Back From the Brink Managing Emotional Meltdowns in Horses By Julie Goodnight | www.juliegoodnight.com No doubt about it – horses are emotional animals; perhaps more emotional than humans. As prey and herd animals, horses are programmed to adopt the emotions of the animals around them (herd mentality) and react appropriately. It is a life and death matter to a prey animal. When one horse in the herd becomes frightened, generally all the horses will respond in kind. This tendency of horses to adopt the emotions of others applies to the humans around them as well, emphasizing the importance of controlling our own reactions when working with a horse that's on emotional overload. Horses have the same basic emotions as humans – happy, sad, scared, angry, frustrated, lonely, jealous, disgusted. Although we cannot always know exactly what emotion the horse is feeling, it is easy to recognize a horse that's having an emotional meltdown. Whether the horse is panicked, throwing a tantrum over something he does not want to do, or simply overwhelmed and shutting down, this behavior is often dramatic and can be frightening at times. In a perfect world, a horse is always calm, focused, and steady in its behavior, but in the event your world is not perfect and your horse is not a robot, it is good to be prepared to handle emotional overload in horses. Here, I will share some tips for recognizing and analyzing changes in your horse's emotionality as well as my philosophy for managing it. Most importantly, I'll discuss the technical skills you need to employ when your horse's behavior tanks, you feel out of control, and need to get your horse back to a thinking state of mind. Not My Horse… He Never Acts This Way at Home! Any horse may fall victim to emotionality, no matter the age, breed, temperament, or how well trained it is; this is simply the nature of horses. The causes may vary from a simple startle response that triggers flight (rabbit jumps out from a bush), to over-stimulation in a frenetic environment (like a parade; the “first trip to town” scenario), to separation anxiety (herd-bound), or slowly building anxiety that suddenly overflows (often caused by underlying pain issues), to tantrums and refusals (perhaps a result of poor handling, underlying pain, or fear), to a horse that's being asked something it's not capable of in the moment and mentally shuts down (“overfacing” the horse). A horse experiencing an emotional meltdown will likely have its head high, its tail up or stiff or swishing; a distressed expression in its eyes and on its face; tense and perhaps shaking through its whole body (“on the muscle”); calling out, shaking its head, stomping and fidgeting; rearing; searching right, then left, then right (looking for an exit), perhaps attempting to spin and bolt away. At times, a horse that is overwhelmed will simply shut down, become heavy, lethargic, and non-responsive (behavior often referred to as “sulling up”). Whatever the cause, when a horse is emotionally overwhelmed, it is not in a thinking or trainable state of mind. Without relaxing first, the horse cannot think well, and unless and until it returns to a thinking state of mind, no training can occur. Relaxing and regaining control of the horse, then bringing him back to focus, are the immediate goals. As a rider or as a horse handler, your job will be much easier when you learn to recognize small changes in your JUNE 2021 • C & C PUBLISHING, INC. ©2021

horse's emotionality and take proactive steps right away, to bring him back from the brink. Calm + Thinking = Trainable A compliant, attentive, and willing horse has a relaxed posture, with its head and tail low, and its ears relaxed in an east-west position, either focused on the rider/handler or focused on nothing. When the rider gets active from the saddle, both ears focus back, looking for a cue. When asked something from the ground the horse is focused on the handler, calmly looking for clues as to what it should do. A contented horse lowers its head and sighs deeply, often bending a hind leg to rest (much different than cocking the leg tensely, as with a kick threat). Inevitably, things will happen that lead to excessive emotionality in your horse. Paying close attention to the horse's posture, its breathing, the tension in its muscles (fight or flight posturing) and accurately reading the horse's communicative gestures (like tossing its nose, shaking its head, switching the tail, pawing, stomping, cocking a hind foot defensively) will help you understand the origins of the horse's emotions. Analyzing the situation to determine the motivation behind the horse's behavior, is important and will help determine the best response. Is it pure fear, a startle response, separation anxiety, or a total mutiny? Is the horse trying to get away from something or pull toward the barn? Does the horse's reaction point to pain as a root cause, or is it a tantrum from a horse spoiled by poor handling? An emotionally overwrought horse may be fearful, angry, defiant, refusing, searching, or despondent, triggering behaviors like flight or fight responses. One thing we know about horses is that once they enter a cycle of behavior like flight, the behavior tends to escalate – until something happens to stop it. The sooner intervention occurs, the easier it is to get the horse back to a relaxed and compliant state. The longer the horse stays in the cycle of behavior, the harder it is to get them out. Becoming aware of changes in the horse's emotional state when it first happens, analyzing the situational causes, then taking immediate action to bring the horse back from the brink of an emotional meltdown, are the keys to success in handling a horse with extreme emotionality. Training Philosophies That May Help Over the decades of training horses, I've learned to treat an excessive emotionality in horses as a mental health problem, not a training problem. Before anything productive can happen with that (10)

WWW.SADDLEUPMAG.COM


horse, I must get the horse back to a productive mindset (calm, relaxed, and thinking). Whether I am loading an uncooperative horse into a trailer or trying to cross a sticky water hazard, if the horse is having a meltdown, my job is to diffuse and de-escalate the behavior first, by asking the horse to lower its head (relaxing its physical posture), take a deep breath, stroking the horse in reassurance, sometimes gently scolding the horse for infractions. When I am dealing with emotional outbursts in horses, it is critical that I control my own emotions, staying in the moment and taking deliberate and methodical actions. I have learned to breathe deeply, to slow down my own reactions and cues, to exhale as I relax my own body posture. I must stay in a thinking state of mind myself, take control of the situation, and be proactive. The worst things I can do are to shut down, doubt myself, show contradictory body language, and become passive. When a horse's behavior goes south on me, I need to find some familiar ground with the horse, to get him back to a responsive frame of mind. I will issue simple directives to the horse and give basic cues I know the horse knows, like turn right, turn left, stop and go. I will praise and reward the horse's response to these simple cues, reminding the horse that it knows how to respond and how good it feels to be praised. I will regain the horse's responsiveness the easiest way I can. As flight animals, horses are hard wired, mentally, physically, and behaviorally for motion. Horses think better when they are moving. Forward motion helps the rider or handler regain control. Without free and willing forward motion, a horse cannot be trained. However, sometimes movement in the wrong direction triggers the flight response, so I must be prepared to shut down this flight instinct instantaneously. Addressing the horse that is emotionally overwhelmed sometimes means I treat it as a mental health issue and that I must slow down my reactions and control my own emotions. I want to engage the horse in simple cues and responses, so he starts thinking again. Often it is best to keep a distraught horse moving, because a horse that is moving forward may be more easily controlled, yet I must be prepared to shut flight if things get out of control. Technical Skills to Employ Abdominal breathing, keeping your eyes focused, and adopting calm and confident body language are critical skills for the rider or handler. Horses are mimicking animals that communicate primarily with postures and gestures. Having command of your own presence and being able to call up these skills on demand, will get you far with horses. JUNE 2021 • C & C PUBLISHING, INC. ©2021

