A natural history of the behaviour and qualities of the horse

The Horse presents:
An in-depth study of the horse behaviour, including courtship, parenting, communication and learning.
A beautifully photographed directory, giving the essential information about 50 popular horse breeds.
A survey of how horses and humans have interacted since they were first domesticated, including the use of horses for work and for war in the past and training horses for competition or recreational riding today.
