Fit to Ride in 9 Weeks
Regardless of discipline, level of expertise, training philosophy, body shape, or fitness level, all riders do better—in horse-related activities both on the ground and in the saddle—when they take care of their bodies and maintain their fitness in ways other than just riding. While riding is a great way to enjoy an active lifestyle, on its own it is not enough to condition and tone the body to the degree we need, and then the horse must make up the fitness gap in our physical partnership. If our reflexes are slow, if our bodies fatigue, if our position collapses, if tension patterns appear, then the horse suffers repetitive asymmetrical strain or develops compensatory movement habits.
Horse Movement – Structure, Function and Rehabilitation by Gail Williams & Lex Mckenna Hardback
Anatomy is often said to be boring, but nothing could be further from the truth. Anatomy, particularly functional anatomy, is a vital and dynamic subject, an appreciation of which leads not only to superior horse management and welfare, but also to a better understanding of the anatomical challenges associated with riding, training, overtraining, injury, and rehabilitation. Using Alexa McKenna’s fabulous illustrations, this book shows the correlation of the skeleton, muscular system and locomotion, providing a clear insight into the functional and dysfunctional horse.
It addresses the largely misunderstood concept of “perfect conformation” and looks at the effect of the rider and tack on the function of the horse, using cutting-edge diagnostic techniques such as thermal imaging and gait analysis.
Unrelenting George H Morris$55.00
Unrelenting George H Morris
If there is one name in the American equestrian story that everyone knows, it is George Morris.
His carefully chosen words are notoriously powerful. They can raise you up or cut you to the quick. His approval can be a rainmaker, his derision can end a career.
But as much as people know and respect (or, perhaps, fear) the public face of George Morris, he has lived, in other ways, a remarkably private life, keeping his own personal struggles with insecurity, with ambition, and with love behind closed doors. It is only now that he has chosen, in his own words, to share the totality of his life—the very public and the incredibly private—with the world. This engrossing autobiography, the real story of the godlike George Morris, beautifully demonstrates his ultimate humanity.
This engrossing autobiography is the real life story of the man.
