2013 HORSE CALL GRANTS Zoetis to Grant Up to $50,000 in grant funding available for equine economic research Zoetis is accepting research proposals for the 2013 Horse Call grant program, which promotes excellence in veterinary economic research and education. Zoetis will help fund one or more individuals through a grant of up to $50,000 for innovative, clinically relevant research proposals that determine the economic impact of equine encephalitic, parasitic, respiratory or other infectious diseases or the impact of preventing these diseases. Another area this grant will support is determining the economic impact of practice management business practices that emphasize prevention of equine infectious or parasitic diseases or prevention of horserelated injuries to clients, technicians or veterinarians of these practices. “We believe that the most productive way to advance veterinary research will be through an open model of discovery. There is a real economic value imposed on horse owners when their horse becomes sick and a real value when disease is prevented from occurring. We would like to help (24)

establish what the intrinsic value is when this is done and to determine how a practice achieves this,” said Dr. Rob H o l l a n d , d i r e c t o r, Z o e t i s Outcomes Research. “This collaboration is grounded in Zoetis's mission to continuously improve the health and care of animals worldwide and our commitment to advance veterinary science and education.” Applications must be submitted by Oct. 31, 2013. All applicants must be in good standing in their professional organization, and research must be conducted within the United States. A research committee will review the applications and will notify the selected recipient or recipients by Dec. 1, 2013. “By focusing on the economic aspect of equine care, we're hoping this call for collaborative research will help set a new standard in equine research,” said Sabina Gasper, senior director of Zoetis Outcomes Research. “This is one of many types of partnerships we're exploring at Zoetis, and we hope working with partners we will not only advance science but help to promote excellence in veterinary economic research.” For more about the 2013 Horse Call grant program and to obtain an application, contact horsecall@zoetis.com.

education in America. Marilyn's passion for judging, personal integrity, and leadership have positively impacted USDF's judge education program, USDF's education mission, and the development of consistent and correct dressage education for all. USDF President George Williams said, “In her quiet unassuming way, Marilyn Heath oversaw the USDF “L” Program with a diligence and expertise that ensured it remained one of the best judges' training programs in the world.” For more information about the Lifetime Achievement Award and the Roemer Foundation/ USDF Hall of Fame, visit the USDF website, or contact the USDF at halloffame@usdf.org.

2013 USDF LIFETIME AWARD The United States Dressage Federation (USDF) is pleased to announce that Marilyn Heath will be presented with the 2013 Lifetime Achievement Award at the Salute Gala & Annual Awards Banquet on December 7, 2013, during the Adequan/USDF Annual Convention in Lexington, KY. Award winners are those who have shown a lifetime of dedication to USDF through volunteering, and developing programs, projects, and committees that have contributed to USDF's mission. They also have a long history of membership in USDF. Marilyn Heath, of Naples, FL, has been a long and faithful volunteer to USDF through her dedication to judge education and involvement with USDF's “L” Education Program and the Delaware Valley Combined Training Association (DVCTA). After becoming a USEF “S” Judge in 1989, Marilyn could have worked towards becoming an FEI dressage judge. She chose, instead, to focus on judge education and became an “L” faculty member in 1992. As the co-chair and chair of the “L” Education Program, Marilyn exhibited strong leadership in updating the program and its materials, promoting consistency among other judge education programs, and providing accessibility to judge education to a wider audience. The DVCTA has also recognized her devotion to the sport, by creating the Marilyn O. Heath Judges Education Fund, in honor of her enthusiastic commitment to improving dressage judging

2013 U.S. DRESSAGE FINALS Riders Dream Big as Regional Qualifying Gets Underway for Inaugural US Dressage Finals Presented By Adequan® Excitement is sweeping the nation as the first round of Great A m e r i c a n / U S D F Re g i o n a l Championship dressage competitions gets underway this weekend in five regions across the country. But this year it's not just blue ribbons on the line: for the very first time, horses and riders competing in the Regional Championships will have an opportunity to qualify for the US Dressage Finals presented by Adequan ® , a national head-to-head competition showcasing adult amateur and open riders from Training Level to Grand Prix. The inaugural US Dressage Finals will be held November 7 10, 2013 at the picturesque K e n t u c k y H o r s e Pa r k i n Lexington, Kentucky. For the first (25)

