For All The Kids Who Did Not #GetThatGlobe

For All The Kids Who Did Not #GetThatGlobe

By Michelle Bowman For all the kids who did not #GetThatGlobe, I see you. I was you. I know how incredibly hard you worked to get to the world show. All the shows that it took to qualify to compete. All the practices and preparation to be ready. All the little details that you finessed […]

EC Blog – Bell and Me

A short meeting in 1982 between Don Everett and Wayne Bell becomes the birth of the custom flatbed industry and the legendary 40-year history of Western Hauler, Inc. By Don Everett “Niche” is a buzz word those self-starters and entrepreneurs overuse. “Find your niche,” they spout when advising the up-and-comers how to set the world […]

From Oops Baby to Overall High Point Champion

  By Abbie Luther Everyone loves a feel good story, and this is definitely one of them. Echo is known as the ”oops baby.” A $900 grade Appaloosa pony ended up with your average quarter horse that was not gelded. The barn drew straws on who would call my mother and break the news.  11 […]

Youth Are The Future

I can still remember my first open show at age 7.  I slept in my show clothes because I was so afraid, I would not wake up in time, only to not sleep a single minute that night from sheer excitement.  My mom French braided my hair so tight, that it hurt to think and […]

Why Am I Here Again? A Heartfelt Amateur Blog

By Wendy Brown This ridiculously expensive, time sucking hobby is NOT for the faint of heart. It will take a toll on your skin and bones. It will damage your bank account and potentially take you away from family who may begin to wonder if you love your horse more than them. It will test […]

Seeing a Trend: Oversimplified Patterns?

Seeing a Trend: Oversimplified Patterns?

As an amateur and long-time showman, I personally prefer a pattern that has at least enough difficulty that I feel I’m able to exhibit the hard work that has gone into training and preparing my horse, and that I can get my monies worth. By showing at breed shows, I expect a higher level of challenge than I would see at an open show. I don’t believe I’m alone in this. Horsemanship patterns should ask for more than what a Western Pleasure class asks for on the rail. Equitation should ask for more than a Hunter Under Saddle class. Showmanship should have at least one pivot. I don’t believe that novice classes should exhibit on the exact same patterns, or almost identical, to an amateur or older youth. In my humble opinion, there should be some additional challenge to the patterns in an amateur or older youth class. An amateur pattern shouldn’t look like a walk-trot pattern with a lope portion added.

The last award he received was two days before he passed away. It’s one of the highest awards a Pinto can receive- the Pinto Supreme Championship award. He will be missed and will always have a special place in our hearts.

Do What You Can Afford to Do

If you buy into this industry, it’s an investment. The horse is most often the cheapest part of the equation. It leads to a barn or board, a truck, a trailer, a property, and a lot of life choices to make it work in between- especially having family and friends who support your personal goals. Again, in realizing this, I reiterate. Do what you can afford to do.

If You Give a Kid a Pony…

If you give a kid a pony, they will need a saddle to go with it. You’ll buy them the best saddle you can afford, and then they will probably want a bridle, and a saddle pad, and some boots too…
