The Ideal Horse Book Excerpt:

Any horseman would agree with Burt Phillips that the ideal horse is obedient, responsive, well balanced, and pleasant to ride. In The Ideal Horse, he describes a step-by-step training program directed at producing such a mount. Basing his methods on an intimate knowledge of equine anatomy and psychology, Mr. Phillips explains that "we are always training a horse, for better or worse, when we are working with him," since horses learn by direct association of ideas. From the initial work in hand through lungeing, driving, and the various stages of mounted training, precise photographs and in-depth drawings enhance the text, making this book a valuable guide to riders and trainers alike. Years of practical experience and personal observations balance uniquely with a deep appreciation of the classical principles of riding and of the world's great teachers. Readers may compare the terminology to that of Waldemar Seunig, as exemplified by such phrases as "unconstrained" to denote a lack of mental and physical tenseness; "gallop departs" in place of "canter" to avoid the careless use of the term "canter" (the "collected gallop") for the "natural gallop." But linguistic differences will not detract from the common-sense approach and explanations of the rider's responsibilites. The basic exercises progress into lateral movements, two-tracking and other advanced work, with the flexibility of the theory making it both practical and correct. Mr. Phillips also is careful to emphasize that the basic nature of the horse must be considered in his training. In all, this is a complete picture guide that will help make your horse-whether it be a competitive dressage, a western reining, a show jumper, or a pleasure horse-the ideal horse for you.

Brother Mendel s Perfect Horse Book Excerpt:

Europe's twentieth-century history told through the incredible story of a horse: the Lippizaner. 'When you touch a Lippizaner,' Frank Westerman was told as a child, 'you are touching history.' In Brother Mendel's Perfect Horse he explores the history of these unique creatures, an extraordinary troop of pedigree horses first bred as personal mounts for the Emperor of Austria-Hungary. Following the bloodlines of the studbook, he reconstructs the story of four generations of imperial steeds as they survive the fall of the Habsburg Empire, two world wars and the insane breeding experiments conducted under Hitler, Stalin and Ceausescu. But what begins as a fairytale becomes a chronicle of the quest for racial purity. Carrying the reader across Europe, from imperial stables and stud farms to the controversial gene labs of today, Westerman asks, if animal breeders are so good at genetic engineering, why do attempts to perfect the human strain always end in tragedy? Brother Mendel's Perfect Horse, a unique and engrossing fusion of history and travel writing, is a modern fable in which the pureblood horse ends up revealing man's own shortcomings.

The Ride of Her Life Book Excerpt:

The triumphant true story of a woman who rode her horse across America in the 1950s, fulfilling her dying wish to see the Pacific Ocean, from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Perfect Horse and The Eighty-Dollar Champion “The gift Elizabeth Letts has is that she makes you feel you are the one taking this trip. This is a book we can enjoy always but especially need now.”—Elizabeth Berg, author of The Story of Arthur Truluv In 1954, sixty-three-year-old Maine farmer Annie Wilkins embarked on an impossible journey. She had no money and no family, she had just lost her farm, and her doctor had given her only two years to live. But Annie wanted to see the Pacific Ocean before she died. She ignored her doctor’s advice to move into the county charity home. Instead, she bought a cast-off brown gelding named Tarzan, donned men’s dungarees, and headed south in mid-November, hoping to beat the snow. Annie had little idea what to expect beyond her rural crossroads; she didn’t even have a map. But she did have her ex-racehorse, her faithful mutt, and her own unfailing belief that Americans would treat a stranger with kindness. Annie, Tarzan, and her dog, Depeche Toi, rode straight into a world transformed by the rapid construction of modern highways. Between 1954 and 1956, the three travelers pushed through blizzards, forded rivers, climbed mountains, and clung to the narrow shoulder as cars whipped by them at terrifying speeds. Annie rode more than four thousand miles, through America’s big cities and small towns. Along the way, she met ordinary people and celebrities—from Andrew Wyeth (who sketched Tarzan) to Art Linkletter and Groucho Marx. She received many offers—a permanent home at a riding stable in New Jersey, a job at a gas station in rural Kentucky, even a marriage proposal from a Wyoming rancher. In a decade when car ownership nearly tripled, when television’s influence was expanding fast, when homeowners began locking their doors, Annie and her four-footed companions inspired an outpouring of neighborliness in a rapidly changing world.
