In Praise of Famous Horses : An A-Z of the Most Celebrated in History and Culture, Myth and Sport Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

In Praise of Famous Horses is an A-Z companion to perhaps the most loved of all domesticated animals.

From D.H. Lawrence's horse Aaron, whose hide was posthumously made into a duffel-bag, to Zippy Chippy, fabled American loser, all the horses featured in this book have their very own claim to fame.

Some - among them Bucephalas, Red Rum, Champion the Wonder Horse and Rocinante - are permanent residents in the equine pantheon.

Others - such as Rossa Prince, who managed to lose a walkover - attract more qualified appreciation. Literature, history and art, battlefield, movie and television, myth, racecourse and religion are all enriched by these magnificent creatures.

From A to Z, here is the wonderful world of famous horses.