Learning the hard skills of managing the reins, controlling the nose of the horse, lateral flexion, using the one-rein stop, and how to employ the emergency stop (which is not the same as the one-rein stop); or, from the ground, to use your rope and flag productively, to be aware of spatial issues and positioning, to disengage the hindquarters to stop – these are the skills that allow you to shut down flight or control the horse that moves into you or wants to wheel around and bolt. Bending the horse's neck will help you gain control of a horse that is volatile or threatening aggression or mutiny. Whenever I have concerns about controlling a horse – either from the ground or from the saddle, I will require it to keep a slight bend in its neck as I ride or lead. If the horse's neck is straight out in front of him, it is much easier for the horse to over-power me. However, riders must beware of too much pressure on the outside rein when bending, which may have the opposite result and cause the horse to run through the bridle. De-escalate an emotional response and reestablish control by engaging the horse in a simple activity he knows how to do. Whatever you can do to cue the horse and get a response will engage its mind, start the horse thinking, and allow you to praise it. Think about cues to go, stop, turn. Resort to groundwork basics like circling work, changes of directions, and disengaging the hindquarters – if you are riding, do not be afraid to get off to school your horse from the ground to get his focus back on you. It is important to have these groundwork exercises in your bag of tools to fall back on. Your authority and your horse's confidence may be gained easier from the ground. Elaborating on these hard skills would be better fodder for a book than a blog, and it could take years to master. The soft skills you need that come with greater knowledge and the judgement gained from experience with a variety of horses in a myriad of situations will develop over time. The good news is that all of the educational resources you need to learn these skills are available to you from my online membership programs, in the form of how-to videos, audio podcasts, and instructional articles by the hundreds. Go to www.JulieGoodnight.com/join to find out more. At the End of the Day Recognizing and understanding the horse's emotionality comes first. Keeping yourself in a calm and focused state of mind is paramount to your success with an emotional horse and it requires deliberate practice, to be able to call up these skills on demand. Diffusing the horse's emotionality while maintaining control and authority, requires the rider or handler to stay focused, ride or direct the horse from the ground pro-actively, and employ training skills that get the results needed in that moment. No one ever said riding and training horses would always be easy. Developing the skills, knowledge and judgement you need to handle difficult situations with horses, to gain control in the heat of the moment, and to bring the horse back to a manageable and cooperative mind set, may take years but is well worth the effort. From reading this, you already have a start. I hope you found more clarity on techniques for managing your horse's emotionality and some ideas you can put to work right away!

Equine Wound Care By Dr. Joanna Bronson | http://bronsonvetservices.com/ Horses do get into trouble and seem to find the most creative ways of injuring themselves, even in the safest environments. Injuries can be classified as punctures, incised wounds, lacerations, and abrasions. All but abrasions usually need a tetanus booster if the wound occurs more than three months after a regular tetanus vaccination. Puncture wounds are one of the most frustrating injuries, as they often happen in the hoof region. In cases where a foreign object may be present, the area should be x-rayed with the object in place to determine possible damage to the surrounding area. This will determine the method of treatment. Do not attempt to remove the object. Leave this for your veterinarian. Although a puncture wound is small, it can quickly become complicated by infection as contamination is already deep inside the wound. Outside skin heals over the underlying tissue keeping the infection trapped inside. Puncture wounds need to be kept clean and encouraged to drain. Puncture wounds may also form abscesses. Evidence of a hoof abscess can cause a horse to be 3-legged lame and unable to put pressure on the injured site. The pain comes from inflammation in the wound. The site may have to be drained by your farrier/and or veterinarian. After the abscess has drained, antibiotics may be prescribed for infection. Incised wounds leave smooth and clean edges caused by sharp objects that have sliced the skin. Depending on where the wound is, it may be sutured, stapled, or will be left open. Lacerations often leave rough, jagged edges of skin with underlying tissue damage. Debriding (removing dead/and or dying tissue) these wounds is necessary to reduce the risk of infection under the skin. Some lacerations can be sutured, but others will have to heal while left open. Some wounds will need a drain tube to facilitate the healing process. Abrasions are non-penetrating wounds to the skin. They are usually minor and just need to be cleaned and disinfected. A topical ointment may be used. For emergency first aid when an injury occurs, first restrain and calm the horse. Move him to a secure location and assess his vital signs. A mild sedative may be needed to keep him calm. Cuts that occur on the coronet band or heel bulb are like head wounds in that they can bleed heavily. Any active bleeding can be controlled by applying direct pressure to the wound with a thick absorbent dressing. If the wound is not bleeding profusely, hosing the wound will help flush out debris and slow the blood flow. Cold water can also lessen pain and help reduce swelling. Sometimes an injury is not caught right away. Older cuts (more than 12 hours old) should still be examined. While suturing is not practical for older wounds, they still need to be treated. These cuts may have already begun forming “proud flesh,” which rapidly grows over the surface interfering with normal skin closure. Proud flesh, and large scabs covering deep wounds trap bacteria. These types of wounds take longer to heal from the inside. As with any wound, a treatment plan will be set dependent on the severity and location of the injury. JUNE 2021 • C & C PUBLISHING, INC. ©2021

Typically, wounds heal in 4 stages: The first stage involves inflammation at the site. Swelling causes pain. The second stage creates pus that helps to remove infection and debris. The site will need to be kept clean and covered. The third stage begins repair as the cells start to mobilize. This is when healing tissue starts to form at the base of the injury. The fourth stage is the new reconstruction of tissues. As the wound heals, the site begins shrinking. After the wound has been initially treated, it may need bandaging depending on the type of wound. There are usually 3-4 layers used in bandaging. The first layer that is in direct contact with the wound is usually non-sticking. This layer is followed by soft, thin gauze or an elastic cotton wrap. If the area needs extra protection, some form of batting such as cotton or cotton quilting is used. The 3rd layer is designed to hold the inner layers in place and for protection from the environment. This layer is usually some form of stretchy vet wrap or similar material. A horse may also be regulated to “stall rest” to avoid further injury. Wounds take time to heal and correct aftercare is essential to the success of any treatment plan. Dr. Joanna Bronson graduated from Michigan State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2000 at the top of her class. Following graduation, she worked as an intern at a large equine referral practice in Cleveland, Ohio specializing in lameness, surgery, and racetrack medicine. In 2005, she opened Bronson Veterinary Services in Coldwater, Michigan, a full-service equine, small animal hospital and surgical center.

Making Better Hay By Lisa Kiley | https://www.cashmans.com/ Hay Season is upon us. Did you know just how important hay is to the United States in terms of agricultural production? It is the 3rd most produced commodity, just behind corn and soybeans. At 130 million tons of hay produced annually, it is double the amount of wheat produced, which is 4th highest in production on the list. Hay really is at the heart of American agriculture and it is something that is produced both by commercial operations and in the backyard of the hobby farmer. It is a commonality between anyone who owns livestock; we need hay to keep our animals healthy and happy. Every hay season produces its own challenges due to weather and timing. John Ashworth, the National Sales Manager for International Stock Food, provided some great insight on how farmers can achieve a better quality more reliable hay crop utilizing a product called Hay Guard. “International Stock Food (ISF) is a family business, started in 1949 by JG Forrest. Originally catering mostly to the dairy industry, its roots were started in minerals and supplements. The original product, Silo Guard, was produced from mined sulfur, which had been used in the past to preserve meats and foods for human consumption. This led to the interest of ISF to use it as a preservative for forages.” John advised. “The family's 2nd generation moved to using lab created products which are more controlled, consistent, and have a higher potency which means that they require less product to be applied while retaining a food grade quality product” He continued, “Now the 3rd generation is running the business, which is based out of the Atlanta, Ggeorgia area.” The mission has always been clear, “Quality Animals Start with Quality Forage.” John stressed that Forage First means less supplemental products, “Comparative products are often sold out of much larger agriculture companies where preservatives are just a small part of what they do. ISF is clearly focused on forage preservatives and educating the customer on how to make the best quality forage. Forage is all we do.” So, what exactly is Hay Guard? John explained, “It's a preservative that uses Sulfites, which unlike Sulfates, are safe for animals and nontoxic.” By applying Hay Guard, it alters the moisture content in the hay itself preventing spore growth that leads to mold. John used the analogy of a three-legged stool to explain, “In order for the bacteria spores to grow, there has to be three things: moisture, a food source (the hay) and oxygen. But if you take one of those three ‘legs’ out of the equation, the spores can't grow. Sulfites are natural oxygen scavengers, so their application prevents the bacteria that leads to a whole host of problems from dusty, moldy bales that can cause respiratory issues and colic in horses, to the bales heating to a point causing spontaneous combustion that can lead to a fire.” Hay Guard not only prevents the hay from becoming moldy, John advised, “The sulfites reduce lignin in the hay. Lignin decreases the availability of nutrients in the hay, so even if the horses are eating the correct amount of forage, they are not getting what they need out of it. Treated hay, assuming it has been grown correctly and harvested at the appropriate time, is softer, more palatable and easier to digest.” This equates to a hay that is more nutritious and for growers, that also increases the value of the hay. Why is Hay Guard preferred over the use of Propionic Acid applications? “There are actually a few reasons,” John shared, “First, Propionic Acid has to be applied at a much higher rate so that it gets JUNE 2021 • C & C PUBLISHING, INC. ©2021

