Published to commemorate the reopening of a renowned equestrian museum, this book celebrates the grandeur of the horse and its presence in Chantilly. One of France's most visited monuments, the Ch�teau de Chantilly features gardens by Andr� Le N�tre, a world-renowned art collection, and impressive stables that were the center of 18th-century French equestrian culture and were transformed into a captivating museum in 1982. Now, under the auspices of the Aga Khan and the Foundation for the Safeguarding and Development of the Domain of Chantilly, the Museum of the Horse has undergone an extensive renovation. In addition to detailing the contents of the museum's galleries, this beautifully illustrated volume explores the important role that Chantilly has played in horse racing and hunting. It takes readers on a tour of the historic stables and surrounding grounds and, in personal essays, looks at the close ties between horse and rider through the centuries.
