Bit of Britain Brings Virtual Book Signing to the Eventing World

June 12, 2013 — For a limited time only, purchase Modern Eventing with Phillip Dutton through Bit of Britain and your book will arrive with a personal autograph from the author and international event rider. As an added bonus, Bit of Britain will film Dutton signing each book with a personal thank you that will be emailed to each customer in the form of a video clip.

From now through June 30, visitors on Bit of Britain’s website can select the special signed version of Modern Eventing to add to their orders. Once in the shopping cart, customers can add their personal message that they would like Dutton to inscribe in their book (up to ten words) in the order comments. The signing will take place on July 1 and video clips will be emailed to the address on file for each order. There is no additional charge to order the autographed copy over the regular copy, however, autographed copies will not be shipped until after July 1.

“Not everyone is able to come to an event, such as a book signing, in a specific place at a specific time, so I wanted to bring the event to everyone around the world with a personal touch beyond the book inscription,” said John Nunn, President, Bit of Britain. “This is the first time we have seen a virtual book signing for the eventing audience.”

Orders can be placed online at or via phone at 888-442-5015 Monday through Saturday from 10:00AM through 5:00PM. Published by Trafalgar Square Books, Modern Eventing with Phillip Dutton covers training, conditioning, and competing in all three phases of events, with tips and advice from the experts on his internationally respected eventing team. From daily maintenance to competition day turnout, as well as Dutton’s own schooling exercises both on the flat and over fences, this books covers everything to help event riders prepare for a safe and confident experience.

Bit of Britain specializes in supplying quality products to meet the needs of riders in the Eventing disciplines of Dressage, Cross-Country and Show Jumping, as well as health care products and supplies to meet the needs of any horse owner. In more than 25 years in business, Bit of Britain has never strayed from the defining principle of selling trusted, well-made products which has made the company a top retailer in the industry.
