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.

Beautiful Jim Key: The Lost History of a Horse and a Man
Rivas, Mim Eichler

Rivas, Mim Eichler. Beautiful Jim Key: The Lost History of a Horse and a Man Who Changed the World. NY: Morrow 2005. xvi, 334p + many old photos and other ills. Very good hardcover in good d.j (a little faded, stained). ** Fascinating social history of this famous educated horse from Tennessee, his African-American trainer William Key (an ex-slave), and their huge impact on the early 20th-century animal humane movement. Jim Key was by a sire of Hambletonian blood out of an Arabian mare. (Item ID: 12801)
