In the chaotic last days of the war, a small troop of battle-weary American soldiers captures a German spy and makes an astonishing find—his briefcase is empty but for photos of beautiful white horses that have been stolen and kept on a secret farm behind enemy lines. Hitler has stockpiled the world’s finest purebreds in order to breed the perfect military machine—an equine master race. But with the starving Russian army closing in, the animals are in imminent danger of being slaughtered for food.
With only hours to spare, one of the U.S. Army’s last great cavalrymen, Colonel Hank Reed, makes a bold decision—with General George Patton’s blessing—to mount a covert rescue operation. Racing against time, Reed’s small but determined force of soldiers, aided by several turncoat Germans, steals across enemy lines in a last-ditch effort to save the horses.

Linda Hogen
2017, 320 pages, 138 x 206 mm, hardcover
Harry de Leyer first saw the horse he would name Snowman on a truck bound for the slaughterhouse. The recent Dutch immigrant recognized the spark in the eye of the beaten-up nag and bought him for eighty dollars. On Harry’s modest farm on Long Island, he ultimately taught Snowman how to fly. Here is the dramatic and inspiring rise to stardom of an unlikely duo. One show at a time, against extraordinary odds and some of the most expensive thoroughbreds alive, the pair climbed to the very top of the sport of show jumping. Their story captured the heart of Cold War–era America—a story of unstoppable hope, inconceivable dreams, and the chance to have it all. They were the longest of all longshots—and their win was the stuff of legend.

Possessing the right mind-set and relevant mental skills has long been considered vital in achieving top performances in all sports. And yet, to many riders, mental fitness still remains something of an afterthought. In Perfect Mind: Perfect Ride, the author demonstrates how to develop and achieve the right kind of attitude, motivation and mental skills to make the most of the rider's abilities whether it be riding as a recreation or as a competitive sport.
Horses are highly sensitive flight animals - they will react first and ask questions, well, never...! In essence, this means that every time riders get on their horse, they need to be fully committed, aware and in control of their body, their thoughts and their emotions, in order to communicate with their horse in precisely the right kind of manner.

The continuation of the first book Unchaste.

The Horse and His Rider
2015, 144 pages, 147 x 207 mm, hardcover
For years now Linda entertains everyone around with the stories about her intimate life. They are funny, unbelievable ... and greatly unchaste. When Linda's just not experiencing nighttime stories, writes the previous ones. You'll find inside this book the best thing a young journalist from a small Czech town experienced or dreamed about. You will be amused, offended and full of excitement, when the strategy of "use and throw away" ends. Will she be ceased by her fated man who crosses the first and last page? Linda is a loving mother, and the wall she built between the five-years old daughter and her second life, is rapidly thinning.

First published in 1853, "Cavalry: Its History and Tactics" had a major impact on military theorists and officers for decades - it was reprinted as a manual during the American Civil War - and its influence on European cavalry performance can be traced into World War I. It is an intelligent work which discusses the history and development of cavalry over the ages, advocates a program of reform for Britain's horsed troops, and covers many aspects of equipment, training, drill, organization, formation, and battlefield tactics. The author, an experienced and gifted cavalryman, first served in the Austrian army, then joined the British army's 15th Hussars in 1839, fought in India, and became the regimental riding master. Captain Nolan's 1852 tour of European armies, wide reading in many languages, and service in Europe and India makes "Cavalry" an extraordinary statement on mid-19th-century theory and practice. As historian Jon Coulston explains in his introduction, Nolan was writing at the cusp of technological change, drawing upon the experiences of the Napoleonic Wars, continental suppression of the 1848 Revolutions, and Britain's wars in India, but with an eye to firepower developments on the eve of the Crimean War. In 1854, at the Battle of Balaklava, Nolan rode with the written order, which unleashed the Charge of the Light Brigade, an action in which he lost his life.

Horses as maneaters. The incredible friendships between horses and other animals. The stories of men who cares for herds of thousand horses in the midst of an extensive steppes. A testimony about the first horse whisperer, whose "whispered" wild horse follows him as a puppy. The fate of horses, whose courage and intelligence you admire in the fight with wild beasts in arena. Start reading these incredible stories written by an American horse lover more than 170 years ago. The text, which had almost sank into oblivion, yet it is perfect readable, although the translator tried as much as possible to keep its spirit of the times.
