Norco Colt Starting Challenge
Colt Starting Challenge USA is coming to Norco on Feb. 26-27! Horse lovers will enjoy the Challenge in Horsetown USA. Competitions match young horses that have limited handling or never been saddled nor bridled, with great horsemen and horsewomen to train them. Russell and Cristy Beatty founded the Colt Starting Challenge USA which takes place over two days and showcases some of the best trainers in the country. By the time the contest concludes on the second day, trainers will take their horses through a series of challenges to show just how far the animals have come in a short time frame. The trainers use Natural Horsemanship techniques, which utilize each animal’s natural instincts. Each trainer receives markings by judges to decide the winners of each competition. This isn’t the old-school style of breaking horses to work under a saddle, where cowboys would saddle a young horse, then ride through the bucking and kicking in order to teach the animal to work. Natural horsemanship allows each horse the opportunity to understand its surroundings while gaining confidence. That’s what makes it exciting, not only for the contestants but also horse owners and those viewing from the audience. For more information, see the ad on page 29. To register your horse, call (808) 269-3408 or email qualityhorse102@aol.com. The website is  visit www.ColtStartingChallengeUSA.com.

New Farnam® Laser Sheen® Skin & Coat Supplement revolutionizes healthy skin and coat health from the inside out. Head-turning shine does more than make a great first impression. It also speaks volumes about a horse’s overall well-being. When your horse needs to look and feel his best, you need new Laser Sheen Skin® & Coat Supplement. This scientifically formulated blend provides essential nutrients for a radiant coat and healthy skin from the inside out. Formulated by an equine PhD nutritionist, it provides a show-stopping shine that will capture the attention of any audience. Laser Sheen® Skin & Coat Supplement contains ceramides — the same fatty acids found in many beauty products for humans — to help retain moisture for a velvety soft coat as well as help support skin hydration. A proper balance of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids supports skin and coat health. It also contains a probiotic to support proper digestion of nutrients, allowing your horse to get the most benefit from each ingredient. There’s less waste because the unique extruded nuggets are readily eaten. Feed it year-round and watch your horse bloom. It’s available in two convenient packaging options: a 7.5 lb. Farnam Fresh Keeper Bucket and a handy 30-day, 3.75 lb. bag that can be used as a refill.
