his is a splendid book that features horses down through history and how they were decorated or spruced up by their owners. For example, you'll begin by reading about horses used for warfare and hunting. In this section there are chariot horses, horses ridden by medieval knights, Japanese samurai horses and ponies painted with various symbols by American Indians.
ther sections include horses involved in competition and sports, and horses that get all dressed up for special ceremonies and celebrations. Any child (or adult for that matter) who loves horses will find this a fascinating read and the illustrations are exceptionally good, which means
will be a volume that will be read over and over again.
