Stables : Beautiful Paddocks, Horse Barns, and Tack Rooms Hardback

Description

From the private to the historic to the state-of-the-art, a lavish tour of some of the most notable stables in the country.

A celebration of horses and their "lodgings," this exquisite book covers horse country across the United States--from the East Coast to the Bluegrass, the prairie and mountain ranches, and to the Pacific Coast--and traces the origins of twenty-five stunning stables, from their vernacular beginnings in the early nineteenth century to the contemporary designs of today.

Included are a farm in the countryside near Saratoga Springs, New York, which bears an 1830s-constructed main barn that originally housed draft horses and now accommodates retired race horses turned polo ponies, and a world-renowned Arabian horse-breeding farm in Santa Ynez Valley, California, that resembles a spa and country club with Mediterranean-style architecture and landscaping and has in the stable courtyard a stone fountain reminiscent of the ubiquitous waterworks in Moorish palaces.

Uniquely spectacular, each selection is a reflection of its regional heritage.

Featuring all-new color photography, Stables showcases the best of America's diverse equine homes--a must-have for any horse or architecture enthusiast.
