KHC Horse Care 101 at
KSU College of Vet Medicine a Sellout!
A packed house at the 3rd Annual KHC Horse Care 101 equine clinic at the KSU College of Vet Medicine was treated to a morning with Julie Goodnight, host of RFD TV’s Horse Master. Goodnight was informative as she shared information on selecting the right bit and entertaining with her ‘unmounted exercises’ to help improve rider’s balance through position in the saddle.
After a box lunch and dozens of door prizes, the day continued with Denise Farris and Horse Sense and the Law, Dr. Randy Raub on horse nutrition, and Dr. Chris Blevins with Equine Dentistry.
Five workshops/ demonstrations wrapped up the day with more from Julie Goodnight, a saddle fitting demo, equine dermatology, a farrier demo, and an equine emergency response team demo. A big thank you to our generous sponsors and their part in making this whole day possible!

January Rescue of the Month
Hope in the Valley Equine Rescue:
- Boromir – a solid paint gelding would be a great horse for an intermediate rider! He is 15-1 and born in 2000. Due to a leg injury, he is not a candidate for barrel racing or speed events. Boromir has been ridden extensively with a hackamore and is ready for his forever home.
Did You Get Yours?
As of January 1, Kansas’ first equine specialty license plate is available from your County! Get one for your truck and your car, and it’s the first specialty plate that can even be put on your trailer. Thanks so much to KHC Board Member Dennis Goodwin for getting this accomplished! This KHC license plate was designed by Kansas City artist, John Keeling. If you don’t see it displayed with the other specialty plates at your county office, ask for it!

Fall in the Flint Hills Trail Ride!
The Kansas chapter of Back Country Horsemen of America is one year old! Especially in travels to western states, riders see evidence of the work BCHA does to keep public trails open to equestrians. It’s not uncommon to head into a remote campground in Colorado, Wyoming, or New Mexico and find trails and corrals built by the local chapter.
Dues of $40/individual, $50/family include both Kansas and national memberships. Find out more about BCHA and read the Mission Statement at www.backcountryhorse.com.
One of the goals of BCHA-Kansas this year is to keep track of hours spent by volunteers across the state maintaining trails and keeping our public trails open. In 2014, trail volunteers have accumulated well over 1,000 hours and have raised several thousand dollars for Kansas public trails and camps that are open to equestrians!
Across the US, there are 13,000 BCHA members and chapters in 29 states! For a membership form or information, contact Steve Lindsey, email@example.com, or Jim Thomas, firstname.lastname@example.org.
