Item description for Horses by Gabrielle Boiselle...
Few creatures inspire our admiration and awe as do horses. Whether galloping full-speed through a grassy field, tenderly nuzzling a foal, or gazing calmly into our own eyes, these creatures embody a rare range of emotions and spirituality. This collection of the finest photographs taken by equine expert Gabrielle Boiselle showcases the world's most noble horses in some of the most spectacular natural settings on earth. Culled from her unmatched personal archive of equine photographs, these images are the fruit of several decades of intensive research and personal experience with horses. Breathtaking in their composition, the photographs in this volume serve to present a comprehensive portrait of a complex, multifaceted animal. A photograph of a massive wavy-maned Friesan galloping along a beach in the Netherlands expresses the sheer joy of unfettered movement, while a series of images of a white Lipizzan stallion performing aerial maneuvers reveals the remarkable discipline these creatures are capable of. Accompanying the glorious photographs is an insightful text that offers unique insight into horse behavior and emotion, based on the author's extensive research and real-life experience of the subject. A handsome tribute to the beauty—both physical and spiritual—of these magnificent creatures, this volume is a comprehensive work to be treasured by horse and animal lovers of all ages. Gabrielle Boiselle has combined her two great passions—horses and photography—to become today's foremost equine photojournalist. Over the years she has traveled from Australia to North America, Argentina to Iceland, and South Africa to Sweden, all the while broadening her knowledge of equine behavior and enhancing her already impressive photographic skills. Today her archive of equine photography is unsurpassed.

Nothing else compairs to Boiselle's photography Jul 24, 2008
As a collector of equine photography books, I was very pleased after reading through Gabrielle Boiselle's "Horses" because the book became my favorite of all. It is exactly what I have been striving to find in equine photography. Boiselle easily accomplishes the challenging attempt to capture the poetry and beauty that horses radiate, as well as the deep emotions they convey. She does not digitally "enhance" her work. What you see is excellence at its best. Her pictures are never trite, but capture the very soul of these extraordinarily sensitive creatures that exude a powerful & untamed energy and unrivaled grace & nobility. The book is wonderfully laid out, with chapters such as Grace & Beauty, Power & Energy, Curiosity & Fun, Violence & Fear, etc. In my opinion, this type of layout is the best when it comes to catagorizing the equine world. Things to look forward to in this book: Unforgetable images that will powerfully arouse your own sentiments. Question to ask yourself before purchasing: How many photographers have you come by that have been able to capture two mighty Friesian stallions fighting . . . in the snow? Yeah, that's what I thought . . . ;)
