In horseback riding, body alignment and balance is everything. Featuring easy step-by-step instructions, this guide takes some of the most important yet basic principles of riding and makes them simple, showing riders of all skill levels how to eliminate unconscious restrictions and use their bodies to achieve a higher level of performance.
5 minutes a day is all the time you need to achieve: • Better balance in the saddle • Improved body control from head to toe • Increased influence with your seat • Flawless leg position and subtle aiding • Quieter, softer hands and contact your horse can trust • Less physical stiffness, tension, and riding-related pain • Confidence in your ability to communicate with your horse! PLUS, in just 5 minutes you can improve a horse that's: • Unwilling to go forward or "dead" to the leg • Hollow-backed, high-headed, or above the bit • Heavy on the forehand and unbalanced • A chronic "puller," "leaner," or "head-tosser"! Start or end your riding sessions with Wendy Murdoch's 5-Minute Fixes, and you'll be amazed how quickly you can replace old habits with new ones, get out of your "riding rut," and transform what you can't do into what you can do…naturally, capably, comfortably, and consistently alongside a happy riding partner—your horse.
Many if not most women have been locked in a battle with their bodies for as long as they can remember. And when it comes to riding horses, they drag their arsenal of self-doubt with them every time they step into the saddle. Some quit riding completely. Others ride, but are frustrated by their lack of progress as riders or what they see as poor performance. They succumb to silent self-torment as they wonder how they look, what others think, and whether they have any business on the back of a horse if their jeans feel a little too tight. Regardless of seat size, riding discipline, or the degree — or even truth — of the body issues with which they struggle, the scars on female self-image in our society run deep and wide. So with the humor and big-sisterly swagger that readers and reviewers have come to love, Melinda Folse, author of bestseller The Smart Woman’s Guide to Midlife Horses, has decided to step in with a delightful, insightful, fulfilling new book. Riding Through Thick and Thin delves to the bottom of the issues that have long held women hostage, bringing together experts, research, resources, and stories to encourage, inspire, and empower. Readers will find some answers that may surprise them: Believe it or not, this is not about losing weight or getting fit (although if that’s a point of interest, there’s a section packed with helpful tools and ideas). This book is more about what’s going on in every woman’s mind — and it taps new findings in neuroscience to reveal that permanent change to deeply ingrained body image issues is not only possible, but it may be much easier than we think.

Spring 1993. 14 months earlier the USSR had collapsed and with Russia accessible once more Gregory Yeoman and his expedition companions set off on their bicycles to ride from the Baltic to the Pacific.

'Riding into the Sunrise' is the story of their journey, the Trans-Siberian Cycle Expedition. 8304 miles through steppe, mountains, forest and swamp, spurred on by mental and physical will power, curiosity and a tremendous sense of adventure.

Almost all of you would have been on a bicycle at some point. Sadly, as with most childhood friends with whom we have lost touch, relating to bicycles as an adult can be an awkward challenge. Simply knowing how to ride a bike is not enough. Bicycles have adapted, matured and, for the most part, gotten better with technological developments. Yet we have come across so many unable to relate to this old friend - a machine that admittedly looks like it went through at least two makeovers during the authors' own lifetimes. Other obstacles to developing a new relationship with bikes as an adult can include changes in our own bodies, medical conditions, and mental blocks. This book will address these and other questions and take you a step closer to incorporating cycling in your life. Additionally, it will help you gain a better understanding of design changes in the modern bicycle, and simplify the process of selecting, riding and maintaining your bicycle.We believe that a lot of great things happen out of the comfort zone. This is especially true in sports, where comfort or the lack of it is very tangible, so to speak. When you exercise or exert yourself, the discomfort is very real: muscle soreness, heavy breathing, sweating, and what have you. Luckily, the results you get from persisting with cycling are also very tangible. We tell you all about the great benefits in this book. We were lucky enough to have mustered the escape velocity it takes to move from our couches and get on the saddle, and we hope to pass to the reader some of that escape velocity to break away from the comfort zone!Having been riders and competitors ourselves and having worked in the cycling industry with some of the biggest brands and pro cyclists and interacted with riders of all ages and sizes, we want to give back to the community. Between the two of us, we have been to the largest bike expos, seen the world's most important races, gone on countless glamorous and not so glamorous bike trips, met inspiring and crazy people, and worked our legs and lungs dry - to come out infinitely richer at the end. This book is a tribute from us to the cycling community at large - a very special group of people from whom we learned valuable life lessons. The book is meant as a handbook or reference for the basic questions a beginner might have about cycling and is divided into three main sections: 'Before Buying Your Bike', 'Before Your First Ride' and 'Becoming A Seasoned Rider'. You may be in any of these phases, so dive in wherever you think best suits your current experience and skill level. Then the book dovetails into a sample 50 km training plan that you can tweak to your needs. We close with the recommendations section, where we have curated a list of books and movies that influenced us the most.Last, but not least, the foreword to Escape Velocity is written by a very special young man from the pro cycling world: Victor Campenaerts. Victor is a 27-year-old Belgian pro cyclist. He was the Belgian and European Under-23 road time trial champion in 2013. Since that year, he became the men's time trial champion in the Belgian and European championships twice. On 16 April 2019, at the Aguascalientes Bicentenary Velodrome in Aguascalientes, Mexico, Victor broke the hour record (longest distance cycled in one hour), riding 55.089 km, surpassing Bradley Wiggins' mark of 54.526 km, a record that Wiggins held for nearly 4 years. Hence, at the time of publishing, Victor Campenaerts is the fastest man in the world.
