The horse is a creature of action: running, jumping, stopping, turning. To fully appreciate his beauty, you must see him perform-working a cow, jumping a fence, hurtling around a track. In this book, David R. Stoecklein takes you inside the world of performance horses, turning his lens upon the super-athletes of equestrian sport. You will see brilliant competitors from all the major disciplines: reining, cutting, barrel racing, and roping; horseracing, polo, hunter/jumper, three-day eventing, dressage, and driving. Journalist Jennifer Forsberg Meyer shares the thoughts and opinions of top riders, trainers, and breeders.
