Spokane, Washington

ired by US and Canada’s #1 sire, Afire Bey V needs no introduction. Afire Bey V’s sons and daughters have been dominating the winner’s circle at the National level, for nearly 10 years. Emerald Afire is no exception. As a yearling, he was named Top 10 at US Nationals. Not only is Emerald beautiful and correct, he is also very athletic. He was on track to be a very competitive English Pleasure horse when he was injured during a routine turn out. He sustained two fractures to his right front pastern and had to be retired to the breeding shed before he had a chance to begin his performance career.

Emerald will be standing in Spokane for the 2011 breeding season. We will open his book to ten outside mares. His STUD FEE FOR THIS YEAR WILL BE  FOR live cover. Additional fees will be collected if we need to ship semen. Emerald is a Sweepstakes Nominated sire. He ISEXPECTINGFOALSTHISSPRINGSUMMER His first foal is due April 4th, 2011. Please call or email us for more information. To see additional pictures of Emerald and info on our breeding program, please visit our website at www. KriegerEquestrianCenter.com. Emerald will be standing in the Seven Mile area, just Northwest of Spokane. We would love to have you out for a visit.

Emeralds’ dam was a very successful Halter and English Pleasure horse. She is sired by the very pretty Bask son, Earth Windn Fire, and is out of a Tsatyr daughter. Her pedigree complements Afire Bey V by adding another cross to Bask and bringing in “pretty� from the Tsatyr line. Emerald has sired three foals. His oldest is now 4 years old and was named US National Top Ten in the mares class in 2009. His other two foals are younger and have not been shown, but they both have the qualities necessary to be competitive in both the halter and performance ring. His youngest son is a yearling and just sold to a farm in Canada. He will make his debut in the show ring this year. Emerald is tall and is passing his size on to his foals. He has a well shaped, upright neck, loose shoulders, and powerful hocks. His foals have his type, long shapely neck, and drive from behind as well. He is the prettiest headed Afire Bey V son that I have seen.

I N M E M O R Y - N I TA P E D E R S O N Painted Two Ranch of Warden, WA, ran by Roger and Nita Pederson; and put on the map by their stallion I'm a Hot Pepper Two, closes. Painted Two Ranch leaves a legacy of over 1000 foals. The Original Dam was Aprils Kricket and the last Stallion was Champaign Renegade; but it was I'm a Hot Pepper Two and Lucky Wish that brought fame. Nita Pederson passed away February 5, 2011 of an inoperable brain tumor just one year after Roger passed of Emphysema. For the past 30 years these two wranglers produced double gened foals and trained horses using a combination of techniques from Richard Shrake, John Lyons and Clinton Anderson. Their unique teamwork made them known for horses that were easy to handle on the ground and under saddle. Friends of the Painted Two Ranch are welcome to attend a memorial service for Nita on April 16, 2011 at 3:00 pm at the Seventh Day Adventist Church in Moses Lake, Washington.

Welcome to the 9th Annual Ride The West The Ranch Event 2011 Picture it....blue skies during the day and beautiful sunsets at night.... the sights, sounds and smells of horses and YEP... even watching the buffalo roam! This is Ride the West - The Ranch Event July 22-23-24. This year, we are touting it as “The Ranch Event” as we are holding the show at the Four Mound Prairie Bison Ranch, a true working buffalo, cattle and hay Ranch Northwest of Spokane right above Riverside State Park. Talk about ambiance!! Between the Back Country Horseman’s working camp, our two trail competitions, outdoor BBQs, cow clinics, shopping, entertainment, camping, and comraderie, this weekend is sure to have something for everyone! We’re bringing back one of our most requested clinicians, Mr. Van Hargis from the Lone Star State of Texas. His knowledge, personna, expertise and Texas drawl has made him a favorite at past shows. It’s been four years since Van visited the Northwest, and this year we are especially grateful to Van for spearheading the Scholarship Fund in my Mother’s name to be given to a graduating 2012 senior pursuing a career in the Ag Field. Friday night, you can join Van and Ann Kirk for “A Night with the Stars” Scholarship Fund Raiser. Tickets are $20 and include a catered BBQ Dinner, and admission to the evening show featuring Van and Ann. After performances to music,

