in color photos what other horse books have previously illustrated in drawings or descriptive text. What an amazing difference the color photo of a horse's hoof makes in comparisn to the usual line drawing of the various parts of the hoof. In presenting the different breeds, double - page color shots are used and include insets of photos of the same horse to illustrate various parts of the confirmation. What an improvement and how long overdue! Although this book uses the same basic format and informational layout as The Complete Horse Book ( LJ 10/15/91), edited by Elwyn Edwards and Candida Geddes, its illustrations alone are worth the purchase. Recommended for all equine collections. This will be a classic.-- Anne A. Salter, Atlanta Historical Soc . Lib.
