Riders should be aware of emergency procedures, phone numbers, and first aid equipment. Riding alone is generally unsafe. If you must do so, take your cell phone along. Most barns prohibit smoking for obvious reasons.
Not in a showing mood? How about some team penning fun!? The Salt Lake equestrian Park (located on 2200 West in SLC) offers a night of team penning from 4 to 10 p.m. on Tuesday, February 19. Even if you’re just starting out, this friendly group always welcomes beginners. The experts are usually willing to share some helpful tips. This is a great way to get out and have a good time on horseback (plus the indoor arena is dry and warm). Check out the equestrian park’s website for more information.
Access to trails – Are you more interested in trail riding than winning ribbons in the show ring? Then make sure that your boarding barn is near a large and well-developed horse trail system.
horses by nature are grazers. This means that in their natural habitat, they would enjoy grazing all over a nice pasture while looking for food to eat. On top of that, horses can function their very best if they are well provided with enough roughage to keep up with their digestive needs. However, captive horse, unlike the wild grazers, may not receive enough food from pastures. Hence, an additional supply of good quality horse feed as well as hay will fill in that missing nourishment.
The broodmare sighed out a deep breath and shifted her weight, the opposite hip cocking as she raised the heel on one foot and sank her weight down into this comfortable position of rest. Excitedly, the colt raised his head, an inquisitive gaze sent forward, though the still-slack lip told him she rested still. He stomped the ground angrily with one hind foot and went back to nursing.
“The herd?” He’d raised his head from the feed bucket, where he’d been pretending to eat the big horse food, little bits of bran and oat husks clinging to his long whiskers and making him sneeze.
When buying men’s turquoise jewelry be sure to buy it in a setting that will protect the gem stone. This is because turquoise is one of the softer gemstones, with a rating of MOH of 6 on the hardness scale and it can easily be damaged if it suffers a hard impact. The fact that it is so fragile makes it difficult to cut it into facets without breaking. That is why they are usually sold as turquoise beads or cabachons.
Madrid is the capital of Spain and the city and its surrounding areas are home to some great cultural treasures you really shouldn’t miss. Try going on a day trip to close by Toledo: here you can see the imposing fortress of the Alcazar as well as the cathedral that took 250 years to build. Madrid is also where you can see Picasso’s Guernica at the Reina Sofia Museum as well as the Prado Museum, another top attraction. The Royal Palace is also worth visiting.
