Black Beauty is one of the most beloved classics in the world of literature, written by Anna Sewell in 1877. With more than 50 million copies sold, Black Beauty is undoubtedly one of the best-selling books of all time, telling the lesson of animal welfare and treating people kindly, with respect and sympathy. The story is narrated through a first person point of view, from the perspective of the horse Black Beauty. In the book, Black Beauty narrates his experiences, from his young carefree days as a colt, to his hard days spent as a cab horse, to his eventual retirement in the country.

The book perhaps captures the fascinating relationship between man and horse, which goes back for several millennia. The earliest records of man’s domestication of horses can be traced back to some 4000 years ago, in Central Asia. From then on, horses have become an essential part of human society, playing crucial roles in farming and transportation right until the engine first became available to the public. To this day, horses are still held by many cultures in high regard, often seen as a symbol of bravery.

While man has domesticated most horses, many still roam wild and free today. These horses are known as feral horses and are the descendants of horses once tamed but have run free, continuing to do so for many generations. An example of feral horses would be the Mustangs of North America, which are descended from the horses brought to North America some 400 years ago.

The Przewalski's horse is the only ‘pure’ wild horse. It’s a horse whose ancestors were never domesticated. Ironically, the Przewalski's horse is officially extinct in the wild, with the remaining population kept in captivity.
