Notă biografică

Tamsin Pickeral is a horse expert and art historian who grew up in the English countryside surrounded by horses. There she developed a passion for these magnificent animals, their history and their relationship with human beings. She has worked with horses in Europe and North America, tending to their care, health and management. A widely published author, she has written several books on animal themes. Astrid Harrisson began photographing horses while working on a ranch in Argentina. She has since travelled widely in Europe, the Americas, India, Africa, China and Australia, capturing award-winning photographs of equine subjects.


"Both writer Pickeral and photographer Harrisson have a background in art and a love of horses. This lovely illustrated volume is more than a coffee-table book. Pickeral and Harrisson traveled across the world to research and photograph more than 80 breeds of horses--some common, some rare. The book shares little-known facts that explain the survival of horses in difficult environments; e.g., the purpose of the thick hairs that grow along the upper lips of Kazakh horses is to sift sand from the grass before they eat it, and the double coats of Exmoor ponies help them survive harsh winters. This volume is highly recommended for horse lovers, animal lovers, and art lovers."--Patsy E. Gray, "Library Journal", January 01, 2012
