Being able to find joy in someone else’s joy is the secret of happiness. This is why there are so many happy horse lovers! If you keep, handle, and train horses according to their nature, and approach them with open eyes and ears as well as an open heart, they communicate very clearly that they feel happy. From the ten-year-old girl to the riding master, they all have something in common: the happiness they are given by these wonderful animals. In this thoughtful and touching book, professional horse photographer Christiane Slawik gathers her own thoughts, and those of her horse-loving friends, about the happiness they feel and share when they are with horses. Slawik’s gorgeous photography showcases the beauty, power, and sensitivity of horses, making this a moving tribute to their many gifts.

Twelve-year-old Lucky Prescott craves adventure, but as a young lady of society she's only been allowed to experience adventure through books. That is, until one fateful day when Lucky, her father, and her aunt leave their neat-and-tidy city life and travel to their new home out west-the Wild West. At first Lucky is excited, but during the long train ride to her new hometown of Miradero, she begins to worry. What if she doesn't make any new friends? Everyone in the West rides horses, but she's never been allowed to even sit on one. How can she possibly fit in? Anxious about the future, Lucky looks out the train window and sees a majestic wild stallion. When their eyes meet, she senses a connection. But when the stallion is caught by wranglers, Lucky's heart breaks. And when she next sees the stallion, he's tied to a post, refusing to be "broken in." Spirit Riding Free: The Adventure Begins is the story of a girl and a wild horse, equally out of place in a strange, new world, but equally fierce and brave. With each other to lean on, will these two free spirits be able to find a home together? DreamWorks Spirit Riding Free © 2017 DreamWorks Animation LLC. All Rights Reserved.

Learn how to sit, stay, and roll over with this fully illustrated, “delightful” guide to yoga starring man’s best friend (Shutterbug magazine). Inspired by a friend’s mastiff who would imitate his master’s morning yoga routine, photographer Dan Borris created Yoga Dogs, a full-color collection of forty-five different dogs and puppies doing human yoga poses. Don’t worry: No animals were harmed during the making of these images; their extreme flexibility is the result of clever digital trickery. The curious, humorous, and distinctly original pictures are paired with useful information about the poses, as well as some funny canine meditations. “A fresh and highly entertaining visual treat,” Yoga Dogs is perfect for any yogi of the two or four-legged variety (Shutterbug magazine).

Catching a horse at exactly the right moment, in precisely the right environment, is a challenge, but Horse Photography offers the answers. Walker covers technical details such as camera and lens selection, background and lighting, and the book offers more: Walker’s own perspective as a horsewoman. Her explanation of the horse’s gaits, for example, will open every photographer’s eyes to the most beautiful moments of a horse in motion, and yield finer, more powerful results. Readers will also benefit from Walker’s insights into “horse psychology” and how the horse as a prey animal reacts to equipment, location, even separation from the herd. Outstanding example images by Walker offer inspiration while the clear text explains the technical details; together they create a resource any amateur photographer will come to rely on. Carol Walker is dedicated to helping the amateur photographer master both subject and technique. In addition to Horse Photography: The Dynamic Guide for Horse Lovers, Walker offers weekly tips via her blog. She also is available to teach a three-hour, hands-on horse photography workshop, covering basic techniques for getting consistent, positive results; the class works with equine models in halter, under saddle and liberty situations, with plenty of time for questions and plenty of useful answers.

THE SUNDAY TIMES HISTORY BOOK OF THE YEAR 2017 'A beautiful and thoughtful exploration of the role of the horse in creating our world' James Rebanks 'Scintillating, exhilarating ... you have never read a book like it ... a new way of considering history' Observer The relationship between horses and humans is an ancient, profound and complex one. For millennia horses provided the strength and speed that humans lacked. How we travelled, farmed and fought was dictated by the needs of this extraordinary animal. And then, suddenly, in the 20th century the links were broken and the millions of horses that shared our existence almost vanished, eking out a marginal existence on race-tracks and pony clubs. Farewell to the Horse is an engaging, brilliantly written and moving discussion of what horses once meant to us. Cities, farmland, entire industries were once shaped as much by the needs of horses as humans. The intervention of horses was fundamental in countless historical events. They were sculpted, painted, cherished, admired; they were thrashed, abused and exposed to terrible danger. From the Roman Empire to the Napoleonic Empire every world-conqueror needed to be shown on a horse. Tolstoy once reckoned that he had cumulatively spent some nine years of his life on horseback. Ulrich Raulff's book, a bestseller in Germany, is a superb monument to the endlessly various creature who has so often shared and shaped our fate.
