Ann Kirk ABCs for a Great Foundation


pril is here and hopefully most of you are enjoying bare ground again. It has been an interesting winter in eastern Washington with most of the snow coming in short spurts but staying around long enough to keep the pens slick and the trails unsafe. But now that is behind most of us and it is time to continue teaching our horses to become that ideal mount we have always wanted. A great foundation starts with taking a quick look at two important aspects of your horse that control most of how they behave. First is the prey animal instinct. This dynamic is what causes the horse to overreact and possibly hurt you when something happens that is perceived as a threat to its safety. The threat does not have to be real. In the horse’s mind, it only has to be a perceived threat for the alarms to go off, the panic to kick in and the fight for survival to begin. Remembering that your horse is wired this way will give you a better understanding of how to keep yourself safe while working to recondition its natural response to perceived dangers. The second aspect is the herd dynamic or pecking order. Once the horse accepts you and your tools as safe, it instinctively wants to know who gets to lead. Most horses are not mean or willfully dangerous about this process but will just assume you are submitted to them unless you step up and let them know otherwise. They don’t mind being led if they

know you are a competent leader, but if you don’t lead, they will do what comes natural to them. Others will look to assume the lead rather forcefully and, depending on their success with certain tactics in the past, they can become quite dangerous to work with if you don’t know how to change their behavior. To start a solid foundation, I start in the round pen. I teach often on the benefits of using the round pen to gain mental control over the horse which then translates to better physical control. By working the horse loose without attachments, the horse can be taught to stop reacting emotionally to the pressure of a cue and to look for and figure out the right response to alleviate the pressure. The release of pressure signals the horse when it is correct and building upon these correct answers will completely change your horse’s behavior and way of dealing with emotional situations. You can teach your horse to control its natural response and to think before acting which leads to a much safer horse to be around.

Teaching the Art of Reading the Heart - Sensible Horsemanship APRIL 2014 • HORSE PREVIEWS • PAGE 6


The round pen lesson starts with gaining control of direction first. Then inside turns and outside turns, stopping on cue, turning to face and keeping both eyes on me wherever I am in the pen. Next is approaching the horse and touching it on the face and retreating. Many repetitions lead to sacking out with the hands all over the head, then the body. This is followed by adding objects such as a towel, lariat, saddle blanket, tarp and who knows what else to condition the “stand and wait” response that will keep us safe when unexpected stimuli come flying by on the wind. This conditioned response to stand instead of flee, is one of the most important foundations you can establish for safety with your horse. So, what’s next? The “Bridle” is next. I want to teach my horse to respond properly to the bit as soon as I can safely put a bit in its mouth. I am going to ride my horse from its very first ride to its last with a bit in its mouth unless it becomes so good, I feel confident enough to advance it to a halter or a string around its nose or maybe even nothing at all. But I will start with a plain stainless steel snaffle bit because I know with 100% certainty that I can teach my horse to respond to this bit and I can have the best control over my horse to keep me safe. A direct pull snaffle bit is the clearest form of communication I can introduce to my horse and therefore what I want to use. We start out speaking a different language, why add confusion by using equipment that sends unclear signals when trying to communicate? For me, the simple snaffle bit sends a much clearer signal than a halter, hackamore, bosal or whatever other contraption I have ever hung on a horse’s head so the

sooner I can begin the many repetitions it will take to fully condition the horse’s correct response to the touch of the reins, the smoother the rest of the training will progress. So, get a good bridle setup with a snaffle bit and reins. I prefer a continuous rope rein that is 5/8” to 1/2” in diameter. It should be long enough to work with one side without interfering with the opposite side of the mouth. If your horse has any issues with being bridled or if you just want a more convenient way of bridling, get some clips and hang the bit on your halter. The bridle work lessons I teach will be used to eliminate a variety of ground manner problems also, so I like applying the bit as soon as I catch the horse in some cases. Attaching the bit to the halter makes this easy to do. I will now go through a process to teach my horse the language of the bit. I work until I can control the whole horse in any direction with either rein. This is done separately and then using two reins together. I do not plan on using my legs in the beginning to control my horse so I want a great bit response before getting astride. The better you and your horse understand the bridle work lessons, the safer you will be when it comes time to ride. This bridle work will be taught both from the ground and in the saddle at my Sensible Horsemanship Spring Tune-up Clinic coming the end of April. I would love to see you there. God Bless and stay safe. – Ann For more information on Ann Kirk and her Sensible Horsemanship Programs, go to www.annkirk.com and check out the Sensible Horsemanship DVDs now available!

