Today is the first blog entry for the new site! I can't wait to send word out to all my friends about the new sight. I am excited to embrace my passion for what I can offer others. It is not about me, it is about what I can do for others. I don't want to be the winner, I don't want to be at the top, but I want clients to be winners. I want them to LOVE their horses. I love all 21 of my horses!

WOW... what a great day... I got an email from the first lady booking two mares to Chex for 2012. As well as loaded up 3 Chex babies and hauled them to Lewiston to ride Hells Gate State park! It was a great ride along the trails, loping and troting, and then some river riding. Today also brought a new mare to our broodmare band. Her barn name is Mocha. She is an AQHA Bay mare that will be producing some super barrel and rope horses. I can't say enough about the GREAT feed back I am getting from those whom own Chex babies. I am putting this one in from a proud owner of a Chex baby that we raised, he has been a 4H horse, rodeo royality horse and trail horse for the mom! A horse for all the needs!
Riding a Chex baby will make you feel so many things!

Another GREAT day riding. Midge took me and Carloyn out Gofl Course. We got to lope some and long trot. It felt sooooo good. I love that mare. She has the best big walk, she covers the ground. She is truly a blessing. The other day I was coming back from feeding the herd, and I recall looking at the horses out there, all those Chex babies and I can remember thinking WHY am I keeping all these babies... and NOW I know. I have them cause they BRING ME great joy!

Notty is outside running around my herself barking and running circles and Hooey is watching her and then looking over his shouler at me like, Mom, she is CRAZY! I know we have our main focus on our horses, but I am amazed at our great dogs. The phone guy came the other day he had moved near here from Texas and he seen Hooey and said, " you wouldn't mind if I stole that dog would you?" he noted his great conformation, his true links to the old time healers. I am so happy to know we have quality horses, quality dogs, and offer quality training and lessons. Makes me smile! Have a great day friends, family and clients new and old!

The horses are begging for dry ground. Kody is still spending time in the barn and Middy is next to him. I got to make another dream come true by spending a weekend with 11 kids of Wallowa County, we went with their families to Hermiston Horse sale. It would have been better if I could have been healthy, but it was pretty good to take the kids to the sale, and walk them around and show them how the sale works, and teach them skills for judging. We got to watch the sale and then took in some big time swimming at Wild Horse Resort for the evening. Sunday we went back for round two! A new client bought a horse for his daughter. It was fun to get to help them with the blanket, polo wraps and more. His name is Jasper and he is a beautiful sorrel gelding with a huge heart. And his new owner "Whit" loves him. She had a grin ear to ear. An idea was asked of me today... so I would like to hear your thoughts..... Would you like to see a page on the site for interactive training tips, judging tips and riding tips?

The sun is out and the horses are resting in the field. It is a joy to see them enjoying their time and their home. We have been busy sending out breeding contracts and training contracts things are starting to get busy. Soon foaling season will be here. We have 3 babies coming this year. We have Allie in foal to an outside stallion, Dee is bred to Jigalow and this will be the last Jigalow baby ever. Then we have Gracie in foal to Chex. We have mares to breed to Chex new ones for the ranch and then we will be breeding Grace back, and maybe Fancy. I am sure Dee will be bred back to Chex. And then we will have Allie and Mocha to bred to Chex also. Your mare should join the ranks!

The week has brought several rides so far with more to come. I have been working our horse Kyra and getting her some more ground work. As well I have also been working with Mickey. She is amazing, we rode through town and she was not bothered by anything. And then I decided to take a jumping clinic, what that means.... RIDING ENGLISH!!! YES, me whom has not done that in years. I have been riding Jigalow and can't wait to see how we do! We are working on consistence gaits, and holding the rhythm through the ground poles, and straight lines.
I had a question come up last week, and I thought I would write this short FOOD for THOUGHT: When you go out and your horse walks away or maybe when you ride they are not acting like they normally do, think maybe they are not feeling well, are they current on shots, wormer? Have you had your horses teeth floated? How is the farrier doing with your horse's feet? Just like with people horses when their bodies hurt they will not feel well or perform well. That means all the things to keep your horse healthy matters. Does your hay provide quality of nutrients? Do they need a supplement? Another thing to consider if you are riding when the horse has not gotten to eat they may have attitude cause horses are use to eating all the time so in the winter when we feed in feedings then they may have some attitude that is fine. Horses too like people have the right to have bad days or weeks, we just can't allow them to be mean or ugly. So, make sure you are still the lead horse in your horses world but allow them time to not feel well.

