Although this handsome book is intended for children ages eight and up, it can be savored by anyone who appreciates knowing how people everywhere have made horses and ponies a part of their lives. Here are some of the venues we can travel to via A World of Horses: the Pacific Northwest and rural England to see magnificent Shires put to work logging and plowing; the Kentucky Derby to watch Thoroughbreds vying for the first jewel in racing's Triple Crown; Seville, Spain, to take in the feria with its lavishly costumed riders and Andalusians; the Spanish Riding School of Vienna to thrill to the performance of Lippizaners. In all, this is a book that informs and delights us on every page.
