About the Author

"A thought provoking and challenging insight into an aspect of equine nature that we are unwilling to even acknowledge." Garry Ashton-Coulton - Art Editor, Horse magazine, London. "The renowned expert CuChullaine O'Reilly offers startling and revelatory insight about equines that appears irrefutable... the horse as herbivore is a matter of conditioning, not necessarily preference." Dr. Ruth Carter - Professor of International Studies at Georgia State University. "O'Reilly controversially suggests that many modern-day horse lovers have a sanitised view of the horse and suggests past generations may well have had a better understanding of their nature." Neil Clarkson - Publisher of Horse Talk international equestrian news service. "Deadly Equines' investigation of the historical recurrence of omnivorous horses makes for compelling reading." Dr. David R. Dorondo - Department of History, Western Carolina University and author of Riders of the Apocalypse: German Cavalry and Modern Warfare. "A wonderfully crafted, thought-provoking resource, the book begs a renewed re-examination of the nature of the horse." Diane Dowling - Director of the equestrian documentary Of Horse & Man. "What a fantastic story! There is a message here which has been suppressed over the years." Robin Hanbury-Tenison OBE - Long Rider and author of The Oxford Book of Exploration. "Deadly Equines was riveting! It contains a vast collection of evidence that proves the existence of meat-eating horses throughout history. A must-read for all horse lovers." Dr. Wendy Hofstee - Long Rider FRGS and BVSc MRCVS "Deadly Equines brings to light a rarely discussed aspect of equine behavior in a fascinating and informative way." Patrick Holscher - Society of the Military Horse. "Deadly Equines is an extraordinary study and an intriguing account." Jeremy James - Long Rider FRGS and author of The Byerley Turk. "This iconoclastic book shatters many cherished assumptions. It is an essential read for anyone with an interest in horses. I highly recommend it." Douglas Preston - Long Rider FRGS and author of Cities of Gold. "Deadly Equines depicts a fascinating and barely known aspect of polar exploration history." The Honourable Alexandra Shackleton - President of the James Caird Society "With relentless research, O'Reilly has put together a body of evidence on meat-eating horses that should have encyclopedia editors all over the world scrambling to re-edit their chapter on the horse." Geoff Young - Publisher/Editor, Horse Connection magazine. ABOUT THE AUTHOR CuChullaine O'Reilly has spent more than thirty years studying equestrian travel techniques on every continent.
