Each book in the 6.5in x 8in Amazing Facts and Trivia series is beautifully illustrated and contains hundreds of colorful pieces of artwork, photographs, and diagrams. These quirky books are designed to be opened to any page so that readers can discover intriguing stories, facts, tips, and trivia.

From wild horses to domesticated, from thoroughbreds to ponies, this book covers the differences and similarities between members of the equine family. Colors and markings, including dopples, stripes, and Palominos, are identified with colorful photographs and illustrations. The legs, feet, eyes, teeth, and hair of horses are discussed at length with tips on how to care for each part of a horse’s body. Tips for riders and owners on the care and feeding of their horses provides a useful reference, as well as discussion on the tack and attire necessary for riders to be comfortable and safe atop a steed.

Amazing Horse Facts and Trivia should serve as a valuable resource for those who are new to the world of horses, as well as professional horsemen who want an educational tool for their clients and perhaps themselves. Besides a plethora of amazing horse facts, feats, and trivia, you will get an overview of the horse industry, including information about equine terms, breeds, history, competitions, safety, buying, riding, health care, and management.