to each blade prior to baling. ”Hay Guard only needs 3-4lbs per ton, converts to sulfur dioxide and moves it through the bale so it requires much less product. “Producers using acid require application equipment and systems that can cost $5K-$10K while requiring continually reading moisture levels throughout the process.” Hay treated with Propionic Acid often smells bad creating a less palatable bale for many horses. While hobby hay farmers may have thought the use of a preservative like Hay Guard is something for the big commercial operations, John urges them to take another look at what they have to offer. “Because it allows the producer to bale hay when the moisture content is higher, it creates flexibility for the farmer,” he explained. “For a large operation, that can mean getting a few additional cuttings in, but there are also numerous ways it can assist a farmer short on time and help. If a farmer is working a fulltime job in town, Hay Guard can allow them to bale before or after work, when dew on the field may have prevented or delayed them from making hay.” In addition, there are much more affordable applicators, with smaller farms being able to get into a system for a fraction of the cost of other options. Finally, it's important to consider the weather that farmers have been contending with in the North East and many parts of the Midwest. John shared, “with the way the last several hay seasons have been, it's almost impossible to put up good quality hay without the assistance of a preservative. Mild winters and wet springs could put a complete halt on production, but Hay Guard allows for hay to be made at higher levels of moisture, up to 25%, while preserving the quality of the hay so that it meets the nutrition needs of the animals that consume it.” Cashmans Horse Equipment has proudly carried Hay Guard for several years and would be happy to work with you on a system that works for your hay production no matter what size the operation is. For those of you who buy hay and don't produce it, you can ask your local dealer if the hay has been treated with Hay Guard or other applications.

Great Horse Camping By Robert Eversole | www.TrailMeister.com Good horse camping is easy. Great Horse Camping requires a little more preparation. Let's discuss how to get the most out of your adventures. From what to look for in a campground, safe trailering to camp, and even why Love Letters are an important part of every camping trip! Planning for a Horse Camping Adventure in the Front Country (or anywhere!) Do your Homework – What type of adventure are you up for? In any camping environment, all you need is food, water, and shelter for horses and humans. Three things. That's it. How complicated you make fulfilling those needs is up to you. You can keep it simple by heading to a fully equipped resort or you can decide to rule the wilderness. There's a world of difference between setting up camp at a guest ranch with reserved stalls and parking complete with water and electric hookups for your truck and trailer, versus an outing that requires you to ride deep into a wilderness area with everything you need for survival on the back of your horse. Types of horse camps: · Guest Ranch, Resort, B&B – Glamping with all the bells and whistles · Established Campgrounds – Corrals are common, usually have restroom facilities, sometimes even shower houses. State Parks, etc. · Primitive Camp – Dispersed camping USFS/BLM areas · Wilderness Camping – Packing in The amount of preparation depends on the type of camp you plan on visiting. Guest ranches take care of everything from corrals to dining facilities. Dispersed camping in a National Forest means you'll need to be proficient with not only horse containment, but water, shelter, and everything else you'll need. It's best to start slow and work up to more involved adventures. With every trip keep notes on what you forgot and what you had, but didn't need. With each trip, you'll become more organized and find out what little things helped you feel more comfortable in camp and on the trail. Using a printable checklist helps. (You can find one at www.trailmeister.com/trail-rider-check-list/) After you've decided what type of adventure you want, now is the time to start asking questions. · What amenities are available? Are there corrals, restrooms, showers, water, etc.

JUNE 2021 • C & C PUBLISHING, INC. ©2021

· What is the parking like? Will my rig fit? · How many miles of trails? What types of trails (out and back or loops)? Terrain and footing? · Are reservations required? Where to make them? · Best times to visit? · What are the rules & restrictions for the area? Coggins Test, Health Certificates? Is weed free feed required? If certified weed-free feed is required, ask for a list of where to buy it. Are portable corrals allowed? Are dogs allowed? Fire restrictions? Bear restrictions? · Is it a multi-use area? Who will I meet on the trails and in camp? · Driving distance and quality of the roads? How long will it take to get there and can my truck and trailer make it? Once you've settled on your destination point it's time to start making sure that you AND your horses are ready for the trip. It's all good as long as nothing goes wrong. Are you preparing? Or are you just surviving? Food/Meal Planning: The average equine eats about 2% of body weight per day. An average horse weighs 1,000 lbs that foots out to about 20lbs of hay per horse, per day. How are you going to carry it? Pack your horse's usual rations. You may be tempted to "treat" your horse to prepare him for a rigorous day of riding. Resist that urge. Keep your horse's feed as close to normal as possible. Giving your horse foods that he's not used to can cause digestive troubles. If a specific type of feed (i.e. weed free) is required and it's different from what you normally feed at home, you'll want to change your horse's diet gradually prior to your trip. For example, if changing from grain and hay to a complete pelleted feed, or even from one kind of hay to another, do it well in advance so you don't put your horse at risk of colic or other potential health problems. Also, as much as they'll want to – don't allow horses to graze on green meadow grass if your horse is not accustomed to eating fresh forage at home. Colic is one thing you want to avoid especially when horse-camping, where the nearest Vet may be far away! Water: Water is the most vital of requirements. On average horses drink 10-15 gallons of water a day. That's a lot. Check in advance for availability of horse water. Inquire with the land manager or reputable online guide if water is available in a stream that flows all year long, or whether it's supplied. Some streams are seasonal, and pumps can break, so plan a back-up. There may be water for the horses, but is there portable water for you as well? If the H2O situation looks sketchy, you'll have to haul it, and at 8.3 pounds per gallon, hauling sufficient water can quickly become a challenge.

Shelter/Containment: This is where things can get interesting. Much like toddlers, our horses will get into mischief if allowed to wander unattended. A safe and secure method to keep them contained is imperative for a successful horse camping trip. If you're heading to a guest ranch or established horse camp with corrals, you shouldn't have too many worries. Just to be safe it's a good idea to take a few minutes and give the pony’s pen a good going-over before you put them in. And have an option in case the pens aren't up to snuff. For areas without corrals, you'll need to examine various ways to hold your horses. Versatile, inexpensive, effective, and safe when properly set up; for me, the highline is the gold standard. A good primer on how to set up a safe highline can be found online at: www.trailmeister.com/abetter-highline/ Another good equine containment option is portable corrals, either hard sided or electrical. Not all areas allow portable fencing so be sure to check with the land manager beforehand. If you plan on using electric fencing be sure to get your animals used to it first at home. Animals unused to electric fence have a tendency to rush through rather than back away from the white line of electric. But remember that the natives (deer, elk, moose, bear) will not have had the benefit of such training. Preparing for your Horse Camping Trip Once you've handled the basic questions of Where, When, Why, and What, it's time to start refining your skill sets to ensure that no matter what happens you'll enjoy a worry free outing. I start these preparations long before I load the trailer. In no particular order other than saving “love letters” for the end! · Conditioning: Is your horse ready for long days on the trail? You'll most likely be doing more riding than usual on your trip. You'll want to make sure to get him in condition for those long days on the trail. · Vet checks for horses: Is your horse medically fit for camping? Does he have all the required vaccinations? And the necessary paperwork for them? · First Aid Skills: Equine and Human – A good time for a primer on equine first aid is when the horse is getting his annual physical. Ask your vet to teach you how to check vitals such as pulse, temp, and respiration. You'll need to pass this info on to the vet if there should be a problem at camp.

