    The Best Horse Books of 2021

    If you have ever been involved in the publication of a book, then you know that while there may be a clear beginning–that moment when the inspiration found you or you actually sat down and started typing–there is no real end. Once through the various phases of gestation and birth (editing, re-editing, layout, proofreading, indexing, […]

  • Celebrating Our Local Vermont Bookstores for Independent Bookstore Day

    Celebrating Our Local Vermont Bookstores for Independent Bookstore Day

    Tomorrow, Saturday, April 24, 2021, is Independent Bookstore Day, a day to celebrate the small but mighty independent bookstore–your local source for books, events, and most importantly, community! Indie bookstores suffered terribly over the past year as lockdowns and changes in purchasing habits during the pandemic devastated their bottom lines. As an independent book publisher, […]

  • Looking for the New Horse…Who Could Never Replace the Old One

    Looking for the New Horse…Who Could Never Replace the Old One

    We are a small, in-house staff at TSB, and being horse people makes the job of publishing equestrian books a highly personal pursuit. The cool thing is, many of the freelancers we work with are “horsey,” too. Andrea Jones has been indexing for us for many years. If you buy TSB books, chances are, you’ve […]

  • What Got Us Through 2020

    What Got Us Through 2020

    What saved us in 2020? We had books to publish. The ever-present routine that is our (often overwhelming) publication schedule actually kept us sane: In March, while some titles idled at printers when the world shut down, we were deep in editorial for books that would (hopefully) come out later in the year, designing covers […]

  • We’re Grateful This Holiday Season

    We’re Grateful This Holiday Season

    The snow has piled high outside the TSB offices in Vermont, and we are feeling grateful for many things. In a year that challenged us all in ways few of us ever expected, we are grateful to all the readers, riders, and horse lovers who have supported our hard-working authors and our small company’s mission […]

  • The Olympics Are Postponed, But Your Dreams Don’t Have to Be

    The Olympics Are Postponed, But Your Dreams Don’t Have to Be

    I love watching the Olympics—winter and summer. Pick a sport and I’m into it, willing to admire the athletes, agonize over the losses, celebrate the successes, and even puzzle over the “rules of the game” when it comes to contests unfamiliar to me. I grew up an athlete, and I can identify with the ambition, […]

  • The Decade in Horse Books

    The Decade in Horse Books

    Here we are on the cusp of not only a new year but a whole new decade. This gives us a chance to look back across the last 10 years and consider what we’ve done with our time… Here at TSB, we’ve published a whole lotta horse books. We are so lucky to be able […]

  • Busy Rider? Find Yourself a “Clinic in the Cloud”

    I’m guessing I’m like a lot of you–a job, a family, a gym I try to frequent, friends I try to see, books I try to read, promises I try to keep, and oh yeah…horses. Needless to say, the above list is not compiled in order of preference. So how, when one is so dang […]

    The Best Horse Books & DVDs of 2018

    W.O.W. The year is almost over. It always hits as a touch unbelievable. And yet here we are, a few days from 2019. It’s cold outside, with enough white stuff to validate the Vermont address. The Prosecco is chilling in anticipation of the celebration ahead. We have some truly exciting projects in the works with […]
