For many people speed is often the characteristic of equids that is most recognisable and compelling. Ultimate Guide: Horses explores the intricate physiology that makes that speed possible.

Learn how equid bodies conserve oxygen as they run, and how their physical structure increases the efficiency of their lungs. From gruelling endurance races to heavy farm work, from military transport to steeple chasing, we see how horses stamina, strength and agility have been essential to human life. Ultimate Guide gives the viewer a glimpse of the ancestors of modern equid species and we watch as they evolve from small, cat-sized, multi-toed mammals to the familiar single-hooved masters of power and speed that we know today.
