If you can help in anyway, please contact Niki Sackman, or me, Dee Liebenthal, Let’s put meaning back in the word “community” and come together as a supportive dressage community and help make this the best darn event there is. I know we can do it. We have the members; we just need a little of your support. We are really in need of a person to help with Sponsorships and Advertisers, someone who will keep track of the data and do follow-up. After consulting with experts, we think that our members will contact their friends and families and ask them to support us with their advertising and sponsorships. If we are correct, then we just need someone who is organized and has good computer skills to keep everything organized. Soon, those who were lucky enough to escape the winter weather will be coming home from Florida, South Carolina, and other warmer states. Maybe you lucky NODA members with the tans would like to tell us about the highlights of your time away, and/or share your pictures and stories of a good lesson or clinic you participated in with a particular trainer. Those of us who had to tough it out this particularly harsh winter could use the good news of your southern experiences. We are always on the lookout for good cover photos for the NODA News, so keep that in mind when sharing. We need an 8.5 x 11 format in a photo type file. Ok, let’s all come together and work to make all of NODA’s shows shine this year and into the future. I am certain we can do it. Thank you, and Happy Spring!

And, Valley Riding enjoys the friendship, commitment, and generosity from the Northern Ohio Dressage community in return. I hope we can count on each of you to continue to support our efforts. It promises to be fun. We will start with cocktails, bluegrass music, watch the race on Around the Corner's many big screen TV's, live auction prizes for each horse in the race, Chinese auction, raffle prizes, and a hat parade and contest.

Preventing Soundness Issues in the Dressage Horse By April Woodward


n last month’s article, “Identifying Common Soundness Issues in the Dressage Horse” I talked about soundness issues frequently affecting dressage horses and symptoms, diagnoses and possible courses of treatment for those issues. Of course, prevention is always preferable to treatment, so this month I wanted to talk about some possible ways to prevent injury to your horse.

Turnout and R&R

What type of turnout routine, if any, does your horse have? I frequently hear that many show barns, particularly those with high value horses, opt for very limited to no turnout. Many show horses are also traveling week after week and showing multiple times per month. This can take both a mental and physical toll on your horse. Turnout is the horse’s natural way of keeping Fitness, fitness, fitness himself fit. When turned out, most horses spend some of their time running and playing with friends, or at the very One of the best ways to prevent injury to your horse is least, walking almost constantly while eating grass. This probably one of the most obvious. Make sure he’s fit to gives their joints a chance to keep working, instead of do the job you’re asking him to do. Use common sense standing stagnant in a stall. This can often make a big when training a horse, whether it’s a younger green horse, difference in horses who suffer from arthritis and stiffness or an old schoolmaster stepping back into the show ring. in the joints. Mentally, it’s the horse’s way of blowing off Take it back to a basic level – your horse is an athlete, just steam and reducing stress, thus reducing fatigue. Every like you are, and his workouts require the same elements horse is different, and admittedly, some horses don’t enjoy as your own balanced fitness routine would. Adequate turnout time. However, if you’re able to find a good, warm up and cool down time is essential, his muscles, stable turnout routine that works for your horse, he will tendons, ligament and joints all need time to warm up almost surely benefit from it. Even if you’re not big on before he’s really asked to exert himself, and he needs to turnout, make sure you’re giving your horse enough R&R cool down gradually in order to prevent soreness and time in between shows. Constant travel and the stress of muscle damage. Ten to fifteen minutes of both warm-up new environments can also take a toll on your horse over and cool down time should be part of your daily riding time, and it’s important to recognize the benefit of resting routine. Put some thought into your riding routine, know comfortably at home. your horse’s limitations, and stay within them. If the horse has been out of work, or is stepping up to a new level, Proper Care and Nutrition increase your workouts gradually in both length and intensity. Generally, a lower level show horse will require If you’re sensing a theme here, it’s that soundness and at least 4 days per week of consistent work in order to stay injury prevention are best achieved by looking at the fit. “whole horse.” This means that not only should your horse be fit for his purpose, but you also need to make Incorporate some gymnastic exercises to help your horse sure his care and nutrition are matched to his purpose as use different muscle groups and learn to carry himself well. A horse showing at the grand prix level is going to correctly. Keeping your horse balanced, supple, off the have much different needs that my training level dressage forehand, and using himself as correctly as possible will horse. A horse who lacks proper nutrition may not have help to prevent undue stress on his joints. As far as fitness the adequate muscle strength or energy to perform at his is concerned, one of the easiest things to do to when best, while a horse who is overweight may put undue you’re in a crunch for time, or when the horse is fresh, is stress on his joints. Both of these issues create a higher lunging. However, studies have shown that lunging can chance of injury. Some factors to consider when thinking have adverse effects on horses. This is mostly because of about the nutritional needs of your horse include his the fact that most lunging is done with the horse on a breed, his level of competition, his training routine, and his relatively small circle. Excessive work on a small circle can environment.

NODA News 2015 page 11

In addition to proper feed, and equally as important is proper farrier care. It’s important to realize that when it comes to shoeing – not all horses are created equal, and what works for one, may not work for another. The general recommendation is that horses should be re-shod every 6-8 weeks. However, for many horses that cycle can be too long, or occasionally too short, depending on the conformation of the horse and his individual needs. Work with your farrier to find a routine that works best for your horse, monitor his progress throughout his shoeing cycle, and make adjustments where needed. Always make sure that your horse’s hoof is balanced from left to right, with the inside and outside hoof walls as close to equal length as possible. You should also ideally be able to see an unbroken line from the pastern to the hoof without a forward or backward break to it. Appropriate heel support is also necessary, and the shoe should always be large enough to fully support the horse’s hoof walls. Know Your Horse Lastly, and simply, know your horse. Be familiar with his routine and his care – and pay attention to how it’s working for him. What is his body condition? How much

NODA News 2015 page 12

is he sweating after a ride, and how hard is he breathing? Does the workload seem too heavy for him, or is it easy? Learn what is “normal” for him and observe changes. Is he suddenly cranky about picking up the canter, when he didn’t used to be? Is he refusing or failing to perform movements that he can normally do easily? Often a change in your horse’s behavior is the first sign that and injury could be brewing somewhere, and catching it as early as possible and preventing damage can be very important. Conclusion The bottom line is that injury prevention has to do with more than just your horse’s joints and tendons. It’s about realizing that your horse is an athlete, and treating him like you would any other athlete, making sure that you look at the big picture, including fitness, nutrition, stable management/routine and other factors. Thanks for reading – and I wish you all a very happy, healthy and successful show season with your horse!
