A Note from Tom Seay
We have all heard stories or seen western movies about the famous cattle drives and the great Chisholm Trail. Well, we just returned this week from Kansas where we rode parts of this very trail. This will be seen in four upcoming episodes of the weekly television show, Best of America by Horseback, as seen on RFD-TV and the Cowboy Channel plus our  YouTube Channel .

In the late 1800s, cattle prices were low in Texas but triple money further north in Kansas, such as Wichita or Abilene. Therefore, trails were made and cattle were driven across America by the countless thousands into the millions.  Stories about the cowboys and cattle drives seemed to become the backbone of most western movies.

Our ride spanned several towns and required the efforts of many to come together. Karen Mattos of Best of America, in particular, worked many months to organize this event. I thought I was a stickler for details but she wins the prize to make this ride such a success for our riders.

Our visit to the trail began in Caldwell, Kansas and traveled through Wellington and on to Mayfield and Clearwater where we spent much of our time on the trail. We rode the exact route. However, with that many cattle grazing and being driven north, the 'trail' was often miles wide. Today, we welcomed riding this trail on ranch land and dirt roads without seeing hardly any traffic. My friend, Deputy Sam Wylie, worked constantly for months to lay our the trail in every detail but was forced to make many changes due to the weather. This is a man that any of us would ride with anywhere and know he is a true cowboy and a professional outdoorsman. He adapted to changes up to the day we rode. If I was not certain, he was riding the cattle drives a hundred years ago and just dropped back in to our lives to lead the way. A true gentleman and a real cowboy.
The City of Caldwell welcomed us and honored our riders with a fine banquet dinner, historical guest speakers, and a western sideshow of saloon gals as well as an old fashioned gun fight in the street. The local folks welcomed our riders through the ride in town and could not have been more supportive and friendly.
When we reached Wellington, the city had a mowed area for our rigs and horses beside the lake, and in Mayfield, we had our banquet at The Haymaker Lodge, a new facility that hosts community events, weddings, and visiting cowboys and cowgirls like our group. Del Shields entertained each night but put on a larger show there. It was perfect.

Rain hardly ever affects our rides but Kansas and Oklahoma had been hit hard with tornadoes and flooding. Many roads were closed but we made our way to Clearwater to the Saddle Club rodeo grounds. It was easier to park our rigs and ride each day from there in various directions to see more of the trail and hear speakers about the trail including the great grandson of an actual rider of the Chisholm Trail.

I was so impressed with Ryan Karrick and his family, members of the Saddle Club, and Lonnie Stieben of Clearwater that we will return to Kansas next year. I have never met more friendly and supportive people anywhere on our trail rides over the years. They are the kind of people that feel as if they are family. While we were worried about the huge amount of rain before we arrived, they left nothing to chance, including vans to transport people to banquets, individual assistance with parking, tractors ready if anyone got stuck, and a fine Sunday morning pancake and sausage gravy breakfast. Lonnie and Ryan made sure we were able to take our riders and horses to a nearby nursing home to visit and also arranged for the famous line of Clydesdales and hitch wagon from Cowskin Creek Farms to lead the parade and riders through their town. Is there any question why we will return to this community and ride again on the Chisholm Trail? 

On Sunday, Sam, Karen, Pat and I loaded our horses along with the other riders and traveled by vans and large stock rigs to Wichita. The trip was arranged by Mike Andre, who is just completing the new Wichita Union Stockyard Event Center on the site of the original stockyards. We went to Old Cowtown, a must visit location for anyone. We rode our horses in this small town, completely rebuilt to the 1800's era of the cattle drives. Original building rebuilt or relocated on site. A working saloon, blacksmith shop, general store, and so many original buildings. Our riders and guests were overwhelmed and I did not want to leave. This town really took you back in time as the real deal, not a make-believe set of building fronts. We will return here again for sure.

Some rides are historical on a location, some are exploring new adventures and rides like we experienced with Sam, Ryan, and Lonnie are living the western history. I am going back with all the excitement and pleasure of any ride I have ever done.
This time, for our Chisholm Trail ride in 2020, we will add cattle to the ride, rodeo events each night in the arena such as roping, barrel racing, a cattle sorting, and maybe a good old fashioned western pleasure horse show one evening. Let's top it off with Del Shields singing his true western cowboy music each night. Did I mention real chuck wagon cooking over campfires each evening and real cowboy perked coffee each morning? I cannot wait to return and I want you to go with me. It looks like the ride will be scheduled in the first week of September, but has not been confirmed. The price will be as low as possible; however, we will have to limit the number to no more than 100 riders. We will have more details soon. 

Lisa in our office at 540-829-9555 will hold spots for the September 2020 Chisholm Trail for those that are interested. Join me on this new adventure and ride back into history with me.

