Falling for Fallacies: Misleading Commonplace Notions of Dressage Riding

Falling for Fallacies: Misleading Commonplace Notions of Dressage Riding
The world of modern dressage includes a broad canon of doctrines that are rarely if ever questioned. Despite their constant use, many riders are confused by the exact meanings and implications of numerous terms and approaches. What does it really mean, for instance, to drive the horse “onto the bit?” Does a stronger application of the rider’s aids really encourage the horse to place its hind legs further under its body? Is the term collection” really synonymous with the increased forward engagement of the hind legs under the center of balance? This complete review of every aspect of dressage provides a thorough investigation and a critical analysis of the anatomical and biomechanical aspects of riding. It offers a long-overdue explanation of the sense and nonsense of commonly-used training doctrines and reveals prejudices in order to support the art of horse-orientated equitation.

Four-Footed Ministers: Their Theology of Presence

While research has confirmed the beneficial effects of interaction with dogs, there have been no studies that present a structure/model for how canine companions might be integrated into the spiritual lives of human beings. This book presents a structure/model for this type of ministry/pastoral and spiritual care. Dr. Stephen Webb states This book is revolutionary. Both theologically and scientifically grounded, it could start a whole new discipline in seminary education. Pet facilitated therapy is becoming a major topic of interest in secular circles, but it has not made its way into pastoral care. This book is an instruction manual in how to use dogs with the elderly but it is also much more than that. It is personally inspiring and spiritually enriching. Every educator in pastoral care programs should read it. Let the movement begin Stephen H. Webb, Professor of Religion and Philosophy, Wabash College, Crawfordsville, IN.
