Scotland's only native heavy horse, the Clydesdale has been exported all over the world. He is recognised as having influenced heavy horse use across the globe. For Love of the Clydesdale Horse is a photographic celebration of all that makes this breed unique.
This gentle ambassador with his huge feet, kind nature and willingness to work with and for the human race, turns heads wherever he goes. He is loved by those who see him and his good looks, kind eye and ease around people make even the smallest child want to hug him, despite his great size.
For Love of the Clydesdale Horse includes 125 full colour photographs showing the Clydesdale at work, rest, ridden and in the public eye. This book will be of interest to the dedicated Clydesdale follower, breeder and enthusiast as well as to equestrian and general readers.
