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 Gymnasium of the Horse
Steinbrecht, Gustav

Steinbrecht, Gustav. The Gymnasium of the Horse. Cleveland Heights: Xenophon 1995 (1st pub. 1886). xix, 319p, no ills. New paperbound. ** Foreword by William Steinkraus, who describes this work as a "cornerstone of the equestrian literature, a work of truly remarkable coherence, comprehensiveness, and depth of understanding; its careful study cannot help but repay the thoughtful horseman many times over." In Germany, where Gymnasium of the Horse has been in print ever since it was published in 1886, Steinbrecht is ranked with Xenophon, Pluvinel, La Gueriniere, and Newcastle as a master of the equestrian art. Translated from the improved German edition of 1935. Can be sent outside the U.S. for less than the shipping rate default. ** In 2013 we celebrate 40 years of selling good horse books!
