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.

Training the Roman Cavalry: From Arrian's Ars Tactica
Hyland, Ann

Hyland, Ann. Training the Roman Cavalry: From Arrian's Ars Tactica. Dover, NH: Alan Sutton 1993. 224p, some photos and line ills. Very good hardcover in very good d.j. ** Using a new translation of Arrian's military manual, Hyland describes Roman parade-ground training exercises (lance-throwing, close-order fighting, various galloping patterns, etc.). Many of them resemble today's games or movements, and she describes how she reconstructed and tried them. She also discusses other aspects of the Roman cavalry (selection of horses, equipment used, etc.). A lot of information is here! (Originally published at $52.00) Can be sent outside the U.S. for less than the default shipping rate. (Item ID: 7315)
