Ann Kirk A Day on the Trail I love trail riding! I specialize in training for trail riding. The majority of my clients want to trail ride. So let’s go on a trail ride. Seldom, if ever, do I just go out, saddle up a horse, get on and go. I ride far too many ‘green-broke’ horses to do that and most of the ‘seasoned’ horses I own, I own because they have issues with the saddle or something that makes them need a little more attention before heading out the gate. So, I normally start my riding experience with a little warm-up time from the ground. This consists of a little close-up bridle work with some sacking out. Then I do some directional control work on a longer line to check for any ‘bubbles’ under the saddle. The amount of time spent doing a warm-up depends on how long it has been since I last rode that particular horse. When all is well, I make sure all 3 dogs are present, open the gate and head out to enjoy a ride in the beautiful woods I call home. I start all my trail riding horses out at a walk. I want them to know that walking is the gait of choice and is the only gait they are allowed to use for a good long while. It is normal for them to try trotting the first few times they go out, but I will stop and back them each time they trot until they realize they are only allowed to walk. If I only bring them back to a walk each time, they have made progress by trotting and it is not as effective as backing. It is so much easier to teach a horse to

walk in the beginning than to try to retrain them to walk after they get the notion they can trot when they want and lope up every hill. There are plenty of methods for speeding a horse up but not so many for slowing them down. I ride by myself a good deal of the time. Though I like riding with others, I would not get too many trail riding horses out on the trails if I waited for company, so most of my training and riding is done alone. I find, in most cases, it is easier to teach speed control while I am alone because the horse is not worried about being left behind or about what the other horses are doing. If I am going to ride with others, I make sure I know what kind of riding they like to do before I go out on the trail with them. If my horse is still in the walking phase, I don’t want to ride with a group that likes to lope at random. I find it wise to apply the buddy system when riding with others. That way I have someone who will stay with me if I need to do something special or spend a little extra time getting my horse safely over a difficult spot in the trail. Spend a little time riding with your buddy before going on a group ride so

your horses get used to each other and then let the group know what your plan is so they don’t misunderstand if you get behind on the trail. I like to relax on a trail ride and I want my horse relaxed too. But she is not going to be relaxed if she is afraid of being hurt. So I let my horse know right from the start that I am not going to try to ‘cram’ her through anything that she might be frightened of. I accept that she is a prey animal and that she has an excellent sense of hearing and smell, so if she wants to stop because she is concerned about something ahead, I will let her. Keeping her nose pointed towards the scary object or direction, I will just sit and relax. I wait until either she chooses to move forward or I feel her relax and then I ask her to proceed. Just this simple act of respecting her concerns can keep me from creating an unnecessary wreck. If I come upon something that she is afraid of and I pressure her to just do it, I can do some serious damage to her trust and it makes her more anxious about obstacles in general. She may resort to extreme behaviors to avoid being forced over something she perceives as dangerous. Some people think that if they force the horse through once, then the horse will be okay with it the next time. But, adding fear to an

already uncertain horse will only make them worse the next time. Soon, I would have to know my trails and avoid any rides that might have obstacles my horse won’t deal with. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Teaching my horse to calmly negotiate obstacles is a great lesson and well worth my time. When done right, my horse will approach new things with an understanding of what I am going to ask her to do. She will trust that she will be guided, not pressured, through the correct steps. The horse learns to trust my request to approach new things. She gets this respect and trust from having been taught in a safe situation to go over, under and through things she is not familiar with and by learning that she did not get hurt while doing so. The lessons are for the rider as much or more than the horse. The rider learns how to approach an unfamiliar setting in a manner that allows the horse time to negotiate it calmly and safely. The horse, in turn learns to approach the next object in a calmer, more confident manner. It will soon become apparent that it is really not about the particular obstacle you are working with but about teaching your horse a pattern for dealing with whatever obstacle or environmental setting you might come in contact with in your daily travels. Building trust is priceless and develops confidence for the future. If my horse gets too excited about something while I am in the saddle, I can step down, work through the bridle exercises from the ground and then remount. I can work her over or through a trail obstacle from the ground and then remount and do it successfully. I know there are many that would disagree but I have found there are no trophies given for getting hurt on my horse. I have ridden horses all my life and want to for many more years, so riding smart and not getting majorly hurt is very important to me. So, if that means I have to step off and work some things through from the ground, I will do that and my horse will be better for it. If you would like to come join me for a trail ride, come to my Fall Trail Riding Clinic on October 4. We will be spending the day on the trails, improving our communication skills and enjoying the beauty of God’s creation. Details are on my website.

