Horses in Australia: An illustrated history

Nicolas Brasch

This beautifully illustrated book celebrates the horse in Australia past and present. From Cobb & Co to Black Caviar, from the Walers of World War I to The Man from Snowy River, it showcases our best historical and contemporary images.

The horse has been an integral part of Australian history since the First Fleet brought the first horse to our shores. From the resilient workhorses of colonial Australia and the determined stockhorses rounding up cattle, to the thoroughbreds that capture the country’s imagination at every Melbourne Cup, horses have contributed to many of the great human feats in our history.

Here, alongside 180 stunning images, Nicolas Brasch shows why we love horses - and how they have been captured so strikingly by our photographers and artists.
