    The Importance of a New Veterinarian

    The Importance of a New Veterinarian

    The Importance of a New Veterinarian How important is a newly graduated veterinarian to an established practice?I worked as a animal care technician in the 1970s and was lucky to see a few new grads added to the practices I worked at. They always brought a new energy to the practice, not to mention new styles and techniques. The established doctors gave them the experience of working outside an academic environment in exchange for the latest in veterinary practice. It is a great deal for both sides.
    The Golden Triangle of people important to your horse’s welfare are your veterinarian, farrier, and trainer. It’s essential you choose each one of these with care and consideration. I look for an experienced and knowledgeable veterinarian. I also wanted someone who offers more than one line of treatment when available. Last, I want a vet who understands the age and value of our horses and how we use‌ them, and adjust treatment options to fit our specific needs. Veterinary knowledge and diagnostic technology are advancing in leaps and bounds. Staying current with that knowledge not only helps your horse live a healthier life, but helps you when deciding on your horse’s care.
    The three-man practice at Bakersfield Large Animal Hospital is a well-rounded team of professionals. They are plain-spoken, easy to understand, and stay current on the latest innovations in veterinary medicine. Dr. Tolley, Dr. Gonzalez, and Dr. Ordonez possess all the outstanding qualities I believe make for a good veterinarian.

    New Bakersfield College Rodeo Team Formed

    New Bakersfield College Rodeo Team Formed

    New Bakersfield College Rodeo Team Formed
    You'd think as big as an agricultural, beef-producing county as Kern is, there would be rodeos all the time. And, in reality, there are. We've got the Tehachapi Mountain Rodeo Association producing bull riding, youth, and PRCA rodeos. There's the Glenville Rodeo and the Sheriff's Posse Rodeo. We have a Bakersfield Youth Rodeo Club. But, with all that, there was no community college rodeo. That is until adjunct professor, Andrea Prise, formed the Bakersfield college Rodeo Team.
    If you've listened much to the podcast, you already know I am one of the least knowledgeable people when it comes to rodeo. But, I wanted to learn more, and I've attended many classes at Bakersfield College over the years (a story for another time). I tracked down Andrea and the Bakersfield College Rodeo Team President, Chloe Griffiths for a chat. We met in a study room at BC and had a great time talking rodeo.
    Andrea and Chloe told me that support for the rodeo team was impressive. She's getting help from a local stock contractor, Tinoco Bulls, and the Funny Farm. She's also gotten a good response outside the ag industry with a local plumbing contractor, HPS Plumbing, providing the team with jackets to make them feel like real professionals.
    Andrea talked about how valuable it can be for youth riders to compete at the college level. Not only can they hone their skills and get valuable experience, but they get an education too. Chloe is a perfect example. She was going to move away to find a college to rodeo at until she learned about the Bakersfield College Rodeo Team.

    Gabrielle Diakon and Equestrian Yoga

    Gabrielle Diakon and Equestrian Yoga We last visited with Gabrielle Diakon, Gabby, nearly two years ago amid quarantine and COVID. Gabby is still doing yoga for equestrians and working with horses. Now, she is podcasting. Gabrielle Diakon's Rolling My Third Eye Podcast is available on all podcast platforms. Her show focuses on equestrian mindfulness and deals with fear, anxiety, and many other issues competitive horse riders deal with. But, Gabby has also widened the show to include mediation, yoga, and connection outside of the equestrian world. Her philosophies help people deal with the problems life throws their way. We chat about many topics in this episode. The importance of journaling and how it can help focus. We talk about the power of creative visualization. Gabby is very open and willingly shares stories of her life and experience.
    Gabby holds online Yoga for Equestrians every Wednesday night at 7 PM central.

    Cristobal Scarpati Horsemanship

    Cristobal Scarpati Horsemanship

    Cristobal Scarpati Horsemanship
    Cristobal Scarpati and I met at the 2014 Horseman Reunion in Paso Robles. There, among some of the top colt-starters of the time Buster McLaury, Trevor Carter, Mary Kitzmiller, Clayton Edsel, and Buddy Uldrickson, was Cristobal's father, Oscar. I was new to horsemanship and colt-starting. Oscar walked into the round pen with no equipment and no shoes. How was this trainer going to start this colt? Over the next three days, Oscar had his colt gentled and ready to ride. This year, his son, Cristobal Scarpati, travels to the U.S. to host a few exclusive clinics showing Scarpati Horsemanship. Cristobal's philosophy extends beyond the horse and into all aspects of life. He comes to share his knowledge about horses and life in his clinics. Cristobal is also available for private lessons.He is only in this country for a short time. Take this opportunity to see his work.

    Building Rider Confidence

    Building Rider Confidence

    Building Rider Confidence  

    Samantha Shanks-Husbands knows the importance of rider confidence. Once a rider loses confidence, especially an older rider, it is extremely difficult to get it back. Samantha works with equestrians of all ages and skill levels. Her techniques help riders focus on what is important. Breathing is especially important in her program. Samantha feels that proper breathing can lead to a calmer horse as well as relax a nervous rider. Another technique she uses is creative visualization. Seeing the outcome of your ride in your mind's eye, before the ride even occurs, can improve a rider's confidence.
    Another key to building rider confidence, Samantha believes, is groundwork. Working with your horse from the ground allows you to get to know and build a bond with your horse. Samantha talks about not being in a hurry to get on your horse if you are not a confident rider.
    Two of the influences Samantha credits for her interest are Mark Rashid and Philippa Unwin