Lions and Kigers and Bears, Oh My!

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

I had just finished reading up on the plight of wild mustangs in the US and decided it was time to check on my own herd of wildly crazy stallions. It seemed awfully quiet down by the stallion corrals. Never a good sign at my ranch! I rounded the barn corner and stopped dead in my tracks. My handsome, courageous, perlino Quarter Horse stallion, Commander, was head down, shaking all over and literally sobbing horse tears out of his blue eyes! I ran over and put my arm around his neck. “Commander, boy, what on earth is the matter?” I hurriedly asked. There is a benefit to having a talking horse who you can actually ask questions. The draw back is sometimes I don’t want to hear the answers! “They say there are tigers at the ranch! And I know tigers can take down a grown horse and consume him!” Commander shuddered. “And there are THREE of them out there somewhere!” “What! Did a circus lose them or just how did tigers get here?” I was looking over my shoulder too, expecting a pouncing tiger at any minute. Commander stopped shuddering, cocked his head, and gave me a withering look. “I heard that YOU brought them here! Are you wildly crazy to put us all in such peril??” Well that left me momentarily speechless which is a rare event. Then I slowly smiled to myself. I did know what he was talking about. A quote from the Wizard of Oz went through my mind. “Lions and tigers and bears, oh my!” I quoted to my big white horse. “Commander, I didn’t bring tigers to the ranch, I brought KIGERS to the ranch. There are three Kiger Mustangs in the front pasture.” “What’s a Kiger Mustang? They’re all mares, right?” His interest level had accelerated rapidly. “Well, let me tell you about Kigers.” I quickly said before he found out that they weren’t all mares and the mares weren’t his anyway. Kiger Mustangs … intelligent, beautiful, versatile athletes are considered “living genetic treasures” that embody the very essence of what it means to be called a horse. Most wild mustangs are of mixed bloodlines and exhibit a wide variety of colors and body styles. However the wild Kiger Mustangs possess many characteristics of the original Spanish Mustang. When the Spaniards set out to conquer the New World in the 1600’s, they brought their horses with them. These carefully bred descendants of the early Iberian horse had carried many a warrior into battle and proved themselves as sturdy, sure-footed and intelligent mounts. When these conquering steeds of European history stepped foot on to the New World soil, it wasn’t long before they were duly noted by the Native Americans as an essential “must have”! The influence of the ridden horse spread rapidly throughout southwestern lands. American settlers and Natives alike rapidly mounted themselves on these sturdy war horses to wage war for the land they claimed as their own. It just

might be that the conquering Spanish were defeated with the very animal they themselves brought to accomplish that job! American ingenuity at its best! The American cowboy and rancher used the descendants of this original Spanish import to work the land, carry them miles across the vast west and round up and drive the cattle that they raised. Escaped horses became the basis for the wild mustang herds. The name Mustang came about as an English language slang term for mesteno which meant “wild” or “unclaimed” horse in Spanish. As humans are apt to do, ranchers began to think of “improving” the horses that they rode and started cross breeding new bloodlines into the original Spanish line. The wild mustang herds became increasingly diluted in their bloodlines and it was thought that by the early 1900’s, the original, pure Spanish bloodline was pretty much extinct. Then in 1971, Ron Harding from the BLM discovered a small band of isolated horses in southeastern Oregon that were to become known as the Kiger Mustangs. All had a similar dun color, same conformation and had the distinct markings known as the dun factor, just like the original Spanish imports! DNA testing showed that they carry a high degree of Spanish “blood”. To preserve this unique and rare bloodline, it was decided that the small herd of original Kigers would be separated from other mustangs and the BLM placed two groups in different

