IDHSNA Presidents’ Letters OUTGOING President

INCOMING President

W

T

We had a very good turnout for inspections this year. Thank you to all that worked so hard to make this happen! We used a “deposit” method to find potential horses that needed to be inspected. It worked fairly well, but starting in 2018 we are going to an interactive map system for folks to sign up for their horse to be inspected. We expect a really good response from this for the future.

While preparing to write a message for The Blarney, I went back and reviewed messages from past presidents. I noticed a theme of reaching out to members and asking them to volunteer. We are a volunteer organization. In a perfect world, the Board would set the direction of the Society and volunteers would assist in executing many of these plans. I hope we can continue to build our partnership in order to make our Society an organization that makes us all proud.

December 16, 2017 | Connie Arthur

e had a very good 2017! We had to work pretty hard, but we did accomplish quite a few things. My personal high point of the year was being able to attend an HSI meeting in Ireland during the Royal Dublin Horse Show in August of this year. Just being in Dublin and going to the World Cup there while at the show was fantastic!

We as a society are still working on the “ripples” from harmonization with HSI, however, things are getting worked out, and much has been completed, such as the paperwork and instructions for registration and inspection. This will insure we stay in step with HSI where we need to. At the same time, we are allowed to be autonomous in certain regards, and of course remember that we are NOT harmonized with our Sport Horses, only the purebreds. As time goes by, we may be redoing some of our sport horse paperwork to make it easier for folks to register and inspect both pure- and part-bred with less confusion. We are working to make things as user-friendly as possible.

I

am regretfully resigning at the end of December, 2017, due to health and family issues. It has been my pleasure to serve on the board of directors - I have made some very good and life-long friends, and it’s been an interesting ride, to say the least. Again, we are all in this to promote and love our horses. It just don’t get any better than Irish! I do love our Irish horses!

January 15, 2018 | Susan Jensen

he New Year has brought many changes to the IDHSNA Board. Several board members have stepped down including the president, Connie Arthur. I am excited to have the opportunity to fill out the remaining year of her term and wish Connie well.

We have three main priorities for 2018. They are to register horses; to hold inspections; and to increase membership. In order to have a successful year, we would ask that you register your horses early. If you use the inspection map we can better support the number of horses coming forward. We have had many loyal members over the years, however we would like to increase our membership and interest in the breed. We know to do this we need to create value by offering The Blarney, an updated website, breed promotion, and yearend awards. We need to continue to solidify our brand by offering consistent services and support of our members and our breed. My hope is that those who have been members continue to renew their membership and that members who may have lapsed come back. In addition, I hope new members will give us a try. If you have an interest in a committee, please notify your regional chair. Ideas are wonderful, but I ask that you bring forward solutions and suggestions to make your ideas a reality. Please feel free to contact me or any board member. If you have questions about registration or inspection, please contact our Registrar, Lucy Stevenson. All contact information is on our website. Thank you and I look forward to working with you.

Our immense gratitude goes to the enterprising Founders of our Society, whose efforts brought the Irish Draught and the Irish Draught Sport Horse to the public in North America. Through the years, our Breed has flourished on this side of the Pond and our Society has steadily grown strong.

2017 Year-End Award Results Although I’ve been riding for over 12 years, I’ve never had a green horse and she’s been such a superstar of a horse! We’ve primarily focus in Eventing and Dressage but don’t be surprised to see us at a variety of discipline shows. As a pair, we’ve participated in Western Stock shows, Foxhunting, and Show jumping all to make Rosie the most versatile horse possible. Overall, Rose is my “Horse Of A Lifetime” and I’m so excited to see how she’ll progress these next few years; especially at the upcoming USEA show on the East coast! RES EVENTING LEVEL 1 - SILVER WEND by Silver Granite x Wendefirst. Ridden by Kiera Delahanty.

CH EVENTING LEVEL 1 - ROSEVILLE by Pride of Gloster x Prescott’s Irish Lace (above): Owned and ridden by Morgan Fenrick. Photo courtesy Nicole Severino. CH: Eventing Level 1; RES: Dressage Level 1; CH: Versatility. I’m an 18-year-old high school senior from Waxhaw, NC competing my 9-year-old ID mare by The Pride of Gloster x Prescott’s Irish Lace. Rosie is a Carolina bred mare that I brought from a family friend in the Spring of 2016. When we first met, she was essentially a broodmare that had been under saddle for a limited time. Besides free jumping during her inspection at the age of 2, she’d never learned to jump; and now we’ve successfully competed in the American Eventing Championship in Tryon, NC for Beginner Novice Junior Rider! Rosie and I are also the Irish Draught champions at training level for USDF Adequan All-Breed Awards for 2017.

CH EVENTING LEVEL 1 (COP) - FORREST by unknown out of DCF Licorice (above). Owned and ridden by Angela Meyer. This is my boy Forrest (my first Irish horse) and I’m so happy to have him. He is a 6-yr-old gelding that came into my life 2yrs ago, and so our journey together began. This was our first year out and about showing, so I hope we can continue to improve our o partnership and be out there again next season having fun doing lower level events. CH EVENTING LEVEL 2 - NORTHERN QUEST LADY’S MAN by West Cork x Silver Lady (the grey, next column). Owned and ridden by Jorgen Olijslager.

2017 Year-End Award Results NORTHERN QUEST LADY’S MAN

KIKO

Another fun filled year for Northern Quest Lady’s Man aka Mac and his jockey Jorgen Olijslager eventing at Intermediate/CIC 2** level in 2017. Mac a New York State bred IDSH by the Frazier’s, on the dam’s side his grandsire is Ard Grandpa. Turning 10 years old in 2018 and competing against some big names and upset a few along the way. They had a slow start to the 2017 season due to a skiing neck injury Jorgen sustained in December 2016.

