FROM THE ORGANIZERS

Dear Friends of Hipico Santa Fe, Hipico Santa Fe turns five this year! It is hard to believe that Hipico Santa Fe and our signature event, the Santa Fe Summer Series, have been a part of the horse show circuit in the Southwest since 2015. That year, in less than six months, we worked with lightning speed to install new proprietary blend textile arenas, thousands of feet of arena fencing, an RV park, sound system, 300 stalls, new wells and water lines, an abundance of electricity to various corners of the site, and provided long-overdue maintenance to our beautiful grass fields. In 2019, the Hipico site and our offerings continue to advance. Our campus has been filled with new activity in the past year, from lacrosse tournaments to Wolfhound shows, regional Arabian championships to dressage competitions, and clinics of all disciplines, from showjumping to equitation to performance horsemanship, to name a few. We are grateful to our local and regional horse community that continues to encourage and support us as we grow into a multi-disciplinary event center that places hospitality at the center of everything we do. New to the Summer Series this year, we are excited to host the USHJA 2019 Zone 7/8 Platinum Individual and Team Jumper Championships during Sonrisa Week, July

Brian Gonzales and Guy McElvain and their families welcome you to Hipico Santa Fe. Below, the partners on a ride in Canyon de Chelly in Arizona.

24-28. And, by popular demand, we are pleased to offer the 2nd Annual Battle of the Flags, which sprang to life in 2018 thanks to the highly competitive efforts of a few of our most illustrious competitors who saw an opportunity to settle, at least for a year, the question of which state deserves to fly its flag on the tallest flagpole in our Grand Prix arena. Will New Mexico be able to vanquish Texas, Colorado, and California again in 2019? What other states will join in the team fun? Don’t miss this class, Saturday, August 10, to find out! Many of our crowd-pleasing favorites are back, including the Sale Horse Exhibition Class, Fiesta Sale Horse Auction, Sandia BMW & MINI Ride-and-Drive, All-in-One Grand Prix, World Champion Hunter Rider Member Event, National and International Hunter Derbies, Chorizo Weiner Dog Races and weekly Grands Prix, to name a few. See the full class schedule in this program for details! And, since it is our 5th birthday, we gave ourselves the gift of a 5th week of summer horse showing! Join us, August 1418, 2019, for the inaugural Santa Fe International CSI2* and see why Split Rock Jumping Tour is the talk of the show jumping world, providing a truly entertaining international show jumping event in the United States. We look forward to seeing you this summer and thank you for your support of Hipico Santa Fe! Sincerely, THE ORGANIZERS OF HIPICO SANTA FE

The Coors Family and Glee White wish all riders the best of luck. THE MAN IN THE ARENA It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, and comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat. —Theodore Roosevelt

ROOTING FOR THE HOME TEAM BATTLE OF THE FLAGS RETURNS TO THE SANTA FE SUMMER SERIES

Team New Mexico bested Texas, Colorado, and California in the first Battle of the Flags.

MARY NEIBERG

I

T STARTED WITH THE DISTRIBUTION OF HANDMADE NEW MEXICO STATE FLAGS. The excitement escalated as team members ran (or drove ATVs) across the Grand Prix field, various state flags held high. Then came the competition itself—a 1.20m jumper class that had spectators shouting and waving for their home teams. For Santa Fe Summer Series 2018 spectators, some friendly state rivalry and impromptu competition spawned the inaugural Battle of the Flags. Teams from Colorado, Texas, New 32

Mexico, and California went head-to-head to jump it out for bragging rights. Now a formalized class in 2019, each team will consist of three to four riders in a 1.20m jumper class; each

team will earn a point for each clear round. Teams of four can drop a score. New Mexico claimed the gold medal with a home field advantage for 2018. The team included Sarah Invicta Williams, Chenoa McElvain, Mike Elmore, and Trapp

O’Neill (who lives in Texas but was raised in Albuquerque—some cried “traitor”). Who will claim Official Bragging Rights and hoist their state flag at Hipico for the remainder of the year? Join the fun on Saturday, August 10 to find out.

SPLIT ROCK JUMPING TOUR COMES TO HIPICO SANTA FE Split Rock Brings New Mexico’s First FEI Show Jumping Competition. BY SARAH WILLIAMS

T

HE SHOW JUMPING TOUR KNOWN FOR FIST-PUMPING ACTION and spectator engagement is introducing New Mexico to its first taste of international show jumping competition. The Split Rock Jumping Tour Santa Fe International CSI2* will be held August 14-18, 2019, after the conclusion of the Hipico Santa Fe Summer Series. Described as an “unparalleled show jumping experience,” Split Rock is founded on creating a truly entertaining sporting event and aims to provide a tailored experience for every level of competitor, spectator, and sponsor. Split Rock fills a niche in elite, sport-agnostic competition with aspects such as all-inclusive entry packages for competitors, custom sponsorship packages, and spectator access to vendors, food, family activities, and live music. “[Split Rock] brings more high-level competition and variety to the area,” says Guy McElvain, co-founder of Hipico Santa Fe. “It fits well with our style.” Split Rock Jumping Tour and Hipico Santa Fe were both founded and created on the model of participant engagement and holistic experience. It’s almost natural for the international series to expand its western reach with a stop at Hipico. Split Rock founder and president Derek Braun has been in the show jumping industry his entire life. From junior rider to an international grand prix rider representing the United States Equestrian Team, Braun has taken his global experiences to produce a modern show series in America. Launched in 2014 with inaugural competitions held in 2015,

34

Ansgar Holtgers Jr. and Queretaro 2 celebrated after winning the $1,000 1.30m Med. Jr/Am Speed class at the Lexington International CSI2* in 2018.


