For centuries the horse was vital; it was not only for transportation, but also a working animal on farms, in mines, and on the battlefield. This diversification of use led to the development of a myriad of breeds throughout the world. Climate and geographical boundaries combined with man s influence also played an important part. Depending upon their use the different breeds were purposely developed to fulfill certain roles. Breeds originating from desert areas were fine coated enough to deal with the hot daytime temperatures, but were also hardy enough to deal with the plummeting temperatures at night. At the other extreme, breeds originating from the colder lands developed heavy coats and a resilience to cold and rain. War horses were bred to be large and stocky, making them able to carry a knight in full amount. Similarly, draught horses were bred for strength to pull a plough or heavy cart across countryside. The ultimate breeding triumph is undoubtedly the Thoroughbred which was developed for the racecourse. This finely tuned breed has in turn, influenced many of the modern breeds we know of today; adding quality, speed, and stamina to domesticated horse breeds. As well as a comprehensive coverage of all the breeds, a section on care has also been included, which provides the reader with an introduction into looking after and owning a horse. The Ultimate Guide to Horse Breeds covers the evolution of the horse and all the necessary tools for horse care to horse owners and aficionados. Stable management, horse grooming, breed information, correct feeding, riding, and training techniques are stunningly illustrated with over 600 color photographs of horse breeds across the world.
