LIFE

through the

Eyes

of a

PUP

by Crystal Lyons

love how God reveals His love for us through our animals, truths that we can be so blind to, though they are open before our eyes. An 8 week old American Bulldog came into my hands and I took him with me as I walked on my neighbor’s ranch. I’ve named him Ruger and as pups do, he followed right on my heels….so close that I often had to watch not to step on him. Ruger was raised in town and up until now, had only experienced being inside a house or a small yard. I was walking out into a world he didn’t know existed! I took care to walk where he didn’t experience prickly pear or other painful things, but before long we encountered……COWS. Up until this time, Ruger didn’t give enough space between him and I that you could hardly put 2 fingers between…..but when he saw that GIANT in our midst……..!!! All of a sudden, Ruger’s attention left me as his vision was glued to this alien thing towering over us, and more terrifying than that….it was honed in on HIM! Instantly he left the proximity to me that closely related to Velcro, and began moving away, terrified by the cow’s size and obvious ability to squash him! I quickly moved to his aid and grabbed him up before momma could act out what was clearly in her mind to do. But the funny thing was. His response to my voice and his name was so instantaneous UNTIL he felt imminent danger….and suddenly, he became deaf! How well that pictures what we do! I can hear God’s voice until FEAR takes over and then I become oblivious to anything but the object of my fear! I thought about all this as I carried my precious little guy to the other side of all the cows. It was so easy to put myself in his place and realize his probable thought process through this experience. He has only been with me for a hand full of days. That cow looked WAAAAAY bigger and more powerful than me. How was he to know that I am so much more superior to cows? He hasn’t walked with me long enough to know! What he doesn’t know yet is, at this point, his ONLY defense is to stay in my shadow. The WORST thing he could do in that situation was exactly what he DID…..move away from me! Aren’t we just like this? We allow distance to come between us and the Lord because we don’t fully trust Him and our eyes have become overwhelmed by the largeness of our enemy. Our perception always gets distorted when we lose sight of the Master, not to mention how “deafness” seems to come with a distorted view. The smartest thing we can learn in life is…the ONLY safe place to walk through this world….is where Jesus is LEADING! This world is a DANGEROUS place and Ruger’s destiny (as well as our own) can NOT be experienced in the safety of a small back yard. He’s gotta learn about skunks and snakes, horses, wild hogs…..and cows! That’s why he’s got to grow in his relationship with me. And in like manner, that’s exactly why we’ve got to grow in our relationship with the Lord! Are we gonna experience bumps, bruises and get chili rolled a few times? Certainly! But through it all….we learn to stay on the right path and trust the One Who is superior to anything that seeks to take us out!

Want the BEST HOOF CARE possible? CONTRACTED HEELS can be caused by improper

trimming and shoeing….or no farrier services. In most of our articles on various shoeing topics, we talk about conformation first. The conformation of the horse will dictate how the hoof will land while the horse is in motion, whether it be at a walk or run. Our teaching program called the “6 Steps to Balancing the Hoof and Horse and for Sound Shoeing” plays an important role in providing the best support for the horse. After all the purpose of shoeing the horse is, “To keep the boney column in alignment so when the hoof strikes the ground, the entire boney column, including the spine, equally absorbs the concussion.” These two are the basis of the continuing education we offer and is the basis of every evaluation made on horses brought to the center. Without a true and understandable evaluation, the farrier cannot apply his knowledge towards successful results and in return explain his work to the horse owner.

Contracted Heels on a front hoof

Contracted heels can be caused when a foot or portion of the foot is not bearing its share of weight, causing it to shrink, become thin. It can be caused by lack of moisture, poor circulation due to lack of exercise. Contraction may be in one foot or both feet. It may be on one side or both sides of the foot. Neglected or irregular maintenance, trimming and/or shoeing and even improper shoeing can cause contracted heels. Contracted heels are on a hoof where the buttresses are closer together than normal and a frog that is smaller than normal. The bars are attached to what we call a fish hook at the buttress. The heels, at the buttress, are about 1 ½ inches in width, when there should actually be 3” wide across.

