LETTER FROM THE EDITOR
elcome back cool nights. I always enjoy the cool evenings this time of year. We’re just getting into sweatshirt weather and the days are shortening up. The kids are back in school and there is some sense of a schedule again. It’s almost fall.
It’s almost time for those leaves to start changing which means trail rides become even more colorful. If you take a trail ride over the next month, snap some pictures and send them into us so we can share the beautiful scenery with our readers. You can email them to us at email@example.com or SHARE them on our FACEBOOK page! Don’t forget: The Fast Horse Resource. We hope you enjoy this month’s issue of The “Fast” Horse Resource. We’ve got some great event coverage and results as well as a few good tear jerkers. I’ll have to admit, the special edition of “Barrel Talk” quickly had me in tears as I was reading it. (But for those of you who know me, you know it doesn’t take much!) Needless to say, I think it will strike a tender spot with most of our readers. Bella has also shared somewhat of a tear jerker this month. Of course she can’t write her column without a little jab at the wiener dogs....and a few laughs, but this month she also includes a little more of a seriousness in her story. Maybe she’s trying to tell us something (she is getting older.) Stallion owners, we’re gearing up for our Annual Stallion calendar, so if you want to have your “Stud” featured in our 2013 calendar, contact us asap. Once we get started, they fill up fast!
And for those who appreciate the “Studs,” you have to be on the mailing list to be sure and get one. We will mail all active subscribers a copy as well as give them away for free (you pay shipping) to anyone who requests one. Until next month.........check out the beauty around you and remember to count your blessings on horseback! God Bless and Ride Safe, Christa Conway
A Little “Barrel Talk” We have included a special edition of Barrel Talk in this issue. Check it out....................... and remember to visit www.barrelhorseworld.com to read more Barrel Talk on-line!

News Seventeenflat.com Innovative Barrel Racer Filled A Need With POP-Up Barrels
From the time I can remember, my dad would dream up innovative, crazy shortcuts in my house for items people use daily. Friends would always say, your dad should patent that...I want one. I always encouraged him to patent one of his ideas but he said that he was happy to just make life easier for his family. I inherited my father’s inventive mind and in 2004 I invented and patented POP-Up Barrels® and began the company called Seventeenflat.com.
Texas, Furrtreeous, Georgia Halo, Gridiron, Hadtobenuts, Hiclass La Jolla, Ivory James, Jumpn Chic, Lead The Field, Moon Shake, Newarco, Oak Tree Special, Papa Larry, Prime Talent, Prime Time Dream, Saint Schackleton, Sixy Royal King, Special Crown Royal, Strong Hope, Sweep The Leg Johnny, TRS Renegade Dash, Zoomin For Bux are eligible for entry. For entry blanks please go to http://www.fqhra.com/documents. php . The next payment is due 9/15/2012 and late entries can be made with only a $100 penalty. The 30 day, $120,000 per day Hialeah meet begins on December 15 and runs through February 17, 2013. Barns open December 1, 2012.
White’s Strategy is to keep it Simple.
By: Tammie Hiatt / www.iprarodeo.com - Photo Credit: Peggy Gander/Guaranteed Cowgirl - Ca-
rie White of Richfield, WI has a refreshing approach to her life and her rodeo career….keep it simple. Carie and husband Wade, an IPRA World Champion Tie-Down Roper, own two horses, her barrel horse and his roping horse. No practice horses, no back-up horses, no string of young horses in the training stages.
They are built to last and have proven to be the gold standard for POP-Up Barrels®. I still get emails from people who have had their barrels for 8 years and say that they are still in great shape. Seventeenflat.com POP-Up Barrels® are red and white. Don’t be confused by other barrels that look somewhat the same. They are exactly the same size as 55 gallon drums used for barrel racing. They are made with stronger wire and thicker fabric with reinforced stitching. Basically, it boils down to the fact that if you didn’t get the barrels from www.seventeenflat.com, you didn’t get authentic Pop-Up Barrels®.
In this day and time of high-tech rodeo, this is a rare thing for two people and two horses to make their presence known in any association, nonetheless in the IPRA. For the last three years Wade, a veteran IFR contender, and Carie have both qualified for the International Finals Rodeo. They both say that traveling together is their favorite part of rodeo.
Seventeenflat.com Pop-Up Barrels® come with a customer satisfaction guarantee. I will go above and beyond for my customers, that’s just the way I am. You can also buy replacement single barrels and bags, and when you call, you will speak directly to me--a real live person and not a call center.
Carie, currently sitting in the number two seat in the IPRA world standings, is no stranger to this scenario. She came into her first IFR in the number two seat and had high hopes of claiming her own gold buckle, but left Oklahoma City very discouraged. “I just couldn’t stop the clock at my first IFR. I was so disappointed,” recalled White. “I can laugh and joke about it now. It’s too bad the IFR isn’t a 3D,” she laughs.
Inventing the Pop-up Barrels has taught me about life, business and people. I am very proud of my Pop-Up Barrels® and the integrity associated with my company. To me, pride equals happiness and that attitude is what drives my business. In a way, I relate it to barrel racing because I’d rather have a good run and come home without a check than win money for a run I wasn’t proud of.
“At my second IFR, I thought maybe it would go better, but it didn’t and last year, I was in the number two seat again and I just expected it to not go well,” Carie explains. “I’m racking my brain this year. I just don’t know what it is, but three years in a row and we can’t stop the clock. It’s just crazy.”
FQHRA Stallion Stakes Futurity Trials Date Set for December 15, 2012 The 350 yard $50,000 added FQHRA Stallion Stakes Futurity trials will be held December 15, 2012 at Hialeah Race Park. It is open to all foals of 2010 who are the progeny of sires whose seasons were sold in the FQHRA Stallion Service Auction for the 2009 breeding season. In 2011 this race was worth over $95,000. All 2 year olds by As Good As Nick Gets, Contend, Cowboys Rodeo, First Down Straw, First Place
The couple has access to a huge run of rodeos in July and August in the Northeast and they take full advantage of the many one-performance fair rodeos. “We have a pretty good stretch of rodeos close to us,” said Carie. “We don’t go a lot in the winter, we really concentrate on the summer rodeos and then work the rest of the year.”
“Kate has been running great this year, she’s really stepped up. She’s always good in the small pens but this year she’s been running good in the bigger pens as well. I can’t complain. She’s been really sound. I have a great vet that knows how to keep her consistent. A couple of years ago she got really sore and fell apart on me. Now he knows what she needs.” Ninnekah Kate is a 13 year-old, 14.3-hand mare that has been partnered with White for the past four years. 5-time IPRA World Champion Barrel Racer Betty Roper of Oktaha, OK raised Kate. “Kate is out of Ninnekah Bugs and Betty’s good mare, Rocks Lotta Bert. Betty started her and took her to the futurities. She’s been running barrels about 9 years now and still loves her job,” said White.
News It’s Official: Stolis Winner Is Retired by Greg Thompson, Stallionesearch.com RUIDOSO, NM—Owner Jerry
Windham has verified Quarter Horse racing’s all-time leading money earner Stolis Winner has entered retirement. “We worked him earlier in the year, and afterwards the decision was made that it was time,” said Windham. “He’ll wind up doing something before too long. He’ll become a pony horse or something productive in the future.”
“I’ve ridden her four years now and we are very comfortable with each other. I know her so well and don’t even have to think about it when we run; it’s just automatic for us. Wade warms her up for me at the rodeos and tunes on her if she needs it and I just get on and run her. I am not a trainer and don’t claim to be, that is definitely not my specialty,” she states. “We’d like to have a colt out of her and I told Wade that he’d have to train me a baby just like her.” “I really don’t have a clue as far as a strategy for the IFR this year,” said Carie. “We were just talking about this the other day. The ideal situation would be to be number one in the standings with a big enough lead no one could catch you, but that’s not the case so I guess we will just have to see what happens. It seems like if you are chasing it too hard, it just seems to fall apart. It’s fun the way we do it, no real expectations, just go and see what happens.” “I thought about getting something else to ride at the finals but I think that would just be too stressful for me, I don’t think I would feel comfortable on another horse. I’ve always laid Kate off in the winter, but this year I think I am going to keep running her and see if that helps at the IFR. I may try to come to Oklahoma City to the BFA World Championship in December so I can run her in the same arena and see how she does.” Wade and Carie not only enjoy traveling together, they also work together in their own web-based business, Safari Girl Designs. Their website features their own designs on tack, dog collars, belts and shoes. If you wonder about the connection between the business name and the rodeo couple, it may be, in part, because of their two traveling companions, Genesis and Lil Wayne, the White’s two pet monkeys. “They go everywhere with us,” said Carie. “Genesis is 12 years old, he has diabetes and has to have insulin twice a day. He weighs about 22 lbs. and has a life expectancy of around 30 years. The smaller one, Lil Wayne, weighs 12 lbs. and is 4 years old and can live to be 45. They travel with us; they have crates in the living quarters of our horse trailer. The little one can escape from his crate and let the bigger one out, we’ve come home to find our house redecorated more than once,” she laughs. “The bigger one is food focused and the little one likes electronics and likes to take the keys off the computer keyboard. It’s always exciting.”

