Message from the President of ACMSA Mike Eastwood

What a month February was as ACMSA held two amazing events with people attending from 22 different states and Canada. The first event was held a West World of Scottsdale at the AQHA Sun Circuit show on Friday night January 30th. ACMSA and CMSA had $5000 of added money to this event and 5 times CMSA World qualifying points. The 64 competitors arrived in wet, muddy and raining conditions, an ESPN party next door with 10,000 people and the Phoenix Waste Management open across the street with 100,000, plus fans. All of this did not prevent ACMSA on having an incredible event. On Friday night the stands were full and the crowd reactions were awesome, cheering on the riders. The ACMSA would like to thank AQHA for including us in this event held in such an amazing world class arena. Thank you to West World of Scottsdale staff for all their help and support allowing us to hold an amazing Sun Circuit shootout event and CMSA for being a valuable partner. Without the CMSA we could not attempt to have events like this in Arizona. Here are the results of the 64 riders participating in the Sun Circuit Shootout: Ladies A -Karen Smith, Men A- Dale Schaefer, Ladies AA -Kimberly Larsen, Men AA-Nick Black, Ladies AAA- Jessie Kuka and Men AAA -Zane Chunn.
AQHA Results: Youth Division- Samantha Erdmann, Select Amature Divison- Blair Philippi, Amature Divison -Nick Black and Open Division- Kenda Lenseigne.

LAZY K RANCH TRAINING CLINIC SET FOR MARCH 21 & 22

Clinician Larry Knapp Will Showcase Training Methods Used On The Ranch

Chowchilla, CA – The Lazy K Ranch will hold a one & 1/2 day training clinic on March 21 and 22, 2015 for owners of Pick-A-Colt Day Sale horses and spectators wishing to learn more about working with their own horses.

As part of the ranch’s on-going commitment to the horses they raise and sell and to the people who purchase their stock, Larry Knapp will share hands-on training methods, adapted from those brought to the Lazy K by Tom Dorrance, years ago. The training techniques, will be the same methods used to start young horses for Lazy K’s yearly productions sale, as well as the horses that stay and work in the Lazy K remuda.

“We employ over 150 saddle horses in our operation and because we raise our own replacements, at any given time there are 10 plus youngsters in training at the headquarters. Solid ground skills are the foundation of our program and during the clinic, participants will have an opportunity to see first hand some of the methods we use here on the ranch,” said Larry Knapp.

A day of Reiki dreams at Dreamchaser Horse Rescue By Kimberly Cotter
A day of Reiki dreams at Dreamchaser Horse Rescue
By Kimberly Cotter

Kimberly wasn’t sure what would happen during her one day stay at the Dreamchaser PMU Horse Rescue. She was there to perform Reiki treatments with the various animals, most of whom were horses. Many of the horses living here were rescued from the drug industry where they had been exploited for the pregnant mare urine needed to make the female drug called “Premarin”. Kimberly was looking forward to the day ahead. The town of New River was about an hour north of Scottsdale, Arizona where she was staying for a few days.

Upon her arrival, she was greeted by several barking dogs of various sizes and breeds who were in the wire-fenced area closest to the main house. She decided to stay outside the fenced-in area surrounding the two story home and wander the grounds until she came upon a worker or volunteer to speak with. Once she was escorted she felt better about facing the pack of five who were still racing about inside the fence trying to discover her purpose for being there. They had quieted down quickly and seemed to know she was not a threat to them.

A BIT OF CONTROVERSY By Barry Denton
A BIT OF CONTROVERSY
By Barry Denton

The nicest thing about living in a free society is that you can make up your own mind about what you want to do. Of course, there is always somebody trying to tell you why you should do it their way, but you can follow suit or choose to ignore them. I do not know who invented the judgmental folks that know everything, but there appears to be an abundance of them. Some thing else that is totally boring is a closed minded person that thinks there is only one way to do something. If you learn one thing in your life it should be that there is more than one way to do almost anything. Granted some methods are better than others, but figure out what works for you. This is what brings me to the science of bitting horses. Is bitting a horse, a science?

The late great California horse trainer Jimmy Williams made a science out of bitting a horse and understood it well. Mr. Williams had more using bits than anyone I have known and invented many bits that were for a specific horse or task. Although the legendary riding master passed away in 1993 many of his bit designs are still being used today by America’s top horseman. Mr. Williams was a horse trainer’s trainer as he excelled in both English and western disciplines. In 1989 Mr. Williams received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Horse Shows Assn. Later he was inducted into the Show Jumping Hall of Fame and received the prestigious Vaquero Award from the California Reined Cow Horse Association.