Memorable moments: doing a dressage test at the return of the Essex horse trial in a foot of mud but withdrawing from xc for safety reasons! Losing a shoe at Millbrook horse trial minutes before stadium, not so fun! Running xc at AEC’s part of the course with a lost shoe, not so fun! Not sure what the 2017 shoe issue was, some muddy conditions for sure! Being flagged down by one of their AEC dressage judges at a subsequent horse trial being told they had had the winning dressage test! Mac’s personality is more of a puppy dog than the fierce xc machine that he is, he loves his “people” and takes care of his jockey each and every time! Go Irish ponies! Looking forward to what is yet to come in 2018! CH DRIVING LEVEL 2 - KIKO by Welcome Diamond x Moorpark Mystery Date (Kiko is the bay, next column). Owned and Driven by Boo Fitch. Kiko started out 2017 winning Palm Tree CDE at Little Everglades Ranch in Jan. She put a great test as that is her best

phase. Then proceeded on to the marathon with great exuberance. Once in sight of the first hazard she grabbed the bit for a moment telling me “lets go for it!” She was super fast and very responsive. I have never seen her attack a hazard with such a combination of speed and willingness to listen and respond. She was just awesome. She won all but one hazard. Cones was good enough to hold on to our first place despite a few time penalties. With that as our first competition needless to say it was a great year. We didn’t show as many shows but maintained the quality of our work. She had some time off in the fall and resumed her dressage work in Dec. CH IN-HAND LEVEL 1 - A PLACE IN THE SUN aka SONYA by Ballymore’s Celtic Lad x Mirassou Pearl (Sonya is the chestnut top, page 8). Owned and ridden by Rachel Alexander. Sonya’s bright personality and “characters welcome” ways have always been a source of entertainment and smiles. She became a welcome and much needed distraction after my husband’s death in the fall of 2015.

She has been shown at local venues in-hand” since weaning. In addition to high marks for her confirmation judges often comment on her quiet demeanor.

respectfully in and then finished out the big show by showing in the Irish Draught IBC class. To my surprise and excitement we won the class! Rylee has always surprised and exceeded my expectations for her. I can’t wait to see what 2018 brings for us!

Sonya has attended two medieval re-enactments with her dam Mirassou Pearl. We plan to attend more in 2018. She and I hope to leave the in-hand arena and be showing Intro Dressage by the end of 2018. RES IN-HAND LEVEL 1 - GENESSEE BOUNCER by Stargazey’s Romance At Short Notice x Aisling of Grange. Owned by Ann Morss. CH IN-HAND LEVEL 2 and CH HUNTERS LEVEL 1 - AISLING aka RYLEE by Corrcullen x Susie Cruz (pictured top right). Owned and ridden by Candace Martin-Yackel. Rylee as she is known around the barn had a great show season. She started the summer showing locally at the New York State Horse Breeders show and represented her breed well in the Irish-Bred classes taking home several Championships and a Reserve in Hunter and In-Hand classes. She continued on with some showings in some local hunter shows and also a hunter breeding show where she did quite well against some very nice warmbloods. Her and I finished out the show season by showing at Dressage at Devon in the breed show. Rylee helped me achieve my dream of many years showing there. We showed in the Amateur Handler class which she placed

CH DRESSAGE LEVEL 1 - RECKLESS HEART aka UNO by Jack of Hearts x Meri Silver Star (above). Owned by Jona and Kalehua Willams.

IRISH DRAUGHT HORSE SOCIETY OF NORTH AMERICA | 2017 ANNUAL BLARNEY EDITION


2017 Year-End Award Results Uno came to us as a very green and very stubborn 4-year-old, gangly, uncoordinated handful! He is now seven and hopefully done growing at 17.1 hands. Uno is quite a character and loves attention. The hardest part of a dressage test for him is not getting distracted by all the goings on. Thanks to our wonderful trainer, Holly Stremming, and my daughter’s hard work and perseverance Uno is coming along in dressage and has started learning to jump. He still prefers a trail ride over any type of real work! RES DRESSAGE LEVEL 1 - ROSEVILLE by Pride of Gloster x Prescott’s Irish Lace. Owned and ridden by Morgan Fenrick. CH DRESSAGE LEVEL 2 - RICKOSHEA by The King of Hearts x Josa Canella (no photo provided). Owned and ridden by Heather Jans. GOAL...GOLD achieved! It has been a long road and as usual with ups and downs. However, I never in my wildest dreams expected to achieve a gold medal with Rickoshea. Of course, he had talent, but Grand Prix dressage is a whole different ball game. He became the little horse that could and DID. Looking back at those years of eventing and slowly working thru the levels of dressage, it’s hard to believe we made it!!!!!!! Our goal for 2018 is to add polish to our rides. I have heard it said and I totally believe it that is takes full two years at Grand Prix level to get a solid handle on this level. Best wishes to all of you for 2018 show season.

I look forward to participating in 2018 and hope other members join in and show off these wonderful Irish horses. RES JUMPER LEVEL 1 - CASANOVA AZTLAN by Cordento x Sea Probe. Owned by Melisaa & Marina O’Toole. CH FOX HUNTING LEVEL 1 - TIPPERARY ODE TO JOY by Snowford Bellman x Prescott’s Pride & Joy (below). Owned by Terry Adcock.

CH JUMPER LEVEL 1 - PADI’S CELTIC ROSE aka BOOK OF SECRETS by Mountain Pearl x Incredustar (bay jumper, next column). Owned by Mary Jo Welsh. Roisin is a 2002 RIDSH by Mountain Pearl and was bred by Diane Petrie of Fox Hollow Sport Horses in Iowa. Each year, Roisin amazes me with her wonderful attitude and willingness to cart me around the jumpers like a rockstar. 2017 was our best year yet and we ended the season by winning the Low Adult Amateur Jumper USHJA Zone 4 Championship classes at the Atlanta Fall Classic as well as finishing 2nd overall for the year in USEF/USHJA Zone 4. We also ventured out and checked off bucket list shows at HITS Ocala and Kentucky Horse Park. It was so much fun we plan to do it all again in 2018!

2017 Year-End Award Results Tipperary Ode to Joy know as Odie really stepped up to the plate this year in his first year of hunting first flight. Odie hunted 1 to 2 times a week all season. Odie filled in as needed as whips horse, field masters horse and even the huntsman’s horse. Odie is a purebred not a sport horse. A lot of riders are surprised when he is still with the thoroughbreds after a long coyote run. I am looking forward to many more years of hunting Odie. Odie is the horse on the right in the photo. RES FOX HUNTING LEVEL 1 - EPONA’S KAYHILL by Hilltop Cordini x Bridon Dairilea (below). Owned by Terry Adcock

Gurraun Seaberi (Declan) is the perfect gentleman in the hunt field. When I am asked to be field master or whip Declan is always my first choice. Declan loves hunting and I can always tell which way the huntsman went by watching Declan’s ears. You have a great hunt horse when you can always depend on them that’s Delan.

