Ferg4615 promo

A cartoon horse named Fergus, that’s what.

“If Sgt. Reckless were alive today, she and Fergus would be the best of friends!” says Robin Hutton, author of the New York Times bestseller Sgt. Reckless: America’s War Horse. “Fergus brings a smile to my face every time I read his cartoon.”

“For many years I have heard people say, ‘If only they could talk,’ when it comes to horses,” says Australian horseman, poet, and entertainer Guy McLean. “Fergus is doing just that: sharing his everyday life and letting all of us know what’s really going on in the intricate minds of our beloved equine friends.”

Now Fergus the Horse, winner of over 300,000 Facebook hearts and quite easily identified as the most popular cartoon equine the world over (one of his posts has had over a million likes!), has a new book—THE ESSENTIAL FERGUS THE HORSE—and it’s available to order NOW from the TSB online bookstore, where shipping in the US is FREE.

“We’re going to go ahead and make our first Christmas recommendation,” proclaimed host Glenn the Geek on a recent episode of the Horse Radio Network’s “Horses in the Morning.” “If you’re looking for the book that any horsesperson will like, at any age…[THE ESSENTIAL FERGUS THE HORSE] will bring a lot of smiles.”

You can catch the full interview with Fergus’ human creator Jean Abernethy on “Horses in the Morning” Episode 1277, which first aired on October 14 (CLICK HERE). And be sure to watch for the November 2015 issue of Horse Illustrated magazine, which features a profile of Jean, her little cartoon horse, and their great big success.

And we’ll be sharing more information on upcoming book signings with Jean and Fergus at the Royal Winter Fair in Toronto and at the Equus Film Festival in New York City! Check back soon!

“How cool to have Fergus and his buddies corralled in one spot! I’ve enjoyed his escapades so much over the years. This book will be a great way to enjoy them again and share them with others.” —Christine Hamilton, Western Horseman Magazine

WH May Issue

TSB is thrilled to have Buck Brannaman, renowned horseman and 2013 Western Horseman Award winner, featured on the cover of the May 2013 issue of Western Horseman magazine! Be sure to pick up a copy of the May issue wherever quality equestrian or Western lifestyle magazines are sold, and check it out.

Inside, the feature article about Buck tells how he has positively influenced the horse world for more than 30 years, traveling almost constantly to give hands-on clinics, sharing his stories and insights in his books, and offering instruction in his DVDs. Everything Buck does is intended to promote a kinder, gentler way of working with horses.

Buck’s influence reached mainstream audiences through the award-winning 2011 documentary BUCK, which was directed by Cindy Meehl, who most recently released the instructional follow-up series to BUCK, seven DVDs entitled 7 CLINICS WITH BUCK BRANNAMAN, in conjunction with Trafalgar Square Books. (Cindy also directed the hit music video for Templeton Thompson’s song “When I Get That Pony Rode,” and recently signed on to a new film project called UNBRANDED.)

“At my clinics, I get everything from the backyard horse owner, to really good ranch cowboys, to Olympic show jumpers,” Buck says in May’s Western Horseman article. “My clinics are neutral ground, and that’s cool because then people are in an environment where they will learn something.”

Viewers can join Buck on “neutral ground” anytime with the 7 CLINICS WITH BUCK BRANNAMAN DVD series. The seven instructional DVDs feature over 10 hours of clinic footage filmed during the making of BUCK. They allow you to watch Buck work with riders and horses from all different backgrounds and of all different abilities; listen to their questions; see them try, fail, try again, and do better. Best of all, you can turn to Buck’s wisdom whenever you need it, and as many times as necessary, to become a better partner to your horse.

“The tone of 7 CLINICS WITH BUCK BRANNAMAN is undoubtedly one of learning and communicating with the horse,” says Western Horseman Assistant Editor Kate Bradley. “Followers of Brannaman’s style of horsemanship will recognize his methods and have the opportunity to watch him work with problem horses first-hand. Those new to Brannaman’s style, or who have seen his work only in the documentary BUCK, will be able to understand how he thinks about the horse…Brannaman’s message from the documentary rings true in the seven-disc package: Do better by the horse in order to do better in life.”

We’re back from a super-fun and really busy five-day stint at Equine Affaire in Springfield, Massachusetts. Thanks again to everyone who made sure to stop by and meet Cindy Meehl, director of the award-winning documentary BUCK and the new 7 CLINICS WITH BUCK BRANNAMAN DVD series!

As we approach Thanksgiving, it’s time to start thinking about holiday gifts for the horsepeople in your life. We featured two great ideas at EA, and they are still available on our website!

7 Clinics with Buck Brannaman the complete series makes a great gift set!

The complete series (all 7 discs and 10 hours) of 7 CLINICS WITH BUCK BRANNAMAN is available for $145 from the TSB online bookstore (CLICK HERE) where shipping in the US is always FREE.

“The tone of 7 CLINICS WITH BUCK BRANNAMAN is undoubtedly one of learning and communicating with the horse,” says the review in the November issue of Western Horseman. “Brannaman’s message from the documentary rings true in the seven-disc package: Do better by the horse in order to do better in life.”

Crown Prince and Crown Prince Challenged make a great gift set for the young horse lover in your life!

And, for all the young horse lovers you know, the first two books in the exciting new fiction series by Linda Snow McLoon, CROWN PRINCE and CROWN PRINCE CHALLENGED, are available for purchase together for $17.95 (CLICK HERE).

“I really enjoyed the characters, the story line, and the writing, and more than anything else, the horsemanship that is woven into Crown Prince and Crown Prince Challenged,” says Susan Harris, author of  the US Pony Club Manuals of Horsemanship; Horse Gaits, Balance and Movement; Anatomy in Motion DVDs; and Grooming to Win. “I found the characters (especially Sarah Wagner), the horses, and the problems they face, believable and interesting, and the setting (a good boarding and teaching barn) authentic in today’s horse world, right down to the Jack Russell terriers. The reader will learn a lot about horses, good riding and horsemanship through these novels, but it’s part of the story, not a ‘lesson.’ I enjoyed the first book so much that I went right on to the second, and now I’m hoping the author is working on the next one! I highly recommend these books!”

Don’t wait to start on your holiday shopping! Order now while these great gift sets are available!
