The Gold Rain

The Gold Rain

There are many reasons I love riding in Colorado. The views to vast places beyond, the cool air up high, the exciting high country weather and the lack of pestering insects. While driving to the Flat Tops wilderness this past week I was reminded why September is the most wonderful time of the year in the Colorado Mountains. Riding at 10,000 feet and above is a breathtaking thrill. I have been lucky enough to ride many of Colorado Wilderness areas,...

You Forgot What? Prepare Beyond the Basics When Traveling

You Forgot What? Prepare Beyond the Basics When Traveling

I recently went on a two-day get away into south central New Mexico. My friend Barb asked me to help her transport a mustang to the Ruidoso area. She said that the scenery would be very pretty in that region.  I had never been there so I jumped at the chance to get out of the geographically locked-in area of southwest Colorado. When we hit the road I was prepared with food, water and clothing. I had checked the forecast...

Trusted Equine Products – John Ewing Company

Trusted Equine Products – John Ewing Company

For decades, knowledgeable horse owners have relied on quality Formula 707 products to keep their horses in top condition – looking good and feeling great. But because the John Ewing Company, makers of Formula 707, handcrafts its supplements and other products in small batches, they don’t produce the huge volume of product made by some of the mega-manufacturers in the equine industry. In consequence, you can’t get Formula 707 “just anywhere” like you can some big name brands. If Formula...

Rain Day Horse Activities

Rain Day Horse Activities

July 1st  was going to be our high country riding season kick off ride. My daughter and I planned a ride at Cave Basin, a high elevation trail near Vallecito Reservoir in southwest Colorado. We woke up to heavy and steady rain. Although we were disappointed about not being able to get to our 11,000 feet elevation ride, the rain was soothing and we were glad to have a day to relax. It was too muddy to ride at home...

Because of this I can ride my high-powered machine horse or my super laid back horse. I can choose which one suits my mood and my mission.  Many people are well matched with their horses...

Coming Home To the Cabin

Coming Home To the Cabin

Horses remember experiences from long ago and as we headed out on highway 550 north of Durango CO, I was thinking how fast 11 years passes by. It had been 11 years since my horses had spent a summer at my family cabin outside of Glenwood Springs. The first time Wylie lived at the cabin was in 1996 when I moved from Minnesota to Colorado. He also spent the summer of 2005 there recuperating from lameness. Now 20 years later...