time in history, riders from across the country at all levels of performance will be invited to compete over the same hallowed ground where international champions have been crowned.. "The Kentucky Horse Park is one of the finest equestrian facilities in the world," notes George Williams, President of the United States Dressage Federation (USDF). "And I couldn't be more thrilled that our mission to provide a national spotlight for riders at all levels, especially adult amateurs, will now be realized there. This will be their moment to shine." So far, more than 1,200 declarations have been received from riders seeking to qualify for what may be the chance of a lifetime to compete on the national stage and win fantastic prizes, bragging rights, and more than $50,000 in prize money. Riders in USDF Regions 2, 5, 6, 7, and 8 competed in late September to earn top marks and be eligible for a possible invitation to the Finals; they will be followed by Regions 3 and 4 over the weekend of October 11 13 and concluding with Regions 1 and 9 on October 17 - 20. For riders who have submitted a declaration to compete at the Finals, their next step on the road to Lexington will be the nomination phase, as competitors who earn required scores and/or placings at their respective regional championships will have 48 hours to file electronic nominations with USDF. From these nominations, final invitations for the US Dressage Finals will be issued, with entries closing October 24.

Horse Association & Club News BRIGHTON TRAIL RIDERS As this article is being written, we've just suffered through some 95-plus degree days, but today barely made it into the mid-60's. Actually, we love temperatures in the 60's and 70's. Those days when it gets into the high 80's and 90's are too hard on horse and rider. That's what we love about fall in Michigan – we can have some absolutely glorious days, and we're looking forward to that kind of weather at Brighton. We're really looking forward to our upcoming event on September 21st: the “Chilly Chili Ride.” We talked about this last month but what we want to mention this month is the good fortune of several BTRA mem-bers such as Sue Charleville. Sue and Gayle Pawl are BTRA Board members and are neighbors. Both of them have almost immediate access to the Brighton Rec horse trails, and often ride together. So all they have to do is agree on a time to ride, saddle up (they both keep their horses on their property), meet up, and hit the trails. The rest of us have to trailer our horses to Brighton and although we're not complaining, it's a lot less hassle for people like Sue and Gayle. However, there's something to be said for trailering your horse to your favorite staging area. Typically, there are other rigs there and if you're a regular, it's almost certain that you'll see someone you know, and maybe even ride with them. Plus, you'll have the opportunity to meet other riders and strike up a conversation. After the ride, a cool drink and a snack with some additional socializing top off the day. The staging area at Brighton has been getting a lot of business and when I rode there last Sunday, 10 rigs had pulled in. Our horseman's camp has also had a good number of visitors, despite the fact that plans are still under way for relocating the camp operation. The DNR recently sent out emails to people who had registered to camp at Brighton, asking them for input. We applaud the local DNR management at Brighton for this move. After all, who knows better

than the people who actually use a facility? As we get into October, we're planning for our last big outdoor event of the season: the annual Poker Ride. We've hosted this event for years and it always draws a good crowd. However, we're mindful of the fact that it can no longer be denied the riding season is not going to stretch on for too much longer. That's why we want to take every opportunity to get in the saddle and enjoy the trails at Brighton. As always, we welcome visitors. To learn more about BTRA, visit our website at www.brightontralriders.com. - Mark Delaney, BTRA Sec.

FORT CUSTER HORSE FRIENDS ASSOCIATION Hello Trail Riders! As you are reading this we will have had our Annual Fall Equestrian Campout. There has been a good number of people pre -registering for campsites, so we are antici-pating a good turn-out this year. We have put in 24 new picket poles at the special event area by Whitford Lake to make camping with your horses more enjoyable. Our DNR and Park manager have been working with us to make so many improvements this year. Our trailhead staging area is in the process of being finished the month. We received a $2000 grant from the Michigan Horse Council to contribute to the $18,000 needed for the parking lot expansion and completion. As the gravel trucks are hauling material in, you might have to park at the Whitford Lake area. Temporary signs will be posted to direct rigs/riders to that area. After the trailhead is completed, we will be getting our new pavilion for the staging area. This was made possible from funds from our club and a Match Grant Fund from the DNR . Your membership dues and grant monies go right back into the park and trails. Thanks to everyone, the DNR and the Michigan Horse Council! Please come and ride our new trails this fall and enjoy the colors along the Kalamazoo River with a

