IEA, NRHA announce alliance OKLAHOMA CITY - Management of the Interscholastic Equestrian Association (IEA) and the National Reining Horse Association (NRHA) announced they have reached an alliance agreement. With this alliance, NRHA will become the title sponsor for the IEA national western championship at the IEA National Finals for the three years beginning next year. In 2011, NRHA will create a competition that will provide IEA competitors with an opportunity to participate in a competition similar to the NRHA Collegiate Championships. This will serve as a precursor for the NRHA to host the IEA National Western Championships in 2012 and 2013. “We are extraordinarily proud of this partnership with the NRHA,” said Roxane Lawrence, IEA co-founder and executive director. “Both organizations were founded to provide a fun and safe equestrian experience for young riders.” Brian Bendele, NRHA manager of NRHyA & RHSF programs stated, “We have been amazed with the growth of Interscholastic Equestrian Association. Begun as seed concept eight years ago, it has become the leading student equestrian organization in North America. We look forward to a mutually beneficial

relationship as both organizations offer youngsters a venue to show their abilities with western riding.” Founded in 2002, The IEA was organized to promote and improve the quality of equestrian competition and instruction available to middle and secondary school students. Its purpose is to set minimum standards for competition, provide information concerning the creation and development of school associated equestrian sport programs, and to generally promote the common interests of safe riding instruction and competition, and education on matters related to equestrian competition at the middle and secondary school levels. The IEA (rideiea.org) has more than 3,500 riders across North America who compete in Western, Hunt Seat and Saddle Seat shows. Founded in 1966, the NRHA (nrha.com) is an organization dedicated to the promotion of the reining horse. The National Reining Horse Association is the standard body of the sport of Reining with its international headquarters located in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. NRHA has more than 15,000 members, over 100 affiliates worldwide and holds in excess of 740 NRHA-approved competitions worldwide.

What is the link between carbs and performance? By Toby Raymond Cargill Animal Nutrition Nutrition affects all vital aspects of our horses’ health and performance. Recent discoveries in the medical world have linked carbohydrates to many digestive disorders including colic, laminitis, hyperactivity, Developmental Orthopedic Disease (DOD) and Cushing’s disease. The relationship between carbohydrates and disease needs to be clarified in order for us to determine whether this energy resource is a help or hindrance to the equine diet. Understanding the Digestion Process Horses are referred to as continuous grazers, and will often forage for up to 16 hours per day. Because their stomachs are exceptionally small and comprise just 7% of their digestive tracts, horses are limited in their ability to absorb nutrients from large quantities of food at one time. Because of a horse’s eating pattern and its stomach’s restrictions, the process is completed quickly, in only 30 to 90 minutes. The stomach begins the digestion process by secreting hydrochloric acid (HCI) and pepsin to break down materials before passing them on to the small intestine. The small intestine is where the majority of the nutrients, including protein, some carbohydrates and fat are digested and where many essential vitamins and minerals are absorbed. From here, most of the matter and liquids continue on to the hind-gut (large intestine), which digests fiber (insoluble carbohydrates) and the remaining soluble carbohydrates (starches and sugars), utilizing specialized bacteria and protozoa in a fluid environment. In the hind-gut, minerals are absorbed and many vitamins are synthesized using microbial action. Finally, the undigested material is eliminated through the rectum and anus as feces or manure. Understanding Carbohydrates There are six main categories of nutrients necessary to a horse’s survival - water, carbohydrates, protein, fats, vitamins, and minerals. While energy isn’t considered a category unto itself, almost 90% of nutrient intake is required to fulfill this critical requirement. Although the densest forms of energy are found in fats, it is carbohydrates (both soluble and non-soluble) that are used as primary dietary energy sources. Soluble Carbohydrates Soluble carbohydrates, such as starches and sugars, are defined by their ability to break down into simple sugars (called glucose), which is then absorbed by the small intestine and assimilated into the blood stream. Insulin continues the process by transferring glucose to the liver and muscles where it is stored for utilization on demand. This energy reserve, termed glycogen, is the resource that provides immediate power bursts essential to physical activity. The starch from corn, oats, barley, and molasses are most commonly equated with soluble carbohydrates. Horses involved in intense anaerobic activities such as racing must have adequate soluble carbohydrates in their diet to maintain adequate muscle glycogen levels. Insoluble Carbohydrates Insoluble carbohydrates are derived from the fiber source, cellulose, which is digested by microbes in the cecum and large intestine. Insoluble carbohydrates take over 24 hours to process and are transformed into volatile fatty acids. These acids are eventually absorbed and held by the liver in reserve as an additional energy source. The

