REASONS TO ADD BRAVE HORSE OHIO TO YOUR SUMMER SHOW SCHEDULE Wishing for a horse show with rated competition, beautiful grounds, and a small, boutique feel? Enter Brave Horse Ohio: a premier destination for competitive equestrians, located just outside of one of the Midwest's most vibrant cities. We know just how great it is here, but if you are in need of convincing, we did you the favor of listing just a few of the reasons you should show at Brave Horse this summer! Footing: Riding surfaces are perhaps the most important aspect of competitive equestrian sport, which is why Brave Horse's five arenas are outfitted with Footing First's SRS footing. Rain or shine, our footing is ready to go. Stabling: With four permanent barns and 250 10'x12' stalls, Brave Horse Ohio's accommodations for our pony pals is second to none. You'll sleep well knowing your horse is comfortable and protected from the elements no matter the weather. Our barns boast wide aisle ways with plenty of room for tack trunks and other gear, because we know that equestrians just can't help but over pack! Ribbons and Prizes: Like all sports, horse showing is about so much more than winning or losing. At Brave Horse, we know how hard our competitors work to improve in the saddle, which is why we celebrate every color of ribbon and every great round. Winning a blue is the icing on the cake, which is why we include an additional prize for every blue ribbon won, like fly spray, salt blocks, and boot polish. Tricolor winners take home saddle pads, rain sheets, and so much more – you deserve to be rewarded for your great rides! Family-Friendly Atmosphere: Let's face it: some horse shows can be downright intimidating. At Brave Horse, our goal is to make every competitor, spectator, or vendor feel welcome, whether it's your first visit or your fifth.

Location, Location, Location: Horse show days can be long, and we know just how hungry and tired you can be when dinnertime rolls around. With lodging a mere tenminute drive from the Brave Horse grounds, New Albany restaurants a 15 minute drive, and Easton Town Center a 20 minute drive, our exhibitors have ample dining and shopping options.

R.J. CLASSICS CONTINUES PARTNERSHIP WITH IEA The Interscholastic Equestrian Association (IEA) is proud to announce the continuation of its partnership with R.J. Classics. R.J. Classics, a long-time sponsor of the IEA, is now an official show clothes supplier for IEA riders and valuable sponsor at the IEA Zone Finals and IEA Hunt Seat National Finals. “R.J. Classics is thrilled to renew our partnership with the IEA with the joint goal of helping to grow the future of Equestrian sports. We are so impressed with the tremendous dedication of these outstanding IEA coaches and riders,” shared Michelle Seltzer, Co-Owner of R.J. Classics. “For 20 years, R.J. Classics has been committed to providing quality show clothing for all levels, at all price points, and we were thrilled to support the organization in an even bigger way this season by sponsoring Zone Finals and Nationals.” In addition to their previous sponsorship at the IEA Hunt Seat National Finals, R.J. Classics added sponsorship at each of the ten IEA Zone Finals in 2019. “It is very exciting to further our partnership with a generous, three-year agreement that supports IEA events at the zone and National levels,” stated Roxane Durant, Cofounder/Executive Director of the IEA. “They are always on the cutting edge of new colors, materials and designs and now our riders and coaches have even more access to beautiful, high-quality R.J. Classics equestrian apparel.”

About IEA: Now approaching its 18th year, the IEA has nearly 14,000 members across the United States riding and coaching Hunt Seat, Western and Dressage disciplines. The nonprofit (501(c)3) IEA was organized to promote and improve the quality of equestrian competition and instruction available to middle and secondary school students and is open to public and private schools and barn teams. There is no need for a rider to own a horse because the IEA supplies a mount and tack to each equestrian for competitions. Its purpose is to set minimum standards for competition, provide information concerning the creation and development of school associated equestrian sport programs, to generally promote the common interests of safe riding instruction and competition as well as education on matters related to equestrian competition at the middle and secondary school levels. For more info, please visit www.rideiea.org. About R.J. Classics: R.J. Classics made its debut in 2000. The founder's daughter was an avid junior rider and like any show mom shopping for apparel, she was looking for options that fit her daughter's needs as well as her budget. Her family business and professional background had long been in the apparel industry and she blended that knowledge seamlessly with her knowledge of the riding market. The company's mission was quite simple and is still in place: offer a variety of price points to the consumer, offer fashionable styling, and always produce quality garments. The level of attention to detail, value and quality to all products across all price points is what sets us apart from others. R.J. Classics commitment to their clients has resulted in growth for the company and an expanded product line. Explore their extensive coat, shirt, breech and accessory selections. Enjoy the beautiful styling, luxurious fabrics and unique linings. For more info visit www.rjclassics.com

Natural Defenders By Eleanor Blazer | www.horsecoursesonline.com They are the Special Forces within your horse's body. They neutralize insurgents before damage can be done. They are the Antioxidants; defenders of the healthy horse! Moving throughout your horse are damaged molecules called free radicals. These molecules were corrupted by drugs, chemicals, preservatives and other impurities introduced to your horse via oxygen (air). The free radicals are electrically imbalanced and attack healthy body tissues. They steal fat, protein, DNA and electrical charges from the healthy cells. This creates a chain reaction; spreading havoc throughout your horse's body. Continuous damage to healthy body tissues results in increased risk of infection, inflammation and fatigue. As a horse ages, these problems become more apparent as the free radicals increase in numbers. Performance horses, horses fighting chronic illness, and horses under stress are also prime targets of free radicals. Enter our heroes – The Antioxidants. Antioxidants help prevent the spreading of free radicals. They stop the chain reaction. Antioxidants “sweep up” the insurgents. Members of the Antioxidant Special Forces are vitamins A, C, E; the minerals selenium and zinc; and lipoic acid. Antioxidants are provided to the horse through diet and a few are manufactured (synthesized) by the horse. Offering a balanced diet to your horse will generally provide the needed antioxidants. This diet should include plenty of fresh highquality forage and a commercial product designed to complement that forage. If the forage and grain being offered are of poor quality, a vitamin/mineral supplement may be needed; but only if you are sure the nutrients are deficient. Vitamin A is present in fresh pasture and top-quality alfalfa hay. Grass hay and raw grain (oats, corn, barley and wheat) do contain some levels of vitamin A, but not enough. If your horse does not have access to fresh pasture or alfalfa hay, a commercial product should be provided that contains sufficient amounts of the vitamin. Over-supplementing with vitamin A can create a toxic situation. The upper-safe limit for a 1,100-pound horse is 80,000 IU (International Units) per day. You must read labels and calculate how much vitamin A your horse is receiving if you are feeding many products that contain high levels of the vitamin. The average recommended amount of vitamin A for a 1,100-pound horse is around 30,000 IU per day. Vitamin C is provided by fresh leafy green forage. Healthy horses can also synthesize their own vitamin C. It is a concern that senior horses may not be able to produce vitamin C internally as well as younger horses. Vitamin C is not toxic if over-supplemented. Large doses can cause stomach up-set and interfere with the absorption of vitamin B-12. Four and one half grams per day of vitamin C is the recommended level for a 1,100-pound horse. The best source of Vitamin E is raw unprocessed or cold processed JULY 2019 • C & C PUBLISHING, INC. ©2019

