Horses of Destiny

By: Fairfax Downey


For ages, horses have galloped beside us, not just as mounts but as legends, shaping history with their hooves. In “Horses of Destiny,” illuminated by Paul Brown’s evocative illustrations, Fairfax Downey pays tribute to the steeds that have become symbols of courage, loyalty, and power.


Product Description

Embark on a journey with Bucephalus, who charged through battlefields with Alexander the Great, or ride with the unstoppable Sharatz, the heartbeat of the Desert’s winds. Experience the legacy of Black Bess, feel the spirit of Comanche, relish the triumphs of Citation, and marvel at the lineage set by Justin Morgan’s iconic horse.

But these aren’t just tales of horses. They’re chronicles of pivotal moments, of kingdoms won and lost, of races that defied odds—all on the backs of these majestic creatures. Whether you’re a passionate equestrian, a history buff, or someone who simply appreciates tales of valor and heart, this collection will sweep you off your feet and onto the saddle of destiny.

Step into a world where history gallops and tales resonate with every hoofbeat. And remember, every horse has a story, perhaps even the one grazing in your own pasture.