fenced Horse Management Areas (HMAs). Today approximately 33 to 56 head are managed in the 28,000 acre Riddle Mountain HMA and approximately 60 to 80 exist in the 37,0000 acre Kiger HMA. Two herds were established in case an unforeseen natural disaster wiped out one herd. Every four years the herd is thinned and some outstanding Kiger Mustang are made available at auction to the public. According to the Kiger Mesteno Association, the Kiger breed standard is a mustang carrying the dun factor, ranging from 13 to just over 15 hands high with good saddle conformation. In general, the Kiger Mustang should be compact, light to moderately muscled, smooth and stylish in appearance. Kigers have clean, dense bone with sufficient substance, well developed joints and tendons, and a fine coat. They have good legs and medium sized hooves with a thick wall. Their eyes are big, wide set and prominent. Kigers also have distinctly hooked ear tips and fine muzzles. Temperament wise, the Kigers are very intelligent, learn extremely fast and are noted for stamina and toughness both in modern day and Spanish legend. The Kiger Mustang is truly a versatile athlete that can be found in Western Pleasure arenas, dressage competitions and trail classes or simply out on the range bringing in the cows. From driving, performance and pleasure to endurance and cutting….the Kiger Mustang seems to be able to do it all. I could see Commander digesting all this Kiger talk and trying to decide just how a Quarter Horse was better than a Kiger. Then his blue eyes lit up and he mused, “So I’ll be seeing these Kiger mares close up then?”

Not exactly, I thought as my intention was to cross my Kiger mares on my Arab race stallion, Timer, to produce great endurance horses. And then there was the issue that…one of the Kigers was a stallion that I was totally entranced with. He was going to see my Arab race mares. “So Commander, when you were so afraid thinking there were tigers here, didn’t you worry about your mares?” I tactfully took a diverting line of thought. “Oh, I thought about the mares, I figured the tigers would get them first as I’m sure they can’t run as fast as me.” Commander honestly responded not having a clue that the Arab race mares would have left him in their dust! “So now about all these Kiger mares…” “Ok, Commander, I have to tell you one of them is a very nice Kiger stallion. I’m sure Tesoro can tell you some great old Spanish legends.” I just avoided the mare issue for now. “Holy blue eyed smoke, another stallion is worse than a tiger!!!” He snorted and headed down the pasture. Then stopping and whirling around, with blue eyes opened wide he faintly asked, “Now what about those lions and bears you mentioned?!” Jill Smith is a Spokane, WA entrepreneur, international business owner, artist/potter and cowgirl at heart. She raises Arabian racehorses, Arabian/Quarter Horses, palominos and Cremellos/Perlinos. High N Command (pen name, Commander) is a smart-talking AQHA perlino stallion, constantly trolling for mares.

Horse Owners Preparing for Fall

veterinary knowledge

agel e s s

Dr. Bob Peters, McKinlay & Peters Equine Hospital


Once again fall is sneaking up on us. It seems that every year I only get to whine about the heat for a couple of days and poof…summer is over. Fall is my favorite time of year. Clear “sunny and 75” kind of days. Crisp mornings, October Dr. Bob Peters, McKinlay & Peters Equine Hospital Caddis hatches on the river… Back to work! So, what is it specifically that we as horse owners need to be concerned about for fall? Well nothing really. It is that season after fall (I won’t mention) that we are preparing for. First of all, we do fall Flu and Rhino booster vaccinations. Flu and especially Rhino have short efficacy from a vaccination standpoint. Most Flu vaccines are only effective for a maximum of 6 months. Rhino vaccines last for an even shorter period of time. We recommend a fall Flu/Rhino booster for most horses. If your horse lives at home and is not ever exposed to other horses, over the fence, trail riding with others, going to shows, etc... then the booster vaccine is not necessary. For all other horses, it is necessary.

