No feed or hay change. Actually, his stool will be somewhat normal, not firm apples but has some substance to them, for most of the time then about once or twice a month it gets loose to the point of liquid. I had him…

Profiling the Connection Between Horse and Rider

 

This is such a good idea.

 

SmartPak is visiting different barns to profile horse rider connections.

 

As riders, we know there’s a special connection between us and our horses that’s hard to put into words, but this bond is so strong that even non-riders can sense it. In an effort to better understand this relationship, our staff Photographer, Kristi (one of the few non-riders at SmartPak), will be visiting a different SmartPaker’s barn each month to…

Your July Horseyscope by Lauren Bode





Cancer  June 21 - July 20

You will be moving so fast, it will be impossible to

stay in touch. Keep up the good work. You are giving your horse

a lot of attention and affection.  He needs both at the moment as

he is just coming out of a serious training period.

Leaving the past behind may be good for you, who really knows?

It will depend on your…
