A rider's view from our ride with Back Country Horsemen of North Dakota (BCHND) at Bar X Ranch in Medora, North Dakota
A Note from Tom Seay
I wanted to share new information on several topics: 

First, on cattle drives in Virginia: To make it easier to come to our home in Virginia, we have announced our Cattle Drive Weekends for next season and are expanding the days. So many folks drive a long distance, so we are expanding the extra days and activities without any increase in costs. You can join us earlier and stay later! Hook ups are still at no charge plus the full meals. More riding and individual attention. We will offer refunds for next season, under a new refund policy for cattle drives. This makes it safer for you to plan.  Best of all, as a small thank you for being a subscriber and being part of the Best of America by Horseback Family, you can call our office and hold a spot for next season at the old price through the end of the month! Call Lisa at 540-829-9555 and she can handle everything for you.
We have been helping, as much as we can, several wonderful opportunities within the horse community. Many of you traveled with us to The Valley of Peace Christian School over the years. We have supported the school and especially several students through high school. We never ask for donations or money to anyone, but many of you have helped these wonderful children (education is not free in Belize) and we are grateful to be in the company of generous people like you. I believe we are less than $750 away from the final payment to pay for these students' education through high school. It has been difficult at times, but it was well worth it. 

In Ohio, we also provided financial support to help a college student finish their agriculture college program when they had nowhere else to turn, paid a medical emergency bill for someone else who had no health insurance, and helped a family who experienced a family crisis beyond their control- good people who were forced into a temporary financial strain and just needed a hand.
This November, we are doing a show to help the Tallapoosa County Girls Ranch in Alabama this fall at no cost to them. It is shaping up to be an unforgettable ride and I hope you'll join us. In case anyone wonders, I never contribute to any cause unless 100% of the funds go to the cause. 

We never share the names of individuals as well, because it can be embarrassing or difficult to ask for help. We do whatever we can for anyone. Best of America by Horseback has never charged any administrative fees or hidden costs or expected repayment from programs or individuals we support. If you wish to help in any of our efforts, simply call Lisa in our office and she will talk to you.
The upcoming Kansas Chisholm Trail Ride Event next September 9-13, 2020 has just been announced.  Too early , you might be thinking. On the ride we did this past June for an upcoming multi-episode series for the television show, our rider list was filled within a week and we had a 91 person waiting list. People complained that they did not have enough notice, so we are announcing it now. We will limit the number of riders, supply the breakfast and dinner, parking, the ride, nightly campfire with music, cattle events in the rodeo arena each night, and plenty of instruction on learning to rope or work cattle. We will return to visit Old Cowtown in Wichita (which was a great highlight of the recent ride) and have more seminars and speakers. The price is lower for a first come, first served basis, at $100 deposit and $59 a month payment so anyone can go, but it will limit the ride to half the normal riders. The rider fee is discounted until September 1st, 2019 , where it will be almost double in price. (We feel our viewers and Best of America Family deserve the first shot at riding at special events.) Call Lisa in our office at 540-829-9555. The cut off will probably be next week, and after that it will be a waiting list.
You will see new rides in California, Kansas, North Carolina, the Badlands of North Dakota, and Wyoming as a result to emails from folks asking us to come to their area. If you wish to recommend a ride, please email me directly at and tell us who to contact at a ranch or facility with name and number. We will do everything we can to make it happen. This past week alone, we have had four requests for a cruise during the winter months, so we are studying the possibilities of places to ride in the islands.

I truly enjoy making calls every day to our birthday list. It gives me direct feedback on places to ride. More importantly, it gives me an opportunity to talk with you. I want to be informed of the health of you and your family, where you are riding and places to ride. I give my personal email, which comes directly to me and I answer each email. However, sometimes the emails response is a day or so, but the birthday calls are daily. If you change your number, please let me know via email or by calling our office. Please call Lisa in our office to add friends and family members, as I welcome calling them as well. It is a highlight of my day each day and I welcome it so much. Even if we have not seen you on a ride for a long time or if we have never met, I will call.

As always, you can contact me direct at my personal email:    Lisa in our office can be reached at 540-829-9555 for any questions or if we can help you or your community in any way.

Adventure or Obedience
by Carole Herder

Psychologist Solomon Asch called his experiment a 'vision test.' Of the eight men in the room at Pennsylvania's Swarthmore College, only one was the real test subject. The others were told precisely how to answer the test questions. The subject believed the others were also involved as testing participants and remained unaware of the ruse. This is a famous experiment, used to study conformity in groups. Overall, 50 students were used.

