InGate graphicPat Parelli will be teaching a natural horsemanship clinic Southern California May 12-14 at the Ingalls Park Arena in Norco. This year celebrates 35 years of the Parelli Program, which teaches riders how to gain leadership with their horses, how to better communicate, and how to get the best results. Pat’s coaching focuses on safety, ethical treatment and effectiveness.

The Parelli program is for horses of all breeds — western, English, gaited horses or other types of riding. Pat is a master teacher who helps riders correctly develop a foundation so that horses accept additional training that leads toward specialization in a particular discipline. It’s the foundation to all disciplines and recreational riding. Pat helps people solve problems so that they can gain more enjoyment with their horses — and reduce accidents.

InGate graphicThe Norco Colt Starting Challenge is set for Friday, Feb. 24 from 6-9 p.m. and will continue on Saturday, Feb. 25 from 6-10 p.m. at Ingalls Park in Norco. Tickets are just $15 to attend the Colt Starting Challenge, which focuses on Natural Horsemanship and utilizes a horse’s natural instincts. The techniques used are a far cry from what was done a generation ago and what many have seen regarding breaking horses on TV and in the movies. The competitions are the brainchild of trainer and horseman Russell Beatty. In the two-day challenges, trainers are matched via random draw to horses that have had limited handling — no saddle nor bridle ever on the animal. To close out the challenge, trainers take their horse through a variety of obstacles in order to show how far their animals have come in a short amount of time. Mark your calendars and enjoy this competition. If you would like to enter a horse or purchase tickets, contact Colt Starting Challenge USA at ColtStartingChallengeUSA.com or call (808) 269-3408.

Notice anything new and different with Horsetrader?

From the Horsetrader sales staff - January 1st, 2017

InGate graphicHappy New Year! There’s nothing like opening up a new calendar and starting with a clean slate. You might have noticed some freshness when you opened this issue of the Horsetrader — the first of 2017. For one, we’ve redesigned some of the sections. The Fototrader pages — those popular horse-for-sale and trailer-for-sale color picture ads — have been relocated into the front of the magazine. This puts them on on the same pages as our other popular sale listings, our classifieds. We’ve changed the look and feel a little, too, to help readers slow down to check them out. We hope you like the changes…please let us know!

From the Horsetrader sales staff - October 6th, 2016

InGate graphicLong before it was fashionable, Modesto Milling began taking organic feed production seriously. The company gained its first organic certification from Oregon Tilth of Corvallis, Ore., in 1998, becoming the first organic grain processor in Central California. Ninety-nine percent of the ingredients the company uses are organic or naturally-mined products, and its horse feeds contain only the best organic oats, barley and alfalfa, as well as organic coconut meal that are high in digestible fiber and healthy fats to promote healthy coats. What are other difference-making ingredients? Well, they include organic peas for high-quality protein; flax seeds and sunflower seeds for the omega 3 and omega 6 fats; organic stabilized rice bran for its fat and low-starch content; supplements like natural vitamin E and biotin for healthy coats and hooves; plus additional quality ingredients like diatomaceous earth, zeolite, yeast, sea kelp and other essential nutrients. The essential oils and herbs give the products a unique flavor that horses enjoy.
