Book Review: The Performance Horse
NW Horse Source

Photography by David R. Stoecklein with Text by Jennifer Forsberg Meyer


The horse is a creature of action: running, jumping, stopping, turning. To fully appreciate his beauty, you must see him perform working a cow, jumping a fence, hurtling around a track. In this book, David R. Stoecklein takes you inside the world of performance horses, turning his lens upon the super-athletes of equestrian sport. The photographer goes behind the scene to capture poignant moments between equine athletes and their human companions while journalist Jennifer Forsberg Meyer shares the thoughts and opinions of top riders, trainers, and breeders.

If you are a fan of one horse sport or many, or you simply love stunning portraits of magnificent horses, this book will quicken your pulse and impress you with the poetic grace and beauty of its subjects.