We recommend deworming with either an Ivermectin product or Quest after the first hard frost in the fall. Those two products are the only two that are effective at killing Bot larvae that have attached themselves to the lining in your horse’s stomach. If you wait till after a hard frost or two, the Bot fly population will have died off and, obviously, will no longer be able to deposit their eggs. For those of you who do not know, Bot eggs are the little yellow dots usually found on the front legs of your horse. The eggs themselves must be removed also. If you deworm, but do not remove the eggs, your horse will quickly be re-infected with Bot larvae and your treatment will have been wasted. Finally, nutritional assessment is vital at this time of year. This is especially true for the geriatric population of horses. We end up doing a lot of dental work, particularly on older horses, this time of year. That is necessary to prepare them for the long cold season ahead. A horse should go into winter with a body condition score of at least 5. It is preferable for them to have a body score of 6 so that they have a buffer against the cold. The average horse, in warm weather, needs to consume about 2 percent of their body weight of quality hay per day just to maintain their weight. For a 1,000 lb. horse that amounts to 20 lbs. of hay. Remember those numbers are for warm weather and not being worked. If a horse is being worked, it needs more than that. Cold weather also requires more than the base line. Also, those are maintenance numbers, not weight gain numbers. If your horse is a little thin right now you only have about a month to add weight before the cold hits and it becomes much more difficult to achieve weight gain. As crazy as it seems, blanketing your horse overnight, even at this time of year, will help with weight gain. If you are feeding your horse adequate amounts of feed, it should be gaining weight; but if it is not, I recommend you have their teeth checked and possibly have blood work done also. All this talk makes it seem like the riding season is over. Well it certainly is not! Get out there and ride every chance you get. It is a beautiful time of year in the Northwest to enjoy with your equine buddies! — Dr. Peters

Cowboy Dressage: Here to Stay!


hat is Cowboy Dressage? According to its tagline, it’s what you do “When Dressage suits your needs but a Stetson suits your lifestyle.” Cowboy Dressage is Dressage with a unique court specially designed for Western horses. The brainchild of horseman Eitan Beth-Halachmy, it is a fusion of good Western horsemanship, classical dressage Eitan Beth-Halachmy principles and a philosophy of living that brings to mind a time when a person’s word was trustworthy, a code of honor was respected and community was a way of life. Cowboy Dressage has expanded so fast it is difficult to keep up with all the new places that have chapters springing up. A growing international presence, Cowboy Dressage is now making its way into the Inland Northwest with barns in Colville, Cheney, Post Falls, Sandpoint, Potlatch and other locations practicing the discipline, having fun riding their Western horses and learning basic Dressage. The mission and vision of Cowboy Dressage begins with a concept Eitan calls “Soft Feel.” It is the foremost principle of Cowboy Dressage. “Soft Feel” means respectful communication back and forth between horse and rider where the rider has the sensitivity and awareness to feel, receive, and respond to messages the horse gives back. In Eitan’s own words, “Soft Feel represents the highest achievement between horse and rider. There are no short cuts on the road to its success. It is a pure partnership built on trust and reward. Soft Feel is accomplished when full use of the riders correct aids have maintained the horse in balance, cadence and carriage. When a horse is taught to “balance himself” and not rely on the riders hands to hold him in frame, “lightness” occurs. For me, Soft Feel represents my own journey in horsemanship. It is what I wish to accomplish with each horse I train. The principles of Dressage are the foundation of Soft Feel. The western is the freedom to ride it.” (Eitan Beth-Halachmy) How do you describe “Soft Feel?” It is important to note that Eitan distinguishes between “Soft Feel” and no contact when he says “Soft Feel” is not no feel. “Light or soft contact does not mean you throw or pitch the reins away and allow the horse to carry himself on the forehand. It means what it says, Light/Soft contact. You can’t ride with Soft Feel if your seat, hands and aids are not being correctly used. Soft Feel is the end result of all aids in proper use, balance, rhythm and partnership.” ( How is Cowboy Dressage related to “real” Dressage training? It is real Dressage training, for Western horses. Important concepts like relaxation, the timing and use of the aids, release of those aids, preparation and execution of movements are all fundamental to the development of the Cowboy Dressage horse. Training seeks a sense of

By Michelle Binder partnership, lightness and harmony between horse and rider as well as proper balance, cadence, rhythm, carriage, control and a smooth overall performance. Horses should appear in elegant self-carriage with engaged haunches, elevated withers and poll, and without tension on the reins. Sounds like classical Dressage… What breeds can do Cowboy Dressage? All breeds of horses are participating in the work so the focus is on quality of movement. It is a tough job for judges to look at the relaxed frame of a Quarter Horse next to the relaxed frame of a Saddlebred; the stride length of a Warmblood next to that of the Morgan; the head and neck carriage of an Arabian next to an Appaloosa, so the judging is based on scoring the horse that exemplifies the best qualities of their breed. Judges must also look for seamless execution of the elements of the test, willingness of the horse, a square stop, performance of The unique Cowboy free, working and collected Dressage Court