Split Rock has rapidly expanded beyond its home base in Lexington, Kentucky, and now includes competitions in Ohio and California. Braun and McElvain first met in 2018 while competing at HITS Coachella in Thermal, California. Braun was promoting Split Rock and aiming to further develop the series in the West. “Derek came with a very good reputation [with] an innovative, modern approach to the sport of show jumping,” says McElvain. “[We] thought it fit well with the style and approach of the Santa Fe Summer Series.” “[Hipico] was the first to bring Grand Prix show jumping to New Mexico,” says McElvain, when he and partner Brian Gonzales launched the Grand Prix de Santa Fe in 2004. “Now, [with Split Rock], we will have the first FEI-rated show jumping in New Mexico. We are doing our best to bring our area up to par with the rest of the world and give our customers the same opportunities experienced the world over.” Split Rock Jumping Tour is based in Lexington, Kentucky, and hosts competitions at World Equestrian Center in Columbus, Ohio, Sonoma Horse Park in Sonoma, California, and now Hipico in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

What’s Happening at Hipico

LEARNING AND PRACTICE

The Master of Faster brings wisdom and laughter to Hipico Santa Fe. by MADELINE SKRAK | Illustrations by HOLLY TYLER

EVALYN BEMIS

The Master of Faster at work in the Hipico arena

H

IPICO SANTA FE’S LEARNING & PRACTICE SERIES HAS BROUGHT A VARIETY OF EXPERTISE TO THE ARENAS, including dressage master Jeremy Steinberg, Western expert Les Vogt, an opportunity to school the AIG Million course, and, perhaps the highlights of the year for hunter/jumper riders, Richard Spooner and Julie Winkel. Who better to impart the lesson of “forward first” than the Master of Faster himself? Richard Spooner zoomed into Hipico Santa Fe on October 26-28 as part of the Learning & Practice Series. Twenty-two riders came from Colorado and all over New Mexico for sage words from the international grand prix competitor.

SOUVENIR PROGRAM 2019

39


LOOKING FORWARD Throughout his career, Richard Spooner has sealed over 100 grand prix victories, been named Grand Prix Rider of the Year three times, appeared in multiple World Cup Finals, and ridden on both the United States Equestrian Team and USA Nations Cup Team. In an interview leading up to the clinic, Spooner shared, “I am there for the students and not myself. I am there to give whatever I can and whatever I’ve learned. I hope everyone leaves at the end of the weekend with new things to work on and some zest for show jumping!” Spooner’s presence challenged the riding community to bring their ‘A’ game to the arena.

BRINGING FORWARD Some riders were visibly nervous the first day; the jitters dissipated quickly after Spooner humorously shared accounts of his personal challenges. This was indicative of his style: He possesses both the confidence of an Olympian and the humility of a once-novice equestrian. His larger-thanlife presence filled the indoor arena and warmed the chilly bleachers with laughter amongst the spectators and camaraderie among the riders. The clinic revolved around the work between jumps. Overarching themes included horsemanship, going back to the basics, connecting the dots of a horse’s training, creating chaos by empowering the horse’s hind end, building bascule and flexibility through educated bending, creatively problem-solving to fit each horse, and thinking deeply into the horse’s mentality—all achieved through the “forward first” mindset. To underscore these points, he structured the clinic with flatwork, cavalettis, and attention to spooking on the first day, followed by flatwork, figure-8 exercises, and gymnastics the second day, and courses the last day.

ty and appropriateness of tack; and ended with a Q&A that included auditors. The audience clung to every word—smiling at Spooner’s sense of humor and nodding at his relatable metaphors. Then Spooner strategically slowed down. He offered a thoughtful analysis of the riders and their horses. Whenever someone had an issue, he gave them one-on-one attention and often rode their horse. For example, one rider didn’t want to continue an exercise because she was afraid. Spooner patiently, masterfully, broke it down into smaller parts to help her through the exercise. He used the problem as an opportunity to address embracing, accepting, and understanding one’s fears. This conversation allowed her to end the clinic on a confidence-building note. While some trainers


Working on basics was a priority, always starting with forward first.

might have seen her fear as a weakness, Spooner saw it as a chance for growth.

FLATWORK FIRST Spooner’s teachings always came back to square one: “When you start doing your flatwork, think ‘forward first.’ Use that energy to get the hind end moving. Everybody resists the idea of going forward first, but this is the first step to doing anything,” he said. He wove this common thread into every exercise. Going forward prepares the horse to work on suppleness and bending. He encouraged riders to add leg (forward!) in response to pulling. Horses, he explained, often use their mouths as decoys to distract the rider when their body is really what needs work. “For every basic problem a horse has, I have to try multiple ways to alleviate that problem,” said Spooner. “There’s no exact

formula for helping each horse, so that’s why one must think like a horse!” When Spooner rode a participant’s horse to demonstrate how to resolve a problem or to reinforce his points, he narrated in motion to help the audience understand his logic on horseback. He exaggerated his body position, so his audience better understood what he was asking of the horse. Some horses would buck dramatically in protest as he asked them to use their bodies and round their backs. When this happened, Spooner laughed and loosened his reins—appearing as unaffected as if he were riding a toy rocking horse. He made a quick and magical connection with every horse he rode.

When you have such important foundational principles reinforced, it can be such a great ‘jumping off’ point for wherever your horse is, and your riders are at that moment,” she said. “I walked away from that

clinic feeling like he had helped me reach my vision in a deeper way.” One piece of wisdom from the weekend was particularly poignant. “The minute you feel as if you know what you’re doing is the minute your riding begins to regress,” Spooner said. “Never become closed off to new ideas. I learn from every horse I ride.” Spooner passed on the tools for riders to advance their riding with zest; now, they must activate his teachings to take the next step in their riding careers.

