  • Horse Training…from Both Sides, Now

    Horse Training…from Both Sides, Now

    Who didn’t learn it that way? One of the very first lesson we all absorb as tiny horse-crazy tots is to approach and handle the horse from the left side. I once went on a dude ride (no really, it’s true) and the four things that were explained to all the tourists in tennis shoes […]

  • This Is What Top Equestrians Are Thankful For

    In almost every book we publish, we invite our authors to include a page of acknowledgments; this is their chance to thank those who may have had a hand in their careers or the making of their books. While it isn’t every day that we look back through to see who they’ve thanked over the […]

  • Top 10 Lessons from Top Horse Trainers

  • Horses and the Happiness Factor

    There’s been something missing from the news in general of late (and if your life is anything like mine, you can’t seem to escape that constant flow of “what’s happening”…all day, every day, yesterday, today, tomorrow). The problem is, it seems the “what’s happening” is all pretty dark, pretty frightening, pretty fractious, pretty upsetting. If […]

  • For the First Time EVER in the US–A Clinic with the Founding Stars of Cavalia

    When Cavalia—the amazing equestrian-themed spectacular that has now toured North America for over a decade—first dazzled audiences in 2003, few people knew of Frédéric Pignon and Magali Delgado.

  • Take This Quick Self-Quiz About How You Dress to Ride Your Best

    There is a common analogy that compares a horse wearing a tight noseband or girth, or a poorly fitting saddle, to a person wearing a pair of shoes that are too small—perhaps trying to walk all day or dance all night in them. “But this analogy has been around a long time,” says Linda Tellington-Jones […]
