A Beginners Guide To Horse Riding

RRP $17.99

A practical guide to developing the classical seat for all serious horsemen and women Comprehensive advice on the training of the horse from earliest handling as a foal, through basic training and on to jumping and dressage A Beginners guide to Horse Riding is intended as a companion volume to the author's popular The Horse Owner's Handbook. It is a practical guide to developing the classical seat and, consequently, the accepted training and riding of the horse by the use of the aids which have been developed since academic riding was first written about, three hundred years before Christ. It covers broadly the psychology and physiology of the horse at a level required by all serious horsemen and women. Without this elementary knowledge a thorough understanding of the horse and his needs cannot be achieved. The Horse Rider's Handbook takes the reader through the training of the horse from his earliest handling as a foal, through his basic training and on to jumping and dressage. The work goes on to explain the requirements of competition dressage, show jumping and cross country riding, together with some guidance on how these equestrian disciplines may be approached in order to stand a fair chance of success. Any rider who takes his or her discipline seriously will benefit from the advice given in this excellent handbook."


The Artist Who Painted A Blue Horse

RRP $16.99

This is Eric Carle's wonderful new book, "The Artist Who Painted a Blue Horse". "I am an artist..." begins Eric Carle's vibrant tribute to the creative life. And just like an imaginative child, this is one artist who paints the world as he sees it - a red crocodile, an orange elephant, a purple fox, a black polar bear (!) and a wonderful polka-dotted donkey.

Filled with some of the most magnificently colourful animals of Eric Carle's career, this is a book that celebrates imagination and the artist within us all. Inspired by the work of the great Expressionist painter Franz Marc, a founder of the artists' group known as Der Blaue Reiter ("The Blue Rider"), who famously used abstract blue horses in his paintings. Marc's vibrantly colourful paintings influenced generations of artists, and fired the imaginations of children's book artists far and wide. Examples of Marc's paintings and a short biography are included at the end of the book.

Riding A Dead Horse

RRP $17.99

My name is Aspen Joyce. Once I had everything, I just didn't know how to appreciate it. That all changed when my whole family and my horse were killed in a car accident. They say that it was a miracle that I survived. I guess I have a different definition for 'miracle'. So I was sent to live in Arizona with someone I barely know-- my biological dad who left me and Mom when I was only four years old. I barely got there when I realized something was really wrong. I was being haunted by a phantom. A Ghost Horse.
