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 Color of Horses: The Scientific and Authoritative Identification
Green, Ben K.

Green, Ben K. The Color of Horses: The Scientific and Authoritative Identification of the Color of the Horse. Missoula, MT: Mountain Press 2001 (1st pub. 1974). vii, 127p, many color paintings by Darol Dickinson. New preface by D. Phillip Sponenberg. Very good paperbound (light shelfwear). ** Green began his research on equine coat colors in west Texas in the 1940s, where "horses were cheap and there was an array of colors that was unmatched anywhere else in North America." His science has been criticized, but the book has long been a favorite for its wonderful color paintings. Now out of print. (Item ID: 11374)
