2012 was a great year for RFI/SS with the best campers and interns we’ve ever had. 2013 already promises to be equally as good. Interns are already signing up for summer horse camp and the colleges have locked into many dates this Winter and Spring. RFI/SS will be doing more off-site trips with the horses as we focus on training more of the herd. The interns have a lot to look forward to. We’ve been asked to take over the equine portion of the Horse and Hound Festival as well.

EQUINE TIP: Remember every horse takes it cue from the rider and the most common mistake is failure of the rider to convey the command in a manner it can understand. Therefore, most issues are from the rider not the horse. So, if you have cued your horse three or more times without a response; stop/rest a moment and then try another cue.
HORSE FACT AND/OR TRIVIA: White feet are inferior.
Most horses have dark-colored feet. A horse with a white leg markings can have a white hoof. Some horsemen believe that white hooves tend to be less lardy subject to chipping.