KENSINGTON TRAIL RIDERS On September 7, Kensington Trail Riders, along with Proud Lake Trail Riders, held a Circle Ride to benefit the Michigan Horse Welfare Coalition's Hay Bank. Both clubs want to say a big THANK YOU to the members and friends and that came out to ride. We had 90 riders and were able to donate almost $1,200 to the Hay Bank to help our equine community over the coming winter. We are so proud of all of you! We would also like to thank Kensington Metropark who went through and groomed the trail from the Kensington Staging Area to Old Plank Road removing downed trees and vines grown out into the trail. A thank you needs to go to Cindy Godair and her crew for trimming trails and branches and marking the trail on the Proud Lake side to make it easier for all riders to get to the Proud Lake Staging area. And, finally, thanks to all those chefs and bring-a-dish folks at both staging areas who fed our

riders. Great job everyone!

So, what's coming in October? A KTRA Campout BBQ!!! We will hold the KTRA fall campout on October 4 – 6 at Kensington Metropark. Registration begins Friday, October 4 at 10:00 AM. Camping is $25/campsite/night ($50 total). Each campsite will accommodate two horses on picket lines (bring your own line). There will be a Saturday night potluck. KTRA will provide BBQ ribs and chicken. We ask that you bring a side dish or dessert to pass (dinner at 4:30). Also on Saturday night we will have a live band playing from 5-8 PM. Dinner is $20/person for members and $25/person for non-members. If you come for the dancing only the cost is $10 per person for members or nonmembers. KTRA will also provide a complimentary breakfast on Saturday morning for campers. Pre-register by contacting Judy by phone at 734-891-2788 or by email: judseifried@gmail.com. A registration form can be downloaded from our website kensingtontrailriders.org under Events. This event sells out! Have you encountered a trail problem? Remember KTRA has a 'report a trail problem' link on www.kensingtontrailriders.org. We appreciate it when you help us keep our trails clear! Coming up in November: The Thanksgiving/Christmas parade in Milford. This is a member-only event; remember to renew your membership if necessary!

Horse Association & Club News MI APPALOOSA HORSE ASSC. Greetings! I'm coming to you this month as things slow down in Michigan and as some folks make their final preparations for The Appaloosa World Champ-ionship Show. The Board of Directors would like to continue their thanks and hopes had a wonderful experience this year in the pen! As always, we welcome your thoughts and comments to help improve this wonderful association. Though it may be a little early, MApHA Board of Directors could not be more excited to celebrate those accomplishments at our annual banquet! Obviously, we'll have more information as the dates approach. Don't forget about our many youth fundraisers: collecting TRIBUTE proofs of purchase and our ink cartridge collection. Either item can be dropped off at the show office of MAPHA or WMAR show OR you can contact our youth represent-atives. Their contact information can be located on our website. As many of you clean and store your tack for the final time this year, remember the MApHA NonPros booth at the MSU February Tack Sale. Items can be donated at any time, but will only consider those that are clean and useable! This year the Non-Pros will also take items on consignment with a percentage going to their general fund. More details to follow on the consignment items. Please direct questions to any Non-Pro Board Member or Tami Vickery at tvickery3200@gmail.com If you have MApHA news to share, please contact Dustin Boehmer at 269-420-1242 or by email at boehmer3@msu.edu. Until next month, Dustin M Boehmer MICHIGAN COMPETITIVE MOUNTED ORIENTEERING Well the season is winding down and there are only two rides left. This year has been a great one for my team the Flaming Hoofprints. Although we are far from the fastest team out there, it looks like our horses will make it

