As we prepare for the Run for the Roses tomorrow, May 2, 2015, many are considering which horse to choose as the next great-hearted champion of the historic Churchill Downs. One very familiar to this subject is Kerry Thomas, creator of the Thomas Herding Technique and co-author of HORSE PROFILING with Calvin Carter. Kerry has consistently named top finishers in the Derby using his technique of “profiling” the field and determining each horse’s “emotional conformation.”

Kerry has developed what he calls the “P-Type” grading system, which assigns letter grades according to a horse’s instinctual tendencies (basic and acquired), and his ability to handle environmental stimuli while in motion. This has become a valuable means for analyzing racing potential for obvious reasons, but it also resonates in other equine sports, as it can help you the best methods of choosing a discipline or training a particular horse (see more about this concept in HORSE PROFILING).

John Strassburger, Performance Editor of Horse Journal, says: “[HORSE PROFILING] will help you unravel your equine athlete’s personality and needs, so you can evaluate your horse’s ’emotional conformation,’ which the author Kerry Thomas calls the real indicator of a horse’s ability…no question as to why his work has been called ‘groundbreaking.'”

HORSE PROFILING is available from the TSB online bookstore, where shipping in the US is FREE.

Here at TSB, we are great fans of Dr. Joyce Harman’s books and DVDs on English and Western saddle-fit. We feel that more conscientious attention to saddle fitting by all riders, regardless of riding level or discipline, would ensure happier, healthier, better performing horses the world over.

So we are especially thrilled to see the new review of Dr. Harman’s first book THE HORSE’S PAIN-FREE BACK AND SADDLE-FIT BOOK in the September 2012 issue of Horse Journal. Check out this excerpt from the review:

“Some books are classics that should be on every rider’s book shelf. This book is one of them…Like George Morris’s classic Hunter Seat Equitation for hunter/jumper riders, Dr. Harman’s book is the Bible for saddle fit.”

You can read the entire review in the September 2012 issue of Horse Journal, and you can order THE HORSE’S PAIN-FREE BACK AND SADDLE-FIT BOOK, as well as Dr. Harman’s other saddle-fitting book and DVDs, at the TSB online bookstore, where shipping in the US is always FREE.

Equisearch.com recommended TSB book MEDITATION FOR TWO in its Horse Journal review this week.

Check out Horse Journal Editor-in-Chief Cindy Foley’s review of MEDITATION FOR TWO by Dominique Barbier and Keron Psillas on Equisearch.com this week!

“I finished [the book] with a renewed sense of partnership with my horse,” writes Cindy. “I learned that [my horse] and I are exactly the same! I felt a deeper understanding into what it must be like from her perspective, and I felt a stronger connection—one that I was able to take into the saddle the very next day…If you’re searching for answers and can’t get them from the equitation and training lessons we’ve all had drilled into us, or if you have a particularly challenging horse and are open to new approaches, you might find an answer in this book.”

Order MEDITATION FOR TWO from HorseandRiderBooks.com by December 18 and you can still get it in time for Christmas!
