Legends and Myths

The Man Eater of Lucknow – It’s one of the modern horse world’s most enduring myths, that the horse is a placid, grass eating, peaceful animal who is frightened of that predator known as man. In a preamble to a forthcoming study into meat-eating horses, the LRG-AF is publishing the story of the infamous equine that terrorized India.


The idea of talking horses is one which has intrigued people for centuries.  One of the books in C. S. Lewis's Narnia series, The Horse and his Boy, is based on this theme.

Though the diminutive Corsican had conquered all of Europe, one bold German cavalry officer not only stole Napoleon's Arabs, but dared the French Emperor to try and take them back!
