A Standard Guide to Horse & Pony Breeds
The first comprehensive reference book to provide standard descriptions of them all. This includes specially researched up-to-date information on the forty-six breeds of the Soviet Union, several of them described here in English for the first time. In addition, there are descriptions of nearly thirty once significant breeds, in various contries, that are now very rare or extinct. Extensive articles on the Arab, the Barb and the Thoroughbred trace their history and describe the great influence these three universal breeds have had on the development of all the world's horses.
