Jan Swan Wood

I like horses with a good set of withers. Because of that, I have taken a knife to some saddle pads to accommodate those high withers and keep pressure from the top of them, but that sure is hard to do with what saddle pads cost these days. Plus, it compromises the good qualities of […]

It is already hot and dry here in Gillette, Wyoming. Warm summer temperatures and rain (even a little) means fly season. Our horses are kicking and running from the few flies that are out. We decided it was time to pull out the fly sheets and try to give these horses a little relief. I’m sure […]

Lynn Kohr

Halters to Bits. From the ground up we teach our colts to be soft and give to nose pressure with a halter first before we introduce a snaffle. As our colts accept all of our softening ideas with a halter we add the snaffle. We will put a broken in three-piece snaffle on them for […]

Our family is a busy family, and especially this time of year. Normally we would be attending High School Rodeos, College Rodeos, Barrel Futurities, and Ropings.