· Communications: Most horse camps are far from reliable cell service. Do you have a way to communicate in an emergency? · Emergency Plan: Outline of where you're going, how long, who you're going with, when you're returning, and any medical conditions you and your riding buddies have. · Take a Trial Run: My first camping trip of the year is always in my own backyard. Setting up camp, putting the horses on the highline, trying to recall how to get the Coleman stove running after 8 months of inactivity. A practice camping trip at home is an excellent way to work the kinks out in a place where failure IS an option. · Love Letters: What do Love Notes have to do with Trail Riding and Horse Camping? Do the agencies that administer your riding areas know that horse owners are using the area? Without letting them know that equestrian activities are occurring, they may forget when it comes to dedicating time, effort, and money into maintaining horse trails, equine parking, and horse camping areas. I try to pen a quick note to the land manager of each area that we ride or camp so that they are aware of the equine users in the places they are responsible for. These notes are not complaint posts, but rather a “thank you” for making these trails open to equine use. In conversations with various recreation rangers from around the continent very few have received a thank you, as opposed to myriads of complaints. Positive reinforcement works. Or as coined by Benjamin Franklin in his 1744 publication of Poor Richard’s Almanack: “Tart words make no friends: a spoonful of honey will catch more flies than a gallon of Vinegar.” Send those love letters and post cards and help keep our equestrian trails open!

Classes for pleasure driving will be on tap along with Super Reinsmanship, driven dressage, cones, and an American Driving Society approved combined test. Lessons are available after competition each day.

Black Swamp members are invited to drive with the Western Reserve Carriage Assoc. June 13th at the beautiful Carlisle Reserve near LaGrange, OH. Several miles of stoned trails are very suitable for all types of vehicles (even antiques!). Trails go through woods, up a couple of hills, and through prairie areas. There will be ridden horses on the trails at times, meaning drivers should be courteous, slow down or stop to avoid scaring these horses. Many BSDC members will be traveling to Mt. Hope, OH, July 2-3 for the latest version of Horse Progress Days. Draft horses will be providing power for the latest horse-drawn farm equipment. Everything from pairs to hitches of 12 or more will be driven to demonstrate all types of machinery. A huge trade show will be found in the newer buildings on the Mt. Hope Auction grounds. Ideas for club drives are always welcome. Let one of the officers know if you have a place for a drive or if you would like to help host a drive. New members are always welcome, and you don't have to have a horse or drive a horse to be a member. BSDC also takes trips to interesting driving related places and holds several “no horse” events each year. Find us on Facebook!

BRIGHTON TRAIL RIDERS ASSOCIATION In our last column we took a few moments to welcome the arrival of spring. Well, that proved to be a tad premature. While we did have a few good days with temps in the 70's, that didn't last. We saw the temperatures drop significantly, endured some nights when they went below freezing, and the winds got pretty fierce at times. As this is being written, things are looking up and let's hope that spring has really arrived, followed closely by summer. We also reported last month that we had reluctantly made the decision to hold our Annual Meeting via Zoom. Our bylaws require that these meetings occur no later than May, and the aforementioned weather had us worried. Luckily, we revisited this issue and reminded ourselves that we trail riders are supposed to be tough and we can withstand some inclement weather. So, we JUNE 2021 • C & C PUBLISHING, INC. ©2021 (20)

decided to hold that event outside and as these words are being read, we will have held the meeting on May 27th. It will be at the home of one of our Board members on her spacious deck and adjoining yard and will feature food and beverages. The weather should be nice but if it isn't, so what! We also decided to hold our June event, which we call the “Open Ride, Picnic and Campout.” This will take place on June 26th-27th. We'll have to prepare the food for the picnic to comply with DNR guidelines which prohibit potlucks and communal servings. Instead, all the food needs to be wrapped in individual servings. Nevertheless, we'll manage just fine and hope that a lot of our members elect to camp. Recent inspections of the staging area, trails and camping sites reveal that our equestrian facilities are in good shape. We can't wait to see them start to fill up with trail riders! Everyone knows that our country and the world got hit hard with the Covid epidemic in early 2020. Here we are almost half way through 2021 and things still aren't back to normal. But we're inching closer to that goal and in our little neck of the woods, we are extremely grateful for this progress. BTRA has not been able to hold a hosted outdoor event since the fall of 2019, and now we're getting back at it. Hooray! As we say just about every month, all trail riders are welcome at Brighton. As you enjoy all of our attractions, remember that they are here because our organization, teamed with the DNR, has spent much time and yes, money, to make this one of the best equestrian recreational centers in Michigan. Mark Delaney, BTRA President

FORT CUSTER HORSE FRIENDS ASSOCIATION Hello Trail Riders! A BIG THANK YOU!! to all that attended our Spring Camp Out in May. It was a rousing success with 25+ campers and even more day riders and campers that came and left early. The weather was spectacular for Spring and the only rain was over Saturday evening. Friends enjoyed gathering around a campfire, trading stories about the last year and a riding season filled with hope for 2021. It was yet again another worthwhile fundraiser to keep our new campground funded and our trails maintained the best! We are looking forward to the Fall Equestrian Camp Out that will be held in September this year. Hopefully, things will be back to "normal" so our pancake breakfasts, potluck and auction fundraiser will be back on the camp out agenda! The trails are groomed, trees cleared and are ready for all the trail riding your hearts desire! The campground sites have been spruced up and gravel added to the parking pads for level rig parking. Our DNR has been wonderful in making sure those campers that reserve any of the 7 sites will in fact have horses. As at other equine camps, we are trying to ensure equine campers are safe and do not have to worry about "regular" campers with dogs, bikes, balls, etc. Any negative interaction with non-horse park users should be reported to the Park for documentation for safety issues and for future decisions with equine camps and trails. Our trail system is drawing a lot of riders as the word spreads of the beautiful trails with all of the creek crossings. You can help with all by joining FCHFA to ensure we have the funds to maintain all of our commitments to the Park. Visit www.fchfa.org for a calendar of events, ride/potlucks, workdays, pictures and membership info. Call Nancy at 269967-3613 for any questions. See you on the trails! Toni Strong, FCHFA Secretary

MICHIGAN TRAIL RIDERS ASSOCIATION The May Workbee in Luzerne included repair of Big Creek water crossing and watering spot between Luzerne boardwalk. Trails heading east and west of Luzerne are cleared (the winter wet snow has made for more than usual amounts of clearing). Our annual meeting and election results was also held. Four board members were unapposed and we have a new board member; welcome Julie Parliament! Plans for upcoming rides were discussed. The August family ride will be at Scheck’s trail camp and Goose creek trail camp; watch the website for dates and updates. A suggestion for an annual banquet at this ride was discussed and will be looked into. The September double cross ride and October color ride are planned. As the September rides starts at the north loop, discussion and update on where the Cheboyagan camp development is at. MTRA is meeting and working with the MDNR to make this happen, hopefully this year. MTRA is again sponsoring a virtual ride this June as our Shore to Shore ride was cancelled. This will be in progress with this printing as sign up was June 1st. It is a 30day challenge to ride 235 miles in the month of June. As of the work-bee and meeting time, 200 have already signed up. Trails are open and ready for riding, as are

many of the camps and are in use. We are all anxious to ride the trails in Michigan. We hope to see you on the trails this year!