Friday was a great day in Wallowa County, took a trail ride around the slope area with two good friends! Then at 6 went to ride with another we both ride Chex babies and we practice jumping. Then today Jeffrey and I went on trail ride with Midge. We went up Wade Gulch on Mickey, Tigerlilly and Kyra. Then headed to a jumping clinic at 2 watched the session before us and then it was our turn. I was so happy with the Chex babies, and really loved riding one! I am so excited to see how they did! What a dream come true to see these great horses that can do so many things: trails, drill team, moving cattle, parades, western, english, jumping, barrels, roping and more! For young and old! I can't say how great they are and I realize most don't believe me till they have owned one or seen one in action! But, I promise you they are AMAZING! We have donated a breeding to the Enterprise Education Foundation dinner and auction to save the art program so if you are interested in breeding to Chex in 2012 don't miss this chance to make a dream come true horse as well as help out a school program!

Well the weather sure reminded us she is in CONTROL! Sunny on Saturday and today wind and snow. Sunday my new 4H club the Rusty spurs braved the weather and came out to Char Williams arena near Joseph and we had 5 juniors on horses... my laugh was about the horses were the OLD ones, they are wise and took care of my kids. The kids all learned to loung horses for respect. Then we did some showmanship, then we did rail work and then I let them have their free time! It was great to see the kids laughing and smiling! I found this on the internet today and it seemed soooo true. Dream big dreams and the funny thing is that against all the odds, those dreams will come true!

I have a facebook page for Dun the Right Way Horses and on that page ( Dun the Right Way Horses-Custom Training)came this question from an owner. If you have questions or training concerns you can either email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or fb message me.
Can you address horses that pin their ears and when you correct them and when you just let it go? For example, my sweet Zoey seems to always have her ears pinned, even when she is just hanging out getting brushed and when she is eating with the other horses that are higher up in the herd rank. I don't know when she is just hanging out or when she is being naughty. Can you help me figure it out?
I would be happy to.... usually naughty ears are close to the body/neck and have more than just pinned ears. And they will learn from the other horses how to act. So if pasture mates are naughty to her she will try it with others and you. S...o, if in question when you have her caught if she acts to be pinning---- move her feet with energy and then go back to letting her stand and bush her. Almost like nothing happened. Doing this several times will make her think every time my ears pin my feet get moved. She will learn, but like with Mickey she puts her ears back alot and she is listening... it is different with each horse. If you feel she is being naughty move her feet. If you are not sure move her feet. It won't hurt her to learn total respect. But at the same time try to read her WHOLE body language and what your body or other horses are telling her!

Sorry it has been so long since I dropped in! It has been a busy month. We have moved horses to feedlot so that hay pasture could come up. We have went on some amazing trail rides with great horses and super friends. We have gotten great rides with the kids. The Rusty Spurs club kids have been busy, they had a trail ride the first weekend of spring break and then spring judging where they all did great. I am so proud of them. We had some ups and downs. Kody seems to be rebounding from his leg injury and is back out in the field, then Kyra got hurt and we are doctoring her. It will be a long road for her, she will not be able to be ridden this year. We are waiting for the foals of 2012 to start coming. I have been riding some training horses as well as working my own as well. Lessons are kicking up, and we ready for the warmer weather to come.
Please send us your questions if you have any in regards to horses, training, ownership or anything.

Today started out with chores, signing record books for one of my kids in the 4H club, then off caring for someone else horses we are caring for, then home to work with training horses and give lessons. We rode the pony today, I was sooo proud of my son for making the first ride on him. He has such talent and yet doesn't like to ride that much. Dez had a friend over and then went out and caught Sugar by themselves and then they saddled her up and went to the arena aloneand rode for over an hour. I was so proud of my little girl today too! She is a cowgirl in the making! Our young lady from Idaho that is here to learn she rocked today, in the round pen with horses. She also got really sun burnt. The training horses are coming along GREAT! I love my job!

She was gonna sell a horse there but got her sold prior to the sale. She was looking at buying a horse. Saturday prices were terrible cheap great for buyers bad for sellers, Sunday we heard they were better.

