Tell Me About That Horse by Vaughn Wilson is a collector's piece!
This hard cover coffee table book is beautifully illustrated and includes fond memories of horses from trainers such as John Lyons to singers such as Charlie Daniels and Reba McEntire's father, Clark. Most are stories about horses ridden Western, such as cutters and team ropers, as well as a few trick horses.
Although the stories are interesting, it's the photographs and paintings that are astounding. Most are profiles of the person in the story; in fact, many of the stories do not include a picture of the horse! But Wilson includes details about each person and then the rider tells the story "in his own words..."
This makes a great gift for any horse lover!
