Some of Americas greatest heroes have not gotten the recognition they deserve. These heroes have four legs, and in The Equine Legacy, you will have a front-row seat to the epic role the equine played in our countrys evolution.

From east to west, equines played significant roles in the exploration, settlement, and economic prosperity of America, while serving on the battlefield and entertaining citizens across the country. Much more than just beasts of burden, horses, mules, and donkeys were devoted partners and friends to our ancestors, who depended on them heavily, often for their very survival.

In addition to shedding light on these important contributions, The Equine Legacy also covers how an equine illness nearly brought the country to a standstill; how horses saved so many people from dreaded diseases; how equines paid the ultimate price to rebuild a major city; the men and women who devoted their lives to equine welfare; and how these special animals are still serving our country today.

Filled with first-person accounts from iconic and everyday Americans, and more than forty photographs that bring this story to life.

Whether you are a history buff, a horse lover, or a champion of the mule or donkey, The Equine Legacy will leave you with a deeper appreciation for the incredible equine role in our American journey.
