Each hoof will touch down independently, giving the four “beats.” The term “lateral” indicates that both left side legs will move and then both right (or vice versa). This is in contrast to some other animals, such as salamanders, which move at a “walk” with diagonally paired leg movements.

“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.

Silver Lining at the Silver Dollar- Daily Stride #4

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 Loving Memory of The Snooty Fox (1991-2020)

As I have tried to process it all, I can’t help but feel maybe Snooty knew all along.

Multi-Breed Events- The Shows of the Future?

The number of competitive equestrians who currently own or are actively seeking to own horses with multiple registries has grown significantly within the last five years. In addition, trainers all over the country have horses of multiple breeds within their programs. In the past, I know of many trainers, who really remained faithful to a single breed association of horses and/or client base.
