Abstract:

Horses have always held a mystical sway over the human imagination. Think of the Black StalLion prancing on a moonlit beach, or the exotic illustrations in The Arabian Nights. No other creature has inspired the same reverence, the same cross-cultural attraction. The Mythology of Horses offers a comprehensive look at horse breeds around the world, exploring their heritage, physical attributes, and position in human society, as well as the folklore, popular mythology, and true stories surrounding each breed.

In this evocative, one-of-a-kind reference, award-winning folklorists Gerald and Loretta Hausman incorporate interviews with breeders, Olympic equestrians, Native American and American cowboys, performers, veterinarians, gypsies, polo players, and famous horse owners from Buffalo Bill to Roy Rogers, General George Patton to Napoleon. Vividly capturing the aura that has surrounded horses throughout time, this collection will fascinate horse Lovers of all kinds.