Circles: Spooner had riders practice small circles where they focused on pushing the horse’s hips out, pointing their shoulders in, keeping a low outside rein, and softening with the inside rein. He would work with them for several minutes until their horse was successfully on three different tracks with an engaged hind end. Repetition was key in teaching this and the exercise is still widely practiced by those who attended the clinic. With this exercise, once you get it right, you can truly feel the horse’s body and will know when it’s correct!

HUNTER CLASSES DEMYSTIFIED

P

ERHAPS YOU ARE FAMILIAR with

jumper classes, where horse and rider complete a course of obstacles as quickly as possible without knocking down any elements. The entry with the fastest time and fewest penalties wins. While jumper classes are popular with spectators for heart-stopping action, hunter competitors navigate their courses in quiet elegance, offering a different kind of experience for the audience. Here, we offer a primer on what’s required to be in the ribbons in hunter classes. While hunters also compete over a course of jumps, these horses are judged subjectively on style, way of going, and form over fences. Speed, sharp turns, change in pace – elements that help jumpers succeed and beat the clock – are penalized in hunter classes. The concept behind the hunters harkens back to foxhunting centuries ago, when the

44

sport required well-mannered, sensible and athletic horses to carry riders for miles and over stone walls, fences and ditches, while following a pack of hounds in pursuit of a fox. Show hunters evolved to recognize horses suited to foxhunting and reward those displaying the best style. Ideally, a hunter maintains the same cadence throughout the course and creates an arc through its neck and back over every jump. The horse consistently takes off for each jump from the correct distance, or about six feet away from a 3-foot jump. In addition, the horse should spring effortlessly and efficiently over jumps, raising its knees and folding them evenly, while maintaining a relaxed, yet keen, attitude. Consistency is the name of the game: Horses are penalized for displaying poor form over the fence, leaving the ground in front of a fence from too close or far away, for changes in pace

or rhythm, and other inconsistent behavior. Based on each jump and a general way of going – namely a relaxed, rhythmic stride – as well as disposition, the judge scores each round, deducting points for errors or flaws in the horse’s performance, style, or behavior. A refusal (when the horse does not jump, but stops or ducks to the side) or a rail knocked off the jump is a major penalty. Merely touching a fence is marked as a minor fault. The rider’s job is to regulate the horse’s pace and rhythm, anticipating the approach to each fence to optimize the horse’s jumping style, and correct any movement that might detract from performance. While the rider isn’t judged, his or her job is to make the whole package look effortless. The rider should show as little movement as possible. Hunter divisions include an “under saddle” or “hack” class with no jumps. Entrants compete as a group and horses are judged on appearance, style, way of going, and stride. Ideally, a show hunter is relaxed, pleasant and confident, and displays smooth gaits and a long, flowing stride. Today, hunter classes are divided into segments for ponies, small horses, large horses,

46

junior riders, amateurs, and other specifics. Fence heights range from 18” to 4’+ based on size classification, as well as the experience of both the horses and riders. Courses incorporate straight paths from one jump to another and soft, sweeping turns; the obstacles are constructed with natural-colored rails, flower boxes, gates, and boxes depicting stone or brick walls to mimic obstacles found while foxhunting. Hunter derby classes offer elaborate, challenging courses designed to create options and decisions for both horse and rider. Often the rider must make judgment calls, considering how a turn or approach will showcase that horse’s talent, while maintaining a working pace and a fluid, round jumping style. Top scoring horses advance to a second round, comprising tighter turns and elements such as a trot fence, a jump approached at a gallop, a passage through a narrow gate, or other features uncommon in the hunter ring. The obstacles themselves are different, too; made with brush, logs, and other natural materials, the jumps are visually unusual to many horses. Derby winners are determined by the highest combined score from both rounds.

THE RIGHT KIND OF SHOW BUZZ by NATALIE DEFEE MENDIK

SIMPLE YOGA WARM-UPS FOR HUNTER RIDERS

C

OMPETITION JITTERS, LATE NIGHTS TRAVELING, hours in the saddle, and carrying heavy equipment can leave you tight and out of sorts—all when you should be at your show-ring best. Incorporating a few simple yoga practices into your warm-up can help quiet your nerves, strengthen your body and make it supple, and tap into your inner flow.

MIND AND BODY These days, we all know that yoga is good for you, but just how good may be surprising: The physical benefits include increased flexibility, strength, and circulation, in addition to protective effects on the spine, cartilage, and joints. With attention to breath and centeredness, yoga facilitates a quieter mental space, addressing the mind and body as one. In fact, a 2017 study at Coventry University in the United Kingdom found yoga, along with meditation and tai chi, can reverse the pro-inflammatory effects of stress at the molecular level.

TACK ROOM STARTERS Say goodbye to stiffness and tension with some simple poses in the barn before tacking up. Hampton, Virginia–based certified yoga instructor Kris Montgomery, who’s also a Grand Prix dressage rider, United States Dressage Federation Gold Medalist, and dressage trainer, walks us through her favorite preride yoga practice:

Standing Forward Folds Standing with your legs together and heels slightly apart, fold forward at your waist, allowing your arms to hang down and keeping your legs straight. Let gravity lengthen your spine. Allow the crown of your head to reach for the ground. With knees slightly bent, place your hands on your thighs and push your torso up. Next, standing with your feet hip-width apart, tip forward again at your waist, letting the crown of your head reach for the floor. Feel the angles of your feet create a different sensation in your back. If you need support, put your hands on a chair.

