England on Horseback by Zara Colchester and Charlotte Sainsbury-Plaice
Model Number: 9781908337146
Travelling through England and doing it on horseback is to rediscover both the romance of the countryside and man’s relationship with his horse and his environment. Zara Colchester and Charlotte Sainsbury-Plaice have spent the last year travelling all over England, researching some of the most spectacular riders the countryside has to offer.
With twelve riders to choose from, ranging from Dorset in the southwest to the Yorkshire Moors in the northeast, this specially photographed book will transport you back to a time before cars and motorways, when life was simpler and slower. Escape down tracks that are carefully catalogued in the Doomsday Book, or past Thomas Hardy’s cottage. Race along Holkham Beach in Norfolk or meander at leisure through ancient Cotswold villages.
Each ride contains a beautifully hand drawn yet comprehensive map detailing the route, points of interest along the way and how long it will take. A glossary for each ride offers practical information on where to stay, eat and visit.
