It is difficult to review this book. It would be easier if it were a rant or a rave. Instead it’s just ‘meh.’ The author looks at six uses of the horse from the dancing horses of the haute ecole to the draft horses that are making a comeback in agriculture. There is no unifying thesis to bind these disparete articles into a whole. Instead they read like magazine articles published at various times.
If you know a young person who is horse mad and not very critical, this book might make a nice gift.
