We have collected books and DVDs from around the world to help you care for and train horses, teach riders, and master new riding skills – from dressage to driving, from eventing to endurance riding, and from trail riding to team penning. Or, maybe you like stories about horses – we have those, too.

If you're traveling this direciton, come visit our store near Boothbay Harbor in picturesque Edgecomb, Maine. We are open Tuesday through Saturday from noon to 6 pm EST. We keep our own horses close by and they love company. Mention the word "Carrot!" and they'll come running!
NEW ARRIVALs Winter 2013
Alchemy of Lightness: What Happens between Horse & Rider on a Molecular Level - And How It Helps Achieve the Ultimate Connection
Enlightening the reader on how to truly become one with your horse, this work opens the world of "molecular equitation," or the "scientific study of the interplay of mechanisms put in motion when man and horse meet, communicate, and ultimately become one."
Authors Dominique Barbier and Dr. Maria Katsamanis explain how the science in the art of equitation can ultimately lead to togetherness, and encourages the rider to let the horse be the teacher at times. The book also explains that you as the rider have to change your consciousness in order to change your riding. This work is a beautiful example of how you must respect, trust, and be one with your horse, in order to obtain that ever-elusive, total lightness with your horse.
