'Noble Brutes' traces how the introduction of Eastern blood horses transformed early modern culture and revolutionized England's racing and equestrian tradition.More than two hundred Oriental horses were imported into the Brisish Isles between 1650 and 1750. With the horses came Eastern ideas about horsemanship and the relationship between horses and humans.
Landry's groundbreaking archival research reveals how these Eastern imports profoundly influenced riding and racing styles, as well as literature and sporting art.
