Quiller Publishing has a great selection of new equestrian titles this year which includes Rider Biomechanics: An Illustrated Guide – How to Sit Better and Gain Influence by renowned coach Mary Wanless; Sports Horse Soundness and Performance by Dr Cecilia Lönnell; and a new edition of The Principles of Riding by the German National Equestrian Federation.

Through Rider Biomechanics, one gains a complete understanding of the biomechanics of the rider via a new understanding of fascia — the fabric of the body that links muscles into functional chains, rather like strings of sausages. Within both human and equine bodies these form 'lines of pull', affecting posture, movement, stability and mobility.Learn More

Hunting literature had its beginnings as early as the fourteenth century, when nobles hunted stag, bear, fox, and other game on horseback. In Six Centuries of Foxhunting: An Annotated Bibliography, M. L. Biscotti has compiled more than 2,000 titles that pertain to, or mention, foxhunting with hounds. Narratives, histories, illustrated works, verse, fiction, and even anti-hunting literature all have their place in this volume.
Six Centuries of Foxhunting features more than thirty images of book covers and foxhunting illustrations. With appendixes that contain author, title, and illustrator time lines, and separate author and title indexes, this comprehensive bibliography is a valuable resource for researchers, book dealers and collectors, and foxhunters.Learn More
Sally’s second book Centered Riding 2: Further Exploration doesn’t replace the first one—it complements it. Over the years, Centered Riding continued to evolve, and Sally inevitably developed many new concepts and fresh imagery, all of which are presented in these pages. In addition to these additional riding techniques, Sally concentrates more on the horse than she did in her first book, and she explains in great detail how through the use of Centered Riding you can improve your horse’s musculature and way of going—and consequently, his comfort and performance.Learn More

THERE ARE MANY BOOKS AND DVDS devoted to the technical training of horse and rider – how to perform movements correctly, clear obstacles, communicate efficiently, and in other ways attain the idealized image of an athletic partnership that results in competitive success. But this book is different: its focus is how the rider and trainer can make it easier for the horse to perform optimally. This includes improved understanding of what are reasonable expectations for a particular horse at a certain level of schooling, how to improve his fitness (including strength and conditioning), as well as background on how injuries may develop as a result of interaction between internal and external factors, such as genetics, conformation, management, and training.
Nearly every week of the year, Buck Brannaman is on the road, conducting horsemanship clinics in which he teaches horse owners how to better understand and work with their animals, creating a relationship based on trust and respect rather than force. Buck's skills have become legendary in fact, the main character in Robert Redford's film The Horse Whisperer was based largely on him, and he served as the director's technical adviser during the shoot.Learn More
