The Gigantic Book of Horse Wisdom

Thomas Meagher
Skyhorse Publishing Inc., 17/11/2007 - 800 páginas
Can you recall the first time you rode a horse or galloped down an empty beach?  The first time you heard the knowing “neigh” as the saddle shifted on the proud stallion’s back? Bring back those wonderful memories with this enormous 800-page anthology. Featuring personal insights from some of the world’s foremost equestrian writers, including Anna Sewell, Nicholas Evans, Cormac McCarthy, and others, it will surely pull the heartstrings of serious jockeys and casual riders alike. Traveling from the open plains to the cattle ranches of the beauteous Midwest, from the quiet seclusion of small town America to the clamor of New York, this special volume reminds us of all the little bits of wisdom we can learn from our equestrian friends.

Skyhorse Publishing, as well as our Sports Publishing imprint, is proud to publish a broad range of books for readers interested in sports—books about baseball, pro football, college football, pro and college basketball, hockey, or soccer, we have a book about your sport or your team.

In addition to books on popular team sports, we also publish books for a wide variety of athletes and sports enthusiasts, including books on running, cycling, horseback riding, swimming, tennis, martial arts, golf, camping, hiking, aviation, boating, and so much more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to publishing books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked by other publishers and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.
