GO HIGHER by Crystal Lyons

Most people (for very good reason) would NOT want to teach their horse to rear, but that is not the case for me. A good rear at the appropriate moment is a perfect touch to what I do horseback. Soooo, how do you go about getting a horse to elevate that front end? The first time I had this done, was during a John Lyons clinic when his son Josh was just a teenager. We went out where we couldn’t get snitched on, because as Josh said, “Dad would kill me if he knew I was teaching a horse such a bad habit!” But my begging wore down his resistance and the adventure of the challenge seemed to outweigh his fear of the consequences. Josh had never even attempted to teach a horse to rear but his “horse savvy” was obvious even at that young age. Josh began to place my horse in a position where the right response was the one that released the pressure. Standing beside “Max,” Josh asked him to walk forward by gently tapping him on the hip but at the same time restraining him from moving forward. You could see the wheels turning in Max’s head as he was desperately trying to figure out what we were asking of him. “Go forward... no, you can’t.” How frustrating! I would’ve given up in the space of 15 minutes… seriously. But not Josh. He quietly and patiently kept putting pressure on Max to move forward while preventing him to do so. Josh made it so that the ONLY way for Max to move was UP, and that is what he eventually did. If my memory serves me right, it took about two hours. In the end Max was rearing on cue much to our GREAT delight! We were SO excited about it, we happily spilled the beans to John who playfully acted as if his son had gone off the deep end and I was the villain who led him astray. Although this might be a fairly bad example, the way Josh taught my horse to rear is sometimes the way God uses to get US to go HIGHER. We can be pressured to move forward while at the same time restrained to do so. What’s the response? Go UP. What do I mean by going higher? Sometimes when we feel “stuck” in life, it’s an invitation to step out of the rut so to speak and make some changes. Change usually doesn’t come without PRESSURE. We innately resist change. It usually takes us getting utterly frustrated with things as they stand to make the appropriate moves to elevate our life. In some instances going higher can mean an improvement in our character. God WANTS to bless us, but the challenge is, can we be trusted to not use our blessing against Him? A person begins to prosper

greatly in their business and after awhile, the gorgeous bass boat has them spending more time at the lake while ignoring the One Who GAVE them the power to attain wealth. How many really beautiful women do you see whose beauty eventually causes them to enter a lifestyle that drives them away from God? There’s a correct saying that goes something like this: “A person’s gift can sometimes take them where their character cannot sustain them.” Interpreted means... sometimes you simply cannot go where you are CALLED to go, until your character arises to the place where it can sustain the blessings and handle the pressures that the calling will bring. Sometimes we can no longer move forward until we go HIGHER.

The Top 3 Tricks Horse Owners Can Use To

Unspoil a BARN SOUR HORSE Andy Curry


t’s been weeks since you went riding. Now you have time to ride this afternoon and there ain’t no one gonna stop you. Excited, you saddle up your horse and get on him. You get about 50 feet from the barn and your horse turns around and goes back – and you can’t stop him. Why? You have a barn spoiled horse. This is a common scenario for novice horse owners. Here are the top three tricks to solve the barn sour problem. Teach your horse that you have control over him. Once your horse gets it in his mind that you can make him do what you want him to do, you have control over him and can thus make him leave the barn. One way to get control over him is to use a training technique called doubling. When you double your horse you teach him you can control him. It doesn’t take long before your horse will know you can control him. Be careful when doubling though. If you do it too much at a time you can over do it. Your horse could get so sensitive to you doing it that he may try to anticipate it. If he sees your hands making the slightest movement that looks like you’re about to double him, he may double himself. Thus, just double him four to six times a day on both sides. He’ll quickly learn you have control. The next thing you can try is this: Make it dang hard to do the wrong thing – and make it real easy to do the right thing. Here’s what I mean. A while back my horse didn’t want to leave her buddies or the barn. We’d get about 100 feet away and she’d turn around and bolt back. She’d stop in front of the barn expecting me to get off, remove the saddle and tack, and put her back into the corrals. By my barn is two hay stacks. There is a space between them big enough to go through and do figure eights around the hay stacks. So every time she’d go back I would make her work, and work, and work at running figure eights around those hay stacks. Then I would test her to see if she had enough and would leave the area. The first seven times she ran back. Each time we came back to the barn we’d run more laps around the hay stacks. I could tell she was getting tired. But the eighth time I walked her away from the hay stacks I noticed she went quite a ways before turning to go back. When we went back again we ran more figure eights. Only this time I could tell we didn’t have to do too many. I walked her out and away from doing the figure eights and I suddenly had a horse who decided that it was sooo much nicer going for a walk away from the barn rather than doing a bunch of crummy ol’ figure eights. We had a nice ride that day and she was in no hurry to get home. VOLUME 5 | ISSUE 5 2019


