Beautiful! Jan 18, 2008
I really enjoyed this book. The photos are breathtaking. A book for the horse lover and photographer.
Visually Arresting but a Disappointment Aug 21, 2007
While packed with lovely photographs and high quality printing, this volume is a real disappointment. It strikes me as not knowing its market--it is quite superficial and not for the serious horseperson, but by the same token doesn't seem aimed at those with a romantic affection for equestrian matters or the "lifestyle."
