A gorgeous photographic tribute to one of nature’s most noble creatures, A CELEBRATION OF THE HORSE features stunning photographs of horses by world-renowned photographer Bob Langrish. All ages and breeds are seen here running free, cantering in the snow, quenching their thirst in mountain streams, frolicking in the surf, and trotting through fields of flowers. Mares nuzzle their foals; herds fly across the plains; and stallions fight for dominance in these breathtaking images.

Accompanying these magnificent pictures are wonderful quotes and sayings about horses from men and women throughout the centuries, including William Shakespeare, Anna Sewell, Albert Einstein, Arthur Conan Doyle, and more. Also celebrating this most regal of creatures and the special bond between a horse and rider are meaningful Hindi, Arabic, Irish, and Polish proverbs.

Revel in the horse’s most intangible quality–his spirit–with these thrilling images and heartwarming sayings. Together, they honor this most majestic of animals

—Rudyard Kipling

Honour lies in the mane of a horse.
—Arabic proverb

Good horses make short miles.
—George Herbert