Forward Fold in the Chair Sitting in a chair with your ankles under your knees, tip your torso forward and let your hands reach for the floor. Breathe easy, letting your seat bones sink into the chair. Place your hands on your knees and push up.


Seated Twist in the Chair Sit back in your chair with your feet together. Place your left hand on the outside of your right knee and your right hand behind you. Gently twist your torso to the right. Soften into the twist, sinking into the chair. Repeat on the other side. Throughout these movements, maintain soft breathing, feeling your body stretch and soften. Standing and sitting forward folds lengthen the spine; the varied feet positions reach into different parts of the spine, helping release lower back tension. Twisting stimulates the spinal muscles and can help you sit tall from a place of relaxation.

in a show environment,” explains Danny Chapparo, certified yoga instructor and founder and owner of Ashva Yoga in Castle Rock, Colorado, where she specializes in equestrian yoga for all disciplines. This counterbalances the stress hormones produced by the “fight-or-flight” sympathetic nervous system. “When you use breath to calm the nervous system, the horse, as your mirror image, will become calmer as well, which is really helpful at shows,” she says. To find your optimal exhalation, Chapparo suggests first finding your natural inhalation rate; as you are riding, feel the horse’s rhythm and breathe in, counting as you do. To extend your exhalation, breathe out for double that count; for example, if you count to three as you are inhaling, count to six as you are exhaling. To get the feel of correct breathing, Chapparo recommends placing your dominant hand on the front of your stomach with your other hand on the small of your back. “Breathe deeply down into your belly,” she says. “Feel the expansion, and then push the last bit of air out with the exhalation. This awareness of your pelvic region will also help you relax more into your seat bones, as well. Then, in motion with the horse, you know this is where the breath needs to go—deep down into the center of gravity, which ultimately brings more connection in the saddle.”

‘Let it Go’ Warm Up Attention to your breath helps bring that relaxation to the horse. Montgomery recommends incorporating deep inhaling and exhaling in rhythm with the horse throughout your warmup, as well as shoulder shrugs that lift and drop the shoulders in time with the horse’s stride, allowing muscles to release tension. Your own relaxation can then positively influence the horse in a charged show environment. “Lengthening your exhalation calms the parasympathetic nervous system, which you want to nourish

TAKE IT HOME Like what you are feeling and want to try some more at home? Some fun poses you can do with your horse will bring a deeper connection with him, while also improving your own flexibility and strength. Chapparo tells us how:

Half Moon Stand next to your horse, feet hip-width apart and evenly grounded, with a hand on the withers and your hips parallel to the horse’s shoulders. Inhale as you bring your arm farthest from the horse up over your head and extend toward the horse. Allow yourself to gently balance against the horse, arching and lengthening your side as you breathe. Inhale again, and come back to your starting point.

Lord of the Dance Stand facing your horse, with the reins still over his neck. Place a hand on his shoulder and allow the leg on the same side of your body to sink down into the ground with your toes pointing toward the horse. Grasp your opposite foot, inhale, and lift your leg up behind you. Lean into your hand that’s on the horse, allowing your heart to come closer to the horse, and breathe, feeling the great thigh and shoulder stretch. Inhale and return to standing. If you cannot easily reach your foot, use a lead rope around your ankle and hold it with your hand. For these exercises, it’s important you’re with a reliable horse that doesn’t start out too fresh, so you can safely focus on yourself for a few minutes. For more yoga poses you can do with your horse, visit www. ashvayoga.com. “Yoga creates body awareness, which ultimately leads to greater feel,” says Montgomery. “This also helps you feel where you are holding tension, allowing you to release it. When we ride from a place of relaxation, we increase our ability to feel and influence the horse, no matter the discipline. With the mindbody connection, you stay more present with your horse, adding another level of feel and awareness to your riding. Riders with increased body awareness also have better timing with their aids and become more effective in influencing the horse.”

54


Cat-Cow Once you are mounted, the cat-cow, traditionally performed on hands and knees on the ground, becomes a perfect energizing sequence that improves spinal flexibility. Let your reins rest on your horse’s neck. Inhale and open your arms at shoulder height, palms facing forward, arching through your back. Look up to the sky, opening through your chest, shoulders, and core. Then exhale and bring your arms forward, palms together with your back rounded and belly button drawn in, sitting deep into your seat bones. Repeat several times to feel the rocking motion of your pelvis, which will allow you to find the perfect center for riding.

head downtown to Canyon Road and surrounding neighborhood galleries that feature horse-focused art. Check out Barbara Meikle Gallery, Mountain Trails Fine Arts, and Manitou Galleries for a start. For some non-horsey fun, Meow Wolf is one of the city’s top attractions. The homegrown art collective got buy-in from “Game of Thrones” creator George R. R. Martin (also a Santa Fe resident) for the construction of “The House of Eternal Return,” an immersive art installation. Visitors travel through a Victorian house into fantastical realms that its team of artists created. Live music on the weekends features both quirky and popular acts.

The world-class Santa Fe Opera, north of Santa Fe in Tesuque, presents a mix of classic and debut pieces presented in an amphitheater with sunset views often as dramatic as the on-stage action. The 2019 season opens with Puccini’s “La Bohéme” (through July 19), one of the world’s most popular operas; a new production of Mozart’s “Così fan tutte” (July 13–26); the company’s first-ever production of “Jenůfa,” by a Czech composer; and Bizet’s “Les Pêcheurs de Perles” (The Pearl Fishers). The season also includes the world premiere of “The Thirteenth Child,” by composer Poul Ruders with a libretto by David and Becky Starobin. An elegant, over-the-top tailgate is a hallowed local tradition at the Opera. You can purchase sampler boxes and full dinners ahead of your performance, or just drop into Whole Foods on your way to Tesuque (about a half hour from Hipico).

