Stories of EPM & Dr. Sam Crosby, DVM 

Part 2 of a 3 part series

Created by: Christina Hyke

April 2021

Most difficult day of my life spurred me into creating a three part series on EPM.

 

In Part 2 of 3 episodes with a focus to shed light on EPM.   Most horse owners that have even heard of EPM equate this disease as showing up as a horse with a wobbly or drunken hind end, though there are many small, red flags that show up long before a sudden onset of EPM.   EPM is an infection of protozoa that attack the central nervous system of the end host, the horse.   Some varieties of this protozoa tend more towards attacking the muscle, to learn more tune into this episode of Endurance Horse Podcast where we will hear two more stories from horse owners followed by an interview with Dr. Sam Crosby, DVM of Crosby Equine Services.

We were blessed to get you a code for Karbo Combo probiotic, use this at the Karbo Store Website.  I tried Karbo Combo for a follow up probiotic after Grace's treatment for EPM.  Grace had a significant improvement with Karbo Combo and continues to be on it.  We also tried Karbo Combo for JR, I did not notice any difference with this product.  With JR we did see a big difference in him with SarStart as an aftercare follow up, and with Grace, not much difference on Sarstart.  Each horse has it's own individual biome, and what benefits one greatly may not have a significant affect on the next horse.  

Before starting Karbo Combo, Grace could not back up straight, she was swinging her left hind leg significantly and backing up almost sideways.  For Grace,  after about three weeks on Karbo Combo we noticed a significant difference with her.  She eats it readily, and she tends to be picky with powders etc, Karbo is a pellet and we plan to keep her on it for the rest of the year or longer.   The Karbo Store gave us a one time use coupon code for our listeners to try Karbo Combo.  We reached out to them because not only had other horse owners dealing with EPM had great things to say about Karbo Combo, so did Dr. Sam Crosby.  It was at their recommendation that we gave Karbo a try and wanted to see if we would get get a better deal for you to try it at least once with your horses and see if it helps:

Today Jim & I tell you about the most difficult day of my life.  The day all horse and pet owners dread, the day you have to say goodbye. 

 

This is a difficult episode, as it is about the loss of our beloved Houdini. 

EPM will be the topic of the next three episodes.  Part one is dedicated to allowing other horse owners to share with you their personal experiences with diagnosing and the ensuing battle with EPM.  Most of them won, some did not.

Interview with Dawn Haas of Appaloosa Distance Riding Association, 

Dawn tells her story of how she found endurance riding , helped create local trails and her a bit about her appaloosa horses. 

 

WARHORSE 100 Mile Challenge 

 

It is a virtual Challenge based totally on the honor system, we trust you will track your miles and truly hope that you would share videos, photos and screen shots of your mileage to our WARHORSE 100 Mile Challenge FB Group.  There is a small fee to cover the costs of shipping, design and creation of the medals (or for outside of the USA embroidered patches).  We hope that you join us in this Challenge, share it with your friends and share your journey with us in the Facebook group.   We have riders who I know will knock this out in one month by riding 25 miles or more per week.  We also have drivers, even a mini!  We have horses being walked lovingly by their owners because the horses are too young or too old to be ridden, so they are walking their horses by hand on the days they can.   This goal is so customizable!   We just wanted to connect with more riders, and cheer them on towards a truly milestone goal.  I am loving hearing all the stories, moms riding with their children, husbands with their wife and older horses finding new purpose again.   Won’t you join us?   We know you know how to social distance in the best way possible, with your horse!

THE FARM- Interview with Tracy Porter & Shirley May of Milton, WI

March 19th, 2020

Welcome to

The Farm Interview

with Shirley May & Tracy Porter

Endurance Horse Podcast 

Hosted by Christina Hyke

Created March 19th, 2020

I know it is a challenging Spring for those in North America, and for all of us across the world.

Though I'd like to wish you all a Happy Spring,   it is my hope that we can brighten your first day of spring!

PodcastCover.jpg

So the best laid plans of mice & men…… Episode 36 of Endurance Horse Podcast was to be on Ride Management, though the recent world health concerns put a damper on my plans to travel around getting several interviews with Ride Managers.   I was able to do a few interviews, and just so happened to interview a few friends before the pandemic restricted all the movements and gatherings.

 

In Episode 36 we will hear from two great horsewomen, mother and daughter, Shirley May and Tracy Porter.   We chat about how both of them got into horses, a bit about horse training and yes a little about endurance.  Shirley and Tracy operate a 120 acre boarding facility in Milton, Wisconsin

 

It is my hope that you enjoy this episode getting to know this midwest horse trainer and her mother.  And I hope it helps to take your mind away from current events, even if only for a few minutes.

LONG FEATHER Racing - Also Milwaukee Art Museum & Veterans Light Up the Arts

March 7th, 2020

Welcome to the

Long Feather Racing episode of

Endurance Horse Podcast with

The Milwaukee Art Museum &

Veterans Light Up the Arts

Long_Feather_Racing.png

 

Created February 27, 2020

Welcome to episode 35  of Endurance Horse Podcast!     

 

This topic may seem to have little to do with endurance riding, we distance riders are often talking about riding the same horse over many miles,  in this episode we talk to a father who manages a racing team that is comprised of his family members.  Long Feather Racing Team  stands tall among the many skilled teams who participate in Indian Relay Racing.  

 

One rider, 3 horses and many team members comprise the team.  Riders must mount bareback on their own power and relay onto three horses to win this race.  Though swapping horses, high speeds and bareback seem to have little to do with endurance,  I reached out to Richard Long Feather of Standing Rock Reservation to connect with him and listen in as  shares his love of Indian Relay Racing.    

 

It is funny how things come together if you track them backwards.  As you may know, I had the idea for WARHORSE Endurance ride, that then also led me to loan an idea and name for a second ride to Laura  to change the name and theme of her ride.  I loaned her the name I had for another ride, Spirit Horse.  Laura then spoke to people who gave her the idea to fund raise for an equine program at Rosebud Reservation- which brought me to purchasing the DVD, HORSE NATION, which helped me to find out about the Mankato ride, and the Wounded Knee ride, and then apparently FB suggested Long Feather Racing-  and so I found Richard’s family & now Richard is on Endurance Horse Podcast. 

 

Richard’s family works as a team traveling during the racing season covering many miles with typically six horses to care for.  This sounded very familiar to the ride camp we all travel around to.  I wanted to make a connection with Endurance Horse Podcast and this amazing family.  As you can see, what started out as a short interview turned into much more as I found myself enjoying this man’s love for his horses and his home.  I hope you all can forgive me as I learn the more technical side of recording.  I think that we had a bad phone connection, though I hope you can listen long enough to see what a good horse connection we made. 

Sit back, hold on and enjoy the ride!

Christina Hyke Photography, LLC

 Christina Hyke, creator of Endurance Horse Podcast, lives in southern Wisconsin with her sweet husband, Jim.  Chris is an equine & pet photographer, and Ride Manager of WARHORSE Endurance.  She has always loved the trails and spent every moment she could riding since before she could walk.   It was the love of covering miles through beautiful territory on good horses that inspired her to create a podcast about it to share stories with other riders from around the world. 

Ride Far.  Ride Well.  Ride Often.
