Horse Breeding in the Medieval World
For over thirty years Charles Gladitz has explored every lead to documentary evidence of horse breeding from as far away as China, Mongolia and Turkistan and as near as 13th-century England and Scotland. Diet, the breeding environment, equine health and branding are studied, as well as the core subject of breeding per se.
