Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Equestrians will admire Schreiber's (The Last of a Breed impressive photographs of pedigreed stock, lavish ranches and racing pageantry. The diverting, yet somewhat patronizing text by California horse breeder Pereira captures the breadth of competition with vivid accounts of the intricacies of class and judging; horse shows in Louisville and Scottsdale; varied styles of European contests; and the charged ambiance of worldwide Arabian auction. The myth of Mohammed's prodigious mares and a historical vignette of the heroic WW II rescue of two prize Polish stallions enrich an otherwise facile history of this glorious "horse of the ages." The "who's who" section of the luminaries on the international breeding scene is especially sterile.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a lovely book with stunning photos. Several of the horses included are no longer living so it becomes also a great history book on Arabian horses.

If you're not already an Arabian aficionado, the book will be the tipping point.

It's now a collector's book so if you get a chance to buy one, don't miss out.