This shoe is the correct shape the hoof SHOULD BE

After a trim. Many trims will be needed over time to get it back to normal

Grass Founder

Written By Tom Lenz, DVM, MS Spring might be the best time of the year, but if we have horses that are prone to developing grass founder, this season may be the beginning of serious problems for some of our horses. Horses that are over the age of 10, easy keepers, overweight or cresty-necked seem especially vulnerable to grass founder and should be the focus of founder prevention. Laminitis or founder, as it is commonly called, is inflammation of the laminae of the horse’s foot. Laminae are the delicate, accordion-like tissues that attach the inner surface of the hoof wall to the coffin bone (the bone in the foot). The sensitive laminae interlock with insensitive laminae lining the hoof, much like interlocking fingers to keep the coffin bone in place within the hoof. A horse suffering from laminitis experiences a decrease in blood flow to the laminae, which in turn begin to die and separate. The final result is hoof wall separation, rotation of the coffin bone and extreme pain. In severe cases, the coffin bone will actually rotate through the sole of the horse’s hoof where it becomes infected and can ultimately end in the horse having to be euthanized. Laminitis is triggered by repeated concussion on hard ground (road founder), grain overload, retained placenta, hormonal imbalance (Cushing’s syndrome), certain drugs (corticosteroids), obesity and lush grass. In cases of grass founder, the sugar fructans produced by rapidly growing grass stimulates an overgrowth of bacteria in the horse’s large intestine. The bacteria produce and release toxins (endotoxins) that are carried by the bloodstream to the foot where they cause damage to the laminae and small blood vessels. Veterinarians and nutritionists have known for some time that plants store energy in their seeds in the form of starch that can cause laminitis if the horse is introduced to grain too quickly or eats too much grain. Only recently have researchers discovered that grasses not only store energy in their seed heads, they store energy in their roots, leaves and stems as fructan. If during the warm spring daylight hours rapidly growing grass produces more energy than it needs, it stores the excess as fructan. The fructan is converted back to energy that is required for growth at night or on cloudy days. In the spring when there are sunny days followed by cool nights, the grass stores large amounts of fructan in the stems, especially the portion of the stem near the ground. Later in the year, when the daylight and nighttime temperatures, are more consistent, most of the fructan produced by the plant during the day is used up each night. This new information not only helps us understand that cause of grass founder but also provides us with a number of strategies to reduce the intake of fructans by grazing horses. To avoid grass founder: Keep your easy keepers and ponies off lush, fast-growing pastures until the grass has slowed in growth and produced seed heads. VOLUME 3 | ISSUE 2 2017

Graze your horses on pastures containing a high percentage of legumes, such as alfalfa or clover as they do not contain fructan. Avoid grazing horses on pastures that have been grazed very short during the winter. Keep cresty-necked, overweight horses in the stall or paddock until the pasture’s rate of growth has slowed, then introduce them to the pasture slowly. Allow the horse to fill up on hay before turning out on grass for a few hours. I have a horse that is prone to founder in the spring, so I place a grazing muzzle on him before turnout. I believe this is the best way to reduce the risk of founder as it allows the horse to exercise but prevents it from eating too much grass. ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Thomas R. Lenz, DVM, M.S., Diplomate of the American College of Theriogenologists, is a trustee of the American Horse Council, past chairman of AQHA’s research committee and past president of the American Association of Equine Practitioners.

a little more W

hen I teach advancing clinics, it’s centered on refinement, softness, collection and performance. To obtain these goals, I encourage participants to begin using their legs in conjunction with their hands to create added softness and responsiveness in their horse’s body. If you are only using your hands, there is a tendency for horses to get stiff and bracy. Eventually you can run out of brakes! It’s then we resort to a harsher or severe bit in hopes of regaining the suppleness that we once had with our horse. Your legs might be an untapped resource that can help create the feel that you are looking for with your equine partner. Here’s a simple way to get started. Pick up on the reins as if you were going to begin to back up. Now press with your heel, or spur, until your horse takes some type of backward step. Don’t pull harder on the reins. Simply block forward movement. It is possible your horse will be confused at first. Set it up and wait. When you get some kind of movement in the reverse direction, release. As one horseman put it, “Put them in a bind and then show them a way out.” Now your legs will start to have some meaning as they work in conjunction with your hands. By incorporating your legs, it will lessen the need to pull harder on the reins to develop the desired response. Using this method can lighten a horse that moves backwards with sluggishness and resistance. The movement that should be used with your spurs is not poking or jabbing. Rather, it is a press and release technique. Poking and jabbing at your horse’s belly will likely cause negative reactions and crankiness rather than the response that you are hoping to obtain. With a young or green horse, I will be very smooth and gentle with 12

these cues. If you begin with extreme intensity with your spurs, at best you’re going to scare and confuse your horse. At worst you might get bucked off! With an older horse that is extremely bracy I can be firmer with my cues and get his attention. The principle of being firm as necessary yet gentle as possible always holds true. When incorporating your legs, you are also encouraging your horse’s back or top-line to come up. A hollow backed horse is not in an athletic frame and is not prepared for any kind of performance. A horse’s back must come up to attain good posture and be in a position to perform higher-level maneuvers. You are also likely to experience the added benefit of a horse getting softer in his face. As the back comes up and his feet free up with impulsion, your horse will have a tendency to break at the pole and be in a more collected frame. If we communicate clearly and consistently, our horses have the ability to separate and distinguish between even the most similar subtle cues. Just like learning to speak English, some words sound a lot like other words. However, as we get more understanding about the language, we begin to separate their meaning in the context in which they are used. We all use our legs to ask our horse to go forward. Yet, we can also use our legs to ask them to back up. Much of the differentiation comes from the shift in your body weight. When going forward the life comes up and forward in your body. When you’re thinking about backing up, shift your weight back, rotating your pelvis down into your saddle. More life, greater impulsion, vertical flexion and a soft feel in your horse’s face. These are just a few of the benefits to be gained as you begin to incorporate your legs in these various maneuvers.

