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.

Reglement pour le Dressage du Cheval d'Armes [1914]
Fillis, James, trans

Fillis, James, trans. Reglement pour le Dressage du Cheval d'Armes: Etabli en 1908 par la Commission de l'Ecole d'Application de Cavalerie des Officiers a Saint-Petersbourg. Paris: Flammarion, n.d. [1914]. viii, 156p, 22 line ills. + frontispiece photo of Fillis. Very good hardcover (publisher's binding?). In French. ** Fillis served for several years as chief instructor of the Officers' Cavalry School in St. Petersburg. This manual is based on the Russian cavalary manual (1908), which he has translated and adapted for European use. From basic groundwork to jumping (Caprilli was still on the horizon). Very scarce.
