Baxter Black Joins Priefert Family of Endorsees

Story and Photo Via: Priefert Ranch Equipment

Priefert Ranch Equipment is extremely proud to welcome Baxter Black to its family of Endorsees.  Priefert will be partnering with Baxter to help bring his unique perspective and cowboy brand of humor to agriculturally related groups across the country, particularly those involved in the cattle industry.  Described by the New York Times as “…probably the nation's most successful living poet," everything about Baxter is cowboy; his cartoonish mustache, his personality and his poetry.  A much respected character in our industry, Priefert felt Baxter was a natural fit.

When asked for his thoughts about partnering with Priefert, Baxter replied, “You’re known by the company you keep.  I found a friend in Priefert.  It’s a 3rd generation business that holds the values I think are what makes America great; God, country, family, hard work and caring about their neighbor.  It’s gonna be a pleasure to be part of what they stand for.”

Priefert is equally excited about the opportunity work with Baxter.  Jeff Rash, VP of Sales & Marketing had this to say, “Baxter Black is well known to those who enjoy the western lifestyle and is a rare American treasure.  I’ve watched and read Baxter’s material since I was a boy, and like many young aspiring cowboys from my generation, Baxter’s wit, charm and values helped mold me into the man I’ve become.  I’ve ridden with him in the bad lands of Arizona, I’ve worked cattle in the hot sun beside him and I’ve gotten to know him as a friend, as well as a mentor.  They don’t make them like Baxter anymore, and it’s a true honor for our company to be associated with a cowboy of his caliber.”

Tips for Managing Show Jitters

Story Via: Nancy Wesolek-Sterrett; Dressage Department Head, Meredith Manor International Equestrian Centre

Horse shows are games people play with their horses. Showing gives horse-minded folks a chance to socialize. You feel gratified when you head home with ribbons. But showing can be a stressful game for both horses and riders, especially if you are unprepared. Show veterans who load up their horses and head off to shows weekend after weekend establish routines for their show preparation, trailering, and schooling. Their horses become conditioned to traveling and working in new environments. Routine and repetition greatly reduce the stress of showing for both them and their horses. Those who show less frequently can minimize show day stresses with some thoughtful preparation at home.
