A magnificent wild horse who was “gifted” the opportunity to remain free. Reveille round up release; February 3, 2017. While I am relieved for the release of the “chosen few,” I am despondent of the ones left behind to a captive life, never again to taste freedom. I had the privilege to attend this round up with my experienced guide, Laura Leigh. Leigh is the founder of Wild Horse Education who effectively campaigns for their right to remain free and to be treated humanely. For more information: wildhorseeducation.org. Photo: Marie Millman.

WITHIN THE LAW
The After Life of Horses
by Leigh Hilton, Estate Planning Attorney

If you breed horses, race them or just enjoy riding; whether you own many horses or just one special one, you know that pleasure and responsibility come in one package. Feeding, grooming, exercising, training, and providing shelter are a few of your commitments as a horse person. Think about what would happen though, if you suddenly became incapacitated or died. Would your horse(s) be cared for properly? Read on as Estate Planning Attorney Leigh Hilton offers advice to help horse guardians navigate this difficult subject.

 

WILD HORSES
The Children of Reveille
by Marie Millman

The Children of Reveille and their discriminatory fate; this story is based upon my maiden attendance of a wild horse gather located in the Reveille HMA (herd management area) managed by the BLM and its most vulnerable and piteous victims, the babies. Wild horse gathers and removals are infamous for destroying mustang family units; read on as author and mustang advocate Marie Millman relays the fate of the BLM’s youngest quarry.

TO YOUR HEALTH
Warm-up Exercises for the Senior Rider
by David Ackerman, DC

Warm-up exercises prepare your muscles for action; this, in turn, helps prevent injuries. Releasing the tight muscles with stretching prevents tearing of the muscle and tendons. This “ounce of prevention” is especially important for senior riders, who may have a longer and more difficult post-injury recovery period. In this article, David Ackerman, DC shares several low-impact exercises that are specifically designed with the senior rider in mind, but will benefit equestrians of any age.

IN TRAINING
Transition to Bitless…Yes, You Can!
by Missy Wryn

For many, riding bitless is a scary idea. The common concerns are “I won’t have any control without a bit,” “I would never ride my horse without a bit, it’s too dangerous,” and, “I’m scared that my horse will take off without a bit.”  Transitioning your horse from riding with a bit to bitless is relatively easy when you learn a few safety techniques that put you in control. Whether you ride English or Western, Missy Wryn tells you how you can get started with just a simple rope halter.