both clinicians will engage in an informal Q&A and Meet & Greet. Bring your camera if you would like a photo. This will be a really nice kick-off to the Show, and offer you an informative and entertaining night with family, friends and two of our Horse Industry Greats!!! Four separate student clinics will take place giving you the opportunity to Ride with the Pros. Thursday, pre-show from 4-8pm Ann Kirk will hold a “Sensible Solutions to Trail Riding” clinic. Ten students will ride for four hours with Ann in our Indoor Arena working on horsemanship and trail skills, obstacles, spookiness and other issues. Cost for Horse & Rider is $150, auditors may attend for the normal show day ticket price of just 5 bucks.

Experience Riverside State Park, Your Recreation Destination by Ken Carmichael On Sunday, May 15th from 9am to 4pm there will be an open house at Riverside State Park, Spokane called “Experience Riverside State Park, Your Recreation Destination�. The public is encouraged to visit seven venues throughout the park that highlight the diversity of the park and the many opportunities to recreate. One venue will be at the Equestrian Area at the south end of the park. Inland Empire Back Country Horsemen (IEBCH) will be the primary host and sponsor. Several activities are planned for the Equestrian Area. Ride The West will sponsor pony rides. On the half hour there will be a 45-60 minute guided equestrian tour of the designated Equestrian Area at the south end of the park (bring your own horse) and there will be an opportunity for new comers to horses to get up close and personal with a horse. We will also be providing information about trails and trailheads in Riverside, the proposed Riverside equestrian camping area, Leave No Trace, methods of horse confinement, equestrian trail and trailhead etiquette, S.C.O.P.E.

These other venues will highlight bicycling, boating, canoeing, kayaking, camping, hiking, orienteering, early American culture and off road vehicles. There is something for everyone. Riverside State Park is the second largest state park in Washington. There are 8900 acres with 83 miles of trails and back roads and 7 equestrian trailheads, all very near Spokane. It is a great place to enjoy our horses. We want to encourage participation by all equestrians in the area so spread the word through groups that you belong to.

Ann Kirk’s SENSIBLE SPRING TUNE-UP Spring 2011, are you ready to ride? If you are like me, I usually put the horses away for the most part during the winter and spend the time catching up on all the office and house work I don’t get done during the summer. But, when the weather starts looking nicer, I am ready to get back in the saddle. That is why I have the horses and why I spend all that money feeding them. It is so I can get on and go ride. It’s my right, right? And they should appreciate the expense I have put into them and all the cold, slick days I endured to go out and give them food. So it should be understood that I own them and care for them and I should not have any trouble riding them when that is all I ask in exchange. They should be grateful that they have it so good. Who wouldn’t want a job where you usually only work 1-2 hours per day a few days a week, have most winter months, rainy days and weekdays off with all expenses paid? Great fantasy! Horses are horses, not people! They don’t think like we do, respond like we do or expect like we do. So if you want to make sure your first rides in the spring are good ones, take a little time to refresh your mount’s memory. Unless you have one of those rare horses that you can leave for months at a time and they never cause you trouble when

you decide to ride, the time spent refreshing will definitely pay off. Let me share some of the things I do before my first rides to assure my safety. Most of my horses winter in a large wooded hilly pen of several acres where they water from a spring that runs year round. Because they are running in a herd, and not getting caught often, they tend to revert to more of their natural way of thinking. So I expect the horse I chose to be a little (or a lot) more concerned about separating from the others than he was all summer when I rode him regularly. The first thing I want to do is get him focusing on me instead of thinking about getting back to the herd. And the best place for this, in my opinion, is the round pen. I love the round pen. It is so much easier on my body to work the horse loose for awhile than to have him pulling or jerking on me while I try to get his attention and gain control. The round pen allows me to let him be emotional while drawing his focus to me by changing directions, doing inside/outside turns and stopping on command. Remember, keeping him from being emotional is not the emphasis. It is natural for a horse to be upset when he is separated from the herd. Teaching him to control his emotions enough to follow my lead is what I am looking for through these exercises. So I take my horse to the round pen with a lesson in mind to work on. I do not just let him run around. I get in with him and work on reconnecting specific cues that I have already taught him. As he settles in and relaxes, I get my hands

