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.

Francois Baucher: The Man and His Method [paperbound]
Nelson, Hilda

Nelson, Hilda. Francois Baucher: The Man and His Method. Xenophon Press 2013 (1st pub. 1992). 209p, several ills. Fwds. by Charles Harris and Paul Belasik, and a new postscript by Nelson. New paperbound. ** Key study of Baucher, now available in a low-cost revised edition. Part 1 treats Baucher and the "controversy in 19th-century French equitation." Part 2 reprints the American 19th-century translation of New Method of Horsemanship, which Nelson considers the best version. Part 3 publishes Baucher's Dialogues on Equitation. With useful notes and commentary throughout. The publisher has reorganized the notes and index for easier use, and has made some other small changes. Essential for the student or historian of classical horsemanship, and good value. (Item ID: 15143)
