Tracing the history of the Arabian (or Arab) horse from before the time of King Solomon to the present day, the text by Peter Upton - author, artist and internationally recognized expert on the subject - explains the true origins of the breed and its role in Arab history.

Wild Horses of Cumberland Island
A longtime favourite getaway for America's most influential families, Cumberland Island, off the Atlantic coast of Georgia, offers breathtaking white sand beaches, rolling dunes, old-growth oak forests, and salt marsh tidal estuaries. At the centre of it all is a population of horses that has thrived, untouched for generations, within this serene sanctuary. In Wild Horses of Cumberland Island, photographer Anouk Masson Krantz has captured the dramatic scenery and majestic horses as they have never been seen before. Her images, taken over the course of a decade, show the remarkable animals in their naturally diverse ecosystems. A lone horse on a distant beach, four creatures peacefully grazing, a shy animal peering over its shoulder from a brushy thicket...Krantz's long-term documentary study is an intimate reflection not only of Cumberland Island's exceptional beauty and the spirited horses who have made it their home, but of the history and the safekeeping practices that have allowed both to flourish. AUTHOR: Born and raised in France, Anouk Masson Krantz moved to the United States in the late 1990s. She studied photography at the International Center of Photography and has developed several notable bodies of work, including a study on the wild horses of Cumberland Island. Krantz's work has appeared in prominent galleries, and earned accolades from the International Photography Awards and International Monochrome Awards. SELLING POINTS: * Exceptional photographs, ten years in the making, of the landscape and wild horses of Cumberland Island by a celebrated and award-winning photographer * An insider's exploration of a remote getaway off the coast of Georgia (site of the wedding of John F. Kennedy Jr. and Carolyn Bessette) once owned by the Carnegies and now owned and operated by the National Park Service 150 b/w images

The Age of the Horse: An Equine Journey through Human History
Man has always been fascinated by Equus caballus, recasting horse power into many forms: a hunk of meat, an industrial and agricultural machine, a luxury good, a cherished dancer, a comrade in arms and a symbol of a mythical past. From the wild tarpans sought by the Nazis to jade-laden treasure steeds in Ancient China, broken-down nags recycled into sausages and furniture stuffing, stallions that face fighting bulls and brewery horses that charmed the founder of the Sikh Empire, The Age of the Horse knits the history of the horse into that of humans, through revolution, war, social change and uneasy peace. It also uncovers new roles for the horse in the twenty-first century as a tool in the fight against climate change and as a therapist for soldiers damaged in unwinnable conflicts. In this captivating book, Susanna Forrest takes a journey through time and around the world, from the Mongolian steppes to a mirrored manege at Versailles, an elegant polo club in Beijing and a farm, a fort and an auction house in America, exploring the horse's crucial role and revealing how our culture and economy were generated, nourished and shaped by horse power and its gifts and limits.

From a little girl's first pony to a gnarled cowboy's last quarter horse, they can offer us some of our deepest friendships and inspire us to be the best version of ourselves. Spirit: A book of happiness for horse lovers is a compendium of enduring quotes that capture the essence of our affection for these magnificent animals. Some are by famous people (Winston Churchill, Nathaniel Hawthorne, William Faulkner, Dale Carnegie, William Shakespeare, Ralph Waldo Emerson), others not; some are philosophical, others light-hearted - all are memorable. Accompanied by beautiful photography, and presented in a high-quality gift format, this is a collection of quotes to treasure.

The Our Horses, Ourselves: Discovering the Common Body: Meditations and Strategies for Deeper Understanding and Enhanced Communication
Between 60 and 80 percent of human communication is nonverbal, spoken in the physical languages of movement and touch. But while we are talking all the time, we lack a clear vocabulary and syntax of the body. In this fascinating book, dancer, choreographer, and visual artist Paula Josa-Jones combines her two greatest passions--movement and horses--in order to help us develop somatic awareness: Consciousness of breath, integrated and coherent motion, and development of movements and touch into sensitive channels of communication. Through stories and exercises, Josa-Jones demonstrates how connecting with the horse can develop this awareness. The body and mind of the horse and the human, she writes, are connected at the deepest levels--anatomically, energetically, psychically, spiritually, and emotionally. And because horses are authentic beings--their inside feelings and intentions match the outside expression and behavior--our interactions with them can help us become more aware of our inner emotional landscape and its relationship to what we are expressing outwardly. Horses offer us the opportunity to become more trustworthy and more comfortable in our own skin.By listening inwardly, feeling the connections between our mind states and our expression, we become more attuned to the currents passing among us, more able to blend, empathize, and act with balance, sensitivity, and kindness.

