In just her first year to compete in futurities, Nichole Mulligan has won two of the three she’s entered on her homegrown super star, Gucci. The 5 year-old palomino daughter of the leading barrel horse sire, Dash Ta Fame, out of VF Packin A Six Fire- a daughter of Bullys On Fire, which she personally owns. She won the WBRA Futurity earlier this year in Moses Lake, WA. Placing third in the average at the Sancup Futurity in Pasco, WA and then winning the prestigious Barrel Daze in Walla Walla, WA. She won the first round at the Sandcup with a smokin’ 16.9 winning the Futurity and the open division. “It’s been an emotional and humbling experience to do so well on a horse that I’ve bred, raised and trained,” Mulligan said. Nichole may be new to the futurity game, but the talented colt starter and mounted shooter had tons of horsemanship and competitive experience to see her to championship honors at the richest futurity in the Northwest pocketing over $14,276. Having the competitive mindset and the experience in competition was all she needed to be consistent and win. As a youngster she competed in junior rodeo and did a little high school rodeo as well. Nichole then took a 20 year break to get her horse training business going. Her main concern was to make it as a trainer. Winning all three of the BCHI Colt Starting challenges she competed in, really jumpstarted her career. Getting horses from all over the country to start and fix, she soon became known for her ability to tame the untamable. During all of this, she never stopped dreaming about barrel racing and having that perfect cross to run and win on. Not getting much time to race she started dabbling in the breeding, buying select mares and researching bloodlines. “I love the cross between speed and turn” Mulligan says, “I love to have them hunt that barrel from the back forty and have them go in and drag their butt.” Researching bloodlines for the past 15 years she feels she’s perfected the perfect horse for what she loves. A smart,

willing nature, that loves to turn a barrel. Being a horsewoman foremost, all of her horses have that same personality trait: quiet, extremely broke and that inhale-a-barrel attitude! She prides herself in the fact that she can sell these horses, and people can go on to win on them. Her first big sale was a little mare named Kat. She rode Kat for over 6 years before turning her over to Jenny Smith in Los Angeles. Kat now places or wins wherever she goes. She also made the decision to sell Gucci to Nicole Riggle. Nicole has plans to qualify her for the prestigious “American”, and on the road to the NFR. Mulligan retained 2 embryos to the amazing mare Gucci. “Being able to ride her dam, “Vegas”, and Gucci it’ll be interesting to see how Gucci’s babies ride as well” Mulligan says. She’s realizing that she doesn’t have the time to travel to really get her horses out there to show the world how amazing they are, so letting them go to people who can really showcase their talents is the next best thing. Having own get of Judge Cash, On A Gator, Dr Nick Bar, Frenchmans Guy, As Good As Nick Gets, Eddie Stinson, Special Leader, PC Frenchmans Hayday, to name a few, Nichole has her hands full for a few years to come. Always having something for sale in just about every age group, she loves to try new bloodlines and see what fits for her future breeding purposes. Nichole is taking outside horses for starting, tuneups, and barrel training. www.customcowgirltraining.com is her website or contact through email firstname.lastname@example.org

Ann Kirk Sensible Saddle Basics – Part 2 Can you believe it is July of 2015 already? It has been a great year thus far. We had a great Spring Tune-up Clinic in May and I thank all those who attended. Because I am committed to helping people enjoy and develop safe partnerships with their horses, clinics and lessons bring me tremendous satisfaction when I see people get great results and major breakthroughs with their equine friends. If I can help you in any way, please don’t hesitate to contact me so we can chat. In my last article in April, I talked a lot about the principles I use when saddling and this time I will explain how I apply them. Let’s get started. If you have done emotional training using the Bridle Dance, this will be the logical next step. Take your bridled horse, saddle, pad and cue whip to the Round Pen. Warm your horse up with the Bridle Dance. When he is standing quietly, reach around him at the girth and give him a light squeeze. Be sure to have hold of the rein on your side and don’t squeeze too tight to start. Move his hip and switch sides. You can also use a soft lead rope or the sheet. While keeping contact with the rein, put it around his girth. When you have both ends together, apply pressure and release. If he moves, disengage his hip to a stop. When he’s comfortable standing, have him walk on the circle and apply pressure by pulling the 2 ends towards you. You can even progress to ‘tying’ the sheet or lead around the girth by just wrapping the ends around each other. Don’t

actually tie a knot as this can cause too strong of a reaction in the beginning. If you just wrap the ends, they will loosen on their own or you can quickly release it with one hand if need be. Switch sides often. Remember to also move the pressure back some on the belly where the rear strap will eventually hang. Be prepared to move the hip away if this produces any kicking or bucking. Another great exercise is to have them walk while you have your arm over their back. From the left side take the rein in your left hand and turn the whip so it comes out the bottom of your right hand. Start the horse forward, place your right arm over his back at the girth. Or place your arm over first and then cue him forward, using the whip on your right hip if he doesn’t move off the kiss. Squeeze with the right arm and push into him with your right side to simulate the legs or the girth around him. Start soft and progress to a full-out bear hug. Disengage his hip with the rein and switch sides.

