The Central Coast is where it’s at for High School Rodeo especially when it comes to Team Roping as the 2015 State Champions live, ranch and train here. Come meet two High School Rodeo riders as Sharon Jantzen takes a peek into their busy lives.
We have been ushered into fire season here on the Central Coast, and everyone is aware of the extremely dry conditions. Currently we are experiencing warm dry weather which increases the chance of wild fires, as shown by the many fires blazing across the west right now. So the question is not IF but WHEN a wild fire breaks out where you live or board your animals; will you be prepared? Sharon Jantzen asked H.E.E.T. of San Luis Obispo county for information on how to prepare for a fire.
Looking for a place where you can watch horse and rider pairs work on Reined Cow Horse activities, enjoy lunch and hang out with some pretty fun people who are all passionate about their sport…and horses and cows? Look no further than the Mankins Performance Horse cattle ranch in Arroyo Grande. Sharon Jantzen shares her experience doing just that.
What is that little Thoroughbred foal’s fate if he doesn’t run, or when he is through giving his heart and body for an attempt at those “roses”? The answer is a bit chilling, and known all too well by CANTER USA , an organization that has successfully placed over 20,000 Off the Track Thoroughbreds (better known as OTTB’s) with new owners who have re-purposed these sleek and athletic animals. Sharon Jantzen tell us how you could join in the dance with a new OTTB equine partner.
It’s something inexplicable…that almost surreal moment when you first look into the eyes of a horse that you know beyond a shadow of a doubt will be your best friend. Grasping the essence of a horse upon first view is like love at first sight; it’s rare, but it does happen. It happened to me. Sharon Jantzen pays tribute to her horse who impacted her life with kindness and sensitivity.
