International Rider I - Foundation Horsemanship - The International Riding Academy offers four main levels of horsemanship. These levels are progressive and designed for riders 12 years and older, however there are open to riders of any age. Riders not yet ready for this program and try the Young Rider program with four easier levels.This program is not designed to replace a riding coach or instructor, rather to just aid in riding lessons. In fact, the program can help as a guideline in the coach's riding lesson program. As well, the levels give the student a proper horsemanship skill base and education in stable management.Graduates of the program can go on to become Stable Managers, Horse Trainers and Coaches!Each level consists of a Work book and informative DVDs. Testing is open book and all multiple choice. A passing grade is 60%. Mounted work is done by video testing and passing grade is 55%. There are several tests for each level, the majority will be theory tests and there will always be one riding theory test. Mounted videos are: Assessment, Flat and Gymnastic (except Rider I). Classical Horsemanship is the foundation of all disciplines, therefore it is also used as a base test for the levels, however not everyone enjoys English riding; therefore, there is also a Western option.A rider may use one to several horses for testing and there is no time limit. The rider just needs to be a current member and enrolled in the proper riding level class.Upon completion a rider will be issued a certificate.Tests can be sent in anytime. Riding tests are done once per semester with four semesters throughout the year. Danish award ribbons are awarded for each mounted test.The rider level program is closely structured to the theories of the four great riding schools of classical horsemanship, Vienna, Jerez, Lisbon and Saumur, as well as from some of the world's top riders of all time. The systemic levels increase in difficulty and intensity. Rider I is for all ages who wish to study ground work, safety and the riding basics that should not be skipped by even the experienced rider.Even though Rider I is the beginning stage of horsemanship and considered an introduction, it covers a lot of theory of the aids and gaits in order to set the rider's education for the next level up. Riders learn and show the basics of riding walk trot with some aids. The rider should have an independent seat and not balance on the horse's mouth. Riders must show safety skills and confidence in the saddle as well as on the ground. Sometimes the aid of a coach is allowed in the tests, however it must be predominantly the rider performing all tasks and issuing orders for how to help if need be, such as hold the halter, or help lift the saddle (should the rider by very small or young). But excessive coaching and outside interference is prohibited, especially in the Classical tests.Tack can vary in styles, but not be mixed and matched. For example, an English rider should use all English tack and attire.Rider clothing can be academic. Please, refer to the Disciplines for proper tack and attire.The horse's turn-out is important, however the horse does not need to be clipped or braided. An effort must be shown to have the horse clean and presentable.During the test a reader can call out directions.

Building on recent debates in critical social theory and international relations, Making Things International I: Circuits and Motion presents twenty-five essays that engage the global, the local, and the international through the lens of objects. It represents the first substantial new materialist intervention in global politics and international relations, offering a diverse and provocative set of reflections on how different objects create, sustain, complicate, and trouble the international. Problematizing the stuff of global life, Making Things International focuses on contemporary materialist scholarship on the international realm. The first of two volumes, these original contributions by both new and established scholars examine how war, diplomacy, trade, communication, and mobile populations are made by things: weapons, vehicles, shipping containers, commodities, passports, and more. The authors demonstrate how mundane, everyday objects—not normally understood as international—are in fact deeply implicated in how we think of the world: blood, garbage, viruses, traffic lights, clocks, memes, and ships’ ballast.

A valuable, thought-provoking look at the best ways riders and horses can learn and improve together. Riding well can be a puzzle. This book puts together the pieces, including: How humans and horses learn. Striving for partnership vs. dictatorship. Early training and developing skills. Demystifying equestrian-speak. Dressage outside the arena. Ground poles for the rest of us. Jumping and cross-country tips. Solving problems, wherever you ride. Competition psychology. Being coached and being a coach. “This book is aimed at riders, coaches, and anyone interested in learning more about how humans and horses interact. I have tried to harness my own experiences when I cover the three main disciplines—dressage, show jumping, and eventing—and how they relate to one another. I look at how those in a coaching position can guide riders to perform better by making their lives less complicated and more fulfilling, and I examine how riders can apply the same principles to training their horses and become self-sufficient.” —Eric Smiley

This book presents a concise account of our current approach to the climate crisis, and provides a clear view of the current situation, and the history of the protocols and promises that have failed. It offers substantial international solutions, exploring the urgent need for an international ethical and progressive alliance that has authority beyond economic self-interests, and arguing in favour of shifting our focus to reducing the manufacture of greenhouse gases rather than concentrating on the reduction of carbon emissions. The book goes on to explore why solutions can only emerge by changing the very international structure of governance, a structure that is now conditioned by out-dated modes created before the collective understanding of the Earth as one whole. It proposes that these solutions can only happen if they are based on an international unity emerging from our collective expertise, ethics, and intelligence among humanity today.

