TSB Mothers Day

 

We never forget our mothers’ advice…

Thank you to all the mothers out there who read us horse stories,

held ponies in the dust, heat, chill, and rain,

and still remind us to lift our feet up when we trot.

Happy Mother’s Day from Trafalgar Square Books.

Tribuna Equestre is an online television channel dedicated to all things equestrian in South America. The “Masters Series” features prominent riding masters, including Dominique Barbier, who co-authored MEDITATION FOR TWO with photographer and writer Keron Psillas. The episode featuring Dominique Barbier was filmed in Cotia, near Sao Paulo, Brazil. You can see the introductory interview with Dominique, where he discusses his passion for keeping equestrian art alive and promoting nonviolent methods of training dressage horses throughout the world, as well as his book MEDITATION FOR TWO, in the video clip below (the interview begins about two minutes in and is subtitled).

Keron was so generous as to share some of the wonderful photos she captured during their day filming the episode. “We always have fun playing in the shadows at the end of the day!” she says. Watch for Keron’s article on revered dressage master Luis Valenca in the September 2012 issue of Dressage Today magazine, which hits newstands in early August.

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.”