The last thing to do is this: Ride. Ride a lot. Don’t wait for weeks or months in between riding. Try to ride at least once per week for three or four hours. Preferably, try to ride at least twice a week for a few hours at a time. (Ideally, you should ride everyday. But that’s hard to do with today’s time constraints) Doing that your horse will get in his brain that you’re going to ride and he’s going to leave the barn and there will be no argument. In fact, if you want to have a great horse the biggest secret is this: Ride the heck out him! So if your horse is barn spoiled you can try doubling him to show you are in control. The next thing you can try is making the wrong thing difficult and the right thing easy. Make it dang hard for him to go the wrong thing and very pleasant to do the right thing. And lastlyArticle Search, ride your horse often. Two to three times a week if possible.

Horses & Swimming by mortenstorgaard www.animalhow.com


ver wondered if it’s a good idea to take your horse swimming in the water? Well, there are some things you need to know first. Can All Horses Swim? Horses float pretty well and it seems like all of the different breeds know how to swim without being taught. It’s probably a combination of genetics and how the animal this built. But this doesn’t mean that all horses are great swimmers nor that they like being in the water. First and foremost, a horse can actually sink in the water if it cannot swim. So you need to start out with good experience in order to teach the animal to stay calm and focused. Secondly, horses probably have it in their DNA to know how to swim. This is because horses at all times have had to cross rivers. It’s simply not possible to live your whole life (as a wild horse) without ever going into the water. The leader of the flock will at some point have you cross a river or a pond and then you just have to tag along. Sometimes they just need to “unlock” the potential. Just like humans, they might need a few tries before they get it right. How Do I Teach My Horse To Swim Better? The first experience with water is very important for the horse. This is where it gets its initial feeling of how dangerous (or not dangerous) 12

the water is. It’s important to start out in shallow water and build up from there. You should never throw the horse in deep waters just to force it to learn swimming. Nobody likes this and if this was your own first encounter with water you probably developed a phobia long before you learned to swim. Right? So what’s the best way to start out? You should start by visiting a little pond. Try to ride the horse all the way through without the water getting further up than 1 or 2 feet. From here you can work your way into the deeper water gradually. The first time the animal is experiencing deeper water you should not be on it’s back. It can be both difficult and dangerous that’s we will look at in a bit. Now you need to find somewhere with no obstacles in the water. We don’t want the horse to step on anything pointy or too encounter any big stones under the water. A good tip here is to take short rounds into the water and back on the beach. You can also write him a few steps into the water and let him stand for a while and then right back on the beach. By doing so you teach the animal that it’s possible to get back in safety. Watch it carefully and make sure it doesn’t get too nervous. You should also make sure to ALWAYS stand at the front of the animal so you won’t get kicked by the feet as it pushes itself forward in the water.

