Shoot and Release

Krisean Performance Horses “Life With the Blue-Eyed Wonders� by Jill Smith . 3HADY 3LOPE 2OAD 3POKANE 7! s s JILLSMITH EARTHLINK NET


t’s a beautiful fall day as I head for the stallion corral and then stop dead in my tracks. Commander, my perlino Quarter Horse stallion, has his head over the fence and is engaging in serious conversation with Timer, my Arabian stallion. Now at my ranch when these two stallions aren’t quarreling over the fence about whose mare is whose, there is only one worse scenario! They’ve put their heads together to concoct some plan to “help� me with something! Even odder, today there are four large deer right on the other side of the fence who are also engaged in the conversation. Bucks! Its rutting season and they should be fighting over does right now not standing quietly together listening to horse talk. It seems to be some kind of meeting of the male minds. Oh dear! “Sooooo fellows, what’s up?� I inquire warily, knowing full well that something was a hoof. “Well, the boys and I have been talking.� Commander, my talking wonder said as he sidled up to my side of the fence. “We know that with the economy the way it is, you’re worried about having enough money to get all the winter hay in the barn. Timer here and I sure don’t want you to have to sell any mares to meet the bills.� Aha, I should have known it had something to do with mares! With stallions, it always has something to do with

mares! “So Timer and I have been talking to Buck here and his friends and we’ve come up with a plan to make hay money.� Commander continued, nodding toward his deer pals and consciously ignoring my dubious look. This ought to be good, I thought. Two non-cents horses and 4 bucks don’t equal a lot of cents. “We want to set up a ‘Shoot and Release Course’ in the back pasture.� Commander didn’t even pause to look my way. “Buck and his friends think that they’re in their prime and pretty fine specimens that any hunter would love to brag about bagging. We know that a lot of hunters don’t really care about eating Bambi, let alone the blood and guts of preparing the meat. They just want the thrill of shooting the darn thing! Oh sorry, Buck!�

With a quick reassuring look at Buck, Commander continued. “This is how it will work. The “weekend warriors� will come out and pay their fee and be issued their gun with 10 shots. Once they are in their positions, Buck and his friends will go tearing across the field and the hunters who have paid a pretty penny for this shooting pleasure, will blast away at them.� “That’s awful!� I cried. “What if some one actually hits them?!� Commander gave me one of those blue-eyed looks, “Do we really look like dumb animals?� I chose not to answer that question. “The ‘hunters’ will be shooting with paint ball guns, for your information.� Commander explained to his dumb blonde cowgirl. “When they ‘hit a buck’ the deer will fall over and play dead. You know, on their back, all four hooves straight up in the air. Then that’s where you come in. You rush the hunter right down to the deer and with your good picture taking skills you record the hunter with his “kill�. Then the happy hunter heads home with his trophy photo and we release the buck to be shot again.� I’m not often speechless, but I could not think of one thing to say. After several minutes where 6 large animals eyed me intensely, the only thing that came to mind was, “I know you’re in this for the hay bucks but what’s in it for the bucks?� “Well, they’d like a little of that hard earned hay in the middle of winter for themselves and their does. And then too, they’d like to do their share to help get more bucks flowing in this stalled economy. They’d like to think it’s all

about passing the buck not killing the buck!â€? Commander stated then hesitantly continued. “The bucks do have one more request, though.â€? I didn’t know how this conversation could get any more crazy or what else this misfit of hoof lunatics could possibly request but I couldn’t contain myself and blurted out, “ What?! They want bigger guns so your advertising slogan can be “More Bang for Your Buck’?!â€? “Noooo,â€? Commander’s blue eyes gave me the dumb blonde look again. “The bucks just want to make sure that on our ‘Shoot and Release Course’, the paint guns shoot red, white and blue paint. As they fall to the ground, they want to go down in history with people knowing that The All American Buck stops here!â€? I turned away. I had to leave. But then I thought, if congress can’t buck up our economy any more, maybe the animals do have a better idea‌

