Miss Linda & Alana had a nice lesson today
We had the Halloween undertaker here today... Janice & Jackpot 🎃🧡🎃
Cecily & Charlie working hard today ❤️

Had the pleasure of working with Bridgette Russo and her adorable gelding Tex today. ❤️❤️❤️
- When my instructor repeats to me: ′′Straighten your shoulders and open your chest!” He’s not just teaching me how to stand up. He's teaching me that in life we should always walk straight and face problems head on.
- When my instructor asks me to lower my legs and keep them close to the horse, he teaches me that in life we do not allow distractions and that little is enough to deviate from his path.
- When my instructor tells me "Too much hand, don't hang on to the reins! "He teaches me to give and not to take, with the greatest respect of others.
- When he yells and repeats endlessly: "Look forward in the direction you want to go!” He teaches me the importance of setting goals and never losing sight of them to achieve them.
- When I ask to move up or do more and my instructor says I'm not ready, he teaches me that in life you must always respect your rhythm and never skip the steps.
- When I fall and get back up, I learn that there are always setbacks, times when we back up, but the important thing is to get up more determined than before.
- If I hold my breath during a ride and he jokingly tells me "breathe! You are purple!” I understand that you have to let your emotions flow in order to get rid of them.
- When at the end of the course I am happy with the work done and my instructor says to me′ ′Well done, thank your teacher′′ I know he is not referring to himself but to my horse.
- Now you, you who are watching a rider pass in the saddle, keep saying that riding is not a sport because it is the horse that does everything. I agree. Horse riding is not a sport. It is a life lesson.
Super proud of Cecily and Charlie today we took a little field trip to the equestrian park.
Big boy Rio was a snuggle bug today Xoxox

Here are the the tools you need to read between the lines when looking at your horse’s feet.
We will outline a five-point foot check you can use to evaluate basic foot balance. With this information in hand, you’ll be able to tell if your horse’s feet are happy, or when trouble might be brewing.

Fall is officially in full swing! Now is the time to crack down on housing, nutrition, and preventative health strategies suitable for the arrival of winter.
The graphic below lists some essential items on the horse owner's fall to-do checklist, but there is much more that needs to be done—like having your horse rugs repaired and waterproofed; securing and storing hay properly; assessing your shelters for safety and soundness; etc.)
Your equine veterinarian is one of your greatest allies this season: be sure to give them a call soon to discuss vaccination and deworming protocols appropriate for your horse’s situation; use this opportunity to chat about recommended changes in nutrition and exercise program as well!
A nice day for ground work with Remy & Jazzy ❤️❤️
Baby D enjoyed her ground work today 🧡
Janice & Blackjack had a fun lesson today with Dania 🧡
Kaylee & Diego having some fun today for their lesson with Dania 🧡
We asked, "Trail Etiquette: Who goes first?" And it was clear things were...confusing. So never mind the quiz, here's the order! 1. Runners, bikers, and hikers yield to equestrians. 2-3. Downhill traffic should yield to uphill traffic. 4. Bicyclists should yield to everyone. When in doubt, give other users the right-of-way.
Trail etiquette is key to a safer hiking experience for everyone. 🚵🥾🐴 Check out this helpful guide and get ready to explore Arizona's breathtaking trail systems: https://azstateparks.com/share-the-trail. 🌵🌄
Good trail management combined with user education means a better experience for everyone who uses Arizona’s trails! Respect and expect other users while on the trail. Show courtesy by anticipating other trail users around corners and blind spots. Respect wildlife too! You’re a guest in their home areas so tread lightly. Respect public and private property. Leave no trace and pack out litter.
Be friendly and courteous. Greet other trail users with a simple “Hello!” or “Nice day today!” Avoid greetings that may be misconstrued, such as “On your left.” Directional greetings may cause confusion and lead to incidents on the trail. Keep it friendly, and keep it simple.

This happens more than most people realize
While it’s a common equine emergency, espophageal obstruction (“choke”) can look alarming, especially if you've never seen it before. Unlike in human medicine, where choking refers to a tracheal (or windpipe) obstruction, choke in horses refers to an obstruction of the esophagus, the muscular tube that carries food from the mouth to the stomach.
Most commonly, choking occur when horses eat concentrated feed too quickly without chewing it appropriately, which results in a firm bolus lodged in the animal's esophagus. However, esophageal obstruction can also occur with hay or straw, hard treats, carrots, or nonfood objects. Poor dentition, which leads to inadequate chewing, is also a frequent cause of choke.
While common, chokes can have serious consequences so be sure to call your veterinarian as soon as you notice signs of choke. A bad choke is fairly obvious to both veterinarians and horse owners, but a mild choke could be confused with an upper respiratory tract infection or colic.