OUTSIDE THE FENCE Hiking, mountain biking, trail riding, and golf galore are almost all right out of Hipico’s back gate. Just south of Hipico is a hiking trail that takes you to ancient petroglyphs. La Cieneguilla Petroglyph Site is home to one of the largest collections of Native rock art (called glyphs) in the American West. From the main Hipico entrance, turn right on Paseo Real. In about a mile and a half, there’s a small parking area on the west side of the road. Follow the arrow-marked trail for a 5- to 10-minute walk to the basalt cliffs where the petroglyphs are located. You can continue your walk on a 2.4mile loop. For a nice hike, hack, or mountain bike ride, head out the southwest gate (near the Hipi Hacienda RV Park) and follow a well-worn path (thanks to the foxhunters who call Hipico home) that will take you over the hill to a two-track road (head right). It offers a panoramic view of the city, the mountains, and Hipico from the top of the hill. You’ll encounter a barb-wire fence gate, but the land is public, so it’s okay to go on through (just close it behind you). Ambitious road cyclists will appreciate a loop that heads south from Hipico, into the community of La Cienega (the road here is narrow with not

THINGS TO KNOW: The public lands around Santa Fe are just that—public. Respect the ranchers who graze their cattle here and close all gates behind you. When hiking or riding, watch where you walk. There are rattlesnakes in the surrounding rocky hills around Hipico.

much shoulder), across the freeway, down the frontage road, east on Bonanza Creek Rd. to NM 14. Stop for a beer at Bear Creek Brewery. Head back north on NM 14 to the intersection of 599 and return to Hipico. The loop is about 35 to 40 miles. Golfers, too, can find plenty to keep them busy in between horse show classes. The two closest courses are the Marty Sanchez Links de Santa Fe right off the Caja del Rio Road, and the semi-private Santa Fe Country Club. And, for some golf that also gives back, join in the fun at the 2nd


Annual Summer Breeze Tournament, Monday, July 29 at the Towa Club at Buffalo Thunder Resort. Proceeds benefit the Santa Fe Waldorf School Scholarship fund.

NEARBY BEER Heading to Tractor Supply? Stop in at the nearby Tumbleroot Tap Room and Distillery. They make their own vodka, gin, and agave (aka Tequila), and it’s worth noting that this relative newcomer is a favorite hangout of Hipico staff. Across I-25, Santa Fe Brewing Company, the state’s oldest craft brewery, serves up a variety of brews, a patio party, and live music many nights during the summer. Happy Camper IPA and Nut Brown are flagships, but it has several seasonals on tap, too.

FEEL THE BURN Summer Series green chile lovers will appreciate Horseman’s Haven—it’s in the back of a gas station, and dishes out unfussy New Mexican food in an equally laid-back setting. Warning: This restaurant is known for its blazing hot green chile, so order accordingly. This one’s a favorite of the

local foxhunters, who’ll repair here on a winter day when the weather’s too crummy to ride (and there’s plenty of space for trailer parking). Pick up a bag of feed and a cinnamon roll at San Marcos Café and Feed Store, on NM 14. This homey breakfast and lunch spot – and yes, also a feed store – is known for its plethora of peacocks. The menu leans brunch-y with French toast or the restaurant’s aforementioned cinnamon rolls, to standards such as enchiladas (get it topped with an egg to feel truly New Mexican). It’s often packed on weekend mornings so plan accordingly. Since you’re heading that way, you might stop in for a visit with silversmith Clint Mortensen. Mortensen makes the custom buckles given out as much sought after prizes and sponsor gifts during the Summer Series, and the Mortensen Silver and Saddles property features a small western town that’s sometimes used as a movie set, a shop filled to the brim with finely crafted (mostly Western) tack, silverwork, and, most days, Clint himself at the bench—oh, and how could we forget? Clyde the buffalo. Find Mortensen Silver and Saddles (and Clyde) on Bonanza Creek Road about 15 minutes from Hipico.

ALTERNATIVE THERAPY GOES MAINSTREAM by AMBER HEINTZBERGER | PHOTOS BY CAITLYN FURLONG

PROMOTING SOUNDNESS IN HUNTER/JUMPERS

I

N THE QUEST TO KEEP COMPETITION HORSES SOUND, FIT, AND HEALTHY, “alternative” therapies have become increasingly available through many veterinarians. Horses that compete as show jumpers and hunters can benefit from massage, chiropractic, acupuncture, and other therapies that can promote soundness, enhance performance, and relieve the strain of training and showing. Dr. Wendy Leich of Furlong and Associates in Oldwick, New Jersey, is certified in acupuncture therapy and Veterinary Orthopedic Manipulation, a form of animal chiropractic care. She also served as the United States Equestrian Team’s acupuncturist for the eventing team for the 2000 through 2012 Olympic Games. When searching for any sort of practitioner to work on your horse, Dr. Leich suggests asking

your veterinarian and horse trainer. “Basically, it seems like almost every big equine practice, and a lot of small ones too, are having alternative medicine people on staff,” says Dr. Leich. “When I started doing acupuncture I was one of the only ones doing it; now I think we all realize good massage therapists and good physiotherapists are out there.” She recommends finding someone trained in both acupuncture and chiropractic. “I find it very useful putting the two things together,” she adds. “The two are very closely aligned.” Myofascial release, a form of massage therapy, breaks up scar tissue that exists in muscle tissue, tendons, and in the fascia and nerves between muscles. It can both alleviate and prevent lameness issues in horses when performed regularly. Acupuncture is a system of integrative med-

