Description

This collection of the most beautiful stables in the world profiles the history and design of notable stables from Europe, Asia and America. Included among the stables are the storied Calumet Farm in Lexington, Kentucky, the hi-rise stables of the Hong Kong Jockey Club, and a state-of-the-art stable in Mexico designed by the famed architect Luis Barragan. The book is divided into three groupings. The first showcases stables that have a record for producing champion race horses. The second are luxury stables that are in essence "temples to the horse" that reflect the passion and commitment of their owners. Finally, there are legendary stables that have the patina of centuries of equestrian history including those at Versailles and the ancient sacred stables at the Buddhist monastery at Nikko, Japan. Taken together, the book features the best in stable design both old and new, and is the perfect gift for any horse owner - or anyone who aspires to be one.

Author Biography

Olga Prud'homme Farge and Alice de la Moureyre travelled the world in search of fabulous stables for their documentary series on French television. It was this experience - which gained them entrance into the rarefied world of horse owners and breeders -- that inspired the book. Gabriele Boiselle is one of the most successful horse photographers in the world. Jean-Louis Gouraud is the contributor of the foreword and is the author of novels, essays, plays and other writings about horses and horse racing.
