The New Zealand Horse (Deborah Coddington & Jane Ussher)



The New Zealand Horse

by Deborah Coddington & Jane Ussher

A magnificent tribute to the New Zealand horse, documenting its pivotal role in the development of the early colony, in farming, transport, war, sport and in our affections. Writer Deborah Coddington and photographer Jane Ussher capture the strength, beauty and mystery of the horse across New Zealand, from bareback beach riders in the far north and huntsmen in Hawkes Bay, to the Canterbury high country, the stud farms of the Waikato and the pony clubs of the Wairarapa. Warmly and expertly written, and including a range of historical images, this magnificent book is brought to startling life by the astounding photographs of Jane Ussher. 391 pages, hardback