The six-year-old gelding retires with the all-time earnings mark of $2,235,161 from twenty-nine career starts. His thirteen career victories are highlighted by the win in the 2008 edition of G1 All American Futurity. He was also victorious in the G1 Rainbow Futurity, G1 Heritage Place Futurity, and the G1 Texas Classic Derby. He was named the 2008 AQHA Racing World Champion, Champion 2-Year-Old and Champion 2-Year-Old Gelding. Windham bred the son of champion Stoli in Texas from the Runaway Winner mare Veva Jean. M. Heath Taylor trained Stolis Winner for the majority of his career start, and late into his five-year-old campaign before being shipped to trainer Juan Aleman in California to compete in the 2011 Bank of America Challenge Championship, were he finished a troubled 11th place.

The rules, announced a year ago by The Jockey Club and updated recently, address the issue of permitted race-day medications, illegal doping of horses, uniform rules and penalties for those who violate rules or attempt to harm horses and their riders. “It is critical for us to keep racing clean for the horses; the owners, breeders and trainers; and the betting public,” said Don Treadway Jr., AQHA Executive Vice President. “AQHA has been a leader at addressing this topic and by teaming with our Thoroughbred – and other breed – counterparts, we are forming a united front to address this very serious issue.” Over the last year, horse racing has been under the microscope. Efforts have been initiated in Washington, D.C., to regulate the industry. In fact, AQHA Director and Racing Council Chairman Matt Witman testified before a Senate hearing in July regarding medication and performance-enhancing drugs in horse racing. AQHA’s endorsement included one qualification, with AQHA not calling for the withdrawal of the use of furosemide on race day. The Jockey Club has long advocated the removal of this medication from competition.
to those who chose to breed their mares to “Six” in 2012!

News “AQHA and The Jockey Club have had productive meetings to address topics within the proposal in order to gain widespread industry endorsement and broader support. Both AQHA and The Jockey Club agree that working jointly to promote the Reformed Racing Medication Rules and addressing this most important issue in a united fashion will move the industry to where it needs to be to address race-day medications, uniform rules, and illicit and illegal drugs, and punish those who use them in swifter fashion and with harsher penalties,” Treadway said. At The Jockey Club’s Round Table Conference in Saratoga Springs, New York, it was also announced today that the Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders Association has endorsed the Reformed Racing Medication Rules. “We have to agree on a goal of not only ensuring that our sport is as safe as possible and that our athletes are properly cared for, but also reassure public observers and our fans that we compare favorably to other sports and the international racing community when it comes to the use of drugs,” said Stuart S. Janney III, vice chairman of The Jockey Club and chairman of the Thoroughbred Safety Committee. “We are immensely pleased to have the American Quarter Horse Association and the Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders Association joining this critical initiative.” The AQHA Racing Council will meet later this month and among its topics will be the Reformed Racing Medication Rules proposal and other avenues the Association will pursue to protect horses from those who seek to do them harm. AQHA and TJC will be reaching out to other groups to coordinate an industry-wide meeting on the Reformed Racing Medication Rules proposal. A copy of the August 12, 2012, version of the Reformed Racing Medication Rules can be found at www.aqha.com.

QHRAI September Newsletter I love the fall in Indiana. September got here much faster than I had imaged though, which means we are down to 8 weeks of the Indiana Quarter Horse Race Season. How did that happen so quickly? We have seen a lot of really great quality stake races, new track records and overall great racing opportunities. Some of us have gone through a couple of draws, still waiting our turn to get in, but overall we are getting (most of) our horses run!! We have some exciting times coming up this month at Hoosier Park. Bring your horses and run, or leave your horses at home and come enjoy the fun and excitement!! Either way, you are guaranteed to see the “Fastest Horses on the Track”. The $100,000 added Gordon Mobley Futurity Finals is September 15th. This will be the best group of Indiana sired 2 year olds around. Be there to see them run for the money. The Hoosier Park Classic Trials are September 28th and the Sterlie Bertram trials are September 29th. That will be a weekend of class trials. The finals for those two races are on QUARTER HORSE DAY, OCTOBER 13th, along with the trials for the Governors Stake and the Miss Roxie Little. You won’t want to miss QUARTER HORSE DAY, OCTOBER 13th. We are planning a full day of fun, food and fast horses. After the races, QHRAI is hosting a horsemen’s dinner. It will start around 7:00 to give the Mike Kase and his staff a chance to set up for our party. We are also going to be auctioneering the infamous “STICK HORSES” that night, and the best of the best stick horses and riders will be running for the money on October 27th. Be thinking about which rider you will be naming on your horse!! This is a good money maker for QHRAI to donate to our horsemen in need. Last year we were able to send the proceeds to Richie Gilliard.
Jon McGuire Ron Haynes
September 1st of each year is the due date for the QHRAI Application to be submitted to the Indiana Horse Racing Commission. This application is reviewed by all of the Commissioners and in October we will be asked to have the Application presentation in front of the Commission. Based on the information provided to the Commission at the Hearing, they make a decision on whether or not the QHRAI will be the sole representative for the Quarter Horse Racing Industry in Indiana, and awarded the money that is designated in statute (that means the purse money that we run for each year). THIS IS A BIG DEAL for the QHRAI. Like the All State Insurance Commercials say, “You are in good hands” and should know that QHRAI is represented at the highest level, both professionally and from the horsemen’s perspective. If you pass Tom Mosley in the barn at the track or see him standing out by the rail in the morning during training, let him know you appreciate all the hard work he puts into creating the application. He does a balancing act this time of year getting the application created and keeping his barn at the track going. And, if you see Marg Thompson on race night, be sure to thank her for her diligent work on the gaming revenue accounts that are meticulously kept!! There are going to be two horsemen’s meeting s at Hoosier Park in the Top of The Park Room on September 19th and 20th. These are the meetings we hold every year to get input from our horsemen so we can plan for next year’s racing season. These meetings are for Owners and Trainers on the 19th and Breeders and Sire Owners on the 20th. We will start each meeting at 5:00 and we will break for dinner around 6:30. We will be talking to you about these meetings at the races!! Please RSVP to me so I know how many will be attending. Call me at 317-509-6372. Hold the date: January 5th, 2013. That is when the Stallion Service Auction and Annual Membership Meeting will be held. We will be at the same place as last year at the Crowne Plaza Hotel,
www.QHRAI.net Page 16
QHRAI News Airport. More information will be coming and we will be starting the stallion procurement process soon!! This is your opportunity to be a part of the signature race program in Indiana. And I heard there may be some really great changes next year. August was a sad month for the Quarter Horse Racing Family. There are a lot of things in life that we might hear and not like. We don’t like it when our horses don’t run well. We don’t always like going to the barn to clean stalls. It hurts when we lose a friend that moves away, or we are sad when a son or daughter or relative moves away to experience a new part of their life. You want to be happy for them, but you still hurt inside because you will miss them. It’s hard to see someone be sick. It’s harder to know someone you care about is sick and they won’t be around in this life very long. The news about Fran Thompson went straight to my heart and I struggle how to deal with it. Fran was diagnosed with cancer last year and was treated. She was in remission this year when she arrived to Indiana Downs to open up Fran’s Tack Shop. She always has a smile on her face assuring everyone she feels great. She is the model person that anyone would want to consider their friend, and Fran has many friends. Fran went to the doctor last week and found out that her cancer is back. She will be flown home to Florida where she will be with her Florida family and medical support team there. Please say a special prayer for Fran. She has been a big part of our Quarter Horse Racing Family in Indiana and I know we have been a big part of her family. I know she is hoping that we all keep our heads up and is wishing us luck racing!! Let’s make her proud!!

