"...Another thing I learned is that descendants of the Chickasaw horse still live in a few places in the U.S., one of them being on the Currituck Outer Banks of North Carolina. In fact, there, approximately 100 descendants of colonial Mustangs brought to North America by explorers some 500 years ago roam freely and are protected by law. This group of horses is referred to as the #corollawildhorses or Banker #horses..." - Casie Bazay

"all is here! Some of you may have noticed it gets dark sooner and leaves have become to change colors. If you’ve done any shopping recently, then you have probably seen mums, Halloween candy and costumes, pumpkins, and other fall decor. It can really get you in the mood to decorate. In addition to your house, your barn is waiting for some festive decor.

Consider adding some of these fun things to your barnyard!" – Emily Fought, YourHorseFarm.com

"I may be crazy, but as much as I love the colors, the beautiful brown fall season here in Ohio pulls on my heartstrings. Something stirs in me, extra outside work slows down and gives me time to reflect on what is ahead. The beautiful silhouette of intricate bare trees, the gold of dried grasses and wheat waving in the wind, and the brown leaves that linger on the clinging oaks.  

You may be like me, I like to do a bit of decorating in my home and barn with fall decor when the seasons change.  Not too much, but just enough that when friends or family come to visit, there is a little added touch that feels warm and welcoming." – Debbie Disbrow, YourHorseFarm.com

"Google defines turquoise as “a semiprecious stone, typically opaque and of a greenish-blue or sky-blue color, consisting of a hydrated hydroxyl phosphate of copper and aluminum.” This stone has been a long-time favorite of mine for two main reasons. First, I adore the colors of the stone as it reminds me of the natural world, incorporating the many different shades of land and water. And second, I love it for the vibrations it brings to life.

For many, many generations turquoise has been associated as a stone of protection. It is also an extremely common stone found largely in the equestrian world. Upon this realization, I decided to dive deeper to see where this connection lies..." - Emily Griffin

"I think it’s about time that we talked about Fall fashion, ladies and gents. We can look around and see leaves changing to beautiful oranges and browns, pumpkins are coloring up our grocery stores (and possibly our homes too!), and nature is truly showing us how beautiful she is. 

While noticing all these stunning colors I’ve been thinking of how I can add a bit more to my Fall wardrobe. I’m always up for splurging on a new coat, dress, or pair of boots I mean, who isn’t?! 

After deciding to ‘Pumpkin Spice Up’ my wardrobe I did a little recognizance on this year's Fall fashion trends and here is what I found..." - Emily Griffin, YourHorseFarm.com

"It’s that time of year again, where the school bugs sing a little louder, the fog dances over the fields, and we are greeted by a crisp, cool August morning...

For us here in Ohio, that signals one thing: school is coming. Thousands of students await their first day of the school year, some anxious, some nervous, and some excited, but all are waiting in anticipation of what this year will bring.

While I can’t tell you how this year is going to go, I can give you some pointers on how to incorporate equestrian items into your style. I’m going to skip all of the big corporate brands that most of us already know about and introduce you to some smaller brands that are on the rise!" - Ida Foels, YourHorseFarm.com

"Most riders dream of having horses at home, but make sure you know what is involved.

There are many wonderful perks to having your horses at home! Most riders would love a small barn and a few acres to keep a couple of horses on. There’s nothing quite as nice as waking up and seeing horses from your kitchen window. You’d be just a short walk to your barn. Before you take the plunge and bring them home, make sure to do your research. There are a few drawbacks to backyard horses.

This pro and con list won’t be the same for everyone. There are so many different disciplines and types of horse owners from leisurely trail riders to competitive barrel racers and show jumpers. Each family will also have different income levels and types of facilities. This can easily change your experience i
 

"Everyone is feeling the pressure of inflation right now. Horse owners are experiencing higher costs for grain, hay, sawdust, boarding, and building materials. Most are looking for ways to cut costs and stretch their budget. Owning a horse isn’t cheap, but there are ways to make it more affordable. It doesn’t matter if you board or have your own barn, these tips can help you save a bit!" - Emily Fought, YourHorseFarm.com

"...The housing market is still on fire with low interest rates! Many first-time and seasoned home buyers have their pre-approvals ready and are waiting for the right house to come up.

Buying an equestrian property is not like buying any other real estate. It has its own challenges and demands..." - Emily Fought, YourHorseFarm.com

"There’s nothing more traumatizing than seeing your #horse barn up in smoke and flames. Not only do you stand to lose thousands in tack and equipment, but if your #horses become trapped inside the unthinkable could happen. Unfortunately, many barns are filled with flammable materials. This puts them at a greater risk of a barn fire! Most #barn #fires are preventable though. With the proper precautions, you can protect your barn and the animals you love so dearly..." - Emily Fought
 

"Were you able to watch the spectacular Games unfold this year?