The 'vision study' participants were shown a series of lines and asked which ones were the same. The real participant did not know that the others were instructed to answer the question incorrectly. Even though the answer was wrong, 75% of the test subjects conformed to that group answer at least once.

There are two main reasons for going along with a group answer. Firstly, people seem to want to fit in and fear to appear different, standing out or being ridiculed. Secondly, a person may believe that the group knows more about something or understands it better than they do. They don't trust their own conclusions when the group is saying something different. It takes courage to be true to your own beliefs and stand up for what you know is right. It takes courage to do something different with your horse when everyone else in your barn is doing the same thing. There is a lot of pressure to stay the same as the group. 

“Opt-in”, or “Opinions"
Today, Google is the most potent overall influencer. It can influence our purchasing habits, our healthcare protocols, and even our voting choices. Sure, it can play a valuable role in helping to make choices and channeling our behavior, but we should always know that investigation into the real facts might uncover something completely different. This means it's entirely our own responsibility to learn and find what really resonates with us – that we know from a deep place in our hearts to be true. Consider the numerous requests to opt-in, provide your contact details, and receive marketing or educational information. 'Opt-in' is a shortened version of the word 'opinion.' Opinion on the internet is rampant, contagious, and often disguised as fact.
Rabbit Hole Full of Opinions
So much of our information about horses is dogmatic. Horses do this, and they don't do that. Quarter horses' feet are this way. Thoroughbreds are that way. My Grandpa always did this or that. You must nail metal into horses' feet because it protects them. You must hammer metal into their feet because we've forever done it.

Remember when we relied on the guy with the metal forge for all our hoof information? Much has changed, and even though the internet offers rabbit hole reams of education, there's just as much opinion in the guise of fact. I remember when there was no information about barefoot horses. Lack of knowledge and experience kept us doing the same thing we always have done. It kept us from making the transition we knew to be healthier, natural, holistic, and ultimately more cost-effective. I was like the test subject in the experiment. I'd cringe when the farrier came to do the deed, but I went along with it anyway. This has changed.

We Are the Trail Blazers
The positive and most valued aspect of making a choice about Hoof Boots is Social Proof. Here, you can absolutely derive information from the internet. The thing is, you must use your analytical mind to sift through the opinion. Is it marketing material – opinion disguised as fact? An excellent way to verify is through social media. When there are large amounts of third-party postings, you might be on to something. Look at whether the postings are individually generated or following a 'me-too' discussion. Are they merely agreeing with each other, or are they personally inspired to share their experience?
When a member of the horse community is moved to tell their story, they have nothing to gain but to voice their experience and offer a guide for fellow horse owners. Stories are different from advice. Stories are about involvement and practice. You can sift through a story to find the facts. What really happened? Use your internal filters when you see a posting about Hoof Boots on Instagram or Facebook, and then be comforted and supported by others to make your decisions. Booting barefoot horses is the most forward evolution we've experienced in our industry in our time. We are the trailblazers changing the world, and luckily, we're no longer alone. We're no longer like that conforming test subject, going along with the group and shoeing our horses or standing up for our beliefs and being ridiculed. We can now take comfort in our community. The benefits of barefoot horses and Cavallo Hoof Boots are transparently told by many. And don't worry, you can't get it wrong. Your community hasn't been instructed to deceive you. This isn't an experiment. Check it out. Here at Cavallo, we appreciatively receive great stories every day. Choosing Cavallo is about providing ease, comfort, and protection for your horse for years to come.
Here's a Real Story
“These boots are the BOMB!!!! My 30-year-old retired show horse was having trouble keeping shoes on, so my farrier and I decided to take them off and let him go barefoot. Unfortunately, he quickly became very sore and could barely walk out to the pasture. My farrier suggested I try the Cavallo Boots, as he had a client who used them with great success. I immediately ordered a pair and they arrived two days later. The boots were incredibly easy to slip on and fasten.... but the real test....1. Will they stay on? 2. Will they rub? The answer to 1. is YES!!! The answer to 2. is NO!!! My old boy walked out without any soreness, and once in the pasture he proceeded to trot, then gallop around like he was a ten again... this after barely being able to walk. He has worn his Cavallo's 24/7 for the last two months and he has yet to lose them or get a rub, even during a few crazy runs with his pasture mates. My farrier says his feet are looking much better and the Cavallo Boots are working out great!!! I can't say enough about these durable, well constructed boots and would highly recommend them to anyone (My farrier did quietly say they could put him out of business if everyone caught on to these). Once again, they are the BOMB!!!”