Justifying Keeping The Old Horses Around truck (secretly I think he misses this part of the horses it may be 27 years since he has woke up and had to go catch escapees but he is GAME!) We get down to Moms and sure enough she is out with the neighbors young horses who are none to welcoming. Looks like a mountain lion tried to grab her at the neck as she has a cat sized bite at the poll and down her neck. Which would explain why she would run thru the fence for the first time in 30 years. Shes got a few cuts to her chest and front legs from the fence nothing as bad as it could be, a few kick and bite marks from the neighbors horses but God love her she just comes running up drops her head in the halter and we head for the gate shes practically dragging me to get there. Dads staring to lose his enthusiasim now but he’s not cussing to loud and hes digging back up the memories of when I was a kid and we had to always go get my Pony and goat out of the neighbors yard! jetgetset Posted 2012-08-29 11:22 PM I am a Freak Posts: 2965 Location: Nowhere Special I’m not near the bleeding heart I use to be when it comes to the horses and sometimes we all need that gentle reminder of why we do the things we do, even when they make no sense and cost us money we will never recoupe so I thought I would post this for all of you. With feed on the rise and hay worth a small fortune I thought some of you may like this. My Mom bought this mare for me when I was 8 and she was 4. I turned 34 last week and she is 30. I have owned her 26 years! She retired from the arena at age 11 due to soundness issues and has pretty much been a pasture pet ever since. I can not tell you the last time a person was on this old mares back but it has to to be atleast 15 years if not nearing TWO DECADES since she has had a leg swung over her. She is a permenat resident at my Moms who pampers her, She is old, sway backed, but just had her teeth done, gets wormed, vaccinated, feet trimmed, blanketed in the winter, and fed better then any horse on the place. I have struggled with keeping her going when I sell or give away horses that are “useful” but just couldn’t ever make that call. Not to mention my Mom would never permit it anyway. She still sees her as the beautiful young mare she was and the little kid I was the day we brought her home. Says she walks down memory lane everytime she feeds her so good enough. At 6 Am on my birthday I wake to a knock on my bedroom door.. UGH it’s my Dad who is here visiting says my Mom is on the phone and my mare is out (just what I wanted to do at 6Am on my birthday) Jump out of bed in my pj’s and slippers Dads already dressed and heading for the
Now we are a hike from the house and she is in a FLAT HURRY to get home the old mare still has some spunk when she wants to.. Im in my slippers and there is no way I am going to walk the gravel rode that far so I tell my Dad to give me a leg up something else he hasn’t done in probably 3 decades and the last time was probably on this very same horse. About mid way up I get to thinking.. Nobody has been on this horse in nearly 20 YEARS, I’m bareback with a halter and leadrope.. She was attacked by a cat in the night, ran thru the fence and has been fighting off about 10 head of young horses in the dark for who knows how long.. This could be a VERY BAD IDEA!! I can just see me getting dumped by my 30 year old horse in my PJ’s on my birthday in the middle of the driveway and it wouldn’t be anyones fault by my own!! LOL Never the less I was committed at that point and even though she is sway backed now and we are both so much older the moment my butt hit her back it was like regressing back 20+ years. Remembering all the things she won me, all the miles we rode, she still rides the same as she did 30 years ago and she never missed a beat.Sitting on her you don’t see her sway back or her dished eyes all you see is the same thing you saw so many years ago the view between two beautiful black ears ontop of a whole head full of sense and trust. You still feel the same powerful horse underneath you and she still travels the sameway she always has. . So while I was hotter then heck and cussing that mare left and right when I first woke up, getting to ride her again for probably the very last time. On very beautiful morning on my Birthday was just the ride down memory lane I needed to know why it is we keep these old guys around no matter the cost.. continued.....
NeNe That is the sweetest thing I have read in a long time. God bless the sweet girl.
have a grand ol’ mare in my pasture - she’s 30 now and has been my friend and partner for 28 years.
nance Awwww. That made me cry. I have an old one too.
peaceandsmiles Location: Oklahoma Amazing! This is just beautiful! I have one of those in my pasture who is one of the greatest horses I have ever owned. I think I will go out and spend the whole day with her tomorrow. And make sure she knows how much I love her.
Southtxponygirl Location: Seguin Texas That was just beautiful the way you put it, give that mare a hug or 2 for me , reading this has brought back the good old days for me too. Thank you so much for sharing this with us And love the pictures sbarmfarm Location: Holdenville, OK Thank you for sharing a special story! I too have one of those in my pasture ! Luv my Super Soldier aka red.. Southtxponygirl You need to write this out and keep it, and frame that top picture and put your letter that you just wrote and put it in the frame with the picture. That was really touching for me to read whiplashranch Location: Okemah, OK That’s the second time tonight a thread has made me cry! But these are good tears, thank you for sharing! SaraJean Location: ND I loved reading this. Those good old horses truly are worth everything we have to put into them..........I’ve got one to, he’s retired to light riding now days but every time I need a smile I jump on him & go for a walk. They’re priceless! Runzbarrel Location: Somewhere in Mommyland Yes exactly this! What a great story that brought tears to my eyes. We too have an old one (27yo) that is priceless when it comes to the kids being able to do anything with him. ghost rider Location: Landlocked in AR Thank you for sharing!! I too
Vegas_Gurl* This is the sweetest darn thing I have ever read! Thank you for sharing... I definitely have tears goin on... What a sweet, amazing girl. calawso Location: Missouri Thank you for sharing your story!! Beautiful!! I agree with the comment that you should print the pictures and story and frame it :) canrunnr Location: USA Beautifully written! I have a 38 year old who I’ve only had a couple years. When I let a kid ride her,.her eyes brighten up and all of a sudden she doesn’t look 38 anymore, more like 15. She was a former halter champion and you can see the pride when she has 4-6 year old on her back. And she is one of the spunkiest mares I have. She runs behind the golf cart at feeding time. God bless the old ones. HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Sounds like your day started off with blessings already! turnandburnon3 Location: Cloud 9 Agreed!! Very touching story, thanks for sharing. wildride Location: Mississippi Great story - I teared up too! Glad you got pictures of the event! galla I opened this thread thinking it was going to be one that was going to be negative towards the oldies. What a breath of fresh
air! Thank you for sharing. I have many over 20, most of those are 25+ and threads like this make my day. I love the old ones and have had many. Great story.. Evittranch Location: Iowa Great ending to a great story! Sucha_Mama Location: Where The Sun Is Shining! Wonderful story!! I have an old mare myself! I needed to read this. Thank you! sorrel horse ranch Location: Under the stary skies of Texas This is probably the best thread I have read on BHW. And the pictures are awesome. As some have said. Don’t miss the opportunity to copy your post and pictures and save them somewhere special. This really made me cry. Bibliafarm Location: FLORIDA..and aint leaving. wow I to got teary eyed... you are so right .. this is why we do what We need to do for our elders.. their Body maybe not able to handle it but their heart wants to.. thank you for sharing. Dr. J Location: Always on call..... Agreed with everyone - great post and I love that your dad took some pictures. You’ll have those to cherish forever. Way to brighten my morning, thank you for sharing. I really loved the part about how it feels exactly the same to be back on her. I don’t ride my oldie very often, but once and a while I love to hop and walk around the pasture - it is like a flashback in time and he does feel just the same...like coming home. rhondafri Location: Bandera, Texas I am crying reading this post also.....I have two old guys.... one is 31 and I raised him from a baby......and the other is 30, I traded the mother to the 31 yr old for the 30 yr old sight unseen, when she was 5 and he was just a yearling, and my sister has him right now, but I am going to bring him here to be with his buddy that
he grew up with, they have never been apart except these 3 yrs the one has been at my sister’s. Time for them to spend their last days together and I will give up MY comforts to make them comfortable and happy to the end! Could never think of giving them away or selling after hearing the horror stories of people leasing or donating only to find out they were sold to slaughter.....and they will never make THAT trip! I will have them put down first! Murphy Location: My old Kentucky home Great post! I love the oldies, they are my favorite. star1218 That was just beautiful. Thank you. teehaha Location: Carpenter, WY Wonderful story Thanks for sharing I’ve always had a soft spot for my oldies. They’ve given me 110% when I asked for it and they can count on me doing the same for them in their golden years. Tennbarrelracer Location: working or sleeping :( that is just AWESOME. thank you for sharing and I hope you had a really Happy Birthday RunningOnPaints Location: Mansfield, Tx Beautiful story... brought tears to my eyes.... sometimes it’s the little things that remind us of the great memories and good times... Give your your girl a hug for me.. Ladybrlracer Location: South East Georgia... Land of the idiots.... I have my old girl and she is 24 this year and will be with me until the day she is gone... she was my first barrel horse and taught me a lot. I haven’t ridden her in years but it sure makes me want to go out and jump on her.. I really love this story and yep made me cry at work too... King&I Location: Sapulpa, OK Awesome story!!!
Dudette Location: Texas There are some people in this world that “just don’t get it”. Our animals give us so much, unconditionally. When we put our children on the backs of these gracious animals, we are trusting them with our children’s lives. Horses like that are born, not made. They are given to special people, and some search a lifetime to find one like that. I have been lucky in life to have been blessed with several. You got the best Birthday gift anyone could ask for. Scout1320 Location: Near San Antonio, TX That story was so heartwarming. Thank you for sharing it. The pics were great! She sure looks like a fantastic old mare, and those kind are worth their weight in GOLD! RidenFly That was amazing to read. You should consider submitting the story and the pics to a magazine. So heartwarming. Thanks for sharing it. speedjunkie Location: Great NW What a Wonderful Birthday Gift! sometimes we need a wake up call to realize what we have. HezaMemory Location: Iowa What a great story. Thanks so much for sharing. Most of my herd are seniors now and I keep asking myself why I insist on keeping them now that feed prices have gone crazy. I have so many great memories with each one from the view of looking between their ears. Makes me want to go home and take a picture from each ones back while facing a pretty sunset or inviting trail just to keep for a memento for when they are gone. I hope you do find a magazine to publish your story. I know it would really touch a lot of hearts out there, just like it did all of us. rodeoveteran I too, thought it was going to be a post more geared towards “why bother” with them. Thank you for
a beautiful story instead! I have some friends who sell before their horses get too old. They don’t want to mess with the oldies and don’t want to go through the pain and expense of watching them age. But we currently have 2 here that are lifers. They have both given us the all and their very best. How can we not do the same for them? We have 6 or seven lifers buried here, two of them were my first pony and my first horse. It rips my heart out to lose them, but it would be so much WORSE if I found out they had been neglected or mistreated after I sold them. So the good ones stay here until...... so I can taake care of them and try to give back a fraction of what they have given us. Happy birthday and you don’t look a day over 14 in your PJs!!!! rodeopitmom Location: NE OKLAHOMA Wonderful story! Thanks for sharing and Happy Birthday! GOIN’ FAST Location: Alberta What an amazing story. Thank you for sharing. rostymom Location: OKLAHOMA How awesome. I have had the pleasure of having a few of these in my life. Being raised in the trading world I never learned how to let one go. LOL So I just keep them. I have also been able to take on a few old ponies that have served a wonderful purpose for others that would not or could not keep them. They were all wonderful horses in there day and I do all I can to feed them and keep them healthy until they pass or I think it is time. Of course my non horse husband wonders about me sometimes. She looked great for her age and I can only imagine the pleasure you had just riding her home. Iwish Location: the high desert what a wonderful story. Makes me miss my old gelding macho.
dakota88 Location: Somewhere else This brought tears to my eyes cause I still my very first horse. He is in his early 40’s. I’ve always said he is my first child, then my son is my second...only true horse people understand this. He has been with me thru everything....the breakups of relationships, the birth of my son, the ending of the relationship with his father, etc. We’ve traveled so many miles up and down the rodeo road. He taught me so much. I got him from a horse trader that was fixin to send him to the killers cause you couldn’t ever catch him. He was skin & bones when I paid $300 for him. I was offered alot of money for him when we was rodeo’ing & going everywhere. You could point him anywhere & he would go. I can’t think of the miles I’ve trail rode him, even used him at a haunted trail ride one year...masked bandits coming out of the woods, shooting & then bailing off onto the side of the trailers. He never ran off, just went back to the same spot & stood. He is the best horse I’ve ever had. The love of my life where horses are concerned. I now have 3 more besides him that will never leave my place. They all hold such a special place in my heart. I had bought my son a pony that I had found for a handicapped boy several yrs before i had my son. This little pony did such wonders for that boy, he could finally stand up straight & before long he could even run....When I found out I was having a son, I went to the owners & asked if they ever wanted to sell her that I wanted her. I got her for my son’s 2nd birthday. She passed at the age of 45. My son & me was with her when we had to put her down. 1 week later we lost my mom. This little pony will always have such a special place for me & my son. No way would I ever consider getting rid of them for any reason. You got to keep the good ones. They mean so much. They are as much of my family as my human family is...... bless the people who understand this and hang on to them.... I always think that one day I will get to see them all again. run n rate Location: 31 lengths farms Dakota what the heck do you feed him???
Cuz I have 2 or 3 that I’d love to have well into thier 40’S!!!!! I have had one mare that made it to 33 and my bay mare was 27 when she coliced due to complications with a tumor. Prndi Great story thank you for telling it! brlraceaddict OH MY GOODNESS. I have not opened this thread for three days for fear of it being negative and wow, what a great story. Thank you for sharing. Made me tearyeyed. My retired girl is not old by any means (19) and she has her good days and bad and I haven’t ridden her in over a year now. Makes me want to go throw a saddle on her and take her for a spin just to make her happy. Knowing it would be painful keeps me from doing it but I have no doubt that I could. You made me smile and realize I will keep her till she tells me it’s time. Thank you. Now, where is my Kleenex? turnnburn217 Wow! Fantastic Story! My gelding is 27 and he is a lifer. Publish the story! ALS1104 Location: Panama City, FL that just made me tear up! shes still a beautiful girl! i guess this is why i cant part with my boy- ive had him since he was a weanling. i still see that little fuzzy baby he was when i got him! SmokinGirlie Location: Where the long tails flow, ND How awesome! rodeorun68 Location: My Own Little World OK. I don’t cry over anything but you just made the tears flow. I too have my 34 year old girl out in the pen and she is just as you described. Thank you for the story & yes, you need to save it :) SwishMiss Location: San Antonio Texas great story thanks for sharing!