into the 100 point club. It is rewarding to find the plates in the woods after a long search and lots of riding. I think my horse is starting to figure out what the plates look like! In August we had the chance to enjoy the trails at Sleepy Hollow again. Barb Drake did a great job of putting on the first ride with mistakes added in on purpose. Riders had to use their reasoning skills to figure out the clues when information was left out or incorrect. It made for a challenging ride but was a fun break from the average CMO. The proceeds for this ride were presented to the Sleepy Hollow Trail Riders Association. A great big thank you to them for letting us camp in their day use area so that we can enjoy their trails. The ride in September was again greeted with lovely weather, missing the rain by only a few hours. The morning was a little crisp but fortunately most of us could hook up to electricity and had our heaters running. The trails at the Everett A. Cummings Center in Mt. Morris were well kept and fun to ride. The footing was great. A great big thank you goes to Melissa and Randy Fox for putting on a great ride. The times each day were within a few minutes between first and second place long course teams. It gets competitive up there at the top! October looks to be a great time to ride with our last rides during the fall color. On October 12th and 13th we will be going to Fort Custer in Battle Creek for the first time. They have installed several picket posts and are allowing us to stay overnight in their day use area. I can't wait to explore some new trails. The following weekend we will be going even further south to Three Rivers to ride at the Eberhart Center. This is a beautiful place to ride and stalls are available if you call ahead. For more information check out our website at micmo.org or look in the events section of Saddle Up! Magazine. After our season is all wrapped up we will have time to look forward to the general membership meeting and then the banquet. Stay safe on the trails this fall! Janet

PROUD LAKE TRAIL RIDERS Fall is in the air and time to enjoy those beautiful fall colors on the trails! We are so pleased to announce that the Circle Ride we put on with Kensington Trail Riders was a HUGE success. Between the two groups we had ninety riders and raised around $1100.00 towards the Horse Welfare Coalition. The rain could not even dampen the fun that was had by all. Thank you to everyone who came out. It was great to see you all! We hope to join with Kensington again next year for this great event. Our next big event is our annual Halloween Spooktacular event. This is on Saturday, October 26th. We will have trail trick or treating, a costume contest with separate prizes for our younger riders and as always… a delicious pot luck lunch. Registration starts at 9a.m. Rain date will be on Sunday, October 27th. Keep checking our website or Facebook page for more details. Hope to see you all there! Please keep in mind that being that we ride in a state park, we are responsible for the trail maintenance. We have spent many hours out on the trails trimming and are always looking for an extra hand. Our worker bee days are always a lot of fun and we usually try to get in a ride and a campfire as well. We will announce organized dates throughout the fall and will also send out emails on any impromptu work days we have as well. Happy Trails and remember… Ride Happy, Ride Safe and Love Your Horse!

SLEEPY HOLLOW TRAIL RIDERS Labor Day weekend was celebrated with a weekend campover at Sleepy Hollow. Folks came from all over the state. The trails, some' ores, campfires, and potluck dinner were enjoyed. Thank goodness for the pavilion as a gathering spot as it rained hard Friday night and broke the heat. Mexican train, checkers and battleship games were played. The table cloth was decorated with markers. I really enjoyed having my young grandchildren with me for their last campout before school. SHTRA's cart trails are a perfect way to get those kids out on the trail with Sundance and me. The 50/50 drawing was won by Nancy Simmons. Our new outhouse is in and makes the folks on the east side happy not to walk so far. All of us were glad not to have to drive up north to enjoy a nice trail riding weekend. Thanks to Don and Pat who cut the wood and got the fires going. Don't forget that the Annual Judged Trail Ride is Sunday Oct. 6 with the Rangers 4-H Club hosting their memorial event.

Also asked if it would be ok to create a page with links to other camp grounds, all favored this idea. Old Business: Ron handed out 2 proposals for graphics for the sides of YSTRA's trailer with quotes from Scott Roberts, Sign Depot. All picked #2 example which has a blank area we could use to display sponsors, good idea Roland. Scott would put the Logo on the trailer 33” tall x 112” long x2 (both sides) for $240.00 installation $140.00 for a total of $380.00 total. As we had already budgeted $600.00 this year for shelves (which are completed) and painting of the trailer it was decided to wait until next year to purchase the graphics. Ron, Skip, and Simon volunteered to paint the sides of the trail. Camp road repair update: Kudos go to Tom Chaffee and his crew for all the work they did on the camp road repair. Where there was sand, there now is gravel and a culvert was installed in the new road through camp. Sand was dumped next to the day parking area for a horse rolling pit. We all thank you Tom and crew! Old Business - Trail Update: There is an area that still needs to be trimmed on the 9 mile near Sager road. Autumn Olive needs to be trimmed back and sprayed. Ron has emailed Sara Schaefer, DNR officer for the game area, asking when can we get this done. Halloween Event Update: Nena reports we are on track for a great Halloween event this year. A schedule has been created so

