This Mother’s Day, Trafalgar Square Books wants to take the opportunity to give a nod of recognition to all the hard-working moms out there, and particularly to the ones who have provided the books and DVDs from which the rest of us have had the opportunity to learn. A number of our authors are professional riders, trainers, veterinarians, writers, photographers, and filmmakers, in ADDITION to being “Mom.” That’s the remarkable thing about these women…they find a way to balance careers, relationships, child-rearing, with their own hobbies and passions. We admire them, and we thank them.

We had hoped to feature a photo of each of our authors and writers who are also mothers, but the funny thing is, when we contacted many of them and asked for a picture to share with our readers this Mother’s Day, many responded with a, “I’m NEVER in the pictures!” or “I’m always the one TAKING the pictures!” or “I haven’t been in a picture with my kids since they were babies!”

So a call to all partners and relatives out there: THIS MOTHER’S DAY, TAKE PICTURES OF THE MOTHERS YOU KNOW WITH THEIR KIDS!

NATURALLY CURIOUS by Mary Holland won the National Outdoor Book Award in the Nature Guidebook Category!

I know this announcement doesn’t have much to do with horses, but I’m so darn proud of this book, I have to share the news: NATURALLY CURIOUS by Vermont naturalist Mary Holland won the National Outdoor Book Award in the Nature Guidebook Category. Here’s NOBA’s full review:

NATURALLY CURIOUS is a marvelous new nature guide. And quite naturally, it’s by Mary Holland, one of the East’s most seasoned naturalists. She’s also something of a Renaissance woman: educator, advocate, columnist, and photographer… What makes this guide stand out is the way it’s organized. Starting in March, with the first signs of spring, it covers the changes in the natural world, on a month to month basis. You can’t go wrong with this guidebook. it’s one that you’ll use over and over—naturally.”

You can order NATURALLY CURIOUS from TSB’s online craft and general bookstore (click HERE), where shipping in the US is always FREE.