PROUD LAKE TRAIL RIDERS ASSOC. Hello Everyone! We are very happy to report that we have added even more obstacles to our obstacle course. Please come out and give it a try! There is absolutely no charge, just enjoy. Proud Lake Trail Riders has been working diligently with the DNR to separate our trails from bikers. The park is completely committed to doing this and they are presently evaluating options and locations. Once the trails are separated, there will be signs up stating what are horse trails and what are bike trails. We have been working on this for the past several years and we are thrilled that the park is committed to making this happen. As of right now, the GPS maps have been submitted and we are moving forward. If you encounter bikers on the trails that are not giving the right-of-way to horses, please contact the DNR immediately. If you are able to get photos, please try to do so. Our first event of 2021 is scheduled for the weekend of June 18-20th. We will be having a cam pout and event ride. The ride will be a Murder Mystery theme. Camping is sold out for this event, but we have plenty of room for day riders. The ride is $5 per person. We will not be hosting our usual potluck at this event and lunch will not be included. Once again, all of the local parks have coordinated together so that we are not booking multiple events on same days. Our second ride/camp out of the season will be the ever popular Circle Ride with the Kensington Trail Riders on September 24-26th. If you would like to join our email list, please email me at efrusy@yahoo.com and also remember to like us on Facebook! Stay safe and keep riding!

Horse Association & Trail Riders News WESTERN DRESSAGE ASSOCIATION OF MICHIGAN, continued Western Dressage and we wish your journey be a wonderful and enjoyable one. WDAA News: WDAA just released its new training scale and is calling it a “training wheel.” The WDAA training wheel diagram depicts the training basics needed to reach the ultimate goal of lightness and thoroughness with harmony and serves as a guide to riders to evaluate and improve their Western Dressage Training. The hub of the wheel is the ultimate goal. The spokes represent the basic elements of training and connect to the hub. The rim holds all elements of the training together and represents the rider who is responsible for ensuring that all the spokes of the wheel are developed equally. For more information visit the WDAA website. Also new for junior members is the free Ride a Test: https://wdaa.memberclicks. net/wdaa-online-ride-a-test-program. Finally, don't forget the Western Dressage World Championship Show scheduled for September 29 to Oct 3, 2021. Hope to see you there!

Thank you for your support. Be safe, have fun, enjoy your equine partner, and exercise the act of kindness to all. Until next time, Suzanne Morisse, President of WDAMI

Something to think about this month: Transitions play a key factor in training the horse. We have transitions between the paces, within the paces, curved lines and straight lines, going from one rein to the other rein, between larger and smaller circles (or the other way around), between single track to lateral movements, between lateral movements, sitting trot and rising trot, left bend to right bend and right bend to left bend, and transition between balance over the left pair of legs and the balance over the right pair of legs which is necessary for bend, zigzag half passes and flying changes. We have one more and that is transition between forehand balance, level balance, and uphill balance and – who knows – maybe I left a few out. WDAMI is looking for sponsors for our yearend awards and educational events. If you would like to help by sponsoring or by helping us to find sponsors, please contact us by email at inforwdami@gmail.com. If you would like to volunteer or offer other services we need, please contact us. We can always use the help. Please don't forget to renew your 2021 membership.

Financing: Starting The Loan Process GreenStone Farm Credit Serv. | https://www.greenstonefcs.com/ Ready to apply for a loan, but you're not sure where to begin? Whether you are interested in financing recreational land or a country home, the first step is submitting a loan application. Here’s the when, how, and why of securing financing to fund your next big step. Loan applications are available in person from the lender, or you can often submit one online. If you can state your purchase goals ahead of time and how you intend to use the property, this will help your lender provide options for your individual needs and goals. A good first step is to start by getting pre-qualified for a loan to help identify a budget for your property search. Once you select the property you’re interested in buying, you can use that address to move forward with the actual loan application. Applying for a loan requires documentation, and here are items you commonly need to provide to your lender: · Signed application · Driver's License or Photo ID · Purchase agreement or land contract, or a recent mortgage statement if refinancing · 2 years of W2s and/or 1099s · 30 days of recent pay stubs · 2 years of business and personal tax returns, if you have any self-employed income · Most recent liquid asset account statements (checking, savings, retirement, etc.) If you are retired, or your income is from pension or social security, then you may need to provide a current year payment award letter for Social Security, or a recent payment statement for your pension. Any legally documented income showing a history and a probability for continuation can also usually be used as income sources. Often, if you're 58.5 years or older, your nest egg income can be included, based on an annual calculation of 5% of your retirement account. For those who are self-employed, lenders may require two years of documented income for this money to be included in the application review. In addition, income from child support or alimony can be considered as long as the income is verifiable. For overtime, commission, or bonus income, these funds could be taken into account if you can provide a two-year history of this type of income. Common country living loan options include: · Country home mortgage – rural homes, vacant land, small farms · Home construction – starting from scratch · Home site vacant land – the right vacant land for your needs · Recreational land – place to hunt, fish, hike or simply enjoy time outdoors with family and friends As you gather the information, don't hesitate to consult with your loan officer to help make the process of securing financing to achieve your goals as simple as possible. Whether you’re a firsttime loan applicant, or you’ve been through the process before, you’re on your way to making your personal dreams a reality. To learn more about these financing options and get started with an online loan request, please visit: https://www.greenstonefcs.com/ JUNE 2021 • C & C PUBLISHING, INC. ©2021

GreenStone Farm Credit Services specializes in residential and country home loans, and provides lending products for the purchase, improvement, construction or refinance of residences along with financing future home sites and recreational land.

A Successful Equine Business By Lisa Skylis | skylisli@msu.edu Re-Visit Your Business Plan Regardless of whether you're just starting out or expanding your services, every equine business should have a solid business plan. Ideally, you would have created your business plan before launching your business – although it's better late than never! Essentially, this business plan will become your roadmap to achievement and should summarize your business's past, current state, and future goals. Although it may seem intimidating, a thorough business plan is the key to convincing yourself and possible investors that you're serious about success! Unfortunately, not every business is destined to succeed, and a great deal will fail within the first couple years. The reasons for failure could include everything from poor financial planning to lack of demand to natural disaster. Many of these potentially businesskilling elements are addressed in your business plan. Some of the categories you should include in your plan are as follows: · Summary: Summarize your business opportunity in a few sentences. For an IRS-worthy appearance, add a cover page and a table of contents. · Business Concept: What is the concept of your business, indepth? Include details on your products or services sold, the structure of your business, your mission statement, your future goals, and any research you've done so far. · Environment: What factors could threaten your business' viability? Explain the changes in your economy, work environment, part of the equine industry, etc. that could become challenging for your business. · Management: Are you capable to run this business? Describe your management style, who is a part of your leadership team, and staff management policies. · Marketing, Audience, and Advertising: Who will buy your product or service and how will they learn of it? Show your market's current and projected demand, the demographics of your audience, analysis of any competition, and your marketing and advertising strategy. · Operations: How will you supply your product or service to your customers? Detail your facility requirements, operations plan, the materials or inputs you need to produce, schedule of production, and any regulations/requirements to consider. · Finances: How will your business make money? Demonstrate the financial value of your business with documents about your budget, pricing of your product, your financial goals, financial analysis, economic and other risk assessment, contingency plans, etc. · Execution: How will you execute this business plan? Show how you plan to implement your business plan, your time-line, and any supporting documents. Now organized for any outcome, there are a few basic guidelines to follow when filling out the details of your business plan. Whether you're creating your first or updating your last, these are some tips for when you're writing your equine business plan: · Write in simple, short sentences that will be easily understood by anyone reading it. JUNE 2021 • C & C PUBLISHING, INC. ©2021