JULY 2015 • HORSE PREVIEWS • PAGE 7
Some horses get really worried about this exercise as they are used to you leading them, not walking that far behind. If they rush forward, just work the bridle, disengage their hip and start again. This is a great transitional exercise for getting them used to you being in control from behind their ‘drive-line’. They are used to you being the leader when you are near their front half, but when we ride, we are controlling them from the back half. This will really help to change that and you can work the shoulders, the back-up and all the bridle work more like you were in the saddle with this exercise. Don’t hurry! When he is comfortable being squeezed and having something tightened around him, put the blanket and the saddle on him. If you’ve sacked him well, you should be able to throw it up like you would on a well broke horse. Usually, I will hook the reins out of the way and attach a 12 ft lead to the left side of his bit. I use a continuous rope rein and I don’t want him to pull away from me when he’s only partly saddled. By using a lead, I am able to get away from him if he does over react, yet still have some control.
bridle, let him out to the end of the lead or just let go if you think you might get hurt. If you have prepared him properly, he should work easily and without great concern but if he doesn’t, it doesn’t mean you did anything wrong. Remember, you are working with a horse and horses often revert to what comes natural. I do at least 10 reps of the Bridle Dance before stopping him and tightening the cinch some more. Then repeat the 10 reps until you have the saddle fairly tight. I won’t cinch them as tight as I will before mounting as I want the experience to be positive. I also want the back cinch up at least another notch from where I started. Eventually, I will tighten the back cinch fairly snug so the horse can get used to the whole package, but not always the first time. If all has gone well and he is working through the Bridle Dance smoothly, let him wear the saddle for 20-30 minutes while you work with him at a walk. Then take it off. It has been a great first lesson. Saddle him a few times, even in the same day, before moving him up to higher speeds. Next time, we will talk about how to progress him up to trotting and loping and some controlled and freestyle sacking while saddled. These are exercises you will use to be sure he is comfortable with the saddle before you mount. Until then, stay safe and take time to enjoy your days of training. — God Bless your day, Ann Kirk
When the saddle is on, hold it with the right hand and walk him a few feet with your left hand on the left rein. Disengage his hip and switch sides. Do the same on the right side. Keep switching until he’s okay with just carrying the saddle. If he seems really nervous, walk him a few steps, stop and remove the saddle so the emotions will come down.

and even the most timid children find courage, joy, love and trust when they are around these special animals. The HEART horses typically have few options due to the injuries, illnesses or diseases they have. The organization has saved horses suffering from starvation, problems like laminitis, career-ending severe injury, and has even raised funds for surgery. One horse was one day from scheduled euthanasia but was donated to HEART instead, shipped by the owners from Colorado to Spokane in hopes that, with the help of HEART’s expert veterinarians, he could be saved. He was saved and went on to teach many riders. Sometimes owners just can’t keep horses they love due to their own illnesses or advanced age. At age 84, one donor wanted her horse to have a forever home where she knew he would be cared for and loved, and that is where he is. HEART is committed to becoming more self-sustaining and is exploring fundraising business opportunities but charitable donations are critical to the survival of the organization. Volunteers care for the horses and staff fundraisers like HEART’s major community event, the “Wild West Kids Carnival” held in the fall. Fundraisers and donations generate the funds needed to care for the rescue horses and provide scholarship funds, but anyone can help: sponsor a horse, sponsor a child, volunteer, donate.

