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 Development of Modern Riding [reissue of Horseman's Progress]
Littauer, Vladimir S.

Littauer, Vladimir S. The Development of Modern Riding. NY: Howell 1991. New fwd. by William C. Steinkraus. xviii, 302p, many ills. Very good hardcover in very good d.j. ** "The story of formal riding from Renaissance times to the present": dressage, the cavalry, and show jumping. This reissue of Horseman's Progress (1962) is essential and thought-provoking reading for every student of horsemanship. Bear in mind that it reflects Littauer's bias for forward over collected riding. It was his own favorite of his many books. (Cf. Wells 4651). (Item ID: 4654)