on him and take him through a refresher of the sacking out lessons. I may not spend much time here. If the foundation was laid correctly, he will give me his attention and focus on what I am asking. When I am satisfied that he is comfortable and controlled, I will bridle him and go through the bridle work. Again, I might only spend 10-20 minutes depending on how responsive he is. I am just going through my checklist to make sure I will be safe in the saddle. Next comes the saddle. Depending on your horse’s level of training and previous acceptance, this can be a quick refresher or a fairly long lesson. Some horses just don’t do well with the saddle. And the longer it has been between saddlings, the more careful you must be. Know for sure he is okay with the saddle before stepping on. Never just cinch up the saddle, mount up and hope to ride off. It’s really not worth the risk. Even just walking him forward 10 steps and turning him both ways can avoid a wreck. It is best to send him off on a line, move him up to a trot and make some quick turns to be sure he is not feeling pinched before attempting to mount. Once I am in the saddle, I start by moving the hip with the rein right and left. I might only do this once or twice or I might do it several times, depending on my horse. If all is well, I immediately start walking and then trotting serpentines which I described in my last article. If at any time, I feel my horse loading up for a wreck and I’m not confident in the saddle, I just step down and work more from the ground. There are no trophies for getting hurt.

When my horse warns me that he is not ready for the riding step, I must listen. Because of the unique connection between the Sensible Horsemanship ground work with the bridle and the beginning riding basics, I can work him through the blow-up from the ground. Whereas I might need to back off when in the saddle to avoid getting hurt, from the ground I can persist until he works through the emotions to get the right answer. When he is ready, I can safely get back on and enjoy the rest of the ride. It depends on your horse how many days you will have to do this before you can just go out, saddle up and go. Your horse might need 2 hours the first day, 45 minutes the next and only 15 minutes the next. Then you’re good to go for the rest of the summer. Some horses never get to that point and others can just be saddled and ridden almost from the start. If in doubt, warm him up and don’t take the chance. When you compare a short warm-up time with a stay in the hospital, a broken leg or maybe even a broken neck, it is a very small price to pay for safety. If you want to get more ideas, come see me at my Sensible Horsemanship Spring Tune-up Clinic in April. Bring a friend and enjoy the weekend. Until next issue, God Bless and be safe. — Ann See this lesson demoed at the Spring Tune-up Clinic April 8, 9 & 10 at the Four Mounds Bison Ranch.

Successful Rescues By Mary Balsack

We read in the papers and hear on the news about horses and ponies being rescued. We hear pleas from rescue groups to help to feed the unwanted horses and to save the horses from slaughter, but we never hear the success stories behind some of these throw away horses. I rescued my first PMU in 2004. She was a yearling Belgian Quarter Horse saved from a PMU (pregnant mare urine, used to make female hormones) farm in Canada. She was a sweet, wonderful but unhandled yearling who turned out to be a wonderful riding and driving horse. A year later I adopted a PMU mare from a ranch in Canada which had lost its contract with the pharmaceutical company that produces hormones. Hundreds of mares were put out of work in mid breeding season. Pregnant mares were being shipped to slaughter. That spring my Belgian PMU mare gave birth to a gorgeous Belgian filly. So now I had three PMU rescues. What do you do with the resKitty, aka Cherish Me Cheeko with Dr. cues? Well I set out Walter Buhl, her very proud new owner to prove that these from Portland.

horses are not just meat horses like so many so called horsemen call them. My first filly, Kitty, grew to be a wonderful horse. For the past three years Kitty, aka Cherish Me Cheeko. This is my I have showed her first rescue that is nw in Portland. She has been high point Driving Horse both in in pleasure driving the Northeast Zone and Washington State and trail in hand. Horsemanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Assoc. in 2009 and 2010. She was used by my trainer for driving lessons and trail riding. She turned out to be an all around horse, getting the best of both the Belgian and Quarter Horse breeds. We have won many driving classes throughout the state, winning high point Pleasure driving horse both in the Washington State Horsemanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Association and the Northeast Zone of the WSH for the past two years. This year after attending only two shows and winning almost every class we entered. She not only is a wonderful driving horse but a great trail horse and could have also been a great reining or cow horse. She now has moved on to a wonderful new home in Portland. She will teach her new owner how to drive and will now show how successful she can be as a combined driving horse (a competition where horses and ponies drive in three

