“Ride With It”

Many of you know my story; some don’t. Over the past five years, I had many curves to follow, but I made it. Through a divorce, my mother’s passing, cancer scare, broken back from being thrown by my show horse, which brought on a battle of anxiety… I’m still here. I’m so blessed to have the support from my dear family, my beloved HPH family, and my most awesomest friends.

Early Training of Young Horses- Imprinting Versus Other Methods

The idea of imprint training is to, in a single session, introduce as many new objects and sensations as possible within the first 24 hours after birth. This might include brushes, halters, clippers, other equipment, and touching of the face, body, legs, and hooves.

After a year like 2020, it’s refreshing to hear that there were some positives that came out of it. When we left Las Vegas last year, the world shut down. Getting back to “normal” will take some more time still and, until then, we have returned to a show, and a world, that is a […]

If the Boot Fits- Can Leg Wraps or Boots Prevent Tendon Injury?

In general, there are three main reasons people might choose to wrap the legs of their horses: external protection, simply for looks, or prevention of tendon injuries. While certainly able to protect from cuts and scrapes or add some flashiness to your look in the Dressage ring, boots and wraps do not provide sufficient support against the forces experienced by an equine limb during exercise.
