To celebrate World Book Day on Thursday 4 March, we’re hosting our very own BHS Book Week (1-7 March). World Book Day is a celebration of reading, authors, illustrators, and books so we thought we’d celebrate some of the wonderful equestrian authors stocked in the BHS Shop. With interviews, readings, and reviews from a variety of books on our social media throughout the week we hope you’ll find a new title, or two to add to your collection.
During the week we will discover one woman’s journey through love, loss, and healing, and how throughout this, her unwavering love of horses weaved a golden thread of faith, providing strength through the darkest of times and warmth in a time of overwhelming grief.
Kathryn White’s Life Matters is a tribute to the power of love and a testament to the strength and fortitude of the human spirit.
Can The Horse With No Name turn his life around from naughtiness and hijinks to calmness and peace? Possibly, with a little help from his human and pony friends. Author Carrie Byrom, who works with the BHS Changing Lives Through Horses project, realised that talking about our rescue horses’ stories ignited hope and developed resilience in both adults and children.
Whatever level you ride at, the inability to solve a ridden, groundwork or behavioural problem causes frustration and can leave you feeling powerless. Chartered veterinary physiotherapist and author Sue Palmer reveals how you can determine whether your horse's performance is affected by his behaviour (brain), health (pain) or training, and she explains clearly how to overcome difficulties through tried and tested technologies with the popular book Understanding Horse Performance, Brain, Pain or Training?
We will also be introducing several new titles into the range during book week including Beth Baumert's book How Two Minds Meet. Her first book, When Two Spines Align: Dressage Dynamics, was incredibly popular and lauded by Olympian Carl Hester as the book he most frequently quotes at clinics, it examined the ways the physical bodies of horse and rider work together—the physics behind riding in balance. In this new book How Two Minds Meet, she takes us beyond physical harmony to look at the minds of both horse and rider, each complete with its own set of emotions and mental capabilities.