Does Your Horse Respect You?
by Nancy Spoolstra, DVM
In  Part One,  I described my “A-ha!” moment when I realized what my young trainer had been trying to tell me all along…. I did not have the respect and the relationship with my gray Arabian, Kadeen, that I needed to be successful. Once I figured that out and “raised the bar” things really started moving in the right direction. And truthfully, “raising the bar” had a lot to do with GROUND WORK, and, also truthfully, I DON’T LIKE GROUNDWORK!
I was always the one who would rather just hop on and ride out whatever my potentially recalcitrant mount would throw at me. Lunging? That was for sissies… but I dutifully attended clinics and expos and spent a whole weekend watching  Clinton Anderson  work his magic. I even bought the DVD package, and I have watched it more than once. I need to watch it again, because Finn, my new guy, is in dire need of some groundwork.

Finn is a 7 year old, half-Arabian half-QH/Thoroughbred gelding. He was bred to be a hunter jumper show horse. He’s big and bay and beautiful and really wants to be your best friend. That is, however, until you ask him to walk in a little mud or, even worse, actually cross some water! My young trainer had put almost a year on him before she casually suggested I ride him. The rest is history and he came home to hang out with Kadeen late last summer.

I rode him sporadically over the winter until about a month ago. Mostly that riding was in my trainer’s indoor arena or in my dry lot, with once or twice doing a brief road trip around my neighborhood. He was sure the trash cans in my neighbor’s driveway were going to devour him.

So, given how little I had exposed him to, it probably wasn’t the best move to haul him to the local park for a trail ride. As soon as he was pushed to try something he didn’t want to, he threw a tantrum. And while I can ride just about anything that a horse can do with his feet on the ground, I’m not too keen on front feet leaving the ground, even if it was only 6-8 inches. We did manage to cross tiny little creeks when I was leading him so he could see me, since we didn’t have the relationship we needed for him to be confident with me on his back.

One of the gals I was riding with is an endurance rider and a good horsewoman, and she very tactfully suggested that respect and relationship were at the root of our problem. I had figured this out with Kadeen, but I guess I was hoping some Fairy Godmother would magically make that happen with Finn, without having to do all the work. Sigh… I guess not.

One of the other skills I had worked so hard to achieve with Kadeen was to relax in inverse proportion to his degree of anxiety. In other words, the more he wound up, the more I needed to relax. How hard is that? Nearly impossible in some cases. I knew in my head that me getting anxious was only making his anxiety worse, but how to shut that off? I just kept working on my relationship and communication with Kadeen, and gradually we came to trust each other more and more. The more I had confidence in my ability to “talk him off the cliff” the more I could relax and do exactly that. And when I trusted my ability to do that, my body didn’t wind up and send hyper anxiety signals through my aids and into my horse!

So imagine my frustration when Finn started throwing his little hissy fit and rearing ever-so-slightly off the ground, and how did I respond? By winding up myself. Once again, a huge red flag that our relationship was not where it needed to be. In Part Three, I will tell you how it started to unfold….

Laminitis - Why My Horse?
by Carole Herder

Let’s Talk Feet

Why does one horse eat a barrel of grain and colic or develop laminitis , while another does not? It could be just the ‘luck of the draw’. It could be because the latter horse’s biological systems are not functioning optimally. His immune system is taxed. His microbiome is over-run with toxins and bad bacteria (or, alternatively, not enough good bacteria). There is evidence that domestic horses have a less diverse community of bacteria in their guts to combat disease. They are not exposed to a varietal host of micro-organisms that can build immunity. A plethora of reasons may instigate and cause this gorging of grain to be the final act that pushes your horse over into dis-ease. He could be experiencing too much stress as a result of his lifestyle. Perhaps he is suffering lack of contact with a herd, lack of movement or some other unnatural state in his environment. There are a multitude of causes for health depletion in your horse. The thing is, if your horse’s health is compromised, he is susceptible to a bout of Laminitis. One thing we know for sure, is that properly trimmed, well functioning, balanced hoofs go a long way towards prevention and the ability for your horse to combat and overthrow the effects of less-than-optimal conditions.

Imagine Your Own Finger Nail
Imagine the tip of your finger nail being pulled away from your finger. The tissue between your finger and finger nail stretches apart with excruciating pain until the nail separates. You either bleed openly or under the nail itself. This is a painful injury, subject to infection and requiring immediate attention. Now, if your nail was cropped regularly to be symmetrical and close to your finger tip and if your nail had a strong integral and nutritional composition, it would be difficult to separate it from its structure. Your finger would remain strong and intact even with force being exerted upon it. The digit is a cohesive unit and its’ protective layer would not be undermined to weaken the integrity of the whole. The parts would support each other. Perhaps you would feel pressure or discomfort, but your nail would not rip away.
In the case of laminitis, torque to an imbalanced, uncared-for and improperly trimmed hoof can pull the hoof wall away from the hoof capsule to result in founder. Conversely, balanced and properly trimmed, well-nourished feet will prevent this. Keeping your horse away from an overabundance of internal stresses, chemicals and toxins is imperative to prevention. This goes for common treatments like wormers. It is important not to over burden the system by over-worming or over-vaccinating your horse. Remember, less is very often best. The healthy body’s natural tendency is to heal and restore.