vegetable oil. Cooking oil purchased from the grocery store has been stabilized, which destroys the vitamin E. Grain, hay and grass contain vitamin E, but during storage or processing (rolling, crimping, crushing, etc.) the vitamin breaks down. Commercial feed manufacturers add vitamin E to their rations. If you decide to supplement vitamin E, chose a product from a reputable manufacturer and follow the directions. Selenium is available in the forage and grain if the geographical area contains sufficient amounts in the soil. Unfortunately, many parts of the country are deficient – including northeast Ohio. Commercial feed manufacturers have taken the selenium deficiencies into consideration when formulating rations. If a good quality product is offered – and fed at the recommended feeding rates stated on the feed tag – the horse should meet his requirements. Selenium can be toxic if over-supplemented. 3.3 mg/kg of diet can produce toxicity. Be aware of the amounts you are offering your horse if several supplements are being fed. Zinc is available to the horse via grain, hay and pasture. But not at the levels needed to meet NRC (National Research Council) recommendations. Commercial feed manufacturers add zinc to their rations. If the product is fed according to the feeding recommendations, the zinc requirements will be met. Premium feeds designed for the performance or reproduction horse will be well fortified. Zinc has a low risk of toxicity. But high levels can interfere with the absorption of copper. A ratio of 3 parts copper to 1 part zinc is recommended. If you decide to add a supplement, make sure you chose one that is balanced. Lipoic acid is synthesized by the horse. Some commercial supplements designed for the performance horse will contain lipoic acid in the formula. Supporting the Antioxidant Special Forces by providing a balanced diet and feeding according to the directions is important to your horse's heath. With your help the insurgents can be kept under control. Earn Professional Certification as Horse Trainer, Stable Manager or Riding Instructor. All courses are online.

Horse Association & Trail Riders News

BLACK SWAMP DRIVING CLUB, OH Wet spring weather made driving difficult, but several BSDC members have been on the move. May 24-26 saw Angie Hohenbrink, Jackie Minges, and Mary Thomas competing at the large Great Lakes Area Driving Series show held at Windy Knoll Farm, Sullivan, OH. In addition to the dressage classes, cones and obstacle courses, and a driving derby, entries had the opportunity for private driving lessons with judge Gary Yeager, Ocala, FL or organizer Stacey Giere. Watching the action were Jon Heffernan, Al Hohenbrink, and Mike Minges. Gray skies cleared up prompting nearly three dozen members of the Black Swamp Driving Club and the Western Reserve Carriage Assoc. to meet at the Carlisle Reservation near Elyria, OH, on June 9. The joint club event was hosted by Jackie Minges and Cathy Rhoades. After a welcome by Rhoades, a strawberry loaded potluck was enjoyed while members had a chance to talk horses, ponies, and driving. Maps of the equestrian area were available and Rhoades pointed out where the trails for carriages were located. Nine turnouts set off for a pleasant afternoon of exploring over 7 miles of byways through woods, along the river, over a bridge, up hills, and skirting meadows filled with wild flowers. In spite of all the rain, the trails were in excellent condition, having been constructed with crushed stone. July 6 will find BSDCers at the annual Wyandot Co. Historical Society's ice cream social displaying antique carriages. Held at the museum in downtown Upper Sandusky, OH, the event hosts large crowds, antique car buffs, and a patriotic band concert, with a light lunch and plenty of pie and ice cream. July 21 is set for the drive at Byers Woods, south of Ashland, OH, a beautiful place to spend an afternoon with driving friends. August will be a busy month, beginning with the Leightey's August 4 drive at their farm near Upper Sandusky, OH. August10 is the Higgins drive at the park in

Meeker, OH, and the Emmons family will be hosting the always popular Parker Bridge drive August 24. You don't need to have a horse or pony to drive to be a member of BSDC. Some members are interested in the history, conservation, and restoration of antique carriages rather than owning an equine. Trips are organized to view carriage collections, watch carriage competitions, or learn about the latest in equine care. Contact an officer, join the BSDC Facebook group, or check the website www.black swampdrivingclub.com for information about becoming a BSDC member.

Fort Custer Horse Friends Association

FORT CUSTER HORSE FRIENDS ASSOCIATION Hello Trail Riders! We would like to thank all the trail riders that came to our Spring Camp Out in May! It was a huge success in spite of the crazy weather we have all been experiencing. We had close to 35 rigs join us at the beautiful Whitford Lake event Area. Nature threw everything at us for the 4 days, sun, rain, cool days, hot days, wind and clouds! But riders hit the trails and and loved every minute of it! The pancake breakfasts filled everyone up with pancakes, sausage, eggs and coffee and not to mention Jon and Daryl Ann's real maple syrup! Saturday night was a pulled pork potluck, the tables overflowing with food. We had a fun group of ladies from Indiana attend. Thank you to all of you ladies for supporting FCHFA events! The trails were groomed and even with the rain, the footing stayed good for riders and horses. Thank you again for your support for our efforts to raise funds to make our future campground possible! The next chance to camp at Fort Custer is September 12-15th at our Annual Fall Equestrian Camp Out. These 4 days include 2 pancake breakfasts, pulled pork potluck, Sat. night fundraising auction and more. There will be water for horses, manure removal, outhouse (FCHFA donated to Park), picket poles, electric corrals may be used, and a pavilion for gathering. The cost this year is still the same, $45 for members JULY 2019 • C & C PUBLISHING, INC. Š2019 (22)

and $60 for non-members for all 4 days! We invite everyone to join and support FCHFA for the coming campground and future trail projects. Just being a member on paper supports the campground project. We understand everyone's limited time. Seriously, $20-$25 for a membership from our trail users will make a big difference for the campground support! Put these days on your ride schedule and ride some of the nicest trails in southern Michigan! Update on Campground: We are waiting on the DEQ to look at and approve the specifications of the site layouts. That said, the Fort Custer Equestrian Campground is already approved! The DEQ is just the final step in a very long approval process with the DNR and the State. A workday will be scheduled to clear scrub vegetation at the back of the 7 sites and mark the rig parking pad layout. Gravel for the rig pads, picket poles, fire rings, picnic tables and everything else for these sites will be paid for and supplied by our FCHFA club. Think about joining to help us!! More news as it develops, soon hopefully. The trails are ready for you and your horse. Mowing is always ongoing, creek crossings rushing with fresh rains with 20+ miles of woods, river trails and prairie grass trails waiting for you! Check our ride calendar on the website www.fchfa.org and join us for a ride/potluck date. Call Nancy Simmonds @ 269-967-3613 for any other questions. See you on the Trails! Toni Strong, FCHFA Secretary

Horse Association & Trail Riders News HORSEBACK ARCHERY IN MI, continued require potential horse archers to purchase access to this information. We can network you with local clubs and archers and get you introduced to the sport. The 2nd Annual Ground Zero Mounted Archers competition in Niles, MI had archers compete from as far away as Texas and Iowa. There were also archers from Canada and Kazakhstan. Despite the rainy weather, competitors ran the Hungarian, Korean 1-2-5, EOCHA, and a Polish style course called “Seizing Sasquatch,” which featured an array of 3D targets, including an 8ft tall Big Foot target. Many congratulations to Michigan's own Bethany Flick, Jennifer Dawson, and Jessica Gruebner for their placings in the open division. Shoutout to Hoosier and honorary Michigander, Shelby Weeks for her placing on the Seizing Sasquatch as well! Additionally, two Michigan youth Mya Dawson and Elijah Darda, dominated in their division. And a special shoutout to Rebecca Andrews for landing the offside shot on the EOCHA course, she may have been the only person to do so? And thank you to Ground Zero Archery for your generosity with the prizes and working so hard to pull off the competition! The 2019 US National Horseback Field Archery competition held in Lewisburg, TN, featured the Commanche Attack, Texas Hunt and short form X-Country courses. Three Michiganders drove down to compete. Pamela Stairs took 3rd place in her division on the Commanche Attack course by taking out a zombie “execution style.” Lily Baughn placed 3rd overall in the novice division! Bethany Flick placed 1st in all her courses in the advanced division, and was awarded Grand Reserve Champion overall. Hillary Merrill brought the Balanced Horse Back Archery Method to the Red Hawk Archery Riders in Stanwood at the end of June. Stay tuned for details. Creekside Horse Park in Waynesburg, OH will be hosting a mounted archery competition a month July through September. Check out their website for more information. Several HBAM members are looking to trailerpool/rideshare. Creekside is also hosting a Mountain Trail Challenge series, and offers Mountain Trail Courses for anyone who might be interested in ride shar-

