HORSES OF EUROPE FROM BEFORE TO BEYOND
ANNA B JOACHIM, author
The world has been home to horses for several million years. They have been so integral to the development of human civilizations that it would be challenging to imagine what the world would have been like without them. From as far back as the Kazarians of old who first domesticated horses and trained them for battles to our modern-day sport and pleasure riding, their presence in our lives has fostered our ability to develop a loving relationship with the natural world around us; a species existing from the dawn of time, destined to be our companions. Join me in Book 1 of this Horses of Europe Trilogy as we journey through the captivating story of the migration of horses to learn how they evolved; when they were domesticated and put under saddle; the facts about their use in historical warfare; and the roles that famous steeds had in our evolving development from the ancient world to the modern one.
