'The New Zealand Horse, which features Waikato Stud's latest stallion recruit, Tivaci, on its jacket, bears the stamp of a labour of love by author and photographer. That is entirely appropriate for a near 400-page deep dive into the world of the horse, where so many of its participants place their passion for this unique animal ahead of any aspirations for tangible reward.' - Dennis Ryan, The Informant
