I'm currently reading "Warhorse", a fabulous book on the horse as a weapon throughout history. I highly recommend it if you are at all interested in the history of the horse. Like it or not, the horse was used as a war time instrument AND much of our current riding equipment and "traditions" have come from the horses use on battlefields. I am currently reading about the Steppe tribes (Attila the Hun and then later Ghangas Khan). Absolutely fascinating.

On a different note, here is the modern day "Warhorse" for CHAS members.


  1. This is probably NOT the book _War Horse_ by Michael Morpurgo...but if it is, (and even if it isn't) you might be interested in the play based on the Morpurgo book.

    Details here:

    and *absolutely* watch the video of the "puppet" horses. It's amazing...I only wish I could get to London to see it!

  2. Nope, this Warhorse is by DiMarco. :)

    I am going to check out the links and the play though. Sounds interesting.