Equine Chiropractic

by Dr. Misty Parker, DVM McKinlay & Peters Equine Hospital - Spokane, Washington

Equine Chiropractic care has steadily gained popularity over the last five to ten years. Simply put, Chiropractic is the non-invasive manipulation of the musculoskeletal system to enhance the function of the nervous system and optimize health and athleticism. Though never to be considered a replacement for traditional veterinary medicine, the following points explain why chiropractic manipulation can be an effective adjunctive treatment Dr. Misty Parker, DVM for horses. The reason horses feel pain is because their nerves transmit signals to their brain that tells them something hurts. Every structure in their body has a nerve supply (except hooves and hair) and all of their nerves are in close proximity to their skeleton. The biggest example of this is their spinal cord, encased by the spine. If their skeleton is not moving correctly or is misaligned (especially the spine) it puts pressure on nerves. Nerves are very fragile and easily irritated or damaged. Joints are stressed by both minor and major incidents. Minor incidents consist of everyday activities such as saddle and/or rider strain, competition, riding in the trailer, breeding, etc. Also included in this category are lameness, poor conformation and foot neglect, such as long toes and low heels. These minor incidents account for the majority of cases of joint stress. Major incidents refer to trauma, falling, being stuck or cast in a stall, trailer accidents, etc. Horses have an innate intelligence that controls how they respond to pain. If a joint is stressed, creating nerve stimulation, their bodies protect that area through muscle spasms and inflammation in an effort to enhance healing by preventing as much motion as possible. When a horse tries for some time to protect the injury, the horse loses some of its natural mobility and the joints become “stuck”, either in a normal position or misaligned. This “stuck” joint is called a subluxation. Horses are very good at compensating for subluxated joints. When one joint has limited motion and associated pain, the horse does not refuse to work, but instead will redistribute their weight abnormally to compensate for the injury. This, in turn will lead to other joints becoming stressed, injured and subluxated. Plasticity (muscle memory) is a phenomenon where once the body moves in a certain way for 30 days, a new brain pathway is created and the horse then recognizes that pattern as normal (habit). Through posture analysis, gait analysis, static palpation

and motion palpation, a subluxation can be located and then a low amplitude, high velocity thrust can be applied with a specific angle to a specific joint to restore normal mobility. Because horses are so good at compensating and they rarely have a single subluxation, every joint will be evaluated in the horse during an adjustment. After each adjustment, to confirm that motion has been restored, the horse will be re-palpated. Due to plasticity (muscle memory), a second adjustment is recommended in two weeks. It is important for the horse to hold the adjustment for 30 days to “re-boot” their system. While horses with acute problems may only need two or three adjustments, horses with chronic conditions may require ongoing adjustments before resolution can be achieved. In more chronic cases, adjusting a horse can also aid in insolation of the primary problem, the reason they felt pain to begin with. Many different problems can be helped with chiropractic care, including reluctance to pick up a certain lead, reluctance to turn, resistance to loading in a trailer, decreased performance, “cinchy” behavior, irritation while saddling, reluctance to enter an arena, poor attitude, back soreness, etc. Dr. Misty Parker is a graduate of Washington State University, College of Veterinary Medicine and has been a part of the team at McKinlay & Peters Equine Hospital since 2011. She is certified in Equine Chiropractic by the International Veterinary Chiropractic Association.

Here Kitty, Kitty, Kitty! Krisean Performance Horses “Life With the Blue-Eyed Wonders” by Jill Smith 15221 N. Shady Slope Road, Spokane, WA 99208 • 509-466-4612 • jillsmith4@earthlink.net


inally a blue-sky day! Spring seems awfully wet this year with rain, rain, rain. I headed out the ranch door and stopped to watch the ranch cats try to negotiate between puddles without getting their toes too wet! I have a new cat, Kiger Tiger Toes, who has 6 toes on each foot, all the way around. Those 24 toes were having a hard time staying dry! 28 toes is the Guinness World record for toes on a cat. Wouldn’t you know we’d miss it by only 4 toes! I called kitty, kitty, kitty and let the many-toed wonder into the house. Heading to the corral, I wondered how Commander, my perlino Quarter Horse stallion, was feeling today. He’d been so serious lately. But that usually happened about this time of year as he wondered how many mare, mare, mares might come his way for breeding season! There he was and he looked more contemplative then depressed. Who knows what he might be up now! The mind of a stallion is always working…in one direction… in winter it’s hay, hay, hay and in summer it’s mare, mare, mare. “Hey Commander, what’s up big boy?” I inquired. “It’s sad, sad, sad” Commander said with definitely a sad look in his blue eyes. “What’s going on?” I was worried now. Commander hardly

