Parade Ponies

July 9, 2020
Jolyn Young

I LOVE small town parades, probably because I grew up participating in my hometown’s annual Christmas parade. I usually walked or rode on a float with our 4-H group. I loved wearing a costume that fit with the overall theme; hearing the announcer calling each entry’s name; seeing the other entries’ decorations; waving at spectators, […]

There is a wealth of knowledge available for the intricate and specific needs of many horses along many diverse and particular nutritional circumstances. For these situations, visit with your veterinarian, your feed store and your nutritional expert. This article is our basic and humble feeding program, applying to our wide range of horses; ranging for […]

How do horses show their thresholds to humans’ pressure? Their reactions may show up as: bucking, rearing, freezing their feet, running away, shaking heads, being restless, mouthing lead ropes or bits, pawing or all combinations of these. What do we do to combat these behaviors? We teach patience, trust, and tolerance. How do I teach […]


Joe Wolter Online Learning Opportunity

Joe Wolter is right up there among my favorite of clinicians. He’s awfully down-to-earth and kind while still able to poignantly deliver a message or lesson. He has been able to help me in some of my biggest sticking points with horses over the years, and, if you’ve seen him ride, you know how animated […]


Respect is Always Right with Horses

Respect is always right and everything we do with our horse matters. Have you ever been in a hurry? Maybe you’ve caught your horse without waiting for your horse to respectfully turn, face and walk towards you?  Then you drag your horse to the trailer instead of leading him lightly? Then you load him and maybe […]

I’ve witnessed a wonderful occurrence across Facebook and the internet as schools began closing their doors: online school resources for children. Coloring pages, learning apps that usually cost, virtual zoo and park tours and lives all became available to entertain and teach our children. I’ve been doing the suggested school work with my children, but my […]


Cowboys: a Documentary Portrait Online Streaming

I’m such a proponent of Cowboys: a Documentary Portrait by Bud Force and John Langmore! I’ve seen it in theaters twice now, and I’ve been awaiting (anxiously) the DVD release, and we’ve been offered a treat this weekend only during this COVID lockdown. No going to the theater this weekend. Instead, grill some steaks, have a lovely […]


Rock Party

When I was a kid, my neighbor told me about the rock parties her family used to have. They would invite their friends over, head out back behind the house, and pick rocks from the arena. Ha! I decided to have a rock party with my own kids this past winter, but we didn’t invite […]

It’s been about a year since you’ve heard anything from me on here. It’s been quite a year. My journey has continued, as journeys tend to do. Just not in the direction I had believed it would. When I spoke to you last, it was on my Cottonwood Creek Chronicles page. I’m not on that […]

There is a cowboy music show that is growing in popularity with the working cowboys and cowgirls from near and far. It is called the Outside Circle Show and it is a darn good time had by all who attend. I recently asked a few questions so I could let you know all about it. CS: […]
