NWNHC Productions has announced the first national competition to crown the top all-around women horse trainers in the United States and Canada. The American Horsewoman’s Challenge is a six-month contest to train a young horse for a cross-discipline competition to be held in October of 2014 in Oklahoma City. The competition combines the equestrian skills of Dressage, Ranch/Trail Versatility and Liberty. The top ten finishers split a purse worth $28,000.
Dan James of Double Dan Horsemanship and Smart Little Mustang make their run at one million dollars in cash and prizes at Mustang Million on September 17-21, 2013.
A rope halter can easily be one of the most versatile pieces of equipment that a cowboy owns, but only if used and tied correctly. Tying your rope halter incorrectly could result in a Houdini horse incident; one moment they’re quietly standing tied, the next, you turn your back for a short period of time and by the time you’ve turned back around they’ve disappeared, leaving the halter swinging from where the horse once stood.
In 2013, the Mustang Heritage Foundation will present an unparalleled level of competition in its Mustang program portfolio. One thousand Mustangs will be eligible for the inaugural Mustang Million event to be held in Fort Worth, Texas, in September.

Riding a spooky horse can be challenging and frustrating. You might be more patient with your spooky horse when you understand that horses have survived in the wild all these years because of their natural flight response.

A riding experience can bring out all of what being with horses so meaningful. By paying close attention to what a horse has to offer you, that time spent together can be an actual investment with a positive payoff better than any lottery could offer.
