Since then, the state's special relationship with the horse has never waned. Virginia has been home to some of the most notable breeds in the world--nurturing the Thoroughbred and actually birthing the Quarter Horse--as well as to some of the most famous individual horses, including the great Triple Crown champion Secretariat and Misty of Chincoteague, one of the most beloved horses to grace children's literature. This is the first book to cover the complete history of the horse in the Old Dominion. The book is beautifully illustrated throughout, including numerous historical depictions of the horse by painters, photographers, and even commercial artists. The equine tradition in Virginia is unique and enduring; this book is the celebration it deserves."@en ;
