Julie Goodnight Tip of the Month!

PONCHA SPRINGS, Colo. April 27, 2009— Have you ever had an ad drop out at the last moment—or a space that didn’t sell before printing deadline? Or has someone turned in a story that’s just a little too short? It’s Julie Goodnight and http://www.juliegoodnight.com to the rescue. Check out the newest addition to Goodnight’s online “Training Library” here and read more about training online (found with a quick link at the top of http://www.juliegoodnight.com). Goodnight—known for her clear communication in print and on her new RFD-TV show, Horse Master with Julie Goodnight—provides a tip each month for use when you, as an editor, need just a little more content or a great quip to fill out your magazine. Tips may be edited for style, length and content. Content is provided free of charge. Here’s a tip to help you when you’re in a layout crunch . . .

Catch and Hold

When you approach a horse out in the field to catch him, be prepared with your halter and lead rope ready. Approach toward the horse’s shoulder—not directly in front of the horse, and extend your hand when you get close, allowing him to smell you. To fit your horse with his rope and halter, first place the end of the lead rope around his neck, so that you have control. Then bring the halter under his neck with your left hand and reach over his neck at the withers with your right hand to grab the crown piece of the halter. You’ll have the halter ready in both hands as you reach up toward his ears and drop his nose in the slot and gently bring the crown piece over his ears to fasten. This method keeps your horse more secure while you are haltering him and prevent you from accidentally slapping him with the halter as you put it up over his ears. If you use a rope halter, make sure to tie it correctly, so that the excess rope points toward your horse’s rear. For more detailed halter-tying directions, download a PDF at: http://shop.juliegoodnight.com/shop/tthalternoseband.html or http://juliegoodnight.com/pdf/halterinstructions.pdf
