LAKESIDE—What could possibly be more desensitizing for a group 14 trail horses than to line them up, facing across the arena from a similar amount of spooky mountain bikers?

How about sending everyone—riders and bikers—circling the arena at once? At different speeds!

Cow… abunga!

Now in its 11th year, good vibrations are still going strong for the Surf N Turf Cow Horse clinic—for everyone. The fund-raiser for Surfers Healing, a non-profit foundation for autism, was the brainchild of Izzy and Danielle Paskowitz. Izzy, a former world champion surfer, and Danielle, a talented non-pro cowhorse competitor, founded Surfers Healing in 1996 after Izzy one day discovered the rejuvenative power surfing had on their autistic son, Isaiah.

The vaccine debate is not limited to whether or not to vaccinate your children. The debate continues over into our pets also. With horses, some people have the unfortunate experience of vaccine reactions that give the pause for future vaccines. So, with such concern over the vaccination of animals, we will review what is considered the minimum vaccines for all horses and what the optional ones are. First, let’s answer the question, “Do I really need to vaccinate my horse?”

December 2018 record high seller, 4 year old palomino gelding at $100,000.

The renowned Twombly Performance Horse Sale is ramping up for its July 26-27 dates in Cheyenne, Wyom. The sale takes place during the Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo—on the street in front of the Cheyenne Depot Museum. Twombly Performance Horses at Coyote Slide Ranch, located in the hills of western Nebraska, specializes in training and selling top quality geldings and mares. They offer conformation, dispositions, color and great pedigree and athletic ability. Ranch, trail, roping and reining are the ranch’s main focus, known for a style and flash. Twombly rides its horses through thick brush, up and down big hills and steep canyons. The horses are trained to be soft in the face and take their correct leads, stop on “whoa” command and to move away from the neck rein and leg pressure. All the horses offered in Twombly sales are owned and ridden by the Twombly family, nd they want to match a potential buyer with the perfect horse for them—and they intend to do whatever it takes to make that happen! Two major horse sales are held each year—the July sale in Cheyenne and the December sale in Las Vegas, Nev., during the National Finals Rodeo. The summer sale preview will be held Friday, July 26, at 6 p.m., and the sale will be held Saturday, July 27, at 5:30 p.m. Phone bids are welcome, and to view an online catalog with photos and video, visit www.TwomblyHorse.com.

According to author and motivational researcher Carol Dweck, Ph.D. of Stanford University, there are two mindsets. Some people think their basic traits are fixed for life. This is just who they are. They are defined by their past insecurities and traits such as shy, cautious, fearful, etc., and are limited by them.

The people who fall into this category are referred to as having a “fixed mindset.” According to her book Mindset, fixed-mindset people cope with failure very differently than the “growth-mindset” people. Fixed-mindset people feel that you are either gifted with ability or you are not. You either win or you lose.If they try something that is out of their comfort zone, they feel awkward and uncomfortable at not performing at a certain level. If they have to struggle with a new concept or skill, that spells failure. They are concerned with the approval of others and fear that showing their lack of ability in a new area will compromise how they are viewed and regarded by their peers. For those with this mindset, the risk of being vulnerable is too great, and often they quit.
