Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Owners show their love and devotion towards their horses in many different ways. Sire Henry Pellatt had the names of his favorite horses embossed in goldleaf at the head of their mahogany stalls and installed brick in a herringbone pattern on the floor to lessen the risk of a horse slipping and falling. Don Cohn has two 60-foot Aqua-Tred submerged treadmills with water jets that force heated water to massage muscles for racehorse rehabilitation. The common thread through the eighteen horse barn masterpieces featured in this book is that each barn is an innovative, beautiful structure that embodies the owners’ love and appreciation for horses.

Author Randy Leffingwell has selected barns that possess exceptional qualities—a clever response to site challenges; meticulous attention to details, equine health, and safety; or significant historical context. The purposes of the barns range from havens for private owners to successful breeding and training facilities to historical landmarks.

Ultimate Horse Barns captures the architectural beauty of these stunning structures, as well as the love and passion the owners have for their horses.

About the Author

Throughout grade school, high school, and into college, before Randy Leffingwell veered into journalism and photography, he wanted to be an architect. He has been an enthusiastic, if irregular, rider for twenty years and has owned an American Quarter Horse. His wife, Carolyn, competed in hunter-jumper and equestrian events. They live in Santa Barbara, California.