How It All Started: 1993-1995 How It All Started: 1993-1995

BY ANTHEA C. S. MCLAUCHLAN (FOUNDER & PRESIDENT IDHSNA 1993-1998)

APRIL 10th 1992 SCOTLAND

The past “is a foreign country, they do things differently there” (L.P.Hartley).

W

e (my husband Michael and I) emigrated from UK (well, Scotland) to Canada (well, Vancouver Island, off the West Coast in British Columbia) in 1992. We had a small farm and many animals. However, we only brought with us our beloved 14-year-old purebred Irish Draught mare, her two young purebred offspring and our 10-year-old Jack Russell terrier. I had not originally planned on bringing any of my horses, just Roly the Jack Russell. I felt so upset about having to sell the horses, that in the end I eventually decided to “just one” bring my broodmare, Erin (Pride of Erin AID). I employed the British Bloodstock Agency (BBA) to arrange the transport for Erin. It transpired that equestrian transportation units each had space

12

for 3 horses and the cost was not that much more to fill it with all of my horses! So I decided to bring all of my horses! Thus Erin’s two offspring, Merry (Macs Colmerin) x Colman RID and Max (Macs Silverin) x Silver Jasper RID were added to the list. (By the way, the prefix “Macs” is from the initials of my name) My sister Nicky already lived and had horses on Vancouver Island, in North Saanich, which was about 24km from the BC capital Victoria. She had emmigrated in 1980. She arranged for Erin’s quarantine in a field just up the road, (the other two being still young enough not to require quarantine). Luckily Nicky was also there to greet my Irish Draughts off the plane, as our arrival hadn’t quite gone according to plan!

I

was so delighted to greet my horses when we arrived at the end of July, all looking well and completely adjusted to their new country. It took us a while to adjust to a new country, longer than they did!

IRISH DRAUGHT HORSE SOCIETY OF NORTH AMERICA | 2017 ANNUAL BLARNEY EDITION


APRIL 12th 1992 VANCOUVER AIRPORT.

There were also two pure bred stallions, Augustus Grange and Co Down Sam standing in the USA and used for breeding IDSH. I contacted the IDHS in Great Britian who informed me that a purebred colt had arrived in Seattle, WA, in 1992. Remember that I was very new to the continent of North America. I had to look up where Seattle was on the map, and found it was in Washington State just across the US border, relatively local!

1993 By 1993, I began an attempt to show the local equestrian community the characteristics of the Irish Draught breed. I had been describing them as “Irish Warmbloods” in an attempt to describe their qualities, as “Draught” gave the impression of Coldbloods ! Canada Labour Day Weekend (the first weekend in September) saw the local Saanich Agricultural Fair (their 126th Fair in 1993) hold their first ever Canadian Sports Horse Association (CSHA) Parade that year. This created a perfect opportunity to show my IDs. The Irish Draught breed was shown to the equestrian public. The other breeds presented in the CSHA Parade were Trakeheners, Welsh Cobs, and Quarter Horses and each breed provided the announcer with descriptions of the breed’s qualities. In Scotland I had a few friends who had IDs, and I regularly saw them (both the friends and their horses...). By 1993, I really began to miss seeing other IDs around (and their owners of course). I decided to do something about it.

At that point I felt I had enough information to issue the first IDHSNA Newsletter in December 1993. Michael had continued working part time with The Chase Creative Consultants, a firm of graphic designers in the UK, and they produced the necessary artwork needed for the new society. I used the circle that the parent society used that Great Britain had followed, replacing “GB” with “NA”. The year ended with Ann Cummings and Gerry White, the owners of the new purebred colt in WA, coming up to visit. Literally, on New Year’s Eve.

1994 n early 1994 Ann and Gerry brought their colt - Snowford O’Donnell, (by Banks Fee Daniel x Harepark Pink and bred by IDHS(GB) President Pam Symonds) to Vancouver Island. They asked Nicky to start training him and to start his breeding career, and Nicky and I gave him his stable name of “O’D”.

I

By the second Newsletter in April 1994 I had rustled up enough interest in the ID that I established a Membership

I wrote to various equestrian magazines: “The Chronicle of the Horse”, “ Equus”, “Practical Horseman”, “The Corinthian” and “Horse and Sport”, calling for Irish Draught owners and enthusiasts to contact me. The stumbling beginings of the Irish Draught Horse Society of North America - IDHSNA was born. With, at that time, fewer than 1,000 purebred Irish Draught Horses in the WORLD, they were considered “at risk”. I contacted the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy and The Canadian Rare Breeds Association to alert them to our presence.

W

ith the help of the parent IDHS in Ireland, I learnt that Silver Granite, who had been standing with Rick Melde in Arizona, had just returned to Ireland that July. However, Rick still had four purebred mares.

How It All Started (con’t) List! By then I had been contacted by various people: Michele Metraux from Ontario (who had just imported an ID mare); Kitty Olivito from NC (who had just imported two IDSH geldings); and John Shorthill from Maine (who was planning to breed IDs). In the Newsletter I had also written (with what turned out to be quite a prophesy!) that Irish Inspections for the breed were unlikely before “say 1996”. Jennifer Brownlow who had heard about the Society through the grapevine, came down from Duncan (at least an hour’s drive away!), to see the two stallions (O’D and Max) at Nicky’s stable. I wintered my horses in a large field fairly close to where I lived. A physiotherapist called Lorrene had met my horses as the field was next to her home. That September she went to assist at the newly established “Canadian Horse and Animal Physical Therapists Association” information stand at the Spruce Meadows Masters in Alberta. The physiotherapist who had established the Association happened to bemoan the lack of Irish Draughts for breeding in Canada. Lorrene said casually, “Oh, there are three Irish Draughts in a field next to my house”. This Albertan based physiotherapist was Lesley Kerfoot and she came to visit me later that year and became a stalwart member of the Society! By 1994 The Irish American Hunter Association had also been established by Jim McGinty, who had imported two purebred mares and, with the aid of Kevin Culhane in Ireland, had begun to import frozen semen from eight RID stallions in Ireland. Lesley Kerfoot had planned to breed an IDSH from one of these stallions.