Climate change is one of the major environmental concern of many countries in the world. Negotiations to control potential climate changes have been taking place, from Rio to Kyoto, for the last five years. There is a widespread consciousness that the risk of incurring in relevant economic and environmental losses due to climate change is high. Scientific analyses have become more and more precise on the likely impacts of climate change. According to the Second Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, current trends in greenhouse gases (GHGs) emissions may indeed cause the average global temperature to increase by 1-3. 5 °C over the next 100 years. As a result, sea levels are expected to rise by 15 to 95 em and climate zones to shift towards the poles by 150 to 550 km in mid latitudes. In order to mitigate the adverse effects of climate change, the IPCC report concludes that a stabilization of atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide - one of the major GHGs - at 550 parts per million by volume (ppmv) is recommended. This would imply a reduction of global emissions of about 50 per cent with respect to current levels. In this context, countries are negotiating to achieve a world-wide agreement on GHGs emissions control in order to stabilize climate changes. Despite the agreement on targets achieved in Kyoto, many issues still remain unresolved.

Combining the perspectives of 18 international scholars from Europe and the United States with a critical discussion of the role of culture in international relations, this volume introduces recent trends in the study of Culture and International History. It systematically explores the cultural dimension of international history, mapping existing approaches and conceptual lenses for the study of cultural factors and thus hopes to sharpen the awareness for the cultural approach to international history among both American and non-American scholars. The first part provides a methodological introduction, explores the cultural underpinnings of foreign policy, and the role of culture in international affairs by reviewing the historiography and examining the meaning of the word culture in the context of foreign relations. In the second part, contributors analyze culture as a tool of foreign policy. They demonstrate how culture was instrumentalized for diplomatic goals and purposes in different historical periods and world regions. The essays in the third part expand the state-centered view and retrace informal cultural relations among nations and peoples. This exploration of non-state cultural interaction focuses on the role of science, art, religion, and tourism. The fourth part collects the findings and arguments of part one, two, and three to define a roadmap for further scholarly inquiry. A group of" commentators" survey the preceding essays, place them into a larger research context, and address the question "Where do we go from here?" The last and fifth part presents a selection of primary sources along with individual comments highlighting a new genre of resources scholars interested in culture and international relations can consult.

Written by two internationally recognised experts, Equitation Science is the first book to draw together the principles of this emerging field into a much-needed coherent source of information. The goal of equitation science is to enhance our understanding of how horses think and learn, and to use their natural behaviour to train, ride or compete with them in as fair a manner as possible. The welfare consequences of training and competing horses under different protocols are explored. Drawing on traditional and emergent techniques, this book incorporates learning theory into an ethical equine training system suitable for all levels. It also focuses on evidence-based approaches that improve rider safety. "Equitation Science is one of those rare books that is going to change the way we train and manage horses forever. It brings together a fundamental understanding of the way horses think and behave and presents a system of modern training that has the welfare of the horse at its core – it must be the foundation work for the next generation of professional and amateur riders and trainers. Riders will ride better, trainers will train better and we will have happier, healthier horses." —Wayne Channon, International Grand Prix Rider "I found this a very interesting and enlightening book. Equitation Science will help anyone involved with horses to understand them more and to be more effective in their training and education. The knowledge this brings to anyone involved with horses should help to make the horses’ lives easier and therefore allow the partnership between humans and equines to flourish." —Yogi Breisner, British Eventing Performance Manager "Equitation Science is an ambitious and thorough look at an enormous range of areas, approaches and factors concerning the training of horses. The authors have an underlying theme to their text of scientifically assessing and then also promoting the use of ethical and humane methods of horse training to increase all sport horses’ welfare and happiness within their sporting requirements. Equitation Science also provides an invaluable insight as to how and why what we do with our horses actually works." —Paul Tapner, Professional International Advanced Eventing Rider, Badminton CCI**** 2010 Winner

Bruce Bueno de Mesquita, who set the standard for the scientific approach to international relations, has returned with a reformulated fifth edition of Principles of International Politics, based on extensive reviewer feedback and newly guided by an emphasis on questions about the causes and consequences of war, peace, and world order. More than ever, the strategic perspective in international relations is examined with complete clarity, precision, and accessibility. What hasn't changed is Principles' coverage of the fundamentals of IR. The foundational topics are given sustained treatment: the major theories of war, the domestic sources of international politics, the democratic peace, the problems of terrorism, the role of foreign aid, democratization, international political economy, globalization, international organizations and law, human rights, and the global environment. No other introductory text delivers such an easily-understood contemporary explanation of international politics, while truly enabling students to learn to mobilize the key concepts and models.
