The first practice runs of our Team Line Sorting. I wanted to leave the ambient sound to help you get a feel for the event. I hope it’s not too distracting. Team Sorting is a competition using the horses and to get the cows across a line in the orders of their number. It really tests your horse and horsemanship.
On this video we take you along with us on one of our trail rides. We had a beautiful day out at the Kern River riding Dusty and Jessie. We took a little video of the terrain and trails to give you a taste of the great area we get to ride in. We also show you some of the trail obstacles we encounter along the way.
Ranae’s good friend Susan remembered Ranae saying she had always wanted to ride a Friesan horse. Susan contacted and owner of several Friesans in Norco, Ca and arranged to have one of Ranae’s dreams come true for her birthday. While I thought I was just going along to document the wonderful event, I ended up getting to ride one as well! What an experience!
Join me out in my backyard on a lovely spring evening as I strive for adequacy (I’ll go for excellence later) in the ancient art of whip crackin’ using my recently purchased Downunder Horsemanship Aussie Stock Whip. I’ve seen people crack whips all my life and it looks so easy. What IS easy is crackin’ the whip and having it it your arm or your back. OUCH! Be sure to were safety googles.
Practicing with my Downunder Horsemanship Aussie Stock whip. A follow up to my earlier video on Whip Crackin’. I’ve watched the video and read up about it on the internet. It’s not as easy as it looks, folks. I still occasionally whack myself and sometimes my horse. A quick little update to show you how my Quarter Horse Jessie is handling the crackin’.
