  • Sorteper af Anna Sewell
    af Anna Sewell

    "Da jeg blev fire år gammel, kom godsejer Gordon for at se på mig. Han undersøgte mine øjne og mine tænder og følte hele vejen ned på mine ben. Derefter måtte jeg gå, trave og galopere foran ham. Han så ud til at kunne lide mig og sagde: "Når den er blevet trænet, vil den klare sig fint."Min ejer sagde, han selv ville ride mig til, da han ikke ønskede, jeg skulle blive skræmt eller komme til skade. Og han spildte ingen tid. Næste dag begyndte han."I Anna Sewells klassiker fortæller hesten Sorteper om sit liv i England i 1820‘erne. Sorteper oplever både at bo hos mennesker, der holder af ham og passer på ham, men han prøver også, hvordan det er at have ejere, der ikke tager sig ordentligt af deres heste. Historien satte som en af de første bøger et tiltrængt fokus på dyrevelfærd.Anna Sewell (1820-1878) var en engelsk forfatter og kvinden bag en af de bedst sælgende bøger nogensinde "Black Beauty", der på dansk både er udkommet under originaltitlen og som "Sorteper". "Sorteper" var oprindelig skrevet som et værk til mennesker, der arbejdede med heste, og bogen lægger i høj grad vægt på dyrevelfærd og respekten for både mennesker og dyr. Anna Sewell skrev bogen, mens hun var sengeliggende efter længere tids sygdom, og hun døde kun fem måneder efter bogens udgivelse. Selvom Anna Sewell ikke oprindeligt skrev "Sorteper" til et børnepublikum, regnes bogen i dag som en klassiker inden for børne- og ungdomslitteraturen.

    Few regions possess so many and mainly complete Roman bridles as do the Vesuvian sites. Singular find conditions permit both comprehensive antiquarian-historian analyses of their production, functionality, and everyday use and new approaches to their typology and chronology. The 103 catalogued specimens belong to four types of bronze headstalls, namely metallic noseband, bitless metal bridle ("e;hackamore"e;), multipartite metallic bridle ("e;metallic halter"e;), and muzzle as well as two types of bits, namely snaffle bit with circular cheekpieces and curb bit. All of them occurred in more or less numerous variants of local or provincial origin. Special attention is paid to the reconstruction of application methods and combinations of types as well as the replica of a snaffle bit with circular cheekpieces. Bitless metal bridles followed Greek models, multipartite metallic bridles Celtiberian ones and, in combination with Thracian or Italian curb bits, formed typical military bridles. All Campanian finds came from civilian contexts such as luxury villae, villae rusticae, urban houses, and workshops. Thanks to find circumstances they can be attributed to draught animals, beasts of burden or mounts (horse, donkey, mule) which also showed up in stables and skeletal remains.

  • Polo Life af S Onderdonk Spar 19%
    - Horses, Sport, 10 and Zen
    af S Onderdonk & A Snow

    Polo Life: Horses, Sport, 10 and Zen delves into the world of high goal polo through the uniquely situated lenses of former 10-goaler Adam Snow and his wife and veterinarian, Shelley Onderdonk. Together their voices provide an unprecedented level of access into the horse and human dynamics that make the sport tick, their passion, respect and commitment for the sport and each other shine through each page. Less polo manual than human interest story, their chapters cover a broad range of topics: there is a horse so good she single-handedly altered the trajectory of Adams career; a farm named after the city where this couple met in college; a country and polo culture that shaped Adam as a player...and where they had luggage stolen more than once; and a serendipitous meeting with a sports psychologist that turned Adams career around. Adam recounts his childhood obsession with ball sports; Shelley hers with horses. Together, they reveal how sports psychology has been integral to Adams success, tell behind-the-scenes stories about teammates, grooms and trainers, celebrate their legendary equine partners, and provide an uncensored glimpse into the glamorous international component of the sport from Buenos Aires to Bandar Seri Begawan. The dynamics of maintaining a healthy marriage and family within the framework of a professional athletes career are also fundamental to Adam and Shelleys polo life. Their prose--by turns humble, humorous, and inspirational--showcases the sports enduring appeal.

    af Charlotte Dujardin

    'Refreshingly honest [...] a highly enjoyable, fascinating read.' Horse and Hound"e;To ride into that arena, next to a sea of British flags and hear the roar of clapping and cheering, was so exciting. It's a sound I will never, ever forget."e;Charlotte Dujardin and her charismatic horse Valegro burst onto the international sports scene with their record-breaking performance at the London, 2012 Olympics. The world was captivated by the young woman with the dazzling smile and her dancing horse.But no one quite knew what it took to get there, nor how hard the path to success would be until now. Dujardin began riding horses at the age of two, but dressage was firmly the domain of the wealthy, not the life of a girl from a middle-class family. Her parents sacrificed all and with a undeterred focus, Charlotte left school at 16 to follow her dream. When she was invited to be a groom for the British Olympian Carl Hester, she began to ride Valegro, a dark bay gelding and an unbreakable bond was formed. This is their incredible story.