“The dominant spirit, however, that haunts this enchanted region, and seems to be commander-in-chief of all the powers of the air, is the apparition of a figure on horseback without a head. “It is said by some to be Silhouette of Headless Horseman in open field... the ghost of a Hessian trooper, whose head

had been carried away by a cannonball, in some nameless battle during the Revolutionary War; and who is ever and anon seen by the country folk hurrying along in the gloom of night, as if on the wings of the wind. “His haunts are not confined to the valley, but extend at times to the adjacent roads, and especially to the vicinity of a church at no great distance. Indeed, certain of the most authentic historians of those pars, who have been careful in collection and collating the floating facts concerning this specter, allege that the body of the trooper, having been buried in the church-yard, the ghost rides forth to the scene of battle in nightly quest of his head; and that the rushing speed with which he sometimes passes along the Hollow, like a midnight blast, is owing to his being belated, and in a hurry to get back to the church-yard before daybreak. Such is the general purport of this legendary superstition, which has furnished materials for many a wild story in that region of shadows; and the specter is known, at all the country firesides, by the name of the Headless Horseman of Sleepy Hollow.” You thought it was just a spooky Halloween story, didn’t you? Well, the Headless Horseman still rides, and you can see him for yourself - along with Ichabod Crane, Katrina, and

EQUINE TIMES — OCTOBER 2010

Quarter Horse Congress grows beyond founder’s vision How it all began At the May 1966 OQHA board of directors meeting, Blair Folck, an OQHA past president, reported on his attendance at the Charolais Cattle Congress in St. Louis, Missouri. Folck raved about the success of the show, and stated that the enormity of the statesponsored cattle event dwarfed any promotional events that the national association had ever done. He further predicted that the same type of program could be adapted to Quarter Horses and hosted by OQHA. His idea was received with mixed emotions by the board. Many people were excited about the idea, but others were concerned about the financial liability. The OQHA had only $3,500 in the treasury. After deliberating and reviewing its options, the board agreed at an emergency board meeting in January 1967 to host the Congress under one condition: $10,000 was to be raised before May 1, 1967, or the show would be cancelled. Dr. W.P. “Pete” Drake, OQHA president for the first three Congress shows, and Folck began presenting the idea of the Congress to individuals and groups, and worked on obtaining commercial exhibit agreements to attend the show. With much more than the $10,000 goal in signed contracts, the association decided to proceed with the first annual All American Quarter Horse Congress, held November 3-5, 1967 at the Ohio State Fairgrounds in Columbus, OH. Registration was $20 for three days, $15 for Saturday and Sunday and $5 for Sunday only. “There would be no free rides,” wrote Dr. Drake. “We had heard a report that the National Reining Horse Association had incurred a $4,000 debt in their effort to put on their first futurity in 1966, and we surely did not want to duplicate their errors.” More than 5,000 horsemen and women came to the first Congress, and the event was a hit, netting the association $15,000 over its three-day run. From its initial three days, the show grew to include more and more events and eventually evolved to the three-week schedule seen today. The 44th annual All American Quarter Horse Congress is scheduled for Oct. 1-24, 2010. The show will be held at The Ohio Expo Center, located at 717 E. 17th Ave., Columbus, OH. Admission is $25 per vehicle for a oneday pass, or $70 per vehicle for the entire show. Fees are regardless of the number of people in the vehicle. Parking permits can be purchased at the gate. There is no other additional admission charge except for Freestyle Reining, Equine Chronicle and Congress Masters events, and Professional Bull Riding Toll-Free: 800.222.6336

