About this book

Originally published in 1905, The Origin and Influence of the Thoroughbred Horse presents a history of horses and equidae, especially with regard to their relationship with humans. Ridgeway includes photographs of modern-day horses, which he describes as 'the most important … of all the animals domesticated by man', as well as photographs and drawings of ancient artefacts featuring images of horses or relating to them. The Origin and Influence of the Thoroughbred Horse will be of value to anyone with an interest in horses and the history of the immensely profitable human-horse relationship.
