Gift Ideas for a Western
Christmas is just around the corner and it is always fun to find that unique and special gift for your favorite cowboy or cowgirl and don’t forget your equine partner! Here’s a list of some of my favorite western gifts. I hope Santa will use this list when he does his shopping for me! And, yes, Santa, I have been a very, very good girl this year!
Top 12 Western Gift Ideas:
1. Western Rugs – Many patterns, colors, and sizes – for home, office or horse trailer. Ask us to order one for you.
2. American Ranch Faux Leather & Fleece Throws - Washable, softest feel ever – perfect for the recliner, couch or living quarter horse trailer. Monogram for awards or
for that special event.
3. Boots – Can’t have too many pairs of boots! Work or dress, exotic or casual. Two must haves – Ariat Terrains – the leather lace up shoe that is so comfortable with
lots of support for walking and standing; and the warm, dry, lightweight, comfortable, Muck boot, for chores and winter weather! Square toes and Buckaroos are the
hottest sellers on the market.
4. Western Apparel – Shirts, blouses, jeans, belts, socks, vests, jackets, sweatshirts, wild rags and gloves! For the authentic cowboy western look – tapestry vests, bib
and collarless WahMaker shirts for cowboys. Retro blouses, vests and split riding skirts for the cowgirls. Always dress your western best and what cowgirl or cowboy
doesn’t like new duds!
5. Western Art – Deck the walls with a new piece of western art. Liven up the bunkhouse for your holiday entertaining with a new look and a new picture on the wall will
make a dramatic change. Drape a little greenery over it for a festive holiday look while you are decorating.
6. Hats & Hat Cans – Time to treat yourself to a new western felt hat. Let Mike & Dewayne custom shape it to fit your face. Colors range this year from silver belly to
brown to black. Ribbon brim trim is really in! Another perfect gift is a hat can to store your good hats to protect and retain the shape. Hat cans run $40 and come in all
colors – you can even paint or decorate the hat can if you are creative!
7. Leather Jackets – It is leather weather! Leather works for dress or casual wear. Leather vests are always a popular gift. Lambskin sports jackets with ostrich trim are
the hot item for men. Men’s suede fringe jackets are a must have this year. Ladies have many styles to choose from – suede or smooth leather in tan and black with
many different trims – plus leather vests and shawls for that special event.
8. Unique Western Jewelry – Win that cowgirl’s heart with a beautiful turquoise necklace, bracelet, and earrings. Montana Silversmith has a great collection of vintage
cowgirl necklaces this year. Big, chunky, pieces with a pendant in the center are what’s hot. Cowboys, you can’t go wrong with a piece of jewelry!
9. Western Dishware – Update that holiday table with a new set of western dishware. There are many new patterns to choose from – Brands Vintage Ranch, Barbwire,
Old West, and Buckeroo just to name a few. Now it’s time to add the silverware, glassware, and companion pieces. Don’t forget the cowhide table runners or placemats
to show off your new dishware. Or how about a cowhide wine holder or western vase to add pizazz to your table. Be sure to try the Bob Tallman seasonings on your steaks!
10. Purses, Wallets, Billfolds, Cell Phone Holders, Checkbook or Bible Covers – Any nice quality leather product is not only a functional, but a stylish gift that reminds you of the
western lifestyle each time you use it.
11. Chinks – Now we know why all the real cowboys wear them – they are comfortable, protect your legs, keep you warm, help keep you in the saddle and they look good!
All sizes available from youth to adult. Beautiful browns and some with hair-on! Get ready to trail ride or participate in the Ultimate Horseman’s Challenges.
12. Gift Certificates – Totally confused and don’t know what to get that hard to find person – go for a gift certificate and let them pick out the gift that will fit their needs – makes
everyone happy and it is easy!

a. Let ER Buck – For anyone who loves rodeo! This is documentary about how the sport of rodeos started with lots of black and white footage and old time pictures – a real treat!

nice songs too!