There are some fundamental things you must understand for prevention of disease. Practicing a holistic healing approach requires an understanding of horses in nature. Remember that they are wild animals who live outdoors. Even though we love them like members of our families, they are not our pets. They should not be pampered in ways that are not natural for them. By respecting the supremacy of nature and its healing principles along with an understanding of the animal we are dealing with, we can develop a plan of treatment that is appropriate to the condition. Laminitis is not an illness that must be fixed, but rather a correction and a lifestyle modification that can be adapted for long-term health. For example, contrary to a traditional recommendation for stall confinement, your horse will more likely thrive with 24/7 turnout. Remember that in a wild herd environment, horses will move around 10 miles a day on rough terrain. This naturally trims and stimulates their hoofs. Providing adequate movement options is essential for your horse’s health and well-being. 

Compensate for Domesticity
Choosing a trimmer who can emulate or compensate for domesticity is a great benefit. This person should be someone you feel comfortable with, who encourages you to ask and provides good explanations to your questions. This person allows you the space and leniency to learn; to understand and to be a part of what she is doing to your horse’s hoofs. If not, move on. Trimming is a flourishing vocation and a career choice for many talented well-skilled people, who are learning new and less-damaging or invasive techniques that naturally benefit your horse. You now have options.
To start the treatment, we must provide support to the coffin bone and ease for the stretching laminae. The toes may be brought back, even to the inside of the stretched white line. Any flares, stresses, imbalances or irregularities should be addressed. Again, less is best, because we do not want to compromise support by removing too much sole provision, especially at the toe. Your trimmer should proceed cautiously, trimming a little bit at frequent intervals, allowing rest and convalescence between trims and offering you an understanding of the process. Cavallo Hoof Boots are an absolute must during this process, not only to provide support and protection, but to embrace Cavallo’s therapeutic insoles, any potential poultice or cooling treatment and to ultimately help facilitate the comfort and benefit of increased movement.

Hoof hydration may be indicated to help promote suppleness, prevent cracking and increase the flex required for hoof mechanism. As illness prevention, nature’s wisdom provides. For example - outside of a domestic environment where horses are offered water in buckets; they will stand in a river or waterhole when they are thirsty, thus hydrating their hoofs at the same time. When increased hoof hydration is required, simply tape over the drainage holes and fill your Cavallo Hoof Boots with water. This is a great procedure to use prior to trimming also, as it offers your trimmer much softer and more malleable hoofs to work with for precise efficiency.

High quality vitamins, minerals and free choice salt should be offered. Make sure plenty of fresh clean water is available. You may wish to increase Vitamin C intake during this time to help heal and build immunity. There are several good supplements and nutritional building blocks you can deploy with the advice of your veterinarian. You must remain flexible and respond to changes quickly. Also, be willing to modify High quality vitamins, minerals and free choice salt should be offered. Make sure plenty of fresh clean water is available. You may wish to increase Vitamin C intake during this time to help heal and build immunity. There are several good supplements and nutritional building blocks you can deploy with the advice of your veterinarian. You must remain flexible and respond to changes quickly. Also, be willing to modify the environment. We recommend a harder standing surface to act as a counter-effect, which stimulates hoof mechanism and blood circulation. But, when your horse is very sore, a soft bedded area is more appropriate for him to recline and rest those aching feet. When rehabilitation is again underway, a tougher surface can help regain strength. Cavallo offers a variety of insoles (hoof boot pads) , which are perfect for this transitioning and required flexibility. Circulation is imperative to the distribution of nutrients throughout the hoof and your horse’s entire system. Healthy blood flow aids in prevention and facilitates healing. Alternatively, limiting blood flow will lead to degeneration. The idea is to get your horse comfortably moving as quickly as possible. Cavallo Hoof Boots go a long way to facilitate your efforts and help your horse regain his proper footing. Secure, confident and comfortable, your horse can carry on being a horse with proper hoof protection.
Hook Up Dangers
by Tom Seay

All of us have the routine of hooking up our trailers but I wanted to share with you my deep concern for a potential deadly danger of which many, if not most, drivers and riders do not realize.

Recently, we were in Kansas during a week of rain. We had to move over 40 horse trailers almost every day and I became alarmed to watch how so many people hook up their trailers. A majority of the folks I saw would stand directly behind the truck to give directions and guidance to the truck driver. A little mud on the brake pedal or a slip of the foot could let the truck back into the trailer and would pin the person directing between the truck and trailer. If the tailgate is down, there is little room left and major injury is quite possible.
Here is what we do when we hook up:  

First, no one is allowed between the truck and trailer.   

