Arena Footing: Materials, Installation, & Maintenance | Horse Journals

Arena Footing: Materials, Installation, & Maintenance | Horse Journals


About two years ago I grated out an area and brought in material for a nice medium size arena.  I don't have a round pen anymore so I do all my workouts in this area.  Also, just the perfect size for riding the horses.  Our area has "urban encroachment" so riding out into foothills is no longer available.  However we do have a lovely big county park that has a section with two arenas not too far.

Hope you enjoy the article.

Cowboys Indians Poem of them Week

Say Cowboy To Me

C&I's Poem of the Week for 1/4/2012

If you say the word “cowboy” to me
It evokes a strong memory
Of men that I knew who were tried and true
And paid the cost to ride free

You can argue the word is a noun
An adjective, or a verb
What goes with the title is not just a word
It’s a western degree that is earned.

Like a PHD, BS or MD
There’s a cost in dollars and years
And owning a ranch doesn’t earn the degree
It comes with sweat, pain and peers

A degree that’s earned the hard way
Through manure and dust every day
A true cowboy’s heart is built, it’s not bought
You can’t pick one up on the way

If you own a good rope horse and ride
And own forty acres of pride
That won’t make a hand who rides for the brand
Whose face has the feel of rawhide

Don’t say the word cowboy to me
Unless you know just what it means
A degree that was earned, a trade that was learned
On a diet of beef and beans

C&I's poem of the week for 01/04/2012. To submit your poems for consideration, please send them to mail@cowboysindians.com with "poetry" in the subject line. Selected entries will appear online.
