Derry Moore's photographs celebrate the extraordinary beauty in the trappings and traditions of the equestrian world. Offering a privileged glimpse into the lives of jockeys and cavalrymen, Spanish riding schools, and Midwestern rodeos, these pictures take the reader to paddocks, courses, and stables the world over and reveal the customs and passions of equestrian culture. From stablehands grooming before an English country hunt to blacksmiths shoeing showhorses to pull royal carriages in Spain, and from immaculate dressage riders at Chantilly to roughshod jockeys in the dusty fields of India, Moore's photographs offer a profound and romantic insight into the connection that binds us to these animals. With contributions from legendary owners and trainers, this elegant book paints a picture of an entire equestrian world, from the racecourses of Keeneland in Kentucky to the training stables at Newmarket, and from the majestic working Suffolk Punches to Frankel, the most valuable stud in the world. Moore's work-with a unique eye for character, not just in his portraits of the horses but in the details of their surroundings-is a fitting celebration of a lifestyle that continues to inspire.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Horses (Rizzoli) appear...in Derry Moore's photographs."
-Sloane Crosley's Favorite Fall 2016 Books, Vanity Fair

"Moore's work--with a unique eye for character, not just in his portraits of the horses but in the details of their surroundings--is a beautiful tribute to horses, their riders, stables, and the equestrian lifestyle around the world."
--Art of the Times

"Rizzoli's recently released Horses: Portraits by Derry Moore is a handsome volume full of sensitive photographs of its titular subjects. The London-based Moore, who is the 12th Earl of Drogheda, had never trained his eye on horses before -- he's best known for posh interiors and portraits of the even posher humans who inhabit them -- but the topic was suggested by an editor as a natural extension of his m tier. The project took him to Louisiana, Kentucky, Spain, India and all across his native England."
