Based on an understanding of the biomechanical demands of riding, the strategies in this book will teach riders how to connect with their horse in a way that makes sense to both and ultimately leads to better riding. It features real riders and horses throughout and takes riders through the mechanics of riding in a logical, step-by-step method that identifies common challenges so that riders may identify their own problems and learn to get the methods right. Case studies will help readers relate their own problems with those included in the book, and instruction on achieving a firm seat and proper posture will result in an immediate improvement of performance of horse and rider.

Riding skills guru Mary Wanless looks at a series of common rider faults or problems and, through words and photos, explains how to correct them. Each fault or problem is demonstrated by a different rider - some working at basic level, others advanced. Mary gives each rider a lesson, taking them through the (often subtle) changes they have to make, and recording their progress with specially taken photographs. Readers can witness the changes taking place and understand through Mary's gifted teaching, how to make the necessary shift to improve their own riding skills.The 'before' and 'after' pictures show not only the improvements in the rider's position and effectiveness but also in their horse's way of going, for the two are interconnected. Among the topics for in-depth discussion are rider position, muscle tone and stabilisation; how our minds and bodies learn new techniques or change old habits; rider asymmetry; mental attitudes; lateral work; advanced work; and faults such as tipping forward, leaning back, hollowing the back, rounding the back, and pulling on the inside rein.

Modern rider biomechanics begins by explaining fascia--the "Cinderella" of body tissues. Until recently, fascia was ignored by science, consigned to its apparent role as the body's "packing material." However, research now shows that, in reality, this biological fabric is what links muscles into functional chains. In this eye-opening book, rider biomechanics pioneer Mary Wanless explores the characteristics of the body's fascia and why understanding how it works not only improves a rider's balance and coordination, but also enhances "feel," since fascia contains many more sensory nerves than muscles. These register the forces that pull on an area, and thus a "fascial net" under tension creates a wellspring of strength and sensation. By learning to access and rebalance your own fascial net, your stability, skill, and feel will be significantly improved, helping you become a quieter, more effective rider.--

Established and renowned theologians and philosophers, such as Kevin Hart, Eduardo Mendieta, and Clemens Sedmak, as well as upcoming and talented young academics look at peace and non-violence through the lens of recent scholarly advances on the subject achieved in the fields of theology, philosophy, political theory, and environmentalism.

By reading my story it will help them adjust to the monumental changes in their life and that of their injured family member. They will learn that it is sometimes two steps forward and one step back. In the days ahead; they will learn not to take things personally if their brain injured loved one becomes angry or verbally abusive and they will discover the importance of setting boundaries. As well, it is important not to feel guilty if they wish time for themselves or if they occasionally feel frustrated; their life has changed also. Initially the most crucial things to do are to ask the right questions; take control of the situation; be proactive; be their own advocate for their injured family member and realize the necessity of having support. These are vital when battling cognitive and behavioral problems, frustration and anger management difficulties, confusion and short-term memory loss as well as other brain injury impairments. Included with my story are sample cognitive exercises that we used at an early stage in Larry's development which helped immensely in his progress towards recovery. As time goes on they will learn that there are adaptations and adjustments that will be necessary to make for their new life. There will also be many bumps in the road. Any road that is not travelled alone makes the trip much easier. By reading Rollercoaster Ride With Brain Injury (For Loved Ones), the reader will realize they are not alone; many others have travelled the road before them.

Most riders concentrate endless hours on their horses: warming them up; improving their strength and stamina with gymnastic exercises; cultivating specialized diets to keep them in peak condition; and ensuring that through proper turn–out, time off, and companionship, they remain psychologically content. What is often forgotten is that the horse is half of an athletic partnership. The rider’s own physical and mental fitness affects the end performance of the team, and warming up, conditioning, diet, and psychological stability apply to them as well. This highly illustrated book helps equestrians improve their own bodies and minds on the ground, so they can better perform on a horse.
