Susanna Forrest’s ‘equine journey’ comprises several different itineraries, guiding the reader through the various ways in which humankind has used the horse. In each chapter she sets out from a site visited quite recently – among them a Mongolian steppe, a manège in Versailles, an American sale barn, a polo field outside Beijing and a Portuguese bullring – to explore how the horse has been ridden, harnessed, eaten, kept as a pet, raced for sport or sent to war.
