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. Watch this space for a forthcoming selection of books related to this theme.

Hoofs in the Distance [signed]
Bloodgood, Lida Fleitmann

Bloodgood, Lida Fleitmann. Hoofs in the Distance. NY: Van Nostrand 1953. Fwd. by A. Henry Higginson. x, 131p, line ills. by Lida Lacey Bloodgood + 15 pls. from other sources. Good hardcover (would be very good except for faded spine) in fair slipcase (faded, stained, but very sturdy). No. 876 of 985 numbered and signed copies. ** Wonderfully evocative and spirited memoirs of this noted sidesaddle horsewoman: quadrilles in the Gentleman's Riding Club of New York, showing at old Madison Square Garden, hunting in Ireland between the wars--a "rich harvest of memories" indeed. (Wells 883; her 884 is a mistaken "ghost" entry). (Item ID: 13242)