Second, only one person gives directions . I hate it when there are two or three people that are trying to help back up a trailer to a campsite or to hook up. There will be at least three or four opinions and people yelling directions. This is too confusing and leaves room for error. Therefore, choose the one giving directions and politely announce to that person in front of everyone that you will be listening and watching that person only.  

Third, have a clear set of directions . The arm waving to "keep coming back" or to "back up more" is dangerous. Simply hold up both hands where the driver can easily see the distance between the hands. In other words, if they need to come back three feet more, hold your hands three feet apart. As they back up slowly, close the gap between the hands to two feet or one or the inches left until your hands close as you are over the ball. This way, there is no voice needed or confusion. In short, only use sign language.

Another tip: When you are hooking up, do not be distracted by conversation. Put the trailer down on the ball and do not stop your work until the hitch is locked and the chains are on. When someone walks up and tells you did a good job, that is the time you may forget to lock the ball. Finish the job with the ball locked and the trailer plugged in. 

Two other suggestions: After you hook up, have someone watch to make sure your brakes and signals work. It is easy and it adds to a great deal of assurance that all is well. The other suggestion (and I know I will get mail on this one from trailer dealers) is to keep loosely connected zip ties around your trailer plug cord. When I hook up, I do not trust the plug latch. I like to snug up a zip tie around the cord to ensure it is really secured to the plug outlet. I put enough ties to cover all the expected hook ups on any given trip. Twice during the last couple of years, I have had a trailer cord become unplugged on a bumpy road. This ensures it will not come out until you cut the zip tie off. Going down a mountain without brakes and hauling tons of weight behind you can ruin your day. Be careful and safe.

One final note: Do not hook your safety brake line into the chain. Hook it into the truck chain ring. If you forget, there are police officers that love to write tickets on that one. Hook the emergency brake clip into the truck ring!

Some of us are getting older. Throw in to the back of your truck a small three step stool or ladder. It sure makes it easier to get in and out of the truck bed.

Wayne and Suzie Wilson

We are Wayne and Suzie Wilson, and we are having the time of our lives!! 

About ten years ago, we had one of those 'Bucket List' conversations, and since my husband is a retired geophysicist, we've lived all over the world and have been able to travel to many interesting and exotic places. Wayne said that he thought he had been everywhere he really wanted to go and asked me what was on my list, and I said that I'd always dreamed of having a horse and trail riding! I thought that we were too old and it was too late, but he said that he'd give it a go, and we were off to the races!! He took riding lessons and we bought a couple horses without having so much as a curry comb! 

That was the beginning of an adventure that has taken us all over the country. We have two gorgeous Tennessee Walkers, and they love to travel and see new places just like we do. We bought a live-aboard horse trailer and a truck to pull it and all the 'stuff' that is necessary when you have horses. 

We saw 'Best of America by Horse Back' on T.V. and decided to give them a try, so joined up for the 'Tribute to the Trail Rider' that was held at Cleveland's Emerald Necklace park system in Ohio. Our second trip was a cruise to the Western Caribbean to ride on the beach on Cayman Island, which was an amazing adventure. We joined in for the ride at the Milky Way Farm in Pulaski, Tennessee. Then we rode with Tom at the Florida Sheriffs Boys Ranch in Live Oak, Florida, and this last February we rode at the Suwannee River Music Park. While in Florida, we spent 40 days, stayed at 5 different horse camps, and rode 125 miles! All of Tom's rides are wonderful, and we join in with BOABH whenever we can include it on our travels. 

We live in Texas in the winter and spend the summers in Michigan at Wayne's family farm where we can ride on our own property all summer. It's too hot in Texas!! We've ridden all over Michigan, at the Hoosier National Forest in Indiana, at Shawnee National Forest in Illinois, on a huge ranch in Western Kansas, on the battlefields of Gettysburg Pennsylvania, in the mountains and deserts of Arizona, and in Big Bend National Park on the Rio Grande in Texas, and, of course, all over Michigan and Texas. We have met and ridden with some wonderful horse people and have formed lasting friendships... there's something about 'horse' people that brings them together regardless of age or gender. Wayne is usually the only guy that rides with our group in Texas!! 

We are both in our 70s and bought a new horse a couple years ago. Wayne asked the dealer why the owner was selling the horse, and he said that the man thought he was too old to ride. When we asked how old he was the dealer told him he was 68 years old, Wayne said, "Well, I'm 73 and I'm going strong!!" Our goal is to ride up into our 80s, and it's keeping us young! 

Thanks, Tom, for opening up a new world to us... we are so grateful!!
