Flair Equine Nasal Strips
FLAIR Strips are drug free self-adhesive strips that promote optimum respiratory health of equine athletes at all levels by reducing airway resistance and providing improved airflow when your horse needs oxygen most.
FLAIR Strips provide benefits for all horses including intensively trained horses as well as for horses that only exert themselves during occasional weekend competitions or trail rides.
During exercise when horses begin to breathe hard the soft tissues overlying the nasal passages are sucked in, reducing the airway diameter. This reduction in diameter causes greater resistance to airflow into the lungs. FLAIR Strips gently support the soft tissues over the nasal passages providing reduced airway resistance during exercise.
By reducing airway resistance during exercise, FLAIR Strips help prevent fatigue related injuries, help protect the lungs from injury and bleeding and promote optimal athletic performance.
Contact us for more information 1-888-68 FLAIR or visit our website at www.FLAIRSTRIPS.com
Copper Spring Ranch is an authorized FLAIR dealer. We will have strips available with special pricing at our barrel races and team ropings.

Big Sky RV
Big Sky RV was founded in 1988 outside of Bozeman, Montana with a few consignments, no salesman and a dream to build something that we could be proud of. We have always operated under a win-win philosophy of doing business. We as a family owned company need to make a fair profit to remain in business and you, our customer, need to receive a fair deal each and every time. This business philosophy has taken us far from our humble beginnings. We now have a beautiful full RV Service facility in Bozeman, MT and a smaller operation in Billings, MT and a team of employees who all believe in that "win-win" policy and customer service. We appreciate the faith our customers have in us and do not take that for granted. We strive to earn your business and maintain a reputation of being ethical and honorable. Big Sky RV Inc is a good choice.
As the third generation of Frederickson family is starting to enjoy and love the RV lifestyle, we love to see the generational fun of RVing being passed down in front of our eyes. As Wayne Frederickson, owner, always says, "There is no feeling like the feeling you get when you are heading out of town in your RV.”

Buffalo Bump Pizza
Buffalo Bump Pizza is located at 28901 Norris Road in Bozeman, at Four Corners, their phone number is 406-522-9555. Here's a nice review that explains what they're all about:
It's a barn on the side of the road - or at least that's what it appears to be as you rocket down an open highway outside of Bozeman. Going inside, you're greeted with corporate style (clean, themed, organized, and well-decorated) mixed with small-town kitsch (an old road sign that says "bump" and hockey pucks from the local college team displayed on the wall). There's almost an endless list of pizzas you can choose from after you throw in the "build your own" option with toppings ranging from bar-b-que shredded beef to potatoes to black beans. They also have salads and grinders/subs (Italian, veggie, and deli meats).

Miles City Livestock Commission Company
Miles City Livestock is one of the oldest stockyards in this part of America. In the early years it was strictly a horse market and shipped thousands of military horses all over the world. In 1941 the auction began selling all classes of livestock with an emphasis on cattle.
The company built a new facility at our present location in 1950. Bart Meged and three additional partners purchased the auction in September of 1991. In January of 2015, Bart and Misty Meged purchased the remaining interests in the company and became the sole owners.
Miles City Livestock Commission Company has had many years of continuous growth. Receipts have grown from 20,000 to 90,000 head of cattle annually. An additional 25,000 -30,000 head are sold by Frontier Stockyards – our Internet livestock sales partner.
Over the last several years we have completely rebuilt the stockyards. We have all new pens made of 2 3/8 inch pipe. Our hay racks are set up for big square bales fed with a Bobcat. We have a variety of dirt pens for multi-load consignments. The entire yard back section is new. Our processing end has been upgraded with a new hydraulic squeeze chute. The load out area has new concrete surfaces at all six chutes. A new check-in office, and drive-thru trailer setup. The feedable capacity of the yards is 5,000-6,000 head. Our waste water system is DEQ certified and new in 2000.
We are very proud of our facility. It is clean, well managed, and very functional. We can handle any class of livestock including buffalo. Cattle are well taken care of and purchased cattle go back on feed and water after each sale.
Miles City Livestock is an anchor business in Miles City MT. A large employer and the biggest drawing card for ranchers to trade in Miles City. We love visitors and the coffee is always on. Come see us!

