From Wild Horse to Riding Horse - “Curiosity is a horse’s essential drive to explore his world. He sizes up what could possibly be dangerous, but also what could help his survival. It could be a new source of food or water, but also an encounter with a horse that might become a new companion. Curiosity is closely linked with learning behaviour and dealing with new situations. Being curious enough to assess an unfamiliar situation is, therefore, important for survival.”

Exercises to Improve Rideability, Adjustability, and Performance - Show jumping and eventing are demanding, technically driven sports of precision, accuracy, and speed.

Principles and Postures to Improve Your Horsemanship - When Cathy Woods first expressed her idea of combining body/mind principles of yoga with equestrian activities, her friends, she writes, thought she was nuts. But believing in her intuition, she went ahead with her Body, Mind, Equine program, in which she combines horsemanship with mindfulness and the principles of yogic thinking. From the experience of that program, she has written a truly beautiful book, Yoga For Riders.

An Inspiring Story of Triumph & Survival - Amid the crashing surf, a yellow Labrador in a bright pink life jacket dragged a semi-conscious girl onto the beach. The dog’s tail hung limply between its hind legs. It circled once, and then twice, before settling down beside the girl, and resting its head and a paw across her chest. The dog closed its eyes against the sting of the icy rain. Eventually, exhaustion overtook it and it fell into a peaceful slumber despite the storm that raged around it.

They are available in three different angles: four degrees, six degrees, and eight degrees, to suit the needs of the individual rider. Made from high-quality mid-weight aluminum, the stirrups contain a wide footbed with a strong tread to keep the foot stable in the iron and prevent it from slipping.

The Wild Stallion Returns - Cloud was a wild stallion living with his little band on the slopes of the Arrowhead Mountains in southern Montana. His story might have been obscured into a forgotten piece of history if it was not for author Ginger Kathrens, who had been captivated by the almost white, hours-old foal she first encountered on May 29, 1995.
