"...Reading this book is like an engaging conversation with a witty and friendly person, who is also a true professional in the noble art of horse breeding..." (Anton Bruy, CEO of "SPEC-ADDRESS Publishing House") SPEC-ADDRESS Publishing House and the Elite Book Department have released a unique edition - "Book about Horse". "Book about Horse" was first published in St. Petersburg in 1902 and immediately became incredibly popular among horse lovers.The book is intended for both professional breeders and enthusiasts of horses. Its author and compiler was Prince Sergei Urusov - a well-known and respected expert and connoisseur of horses. Even during the prince's lifetime, the book was reissued twice and became a recognized encyclopedia in literally all areas of horse breeding, and its full title - "Desktop book for every horse breeder, horseman, horse owner, and horse lover" - justifies itself to this day! The book contains interesting historical information and the most complete overview of materials on horse breeding: it tells about horse breeds, their structure and stature, diet and treatment; about horseback riding; about the arrangement of stables, harnesses, and equipment; about how to correctly choose, breed, and care for horses and train riders.

Here are just some of the chapter titles contained in the book: " The horse, its origin, history, and varieties", "Main information on the anatomy and physiology of the horse", "Teaching about teeth", "External examination of the horse. Teaching about conformation", "On some internal and external horse diseases", "Feeding", " Grooming and care of horses", "Teaching about shoeing", "Equestrian riding", "Caring for a prize horse".

The text is reproduced in modern Russian spelling from the 1911 edition, but the style of presentation remains the same: it is a lively and direct narrative of a person who sincerely loves horses.