LEG With Richard Winters Horsemanship

Incorporating your legs along with your hands in the back-up creates a softer and energetic response.

Your spur should press and release, poke.

Using your leg will help your horse pick up their back and soften in the pole.

Stacy Westfall returns for 2017 ALABAMA HORSE FAIR

Internationally known trainer headlines annual horse expo at Garrett Coliseum (Columbiana, AL) - Popular trainer and YouTube sensation Stacy Westfall returns to Montgomery for the 2017 Alabama Horse Fair. Held March 4-5 at Garrett Coliseum, the annual event draws horse owners and enthusiasts from across Alabama and the region. The Alabama Horse Fair includes riding demonstrations and entertainment, educational workshops for horse owners, drill team and trail obstacle competitions, and the largest horse-related tradeshow in the state. Presented by the Alabama Horse Council, the 2017 Fair runs 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. both days. Admission to the event is $15 Saturday and $10 Sunday, with free admission for kids 6 and under. Joining Stacy in the Coliseum arena are horsemanship trainer Carson James, gaited horse specialist Michael Gascon, and mule trainer Steve Edwards. Cowgirl and Christian music artist Crystal Lyons will lead the Sunday morning Cowboy Church as well as perform throughout the weekend. Crowd-favorites at Crawford Arena include the drill team competition Saturday and the trail obstacle challenge Sunday. Returning for the fourth year is the popular Show-Me barn featuring hands-on demonstrations on better horse health and management. Stacy Westfall first appeared at the Alabama Horse Fair in 2007, shortly after her championship win in freestyle reining at the All-American Quarter Horse Congress and becoming the first woman to win the Road to the Horse colt starting competition. Stacy’s famous bareback and bridleless championship rides have been viewed millions of times and featured on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. She is an inductee of the National Cowgirl Hall of Fame and a regular contributor for several western horse magazines. In addition to her demonstrations, Stacy’s husband, Jesse, will introduce the Alabama Horse Fair crowd to the sport of reining. Carson James started riding professionally at age 15 and currently splits his time between teaching horsemanship clinics and training horses with the techniques he has learned through a lifetime of ranch riding. Carson uses traditional Vaquero-style training methods made popular by natural horsemanship trainers like Tom Dorrance and Ray Hunt. VOLUME 3 | ISSUE 2 2017

Gaited horse specialist and national champion trainer Michael Gascon is known for his electric performances and demonstrations of the versatile Paso Fino horse. Based in Southern Mississippi, Michael comes from a long line of successful horse trainers. Though he is a relative newcomer to the horse fair circuit he already has several sold out clinics on his 2017 schedule. Mule expert Steve Edwards is returning to the Alabama Horse Fair by popular demand. Steve drew large crowds in his 2016 appearances at the fair, helping to dispel the myth that “mules are stubborn.” Steve’s demonstrations and workshops include mule training techniques as well as saddle fit and effective bridling and biting. For more information about the Alabama Horse Fair, including a schedule of events, go to www.alabamahorsecouncil.org. About the Alabama Horse Council. The Alabama Horse Council (AHC) is a non-profit organization that impartially represents all of Alabama’s horse industry.

Western Dressage: PREPARING to SHOW Dressage is for every rider and any horse, no matter what age, level of education, and what your goals may be. It is simply a natural training method for the horse and rider that leads to great success. So if you are a western rider, dressage training will help you bring out the best in your horse and you as a rider. Western Dressage is a huge step in the right direction to improve the western rider’s education and skills. Be careful if you try to ride a dressage test; you will get hooked because it is so much fun. Now that you have studied some of my suggestions about getting yourself ready for the show ring, let’s focus now on the horse. Keep the following in mind as you prepare for your first Western Dressage show. 1. Train with patience and understanding about your horse as an individual and not just comparing him to other horses. 2. Understand what is required in each level and test. Know your horse’s confidence level and how he will handle what would be asked for in a test. Aim for willingness and consistency.

By Lynn Palm 3. Evaluate your horse’s fitness. Become educated so you know what is your horse’s best weight and muscle tone. 4. Evaluate your horse’s soundness, both his overall soundness and the soundness of his legs and feet. Know and work closely with your vet and blacksmith so that your horse is healthy and sound. It takes a great deal of knowledge and time to make sure your blacksmith is trimming or shoeing your horse correctly and for your vet to know this too. Aim to keep the limbs of the horse sound without medications if possible.

