His father was placing him on the backs of horses before he could walk. One of his early vivid memories is of a scary spill, at age 5 or 6, off a fast galloping pony. A few years later he was harnessing and handling in the field his own team of work horses. Until his parents found out, he was breaking to ride not only the young work horses but the feeder cattle as well. His first experiences as a trainer were teaching tricks to a pony 65 years ago and gentling and starting two riding horses for a great uncle 60 years ago. The first 50 years of his adult life were spent as an academic biologist, trying to understand the behavior of animals and humans. He is a 35-year continuous breeder of American Quarter Horses and still starts the young horses bred and reared on the Michigan farm that he and Lorrie have operated for 37 of their 59 shared years. He is author or editor of a dozen books.. In his earlier life he was for 43 years a University of Michigan biology professor. He is a medalist and member of the National Academy of Sciences, past president of the Human Behavior and Evolution Society, and the Animal Behavior Society’s Animal Behaviorist of the Year: 2002.

6 Allison, Keith & Christopher Day A Guide to Alternative Therapies for Horses
London J. A. Allen 1996 0851316654 / 9780851316659 Stapled wraps Fine

Sections are: Introduction; Demise of natural medicines and therapies; growing demand for holistic medicine; Terminology; Alternative therapies available for horses; saddlery and farriery; useful addresses. Very handy guide for caring for your horse. Too often, for people and animals, the medical field wants to push only 'modern' and high tech cares and cures. But low tech, common sense approaches can be as, or more so, effective in treating your horse's needs. As my beloved old vet would say "less is more...." , and when possible, start on that basis. Amazing how much cold or hot water, compresses/poultices, rest, liniments/rubs, and so on, can do to heal your horse up just fine. In today's faster paced world we sometimes forget that time, and slowly but surely, will heal as well, if not better, prolonging the life, including working life, of your horse, and the length of your partnership. ; British Association of Holistic Nutrition Series; B & W illustrations; 0.3 x 4.9 x 0.5 Inches; 40 pages; Cover has slight rubbing, tiny bit of bumping to corners.

9 Ballentine, Christine D. A Brave Heart, A Broken Heart The Horse Everybody Wanted but Me
Attica, MI Door-A-Day Publishing 1996 First Edition Softcover Fine 
Pages are clean and tight. Illustrated with b/w photos. Signed on title page by author 1997. As a young girl Christine Ballentine was the typical, horse crazy kid. Finally, when she was 9 , her parents got her a horse, Jerry. Jerry was nothing like the horse she'd fantasized about, but he was now hers. Jerry was a pinto, but not like the prancing, gorgeous pinto Christine dreamed about. But he was hers. And in 1996, 21 years after Jerry died, this woman, still with the horse crazy girl inside her, wrote this loving story about her first horse, and what she taught him, and how much more he taught her. For every one of us, who has dreamed of our own horse, whether realized or not, this is a great story. Some of us it took until we were much older, but are luckily sharing our lives with our fantasy horse; like Christine, mine doesn't look quite as I had envisioned, and some other differences, but in Oh so many ways, he is so much more than that unreal horse. We may no longer be little girls, or boys, but the love, passion for horses, runs as deeply as ever. ; B&W Photographs; 5 1/2 x 8 1/2; 70 pages; Cover his very slight shelf wear. ; Signed by Author

15 Belasik, Paul The Essential Paul Belasik Riding Towards the Light; Exploring Dressage Technique; the Songs of Horses
North Pomfret, VT Trafalgar Square Publishing 2002 1570762120 / 9781570762123 First Edition First Printing; Hardcover Fine in Near Fine dust jacket 
Inscribed on front end paper "TO ANNE, BEST WISHES, PAUL BELASICK". Cover is green with gold lettering on spine. Pages are clean and tight, DJ in mylar cover. This is the first compilation of Paul's original three books, now bound together as one title. For anyone who rides dressage, wanting to know why, and how, and how to do it better, what should it feel like and look like, this is absolutely the most perfect book. In these three titles Paul takes you along on his journey, training with modern masters, reading and learning all he can about previous masters, always seeking the purest, best way to achieve the ultimate perfection of horse and rider as one, dancing partners, floating together in unison through the equestrian art of dressage. If you've had the privilege of watching Paul teach, and ride [I've luckily done so many times], you understand how he is truly to be considered a modern master. If you've had the even rarer privilege of seeing Paul and Eli [the late St. Graal], doing the levade about 10 feet away from you [as I have], creating equestrian art with every move, from living flesh, including tempis, passage, piaffe, pirouettes, and so forth, then the tingle going up your spine makes you realize that riding perfection isn't just a fantasy, it does exist here on earth; alas, a dream achieved by the few, but eternally sought by most dressage riders. Paul writes as well as he rides, bringing you along on his quest and into his thoughts. He is included in Martin Diggle's 'Masters of Equitation' series [those titles are also available]. With Dr. Hilary Clayton [McPhail Chair Emerita at Michigan State Univ] he has assisted in ground breaking studies of equine biomechanics and locomotion [Dr. Clayton's books are also available]. Excellent companion books to this title: Masters of Equitation on Trot; Masters of Equitation on Canter [both edited by Martin Diggle], and Conditioning Sport Horses, the classic by Dr. Hilary Clayton; all are available in my listings. Multiple copies of all of these books are available. ; B&W Illustrations; 6 1/2 x 9 1/2; 128, 144, 125 pages; Signed by Author
