    Equine Emergency Preparedness

    Equine Emergency Preparedness

    Equine Emergency Preparedness
    Equine emergency preparedness is so not a glamorous topic. And, it doesn't matter if you live in California with our fires and earthquakes (there was a 3.0 last night) or in the Midwest, or in a different country. Bad things will happen. No one wants to think about the disaster that may happen. No one wants to picture what will happen to their horse if they are unprepared. But as powerful as horses are, they can be extremely fragile in many situations. In past episodes, we've talked to veterinarians about medical emergencies. We talked to people at Large Animal Technical Rescue. On today's show, we talk to Julie Atwood about Equine Emergency Preparedness.
     
    It's a good thing that people like Julie Atwood of the HalterProject.org are out there. Julie thinks of all the things that could go haywire and develops lists and strategies to lessen their impact. The Halter Project began in 2013 as a grassroots effort to help people better prepare for both disasters and emergencies. I took this from the Halter Project's mission statement:
    FIRST RESPONDER ANIMAL AWARENESS & RESPONSE: HALTER Project provides support to first responders for training and equipment to assist animals in emergencies.
    INDIVIDUAL & COMMUNITY PREPAREDNESS: The HALTER Project is committed to inspiring and enabling individual and community preparedness for people and their animals.
    I encourage to check out the links and build a plan to protect your horse and other pets.
    Join Us on this Journey We want you to be a part of the show. Tell us about your horse. Share your challenges, triumphs, or just everyday items that make horse ownership unique. Create an audio file using the memo app on your phone. Or contact me and we'll set up a time to talk on Skype or phone. Perhaps what you have to share can help someone in THEIR horse journey.
    You are an enormous part of why we do a podcast. We really love getting your feedback. Please let us know your thoughts, ideas, and suggestions for the show. Email us at John@WhoaPodcast.com

    Horseback Archery

    Horseback Archery

    Horseback Archery When I think of horseback archery, I think of Robin Hood and Medieval Times. I didn't realize people were practicing it today. We did a podcast on Cowboy Mounted Shooting a few years ago, and that was fun. While riding through nearby Rancho Rio Equestrian Center, we noticed them setting up the arena for an event. I keep a watch for happenings here because it is one of my favorite stables. We can ride right along the Kern River. But I hadn't heard of this.
    When I asked around, I discovered that clinicians, Elizabeth Tinnan and Heather Lomax, were holding a horseback archery and bridle-less riding clinic for about 10 students. I grabbed my portable recorder and began asking questions. Elizabeth Tinnan told me that horseback archery was growing fast in the US. There were two national organizations, including the Mounted Archery Association of the Americas, and many smaller clubs around the country. Elizabeth is from middle Tennessee and rides with the Chattahoochee Horse Archers at Tennessee Valley Archery. I had not realized that there was a group less than an hour away. Judy Osborne told me about the Poseidon Horse Archers who meet at Hidden Creek Ranch.
    Heather Lomax owns Hidden Creek Ranch and teaches bridle-less riding among other disciplines. She discovered mounted archery fit in nicely with this type of riding. It takes two hands to fire an arrow, so one needs a horse that knows how to carry a rider with little direction.
