Waterstones Says

A delightful collection of horse-related verse from poets across the centuries, this handsome volume is perfect for lovers of all things equine.

Since prehistory, horses have given us assistance, close companionship and artistic inspiration. Horses offer everything from practical help to brisk exercise to the sheer exhilaration of galloping together across open country. They provide entertaining antics when we're bored and quiet understanding when we need it most.

To poets in particular, these beloved creatures are the most wonderful muses, as they neigh, whicker and nuzzle, reflecting back at us our heartfelt tenderness and high spirits. Horse Poems offers a selection of verses in praise of the horse by some of the most celebrated poets of all time. The perfect gift for literary horse fans.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Where in the world can man find nobility without pride, friendship without envy, or beauty without vanity! Here, where grace is laced with muscle, and strength by gentleness confined. He serves without servility, has fought without enmity. There is nothing so powerful, nothing less violent, nothing as quick, nothing as patient. The world's past has been borne on his back. We are his heirs; he is our inheritance.' - Ronald Duncan