ever shows concern, so there must be something seriously wrong. “You haven’t heard about the little black kitty?” Commander glanced my way with just a little tear forming in his eye. He then proceeded to tell me the tale of the tabby. “You know that sweet little black kitty that is always around? The one that is sooo curious and always getting into everything. That little black kitty that everyone loves?” Commander had tears in both eyes now. “Yeah, yeah, yeah so what’s happened!!?” I was really worried now as I love all our wonderful ranch animals and the thought that the sweet little black kitty… “Well, someone left the freezer door open just a crack and

little black kitty crawled right inside. The open door was noticed and shut and little black kitty was locked inside! A while later someone went to get some ice cubes and there was little black kitty almost completely frozen!” Commander had his head down now. “Oh No! Was she….” I couldn’t bear the thought of such a frozen fate! “She was just barely alive and everyone was panicked! The ranch hands thought maybe some liquid in her mouth might help revive her but the only thing they had was some gasoline. So they just used that and poured some down her little throat.” Commander was shaking his head slowly from side to side to side. “GASOLINE! Were they nuts!!! I’m going to…” I started looking for someone to throw something at. Commander glanced at me then continued. “Well, little black kitty jumped right up and started running at high speed all around the barn yard! She didn’t stop running for a good 10 minutes! Then all of a sudden she just fell over on her side and laid very still” “Oh my gosh, was she dead?!” I was crying now. “Nah, she just ran out of gas.” Commander delivered his punch line with such timing that it would have made both Jay Leno and David Letterman green with envy!  I stopped mid-cry as Commander dissolved into ha, ha, ha horse laughs and “sweet” little black kitty fell out of her hiding bucket rolling with meows of mirth! They thought this was black kitty humor at its best! Before I could get my hands on either one of them they tore off together towards the far end of the pasture. “Here kitty, kitty, kitty. Here horsey, horsey, horsey. I’m going to shoot you both!!!” Jill Smith is a Spokane, WA entrepreneur, international business owner, artist/potter and cowgirl at heart.

On The edge Of COmmOn SenSe by Baxter Black, DVM

Rudy I’ve got a year-old Australian Shepherd dog. I don’t intend to use him for livestock; his job will be barker. We live in a rural area. The dogs are penned at night and released during the day into a three acre house and barn lot surrounded by shock collar wire. We have regular invasions of coyotes and javelina that can make short work of barn cats and outside dogs. Barking is a good deterrent and alarm for intruders. Back to Rudy, the new dog. From the beginning he was a boisterous, happy, destructive puppy. It was cute when he was three months old, but now it’s a pain! I thought he was genetically goofy but Mr. Jeb, the dog trainer, met Rudy and convinced me the dog was smart, he just needed better training. After a year has passed, I’ve contained his exuberance and he minds well, but he still gets excited when company comes. The issue I’m still dealing with is his destructive tendencies. One dare not leave a bag, jacket, pillow, piece of Styrofoam,

'69 Ford instruction manual, set of reins, saddle blankets, turkey wrapped in tin foil, pruning shears with wooden handles or electrical wire within his grasp. He is a universal shredder. He has eaten four of our screw-on pistol spray guns. Other objects that have been wrecked in his wake: placemats, rugs, water jugs, buckets, lamp shades, gloves and a plastic hub cap. I know he knows better. While tearing down an 8 ft. shed made of canvas, I caught him in the act. I chastised him firmly, rolling him in the ragged canvas and shouting, “No! Bad dog!” To this day all I have to do is point to the canvas and he slinks off. This week he has chewed completely through two of my good heavy-duty fifty foot 7/8 inch rubber hoses and another plastic 30 footer that was rolled up in one of the holders. I gave him the “Bad Dog!” and spanked him with the hose. To show how well my lesson worked, I left the chewed hose in plain view. The next morning I found it in the other side of the corral. I called him. He came loping over and saw me holding the hose. I didn’t even have to speak to him. He cowered shamelessly and said, “I didn’t mean to do it! I forgot! It was just there! I was cleaning up the yard! I was going to fix it later! The barn cat made me do it! The coyotes must have moved it! I was going to put it back! It was terrorists! Blame it on the Minute Men, Obamacare, George Bush, illegal immigrants, the Miami Heat, the Catholics, the Baptists, the Mormons…” then he paused and said, “What difference does it make anyway?” Looks like I’m gonna have to restrict his cable television habits. www.baxterblack.com

