There is no book - there can be no book - that will infallibly point the way to successful bloodstock breeding. Yet in the General Stud Book, the sport of horse racing has produced a genetic record extending over more than two centuries and a score of generations that contains an ordered store of facts about the hereditary qualities of one living species - data that no scientific body possesses. Here is the recorded experience of the man who, above all others of our time, has deciphered the riddle of its manifold pages: Federico Tesio. Tesio and Nearco and Ribot are the names of the greatest breeder, the outstanding sire, and the most consistent winner of the twentieth century, and perhaps of all time. The astonishing and prolonged success of the Italian stud at Dormello was the result not merely of an encyclopaedic knowledge of recorded facts about equine dynasties and the history of the thoroughbred but of wide practical experience in all parts of the world and acute, sustained and minute observation of the characteristics of particular horses and bloodlines. The essence of Tesio's philosophy and something of his genius has been distilled into this gem of a book.

Is your horse able to capriole? How can you tell whether he's suffering from thoroughpin? What does it mean if his mane - or your back - is roached?A complete compendium of equestrian terms, The Horseman's Illustrated Dictionary goes beyond simple words and phrases. In addition to providing easy-to-understand definitions of both esoteric and commonly used terms, Steven D. Price delves into their fascinating derivations. You'll learn, for example, that the name of the Percheron draft horse comes from the breed's origins in the La Perche area of Normandy, France; that "bishoping" - doctoring a horse's teeth to show a younger age - refers to an unscrupulous eighteenth-century horse dealer named Bishop; and that the "canter" gait is a shortened version of "Canterbury gallop," purportedly inspired by the pilgrims who rode to Canterbury at that pace. You'll discover that a "coop" does not necessarily contain chickens, find out why an "alligator" might be found in a horse arena, and learn that an "elevator" does not carry passengers but fits in a horse's mouth.Edifying and entertaining, The Horseman's Illustrated Dictionary is both a useful reference work and a lively panoramic view of the culture and history of the horse. This beautifully illustrated volume proves that horse people of all interests can learn to speak one another's language. It's the perfect gift for any horse-lover.

Porlock Vale Riding School played a major part in British equestrianism in the years following the Second World War. Under the auspices of Tony Collings, the establishment pioneered the development of cross-country and dressage. Collings himself was among the earliest competitors at Badminton, the founder of the Horse of the Year Show and trainer of the British 1952 Olympic Three-day Event team. After his tragic death in 1954, the team he left behind at Porlock fought to maintain the high standards he had set and increase the number of courses that he had established. This book presents the history of the riding school in its heyday. It is lavishly illustrated with over 150 images - most of which have never been seen before - which include atmospheric shots of the school and its environs, famous horses and riders, and the 1952 Olympic team in training. Written and compiled by the daughter of the manager of the school, it is essential purchase for anyone with an interest in the heritage of modern equestrianism.