MARCH 1995 NICKY WITH O”D On St Patrick’s Day we had a “Stallion Parade” and Breed Display of the Irish Draught Horse at White House Stables, The two stallions O’D and Max were shown in hand and I gave a talk about the breed and the public, who were able to wander around the stables in the courtyard and talk to the other ID horses.

T

his was followed by an AGM where formal appointments for the Society were made. I became President; Kitty Olivito from North Carolina became Chairman and Newsletter Editor; Ann Cummings - Vice Chairman; and John Shorthill PR – officer (in absentia). Ann Cummings came up

A

lso in 1994 Nicky and her husband Norman and I establish an animal feed store through “Pro Form” feeds from Vancouver. It was based at their place and called “White House Stables” animal feed store. Indirectly this brought more attention to the Irish Draught Breed as my horses were often there as well as O’D. Lorrene, the physiotherapist, was also a regular customer.

1995 The establishment of an Irish Draught Horse register took its first faltering steps and by 1995 we had became recognised as a daughter Society by IDHS(Ire). I managed to establish a Registration process, with bloodtyping included, through a bloodtyping service in Ontario. The University of Kentucky in Viginia later offered free bloodtyping for purebred IDs as they were doing research into Rare Breeds.

ST.PATRICKS DAY ORGANISERS from WA, and Kitty had come all the way from North Carolina to be there. With her computer skills, she took over the Newsletter with added photos, and which I named “The Blarney” by the autumn edition.

IRISH DRAUGHT HORSE SOCIETY OF NORTH AMERICA | 2017 ANNUAL BLARNEY EDITION


ST.PATRICKS DAY PARADE NOTICE Kitty and John had been very busy with publicity at large Shows in the eastern USA, and they also went as observers to the 1995 Annual Inspections in Ireland! It was through watching Kitty’s video of their trip that I recognised a number of mares who had an amazing resemblance to Erin, and they were all by Ben Purple. When I bought Erin in Scotland, she had recently been brought over from Ireland but did not have any accompanying papers registering her sire or dam. It was quite common at that time for this to happen in the UK. At IDHS(GB) Inspection she hence could only be graded “Appendix Irish Draught” with “unknown breeding”

I

asked the bloodtyping lab at the University of Kentucky to check Erin’s DNA against Ben Purple, and he was her sire.

T

he Central Region has been actively breeding, competing, and overall enjoying their Irish horses. We’re happy to announce many new arrivals, including nine foals from Longfield Farm. The colts are for sale, and if you’re interested, please check out their pictures in the foal section.

PROUD RUBY ROSE

CAPPA IRISH CHARMER, C2ID

Ingvill Ramburg at Woodloch Farm welcomed three very nice IDSH foals and two are for sale. Doug and Simone Mackay at Manu Forti Farm keep producing lovely foals, and this year is no different, as they welcome five foals, three purebreds and two sport horses. Andrea Stetzer added to her herd, as her IDSH mare, Each Liem Celtic Kiss, produced another quality 5/8 ID foal. Bellwether Irish Draughts also welcomed two colts, a purebred by Celtic Moon, and an IDSH by Heathercombe Calico, both are for sale. Rounding out the 2017 foal crop are two new foals for Tally Ho Equestrian Centre and their stallion, Cappa Irish Charmer, with many more expected next year. Tally Ho is also excited to announce one of Charmer’s foals from his first crop was purchased as a competitive jumper prospect and is currently in training with a Grand Prix rider/trainer. We’ve had a couple new members and horses join our ranks. Elizabeth Frey, Julie Simmons, and Beth Burnell recently purchased their first Irish horses, an ID mare, a ¾ IDSH gelding, and an IDSH mare, respectfully. Elizabeth spent her year getting miles on her young mare, Proud Ruby Rose. Activities include the young horse show series, schooling shows, trail rides, and

even a haunted hunter pace, where they won the costume contest. Elizabeth is looking forward to continuing Ruby’s wellrounded education, and hopefully add some bigger competitions in 2018. Julie managed to take her new handsome gelding, Manu Forti’s Royal Blue, to several shows before her pregnancy forced her to cut her show season short. She was quite pleased with his performance in dressage and eventing at both Queeny Park Horse Trials and the Midwest Connemara Breeder’s show,

Katie and her “Lucky Penny” spent the summer competing in hunter/jumper shows, and earned numerous 1st place and championship awards, and ended their last show on a high by winning her 3’3” class and placing second in her 3’6” division. They also spent some quality time on the cross-country field and have a few eventing competitions in their sites for 2018. And finally, an exciting new horse was added to Celtic Pride Farm in Fulton, MO. They imported a lovely 2016 purebred colt from Bell Tower Stud.

ANAMCHARA TEMAIR

THE BIG EASY (aka LUCKY PENNY)

Our horses have also been out and about, attending clinics, shows, young horse events, and overall enjoyed getting their owners off the farm. Ingvill Ramburg and her daughter Maia, were kept quite busy during the summer and attended multiple clinics including Dom Schramm, Yves Sauvignon, Becky Holder, Lisa Marie Fregusson and Sinead Halpin with multiple horses, including Irish Ridge Seanchi, Hang On Hailey’s Comet, and Silver Petrossian. They also did their fair share of competing, and Maia and Hang On Hailey’s Comet took home 7th in the starter division at the Summer Otter Creek Horse Trials, and later in the summer took home first place at Sundance Horse Trials. Longfield Farm’s ID mare, Silver Petrossian wrapped up the year by placing 5th out of 20+ entries, at her first recognized show at Otter Creek with Ingvill’s guidance, then made her way to a new home with a wonderful family in Kentucky. More clinics and competitions are expected for 2018.

The ID and the IDSH not only excel in competitions with jumps, they have the aptitude to shine in the dressage ring as well. AnnMarie Brockhouse and her talented red corvette, also known as Anamchara Temair, continued their dressage journey and solidified their first level work, and both are currently exploring the new Big Girl territory of second level! The highlight of their summer was developing and riding their first level Musical Freestyle, and the judges liked it too, as they received lovely comments and scores about their choreography and harmony. The pair wrapped up their summer by qualifying for Regionals in both their regular classes and their freestyle. Paula Schneider and her IDSH gelding, PAULA SCHNEIDER AND Wolfgang’s Pride, WOLFGANG’S PRIDE.