· Value quality of your plan over length of your plan. · Include facts, figures, and research about your equine business. · Have an expert on that corner of the equine industry review your plan for flaws in logic, grammar, or organization. Thanks to your business plan, you now have a comprehensive document to show the horse industry that you mean business! Keep updating your plan as your business expands and changes to stay one step ahead of your competitors. Update Your Marketing Strategy Without a proper marketing strategy, your equine business may struggle to stay afloat during these challenging economic times. Marketing is an ongoing process where a business owner defines their product, discovers their audience through design, research, and analysis. If you don't understand what you're selling or who you're selling to, how can your business expect to thrive? One simple slogan to remember when developing your marketing strategy is the four p's: product, place, price, and promotion. What are you selling specifically? In many instances, you might be selling more than you think! For instance, your small boarding stable might not just be selling your customer a place for them to board their aging horse. You might also be selling your customer resources to keep their horse comfortable as they age such as a connection to a massage therapist, opportunities to learn a new skill with their horse by practicing liberty work in your heated indoor arena with training tools, and amenities like custom stall mats to cushion their horse's arthritic knees. Consult your business plan, be sure to consider the specifics of what you're offering to your customer. Although fairly straightforward, both the place and the price of your product will require you to know your audience. Are they primarily middle-aged new-to-dressage enthusiasts with expendable income or college-aged horse owners looking to board on a budget? The more you know about your target audience, the easier it will be to determine the setting and price of your product. Once you've discovered that, you're ready to promote your equine business using a variety advertising methods. Increase Your Advertising Scope With their demographic in mind, most equine businesses already promote their product using advertising techniques. Technically a step of marketing, advertising is the specific way you communicate your businesses' product or service to your audience. While a bus(26) WWW.SADDLEUPMAG.COM


should include social media platforms like Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. For instance, think of an equine rescue that's largely volunteer-run. Ask a couple social media-savvy volunteers to post weekly horse photos on Instagram or farm updates on Facebook. This will keep your current audience engaged while increasing the reach of your advertising. Adapting to the modern marketplace is critical to your businesses' success and this may include utilizing social media.

iness card might have worked wonders in the past, nowadays the best advertising campaigns use multiple media platforms to spread word of their business far and wide. To increase your audience's awareness of your business, here are a few ways you might want to advance your advertising strategy: · Learn what strategies other businesses similar to yours are using. If you sell custom rope halters and lead ropes, where do you see other successful retailers advertising? Maybe because the other business placed an ad in a breed association's magazine and showbill, they’ve had more customers visit their booth at the next major horse show. Check for niche publications in your state that focus on a specific targeted market. Pay attention to how other equine businesses advertise. · Consider creating a website for your product or service. A website is a fantastic way to show your audience the finer details of your business. For those who enjoy to DIY, platforms like Wix, Squarespace, GoDaddy, and Weebly make designing a website a possibility. Although most aren't free, they offer hundreds of templates for you to choose from and you can even add methods to process payment on your website. For anyone not very confident in their online abilities, hiring a professional web designer might be the right option for you. However you choose to go about it, creating a professional looking website is a great idea to bolster your equine business.

· Use client testimonials to encourage new business. Ask your current clients to write a few words on their experiences with your business and post the reviews on your business's Facebook page, website, or elsewhere. Horse people tend to rely heavily on word-of-mouth and the reviews from their fellow horse-loving friends. Even if you decide not to use the testimonial, it will provide valuable feedback on your customer's satisfaction. Lisa Skylis graduated from Michigan State University with a degree in Animal Science.

Equestrians Applying for Jobs By Paula Stevens | MSU Horse Management Program Student Someone posted a question in a group I'm in, directed towards up and coming equestrians, on why they aren't jumping at job opportunities in the horse industry. Plenty of places are hiring for grooms, stall cleaners, exercisers and even assistant trainers, but not many young adults are jumping at those positions. The individual wanted to know why this seemed to be the growing case and what could barn and business owners do to change it. Likewise, it was also asked why some students and young adults didn't stick around for very long at some of the barns they were working at or had worked at in the past. This sparked a discussion amongst students and barn owners and other individuals, and the top answers seemed to have to do with pay, level of appreciation shown, and communication. “Communication is the key to success” is something one of the veterinarians at the barn I'm at now likes to say whenever he gets the chance. Without communication amongst all members of the team, there cannot be any true success. It should not matter what position or how long you've been there, there should be clear communication amongst everyone. Each individual should know what their role is and how to do their job, how they're doing and what changes are happening, when they happen. Vague answers get you nowhere and no answer prevents any sort of progress from being made by anyone. A team cannot function efficiently or well if nobody chooses to communicate with anyone and it won't take long for that environment to start to crumble. It becomes increasingly frustrating when working in an environment where communication is poor or lacking and eventually you start to look for a job elsewhere where communication is better. Quite a few of the replies to the post had to do with the fact that their barns and jobs didn't communicate well with them and they got fed up and went to work elsewhere, understandably. Appreciation was the next reason, with individuals stating that they didn't want to work where they weren't appreciated for their efforts. Can you blame them? There's no such thing as a “part time” job when it comes to working in the horse industry. Just because you might not be scheduled to work a twelve hour shift doesn't mean you won't still wind up spending all day working on something at the barn. Horses never seem to follow our plans and usually if it can go wrong, it will and that's not always something that can be taken care of in a pinch. Any type of work in the horse industry is usually hard and exhausting, and when we choose to go the extra mile or even if we don't, we just want to know our employers and barn owners appreciate what we do. Communicating (funny how appreciation and communication seem to go along with one another) your appreciation for someone's work or job well done seems like a minute thing, but it really does go a long way. It shows us, the workers, that what we do is worthwhile on the days when it seems like a waste of time and provides the motivation to attack another day, even when exhausted. People who feel appreciated tend to want to go the extra mile and do the extra work even if it means being a little more tired the following day. A barn or employer that spends more time treating you poorly, overlooking your efforts and not acknowledging when you do extra is one who will probably be constantly looking for employees. Equestrians are critical enough as is, a simple “good job” can go a long way. Pay was the next popular thing that was commented and discussed, because let's be honest, horses and the horse lifestyle are JUNE 2021 • C & C PUBLISHING, INC. ©2021

expensive. Being able to afford to live when trying to make horses your life is not an easy thing to do. While it is understandable that not every barn can afford to pay their employees extravagant amounts, paying them consistently is something that should happen regardless of what the job is. Some people replied that you shouldn't be in the horse industry for the money, but instead for your passion and love for horses. While I think you should definitely be passionate about what you do, especially in the horse industry, passion does not pay the bills and neither does “experience. “ It isn't fair to dump a lot of hard work and long hours on your employees and then not pay them enough to even fill up their gas tank let alone not paying them consistently. While experience and lessons and working off board are all nice little bonuses, solid and steady pay is a lot more desirable. If you're not able to offer that, then be understanding when your employees need to work fewer days and hours to work another job elsewhere so that they can afford to survive. It is not unreasonable for individuals to expect decent pay for all they have to do on a horse farm, it is unreasonable to expect them to work for free or almost free based solely on “If you're really passionate, you won't mind doing this.” If a barn or any job for that matter is constantly having to replace employees multiple times each year, then it is time for management to take a step back and reevaluate how they run and do things. The common denominator at that point is the barn and their management or lack thereof. No person is going to want to stay where they aren't communicated with, treated fairly or don't feel appreciated, especially at a low pay rate. Often it seems that the “barn rats” get taken for granted and walked all over because their love for the horses and industry clouds their judgement. Nobody should be allowed to make you feel inferior or like you don't matter. At the end of the day, while reaching your goals as a horseman is important, your mental health and overall well-being is more important. If you aren't growing in that environment and if you have to question whether or not you're valued or appreciated, it may be time to look for a job elsewhere. The goal is to grow as a person and move up in the industry, not stay in the same spot, constantly being squashed down by those around you. As someone who is trying to make it in this industry, I can tell you that I do not want to be in an environment where I won't be able to grow as a horseman and person. I want consistent pay, to know that I'm appreciated for all I do and straightforward communication at all times. So what then can barns and employers do to either keep employees (50) WWW.SADDLEUPMAG.COM


