Next Tuesday April 19 at 6 pm I will return to one of the main online gathering places for the equine community on FaceBook. That's Judge my Ride, of course, but I'm coming back with a "twist." I will be joined in studio by the wizards of Equine Myofasial Release (see my Links page).

Jan Tracy and Tamara Rapier are going to explain this emerging (yet ancient) holistic approach to treating the "entire horse" rather than depending on "take 2 whatevers... and try him again in the morning"!!! Long-term use of NSAIDS not only are a temporary "fix," they also can mask those mystery lameness and stiffness that prevent your horses from being all they can be "naturally"

I'm telling you, these girls know their stuff and we'll begin with an explanation of the process, followed by an OPEN LINE where you can ask about those often undiagnosed "quirks," from dropped hips to bad teeth that can manifest in all kinds of ways guaranteed to ruin your horse's day. So sign on Judge my Ride on Tuesday April 19 9pm East Coast Time, 6pm West Coast, and have a question ready.

These gals travel from Wellington to Thermal to Europe, with stops in between. They "do" people too, so with luck you just might see them coming to a town near you!!!

Kevin McGinn Stables - Horse Sales and Training - Los Angeles CA, Tuesday, April 20, 2010

I recently had the honor to be tapped to host JMR's page, Thursday night Trival Pursuit presently being presented on Facebook by Jennifer Parsons and Noelle King with "R" rated judges Carol Dean Porter and Rob Gage.

This is a just-for-fun evening that goes out on Judge My Ride's Facebook page at 9pm Eastern time (6pm Pacific time). It's a great way to reminisce about equestrian heroes and equine stars of yesterday, and to teach the kids about equine theory.

It's a fast-moving stream of questions of the historic events of all disciplines; dressage, foxhunting, show jumping, polo and racing.

So join me or even better send me your most coveted questions to my private page on Facebook or visit the contact page of my website.

See Ya Thurs !!!!!! Be There / be Square !!!!!!!!!!

Kevin McGinn Stables - Horse Sales and Training - Los Angeles CA, Wednesday, March 3, 2010

One of my newest finds...and favorite things to do, is playing Equestrian Trivia served up by none other than Jennifer Parsons and her side-kick Noelle!

This is a weekly event that has quickly become an obsession of mine: every Thursday evening from 6pm-8pm Pacific time! What better way to sharpen your equine "theory," reminisce, or battle the wits of pros like Dianne Grod, Carol Dean Porter, and countless other trivia masters??
Great fun on these cold winter nights!!!!!!

Don't think it's a "walk in the park" -- Jenn digs DEEP into the history of our sport,
testing young and old alike with name that horse/rider/pony, and horse show rules ad infinitum.

The competition is fierce and it captures something I feel is lost in today's Horse Show world. It conjures up magic moments, forgotten heroes, and the excitement that comes from the love of the sport. It's a great way to re-connect with friends from all over the country as it resides on FACEBOOK on the “Judge My Ride” page AND the Price is right (FREE )!!!!

It's just a nice example of having simple fun, kind of like what we did in "THE OLD DAYS."
A warning -- these girls take their "trivia" DEAD SERIOUS!!! Check it out!!!

Every Thursday, 6pm-8pm Pacific time
Facebook/ Judge my Ride

You can also submit photos and video clips to be critiqued by the one and only
Rob Gage -- Check It OUT !!!!