Jennifer Herzog’s ID gelding Cork Wood, also known as Liam, was started under saddle in the spring, and debuted in his first dressage schooling show later in August where he picked up a lot of admirers, along with greats scores in Intro A and B. He is now residing in Iowa with his new family, and will be working on his career in dressage, under the guidance of Lisa Marie Bishop. Lionwood Granuaile, RID mare, also known as Grania, resumed her riding career in dressage, and will be making her official show debut in summer of 2018. Although 2017 was overall a spectacular year for the region, there were a few heartbreaking lows too. We lost the grand old mare, Kerryoak Lady Dawn. Doug and Simone Mackay imported her and she produced many outstanding purebred foals at Manu Forti Farm before she moved to her retirement home at Longfield Farm. Longfield Farm also lost Celtic Silver, a wonderful young gelding whose life was cut tragically short.

IRISH HUNTER PACES: he NER hosts several Hunter Paces each year to raise funds for our Awards and participation in Expos such as Equine Affaire. Our appreciation for Cori, Jamie and Jesse Oehley is huge as they hosted the first Pace in 2017 in Massachusetts! They provide a Feast before and after the Rides that is a bounty!

Sarah Batzing holds as many as four Paces at her Farm in New York, weather permitting! The Paces draw many Riders, mostly English style but we welcome the western Riders, also! Setting up a Pace requires hours of prep work and these folks are very generous with their time and energy! EVENTS: ur NER participated in awarding qualified Irish Draught Sport Horses at three Events in 2017. A qualified IDSH for our Awards does not need to be recorded but its Pedigree needs to be available to determine it has at least 1/8th ID in its breeding.

In Personal Memory Kilkelly A Cut Above (RID)

Kellen was my introduction to the Irish Draught Breed. I was happy to be welcomed into a wonderful extended family of the breed through The Irish Draught Horse Society of North America and Facebook. KELLEN WILL BE GREATLY MISSED BY ALL WHO LOVED HIM.

2006 - 2017

Kerryoak Lady Dawn (RID) 1991 - 2017

Born April 13, 2006. Sired by KEC Double Diamond (Class 1 ID), out of Penmerryl’s Vespa (RID). Inspected and Approved by IDHSNA in 2009. Proudly owned and loved by Victoria Rule.

M

y beloved 11 year old RID gelding, Kilkelly A Cut Above (aka Kellen) died peacefully on May 25, 2017, at 12:25 pm surrounded by myself and daughters Ava & Lila who adored him. Kellen bravely battled EPM for 5 months. He was stoic to the end. Sad that a microscopic organism took down such a magnificent, intelligent, bold, and beautiful Irish Draught. Kellen was a member of our family for eight years. He was my joy and favorite photo subject. He had spirit, strength, a huge personality, and the kindness of a gentle giant. Kellen had a late start due to a knee injury, and belly surgery between the ages of five and six. At age seven Kellen was professionally trained in dressage and competed in 2014-2015. He was also a willing student of Natural Horsemanship. Kellen was a great family horse too... my youngest daughter Lila had just started her training over fences with him when he was diagnosed.

Born June 3, 1991. Sired by Gort Boy, out of Arandell’s Perfect Heather.

I

first met Dawn when we were shopping for some foundation brood mares in England. It was a snowy cold January day and I had driven up from the Isle Of Wight UK to Nottingham to see her. When we arrived we walked through a couple of fields and there was Dawn Heavily in foal to the RID stallion Riverbank. As soon as I saw her I knew we had to buy her, she was such a wonderful old style mare the type that are hard to find. She had great bone and substance and just seemed very easy going. Dawn’s pedigree had also impressed me she was by Gortboy out of Arundel’s Purple Heather by Ben Purple. Over the years she had been awarded several Hornby Premium’s making her a select Hornby premium, she also was a ride and drive and had done pretty well in the show ring.

IRISH DRAUGHT HORSE SOCIETY OF NORTH AMERICA | 2017 ANNUAL BLARNEY EDITION


In Personal Memory (con’t) Before leaving the UK Dawn had foaled many foals, I believe possibly ten and one was a full sister to the foal she was carrying at the time and was sold to Ireland. The day arrived for Dawn to be collected and shipped to the USA we had to get a move on as she was heavily in foal and getting rather close to her due date. I always remember the shipper contacting me saying that they had to make an extra wide box for her on the plane as she was so big.

Huntingfield Proud Tim (Class 1 ID) 1993 - 2017

That year Dawn safely foaled a lovely filly we named Rivi Era Girl who we have today as a brood mare. Then the following year we purchased our dear stallion Touch Of The Blues who we then bred to Dawn Several times. One of her Touch Of The Blues colt was sold as a stallion prospect and is now a fully approved RID stallion named Manu Forti’s Touch Down. Dawn went onto produce a few more really nice fillies all full sisters. One of the high lights of having Dawn as part of our family was I got an opportunity to take her to the ID annual show in Kentucky about 5 years ago. The funny thing was she loved Kentucky and the whole time we were there I was wondering if she thought she was in England again as she really just seemed to be so happy and came alive. I don’t think Dawn had ever done a dressage test in her life but i thought seems we were there we might as well do some extra classes. We went in the ring and she didn’t put a foot wrong. I was so proud of her and to top it all I had literally taken her out of the field, we didn’t even practice or run through our test when we got there, just went straight in the ring. Next we did the purebred brood mare class where she took 3rd place and the judge said if she was a bit younger then she would of been placed higher but she was 18 years old and starting to show her age. After a lot of thought the following year we decided to find a good retirement home that we trusted some where Dawn could spend her remaining years so she moved to Jennifer Herzog’s farm in Minnesota. For a short time she was a therapy horse and then she was retired out to pasture. Sadly Dawn had to be put to sleep last year at the age of 22 years old. I want to thank Jennifer for giving her such a wonderful caring retirement home for her last 3 years and knowing when the time was right to say good bye. She will never be forgotten and her legacy will live on in her children and grandchildren. RIP KERRYOAK LADY DAWN.

Born April 13, 1993 and passed December 8, 2017. Sired by Timahoe Heather, out of Proud Mary.