VOLUME 5 | ISSUE 5 2019

A kick from a horse underwater is not as dangerous as a kick on the field but it’s still very powerful and it can easily knock you over or break your bones. As your horse gets comfortable walking in the water it’s time to move on into deeper waters. How Do Horses Swim? A horse will swim in a way that is quite similar to what we see with larger dogs. Because they are heavy creatures the majority of the body will be submerged in the water at all times. You will only see the head above water and it looks like they are paddling with the legs. A horse will kick its way forward in the water. The first few times the horse will be more awkward in the water and it will probably need you to guide it with the rope. You need to take a very proactive role during the first couple of times. Can You Ride A Swimming Horse? It’s very hard to ride a swimming horse for several reasons. It can also be pretty dangerous as we will look at it a bit. The first reason why it’s hard to ride a swimming horse is that it is doing movements that are very different from riding. The horse is simply not as focused on you (as a rider) as it is on the ground. On the ground, the horse knows exactly how to maneuver around in order to make it safe and easy for you to hold onto it. But in the water, it will be much more focused on moving forward because it’s not its natural environment. As we mentioned before, it’s also quite dangerous to ride the swimming horse. The first problem here is that you cannot always predict its movements. The horse will do some unexpected movements and it may also do some quick moves. This can cause the rider to fall off the horse and this is especially dangerous. If you happen to fall off a swimming horse you might get kicked from the feet. That’s the most dangerous part of riding a swimming horse and why most people should stay away from doing so.


Say you saw it in HORSE N RANCH TM

The last thing we need to mention here is the fact that only the head of the horse is above the water when it swims. This means that you will also largely be submerged in the water the whole time. This is definitely not an easy task and not something you should try for fun! If you must… If you do want to swim with the horse in the water there are a few things to be aware of. It’s really important that your weight is not pushing the horse down into the water. Remember that the horse is a very heavy animal and it doesn’t swim well if it gets heavier than it already is. You should swim as well in order to take the weight off the horses back and shoulder. By doing so you let the animals swim by itself while you are sort of swimming on top of it. That’s much better than clamming onto the neck of the animal because that will probably freak out the horse and just cause you both to sink. Keep a safe distance to the kicking legs. You will normally have to swim beside the animal. If it catches up on you and swims faster than you, it is very important that you focus on where its feet are. Trust me, you don’t want to be kicked in the water by a swimming horse! If the horse starts to panic, you need to get away from it. You should not swim around it in order to keep it calm. It will struggle around and start kicking left and right just like you and me when we lose control in the water. It would have to get back to the shore by itself. And so do you. Don’t’ swim too long as it might get tired before you do! After 10 minutes in the water, a horse will probably be done. You don’t want to overdo it, especially not if you are unfamiliar with the animal in the water. It’s tough for a horse to swim and it spends a lot more energy in the water than on the ground. At least you should take him to the beach after five or seven VOLUME 5 | ISSUE 5 2019

minutes in order to check with him that the breathing returns to normal pretty quickly. Do Horses Like Being In Water? It totally depends on the horse. Just like with people. Horses are generally good at swimming in the water so it seems fair to assume that most horses have a good time in the water. But there are certainly horses who don’t like to be in the water and not all horses are naturally good at swimming. Why do horses paw at water? At first, you might think that the horse is just having a fun time. But normally, this is never the case when the horses are pawing. It’s probably doing so in order to test the waters. If it’s a horse with much swimming experience you probably don’t need to worry about it. But if your horses not used to swim, it’s important to pay close attention to what is going on. You need to make sure the horse knows that you are in control of the situation. Force them to stop immediately and let him know that this behavior is not acceptable. The reason why this can be dangerous is that you don’t want the horse to suddenly begin rolling over with you on top. It can be dangerous to sit on a horse that starts rolling over, especially in the water. So make sure you stop it immediately. Can Horses Hold Their Breath Under Water? Horses cannot hold their breath underwater. So if there are big waves it can actually get pretty dangerous for the horse. You definitely wouldn’t want to ride a horse in the water if it’s windy and the horse is in danger of getting the head under the water. A horse can easily get


