Covers many topics involving horses I am a wrap around therapist for an autistic 13 year old boy who cannot speak. He loves horses. We use this book everyday for our drills. This book has so many facts that are uncomplicated, but informative. It has beautiful pictures in it. Sometimes we just look at the pictures of horses because they are so beautiful. It covers almost every topic about horses. I have learned a lot about horses. My client has learned a lot through this book.
An Instant Guide to Horses: More Than 100 of the World’s Breeds Described and Illustrated in Full Color (Instant Guide.) David Burn, Cecilia Fitzsimons (Illustrator) — Hardcover, 128 pages, Publisher: Gramercy (March 2000)

Good value Each breed has a color illustration (not picture), size, and four 3 sentence descriptions on characteristics, history, uses, and similar breeds. I gave it 4 stars because it doesn’t have the Foxtrotter, which I was interested in. This seems to be a good quick reference guide, not much depth.
International Encyclopedia of Horse Breedsby Bonnie L. Hendricks / Univ of Oklahoma Press, Hardcover, 486 pages (January 1996)

The best, most complete horse breeds book I have ever seen! Bonnie Hendricks has gone far beyond what any other horse breed researcher has done…she has contacted every breed association she possibly could. She has written with far more detail, greater accuracy, and on many more breeds than any other horse book I have seen. Her intelligent ideas inserted into some breed descriptions are well worth noting. This is a MUST-HAVE for the serious equine enthusiast! It has definitely spoiled my appetite for any other horse book that attempts to describe the breeds. Thanks Bonnie, we needed this book!
