    How to Teach a Horse to Lead and Tie

    8 years ago

    The natural instinct of a horse is to fight against anything that restricts the movement of his head. In the wild, they need complete freedom to survey the landscape, see threats from afar and to deal with threats nearby. A horse that needs to run,...

    What is the first thing you need to teach a horse before you use any equipment around him?

    8 years ago

    Writer's Block Equals Self-Silencing

    8 years ago

     Can't speak, as least not in writing? Why not? There's a reason. Let's find it. What's the payoff? Everything we do or avoid doing has a payoff. The idea that writer's block contained a payoff shocked me at first. How could there be a payoff...

    Bathing Costumes: Why Did Victorian Fashion Designers Hate Women?

    8 years ago

    Pity the poor Victorian woman sent to the beach in a hot, scratchy wool suit. Covered from head to toe, her bathing costume contained weights so she could demurely drown rather than have her skirts float up and titillate leering men with glimpses of...

    Loving the Love Ride

    11 months ago

    What's better than the throb of a hot Harley engine between your legs and the cool wind in your face? How about thousands of hot, throbbing Harley engines roaring down the road during the Love Ride? The Love Ride began 26 years ago when Oliver...

    Is "Financial Abortion" for Men Viable or Legal?

    11 months ago

    8 years ago

     Editors are the gatekeepers of publication. They can be a writer's best friend or worst enemy. So who chooses? The writer, of course. Pleasing an editor is a necessary skill for every writer. There is no mystery involved. That's the good news....

    Getting Paid After Selling Your Writing

    8 years ago

    There are two parts to earning money from your writing: selling the product and collecting the money. Most writers invest quite a bit of time in learning how to do the first while ignoring the latter. But a sale isn't complete until the money is in...

    I am the Ponyman's Daughter

    8 years ago

    The cowboys said I learned to walk when I fell off my pony. That may be true. I have photos of myself sitting in the saddle when I was barely old enough to sit up on my own. I've always felt more at home on horseback than on the ground. In fact,...

    How many of us have prayed for our horse's well-being or our own when our horse is being difficult? I have. Most horse people I know have. But who are we praying to? There are many deities over the centuries that have been associated with horses....
