  • Tarok af Sven-Ove Kjældgaard
    - Familien Laursen og Dannebrog på fire ben
    af Sven-Ove Kjældgaard

    1977. Tusindvis af tilskuere kæmper om de bedste pladser på Billund travbane, bilerne snegler sig af sted på byens indfaldsveje. Kaos truer, da politiet over radioen griber ind og advarer folk mod at køre mod byen.Årsagen til tumulten hedder Tarok. En rød hest, der skal løbe sit sidste løb inden deltagelsen i verdensmesterskabet i New York om to uger. Begejstringen er enorm. Taroks ejer Karl Laursen modtager sække vis af fanbreve, folk, der ikke kender for og bag på en hest, følger den røde hest i aviser og ugeblade, diskuterer den på arbejdspladsen og i strikke klubben.I dag, over tredive år senere, kan de fleste stadig huske Tarok. Mange har fortalt børn og børnebørn om travhesten, der blev en hel nations yndling. Men historien om Tarok er ikke blot en historie om en vinderhest, der løb fra alle de andre. Det er også fortællingen om en lille jysk familie og deres vej fra fattigdom til velstand, om hårdt, ihærdigt arbejde og om kærlighed. Og så er det historien om, hvordan en rød hest satte Danmark på verdenskortet og samlede ikke blot en familie, men en hel nation.Tarok er en øjenvidneberetning i tekst og billeder om Tarok og hans familie fortalt af Sven-Ove Kjældgaard og illustreret af Bent Tilsted – skrevet i tæt samarbejde med Jørn Laursen. Forfatter og fotograf har fulgt familien Laursen på nærmeste hold i knap 40 år. Ikke kun på væddeløbsbanerne, men også i stalden, på marken og ved ka ebordet i køkkenet.

  • Laminitis: An Equine Plague of Unconscionable Proportions af Jaime Jackson Spar 20%
    - Healing and Protecting Your Horse Using Natural Principles & Practices
    af Jaime Jackson

    From the Foreword: ';This book provides a concise and useful guide for horse owners to take immediate and productive action against laminitis and keep it out of their horses' lives once and for all . . . Nipping away at the edges of the [laminitis] plague, NHC continues to grow with adherents who want nothing better than what is good for their horses. So, the answer lies not in a drug-addicted world of ';treating symptoms' but in the holistic fold of equine vitality. There is no shortage of things that we all can, and should, do to support this end: more responsible horse ownership, good science, good research, safe feeds, safe drugs, and a revolutionary new vanguard of allied services that inure to the healthful vitality of the horse, not a perpetual state of laminitis. But we'll never see any of it, if we persist in the delusion that the current stream of ';profits at all costs' the industrialization of laminitis equates to the well-being of the horse. It doesn't, and the intent of this book is to show why, while pointing to a good path to get ourselves and our horses on ';at all costs'.' Laminitis lays out Jackson's most current thinking and strategies for dealing with this insidious disease of the horse. Jaime Jackson is a 40 year veteran farrier turned NHC practitioner, researcher, author, and advocate for humane horse care practices. He founded the AANHCP in 2000, and with his colleague Jill Willis, the ISNHCP in 2009. Jackson has written a comprehensive range of books, articles, and PowerPoint lectures on the humane care of horses.

  • Faraway Horses af Buck Brannaman

    af Buck Brannaman

    "e;I've started horses since I was 12 years old and have been bit, kicked, bucked off and run over. I've tried every physical means to contain my horse in an effort to keep from getting myself killed. I started to realize that things would come much easier for me once I learned why a horse does what he does. This method works well for me because of the kinship that develops between horse and rider. "e; --Buck BrannamanIn THE FARAWAY HORSES, Brannaman shares his methods for training and provides a behind-the-scenes glimpse of Robert Redford's movie The Horse Whisperer, for which he was the technical advisor. *Authoratative figure in horsemanship*Reveals the key to understanding animalsBUCK BRANNAMAN is a horse gentler--not a horse "e;breaker"e;--who has started more than 10,000 young horses in his clinics.