RIDE THE WEST - The Ranch Event 2011

en years later & Ride The West is still bringing together horsemen from all over the Pacific Northwest. This past July’s Ranch Event at the Four Mound Prairie Bison Ranch definitely brought the atmosphere of “Home, Home on the Range Where the Buffalo Roam” to life. The weather couldn’t have been better, the Trail Competitions were intense, & as the sun set on the last day of the show we agreed that we would do it all over again given the opportunity! Van Hargis, Ann Kirk, Steve Rother, Julie Jene’ & Ethan Storey gave stellar performances on every topic from cow sorting to reading your horse’s mind. Always a crowd favorite “Spanky” & Francesca did not fail to bring laughter & applause with their now “22 Trick” repertoire. Friday Night with the Stars, highlighting a Memorial to Susan Rae’s Mother Helen Inman included specialty performances by each of the clinicians, Rock N’ Pine Belgians, & McBride’s Quarter Horse Stallion “Jumping Jack Whiz” saluting Susan’s Mom as the riderless horse, lead into the arena by Susan & wearing her Mom’s last pair of cowboy boots backwards in the stirrups as a tribute to the fallen rider. It was a truly emotional moment for the entire family & guests that were in attendance.


aturday’s ACTHA Ride was a HUGE hit with 23 riders completing the 6 mile natural terrain trail course at the Ranch. In the Open Division, 1st Place went to Buck & Carmen Peone, truly an emotional moment for Carmen as the pinnacle of the work & effort that she has shared with her beloved horse. 2nd went to Linet Shields on “Dandy Lil Chick”, 3rd to Ginger Swisher riding “Caliber”, 4th to Melinda Thomas on “WF Splash of Cash” & 5th place to Terry Conkright on “Bansara”. In the Pleasure Division, 1st Place went to Michael Clark & “Dakota’s Gold”, 2nd place to Amy White on “Krila’s Perfect Skor”, 3rd place to Leeanne Shannon & “Bravo”, 4th Place to Debby Jackson riding “Wendy Daze” 5th Place to Barbara Brim on “Fannie Mae” & 6th Place to Linda Hamilton riding “Zippen & Steppin”. Jr. Division 1st Place went to Teresa Durheim on “Buzzard” & 2nd to Clara Durheim on “Reed” Best Dressed Horsewoman was Carmen Peone & Horseman was Terry Conkright. National Points, Cash & Prizes were donated by ACTHA, Ride the West, EZ-All & Big R Stores. This ride was terrific & we definitely want to bring ACTHA back again in 2012.


unday’s Fifth Annual XTreme Trail Competition sponsored by Will Rogers Saddlery & judged by Van Hargis, Ann Kirk & Steve Rother once again proved to challenge horses & riders. Lots of action, difficult terrain, & unusual obstacles brought out the best in our competitors. In the Open Division, third time’s the charm for Champion Keith Danielson of Hooper Crossing Ranch riding

“Chili Pepper Fox”. Keith & “Chili” rode to an incredible win & picked up the Championship Silver Buckle donated by Will Rogers Saddlery, Big R Stores Headstall & a cash prize. In case you’re interested, “Chili” is for sale. 2nd Place went to Linet Shields on “Dandy Lil Chick”, 3rd Place to Carmen Peone & Buck, 4th Place to Mark McKinnon & 5th Place to Gerry Cox. Youth Division winners were 1st Place Teresa Durheim, 2nd Place Clara Durheim, & 3rd Place Rayne Roberts. XTreme Trail is an event that we have grown & improved over the years. Look for details of next year’s competition coming after the first of the year. Cash & Prizes were donated by Ride The West, EZ-All & Big R Stores.


ur photographers for the Event Marcy McBride (mcbrideqh@ & Amy McLean ( captured some of the best moments of action throughout the weekend. Please contact them for the links to the photo albums that contain these pictures. They are tremendous & you can purchase photos & copies from either of them. What a fantastic job they both did!!

We appreciate all of their support over the years as well as that of our Major Sponsors Horse Previews Magazine & The Exchange weekly paper & Helen Boyd. Without their continued support & friendship, Ride The West would not have been able to continue for almost 10 years.