With so many champions to his credit it is hard to argue with his knowledge of bitting horses. One thing that he stressed in his training was just how important it was to preserve the horse’s mouth as he progressed through the training regimen. He was big on using your legs as a primary cue and not the bridle. Mr. Williams would often do a complicated reining and jumping routine using a bridle and then do the same routine just as accurately without the bridle. As much as he promoted his use of specific bits he also promoted good riding. The other part he stressed was taking care of a horse’s mouth. He emphasized how important it was to check your horses mouth frequently and have its teeth floated on a regular basis. Good horsemanship was his calling and bitting was his specialty.

TALKING WITH HORSES
TALKING WITH HORSES

By COLIN DANGAARD

Fear is the enemy in all dealings with the horse. There can be no meaningful communication with a horse that is afraid. If the fear increases, the horse simply explodes. Horse no cerebral spheres to process reason.

Jackie L. Smith of Westlake, California, writes: “I have a rescue horse that is wonderful to be around – except if I try and put on a saddle. Then he starts to tremble, and looks very worried. I am afraid to ride him until I figure out what is going on. Any ideas?”

Yes, Jackie, the horse is afraid, and before you proceed, you must start from the beginning. He has had a bad experience somewhere along. If you are lucky, you might be able to give him something positive to think about. It will require patience. I will answer your question by explaining what I did with such a horse.

Colorado State University Summit reimagines the future of agriculture
Colorado State University Summit reimagines the future of agriculture

FORT COLLINS - What will it look like to feed an additional 2 billion people by 2050? How will American farmers and ranchers help meet that demand? And what changes will be needed in Colorado’s agriculture and food industries to ensure continued prosperity?

Some of the country’s leading influencers and thinkers in agriculture will assemble at Colorado State University to explore creative and collaborative responses to these challenges.

The “Advancing the Agriculture Economy Through Innovation” summit will be held March 18-20 at CSU’s Lory Student Center. The event will demonstrate the broad scope and significance of the industry within Colorado and the world, while connecting innovators prepared to reimagine its future.

Tackling the big questions

The summit will open with an executive leadership roundtable exploring the obstacles and opportunities of agriculture’s next decade, followed by master classes on big data and climate-smart agriculture.

The final two days of the event will feature provocative panel sessions focused on topics such as sustainable water technologies, the global food system, the fast and fresh food revolution, and creative approaches to agricultural financing.

Colorado’s leadership role in driving innovation across the agricultural value chain will be spotlighted.

“The cluster of companies along the Front Range spawned by and supplying agriculture-related businesses is impressive; we are truly living in an innovation corridor,” said CSU Associate Vice President for Engagement Kathay Rennels. “The summit will expose and highlight the diverse relationships that make Colorado such an attractive state for companies and research on the forefront of innovation.”

Competing Horse Trainer Feature
Chance Stone – Queen Creek, AZ

Chance and his family were always involved with horses. His love for horses started at a very young age while being raised in the ranching and rodeo lifestyle. In the beginning, most of Chance’s involvement with horses consisted of participating in rodeo events including team roping and saddle bronc riding. During his high school years he rode a few colts for a trainer or friend who had young horses that needed ridden. While furthering his education at Central Arizona College he shoed horses under Charlie Hill. To this day he still shoes for Charlie as well as himself in the East Valley area.
It was during this time, while working alongside Charlie that Chance really became aware of how to understand different horses and their needs. As well as gaining a vast amount of insight in the shoeing aspect of the horse, he was very fortunate to have opportunities to start young colts with Charlie Hill’s guidance. “He gave me help and insight when I needed it but he allowed me to struggle through certain areas to find the best way to fill in for these young horses. Starting colts is not just learning how to start a green horse, but teaches me as a horseman, how to fill in for the naïve horse and how I can use this in all of my horsemanship activities.”

“Food for Thought”
by Rocco Wachman

Boy, I have had a great life, really! I have always done what I wish, when I wished it. Worked on what I wanted to when I wanted. Gone where I felt when I felt like it. I have been accused of being an “Outlier” just living outside the rules and accepted ways of the rest of the world my whole life. I have forgone most of the comforts, needs, wants and desires of the rest of society without regret or remorse. I have only one thing, made one choice or as most would put it made one mistake that I cannot fix and I shed tears over it every morning.