Pole Bending Association Championships
The Central Kentucky Ag & Expo welcomed the 2012 National Pole Bending Championship Show to Liberty, Kentucky, June 29,30-July 1, 2012. This was NPBA’s most lucrative show ever, offering over $50,000 in cash and prizes to pole bending horses from around the United States, Canada and Italy. Thanks to Limestone John Deere Tractors and Reveal 4N1 equipment the arena footing proved to be blistering fast as the pole bending horses turned over nineteen second runs the entire weekend. 2010 NPBA 1D Champion, Chuck Givens quoted, “The footing was perfect and the fast times reflected that. When you have great ground, you have a great show! By far the best Championship Pole Bending we’ve ever put on.”
Many familiar faces came back to defend their titles including Troy Priddy and his mare, BW Tiny Jet, The pair did just that in the NPBA Open 3D Pole Bending Championship sponsored by Len Brown’s “The Corrector” Pad, Ross Carnahan, Jerry Barrett, Lucky D Farms and Josh Morton. Troy has been very successful in his ongoing career. He is an AQHA World Champion with multiple top tens at AQHA World Shows and an All American Quarter Horse Congress Champion. He continued
his winning ways by making it look easy posting a 19.973 in the first go, a 19.503 in the second go and winning the average with a 39.476 narrowly skimming by Janis Wagner and Reneoni who finished second in the 1D average with a 39.481. The NPBA Open 2-D was won by Congress winner, Suanne Fields and her horse, Sugar Star Gazer. This team was steady and ready to win all week-end. NPBA Open 3-D was won by Sarah Fackler and Lightining N Diamonds.
Stephanie Marcum Amateur Champions
Dirk Carnahan and Flaming Boogie Bug defended their title in the NPBA “Stephanie Marcum” Amateur Pole Bending for the second time. Dirk posted a 19.849 on Saturday and a 19.671 on Sunday to take the average with a 39.520.
Amateur 3D Amateur 2D
We asked Dirk what he thought about repeating this victory? He said, “Stephanie was a great friend and wonderful example of class and dignity. Now that Payton is riding Moon Struck Sue our family has grown even closer with Stephanie’s husband, Barry. Seeing this trophy back on the shelf in our house means so much to me.” Reserve 1-D Campion was Lonnie Willen and Judy’s At The Spa, 2011 AQHA World Champion in Jr Pole Bending. They posted an average of 39.842. Suzanne Fields and Sugar Star Gazer won yet another buckle and collected check in the “Stephanie Marcum” Amateur Pole Bending 2-D. Chuck Givens nailed down the 3-D of the Amateur Pole Bending on his home-bred, The Talkins Over. This class was sponsored by Barry Marcum, Johnne Dodds Insurance, and Len Brown “The CORRECTOR” Pad. Handmade pole bender trophy was donated by the Kendrick Family and awarded to the division winners. The NPBA Fururity was no exception. Sponsored by Park Equine Hospital and Len Brown, The CORRECTOR” Pad. The young horses ran solid and steady throughout the weekend. Only fractions separated out top two young horses in the 1-D. In 2011 Trent Tobin won the Futurity on a home-bred by his stallion, Redneck Jet. Once again Trent brought another talented home-bred, TT Redneck Nitro average of 40.534. World Champion Charlie Peoples and Lightnings Little Lad were Reserve Champions in the 1-D only a blink with a average of 40.582. Janis Wagner and How About a Redneck owned by Sarah Fackler won the 2-D average of the NPBA Futurity.

