Eric Smiley’s aim is to bring together the mind of the rider with the mind of the horse, while highlighting the key component in their synergy: understanding. How that understanding is acquired, retained, and put to use is the key to success. Where does one find leadership within the equine industry? Does riding require an instructor, a trainer, a coach? Can you effectively learn on your own, with just the occasional directive, and still find personal or competitive success? Smiley, renowned clinician and international team coach, intends to fill the gap when it comes to these questions and others, providing a reliable resource and educational companion for the aspiring equestrian. Smiley addresses fundamental topics pertinent to riders, with philosophical discussion and practical exercises applicable to all levels. Along the way he strives to educate readers on being taught, and perhaps, one day, becoming the teachers.

A story about a boy who was a little too big for his boots … Goliath always knew he was special. He was big. He was brave. He was the strongest. He was different! Convinced that his home had nothing more to offer, Goliath headed out into the world to show everyone what he was really made of. But he didn’t look so brave when confronted with the sea and he didn’t look so big when stood next to the Sun. So what does being big and brave mean? And why was he determined to be that way … ? Critically acclaimed author and illustrator Ximo Abadía explores concepts of boyhood, growing up, learning, and the complexities we all face in search of our place. Abadía’s vibrant colours and distinctive modern style invites a new reading of a traditional story. Goliath is a tale that is sweet, funny and utterly charming.
