    Talking Need books suggestions to get Free Shipping on Amazon

    I already have Pippa Funnell's book (Training the young horse) in my list.

    What else would be useful for breeding or training young horses? Or about bloodlines (I have Chris Hector's book already)?

    Or stable management is always a good one too.

    How about this: Equine Breeding Management and Artificial Insemination, by Juan Samper. This has been on my wish list for ages and costs enough that you only need to buy one. Of course, you could buy a Kindle and never worry about shipping books again.

    I was given "Dressage Dreams 10" by Stephen Clarke and it is super.
    It profiles top combo's and their most notable attribute or movement, then breaks them down into individual profiles of rider, trainer and horse providing full bloodlines and histories. Wonderful photos and lots of stallions profiled.

    Do you have this book? Pretty pictures and a reallly good read to boot. I read it over and over
    http://www.amazon.com/Classical-Scho.../dp/1570763747

    This just came in the mail 2 days ago at the recommendation of many on here

    Some of it is a little funny since it's an old book, but I love the common sense approach. It totally takes me back to learning to ride in the late 70s, my first trainer was old school back then. Good book to have in the library.

    Why not just order the book from somewhere else where it's even cheaper? Bookfinder.com says you can get it shipped from the UK to Canada for about $16.

    No, I don't have either ones! How do you like the second one so far?

    I was also thinking maybe a book centered on ground exercises, like lunging. Something extrensive about ponying would be great too... Too many ideas.

    A fiction lit recommendation would be “Half-Broke Horses” by Jeanette Walls. I just read it and it is horsey themed and not horrible.

    Gosh, that, I don't have time for! I have very little time to read so when I do, I want it to be "useful".

    I like the book, but like I said it is a little funny to read because of the style it is written. It is more like a really big textbook with lots of sections, so it's more of a reference guide than a good read.

    I think everyone needs to have Anja Beran's book in their library. I have passed it around my barn. I like the sentiment and philosophy in the book. And really great pictures.

    One book I bought this year on ground work I really don't like, even though it has good reviews. I was disapointed
    http://www.amazon.com/Horse-Training-Hand-Modern-Working/dp/1570764093/

    Would also love anyone elses recommendations on good ground work books.

    You gave the link to the Training Show Jumpers book

    I'd really like to know which one I should steer clear from...

    Any ideas of books on horse business management? I could use that too, would keep me busy daydreaming of getting away from my, albeit very comfortable, desk job.
