The Appaloosa, with its distinctive coat patterns has, in the last 50 years, come from near obscurity to being the third highest registered breed in America and is rapidly gaining popularity in the UK.
This book traces the origins of the breed from the cave drawings of Lascaux to the present day.
Taking an international view, the author discusses the aims and requirements of the various societies and registers, the ideal characteristics of the breed and its exhibition and performance aptitudes.
The book also includes cameos of notable horses, together with an exceptional collection of historical and modern photographs.
