The Hunter in Pictures takes the horse lover into the world of horns and hounds for a nostalgic look at the kingly sport and a practical appraisal of its opportunities and limitations today.
Ms. Self, author of nearly two score books on horses and horsemanship, provides a reliable companion for amateurs, professionals and dreamers who want to know about the ways of people who hunt and the superb animals they breed and train. She provides a cross section of the types of hunter to be found both in field and show ring, explains how the kind of terrain to be traveled determines one's choice of horses, and includes a discussion of the huntsman's beloved companion the hounds, dating back to their origin on a British country estate in Northampton.
Evenness of stride, manner and stamina are what count in a hunting horse. The Hunter in Pictures is a photographic array of beauties described by one of the world's most experienced and enthusiastic experts in the field.
