Transcending sport and spectacle, all things equine and equestrian have captivated and charmed an elite global audience. Including horse racing, show-jumping, and polo, amongst other horse disciplines, this book encapsulates the glittering people, international events, fashion, and cultural impact—in such arenas as design and entertainment—that equine sports have had on the world at large. International sporting competitions featured are the Kentucky Derby in Louisville to Royal Ascot in England to Prix de l'Arc in Paris, to events in Buenos Aires, Melbourne, Hong Kong, and many others. As you flip through the pages, peek inside luxurious horse stables and equestrian castles, and marvel at the sheer glamour of such star athletes as Polo player Nacho Figueras and equestrienne Charlotte Casiraghi, the daughter of Princess Caroline of Monaco, resplendent in their riding attire.
Vicky Moon chronicles the horse world and its surrounding culture as a writer and photographer, having written seven books and for many magazines such as People, Town & Country, and House and Garden, on the subject.