or gain employees? From a student and up and coming horsewomans’ perspective: they can have clear communication and realistic expectations with those who work for them. While we need to put forth an honest effort for those we work for, don't expect us to work like a slave for lousy pay and long hours. Don't expect us to work like a slave period, this work is exhausting as it is, and we need just as much time to recuperate as the next person. Make sure your employees know you appreciate all they do. This doesn't mean constantly praising and complimenting them, but the occasional “thank you” and “well done” can go a long way. Don't show favoritism to one employee over another, that gets noticed quickly and often times it isn't taken too well. Hierarchy is a thing that should be established and promoted, but no one employee should be treated better than the others. Pay them consistently. No jumping around or going weeks at a time without paying them; if you can't afford to pay them that week, then be up front about it and offer to pay them some other way or give them that time off and cover it yourselves. No job or person is perfect and every place you'll work and person you'll meet will have their quirks. At the end of the day, it's about finding the right environment for you and the right people to fill that environment. Set your standards and don't settle for anything less. Go somewhere where you'll be able to learn and grow and set up your space as somewhere where people can learn and grow and want to be. Burnout is a real thing when working in the horse industry. Some barn owners and trainers seem to take advantage of their young workers, whether they realize it or not, and dump more work and responsibilities on them than they can handle. When those employees voice that they're tired or stressed or overworked sometimes it gets blown off by the barn owners as whining or

needing to toughen up. No teen or worker is going to want to stay where they are worked into the ground. Be aware of your employees' mental and physical health and likewise, employees be aware of your mental and physical health. Set boundaries and enforce them and be prepared to walk away from that job if need be. I have no problem working long hours and getting little sleep if I feel like I'm in an environment where I'm appreciated and I can grow. It is when I work those long and extra hours and I don't feel valued and I don’t have opportunity for growth that I have a problem. There are a lot of factors that go into why fewer young adults and teenagers are willing to step up and work at a barn, and why barns have a hard time maintaining employees without having to constantly look to hire new ones. As someone who would be looking for the job, communicating and appreciation and pay are my biggest factors. For the right environment, as long as I'm appreciated, communicated with and provided an opportunity to grow, I'd be fine with less pay. If I work for you for an extended period of time though, and you cannot even communicate with me and give straightforward answers or let me know everything I've done is appreciated, I am less likely to want to continue working for you and more likely to start job hunting elsewhere.

Safe Horse Travel

infection that can result in quarantine restrictions at competitive events,” Whitehouse shared. Imagine traveling all those hours and miles only to open the trailer door and be met with an injured or otherwise unhealthy horse? Take the time to train your horses to load and unload safely, stop frequently to assess their health, nourish them appropriately on long trips, and avoid mixing with other horses as much as possible both during and following transport to minimize biosecurity issues. Strategic supplementation comes into play when managing the nutrition of finicky travelers. For those horses prone to worry, an anti-ulcer supplement might be warranted. Begin the supplement a couple days prior to departure and feed throughout the entire trip. In addition, consider offering high-quality omega-3 fatty acids to the diet. The natural anti-inflammatory effects provide proven benefits to respiratory health, according to Whitehouse. Kentucky Equine Research is an international equine nutrition, research, and consultation company serving horse owners and the feed industry. The company’s goals are to advance the industry’s knowledge of equine nutrition and exercise physiology, apply that knowledge to produce healthier, more athletic horses, and support the nutritional care of all horses throughout their life. KER was founded in 1988 when Joe Pagan, Ph.D., realized that information generated from research was not disseminated to the ones who needed it most: feed manufacturers and horse owners. Filling that void has been a priority for the company. For more info visit: www.ker.com

By Kentucky Equine Research Staff | www.ker.com Competitive horses travel extensively during their careers. Consider, for example, the miles traveled by horses involved in Fédération Equestre Internationale events held throughout the world. Transport is not restricted to the elite, as horses of all skill sets must travel to participate in competitions and activities. While transport of horses is an everyday occurrence, welfare concerns may arise if horses become stressed during transit. As stress intensifies, health and behavioral issues could ensue. “Recognizing our role in compromising equine welfare during transport must be paramount to decrease the incidence of injury, disease, and biosecurity issues,” said Catherine Whitehouse, M.S., a Kentucky Equine Research advisor. Injuries commonly occur during transport. Some are obvious such as head or leg wounds, but others are less noticeable, like deep bruising of muscles and other tissues. Further, injuries during loading and, less frequently, unloading contribute to stress. In one survey, 4% of horses injured while loading, transit, or unloading required humane euthanasia. Aside from injuries, respiratory disease, especially pneumonia, poses another major concern. Continually monitoring a horse's temperature on arrival and for a couple of days afterward could identify horses with subclinical pneumonia. Prompt treatment may diminish the severity of disease. “Studies also show that stress due to transport may also cause shedding of equine herpesviruses, a highly contagious respiratory JUNE 2021 • C & C PUBLISHING, INC. ©2021 (51)

Say Goodbye To Horse Flies By Valley Vet Supply | https://www.valleyvet.com/ Is a horse fly biting into your barn time? While enjoying a ride with your horse on a perfect, sunny day, you sink into the saddle in pure relaxation. Then suddenly, a horse fly lands on your horse’s rear end. He swishes his tail and the tranquility of just moments ago is halted as your horse bucks mid-air to rid the biting pest. Creating a completely fly-free barn for you and your horse, especially during the middle of summer, can seem like mission impossible. Flies can be relentless! However, there are six simple strategies you can implement to reduce the fly and insect population at your horse barn. Control their wicked, winged ways with these top tips. 1. Proactively remove manure – Remove manure and wet bedding daily to keep horse stalls clean, reduce fly-attracting odors and eliminate the warm, moist environ-ment that flies often use to lay eggs and as a food source. Regularly remove manure piles off-site from pastures. You also can spread or rake manure over fields and large paddocks to help dry them out to create a less-ideal environment for egg-laying flies. 2. Hang fly traps and fly tape – Use horse fly traps to lure flies away from the barn. Hang traps away from the barn, so that horseflies are lured away from the barn and your horses. Hang the traps at least four feet above the ground and follow the manufacturer’s directions for placement. To catch flies inside the barn, hang strips of fly tape from higher locations like ceilings or rafters. 3. Install indoor fans – Flies can be easily deterred by using ceiling and portable fans, as circulating air makes it difficult for the flies to travel and land. Angling a livestock fan or barn fan over your horse’s stall can help prevent flies from landing on your horse. Ensure that fans and power cords are specifically designed for agricultural use to reduce fire risk, and keep them safely out of a horse’s reach. 4. Maintain a tidy barn – Remove any dropped grain, equine supplements or medications from stalls and feed room areas. Empty and scrub feed tubs and water buckets regularly. Make sure all garbage cans inside or near your barn have tightfitting lids to prevent flies from accessing the trash as a food source. Regularly remove garbage from trash cans and clean them to remove residue and unpleasant aromas. 5. Use premise and fly sprays – Use a premise spray to quickly knock down adult flies and other barn-residing insects, as well as help deter new ones from entering the area. Some on-horse fly sprays double as a premise spray, allowing you to use them in areas of your barn to kill and repel gathering flies. Fly spray for horses offers a quick and easy solution for protection against flies. Ensure your horse is clean so that the spray sticks to the hair, not to dirt or mud, and make sure to cover every part of the horse’s body evenly. Start applying fly spray slowly and low on the legs, as some horses may at first be fearful of the noise. To prevent flies from your horse’s face and ears, apply fly spray to a cloth and then wipe it onto the areas, carefully, to avoid the eyes. JUNE 2021 • C & C PUBLISHING, INC. ©2021

6. Ensure protection through fly gear – Fly gear offers more than just protection against flies; it also offers UV protection for horses. Some brands of sheets and masks will block more than 70 percent of harmful UV rays. A wide variety of fly protection gear is available to keep horses safe from a fly’s harmful and painful bite, such as a fly sheet, fly mask and fly boots. Check fly masks, blankets and boots regularly to make sure that they are fitting correctly and not rubbing or causing any soreness.

