2 Beaman, Arthur S. Lure Coursing: Field Trialing for Sighthounds and How Take Part
New York Howell Book House 1994 0876056281 / 9780876056288 First Edition Pictorial Cover New  
Cover is glazed boards with some slight rubbing, bumping. Pages are clean and tight, really a new book with crisp pages. Extensively illustrated with many b/w photos, drawings and diagrams. A sport that most people are not familiar with, sight hunting. This is different from how the majority of breeds hunt, by scent. Coursers, or sighthounds, hunt primarily by vision, so must have a visible lure. As in greyhound racing, with the dogs chasing the mechanical rabbit. Great book for those interested in this more unusual aspect of dog ownership and activities. ; Remainder; B&W Illustrations; 8vo; 6 x 9 1/2; 214 pages; Remainder mark.

3 Burger, Udo and Otto Zietzschmann The Rider Forms The Horse: Function and Development of the Muscles of the Riding Horse
Warrendorf, Germany FN Verlag Deutsche Reiterliche Vereinigung E. V. 2003 3885424886 / 9783885424888 First English Edition Soft Cover New 
NEW book; still in the publisher's shrinkwrap. Soft cover, maroon ground with grey lettering; grey spine with maroon lettering. Back flap folds out to show figure 4, in color. Pages are clean and tight. Multiple copies available. Illustrated with 24 b/w photographs and drawings from the 1939 edition; additionally there are 23 color photographs added to the 2003 edition. "The photographs have been retained in their authentic form in order to maintain the integrity of the original book because the prints relate technically very closely to the text and should only serve to better illustrate the training of the horse to the rider". Translated by Teresa Hoffmann. "In this book, first published in 1939, the authors....set out clearly and precisely the requirements for the successful training and long and healthy life of the riding horse. The authors explain the physiological facts which are the foundation of the teaching of riding and discuss important factors in the training of the horse and how to recognize and rectify training problems. Olympic champion and former German national trainer [sic, now the trainer for the USA dressage team] Klaus Balkenhol and Dr. Gerd Heuschmann...as well as other prominent figures in the equestrian world, set out why this book is just as important to today's riders and horsemen as when it was written. According to Klaus Balkenhol, average horses can be made into top horses through correct training and an understanding of the links between muscular function and the construction of the skeleton working in combination during the different phases of trining. From the point of view of the veterinary practitioner, correct and well-thought-through riding remains the best way to prevent all injuries to the horse. Dr. Gerd Heuschmann considers this book to be compulsory reading for all competition and amateur riders of every equestrian discipline who feel responsible for their horses, and for trainers, judges and veterinary practicitioners". This edition has a foreword by Klaus Balkenol; thoughts on the book by Dr. Gerd Heuschmann; 1989 foreword by Heinz-Dieter Donner; 12 chapters; two appendices, dealing with position and function of the muscles, and a select bibliography. Scarce book to find in English, and still considered one of the great classics of riding titles from the 20th century. ISBN in book is 3885424886. ; B&W and Color Illustrations; 6 1/2 x 9 1/2; 120 pages
