It’s always a pleasure to have some good news! Here it is:
Moonlight Mesa Associates received notification today that A Beginner’s Guide to Owning a Mule is a finalist in the New Mexico-Arizona Book Awards! The book was entered in the Pets/Animals Division. The title was Moonlight Mesa’s overall best-selling nonfiction book in 2018.
Awards will be announced November 9 in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
MEANWHILE, work has begun on Lee Anderson’s The View From My Saddle. “This book is absolutely amazing,” editor Renee Witty commented. “I learned so much from Lee’s first book (Developing the Art of Equine Communication), but this new book is even more incredible. It’s extremely reader-friendly but also extremely informative.”
The View From My Saddle discusses training techniques as well as the ins and outs of horse equipment with a lot of emphasis on bridle bits. “People will think twice before they stick a bit in a horse’s mouth and jerk on those reins,” Witty said. Anderson also covers the various disciplines as well as the competitive show ring/racing/trail parts of the horse world.

“Lee has been there, done that, and studied these things for decades. Having been an engineer, he is very attuned to how and why things work. This book is a must-read for every equestrian out there!” Renee said.
The publisher, Moonlight Mesa Associates, Inc. hopes to have the book in print and available by January of 2020. Vin Libassi will again do the cover design even though he’s now living in Ecuador. Happily they have internet!
