23 3rd Practical Horseman Classical Riding with George H. Morris By Editors Sandra Oliynyk and Allison Rogers Copyright 2014 This book starts with an opening chapter that refers to the author, George H. Morris, in the third person. After that, the voice becomes that of Morris and once Morris starts concentrating on the interaction between horse and rider, along with the process of training the horse, the book finds its stride. Morris manages to show confidence without sounding smug or overbearing. Especially effective are the excellent and very specific step-by-step photos and descriptions of what's right and what's wrong. Honorable Mention Freedom Health/SUCCEED The Guide to Equine Colic Awareness Patrick Warczak, Jr, Creative Director Jackie Baker, Digital Marketing Strategist, Writer Copyright 2014 This is a well-researched and artfully balanced series of chapters that utilizes technical terminology and practical observation techniques. Helpful and highly readable. Betty Weibel The Cleveland Grand Prix: An American Show Jumping First By Betty Weibel Copyright 2014 Who knew that Cleveland was and continues to be the hot spot for grand prix show jumping? Not me, and I grew up on the west side of Cleveland. This immaculately researched and painstakingly assembled history is an essential contribution to the legacy of the sport. Although it's written rather formally, there are enough anecdotes and quotes to keep it interesting.