d. Turn N Burn – For the barrel racer in your life – a documentary about barrel racing and interviews with some of the top barrel racers talking about their personal experiences
on the road to the NFR. Lots of good barrel racing footage.
2. Boot Socks – can’t have enough boot socks! We love the Ariat boot socks with Teflon toes and heels that never wear out – great support too! Ladies will love the thicker Thorlo
hiking socks that give you great support and a cushioned foot bed. We also have the thinner socks with horses on them – to wear with your slacks.
3. Painted Ponies – What’s not to love about the collectible Painted Ponies – great for gifts for that horse lover to put on their desk at work or add to their collection. The smaller
Christmas ornaments now come in tins for easy storage and wrapping! Get all the ornaments and decorate a small tree for your office, bath or hallway.
4. Western Christmas Ornaments – Look great on a western themed Christmas tree or use individually to adorn a package. These unique western ornaments are so special, that you
will want to keep a small Christmas tree up all year round.
5. Western Horseman 2009 Calendars – Make someone smile everyday of the year when they look at these wonderful western photos!
6. Western CD's – You won’t find these tunes on the radio, because this is real western music and poetry! Make your ears happy this holiday season with a CD from artists like:
Geff Dawson, Dave Boyd, Judy Coder & The Pride of the Prairie Band, Les Gilliam, Pat Meade, Dusty Workman, Brazos Valley Boys, Curly Musgrave and Belinda Gail and
7. Books - Camp Coffee: Tales of a Wyoming Cowboy, written by Bob Sullivan. This is a great book about a man who has lived a full life and touched so many people along the
way. Cookbooks – Cheyenne Frontier Days Cookbook is a wonderful collection of recipes and old photos from the “Daddy of ‘em All” beautifully presented in brown leather
like cover with gold lettering. This is a must have for the western cookbook collector or anyone who likes to eat well! Hot off the press are the new Saddle and Sirloin “Feed Bag”
cookbooks – filled with lots of delicious recipes! Stop by Roy Frey Western to get your copy – only $15 – great gifts and really great eating!
8. Cowsies (a coosie covered in cowhide) – This unique beverage holder will get lots of comments when you have it in your hand. It makes a fun gift. Set them on a cowhide coaster
and you are all set to watch TV.
9. Western Soft Stuffed Toys - A must have for the kids stockings! Horses, Jack Russell, Border Collie, Corgi and Aussie dogs, long horn steers, bucking bulls, goats, and many
more to choose from! Soft toys make great package toppers! Don’t forget the stick horse! Best present ever!
10. Picture Frames – Perfect for a photo of your favorite cowboy, cowgirl or horse! Take a picture of your friends out trail riding and then give it to them in a western frame.
What a special, personalized gift.
Top 11 Western Equine Gift Ideas:
1. Buckets – You can never have too many buckets! Fill with EasyAll or Cowboy Magic products to keep your horse clean and groomed. Add some treats from Flying Horse Bakery
and other horse products for a custom basket.
2. Oster Grooming Brushes –The handle on the Oster brushes will make you have happy hands! Easy to grip and use and the horses love the feel. They come in pink and blue. The
Oster Grooming kits are super for in the horse trailer. Organized in a nice nylon bag that comes in blue, pink, orange or lime green.
3. Tack – Headstalls, breast collars, halters, leads, etc. Horse people are always needing new tack and appreciate good quality. Even old paint gets tired of the same ole worn out
halter and lead.
4. Legacy Boots – Protect your horse’s legs while looking good in the arena. Front, hind and overreach boots come in orange, lime, turquoise, brown, red, blue, black and white
in sizes Small – XL.
5. Saddle Pads - Thinline Pads, Impact Gel Pads and ESP saddle pads – a good pad is the most important piece of tack you can get for your horse. New patterns and colors in
browns, oranges, turquoise and lime green are what are showing up in the arena. Purchase the correct pad for the type of riding you do and make your horse’s back happy!
6. Stowaway Cantle Packs – The perfect pack for trail riding! Never moves and comes in purple, red, green, blue, black and brown. Washable, too!
7. Hay Bags – Top loading, easy to use – lots of colors including orange and purple.
8. Cinches – Mohair, Soft Touch or the new felt from Cavall.
9. Reins – Try the new 9’ Trail riding single rein made of nylon braid that is soft, great width, with leather knot markers for extra grip and a perfect rein balance. Comes in brown
or pink. Prefer leather split reins? Herman Oak Leather from Weaver is the best – well oiled to last a long time.
10. Double Diamond Halter and Leads – The best training halter and leads endorsed by Buck Brannaman. The smaller 6 mm diameter with nylon core and a 16 strand nylon cover,
gives the horseman greater control and response. The knot on the end of the tail allows you to slip the halter over the horses head without untying the halter. Comes in Tan, Rust,
Burgundy, Black and Hunter Green
11. Saddles – Our favorite for trail riding is the Reinsman Comfort Seat Trail Saddle. It is balanced, fits a wide variety of horses, comfortable and fairly light weight for a nice made
saddle. Dewayne’s knees quit hurting when he started riding this saddle because the stirrups hang correctly. For barrel racing, you can’t beat the Crate’s Freedom Barrel Saddle
designed by Meleta Brown. It has an hour glass shaped tree to give your horse more shoulder room to turn, close contact and very balanced where you sit, and wider across the
hip to allow the horse to drive through the turns. Many barrel racers saw their times improve dramatically because the horse now has the “freedom” to work without being restricted
by the saddle.
We hope you all have been good cowboys and cowgirls and Santa brings you everything you have on your list! By the way, send your list to us and we will help Santa find the perfect gift for you and gift wrap it too!

