My One True Valentine

February 15th, 2017 by Simone Cobb

Love is in the air, everywhere I look around….

It’s February folks and expectations are high for you to show your loved ones that you really do love them! While spreading the love, do you shower special affection on your cat, your dog or your horse?

Did you know, three in four people celebrate their animal’s birthdays, so why not Valentine’s Day? In fact, according to a new study by the National Retail Federation, a total of $18.9 billion is spent on the holiday, with consumers dropping $703 million on their furry friends. Obviously for most, chocolate isn’t the answer, but there are plenty of ways you can show them how much they mean to you.

From diamond-studded collars to cat wall mazes, tempur pedic beds and homemade treats, every pooch, feline, and equine desire is catered for. Now, if you’re not in the market for diamonds, we have some great ideas for your horse listed below!

  • An apple a day (hand picked of course)
  • Cookies (apparently the best are ginger snaps and fig neutons)
  • Carrots broken and spread throughout their stall (so they can find little treats while stretching their legs)
  • Adding a splash of maple syrup to warm water during the winter
  • Monthly chiropractic massage sessions
  • A bucket of beet pulp
  • Alfalfa cubes soaked in warm water with oats
  • Make your own horse treats – click HERE to get recipes

But it’s not all for the horses! How do you show love to that special person in your life whose other love is a horse?

They Don’t Just Hula In Hawaii!

February 2nd, 2017 by Simone Cobb

By Bailey Bryan

Generally when one hears the word “Hawaii” there are visions of palm trees, drinking coconuts, warm beach, a red sunset, pineapples, luaus and of course hula dancing…so how do cutting horses fit? Think about it – no, really. How does an island get resources for such a complex sport that requires cattle, horses and land?

CHTO asked member and former Hawaiian cutter, Dee West, all about it. Dee relocated to Texas to be in cutting’s capital.

Though today there are many differences between cutting in Hawaii and other mainland areas, like Texas, West began cutting in Hawaii from 1971 through 1973, where she said the main difference was the cattle.

“Back then cattle weren’t so in-bred. Cattle were slower and easier to cut and hold,” West said. “Now you have faster, tough cows, but it’s hard to have fresh cattle in all classes.”

When West was cutting in Hawaii, there was only one class; however, even though the sport has grown, obtaining fresh cattle for everyone on an island can be quite difficult as well as not always possible.
Just to show in Hawaii, West would have to fly to the main island of Hawaii and then take a barge and at the time there were only two stables on Oahu.

Dee West cutting in Hawaii.

“Every weekend we would put our horses on a barge to different islands. It was so much fun, but a full day of showing,” West said.

Even though there was only one class for cutting then and there was no prize money, ribbons were enough of an incentive to spark the interests of most and continue to help the sport grow.

West stated that Hawaiians are known for their competitiveness and everyone wanted to win, making ribbons and bragging rights a valuable prize worth traveling and competing for.

During her time in Hawaii, West showed a palomino stallion named Skippers Count and together, they won pleasure, trail and cutting events. West credits her passion for horses and cutting to stem from her experiences on the big island.

Despite cutting not being as big a sport in Hawaii when West resided there, the idea of the sport became big as the years went on. As a more serious contender, West moved to the mainland to continue to compete but says she “feels blessed to have had the opportunity to learn about cutting” in Hawaii.
