    Jennifer Davies(Author)
A fascinating look back to the days when the horse played a vital role in the economy of the country, and was not simply used for the purposes of pleasure and competition. It contains tales from a wonderful selection of people who have worked with horses in a variety of ways including cavalrymen, the circus artiste, gypsy horse dealers and the man who ran one of the last commercial horse-drawn narrowboats on the canals. They recall with great affection how important horses have been to them, not only because of their practical role, but also for the loyalty and companionship so typical of the species, and which is recognised by the thousands of people devoted to horses today. It contains over 100 beautiful watercolour illustrations and archive photographs, as well as fascinating extracts from old journals, magazines and newspapers.

Jennifer Davies' father was a farmer who used horses until tractors became prevalent. She has worked as a television researcher and associate producer, and wrote the bestsellers, The Victorian Kitchen Garden, The Victorian Flower Garden and The Wartime Kitchen and Garden. She lives near Ledbury.
