What is it about horses? Why have we mythologised them so? Apollo and his horse-drawn chariot racing across the sky; unicorns with their supposedly magical powers; Pegasus and his mighty wings . . . From a wealth of material by writers from around the world Candida Baker has drawn together a collection of pieces in praise of the horse. Included here are old favourites such as Anna Sewell, the awesome intimacy of Monty Roberts and the haunting images of Nicholas Evans. This anthology will appeal to all riders, readers, and lovers of the horse.
