Whether standing in a courtroom or a corral, there are very few horsemen who can tell a story like Steve Edwards. In recent years, his love of wild horses has led him to develop the largest herd of Registered American Indian Horses on the entire east coast. Steve's unique riding program teaches natural horsemanship to children as young as five years old. In person or on a DVD, Steve communicates as well with kids as he does with horses. This poignant book, filled with warmth and humor, shows how natural horsemanship improves the lives of Steve's horses and his students. Hidden among his recounting of the accomplishments of his young riders is a detailed discussion of natural horsemanship. The training of horses is an inherently dangerous activity, and that danger is heightened when children participate in the process. Such activities should only be conducted by trained professionals.

A Guide to Natural Horse Boarding
Author: Jaime Jackson
Publisher: J Jackson Pub
Paddock Paradise (PP) is both a book title and a concept of a more naturalized way of horse keeping based upon the research done on the Great Basin wild horses by natural horse care expert and author, Jaime Jackson. PP is a must-read for any horse-owner or professional who wants to create an environment of more optimal mental and physical health for their horses while drastically reducing the number of hours spent on 'barn' chores. Jackson explains to readers why the concept works and how to create one in a simple and inexpensive manner. Not only do horses exercise more but also eat in the manner that nature intended . Research has shown that free-roaming horses are healthier than stabled ones but many kinds of pasture grasses can cause laminitis. PP is the solution for these issues and others that plauge horse owners around the world. "PP is an emerging trend," according to a summer 2011 issue of "The Horse" magazine.

The Woodbrook Hunt Club, cofounded in 1926 by Maj. J. H. Mathews and Thornwood Estate superintendent Thomas Bryan, is the oldest fox-hunting club west of the Mississippi. Horses have long played an important historical role on the prairies south of Tacoma. The Nisqually Indians were the first to ride horses on the Nisqually Prairie in the early 1800s, followed by the Hudsons Bay Company and horse-race activities in the 1840s. The establishment of Fort Lewis in 1917 has protected this unique prairie ecosystem, resulting in a longstanding partnership with the Woodbrook Hunt Club. Today the club continues its rich tradition on the last remaining three percent of native prairie in the Puget Sound Corridor.
