Dear People: We've been brewing this for over a year and it's finally about to be a reality -- my magnum opus!
HORSE CONFORMATION: PRINCIPLES OF FORM & FUNCTION
by Deb Bennett, Ph.D.
3 Volumes --
Volume 1: Developing Your Eye (250 pp.)
Volume 2: Head, Neck, Back, and Teeth (246 pp.)
Volume 3: Forelimbs, Hind Limbs, and Hoofs (394 pp.)
COLOR THROUGHOUT -- Big 8 1/2 X 11" format -- 852 illustrations in total, including
over 400 conformation photos.
This is the best of my collection -- what I believe to be the world's largest collection of conformation photos of good horses belonging to people of ordinary means. You do not have to be a millionaire to find or breed a great horse!
Everybody knows that inflation is a factor these days and that prices on just about everything have gone up. We do not raise our prices; items that sold through our main website 20 years ago for $25 still sell for $25. Pricing on these new volumes reflects increased cost of paper. Vols. I and II sell for $59.95 and the much bigger Vol. III sells for $79.95. We think this is still a great bang for your buck.
And there's more good news. Sometime in the next few weeks every person who has ever registered to use this Forum, and every person who has ever purchased anything from us will receive an Email message inviting you to participate in the pre-sale. Pre-sale participants will receive 20% off the regular prices stated above. Please be on the lookout for this Email -- the subject line will be clearly labeled so hopefully your filter will not regard it as Spam!
When the Emailing goes out, I'll notify you here again.
Meanwhile, you can go see a complete description of all three volumes of "Horse Conformation: Principles of Form & Function" by going to our main website at http://www.equinestudies.org. Click on "bookstore" and then "printed books."
I hope y'all are just as excited about this as I am -- I feel as happy as a school kid who has just gotten a gold star for performance above & beyond the call of duty. At long last, this has been an opportunity for me to get an important job done right!
Cheers, and as always to everybody: thanks for your interest in our work, and happy riding to you. -- Dr. Deb
Hello to Forum participants: Just wanted to let you know, that if you have not yet received our Emailing which tells all about the new book and invites you to receive a 20% discount during the pre-publication sale....it's coming! We have had some technical glitches with it and then my office assistant came down with COVID...she's on the mend today so you should be receiving the messages shortly.
Our apologies if you get two notices. I personally HATE Emails that are trying to sell you something, and getting duplicates is even worse. We have endeavored to remove duplicates from our lists.
When you get your Email from us, if you're interested in the sale, just follow the directions given and there should be no difficulty.
We've had a GREAT response from the Emails that we already sent last week, and I want to express my sincere thanks to all.
If you have any questions, notify us here or else reply to the Email. Cheers -- Dr. Deb
An update on the Emailing: About 2/3rds of our list was sent out yesterday; the other third will follow through the rest of this week. If you have not gotten an Email containing "an invitation from Dr. Deb" by Friday -- and you want to receive one -- write to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll send it to you. The pre-sale discount ends Nov. 20th and I want to be sure to give everybody a chance to get in on it.
Thanks very much to those who have already purchased the book....I am forever grateful to our loyal students and Forum readers. -- Dr. Deb
Mine arrived a couple of days ago. Sat down that evening to quickly look through them. Before I knew it 2.5 hours had passed and past my bedtime! I am an old print industry pro and I have to say these are very nice quality. I am especially impressed with the quality of the photos. Some of those go back many decades but are clear and in focus. Someone spent considerable time on those. Congratulations on this epic undertaking Dr. Deb!
