By Tanya Nolte, VN, DipHom

When spring is in the air, the mating and foaling season is too. It is a time that all horse owners generally look forward to and become very excited about. However, considerations should be made to assist your prospective breeding mare to ensure that she is kept in optimum health in order to produce a sound and healthy offspring.


Martha Olivo and United Horsemanship - Helping Horsemen Become Better Horsemen
By Elizabeth Harris

"Horses and I just 'find' each other…we always have. They have been my best teachers, and at many important levels, we keep each other whole."
~ Martha Olivo

Martha Olivo has been trimming horses since she was 14 years old. Her family, all 12 of them, lived in North Carolina then, and every day she walked past Topsy, a foundered pony who lived in a neighboring pasture. They made a deal. Martha would trim Topsy's feet, and Topsy would eventually let her ride. It was the beginning of a romance…and a commitment to horses that became Martha's life's work.

Vaulting - A Horse Sport Where Spirits Soar!
By Nancy Stevens-Brown

When I was a very young girl, I lived in the city. All I ever dreamed of then was to see, be around, and ride horses. One day, two horsemen rode by our house dressed in their parade best on shiny chestnuts with silver mounted saddles. For me it was Roy Rogers, Gene Autry, Trigger, and all my western daydreams come true. When I ran up to ask whether I could pet their beautiful mounts, they looked down indifferently and said "No."


Christina Chinnici and Bolera, the 27-year-old Appaloosa, take a break.
