I bought this book to replace one I thought I had misplaced. I've since found the original, and now use this one to take to shows for reference.
I remembered this book as a child and I gave it as a gift recently. The book is exactly what it says it is. The book isn't super high quality but there are lots of pictures and tons of information and was loved by the receiver.
My 10-y.o. daughter read the Simon & Schuster book on Cats, and wanted the same type of book for horses. She loves this book. It arrived within the expected time frame (although toward the later, outside range) in very good condition. I'm quite satisfied with the purchase.
Great reference book for breeds of horses.

This is the best book for picking the horse for you and what to look for when shopping. I'd buy it again
I am 37 years old and this is probably my favorite book. I show Breyer model horses and so I am always looking for good breed assignments outside of the Breed assigned by the Breyer company. It is colorful, full of useful facts (color , origin etc) as well as having common and extremely rare breeds as well.
All & all a wonderful book ~~ Renee
