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.

Manual d'equitation [Sarasin copy]
Gerhardt, A.

Gerhardt, A. Manuel d'equitation [etc.]. Paris: J. Dumaine 1859. 215p + many lithographed ills. after V. Adam on 12 pls. Quarter leather (rubbed). Foxed throughout. Ink names; from the renowned equestrian collection of Henry Sarasin, with his bookplate. In French. ** The title page continues: "Ou Essai d'une progression pour servir au dressage prompt et complet des chevaux de selle, et particulierement des chevaux d'armes, precede d'une analyse raisonnee du Baucherisme." On the systematic training of saddle and cavalry horses. Gerhardt's first book, based on Baucher and dedicated to him. (The spine label mistakenly reads: Baucher.) Baucher's short text of thanks commends Gerhardt's analysis of his method. Gerhardt, then an instructor in the Imperial Guard and later at Saumur, was known for his work with difficult horses. He later disagreed with Baucher. (Mennessier de la Lance 1:543, Wells 2818). (Item ID: 12885)
