Total Horse Training arena

The first beautiful weekend in October was the day selected for the Buckaroo Balance Clinic held at Total Horse Training in Edgewood, NM.   Riders from all over the state participated in the all day event.  The weather remained mild except for a typical New Mexico breeze.   All the horses and riders remained well behaved in spite of the breeze, flapping tents and the scary seated observers!  The day began with Christell Thomas of Body Dynamics Studio engaging the participants in yoga poses to limber and warm up stiff muscles.  Stretching was done from the seated position under the event’s tent.  Limbered and ready to begin the riders warmed up their horses in the large arena.  Each horse and rider were afforded individual attention from Christina and Christell analyzing everything from saddle fit to rider position.  The goals of this clinic were to help each rider to achieve more comfortable and safer riding.  The group consisted of ‘born in the saddle’ types, barrel racing champs, to weekend riders just wanting to improve their skills.  All the exercises were designed specifically by Christina from her Therapeutic riding background and Christell Thomas from her lifelong riding experience, Pilates and yoga training.  The end of the day brought many compliments from the riders on how well they thought their balance and comfort had improved as well as comments from the observers as how they observed the changes in both rider and horse.  We all look forward to another Buckaroo Balance and Body Dynamics Clinic!  Thanks to Laurie Boultinghouse of Total Horse Training for hosting the event at her great area!

Happy Trails!

I’ve recently had the good fortune to become re aquainted with an avid equestrian mother and daughter team determined to help abandoned and rescued horses! These terrific ladies are volunteers at the Edgewood Equine Rescue Walk n Circles. They are talented and experienced riders as well as trainers and their new focus will be a trail riding business utilizing horses from Walking n Circles. I can’t think of a more worthwhile organization! In utilizing these horses they will be giving them a job and hopefully a great life! Check out their website and give them a try! Its a great cause!

January in New Mexico

Yes that is snow on the ground!  We had a really early winter but headed to the bosque as soon as it was dry enough to be safe!

Casanova donned his new red halter and a Santa hat for Christmas and wished everyone a merry Christmas!   He’s very happy now that it is 2012 and he’s past his little brush with cancer.

Where else but New Mexico can you trail ride year round?  In the summer we typically stay in the mountains and in the winter we travel down to the Bosque and ride by the Rio Grande!

An added bonus is seeing the geese, herons, ducks on the river and porcupines in the trees!  I’ve even read that we get Pelicans in New Mexico, I have yet to see them but apparently they come to enjoy our beautiful weather!

We love to meet new equine enthusiasts so send me a note and we’ll invite you to ride with us!

