“Trail Riding Edition”
New Painted Ponies
Trail Of Honor
The 11th Release features eight new painted ponies: Crazy Horse;
About: The Trail of Painted Ponies Figurines are bringing the art and the collectible worlds together. Each figurine is inspired by an original Painted Pony and has been crafted with exquisite attention to detail. As such, each figurine has an authenticity that makes it a miniature work of art in its own right.
The Trail of Painted Ponies standard-size figurines are cast in either ceramic or resin and stand approximately 6 " in height. New Painted Ponies are crafted every six months, and at least twice a year, a certain number of figurines are "retired." Each beautiful Painted Pony is sequentially numbered and is accompanied by a "story tag" which tells the tale of the Pony, and provides information about the artist.

From Tack’n & Togs Industry Report:
Hours Spent Per Week on Horse-Related Activities
Horse owners are deeply involved with their equine family members, according to a new research study. A survey of more than 1,000 horse owners demonstrated that those who own horses spend an average of 22 hours per week, or one of every five waking hours, on horse-related activities. More than half (59 percent) rode in one or more competitive event within the last year, according the Equine Market MegaStudy recently published by two industry consulting firms.

UHCA Trail Challenge Training at Heartland Ranch – April 5 & 6
This summer will offer several opportunities for you and your horse to compete in extreme trail riding.
The UHCA season begins at Heartland Ranch with a “get yourself started” clinic hosted by B. Rex Buchman. Rex will work on horsemanship and “jungle training” teaching your horse to approach obstacles from a thinking perspective rather than a reactive one. The day will start in the arena with respect and respond games. Then we will venture out on the trail to work on obstacles you might encounter in the competition and finish the day with some practice runs. It’s guaranteed to be fun and a practical way to keep yourself safe and competitive.
Class starts at 9:30, lunch at 12:00, concluding at 4:30 p.m. Cost is $50 per rider.
B. Rex Buchman Horses, Inc. specializes in customized clinics, trail rides, ranch vacations, working ranch experiences, horsemanship instruction and horse outfitting rentals. 1120 250th Road, Elmdale, KS 66850 - 620-794-5332.
Heartland Ranch is located in Wakarusa, KS at 3201 SW 93rd St., 1½ mile west of South Topeka Blvd. 785-836-2020
FoxEye Ranch (Lawrence) Trail Clinic (UHCA) - April 19
Get your horse tuned up for the trails in the show ring or the state park this spring. Learn more about the UHCA and trail riding on Saturday, April 19th from
9 am - 4 pm, at the beautiful FoxEye Ranch, 12550 246th St, Lawrence, KS. Limited to 15 Adult riders. Fee $120, lunch included. Contact Chris Mensch or Maura Landry at 785-749-5502 to reserve your spot.
The morning session will be in the indoor arena with a variety of classic trail obstacles: bridge, tarps, curtains, pole work, drags, carries, gates, etc. Trail class maneuvers will include backing, sidepasses, work in the box and two-tracking. Morning session will concentrate on developing a sense of trust and co-operation between you and your horse. The obstacles and maneuvers are simply tools to test your communication skills.
The afternoon session will be outdoor work on natural and man-made obstacles: one, two, and three-steps, water crossings, ravines, ditches and jumps. This session will stretch your comfort zone. Riders will be encouraged to trust their horses and allow their horses to trust in them, as they navigate more challenging situations. Safety is foremost, but confidence and security go hand in hand as you and your equine partner expand your horizons.
Side note: Miss Kitty and I attended this clinic last year and it was great – I’m still laughing and can’t believe we conquered all the obstacles except the bridge! The “pit of death” (filled with beach balls and swimming pool noodles) was so much fun! Then there was the “radio-active snake pit” that we walked thru (light ropes thrown in a heap over a blue tarp with sand on top – so it would move and make noise) – what fun we had with it! Can’t forget the squawking (toy) chicken we had to pick up and carry. Makes me really anxious to see what fun things Chris & Maura & friends come up with this year! It’s an adventure! Don’t miss it!
