KIRKUS REVIEW

This account of how the American Saddle Horse came to be should have a place ready and waiting for it since it covers the elements that produced an established breed. From the colonial Foundation sires and the Stevenson mare and their progeny, the type (conformation, temperament, performance), and qualities (color, line, movement, intelligence, longevity, loyalty) that go into the breeding, on to horse shows and show horses and horses at work, sports and play, this is also concerned with training, clots and their handling. There is material on building (or converting for) a stable, on horses that have provided the bloodlines, Samous saddle horses of the past and today and on the progress of the saddle horse in South America, plus a section on horse show terms, an index and 32 pages of half tones. Definitely for owners, breeders and showers of this breed, and useful for reference in this field.
