1 Brooksbank, Anne Archer
Australia Bay Books 1985 0858358247 / 9780858358249 1st Edition Pictorial Soft Cover Good 12mo 
120 pages. The year is 1861. The Victorian Turf Club has announced plans to stage the biggest, the richest and the most prestigious race in the southern hemisphere, the Melbourne Cup, its venue the Flemington course. Over 550 miles away is a young boy with a dream, and a horse with a brave heart. The boy's dream is to win the Cup, and the horse is Archer whom, he believes, can do it. Both boy and horse must walk to Melbourne. The story of their journey is an epic of courage. Archer's young strapper, Dave Power, sets out with all the confidence and optimism of youth. He suffers hardship and humiliation, and comes to accept that life is both cruel and unfair. But he also learns the art of survival. At journey’s end he experiences the joys of victory - and its lessons. Now filmed as a Channel 10 tele-movie, Archer, shows a fledgling Australia in transition. Its characters are unforgettable, not least among them Archer.

Move Closer Stay Longer: Don't let fear keep  you from getting  what you want,  doing what you want,  and going where you want to go., Burns, Dr. Stephanie
2 Burns, Dr. Stephanie Move Closer Stay Longer: Don't let fear keep you from getting what you want, doing what you want, and going where you want to go.
Dr. Stephanie Burns 1450534880 / 9781450534888 Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
110 pages including b/w illustrations and forward by Linda Parelli. Move Closer Stay Longer is relevant whether the issue is fear, or frustration, or confusion - any negative emotion that is standing in the way. It is also relevant whether the fear has to do with horses, asking for a raise, or sailing a boat! Move Closer Stay Longer was a difficult book to write and was nearly 2 years in the making. I just could not get it right until I had genuinely experienced the use of the strategy and was advancing steadily toward my Parelli horsemanship goals. It was very frustrating. Move Closer Stay Longer takes you right into the heart of my life, my goals and failings! It is a brutally honest and very personal account of my experience into fear and through it. Some of the stories are hilarious, making the real educational content of the book memorable. It seems hundreds of us have had similar experiences! It will draw you right into your own experience. To receive Stephanie's quarterly updates noting new developments type your email address and hit submit. This list is NOT used for any purpose other than to keep you informed. The first section of the book focuses on developing for you an accurate understanding of the phenomenon of fear and other negative emotions. Most people have a day-to-day theory about emotions that may be all that is needed for navigated some of life’s event, but not good enough to sort out the real challenges when it comes to goals. I feel everyone needs and deserves an understanding of emotions based on good research. That was my job and one I am uniquely qualified to do. At the end of this section you will know a lot about fear: What it is, what is its true function and why it affects human behaviour the way it does? The second section is a practical guide that takes you step-by-step through a process of discovery about your fears, whether they are horsemanship related or other, and then teaches you a bravery strategy that enables you to get on with advancing toward your goal. Then, using the same strategy as a learning strategy accelerates your rate of advancement beyond anything you might be doing now. The third and final section of Move Closer Stay Longer gives you the best motivation strategies you will find anywhere in education. The reason I included these was because to do the practical section of the book and use the strategy taught you HAVE to take action - doing a little something on a regular basis. I know from years of experience teaching goal achievement and motivation that this is NOT achievable for most adults. To have not including these motivation strategies in this particular book would have been a real disservice. It is not fair to offer someone help knowing full well they will likely fail anyway. I cannot think of anything worse an educator might do. So, the strategies I used to keep getting out there are in this book and they do work! My goal for you in this book is that you are able to move forward no matter how long or deeply you have been stuck and one day you wake up to realise that you have forgotten that you were ever afraid. I hope too you have a few good laughs along the way. (Dr. Stephanie Burns).

103 pages including b/w illustrations. This is one of a trio of books (The Saddle, Bitting and Training Aids) which combine to form a practical manual covering the origin, action, use and recommended fitting of a very wide range of items within the three areas. Written in a clear, readable style and well-illustrated throughout, the books should be of interest to all horse-owners and riders and of value to examination candidates, providing as it does a sound understanding of the subject. This book looks at bitting, with five principal headings, beginning with an explanation of the development of bitting systems, culminating in those currently in use. The function of the bit within the combination of rational aids is defined and is followed by an examination of the equine mouth conformation as a factor governing choice. The bitting groups and the patterns which are available are all clearly explained, together with details of the action of each and their suitability to the purpose and the stage of training. Particular attention is paid to bridle fitting, construction and materials and there is a clear explanation of the influence of bitting auxiliaries (nosebands and martingales) on the action of the bit. Also included is a short section on common bitting problems and another on cleaning and maintenance.
