The sport of Endurance Riding was established in the UK in the 1960's and was controlled by various organisations until Endurance Great Britain was created in 2001 to govern the sport, from the grass route leisure rider to the international teams. There has not been a book published in the UK covering endurance since 1999 and the author, Karen David, wished to address this. The book is aimed at all levels of endurance rider from the first timer to the seasoned campaigner, with encouragement and advice given throughout. The chapters cover: a history of the sport up to the birth of Endurance Great Britain; how endurance is organised and how to progress through the various levels; selecting a suitable horse; how to begin competing; how to ride a successful endurance ride; feeding and nutrition; alternative therapies; shoeing; training; transporting the horse incorporating UK Legislation; equipment; competing and the support team necessary to help the combination achieve their potential.

A practical guide to developing the classical seat for all serious horsemen and women Comprehensive advice on the training of the horse from earliest handling as a foal, through basic training and on to jumping and dressage A Beginners guide to Horse Riding is intended as a companion volume to the author's popular The Horse Owner's Handbook. It is a practical guide to developing the classical seat and, consequently, the accepted training and riding of the horse by the use of the aids which have been developed since academic riding was first written about, three hundred years before Christ. It covers broadly the psychology and physiology of the horse at a level required by all serious horsemen and women. Without this elementary knowledge a thorough understanding of the horse and his needs cannot be achieved. The Horse Rider's Handbook takes the reader through the training of the horse from his earliest handling as a foal, through his basic training and on to jumping and dressage. The work goes on to explain the requirements of competition dressage, show jumping and cross country riding, together with some guidance on how these equestrian disciplines may be approached in order to stand a fair chance of success. Any rider who takes his or her discipline seriously will benefit from the advice given in this excellent handbook."

Discover why you have pain and tension, learn how they affect your horse and riding, and master techniques for treating and preventing pain and injury in the future. Pain-Free Horse Riding is the first book to combine exercises for horseback riders to increase strength and flexibility and improve riding and address the pain they suffer from and how to relieve it. Horse rider and Myofascial Release therapist Nikki Robinson offers realistic ways to improve common conditions--back and neck pain, tendonitis, fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, joint pain and stiffness, and repetitive strain injury--without giving up the activity you love. The book provides an introduction to fascia, covers how your body reacts to injury, and addresses common symptoms such as pain, tension, and inflammation. A key chapter focuses specifically on riding posture--the position of your head, shoulders, back, buttocks, and legs--including exercises to solve your riding problems with myofascial techniques. Also included are personal stories from riders who have had success with these methods. The format of the book allows readers to start at the beginning and read all the way through or to go straight to the sections that address their particular condition. There are cross-references throughout to direct readers where to find additional information if they are interested.

Gender and Equestrian Sport

This volume brings together studies from various disciplines of the social sciences and humanities ( anthropology, sociology, cultural studies, history and literary theory) that shed light on the equestrian world as a historically gendered and highly dynamic field of contemporary sport and culture. From high level international dressage and jumping, polo and the turf, to the rodeo world of the Americas and popular forms of equestrian sport and culture, we are introduced to a range of issues that are played out at local and global, national and international levels. Students and scholars of gender, culture and sport will find much of interest in this original look at contemporary issues such as “engendered” (women’s and men’s) identities/subjectivities as equestrians, representations of girls, horses and the world of adventure in juvenile fiction; the current “feminization” of particular equestrian activities (and where boys and men stand in relation to this); how broad forms of social inequality and stratification play themselves out within gendered equestrian contexts; men and women and their relation to horses within the framework of current discussions on the relation of animals to humans (which may include not only love and care, but also exploitation and violence), among others. Singular contributions show how equestrian activities contribute to historical and current constructions of embodied “femininities” and “masculinities”, reflecting a world that has been moving “beyond the binaries” while continuing to be enmeshed in their persistent and contradictory legacy. ​

Have you forgotten what winning with your horse feels like? Do you dream of having a deep beautiful relationship with your horse? Do you wish you could ride fearlessly again? Did you have a fall or traumatic event that has left you afraid to ride? Are you tired of people asking you, "Why don't you ride your horse?", "Why aren't you winning your events anymore?" or even worse, do people tell you to sell your horse because you're not riding him/her? If you are answering yes to these questions then Riding Scared is your answer. There is a way to address your fears that do not include more training for your already trained horse or pushing yourself to just get back on and get over it. Anyone who tells you that has never been where you are. If you want to be comfortable in your saddle and not terrified every time your horse sneezes or perks up his ears you CAN do it! There is no reason to rush, there is no reason to sell your horse and there is no reason to feel ashamed or guilty. You have everything you need within you to beat your fears and ride confidently or compete successfully again. Let's get collected! In this book you'll discover a nine-step program on: - How to identify the fears holding you back and how those fears got there. - How to keep those fears out of your way for good and the tools you use to combat them. - How to forgive yourself and let go of feeling ashamed or guilty. - How to use your God-given gifts to find a deeper connection to yourself and your horse. - How to change your mindset to release your fears around your horse, riding, and competing. - How to use your intuition, visualize your perfect ride and use nature to your advantage. Miranda Velasquez is very familiar with the fears associated with getting back on your horse after a traumatic event. She has been confidently back in the saddle after using these methods herself for the last ten years. She has designed this book to be like a combo of going to a Buck Brannaman or Karen Rohlf clinic mixed with Gabrielle Bernstein's book "The Universe Has Your Back".