  • Horses
    - Breeding, Health Disorders and Effects on Performance and Behavior
     

    There are several questions requiring attention for rearing horses. By providing appropriate care during early ages, important injuries such as lameness or musculoskeletal damage can be avoided, which becomes of capital importance especially among competition horses. In recent years, there has been an increasing body of evidence that the early rearing environment, in particular access to exercise, can have a positive effect on stimulating the musculoskeletal system and priming the tissue for the future demands it will face in the competition arena. Due to different reasons, such as their participation in competitions or exhibition, sales or pleasure, horses are transported from one location to another. Transportation could be a physical and psychological stressor for horses, contributing to the development of some diseases, thus the effects of transportation on performance and welfare should be appropriately taken into account.

  • Rehabilitating the Athletic Horse
     

    This is a book about the restitution of soundness in horses which have been trained under seemingly ideal conditions, and nonetheless suffered injury. Most of the book's authors have had direct experience in performing medical and surgical interventions designed to correct athletic injuries. Most of the authors have also been directly involved in the conditioning techniques designed to not only render their own charges ready for competition, but also ready to win. The book suggests how things can "e;go wrong"e; even with man's best-laid plans. The text then describes the path back from athletic injuries based upon that which is known about equine anatomy and physiology, and draws upon experience in human rehabilitation where applicable.

  • Grand National af Anne Holland
    - A Celebration of the World s Most Famous Horse Race
    af Anne Holland

    Every year the Grand National produces very different stories from jockeys and horses alike; uplifting scenes from a victor and heartbreak when a mere inch divides the loser from the winner at the end of nearly four-and-a-half miles and 30 challenging fences. The race has evolved over the years but there is one constant: luck, or the lack of it. How fitting, then, that in 1839 the first winner was named Lottery. Back then, huge crowds rode to Aintree by horseback, in carriages, carts or on foot. Hotels were so full that some slept four guests to a bed. Today the Grand National is probably the world's most famous horse race, with a global television audience of some 600 million in 140 countries.Anne Holland's richly informed book focuses on the race's various record-breakers, rather than being a purely chronological history. In this greatest of all steeplechases, many records have stood the test of time. It is still jockey George Stevens from the 19th century who has ridden the most winners - five. In 2019, Tiger Roll's second consecutive victory was the first time that the feat had been achieved since Red Rum in 1973-74, and before that, Reynoldstown in 1935-36. Throughout its vivid history, many people have been opposed to the Grand National, claiming it to be dangerous. During the 21st century the famous fences have been modified, the drop at Becher's Brook reduced, and the landing levelled. All this has led to a laudable reduction in injuries.The Grand National continues to provide men, women and diverse thoroughbred horses with a true test of skill, bravery and perseverance. Anne Holland's authoritative history celebrates one of the world's greatest sporting spectacles.

Through comprehensive contextual histories of film production and reception, together with detailed textual analysis, this book explores the aesthetic and emotive power of the enduringly popular horseracing genre, its ideologically-inflected landscape and the ways in which horse owners and riders, bookmakers and punters have been represented on British screen.

  • Horses in Translation af Sharon Wilsie Spar 21%
    - Essential Lessons in Horse Speak: Learn to "e;Listen"e; and "e;Talk"e; in Their Language
    af Sharon Wilsie

    With her landmark first book Horse Speak: The Equine–Human Translation Guide, trainer Sharon Wilsie upended conventional methods of human–equine communication (using words and ropes, for example) with her clear classification of the language horses use with each other (body, breath, and intent), as well as an unparalleled explanation of how we as humans can effectively mirror it. Learning to ';listen' and ';talk' to horses in their language, instead of expecting them to comprehend ours, is a milestone in the progressive philosophy of horsemanship, helping find positive solutions to behavior and training problems and ultimately leading to fewer misunderstandings between horses and humans. In her much–anticipated follow–up, Wilsie uses true stories to relate examples of ';problems' and how they were solved using Horse Speak. Her engaging narrative introduces readers to dozens of real–life scenarios from different barns, various disciplines, and riders and handlers with contrasting experiences and backgrounds. Wilsie highlights her Horse Speak process, the clues that point to the best course of action, and the steps she takes to connect with horses that have shut down, grown confused, or become sulky or aggressive for any number of reasons. The result is a book full of incredible insight and exciting possibilities.