WEST MI APPALOOSA REG. Save for the Appaloosa World Show, the 2013 WMAR show season is now over. It's hard to believe that this summer has gone by so quickly. With the show season wound down, it is kind of nice to be able to just go out and enjoy a nice ride without worrying so much about schooling for this or that. With the bugs on the decline, might even be a good time to go out on the trails a little bit. We had quite a few folks out there snapping photos at our shows and Bobbie Best has spent quite a bit of time updating our website with them. Please take a few minutes to check them all out. You might just find that you were one of the subjects! WMAR Board meetings will be starting up with the first meeting October 12 at the MSU Pavilion in one of the classrooms under the stands. Please remember that members are always welcome. The Non Pros will be collecting donated clean usable tack for the tack sale and soon we will be taking on items for consignment (details to be worked out). I believe they are planning on having a booth at the big tack sale at MSU in February. Don't forget to keep up with the latest WMAR news by checking out the association website at www.wmarapp.org or on our Facebook page. - Sharon Clark YANKEE SPRINGS TRL RIDERS Board Meeting Minutes: 9/11/13 This meeting was held in the Pavilion at the YS Horseman's Campground and started at 6:00 pm with a delicious potluck.

volunteers know what needs to be done. Anyone wanting to help out during this fun day let Nena know at nenasinteriors@aol.com. Date: October 19 t h ; Time: 10:00am – 3:00pm. Thank you Laura Rittershofer for the donation of a bucket of horse cookies. We are looking for more donations for the gift table, if you would like to donate let Nena know. Ron is working up a medallion as a giveaway for our junior's, will have example for our next meeting. Group campout at the Out Back is planned for October 11th. There is still room for anyone who would like to go. Adopt-a-highway update: Volunteers need to view their video and sign a release form to become a volunteer. Tentative trash pickup date is Sunday, September,29 - 1:00 pm to meet at the YS horseman's campground. Tom will get the bags, Ron will check on approved dates to work. New Business – Harvest Fest at the People Campground. We have been asked by Andreu to participate in this year's Harvest Fest. Bruce Campbell will be there with his team of horses for hay rides. Dick Smith will bring a roping dummy and his roping horse. Skip & Jeanne Burger & Kathy Taylor will bring a horse for pony rides. We will also be selling T-shirts. Anyone who would like to help out or bring their horse for the kids to ride is welcome. Carla Walker made a suggestion we change our trail colors to red, white, and blue, the old black, silver, and purple are getting hard to see. Ron will ask Andru if that would be acceptable. Happy Trails, Kathy Taylor, YSTRA Secretary

• EQUINE HEALTH SERIES •

Quick Tips for Managing Fall & Winter Colic By Dr. Eleanor Kellon, VMD Staff Veterinary Specialist for Uckele Health & Nutrition

Whether you are a seasoned equestrian or a new horse owner, remembering the health risks associated with falling temperatures is important for everyone and every horse! Colic can strike at any time and has many known and not so well understood factors. However, fall and winter are particularly high risk and there are several things you can do to decrease your horse's colic jeopardy. As pastures fail in the fall and the horse must switch to a different diet, two major factors are at play. One is the fact there is a

different diet. The other is change in moisture level of the diet. Most people know they should transition slowly when adding or changing grains and other concentrates. However, it is important to realize that a change in forage, including hay types, should also be made gradually. This is because the protein, sugar and starch components of hay are digested in the small intestine, and while digestive enzymes there can adjust to changes, it takes time. Undigested fractions then spill

over into the large intestine, where the resident microorganisms must deal with them. Hays also contain a variety of fiber types and complex plant carbohydrate compounds that can only be fermented in the large intestine. The bacteria, protozoa and, to a lesser extent, yeasts in the large intestine work together to efficiently ferment. For example, some species will ferment starch, sugars and fructans into lactate while others will use that lactate as their fuel, preventing acidosis that could harm the fiber fermenting organisms. The population of organisms in the large intestine will mirror the food that is presented to them but efficient adaptation takes time. Allow at least 5 to 7 days to make a complete change. If that sounds complex, it is. The moral of the story is to avoid rapid changes in diet, including substituting hay for grass and changing hays. Disruptions in organisms that occur with rapid changes can cause gas and possible displacement of the colon, diarrhea from incomplete fermentation, even changes in how well the intestine contracts and moves food along. Inadequate water consumption is the leading cause of impaction. An average size horse needs to consume at least 4 to 5 gallons of water per day even in very cold weather because for much of their journey through the bowel, intestinal contents have a high

