EQUESTRIAN BOOKS

To develop a harmonious partnership with your horse, whether you have ambitions in the competition arena or not, you need to develop a two-way communication system that is clear to both of you.

In “The Building Blocks of Training”, Debby Lush, international dressage rider and senior instructor at the Training the Teachers of Tomorrow Trust, offers practical assistance in developing such a system, a progressive and logical one that is firmly rooted in classical training.

The ultimate aim is to enhance the horse’s mental and physical capabilities and so allow him to move easily and happily forward from the earliest simple steps to the more complicated efforts required further up the competition ladder.

With step-by-step guides to every aspect of schooling from lungeing to lengthening (touching on the foundations to move on to the more advanced movements), and with troubleshooting sections to identify why things are going wrong and how to solve them, this book will be invaluable to countless horse and rider partnerships.

Are your dressage scores as high as you expect them to be? Are you good at riding, but not so good at competing?

This book offers coaching on all aspects of preparing for and riding in dressage tests up to Medium level. There are instructions on how to ride all the test movements correctly, along with advice on the practical matters of choosing when and where to compete, learning and practising tests, having your horse and all your equipment organised, and then having a clear routine to follow once you arrive at the show.

Best of all, the author explains how to master the art of competing, including presenting your horse in such a way that any training issues are not obvious to the eye – especially that of the judge.

FICTION

PM-EBOOK_FLAT

Think James Bond meets Lord of the Rings. Award-winning fantasy, THE PRINCE’S MAN, is a sweeping tale of spies and deadly politics, inter-species mistrust and magic phobia, with a touch of romance.
Rustam Chalice, hedonist, dance tutor and spy, loves his life, never better than when he’s bedding a gorgeous woman. So when the kingdom he serves is threatened from within, he leaps into action. Only trouble is, the spy master, Prince Halnashead, teams him up with an untouchable aristocratic assassin who despises him.   And to make matters worse, she’s the most beautiful woman in the Five Kingdoms.    Plunged into a desperate journey through the mountains, the mismatched pair struggle to survive deadly wildlife, the machinations of a spiteful god – and each other.   They must also keep alive a sickly elf they need as a political pawn. But when the elf reveals that Rustam has magic of his own, he is forced to question his identity, his sanity, and worse, his loyalty to his prince.    For in Tyr-en, all magic users are put to death.

DESPRITE MEASURES – an urban fantasy

Cassie Lake is a force of nature. Literally. Now someone wants to use that force without her consent.

Following one too many close encounters with modern plumbing, Scottish water sprite, Cassie, is trying to adapt to living in human form when she is captured by a magician who intends using her power to fuel a potentially lethal experiment.

Escape is just the first of Cassie’s challenges. She falls hopelessly in love with the magician’s other victim, Gloria, a fire elemental Cassie can never touch.  Then, while supporting her best friend, a fledgling witch, through a nasty divorce, Cassie becomes a pawn in a power contest between rival covens. And somehow, she’s become the owner of a troublesome mink.

Belatedly discovering the magician’s worthy motive – to produce clean, free energy – Cassie must thwart Gloria’s plan to murder him without getting either of them killed. With kidnap and blackmail also in the picture, there are multiple lives –and loves – at stake.
