From Phar Lap to Makybe Diva, Garryowen to Picasso, and Our Solo to Peppermint Grove, Australians adore their horses. Be it a pony club mount, an Australian Stock Horse descendant of the mighty Waler or a Snowy Mountains brumby, such is our love for the horse, we have virtually granted him honorary native status.
Despite urbanisation, we retain one of the world's highest rates of horse ownership. Through the stories of our most iconic horse events - such as the Melbourne Cup, the Golden Slipper, the Inter Dominion, the Garryowen Perpetual Trophy, the Warwick Gold Cup, the Tom Quilty Endurance Ride and the Pony Club movement in Australia, Fiona Carruthers captures how we have embraced the horse.
A beautiful and comprehensive book on horses. The Horse in Australia brings all aspects of a proud and vital Australian tradition under one roof. Encyclopedic in the knowledge shared, it's told at a gallop and weighted with stunning images. (publisher blurb)
