Despooking the Trail Horse

When riding in the back country having a calm, reliable horse or mule is key. Getting your horse to that point can be a process, one commonly known as "despooking". Which is the process of desensitizing your horse to objects he may find scary, or spooky out on the trail. The following is an article exert written by Stan Walchuck Jr. for 'Horse Journals.com'. "Horses find a surprising number of ways to spook. Some do not like white rocks, some do not like black stumps or roots, some are terrified of vehicles and bicycles, some freak out at a chocolate bar wrapper or a pop can, and others are just paranoid of everything. Some horses seem to have moods when they ignore an object one day, then become convinced that it will be the death of them the next.First of all, we need to remind ourselves that we are working…

A Celebration of BC Parks Day

Well hello there friends! Let me introduce myself, I'm Jerry. Jerry the Moose to be exact. And it is my immense pleasure to show you around my humble abode today and let you meet my friends. I've been told I'm pretty outgoing and friendly, but truthfully I tend to be a bit shy. The Rangers at Manning Park keep wanting to show me off and let little humans come up and shake my hooves which I find is the silliest thing, but I'm getting ahead of myself already. Forgive me, let me start over. I have made Manning Park my home ever since I was a young calf. Growing up tall and strong, making it my goal to befriend as many visitors to the Park as I can over the years. The Rangers here are my family, taking me on adventures, camping out in the forest, and making sure I…
The Pemberton Valley Chapter of Back Country Horsemen started as a result of the Friendship Bridge that is going to be built between Mt. Currie and Pemberton. There was an article in the local paper that said horses may or may not be allowed on the new bridge, because of costs! So Brenda Williams (the Treasurer for the Pemberton Chapter) wrote a letter to the local paper addressing the problem.  The response she was given by the Mayor of Pemberton was that the horses would be included. In wanting to have a voice for recreational horse users, four horse people went to the GM for the PVTA (Pemberton Valley Trails Association) and were nominated to sit on the Board alongside other recreation users such as bikers, hikers and walkers. Creating a platform for the voice of horseback riders to be heard, and to get some horse friendly trails back in the community.  They…

Fun Fact Friday

Equus Caballus, the mammal so near and dear to our hearts. The one who you gracioulsy spend your money on, eats you out of house and home, and last but not least makes you pick up after him. In more average language...the horse. Take a look below and read up on some interesting facts that just might surprise you! Horses have bigger eyes than any other mammal that lives on land Until the 1960’s Dartmoor ponies were used to escort prisoners from local prisons while they were on outside duties Horses with pink skin can get a sunburn When a horse raises his head and pulls his lips back, cocking his head to the side he is doing what is called flehmen. Flehmen is known to be a way to direct scents in the air to specialized glands at the end of the nasal passage. So he's not smiling, rather…