All division winners won a NPBA designed trophy halter from JB Horse Expressions and Mart Pak gift cards.

Spectators filled the arena to eyewitness the best pole bending horses in the country run for big dollars. With champions riders like Jerry Barrett, Janis Wagner, Charlie People and Dirk Carnahan all trying to claim the title of “WORLDS FASTEST POLE BENDING HORSE.” Brian Foushee and classy Little Dan were second to run over the ground posting a 19.690 to hold off all other contenders. Charlie People was the 2-D winner abourd Lightning Starsnbars who was the 2011 NPBA slot race winner. Charlie People quoted, “It was the best pole bening you could watch anywhere. I think it was the best show we’ve ever had…the times were great.” Adding to the excitement was the webcast on the entire NPBA show on Visworks.
NPBA Pee Wee Class
Canadian Pole Benders
NPBA welcomed our Canadian NPBA members Joanne Fisher, Leslie Richards and James Wilson. They all made the long trip to Kentucky to be a part of our Championship and had amazing weekend. The trio posted some of their best pole bending times at this show and collected a few checks. Representing Italy was Elisa Maspero and her horse He B Flyin. Elisa was overjoyed to win the 2-D reserve championship in the NPBA Futurity.

Barks N Bits w/ Bella
Barks N Bits with our favorite Jack Russel Terrier...
The New - “Old Teddy” I’ve got a really neat story for you this month. I know I’m always talking about life here at the ranch, but this month I have a story to tell you about a new member to the family. My people have family members that aren’t so much “horse people” and don’t hang out down at the barn....but they are still what I would consider “dog people.” One of the family members in particular has a tender heart when it comes to my fellow four legged canines. The latest member of the family has found his way into the tender hearted family member’s home and this is where my story begins. You see, Teddy (who is by no means a youngster), had lived out his thirteen years with a couple who loved him dearly. I’m sure he spent many nights cuddled up on one of their laps while they enjoyed each others and his company. He is a lapdog size ball of fur...I think they referred to him as a Pomeranian. (I had to use spell check on that one!)
Photos by: Still Memories by Anna and Christa Conway to open her home to Teddy and promised the couple that he would have a “forever” home” with her. The elderly couple was so thankful and teared up at the thought of saying goodbye to Teddy, but were so relieved that is was not goodbye forever - you see, he can still visit when he wants.
The sad part of the story is that the couple he spent most of his life with became incapable of taking care of themselves and were advised that they would have to enter a nursing home together. On a good note, part of this decision was that they were to enter their nursing home together, the flip side of this is that with them both entering a nursing home and with no one to take care of Teddy - they were advised that they should put him to sleep. Well, the tender hearted lady (my people’s family) happened to come onto the scene and began working with the couple as they were preparing to make the move. They shared their dilemma with her as they struggled with the decision at hand. Of course after hearing what was suggested, she absolutely would not hear of it. She offered
Meanwhile, New/Old Teddy has made himself at home with the other geriatric members at his new home. He’s fitting right in with the dachshund (I know - another wiener dog in the family....) named Otis and the big rescue dog that looks like he’s part Chow Chow (except in the summer when they shave him and he looks like some form of a lion/dog) named Dillon. The youngster of the bunch at Teddy’s new home thinks she is old because of the company she keeps....her name is Maddie - and she is....you guessed it, another wiener dog. Here’s the kicker.....Maddie is “Princess Annabelle’s” sister. Small world, huh? I think from now on I’ll call her “Princess Madeline.” Until next month, Take care of the “Old Folks” in your life... critters included...

