Equestrian Cultures: Horses, Human Society, and the Discourse of Modernity
As much as dogs, cats, or any domestic animal, horses exemplify the vast range of human-animal interactions. Horses have long been deployed to help with a variety of human activities--from racing and riding to police work, farming, warfare, and therapy--and have figured heavily in the history of natural sciences, social sciences, and the humanities. Most accounts of the equine-human relationship, however, fail to address the last few centuries of Western history, focusing instead on pre-1700 interactions. Equestrian Cultures fills in the gap, telling the story of how prominently horses continue to figure in our lives, up to the present day. Kristen Guest and Monica Mattfeld place the modern period front and center in this collection, illuminating the largely untold story of how the horse has responded to the accelerated pace of modernity. The book's contributors explore equine cultures across the globe, drawing from numerous interdisciplinary sources to show how horses have unexpectedly influenced such distinctively modern fields as photography, anthropology, and feminist theory. Equestrian Cultures boldly steps forward to redefine our view of the most recent developments in our long history of equine partnership and sets the course for future examinations of this still-strong bond.

The Animal's Companion: People and their Pets, a 26,000-Year Love Story
The earliest evidence of a human and a pet can be traced as far back as 26,000 BC in France where a boy and his 'canid' took a walk through a cave. Their foot and paw prints were preserved together on the muddy cave floor, and smoke from the torch the boy carried was left on the walls, allowing archaeologists to carbon-date their journey. And so, the story unfolds, from these prehistoric days all the way up to the present, of our innate and undeniable need to live in the close company of animals. In this startling new work, acclaimed cultural detective and lifelong pet owner Jacky Colliss Harvey uses her compelling storytelling skills and keen eye for historical investigation to examine our role as animals' companions, in this exploration of the history not of the pet, but of us as pet owners. Drawing on literary, artistic and archaeological evidence of our relationships with other species, over thousands of years of human experience, she examines the when, the how and the why of our connection to those animals we take into our lives, assessing these against the latest scientific thinking on this complex and enthralling subject, and suggesting new insights into this most long-standing of all human love-affairs.

The Arabian Horse: History, Mystery and Magic
Tracing the history of the Arabian (or Arab) horse from before the time of King Solomon to the present day, the text by Peter Upton - author, artist and internationally recognized expert on the subject - begins by explaining the myth and legend, the true origins of the breed, and its recorded development up to the time of the Prophet Mohammed. The story continues with the role that the Arab horse has played in Islamic conquest and Arab history, highlighting the importance that Islam has always accorded `this most noble of animals'. Woven into this tapestry is the interplay between the Christian and Muslim worlds, illustrated by legendary and factual human anecdotes and peopled by fascinating figures and colourful adventurers, both Arab and Western. With its unrivalled range of illustrations, a comprehensive list of Arab horse organizations, registries and societies, a glossary of Arabic terms and a useful bibliography, here is the definitive book, in both words and pictures, of the noblest breed in all the equine world.

Know Better to Do Better: Mistakes I Made with Horses (So You Don't Have To)
With horses we don't get a `do-over' button, as much as we'd sometimes like one. We have to live with the choices we make, even when-looking back-we know there might have been a better way to communicate, a different way to teach a new lesson, or another means to reach the desired end. In this smart, honest book, chock-full of valuable information, gold medalist and renowned rider and coach Denny Emerson uses stories of the standout horses from his own riding career, which spans almost 70 years, to detail some of the things he wishes he'd known then that he knows now. With a candid willingness to share the mistakes he's made over the years, and clearly articulated ideas on how others can avoid them, he commits himself and those reading to finding more conscientious ways to ride, train, and work with horses. From basics like aids and equipment, to more specialised subjects-such as rider fitness, emotional control, and how to determine what success with your horse really means-riders of all skill levels will gain valuable, hard-won knowledge from his bite-size lessons in life and in horsemanship. Perhaps most importantly, Emerson insists that it is never too late to change, both for the good of the horse and the good of oneself.
