THE BOOK OF DRAFT HORSES The Gentle Giants that Built the World DONNA CAMPBELL SMITH

Before trucks and tractors, draft horses performed the heavy work of pulling wagons, plowing fields, and hauling logs. But the internal combustion engine did not entirely replace these animals; they are still used in many parts of the country for agricultural and other jobs. The Book of Draft Horses is a cele- bration of these “gentle giants,” as well as a practical handbook on breeding, care, training, competi- tion, and working horses.

Donna Campbell Smith is a freelance writer with a degree in equine technology. She writes for USA Equestrian, The Chronicle of the Horse, and other equestrian magazines. She lives in Wake Forest, North Carolina.

  • Draft horses combine the general allure of horses with a sense of history

  • The estimated 60,000 owners of draft horses in this country indicate a viable market for this book

  • The breeding, raising, training, and use of these horses for driving and pulling/hauling are a fascinating aspect of horsemanship

  • Includes 60 b|w photographs that complement the text by showing the various breeds at work and at play