9. Prepare your tack and clothes ahead of time, and know how long it takes you to get ready. You can rehearse at home. 10. Make packing lists for horse feeding and care, tack to show in, and clothes you wear to compete in. This will keep you from worrying that you’ll forget something. 11. Make travel plans and time lines of when you are going and for how long. 12. Prepare your vehicle and trailer for safe travels. Please refer to our traveling DVDS available on the website.

5. Set time lines for you and your horse to prepare for yearly goals. Set them and if you are not reaching them, reevaluate them without getting upset and taking it out on the horse.

13. Decide with confidence, excitement and what I call “the eye of the tiger,” to go to the show and have a great time and success.

6. Don’t give in to peer pressure. Don’t let others, such as family members, friends, trainer/coach, or other competitors talk you into thinking that you need to do more then you are capable of doing or want to do. Don’t attempt to reach goals your horse isn’t ready to handle. Stay on a realistic path and set achievable goals.

I hope these tips will give you confidence and encouragement to show. Your horse will tell you if he’s not ready by a poor responses if the challenge is too difficult for him. So listen to your horse and go for it. Get out there and tell your friends: Dressage is for everyone in the horse world!

7. Prepare for your show at home. Find out exactly what you need to do in order to sufficiently warm up to practice for the level you plan to show in. 8. Prepare the warm-up you will do before you enter the ring. Practice what to do and what direction to turn down the center line to start your test.

PALM PARTNERSHIP TRAINING ™ Building a Partnership with Your Horse We would love to have you come ride with us. We love to share our dressage backgrounds and knowledge with you.

Trail of the MONTH

Keeping Trails Open – Chickasaw State Park KEEPING PARADISE POSSIBLE Paradise. For some that’s an image of a tropical beach, for me it’s a dirt trail that twists and meanders to a backcountry camp deep in the wilderness. It’s a quiet solitude punctuated by the peaceful clip clop of hooves and the far scream of an eagle aloft. It’s the sweet perfume of pine on a warm summer day. It’s the companionship of a trusted horse who will faithfully take you home. Unfortunately, in a growing number of cases paradise has been padlocked. In only a few short generations we’ve “improved” a lot of backcountry and rural areas into suburbia and shopping malls. Trail Closed signs are both dreaded and unfortunately frequently encountered. Least we lose them, we’d better take care of the equine friendly country that remains. Paradise needs protecting. You don’t have to be a trail rider, or even have your own horse, to recognize the importance of conserving horse trails. There are many things that each of us can do to preserve equine trails. Here’s an easy way to help.

VOLUNTEER It’s not forest elves that are magically keeping your trails open. Budget cuts have slashed maintenance efforts on public lands. Most trail maintenance is done by volunteer organizations such as your state’s Horse Council, or your local Back Country Horsemen chapter. Organizations such as these are a loud voice for horse riders across the nation. They protect riding trails and wild lands, take volunteers out to maintain trails, and promote equestrian activities as a healthful and enjoyable way to explore the outdoors. You can help by joining these organizations. There are many great reasons to connect. To give back to your trails; the fun, the folks you meet, and the skills you’ll learn along the way. Amazing, hard-working volunteers are why trail maintenance programs can accomplish so much for horse trails every year. My first volunteer trail project was with the Tahoma Chapter of the Back Country Horsemen of Washington in 2009. I helped build a new section of the Pacific Crest Trail. Dozens of concerned and committed BCHW volunteers helped move ¼ mile of the PCT away from the side of a road. My volunteer experiences have been magnificent. Yours will be too. Despite popular belief, the ability to enjoy horse trails is not free. Countless hours are spent meeting, planning, and advocating for every precious foot of trail that gets built and for every acre of open space that is preserved. It’s a significant effort, undertaken by dedicated volunteers looking to improve communities and trail access for all. Whether you’re new to trail riding, an endurance rider with thousands of miles under your belt or a back-country packer, one thing is unquestionable: none of these trails would exist if it weren’t for volunteer groups that actively advocate for your right to ride them. 22

Chickasaw State Park, TN On the Web: https://www.trailmeister.com/trails/ chickasaw-state-park/ Trailhead Coordinates: 35.390010, -88.773756 Chickasaw State Park is home to a wrangler campground which was designed specifically for visitors traveling with horses. The Wrangler Campground is located near the horse stables to ensure fabulous visit for riders camping with their horses. There are 32 wrangler sites, each with water and electrical hookups. All park campsites include amenities such as picnic tables and grills, modern bathhouses with hot showers and restroom facilities and even a playground for children to enjoy. The park is situated on some of the highest terrain in west Tennessee. Of the area’s 14,384 acres of timberland, 1,280 acres are used for recreation, including over a hundred miles of horse friendly trails that meander through hardwood forest and meadows.