ing but is not ready for an archery competition...yet. And finally, preparations are underway for the 3rd Annual Michigan Open Horseback Archery Competition, which will feature both Sport Track and Field Courses, specifically the Hungarian, Korean 1-2-5, the Mongolian Hit and Run, and the Red Hawk Field Course through the woods. This year it will be hosted by the Red Hawk Archery Riders out of Stanwood, MI at Healey's Outback Ranch. The Red Hawks would love the help of volunteers, please contact Colette Kay for more information. Volunteering is the best way to get an introduction to the tribe and the sport. We can't wait to meet you!

IONIA HORSE TRAILS ASSOCIATION By the time this reaches you, our 3rd Forbidden Trail Ride will be "in the books". You will have seen many changes at Ionia! Our Equestrian Skills Course ribbon cutting ceremony was May 16, and usage and enjoyment has been high. A group of youth from the Michigan Rehabilitative Services will have made some footing improvements to our corrals, added corrals on two more sites, installed a mounting block at day staging, and may install our coming arena! We have a stock of T-shirts with our new logo and will have long sleeves and sweatshirts available by the time our Annual Meeting rolls around on August 10. Elections happen at this meeting, so come be a part of this "get it done" group. Planning of Phase 2 of the Equestrian Confidence Course begins late summer and we'd love to have your input! You don't have to be a board member to contribute, but we do have room for a couple more motivated riders. The board will be camping for the weekend of August 9-11, so come on out and joint us for a potluck at 1:00 on Saturday, with burgers being provided by IHTA, and our meeting immediately following. Board members will be easy to find as they will all be sporting red Ionia Horse Trails shirts. There won't be any sponsored games this JULY 2019 • C & C PUBLISHING, INC. ©2019 (23)

weekend, as our task is to ride with all of you! If you've been itching to explore Ionia but hesitate to do it "alone", now is the time! Come on out and we'll show you around! Looking ahead to fall, our Chili Cookoff will be Oct. 5. Hope to see you there with a pot of your favorite chili to enter in the contest. Remember, all entrants must be camping at Ionia, so get that reservation made. Hope we see you at each and all of these events!

KENSINGTON TRAIL RIDERS Summer appears to be in full swing and Mother Nature is determined to refill the aquifers and contribute to ending any drought Michigan may have been experiencing. At the moment there is not much to report on regarding opportunities to camp at the Kensington Metro Park for equestrians or trail improvements and expansion. Board members met with the HCMA supervisor and staff recently and are working together to bring equestrian camping and trail improvements to the park in the future. We still plan on holding the KTR shared event Circle Ride and camp weekend September 13-15 with the Proud Lake Trail Rider's. Details will be coming soon regarding camp reservations, so be sure to check our website. There is still a fun group of trail riders who meet up on the first Saturday of the month, weather permitting to ride at the park. This ride is not sponsored by the KTR but information regarding this and other social riding events is available on the KTR Facebook page and the Southeast Michigan Equestrian Trail Group Events link and Facebook. Thank you for your support and patience as we work together to improve facilities and trails at the Kensington Metro Park.

MAYBURY TRAIL RIDERS ASSOCIATION Maybury is wet and wild due to the Michigan monsoon spring we are STILL experiencing. The deer flies are not happy with the cool weather, I only saw one yesterday. The 2019 Destination Ride was a success, it dawned bright and clear and the temperature was very pleasant. The park has put in a parking lot for the day use campground and we were able to ferry our picnic supplies through the Napier gate. Thank You Maybury, it made it so much easier and safer for all. The food was fantastic as usual, and we all pitched in and made it happen. We missed you Jennie, get better soon! What a wonderful time! National Trails Day sponsored by REI, June 1st was another beautiful day, cool and no rain, The Maybury Trail Riders had a crew of 8, we got the Napier Rd. entrance weed wacked, trimmed, and the fence put back in order. Thank you to all who came and pitched in. We did get the Maggie trail remarked with the red linear signs. Glad to get that done, it feels official. The rest of the signage project is on hold until next year as we need to go through the grant process. We will submit a proposal this fall for the trail grant through the DNR. Our park management prefers us to use the DNR's sign division and not a commercial company. I also learned that the sign division has a large backlog of work, so we must wait. We will persist and insist! Someone pulled up one of the NO BIKE signs on horse trail right by the summer bike trailhead. I'm planning on getting it replanted and to put more up in that area. The bike trailhead is located on former horse trails and needs clarifying for the bikers. The trails look wonderful considering how wet it is. Bug spray and fly bonnets are advisable.

The next ride will be on July 20th and 21st at Elba Equestrian Complex. This is a special ride to most CMO members because it supports the Horses for Hope program. This program works with students who have been diagnosed with cancer by giving them time to be with horses. Horses are amazing and sensitive animals; working with and riding them offers many rewards, not the least of which is a distraction from the trials of life. If you have questions about this ride or how you can help Horses for Hope, please contact Horses for Hope on Facebook or Greg Weirauch at 810.955.9368. He and his wife Linda are wonderful at sharing the stories of this journey and the children it helps. We hope to see you there! See you on the trails! Janet

MiCMO MICHIGAN COMPETITIVE MOUNTED ORIENTEERING (MICMO) Despite the rain and muddy conditions, Under the Sea CMO at Silver Creek continued as planned. Unfortunately, my team was not able to attend but I believe a good time was had. The Turn & Burn Babes did not disappoint with a first place both Saturday and Sunday. It is early in the season, but they have a good lead on points nationally. Good job ladies! For the short course, Grandma's Gang secured Saturday and Sunday. They also lead the nation in points for the 2019 season. Again, Michigan is proving to be a strong force nationally in competitive mounted orienteering. The National Association of Competitive Mounted Orienteering has nine groups across the country. Some of these groups are just getting started. There are many rides in Michigan, Indiana and Illinois. It is wonderful to hear about our members crossing the border to join rides and members from the “south” coming up to enjoy our trails. Fortunately, CMO is a very friendly sport where teams often help each other out and laugh together about their mistakes. All rides welcome new riders and

MICHIGAN TRAIL RIDERS ASSOCIATION Here in Michigan it is riding between rain showers! But the 1st June Shore to Shore had good weather. There were 79 riders of which 49 rode shore to shore for a trophy. One horse and buggy completed the ride! The second June shore to shore which starts in Empire on Lake Michigan and rides east to Oscoda and Lake Huron has now started. 118 riders have signed up for the ride so it may be one of the largest of the year. As this starts after school is out, more families are able to attend. Also, with some layover days it makes a more relaxing ride. The MTRA June board of directors meeting takes place about half way during this ride, on June 22. Included on the agenda is upcoming workbee hopefully on the Cheboyagan trail camp. This will be the northern most camp on the north spur. Our 2020 calender of rides will be presented and voted on for approval. Follow the MTRA news on the website www.MTRA.org.

