RACE COUNTRY WITH CLARE BALDING DVD: The shows were so entertaining, so professional, and adorned with such stunning camera work, that I pressed rewind and watched it all over again. RACING POST The West Berkshire town of Lambourn, often called The Valley of the Racehorse , is unique in that almost the whole community is involved in horseracing. This observational documentary series, presented by Clare Balding, takes a look at the everyday lives of the racing fraternity - from top jockeys and trainers such as Henrietta Knight and Mick Channon, down to the stable lads and saddlers. It takes in the highs and lows of the season s meetings, the foaling period and a behind the scenes look at the day-to-day running of some of the country s top stables. LITTLE BOOK OF HORSES: This Little Book of Horses describes the story of the horse including eventing, show jumping, dressage, polo, endurance racing, driving and hunting. Before this, however, the horse worked for man for thousands of years pulling ploughs, barges and carts in peace time and carrying kings, knights and soldiers into battle in war time. Its contribution to man s history has not gone without recognition. Beautiful in appearance and elegant in motion, since ancient times the noble horse has been the subject of poetry, prose, paintings and sculpture. Little Book of Horses takes you on a tour of the most popular breeds of today, from American Quarter Horses to Shire and Welsh Horses.
