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.

Horseman's Progress: The Development of Modern Riding
Littauer, Vladimir S.

Littauer, Vladimir S. Horseman's Progress: The Development of Modern Riding. Princeton, NJ: Van Nostrand 1962. xii, 316p, many ills. Good sturdy hardcover in fair d.j. Owner's ink name. ** Still a classic and very informative history of how the court, the cavalry, and the sportsman shaped dressage, show jumping, and all "educated riding." It was Littauer's own favorite of all his many books, and like them it reflects his bias for the forward seat. (Reissued as The Development of Modern Riding) (Wells 4651). (Item ID: 8463)