Both were good refreshers for me and helped to warm my horse up for my semi-private lesson with Dorothy where I was able to work on lead changes and canter pirouettes. The other rider in my lesson worked on solid basics which was a good reminder for me on how to manage those basics. You could look across the arenas and see the improvements being made by both horses and riders as a result of the clinicians' instruction. There was a sense of WOW and you just knew there was magic in the air. I sure wish I could go again next week.

YANKEE SPRINGS TRAIL RIDERS ASSOCIATION Board Meeting Minutes – June 12, 2019 This meeting was held at YS Horsemen's campground pavilion starting at 6:30 with a potluck meal. Ron Walker called the meeting to order and led us in the Pledge of Allegiance. Work Bee Update May 17 & 18, YSTRA would like to thank everyone who helped out these 2 days. The new Steps in the Obstacle course were completed on Friday. We hope you enjoy using them. There is still some work that needs to be done on the sides of the steps to reduce erosion. A suggestion to install telephone pole side rails might help the problem. A work day will be set up to work on this project. Also completed were 2 more corrals on sites 21&12. Please take care of all the corrals so they will last for many years to come. Clean up your horses manure and hay when you leave. Close and lock the corral gates. The wind blows the gates open and shut which will cause them to sag over time. A lot of work went into building these corrals for your enjoyment, please take care of them. YSTRA is aware of the ongoing issue with the corrals being muddy, especially this year with all the rain. We have filled corrals with sand several times since they have been built which only helps for a short time. WWW.SADDLEUPMAG.COM


Horse Association & Trail Riders News YANKEE SPRINGS TRAIL RIDERS, cont. We discussed 2 options to deal with the muddy stalls. 1. Add 3” of lime stone then 5” of 23A road gravel. A price will be researched for a 144 sq. ft. area. 2. Install soil erosion matts with compacting gravel added on top. Prices will be researched and brought to the next meeting. Members thought site 16 would be a good site to build the next corral if materials became available. June 22nd Judged Trail Ride: If you would like to volunteer to work this event please show up at 8 am and I will put you to work. The Billy the Kid trail around camp will be your obstacle course, so after you are done you will have time to go ride the 4 mile trail before the pot luck lunch at 1:00, and awards at 2:00. Trail Report: The 9 mile has been cleared but we understand there is now a down limb at Shaw Road. Trail clearing is a never-ending job, thank you for reporting the downed trees to YSTA.

The water hand pump is now working on the 9 mile. If you stop to offer your horse water you will need to prime the pump first, just pour water down the top of the handle then pump. Always leave water for the next person to use as a primer. The 4 mile has been cleared. There are 2 downed trees on the 6 mile that you can get around until these are cleared out. Land Manager Report: There has been a No Bike sign installed in the back of camp as there were bike riders cutting through camp and going out the back onto a small trail. Brad has the car counter and will install it when he has time. We asked Brad to inquire about the Spur Trail and where this request is at in Lansing. Still hoping the Stewardship department will give directions where a new trail can be created. New Business: Next meeting review the Strategic plan created in 2016 to keep YSTRA in line with our goals. Next meeting July 10, will be at Sandy's Country Kitchen. All members are welcome to join the board meetings. Happy Trails, Kathy Taylor, YSTRA Secretary

Ways Stress, Diet, and Lameness Impacts Performance Horses, PART 2 By Shelby Agnew, Saddle Up! Magazine Reporter At Large Lameness in Performance Horses: This can encompass a reluctance to transition to each gait, leaning on the bit, rearing, failing to engage, and/or constant stiffness. Other conflict behaviors can entail head shaking, gaping of the mouth, refusing to accept the bit, pulling on the reins, and excessive tail swishing, (Gorecka-Bruzda). While some equestrians can recognize basic lameness in their horses, “There appears to be a perception among riders and trainers that horses can have ‘a lazy hind limb,’ whereas in reality most of these horses are lame horses,” (Dyson). Several studies Dyson mentioned found that the majority of horses that were previously thought to be sound by their owners were actually lame, proving that many people do not realize when their horses are off. Although, it may be more difficult for owners of show jumpers and eventers to recognize their horses’ pain in comparison to owners of dressage horses. Horses that jump seem more tolerant of pain, possibly because their varied riding schedules lead them to be happier despite possible discomfort, (Dyson). When riders do ask a veterinarian to evaluate their horses for lameness, it is usually not because they understand that their equine partner is hurt, but that they have been experiencing poor performance, (Dyson). Oftentimes, these horses have suspensory or other ligament injuries, and they will exhibit pain through obvious behaviors, such as avoiding being caught in the pasture to ride, biting or kicking out while tacking up, pinning ears, and resisting forward movement when ridden. If riders properly analyze CB in their sport horses, they can avoid serious lameness, which will elongate the show career while promoting the healths of their equine partners. Ways to Prevent Stress in Performance Horses: When trainers rely on methods based on natural behavior and productive exercise, the performance horse will undergo more positive stress. Instead of harmful effects that are detrimental to the horse’s health, the horse will experience a rise in cortisol levels, which decreases inflammation, stimulates movement, and increases blood glucose concentration, (Bartolomé & Cockram). Even though some horses are naturally sensitive to stressful situations such as a new lesson, the trainer can recognize this trait and slowly introduce the unfamiliar exercise, allowing the horse time to work through it. At the same time, the horse’s temperament will boost, which increases the desire to work and helps the lesson become more productive. This can be compared to the impact of positive mindsets on human athletes since the better they mentally feel, the better they will often practice and compete. Hall et al. recounted that trainers can remember to implement positive reinforcement in their training techniques, especially after a horse experienced negative reinforcement, since it results “…in increased motivation to participate and increased exploratory behavior.” Essentially, the horse wants to learn. This is because “…it is the change from a less preferred to a more preferred situation that lifts mood and improves optimism,” (Hall). Additionally, horses should be trained for disciplines that best fit their natural abilities, lessening the amount of distress they would undergo compared to being forced into disciplines that are physically unsuitable for them. The International Federation for Equestrian Sports (FEI), an equestrian governing entity, states that “‘…horses must only undergo training that matches their physical capabilities and level of maturity for their JULY 2019 • C & C PUBLISHING, INC. ©2019

respective disciplines,” and that “…welfare must take precedence over all other demands,” (Gorecka-Bruzda). Showing a horse that is physically or psychologically unprepared – or poorly prepared – could lead to mental and physical harm, (Gorecka-Bruzda). It is both ethically wrong and illegal among the FEI to place undue distress on a performance horse. If a trainer decides that a certain horse is not meant for the discipline during its time in training, then the horse can be sent to a different trainer to find a new job. In the cutting horse industry, some young horses in training do not have the minds or athleticism for the sport in the long term, so they are eventually turned into reined cow, ranch, or sorting horses with happy careers. Meanwhile, positive methods of training are still imperative for a horse’s training routine since it will stimulate an increased desire to work in the discipline the horse truly enjoys. To reduce the number of horses that are easily distressed, breeders should try to avoid crossing horses with specific genes that contribute to innate stress. This includes Interleukin 8 and heatshock protein 90, which are both related to a stress induced response from exercise, (Bartolomé & Cockram). If horses are bred to react to natural stress productively, this will reduce the number of horses with damaged mental states. As well as breeding specific genes, horses with ideal conformation should be crossed. Equines with poor skeletal and muscle structures such as thin legs and poor toplines, or even a massive height, are prone to injuring themselves when competing, which is a stressful event in any horse’s life. Dyson cites investigations that conclude that dressage horses who are at least 17.3 hands tall have a fifteen percent increase risk of lameness than those shorter than them. The taller the horse, or the less symmetric the hooves are, the more likely the horse will go lame, shortening the performance career. If both horses being bred have strong overall conformations, there is a high chance they will produce a foal that can become a successful athlete that is not as prone to injury and will not have to experience the distress that being hurt causes. To improve the welfare of equine athletes, future show horses can be selectively bred to have excellent conformation, personality, health, and physiology, allowing them to react to stimuli effectively. To prevent distress on performance horses during trailering, they can be given a certain feed that reduces the negative impact. Each of the activities associated in transportation, from loading and unloading, the drive, and competition, can be perceived as a bad stressor by the horse. Konig v. Borstel et al. write that “Transportation often combines the effects of claustrophobia with neophobia and social separation” and according to Butterfield et al., this can upset the horse’s “…immune system and welfare, which in turn can have a negative impact on its performance.” The latter (28) WWW.SADDLEUPMAG.COM


