On Our Front Cover


elational Riding Academy has been in the Inland Northwest since 1999. Located at a small private facility near Mt. Spokane since 2003, the Academy ultimately grew too big and needed a larger place to accommodate the clientele. In late fall of 2013, ARIA certified instructor Michelle BinderZolezzi with husband Tom Zolezzi arranged to purchase a familiar landmark Cheney horse farm once known as “Fireball Ranch.” More lately Evans Farm, the facility had fallen into disuse over the last 10 years. Areas of the farm were demolished, rebuilt, and housed RRA’s 25 horses in just six weeks. Renovation of the horse barn was first priority followed by improvements to the arena footing, and finally fencing on the 12 acre pasture. This summer work continues to bring the irrigation system back on line, repair roofs, complete fencing projects, build a permanent trail course and repair the very large second indoor arena. Many well-known Spokane area trainers and instructors had been active at the place during its heyday and Relational Riding Academy looks forward to bringing Fireball Ranch back to life as a European style riding academy. Binder continues to teach the English disciplines in which she is

certified: Hunt Seat/Jumping, Dressage and Combined Training. She also works both locally and nationally in the promotion of Western Dressage and Cowboy Dressage. Private and group lessons for adults and youth riders, summer camps and a “Teen Retreat” are scheduled in spring, summer and fall sessions. Western Dressage nights open to the public are hosted on Monday evenings and Cowboy Dressage gatherings happen on Wednesday night throughout the rest of the summer and fall. Relational Riding Academy is located at 3714 W. Anderson Road, Cheney, Washington. Telephone, 509-290-4301.

Demolished fences

was pretty much uninhabitable so we started by demolishing everything that had to go. Amazing volunteers including folks from the I Can Horse Co-op in Deer Park came out to remove wire and staples, drop gates, pull posts and start in the barn. Perimeter fencing was completely removed leaving the 16 acre property frighteningly open. The type and condition of the materials made it impossible to re-use much, so we elected to put up new electric high tension polymer coated cable fencing. To save funds, our pull points were constructed of re-used railroad ties in new concrete, with H bracing and angle bracing made of re-used round posts to withstand the forces that would be applied to the fencing. Cost of the braces was the cost of concrete alone, about $300.00. New round wood fence posts went in with 3/8 minus gravel and a pneumatic tamper from the local rental yard, gravel and tamper together ran about $330.00. We decided to save some funds and install 7 foot T posts between the braces to hold the wire instead of using new wood posts all around. Using a $7.00 Stall and paddock before renovation post instead of a nearly $20.00 post saved almost $3,000.00. We chose not to use the fancy white PVC covers made to make the T posts pretty and that saved almost $1,600.00. The guys went to Colfax for a quick lesson in high tension wire installation, came home and started running fence. It went up easily and quickly once the pull points were properly installed and braced, ratchets and insulators were installed. The new fence looks pretty, seems very safe, and promises to have good longevity. By paying attention to the cost of the materials, making decisions we could live with when choosing new materials, by re-using materials, and by doing the labor ourselves, we saved almost $15,000.00 from the cost of a professional fence installation. In addition, the fencing materials we removed were given to someone that wanted to build a fence better than the one they had! Yes, we could have sold it to offset the cost of the new fence but sometimes a gift makes sense in the grand scheme of things.

As the outside areas were taking shape, inside the barn things were also moving forward. Bringing horses home meant redoing stall floors so pitStall floors before renovation ted there were holes nearly two feet deep once we cleaned them out down to the useful substrate. The only thing to be done was to add fill but NOT topsoil. To save funds, we used a gravel reject product from the local pit instead of expensive aggregate. Then we added a 4” layer of compacted gravel, and finally installed the rubber mats. For a couple of stalls, this work is hard but doable without a tractor. Remember, for horses, leveling your floors might be important for their long term health and soundness. The plate compactor is easy to use and cheap to rent and a pick-up load of gravel is very affordable. Used mats, 1/2” mats, rubber belting or similar material can be used to protect the floor, make cleaning easier, and provide a level standing surface for your horse. The rest is sweat equity and well worth applying to improve the conditions for your animals and the value of your property. The horse barn had automatic waterers, that with one look, told us were not in working order despite reassurance from the owner that they were. We priced new waterers and found that brand new Brower double stall waterers would cost $365.00 apiece. There were nine waterers in the barn that serviced 18 stalls for a total replacement cost of $3,285. The original waterers were manufactured by Ritchie Industries in the Midwest and approximately 30 years old but given the figure for replacement we hoped we could fix the old ones. Years of accumulated crud had to be scraped away so we could read important parts and model numbers. When we called Ritchie, the response was “We haven’t made waterers with metal pans in years. What color are they?” Oh dear… Pan heaters in these waterers were integral to the pan itself and helped Ritchie determine exactly what we were looking at. Finally the model was identified and parts were ordered for repairs. The rusty pans were cleaned with rust remover and steel wool, incoming water lines and water pipe valves were replaced after removing the waterer from the pedestal, the waterer boxes were