I started showing GG in halter when she was just a yearling and she has won many halter classes and has been high point in halter both in the zone and state almost every year. This year she did what very few draft horses ever do. I showed her in under saddle classes, trail and Western Pleasure. I sent her to my trainer for a month of training in March. My trainer had never broken a draft horse and being only a little over five foot tall, GG showing halter at the Fist Of Silver Show in Spokane she was a little anxious about in July. Photo by Pixeldust Studios. breaking this big horse. With only six weeks of training GG was broke to ride and not just broke to ride, but broke to do things that takes twice as long to train a light horse to do. GG had mastered roll backs, turn on the haunches and side pass. GG was being ridden on trails and doing trail courses. Nothing seemed to phase her. GG went to her first show in mid April, and shown under saddle with just less than two months of training and with myself riding her after only being on her back a few times. GG was second in a Green Western Pleasure Walk Jog class and did quite well on her first trail course ever. I showed GG at a few shows in Walk Jog Western Pleasure classes throughout the summer and even after over a month off due to picking up a bug at a show, with no schooling, continued to prove that she can do it all. I showed her at the Spokane Interstate Fair in halter and riding classes and even did the gaming classes. I think she had a blast doing the games and trail. I myself had never done gaming classes and I had so much fun and it was so easy with her. She gets so excited when she sees a trail course I can hardly hold her back. She wants to do it and will do most of it with almost no cues from me. She just figures it all out and does things perfect. She tries so hard and loves it. I have had trainers admire her in western pleasure because for as big as she is, she is as light as can be in my hands. She is safe and so easy and smooth to ride. One of my friends rode her and said she was like riding butter.She just amazes me with everything we try. She is game for just about anything and beautiful to boot. These are three very successful and wonderful rescue horses, not just good for meat horses. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a shame that so many people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t appreciate rescue horses and steer away from adopting. They can be missing out on a wonderful horse. I am so glad I took a chance and adopted my two horses. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t imagine life without my GG and Teddy. I miss Kitty my driving horse, but know she is going to help spread the word about how successful a rescue horse can be. When youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking for another horse, save one, and support rescue. A rescue horse will give you so much and make you feel so good to know you saved a life. Look beyond the skin and bones, look beyond the scruffy coat and save a horse.

Equine Reproductive Misconceptions


talk to a lot of people about breeding horses. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m surprised sometimes at the misconceptions and lack of understanding about the fundamentals of the equine reproductive system. With the economic recession, the lack of a bottom (price) in the horse market and the unwanted horse issue today some might say, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Should we even be breeding horses?â&#x20AC;? But, there are still a lot of people raising horses. Jed McKinlay, DVM My personal feelings are that there will always be a place for good horses. We just need to be responsible enough in our breeding to make sure all the horses we raise have the opportunity to have a good life. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s talk about some breeding basics. Horses are seasonal breeders. 90% of mares will cease to cycle when the days grow short (in the fall). Then around the first of April in

our latitude they start to cycle again. There are always exceptions to every rule in equine reproduction, such as the 10% of mares that cycle all through the winter. Stallions experience a decrease in the size of their testicles during the shorter days, and are relatively less fertile then. We often manipulate mares to cycle and stallions to be more fertile earlier by using artificial lighting techniques. This effort is worthwhile for those who need to raise foals that are born as close to January 1st as possible. If this is practiced with stallions you can expect a decrease in sperm production later in the breeding season. If mares foal early in the year (while the days are still short) they will usually cycle naturally after foaling. Mares have an estrus cycle every 21 days, give or take a day or two either way. This means that they ovulate and therefore have the opportunity to become pregnant every 3 weeks. If your mare conceives she can be declared positively pregnant as early as 12-14 days following breeding with the ultrasound. It is important to ultrasound her then as it is the best time to diagnose and deal with twins. Their first estrus cycle may occur when they are long yearlings, and certainly as 2 year olds. After foaling, mares will have an estrus cycle in about 10 days. Their gestation period is 340 days on the average. This figure (340 days) is what the â&#x20AC;&#x153;due dateâ&#x20AC;? is calculated from.

