Synopsis

Horse Bits and Pieces A Sublime Equine Trivia by Sarah Widdicombe

This is a diverse and entertaining collection of turf trivia, sporting surprises, and assorted equine facts that will appeal to anyone with even a passing interest in horses. Answers to be found in this book include: what are the rules to Buzkashi? Why are horses measured in hands? Who are the greatest race winners (and losers)? Why is the world famous Spanish Riding School actually in Austria? And many more. Beautifully packaged, great price point and wide-ranging subject - this is the perfect gift for anyone who's ever wondered why the left-hand side of a horse is referred to as 'near' no matter how far away it is...

About the Author