One Special Horse
ecently, I had the opportunity to attend a Gran Prix Jumping show. I was entranced by the incredible athleticism, grace and strength of these magnificent horses. The combination of equine and human partners was breathtakingly beautiful. In my time at the event, I had the opportunity to talk to a number of the riders. One thing was evident, just like people who ride and own contesting horses, these people truly love their horses. In our conversations, several of them talked about “one special horse” in their life. It was either a horse they had ridden, owned, or had watched being ridden. Something about the experience had been permanently recorded in their memory. As I drove away from the event, it hit me that every horse-person I know has that “one special horse “in their life. Oh, there might be more than one memorable horse in our past; but one usually stands heads and shoulders above all the rest. I’m privileged to currently own my oncein-a-lifetime horse, Ace. Ace isn’t the fastest barrel horse in the world; and I’m sure he’d be faster without me. But I’ve roped calves; cut cattle from the herd; chased cattle up and down a mountainside; and just sat
and watched many sunsets all while in the saddle on him. Without any questions, each of those moments was more special because Ace was there to share it with me. I’ve set around arenas all over Indiana with some of the veterans of barrel racing. I still haven’t met one who couldn’t describe in great detail that ”one special horse.” They remember the smallest traits and mannerisms. They verbally replay a great run or a horrible injury, as though it happened yesterday. The Creator of these magnificent beings - called horses - shows us an extra dose of love in allowing us to own that “one special horse.” And, we should never forget to thank Him for it! And just as we should never forget to thank Him for these irreplaceable gifts he has given us, I think it is best for all generations to come that we never stop telling stories about that “special one” we’ve owned or ridden. We can all pray that someday they’ll have that “special horse”, too. And when I’m old, I hope it’s me still telling stories about this ride or that ride that I was privileged to share with my “one special horse.”

Getting Your Horse Ready To Show and Maintaining That “Winning Edge”
Photo by Puhl’s Photography
Article By Dr. Steve Fisch, DVM
Winning requires a lot of things to go right. Losing requires only one thing to go wrong. As the level of competition rises, more and more things have to go right. The time to start getting your horse ready to show actually starts back in the breeding shed as you choose your genetics. Whether you bred or bought your horse, we will assume that you have done your homework in the genetics and nutrition department and you have a horse that has good conformation and is sound at this point. If you have a younger or older horse, the first thing to concentrate on besides the actual training aspect is to make sure your horse is in good enough shape to do what you are asking of him. You must remember that a horse less than 24 to 26 months still does not have some of its growth plates closed yet. These young horses take a very minimum of ninety days to get their muscles, joints, ligaments and tendons strong enough to take the wear and tear of training. Just as any athlete they need a strong base level of fitness before you ask them to go to a higher level of training. Repetitive movements such as going round and round in a training pen at the same speed and gait for long periods of time is very strenuous on young joints and ligaments. Muscles of horses in training are no different than people who are training. The muscles take strain to make them stronger but they also need rest so they can repair themselves as they prepare for more strain and more strength. If the muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints do not get some down time for repair, you will end up with a sore horse or a horse that breaks down before he makes it to the show pen. You will never see a winning professional human athlete in a training program that causes him to use the same body parts and motions day after day without at least 48 hours of down time for that body part or motion. The training causes breakdown of the muscles, etc and the down time allows them to repair and come back 48 hours later even stronger. You can take your horse on a trail ride and still get some training in. Your horse’s mind will get a rest from the training pen and his joints will get a break from the repetitive motions from the training pen. You will end up with a sounder and happier horse in the long run. A horse that is not sour from endless hours in the training pen is more apt to learn quickly when he is in the training pen.
Another important aspect of having and keeping that winning edge is to make sure your horse’s feet are balanced with the proper break over point and a non broken pastern hook axis .Long toes and under run heels are common but they are a deterrent to optimum performance. The feet should also be balanced in the medial to lateral (side to side) aspect also. A well balanced foot is just like a well balanced tire. An unbalanced foot will cause more wear on one side of the coffin joint than the other. A well balanced foot will also cause your horse to travel smoother and more like an athlete. You can check your horse’s foot balance with two x-rays of each foot. Another area that needs to be in balance but is often overlooked is the mouth. The teeth need to be floated and the mouth balanced at least every year. Horses less than five years old lose and add from 40 to 44 teeth between their yearling and five year old year. The losing and gaining of these can cause a severe imbalance of even a young horse’s mouth. The imbalance can cause pain in the temporomandibular joint. This TMJ pain can cause your horse to be irritable and to resist training. A properly floated and balanced mouth with the wolf teeth pulled can go a long way towards having a horse with the winning edge. There are many “equine dentists” out there. Make sure you use someone who is licensed and trained in the science of equine dentistry. The best dentistry tools are pneumatic floats. They have the power to do a perfect job but they do not create heat in the mouth and they do not hurt soft tissue. You can turn a pneumatic float on full force and put it in your hand and you will not hurt your hand but it will float teeth perfectly. Horses that are under stress from showing and training may benefit from Ulcergard by Merial as a preventative for stomach ulcers or Gastrogard as a treatment for ulcers. Stomach ulcers are a major cause of poor performance, poor eaters, grumpy horses and generally poor doers. Do not use an imitation, they do not work. Good quality hay and feed from a reputable feed company is also very important. Feeding a couple of flakes of good quality alfalfa or peanut hay per day can actually decrease the incidence of stomach ulcers. A good nutrition program is based around the forage in the diet and not around the grain. An excellent supplement to feed show horses, broodmares, stallions and weanlings and yearlings is Platinum Performance. This supplement adds the extra vitamins, minerals, omega 3 fatty acids and a multitude of other nutrients that help give peak performance.
The last topic for maintaining your show horse is soundness. If he is already sound, as he should be, then there are a few things you can do besides the information in the paragraphs above to keep him that way. Adequan injections are an excellent preventative for sore joints. I would advise supplementing any needed joint injections with weekly to monthly intramuscular injections of Adequan during any heavy showing or training period. Intramuscular injections of Adequan help replace some needed substances in an inflamed joint and they can prolong the time between joint injections. When you have your horse’s joints injected, make sure you have them injected with the highest quality and highest molecular weight hyaluronate and if you use steroid, always use a steroid that is “chondroprotective” such as triamcimilone.
These preceding paragraphs really barely touch on all the things it takes to keep that “winning edge” but hopefully they will give you a lot of food for thought. Good luck at all your shows and races in 2012!

I love the feathered boots from Lane Boot Company in cream. Here is another look with a fur vest, turquoise jewelry, Old Gringo boots & an awesome backpack.

Part 2: Team Indiana at the Jr. High Division National Finals
Welcome back for Part II of Team Indiana at the Jr. High National Finals. As we said last month, Team Indiana hit the road in June and safely arrived in Gallup, NM before the start of the Cinch Jr. High Division National Finals. All nineteen members had worked hard and put in many hours in the practice pen hoping to make their mark in Gallup. The week turned out to be full of tough competition, lots of excitement, great sportsmanship, new experiences, and many memories. Team Indiana watched as one of their own was elected to the position of Jr. High Division National Secretary, three made it back to the short go, and one member brought back a National Championship in the Chute Dogging. Again this month, Team Indiana will share their experiences and give us more of a look into the trip they will never forget.
Michael Shreeve Salamonia, IN. I competed in Boys Breakaway Roping, Chute Dogging, Team Roping, Light Rifle Shooting (ended up 11th in the nation), and Bull Riding. My favorite part about New Mexico was seeing all my old friends and making new friends. Other favorites were hiking up to church rock for the 3rd time, the trade show, and the dummy ropings. Lastly, the rodeo is always fun. When you are running through the gate in the big arena, backing your horse in the box, getting in the chute with your steer, looking up at all the people watching you, or my favorite, getting on the back of the bull - New Mexico is just the most amazing feeling in rodeo!!
Jacob Rorig Brownstown, IN Making it to the finals was such a great experience. I had some ups and downs, but it all worked out great. I was just happy that I caught