New Horses, Rough Country Whenever we introduce a new horse to the ranch, it often takes a while for them to adjust. The country where I live is pretty brushy, meaning cat claw, mesquite and cactus of all kinds. It is also riven with steep sides, arroyos, canyons and jagged rocks. I’d traded for a young horse and took him out for his first gather. He had been raised in corrals and was bamfoozeled by the rough terrain. We’d ridden about two miles with him snorting and stopping and sliding, whinnying for other horses to save him. We slid off a slope and hit a small arroyo at the bottom. He stood shaking. I was eggin’ him on, but to no avail. He wouldn’t move. Completely overwhelmed, he laid down in the sand like a cow! I sat still in the saddle with my stirrups on the ground. We had a short conversation, about a minute, then he took a deep breath and rose to the occasion. The South Dakota Badlands can overpower a horse, as well. Shorty took a green grulla gelding of his out to check cows on a Pine Ridge Reservation lease. That, too, is rough

country, mostly rocky and uneven. He trailered across the prairie and unloaded on a little flat at the edge of the pasture. They weren’t far from a big badland creek called Redstone, that drains a lot of that area. Laying off the side, he spotted a middle-sized Hereford bull. Shorty decided to push the bull on down the creek where he’d seen some cows grazing. It took a little prodding but they soon got the bull on a trail goin’ down the creek. The trail had a lot of bends and vertical cut badland walls. The bull started down on to a steep trail into the creek bed but then turned back the wrong way, right along the wall! Shorty loped back up the creek bank, hee-hawin’, hollerin’ and waving his arms to shush the bull. But, all of the hoo-rah spooked young horse who, in a moment of “Now or Never�, jumped the back and landed a’straddle of the bull! The bull lit out down the creek, the horse rolled off the bull, and Shorty rolled off the horse! The frightened horse, in panic climbed the bank and took off! Whilst crawling up the steep slide, Shorty had a vision of his best Hamley saddle hanging underneath the horse’s belly galloping for home. Which, of course, is what a good horse, with any common sense would do. But when Shorty topped the rim, there stood the inexperienced novice grulla, eyes wide and nostrils flaring, not twenty feet away. Somewhere in his equine brain he processed his options; Bull? Rock? Trailer? Mother and home? Not having any experience in his young life to compare this to, he actually walked up to Shorty, who touched the side of his face, and sighed. I guess he just needed a hug.

Ann Kirk’s - Backing For A Great Stop As summer slips to a close and the cool of autumn takes hold of our state, the temptation sets in to put the horses away for the winter and settle by the fireplace with a good book. But, if you are one who still wants to work with your horse, I have another lesson. This lesson will teach your young horse to back or will improve your backing in your older broke horse if necessary. The importance of a great backup for the trail riding horse (and for all other disciplines as well) cannot be expressed strongly enough. If you do not have a soft, immediate response when you take the slack out of the reins and ask your horse to take a few steps backward, you do not have a dependable cue for getting your horse to stop, or even to just slow down. This makes for an annoying, not to mention dangerous, ride when you are out on a trail. A good, solid backup is your control for any phase between going forward at whatever speed to backing up for however many steps you desire. When you are riding in the arena or in an open area, you can use the technique of disengaging the hip to stop your horse or even just to slow him down. But, when you are on a narrow trail and there is not room for turning, you must have your bit connected to the horse’s feet so you can stop and back whenever necessary to avoid danger.

As with most of the rein-to-feet connections I make in my Sensible Horsemanship Program, I am going to teach it from the ground first. It is easier to teach a good backup, one rein at a time. The Bridle Dance sequence is taught after the hip is disengaged, preferably while the feet are not quite stopped. It is easier to move the feet in the direction you want them to go if they are already moving. If the horse comes to a complete stop and then you ask it to back up, it can lock up at which time you will need to disengage the hip to get the feet to move again before directing them backwards. The rule here is “first get the feet to move, then get them to move consistently, then take them in the direction you want them to go”. Put your horse on the circle and take it through the whole sequence of the Bridle Dance. (See the articles on www. When you disengage the hip to stop, as soon as the hip steps over and you release, take the slack out as you step in next to his head and direct your hand towards the chest. Your shoulder should keep his neck straight as you apply pressure backwards until he takes a step, then release. Switch sides and repeat the sequence, eventually building to several steps back with a give at the end. In the beginning, the pressure will be a request. As he learns the right answer, vary the pressure to improve the connection to the feet. If he locks up and won’t move his feet, just continue the pressure back along his side to disengage his hip and try again until he takes that first step. Then praise, praise, praise! If you are working with an older horse that does not back