Tour performances, which must be purchased in advance. Horse enthusiasts, local equestrians, upand-coming riders and world-class competitors from around the world will enjoy this show. Competitors range in age from five years old to 60. Spectators come from Ohio, the surrounding states, as well as across the country and include the general public, corporate executives and their families. New for 2010 • The Open Two-Year-Old Western Pleasure Stakes class which is open to previously shown two year olds. The entry fee is $400, with $10,000 in added prize money. The class was added in response to OQHA’s decision to once again restrict the Congress Two-Year-Old Snaffle Bit Futurity to previously un-shown two year olds. • The Cinch Team Roping Challenge will invite the fastest qualifiers from the Open and Amateur Heading and Heeling classes held at the Congress to compete for $20,000 in added prize money (70 percent to the open division and 30 percent to the amateur division). Show highlights • Small Fry Horsemanship showcases the youngest riders at the Congress. Riders aged nine and under dress in bedazzled show clothes and compete on their mounts. The outfits are a sight to behold and the children are always smiling from ear to ear. • The Masters Events include the Equine Chronicle Western Pleasure class, the Equine Chronicle Hunter Under Saddle class and the Congress Weanling Halter class. These classes promote and showcase the natural talent of un-shown two-year-old and weanling horses. All entries must purchase a slot, which were sold at the first Masters Events in 2004, and are owned for life. Owners may either show one of their own horses or lease the slot if they do not have a prospect to show. • Freestyle Reining is often compared to figure skating in that riders create their own pattern to music. This competition combines the athletics and finesse of Reining moves with the melodies of popular music in one of the Congress’ most popular events. Competitors (and their mounts) often wear costumes and may include props and actors in their performances. • Dummy Roping classes provide an opportunity for young contestants (age 5-12) to show off their roping skills by roping a plastic steer’s head on a bale of hay. There will be two rounds for the 9-12 year old division and three rounds for the eight year old and under division. The final round for both divisions is sudden death, in which contestants must rope the plastic steer from increasing distances. • The National Youth Activity Team

Fax: 517.368.5131

Tournament (NYATT) brings together more than 100 teams and 600 youth from state and regional Quarter Horse associations to compete in six events, making it the most popular youth event at the Congress. A maximum of two members from each team can compete in each event. Awards are given at the end of the tournament for both individuals and teams. The All American Quarter Horse Congress Queen is also crowned during this ceremony. • The Congress Super Sale is a tradition at the All-American Quarter Horse Congress. It has been held every year since the Congress began in 1967. The Super Sale is a place for horsemen and women to purchase some of the finest horses in the world. Only the best and brightest are offered at the Super Sale every year. • The Intercollegiate/Junior Horse Judging Contest brings in students from across the country to find out who has the best eye for horseflesh. Contestants place four Halter classes and eight performance classes in this competition. Certain classes will be announced as “oral reasons” classes. Oral reasons are the judging contestants’ chance to explain their placings. There are youth and collegiate divisions, both of which award individual and team high-point awards. • The All American Quarter Horse Congress Queen Contest brings young women from all over the country to compete for the title. The contest consists of a written exam about the AQHA Official Handbook of Rules and Regulations, an oral interview and a Horsemanship pattern. The candidates also assist with the Queen’s Style Show, which highlights fashionable Western wear on the runway. Once crowned, the Queen serves as an ambassador to the show, making appearances throughout the year at national events. • Million Dollar Stallion Avenue is a unique experience in which spectators can view some of the country’s most valuable stallions. The stallions range in expertise and experience, but together they showcase the most promising Quarter Horse sires in the industry. Owners can stop by too, and discuss breeding with the stallions’ owners. Million Dollar Stallion Avenue is where the future of the Quarter Horse industry begins. • Puppy Alley will melt even the hardest of hearts. An entire tent with countless booths dedicated solely to man’s best friend, Puppy Alley is a Congress tradition in which breeders of all different breeds of dogs gather to showcase and sell their latest litters. The Congress website, www.oqha.com/congress, features full show information, schedule, results, ticket information and more. Continuous streaming video is available at www.reelhorse.com.

