Description of this Book

A magnificent tribute to the New Zealand horse, documenting its pivotal role in the development of the early colony, in farming, transport, war, sport and in our affections. Writer Deborah Coddington and photographer Jane Ussher capture the strength, beauty and mystery of the horse across New Zealand, from bareback beach riders in the far north to huntsmen in Hawke's Bay, and from the Otago high country and the stud farms of the Waikato to the wild horses of the Kaimanawas, film horses, dressage horses and many, many more. Warmly and expertly written, and including a range of historical images, this magnificent book is brought to startling life by the astounding photographs of Jane Ussher.
