Susanne von Dietze, author of BALANCE IN MOVEMENT (now available again!) and RIDER & HORSE BACK TO BACK, is an internationally respected and highly sought-after riding coach and clinician. Her first experiences with CENTERED RIDING were possible because of the book’s worldwide distribution—it has been translated into 16 languages! Here she shares how she was introduced to the book and the effect it had on the trajectory of her career:

“I had a very special childhood, growing up in Germany with my father, an ex-cavalry officer, and my mother, a physiotherapist and athletics teacher. Both were riding instructors, as well. We always had horses and I learned how to ride before I learned how to walk.

“My parents started therapeutic riding in Germany, and both thought the riders seat was of prime importance for good riding. Longe lessons and seat corrections were a daily part of my training.

CENTERED RIDING by Sally Swift has been published in 16 languages.

CENTERED RIDING by Sally Swift has been published in 16 languages.

“My mother collected all the books she could find about the rider’s seat, and I have her First Edition of the German Translation of CENTERED RIDING. The pictures in this book have always been fascinating to me and helped me develop my own understanding and improve my teaching over the years. When I was asked by the German Federation (FN) to write a book about the rider’s seat (which became BALANCE IN MOVEMENT) I reread CENTERED RIDING and again was deeply inspired by Sally Swift.

“It was a very, very special honor for me to be invited to a NARHA (North American Riding for Handicapped Association) event in Boston in what I think it was 1999. There I had a presentation and a practical demonstration, and Sally Swift was giving a lecture, too. I will never forget how she was standing the whole time, supported on her little stick, and kept all of us busy with our full attention on her for over an hour in the aisleway of some stable! When she rested afterward, I was invited to meet her. She knew my book and had seen my presentation, and she congratulated me on what she thought was an important work. Her praise and acceptance of my work was one of the most important critiques in my life.

“Sally Swift has deeply affected me, not only with her fabulous concepts, but with her whole personality. In November 2015 I have the honor to be the Keynote Speaker at the Centered Riding Conference in the Netherlands, and will do my utmost to remember this great lady with all my respect.”

Everyone is gearing up for the biggest weekend in holiday shopping! Beginning with “Black Friday” (the notorious day after Thanksgiving that can make-or-break a retailer’s year), great sales and special events often extend into Saturday and Sunday, ensuring that visiting families and kids home from school have somewhere to go (and some way to spend their money!)

Two Trafalgar Square Books authors are doing their share by participating in special book signing events this Saturday, November 26–the “day after” Black Friday. Check it out:

ON THE EAST COAST

Dorie McCullough Lawson, wife of painter T. Allen Lawson and daughter of historian David McCullough, is reading her fabulous new children’s book TEX, discussing the story behind it, and signing books at Bunch of Grapes, 44 Main Street, Vineyard Haven, Massachusetts. She will be upstairs in Kid’s Corner beginning at 10:30 am.

TEX is the perfect picture book for your child, grandchild, niece or nephew, with wonderful color photographs, a story about imagination, work ethic, and the beauty of the American West, and a main character who goes to sleep at the end (very important!) Watch the video of one little boy “reading” TEX by clicking HERE.

AND OUT WEST

Kayla Starnes, the writer and photographer behind the new USTRC-endorsed book TEAM ROPING 101 will be signing books at the Hastings in the Texas horse-capital of Stephenville, 2900 West Washington Street, #10, from 3 to 6 pm.

TEAM ROPING 101 is all you need to know to get started in the hottest new sport for those who like riding horses, going out with the family, and winning great cash prizes. Endorsed by the USTRC and featuring tips from champion ropers Speed Williams and Rickey Green, as well as training tips and a foreword from Stephenville celebrity horseman Clinton Anderson, Kayla’s book is a surefire way to rope up some fun.
