Item description for War Horse: Mounting the Cavalry with America's Finest Horses by Phil Livingston...

The story of the U.S. Army Remount Program, which acquired well-bred stallions from private owners, placing them with farmers and ranchers across the country for breeding to selected mares. These stallions of impressive bloodlines----Thoroughbreds, Arabians, Morgans, and Lippizaners were bred carefully, developing a cadre of military worthy horses for the United States and our allies around the world. This book shows how these horses positively contributed to the outcome of conflicts and wars waged the world over and how the war horses also had strong civilian demand and dramatically influenced equestrian bloodlines across our country.

Reviews - What do customers think about War Horse: Mounting the Cavalry with America's Finest Horses?

A master work sure to become a classic reference.  Mar 22, 2004
As the director of an history museum I am often asked to review books and such was the case of War Horse. I was amazed at the scholarship that went into this wonderful book. Its told as a story of the U S Army Remount service which supplied a standard mount for the Cavalry but much more it tells the story of the development of a "using" kind of horse. One of the best parts of the book are the wonderful side bar stories and photos about everyone from George Patton to Francis the talking mule! The complete data on almost every aspect of breading the war horse will make this book a valuable reference. If you like horses or if you just want to know how one of our country's first mass produced war machines was developed this needs to be in your hands. Ted Peters, Director, Heritage Farmstead Museum.