O

n Friday, December 8, Tim was laid to rest. It is hard to write about what he meant to our family. He arrived in the spring of 2001 after a long trip from England. A semi pulled up in the night (as they always seem to do), and the trucker led Tim down the ramp and handed the lead rope to my husband, Chris. Chris found himself on the other end of the line of an eight

In Personal Memory (con’t) year old, 17.1 hand stallion. Tim was up on tiptoes, excited to be out of the trailer and interested in his new surroundings. But we found out then, in that moment, just what sort of guy he was. A true gentleman. He let himself be led to the barn without any fuss. We did live cover, both in hand and pasture breeding for the first two seasons, but at nine years old Tim had never been backed. In the fall of that year, we sent him to a local trainer, Shane Miller. Tim progressed quickly, and after 90 days with Shane, Tim went to his first jumping clinic. He acted like he did this sort of thing all the time. We decided to send him to California to have him collected by Select Breeders Services for freezing. Tim had never been collected, as he had done live cover with us and live cover in England. The folks at SBS laughed about their recalcitrant student. Tim never would come to think that an AV was a good replacement for a mare. But he was as always a good student and reluctantly did what he was asked. He went straight from SBS to Hilary and Charlie Carrel at Colts Unlimited in Wyoming. Hilary and Charlie had agreed to take him, though I think they had concerns about a stallion who had begun his under saddle career so late in life. Tim quickly won them over. He competed in stadium jumping in Colorado that summer, and even did a lead line class with a 4-year-old rider. He would stand ringside with the other horses while waiting to go. He might nibble on your shoelaces if he was bored. But he understood that he was working, and there wasn’t going to be any breeding of mares, so he might as well stand quietly. Hilary liked to say about Tim that she was never worried he would refuse a fence. If he didn’t like the look of a jump, it was go big or go home.

A

fter that summer, Dustin Craig went to work at Colts Unlimited with the Carrels. Dusty was an eventer, and it was decided to let Tim turn his hoof to eventing. While Tim never loved the dressage portion of horse trials, he loved cross country and was a natural. He started at Training Level, as drops into water and the other questions on course were simply not a concern for him. Dusty and Tim traveled to events around Montana, Wyoming, and Colorado. Tim often traveled in the company of a mare, but he always minded his manners. Tim evented for two years, finishing at the regional finals in Colorado where he placed 7th out of 21 horses. We then decided it was time for Tim to come home. Tim lived out in a pasture where he got to keep tabs on everyone on the farm. I would take him

to be collected, and also sometimes took him to a local barn to ride. If we went to the barn, he would get quietly off the trailer and stand tied in the parking lot, while I tacked him up. If we went to the collection station, he would call and puff up and let everyone know he had arrived. But even in a breeding situation, he never forgot his manners. Our children brushed and bathed Tim. They braided his hair and loved on him. We had admonished them before Tim arrived that they were never to go into his pasture, etc, etc…, but all of that went out the window after we came to know him. Today we still see Tim in his many progeny. His progeny have made their mark in England, Ireland, and North America. Walnut Hill RID won “Mare of the Future” at the IDHS National Show in Ireland and Reserve Champion Mare at the RDS. He is the damsire of an approved stallion in England, Aye Aye Skipper, and had two approved stallion sons in North America, as well as approved mares and geldings. His progeny have embodied Tim’s love of cross country, as well as his kindness and sensibility. Tim was an old soul. He was kind and dignified. I am grateful to all of those who had a part in his life. HE WILL BE TERRIBLY MISSED.

H

ere at Lone Tree Farm it was truly the end of an era. I sold all my broodmares and made the difficult decision to stop breeding for myself. I have one purebred still coming for 2018, due to Kleary Field’s generosity, but after that it is done for me and breeding. Bridon Beale Street will continue to be available via fresh cooled and frozen semen however, and “Liam” enjoys his semi-retirement by giving lessons, going on trail rides and being the darling of the barn.

The Short Long Road The Short Long Road to Devon - BY CYNTHIA RUBEL

I

had always dreamed of having a horse compete at Devon but didn’t come from a place of financial security to enable my dream to become reality; so that dream was put on hold.

Many years later after my 15h schoolmaster had passed away, I vowed to have another appaloosa and get back in the show ring as a serious competitor. However, I was no longer 16 myself, I am a mother and my body has changed dramatically after child rearing.

After long consideration and discussion with my breeder Ashley and Kelly Smart of Rugby Creek Sport Horses, she purchased an amazing Irish Draught mare to add to their broodmare roster, that was my soon to be my foal’s baby momma. Fast forward few years I had an exquisite Irish x Appaloosa sport horse filly on the ground, now presenting at dressage at Devon 2015. She did not (at that time) have a specific breed registry that she belong to; as the club I originally bred her for, had dissolved, and we were in limbo. I saw an opening for her to compete fairly amongst similar breeding and grateful to be accepted into IDHSNA’s club, the concept of bringing back the Irish Draught/Sport Horse IBC was born....again. I am of modest means, so I approached my client and dear friend, Deborah Curtin of Lilith Farm and asked her if she would consider co-sponsoring and she agreed. She embraced this journey whole heartedly.

ble few that have made it to the FEI level such as recently deceased KEC Double Diamond, Lionwood Kinsale’s Lad, and our reining king of Grand Prix Dressage, Steeped in Luck of Paraidox Farm. I reached out to the northeast region chair and sought the guidance and input of Ann Morss of IDHSNA. Quickly this idea to came to life! Over a period of time, reality hit that some of the entries may be new to dressage so I started an online group chat through Facebook. I wanted everyone to know what was expected, and to feel prepared. Little did I know how mentally unprepared I was on how big my vision would become. I realized that I had other people’s hopes and dreams of competing in the Dixon Oval on my shoulders. I couldn’t fail, it’s a huge responsibility. I took hold of those reins and (pun intended) and made it happen. It was bigger than I ever even imaged!

Upon studying the Irish breed which is totally new to me, I found out that the breed is on the watch list. What better way to present publicly how universal this breed is, especially with the limited nota-

46

Unfortunately Deborah was unable to attend and to see the success of the division this year due to a prior family obligation, that is my only personal regret, because without her I could not have done it without her financial assistance and personal belief in me and my vision. We have been chatting about a repeat performance for 2018, and I have begun to scout out additional sponsors for 2018 to try to get bigger awards for first through third. I pray that I am successful securing the additional sponsors.

The Short Long Road (con’t)

F

ast forward again to the day before competition. We all hauled in and helped each other unload and got to know each other. That evening, after all the braiding, prep work and lending a hand to one another, we sat in the grandstand enjoyed a lovely Italian dinner, enjoying each other’s company and we watched some of the young under saddle classes and other breed divisions, before we said goodnight.