researchers referenced that the transportation process causes four main effects: “(1) catabolism of tissue; particularly skeletal muscle; (2) depletion of physiological ions; (3) depletion of glycogen and energy reserves and hypoglycemia; and (4) dehydration,” and consequently, horses may lose weight and body condition (Butterfield). These consequences are consistent with the findings of Bartolomé & Cockram as well as Gorecka-Bruzda et al. All of this research has proven that when horses are placed in stressful environments, their welfare declines. To reduce transportation stress, DeStress Nutritional Technology, a nutrition company, created a supplement, which can improve the horse’s health. Butterfield et al. conducted research on this feed to study its influence on the horse through noninvasive infrared thermography (IRT) on the temperature of the eye since heat production typically increases in times of distress. The ten horses that were part of the study were a mix of mares and geldings from the ages of five to twenty-two who held show careers in steer wrestling and barrel racing. Those not in the control group were fed the DeStress supplement the day before transportation and underwent IRT before and after being trailered. The treated group experienced less than a five hundredth change in temperature, significantly less than the control group who did not receive the feed (Butterfield). This suggests that the DeStress supplement positively impacts the health of the horse since the treated horses did not experience such an altering temperature change from being fed a diet that reduces natural transportation stress. When veterinarians and owners continue to construct a feed plan for their performance horses, they can include DeStress’ supplement to decrease the amount of distress the horses experience as they are trailered to/from shows. Conclusion: Performance horses are more than willing to give their riders their full hearts and energy, but it is difficult for them to do so if they feel uncomfortable from stress, soreness, or a poor diet. While there is positive stress from enjoyable activities, distress from certain environments can severely impact sport horses. Lameness also harms a horse’s health, and feed can be taken into consideration to achieve the optimal well-being of the horse, even to lower stress. Through proper training, an attentiveness to behavior, and nutritional work with a veterinarian, the welfare of performance horses as well as the partnership and time with riders can be strengthened.

Compassionately partnering with horses to heal both horse and human, Hidden Promise uniquely offers opportunities for empowerment.

Your Prerogative By Kim Cardeccia | www.ConfidenceThroughConnection.com There's a saying that has been around for quite a while, something about it being a woman's prerogative to change her mind. I think that this should actually morph into an updated version that as a leader, it's our prerogative to change our minds. In recent clinic situations, I have asked several times, "Tell me what would happen if you changed your mind?" The very first time that I asked it, there was simply curiosity behind it. The participant that sparked the question was asking her horse to complete a task but he had his feet set hard in the dirt and was not budging in his opinion of walking on that thing. The focus of the clinic was reducing worry in our horses and ourselves. Not necessarily demanding compliance from our horses (or ourselves), more about how to expand confidence and enjoyment for both parties. Sometimes when we're in a teaching position, our questions can be leading in nature. This first time I asked this question, there was none of that involved. I was completely curious about what was inspiring this participant to keep steadfast to her request. Her answer was honest. She didn't know why she wasn't considering changing her mind. The best reason that we came up with for this choice was because she asked her horse to do it, and he needed to do what she asked him to. Many of us were taught initially that we had to let our horses know who the boss was, and to demand compliance in order to establish ourselves as the leader. There are some situations were strict compliance is appropriate JULY 2019 • C & C PUBLISHING, INC. ©2019

and in order. However, I don't think that it goes across the board and translates to every situation in establishing a trusting bond that enforces our leadership with our horses. Good leadership is more about honoring the followers than obeying the leader. Sometimes, as we interact with our horses, it might be better for both of us if we change our mind from our original plan. It could be that we discover a resistance in our horse that we weren't aware of, and addressing this first will help reach the original goal. It could be that it just doesn't feel right to us anymore and we'd prefer to do something else with our horse. Changing our mind and amending or abandoning our original goal does not mean that we are failing as a leader. Actually, it can mean quite the opposite. There can be many reasons that we abort our original intentions that justify that decision. Those reasons are really secondary to a dynamic that occurs first. If we start to question if our horse can complete the task we've chosen, or wonder if it will take too long, or any other question we develop, our beliefs are altered. If we no longer have a steady belief that we'll get where we want to go the way we want to get there, changing our minds is a very appropriate solution. And, paying attention to the way we get to our goal is very important to maintaining our horse's trust. Adopting the option of changing our mind can shift things in a positive way for our horses and for us. It's okay to think out of the box. It's okay to change our minds. Our horses will appreciate our creativity and flexibility and we'll set ourselves up for many more successes as a team. That is superior leadership.

When the Phone Says “No Service” By Robert Eversole | www.TrailMeister.com When you're out in the wild and need to call for help, don't be surprised if your cellphone reads “No Service.” Losing your cell signal while outdoors can be annoying – but if you're out riding or camping your cellphone signal can mean the difference between life and death. Injuries, being lost, and any other number of hazards can mean we need to call for help – but if there's no signal to carry your message, then what do you do? Unlike the phone you use every day, GPS communicators don't need a cell signal to work. Instead, they use the network of satellites constantly orbiting overhead. Not only can they be used to track your position, but they can also be used to send and receive packages of data. We're talking around 140 characters, like in the early days of text messaging. That may not sound like much, but it's enough to tell your loved ones where you are (or that you're delayed), receive medical advice, and even download an up-to-date weather report. They can also contact search and rescue virtually anywhere in the world if things get serious. I tested the three most promising satellite messengers from SatPaq, SPOT, and Garmin. I won't sugarcoat it: none of these tools are perfect. That being said all of them could save your life when the trail gets rocky. Each of these devices have a number of basic functions in common. When activated, all of them let you do the following in areas without cellphone reception: · In case of a non-life-threatening emergency, alert your personal contacts that you need help · In case of a life-threatening emergency, activate an SOS button that directly notifies emergency responders of your distress signal, as well as your GPS coordinates · Send text-based messages to your personal contacts · Create shareable online maps of your adventure so others can follow along in (near) real time · Track your journey SatPaq: A clip-on antenna that turns your smartphone into a satellite communicator. · PRO: Inexpensive to purchase and to use. Takes advantage to the phone that's already in your pocket. · CON: Needs your cell phone · PRICE: $250 · COST OF OWNERSHIP: .29 to .40 per message NIFTY FACT: The SatPaq communicates through Geostationary (GEO) satellites when there is no cell or WiFi coverage. GEO satellites don't move relative to your position on earth so they're always in view and your communications can happen right away. Horse and mule riders like to get off the beaten path – We long for the backwoods, and back country refuges of isolation where (hopefully) you won't see people for days. The problem is when you're this far in the back country, you're also well out of cell coverage which can make a bad situation much worse if there's ever a serious injury or illness. You won't have to worry about that potential worst-case scenario if you're carrying a SatPaq. The SatPaq from Higher Ground is a lightweight device that easily JULY 2019 • C & C PUBLISHING, INC. ©2019

