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.

Horse Power and Magic
Evans, George Ewart

1979. Evans, George Ewart. Horse Power and Magic. London: Faber and Faber 1979. 240p, 6 line ills., 16p of photos. Very good hardcover in good d.j. (soiled). Neat owner's ink stamp on front endpaper and occasional page margin. ** How the heavy horse was used in England after World War II; how the traditions of older horsemen have been passed on; "the ways of horse-tamers whose skills had a touch of 'magic' about them." With much on the Suffolk Punch draft horse. One of the fine rural-life studies by this pioneering oral historian. Can be sent outside the U.S. for less than the default shipping rate.
