Author Margaret Cabell Self was an iconic presence in the horse world from the 1940s thru the 1970s, writing and collaborating on over 40 books on horses and horsemanship. First printed in 1966 as a pictorial guide the the American Horse Show. The majority of the photographs were taken at the two of the country’s largest horse shows (at that time), The Children’s Services 15th Annual Horse show given on the Polo Grounds at Farmington, Connecticut; and the Santa Barbara National Show in Santa Barbara, California. The author covers everything from preparations for giving a horse show to the breakdown of the most popular classes at the horse show and what the horses and riders are being judged on. This is a wonderful look back in time when horse shows were just starting to get moving in popularity. 1972 edition, softcover, very good vintage condition with no marks or tears, just some discoloring of the edges due to age. 184 pages, published in USA by Wilshire Book Company, Hollywood CA.