moisture level, much like soup. In addition to what the horse drinks, fluids are actively secreted along the intestinal tract, then reabsorbed in the terminal portions of the colon. The fluid keeps things moving freely and allows for good mixing, which assists in absorption and fermentation. How to get them to drink? • The horse is most likely to drink while, or shortly after, eating hay, so hay and water should be placed close together. • Warm water is consumed more readily. At the very least, water should never be allowed to freeze over. • To encourage drinking, add at least one ounce of salt to the feed daily, or dissolve and spray on the hay for picky horses. • Intake can be increased by adding warm water to pellets, hay cubes, even sweet feeds. Beet pulp is ideal because it can hold four times its weight in water. • Adding some wheat bran improves appeal. The final colic risk factor, especially in winter, is inactivity. Do not reduce turnout and stall the horse unless weather is really severe. When conditions are so bad the horse is barely moving, ensuring adequate water intake goes a long way toward preventing impaction colic. This article is not intended as medical advice.

Trotting on the Trail Once you have mastered posting, you can add the trot to your on-trail training. However, always make sure that you are on good footing before you ask for the trot or canter on the trail. The trot is an excellent gait for conditioning. It is also the perfect gait for going uphill and downhill—provided the footing is safe—since it allows the horse to easily engage his hindquarters. If you have limited time for your trail ride, a fast trot also lets you cover more ground in less time. Look for sections of the trail that are straight and with good footing to practice the fast trot and keep your focus ahead in the direction you are moving. Do not get in the habit of looking down at your horse or at the ground as it will break your rhythm and focus and you might miss upcoming hazards. Use lots of transitions in your on-trail training to strengthen your horse's hindquarters. Go from a walk to a slow trot and

• PALM PARTNERSHIP TRAINING™ • Building a Partnership with Your Horse

ON-TRAIL TRAINING, Part X By Lynn Palm www.LynnPalm.com • 1-800-503-2824

It's hard to beat a rhythmic, brisk trot down a beautiful trail. Last month we talked about the fast trot, and in this article, I will continue on with the trot and discuss posting to the trot. The two-beat rhythm of the horse's diagonal legs makes the trot an up and down motion for the rider. This can be an uncomfortable gait to sit unless you are an advanced rider who has learned to do so and your horse has a relaxed back. Posting to the trot mimics the up and down motion of the horse's gait, and it allows the rider to stay in better balance with the horse's motion and is much more comfortable to ride. Although you may think of the posting trot as being strictly for English riders, this is not the case. Many riders in the Western disciplines post the trot when training at home because it is more comfortable for the horse as well as for the rider. Like any physical activity that is new, posting may seem awkward at first; but it will come easily after you have mastered the motion. Posting is a fairly quick action where your hips rise and gently fall following the rhythm of the

trot. With your upper body inclined slightly forward, your hips move towards the front of the saddle on one beat of the trot. On the second beat, you should gently sit in the middle of the saddle. Your hips must be in line with you legs in order to post and stay balanced and not get either in front of or behind the horse's motion. Describing posting makes it seem much more difficult than it is. In reality, the horse's motion “throws” you up and forward on beat one, and gravity brings you back into the saddle on beat two. The most important thing to remember is to control your return to the saddle so that you do not plop onto your horse's back. If you feel like you might lose your balance while you are learning to post, hold both reins in one hand with light contact and hold onto the saddle horn or a handful of mane with the other hand. It is better to do this than to use your reins for balance which might confuse or hinder your horse. Like anything new, posting just takes time and practice. You probably should perfect your posting in an enclosed arena before you take it out on the trail.

then increase speed at the trot while sitting. As the speed of the trot increases, begin posting. Once you have a good rhythmic posting trot going, ask your horse to lengthen his stride. To do this, sit a little deeper on the down portion of your posting and add pressure with both calves evenly. Relax your legs when you rise up out of the saddle. Control is always the key to enjoying a trail ride. If you feel out of control at a fast trot, go back to the walk. If you still feel that your horse is getting out of control, come to a halt. Never hesitate to get off and control your horse from the ground if you feel your safety is in jeopardy. This material is adapted from a series of articles I did with writer Cynthia McFarland for Trail Rider Magazine. Many trail-training lessons can be found in my book, Training Outside the Box.
