Over 130 horse breeds in this third title of the Big and Little series.

Horses and ponies of all sorts and types are brought together in this one beautiful book for young children. Big Horses, Little Horses features over 130 horse and pony breeds from around the world, each illustrated with a color drawing specially commissioned by leading comic artist and illustrator, Jim Medway.

Divided into sections on North American, British, European, Asian and World horses, every known breed is included: from the elegant Arabian English to the enormous Drum Horse, the Thoroughbred racehorse and the favorite of children, the tiny Shetland Pony. Horses for trotting, horses for climbing mountains, horses for cattle work, horses for jumping, horses for pulling carriages -- they are all here.

Delightful features at the back of the book are a Foal identifier, and a Horse Index that includes interesting facts about each breed.

This is a must-have book for all young children and their parents who love horses!