From left to right: Garmin inReach, SatPaq, and SPOT X clips to your smartphone and connects wirelessly using Bluetooth to communicate through satellites when there is no cell coverage. SatPaq's SpaceLinq free app allows you to send and receive messages, get instant weather forecasts, share your location, and get help in emergencies – all without monthly service fees. SatPaq also features an Artificial Intelligence medical service to answer first aid questions and an SOS service for emergencies. It is iPhone and Android compatible and can hold a charge for 4-5 months in storage. It’s also only 4 ounces – less than my iPhone! SatPaq eliminates the monthly fees associated with other satellite messengers through the purchase of message credits called MessagePaqs that allow you to use the service whenever you need. These message credits holdover until you use them. If you spend time exploring away from cell phone coverage, the SatPaq is a very attractive piece of gear! SPOT X: A rugged communications device that will send texts independently, without a linked smartphone. · PRO: QWERTY keyboard and a built-in digital compass · CON: Keyboard has tiny hard to use buttons. Cannot pair with a phone. Does not support maps · PRICE: $250 · COST OF OWNERSHIP: $164-$380 per year NIFTY FACT: The SPOT X is the company's first device with twoway satellite messaging. The SPOT X is a stand-alone two-way satellite messaging device. The other devices we tested allow for two-way, customized messaging, but they require a smartphone for easy typing. The SPOT's built-in QWERTY keyboard makes it stand out. You compromise nothing by using the X on its own. In fact, you couldn't link it with your smartphone even if you wanted to. The Spot X can send and receive text messages and short emails. This makes it fundamentally different than SPOTS's other devices such as the Gen3, which can only send messages. Messages can be predefined, custom, or even posted to social media to keep all of your peeps in the know. Each Spot X unit is assigned a personal U.S. mobile number, which makes sending messages to the device easy. The process of sending messages to the other devices we tested is less straightforward. The Battery life of the SPOT X far surpasses that of the Garmin inReach, going twice as long (10 days). (32)

slow process of ticking off characters on the inReach keypad. The Bottom Line: Which Satellite Messenger Should I Pick? Your answer will depend on your unique needs. Here are the main questions that I consider before choosing a device. · What are your biggest priorities? Easy, quick messaging? Battery life? Cost savings? Compact size and weight? Navigational tools? · Do you plan to also carry a smartphone and use it in conjunction with your satellite messenger, or do you want a standalone device? Beyond the classic 10 essentials, modern SOS devices provide a greater increase in your overall outdoor safety than most other gear available. They offer peace of mind to your loved ones, and twoway communication with search and rescue teams and medical professionals. Simply put, you should buy one, learn to use it and show your riding partners how to use as well, and bring it with you on every wilderness adventure. Try each of the devices during TrailMeister trail riding and horse camping clinics. Clinic attendees have the opportunity to use and test live satellite messenger devices during my clinics. You can find the schedule, more info on horse camping, as well as the largest horse trail and camp guide in the world at www.TrailMeister.com.

“No Service”, continued Along with sending and receiving messages, the SPOT X can also track your location at regular intervals; send SOS messages directly to the GEOS International Emergency Response Coordination Center; and function as a rudimentary navigation device with a built in compass and the ability to set waypoints. The SPOT X is a solid backcountry communications option, so long as you can accept the keyboard and lack of mapping capabilities. Garmin inReach: SMS devices allow users to communicate via text message to friends, family and rescue operators at a fraction of the price of regular satellite phones. These tools also allow for continuous tracking so that contacts back home can follow along with your journey. · PRO: Reliable, Rugged, Accurate, Pre-loaded topographic maps · CON: Unit is bulky, heavy, expensive · PRICE: $300-$450 · COST OF OWNERSHIP: $180 to $1,200 per year NIFTY FACT: There are two flavors of Garmin inReach: the Explorer+ and the SE+. The Explorer adds topo maps, a built-in digital compass, barometric altimeter, and accelerometer. The Garmin inReach Explorer+ is a significant investment: it's $450 for the device; service plans and insurance coverage add more to the cost. But what's the price of safety and peace of mind? If I got into trouble, the inReach can help me get out. And for friends and loves ones, the ability to communicate with me while I'm in the back country is invaluable. Rugged and ready, inReach devices use the iridium satellite network of 66 low orbit satellites offering 100% coverage worldwide to help ensure your messages are received. Both versions of the inReach excel at messaging, as long as you set your expectations appropriately. Satellite communications, no matter the network or the technology employed, have inherent limitations. Sometimes you'll have to wait a few minutes for satellites to pass overhead and send and receive the messages. The simplest way to send messages with the inReach is through the Garmin EarthMate smartphone app. On the app, it's easy to add your contacts and then send and receive a big batch of messages. Pre-programmed messages make it much easier to send quick updates, so you don't have to type the same message multiple times. Without the phone app composing messages is a painfully JULY 2019 • C & C PUBLISHING, INC. ©2019

A Bargain Saddle? By Don Blazer | www.horsecoursesonline.com Did you pay too much for your saddle? Or did you get a bargain? Only you can answer; but maybe you don't want to know. What might be more important than having gotten a bargain or having paid too much in the past, is to know how best to shop for your next saddle. Today's “using” saddles can be priced from several hundred dollars to more than $8,500…and specialty or antique saddles can easily range into the tens of thousands. The keys to a perfect saddle purchase are: value, fit, fit and fit. Value is paying a fair price for the saddle, and a fair price can be defined as “exchanged worth.” You are going to give so many dollars and you want the saddle to be an “equal exchange” for those dollars. So it's a matter of perception…if dollars don't mean much…then the number of dollars you pay doesn't mean much. On the other hand, if dollars mean something, you better be getting your money's worth. When you decide to buy a saddle you are saying, “I want this particular desire fulfilled.” You need to be well focused on what that desire is, and what can fulfill it. No wishy-washy idea will do. Know the kind of saddle you want! Three things are mandatory: fit, fit and fit. The saddle must fit you! English or western, jumping or cutting, pleasure or gaming, you must be comfortable in the saddle at all times. A saddle that makes you think about it when you are riding is JULY 2019 • C & C PUBLISHING, INC. ©2019

overpriced at any price. When you are riding, your saddle should be so comfortable that you never think about it. No matter the price, you've paid too much if the saddle doesn't fit your horse. If you are buying a ready-made saddle, you must have the opportunity to “try it – on your horse – before you buy it.” If you can't do that, the saddle is no bargain. (If the saddle is being shipped from a far away maker, then you should have the right to return it if it doesn't fit the horse.) If the saddle is custom built, the saddle maker will want measurement of your horse in order to determine the proper tree, skirt lengths, gullet, etc. Finally, the price must fit your budget. It doesn't matter if you can spend $1 million on a saddle – set a budget so you'll get a saddle that satisfies your definition of “value.” Here are a couple of “save dollars” shopping tips: if you are ordering a custom-built saddle, tell the saddle maker the highest amount you'll pay, and then let him design to fit the budget. Saddle makers can be very creative and stay within the budget. Buying a used saddle that fits, fits and fits, plus is eye-appealing to you is often a better value than getting a new saddle. When it comes to silver, more is less. If you are buying custom, only have “sterling” silver used; silver plate and other imitations fade fast and are dollars wasted. You can get what you want at a price you are willing to pay, but if it doesn't fit three ways, you've paid too much!