The Magnetic Theory
Magnets have been used in different cultures over the years by those who believe magnets worn on the body promote good health. The theory is that magnet therapy may be beneficial by affecting the circulatory system, the blood flow in the body. Increased circulation is beneficial because the body gets more of the nutrients it needs from the blood.

New Fall Fashions – For Kids
Liz’s Trail Corner
Don't forget the breast collar. This past weekend I went on a great ride with friends in the Flint Hills. I had neglected to put in my breast collar. After climbing the first hill--my saddle slipped back and the rodeo was on. I fortunately was dumped on a flat rock. One of my companions had some pain reliever in her pocket which I took and I'm sure that helped. However, breast collars can help you out--they're not just for decoration--they stabilize your saddle and that makes a difference to you and your horse. If you don't have one --get one that does not interfere with the movement of the horse's shoulder. We have some very nice Hought Tack breast collars which will fit a wide range of horse sizes and are designed to work with English or western saddles. Then keep it snapped to your saddle so you don't leave it behind.
Stay Safe During Hunting Season – from email@example.com
Fall hunting season opens this month in many parts of the country. Here are five ways to protect yourself and your horse from being mistaken for quarry whether you're on the trail or outdoors at home.
1. Ride in a group. The more horses and riders, the more conspicuous you'll be in the woods.
Talk, laugh or sing as you go to make your presence known.
2. Be visible. At minimum, wear a blaze orange hunting vest. Consider outfitting your horse in
Day-Glo leg wraps and weaving bright orange surveyors flagging tape into his mane and tail.
3. Check in with local landowners. If you routinely ride across their property, verify that you're
still welcome during hunting season. Many people lease lands to hunters in the fall.
4. Patrol your own property. If you notice signs of unauthorized hunting, including salt blocks
or deer stands, check with local game officials about your recourse. Post "no hunting" signs
that meet local requirements.
5. Turn out horses in nearby paddocks cleared of trees. If necessary, temporarily relocate them
from remote, wooded areas until hunting season is over.

RFD TV filmed Craig Cameron’s Extreme Cowboy Race at Saddle
and Sirloin last March 25-26. This race will air on RFD beginning September
4th. There will be 13 thirty minute episodes beginning with the preliminary
runs and concluding with the finals and awards ceremony that was filmed in the

