Putting a halter on your horse may seem like a simple, no brainer. Put the halter on your horse and go. But, sometimes horses will learn to put their heads up, or take their heads away from you, and otherwise it may have become difficult for you to catch your partner. Well, I’m here to show […]

Swimming your horse in an Aqua-Tread, trotting him for miles in a horse exerciser, or walking him on an incline treadmill are amazing and optimal plans, however, none of these options are at every street corner for our convenience!!

We talk all the time about ways to make good working horses. I have recently been pondering exactly what this means because everyone has a different definition. Here’s my take on how good working horses are made. A few weeks ago we moved a group of cows back home before shipping. The trip itself involved a […]

From pastures to trailers to stalls, would you rather bed your horses in their hay or feed it?

I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’m beyond excited about this story.  Horses simply make our world a better place, and when you have a bond with one like Harry did with his Snowman, it’s hard to beat that match-up.

The following is one of those “just my opinion” pieces, so don’t get your tail in a crack over it if it hits a little close to the target. With that said, here goes. I follow many sites on the internet, both on Facebook and other sources. Most of those sites have something to do […]
