    In this utterly original look at our modern "culture of performance," de Zengotita shows how media are creating self-reflective environments, custom made for each of us. From Princess Diana's funeral to the prospect of mass terror, from oral sex in the Oval Office to cowboy politics in distant lands, from high school cliques to marital therapy, from blogs to reality TV to the Weather Channel, Mediated takes us on an original and astonishing tour of every department of our media-saturated society. The implications are personal and far-reaching at the same time.  
    Thomas de Zengotita is a contributing editor at Harper's Magazine and holds a Ph.D. in anthropology from Columbia University. He teaches at the Dalton School and at the Draper Graduate Program at New York University.  
    "Reading Thomas de Zengotita's Mediated is like spending time with a wild, wired friend-the kind who keeps you up late and lures you outside of your comfort zone with a speed rap full of brilliant notions."-O magazine  
    "A fine roar of a lecture about how the American mind is shaped by (too much) media...."-Washington Post

    This E-Book is for all horse owners but especially those whose horses and ponies may not be able to be ridden, either temporarily or permanently, for whatever reason or who chose not to ride, to enable both horse and owner to enjoy a fulfilling relationship.
    
    Most of the time we just turn up at the yard, do the jobs we need to do, catch our horses, groom them, tack them up and ride – why not become a bigger part of their lives, create a better bond and understanding and take some of the pressure of yourself!
    
    All of the activities are designed to enable you to develop a much better relationship with your horse and are all based on the principle that our horses and ponies are and always should be seen as our friends and partners.