We had lucky seven for 2017, I am hoping for a terrific ten plus entries for 2018. This most certainly was and has been a labor of love, I didn’t realize how it would consume me but it went off within a hitch, and has made me fall even more in love with my Irish sport lass and our Irish club community!!

O

n a personal note, I need to thank: my breeder and good friend Ashley and Kelly Smart of Rugby Creek Sport Horses for introducing me to the Irish breed and for helping me breathe through it all...love you guys; my new friend (and handler for 4 out of the 7 entries), Brian Ohnmeiss for handling my horse Brigantine beautifully! We had MANY obstacles, but overcame them all, and thank you for seeing the beauty and potential in her. I look forward to many more horse shows with her and your guidance and future handling for our Irish group at Devon 2018+.

Thank you everyone! To the future!

The day of, we fed, prepped warmed up, wished us all well, I sat ringside and watch the first entry go into the class I organized. It was an unbelievable moment of pride, joy and stress! I became a nervous horse show mom for everyone. There were some distractions, but everyone performed beautifully! What an amazing representation of the breed! We had an outstanding group of seven competitors: Brigantine (2-yr-old IDSH owned by yours truly); Genesee Bouncer (1-yr-old ID owned by Ann Morss); DCF Hang on Salute (12-yr-old IDSH owned by Bergj Matthews); Sookie (9-yr-old IDSH owned by Jennifer Bateman); Bealagh Aurum’s Blues, aka Clementine (12-yr-old RID owned by Judy Honey); second place winner Cassanova Aztlan (13-yr-old IDSH competed by 14-yr-old owner); and our winner, Aisling IDSH (12-yr-old, owned by Candace Martin-Yackel). After we put our horses away, we went into the picnic area and Ann gave out additional awards for ID and IDSH, and participation awards (plus we enjoyed some wine)! I have to applaud EVERYONE FOR AN OUTSTANDING turn out, support and encouragement.

Member News RECKLESS HEART: Jona and Kalehua Williams. Horses in the 50th State!

W

e became the proud owners of an Irish Draught horse purely by accident. I had never heard of the breed. Our story began when my daughter, Kalehua, decided she wanted to start riding at the age of 12. Lessons are hard to come by if you do not own your own horse as there are few lesson horses. Owning a horse is always expensive but even more so here in Hawaii. Not only do you have your board fees which may or may not include mucking and feeding, hay is $42 a bale and shavings are $15 a bag. We do not have any tack stores, so everything is online and shipping to Hawaii is often more than the cost of the item. We go through gallons of fly spray as they never die! It adds up quickly. We were very lucky to find a great instructor but access to a lesson horse was sporadic. Most horses for sale here have seen multiple owners and are more expensive than their counterparts on the mainland due to the scarcity of horses in general. I stumbled on an ad stating that a plane load of horses was coming to Hawaii from Bly, Oregon and had room for a couple more. I called to see if any went English and was told they had one big red horse … Uno. I went to Oregon and fell in love. He was a shaggy, beat up mess after spending the winter with a herd in Bly. He was green and only 4 but the price was right and shipping was included! I had no idea what I had gotten us into. He needed an over-sized box borrowed from FedEx!

RECKLESS HEART (aka UNO)

48

Uno had been started English but was barely green broke and his

ground manners were horrendous. He had been sold due to a food aggression that we knew nothing about. We learned quickly! My daughter couldn’t even ride him for the first year. He was never mean or malicious, just very green and clueless not to mention gangly and uncoordinated. Every other month he would be butt high and could barely canter around an arena.

W

e were told who Uno’s sire was but I had no idea what to do with that information. While at a show one day a lady came up and asked me about him. I told her all I knew was that his sire was supposed to be Jack of Hearts…. She knew all about the Irish Draughts and even got me in touch with someone at IDHSNA. After confirmation of a DNA test we were able to register him as Reckless Heart. Thankfully Uno seems to have stopped growing at 17.1” give or take and started filling out. He is now much more coordinated and has 3 good gaits. Most of all he has a great personality. He can be very stubborn but he is also very mischievous, playful, adventurous and silly. Life is a big game to him. He will charge over a spooky looking jump but flinch at a tiny butterfly. Rounding him up and getting him on the bit is a struggle but you can put a beginner on him and he will take them carefully around the arena. He has started jumping and seems to really enjoy it but his preference is a good trail ride any day. Oahu only has 8 recognized dressage shows per year on 4 different weekends with the judges alternating with a local judge. Our season runs from April to September. We have 2 types of shows: hot and rainy or hot and humid! Summer rules are almost always called but everyone still wears coats! Due to the lack of horses many are shown by different people on alternating days. With only 8 shows it is a challenge to meet all the qualifications. We had not realized that Kalehua did not have 4 different judges this past season so she did not qualify for nationals. She did end up qualifying for local year-end awards on both Uno and another horse. We are a close-knit community with wonderful volunteers, parents and trainers.

H

orse ownership in Hawaii is a challenge but worth it. My daughter has really grown in so many ways due to her involvement with Uno and other horses. She has been fortunate to ride with some amazing people including Arthur Kottas, George Williams, Thomas Poulin, Jeromy Steinburg and Ally Brock, our local Olympic bronze medalist! She volunteers at a Therapeutic riding program and is involved with the USDF rider

focusing on training. The rider has to focus on the pattern, rhythm, distances, bends, harmony with the other horses. Before you know it your horse is more adjustable, responsive and in partnership with you. It is interesting to observe how the horses become a team. They work together and draw comfort from each other in new settings.

USDF QUADRILLE TEAM: Judy Honey, NER In 2017 Bealagh Aurum’s Blues, aka Clementine, participated in USDF Quadrille Team Baywatch competition.

Clementine was the leader of our Team Baywatch. She set a very energetic forward pace. She focused on the job and was not concerned about things going on outside of the ring. When I watch the videos of the teams at the Dressage show I can see that her leadership, forward energy and Irish charisma lead our team to be more exciting and fun to watch !

The USDF has specific quadrille test and rules the same as they do for individual dressage tests. Quadrille riding has it’s roots in classical horsemanship. All of the great riding schools of Europe included quadrille riding in their training and performances. In the USA Tempel Farms continues the tradition with their Lipizzan quadrille riding. When a horse works on a quadrille team so many skills are cultivated without the rider

What is in a Name? RID

IDSH

Registered Irish Draught - The classification RID has been retired. It refers to purebred horses that were inspected and approved before harmonization with Ireland and/or before Ireland adopted its new classification system of Class 1, Class 2, etc….

