Description

Bob Langrish's World of Horses is the culminating collection of a master photographer who has traveled six continents in search of the most compelling horses in their habitats.

From the Mongolian steppe to the South African desert, barrier islands to city streets, Langrish has recorded the lives and activities of these majestic and beloved animals. His images capture the grace and soul of horses in all shapes and sizes. Brisk, lively text by Olympic gold medalist Jane Holderness-Roddam accompanies each photo, relating the story of how horse behaviors and traits vary by habitat, as well as the sometimes frightening behind-the-scene details of Langrish's adventures. Dramatic, poignant, and personal, Langrish's photos are a testament to the ancient and abiding horse-human relationship.