There has been an outbreak of a horrid equine disease: Rhino EHV-1 (Equine Herpesvirus).  This is a mutant strain of the neurological variation of Rhino, there is no vaccine for it, and it is lethal.
There are multiple confirmed deaths due to EHV in Arizona, California, Utah, Colorado, Canada, Idaho, and unfortunately, is spreading like you cannot believe.  It is believed that a horse with the virus attended the NCHA Western National Championship cutting in Ogden, UT and has caused a massive cross contamination.  All the horses that are dead or are being treated were vaccinated for Rhino, it doesn’t matter, this strain does not respond to any vaccine.  The first death was a Canadian cutting horse that attended the Ogden show, there have been more in Weld County Colorado, there is a barrel racing stable in Colorado that has a confirmed case, which shows that it is rapidly and easily spreading through different disciplines and through many venues – CSU is now full and most Vets are not accepting Rhino horses, and have considered worldwide experts in this matter.  This is considered an emerging disease. It is behaving in an extreme manor. A similar outbreak occurred before, and at CSU, despite the fact the school runs one of the nation’s top veterinary biosecurity programs, the EHV virus spread to over 20 equine patients on the premises, and spread out of control.
The EHV-1 organism spreads quickly from horse to horse and the neurologic form of the virus can reach high morbidity and mortality rates. The incubation period of EHV-1 is typically 2-10 days, but there has been a case of a horse showing symptoms as many as 12 days after contamination. In horses infected with the neurologic strain of EHV-1, clinical signs may include: nasal discharge, discoordination, hind end weakness, recumbency, lethargy, urine dribbling and diminished tail tone. Prognosis depends on severity of signs and the period of recumbency. There is no specific treatment for EHV-1. Treatment of symptoms may include intravenous fluids, anti-inflammatory drugs and other appropriate supportive treatment. Currently, there is no equine vaccine that has a label claim for protection against the neurological strain of the virus.
Horse-to-horse contact, aerosol transmission, and contaminated hands, equipment, tack, and feed all play a role in disease spread.   They cannot stress enough about the cross contamination, this deadly virus can be on anything – your steering wheel in your truck, door handles, trailer latches, your purse, your hat, sunglasses, cell phone, pop or food wrapper, bucket, feed pan, hay bag, rubber bands, brushes, tack, boots, clothing, ANYTHING you touch or rub against could have the virus on it!
PLEASE monitor your horses, the first symptom of this disease is a spike in temperature of 102 degrees.  Horses with severe clinical signs of neurological EHV-1 illness are thought to have large viral loads in their blood and nasal secretions and therefore, present the greatest danger for spreading the disease. Immediate separation and isolation of identified suspect cases and implementation of appropriate biosecurity measures are key elements for disease control.
This is a serious matter that demands immediate attention, becoming aware and knowledge about this detrimental outbreak is a necessity – and we ALL, as equine owners, trainers, and event producers MUST do our part to STOP the spread of this horrible mutant and deadly virus.  Serious thought needs to be made on hosting events within infected states and their bordering neighbors.  Many national level events that are scheduled within the next month have been CANCELLED to STOP THE SPREAD of this disease.
This information is taken from very reliable sources, here are a couple articles you can read for yourself below.  We will be hearing a lot more about this, please stay alert to the latest information.

Karen and griends in the Gutierrez open space

Karen, Sherry and Janice Trail riding in the Sandia Mountains

It was the middle of February and we were able to ride in the Gutierrez Open Space in the Sandia Mountains near Albuquerque, with an altitude of over 8,000 feet! We navigated through some mud and leftover snow but overall what a beautiful ride! That is why we live in New Mexico! Our friend and good riding buddy Karen had some friends from Ohio visiting and it was our pleasure to escort them into the open space. They were overwhelmed by the beauty of the mountains and the views offered by our well worn trail! Only 2 weeks ago, we like many others in the country experienced zero and below temperatures, freezing pipes and lots of snow, but our beautiful ‘Land of Enchantment’ doesn’t disappoint; we were enjoying 50 degree weather and gorgeous sunshine!  they enjoyed their ride on the amazing horses from Enchanted Gaits Farm and will be forever converts to the gaited horse community!

January horse back ridingThis is why we live in New Mexico, horseback riding in January!  Sure we needed coats and Rip even brought his scarf but as you can see it was warm enough to get the horses sweaty!  A good time was had by all, perfect blue sky not a cloud in sight!  We sympathize with those who are dealing with ice and snow and all we have to say is “move to New Mexico”!

Where else but New Mexico can you ride year round?  In the summer we typically stay in the mountains and in the winter we travel down to the Bosque and ride by the Rio Grande!  An added bonus is seeing the geese, herons, and ducks on the river!  I’ve even read that we get Pelicans in New Mexico, I have yet to see them but apparently they come to enjoy our beautiful weather!