Riding Right with Julie Goodnight

Two-Handed Reining and the One-Rein Stop By Julie Goodnight | www.juliegoodnight.com Dear Julie, I have a question regarding using one rein, versus two, while riding and stopping your horse. When I ride with two hands or use the onerein stop on my horses, it seems to calm them and refocus their attention. Can you help explain why direct rein pressure seems to be so effective? Thanks, Two-handed Dear Two-handed, Any horse will work better when the reins are used one at a time or with alternating pressure as opposed to applying pressure to both reins at the same time. There are several reasons for this, and all have to do with the horse's comfort. First, when you pull on both reins at the same time, it causes a horse to clench his jaw, stiffen his neck and lean into the pressure. It also puts constricting pressure on his tongue, making it impossible for him to swallow and gives him a choking sensation; this will cause him to lift his head and hollow in the neck and back. Secondly, using both reins at once puts you and your horse in a tugof-war that he will always win, because he outweighs you by so much. It gives the horse something to lean on or brace against. We want our horses to stay soft in the jaw and relaxed in the neck with his topline slightly rounded. That will only happen when you use one rein at a time. The mechanics of the bit are such that when you pull on both reins at the same time, it creates pressure all over his mouth, jaw and palate, clamping his tongue down. It is too much pressure and the horse's only concern will be to get away from the pressure however he can. You also lose any ability to be articulate with the rein aids and use the reins to influence certain parts of his body, because the pressure is everywhere and is relentless. Even in a hackamore, rope halter, side-pull, etc., you'll get the same response if you pull on both reins at the same time and statically. It simply gives the horse something to brace against and lean on. He cannot lean on one rein because it focalizes the pressure and keeps his neck bent instead of poking out straight. You'll always have more control over the horse when his neck is slightly bent than when it is straight. It is when the horse stiffens his neck straight in front of him with his jaw clenched that we lose control. Using one rein to stop or using both reins alternately for collection is ideal. Even when using both reins, you always want to keep a rhythm in the reins so that you are not pulling on both reins at the same time – this rhythm should match the movement of the horse's hind legs. There is a well-documented behavior that I think helps explain why horses are more responsive to one rein than two. When a horse eats or drinks (from the ground) he is very vulnerable because his vision is so poor at that point that he can only see the ground immediately around him. Therefore, when a horse eats or drinks (in the wild) he will eat a few bites, slowly lift his head, swing it to one side, go back down for another few bites, lift his head, slowly swing JULY 2019 • C & C PUBLISHING, INC. ©2019

it to the other side. It is theorized that this is an instinctive behavior of horses that helps keep them safe from predators when their head would otherwise be down in that vulnerable position. Therefore, if we can move a horse's nose from side to side and keep his neck loose and relaxed, he stays soft and calm. When a person pulls relentlessly on both reins in an attempt to bring the horse into control or to get him to come on the bit, it tends to lead to the horse getting more and more out of control and agitated until he begins to "run through the bridle" in an attempt to escape the confusing, painful and relentless pressure on his mouth. The more you pull back, the faster the horse goes. It is hard for people to grasp that they need to release the pressure before they can get the horse to stop or be responsive at all. Using the one-rein stop, you'll never have this problem, even if your release is not as good as it should be. By and large, the biggest problem that people have riding is not releasing the horse from bit pressure enough. Finally, using the one rein stop will lead to a disengagement of the hindquarters (disengagement occurs when the horse crosses his hind legs) which will always cause the horse to calm down, focus on you and accept your authority. Again, this is a natural behavior of horses but one that is only seen in neo-natal foals (foals under one month of age). If the mother disciplines the foal, he will sometimes drop his head and cross his hind legs in contrition. When a horse crosses his hind legs, it takes away his flight response, leaving him in a more cooperative mood. When you lift up one rein toward your belly button or opposite shoulder, it causes the horse to disengage as he stops. As soon as you feel the horse's back bend as his hip comes under you (it is a very distinctive feel) you release the rein entirely. With practice, a slight lift of one rein will cause the horse to stop. We use disengagement any time we lose a horse's attention or anytime he becomes nervous or fractious – from the ground or from the saddle. We use the one rein stop on young horses or any horses that are very forward and/or resistant to pressure from the reins. The finished horses stop off your seat, without any rein pressure at all. Disengagement and the one-rein stop are generally techniques that you can use on any horse at any time. Enjoy the ride!

DEVOTED TO YOUNG EQUESTRIANS

THE FRIESIAN HORSE Friesian horses originated in Friesland – a province of The Netherlands (Holland). The Friesian horse, one of Europe’s oldest breeds, was originally imported to North America in the seventeenth century (1601-1700) but the breed was totally lost in North America due to crossbreeding. The Friesian was not reintroduced to North America until 1974. Friesian horses are very versatile and can be used in riding for pleasure and in competition, for dressage, driving for pleasure or competition and even for light farm work. Unlike some other European warmbloods, Friesians have not been bred as jumpers, although some owners enjoy jumping their horses. Friesian stallions must be at least 15.3 hands by the age of four and mares and geldings must be at least 15 hands to enter the adult studbooks. The height of 15.2 to 16 hands is average. The average weight is 1300+ pounds. There are currently more than 45,000 Friesians registered worldwide in the Dutch Friesch Paarden Stamboek (Friesian Horse Studbook). Approximately 8,000 of those horses are located in North America. A judging (keuring, in Dutch) is an evaluation of horses here in North America by officials from the Netherlands. Once a year, teams of officials qualified by the Friesch Paarden Stamboek are sent to North America to inspect or “judge” our horses. This is a thorough evaluation process that helps us to upgrade our breeding programs. The horses are judged in-hand and 60% of the evaluation is based on the quality of movement and 40% is based on conformation. Most Friesians are judged twice in their life: once when they are foals – for entry in the Foal Book – and again when they are three years or older and eligible to enter the adult studbooks. When a foal or horse is judged, it may be awarded a premie, or “premium”. This is an award used to designate the horses with the most desirable characteristics. A first premium is best, second is very good, third is most common and some horses will not receive a premium. The premiums awarded to each horse appear on his or her registration certificate. In addition to the premium, as each mare or gelding is judged for admission to the adult studbooks, it is ranked using a “linear score” sheet. This linear score assigns positive or negative point scores to many individual aspects of conformation, breed characteristics and movement as exhibited by the horse. The JULY 2019 • C & C PUBLISHING, INC. ©2019

score sheet for each individual horse is given to the owner. In addition, the linear scores for all the offspring of each stallion are combined and published. This composite score provides a way of evaluating the strengths and weaknesses that each stallion passes on to his offspring. By matching the strengths and weaknesses of the mare and stallion, we can use the linear scores to choose the best match between sire and dam in order to continually improve the breed. When a mare or gelding enters the adult studbook, the best 25% to 30% are awarded “Star” status. This designation appears on the horse’s registration certificate. The very, very best of the Star Mares can be awarded the designation of “Model”. Mares can receive the designation preferent (”Preferred”), if four of their offspring achieve star status or better. And mares with three offspring performing at the top levels in competitive sport can receive the designation of prestatie, or “Performance Mother”. In the registry of the Friesch Paarden Stamboek, only Approved Studbook Stallions can sire horses that are eligible for entry in the main studbook registers. There are approximately 100 Approved Stallions in the world today and about a quarter of those are in North America. The selection and testing requirements for a stallion to gain breeding approval are so rigorous that only a handful of young stallions are approved each year. Four years after approval, the stallion’s offspring must demonstrate to the studbook inspectors that the stallion makes a positive impact on the breed or his approval will be withdrawn. It is a merciless selection process that insures that only the very best stallions will influence the future of the Friesian horse.