The time is now... harvest the wind! ALDA, NE— Merrick Machine Company, under the brand name Triad WindGen, has developed and introduced a new, revolutionary wind power generation system. Wind power is now a reality for the farm, ranch, business or home thanks to Triad WindGen. Triad WindGen uses the proven technology of a legacy design which also gives a conventional look that is aesthetically pleasing and acceptable to both the owner and neighbors. By utilizing rugged metal construction, there is no need for guy-wires and their associated big footprint. The Triad WindGen system includes the freestanding tower. With on-grid and off-grid capabilities, the Triad WindGen system has the ability to both make you money and save you money! Triad WindGen was designed to operate at low start-up wind speeds, unlike many turbine manufacturers that tout their power out-put at wind speeds that will rarely be experienced. Far more important is the performance at lower speed ranges that are more common. Lower blade speed means lower noise (one of the leading complaints of three-blade systems). Also, higher speed means higher friction, and therefore, higher wear and maintenance concerns. During design and research phases gusty and high wind conditions have been considered and addressed. Thanks to its daily reliable power generation, a smaller battery bank can be utilized. Wind power offers both environmental and health benefits. Wind is a widespread, inexhaustible resource with over 90% of states having wind resources that could be efficiently developed.

Wind energy aids with lowering emissions, reducing smog and eliminating a major source of acid rain. Cleaner air means healthier air especially for people with respiratory disabilities. The growth potential for wind is staggering: development of just 10% of the 10 windiest states could provide more than enough energy to displace emissions from coal-fired power plants. Now is a great time to act on your interest in wind generation. The federal government is encouraging wind power adoption with financial incentives to reduce “out of pocket” expense through USDA grants and loans as well as personal tax credits for residential usage of small wind. Many state and local incentives may also be available as well. Triad WindGen has been designed and manufactured, in-house, at Merrick Machine Company by a team of professional engineers and dedicated fabricators. Backed by over 50 years of machine manufacturing experience and headquartered in Alda, NE, the system is proudly made in the windy Midwest USA. With many Fortune 500 customer accounts, as well as a host of small business clients, the Merrick family of companies, in a limited partnership, produces a wide range of products serving almost every area of the economy including products for the energy, housing, commercial building, material handling, recreation, agricultural, brewery, cookware, automotive, plumbing, manufacturing and medical industries in both the domestic and international markets. For questions about Triad WindGen, to further discuss specifications, or to learn how to become a dealer, please feel free to call 800-568-7423 (ext. 126), and be sure to visit our web-site www.triadwindgen.com.

What’s the link between carbs and performance? Nutrition From Page 6 nutrients found in forages such as hay, grass, beet pulp, and soybean hulls are the main suppliers of insoluble carbohydrates. Balancing Carbohydrates Feeding excess amounts of soluble carbohydrates present in grain often cause the most trouble. The starches, when broken down in the stomach and small intestine, are thought to release a surplus of glucose and insulin into the blood stream. Excessive starch and sugar intake can lead to metabolic upsets in both the young developing horses and older animals. High levels of starch

and sugar have been associated with hyperexcitability and behavioral problems; when residual starches enter the cecum and are left to ferment, colic and associated gastrointestinal disorders can result. Insoluble carbohydrates (fiber), on the other hand, are fundamental to an efficient digestive system, and therefore should not be compromised in an effort to reduce starches and sugars in the diet.

pounds of hay and may be fed even more depending on its workload and condition.

