Phillip Dutton and the Dutton Eventing Team had a terrific Memorial Day Weekend at the Spring Virginia Horse Trials in Lexington, Virginia—congratulations to all!

And of course we are thrilled to announce that MODERN EVENTING WITH PHILLIP DUTTON, the new book by Phillip and his cowriter/photographer Amber Heintzberger, is now available! You can download a free sample chapter and order your copy from the TSB online bookstore when you CLICK HERE.

“Our goal as event riders is to excel at all three phases,” says Phillip. “This requires a lot of training and knowledge, but successfully completing an event at any level can be a very rewarding challenge. I hope to help give you the tools to meet these challenges and have fun in the process!”

Phillip stole a few minutes off a horse to personally announce his book! Check it out:


“A must buy!” —Jim Wofford, Eventing Legend

“This book reflects on a truly amazing horseman.” —Wayne Roycroft, Australian Olympic Medalist and Team Coach

“Phillip Dutton has had an enormous impact on producing the best event riders in America, without question. If you look at the top 50 riders in this country at any point in the last ten years, the majority of them have been influenced by the greatest trainer this country has ever seen.” —Boyd Martin, US Eventing Team Member

Trafalgar Square Books is thrilled to have two new books by two amazing contributors to the equestrian world featured in the May 2013 issues of Dressage Today and Practical Horseman magazines.

Check out the feature excerpt from Linda Tellington-Jones’ new book DRESSAGE WITH MIND, BODY & SOUL in DT. Linda explains some of her training revelations, insights concerning horse behavior, and fresh ways of looking at the Classical Training Scale.

“Foremost in Linda’s technique is the idea of trust,” says Ingrid Klimke in her foreword for DRESSAGE WITH MIND, BODY & SOUL, “inspiring trust in the horse, nurturing that trust, and helping it evolve into a base so strong that your riding partnership can withstand all manner of challenges from without and within.”

You can download a free excerpt from Linda’s new book from the TSB online bookstore (CLICK HERE), and be sure to pick up a copy of the May issue of Dressage Today!

Practical Horseman’s special eventing issue sports a great photo of TSB author Phillip Dutton on the cover, and inside you’ll find an excerpt from the forthcoming book MODERN EVENTING WITH PHILLIP DUTTON. A limited number of pre-release copies of Phillip’s new book will be available at Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event (CLICK HERE to read more about this).

“For a very quiet and humble person, Phillip Dutton has had an enormous impact on producing the best event riders in America, without question,” says US Eventing Team member Boyd Martin in his introduction to MODERN EVENTING WITH PHILLIP DUTTON. “If you look at the top 50 riders in this country at any point in the last ten years, the majority of them have been influenced by the greatest trainer this country has ever seen. No one has matched in American history the number of advanced horses produced by Phillip and no one has come close to his record of USEA Rider of the Year twelve times.”

You can download an additional excerpt from MODERN EVENTING WITH PHILLIP DUTTON from the TSB online bookstore (CLICK HERE).

TSB is proud of its authors and their fabulous new features in these two top equestrian magazines. Pick up your copies of DT and PH wherever quality magazines are sold.

Six horses died in the fire that ravaged eventer Boyd Martin's barn at True Prospect Farm early this morning.

We were all stunned and incredibly saddened when we heard that early this morning, a fire destroyed the barn Boyd Martin rented from Phillip Dutton Eventing at True Prospect Farm. Boyd lost six horses from his program in the fire; four others are at the University of Pennsylvania’s New Bolton Center undergoing treatment. We applaud the heroic efforts of Boyd’s groom and two others who put themselves in harm’s way in their effort to rescue as many of the horses as possible. Our thoughts are with Boyd and Silva Martin, Phillip Dutton, and all the owners and riders who may have lost an eventing partner, and a friend, in this tragedy.

Trafalgar Square Books will donate 15% of all online sales at http://www.horseandriderbooks.com in the week ahead to the relief fund set up to help everyone at Windurra LLC and True Prospect Farm, as well as the owners and riders who have been impacted. In addition, TSB and Denny Emerson, author of HOW GOOD RIDERS GET GOOD, will donate a portion of the proceeds from the book sale and signing event to be held this Saturday, June 4, 2011, at the June Horse Trials at the Green Mountain Horse Association in South Woodstock, Vermont. The book signing event will begin around 5:30 pm, at the conclusion of stadium.

You can donate directly to the relief fund by visiting Boyd and Silva’s blog.