stressed out if it gets its head under the water because is not able to hold its breath. It will simply drown if it gets the head under the water for too long. In that regard, we humans are much better swimmers. If the horse gets the head underwater it can also suffer from getting water into the ears. If that happens you need to guide the horse back into more shallow waters in order for it to reach the bottom. It will probably panic and it’s really important that you do not panic along with it. It needs to know that you are in control of this situation. You have to grab the rope and keep it firm in order to guide their horse back toward the beach. The horse’s ears do not have drains as they do on humans. This means, that water running into that ears of the horse will be built up inside the animal and that can cause infections and other critical conditions. Enjoy the water, and STAY SAFE!

We work to alleviate the suffering and senseless slaughter of domestic equine and to provide an environment for rehabilitation and carefully select adoptive homes At the age of 12 Victoria rescued her first horse. Since 1968 she has always taken in the horses that everyone has given up, trying to turn their life around by giving them one last chance. In 1991, orphaned nurse mare foals were brought to Victoria’s attention. Since then, Nurse Mare Foal Rescue is our main priority and has progressively grown to save THOUSANDS of foals. We offer a neonatal and intensive care facility for orphan nurse mare foals. We provide the foals with the necessary attention in order to secure a future in adoptive homes. Annually, we save 150-200 throw away foals from a certain death and provide them with the opportunity to a healthy life. One or two at a time, horses have come in and out of her life inspiring her to firmly believe that there is always a horse out there in need of refuge, and always a need for someone to feel responsible and intervene on that animal’s behalf. Establishing the Last Chance Corral in 1986 was the realization of her vision of creating a muchneeded facility to offer horses asylum. Today, the Last Chance Corral proudly offers horses hope, shelter, and opportunity regardless of their situation or problems. Be it psychological

or physiological we are committed to addressing the individual needs of each rescued animal. Our work begins with developing an individual diet, treatment regiments, and a training program for each horse according to its needs. When a horse has been sufficiently rehabilitated we go about the work of finding appropriate adoptive homes that suit the horse’s needs and abilities. 740.594.4336 lastchancecorral.org

By Robert “TrailMeister” Eversole Morning coffee is the highlight of my day. But I don’t want the odors of breakfast to linger in the LQ. I needed a space to store my kitchen equipment, and a convenient area to prepare and cook my meals. I’ve seen lots of chuck / kitchen boxes over the years and they all seemed lacking and terribly expensive. So, I designed my own to fulfill my needs and wants at much less expense. MY TOP REQUIREMENTS: 1 - Store inside trailer while in motion - In my opinion boxes that are permanently fixed to the sides of trailers are hazardous. I don’t want anything obstructing my rear view when driving. And I just may need that extra few inches when I turn into a parking area. Finding this inside storage space was a bigger challenge than I anticipated. I wanted the boxes to be safely secured when in motion and I wanted them out of the LQ area. Fortunately, my stock style trailer has a rolling gate that divides the stock space. The rolling gate is skookum strong and is plenty sturdy enough to hang the kitchen boxes from. This is where to kitchen boxes will live in transit and in the event that I want to cook in inclement weather. Forward of the gate is “dirty” storage where coolers, saddles, and tack live. Aft of the gate is home to Ruger and the girls. If I’m hauling more animals, I can simply 16

