Equine Emergency Preparedness Equine emergency preparedness is so not a glamorous topic. And, it doesn't matter if you live in California with our fires and earthquakes (there was a 3.0 last night) or in the Midwest, or in a different country. Bad things will happen. No one wants to think about the disaster that may happen. No one wants to picture what will happen to their horse if they are unprepared. But as powerful as horses are, they can be extremely fragile in many situations. In past episodes, we've talked to . We talked to people at . On today's show, we talk to Julie Atwood about...

Horseback Archery When I think of horseback archery, I think of Robin Hood and Medieval Times. I didn't realize people were practicing it today. We did a podcast on a few years ago, and that was fun. While riding through nearby , we noticed them setting up the arena for an event. I keep a watch for happenings here because it is one of my favorite stables. We can ride right along the Kern River.

The Team Roping PodcastTeam roping

I've been lucky enough to get a few freelance writing assignments.  For my latest article I had an opportunity to do a sidebar about team roping in Bakersfield with champion Team Roper Denny Watkins.  

Denny made it to the NFR 19 consecutive years. He still ropes competitively.  He also teaches roping to ropers of all levels.  Denny offers a great insight to the word of team roping and with 40+ years of experience he has a ton of stories to tell. Once again, it was an impromtu interview just before one of Denny's Team Roping practices.  You'll hear some background noise (sorry) of him getting his horses ready to work.  

Denny talks about his Dad and his early years with horses.  Then, Denny tells the story of how he got into team roping.  Along the way you'll hear some stories about his years at the NFR.  And, you will also get some insight into the world of team roping, how the scoring is set up and how money is earned. 

Denny has a series of short instructional videos on Vimeo VOD and Youtube.  These videos offer offer hints and tips every team roper can use.  Most of these videos are less than 2 minutes.  They are designed so you can watch them on your phone before an event or practice.  they can improve your team roping.
