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.

Falling for Fallacies: Misleading Commonplace Notions of Dressage [&c]
Racinet, Jean-Claude

Racinet, Jean-Claude. Falling for Fallacies: Misleading Commonplace Notions of Dressage Riding. Cadmos Books 2009. 160p, many color drawings and diagrams. New hardcover in d.j. ** Racinet challenges 20 dressage "fallacies:" that engagement of the hind legs will always lighten the front end, that lifting a horse's neck is bound to hollow his back, that the horse should be bent by the rider's inside leg, that shoulder-in should be on three tracks, that the reverse pirouette sets the horse on the shoulders, and more.
