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.

In the Pink: Caroline Blackwood on Hunting
Blackwood, Caroline

Blackwood, Caroline. In the Pink: Caroline Blackwood on Hunting. London: Bloomsbury 1987. 164p, no ills. Very good hardcover in good d.j. (faded). ** "An intriguing and acerbic investigation into the current state of [foxhunting] and the passions which rage on either side of the fence." "Topics such as adultery and the hunt, the function of gawdy orange foundation make-up and the 'blooding' of children bring us into the heart of the hunting family." An interesting read, with insights into both sides of the controversy. (Item ID: 14336)
