"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.

"The Five Elements of Elite Quarterbacking" is a collection of essays on the premier position in sports. Through comprehensive research, technical analysis, and multiple case studies of NFL quarterbacks, the book explains the key components that result in elite level quarterback play. The book also examines several other aspects of quarterbacking in the NFL including the relevance of physical ability and height, the relationship between production and salary cap number, and quarterbacks leaving college. Case studies include Tom Brady, Drew Brees, Peyton Manning, Aaron Rodgers, Mark Sanchez, Kellen Moore, Tim Tebow, Johnny Manziel, among others.<br /><br />Chapters Include:<br /><br />Chapter 1: The Five Elements of Elite Quarterbacking<br />Chapter 2: The Fallacy of Physical Tools<br />Chapter 3: Height<br />Chapter 4: Drafting QB’s: Using the Wrong Filter Over and Over Again<br />Chapter 5: The Dream of the Perfect Quarterback / the Pros & Cons of being an Athletic QB<br />Chapter 6: Why Tom Brady Was Not and Will Never Be A First Round Pick<br />Chapter 7: The Plight of Timothy Richard Tebow<br />Chapter 8: Stay in School Kids – A Conversation* with Johnny Football<br /><br /><br />Excerpt:<br /><br />© 2016 Eric Marty<br /><br />“Elite quarterbacking demands consistency; getting to the right play, against the right defense, and executing post snap again and again and again. Elite quarterbacking is personified every time Brees speeds through vertical progression only to check the football down for a positive play, Manning sniffs out a blitz and checks to a receiver screen, or Brady flips the direction of a run play to give it a better chance of success. Those are a few real world examples of what elite quarterbacks do. Here are the five elements that when executed consistently at a high level encompass the pinnacle of modern quarterback play:<br /><br />The Five Elements of Elite Quarterbacking<br /><br />1.The ability to have total command of the offense while gathering and processing large amounts of information and using that information to make accurate snap decisions in the 25-40 seconds before the snap of the football.<br />2.The ability to see accurately, completely, and without distraction from the pocket.<br />3.The ability to get the football into the hands of other skill players by working through pass progressions quickly, decisively, and correctly.<br />4.The ability to consistently deliver the ball to open receivers with functional accuracy.<br />5.The ability to protect the football and minimize turnovers.”<br /><br />NOW GO DOWNLOAD AND READ THE REST!<br />