icine that involves inserting needles into the body at specific points to relieve pain. Equine chiropractic is a form of manual therapy that focuses on restoring the spinal column’s normal movement and function to promote healthy neurologic activity, which in turn supports effective musculoskeletal function. “It’s about managing myofascial release, muscle tension sites, and really trying to understand that basically, we can change the soft tissue, but we can’t change the horse’s bones,” says Dr. Leich. “But a lot of horses with bony pathology function well if we can deal with their muscle system and their neuromuscular system. Chiropractors don’t really move bones around, they relieve muscle tension to help create better alignment.” Dr. Leich has two horses in their teens, both of

whom competed to preliminary in eventing and are now competing at Intermediare in dressage; neither have ever needed joint injections. “’I’ve been working on them, probably once a month, since they were young horses. I tell my clients you can stay ahead of the game if you can do maintenance instead of fixing problems,” says Dr. Leich. “We can be very predictive of lameness issues,” notes Dr. Leich. “Using acupuncture and chiropractic, we can certainly go from a horse needing a joint injection every six months to every 12 months. At barns where my husband [former US Olympic Team veterinarian, Dr. Brendan Furlong] and I were both working, he’d complain because he’d only get to inject their joints once a year!” These alternative therapies are not a new idea. “I think that new literature coming out on the ‘myofascial exoskeleton’ or ‘anatomy trains’ mirrors the acupuncture meridians,” Dr. Leich says. “We have to realize the ancient Chinese came up with these meridian pathways 3,000 years ago, before X-rays and things, and they hold pretty true, particularly when you look at myofascial

release. You can get just so far with muscular release, but myofascial release is a slow, deliberate manipulation and often addresses the last 10 percent of discomfort that a horse is experiencing.” While alternative therapies are helpful, Dr. Leich emphasizes that horses need to be ridden correctly and regularly to stay sound and healthy. She recommends regular work in a round frame with abdominal lift and engagement. Horses also need to maintain their proprioceptive reaction, or the sense of knowing where their body is, by moving on different surfaces such as hard or uneven ground. If they are only ridden on meticulously groomed arena footing, it’s hard to keep them sound. Hacking out and even schooling on uneven surfaces, like a grass jumping field, will help address this issue. Beyond these therapies, Dr. Leich says she’s a fan of the underwater treadmill for fitness and rehabilitation in horses. “I think if you’ve got a horse that’s injured, a water treadmill is fabulous: They engage their core and lift their limbs in a very rhythmic manner. [And], on the treadmill they lift their topline and really strengthen the core and topline, using their legs without any pounding.” Overall, Dr. Leich says movement is essential for the well-being of performance horses and encourages competitors who are stabled at horse shows to keep this in mind. For horses that have limited mobility or turnout, she says a dry treadmill is a useful tool. “I try to get people to think of being in the stall as being in bed: you wouldn’t expect someone to lie in bed 23 hours a day and go be a serious athlete,” says Dr. Leich. “Horses are meant to be out and moving for 17 to 20 hours a day. If you can get them on a walker, hand grazing, almost anything is better than being in a stall unless you have a horse with a broken leg.” Want to reach out to Dr. Leich?

Shoeing the hunter/jumper is just one aspect that helps these athletes perform and feel their best.


A FARRIER’S PERSPECTIVE:

ENHANCING HUNTER AND JUMPER PERFORMANCE by RED RENCHIN Partial reprint from AMERICAN FARRIERS JOURNAL

FARRIERS HELP HORSES PERFORM THEIR BEST. Caption

T

O SAY THAT SHOEING SHOW HUNTERS AND JUMPERS IS A CHALLENGING JOB IS AN UNDERSTATEMENT. The competition is intense. Owners, trainers, and riders are constantly vigilant to ensure that horses are presented at their very best. The farrier is just one member of a team that includes the trainer, rider, veterinarian, groom, chiropractor, massage therapist, and an occasional horse psychic. The farrier’s job, obviously, is to shoe the horse, but it is also to use our experience to recommend shoeing changes to maintain performance.

ARND BRONKHORST

MOVEMENT OF THE HUNTER Trainers have different philosophies on changing things. Some are more assertive and willing to

experiment. The more conservative and cautious ones will tell you to replace what the horse is wearing and add, “Don’t change anything.” But hunter trainers will commonly ask if it is possible to “move one up,” which means the trainer would like a horse to move better for the “hack classes.” The basic tenets of making a hunter move at its best are quite simple. You shoe the front feet with aluminum shoes and keep the feet pain free. The process starts with a proper trim. The farrier and trainer should formulate a plan before you start. A good farrier will measure for length, the dorsal wall angle, and medial/lateral balance. And it helps to be patient: It usually takes three shoeing cycles before I can understand exactly how a particular foot grows. I am very careful about not removing too much foot the first time I shoe a new horse. Sometimes cli-

ents may think you left a foot too long, and they may comment. But take too much off and leave the horse sore and they may fire you. When a client asks to lower the heel and leave the toe longer, hoping to improve movement, I advise my colleagues not to do it. It will only result in problems for the horse.

