Learning About Horses
Paul Revere's Midnight Ride
By Don Blazer
It was just one of those days. Or, in this case, nights.
Just over 227 years ago, Paul Revere rode into history.
But as a lot of history, it wasn't reported very accurately. Not until Paul confessed at age 63 that his ride on April 16, 1775, was a disaster.
His supposedly wild gallop from Boston to Concord to warn, "The British are coming," was really a slow stroll into a trap, which led to his capture by the British, which led to his failure to warn the Minutemen of Concord, which led to the loss of his horse, which didn't even belong to him.
Non-Structural Carbohydrates and Horses
It’s no laughing matter.
We make jokes about our horses being over-weight. They look like Thelwell ponies or we can’t keep a saddle on. Click Here to Read More..
Can you train your horse to be champion by taking an online course?
…..you bet you can!
She started as a 2-year-old "demonstration" horse for www.horsecoursesonline.com and finished with two ABRA World Championship awards and a Reserve World Championship title.
Sheza Especial Gold got her training as a demonstration horse for Don Blazer's online course, Training Performance Horses. Step by step she followed the course program until she competed for 2010 and 2011 World Championship titles at the American Buckskin Registry Association show in Tulsa, Ok. Blazer rode the 5-year-old filly in her competition classes.
In 2010 Sheza won the ABRA Junior Trail Horse title under all five judges, and then came back this year to repeat as a judge's choice sweep in Junior Trail.
This year the filly also won Reserve World Champion honors in All-Ages Western Riding, a pattern class requiring 8 flying changes of lead. She was the only junior horse in the class.
Sheza was sold at the Reichert Celebration Show Horse Sale in Fort Worth September 9 and 10.
"We'll miss Sheza in our program," Blazer said. "Hopefully she'll go on to win many more titles for other horse lovers. I think she'll make an exceptional all-around horse for an amateur or youth rider."
Sheza's trail horse training followed the course instructions in Train A Trail Horse, taught by world champion trainer and AQHA director Cathy Hanson. The filly's education in western riding came from following the instructions in Train for Western Riding taught by world champion trainer Nancy Cahill.