thoroughly cleaned, new float and valve assemblies were ordered from Ritchie Industries, and the waterers were reassembled. Parts were obtained from local hardware stores and from the manufacturer. Total cost of repairing each automatic waterer was less than $40. We made 2 stalls Stall and paddock after renovation into ready rooms so fixed 8 waterers for less than the cost of one new waterer. If you have things on your farm that don’t work, don’t give up hope for repair. Do your research and find out what you can about the item your are working with. In some cases, repairs can be made and with perseverance, a little elbow grease, patience and ingenuity, many old things can be made serviceably sound and last for many more years. Feeder construction started once stall floors were done. One way to save money on maStall interior after renovation

terials is to go directly to the manufacturer of the thing you need to purchase. Ask about buying mill ends, seconds, or flawed product that can’t be sold in the normal market. New bottoms were cut from plywood seconds($12.00/sheet), new front boards were cut from 2x6 seconds ($3.00 each), and the backs were cut from FRP seconds ($20.00/sheet). As long as you are careful not to use the section of the material that is flawed, you can produce a great result by utilizing the portion of the material that is good as new. Sometimes this means more waste, but careful use of the material, cutting as many pieces as you can from one sheet, can still minimize that. We used new material for the feeder grill and cut 3 fronts from each $24.00 panel. Cost of each slow feeder in the stalls was less than $35.00. I hope that sharing the story of renovating “Fireball Ranch” gives you hope and a sense of what is possible if you are willing to shop wisely and carefully for materials and to do as much of the work on your place as you can. Good luck!

A New Approach to Deworming

veterinary knowledge

a gel e s s

Dr. Jake Lynch, McKinlay Peters Equine Hospital


Dr. Jake Lynch McKinlay Peters Equine Hospital

Deworming recommendations have changed in recent years, creating a lot of confusion. It used to be we dewormed our horses every 6-8 weeks at the time of shoeing. However, this blanket approach to deworming is unnecessary, oversimplified, and has contributed to the emergence of parasites resistant to current dewormers. The development of a new class of dewormer is years away; therefore, it is imperative to protect the ef-

fectiveness of the ones we have. Our goal is not to completely eliminate all parasites. This is unreasonable because parasites employ many strategies to persist in the environment which means elimination is not possible. Trying to eliminate all parasites has, in part, led to the overuse of dewormers and the subsequent development of resistance. There are well documented resistance problems of certain parasites to certain dewormers. Our primary goal is to minimize parasitic disease and control contamination

of the environment while preserving the effectiveness of our dewormers. There are many things to consider when deciding what to deworm your horse with and how often to do it. It is a discussion you should have with your veterinarian because every situation is different, and every horse is different. Your veterinarian will assess many factors including age, local climate, stocking density – the number of horses in a pasture or paddock, whether or not your horses have access to pasture, and their current parasite burden. An important tool your veterinarian will use is the fecal egg count (FEC). FECs measure the number of parasite eggs in one gram of feces. The test may be run for different reasons, but one of the most important is to determine how often to deworm your horse. Some horses are better able to control parasitic infections than others, and this a function of their immune system. It has been found that approximately 20% of horses on a pasture contribute 80% of the parasite egg contamination. These are the horses we want to treat more frequently. Horses that naturally control parasite numbers at low levels should be treated less frequently. When should FECs be done? We want to evaluate a fecal sample a few weeks after the effectiveness of the last dewormer has worn off. The length of time will vary depending on the particular dewormer used. FECs also can be used to determine

if there is a resistance problem. In this case, a fecal sample will be taken prior to and a couple of weeks after a horse is dewormed. If there is not a substantial decrease in the number of eggs per gram of feces, you have parasites on your property that are resistant to the dewormer used. Age is another important consideration. Young animals are not able to fend off parasites as well as adult horses. Because of this, they are dewormed differently. Horses that are less than a year of age should be dewormed at 2 month intervals beginning at 2 months of age. Of particular concern to foals and weanlings are ascarids (roundworms). Ascarids have a complex lifecycle which involves migration through the lungs. At high numbers, this can lead to respiratory problems. Also, ascarids can cause an impaction colic that is often fatal. Fenbendazole is usually effective against ascarids and is a good choice for a foal’s first deworming. Subsequent deworming choices are best determined by fecal examination, which will identify which parasites are most problematic on your premises. A fecal exam just prior to the next deworming at 4 months would be helpful. Strongyles are the biggest concern in adult horses. There are large strongyles and small strongyles and each has a very different lifecycle. With the advent of ivermectin in the 1980’s, large strongyles have become much less common. However, small strongyles have remained a large problem due to the larvae’s ability to encyst within the walls of the intestines. Most dewormers can kill only the adult worms, but not the encysted larvae.

