Now, under the auspices of the Aga Khan and the Foundation for the Safeguarding and Development of the Domain of Chantilly, the Museum of the Horse has undergone extensive renovation. In addition to detailing the contents of the Museum's galleries, this beautifully illustrated volume explores the important role that Chantilly has played in horse racing and hunting.
