The one extracurricular activity that has become a main priority in my life is my horses and barrel racing. Riding horses has become a stress reliever and a favorite pass time. It has become not only a sport, but a lifestyle. I began riding when I was only three years old. My mother bought me my very first pony and taught me how to ride. Ever since that day, and many, many horses later, I have been passionate about horses. I began going to local fun shows, where I would show in mainly pleasure classes. It gave me a great foundation of how to ride a horse correctly. I won many awards on my pleasure horse and really enjoyed doing it, but as I got older, I began to have a need for speed. With this being said, I started entering the speed classes. My

Rodeo Mornings The sound of the alarm clock going off and the sound of the horses neighing is what most of us hear every morning. The rodeo life isn’t for everyone, some people don’t seem to realize how hard it is. Rodeo mornings are always crazy,we got so much to do in so little time. The beginning of a busy weekend consists of, getting up at the crack of dawn to get the horses fed, and gathering up all the equipment/ tack and making sure we have everything we need because there is no time to turn around if we forgot something.
I have a lot of experience with horses, but my favorite thing is that feeling you get when you whip around a barrel as fast as you can… almost as if you’re flying. You really feel that when you barrel race. Barrel racing has not always been around. Basically, you run as fast as you can on horseback around three barrels in a clover leaf pattern and try to finish with the fastest time. My favorite part of barrel racing is the history of how it grew and became so popular, and just arrangement of the rules and how every little detail is planned out. There are certain women who made barrel racing not only their passion, but their career, too.
The first of these campaigns arose from the 'Warburton Ranges controversy ' when the report of a select committee, which inquired into the state of Aborigines, was tabled in the Western Australian parliament in December 1956. For a month it attracted no attention, but on 9 January 1957 the Sydney Communist Party newspaper, Tribune, described the report as ripping aside 'the screen that has veiled the cruel plight to which our Governments condemn Australian Aborigines '. According to this report, malnutrition, blindness and disease, abortion, infanticide, burns and other injuries were all commonplace among the Wongi people of the Warburton Ranges region. The mainstream newspapers across the country took up the story with headlines such as

Surgeries have become a routine process.Around fifteen million surgeries are performed a year. They put you under anesthesia, they operate, and you wake up with a little discomfort.

On that day Crawford Long single handedly change the course of medicine, but what led up to that pivotal point of his life?
The relationship between humans and horses throughout history has consistently followed the same types of patterns. Some people see horses as sweet companions to bond with, while others see them as work animals. However, the one idea that needs to be grasped by every person is that horses need proper training. My argument is that horses need to be taught manners based on how horses naturally establish a pecking order in a herd. This type of training is called “Natural Horsemanship”. Natural Horsemanship is the best training method because it establishes safety and a good relationship between the horse and handler.