Some parasites need pasture, others do not. Strongyles need grazeable pasture. They cannot complete their lifecycle in a dry lot or stall. This goes for tapeworms as well. Ascarids, however, are not dependent upon pasture, and they can be a problem for young horses in almost any environment. Climate plays a large role in the timing of deworming. Strongyle eggs hatch to release infective larvae. When temperatures get too hot or too cold, strongyle larvae begin to die. In the Pacific Northwest, this means spring and fall are of most concern. Most horses should be dewormed at least twice a year, in the spring and late fall. Because of their age or propensity to shed high numbers of parasite eggs, some horses will need to be dewormed more frequently during the warm months of the year. A “one size fits all” deworming program does not exist. Your veterinarian should play an important part in designing a deworming program targeted specifically for your horses. This will help ensure your horses are healthy without contributing to the problem of drug resistant parasites.

Map and Compass Course by Don Dyer


he Inland Empire Chapter of Back Country Horsemen will be sponsoring Robert Eversole, better known as The Trailmeister, in assisting you to become more knowledgeable and more comfortable using a map and compass. This course is designed for horsemen but is open to the public. The course will be held at Riverside State Park Equestrian Area July 25th and 26th. There is no charge for attending this course with the exception of any fees the Park may charge us. Depending on the number of people attending there may be a Park fee of five dollars a day per person ($5). You will be required to sign a liability waiver to attend the course. Robert is a retired Marine and utilized these skills for many years in the Marine Corps, and has been traveling around the country for the last five years, since retirement, teaching thousands of others the proper use of a map and compass. This is an opportunity for you to learn a new skill or bone up and refresh some lost skills. If time allows, there will be some discussion on the use of a GPS. It is sometimes very handy when traveling to a new area to ride, hike or bike (bike use will not be permitted in the equestrian area) to be able to pick up a map and get familiar with the area, knowing what the terrain is, the trails and other points of interest are before you arrive. You need to know what type of trails you will be riding on. Are they steep? Do the trails make a loop? What distances will you be riding? A lot of information can be ascertained from a map of the area if you know the secrets of translating the information. It is especially important if you are planning a pack trip and can be just as important for a day ride if you have a schedule to meet. Training will begin on Friday night at 7pm. This will be the classroom portion and should take about three hours. There will be short breaks for meals. The class will resume on Saturday at 9am. Those of you with horses will want to bring them. Saturday will be the practical application portion of the course; this is where you will put to use what you were taught the night before. There is a minimum requirement that at least six people sign up for this course in order for it to be held. For those of you who have not been to Riverside State Park Equestrian Campground there are twenty campsites with

twenty corrals for horses. You are permitted to highline or tie to your trailer if you have multiple horses, please make sure you use tree savers if you highline. There is a $20.00 fee per night for camping there and I do suggest you make reservations in advance if you desire to camp. You can make reservations online by going to washington.goingtocamp.com/ or call 1-888-226-7688. There is also an arena and a round pen and hopefully soon there will be an obstacle training course or at least the beginnings of one. It also requested that you LEAVE NO TRACE of your camping there, clean your area and have it ready for the next person. This area is quite beautiful with some very nice easy trails. If you wish to attend the Map and Compass course, please contact Don Dyer at IEBCHPRES@aol.com. If you have any questions, you may call 509-283-4250 or email me at the above address. Hope to see you there!

