When people first began to ride horses, their only piece of equipment was a rudimentary bridle. It was a very long time before the arrival of the saddle, and longer still before the appearance of the stirrup. Nowadays, there is a vast array of equipment and the choice available can make the job of buying tack a daunting one. Here is a comprehensive guide to tack and horse clothing for riders at all levels of horsemanship. With a photographic directory-style approach, the book looks at the complete range of horse equipment item by item: the saddle; the bridle and bit; training aids and gadgets; clothing and protective equipment. Photographs of the available models for each item and clear descriptions of usage help you make an informed choice about what to buy. Different riding activities necessarily make varied demands from the saddlery and equipment, and the appearances and functions of all the different styles are outlined in this book so whatever horse riding activity you hope to pursue, you and your horse have everything you need to ride with safety and success. For novice riders, there are how-to step-by-step sequences on fitting and removing the saddle, bridle and bit, rugs and boots, and instructions on how to care for them to ensure they remain in top condition for many years. Full of expert advice and fascinating historical information, Complete Saddlery & Horse Equipment is an invaluable reference manual for all horse riders.

Polo, horse-racing, show jumping, endurance riding, ploughing, pit ponies, mounted police, carriage driving: all these different activities require different tack. Paula Sells shows how the tack used in 27 different disciplines has become specialised for each. She describes the tack rooms and their contents, conversations with the owners and the history, current status and challenges of each discipline. Each tack room has been selected for its importance in the discipline it represents: Badminton House (Duke of Beaufort's Hunt); the Household Cavalry; the dressage, eventing and racing tack rooms of Carl Hester, Mary King and Andrew Balding. Tack rooms are treasure houses of traditional and innovative modern craftsmanship. The wide range of tack they hold reflects its evolution through our social history and the changing partnerships with horses in modern culture.

Books's matched Remington pistols off his body, Gillom thinks he may be able to ride this spectacle to fame and glory as the last shootist. But Gillom is an eighteen-year-old with lots of growing up to do, and showing off his new pistols quickly gets him into a gunfight he didn't bargain for. Gillom sets out for adventure, determined to become a shootist like his hero, John Bernard Books. On his dangerous journey into manhood, he runs into yellow journalists, a New Mexican horse breaker, and a train robber. When he meets a Hispanic saloon dancer named Anel in the booming copper mining town of Bisbee, Arizona, Gillom Rogers is forced to reconsider what kind of man he really wants to be. Miles Swarthout's The Last Shootist is the sequel to one of the most famous Westerns ever written, and concludes the tale of a junior shootist's coming-of-age in a dazzling gunfight in a deadly pimp's whorehouse, as a trio of fiery teenagers ride hard into a new twentieth century.