We welcomed home another new addition to the ranch. An APHA gelding named Dakota. He is a big boy that has had his feet sucked down and his heels brought in. We have pulled his shoes trimmed excess heel off and he is out in the field. We will give him a couple weeks and on March 8 or 9th Emily will be here to work on him. We will hope he will be able to find his soundness and be the amazing rope, team penning ranch horse he was! He is a lover! And seems to enjoy the sunshine of eastern Oregon. Can't wait to see what he is like when he is feeling good.
Hooey had his first girlfriend and we learned more about dog breeding. We are excite that Hooey will soon be the dad to some puppies. She is a beautiful red heeler from above Seattle and she was a gem to have around super smart and willing. Reece our mini red heeler was a bit nose out of joint but it all went well.

Feb. 28, 2013
The end of Month 2 of 2013
I have lived my life in the horse world... I have worked hard to be well known for what I do.. I have not won any WORLD titles, I have NOT won big shinny buckles in a long time, or bronzes/title, I don't have my own tv show, and most probably don't know me by name! BUT I have... I HAVE helped young people reach their goals, I have helped aged people have their dream horses, dreams reached, I have trained some GREAT horses for all levels. I have raised some great horses that have gone out and DONE truly amazing things in roping, barrels, youth (4H), reining, and all other things. Tonight I will realize once again my happiness in the horse industry does NOT come from my wins but when I can help others feel Happiness! My life is complete! I am very happy with the things I have DONE in my LIFE and will continue to do in my life!
I was given this great gift last fall after county fair- said " You are the the missing piece of my puzzle" and it was a puzzle piece. I love it. Seeing others reach their dreams with some help makes me feel alive!
March came in like a lamb so we have been busy riding horses and brushing horses and getting ready for foaling season! We are excited to see what we will have on the ground. We have Chex's sister bred to a Bay AQHA Stallion and then our new Blue Roan mare is bred to Homo Black and White APHA stallion. And then all new bred to Chex's mare- Ally- Bay AQHA, Dee-Red Dun AQHA, Mickey Sorrel- APHA, and Mocha Bay-AQHA. We will have amazing rope, reining and barrel horses and some all around ones as well!
We have a few still for sale Hitch a 2 year old AQHA Palomion Chex Gelding and his full brother 2012 Smutty Dun AQHA Gelding.
I have been busy riding my Chex babies took Kyra jumping. She has recovered from her injury and her reining training is making jumping a challenge but we are enjoying it both of us. I was able to get on Kody again after over a full year off since he broke a hind leg last winter. He was ALOT of horse today but still ponied Babydoll off him and had a good ride with her.
Tomorrow brings lessons and riding more! I have been riding about 3 a day and they are all mine and that is a GREAT feeling!
April 5, 2013
Today I learned people actually ready the blog. I had wondered if anyone ever check this out. So I will make ure I update it more and make sure that I let people know what is happening on the ranch.
I do update daily the facebook page https://www.facebook.com/pages/Dun-the-Right-Way-Horses-Custom-Horse-Training/193888443987930
I wanted to let you all know I am always here to contact via email.... email@example.com If you have questions about training, clothing or anything. I am here to help you out.
I thought we might post a few things for you to know what has been happening. This week we had the Enterprise Ag classes come out and judge horses. We put together a class of broodmares (poor girls fat and ready to pop) and then QH type mares since we had Sassy in the class- she has some spots and is an APHA! But we used Holly, Nala, Krya and Sassy and one day traded Nala out for Babydoll. The classes were interesting and so proud of our stock who stood tied and so good.
This is prego Ali running and keeping herself in shape! Helped her place in the top of the class!
A couple weeks ago we took Possi our last Jigalow baby on our ranch to meet her new owner, a senior in High school in Washington and she wants he to be her all around horse and rope horse. We had sat on Possi in the round pen back in Sept, and in Oct. we rode her ponied in arena once and since then she has sat in the field and been a horse, this young lady had stated to me she wanted to ride her in her senior ride in WSET Washington Equine team and I thought well she is not really been ridden. PLESAE see below the photos posted on the young ladies Facebook page... you will see that she will most likely be riding her tomorrow in the ride!!!
Possi in a rope lesson....Possi resting after a work out!
Possi getting her first rides.... Getting her MOVE on....
