Summertime Fun at Bonina!

By | What's New?

$35K Non-Pro Champions


June 1 -4 kicked off the summer with four days of outstanding cutting at Bonina! There was a Friday night dance, Saturday night speaker and buckles and bags to the winners!

The gang at Ukiah Cutting Campout


Away from civilization, in a big mountain meadow, it was endless cutting, quiet camping and great food! We practiced without pressure and had unlimited cattle. Our hosts, Dick Levy and Anne Coote are the best!

It was fun to tune up High School Cutters en route to National Finals in Wyoming. These talented kids are well-mounted, have a great attitude about their expectations and appreciate this opportunity.


The most appreciated implement at Bonina is a new, huge water truck! Dust has been a problem! Blame it on dry weather, too much traffic, playful cattle or expect it because it’s a ranch, the reality is that dust causes lots of issues. This enormous water-spraying machine is tamping down the dust on the roads and in the pens. Horses, cattle and people are much happier.

Bonina Elite Treats Joint Support


The latest addition to our nutrition line – a power packed pelleted treat for joint comfort. Bob made the formula some time ago. I found it and with help from Dr. Mike Mehren, sourced the ingredients and a manufacturing facility. The treats are a tremendous hit with the horses! They love them! And, they’re getting glucosamine, chondroitin and MSM in every bite! When the dose is doubled, they’re therapeutic!

“Cutting horses need the keenness to think and respond, the strength and speed to stop and turn and the intelligence and ability to break down a cow. This ability calls on every system in a horse’s body. For a horse to perform at its peak, feed the entire system. Feed OXY-EQUINE ENHANCED…it doesn’t leave anything important out of his diet!”  – Denton Moffat, DVM

2023 Happenings at Bonina

By | What's New?

Every day at Bonina is a kaleidoscope of unique activities. It often starts with a warm welcome to a client for lessons on cattle. Those sessions evolve into training…we are always training: colts, young horses, finished horses and riders.


Clinics are a very popular way to advance horsemanship. Information is consolidated and provides an opportunity to learn at a new level. Riders form friendships and support that carries to the show pen. Bonina hosts clinics focusing on cutting showmanship, trail riding competitions and barrel racing.


Bonina Event Center brings cutting horse competitors from across the nation and Canada. They appreciate the good cattle, good ground and friendly atmosphere.


Bonina regularly hosts these contests because they are a natural fit for the performance horse and rider – as the nature of the ranch is exactly what other contests emulate.


Bonina hosts barrel races and barrel racing clinics at the Event Center which draws a big crowd of racers of all ages. In winter they use the indoor arena and the summertime circuit finds the outdoor arena teeming with fast paced barrel racing events.


Bonina’s high potency horse supplements are gobbled up by every horseman in every discipline and season of life. Oxy-Equine Enhanced supplies the performance horse with all its needs for peak performance.
FREEDOM supplements the broodmares, yearlings and any others kept in groups. S~Elect replaces electrolytes. BOOST gives a horse that extra charge of energy without sugars! O’Sweet Gold helps prevent and treat inflamed joints.  B*Good helps the nervous horse behave. You can shop online and order directly shipped to your barn door!


Noble products house every horse at Bonina. There are Noble stalls attached to the arena, 60 guest stalls, a 9-stall trainer barn and many pens. We recommend them highly and sell Noble products as a dealer. Contact Nina Lundgren for best price information. 509-539-3435.


The Bonina breeding program is intense and aims to pair up excellent broodmares with top cutting horse stallions. Each year there’s a new colt crop with sires like Stevie Rey Von, Smooth Talkin Style, Dual Reyish, Sanctus, Rollz Royce, and Metallics MVP. Colts may have new owners before they are weaned or during their yearling year. At two, the colts enter the training program.


Lone Crow Farms is heading up cattle feeding at Bonina. The operation combines feeding with farming and retail beef sales. Lone Crow Farms is set up to wean, grow calves and finish. They have kept the same experienced crew to manage day to day care. Bunk space has been added and capacity expanded. Contact Cody Hoseth 509-994-0870 for feeding information.

    The Omega Balance: Why the Perfect Ratio Matters

    By | What's New?

    Balancing the Omegas
    Did you know that Vitamin E and the Omegas 3 and 6 work together to maintain healthy cell function in the body? Today’s focus topic is on Omegas – essential fatty acids – nutrients that every horse diet can benefit from. Without Omega 3 and 6, Vitamin E would not be able to perform its function of providing cellular repair.

    It is important to realize cellular repair happens on a daily basis to maintain normal function and that Vitamin E is essential for that process; however, this doesn’t mean your horse is always in an injured state. Here is a brief insight of what goes on in a damaged cell – you’ll see how Omegas are a key ingredient to initiate this repair process.

    Visualize this: Omega 6 comes in to stabilize an “injury,” add in Omega 3 which cleans up the cell, which then makes room for Vitamin E to repair the malfunction. With all three of these ingredients readily available in Bonina Nutrition products, your horses won’t struggle to maintain a healthy inner body and immune system.

    Omega 3 and Omega 6 are essential fatty acids that should be included in every equine diet. It’s important to choose a balanced and complete feed for your horse whether he is performing or providing pleasure rides. When these two fatty acids are provided in the correct ratio, they help the horse’s body respond to exercise and exertion at all levels.

    Our products are one of a select group of supplements that offer these three essentials in
    the same feed…but more importantly – in the correct ratio to make a difference!

    Why is it important that Omega 3 and 6 be provided in a balanced ratio? Many diets are loaded with Omega 6, but would require additional Omega 3 supplementation to reach a 1:1 ratio, the ideal ratio in which all three ingredients can “do their job.” This is where Bonina Nutrition formulas separate themselves as one of the best supplements from the just-ok. To reach the perfect ratio of Omega 3 and 6, we add flax and canola meal; thus, you will see these added Omega 3s in the guaranteed analysis – creating the 1:1 ratio required for optimal nutritional benefit.

    Now – here’s how your horses can benefit from this high concentration and perfectly balanced level of Omega 3 to Omega 6:

    Omega 3
    *Reduces Inflammation
    *Aids in injury repair
    *Aids clean up of injury sites
    *Responsible for maintaining cell structure

    Omega 6
    *Increases inflammation response (necessary to stabilize injuries)
    *Supports the immune system

    We recommend you feed our Vitamin/Mineral supplement OXY+EQUINE ENHANCED or our complete feed BOOST based on your horse’s particular needs for optimal essential fatty acid support in his diet. If you have questions about which supplement would work best for your horses, email Sterling Autry.