  • Equestrian Cultures in Global and Local Contexts
     

    This edited volume demonstrates the broader socio-cultural context for individual human-horse relations and equestrian practices by documenting the international value of equines; socially, culturally, as subjects of academic study and as drivers of public policy. It broadens our understanding of the importance of horses to humans by providing case studies from an unprecedented diversity of cultures. The volume is grounded in the contention that the changing status of equines reveals - and moves us to reflect on - important material and symbolic societal transformations ushered in by (post)modernity which affect local and global contexts alike.Through a detailed consideration of the social relations and cultural dimensions of equestrian practices across several continents, this volume provides readers with an understanding of the ways in which interactions with horses provide global connectivity with localized identities, and vice versa. It further discusses new frontiers in the research on and practice of equestrianism, framed against global megatrends and local micro-trends.

  • Advanced Dressage Training af Angela Niemeyer Eastwood

    af Angela Niemeyer Eastwood

    In Advanced Dressage Training, Grand Prix rider/trainer Angela Niemeyer Eastwood outlines the hows and whys of advanced training in a practical, logical fashion, with the aim of helping you to create harmonious partnerships with your horses. Dressage has moved beyond the basics of just riding and training a horse, and now encompasses many complementary disciplines, including psychology. This has always been part of the most successful athletes' repertoires and is now acknowledged as being one of the main contributory factors to excellence in any sport. Technical skills need to go hand in hand with mental commitment, discipline, dedication and resilience. Mindsets can be changed - what is needed is knowledge, support, imagination and perseverance. This book introduces the idea that aids are just that: they let the horse know what the rider wants. When this is understood, the horse should be allowed to do whatever has been asked of him - alone and unaided - until something else is required or the horse needs a reminder. The pursuit of excellence - not perfection - is what dressage is all about. Advanced Dressage Training offers advice and encouragement towards the improvement and development of you and your horse as an advanced partnership, taking you towards excellence in the process. This book will be of great interest to dressage riders and trainers and dressage professionals, and is superbly illustrated with 300 colour photographs.

  • Healing Power of Horses af Wendy Beth Baker Spar 21%
    - Lessons from the Lakota Indians
    af Wendy Beth Baker

    Wendy Beth Bakers The Healing Power of Horses is devoted to the worlds greatest horsepeople, the Oglala Lakota Indians of Pine Ridge, South Dakota. She begins the book by sharing the philosophy of these great horse-loving people: There are those who feel the sun rises and sets on the back of a horse, and no matter what obstacles life sets in their way, they never dismount. The spirit and fortitude of the Lakota Indians inform Bakers words as she describes how this once-nomadic tribe came to view the horse as sacred and assigned it great significance in their culture, religion, and lifestyle. The Indians who live on the Pine Ridge Reservation have grown spiritually and as a community through their relationship with their horses, and it is through this connection to the natural world that the power of healing and ultimately, health, flows.With photography by Hope Vinitsky, The Healing Power of Horses tells the individual stories of over a dozen Lakota Indians and how horses have affected each of their lives. Baker was able to interview each of these inspiring individuals for inclusion in this book. The empowering stories told come from Wayne Waters, Marlin Moon Weston, Eugenio White Hawk, Wendell Yellow Bull, Aldeen Twiss, Phillip Jumping Eagle and Billy, Dale Vocu, Emma and Shelly Waters, Wilmer Mesteth, Vernell White Thunder, Pat Heathershaw, Lester Waters, and the Carlows. While the stories of each of these exceptional men and women are different, the common denominator in each is the horses transformative power to heal their minds, spirits, and bodies. These are stories of artists, athletes, and common noble folk, all of whom have struggled to overcome lifes many obstacles to thrive and become better people.The authors intention in this book, as she describes in the final section The Future of the Lakota Horsepeople, is to have her readers gain a better understanding of horses in Lakota culture while at the same time affording some of the Lakota people an opportunity to reconnect with their cultural identity. In reading this book, it is clear that the Lakota people have preserved the emotional power of their ancient culture and strength as a people by maintaining their connection to horses, animals that they deeply love. Fiercely loyal to the United States, the Lakota horsepeople are a strong, proud, and brave community who have much to teach all people about life and the pursuit of healing.
