Book Summary:

First Star to the Right and Straight on Till Morning.... At the 90-mile vet check she sat in the middle of the road crying, claiming extreme illness and trying to avoid her nightmarish fears her horse would die of founder or colic, or anything. The last ten miles of trail stretched forever in her mind, black like licorice taffy. After a large measure of TLC from her patient and understanding crew, she and the gelding were out of the check and on the trail again. The entire universe shrank to center on the pair in the moonlight. Time stopped and the world faded into nothingness. They were running in a small, ever-changing pocket of existence, the rhythm of his hooves, the heartbeat of that universe. Ribbons and trail appeared before them and lost substance as they moved past. For the rider, clinging to the saddle, there was no thought, no pain, no emotion, only the instinctive drive to chase past each ribbon as it appeared. Suddenly her horse jumped sideways, eyes and ears frozen forward. Awakened from her trance, she oriented herself on his suspected woods troll, a familiar embankment that meant they were a half-mile from home. Easing him past the scary object, she sent the gelding on, clinging to his neck. As his soft lope swept them across the finish line, she wanted to laugh out loud or cry, but was unable to summon the strength for either. A few small tears trickled down her cheek, the only sign of the enormous pride she felt inside.

Book Summary:

"For centuries, society could not have functioned without the horse; not only was it used for transportation, it was also a working animal on farms, in mines, and on the battlefield. this diversity consequently led to the development of myriads of breeds throughout the world. Climatic and geographical differences, not to mention the intervention of man, also played their part in forming the breeds. Those originating in desert areas not only had fine coats to enable them to deal with hot daytime temperatures, they were also hardy enough to withstand plummeting temperatures at night. At the other extreme, breeds living in colder lands developed heavier, thicker coats to make them impervious to wind and rain. man was not content to let evolution take its natural course, however, and decided to take a hand in the matter, interbreeding horses with different characteristics to produce and accentuate specific qualities. thus the different breeds were developed to fit their roles. Warhorses became large and stocky, able to carry medieval knights in heavy chain mail, while draft horses were bred for strength to till the land or to heave heavy carts across difficult terrain. The ultimate breeding triumph is undoubtedly the Thoroughbred, which was developed for the racecourse, and therefore pleasure. It is aristocratic and finely-tuned and its bloodlines are in many of the modern breeds we know today. It is responsible for adding quality, beauty, speed, and stamina. Not content with a comprehensive coverage of the horse breeds and types of the world, there are also sections on care to give the reader a complete and rounded insight into the pleasures, as well as problems, of looking after horses."--cover flaps
