Horses and Veterans

Posted by

When observing a moment of silence to remember our veterans on November 11 each year don't forget to think about the contribution horses and other equids made during all the major wars since humans domesticated them.

During those wars, horses were used for riding, transporting equipment, pulling ambulances, reconnaissance, delivering arms and ammunition, and, of course, serving on the front lines until the use of automatic weapons rendered them obsolete in that capacity.

In total, more than 1 million horses and mules served for Britain alone in World War I, with only a fraction surviving (a mere 67,000). Equine deaths were attributed to disease, exhaustion, injury and artillery fire, poisonous gas, and starvation.

Not only do we thank our veterans but we thank the horses, donkeys, and mules who made the ultimate sacrifice for our great country.



Each product in the Barrel Racing Superstore is backed by my personal design or endorsement.

All are products that I incorporate into my training, equine care, management programs, and/or western lifestyle. The items made available here have been selected, not only for their quality and effectiveness, but also for their value.

I remain committed to making a difference-one life, one rider, and one horse-at a time. This is my personal promise to both my students and customers.

Thank you for your trust. Happy Horsemanship!