Ann Kirk Buddy Sour vs Separation Anxiety Driving in a car, riding on the trail, lying in bed when I can’t sleep – I find myself thinking about words I hear used to describe horse behavior and wonder if the words do them justice. Do words like disrespectful, stupid, stubborn or buddy sour give a clear picture of why a horse does what he does? Do phrases like “He just likes to fight with me” or “She knows what I want, she just doesn’t want to do it”, adequately sum up a horse’s motive behind his response? Well, here’s a thought for you to think about concerning your horse. Why do we call it “Buddy Sour” when a horse fights and fusses about leaving his herd or “Barn Sour” when he wants to stay in his corral; but we label it “Separation Anxiety” when a dog gets upset when his people leave and tears up the house to pieces waiting for them to return? And why should it make a difference as long as we get the picture? Because, the words I use to define the problem determine my attitude toward the horse and thus affects my approach when applying a solution. And, with horses, your attitude will greatly effect the outcome. If you approach the training session with an attitude of “showing him who’s boss”, you can make him more anxious and that is what he might have been trying to tell you in the first place. In my experience, “Buddy Sour” and “Separation Anxiety” both apply with horses. I see horses that I would describe as “Buddy Sour”. These horses don’t appear nervous when

you catch them, but will do whatever they can get away with to stay with the herd. But I see more horses that I would diagnose as having “Separation Anxiety” when taken away from their friend or comfort zone. The main difference I see is in how much it affects their trainability. Almost all horses start out with some “Separation Anxiety”. Unless the horse has been handled enough from birth to be as comfy with a person as with other horses, by nature he will not enjoy being separated from the herd. But, as you repeatedly catch him, work with him and then return him to his safe zone, most horses accept the sequence and you become their ‘pseudo herd’ during their time with you. But the horse that suffers from “Separation Anxiety” takes longer to adjust and each new phase of training often brings the anxiety back to the surface. If I am starting a colt, it is not hard to get him fairly comfortable in an arena setting. Round pen and arena work lends itself to keeping the horse busy with focused exercises, lateral work and trotting or cantering work. As long as the training is patient enough for the horse to understand what is expected,

he will soon relax and respond willingly in the enclosed area. But too fast, too intense training sessions can mess up the young horse even for arena work. The place where I really notice the difference between what I would call a “Buddy Sour” horse and one with “Separation Anxiety” is out on the trail. The “Buddy Sour” horse will often fuss about leaving home but will settle down and be content for the ride, once he accepts that he is going. Whatever issues he has are easily trained out of him and he becomes confident in a reasonable amount of time. He often rides just as well or better alone than he does with other horses; and it is not hard to get him to stay in a walk so you can enjoy the ride, even when he knows he is headed home. The anxious horse, on the other hand, doesn’t always put up a big fight about leaving home except to drag his feet going out. But you will be able to mark the halfway point on every trail because as soon as he thinks he is heading home, his energy picks up, he wants to trot or run if you don’t hold him back, and you can just feel the tension in his body. It is hard to train him to settle down and control his speed. He usually rides better with other horses even if they are not his herd. Once the emotion comes up, it takes a lot of patience and the right type of exercises to bring him back down. Some are so emotional about the whole riding process, they start

OAk SuRRy WAgOn With FRinge tOp

getting worried the moment you catch them and stay anxious until you turn them back loose. Now horses are horses and personalities are genetic but how the horse is started makes a huge difference. You can make a quiet horse nervous and a willing horse sour by not giving the horse the benefit of the doubt and making sure he understands what you are asking before adding too much pressure to perform. “You can’t demand what you haven’t taught”. If the training process becomes a series of intense emotional sessions, the horse will become anxious about being worked and will not feel safe with the handler. This makes the horse zero in on returning to his herd or his pen where his emotions can return to normal. It can be likened to having Post Traumatic Stress Disorder because horses are naturally anxious about what they don’t understand; and if they get disciplined when they don’t know what is expected, it confirms their fears. Don’t get me wrong, I correct a horse harshly if they are treating me like another horse. I have to make them understand quickly that they can’t bite me, kick me, walk into me or ignore me, ever. I will do what it takes so I can be safe working with them. But, as soon as I can, I want to focus on teaching them what I want them to do and not always focus on what not to do. This is where I gain their trust. I have rehabbed many horses whose problems came from being pushed too hard, too fast and then being over-corrected when they didn’t understand. So, take the time to really think about what words you have heard used to describe your horse; or even what you, yourself, have said about him. Are they adequate “horse terminology” or are they people words applied incorrectly? Is your horse trying to tell you something with his worry? Just something to think about in the middle of the night when you can’t sleep. God Bless.......Ann Ann Kirk is available for Sensible Horsemanship Clinics or Workshops in your area.

