Imagine Thoroughbreds thundering over your desk or graceful Arabians flying across your wall! Here are sixteen full-colour photos of horses and lots of fascinating
facts to read, too. Stats and a description of the breed accompany each poster, and additional information abounds: the oldest breed of horse alive, how to tell a pony
from a horse, horse anatomy, colour terminology, famous horse events, kinds of competitions, and more. There is even an extensive list of addresses and websites for kids who want to gallop into the world of horses. Nothing fascinates kids as much as animals, and few animals captivate the heart and imagination as much as
horses do. Crazy for Horses combines appealing photographs and informative text, making it essential for horse lovers of all ages.
