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.

No d.j. ** Memoirs of sport and life in Britain, Africa, and India, with references to many noted contemporary horsemen throughout.

With much on polo and steeplechasing, subjects on which his opinions are sounder. (Not in Wells). (Item ID: 6908)
