Horses in History

Edited by James C. Nicholson, Series Editor

For thousands of years, humans have utilized horses in transportation, recreation, war, agriculture, and sport. Arguably no animal has had a greater influence on human history. Horses in History will explore this special human-equine relationship, accommodating a broad range of topics. From ancient Chinese polo to modern Thoroughbred racing, and from biographies of influential equestrians to studies of horses in literature, television, and film, this series will profile racehorses, warhorses, sport horses, and plow horses in novel and compelling ways. Horses in History will fill a void within existing equine literature, finding a loyal audience of horse enthusiasts in the Bluegrass and beyond.
