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 Horse In Art, John Baskett
6 John Baskett The Horse In Art
Weidenfeld & Nicolson 233707 London 1980 0297777238 / 9780297777236 Hardcover (in Slipcase) Very Good Condition Very Good The horse is an icon of civilization. Man has long depended on the horse in farming, transportation, war, religion, and exploration, and as a consequence we have a wonderfully rich legacy of horses depicted in art. This spectacular book presents the horse in its many roles since its discovery and domestication until the present day. Distinguished author John Baskett begins with the horse in ancient civilizations, including masterpieces from Asia, and then discusses the horse in the Middle Ages, in which the animal was bred for warfare and agriculture and is represented in such scenes as the Bayeaux Tapestry. Renaissance artists, whose interest in horses was as great as that for the human form, are then discussed, evidence of which is shown in the skillful drawings of Leonardo da Vinci. The 17th century brought beautiful examples of naturalism from such masters as Peter Paul Rubens, while George Stubbs became the premier horse painter in 18th-century England. Works by Americans George Catlin and Frederic Remington are also explored, along with exquisite miniatures of natural scenes produced by Persian and Mughal painters from varying periods. A new edition of a long out-of-print gem, The Horse in Art brings artistic representation of the horse to life, with additional illustrations, a new chapter on the 20th century, and the inclusion of biographies of the artists featured in the book. With beautiful color reproductions and an accessible text, this book is a unique and indispensable guide to the changing cultural perspectives, artistic styles, and symbolic interpretations associated with its timeless and much-loved subject. 160 pages. Illustrated in colour. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 2-3 kilos. Category: Animals & Nature::Horses; Art & Design; Art. ISBN: 0297777238. ISBN/EAN: 9780297777236. Inventory No: 233707. This book is extra heavy, and may involve extra shipping charges to some countries. Hardcover

Mandarin 230494 Australia 1996 1863306064 / 9781863306065 Softcover Very Good Condition No Dust Jacket Four decades of tales from the turf from Australia's leading writer on history and horses, Les Carlyon. Every outrage that occurs on any racecourse anywhere can be explained by one line from Damon Runyon- 'Well, it is horse racing.' Les Carlyon's acclaimed collection of feature stories and vignettes from Australian racing now spans forty years. From Bart Cummings before he was a Cup legend to Colin Hayes and Kerry Packer and Peter Moody and his unbeatable Black Caviar, no one sees the magic and heartbreak in the world of horses and racing with quite the poetry of Les Carlyon. Les's eye is both sharp and tender, his writing is so vivid you can almost feel the steaming breath of the mighty gallopers on your cheek and he is under no illusions about the reality of this glorious, awful, fortune-making, heart-breaking sport. 284 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.

Rosenberg 233841 Australia 2008 1877058637 / 9781877058639 Softcover (Stiff Boards) Very Good Condition No Dust Jacket Trailblazers is the story of the first Australians to compete at an international level in FEI equestrian events. The six men selected for the 1956 Olympic Games had just 14 months to learn it all on the English Show circuit. They had never competed in a three day event, didn't understand dressage and had little experience of Olympic-style showjumping. At the Olympics they competed in one of the most difficult crosscountry courses in history and came close to winning bronze. They blazed a trail for the Rome Olympic team and set the course for the future of FEI equestrian events in Australia. Wyatt Thompson is the last surviving member of the first Olympic equestrians. 208 pages. Illustrated with colour and black and white photographs. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos.
