Tracing cinematic history from the silent movies to the present day, and including television programmes, Lights! Camera! Gallop! covers topics ranging from horse make-up to horses that make you laugh.
Lesley Lodge shows a broad knowledge and understanding as she charts the progress of equine film stars and their riders. Plus there’s an entertaining quiz and some amusing horsey quotes.
