"A Community of the Horse: Stakes and Stakeholders picks up where Bruce's first book: A Community of the Horse: Partnerships left off. It continues the exploration of the Virginia horse community, starting with breeding and flat racing, and using these to transition from the horse in sport to his important role in Virginia's agricultural economy. The story is told in the words of representative "players:' those who have dedicated their careers to caring for horses and horsemen - the veterinarians, farriers, hunt servants, trainers, teachers, stable hands, stable managers and exercise riders, and those who supply feed, bedding, apparel and tack, and services such as construction, event management and consulting. Without them the horse sports described in 'Partnerships" would be difficult, perhaps impossible. All of us who own horses are in their debt.
