"Justin Morgan (February 28, 1747 – March 22, 1798) was a U. S. Horse breeder and composer. He was born in West Springfield, Massachusetts, and by 1788 had settled in Vermont. In addition to being a horse breeder and farmer, he was a teacher of singing; in that capacity he traveled considerably throughout the northeastern states. He died in Randolph, Vermont, where he also served as town clerk. Justin Morgan was the owner of a stallion named Figure, who became the sire of the Morgan horse breed. Morgan received Figure along with two other horses as payment of a debt. As Figure grew older, people began to recognise his skill in a variety of areas. Figure became a prolific breeding stallion; his descendants, still noted for their versatility and friendly personality, became the first American breed of horse to survive to the present. Figure's grave is marked by a stone in Tunbridge, Vermont." (from Wikipedia). Very Good+ in Very Good+ dust jacket .

"The Purebred Spanish Horse was mentioned in the writings of Homer and Xenophon. He was the war horse of the Carthaginians, Romans, Moors and Conquistadors of Mexico. This horse's bloodlines founded the American Quarter Horse, Appaloosa, Cleveland Bay, Connemara and many others. Mounted on these Spanish Andalusians, like Cid Campeador's (El Cid's) Babieca, the Christian horsemen battled against the Arabs in the Reconquest. The Conquistadors on their Spanish Horses were seen as Centaurs, so at one were they with their horses during the conquest of Mexico and Peru. In 1523 Cortes sent Cristobal Olid with … four hundred Spaniards and thirty horses, to the distant coast of Honduras…Olid emancipated himself from the authority of Cortes…. Cortes left Mexico on October 12, 1524, intending to go to Espiritu Santo, on the Cuauhtzacualco. He had two hundred and fifty Spaniards, half of whom were mounted [125 horses ridden] … He reached Tisatepetitlan…and then went on to Teoticcac-Palenque. …to Itzancanac…Cortes was ready to continue his march to Honduras. A horse, which had become useless, had to be left behind in these maize plantations on the south shore, and this trivial incident later furnished the Spanish "historians" with so much entertaining material…After surmounting great difficulties and crossing steep mountains and losing half his horses [now down to 62 or so], Cortes finally reached Nito where he fell in with Gil Gonzalo de Avila and a small Spanish detachment."

The Royal Lipizzan Stallion Show Featuring the Wonderful World of Horses **First National Tour 1970-1971)

"The Lipizzan breed dates back to the 16th century, when it was developed with the support of the Habsburg nobility. The breed takes its name from one of the earliest stud farms established, located near the Karst Plateau village of Lipica (spelled "Lipizza" in Italian) , in modern-day Slovenia. The breed has been endangered numerous times by warfare sweeping Europe, including during the War of the First Coalition, World War I, and World War II. The rescue of the Lipizzans during World War II by American troops was made famous by the Disney movie Miracle of the White Stallions. Along with the Disney movie, Lipizzans have also starred or played supporting roles in many movies, TV shows, books, and other media.". Very Good- .