How to Prepare for Unwanted Problems When Rescuing Unwanted Horses
agel e s s horsemanship
Dr. Jake Lynch, DVM, McKinlay Peters Equine Hospital
The unwanted horse continues to be a major problem in the equine industry. Unfortunately, there are no easy solutions, and the problem is likely to persist. For those benevolent individuals willing to rescue and rehabilitate unwanted horses, there are some important considerations to be aware of before embarking on this journey. Dr. Jake Lynch, DVM, And it is a journey; the easiest McKinlay Peters Equine Hospital part is saying yes when your emotions won’t let you say no, but then what? You need to be prepared for your sake, the sake of the rescued horse(s), and the horses that you may already have. One of the biggest concerns is taking in a horse that may be carrying or exposed to an infectious disease. Horses that are rescued from a sale yard environment are at a much greater risk of acquiring (and spreading) an infectious disease. At the sale yard, horses are stressed from transport, a new environment, overcrowding, and finding their place in a new
group of horses, and they are often malnourished and not vaccinated adequately to begin with. All of this combines to create an environment conducive for the spread of infectious disease. It is imperative that you have a place to properly quarantine your newly acquired rescue for three weeks. Most diseases will rear their ugly heads by this time after a horse has been exposed. Proper quarantine procedures entail keeping the rescue horse isolated as far away as possible from your other horses. The flu virus can spread from one end of the barn to the other by a coughing horse. Separate tools for cleaning and grooming should be used. Do not handle the rescue horse and then your horses, so clean and feed the rescue horse last. Cleaning your water buckets and water troughs is very important. Pathogenic bacteria and viruses last longer in water and cool, moist environments than they do when exposed to hot, dry and sunlit conditions. Also, make sure your current horses are up to date on their vaccinations prior to bringing in a new horse. Be on the look out for any coughing or nasal discharge. Also monitor the horses eating and drinking. If the horse’s temperament allows, daily monitoring of the temperature will help identify disease early. If the horse has a temperature over 101.5F, goes off feed, has nasal discharge or a cough, it is time

to call your veterinarian. One disease that is prevalent at the sale yard is commonly known as strangles. This disease can create significant hardship. An outbreak can last for months, and it may take a considerable investment in time, money, and labor before the disease is eliminated. Strep equi subspecies equi is the bacterium responsible for causing strangles. Most horses will develop clinical signs such as nasal discharge, fever, and swelling of the retropharyngeal lymph nodes four to five days after exposure; however, in some horses it may take up to 2 weeks. Another complicating factor is that a horse may be an asymptomatic carrier. A horse can look and act apparently normal, yet still be shedding bacteria. Given this fact, and that it can be such a devastating condition to deal with, it is advisable to test any new horse for strangles if it comes from a questionable source. A polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test is now available for strangles and should be performed prior to your horse leaving quarantine. A PCR test from a nasal swab sample is more sensitive than a culture, and is a good way to screen for possible asymptomatic carriers. The test is not 100% reliable, but it will greatly decrease the odds of bringing an infected animal into your herd. If the horse is positive, additional testing which may include endoscopy and bacterial culture may be indicated. Many rescue horses show obvious signs of neglect and are usually under weight. The body condition score (BCS) of horses is often graded on a scale of 1-9, the Henneke scale. One indicates a severely emaciated animal, whereas a nine indicates a morbidly obese animal. A four to five is an ideal BCS. Initially, rescue horses that have a BCS of one or

two should not be given a lot of feed, especially grain and concentrates. Horses given too much feed too quickly, or feed high in starches and sugars may develop life threatening electrolyte imbalances from the sudden increase in glucose and insulin. This is most likely to occur in the first few days of feeding. After ten days, the horse’s system should be better adjusted. Start by feeding a ¼ ration of alfalfa hay divided into 4-6 small feedings. A normal ration would be approximately 2% of a horse’s body weight. Estimating a horse’s weight by using a weight tape will get you in the ballpark. Gradually increase the amount to a normal ration over the course of 10 days. When the horse is starting to gain weight, which can be monitored by using a weight tape, concentrates may be slowly introduced. However, most horses will do fine with good quality hay and a trace mineral salt block. Parasitism is another common issue to address in the rescue horse. It may have been years since the horse was last dewormed. Submitting a fecal sample to your veterinarian is a good place to start in determining your horse’s parasite burden. Horses with heavy parasite loads should not be dewormed with certain dewormers. Young horses heavily parasitized with roundworms/ascarids are at particular risk of developing a lifethreatening impaction if the worms are killed off too quickly. Fenbendazole (Safeguard® or Panacur®) will kill the parasites off at a slower rate. An initial, single dose of Fenbendazole given at 5mg/kg is a good choice. A few weeks later, a once a day, 5-day double dose (10mg/kg) of fenbendazole may be given to kill encysted strongyles and migrating ascarids. It is always advisable to consult your veterinarian prior to deworming a weak and debilitated animal. After the horse is considered free of infectious disease, other general health measures should be taken care of such as vaccinations, dental work, and hoof trimming. Be aware that the horse may have behavioral issues that may need to be addressed by a trainer. Other problems such as chronic laminitis or arthritis may also be present. An examination of the horse by your veterinarian is important, and if at all possible, this should be done prior to rescuing the horse so that you know the challenges you may face. Also, don’t forget to get a bill of sale! It will be difficult to get a brand inspection and health certificate without it. Rescuing an animal in need can be a rewarding experience, but you should know what you are getting into before you say “yes.” There are many precautions and considerations you must take to help ensure a successful outcome. Good luck and happy trails!