in my breakaway. I had lots of fun at the volleyball tournament and the tug of war. I think the thing that was the best was spending a lot of time with my friends and meeting new ones. It was a wonderful experience being there.
Abbi White Wilkinson, IN Ahhh…. Gallup, my first time there and it was a wonderful experience…..not only for me but our entire Indiana Team. The rodeo experience itself was very different from what we are normally used to, so fast paced, exiting competition and responsibility. This trip helped to set my goals for next year, this year I only made it in light rifle but felt so blessed to have the opportunity and there weren’t many girls shooting. It makes me excited and setting my goals higher for the upcoming season. I would recommend to anyone to take the challenge and have the experience! Opportunity of a lifetime!
Madelynn Farris Elizabeth, IN Gallup was very fun and a different experience for me. I got to meet a lot of new people from different states, which was neat! I have set a few goals for next year if I make it, because the competition is really tuff and I would like to make it to the short go one year. So that means I will have to practice harder to improve in my events. I hope to make it there again next year because it was a lot of fun and it taught me again that hard work pays off.
IJRA News Lane McPheeters Salem, IN My trip to Gallup, NM was a great one this year. We had no problems on the way out or the way back. I had a great time hanging out with my friends and family for the whole week straight and to top it all off, I won the National Championship in the Chute Dogging.
Mary Lloyd Mill Creek, IN My trip to Gallup New Mexico was the time of my life! I had fun meeting new people and competing against so many contestants. I hope I will get the opportunity to travel out west my freshman year of high school so I can have another fun and entertaining experience.
My first trip to New Mexico was a big step in my rodeo career. On the way out there my partner talked about the arena, steers and the saddles that we thought we would surly win. The scenery was beautiful and when we pulled into Red Rock State Park I thought to myself, how can it get any cooler than this? All in all it was a great learning experience. At the end of the week I went home knowing that for some people just because you are a champion in your home state, doesnâ€™t make you a National Champion. I now know and understand how important it is to keep practicing and always improve your skills to better yourself and keep working toward that next trip to the National Finals.
Dalton Hartle Culver, IN
Addie Keller Frankfort, IN My trip to Gallup, New Mexico was an experience I will never forget. I met tons of new people, and did lots of new things I may have never been able to do. I competed against over 1,000 contestants from all over the world in not only rodeo, but volleyball and tugof-war too! It is a trip of a lifetime and I would do it all over again right now if I could. It is an all around fun trip that anyone would have a blast going on. I know I did!

I enjoyed meeting new friends out at the nationals. I have gotten to know all the kids from our state much more. I loved all things the kids did. For a week we roped, roped and roped some more. It is a great family vacation, doing all the things our family loves to do. It really makes me want to work hard to make it out there again next year. I want to let all the younger kids know work hard to make it to the Nationals. We were busy everyday with roping, riding, and meeting new people.
Anna Dietrich Granville, IN
Going to Gallup was such an unforgettable experience. I met so many new people and I had such a fun time. Making it out there was exciting for me, but I never would have thought I would make it to the short go. Iâ€™m glad I got the privilege to travel there and experience something like this. All the hours in the truck were definitely worth it.
CHRISTIAN COWBOY COLLECTION
YOLO - Right?
w/ Christa Conway
You Only Live Once, Right? I seen that abbreviation/acronym - whatever you want to call it - on facebook a while back and was caught off guard at first. The post it was used in was referring to doing whatever you want in this life....who cares what the consequences might be.....with an attitude of “it’s my life, so I’ll do what makes me happy and forget everyone else.” Once I read the post and understood where the “poster” was coming from, it really made me sad. I wondered how many people have that kind of attitude. Probably more than I want to know. What a selfish way to look at one’s time here on earth. It also made me want to look at it from a different perspective. Now, I’m not saying that I don’t think we should be happy and enjoy our life while we make this trip - because I do believe that God wants us to be happy. I also understand and believe that we cannot realize true happiness unless we’ve had some experiences to give us perspective. (For example: You can’t enjoy the flowers without a little rain.) My perspective on the way I look at the whole “YOLO” movement, if you will, is that we only have once chance as we go through this world to REALLY MAKE IT COUNT! What do I mean? There are two very important questions to ask ourselves when thinking in the YOLO mindset. Question #1: When your time is through at the end of your “One trip around,” where will you be when you reach the other side? Question #2: What have you left behind for those you love? Let’s start with question number one. Where will you spend eternity? Have your choices while you’ve been running around “living” been good choices? (Of course, none of us are perfect......) But, have you chosen to put God first? There are many ways to describe salvation (being saved, being born again, etc), but the most important decision you can make while you are on this side is whether or not you choose to believe in God’s gift through His son, Jesus. This decision will not only give you eternal life in Heaven, but it will also give you Hope while you are here on earth. Let’s move on to question number two. What are you leaving behind for those you love? Are you leaving them peace of mind knowing
that they will see you again someday? Are you leaving them good memories of a life well lived, with purpose and meaning? For those who are Christians - have you shared your testimony with those who are lost? Have you been a light in your day to day life? Have you acknowledged that you are not perfect, but forgiven when you fail? You see, the way I choose to look at the YOLO movement for my life goes something like this: I’ll call this my YOLO GOAL-O (sorry, couldn’t resist...)... **I only live once. I want to make it count for something bigger than me. I want my life to be for HIM. I want my life to be about more than just a good time. I want my friends and family to know where I stand. I want to be a light for my friends and family. I want to know when my final day arrives that I will hear these
words: ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.’ Matthew 25:23** Now I am realistic enough to know that I will fail time and time again at this YOLO goal. I know that I am far from perfect. I just hope that every time I see those letters from here on out that I will have a different perception of what they mean to me. I hope that I have encouraged you to have the same mindset when you see or think “YOLO” and that you will choose to live your only trip through for Him as well. Until next month.... You Only Live Once - MAKE IT COUNT! Happy Trails & God Bless! Christa

Now I ani’t no saint But I learned a thing or two The sky can be cloudy But it’s mostly clear and blue
Yep my heads in the clouds But I have the rock under my feet That’s why I ride the bad ones And always keep my seat
Now Sky was a twister Here on the Broken Sin The harder them broncs bucked The bigger ol` Sky would grin
But Sky he just grinned Said boys I’m alright Cause I know the Big Boss And his power and might
Yep boys I always look up That’s why y’all call me Sky I know the owner of the Broken Sin He’s a heck`of`a guy
Colossians 3:2 Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth
Then one day it happened In the early spring Sky came crashing down While breakin` a fresh string
When I came to this spread We call the Broken Sin I told the Big Boss Of the places I had been
I’ll be back on my feet Tomorrow’s a new day So I’ll just lay here And take this time to pray
While snappin` out a broomtail She seemed to lose her feet Hooves toward the sun Sky never lost his seat
He Said I was forgiven And showed me love Told me to look to Him And to think on things above
One last thing fellers That bronc that fell on me I’ll be ridin` her by summer So y’all just let her be

One Last (& most important) thought… Salvation is a gift and a choice......
Read past issues of our Christian Cowboy Collection and the Christian Barrel Racer’s Newsletter at the website below!
Jesus died on the cross as the final sacrifice. When He was resurrected on the 3rd day, he defeated Satan for us. All we have to do is believe that He beat death and acknowledge it with our words. If we believe that and accept Him as our personal savior…we are promised eternal life with Him in Heaven. You can’t earn your way into Heaven; you have to believe your way there. So many people think they “aren’t good enough” to get to Heaven… But… Salvation is a GIFT from God and you don’t earn a gift. Gifts are something someone gives to you and for the gift to be yours, you have to accept it. All we have to do is accept that wonderful gift. I know I have…won’t you? But the gift is not like the trespass. For if the many died by the trespass of the one man, how much more did God’s grace and the gift that came by the grace of the one man, Jesus Christ, overflow to the many. Romans 5:15
For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16 That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved. Romans 10: 9-10