It’s not uncommon for them to give birth 2 weeks prior (326 days) and up to 4 weeks after (368 days) after this. These periods are considered normal. We get calls every year from owners whose mares are way over this “normal” time frame. It is wise to have things examined at this point but even after long gestational periods many mares go on to have perfectly normal foals. There is the potential for complications if and when they go too long, or foal too early. We sometimes refer to these as “high risk” pregnancies. Fertility is quite variable among mares and stallions. There are many individuals who are quite fertile, those who are extremely fertile, those that are sub-fertile and some who are infertile. If you have questions or concerns about the fertility status of your mare or stallion it is best to consult a qualified veterinarian to assist in assessing these things. There are many objective tests that can be run to help remove the questions and guess work. One final misconception I will mention is that mares should be bred every day. This practice allows for more contamination and inflammation in the mare’s uterus and less sperm per ejaculate from the stallion. These things have a negative correlation to pregnancy. Mares should ideally be bred once, (at the right time) just prior to ovulation. This is especially true when dealing with individuals of questionable fertility. We are here to help if you have questions! Dr. Jed McKnlay

Serving North Idaho & Eastern Washington

45"/53*.#-& Master Farrier, trainer and facilitator, will make the journey from Tennessee to Post Falls, Idaho for this hands-on clinic for owners, horses and farriers. A Tennessee Walking Horse lover for his entire life, Stan has spent much of his adult life developing his trade as a farrier and as a Walking Horse trainer. Last year Stan traveled to Germany to present to TWH owners and farrier under the sponsorship of TWHBEA. Stan will assess horses and work one-on-one with owners and horses on Saturday. On Sunday he will instruct farriers on correct shoeing methods for the gaited horse.

U Are your horse’s feet trimmed and balanced so they are comfortable? U Do you know what type, weight and size shoe your gaited horse wears for optimum performance? U Did you know that a simple shoeing technique can square up a horse that paces? U Is your gaited horse “Gaiting” or “Trotting”? U Is your gaited horse being trimmed to compliment their lateral movement or being trimmed as if they were a diagonal moving horse?

THE HORSE SCULPTOR I wonder if he starts at the head? I mean to sculpt a horse that will one day stand in front of the stockyard gate. Or does he picture in his mind the kind of horse it will be? Would he start at the hooves instead, one leg at a time, stroking, flexing, molding, making the limb yield to him until it feels just right? Right front or left, then gliding back, the skilled hand following the shoulder to the flank, to the stifle, hock, cannon, fetlock, pastern, finally pressing until the hind foot gives itself up and lets the sculptor have his way. Then does he go to the head? Surely he must. Like the masthead on a ship, a lookout in the crowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nest, the faceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expression will be a clue as to what to expect from those powerful limbs that drive the beast through the picture in his mind. Does he envision tension, fear, suspicion, acceptance, trust, fury, devotion or resignation in those eyes, in his stance, in his nostrils? Will he break and run?

Will the sculptor have to start again from the broken pieces? Using firm but gentle caresses until the nose, the neck, and the mane become smoothly connected. Across the back, over the rump, down the leg, his practiced touch puts the sculpture back together. Back to the head. The halter, a piece of artwork in its own right, the rawhide plaiting climbing over the nose, tied on the left side, strong and commanding yet fragile as a reata. It establishes a palpable connection between sculptor and subject. Or, taking artistic license, does he go right to a bosal? Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the sculptor, he can do what he wants! He is allowed to proceed to the blanket if he wishes, the soaking, the cinching and saddle. Maybe beef him up more, put him in a snaffle, shoot, why not set a rider on his back! After all, it is the sculptor that is responsible for the final result. All these Charlie Russell thoughts went through my mind as I watched the horse trainer putting on a demonstration in the middle of the ring. We, the audience, studied and listened as he went through the motions explaining, in the language of the horse, how he was sculpting a new one from the disorganized 4-legged collection of muscle and bone that stood before him in the arena now. Hide and hair, or clay and wire? Ray Hunt or Frederick Remington? The casting and creation of a horse requires an eye for deception, a hand for communication, and a deep knowledge of what it takes to mold imagination into flesh and blood. www.baxterblack.com