Loves Knows No Bounds
Written for Steve and Shirley Vicchitto 
By Harold Roy Miller 

When I first learned about Shirley Vicchitto and her husband Steve, 
it was a heart-wrenching story that I could scarcely believe. 
These folks were put through the wringer of pain, grief and despair, 
but somehow they came out intact, thanks to God's infinite care. 

Shirley had always been crazy about horses, even as a little girl 
and wanted to be near them because they were the center of her world. 
So she volunteered to muck stalls, groom or feed the daily hay 
just so she could take a ride when her jobs were done each day.

She chose to work over continuing school, since her love for horses 
consumed her young life so much more than any college courses. 
She bought a National Show Horse that she was thrilled to train, 
a pretty chestnut named Zarina with a flaxen tail and mane. 

Shirley loved that noble mare who soon became her best friend 
but little did either one of them know that that their joy was about to end. 
One day a truck muffler backfired as they was taking a trail ride 
and Shirley jumped off and broke her back as the young horse spooked and shied. 

With a spinal fuse and a body cast, her equine dreams fell apart. 
She was forced to sell her beloved mare and this broke the young lady's heart. 
She was horseless for a year and a half but to her it seemed more like ten, 
and because of the accident she wasn't sure she'd ever ride again. 

Then she met Steve and they got hitched and Shirley tried her best to hide 
the fact that she was still horse crazy and she really wanted to ride. 
When the doctor told her she could ride again she was so happy to hear it 
that she went right out and bought a barrel racer with lots of speed and spirit. 

When she climbed back into the saddle again she was totally elated 
but sadly for Shirley, this equine acquisition would also be ill fated. 
While riding down the trail one day some motorcycles shot past her 
and what followed out there on the trail was an absolute disaster. 

Shirley was badly injured again. Her body was one big contusion 
and the most unfortunate part of it was she'd broken her spinal fusion. 
Enduring the pain was bad enough, but what turned her blue skies gray 
was that while she was recuperating, her horse was given away. 

The Vichittos moved to a farm in Canada, raised crops, horses and show pups, 
but their life now seemed to be plagued with a lot more downs than ups. 
Shirley was pregnant and her bad back made walking a major chore 
so she had another spinal fusion when she could stand the pain no more. 

The times were hard for Shirley and she felt her life was on the skids 
when she was told to give up horses and not to have any more kids. 
The family moved back to Connecticut and sold their Canadian farm, 
then a terrible misfortune happened; the woman again came to harm. 

Shirley had an automobile accident that broke her back again. 
She was thrust back into the battle of pain that it seemed she couldn't win. 
The diagnosis was one in a thousand that her back would ever heal 
but with great faith she had another surgery as they prayed for God's will. 

The LORD came through. Shirley walked again, though the pain was always there, 
but by now affliction was something this stalwart woman had learned to bear. 
Their kids grew up and moved away and they entered the grandparent phase. 
They continued to raise their Shelties and it seemed like happier days. 

Although Shirley couldn't ride horses anymore, she could raise Sheltie pups. 
She chose good bloodlines and some of them won grand champion cups. 
They were enjoying their life of raising dogs and traveling to the show rings 
but dark clouds of trouble were around the corner, just waiting in the wings. 

Returning from the Nationals, they stopped overnight in the Show Me state. 
When Shirley called home to check on things, she had another brush with fate. 
She happened to touch an ungrounded freezer and had a horrifying surprise. 
Shirley got electrocuted and her whole life flashed before her eyes. 

She lost her memory, had multiple strokes and was bedridden again. 
Shirley felt totally useless as her whole world begin its downward spin. 
She was miserable and severely depressed; many times she hurt and cried. 
But through all this her loyal husband stayed right there by her side. 

The heavy medication she was on kept her in a foggy drug-induced state 
and as a result of being so sluggish, she naturally put on some weight. 
She had to relearn everything. It was such a difficult time in her life, 
but resilient Shirley slowly recovered and Steve regained his wife. 

For seven years of Shirley's life she had been out of the main stream 
but way down deep inside her heart she still clung to her horse dream. 
Yearning to be in the saddle again, she decided it was now or never 
so they bought a user-friendly Foxtrotter to start their riding endeavor. 

Shirley is back in the saddle again and their life has a much brighter glow. 
In fact, she's preparing to ride her horse Dusty in an upcoming equine show. 
This family suffered anguish and heartache through some pretty rough years 
and their long road to happiness was paved with prayer, love and tears. 

What doesn't kill you will make you stronger, a lot of folks believe 
and this evidence is overwhelming in the trials of Shirley and Steve. 
The moral of this story is that life will always have ups and downs, 
but God above will see you through because True Love knows no bounds. 

