This series of VIDEO are CLIPS that I think might interest
people.

HARD TO EAT THROUGH A FEED BAG - Shag decided to
leave after eating his lunch. He found out he couldn't eat
any more with the feed bag on his nose.

SHORTY STEALING WATER - Shorty thinks what ever -
water or feed - is in the next pen is better than what he has.

PATCHES AND THE BOT FLY In the fall there is a little
bee type flying insect that lays eggs on the horses in order
to complete their life cycle. It can't be more than 3/4 inch
long but one little bug can move an entire group of horses.

THE DOGS ENTERTAIN - There are times the dogs are
fun to watch when they play. This was one of those times
featuring Slinky, red heeler, and Noki, boarder collie.

SNAKE DIGGING One summer as a lesson started we
spotted this bull snake 'digging'. The lesson was delayed
while we all watched him.

TUMBLEWEEDS HAVE A USE The Mini, Peanut, found a use
for tumbleweeds after a storm blew in an abundance of
them.
I like to take pictures and videos every chance I get. I hope you enjoy these. Some are
educational and some are just fun. This will give  you a little insight as to what happens when
you are not here. This page is a work in progress - I add videos as I have time to work them
up.
There are stories occurring on a regular basis - both about the students and horses. I have
put links below to some of them.

Click here and it will take you to all the videos I have posted on Face Book.
This  series of VIDEO CLIPS will give you some
information on
lessons and what riding is about.

SADDLE UP - A look at the saddling process during a lesson.

FIRST TROT This is a 4-year-old on Teefa experiencing
her first trot.

RIDING BAREBACK Riding bareback means you do not have
a saddle. This is a clip of different students riding
bareback at the walk, trot and lope/canter.

WHY DO I BOUNCE? Each gait (walk, trot, lope/canter)
that the horse is going has different foot falls, therefore
that sets the tone for bounce in the rider.

A CHRISTMAS VISIT This girl rode Goober for me for
several  months so we could use her in the school again. She
came for a visit (2012) and I put this video together.
These are some STORIES of student successes that occur
during their riding lessons.

These two stories should be read one after the other.

#1 -
Meltdown

#2 - Meltdown to Role Model

When students are presented with a situation in which they
have to do more than usual I recognized them with a
Cow Boy
or Cow Girl Up.  The title of this album is The Cowboy Way.
