These (Cowboy) Boots were Made for…
Riding

Nancy Sinatra’s boots may have been made for walking, but that’s not the case with cowboy boots. And they’re not made for fashion either, even though many who wear them never get anywhere near a horse.

Available in two styles, Western-style cowboy boots are made specifically for riding horses while Roper-style boots are made with the rodeo roper in mind.

Western/Classic Boots

Mid-calf or taller boot shaft –
protects the lower leg and ankle, on and off the horse

Angled Heel, over 1″ high – keeps the foot in the stirrup (and the rider on the horse)

Roper Boots

Above ankle, below mid-calf booth shaft – less expensive, allows the boot to be more easily removed

Squared-off heel, less than 1″ high – easier to run to tie the calf in roping

Roper boots

Both styles of cowboy share these characteristics & benefits:

  • Slick, tread-less leather soles and narrow toes – easy insertion/removal into stirrups of saddles
  • Heel – minimizes risk of the foot sliding out of the stirrup
  • Shaft – holds the boot in place without laces

Keep it Neutral

Uh oh, it’s 8PM on a Tuesday and Fido just rolled in something outside. He needs a bath ASAP, but you’re out of dog shampoo. If your first instinct is to use your own shampoo or body wash, STOP! That could actually make things worse for your canine companion.
Want to know why? Let’s talk pH…

Close, but not the same

Close, but not the same!

Using bath products meant for acidic human skin on dogs’ more alkaline skin disrupts their natural pH balance. This can cause itching and create an environment where bacteria, parasites, and viruses run rampant*!

The best thing you can do for your pup is get dog shampoo with the right pH for their skin, same as you would do for yourself!

It’s a Balancing Act

It’s a Balancing Act

Life is a game of balance.

We balance checkbooks, diets, and tires. We balance work with friends and family obligations. Some of us even do yoga to incorporate balance into our body and mind.

In Yoga, balancing poses offer many benefits

  • Help concentration
  • Promote a sense of calm
  • Strengthen muscles
  • Build coordination
  • Can prolong life by helping to avoid falls and injuries that could lead to death among the elderly
