The real-life adventures of a young woman pushing the limits, trusting her instincts and living her life off the beaten path Suffering through searing pain and delirious illness in frigid, makeshift conditions, Chloe Phillips-Harris, at the age of 25 years, summoned every ounce of determination to brave the world's most gruelling horse race - the Mongol Derby. This 1000-kilometre endurance race across the wild steppes, desert and mountains of Mongolia - a competition with no marked course, no support team, that requires riders to switch horses every 40 km - saw almost half the competitors drop out along the way, but Chloe persevered. Fearless recounts Chloe's childhood growing up on a run-down farm in a remote corner of New Zealand, with the odds stacked against her, and shares her life-long dedication to animals that has led her to train wild stallions and help save neglected working animals, travelling to some of the most remote and diverse places on the planet - all of which prepared her to overcome unimaginable challenges during a ride like no other.

Parker has never wanted to run Townsend Acres,
but when Brad makes him an offer he can't refuse...

Parker Townsend has always had one passion: eventing. And as he works with a legendary trainer in England, it seems as if Parker's dreams are about to come true. But Parker's scheming father, Brad, wants Parker to give up his “foolish” dreams of competing in the Olympics to manage Townsend Acres when Brad retires.

Parker isn't tempted . . . until Brad buys two horses whose lineages can be traced back to the legendary Welton line! Horses like these would improve Parker's chances of competing in the Olympics, and staying in Kentucky would mean more time with Christina. In his head, Parker knows that he'll be better off if he continues with his training . . . but his heart has other ideas.

Be sure to check out the photograph and bio of the legendary Welton Romance inside!

Pippa Funnell is the golden girl of the British equestrian scene - but it hasn't always been so. She seemed doomed to be a "misser" in the really big competitions - she seemed to lack that special ingredient that makes a true champion in the style of Mark Todd or Ginny Leng. Everything began to change for her in 1999 when her results, including her first European title, were excellent, but it was at the Olympics that she really came of age. Her horse, Supreme Rock, which had promised so much, finally fulfilled his potential and they won a silver medal. Since the Sydney Olympics Pippa has gone from strength to strength. She completed the double of European Championships in 2001. In 2002 she won Badminton - the most prestigious of all three day events - and a further two high level ones. In 2003 she firmly established herself as the top sportswoman in the UK. She won the Rolex Grand Slam - which meant she won three four-star events: Kentucky, Badminton and Burghley. This resulted in her being awarded the Sunday Times sportswoman of the year and coming third in the BBC TV Sports personality of the year awards. Pippa's diary from the Athens Olympics makes fascinating reading as she records the ups and downs of the competition, the triumph of the dressage, her cross-country round and the showjump down that cost her a gold medal. As if all this were not enough, there was the controversy of the medals being reallocated on appeal, meaning Pippa won both a silver and a bronze.

The candid autobiography of one of the world's leading and most popular three-day eventers William Fox-Pitt has been one of the most successful three-day event riders for many years. He began eventing at the age of fifteen and decided to pursue this passion as a career after graduating from university. In 2004, he had a year of extremes, going from winning Badminton to having the agony of seeing his horse get injured during the Olympics, which destroyed his chances of an individual medal and prevented the team from winning gold. The following year, he won Burghley, Gatcombe and Bramham to confirm himself as Britain's top rider. In his eagerly awaited autobiography, he talks about the issues confronting the sport and reveals much about the vital partnerships with team-mates and, above all, the horses that help him to gain such success.

The Revolution In Horsemanship - And What It Means To Mankind (Paperback): Robert M. Miller, Rick Lamb, Hugh Downs The Revolution In Horsemanship - And What It Means To Mankind (Paperback)
Robert M. Miller, Rick Lamb, Hugh Downs
R568 R509 Discovery Miles 5 090 Save R59 (10%) Out of stock

Beginning with equine evolution and domestication, Dr. Miller and Rick Lamb focus on the contributions of such classical horsemen as Xenophon, Pluvinel, nineteenth-century "whisperers, tamers, and professors," and modern masters like the Dorrances, Buck Brannaman, Pat Parelli, John Lyons, and their disciples, and the connection between rodeo and natural horsemanship. The authors describe how the horse's mind works, how horses learn, and how the revolution has used those principles, especially with regard to a training regimen for newborn foals developed by Dr. Miller that produces positive results to last a lifetime. These training methods include new techniques in riding, such as preliminary groundwork and the independent seat, as well as visualization and other aspects of sport psychology, yoga, and allied disciplines. Appendices assess innovations in hoof care, nutrition, and veterinary treatment, including so-called "alternative therapies."