This year’s equestrian events in the Olympics were more memorable than ever! With difficulties from COVID-19, the Games are running a year later than normal. They’re in full force now though! The opening ceremony took place on July 23, 2021 in Tokyo, Japan. A record number of teams and individuals competed in the equestrian events this year. An impressive 200 horse and rider duos showed off their talent. Furthermore, over 50 nations were represented!

This sport dates back over 2,000 years. The Greeks introduced dressage to their horses for war training. It continued as a military exercise with a three-day event- dressage, cross country, and jumping. In 1900, the equestrian sport first appeared in the Olympic Games. It was
 

"The Eventing world is in for a real treat this fall with the inaugural Maryland 5 Star taking place October 13th – 17th.

If you are looking for something fun to do that is equestrian-related this fall, this event is for you. The Maryland 5 Star is the second 5-star event to ever be held in the United States. For decades, United States eventing fans would have to gear up to travel to Kentucky every April, for the only U.S. 5-star event. Now there is a second opportunity to experience the thrill of 5-star level eventing in the United States." – Devyn Trethewey, YourHorseFarm.com

"Most horse barn rules are set in place for boarders and those taking lessons to follow as safety precautions. You may even have a set for guests that visit your personal barn. Without rules, there could be confusion about expectations. For those that grew up riding, this list will likely sound very familiar, but those new to the sport may not be familiar with all of them. Keep in mind each barn will likely have its own unique requests.

If you’re a barn manager looking to create a list, then here’s a helpful place to start. Those newer to the sport of riding may also want to familiarize themselves with common barn rules. Remember, these are for your horse’s safety as well as your own. Most injuries and accidents can be eliminated with extra care and attention..." - Emily Fought

Some riders can spend their whole life searching for their heart horse. This horse is like no other one you’ve ever owned.

"Miniature horses originated in Europe around the 17th century, mostly bred as pets for European nobility. They were imported into the U.S. during the late 1800s, but public awareness of this tiny breed didn’t really arise until the 1960s.

Today, miniature horses are quite popular. The size of a large dog, minis aren’t a pony breed, but instead, a scaled-down version of a large horse. True miniature horses stand under 34 inches, as measured from the last hairs of their mane. They are a versatile breed that not only makes great pets or therapy animals for people with disabilities, but can also be used and shown in a variety of disciplines including driving, halter, jumping, obstacle courses, and more.

"The most popular horse farm projects in the spring can vary depending on the specific needs of the horses and the climate in the region. Whether you’re an experienced horse farm owner or have limited experience with horse farm management, the spring season can be both an exciting and busy time. As the weather warms up and the grass starts to grow, there are several important projects to consider to ensure that your horses are healthy, happy, and thriving.

From pasture and barn maintenance to horse health care, training, and exercise… the list of projects can be overwhelming for a new horse farm owner. In this article, we’ll take a closer look at the most popular horse farm projects in the spring, and provide tips and advice on how to get started with each one. Whether you have one or

Right now is the perfect time to plan any new pastures you want to construct. You’ll need to determine the size, shape, and of course the fencing.

The horse fencing you choose needs to be safe, durable, and secure. We all know that horses can be hard on fences. They push boundaries, they run into them, and they may even try to chew on boards. With all the options available on the market, it may be difficult for you to decide the best one for your farm.

"You might not think too much about the tree on your saddle, but this component is perhaps the most important part of all. The saddle tree is the rigid structure that gives the saddle its shape and helps distribute the weight of the rider. It’s important to choose the right size tree for your horse as an ill-fitting saddle can lead to discomfort and pain for your horse and can also have an impact on your balance as a rider. As many saddle makers would say, a saddle is only as good as its tree!" - Casie Bazay, YourHorseFarm.com

With all this extra gear, your tack room is likely stuffed. This new year take some time to get organized and unload some of it. You won’t believe how good it feels to walk into a neat and clean tack room.

Before you can even start the organizing part of your goal, you’ll need to weed out the unused and unwanted items. This can be a great way to earn some extra cash and downsize your collection. It’s a lot easier to organize when you know everything that you have, so take time to go through it all!

"As temperatures rise this time of year, we often find ourselves retreating indoors to enjoy the air conditioner. Most of our horses don’t have that luxury, however. Horses, of course, don’t require air conditioning (neither do we, for that matter!), but, like us, they definitely seek ways to stay cool in the summer...
