Review Text

A handsome horse parade and a sure seller is this collection of fact and fancy about some of the most familiar breeds of horses - and of course the spellbinding illustrations in color by Wealey Dennis. In an affectionate, but never sentimental, style the author tails the histories and ?? about such breeds as the Arab, the Thoroughbred, the Hunter, etc, and also tells a few charming stories about men and horses. Wesley Dennis' illustrations in full color and appealing sketches in black and white will delight horse lovers. All in all this is a sure fire Christmas gift item and for all the riding year.
