Morning Meeting

The event started off with a clinic prior to the competition.  Mark Grafton showed us his skills starting two colts with Glenn there to lend a helping hand when Mark was ready to ride.

My Comfort Zone by JoAnne Newsome

I like it here in my comfort zone.  The zone helps my mind rest.  I simply go on autopilot and let my mind wander as I go about tasks I have done a thousand times.  There is a sense of safety here.  I know how to handle day to day routine tasks that come up.  No problems, but…while this zone is a place of comfort, it is also a place of complacency, stasis, and inertia.  It can become a place of depression and frustration; a place of boredom!

This is a test designed to prepare you for a safe ride. The higher the points you score the safer you are.

 

Horsemanship is not a straight line.

Horsemanship is not a straight line, it's a spiral. You continually come back to things you thought you understood and see the deeper truths.

The Road Less Saddled...written by Jenn Webster

My husband hit the road recently to attend a little event you may have heard of – the AQHA World Championship Show held in Oklahoma City, OK. With his steed safely tucked into the trailer, his luggage plunked on the back seat and his hat carefully placed in a hat can, Clay set out for the 2,785 kilometer drive.

Glenn Stewart looking back at Road To The Horse 2012!

Hello everybody, it's Glenn here. I have just now started to come out of the fog of all the excitement from the weekend at the 2012 Road to the Horse World Championship of Colt Starting in Murfreesboro, TN - it was absolutely thrilling, exciting, challenging, and a joy to be involved with. I would not have...

Does Your Horse Seek Your Approval?

In the above picture, by way of interests sake, this horse is most definitely not seeking my approval.  He is extremely wary, and ready to plant a hoof on my head at any second.  This indeed, is the very opposite of seeking approval.  In a way, for my own self preservation, I am seeking his, because depending on how he interprets what I'm doing, he will fight or flee.  The give and take in horse human relationships is very interesting.

Final day at the Calgary Stampede

If  you have already seen the last day then you will know that I ended up in third, the day they hand out the buckle and the big check. I have to congratulate the fellows that came in first and second. I thought they had real nice runs and I agree with the judges. I have judged a few events and competitions and it is a thankless job and a very tough job. There is always someone who doesn’t agree with the way the judges see it but I for one thought I got beat fair and square.

The Horse Ranch Natural Horsemanship Tournament Update!

The Horse Ranch Horsemanship tournament has come and gone for another year! We had wonderful weather and a great bunch out to watch and compete. The course was different again this year, all 4 savvys mixed together with a 7 minute overall time limit and a 30 second time limit per obstacle. We had a campfire, jumps, bridges, alley ways, brush piles and lots of other tasks to complete. Everyone did very well and it was a real crowd pleaser. A few admitted to being way outside their comfort zone which is part of the learning process.

Natural Horsemanship Tournament September 18th

We are excited to announce our annual Natural Horsemanship Tournament at The Horse Ranch in Baldonnel BC! This year will be more exciting than ever, we've added participant categories with prizes awarded for first, second and third places.  There will be a variety of different tasks in four areas of savvy, two on the ground:  Online, Liberty; and two in the saddle: Freestyle, and Finesse.  Come out and join the fun!

Getting them to follow a feel and lead, trimming, and building their confidence with humans.

High & Wild Highlights

Highlights from High & Wild...August 17, 2009

Here is some of what the students had to say about their highlights.

...Realizing and seeing what I had actually learned and acheived over the past 3 months and putting it to practice....

 

Moving horses from the pasture and up to Jackass Ridge.  Having to stop and listen to find out where they were heading and then getting into position quickly to keep them together and going the right direction.  I am looking forward to doing this again.  Thanks so much for all the new experiences....

What's Happening Today - We're still High & Wild, with a few thoughts about roping a horse.

As with a lot of things, there are good and bad ways to go about them.  Roping a horse a manner that is smooth, calm and effective can be a low stress way to build a rapport between horse and human.  Used properly, it can build confidence, respect, and help the horse learn how to yield from pressure and follow a feel.  Used improperly, it can create the opposite - a lot of brace and fear.

What's Happening Today - We're High & Wild!

July 26, 2009  On a Wilderness Horsemanship Learning Adventure that is!   For the 7th year in a row we're back in the mountains of Northern BC for three weeks of glorious horsemanship, great students, beautiful weather and its SO GOOD TO BE BACK!  I can't believe how much things stay the same here!  Every year I prepare myself  for the inevitable change...

 

 

The Lusitanos are here!

As most of you know, we had an open house to view the Lusitanos on May 30th.  They arrived the night before at 5 pm.  The next morning we had a few hours to give them a quick makeover for their debut on Canadian soil.  Theses horses have done more touring than most people.  The flight from Brazil to Florida is about 10 hours. Once they arrived they spent about a month in Florida, then we hauled them to Oklahoma and boarded them at a facility for two months before we moved them to Tom & Shelly Ryans McBride Ranch in McBride BC.  Tom & Shelly loaded up a horsetrailer full and brought them to The Horse Ranch for the Open House.
