Country Life September 2 2015

This week in Country Life we pay tribute to the 50 greatest equines to have touched British culture, from Arkle, Red Rum and Frankel to the White Horse of Uffington and War Horse.

We also identify the country house on which Jane Austen¬† based her novel Mansfield Park, we explore the architecture of racecourse grandstands, we admire Britain’s native ponies, we discover what’s hot to trot in the equestrian property market, we speak to Four Weddings star Anna Chancellor about Pony Clubbing, nudism and the role that changed her life and we learn to cook with tomatoes.
