It’s futurity season, and the October issue of Barrel Horse News features the Special Futurity Section to help you navigate in and out of the arena. We have tips from trainers and tax preparers on how to get your taxes in line as a professional horse trainer, and we also take a look at the mechanics of different bits and how they fit the different ways riders use their hands. Futurity trainer Jessie Domann explains her ’straight is fast’ training philosophy, and NFR barrel racer Jessica Routier demonstrates her stretching routine for her horses. This issue also includes an in-depth look at strange hoof ailment keratomas and how to recognize and treat them. We bring coverage from big events like the NBHA Youth World Championships, Ruby Buckle, Royal Crown, WCRA Days of ’47, Cheyenne and Calgary, and more.
