Randy Leffingwell, Ultimate Horse Barns (Voyageur, 2006). Funny how things work out. I had originally planned on Ultimate Horse Barns being among the first books I read in 2008; it turns out it's the first book I finished in 2009. Still, it doesn't matter when you read this book, only that, if you're interested in architecture and that sort of thing, that you do. Leffingwell profiles fourteen of America's institutions' horse barns, ranging from the stately and classical (George Vanderbilt's Randy Leffingwell, Ultimate Horse Barns (Voyageur, 2006).

Author Randy Leffingwell has selected barns that possess exceptional qualities-a clever response to site challenges; meticulous attention to detail, equine health, and safety; or significant historical context.

The masterpieces of equine architecture featured in this book attest to that devotion. With luxuries such as mahogany stalls, Spanish-tiled floors, and the latest in horse technology and training, these are not your average barns; rather, they attest to the extremes of elegant simplicity and outrageous glamour that convey a horse owners devotion, ambition, and style.

Place of Publication. Create This Book 2: Volume 2 by Moriah Elizabeth (Paperback, 2018).

Ultimate Horse Barns. While most agricultural barns represent architecture without architects, that is building that grew and evolved from need, horse barns and stables, nearly from the earliest days, were designed in ways that protected their inhabitants. As a longtime rider and as a longtime student of architecture, this project fascinated me. From the oldest examples in this book to the newest, each client brought challenges to the architect who, in keeping with practices and philosophies of their time, adjusted each element to satisfy the owner and care for the horse

The love of horses often finds its expression in the horse barn-in the grandeur of the architecture, the extravagance of the detail, and the extent of the comforts that owners lavish on their favorite creatures. The masterpieces of equine architecture featured in this book attest to that devotion. With luxuries such as mahogany stalls, Spanish-tiled floors, and the latest in horse technology and training, these are not your average barns; rather, they attest to the extremes of elegant simplicity and outrageous glamour that convey a horse owners devotion, ambition, and style.From prestigious and well-known horse barns such as Churchill Downs to private stables nestled in the Colorado mountains, Ultimate Horse Barns comprises a wide variety of barns certain to pique any horse owners fancy. Twenty North American barns in all, each one of a kind, they all have one thing in common-the love, appreciation, and awe of the horses they house.

Comments:

Bulace
Am I the only one who noticed how terribly this book was written and edited?! Like the TWO spelling/grammatical errors on the first page of chapter 1? The completely inaccurate photo descriptions (for instance, in one photo, listing a bay horse as "so-and-so" and then in another photo on the next page, calling a completely different chestnut horse the same name!)? Or how about describing the wrong photo's all together?! Don't believe me? Go look. I'll wait.

I wont even get into the actual style and organization of the "stories," except to say that I have read 5th grade book reports better written than this book. Saying I was extremely disappointed would be an understatement. How does something so poorly edited even get published?

If you like pretty pictures of pretty ponies then buy this book but don't ever try to read it. It will make your brain hurt.

I bought this book expecting to see pages of luxurious and elegant barns. Instead there are a couple of nice barns but the others are just regular stables, nothing special. With all the grand Haciendas in nearby Mexico, with the fancy stables formerly attached to old family estates, when we have the old Gladstone, etc. it is not too much to expect the book to live up to its title. As it is, I know of at least three of my friend's barns that are nicer than some in this book.

My question is how could a book be shrink wrapped and have a page ripped out of it? Otherwise it was a fair purchase. I was looking more for international barns, not just the conventional USA.
