  • “I hear her in my mind when I ride!” A Tribute to Jane Savoie from Lynn Palm

    “I hear her in my mind when I ride!” A Tribute to Jane Savoie from Lynn Palm

    One of our favorite things at TSB is when our amazing and inspiring authors connect. What better than to see the people we know, admire, learn from, and care about find common ground in their love for the horse? That’s what happened with our friend and author, Jane Savoie, who we lost to cancer in […]

    The TSB 2021 Horse Books & Videos Catalog is now available to download (see below link) or request by mail from our website (click here for a print copy). Our cover model this year is the stunning Eddie–some of you have already heard his amazing story, but in honor of Valentine’s Day, we wanted to […]

    Riders Must Have “the Will”

    In her new book, HOW TWO MINDS MEET: THE MENTAL DYNAMICS OF DRESSAGE, Beth Baumert explains how to optimize the use of your “thinking mind” in order to become a better learner in the saddle and provides techniques for maximizing mental and emotional harmony with your horse. Here she tells us why we need to […]

    TSB Author Cathy Woods on Yoga, Riding in the Smoky Mountains, and Finding the “Super Chill”

    It is always so interesting what we bring to our horse lives in terms of experience. Our pursuits or interactions with the world outside the barn are destined to impact those inside it. Consider what an argument with a colleague can mean to your lesson later that day, or how traffic can add tension to […]

  • Our Friend Jane Savoie

    Our Friend Jane Savoie

    I first met Jane Savoie when I was 19. I was home from college and looking for a horse job to counter the nights I spent waitressing. Jane needed a groom. She had Eastwood, aka “Woody,” then–a big chestnut with lots of chrome. It was a long time ago but certain moments are still incredibly […]

  • 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 […]

  • 3 New Horse Books That Will Make Great Gifts for ANY Horse Lover

    3 New Horse Books That Will Make Great Gifts for ANY Horse Lover

    It’s true…doing what we do means we get to read A LOT of horse books. Books for different disciplines, different breeds, different techniques and modalities. There definitely is a book out there for just about everyone. What is harder is to find horse books for ANYone…that is, books with crossover appeal or applicability. But these […]

  • Early Morning Writing, COVID Vetting, and a Vomiting Princess: 24 Hours with Dr. Stacie Boswell

    Early Morning Writing, COVID Vetting, and a Vomiting Princess: 24 Hours with Dr. Stacie Boswell

    One of the things we have been incredibly thankful for during this strange year is the contact we have been able to maintain, albeit virtually, with the TSB authors with whom we are so lucky to work. But in the midst of editorial, production, or the initial marketing push for a new book, we don’t […]

  • “Did you say jumping…no stirrups?” “Yes,” says Anne Kursinski

    “Did you say jumping…no stirrups?” “Yes,” says Anne Kursinski

    There are many reasons November is my most unfavorite month of the year. In Vermont, it means needing a flashlight to find the car when I get out of work. It means cold but no snow to play in. It means short days but just as much to do. In our horsey world, this time […]
