These books are non-fiction works designed as references for the Olympic style sport horse breeder, but are relevant also for the racehorse, western or pleasure horse breeder--the breeding principles for successful breeding are the same, no matter the breed of horse or the discipline. North American Sport Horse Breeder provides step by step instructions in applying Tesio  Methods in our breeding designs with 35 in depth analysis of individual horses. The American Thoroughbred (Legacy of Lexington) and Standardbred (Standardbred Sport Horses) bloodlines for our breeding goals (which are an exceptional resource for the breeder once we understand their strengths and talents) each have their own book.
