I got sponsored by Pharm-Aloe Equine and helped out in the booth Sunday alongside Buckaroo Balance Christina Savitsky. Her clinics were awesome and I even helped her with one!
Christina introduced me to Mike Brashear Horsemanship who is the coach of c**t starting at Colorado State University.
I hope to see them all again soon.

Temu for the fail...turns out it IS just like wish and everything you get is shrunken size 🤪 It wouldn't even fit over Uniqa's tiny nose!
She feels better!!! Green grass & river riding with great company...I was so worried I'd never get to do this again with her! Colic is such a general term, there are different types & no set cure. I am thankful for Pharm-Aloe Equine helping sooth her entire GI tract & keep her hydrated.
Wow, rough day!! Had to say "See ya in December" to my long-time student Eva Haag. She's off to college in Montana! With an interest in organic chemistry, horses & the environment....I am so excited to find out what amazing things are in store for her!! She has busted butt the last 2 months riding multiple horses a week! She helped a ton while I was off teaching & every Sunday so I can sleep-in & not do chores 7 days a week. Saying I'm going to miss her feels like such a huge understatement!!
And as if that wasn't emotionally exhausting enough, Prim has been colicking....so friendly reminder....a 4-pack of Aloe Gut isn't enough to keep the vet away! (Our vet is doing amazing things in Africa saving Rhinos with Council of Contributors right now, but another vet is on-call aware of our treatment & potential needs) Prim is getting Pharm-Aloe Equine throughout the day I ran through my Aloe-Gut stash pretty quick (you can give them every 15 mins!) Now I'm filling an empty aloe-gut syringe with liquid concentrate. I'll be up checking through the night, soothing healing thoughts are much appreciated!!
You know what you get when you don't get what you want? Experience!!
I once had an instructor tell me, "Do as I say not as I do" I was appalled & vowed to never be THAT...
Here I am on Uniqa my 5 year old Azteca filly who is about to hit 100 sporadic saddles over this lifetime (she's been with me before I'm sure of it!). My friend Amy caught these photos of me "walking the walk I talk!" Thanks Amy!!!
I'm looking for symmetry & visual ques to help find better balance.
Some updates now that I'm back in NM!!

So thankful!!! I love living in Corrales within riding distance to pizza & beer!!! I am exceptionally thankful to our little barn family, boarders who trust us with their horses, continue to grow & learn, and all get along!!! I was reminded today that so few barns are drama-free. It's not lost on me how special this is 💜🤠

Cold days are good days to plan!! May clinic here in Corrales, July in New Hampshire, how about your place this fall?
To go with the the post from Rudy Horsemanship…
A comparison of what above the contact, behind the contact, and on the contact looks like from the saddle.
One of the trickiest things about learning correct biomechanics is that we are often expected to learn from ground’s-eye views, and never given examples of what things look like from the saddle.
This is a good visual…
￼￼On a technical level, we are seeing the results of extensor muscles over the topline working more in the first picture, flexor muscles under the topline working more in the second picture, and a balance of extensors and flexors in the third picture, where no muscle group is working more than the other, which will allow throughness.
(And if you’re wondering how to fix this…
Fix the first one by releasing the topline extensors, by releasing the poll with a slow-motion squeeze and release of your fingers on the reins, like a massage, until the nose drops to gravity.
Repeat until the horse starts to lower their poll and stretch down.
Fix the second one by releasing the underline flexors, by bumping your reins up gently with a ‘demi arret,’ until the poll elevates and opens.)
So much to think about
“I don’t want much, I just want to groom once in a while and go for an easy trail ride here and there”-
This is a statement folks often make, which makes perfect sense from a human point of view. It doesn’t require much time, effort or skill gaining, and the expectation appears low- for the horse to just stand quietly, or happily trod along down the trail.
From a riders perspective, grooming requires relaxing and enjoying brushing their horse. Trail riding usually involves relaxing and leaving the horse mostly alone to enjoy the outdoors and company.
From a horses point of view, however, this is not so easy a task. To ”just be brushed,” the horse has to have enough confidence to leave the herd, the skills to lead well to the barn, the ability to stand tied quietly for a length of time in isolation away from friends, to stay focused enough to stand despite the distractions and movement around them in the barn.
That’s a lot!
To “just trail ride,” the horse has to have the afore mentioned skills, plus load in a trailer, ride in the trailer and unload (those are all separate skills), leave friends quietly and ride calmly past all kinds of input and stimulus- they have to know what rider input to tune into (legs and reins), and which to shut out (rustling around to get a granola bar out of saddle bags, yammering to friends). They have to manage terrain with balance, leave or join other horses, or ride past other people, dogs, bikes, etc. They often have little guidance from a rider who’s expectations and attention to the horse is low (who is relaxing and enjoying company or scenery, not giving attentive communications to the horse).
That’s a TALL order for a horse, and quite a drastic difference in expectation between horse and rider in terms of education, attention and workload.
Think from the horses point of view. Don’t skimp on the education, the awareness, and don’t leave your horse to their own devices for “simple tasks.” A horse is a horse, and not a human- and they see our world very differently. It’s on us to prepare and guide them.
Last day to get yourself and your horse(s or mules or donkeys or ponies or …) signed up for the mileage challenge! You can join for less than $25 to track your miles, and pick your own prize, ranging from free and on up!