30 Horse & Rider Teams Compete for $6,000 in Cash Prizes in Craig Cameron's Extreme Cowboy Race™ at EquiFest of Kansas!
WHAT IS THE EXTREME COWBOY RACE™? Craig Cameron will not only present clinics at the 2008 EquiFest of Kansas in Wichita, Kansas, but he will conduct his Extreme Cowboy Race™ each day at the event. The Extreme Cowboy Race™—as seen on RFD-TV— is a timed and judged race through an obstacle course that is designed not only to push horse and rider teams out of their traditional “comfort zones,” but also to test communication between horse and rider and the horsemanship skills and athletic abilities of each competitor. Spectators will find the competition exciting and entertaining to watch while contenders will address its challenges in a race for $6,000 in cash prizes, and the title of “Extreme Cowboy Race Champion.”
A LITTLE BACKGROUND: The Extreme Cowboy Race™ was created by Ryan Dohrn of HorseCity.com along with Craig Cameron, who has designed and hosted three races at his Double Horn Ranch in Bluffdale, TX, since 2005. HorseCity.com decided to name the event the Extreme Cowboy Race™ to challenge typical reality TV shows with an infusion of horseback riding thrills. Each season Craig Cameron assembles an impressive roster of competitors from around the country who compete for the title of Extreme Cowboy Race Champion. The Extreme Cowboy Race™ spans 15, 30-minute episodes featuring horse and rider teams as they complete the various rounds of the race course. The Extreme Cowboy Race™ airs on RFD-TV and is also available on HorseCity.com for those who do not get RFD-TV.
THE EXTREME COWBOY RACE AT EQUIFEST OF KANSAS: Although the Extreme Cowboy Race™ at EquiFest of Kansas is not currently scheduled to be filmed for broadcast, the competition will include all of the same elements, excitement, and prizes associated with Craig Cameron’s televised productions in Texas. A maximum of 30 horse/rider teams will be selected by Mr. Cameron for participation in the race. The first 15 teams will compete Friday, February 13th with the remaining 15 teams competing Saturday, February 14th. The top ten horse and rider teams will advance to the Extreme Cowboy Race™ finals on Sunday, February 15th.
THE RACE COURSE: The race course will be constructed within the parameters of the arena and will feature obstacles similar to those featured in previous races as well as several new obstacles designed specifically for the race at EquiFest of Kansas. The course is likely to include obstacles and activities such as: saddling the horse, dragging logs, jumping obstacles, loading into a trailer, backing up through a pattern, pole bending or roll backs, navigating a log jumble, penning cattle and working gates, conquering dirt terrain, crossing water obstacles, etc.
OBJECTIVES AND JUDGING: The Extreme Cowboy Race™ will be a timed event during which the performance of each horse and rider team will be judged on each obstacle for quality of horsemanship. Judges will award points on a scale of 1-10 for the horse and rider’s performance through each obstacle based on the following criteria: horsemanship, cadence, control, horse’s attitude, and overall execution. Horses and riders will be required to complete each obstacle within a given time in order to receive points. If an obstacle is not completed within the given timeframe, the contestant will be flagged and must move on to the next obstacle. Times will be translated into points, with the highest overall score winning the race.
ILLEGAL EQUIPMENT: Exhibitors will be disqualified for use of the following equipment: Mechanical Hackamores Tie Downs
PRIZES: Cash prizes will be awarded to the top four finishers. The first place team will receive $2,400 and the title of “Extreme Cowboy Race Champion”; the second place team will receive $1,800; the third place team will receive $1,200; and the fourth place team will receive $600. Prizes will be awarded at the conclusion of the final phase of the race on Sunday.
HOW TO APPLY: The Extreme Cowboy Race™ will be open to all riders age 18 years and older and horses of all breeds. All horse and rider teams will compete against each other; there will be no “divisions” based on gender or age.
The entry fee for each horse/rider team is $350. Individual riders may compete with more than one horse in the race, but they must submit a separate application and fee for each horse they wish to enter in the race. Applications and videos will be received by EquiFest of Kansas and then forwarded to Craig Cameron who will select up to 30 competitors for the race. Applications should be submitted by December 10, 2008, in order to be included in the “first batch” of applications forwarded to Mr. Cameron for his review. Applications will be considered until 30 contestants are confirmed.
Once selections have been made, contestants will be notified by phone. Any applicants who are not selected will receive notification by mail along with their entry fee checks. Entry fees of accepted contestants will not be refundable.
