As an equestrian, I see alot of stables, tack rooms etc...but nothing prepared me for the beauty that this book shares with it's lucky reader. Beautiful, exhilarating, peaceful, aisles of horse "homes" for those lucky enough to be a part of. Not your old lovely traditional cobwebbed barn here -these stables are magnificent...the cabinetry woodwork is masterfully applied and the outcome is nothing short of the best. The best of materials and beauty go hand in hand and the reader is taken on a journey down a path he will enjoy forever. This is a must for all equestrians and hopeful equestrians...even for the sheer artistry of this book, it's a must have for me!

I was really hoping for more. The book details some stables around the world but doesn't go into detail about any of them. Not the authors fault since that is how it was written thoughout, just my expectation that wasn't met. As I am designing my stable now I was looking for more info on how the stables were laid out and maybe some lessons learned or best practices. This is a nice coffee table book to look at pretty stables with nice horses in it.

This is a beautiful book whether you are horse lover or not. Terrific pictures. Lots of ideas. A photo visit to examples of some of the finest and most exclusive stables across the US. Places that very few of us will ever be able to visit in person.
