In Properly Storing Gear Part one and Part two, I talked about how my husband and I are very particular about how our gear is stored, and in doing so, we often maximize its lifespan. Consider this an addendum to that blog, but important enough to stand on its own. Let me get up on […]

With summer on the horizon, it’s hot. The DJ on the radio station says it’s hot. The thermometer in the front yard says it’s hot. The meteorologist on the evening news says it’s hot. But even though it’s hot, a horse person has got to ride, right? Don’t let the heat beat your summer riding […]

Cowboys from across the regions of the Western United States all sit in saddles and ride horses to work. But aside from those general similarities, the gear they pack with them all day can vary widely.

When it comes to foals there can be many ups and downs. As horse owners, we can’t help but worry when it comes to foaling. However, most of the time Mother Nature does a great job, and mares and foals are happy and healthy with no assistance from us. These are the kinds of mares and […]

I’ve been on the road a lot this Spring, and it’s not slowing down anytime soon! We thought it would be fun to share with you how to organize your Living Quarters Trailer. Or at least I can share with you how I organize mine. I haven’t yet, sadly, figured out the easiest way to […]
