Product description

About the Author

"A thought provoking and challenging insight into an aspect of equine nature that we are unwilling to even acknowledge." Garry Ashton-Coulton - Art Editor, Horse magazine, London. "The renowned expert CuChullaine O'Reilly offers startling and revelatory insight about equines that appears irrefutable... the horse as herbivore is a matter of conditioning, not necessarily preference." Dr. Ruth Carter - Professor of International Studies at Georgia State University. "O'Reilly controversially suggests that many modern-day horse lovers have a sanitised view of the horse and suggests past generations may well have had a better understanding of their nature." Neil Clarkson - Publisher of Horse Talk international equestrian news service. "Deadly Equines' investigation of the historical recurrence of omnivorous horses makes for compelling reading." Dr. David R. Dorondo - Department of History, Western Carolina University and author of Riders of the Apocalypse: German Cavalry and Modern Warfare. "A wonderfully crafted, thought-provoking resource, the book begs a renewed re-examination of the nature of the horse." Diane Dowling - Director of the equestrian documentary Of Horse & Man. "What a fantastic story! There is a message here which has been suppressed over the years." Robin Hanbury-Tenison OBE - Long Rider and author of The Oxford Book of Exploration. "Deadly Equines was riveting! It contains a vast collection of evidence that proves the existence of meat-eating horses throughout history. A must-read for all horse lovers." Dr. Wendy Hofstee - Long Rider FRGS and BVSc MRCVS "Deadly Equines brings to light a rarely discussed aspect of equine behavior in a fascinating and informative way." Patrick Holscher - Society of the Military Horse. "Deadly Equines is an extraordinary study and an intriguing account." Jeremy James - Long Rider FRGS and author of The Byerley Turk. "This iconoclastic book shatters many cherished assumptions. It is an essential read for anyone with an interest in horses. I highly recommend it." Douglas Preston - Long Rider FRGS and author of Cities of Gold. "Deadly Equines depicts a fascinating and barely known aspect of polar exploration history." The Honourable Alexandra Shackleton - President of the James Caird Society "With relentless research, O'Reilly has put together a body of evidence on meat-eating horses that should have encyclopedia editors all over the world scrambling to re-edit their chapter on the horse." Geoff Young - Publisher/Editor, Horse Connection magazine. ABOUT THE AUTHOR CuChullaine O'Reilly has spent more than thirty years studying equestrian travel techniques on every continent. After having made lengthy trips by horseback across Pakistan, he was made a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and the Explorers' Club. O'Reilly is the founder of the Long Riders' Guild and the author of Khyber Knights. This equestrian travel tale has been described as a "masterpiece" and the author as "Jack London in our time." Deadly Equines is the first title in a new series of equestrian investi¬gative works undertaken by the author.
