TSB author Betsy Steiner, winner of the Premier Equestrian Sportsmanship Award

International dressage rider and trainer Betsy Steiner, author of the best-selling book A GYMNASTIC RIDING SYSTEM USING MIND, BODY, AND SPIRIT, won the Premier Sportsmanship Award while competing Joli Burrell’s Fino at the Palm Beach Dressage Derby at White Fences in Wellington, Florida, in early March.

The Premier Sportsmanship Award, sponsored by Premier Equestrian (a leading supplier of dressage arenas, jumps, arena footing, and stable accessories) is awarded to a rider who displays a high level of sportsmanship during competition.

Steiner says the secret to each and every ride is the simple fact that she loves her horses and she loves competing.”I love all the horses I compete, and Fino just happens to be one of the best,” she shared with her trademark warmth.

When first released, Steiner’s book introduced the dressage world to her system of Pilates for equestrians (Equilates) while providing riders with a clear training system that intertwines facets of mind, body, and spirit (of both horse and rider) with the Classical Training Pyramid.

Dr. Nancy Kay’s one-of-a-kind book on how to be a top-notch medical advocate for your dog has amassed a number of awards, glowing reviews, and enthusiastic testimonials. Recently, Speaking for Spot won BIG at the 2009 Dog Writers Association of America Contest, honored with both the Eukanuba Canine Health Award for the publication that best promotes health and well-being of dogs, and the Maxwell Prize for best blog! (On a personal note, Dr. Kay’s blog IS one of the best I’ve seen. As a dog owner, I read it regularly as I always learn something new about my pup’s health and how to discuss matters with his vet in an informed and rational manner–difficult when there’s love and money involved!) If you want to get a feel for Dr. Kay’s style and the matters she takes to heart, listen to her appearance on NPR’s Fresh Air with Terry Gross.
