Summary

The Paraendurance takes place in the countryside along trails where the competitions are tested, judged and regulated by the FISE which is affiliated to the International Equestrian Federation (FEI) which, in turn, recognizes the FISE as the only representative of Equestrian Sports in Italy. The main goals for the riders who practice Paraendurance are: to facilitate socializing, to stimulate the awareness of one’s surroundings, to favour personal gratification, to get used to physical fatigue in order to train and better motion efficiency, to improve mingling and communicating with others through the care and attention given to one’s own horse. 
The therapeutic use of the horse in the rehabilitation of mental disorders basically implies that the relationship in itself becomes the functioning instrument. This relationship is largely based on becoming aware of the other being different from one’s own self which puts into motion the process of “taking care of” by acquiring a deep ethological knowledge that will allow a true and correct communication with the horse. The psychic effort involved in reasoning out someone’s else mind functioning takes the name of meta-cognition, but in dealing with psychotic or cognitive disorders this ability fails. 
On the other hand, the relationship with the horse, the level of being in tune with it and the ability to understand it represent the main focus in building a successful combined pair within a discipline such as the Endurance. It is at this point therefore, that the Paraendurance becomes a logical sport evolution for the rehabilitation treatment of many disorders and in particular the ones of psychic nature.

    ‘There were always just the two of them, Robert and Liam, and there wasn’t one weekend when Robert went racing that Liam wasn’t with him.  They were a formidable force, and Robert only needed Liam in his corner, he didn’t need anyone else.’Louise Dunlop, Robert’s widow    When road racing fan Liam Beckett offered a young Robert Dunlop the use of a workshop at his house in Ballymoney, he didn’t realise that that it would change both of their lives forever. Beckett went on to become Dunlop’s right-hand man. For more than twenty years, he was mechanic, mentor, fixer, friend, practically family. Together, they lived an extraordinary adventure, one that took Robert from a virtual unknown to one of the most exciting and successful road racers of his generation. Now, for the first time, Beckett talks candidly about their incredible partnership – the struggle to get Robert to believe in himself, the long nights spent perfecting the bikes, life on the road and in the paddock and Dunlop’s determination to race and win, often against terrifying odds. Beckett was at Dunlop’s side every step of the way, for his victories at the North West 200 and the Ulster Grand Prix, for his incredible fight to race again after his near-death crash at the Isle of Man TT, and for the terrible crash that tragically cut Dunlop’s life short in 2008.A riveting behind-the-scenes book about Robert Dunlop – not to be missed.

    Bowling is a favorite pastime for millions of families, and since its 1960s and '70s heyday has come to seem quintessentially American. Yet in Egypt as early as 3200 BC.,and Europe as far back as 300 A.D.,games were played in which a ball was rolled in an attempt to knock down objects, suggesting that bowling might well be the world's oldest sport. Arriving in America in colonial times as an outdoor lawn game, and becoming an indoor pastime for the working classes with the influx of immigrants in the late 1800s, by the twentieth century bowling had evolved into the sport as we know it, which today is played at least once a year by 100 million people globally. Sportswriter and bowling historian Mark Miller takes readers on a fully illustrated journey into this beloved sport, revealing bowling's ancient origins, celebrating its heyday in the late twentieth century and charting its current revival, and capturing the spirit of the game and those who play it.

    The latest edition of this bestselling biography as Luca Caioli continues to follow his most controversial subject yet - Barcelona, Uruguay and former Liverpool forward Luis Suárez.
    Appearing to be an almost entirely reformed character, having scored an astonishing 31 times in 2013/14 as Liverpool narrowly missed out on their first league title in decades, Suárez dramatically regressed in the World Cup of 2014. One moment of madness, biting Italy's Giorgio Chiellini, saw these favourable comparisons to Messi and Ronaldo once again overshadowed by those with Jekyll and Hyde.
    Acclaimed football biographer Luca Caioli provides an in-depth look at one of football’s most enigmatic characters, as he attempted to shift the focus back towards his football with Barcelona in the 2014/15 season.
