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.

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)
