    Hot Topic – Barn Fans

    It’s hot. It’s humid. The air is not moving. Sound like a typical summer day? In an effort to make our equine companions more comfortable we often break out the fans this time of year. But, are the fans you are using actually much more dangerous than you have imagined? Very likely...

    Posts: The Backbone of Your Fence System

    Our horses' pastures are their homes. Pasture fencing needs to be strong enough to hold your horses. The posts are what hold the entire fencing system together. Without sturdy and strong posts, your fence cannot do its job and hold up long from daily use.

    Autumn colors, brisk temperatures, and long trail rides with friends and barn buddies. I have to admit---fall is my favorite time of year.

    Comfort for Your Horses in Pasture – Run-In Sheds and Shelters

    The cold winds are blowing and a storm is on the way. You’re at work or unable to get home until later that evening. Wrestling with the fact that your horse is outside in pasture, bit of a panic takes over.

  • Helmets - The Rules Have Changed

    Helmets - The Rules Have Changed

    I am a big proponent of helmet use every time, every ride for everyone. I believe that wearing a helmet should be the norm and love to see professionals and big-name-riders wearing helmets. I love it when advertisers select photos of riders wearing helmets, and hope to see more of it in the future. Effective January 2013 the FEI (the controlling authority for all international equestrian competitions in Dressage, Jumping, Eventing, Driving, Endurance, Vaulting and Reining) implemented a rule requiring helmet use in areas where they weren’t required before.

    ThuroBed Mattress System - The Bed that's Just Right for Your Deserving Horse

    Research shows that equine sleep deprivation can lead to all sorts of problems, including excessive drowsiness under saddle, joint pain, and environmental stress. If you find your horse holds a lot of tension or suffers from chronic joint pain, a good night’s sleep could be all he needs, but he won’t get that sleep if he doesn’t feel safe or comfortable lying down. Let’s face it---if your horse’s bed feels like an old lumpy mattress, he probably won’t lie down for long enough to move into a deep sleep. Stall mattresses can change all that.

    5 Tips to Make Barn Chores Easier

    Isn't it always the small things that make all the difference? When we are working in our barns or with our horses, the simplest of conveyances can make life so much easier. I was thinking about this and wanted to give you a short list of tips and products that will make the upcoming winter months more convenient. It is a busy month, so the list is not long, but it's a good one.
