If you’ve always dreamed of starting a young horse under saddle but are uncomfortable with traditional horse breaking or horse training techniques that assume all horses are the same, this short book is for you. If you’re a seasoned equestrian looking for a better way, you’ll enjoy trying some of the ideas here too. There are some easy ways you can set up for success with your horseback riding project to keep both you and your horse happy and wanting to learn more together.<br />Discover simple techniques for understanding your horse, making him more comfortable and designing a plan for between training sessions that makes progress quick and schooling time rewarding. Test ideas that may be different than what everyone else is doing to see if an unusual approach works better for you and your horse. <br />Young horse training is a lot easier – and a lot harder – than most people make it out to be. Fortunately, most issues can be avoided if you keep the horse in the conversation. That doesn’t mean letting him make all the decisions, but it does involve listening to what he is trying to tell you. Horses have been bred for millenniums to interact with humans – most seek a meaningful partnership that includes a job with people in the mix. If you can keep early training time fun for both of you, you’ll lay a foundation for deep bonds, trust and a team approach to solutions that has you amazed at what your horse will do for you. <br />Formula approaches don’t work very well because each horse is different. What works for a timid horse usually isn’t very effective with an alpha. Handling history plays a role too. Your horse will work harder to try to understand what you want if you pay attention to how he’s responding to your schooling decisions. <br />This is the first e-booklet in the Young Horse Training Tips series, a title from our Horse Sense and Cents® imprint. We hope you enjoy the ride as you learn new ways to make keeping your horse in the conversation before you even saddle up.

<i><h3>The first book in a trilogy about three "brothers" and the girls they must protect.</h3></i><br />All Christiana wanted was a little flirty fun.<br />What she got was a one-way ticket to her personal nightmare.<br /><br />Her friend is dead…and she knows who did it. Now a key witness in a murder trial, she’s been hidden away in the one place no one will think to look for her: Eton Preparatory School for Boys.<br /><br />It’s a stupid move. Insane. But she doesn’t have a choice.<br />Instead of completing her senior year with the popular crowd, she’s being forced to hide in a school with exactly zero XX chromosomes. Even worse, she’s somehow supposed to act like the Neanderthals walking the halls.<br /><br />But then she meets the guys next door—the smoking-hot ones. And it doesn’t help that one in particular could unravel her in a heartbeat…and potentially blow her cover. How’s she supposed to resist Trey Calloway, the star hockey player who never backs down from a fight…and who never takes no for an answer?<br /><br />She’s supposed to be focused on staying safe, not on the guy who’s getting under her skin. Her chilling past isn’t going to suddenly disappear.<br />In fact, it might just be catching up with her.<br /><br /><br /><b><i>If you're looking for a fast paced thrill ride packed with drama, suspense, romance and unexpected twists, then See No Evil is just the book for you.</i></b> <br /><br /><br /><i>COMING SOON: <br />Speak No Evil - due for release in Jan 2017<br />Hear No Evil - due for release in Feb/Mar 2017<br /><br />For exclusive access to an unpublished short story about how Christiana's nightmare began, sign up for Jordan's newsletter: http://www.subscribepage.com/u5u0a3</i><br />

"Natalie weaves the story of Jules, her horses, and their uncertain road to the upper levels of eventing with realism and detail." - The Equine Insider<br /><br />" 'Ambition' is one of the good ones." - Susannah St. Clair (Vine Voice Reviewer)<br /><br />"This all felt very real to me." - Karen McGoldrick<br /><br />Jules Thornton didn’t come to Ocala to make friends. She came to make a name for herself. Young, determined, and tough as nails, she’s been swapping stable-work for saddle-time since she was a little kid - and it hasn’t always been a fun ride. Forever the struggling rider in a sport for the wealthy, all Jules has on her side is talent and ambition. She’s certain all she needs to succeed are good horses, but will the eventing world agree?<br /><br />On her own at last, Jules is positive she’s poised to become eventing’s newest star, but soon finds she’s making more enemies than friends in the close-knit equestrian community. Little mistakes cost big -- her students are losing faith in her; her owners are starting to pull their horses. And then there’s the small matter of Peter Morrison, the handsome, on-the-rise event rider who keeps showing up when she least expects him. <br /><br />Jules is convinced that all she needs is good horses -- not friends, not romance, not anyone’s nose in her business. But it’s just the beginning of the long, hot, Ocala summer, and as Jules tumbles through the highs and lows of a life with horses, she might find she’ll need help after all to weather the coming storm.<br /><br />In the equestrian literary tradition of Jane Smiley (Horse Heaven) and Sara Gruen (Riding Lessons, Water for Elephants), Natalie Keller Reinert takes readers into the riding life as only a horsewoman can.