MEET THE IRISH COB HORSE The Irish Cob horse is referred to worldwide by many different names such as Gypsy Cob, Gypsy Horse, Gypsy Vanner and Irish Tinker. Robust, dignified, and magnificent, these creatures are the epitome of beauty and grace. The wonderful Irish Cob is a real head-turner, combining Thoroughbred, Irish Draught, and Connemara horses. The long contrasting mane and tail and the feathering on the legs make them a stunning animal. Irish Cob horses have a very confident trot and steady gait, they’re smaller than other draft horses. Originally they were bred for light farm work, but they’re mainly revered for their good looks and modest personalities today. For hundreds of years these sturdy, hardworking horses pulled wagons and carts throughout Ireland, Britain and Europe. The breed adapted to be strong and versatile. Irish Cobs are expensive horses, a few horse for sale sites online The Irish Cob (Gypsy Horse) offer foals for $4,000-$5,000 and fully trained horses can sell for was bred by the Romanichal above and beyond $20,000. Of course, certain factors can Travellers of Great Britain to influence the price, such as breeding, training, and age. pull the Vardoes in which they lived and traveled. Romanichal Travellers arrived in the British Isles around 1500 AD, but they did not begin to live in vardoes (a traditional horse-drawn wagon) until around 1850. Prior to that, they traveled in tilted carts or on foot, slept either under or in these carts or in small tents.

PALM PARTNERSHIP TRAINING™

Beat Fear with Proper Rider Form By Lynn Palm | http://www.lynnpalm.com/ It is only natural for a rider to feel fear at some point in her riding years. Usually that fear is based on the concern for being out of control of the horse and coming out of the saddle. If this has ever been an issue for you while pursuing Western Dressage, or at any time during your riding endeavors, you'll be encouraged to know that one of the best ways to stay in control of the horse and stay in the saddle is through proper rider form and balance. Proper form is how the rider positions her body to follow her horse's movement at all times without interfering with the horse's movements and reactions. It is important for the rider to learn proper form and balance, and proper function of her form. Proper form lets the rider: 1. Achieve a state of balance that allows her to feel relaxed and in command of her body. Only when she feels in command of her own body can she feel in command of her horse. 2. Use the parts of her body to communicate at will with her horse. This is critical to riding because without the ability to clearly communicate with the horse, the rider cannot transmit her orders to him. Also, the horse cannot understand the rider's requests and respond well to them. To achieve proper form, a rider must understand the proper positioning and function of each part of her body. I see many riding problems rooted in incorrect rider form. Even experienced, confident riders can benefit from improving the basics. The Importance of the Rider's Upper Body Position Picture yourself mounted on a horse. The position of your head and eyes, and your thoughts and facial expression are all important to how well you function as a rider. Your head should be relaxed and coming straight out of your neck. Your chin should be level and not tipped up or dropped to the chest. Your eyes and your “eye contact” are one of the most important elements of riding. Your eyes should be looking straight ahead at least ten to twelve feet beyond the horse. This helps keep your head aligned. More importantly, this type of eye contact opens up your peripheral vision to 180 degrees, letting you see from the front of the horse to his sides. Because you are looking up, you see where you are going. You have control and time to think about possible upcoming problems. You can react and properly time the application of your aids to ask your horse to do something. It is instinctive to want to look at your horse to control him. However, if you do this, your horse will have control of you; which will only add to your fear. When you are in control, you can overcome your fear! The key to improving your riding form is looking up and ahead with your eyes. If you are looking ahead, with a confident look and relaxed face, you will align your back straight with your shoulders square and down. This enables you to stay straight and better absorb the horse's movement which keeps you more secure in the saddle. In return, your horse will move more freely and responsively because you are moving with him. If you look down, you will cause your back to round and shoulder to hunch up and yours arms to tighten up. Your horse will feel this, and he may stiffen his back and his gait in reaction to your incorrect JUNE 2021 • C & C PUBLISHING, INC. ©2021

form. It will be harder for you to follow his movement, and you will feel less secure in the saddle. The hardest thing to teach a rider is not to look down. It is the easiest way, however, to get yourself out of balance! Start today to ride with your eyes looking up and in front of your horse to stay in control, and you will be on your way to conquering your fear!

From The Starting Gate INDIANA THOROUGHBRED HORSE RACING NEWS Written by Megan Arszman | Indiana Thoroughbred Alliance

Treasure of the Midwest Media Project Highlights Indiana’s Thoroughbred Industry It’s time for the little guy to be in the spotlight, and that’s exactly what Champions of the Track is looking to do with their new multimedia project titled “Treasure of the Midwest.” Champions of the Track is a digital media company based in Indiana with the sole purpose to promote horse racing around the world. With a strong love of the sport, the small team brings an “outsider’s perspective” to the sport, hoping to encourage more “outsiders” to fall in love right along with them. Treasure of the Midwest is a partnership between Champions of the Track, the Indiana Thoroughbred Alliance, Indiana Horsemen’s Benevolent and Protective Association, and Indiana Grand Racing & Casino to promote the breeding and racing of Thoroughbred horses in Indiana. The project will consist of a YouTube series showcasing some of the state’s farms and horsemen, as well as written stories of Indiana-bred horses. The three-person team is currently visiting farms and Indiana Grand to gather stories and share the enthusiasm. “Indiana offers such a large financial benefit to breeders, stallion owners and racehorse owners who choose to participate in the Indiana Thoroughbred Breed Development Program,” says Kaeli Bartholomew, owner and creative director for Champions of the Track. “Indiana’s horse racing industry is a well-kept secret that we want to spread nationwide.” One of the first Indiana farms featured was Springcliff Farm, owned by Christine Cagle in Martinsville, Indiana. In 2021, alone, Springcliff has foaled 50 future racehorses. The farm was originally established in 1864 by the Thomas family. The beautiful farm is adorned with red barns and several lush, green pastures dotted with healthy and happy broodmares and foals. “I just love what I do, even with the long hours during foaling season,” says Cagle. “Indiana doesn’t get as much credit for its racing program as we should. We’re always growing. In fact, I have breeders from as far as across the globe sending their mares here to foal and be part of the program. “Having this multimedia push from Kaeli and Champions of the Track will be such a help for the little breeders, owners and horsemen who maybe can’t afford their own marketing plans,” Cagle continues. “It was a no-brainer for us to participate and to support this endeavor.” Horses such as the beautiful gray filly, Piedi Bianchi, are also part of the highlights. Indiana-bred Piedi Bianchi stormed on the racing scene as a 2-year-old racing in California. She finished in the top five in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies in 2017 and has sense raced from California to Indiana to Florida, earning more than $610,000 in lifetime earnings for her owners. Veteran JUNE 2021 • C & C PUBLISHING, INC. ©2021

supporters of the Indiana program, Deann and Greg Baer, DVM, bred the super filly and have been excited to follow her progress. “It’s been a lot of fun, racing this filly,” owner Jay Oringer told Bartholomew. “It’s exciting for my whole family and group of friends in Queens, New York, to follow her. She has a lot of fans!” More information can be found on the Champions of the Track website at: https://www.champsofthetrack.com/ and on their social media platforms.
