We're delighted to announce that we'll be taking part in the Attingham Trust Study Programme, "The Horse and the Country House," in England in September. We have in stock some of the books on the program's suggested reading list. A selection of them, plus others that may be of interest, are included in "Featured Books" at the bottom of this page. Quantities are very limited. For other titles related to the program's theme, search by the keyword Attingham, or go to "Browse Horses" and then look through the topics Art, Driving (especially other World on Wheels volumes), Farming, Horses in Society & History, and Hunting. We're happy to ship postpaid to Attingham participants within the United States.

The Racing Imperative
O'Dea, Joseph

O'Dea, Joseph. The Racing Imperative. Geneseo, NY: Castlerea 1998. 160p, some ills. Very good hardcover in d.j. ** The longtime USET veterinarian argues that modern racing is no longer a test for determining quality in Thoroughbreds, due to its "fad nutrition, inept training, fewer distance races, irrational medication, and excessive racing demands," as well as governmental failures. "Although O'Dea focuses here on flat racing, his words should be a warning to the leaders of and participants in every horse sport.... Concentration on the message will yield rewards."--Chronicle of the Horse. (Item ID: 10588)