Tomorrow I will post from GREAT photos of some great times of Chex babies... and be ready for our 2013 foals. We will be doing a 48 hour special on foals that hit the ground you can put $500 down you will be able to get them for a great price of $1500 at weaning!
April 17th, 2013
What a great month. We had Cassi Soule come and last week and weekend. She gave lessons and did a clinic in dressage and jumping. She brought 3 warmbloods. They were amazing and TALL... 17.2 was the shortest!
This is Doc he is 17.3 hands 5 year old gelding. I got to ride him and we got to really know eachother. I really enjoyed them all.
Still getting updates on Possi, she is doing great things with her young highschool owner. She has her giving to the bridle and walk, trot and lope. She has hauled her to one event. She is now working on her getting use to ropes. I can't wait to see what their future brings. I love it when our horses go to GREAT homes that love them and get all they can out of their horses. I got to see 3 Chex babies Jump this week with Cassi and then jump again on Sunday for the Wallowa County 4h kids. Nala, Jigalow both owned by the ranch and then Lady one we raised and sold to Midge of Starbuck Ranch in Joseph.
We also welcomed in a new training horse named Blaze he is from Washington. He came from a gentleman that bought him for Kate of Krazy K Appys.She sent 2 horses last summer to us. We thank her for her support and her kudos on our training that she shared information that Blaze's owner could find us and know we could help him with his young horse. Blaze is 3.5 years old.
Blaze thought things in the round pen was SO WRONG!!!! But he soon learned I was gonna make him go over the barrels and the pole! He hates the tree of knowledge. He hates being tied!
We gelded Rolo Tuesday and have Chevy in now, she is pretty bagged up. I need to get the new mares on our website. I need more me! WE have some great mares added to the ranch. We have new geldings. I think it is time to get them all their own page. I will see what I can do about that.
I will be leaving Apri 30th till May 10th for the Great American Horse Drive http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6UeakNxUYVU
and you can see what I will be doing! I am so excited... tomorrow I will be riding somewhere I rode when I was a kid and I am so excited to get to ride again!!! Happy Trails all.I hope you are getting legged up so you can ride with us. We have extended the deadline for the Women's retreat to June 15th since I was gonna be playing. And we can take credit cards if you want to pay with a credit card and attend the women's retreat.
May 15th 2013
Sorry gang been gone so long.... I had a GREAT birthday on April 19th~ I got to take a super ride om April 18th with a GREAT friend on some land I had not ridden since I was a kid with my mom. So I loved that. I got to ride a super Chex baby. And then from the 19th to the 29th things were crazy getting ready to leave on the trip and breeding mares, waiting for mares to foal, riding training horses, and getting a new person that is riding a Chex baby use to her horse Kyra she is borrowing her for the summer. We took Bailey Dutcher who owns a Chex baby, she was getting ready for CJD rodeo queen tryouts and so we took Kody and Dakota out and showed her how to run hard and fast. On Sunday the 21st Jalyn had a Gaming clinic where he rode Rex they are a super team. Had some lessons to give during that time and even got a ride in with the 40 Something Cowgirl group of Wallowa County called the WOW- women of wonder... and took Blaze and rode with them at the rodeo grounds in Joseph. Good times. We hauled some horses out north to summer pasture.
While I was gone Jeffrey foaled some mares out, ok move than half. We have super foals on the ground in 2013 and they are all for sale! See the for sale page....
We brought in another horse on Sunday the 12th for training a black mare and she doesn't like boot camp. Blaze training horse from WA, hates boot camp he is 3 and learning that there is alot of things out there that some horses have to do, like go to brandings, cross ditches, move cows and then get up the next morning and do it all again!
For Mother's day I had the joy of my kids moving cows with me and seeing them ride off alone on safe sane horses made my whole day!
So how many of you want to know about the "HORSE Drive"? It was GREAT~ AMESOME~ AMAZING and loved it, so much fun and horse time. We got there on Wednesday and they had already gotten horses out, there was mine a big black draft mare, I called her baby, they didn't have a name for her. She was tight in her shoulders and I worked on that for her. She was super wide and I was worried she wouldn't be fast. Lord coudl that mare LONG TROT! The first day riding on Thursday you get on get a talking to about horsemanship and how to drive horses and then they take off with you at a lope trot or lope. It was crazy.
