Horse Medicine




 Houdini and Eric

This is a shot of Eric Yorty (US Army), one of our Cowboy Up! Graduates and Instructors taken by Film Maker James Anaquad Kleinert who's film Horse Medicine just premiered at the Napa Valley Film Festival of which Horses For Heroes - NM Cowboy Up! was featured. 

We were honored to have James out here to meet, live with, and film our veterans in action and to see some of the our horses help to heal our veterans.


"Horse Medicine explores the profound human and horse relationship from ancient myth to modern science. This inspirational documentary film reconnects our hearts with the power of the horse and majesty of Mother Earth."

Bonanza Creek

November 12th, 2014

Steve called from Bonanza Creek bright and early for some help to move cattle afoot through the alley and into the chute for a health check.  The frigid temperatures of 19 degrees did not stop Our Veteran's Sarah (US Army) and Dillon (US Air Force), as well as Bianca and myself. Sometimes the best cowboy for the job is a cowgirl!

We all had to move the cattle into the first pen...

... then into the 2nd pen where Jacinda and Dillon moved them...

...to the first corridor just behind me. From here Sarah and I moved them up...
...the alley where Bianca moved them up into the actual chute 
where Steve and Joe did their health check on each calf.
The last batch - all hands on deck!
L to R: Sarah, Nancy and Jacinda.

 Moo!
 And the very last push into the chute.

Thank you to Dillon for taking these photos in between her own working of 
the cattle, and yes, it was that cold!
