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.

The Wisdom of Master Nuno Oliveira
De Coux, Antoine; Nuno Oliveira

De Coux, Antoine. The Wisdom of Master Nuno Oliveira. Xenophon Press 2012. 184p, a few ills. New paperbound. ** For over 20 years Antoine de Coux took part in Oliveira's annual 2-month training sessions in Belgium. He "watched every lesson and took copious notes, filling more than forty notebooks. He faithfully recorded the teachings and remarks of the Master." Here, for the first time in English, are Oliveira's words of advice on all aspects of dressage through the Spanish walk, including schooling young horses. Translated by J.P. Giacomini and edited by Suzanne Laurenty, both of them also longtime students of Oliveira. Please note: the price printed on the book is incorrect. Can be sent outside the U.S. for less than the default shipping rate. ** In 2013 we celebrate 40 years of selling good horse books! Ask about our ongoing specials all year long. **.
