Reviews - What do customers think about Horses (Cube Books)?

Fun book from a variety of photographers  Jul 24, 2008
Cube books; small books compiled of lots of wonderful images by a variety of well known photographers. With 725 pages in "Horses" the fun never ends. Examples of the chapter layout includes Horses in the Wild, Life on the Ranch, Children and Horses, Equestrian Sports, etc. See a vast array of perspectives as you take a ride into the horse world.
 
Simply Beautiful  Jun 5, 2008
Gorgeous photography of stunning horses in all aspects of their lives. I LOVE this book and have looked at it over and over again. I'm going to buy this for my horse loving friend as a gift, I know she'll love it as much as I do!
 
Good photographs, but inaccurate text...  Feb 15, 2006
There is some outstanding equine photography by some of the world's most renowed equine photographers in this book, but do not rely on the text and commentary as a source of fact. Many inaccuracies (perhaps something was lost in the translation from Italian to English), that the editors should have caught: pinto horses mistakenly referred to as Arabians, a photo of an (obvious) adult horse described as a "foal", Paint stock-type horses annoyingly referred to as "pintos", an obvious leopard-spot appaloosa whose pattern is described as "marble."

Nice book to look at and browse through, though. Would make a nice gift for the young horselover who enjoys looking at horses.