Fat, especially, is shown to be effective in helping to control the rate at which glucose is released into the system.

all over the world compete,” said Jeanne A. “Farnam will be helping me contribute to history - the first time WEG will be outside of Europe, and I’ll be there. I can’t wait.” Also arriving on Sept. 30, for a five-day trip for two in Lexington was Linda R. from Virginia. “We are so excited to be going to the games,” said Linda R. “I’m sure it will be a once-in-a-lifetime event to see equines and equestrians of this caliber.” On Oct. 5, when the Jumping competition is scheduled to begin at WEG, Norman Z. will arrive in Lexington from New York to begin his five-day trip for two. “As a boy growing up in the Bronx, the only horse I saw was the pony ride in the Bronx Zoo,” said Norman Z. “I’m thrilled to be going to Kentucky Blue Grass country to see the world’s greatest equestrian event.” Tom G. from Michigan will also be landing in Lexington on Oct. 5, when the Jumpers will be competing at WEG, for a five-day trip for two. “We own an 80-acre farm in Michigan,” said Tom G. “We have watched jumping events on TV for years and to be able to actually attend this event is a dream come true.” Winners of the two Reining Grand Prize Packages declined their prizes.

LEXINGTON, KY - One of America’s finest songwriters, Lyle Lovett, will bring the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games to a vibrant finale at the October 10 closing ceremonies in Lexington, KY. Known for his versatility and musicality across many genres, from country and bluegrass to swing, folk ballads, gospel and blues, the four-time Grammy Award winner and his Large Band will provide a musical bookend to the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games’ closing ceremonies’ celebration of iconic moments in U.S. history and culture. Lovett has celebrated nearly 30 years of hits including “If I Had a Boat,” “Nobody Knows Me,” “South Texas Girl,” “That’s Right (You’re Not from Texas),” “She’s No Lady,” and his groundbreaking single, “Cowboy Man.” On his 14th album, “Natural Forces” released last year, Lovett croons a poignant line that speaks to his equestrian spirit: “Home is where my horse is.” Lovett’s connection to the Games is not limited to the closing ceremonies. As a Texas native, he breeds and raises quarterhorses for reining, competes non-professionally as a rider, and is involved in equestrian charity work. One of his horses, Smart and Shiny, is slated to be ridden by Italy’s Marco Ricotta in Reining. “Lyle Lovett is one of America’s greatest living singers and songwriters,” said Dr. Everett McCorvey, executive producer of the opening and closing ceremonies. “As the curtain

Nancy Harm and her Arabian horses from Harmony Acres recently participated in Hamtramck’s Labor Day Polish Parade. In this parade, they use English tack. Riders, banner carriers and escorts all wore authentic hand-beaded Polish vests and costumes. Nancy says thunderstorms were predicted for the day, but they managed to escape all but a few drops that didn’t even wet out the costumes or tack! She sends out a thanks to everyone who helped, and a special thanks to Dave and Mariah. See a detailed story and photos on Harmony Acres Arabians in the November issue of Equine Times!

MGLI celebrates 34th anniversary

0000600526

EAST LANSING, MI — MGLI is geared up to bring you a fantastic 34th anniversary event! With over 1,200 draft horses from the U.S. and Canada, The Michigan Great Lakes International Draft Horse Show and Pull (MGLI) is the largest annual draft horse event in North America. MGLI’s annual 4-day event, held this year Oct. 14-17, features some of the finest Belgians, Clydesdales, Shires, Percherons and mules that have ever performed in an arena or in the field - anywhere! MGLI is the only event in the world to feature halter classes, hitching, plowing, pulling and riding for draft horse

