Literature is replete with references
to the horse. From children’s stories to great works of fiction, historical
texts and how-to manuals, poetry, biographies—in virtually every genre some
shelf space must be allotted for tales of the horse and related sports.
Our book department has amassed an
impressive library of old and rare publications encompassing the spectrum of
horse-related subjects. No discipline is overlooked: foxhunting, racing,
polo, dressage, eventing are all covered. Training manuals are available as
are archival records. There’s an extensive list of children’s titles and
fiction suitable for a wide audience. Some publications bear a printing date
as far back as the early 1800s.
Of more current vintage, you’ll also
find an array of books by today’s leading authors on horse sport topics.
Thrilling mysteries (murder in the hunt field!), autobiographies by
legendary figures, and photo collections to embellish any coffee table are
Whether for your own library or as
thoughtful gifts, you’re sure to find something suitable on our shelves.