Riverside State Park Foundation By Ken Carmichael, Inland Empire Back Country Horsemen
To: Don Hock, Director Washington State Parks & Recreation 1111 Israel Road, SW Olympia, WA 98504 Dear Sir, Riverside State Park, one of the largest parks in the system,is well known for a variety of recreational, cultural, historical and environmental features. One of these is the equestrian opportunities offered by the miles of trails and the equestrian area. In June 1998 the Land Classification process identified a portion of the park as an equestrian area in recognition of the value and need for such facilities in the Spokane area. I have documents dating back to 2008 when we started work to truly develop this resource. However it was not until Manager Chris Guidotti, came on board that things really took off. The purpose of this letter is to clearly document the success of this venture and the very important part that Manager, Chris Guidotti, and Ranger Moose Hempel, have played in this activity. In pointing these two men out we do not want to in any way minimize the support that was provided by the rest of the fine Riverside State Park staff that put hours into

this project. First, I must state that the entire project is a result of combining the labor, talent, equipment, tools, leadership and financial resources of Riverside State Park, the Riverside State Park Foundation (RSPF) and the Inland Empire Chapter of Back Country Horsemen of Washington (IEBCH). Each of these organizations have put forth extensive efforts working together to make this happen. As we know partnerships between State Parks and the community are essential for State Parks success. But it starts and ends with the leadership and commitment of Chris and Moose. Without them nothing would have happened. The project is really broken into two major components. First is the equestrian campground that has been developed over two stages resulting in 20 campsites with camp host facilities, restrooms, corrals and shelter. The second is the arena area that includes a 140x240’ arena, 60’ round pen, trail course, announcers stand, with sound system, ground clearing and roads. Chris has managed much of the funding, including grants, and actual construction of the campground. He found the initial private grant to start the arena area. Without Chris’s drive and leadership this would not have been done. Nor would it have been done if Moose had not been there every step of the way supporting the volunteers with equipment, knowledge and labor when we needed it. Their combined encouragement and backing as we pulled these resources together was essential. But, we are not done. I know that Chris and Moose will be there as we continue to develop the equestrian area and the wonderful resources that Riverside State Park provides to the equestrian community. On behalf of the Riverside State Park Foundation, the Inland Empire Chapter of Back Country Horsemen of Washington and the entire equestrian community, we want to thank Chris and Moose for their dedication, hard work and leadership in making this project happen. These two men should be congratulated on the fine work they are doing for State Parks and the community. Sincerely, Ken Carmichael Riverside State Park Foundation Inland Empire Back Country Horsemen cc: Tom Ernsberger, Regional Manager Chris Guidotti, Park Manager, Moose Hempel, Ranger

On The edge Of COmmOn SenSe by Baxter Black, DVM
Snafflebit Futurity Have you ever been drivin’ a set of pasture cattle down the lane? Then you notice them stringin’ out longer and longer, driftin’ over into the ditches along the side ‘til pretty soon you’re a half mile ahead of the lead steer. You look back at the feller you put ridin’ drag. Over the backs of the wanderin’ herd, through the dusty haze, there he is. He’s got his two-year-old brown gelding spinning in a tight circle to the right. The colt’s head is pulled to the inside, butt down and tail tucked in. Then the colt’s nose is pulled down against his chest and he’s backin’ up in quick steps. Suddenly the horse and rider burst forward like Custer’s charge and reach a gallop within a few strides! He leans all the way back. The colt’s whole body tips back, head up, front hooves locked straight. The hind legs stiffen and reach plum under the head. He sticks his butt nearly to the ground and skids to a sliding stop.
The cowboy pauses, pats ol’ Brown and gazes off listening to the thunderous applause of the imaginary crowd. “You crazy two legged mare ridin’ maniac! Get those cattle up here!” Every outfit’s got a feller who hired on to cowboy and get another fifty a month to ride a couple of colts. The better they seem to be with horses, the more their attention seems to wander workin’ cattle. They can’t help it. It’s in their blood. They march to a different drummer, those boys. Some of ‘em are so good with horses it’s hard to believe they can’t read each other’s mind. Most of ‘em dream of makin’ a livin’ training horses. The pinnacle of achievement, the World Series, Super Bowl and National Finals of horse training is the Snaffle Bit Futurity held in Reno every September. It’s one of the most beautiful sights you’ll ever set your eyes on. Even the grouchiest, grumblin’ feedlot foreman gets a little twinge to see man and horse perform as one. Ears twitchin’, nostrils flarin’, rommals, bosalls, braided macardies, rawhide, muscles ripplin’, eyes alert, horse hair, silver, mane and tail. If this sounds like a tribute to that strange breed of cowboy who’d feel more at home on the back of a spinnin’, nervous colt than on the dance floor at Schroeder Hall, I guess it is. They say there’s a place for everything. www.baxterblack.com
