This is a book for females of any age who possess a love of horses and the freedom of riding. It is a tailor-written for the woman; its purpose to inspire, educate and foster the efforts of the developing equestrian who must otherwise maintain a lifestyle outside of the ring. This book carefully educates the beginning rider, while encouraging spirit and compassion to ride both correctly and safely. Between the covers of this book, the reader will find each chapter full of information essential to the overall development of the complete equestrian.
This volume brings together studies from various disciplines of the social sciences and humanities ( anthropology, sociology, cultural studies, history and literary theory) that shed light on the equestrian world as a historically gendered and highly dynamic field of contemporary sport and culture. From high level international dressage and jumping, polo and the turf, to the rodeo world of the Americas and popular forms of equestrian sport and culture, we are introduced to a range of issues that are played out at local and global, national and international levels. Students and scholars of gender, culture and sport will find much of interest in this original look at contemporary issues such as “engendered” (women’s and men’s) identities/subjectivities as equestrians, representations of girls, horses and the world of adventure in juvenile fiction; the current “feminization” of particular equestrian activities (and where boys and men stand in relation to this); how broad forms of social inequality and stratification play themselves out within gendered equestrian contexts; men and women and their relation to horses within the framework of current discussions on the relation of animals to humans (which may include not only love and care, but also exploitation and violence), among others. Singular contributions show how equestrian activities contribute to historical and current constructions of embodied “femininities” and “masculinities”, reflecting a world that has been moving “beyond the binaries” while continuing to be enmeshed in their persistent and contradictory legacy.
Bergmann’s Equestrian Venture is the 4th book in the nine-book series. Earth was spared the brunt of a comet-induced planet-wide winter by the Striver-led, Banderat-implemented, redirection of three comets. Bergmann’s Team played an important part in that cometary redirection. Now the Team has been invited to move a small herd of horses to the planet Baldon: Banderat would like to ride! This venture is the first feat Guy hopes to execute in his long-term plans to forge an extraterrestrial Human presence. The interstellar trip aboard Climber, a first for Humans, is a prelude to their successful arrival at the city of Bandalu, where they help finish an equestrian resort. Nita’s ‘surprise’ is a shock to all the team: the first Human child to be born off Earth. A family of Sayen reveals their presence to Guy, Nita, Greg and Raquel, on the mountain slope above Highlands Resort. The presence of a hidden seventh sapient race sends Shockwaves through the Concordat.

"This work places the modern period (post-1700) at the center of the scholarship on horses as they relate to humans, showing how the horse has remained central to the accelerating culture of modernity. The contributors investigate specific equine cultures--from the performance of social power and the definition of heritage in Europe, Australia, and the Americas, to explorations of the ways horses figure in distinctively modern genres of the self, such as autobiography, biography, and photographic portraiture."--Supplied by publisher.
Author Toney Allman provides an in-depth look at the scientific principles behind equestrian events such as racing, dressage, hunting, endurance events, steeplechase, and polo. Chapters cover physics, biomechanics, genetics, physical training, and how tack affects the rider and the horse, and the psychology of training. Includes graphics to help explain the scientific principles being discussed and a list of sources for further research.
