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. This book contains: - Chu Chu by Bret Harte. - The Doctor's Horse by Mary E. Wilkins Freeman. - The Rocking-Horse Winner by D. H. Lawrence. - Silver Blaze by Arthur Conan Doyle. - The Maltese Cat by Rudyard Kipling. - A Genuine Mexican Plug by Mark Twain. - The Brogue by Saki.
