How to Find Time to Ride
For many of us finding time to ride is a constant battle. The daily grind of earning a living, taking care of family and household are a constant cycle.

March Means Maple Syrup

March certainly has roared in like a lion.  Much snow has blanketed the area with lots more in the hills and higher elevations.  It makes for tough going for those who enjoy backyard maple syrup production.  Treading through three to four-foot drifts to collect the sap bucket by bucket becomes quite a workout.  Maple season marks the coming of spring.  Days are longer, the sun is warmer, and the birds are starting to be heard.  I have spent several weekends this time a year out by the barn boiling away many gallons of tree sap to harness one to two gallons of liquid gold.  This year due to all this snow I decided to pass but spent this past Sunday at a friend’s house overseeing his one pan/one man production.

How to Teach Your Horse to Jump Water
If you want to train your horse to jump water then don’t begin by teaching him to jump into it.
