Kimes Ranch Jean Company Launchs New Website

Kimes Ranch Jean Company Has Launched A New Website Western never saw this coming! (Scottsdale, June 24th, 2014) With their new take on a historical product, Kimes Ranch has launched a website this week unlike any in the western world.  Disposing of any stereotypical remnants that western fashion is not current Kimes Ranch is walking the line between fashion forward and western folk friendly.  They have created an interactive website with lifestyle videos that give you a feel for their ranch life. Product videos and images that give you a clearer idea of what their products look like while in motion or styled in different ways and a blog featuring information about other complimentary brands, an inside look at the company, and other horse related topics.  The idea behind the website is to show the essence behind the brand.  With a long western history behind the Kimes Ranch name, Matt and Amanda Kimes are showing that history is the foundation for their classically inspired line of jeans.  Their new website showcases real cowgirls and cowboys on the actual Kimes Ranch living “Western Uncomplicated”, as their tag line reads. “We are aware that not all of our clientele will see the […]

YES to Spanish Warmblood! Raising funds to secure the future of a unique classical horsemanship project. For the last 25 years, Yardah Equeste Stud (YES), pioneered by Marjorie Armstrong, has been developing a new breed of horses: the Spanish Warmblood. They are now looking for supporters to bring this project to life by launching a crowd funding campaign on Monday 23 of June at Indiegogo.com Join the YES team. Why a new breed? “Hybrid vigour of a crossbreeding becomes lost after the first generation, unless the genetics are set with line breeding.” As a result of Marji’s years of training horses and riders around the world in the art of classical horsemanship, YES wanted to create an alternative breed suitable for dressage, jumping and classical equestrian art. In other words, a horse showing outstanding balance between physical build, movement, soundness, sensitivity, generosity and willingness. The first progeny produced the template for a horse able to achieve the characteristics above. How was this achieved? Inspired by the developing of the Australian Merino & Corriedale sheep, Yardah’s ambitious genetic research programme has been skilfully crafting a new pure breed of horses. The answer lay in merging Andalusian and Thoroughbred genetics through line […]

Benefits of equine therapy for troubled teens

The bonds that connect animals and humans are often described in glowing terms: “healing,” “touching” even “life-altering.” And when troubled teens – those with behavioral or emotional challenges that significantly impede their progress – are matched with horses, the therapeutic value of these interactions can become particularly powerful. By some accounts, troubled teens are often in a constant state of aggression, defiance or anger and all too often a vicious circle comes into play. Chemicals are released into their bodies as these “negative” emotions escalate and this release subsequently raises the level of these passions to an even higher pitch. At that point, they might begin spiraling out of control. Because it boosts the amount of endorphins in their system, horse therapy can help these young people bring their chemical balance back into control. And once that starts to happen, teens are positioned to benefit from spending time with their equine friends. Horses cannot speak, or at least they cannot speak in the way we humans do. But they can still manage to make themselves clearly understood by alert bystanders who decode their body language. As they stand in their stalls, they might be signaling that they are relaxed. Or, […]

Review of Beyond Horse Massage DVD by Jim Masterson

This is a review of the DVD, Beyond Horse Massage by Jim Masterson. One of the facts of modern life is that it is usually stressful, for humans and horses. Jim Masterson has developed a unique method of equine body work that helps release built up stress by working with and listening to the horse.  In this DVD Jim has put together a set of simple lessons to help you learn to do the same. With this DVD you can learn to help relieve your horse of tension which left untreated could lead to pain and bad performance. Through simple lessons you will learn to recognize the responses of your horse to your touch to help release tension in key body areas that most affect work performance. Partnership in healing I like that the lessons show you clearly how to work with your horse in a safe and gentle manner. For most of the work on your horse you don’t need to use much pressure. Most of the pressure used with your fingers and hands is very light. That means that even some of us older horse owners can put this method into practice even if we don’t have a […]

Virtual book tour for the Horse Lover A Cowboy’s Quest to Save the Wild Mustangs

The Horse Lover By H. Alan Day Thank you to ALove4Horses for hosting me on this virtual book tour celebration for the ‘Horse Lover: A Cowboy’s Quest to Save the Wild Mustangs’. I look forward to interacting with your audience and welcome their comments or questions. A little more than ten years ago, my sister, Sandra Day O’Connor, and I co-authored a memoir called Lazy B, about growing up on our family’s southwestern cattle ranch. If you look closely, you’ll see my name below Sandra’s; it has progressively grown smaller over the years. And rightly so. Well, I figured if I wrote half a book, I could write an entire book. I had a story stuffed in my back pocket that I was eager to share with horse people as well as ranchers, animal lovers, and anyone interested in a good adventure tale. The story was about creating the first government-sponsored wild horse sanctuary and caring for 1500 wild mustangs over four years. Yep, that’s what I did after purchasing a gorgeous South Dakota ranch. It was the third ranch I owned and needed it about as much as I needed a permanent migraine. But it lured me in with […]

New Horse Book Racing to Heaven

Racing to Heaven The horses in this book go galloping through the pages, as they display great athleticism. But do they really leap over fences that are treacherously high or race at breakneck speed towards the finish line? Or, are they simply the product of the narrator’s vivid imagination? Teen age girls like here are, after all, prone to dramatizations. Some readers will argue for the first interpretation, while others might favor the latter. But those who simply enjoy the read will probably be selecting the best option. A little bit about the book author: Harriet Tramer has spent more years than she might care to remember working as both a journalist and a college instructor. Most recently, she has taken her journalist ventures on line, having her own blog http://htramer.com And she has also been doing a radio show on bbsradio entitled “Reaching for the Gold.” This program deals with aging, but that term is interpreted as broadly as possibly to create a wide interest. This book – Racing to Heaven – represents her first major foray into fiction writing. However, she has also written a text – Rounding the Circle of Love: Growing Up As She Grows Old […]
