4 Allison, Keith & Christopher Day A Guide to Alternative Therapies for Horses

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.

Meadville, PA Chautauqua Scientific & Chautauqua Institution 1889 First Edition First Printing; Hardcover Very Good+

Overall, pages are clean and tight, with many b/w illustrations and ads of the period. It was founded in 1874 by inventor Lewis Miller and Methodist Bishop John Heyl Vincent as a teaching camp for Sunday school teachers. The teachers would disembark at Palestine Park, and begin a course of Bible study that used the Park to teach of the geography of the Holy Land. The Institution has operated each summer since then, gradually expanding its season length and program offerings organized around the four pillars: arts, education, religion and recreation. The physical setting of the Institution defined its development as an assembly. The grounds are situated on the west shoreline of upper Chautauqua Lake. In 1973 the National Park Service recognized the institution's historic importance by adding it to the National Register of Historic Places. In 1989, the Department of the Interior designated it a National Historic Landmark District, consisting of most of the Institution property between NY 394, formerly NY 17J, the lake and (roughly) Lowell and North avenues. ]A range of special studies courses in music, art, dance, drama and general topics are also offered. The Chautauqua Schools of Music offer extremely competitive programs on the basis of scholarship. George Gershwin visited Chautauqua as a summer refuge to compose parts of his Concerto in F in a small wooden piano studio and give its first public performance. The 10: 45 morning lecture program is one of the most distinctive features of the program at the Institution. The program for each week is built around a unifying theme, such as world events. Chautauqua has been visited by United States Presidents from Ulysses S. Grant to Bill Clinton, and by other prominent Americans including Booker T. Washington, Karl Menninger, Tom Ridge and, in 2006, Al Gore. Franklin D. Roosevelt's historic "I hate war" speech was delivered from the podium in the Chautauqua Amphitheater (1936). The Chautauqua movement spread throughout the United States and was highly popular until the start of the World War II. The ChautauquaLiterary and Scientific Circle (CLSC) , founded in 1878 by Bishop Vincent, is America's oldest continuously operating book club. It was founded to promote self-learning and study, particularly among those unable to attend higher institutions of learning. Extra heavy, 6#.
