Ride Your Own Ride
Have you ever been frustrated with your riding because you think you should be better by now? Have you succumbed to the temptation to compare yourself with another rider, and wondered why you can't ride like that? What do they have that I don't? Or maybe you had a trainer get on your horse when he was acting like a monster, only to see the horse immediately transform into putty in their hands. It's frustrating—I get it. In today's episode, I'm going to talk about how you can ride your own ride and focus on the journey.

Doc Gunner: Genetic Deep Dive Part 2
Last time, we talked about the genetic profile of Doc Gunner (who we now call "Doc") regarding his unusual coloration, his deafness, his health conditions, and his behavioral traits. It's fascinating information, and it's invaluable for us in terms of managing his health. In this episode, we're going to discuss Doc's ancestry report—how we can find out more about his real pedigree, find some close relatives of his, and possibly even figure out who his sire and dam are. Plus, we'll talk about how DNA testing works, all of the exciting research being done in this field, and how you might learn more about your horse through DNA testing.

Doc Gunner: Genetic Deep Dive Part 1
Today's episode is about the genetic profile test report for my 4-year-old foster horse, Doc Gunner. We have no history on this horse prior to December of his 3-year-old year. Given that we know nothing about this horse's breeding or history, it was important to me to get as much data as I could so I can more effectively give him the rehab and training he needs to be successful for the rest of his life. I'm really excited to have two expert guests in the field of genetic testing and equine veterinary medicine, Christa Lafayette, founder and CEO of Etalon Diagnostics, and Dr. Ben Buchanan from the Brazos Valley Equine Hospital. Join us as we review the full genetic report on Doc Gunner and his unusual genetic traits. We'll get answers to some medical questions we've had, and how we'll manage this horse going forward. Plus, we'll talk about his unique temperament and character, how that relates to his performance potential, and how that is evident in his genes.

Evaluating the Unknown Horse
Often, the history of the horse does not follow him throughout his life—maybe you bought a horse at an auction, maybe you rescued an abandoned horse, or were given a horse—but, for whatever reason, you end up with this horse, and zero history on him. So what do you do now? How do you move forward from there? Is he trained or untrained? What's he like to handle? I'll discuss these questions and more in this month's episode. Plus, as always, we have some new questions for What the Hay? Q&A!

Horses That Rip & Run
Today's topic is about dealing with horses that rip and run. I'll talk about this dangerous behavior, what it looks like, how it develops, and situations where it's likely to happen. We'll look at what this behavior means—why the horse does it, and how he benefits. Fortunately, most horses never learn how to overpower people and get away, but once it's been learned, it can't really be unlearned, and it makes the horse particularly difficult to handle. Whether or not you have a horse with this problem, you're going to want to listen to find out how to mitigate the issue, and prevent it before it becomes a problem.
