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.

Rosina Copper

Gibson, Mary. Rosina Copper. [The Author] 1952. 32p + several photos. Good paperbound (covers chipped, soiled). Published in aid of the Olympic Games and International Equestrian Fund. ** The author rescued Rosina Copper from starvation, turned her into a Pony Club show jumper, and learned that she had been "one of the best ponies" on the England polo team in 1927. Her story was later told in two young adult books by Kitty Barne. Most of this pamphlet is about her show career and her several brushes with death. The short foreword by J.R.C. Gannon summarizes what was known of her polo career. Can be sent outside the U.S. for less than the default shipping rate. Scarce; not in Wells. (Item ID: 15805)