Labor Day weekend found the NM contingent of the Great Western Paso Fino Horse Association trekking to Utah to join members of other states for a fantastic weekend!  To say a great time was had by all would the understatement of the century!  Beautiful scenery, great weather,  wonderful people and last but certainly not least, fantastic horses!  Organized by our president Judi and our webmaster Carol from Utah it couldn’t have been better!  Moab caters to outdoor fun of every category!  It seems to be the 4 wheeling capitol as evidenced by all manner of vehicles, bikes, motorcycles, and 4 wheelers.    Along with all of that there is a very nice horse facility complete with an indoor arena, outdoor arena, racetrack and first class stalls!  The facilities were as nice as the NM State Fair Grounds here in Albuquerque.  We utilized the indoor arena for some Horse Soccer!  What a blast

Nine of us from the New Mexico contingent traveled the 8 hours to Moab.   Some of the more hilarious moments happened at the Grotto of the Seven Mile Canyon ride!  At the end of the 7 miles there is a pond of water that some of the participants did not hesitate to shed their clothing and jump in!  Thereby christened Cowgirl Grotto as most of the participants were indeed cowgirls.  One brave male participant shall remain unnamed and can share his own photos if he so chooses!

The entire weekend was a success as everyone had a great time and left with great memories and new friends!  Thanks to Judi and Carole and all the other organizers, we really appreciate all your hard work!  Looking forward to the next adventure in Colorado next year!

Located just 15 minutes from Albuquerque is the San Pedro Creek Preserve,  home to probably 40 wild horses.  The New Mexico Horse Project has been the over seer for the wild horses.  The pictures taken 6/2010 show at least 6 babies in the group.    Campbell Ranch, the owner of the several thousand acres has been kind enough to allow the wild horses to roam wild and undisturbed for several years.

Seeing wild horses grazing is just one of the benefits of living in the East Mountains! The horses are left undisturbed except for occasional round ups to DNA and sometimes to remove a horse to prevent in breeding.   DNA taken from some of the herd prove their bloodlines can be traced to the original Mustangs that were brought over by the Spaniards many years ago.

Springtime brings new babies and it is always fun to see the new little ones!  This year we have a paint, a first for the horses here in San Pedro Creek!

Saturday June 19th found us at the top of the beautiful Sandia Mountains on the 10 K Ride.  Starting at 10,000 feet this trail takes you to the ski area and the High Finance Restaurant and has some amazing views!    About a 5 mile ride;  it can be steep and rocky on some parts but mostly cool and beautiful!  We stopped beneath the  Restaurant and had a snack while the tourists enjoyed looking at the horses and clicking away!  For the brave of heart the trail takes you right to the edge and if so inclined you can  view all of Albuquerque and the amazing drop off!  Sometimes hang gliders can be seen riding the wind currents.

The view down one of the ski runs has the Ortiz Mountains as a back drop!   The Ortiz Mountains were at one time mined for gold and turquoise.  Situated on the Turquoise Trail is Golden, NM, so named for the gold mining in the Ortiz.  Rumor has it that mine shafts still exist and a few brave souls have descended to find skeletons and Indian artifacts.   Of course the mine is fenced and off limits to exploration.

Elaine by a small stream on the Sandia Mountain Trail

Elaine in the Valles Calderas

Elaine of the Turkey Road Kill fame was taken from us yesterday after losing her valiant fight with breast cancer.  She leaves a son of  5 years old.  We are all very saddened but consider ourselves lucky to have know such a bright and joyful person.  Elaine led us on many adventures; she was always looking for a new trail adventure for us to experience.  The Hagen Ghost Town ride was one of our rides that she found in a book  on rides in NM.  Some of our most amazing rides were with Elaine and her joyful spirit leading us into further adventure.   Our Blizzard Trail is  named after Elaine led the group on a ride and ended up in a blizzard because she wasn’t ready to go home.   Knowing that her life was going to be cut short at such a young age we now understand why she never wanted to end the ride.

We will miss you Elaine but want to wish you Happy Trails !  We’ll see you at the Big Roundup in the Sky!

Elaine leaves three horses needing new homes.  Selina a Peruvian Paso, Luna, a Paso fino and a quarter horse, Pumpkin.  All mares, they are fine horses, well trained and very good trail horses.  She also has several Alpacas that will be needing new homes.  If interested in knowing more please leave a comment and how to reach you.