Featured Youth Rider Geneva Ashton

eneva Ashton is 16 years old and loves horses. Adopted when she was nine, she has never felt more at home than with her horses. Geneva started riding when she was about 7, but was forced to quit for about a year when her allergies to horses got too bad. A real trooper, she decided to go back to riding despite the allergies and hasn’t regretted it once. One of Geneva’s nicknames is The Chestnut Kid, since she has somehow worked with almost all chestnut horses in her horse career. Currently, Geneva rides in Poulsbo, WA and attends Eagle Harbor High School on Bainbridge Island. Her trainer wrote, “Geneva is a doll of a girl, who connects with her horses on an entirely wonderful level. She is an amazing shower, a great rider and a very promising up and coming horsewoman. Anyone who sponsors her, works with her, rides with her or even talks to her can see the light within her, especially in her smile. She has been a love to work with and works hard

every time she rides to improve herself. I’m hopeful we will start seeing her in high shows and I know her dream is to be a queen/princess. If anything would help, I think it would be a cowboy hat! That girl can sit a buck and run barrels smooth as anything. I know she needs sponsors, and is missing some crucial bits and pieces of tack including spurs and a show saddle, but I have faith that people will see the light in her and help her out! This girl is a princess, but in the best way. She loves bling, loves to help out and loves to know she made a difference! She has the biggest heart of all my students and I can’t say enough good things about her. Everyone in her life is lucky to know ‘The Chestnut Kid’!” Geneva rides English and Western and is a very good jumper. She was hoping to attend finals this year, but doesn’t have a horse capable of that. Her horse’s name is Fannie and she is a 7 year old Quarter Horse mare that was a gift from her aunt. She is currently looking for sponsors as well as a care lease to take her to state. If anyone is interested in sponsoring Geneva, you can email at iseeinsaneninjas@ gmail.com

Groundbreaking Conference at Emerald Downs to Focus on Protecting Horses Against the Dangers of Climate Change


griculture is often cited as a sector most vulnerable to the effects of climate change because of its dependency on natural resources and weather conditions. With changes in weather patterns, horse keepers and equine professionals are already noticing changes in quality and availability of pasture, hay, feed, bedding and other agricultural products. Other climate change factors that may affect horse owners include the spread of new diseases, emergence of new weedy species in pasture lands, wider ranges for crop pests, and greater fuel costs to purchase products or haul horses. But the news isn’t all bad. There may be practices horse owners already do, like rotational grazing, that offer big picture solutions for reversing climate change. However, developing new or modified practices sometimes requires thinking outside the box - balancing innovation with tradition alongside adaptation. On Friday April 25, from 8:30-4pm, join the King Conservation District and Horses for Clean Water along with major event sponsors Lighthoof Equine, Trinity Ranch and Snohomish Conservation District at this new and exciting event, “Conference on Horse Keeping and Climate Change: Managing the Uncertainty.” This event will be held at Emerald Downs Race Track in Auburn, WA. The cost is $20 for horse owners/general public and $35 for agency participants, and is free to those wishing to view the conference via live web

stream. For those attending in person, the registration fee includes coffee and fruit at sign-in, catered lunch, vendor display, tram tour of Emerald Downs horse facilities plus a free ticket to the races redeemable any 2014 race day! Keynote speakers include: Dr. Gary Muscatello, DVM, from the University of Sydney, Australia Chad Kruger, WSU Center for Sustaining Agriculture and Natural Resources Washington State University, Dr. Nick Bond, Washington State Climatologist, University of Washington The afternoon session will offer participants tools to “future proof” their land and horses. Content on land management practices will include new twists on pasture management, innovative approaches to water conservation on horse properties and more. In addition, the Conference will be videotaped for streaming on the day of the event and available for online viewing afterward. Visit www.kingcd.org to register to attend in person or view via live stream; or you can call 425-282-1949 or email signup@kingcd.org for additional registration assistance. On April 25, learn how you can protect your horse and land in the face of changing conditions — “futureproof” your animals and grazing crops!
