Being a British publication, the horses pictured are all from that part of the world - a nice change from the usual spotted-quarter horse offerings.
The book outlines the appaloosa's rich history, and gives the breed's description, colour patterns, and other characteristics. There are short tips from the authors throughout the book.
Chapters on registration and performance are also included, as well as showing and the youth division of the UK's Appaloosa Horse Club.
Stephanie Woollon has a BSc Hons in equine science and works in PR and marketing specialising in equestrian disciplines. She has been involved in breeding and working with Appaloosas since about 2000 and competes in affiliated dressage with an Appaloosa gelding.
