Friendship between man and horse is one of the pillars of civilization. Retired from most of his functions of transport and heavy work, today the horse is an animal companion - and is even used as a therapeutic tool in health treatments - and a classic partner of sports. In this book, the critic August Nemo has selected seven short stories that talk about the intimate relationship between man and horse.
