An important book for horse lovers of all ages — one which proposes to give some of the basic accepted principles of judging horses — real information, presented in lively interesting text and many beautiful drawings.

"An eye for a horse" is not a gift but something acquired by many years of intelligent observation and experience. Mr. Anderson tells of the origin of thoroughbreds, and discusses such important subjects as conformation, heredity, intelligence, speed and pace. The lively informative text and beautiful drawings vividly define a "thoroughbred." There are stories of individual horses and their traits, chapters on racing, steeplechasing and hunting, as well as one on jockeys.

Mr. Anderson is a well-known portrait artist of horses. His lithographs are highly prized by collectors and his love for horses and his thorough understanding of them have made his many books exceptionally popular.