Until the end of August, book next year's Cattle Drive Weekend at the old price!

Daniel Boone Days Celebration

Frontiersman Daniel Boone and his family lived and worked within a mile of what is now known as Andora Farm during the Cherokee Indian Wars, hauling tobacco to neighboring ports. We celebrate this each fall with Daniel Boone Days, a weekend where folks can explore the farm and learn about colonial Virginia by interacting with local historians, craftspeople, and artisans.

Attractions include:
wagon rides to the living history Mountain Man encampment, a Native American historian, educational booths where you can see colonial craft-folk in action, such as a blacksmith, quilters, spinners and weavers, candle making, soap making, pottery, and more. Many of these booths will even have one-of-a-kind items for purchase.

Tom's Quick Tip: Handling the Heat
As we are in the height of the riding season, the weather and high heat are major concerns. Most folks forget they spend so much time in air conditioned homes and cars that they forget to significantly increase the amount of water they drink. I heard a doctor say that people should consume up to a bottle of water an hour in high heat. That may be high, but it is better to drink more than less. Your headache or ill feelings may be a direct result of low water intake, so be safe an consume more. 

Also, as we travel, remember we are basically hauling our horses in a metal container while we sit in an air conditioned truck. Make sure the windows are open and vents open to force air to keep your horses cool.  

Does Your Horse Respect You?
by Nancy Spoolstra, DVM
In  Part One  and  Part Two  of this series, I described how I learned the hard way about the need for ground work to develop relationship and respect between my horse and me. At least, I had figured it out with my Arabian, Kadeen, but I had to have a blunt reminder to address it with my new horse, Finn. At the end of Part Two, I described our challenging trip to a local park, and Finn’s difficulty with going through any water. He was belligerent and he demonstrated his stress and lack of trust and respect by rearing about 6-8 inches off the ground. That got my attention…
The next day after our not-so-enjoyable ride in the park, I tacked up Finn and rode around my dry lot. Although I knew we had a respect/relationship issue, it still wasn’t the first thing on my agenda to use my round pen. As usual, our ride in his familiar area, asking for familiar commands went just fine. He did everything I asked, with smooth transitions which he often executed by voice command only. As we completed our workout, I spied the round pen panel with the broken bottom lying outside the round pen. I decided it would be a good source of “pressure” to ask him to cross the panel. But I was smart enough not to attempt it from the saddle.

I dismounted and, pulling the reins over his head, I asked him to cross the panel with me leading him. This is the only way we had managed to cross the water at the park the day before. He went over it twice…. and when I asked one more time, he balked. And then the games began…
I traded his bridle for a halter and lunge rope, and started to try and lunge him over the obstacle. He would have none of it, and in relatively short order his solution was to try and drag me around the dry lot. He was extremely obstinate. And so I finagled him into the round pen and pulled the offensive panel inside the round pen as well. When I say “finagled” I mean it…. He wouldn’t go into the round pen (he’s a smart guy!) and I actually separated two panels and was able to get him in. TWO HOURS LATER he was convinced to walk nicely over the panel. But that was not before totally “giving me the hoof”. He would canter around me in a circle, heaving and sweating and wanting to stop on his own, but completely unwilling to respond to my voice command to “walk”. His ears would flicker, but he never slowed a beat. So I would respond to his “deafness” by making him go faster. Over and over we repeated this exercise. Finally, he had enough and he complied. He would walk, trot, canter, and whoa on command. He walked nicely over the panel. We were both exhausted.

The next day, I put his halter on, grabbed the lunge rope and whip, and headed for the round pen. He balked again at even going in. I managed to get him through the door of the round pen, and once again the games began. It started off much as it had the day before. I started off seeing how much compliance I would get on just regular lunging. Not much. He wouldn’t respond to voice commands. He would periodically throw a fit and rapidly reverse on his own, leaving the lunge rope looped over his neck in an awkward way. I’d cut him off and turn him again. Eventually he started to wear out, and finally he’d comply with my request to walk over the panel. But immediately after doing something I wanted him to do, he’d throw another tantrum and reverse on his own again. So off we’d go in another 10-15 minute cantering session before I’d give him the option of trying again. I’d get compliance going clockwise but not counterclockwise. On and on it went, for another two hours the second day, until he quit fighting and calmly did as I asked. I had been foolish and slipped on my boots without socks on this second day, and after 256,000 revolutions around the round pen, I had worn a nice sore on my ankles. Once again, we were both exhausted. Stay tuned for Day 3…
This is part three of the five part series Does Your Horse Respect You? You can read more on Nancy's blog here .
