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
Starting horses under saddle have been a question many people and trainers have asked for years. There are many benefits to starting a horse before the age of three, but greater drawbacks as well. A horse at the age of three is not skeletally mature enough to carry the weight of a human without major side effects. The growth plates in the vertebrae and in the knees of horses have not yet completely fused (Franz, et al 1). Starting a horse after the age of three decreases the risk of bowed tendons, sprained spines, and the deformation of the carpal bones in the knee.
The world of a rodeo animal is said to be bad, but really is not all bad. Yes, I understand that it is not all good. There are some bad apples in every tree. Some people would say that we made them mean and mad to get a good show, but really we don’t. Like “bunking horses are just horse that love to buck, they come from racetrack, feed lots, ranches, and just about everything equine.” So, how do we “breed” them to buck if they do it because they loved to do it we just take what they love to do and put it to use? PETA wants to say that the spurs cut and injure the horses, but the reality is that all most of them are not sharp. Yes, they wear them but not to hurt the animal. I wear spurs when I do my barrel racing but that does me I have to use
They have existed for over 5,000 years. They are one of the oldest purebred horses. They are known for their shape and appearance. They are very fast horses and they excel in the endurance races. They have on fewer vertebrae and rib then your common horse. An Arabian is a very small thin-like horse, which causes their tail to sit really high. Their bones are much smaller than the average horse, which causes them to have more health problems. Unlike the Quarter Horse, they take a lot longer to train. One reason being their bones are so small so they don’t mature as fast. Another being that they have more energy. There are only five colors of Arabians. They are also one solid
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.
Horse racing is a highly controversial topic in the equestrian world. Many people find horse racing as a great form of entertainment, while others see it as borderline abusive to the horse. Personally, I agree with the latter statement.
The theory of evolution has been discussed, evaluated, and researched many times since the theory was first brought to light. Darwin’s theory of evolution is said to be divided into two parts, common decent and natural selection (Bouzat, 2014). Many research papers agreeing with Darwin’s theory comment on the diversity of a species and how they have descended from one common ancestor. Natural selection is a process in which species that are better adapted to the environment tend to survive and reproduce (Dictonary.com). Natural selection is seen in the finches that Darwin studied on the Galapagos Islands. Environment and food supply changes caused the finches beaks to adapt in a unique way. Studies on Darwin’s finches show us that natural selection in a natural environment is interpretable, observable, and repeatable (Grant, 2003). Natural selection is representable in different types of birds such as the Island Scrub-jay. A study published in 2015 on these Island Scrub-Jays (Aphelocoma insularis) demonstrates examples of natural selection. The Cambrian explosion argues against Darwin’s theory of natural selection. It
Rodeo is one of the oldest sports to exist in the United States; with the first rodeo being held in Cheyenne, Wyoming in 1872. Baseball is the only sport older than it. Today, many people and organizations are trying to shut down rodeo because they claim it is cruel to animals. The sport of rodeo is not cruel to animals through the care and treatment of the livestock and performance horses.
The climate and it's different variable had many effects on the evolution of primates. It's obvious that when the weather changes, migration is necessary. When the weather changed, primates had to migrate, causing adaption to different environments. With each migration, new habitats were exposed to primates, giving them new ways of life. Enviornment change exposes new foods and new living accomidations. So, with the weather changes, primates most likely migrated to new habitats, exposing them to new living accommodations. Thus, weather change help the evolution of primates by forcing them to adapt to new surroundings and learn different ways to survive and successfully continue to evolve as a whole. Different social groups of primates had different
When I out grew my Shetland pony, my mother and I decided it was time to start looking for a horse for me to continue my riding career on. We had no idea at that time, that horse would be a starving, broke to only the basics, and a recent failure of a pre-purchase veterinarian exam, due to an injury to his fetlock. When we went to meet Hank, who was eventually renamed to Juble, I knew immediately that he was the horse for me, my mom wasn’t as convinced. Much like myself, my mom has a huge heart for animals, especially the ones in harmful environments, which means after minimal begging, she agreed to purchase Juble. This began the long process of helping him put on more weight, helping his swollen fetlock heal, and gaining his trust. This was six years ago, and I’m proud to say that Juble and I are two-time State
Do you want an environment crisis to happen? Do you know what causes it? Do you know what it is and what will happen? Heat trapping gasses such as carbon dioxide, methane, pollutants. There are also fossil fuels, primarily coal, petroleum, and natural gases. There are droughts, floods, acidifying oceans, dissolving coral reefs, and faltering plankton stocks caused by those things (745). All of these things can and will cause a devastating crisis in the world. The past, present, and the future have and will be exposed and affected by all of those things. Some of the insects we need now to take care of this earth and to help the animal and human population survive, may not be here in the future. The animals are getting affected by the environmental
Breaking a horse is not something that you can do in one day. There is a list of things that you should do in order to get a successful horse. Whether you raised the horse or bought one at a auction, there will always be some complications in the training process. Here are some tips to training a horse successfully.
The American Paint Horse is a specific breed of a horse valued for their daring markings, color, and figure. People have numerous ways of telling apart Paints from the other different types of horse breeds. One of the ways of knowing if the horse is a Paint is by looking at the markings. Some of the markings include Tobiano, Overo, Tovero, and Solid Paint Horses; each of the horses come innumerable amounts of color. Horses come in several different types of families like the Black and Red Family. Another way to tell the difference between the countless breeds of horses is by their figure. The Paint horse is a combination of a Western Stock Horse and a Pinto spotting. The American Paint Horse is not only known for their markings and
“Courage is being scared to death but saddling up anyways.” – John Wayne. Riding horses can always be a terrifying or calm moment, depending on the horse you ride. I have had many scary moments riding horse, one being breaking my wrist. There is nothing more enjoyable than rising early, saddling your horse, and watching the sun rise. Did you know horses have one of the best memories and are the most perceptive domestic animals? This is why people would call me a nerd in horses because I can name off facts. (thesis statement)
