An essential book for anyone who’s ever been captivated by horses, The Age of the Horse is a breathtaking exploration of the enduring connection between humans and Equus caballus. Equestrian expert Susanna Forrest presents a unique, sweeping panorama of the animal’s prominent role in societies around the world and across time. Fifty-six million years ago, the earliest equid walked the earth—and beginning with the first-known horse-keepers of the Copper Age, the horse has played an integral part in human history. It has sustained us as a source of food, an industrial and agricultural machine, a comrade in arms, a symbol of wealth, power, and the wild. Combining fascinating anthropological detail and incisive personal anecdote, Forrest draws from an immense range of archival documents as well as literature and art to illustrate how our evolution has coincided with that of horses. In paintings and poems (such as Byron’s famous “Mazeppa”), in theater and classical music (including works by Liszt and Tchaikovsky), representations of the horse have changed over centuries, portraying the crucial impact that we’ve had on each other. Forrest deftly synthesizes this material with her own experience in the field, traveling the globe to give us a diverse, comprehensive look at the horse in our lives today: from Mongolia where she observes the endangered takhi, to a show-horse performance at the Palace of Versailles; from a polo club in Beijing to Arlington, Virginia, where veterans with PTSD are rehabilitated through interaction with horses. With passion and singular insight, Forrest investigates the complexities of human and horse coexistence, illuminating the multifaceted ways our cultures were shaped by the powerful creature.

A Statistical Study of the Age of Horses-Older Horses or Younger Horses, which fare the best. D older horses run better than younger horses or vice versa. Race analysts will often comment on the age of the horse, “probably past its best” or, “an in-experienced horse” sometimes for the younger horses. In this book I have tried to see if there is any merit in it. Over a period of time 1731 races were analyzed. Taking the three oldest and the three youngest horses in each race and the results were analyzed as well as any profit. The results are shown dividing the races into handicaps, non handicaps, jumps, flat, all weather etc and numbers of runners; 4-7 runn, 8-11 runn, 12-15 runn and 16+ runn to see if there was any particular type of race where an advantage was more evident. The book contains tables of win and place percentages for each type of race and profits gained or lost. The book does not contain a betting system or any guarantee of profits to be made; just the results.