Horses That Save Lives: True Stories of Physical, Emotional, and Spiritual Rescue
Touching, true stories of lives restored with the help of horses. There is no denying that the emotional bond between horses and the humans who love them can reach mystical proportions, and nowhere is that relationship more evident than in these twenty-five true-life accounts of horses rescuing people. Many of the stories recount incidents where death or physical injury was imminent, and only because a horse intervened are the narrators alive to tell the tale. Other chapters describe that other plane of salvation where contact with a horse through ownership, employment, or a variety of therapeutic programs has restored mental health, peace of mind, and self-esteem. Narrators include a seventeen-year-old Apache youth whom a horse-rescue project retrieved from drug abuse; a mother whose young son was about to be dragged to his death before the horse recognized the child's plight; a Vietnam veteran with post-traumatic stress disorder whose work with horses keeps him on an even keel; and the owner of a miniature horse that serves as a seeing eye guide animal. As varied as these testimonials are, all share the same conclusion: My horse saved my life.

When Elvis Presley decided he wanted to buy a horse in 1966, he didn't want just any horse. He wanted a Golden Palomino, Priscilla Presley remembers. He would get up at 3:00 in the morning, go to certain farms and ranches and say, 'Do you have a Golden Palomino for sale?' People would say, 'That was Elvis Presley! Elvis's legendary love of horses drove him to find the Golden Palomino who would become his beloved companion Rising Sun, and to fill Graceland's stables and Circle G Ranch with horses for family and friends to ride. In the first-ever book dedicated to Elvis's equestrian side, horse lovers Kimberly Gatto and Victoria Racimo share rare stories, interviews, and photographs that shed light on the beautiful, quiet life the King lived when he was with his horses.

The lives of humans and horses have been intricately linked for thousands of years, with equines depicted in cave paintings dating back to 5000BC.

Horses covers the world's most charismatic and iconic breeds, from the noble Arab and Akhal-Teke, through working breeds such as the mighty Percheron and diminutive Fell pony, to 'primitive' equines such as Przewalski's Horse and the Polish Konik. Each breed entry showcases a unique and beautiful equine breed, showing it in magnificent full-colour photographs; these are accompanied by a historical account of the breed's origins and history. More than 70 amazingly diverse breeds are featured.

Where Have All the Horses Gone?: How Advancing Technology Swept American Horses from the Road, the Farm, the Range and the Battlefield
A century ago, horses were ubiquitous in America. They plowed the fields, transported people and goods within and between cities and herded livestock. About a million of them were shipped overseas to serve in World War I. Equine and related industries employed vast numbers of stable workers, farriers, wainwrights, harness makers and teamsters. Cities were ringed with fodder-producing farmland, and five-story stables occupied prime real estate in Manhattan. Then, in just a few decades, the horses vanished in a wave of emerging technologies. At the same time, those technologies fostered unprecedented economic growth, and with it a culture of recreation and leisure that opened a new place for the horse as an athletic teammate and social companion.

The Essential Hoof Book: The Complete Modern Guide to Horse Feet - Anatomy, Care and Health, Disease Diagnosis and Treatment
The equine hoof is a complex marvel of natural engineering, built to withstand tremendous forces and able to adapt to an astonishing range of environmental conditions. It also changes daily—for better or for worse—in response to external and internal factors. Few horse owners have the opportunity to acquire a deep understanding of the hoof, which limits their ability to advocate on their horses' behalf and make informed decisions about hoof care and management. This book is the first resource of its kind to combine the most current and useful information available, gleaned from the research and wisdom of top hoof experts around the world, with a unique hands-on approach. The authors provide basic terms and anatomy, clearly illustrate the differences between healthy and unhealthy feet, discuss biomechanics and management concerns, and cover the causes, treatments, and prevention of commonly encountered problems, including laminitis, white line disease, and thrush. Along the way, readers are given activities to help them better analyze and understand the most important aspects of equine hoof health, such as hoof balance, depth of sole, and point of breakover. Easy–to–follow language, over 400 full–color photographs, and do–it–yourself exercises promise to empower horse owners and caretakers of all experience levels with the tools they need to accurately assess hoof health and keep their horses as sound and happy as possible.
