It’s Not About Winning

August 20, 2014

I heard it said the other day, “We didn’t go backwards, but we didn’t go forwards either. Some days you win some, some days you lose some.” This was said in regards to a rather touchy colt. He’s probably 60 rides in to his training, and he’s still prone to hog around, bog his head, […]


How To Fasten A Rope Halter

Rope halters have been around for a long time, and they serve a good purpose. When properly adjusted they are designed to contact certain pressure points on your horse’s head and face.  I personally love the feel of a well made rope halter.  Not only are they a means of leading and tying your horse, […]

Parrot Mouth In Horses

I recently experienced my first true exposure to a parrot mouthed horse. I’d heard the term before, and knew what the general meaning was, but I’d never really explored further.  My family has always raised Quarter Horses and it was never an issue that came up. We raised a well bred yearling colt by an […]

TIM: June 22, 2014 Trim # 2 After a month of new growth time and proper feed, Tim was ready for his second trim. He had adapted to normal walking (no high lift on the knees and hocks!) and was bucking and playing in the corral. Obviously, his body and joint stiffness was gone and […]