On The edge Of COmmOn SenSe by Baxter Black, DVM

Larger Riders Mean Larger Horses An interview with several dude wranglers and packers showed they have accommodated the increasing number of large people. Using Belgians, Percherons and their crosses are mentioned often. Draft horses are gentle beasts by nature and most wranglers are ready with a hefty footstool to assist in mounting up. This is done out of respect for the infrequent rider whose needs must be met. I admire the wrangler’s willingness despite the increase in cost to shoe, maintain and feed the heavy horses. The object is to give the customer a “good experience.” Can you imagine an airline sending out a memo to all agents, flight attendants, telephone operators and bag handlers to make a significant effort to give the customer a “good experience?” As much as I depend on the airlines in my business, I cannot picture 5 or 6 airline executives sitting around the table debating how to serve them a better snack while on a 3 ½ hour flight. “We should do something about those pitiful peanuts and pretzel sticks. I know, we can’t keep splurging like that!"

For the big-boned traveler who takes up a lot of room, flying is a pain. You’d think the airlines would take a lesson from the dude wranglers. In the last 20 years obesity (such an awful word… how ‘bout magnosity) has increased to more than a third of American adults. That’s a pretty big market (excuse the pun). I commend those packers, hunting guides and dude wranglers. They go the extra mile to make the oversize customer comfortable even though it increases their personal risk. I have heard tale after tale of “mounting” and “dismounting” wrecks! And in most instances it is the hapless cowboy who ‘breaks the fall.’ They become a human air bag, throwing themselves in harm’s way to catch the descending landslide and, like as not, manages to crawl, dig or is dragged out from under the XL boulder once the dust is settled. That kind of self-sacrifice should be rewarded. I propose that at the end of each season awards be given. Not akin to the Academy Award Oscars but medals for bravery and service in combat conditions. The armed forces awards a Purple Heart, a Silver Star and a Medal of Honor. We could call ours the Black & Blue Heart, the Silver Concussion or the Broken Buttocks. “And now, Ladies and Gentlemen, we will present the winner of the Ruptured Spleen medal to… Sandy from Black Mountain Outfitters in Emigrant, Montana, who set a new state record high! Her wreck registered a 7.1 on the Richter Scale! Limp on up here, Sandy, and get yer prize! www.baxterblack.com

Enjoying Day Rides Cheryle Jacobsen-Hannahs Inland Empire Back Country Horsemen Last month the Inland Empire Back Country Horseman held its 20th Annual Poker Ride. The day rolled out to be one of those rare events where weather, trusty mounts, and good horseman made for a pleasant time. If you came, you probably saw me at the registration desk. As I chatted with riders and checked them in, I could not help but notice what folks were taking with them. While this was an organized ride and we provided much added safety for the day, such as: we pre-rode and marked the trail, had outriders watching over the ride, and EMT on site to name a few. Most riders had water and a few supplies but some carried little. Some patrons were looking to borrow equipment to be able to complete the ride. My seasoned friend Linda and her daughter came with a jacket tied to the saddle, compass, whistle, water, some energy bars at her side and a small medical kit in her saddle bag. Being a Mom and a seasoned rider, she had a few things to ensure a safe and enjoyable ride. What do you carry? On a day ride or hike? My spouse and I have been giving this a fresh look after hearing that some day rides may end in an overnight stay. We decided that while we were pretty well geared up when we went for longer stays in the mountains, our day rides were a bit unprepared. When deciding what to bring, you need to cover the basics.

do you need to stay reasonably safe, warm and dry? Your gear should cover ten areas for safety, survival and basic comfort: 1. Navigation (Map of the area and a compass) 2. Sun Protection (Sun Screen) 3. Insulation (Coat, Gloves, Hat) 4. Illumination (Flashlight) 5. First-aid supplies 6. Fire (Matches) 7. Repair kit and tools (Knife, Multi-tool) 8. Food 9. Hydration (Water bottle) 10. Emergency Shelter (Tarp, Reflective blanket) Next, ask yourself do you know how to use your equipment? For each of us this list will be a little different depending on our abilities and needs. When we ride with others, if we all carry a little, then together we have a good inventory of supplies. • Here are a few resources to learn more about what to carry: • www.backcountryhorse.com/education/resources/ • www.rei.com/learn/expert-advice/day-hiking-checklist. html • The Camper’s Pocket Handbook - A Backcountry Traveler’s Companion Paperback by John Goll While this writing is far from a complete guide, my hope is to make us all stop and plan before we head out. So get to planning and go out and enjoy our public lands. Happy Trails

2014 PNW O-Mok-See Snohomish County Western Games is proud to announce the 35th running of the 2014 PNW Championship O-Mok-See at the Evergreen State Fairgrounds in Monroe, Washington starting Friday, September 26 and running through Sunday, September 28.

Last year we had over 150 riders from Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Montana. With cash and prizes of over $12,000, including saddles for first place in each of the 6 age groups, it’s no wonder why so many top level