Indiana Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders Association - ITOBA NEWS Saint D’Aroak Shines Again at Hoosier Park
Hoosier Park Press Release - Saint D’Aroak once again showed her af-
finity for Hoosier Park as she captured the evening’s featured event, a $41,000 state bred allowance for fillies and mares, at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino on August 16. The three-year-old daughter of Saint Anddan pushed her career earnings over the $100,000 mark for trainer Randy Klopp as she posted her third win in six starts over Hoosier Park’s oval.Saint D’Aroak has finished in the money in all six of her lifetime starts at the Anderson track. With Daniel Coa back in the irons once again, Saint D’Aroak was in perfect striking position from the outset breaking from post eight. She stalked the early pacesetter, Sheza Cozy Gal under Fernando De La Cruz, through early fractions of :22.57 and :45.76. Slacker and Chris Russell held the rail in third while Cindy Sweet Cindy chased the pace on the outside in fourth. Saint D’Aroak and Coa began their quest for the lead as the field reached the three-quarter station in :58.70. Coming off the far turn, Coa angled the dark brown filly to the outside and she easily took over command in the stretch. Saint D’Aroak drew clear late and coasted home to a one and one half length triumph over Sheza Cozy Gal. Victoria Blu, ridden by Rodney Prescott, made a bid late in the lane to get up for the third place finish. The winning time was 1:12.32 for the six furlong event contested over a sloppy rated track. As the public’s second choice, Saint D’Aroak returned $7.80 for the win. “This filly likes the distance,” winning trainer Randy Klopp noted, “but seems to handle running short a little better. She won a stakes race here going short over a sloppy track last year, so I knew she could handle this race. I told Danny to ride his own race and he did. She’s been a really nice filly for us.” Saint D’Aroak notched the first win of her three-year-old campaign and her third lifetime win in 11 starts. Owned and bred by Cynthia and Dennis Claramunt and Randy Klopp, Saint D’Aroak was victorious in the $84,000 added “The City of Anderson” stake at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino last year.
Big Town is Big in Hoosier Park Feature
Big Town and Marlon St. Julien defeated Chilled and Antonio Lopez Castanon in a determined stretch duel to take home top honors in the feature, a $41,000 allowance optional claiming event, at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino on August 10. Leaving from post three, Big Town was unhurried out of the gate. Adulare broke alertly in the abbreviated field of six and went to the front under Fernando De La Cruz. Jockey Marlon St. Julien relaxed his mount on the outside while trading back and forth with Adulare for the lead. Chilled was also well placed four wide in third. Adulare went a quarter in :23.58, as the order remained unchanged down the backside. Adulare continued to call the shots, setting a moderate pace of :47.97 as St. Julien kept Big Town in perfect striking position in the three path. When the field hit the turn after three-quarters in 1:12.13, Chilled began to challenge Adulare on the outside but Big Town would not go away. The dark brown gelding ranged up to take the lead when asked to win a long stretch duel by three-parts of a length over Chilled. The heavily favored, Northern Candyride under Rodney Prescott remained off the pace for much of the race but made a bid late in the lane to round out the tri-fecta. Big Town returned $10.00 to his backers. “This horse races much better over the dirt, so I thought he would be
good here,” winning trainer Tim Glyshaw noted. “The racing style here fits him, it seems to be more speed favoring and he likes to be in the race. The plan was to get the lead but he didn’t break well. Marlon (St. Julien) did a great job with this horse tonight, he sat patiently on him and that basically won the race for us.” The final time for the mile and one-sixteenth distance was 1:43.99 over the fast dirt track. With his third victory in 13 starts, the 4-year-old gelded son of Speightstown improved his lifetime bankroll to $122,581 for owner Sure Shot Stables, Inc. Big Town was bred in Kentucky by Calumet Farm.
Hard Luck Monk Rolls The Upset
Hard Luck Monk pulled the 25-1 upset over nine other contenders in the $50,000 Indiana-bred allowance at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino on August, 2. Hoosier Park’s all-time leading jockey, Rodney Prescott, piloted the 3-year-old chestnut gelding for trainer Mike Nance. Leaving from post seven, Hard Luck Monk left sharply only to yield the lead to Buster Rose and Thomas Pompell who set the pace early with a first quarter clocked in 22.24. Hard Luck Monk tracked the leaders in second while Man of Miracles was chasing in third. Unreachable was well placed on the outside in fourth. As the race turned for home, the field began to tighten. Buster Rose clung to the lead as Hard Luck Monk angled off the rail into the turn and was able to put a nose in front. Making his first Hoosier Park start of the season off a tenth place finish in the $200,000 Governor’s Stake at Indiana Downs on July 12, Hard Luck Monk edged away to a one and three-quarter length victory. Buster Rose held on for second, while the public’s second choice, Unreachable Star, finished third. Hard Luck Monk covered the six furlongs in a final time of 1:08.97. “It all worked out for him tonight, he likes to be in the mix of things,” Nance said of the Hunting Hard gelding. “We ran him back long and he was no good at all so I just threw that last race out. I thought he would be pretty good in here.” Hard Luck Monk improved his career record to 4-0-0 from 9 starts while pushing his career earnings over $100,000 for M.Y. Stables, Inc. He was bred in Indiana by South River Ranch and is out of the Executive Order mare Sister Monk. “He beat some pretty nice horses tonight,” Nance noted. “He’s only three, but he has a lot of heart and is finally starting to come around.”

Mystery of the Month
No Winner Yet......
e’re still looking for a winner for August’s mystery cowgirl. Our picture is of a cute little girl on a pretty gray horse. This little girl has grown up to be a beautiful lady who has became very succesful in the horse industry. Matter of fact, you may have called on her a time or two if you live in her part of the country. One more hint for a little help - she lives and works in “Southern Indiana.” If you can correctly identify our cowgirl and her horse, include a year and maybe even a location....and give us as much information as possible....you can win your choice of a one year subscription to The Horse Resource, a “Horsey Hat” or a “Horsey-T.” Call 765-744-7363 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
We Have A Winner!
Delmar and Bev Mongosa knew the mystery cowboy in this picture. His name was Joe Sarver, he was one of the “Denver Boys” who competed at the horse shows held in Denver, Indiana. (They still have shows there today!) The horse’s name was Firefly and we’re told that everyone in Denver rode her at one time or another.. The picture was taken in 1958 when Joe was just 19 years old.. The baby blue golf hats were what all of the boys wore to the shows back then. Joe passed away in 1997 leaving a horse show. We received a letter from Joe’s son, Terry Sarver who gave us some insight to a very competitive section of Indiana where most of the “Denver Boys” lived. His dad always said, “If you can win at Denver, you can win anywhere.” Some of the Denver Boys have passed on, but there are a still a several going strong, including our winner this month, Delmar Mongosa and his family who are still competeing and winning. Some of the other names that Terry mentioned were: Joe Mongosa, Bruce Corrall, Dick Cole, Paul Thiry, Don Heckathorn, Rudd Mongosa. Thanks for sending in your picture, Terry! Congrats to Delmar for identifying our Mystery. He chose to extend his subscription for another year.
We Need Your Pictures From the Past..... We are running low on photos.....Please send us your older photos of horsemen and women (and kids) that are still active in the horse business today. Or if you have pictures of a well known horse or event....that will mix things up a bit. We’re up for some new mysterys if you are!! Keep sending us those photos!!