Margot tells Lizzy that nothing in life is ever really settled, not until they “pack the earth over your grave, darling.”<br /><br />And of course, as usual, Margot is right.<br /><br />Although Lizzy is living her dream at “Equus Paradiso Farm” there is no guarantee that her future is settled. She is terrified to think that despite her hard work, despite her commitment and desire, her efforts may not be enough.<br /><br />Regardless of the shifting sands beneath her feet, Lizzy still has a job to do. It is a job with growing responsibilities, without regular hours, without weekends off, that pays almost nothing and keeps beating her up physically and mentally.<br /><br />And while success is not guaranteed, failure in part or whole appears to be.<br /><br />Maybe she is foolish with her rainbow and unicorn thinking; maybe her nay-sayers were right all along and reality is coming to kick her in the rear and eject her out of paradise and back out into the ordinary world.<br /><br />Not all good deeds are rewarded, or efforts even appreciated as the territory of her daily routine gets trickier to navigate.<br /><br />Life is not fair. But giving up before the battle is finished is not an option.<br /><br />Though she’ll be tested, though she’ll know doubt and failure, she will come to discover, she is indeed, the “right girl for the job.”<br /><br />Lizzie's saga continues in Book III of the critically acclaimed Dressage Chronicles series.

<b>In this captivating and lavishly illustrated young adult edition of her award-winning #1 <i>New York Times</i> bestseller, Laura Hillenbrand tells the story of a former Olympian's courage, cunning, and fortitude following his plane crash in enemy territory. This adaptation of <i>Unbroken</i> introduces a new generation to one of history's most thrilling survival epics. </b><br /><br />On a May afternoon in 1943, an American military plane crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared. It was that of a young lieutenant, the plane’s bombardier, who was struggling to a life raft and pulling himself aboard. So began one of the most extraordinary sagas of the Second World War.<br /> <br />The lieutenant’s name was Louis Zamperini. As a boy, he had been a clever delinquent, breaking into houses, brawling, and stealing. As a teenager, he had channeled his defiance into running, discovering a supreme talent that carried him to the Berlin Olympics. But when war came, the athlete became an airman, embarking on a journey that led to his doomed flight, a tiny raft, and a drift into the unknown.<br /> <br />Ahead of Zamperini lay thousands of miles of open ocean, leaping sharks, a sinking raft, thirst and starvation, enemy aircraft, and, beyond, a trial even greater. Driven to the limits of endurance, Zamperini would respond to desperation with ingenuity, suffering with hope and humor, brutality with rebellion. His fate, whether triumph or tragedy, would hang on the fraying wire of his will.<br /> <br />Featuring more than one hundred photographs plus an exclusive interview with Zamperini, this breathtaking odyssey—also captured on film by director Angelina Jolie—is a testament to the strength of the human spirit and the ability to endure against the unlikeliest of odds.<br /><br /><br /><b>Praise for <i>Unbroken<br /></i></b><br />"This adaptation of Hillenbrand's adult bestseller is highly dramatic and exciting, as well as painful to read as it lays bare man's hellish inhumanity to man."—<b><i>Booklist</i>, STARRED</b><br /><br />"This captivating book emphasizes the importance of determination, the will to survive against impossible odds, and support from family and friends. A strong, well-written work."—<b><i>SLJ<br /></i></b><br />"This fine adaptation ably brings an inspiring tale to young readers."—<i><b>Kirkus</b><br /></i><br /><br /><br /><i>From the Hardcover edition.</i>
