Product Overview

No other animal has shared in our recreational activities to the same extent as the horse...This book covers all the various equestrian sports, giving an account of their history and development up to the present day.

The many different forms of horse-racing are described in detail, from Irish Hunt to American trotting and pacing events. Another chapter reflects the recent popularity of show jumping, and discusses the horse and riders that have become household names.

The Horse in Sport also deals with carriage-driving, dressage, polo, hunting, endurance riding, Three-Day Eventing, and the thrills and spills of rodeo. The illustrations are breathtaking - 200 colour plates show the beauty of the horse in action, and highlight its natural relationship with man.
