By Edward Hart
Written by highly regarded countryman and heavy horse enthusiast Edward Hart, this book represents the first in-depth comprehensive work on horse drawn implements, which captures the true spirit of the heavy horse age in agriculture.
Ploughing, cultivating, seeding, harvesting and haymaking implements are all covered, and there are also sections on harnesses and brasses.
The extensive illustrations include some splendid archive material, manufacturer's catalogue illustrations and contemporary photographs, and drawings, representing a century and a half of heavy horses working the land in Britain and North America. Readers will be able to relate to most of the implements shown, as they were still used in living memory, and some may be seen at working demonstrations, country fairs and horse ploughing competitions.
This volume contains a wealth of information on a subject rarely covered in print.
Foreword by Clarissa Dixon Wright.
