Last year I wrote a couple articles about my young stud horse named Hollywoods Bandit and the events that had taken place in his early years. The first article being https://cavvysavvy.tsln.com/blog/hollywoods-bandit/ And the second article being https://cavvysavvy.tsln.com/blog/hollywoods-bandit-continued/ A lot has happened since the last article about Bandit.

I was looking at a magazine a few days ago and saw a picture of a peacock in full display. They sure are a beautiful bird and fun to look at. I know a couple who had talked about getting peacocks. She wanted some and wanted to raise a few, he said they were dirty, […]

Yesterday bore witness to the cowboy corner of the internet watching a video of a barrel horse that got loose at the Ft.

Jan Swan Wood

Buddy was a big, good looking, gentle, well bred four year old gelding I was riding for my Dad through calving one spring. I’d used him all winter and had packed my little nephew on him and even pulled him in the sled, so he was pretty solid in most ways and really lazy. It […]


Trailer Unloading Woes

January 9, 2019
Savanna Simmons

We were asked, following this blog about building confidence in a horse to step down out of a trailer, what to do if a horse comes out like a rocket. Now that’s a little tricky, because more often than not, horses that speed through backing-or jumping-out of a trailer do so because of a prior […]

I was having a chat with a horseman friend a while back. He’s been at the cowboy and horseman game for many decades, as have I, and we always have lots to visit about. He brought up several points of contention for both of us and suggested I address the points in a column for […]
