From wide-eyed children to professional breeders and racers, few can look at a horse and not be captivated by its beauty and strength. Riding a horse can be akin to flying, and sharing the exhilaration with our majestic companions is a special joy.
HORSES ARE SPECIAL is a More...tribute to these glorious animals.
Full-color photographs paired with quotes from everyone from William Shakespeare to John Wayne, from Elizabeth Arden to Mister Ed, celebrate the role of these loyal companions in our lives. Horses of many breeds; colts, mares, and stallions; big and small, all gallop across these pages in magnificent and endearing photographs.
"HORSES ARE SPECIAL" is a celebration of all the things we love about these regal, stunning beasts. They are strong, graceful, and swift. Some horses can be high-strung and strong-willed, others timid and skittish, but with the right kind of love and devotion, a horse and rider can become an inseparable pair.