well, or at all, you have probably taught him not to back by unknowingly releasing him at the wrong time. When I apply pressure to ask the horse to back, I do not release that pressure until I get at least a lean in the right direction. Most young horses pick up backing pretty quick. But an “experienced” horse that has been taught to just stand and brace will take a little longer to teach them that the release only comes when they take a step back. When your horse is really good at the back up following the disengaging of the hip, you will need to alter the exercise to be sure he is backing from the rein pressure and not just because you are walking towards him. You can lead him forward and while he is still going forward, turn and take his rein close to the bit and ask him to back. Try to eliminate the pause between forward and back. Don’t come to a complete stop until he has backed up a few steps. Remember to switch sides so he gets soft on both reins. Next time we will move the backing to the saddle and talk about all the different uses of the back-up on the trail. Until then, enjoy your horse and stay safe. — God Bless, Ann For more information on Ann Kirk and her Sensible Horsemanship Program or to check out the New DVD— Sensible Trailer Loading, go to These lessons and others are available on the Sensible Horsemanship DVDs.

What is the Scoop on Spavin?


ameness in one form or another is the most common problem we deal with as veterinarians in performance horses. No matter the discipline you compete in, at some point during the career of your horse it will get sore. For a huge percentage the problem will be hock pain and more specifically spavin. Spavin is an arthritic condition that attacks the distal, or lowest 2 of the 4 hock joints. These two joints, the tarsal metatarsal joint and the distal intertarsal joint, are made up of rows of small cuboidal or squarish shaped bones. There is almost no motion in these joints. The pain is felt from the micro-motion they do undergo and the impact felt from the stride. The body tries to fix the problem by fusing them together. Fusion of these joints stabilizes the affected area and takes the pain away. Unfortunately it is very unreliable. I have seen horses fuse in under a year and I have seen others that still were not fused after ten years. Why is the hock so vulnerable to injury? Why does it affect such a wide variety of breeds of horses involved in such different disciplines? First of all the hock, also called the tarsus, is easily the most complex joint in the hind leg. The hind leg has 6 joints total. Most of them have 2 bones that are involved. In contrast there are 10 bones that make up the hock. There are also 4 separate joint compartments in the hock. This incredible complexity is the biggest contributing factor to its predisposition to injury. It is not hard to imagine how a high impact equine athlete can get sore in the hocks. One has only to watch a reining horse spin and slide and you will quickly appreciate the amount of torque a horse can generate and the hock must endure. But, if the high speed/high impact athlete gets sore why does the comparatively milder gait of the western pleasure or dressage horse still very commonly fall prey to hock soreness? In my opinion, for them, it is a matter of repetitive

motion, much like carpal tunnel in humans. There are many contributing factors that can increase the likelihood that your horse will develop hock pain the most obvious problem being conformation. Any deviation from ideal conformation, from the ground up, further stresses a joint that is susceptible to problems. Furthermore, the hock seems to be very susceptible to acute injuries. For some reason hocks seem to be “magnetically attracted” to fences, not to mention kicks from other horses. There are many different diagnostic tests that can be performed to diagnose hock pain. Some times it is blatantly obvious because the horse is very lame or has large swellings. Other times it is much more subtle. Very often the complaints we hear in the early stages of hock soreness are non-specific complaints like: “He is not getting up under himself”, or “he is not using his hind end”, “he is not getting or keeping his leads”, “he doesn’t want to move forward” etc. In all cases a full lameness work-up is necessary to determine the source, severity and prognosis for the problem. Feeling the leg, watching the horse move, flexion tests, nerve blocks, joint blocks, and radiographs are all important tools in diagnosing this or any lameness problem. Fortunately there are many different treatment options that can be applied to spavin. These include the use of NSAIDS such as Bute or Banamine and topical applications like Surpass. Oral supplements like Equithrive have proven to be useful in low-grade cases and for prevention. Injectable glucosamines such as Adequan are industry standards for treatment. Very often the use of intra-articular corticosteroids are the best option. Finally in non-responsive cases we are able to speed up what nature is trying to do and fuse the joint. It is also very common for horses with any hind limb lameness issues to have concurrent back pain from adjusting their stride. We very often recommend chiropractic work along with the hock treatments to speed the recovery process. The goal is to get your horse pain free so he will be happy, healthy, and able to reach his full potential. If you suspect hock problems give your vet a call and they will help get your horse on the road to recovery. We are here to help if you have questions! Dr. Bob Peters