breeds and mules at the same time and location. These elegant and massive horses, which weigh over a ton, compete in single horse hitch through the entire range of eight-horse hitch classes. These “big boys” will also demonstrate their raw power in the light and heavyweight pulling contests during which they pull a truck-mounted dynamometer, and during the “barnyard pull” teams test their horsepower with a weighted sled. To see these heavy horses perform the tasks that they were bred for, be sure to visit the plowing matches and field events on the East side of the Pavilion, where admission is free. And, English and western saddle classes demonstrate that these gentle giants can be ridden as well. Commercial exhibits jam-pack the pavilion offering thousands of unique equine items, and the major breed associations are on hand to promote their breeds and answer questions. The 2010 Michigan Great Lakes International is Oct. 1417, 2010. Gates open Thursday and Sunday at 8:30 a.m., and Friday and Saturday at 7:30 a.m. The event will be held at the Pavilion for Agriculture & Livestock Education at Michigan State University, East Lansing, MI. Parking is free. For admission costs or for more information, visit MGLI’s website at www.mgli.org.

Country Critters putting the fun back in open horse shows From the Coshocton (OH) Tribune COSHOCTON, OH - The tooth fairy and the devil rode side by side on horseback Sunday, Sept. 5 at the Coshocton County Fairgrounds. The costume competition was one of many for fun classes, along with regular contest classes, at the first Country Critters Getti-Up and Go Horse Show. Although turnout was sparse, giving the younger children a chance to compete and have fun was the main point of the event. “There’s nothing for the kids to do. They hardly ever do open shows in Coshocton,” club advisor Sally Brookover said. “It’s a preview for the county fair too, so the kids and horses can get used to the arena.” The costume competition was won by Jaiden Neff, 8, Dresden, as the fairy, who got a bag of horse food. Hailie Brookover, 9, Coshocton, as the devil came in second and received a horse comb. “I thought it would be fun,” Neff said on her first time doing such a competition. Hailie said she can’t wait to join 4-H this coming year. She’s been riding in horse shows since she was five and has had her horse Daisy for the past two years. “I like the horse. She’s cute, she’s funny, she’s awesome,” Hailie said. Other events included a pop drinking contest where two rode back to back and the person in front had to hold a bottle of pop over their shoulder for the other person to drink. Sister duo Kelsie Williamson, 9, and Jaylinn Williamson, 6, Warsaw, found that contest literally hard to swallow. “It’s great. It keeps them out of trouble,” Jason Williamson said of his daughters doing horse shows. Some activities participants didn’t need a horse for a cakewalk that saw children just walking around the outside edge of the arena. A boot race had the kids with one shoe off race to grab their other shoe, put it on and sprint back to the start. Nathan Neff, 8, Dresden won a hat for the boot race and Mason Williamson, 3, Warsaw, won a yellow icing smiley face for the cake walk.

Cutting at Congress,” said Chuck Smith, Ohio Quarter Horse Association Director and head of the Cutting Steering Committee. “So we put our heads together and came up with the Congress Cutting Shootout.” Classes sending their winners to the Congress Cutting Shootout include the $2,000 Limited Rider, $15,000 Limited Amateur, $35,000 Non-Pro and $50,000 Limited Amateur. Contestants will compete head to head for the brand new trailer from 4Star just before the most anticipated cutting event at Congress, the NCHA/Mercuria World Series of Cutting. By putting this event directly before the NCHA/Mercuria World Series of Cutting finals, Smith hopes to build up enthusiasm and excitement, as well as increase the presence of amateur and non-pro cutters at Congress in future years. The All American Quarter Horse Congress is the world’s largest single-breed horse show, with more than 18,000 horse show entries. Held every year in October, Congress attracts more than 650,000 people to the Columbus area and generates more than $110 million for the central Ohio economy.

