This book has so many facts that are uncomplicated, but informative. It has beautiful pictures in it. Sometimes we just look at the pictures of horses because they are so beautiful. It covers almost every topic about horses. I have learned a lot about horses My client has learned alot through this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Had many interesting unknown breeds. Aug. 15 1999
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
I liked this book because it had many breeds I had never heard of. Susan McBane grouped the breeds into regions of the world so you can find where the horse come from. McBane also put the breeds of the horses which were breed together to form the breed. McBane gave great information about the breed and it's highlights. If you are looking for an interesting breed you have found your book.

This book is a favorite coffee table book. It is intelligently written and well designed from a pedagogical point of view. There is an ancestry table for each breed and great pictures. It is so inexpensive, anyone with an interest in horses should own this book. It will become a household favorite.

3.0 out of 5 stars I THOUGHT this book was great, Feb. 28 2010
By A. Fewx - Published on Amazon.com
Until I started showing horses and realized that some of the information was poor or completely incorrect. Many of those beautiful photos show horses that are poor according to their breed standard. These are mostly the photos without backgrounds. Much of the information in the front is correct, but when you start getting into some of the breeds, the research has been poorly done. Some breeds which I am familiar with now have been skipped over, while breeds I have never heard of anywhere else are addressed. Some of the horse types addressed are not breeds, the author seems to confuse color registries and competition divisions with breeds. The only thing that really concerns me is this, if some of the information is incorrect on breeds that are more familiar, what about the information on the breeds you have never heard of? I do not know if the 2002 version is any better, but I really wouldn't suggest this book to anyone. I would suggest looking through online breed encyclopedias instead.
