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.

"Stories from the Tack Room" [cover title: Show Horse Lore]
Puckett, Liz

Puckett, Liz. "Stories from the Tack Room." In Tennessee Folklore Society Bulletin, June 1980: a special issue devoted to "Show Horse Lore." 92p, 1 ill. Very good paperbound. ** The author collected almost 300 stories from Tennesee Walking Horse and American Saddle Horse trainers, grooms, and owners, and here she shares and analyzes many of them. They are grouped by theme, such as horses to remember, the art of selling horses, judging shows, and pranksters and their victims. Great oral history--stories that don't usually get into the books. Can be sent outside the U.S. for less than the default shipping rate. (Item ID: 5080)
