Grand prix rider and trainer Britta Schoeffmann was featured on the Horse Radio Network’s Stable Scoop Radio Show last week! Don’t miss this episode, hosted by Glenn the Geek and Helena Bee, who not only delve into the details of Britta’s book DRESSAGE TRAINING–CUSTOMIZED, but also provide a recommendation for a cool new smartphone app to make packing for horse-related trips easier and more organized.
Over the course of the interview, Helena and Britta examine the idea that all sizes, shapes, breeds, and genders of horses need to be dealt with differently in the course of training for any sport–not just dressage. One blanket policy, philosophy, or technique cannot be applied to every horse you ride or own, across the board. You must customize your position, your methods, and your goals so they are in sync with the abilities, the temperament, and the tendencies of the individual horse.
“This is one of my favorite training books of all time,” says host Helena Bee about DRESSAGE TRAINING–CUSTOMIZED. “It is one of the most informative books on getting from Point A to Point B with your horse that I’ve come across.”
Helena and Glenn are a hoot and a blast–they know horses and have a sense of humor and terrific guests. If you haven’t made the Horse Radio Network a regular stop in your online travels, DO!

The London Book Fair–this year running from April 11-13–is the global marketplace for rights negotiation and the sale and distribution of content across print, audio, TV, film, and digital channels.It takes place every spring in the world’s premier publishing capital, London, England, and Trafalgar Square Books always attends with the intent to promote its “stable” of top equestrian authors to foreign publishers from around the globe. (TSB also attends the Frankfurt Book Fair, held in the fall in Frankfurt, Germany, every year.)
We take great pride in the books we publish at TSB, and think our authors share the best horse-related material in the most innovative ways, which means maybe equestrians in other countries would benefit from having the books available in their native languages. Many of our books are available in multiple languages and in dozens of countries–for example, CENTERED RIDING by Sally Swift has been translated into 15 different languages and has sold over 800,000 copies worldwide.
Rights sales such as these are made possible by sending a TSB representative to the London and Frankfurt Book Fairs, where we can engage other publishers in person and encourage them to check out our authors, even before their books are published in English.
International book fairs also give us the opportunity to peruse what riders and trainers in other countries are doing, and often we find a terrific book that we know would benefit English-speaking equestrians. In these cases, we arrange for translation of the work, and publish it under the TSB imprint. Bestsellers of books originally published in another language include TUG OF WAR by Dr. Gerd Heuschmann and DRESSAGE SCHOOL by Britta Schoeffmann.
We look forward to continuing to be part of the effort to share the very best in horse-related books and DVDs worldwide!
