The Crabbet Arabian Stud: Its History and Influence

£29.99

Product description

This book gives a detailed history of 'the world's most famous Arabian stud' and its influence upon the Arabian Horse world. The book contains numerous photographs of people, places and horses.

The book could not have been written by three more knowledgeable people short of Lady Anne, Lady Wentworth or Wilfrid Blunt! Mrs. Archer is a governor of the Arab Horse Society and was the protege of Lady Wentworth, Mr. Covey was the stud manager and last owner of Crabbet Arabian Stud and Mr. Colin Pearson served as Secretary of the Arab Horse Society longer than anyone else in the history of the organization. All knew Lady Wentworth extraordinarily well and Mr. Covey was not only close to Lady Wentworth but knew her parents since his birth as his father was their first stud manager. Each writer was well acquainted with the background of the stud, the family and knew the horses intimately as individual creatures physically, emotionally and genetically. Simply stated their words bring home with considerable force the importance of Crabbet to the world's leading Arabian horse breeding programs. Without the Crabbet Arabian, the modern Arabian horse would not be the animal it is today. There would be no straight Egyptian, straight Russian, straight Spanish, straight Polish as the horses are contemporarily recognized but for Crabbet Park's Arabian Stud. If a breeder wants to know the Arabian horse and the integrity with which the modern Arabian evolves-this book is Arabdom's Grail.

The hardcover book is in very good condition. The dustjacket has some marks and small tears along the edges and on the spine. The binding is sound and the pages are clean and unmarked. There are no inscriptions
