Horse, Follow Closely
Author: Gawani Pony Boy
Publisher: i5 Publishing
The bible of North American Horsemanship, Horse, Follow Closely is GaWaNi Pony Boy’s signature title about the relationship training methods that are steeped in common sense and the age-old wisdom of his Native American ancestors. Of mixed blood Tsa-la-gi, GaWaNi Pony Boy was able to conceive his philosophy and compile the methods of relationship training while touring the United States with a Native American drum band and consulting the Tribal Elders from many different nations and backgrounds. The methods and beliefs of relationship training come directly from the first great horsemen of North America. “Horse and rider are one. Theirs is a relationship of trust, harmony, and respect born of a way of life that is all but lost.” The stunning full-color photographs by Gabrielle Boiselle capture Pony Boy’s serenity and unity with his close horse companions. The author’s simple eloquence forges a deep, profound relationship with his readers that few books ever hope to achieve. As Pony Boy writes in the introduction, “For many [the Native American horseman] represents the ultimate rider. The essence of a horseman, both his skill and intuition, goes beyond the hours he spends in the saddle….the folklore of every Native tribe are stories, tales, and beliefs to exemplify human’s relations to other animals.” The book begins with an analysis of how horses came to live with the Natives of North America and horses’ impact on Native life. The crux of relationship training, according to the author, is to understand “what it means to be a horse, react like a horse, and relate to other things like a horse….” Native Americans were able to create such strong relationship with horses in a short time because they understood that “a horse is a horse.” Learning to balance the relationship between horse and human is the missing link to becoming a masterful horseman or horsewoman. The book describes not only the techniques involved for relationship training but also the belief system and attitude that must be applied to all methods of horsemanship. In addition to presenting the methods and philosophy of relationship training, Horse, Follow Closely also includes many stories and legends of Native Americans and their horses, all of which teach the reader something new about himself and his relationship with his horse.

Die uber 60 hier zusammengetragenen Geschichten zeigen, dass Hunde mit Handicap trotzdem glucklich" sind und ihren Menschen viel Freude bereiten. Dennoch spricht manch einer ihnen das Recht zu leben ab. Dieses Buch beseitigt Zweifel und raumt mit Vorurteilen auf. Hunde mit Handicap sind Kampfer mit dickem Fell und nicht selten echte kleine Stars.
Helping riders develop a deeper understanding of their animals, this newly revised guide reveals how horses' physical traits—from the muzzle, mouth, lips, and nostrils to the eyes, ears, chin, and facial swirls—can influence their behavior and personalities. Offering new profiles, personality evaluations, and helpful photographs to aid the process, the first of three sections teaches owners how to evaluate their horse's character and equine personality based on more than a dozen physical traits. A second section focuses on how health helps determine if the horse's personality has been adversely affected by stress or pain caused by poor nutrition, inadequate living conditions, or a mismatched riding discipline. The final section teaches how to bring out the best in one's equine friends, explaining techniques known as the Clouded Leopard, the Raccoon, and the Flick of the Bear's Paw, among others—all of which encourage bonding with horses to influence their personalities in a positive way for both horse and rider.

Can people have authentic social relationships with speechless animals? What does your dog mean to you, your understanding of yourself, and your perceived and actual relationships with other s and the world? What do you mean to your dog? In Understanding Dogs, sociologist and faithful dog companion Clinton R. Sanders explores the day-to-day experiences of living and working with domestic dogs. Based on a decade of research in veterinary offices and hospitals, dog guide training schools, and obediences classes -- and colored with his personal experiences and observations at and outside home with his own canine companions -- Sanders's book examines how everyday dog owners come to know their animal companions as thinking, emotional, and responsive individuals. Linking animal companionship with social as well as personal identity, Understanding Dogs uses detailed ethnographic data in viewing human and animal efforts to understand, manipulate, care for, and interact with each other. From nineteenth-century disapproval of what was seen as irresponsibly indulgent pet ownership among the poor to Bill Clinton's caring and fun-loving image and populist connection to the "common person" as achieved through his labrador companion Buddy, Sanders looks at how dogs serve not only as social facilitators but also as adornments to social identity. He also reveals how, while we often strive to teach and shape our dogs' behavior, dogs often teach us to appreciate with more awareness a nourishing meal, physical warmth, a walk in the woods, and the simple joys of the immediate moment. Sanders devotes chapters to the specialized work of guide dog trainers; the problems and joys experienced by guide dog owners; the day-to-day work of veterinarians dealing with the healing, death, and euthanizing of their animal patients; and the everyday interactions, assumptions, and approaches of people who choose, for various reasons and in various ways, to spend their lives in the company of dogs. Understanding Dogs will interest those who live and work with animals as well as those studying the sociology of human-animal interactions.
Stress in dogs is an important topic for dog owners no more so than ever before. The most common symptoms of stress are anxiety and aggression.