A Sincere and Hearty Recommendation To all horse lovers, owners and equestrians: First, let’s be clear that this “letter of recommendation” is completely unsolicited. The equestrian we speak of here has no knowledge whatsoever that I am placing this “message” on his behalf. I have pursued horsemanship for nearly 50 years; we raise, train and sell AQHA Appendix Registered Quarter Horses. Most of my own horse work (and enjoyment!) is related to cattle ranching and wilderness pack trips. Due to professional obligations, building a new house, family matters and more, I found myself with a backlog of horses to train. To accomplish it all this summer, I sought help. I was considering taking on a training intern but, as luck would have it, I found a consummate professional who had been away from training horses for a while and had the time to come to work for me for the summer. His name is George Gouvas. After working directly, day after day with him for over two months now, I can say he is as fine a trainer and teacher of horses as I have ever encountered. George has acquired skills in horse training from seemingly every quarter, every school of thought and style. He has ‘tact’: knowing what to do, how to do it and when to do it; with patience and persistence. He and I have shared much knowledge and many “tricks” and tactics. However, I believe I have learned more from him than he has from me. Above all else, George is aided and guided by a true love of equines. George and I have worked together this summer on everything from foals to yearlings to two and three year olds to mature horses. We will be able to offer these horses for sale this fall, each of them knowing all and much more than might be expected of them at their various ages. I am so very pleased and I credit George Gouvas, with his skill, work ethic and professionalism for helping me arrive at this point … earlier and more completely than I could have done it myself. Regardless of the age of your horse or his background, regardless of the problem(s) you might be encountering, I encourage you to contact George Gouvas. Even if you live outside northeast Washington, George’s complete horsemanship is “worth the haul”. And, don’t wait ‘til your horses are age two or more to get them started. Have him spend a little time with your young ones when they are foals, weanlings and yearlings. This will pay major “dividends” as time goes by. George is also an expert in the care of horses’ hooves and related matters. George Gouvas can be contacted at 509-680-1883 or 509-675-1439. Sincerely,


877-885-2064 208-274-4632

On The edge Of COmmOn SenSe by Baxter Black, DVM

Veterinary Medicine Ain’t What It Used To Be! Over the years the number of large animal veterinarians has steadily declined. It is most evident in rural America and Canada. Many factors have contributed to this decline; the greatest is the change in the profession itself. The cost of schooling is daunting. The severe decline of male students til they are only 20% of the enrollment. The low number of “farm kids” that are interested in vet school, and the changing attitude of the graduates themselves. Back in the “good ol’ days” a rural veterinarian was on call 24/7. His life was controlled by the phone. It was hectic; days off, vacations, meetings, birthday parties and church was always planned with the knowledge that Dad might not be there. These vets were, what some would call dedicated, but most would recognize as workaholics. The new generation wants to “have a life!” Family time, days off, no night calls and a decent wage are part of their plan.

All of these factors have combined to fuel the decline in the number of rural veterinarians. But there is another large factor that has always been discouraging to rural vets, that is the reluctance of farmers and ranchers to willingly pay the vet a “reasonable fee.” Livestock have a calculable value, expressed as per head or dollars per pound. With the exception of the occasional ranch horse, there is no anthropomorphological attachment as exists in the pet world. This has always lead the cowman to try and treat the animal himself. If the critter dies, it only evens out what the vet would charge…no loss. But in the last three years things have changed! Droughts, herd depletion, and demand for beef of all kinds have caused the value of cattle to soar! Business for rural veterinarians has picked up and continues to grow. Maybe there’s hope. But the good cowman is being backed into a corner. He considers himself capable of pulling a calf, or treating the scours, deciding what vaccine to use, at least he always has…he even did a Caesarian once…’course the cow was dead. He’s a hard workin’, stubborn, do-it-yerself, thrifty cowman and it bothers him to ask for help, especially if it costs money! It goes against his cowboy mentality. What are the odds? “Harold, she’s been tryin’ to calve since noon. He’s worth 500 bucks when he hits the ground. It’s time. Unhook those chains and put down the come-along.” “But…” “Call Doc Smith.”“But…but…what if he charges mileage?”