roll the gate forward to create more space for horses and mules. 2 - Versatility in camp – My main kitchen area when camping is under the awning, but if the weather is nasty it’s nice to be able to move into a more protected area inside the trailer. To accommodate this need I mounted hangers to the back of the boxes that allows them to easy be moved from the rolling gate to the matching hanger that is mounted over the fenders and under the awning. 3 - Extendable legs to stand on the ground – Again, versatility is important, and I wanted to be able to set up my kitchen anywhere I wanted; specifically, I wanted to be able to load the kitchen on a pack animal and use it as hard sided panniers. The idea of having my camp kitchen in the backcountry is very appealing! 4 - Organized storage – For me an organized kitchen is the secret to a happy camping trip. That means dedicated shelves so that everything has a home. 5 - Lightweight and durable – I’ve seen many boxes that were too heavy and cumbersome to be easily moved. Aircraft grade aluminum and stainless steel keep my kitchen much lighter than a wooden box and able to withstand years of use. To fulfill all my requirements, I came up with the following dimensions for the boxes: 12” deep, 24” tall, 24” long, legs extend to 30” high. An organized kitchen is the secret to a happy camping trip. That said, it’s not always easy to keep all your camp cooking gear and ingredients readily accessible when you’re at the campsite. The shelves vary in height and can easily accommodate my stove, kitchen supplies, and food. NOTE: In hindsight I should have made the shelves adjustable. The front flips down and create a sturdy horizontal table and is covered with food grade High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) Sheets to provide easy to clean food prep and cooking surfaces. Well there you go, my DIY camp kitchen. Designing the boxes was surprisingly forward and any

competent metal fabricator can build them with little trouble. These boxes will take a lot of the guesswork out of packing and unpacking and will save me a lot of time in the cooking process.

PALM PARTNERSHIP TRAINING™ Building a Partnership with Your Horse By Lynn Palm

Aids Communication Keys to Success:

INCLUDE A WARMUP Most people who do any type of exercising know the importance of a warm-up. When riding, including a warm-up helps the horse loosen and limber up his muscles after standing in the stall or pasture. It prepares his mind and body for the work you will be asking him to do whether it be schooling, trail riding, pleasure riding, or showing. The same principle applies to warming up ourselves before riding. The warm up is time for the rider to get into correct form and balance as she warms up her muscles and joints. I find it is a precious, pleasant time when I reconnect with my horse before starting the more serious work at hand. Here are some tips for making your warm up time more effective. Start the warm up by letting your horse walk on a loose rein. The warm up pattern should include very large circles, large turns, and straight lines. The horse should be moving forward, but relaxed. After warming up at the walk, ask him for the trot or jog. The trot is the best gait for the horse to limber himself up. At this point, the rider should not be worried about the horse being “on the bit”. Instead he should just be allowed to move forward on a loose rein with the rider guiding him to stay on the circle, large turn, or the straight line. Remember the rule of thumb to equal the amount of time going in one direction as the other. Change directions to limber up both sides of your horse and help keep his interest during the warm up. I recommend that the rider, even if using a Western saddle, post when trotting/jogging during the warm up period. This gives her the opportunity to warm up and use her muscles. As she begins to get warmed up, she will notice her muscles respond better. Her coordination improves. Her thinking slows. She begins to relax as her

warmed up body allows her to better follow the horse’s movement. As part of the warm up, the rider can try taking her feet out of the stirrups to get down in the saddle and closer to her horse. As her body warms up, she will find she is able to follow the horse’s movement even without stirrups, and stay in balance! Our next articles will turn to one of the most important keys to riding… the use of the rider’s hands, seat, and legs. These “natural” aids influence how she communicates to her horse and responds to him. If you want to learn how to “speak” to your horse with aids that whisper, instead of shout, don’t miss our articles. Your Next Step… I am often asked, how much time should be allowed for a warm up? The answer is: there is no set amount of time. It depends on many factors that you, as the rider, must take into account for each ride. The colder the weather, typically the longer and slower the warm up should be to loosen up cold muscles and joints. It must be long enough to physically and mentally warm up the horse up, but it is not intended to wear him out or bore him! Enough time should be spent so that both sides of the horse are equally warmed up. For the rider a good gauge of how long her warm up period should be is that she should feel the same balance and relaxation without her stirrups as with them. At the end of the warm up, the rider and horse should feel good and positive about the next step they will take in their riding. Until then, follow your dreams… For more information about Lynn Palm, her clinics in Florida and other parts of the U.S., DVDs and more, visit www.lynnpalm.com or call 800.503.2824.