Aluminum Shoes The vast majority of show hunters today compete in aluminum shoes in front. Whenever you add weight to a horse’s foot, you increase the effort it takes for that foot to move forward, hence the equilibrium of the weight will carry upward, making a more “trappy” trot. The best a horse will ever trot is barefoot, but that is not possible in most cases. There is a happy medium that will provide enough protection and support during the shoeing cycle. Aluminum shoes will make a good mover a better mover, but will not turn a bad mover into a good mover. Often, I am asked to put aluminum shoes on horses that are not kept in show-horse environments. An aluminum shoe is a show-horse shoe. Clients have to be realistic. You cannot treat a horse in aluminum shoes as a show horse on the weekend, but as a pasture horse for the rest of the week. The majority of my show horses are turned out in a paddock for about an hour a day, ridden for a half hour to 45 minutes, and spend the rest of the time in the stall. This schedule is to preserve their shoes, feet, and legs. Prolonged

turnout will destroy aluminum shoes in a matter of days and then the feet will disintegrate, too. Horses that have poor feet or need extra turnout are much better off in steel shoes. Clients have to understand that each horse has his own way of going and that the good ones are freaks. That is why they are very expensive. It is more difficult to be competitive with a horse that isn’t a good mover, but it can be done.

The Hind Feet It is unusual to see anything other than steel shoes on the hind feet. Aluminum shoes worn behind offer no tangible benefits in making a hunter move better. On the hind feet, they wear out quickly and spread out, pulling the walls apart. Because of over-reach concerns, I prefer to square the toes of hind shoes, set them back to just ahead of the white line, and round off the wall in front of the shoe.

Studs For clients that show in big venues, I routinely drill and tap all four shoes on my hunters so screw-in studs can be used. Studs are like shoes: They are a necessary evil. Slipping takes the heart right out of a good horse, making it unsure and too cautious. I let riders do the final judging on what studs to use, because they can feel what the horse needs for a particular course or arena. I tell my clients that it is much better to have stud holes and not need them, than to need them and not have them. To sum up, our job is to be part of a team to support our client and the horse.

BEHIND THE SCENES WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO PUT ON THE HIPICO SUMMER SERIES?

I

T’S TRUE WHAT THEY SAY: IT TAKES A VILLAGE TO RUN A VENUE LIKE HIPICO. And the members of that village are a diverse and interesting lot. Here’s a face-to-face chat with some of the people that keep the Santa Fe Summer Series ticking along.

Sarah Moses SPONSORSHIP MANAGER

I

MOVED TO SANTA FE in 2016 from Houston to teach middle school science. My mom suggested I contact Hipico about possible employment during the shows in order to meet people in the horse world. I started in 2017 and now I am a full-time employee. I rode on my college

72

equestrian team and have a background in dressage. Since joining the Hipico team I have been learning everything there is to know about hunters and jumpers. My favorite thing in the whole world is learning new things. I love doing research and once I was hired as the sponsorship manager I em-

braced the idea of delving into the businesses that support the Summer Series and to learn how we can best serve them. My approach is to see this as a mutually beneficial opportunity and to help our sponsors connect with their target audience. I look at our demographics to create marketing strategies. For example, in a survey we commissioned last year, 41 percent of our competitors came from Texas and overall, 26 states. So clearly we reach far beyond a Santa Fe audience. The best thing about working for Hipico is the people; the owners, the management team, and the competitors are all very supportive of one another. Plus it is just so much fun working here. I see our jobs here as the perpetual half-halt: to recheck and re-balance as part of a team.

Madeline Skrak MEDIA RELATIONS COORDINATOR

E

SSENTIALLY MY JOB IS TO BRING PEOPLE TO OUR SHOWS BY GETTING THE WORD OUT. Social media is a big part of that these days and in that regard, my age (23) is probably an advantage, as well as the fact that the horse world has really embraced Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, Instagram, and the like. I was on the Hunt Seat Team at Mount Holyoke College and took on the role as unofficial ‘social media butterfly’ to manage and grow their accounts. I also had a summer internship with the Chronicle of the Horse in 2017. That was great preparation for what I do now, like press releases,


e-blasts, newsletters, etc. During winter break I came to Santa Fe every day to ride with Chenoa McElvain to practice for IHSA Nationals. That was such a positive experience that I decided to show with her at Thermal. I met Guy and Sharon McElvain [partners in Hipico ownership], and the idea of working for Hipico last summer came up. I love Hipico. Coming from college where I had a tight-knit group of friends, I was a little intimidated starting my first post-grad job and not knowing anyone other than the McElvains. It may be cliché to say, but I do feel like my co-workers and those I’ve met through Hipico are family now. When the event team arrives on site before the Santa Fe Summer Series begins,

the venue really comes alive and the party begins! My other favorite aspect of the job is buzzing around the show to interview and chat with competitors, to celebrate their triumphs on our media platforms. And as a shameless plug, be sure to follow @hipico_santafe on Instagram and like us on Facebook!

special events includes two Olympics (London and Vancouver), seven Super Bowls, and the 2010 World Equestrian Games in Kentucky. My wife, Lisa, and I pack up our lives in Seattle and head to Santa Fe for two months because we enjoy the Hipico experience so much. This will be our third summer here and at this point we know all the staff, which really helps when we have to hit the ground running. Phyllis Gonzales, Rick Atchinson, and Sarah Moses are the heartbeat of the operation until we get here but one of the ways in which this team is so exceptional is that once we arrive, they are very comfortable handing it off to me. My job is all about making sure each and every participant has a superior

experience. Last year when Show Manager John McQueen and I were driving around the stables at the end saying goodbye to people, one woman wanted to tell us that she usually spends the summer showing in Colorado at Parker. She had heard nice things about Hipico so she came down with one horse for one week. She said she had so much fun that she plans to bring four horses this summer and stay all four weeks. That’s what we want to hear. Another competitor decided to fly over from London on a private plane with her horse and needed special arrangements made. You have to be ready for anything. I liken my job to taking people to the Land of Oz and making sure no one peeks behind the curtain.

