Aftercare Spotlight:'Horses are the ultimate connections' - Horse Racing News
The horse is the ultimative connection. Last fortnight I did the South Dakota tour once again, with dear friend and other thoroughbred owner, advocate and enthusiast Dale Simanton and Dorothy Snowden of Gate to Great Wallachings, a shop that aims to train former racing ponies by just using them to live off the country.
At their 450 hectare Horse Creek Ranch (named after the brook - Horse Creek - which flows through them), they help them collect, sort and abseil down bovine animals to go out through the meadows to control the crop or adapt their watering system in their meadows. Some may find it difficult to understand how these experience can help a horse get ready for off-course living, but what they do (and how they do it) gives pensioned racing horse a new way of living and a completely new résumé that makes them a great perspective for any event.
It was at Baltimore, Md. on the Pimlico circuit at the second thoroughbred Makeover that I first encountered Dale and Dorothy. They' had dragged a full-blooded full-blooded trailers across the countryside for the occasion. Several of the ponies took part in a dog show. Another, a horse called Rikim, who had been eliminated after 75 startings and 12 victories, was rode by Dale in the ranching horse department of the contest.
At the end of the end of the weekend I had seen how all their recently pensioned drivers not only returned to a race setting and had everything under control after they had completed most of the week's journey, but also almost every cow-bred ranching horse they would expect in the VIP demonstration among their non-Ranch-y race drivers.
Rikim even asked me to jump aboard himself, with nothing but a holster and a guide wire, and I found him as firm and yet as approachable as you would expect a horse to be on his best outing. Of course I saw the "special" that the Gate to Great staff had.
Dealing well with a horse doesn't mean you're a good man. But in Dale and Dorothy I found two of the most genuine, kindhearted and good-natured men I have ever known. Whilst our background with the horse and in our lives could not have been more different, it was our common passion for thoroughbred that laid the foundations for a fellowship that I knew would last both in terms of distance and age.
Dorothy and Dale are coming to or through Lexington, Ky. to either take their recently purchased horse to their new houses or to pick up one or two recently retire off-track perspectives. Now and then I travel westwards to see them in Newell, H.S.D., as I did last weeks with some tour guides in the back, who spent several nights appreciating not only what they can do with a horse, but also what thoroughbred can do with a little bit of space, practice and some large open-air.
I' ve been aboard Quaint, Dale's 2016 Thoroughbred Makeover Mount, which has become a horse of cows and even gained web glory for its bridleless (and even riderless) work. It was Sallal. Others were on LorddemmiIt (a nice horse on the track as well as in the show ring and who wanted to press a button) and Thumbs Up (a distorted humor gelding out of an A.P. Indy filly, who seems to have taken live into the sea like a duck).
Took about two hrs to collect the animals and take them home, and all the time each of the horse only went on an effortless stroll with curled and swaying rein, except for the sporadic plea of a horseman to raise the tempo and take a contrary back to the group.
She has an ox called Little Joe, cute, soft and ideal for bringing whole bloods into livestock breeding. Back on their yard we all tried to throw a line around his throat where my suspicion was proven - there will be no more beltbuckles in my years.
Next mornings Dale tells us about a place near the North Dakota frontier that he had learned was supposed to be a nice place to be. "Do you want to see if we can find it?" he asked. One and a half hours later we drove near the Slim Buttes through some of the most original and rugged areas I have ever seen.
One of our group was given the chance to work on Painted Forest, a horse that, after working with Dale at the farm, worked with Dorothy in the show ring to earn a number of prizes and distinctions both in the UK and in the West, as well as the year-end honours of the Thoroughbred Incentive Program in Westerns.
That'?s an exaggeration. He' a fucking horse rocking ace. No way in view, so we just walked up and down precipitous hillocks, through river beds and meadows and through some of the most impassable areas I had ever explored on a horse, and all four of them never turned a blind eye. There was no way out.
On the next morning we recharged the horse, this trip takes about 40 minutes to Fort Meade, near the once lively gold mining Deadwood. We followed paths with serpentines that led us to the outskirts of the village, then hike on a field or through the woods and "teach the horse to explore", as Dale put it.
We stopped every 10 or 15 min or so to tell a story, joke or just enjoy the views, and while all our riders had been spending their days in the rush of the track, they not only seemed to appreciate the switch but also to enjoy it.
They think they've found heaven. "What is your mystery about making every horse - warhorses, troubled ones, etc. - a stable riding horse in just a few outings? "I asked Dale as we were standing on a mound looking out over a grass field, I stepped out of the stapes with my foot and my hand on my horse's trunk while the rein was loosely on his throat.
It' s taking them out of their own heads,' he said, declaring that one of the first horse trips he often makes on a new horse is done alone, inviting them into the trail and taking them to the rough country, where they ride and simply explore for a mile.
Whilst most of the GATT to Great programme rides west and is mainly used for ranching while at Dale and Dorothy, a large number are bought for military, general or other English-language events and their new owner credits their new times at the farm to make them flexible and diverse elsewhere.
We have all the ridden horse at Gate to Great for sal. Selected horses: A Lexington, Kentucky-based expert in sales, advertising and communication, Jen Roytz has recently been appointed Executive Director of the racehorse project. It is the nourishment resource for one canine, two females and two thoroughbred heifers.
