10 Rider Attributes and Dedication by Al Dunning
A long list of credentials make a horse seem successful in reined- cow-horse competition—brains, brawn, temperament, athleticism and God-given talent, and the list goes on.

18 Your Hands…To The Horse’s Head, To The Horse’s Feet by David Slipka
Often I witness this scenario: People make a team-roping run and one of the ropers misses. The roper rides out of the arena, whips his horse, pulling and jerking him in a circle.

20 -Never Judge A Book By It’s Cover by Monty Bruce
I just recently did a cow horse clinic in northern Nebraska, and I love doing clinics with real working cowboys.

22 Horse Deals – Quality of Canter by Dan Steers
We are going to work on how you can improve the quality of canter with a simple leg yield serpentine on the canter circle exercise.

26 Consistency Is The Key by Martha Josey
Asking a horse to move in a direction or to stop is all part of training or preparing for the event you wish to compete in. Being aware of your body and hands at all times during any ride, is a very important habit even when it’s not a specific training session.

30 Do You Have These Three Critical Elements? by Barbra Schulte
Through my years of riding, showing and coaching, I have come to know that -success on your horse has 3 Must Haves. They’re kind of like big buckets!

34 Safe Equine Handling by Robert M. Miller, DVM
One of my more recent books on horsemanship is Handling the Equine Patient. I wrote it for veterinary students and for students of veterinary technology (the veterinary nursing profession).

36 Equine Law – Half Lease – Whole -Problem by Julie I. Fershtman
The words “half lease” seem unique to the horse industry. In law school, this lawyer -never heard the phrase mentioned, and the authoritative -legal dictionary, Black’s Law Dictionary, nowhere mentions it.

48 Ask Your Horse…I -Guarantee He’ll Be There For You! by Doug Lindgren
Have you ever been in a situation where you were in new or unfamiliar territory?

52 On-the-Road Care by Craig Cameron
Caring for your horse while traveling is equally as important as caring for him at home, and maybe more so.

54 Conformation Class Showmanship by Mike Major
In the ranch-versatility world, the halter conformation class has the same points possible as the reining or cutting.

58 The Training Scale by Clinton Anderson
In order to be a great horseman, you have to learn how to apply pressure effectively. While helping others learn how to effectively communicate with their horses, I generally come across two types of horse people.

60 Safety & Confidence on the Trail by Lynn Palm
In previous articles we have reviewed important steps to prepare for training on the trail, including reading the horse to recognize his inner energy level and working with him to release it.

62 Even Non-GMO Is Not Necessarily Safe by Juliet M. Getty, Ph.D.
Non-GMO. Do you know what it means? And is it better than GMO? It must be, right? Otherwise, it wouldn’t be displayed on food-labels as something to brag about.

66 Shoulder-Swing Exercise by Sandy Collier

In this exercise, whenever your horse’s hind end veers off course in the backup, instead of moving it back over, swing his shoulders over 90 degrees to re-establish the straight line before resuming backing-up.

68 Introducing The Blanket by Dick Pieper
When the horse is comfortable in the round pen, moving around freely and stopping and coming to me, I begin to sack him out with a blanket, rubbing it all over his body and letting him get used to the feel of being touched in a way that is unfamiliar to him.