This is the uninspected classification for Irish Draught Sport Horses in North America. An IDSH must have at least 1/8 Irish Draught blood from an approved source. IDSH has two sub-groups: IDSH TBx and IDSH Non-TBx. In order to be placed in the TBx group, proof of registered Thoroughbred parentage or background must be documented.

CLASS 1 ID Class 1 Irish Draughts - Horses that have been inspected and approved and have met all of the veterinary and inspection requirements and were classified as Class 1. Stallions that were approved prior to 2001 were given Class 1 status, as well.

CLASS 2 ID Class 2 Irish Draught - Horses that have been inspected and approved, and have met all of the veterinary and inspection requirements and were classified as Class 2.

CLASS 3 ID Class 3 Irish Draught - Horses that have not met the veterinary requirements.

UNINSPECTED All purebreds are eligible for entry into the Irish Draught Horse Studbook. Purebreds are in the “Uninspected” class until inspection when they can move into Class 1, Class 2, or Class 3.

RIDSH Irish Draught Sport Horses receive the classification RIDSH after they have been inspected and approved. An RIDSH must have at least ¼ Irish Draught blood from an approved source.

COP COP stands for Certificate of Pedigree. All COP horses are sport horses. Horses receiving this classification were not eligible for standard registration at the time of their registration. These horses can be by or out of unapproved stock. If the Irish Draught Horse or sport horse in their pedigree receives approval, the horse will become eligible for regular registration. Irish Draught heritage must be documented via DNA testing. There is no inspection or approval process for horses with a Certificate of Pedigree.

ISH ISH is a designation used by Horse Sport Ireland for all sport horses born in Ireland. These horses do not need to have any Irish Draught and they do not need to have a documented pedigree.

LOOKING FOR A SHIPPER TO HAUL YOUR HORSE?

HERE ARE SOME THINGS TO ASK THEM TO HELP YOU MAKE A WELL-ADVISED DECISION. 1. What is your US DOT number? If they are 10,001 lbs or more (which is basically any pick-up with a full sized horse trailer) and operating in commerce across State lines, they need to be registered and have authority to operate with the US DOT. Another easy way to check is to look at their truck if they have pictures. It should be clearly marked with the US DOT number on the side. If it’s not, odds are they do not have one.

5. Do you have team or single drivers? They are likely required to follow Federal Hours of Service rules that regulate how many hours they can drive before taking a break. For single drivers, this means your horse will be staying parked either in the trailer or a layover facility.

2. • After you get their DOT number, plug it in here and check their safety record https://ai.fmcsa.dot.gov/SMS/

7. What is your driver(s) horse experience?

3. How much insurance do you have? They need a minimum of $750,000 4. Do your drivers have CDLs? If they operate at 26,001 lbs or more, they need Commercial Drivers Licenses.

50

6. What size is your trailer? Most standard sized slant load trailers will not comfortably fit a large warmblood or draught. 8. How frequently do your drivers stop to check on the horses? Provide hay and water? 9. What is the procedure if there is a veterinary emergency? 10. Do you clean/sanitize the trailer after each trip? If so, how?

Ireland: Horse Country Ireland - The Country of The Horse - BY TERRY ADCOCK

I

have been to Ireland six times over the last 15 years and each time I enjoyed myself more. My last trip was this past September along with seven friends. In the past we have done mostly foxhunting vacations, but we decided this time to try a little bit of everything.

day four: We went on a private hunt in the ditch country with West Wicklow Foxhounds. A gorgeous day and we put a fox to ground. We started the day with hot port and finished with hot port, and a wonderful hunt breakfast.

The first five days of our trip we stayed in a B&B in a small town called Hollywood near Dublin. It had its own bar that the locals frequented. Ray Fischer, our wonderful (and funny) guide, joined us there.

day five:

day one:

day six: We played in the cross-country field at Dartfield with Willy, jumping around to our hearts content. The Irish Horse Museum is at Dartfield, and we had a delightful tour.

We rode on trails and jumped a few stone walls in the Wicklow mountains. Some of the most beautiful scenery you have ever seen. Of the 10 or so Irish horses I have owned, I purchased all but one in the US, but I had told Ray I was looking for another horse to import, so we took an hour or so at the end of the day to look at horses. The first horse visit took us across a large creek in our non-4-wheel-drive car to a field with over 100 Irish Draught horses. I looked in amazement but, didn’t find my horse.

day two: We went on a drag hunt for charity with the local riders. It was beautiful with a lot of cross country jumping. Like every event you do in Ireland, it finished up with wonderful home cooking and drinks. day three: We met with a local Polo Player and all 8 of us rode a polo pony. We spent a couple of hours learning to swing the mallet and trying to hit the ball. We finished up playing a match. Lots of laughs and missed balls. Then we looked at horses again.

I

went to look at a six-year-old bay Irish hunter which was nice, but the owner said I have a three-year-old I just started, let me show him to you. Well the minute I saw Sam I melted. He was too large and too young, but I couldn’t resist. I knew I had others to look at in Galway, so I waited.

We took off from riding and shopped all over Ireland in all the out of way tack shops that Ray knew about and finished at the Dubarry outlet. We were dropped off in Loughrae at a hotel to start out our last two days with the famous Willy Leahy.

I looked at a couple of Irish Sport horses, but I had Sam on my mind. I called that night and said, “Sam is coming to America. Sam is an ID by Huntingfield Heathcliff out of Woodville Milley”. day seven:

We saw the country and played, jumping stone walls in the morning. In the afternoon we went to the Banislo gypsy fair. It was an eye opener. There were hundreds of horses. From top notch Irish horses to gypsy horses with price tags on their haunches.

T

he food in Ireland off the tourist path is wonderful with pubs serving hearty breakfasts, delicious soups and brown bread for lunch, and dinners worthy of four-star restaurants.

We designed our tour for lots of jumping because this was what this group wanted but, both Willy and Ray lead groups without jumping where you can just view the gorgeous scenery of Ireland. In the summer Willy leads week long tours in Connemara where you ride from one side of the Island to the other and stay in B&B’s, ride in the ocean, over the mountains, and enjoy a life of the past.

There is something equestrian for every type of rider in Ireland!
