More Winning Ways by Lyndee Stairs

How do you tell if your barrel horse is hurt or just being bad? Or are you sure he even understands what it is you want?

Both heat and cold can help to heal leg injuries. I want to explain just in case you don’t know, because I have not always understood this myself.  Applying cold helps most injuries in the first 24 to 48 hours following injury. That goes for you or your horse. Heat helps most after about three days or with chronic conditions. And as always, if in doubt please contact your veterinarian.

I know that it is human nature to want as much money for anything we sell as is possible. I also believe, I never want to get the very last dollar that a horse is worth. In this way, I leave some for the next guy and everybody is happy that way. I am in the horse business and I hope you either get your champion or make money. This way, just maybe, you will come back and buy another one.

First of all, I want to say “A basic foundation must be in place with both the rider and the horse.” And, it all starts with your cues and your consistency. The better your hands are the better you horse will be. The better your seat is, the better your horse will be.