LO ALEO HUMAN RESOURCES AND ADMINISTRATION

I

HIRE, CONTRACT, MANAGE ONBOARDING, AND OVERSEE DAILY OPERATIONS for HIPICO personnel, from a human resources and administration perspective—oversee contracts; outline job responsibilities; facilitate orientation and scheduling: support individual crew managers to conduct trainings and support needs of staff during the shows. The local ‘Workhorse Force’ cover so many of the important behind-the-scenes jobs, such as watering and dragging the footing in the arenas; barn management and feed/shavings deliveries; parking and spectator shuttles; grounds cleaning and waste removal. We have individual managers who oversee each crew. I manage travel arrangements, accom-

74

modations, and vehicle allocation for all contractors coming in from out of town. I coordinate radio and golf cart allocations and run guest golf cart rentals. And, I help with payroll and accounts payable/ receivable. While I come from the world of event production, I don’t come from the horse show world. This provides a source of entertainment. Even after four seasons at Hipico, I have yet to master the lingo. When I answer calls, I often repeat questions out loud so that in the background Phyllis Gonzales can translate for me. I have over 20 years experience in event production and management, including artist liaising at major music festivals, restaurant management, and transportation logistics for large sporting events such as the Super Bowl and NBA All-Star Games. I was raised running the Baystate Coin Show in Boston with my family, so I guess it is in my DNA. Our dynamic running those shows as a family reminds me a lot of how Hipico is run by their families—it’s nostalgic in the best way. I love the whole team; the owners and their families are such lovely people. Phyllis is literally one of my most favorite people in the world. If you need to find me during the Summer Series, I’ll be in the maroon room in the Clubhouse. I’ll probably be giggling madly with Phyllis in a fit of silliness—a natural byproduct of spending 14 hours/ day in a 12x12 foot room with someone for 40 days straight.

Lisa Anderson SPECIAL PROJECTS MANAGER

I

WAS FIRST HIRED BY HIPICO IN 2016. My life in Seattle combines several aptitudes just as my Hipico position requires me to wear many hats. I am an elementary teacher during the school year and an event management professional every summer. Those two specialties suit me: having fun and learning! After 20+ years working at national political or sporting events, I treasure the family vibe at Hipico. My job entails two separate functions. The first is maintaining and managing our Hipico Merchandise Booth and Casino. We call it that because people can use ‘Hipi-Chips’ to acquire items such as champagne flutes, tote bags, or saddle pads. We try new things every year and it is fun to see which items are most popular. Pet items are always a big hit, given that horse people are usually also dog-andcat people. Last year our personal speakers were well received, as were the ear buds. Every year we partner with Kastel Denmark on our rider shirts and change the colors so you always need a new one! The other part of my job is arranging the special events.


We have a casual Welcome Party on Wednesdays for exhibitors, with food from local restaurants and a chance for people to get to know each other. Sundays we usually have some kind of cultural offering in front of the V.I.P. tent before the Grand Prix gets under way. Last year the Pojoaque Pueblo Dancers honored us with their hoop dances and we had Santa Fe Opera apprentices sing the national anthem. Everybody loves Tutu Tuesday, a day when there aren’t any classes so people are running around catching up on barn and personal chores, all the while wearing a tutu over whatever else they have on. On Saturday we have the Chorizo dog races—a weekly competition inviting small breeds to race on the Grand Prix field, a dog-centric event that’s hugely fun

and funny for everybody. It’s all part of Hipico’s effort to showcase the special place that is Santa Fe and why we think every rider should have the Summer Series on their calendar.

Rick Atchinson

40 years is certainly useful in my present capacity, plus the fact I have loved horses since I was 8 years old. I’m also the huntsman for the Caza Ladron Hunt. Many Caza Ladron members support the Summer Series by purchasing V.I.P. tables. One of the most difficult and complicated aspects of my work is maintaining the grass fields, before and during competition. Jumping on grass is a great draw for the exhibitors and to keep the grass in good condition throughout five weeks of non-stop use is a major challenge. We spread sand into the grass, which helps to prevent bald spots and slipping. The sand doesn’t harm the growth of the grass with its 6-8” long roots. I had to learn about the new GGT Footing systems in the hunter rings, which is a blend of gypsum, sand,

and fiber. Our goal is for every exhibitor to have the same, positive experience in the rings and to never worry about the footing, no matter the weather. I am constantly thinking about how the facility looks and feels, about the logistics of getting in and out of the stables, how parking and riding areas work, and considering ways to increase overall use by all equestrian disciplines. We welcome western riding events, dressage shows, and clinics, the whole realm of horse activities. We even hosted a lacrosse tournament last year after the polo season ended. We have a world-class team that comes from all over the country, who come out here to help us put on the Summer Series because they love coming to Santa Fe – just incredible.

Samantha Sylvain OPERATIONS MANAGER

I’ve been part of the Hipico team since 2016 and help ensure our VIP hospitality experience is unparalleled in the beautiful backdrop of Santa Fe. I’ve been in the

hospitality industry since I was a kid. I love providing unique and enjoyable guest experiences and fun working environments. I’ve worked on many large-scale events across the country and abroad, including the Olympics and Super Bowl. It’s amazing to see how a team effort can bring events of all sizes together. I live in Austin, Texas, with my husband and puppies. When I’m not physically in Santa Fe, I’m still an active part of making the Summer Series the best it can be.

I love being part of the Hipico team. We’re more like family and have really learned to lean on one other and make the impossible happen. I truly believe we are creating a unique experience in horse showing and am so grateful for all of the support our returning sponsors, competitors, vendors, staff, and leadership contribute every year—it’s truly a testament to everyone’s ongoing commitment and belief in the Summer Series and what it can grow to become.
