Our First Horse Show Together
26th Aug 2012   |   Shows and Events   |   ImaCoolCowgirl
I've been horse crazy for as long as my parents can remember. I used to love going to shows to watch all the pretty horses, which sadly for them, lead to a new dream of not only working with, but owning a horse and eventually showing. I had been lucky enough to participate in a s ...
The Great Debate: Rope Halters vs Flat Halters Part 2
30th Apr 2012   |   General   |   ImaCoolCowgirl
The stimulation of pressure points is an exact science and unless the halter is tied on obscenely tight that it hits the correct pressure points any time there is pressure on the halter it doesn’t work. The knots do however create sore spots and/or bruising if the halters are lef ...

The Great Debate: Rope Halters vs Flat Halters
8th Apr 2012   |   General   |   ImaCoolCowgirl
I love writing articles on controversial methods in the horse world, not to start arguments, but to make people think about what they are doing and why they are doing it. To start my series I wrote an article on Slant Load vs. Straight Load trailers quite a few months ago; the se ...
The Truth About Winter Woolies
2nd Mar 2012   |   General   |   ImaCoolCowgirl
One of the most believed myths in the horse world is that blanketing a horse during the winter will actually keep your horse from growing a winter coat. Blanketing your horse earlier or keeping it in a heated barn has virtually no effect. There are quite a few reasons as to why t ...
I Never Got To Say Goodbye To My Pony
6th May 2011   |   General   |   ImaCoolCowgirl
I've had a rough week. This past Saturday the horse that taught me to ride had to be put down. My first encounter with Snowball started at a small theraputic riding stable years before I started working there. A man donated this small white shetland pony to the program. Snowb ...
My Life Through Them
11th Apr 2011   |   Horse Stories   |   ImaCoolCowgirl
Three years ago I started public school, if it wasn’t for them I would have never made it through. Late last fall my parents were separated and I would have never made it through that period if I didn’t have them. These horses are my life, my love and my future. We have just join ...

29th Mar 2011   |   Horse Fiction   |   ImaCoolCowgirl
A fictional story my mother wrote for me based on my work with theraputic riding and my first horse Freckles. He steps forward. The muscles tense and bulge under the tight skin. His compact powerful legs have propelled him over hurdles his whole life. His mother died during ...
Rescue Me
4th Feb 2011   |   Horse Fiction   |   ImaCoolCowgirl
Two weeks ago I heard a lot of crying, and a lot of whispering. But I never saw what anyone and no one ever came to feed me, or give me water. I peered through the bars into the stall next to me. Maze was looking worse. She was lying down and not moving much. I nickered softly tr ...
Cowboy Mounted Shooting
24th Jan 2011   |   General   |   ImaCoolCowgirl
Last summer I was Googleing random horse pictures and came across some neat pictures of riders shooting on horse back. Naturally I try to learn everything that I can about horses and I came across the really amazing sport called Cowboy Mounted Shooting (CMS). I found that it seam ...
The Race
13th Jan 2011   |   Horse Fiction   |   ImaCoolCowgirl
I was paraded in front of the grand stand. People clapped and cheered, I started to prance and toss my head excited by attention. “Settle Nevie, they aren’t clapping for you. You’re the long shot at 80 to 1. You can’t win this, Windswept Thunder has you beat by a mile before you ...

I have seen a lot of people wanting a model horse contest so I am going to host one! This is the first one I’ve ever done so it is a learning experience. If it works out well I may host others. Models will be judged first on their condition: lack of breaks, scratches, etc. Sec ...
The Shriek of a Peacock On My First Trail Ride
27th Dec 2010   |   Horse Stories   |   ImaCoolCowgirl
We were walking up the road towards the trail when we heard a rather loud screeching noise. It got louder and louder as we got closer. Suddenly the horses heard it and stopped abruptly. Mr. McLaughlin and I urged them forward making them walk toward the sound. Almost at once the ...
The Jump
10th Dec 2010   |   Horse Fiction   |   ImaCoolCowgirl
He prances gracefully into the ring at a collected trot. His coat gleams in the late afternoon sun. His dark mane braided and tucked under in neat little bumps. His dark tail braided and flung high as his rider circles him at a walk trot and canter before turning him towards the ...

This article is to the tribute to the woman who has given me the most amazing gifts of all. This woman gave me my horses. I call her Mrs. M. I met Mrs. M when I was about six, while playing PeeWee soccer with her son. My mother and her became friends as well as Mr. M and my dad. ...
The Story of Chris
16th Sep 2010   |   Horse Stories   |   ImaCoolCowgirl
After riding him the first time I made more time to groom him and ride him. I learned all I could about him. He was a trained barrel horse in his younger years, but was abused by his rider and refused to run. He was terrified of whips and being tied. He was kept by himself and is ...
Color Breed Confusion Resolved
11th Aug 2010   |   General   |   ImaCoolCowgirl
Color breeds are not BREEDS! Any Paint, Pinto, Palomino, or Appaloosa is also a non color breed. Just like there are sorrels, chestnuts, blacks, grays and whites, there are paints, pintos, palominos and appaloosas. They just have their own associations and registries ...
Straight Vs Slant Load Trailers
26th May 2010   |   General   |   ImaCoolCowgirl
What made horse people come to this conclusion? In the 1980s the first slant load trailers became available to the common horse person. The original purpose was to fit more horses in a smaller, shorter space. Also people noticed that when hauling horses in trailers with no divide ...