Equibrand and Classic Equine
EQUIBRAND PRODUCTS GROUP
Where it all began….
In 1986 in Granbury, Texas, Classic Rope started as one of the first companies to devise and perfect machine manufacturing of the lariat rope. Countless hours were spent formulating rope components that could withstand all types of roping conditions, both indoor and outdoor. Initially founded for the sole purpose of supporting the event of team roping, Classic was able to offer a consistent structure and sensitive feel in their ropes like no others on the market. Because of its quality and appeal, Classic Rope quickly became the leading rope manufacturer that professionals grew to depend on, and still use and trust today.
As Classic Rope surpassed its own horizon, new innovations unfolded and the next generation of companies developed. In 1995, Classic Equine began by specializing in high quality saddle pads and quickly expanded with more product lines offering the same attention to quality and durability. The current product offering now includes protective boots, cinches, bits, spurs, winter blankets and sheets, and accessories. Classic Equine has always worked closely with professional men and women from all disciplines of the western industry to test and perfect each product during development. Because the company was founded and developed by professionals, the form and function of each product serves a specific purpose. The driving purpose of Classic Equine has always been to offer the highest quality products available, keeping the performance horse’s safety and well-being first and foremost in mind.
In 1996, with the joining of Classic Rope and Classic Equine, Equibrand was created to encompass all the brands dedicated to the performance horse industry. Rattler Rope, a diverse and innovative rope company that had established itself as a leader in the calf roping world, as well as with team ropers, moved to Texas and joined the Equibrand group in 1997. With the integration of Rattler Rope, Classic Rope and Rattler Rope became the only two rope companies that manufactured their own string which every rope was built upon. Through this one-of-a-kind in-house process, quality and precise formulations of fibers are designed from scratch which gives the ropes those industry-renounced “feel” characteristics. Today, we are still the only company that manufactures string from a raw material, the very building blocks on which all ropes are made.
In 1998, Dale Martin Saddlery also came on board to provide high quality hand-crafted saddles and leather tack. Now known simply as Martin Saddlery, the company prides itself on the intricate detail and craftsmanship employed to create beautiful, durable products. The leather goods produced by Martin Saddlery utilize the finest raw materials, ensuring endurance and dependability without sacrificing fashion or tradition. Martin Saddlery has made great strides in the science of saddle fit and tree design. In 2003, in an effort to build a better-fitting saddle that would accommodate more of today’s equine athletes, Martin Saddlery began building and designing trees that truly made a difference in the performance and longevity of the horse. Today, Martin Saddlery is known for working with trusted, respected professionals and trainers to help make a difference in their horses. Along with providing a better fitting tree, Martin is also dedicated to educate all the horse owners on how to recognize the effects of an ill-fitting saddle and how to properly fit a saddle.
It is Equibrand’s goal to support every individual who strives to be the best at what they do with a horse. Members of the horse world share an unspoken bond. They come from different backgrounds and different places, but the one thing they share in common is the love of their horses and the satisfaction of getting to the pay window. Equibrand vows to stay novel and always progressive, striving to constantly improve the products we offer, always working to help you accomplish your goals.

Slack is held at 3:00 p.m. on July 1. Voted the 2013 and 2014 Large Rodeo of the Year in the Montana Circuit.
General Distributing Co.
Like most great, long-running family owned companies, General Distributing’s success can be traced back to its foundation. Glenn E. Bliss became president of General Distributing shortly after it opened in Great Falls back in 1948. He knew that by relying on core values like integrity and community involvement, his company would grow and become a Montana staple.

Randy Coffman is no stranger to high-end modular construction projects. An Arizona native, Randy’s turn-key prefab construction projects have been at the center of the commercial and residential building industry throughout the Southwest since the early 1970s. Beyond his achievements in the US, Randy has gained a fair bit of notoriety in the international equine community, which is no small feat where American construction is considered inferior in a traditionally wood or stone and mortar culture. His residential projects have been featured in the Phoenix Home & Garden, and Randy has been recognized as MD Barnmaster’s top dealer over the past several years running. Randy’s construction philosophy embodies MD Barnmaster’s business model – allow customers to realize their barn dream by offering a turn-key business solution within established budget, and without compromising Coffman Barns/MD Barnmaster’s integrity or through the use of inferior products.

The Hansbo Sport ICM series combines many years of expertise in equestrian products with innovative healing technology that targets vulnerable areas of the horse that are sensitive during and after hard work. While focused on rehabilitation, our latest product line is also designed for optimal fit, function and style.
Hansbo Sport ICM wraps, rugs, boots, saddle pads and harnesses work by generating their own heat, giving the horse a greater feeling of wellbeing and helping to prevent injuries.
It is well known that heat accelerates healing in joint disorders. Heat has long been used to treat rheumatoid arthritis as well as muscle aches and injuries, and problems in tendons and ligaments. Clinical studies have more recently shown that ceramic material placed against the skin activates infrared waves from body heat in specific areas to aid in healing.
