For this Winter 2019 issue, I got to try something new. It’s the end of the year, and here I am, throwing a curve ball at you with a new department. It’s no secret to our staff or to our avid online readers that I’m a mama. It’s really what defines me these days, as much as horses once did before I had my daughter three years ago. Times have changed, and instead of spending my nights on the back of a whole herd of 2- and 3-year-old colts, I push my daughter on her swing until my arm aches and cook macaroni and cheese and judge the time passing each weekend by how many times I’ve heard Elsa sing “Let It Go.” But when we aren’t watching “Frozen,” we’re in the…

eyes on the prize

I’VE BEEN SHOWING QUARTER HORSES ALL MY LIFE. Along the way, I’ve learned a lot about what it takes to succeed with horses. My first event, at just 6 years of age, was the local county 4-H show. Roanie, my mount, was a big, unregistered ranch horse, with a head the size of a fishing boat and the scars of living and working on the ranch all over his blue-roan hide. We were a team, though, and devoted to each other. Roanie took his job—taking good care of me—seriously. Together we gathered cattle on the short days, and I learned to lope in a circle (probably not on the correct lead). Our first class was unregistered aged geldings at halter; other classes followed, and Roanie wound up the Reserve Champion Unregistered Horse…

Absorbine Win-A-Day Thanks to the Brad Barkemeyer Win-A-Day Clinic presented by Absorbine and Horse&Rider, Jeremy Spivey got to invite nine of his roping buddies to join him in a full-day clinic with Brad Barkemeyer in Fort Lupton, Colorado, this summer. The group worked on basic horsemanship skills in the morning and upped their game in the team roping arena in the afternoon. Look for the full story in our Spring issue, and be sure to visit our Facebook page to see weekly training videos from the clinic.

#HORSELIFEIRL ktclinebell This nice filly is a good reminder of why I love starting youngsters under saddle. #horsetraining #horselifeirl Tag your Instagram photos #HorseLifeIRL (In Real Life) for a chance to see your post here! FUN ON FACEBOOK We asked the question,"Would You Choose Conformation Over Training in Horse?" Here's what a few of our fans had to say. Arlene Lini Kelemen There's no such thing as flawless conformation or training. You ride the horse you've got today and make the best of it. Sarah Jenkinson You can train a horse and get a lot of pleasure from doing so and build a great relationship. You can’t alter bad conformation. Ashley Yurkovic A horse's training can be developed over time; you can’t change conformation. Conformation can make training harder and can even lead to lameness. Maya Beck Depends on how bad the…
