The Riding Teacher, Alois Podhajsky
1 Alois Podhajsky The Riding Teacher
Harrap 233835 London 1983 0245520414 / 9780245520419 Hardcover Very Good Condition Very Good Anton Haug First published in 1973 and reprinted many times, The Riding Teacher is an invaluable aid for all instructors and also for riders teaching themselves. Colonel Podhajsky examines in depth the psychology of riding and the relationship between teacher, pupil and horse. He includes chapters on the basic theory of riding; dressage; systematic riding instruction; overcoming difficulties and setbacks and participating in competitions. Now considered a classic of equestrian literature, The Riding Teacher should be read by everyone seriously interested in classical riding principles. In her foreword Sylvia Loch says "If every riding instructor, examiner and competitor were to purchase and inwardly digest this the last of Podhajsky's books, we would all appreciate many happier horses and a higher standard of equitation throughout the land." Colonel Podhajsky was considered to be a great riding teacher and a fine competitor whose skill and elegance made him one of the most accomplished horsemen of the post-war era. He was an Olympic Games medallist and a Director of the Spanish Riding School in Vienna. 204 pages. With black and white photographs and drawings. Illustrator: Anton Haug. Quantity Available: 1.

The Man Who Listens To Horses: The Story of a Real-Life Horse Whisperer, Monty Roberts
8 Monty Roberts The Man Who Listens To Horses: The Story of a Real-Life Horse Whisperer
Ballantine Books 234667 New York 1997 034542705X / 9780345427052 Softcover Good Condition Monty Roberts is a real-life horse whisperer -- an American original whose gentle training methods reveal the depth of communication possible between man and animal. He can take a wild, high-strung horse who has never before been handled and persuade that horse to accept a bridle, saddle, and rider in 30 minutes. His powers may seem like magic, but his amazing 'horse sense' is based on a lifetime of experience. Roberts started riding at the age of two, and at the age of 13 he went alone into the high deserts of Nevada to study mustangs in the wild. What he learned there changed his life forever. In "The Man Who Listens to Horses," he tells about his early days as a rodeo rider in California, his violent horse-trainer father, who was unwilling to accept Monty's unconventional training methods, his friendship with James Dean, his struggle to be accepted in the professional horse-training community, and the invitation that changed his life -- to demonstrate his method of "join-up" to the Queen of England. From his groundbreaking work with horses, Roberts has acquired an unprecedented understanding of nonverbal communication, an understanding that applies to human relationships as well. He has shown that between parent and child, employee and employer (he's worked with over 250 corporations, including General Motors, IBM, Disney, and Merrill Lynch), and abuser and abused, there are forms of communication far stronger than the spoken word and that they are accessible to all who will learn to listen. 309 pages.

Essential Care of the Ridden Horse, Peter Gray
12 Peter Gray Essential Care of the Ridden Horse
David & Charles 225218 London 2002 First Edition 0715311581 / 9780715311585 Hardcover Very Good Condition Very Good He sets out to extend and reinforce that knowledge with this thorough yet easy-to-read guide to caring for the ridden horse. Whether the owner enjoys gentle hacks through the countryside or the thrill of competition, understanding how to keep the horse at peak fitness is all part of the relationship. Peter Gray pays particular attention to to those common conditions that call a temporary halt to riding activity - lameness, respiratory infections, muscular strains - but that are very often caused by incorrect management and are therefore avoidable. He also unravels the important factors that influence performance in horses facing active competition; the practical, sensible everyday things that can mean the difference between losing and winning. This is a book of good sense, practical advice and thorough expert knowledge for all owners who want the best for their horses. 160 pages. Illustrated with colour and black and white photographs. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Animals & Nature::Horses; Animals & Birds; ISBN: 0715311581. ISBN/EAN: 9780715311585. Inventory No: 225218. Hardcover
