This study of the horse looks in detail at its role and representation within history. The relationship between man and horse is examined with reminders of how man has depended on the horse in the past. The text looks at how the horse originated and developed with reference to many different breeds. The ways in which the horse has served man in war, industry, entertainment and art are discussed with emphasis on how attitudes towards this animal have changed over time. The book is richly illustrated throughout with depictions of the horse in art including paintings by Stubbs, Munnings and medieval illuminations and coincides with a major exhibition at the National Horseracing Museum, Newmarket in April 2000. Contributing authors to the book include The Duke of Wellington, Hilary Bracegirdle, Jonathan Brown, Robert Fountain, Anne Hyland, Lionel Lambourne and Christopher Nicholson.
