really liked it
bookshelves: horses-nonfic, biographies-memoirs

Shoop's book on the subject is more in-depth, but this volume is bigger, flashier, and has more pictures! Really, both books are very nice for their purpose, but I generally look at this one for the pictures and use Down to the Wire when I require a reference.

Still, this is a good investment even if you don't care for the pictures. There isn't as much information as in the Shoop book, but it's a good overview. My copy came with a DVD (complete with factual inaccuracies, oh, joy), which was nice.