SWMHBC Southwestern Michigan Horse & Buggy Club Aug. 27, 2010 The meeting was called to order by President Margie Godines at 7 p.m. The secretary’s minutes and treasurer’s report were not available. We would like to extend a “get well wish” to Linda Dohm. She fell and sustained a spiral break to her left leg. I’m sure she would appreciate some cards and phone calls since she is confined to a hospital bed or wheelchair. Thanks to Jerry Baker and Eric Goetzinger for coordinating the Buggy Club display at the 2010 Van Buren Youth Fair. Thanks also to those who either brought carriages and/or worked at the booth. We’ve had beautiful driving weather on our camping trip up here in Irons. All of the horses received plenty of

MFTA Michigan Fox Trotter Association It has been a chore trying to ride with this heat and humidity, deerflies, B52s and rain but the weather cooperated for the Aug. 7 ‘Tweak That Gait clinic,’ again held at the Ostrom’s Paladin Farm in Charlotte, MI. A number of riders and auditors attended to learn how to round pen and gait under saddle properly. Clinician, Jim McKenney of McKenney Ranch in Yale, MI, did an outstanding job working to improve those horses and riders. Everyone left satisfied with the personal attention that they

The next Association meeting will be held Sept. 25 at 11 a.m. again at the Ostrom’s (1759 Benton Road, Charlotte, MI). It will be a potluck and ride, so bring your contribution to the meal and your horse. We have a lot of things to discuss for the coming year so please attend and help us choose what to plan in 2010/2011. We promise to keep it short. We are also taking names of MFT stallion owners who would like to demonstrate their horse at the 2011 Stallion Expo in March. You must be a current member of the MFTA, too. Let Chuck Fanslow know this month if you want to do this (clf222@yahoo.com). Chuck wrote an article about the June Shore-to-Shore ride and the Foxtrotters in it. It will be published in the MFTHBA Journal in the future. Are you looking to buy a Foxtrotter? Consult the classifieds page of michfoxtrotters.com as there are quite a few really nice ones advertised on there. Charleen Ostrom has decided to run again for the MFTHBA Region 8 BOD position. She did such a good job these past two years, let’s let her continue. Your ballot should arrive in the mail shortly. Please vote! Marilyn Mannino MFTA Secretary

SHTRA Sleepy Hollow Trail Riders Association Don’t forget SHTRA’s last 2010 campover night - Ichabod Crane Day - October 9 & Oct. 10 “Spooky Ride” fundraiser by the Double M 4H Club. Draft horse wagon rides will be given Sat. from noon to 2 p.m. at the swimming beach parking lot. We will be needing lots of volunteers to help with staging this unique event with wagon rides, pumpkin bowling, scary feeling box, face painting and etc. One thing is sure — the Headless Horseman will be looking for that old schoolmaster Ichabod. They are brought back to life for this weekend! Costumes are welcomed to help the spirit of the weekend’s festivities. Volunteers are to gather at the Horseman’s Staging Area at 10:30 a.m. Coffee and a snack will await the early birds. We’ll depart via the wagons for the beach area where the rides/games will be held. A potluck dinner will be at 3 p.m. for the volunteers and wagon support teams. SHTRA will furnish the brats and dogs. Bring a dish to pass. Campfire and a

glowstick ride Sat. evening. Check our website for pictures from past Ichabods — www.shtra.org.

Contact Gale (517-290-7624)

for info. Aug. 20-22 found many SHTRA members riding at Ionia Trail Rider’s “Stuff The Camp” weekend. Hosts Gale and Lori Moore with others from each group had a great time riding, eating and visiting. Gale and his posse are masters at grilling! A poker run was held and funds were raised for Ionia’s trails needs. Thanks to all who participated. If you haven’t rode or camped at Ionia, it’s a lovely place to ride all day long. We’ll definitely plan another weekend in 2011 at Ionia! Don’t forget Ionia’s Chili Cook-Off weekend is Oct. 15-17. Yum! Get cooking your favorite recipe and you might win a prize. Hint: a muffin tin is a great way to sample the different batches. 28 kinds last year! Don’t miss this annual event. Call Gale (517-290-7624) for info.