THE FRIESIAN HORSE, cont. Throughout history, the Friesian has been prized for its strength, versatility, disposition and elegance. Boasting a fine, balanced structure, the breed has both conformation and ability on its side and has been utilised in a number of ways over its development. Popular as a war mount, carriage horse and light draught animal, the Friesian has never been short of work. Because of its favourable attributes, the Friesian has featured in many motion pictures, starring as the glorified and dependable steed in The Mask of Zorro, The Chronicles of Narnia, and The Hunger Games, to name a mere few. The Friesian of today is best observed in driving and competition capacities, and is also a favorable leisure horse for everyday riding. Usually black in color, the equine possesses a thick, flowing mane and tail, well conformed legs, and a strong, defined head.

FRIESIAN FACTS • By 1913, there were only 3 remaining Friesian stallions in their home province of Friesland. However, the breed was revived in World War 2 when fuel shortages once again deemed it necessary to return to horse power. • Being one of the oldest breeds, Friesians had an influence on several new breeds that developed. The Oldenburg, Shire horse, and smaller ponies such as Fell and Dales ponies all inherited some Friesian lines in their early development. • Many people know of Friesians due to the movie Ladyhawke from 1985, which featured a Friesian stallion named Othello. They have also been seen in the movies Eragon, and 300. • In English, the breed was often spelt as “Frisian” so as to differentiate between the horse breed and the Holstein Friesian cattle. However, breed books and registries spell both the horse and cattle name as Friesian with the “e” included in the name. • While Friesians are most commonly known to be pure black in color, in some rare cases, you may find chestnut Friesians. Chestnut is not a favored color for the official Friesian studbook however, so chestnut stallions are not allowed to be registered. • An elegant carriage made just for the Friesian horse was designed in the 18th century (1701-1800) in the province of Friesland. This carriage was called the Friesian Sjees, and was specifically intended to be pulled by Friesian horses. • Although Friesians are one of the oldest breeds, they aren’t extremely common in most parts of the world. • Pure black is typically preferred for the Friesian breed, so most Friesian registries do not allow horses with excessive white markings to be registered. The only marking allowed for registered Friesians is a small white star on the forehead.

What can I do to keep my horse safe while trailering? By Carole Herder | www.cavallo-inc.com Preparation is prevention when it comes to trailering. More than 50 percent of the injuries horses sustain in transportation are to their lower limbs. Ranging in severity, from treatable surface wounds to irreparable impairment, the main causes are scrambling, loss of balance, and conflict with other horses. Less frequent are collisions, fires, over-turned trailers, trappings, falling and tying up. Although daunting, it is your responsibility to be aware of the risks for accidents and injuries and do the best you can to prepare for anything. You don't want to be the one responsible for something that could have been prevented. Equally consider your own aptitude and preparation, your trailer safety and maintenance and your horses' emotional and physical well-being. Here's a checklist of what to do to prepare for trailering trips…. Before you Leave: 1. Be aware of the location of veterinarians and large animal rescue teams along your route. 2. Make sure you have all required documentation and insurance coverage. 3. Check all regulations and health requirements. 4. Carry a first aid kit and know how to use it. 5. Learn how to drive with the extra weight behind you and take it easy. Don't be bullied into driving faster. 6. Ensure you are well rested, stay alert and avoid distractions. 7. Know your vehicle and read the owner's manual. Prep Your Trailer: 8. Check your brakes, wheels, landing poles and jacks. Lubricate as required. 9. Replace batteries as required for lights, safety breakaway and camera monitors. 10. Check your tire tread and pressure. 11. Check your shocks. The vibration of travel can aggravate your horses' joints, muscular and skeletal structure, making your horse sore and stiff. Cavallo Transport Air Boots can help absorb the shock of road travel. 12. Make sure the inside of your trailer is clean and free of infestations, odors and bacteria. 13. Make sure your flooring is solid with no soft or rusted areas. 14. Check your hinges, doors, openings, side walls and roof for any problems. 15. Cover protrusions like bolts or nuts with soft material. Prep Your Horse: 16. We assume that anyone reading this would not try loading a horse without proper training. If your horse won't load, you need to increase the training. Never use anything like forceful electric prods to get the job done. Succumbing to short term measures rarely end well for the horse. JULY 2019 • C & C PUBLISHING, INC. ©2019

17. Horses are herd animals. Transporting in compatible groups gives them emotional comfort. I have a friend whose horse suffered during a tire blowout, sustaining an injury and confined in the trailer until the road was closed and he could safely exit. He became very reluctant to enter a trailer after that. My friend installed mirrors to reflect him as a “companion” for himself, which seemed to provide the comfort of a herd and make the trailer more inviting. 18. Protect your horse's feet. Cavallo Transport Air Boots will ensure proper traction to prevent scrambling and minimize the impact of any incident. 19. The sound of road travel is strange for some horses, so make sure it is not increased by clanking chains and squeaks in your trailer. Try to keep his immediate environment quiet. 20. Avoid respiratory problems and shipping fever by maximizing fresh air circulation. It obviously becomes a bigger problem if there is little wind or frequent stops. Installing a fan may help. 21. Remove soiled bedding often. 22. As a horse's survival instinct is to flee, restraint can increase worry and compromise the immune system. Unfit hooves are a major source of anxiety. Another concern is restriction of their head and neck. 23. Horses balance well and rest in a head down position, carrying their weight on the front quarters and resting one hind leg. Consider allowing a head free position in your trailer. 24. There is some evidence that horses balance better facing in the opposite direction of travel. 25. Allow room for your male horse to stretch out his hindquarters to urinate. 26. If your horse is uncomfortable, feels vulnerable, threatened or overly confined, he can refuse to eat or drink which can result in colic and gastrointestinal problems. Dehydration may be avoided by sprinkling a little salt on the grain to keep them thirsty. 27. Not only is your horse vulnerable to the physical strain of road travel, but emotional stress and nervousness can be farreaching. I always recommend feeding magnesium. It has a calming effect and can also keep them defecating. (54)

Safe Trailering, continued 28. Always ensure horses' buckets are clean and fresh and the contents neither too warm nor cold. You might bring along their own familiar bucket from home. 29. A couple of weeks before you depart, you could start including something like apple juice, apple cider vinegar or even a drink mix powder like Gatorade, so that this familiar taste carries through when the water taste changes. 30. Usually if they are drinking, they will eat. If your horse loves his hay, bring as much familiar hay from home as you can. Have a safe and successful trailing trip.

When the handler and the whip are positioned more at the middle of the horse, it will encourage him to maintain his speed. If the handler moves her body and whip more toward the front for the horse, it will slow him down. If the handler is positioned too far in front of the horse, she will block his forward movement and cause him to stop or change directions.

After working approximately 5-10 minutes of warm-up phase of working at liberty, ask your horse to change directions to repeat this warm up on the opposite track. There are two ways to ask your horse to change directions. One is to ask him to slow his movement to a walk, then “whoa”. Use a mellow, deep tone of voice when asking for down transitions. Walk up to him and turn him around to face the opposite direction using a turn on the forehand, turn on the haunches, or simply lead him in a half-circle. Your Next Step… While we want our horse to move forward during liberty work, we don't want him running around the paddock. He could slip and fall, especially in the turns. If your horse starts running too much, use a mellow voice to soothe him and slow him down with a voice command like “e-a-s-y”. “Stretch out the word so it sounds very long and soothing. What if he is really running around so dangerously fast that he could fall? While still standing on the centerline, position your body and point the whip towards his forehand. This will usually stop a horse. If more reinforcement is still needed, swing the whip towards his forehand to break his action and get him to slow or stop.
