The Pacific Northwest Fjord Promotional Group The Pacific Northwest Fjord Promotional Group (PNFPG) was founded in the late 1980’s by a small group of Fjord horse owners to promote this unique breed of horse. Since then the club has grown in size and the number of Fjord horses in the Northwest has increased to well over a thousand registered horses. The Norwegian Fjord horse is one of the world’s oldest and purest breeds. Domesticated over 4,000 years ago, they are relatively small (13.2-14.2 hands) but a very strong and agile breed from the mountains of Western Norway. You may recognize these horses from the recent Disney movie “Frozen”. The Fjord horse is an intelligent and willing companion. They have a charming and gentle disposition. Their strong body and extraordinary power allows them to be used for most any discipline. Their docile nature makes them an excellent schooling horse for children and a friend to therapeutic riders. Fjords possess a presence about them that charms all who see them. This summer the PNFPG is excited to host the 29th International Fjord Horse Show August 26th-28th at the beautiful award winning Bonner County Fairgrounds in Sandpoint, ID. Every Fjord owner will tell you that the Fjord horse is a versatile breed. We are raffling off a new McCall saddle valued at over $3500. Tickets at the show are $5 each or 5 for $20.

Our 3 day event is filled with some of the many disciplines that the Fjord horse competes in around the world. We have English and Western riding; single, pair, four in hand and unique hitch driving; ridden and driven trail courses; as well as many fun gymkhana games. Our show has been held in Libby MT for the last 25 years. With the move to Sandpoint we hope to better serve our members as well as share these wonderful horses with more people. The public is welcome to come watch these wonderful horses and their owners do what they love. Our classes run from 9am to approximately 5pm Friday and Saturday and 9am to 12pm on Sunday. Friday August 26th we are excited to host a presentation by Bernice Ende the “Lady Long Rider” at 7pm in the grandstands. In 2003 Bernice retired from teaching dance and climbed into the saddle. Since then Bernice has ridden across the US and Canada with her Fjord horses, putting over 25,000 miles in the saddle! This presentation, as well as all 3 days of the show, are open and free of charge to the public. We want to share our love of the Norwegian Fjord horse with you. Please come and join us.

Ann Kirk The Value of the Head-Down Cue This month I would like to talk with you about the importance of the head-down cue when training our horses. It is one of the essential foundation blocks that is usually missed when working on good ground manners. I seldom find a horse, either through lessons or training, that has already been taught this valuable lesson. The number of issues you can improve with a great head-down cue are endless. For example, a solid head-down cue is the starting point to retrain a halter-puller. A horse that pulls back while tied is a horse that has not been taught to give to pressure on its head. It also is the cue to drop and refocus the emotions while ground working your horse or even on its back. Having a sure head-down cue is of great benefit when the farrier is doing his job as the horse will normally raise its head when it is going to struggle and dropping the head changes that thought. Teaching the head-down cue to the point that you can demand it, is a must for taking the struggle out of putting on the bridle. And the list goes on and on. If I had known as a kid, how easy it was to teach your horse to put its head down, it would have saved me and my sisters a lot of hassle. We used to bridle our horses in pairs. We would put the reins around the neck and then boost one up on the horse’s back, (usually me). Then the one on top crawled up the neck and held the headstall. The one on the ground would put the bit into the horse’s mouth and the one on top

My goal is to connect

you with your horse by teaching you sensible,

hands-on exercises that will reduce frustration

would then put the headstall over the ears. Funny but true. Another area where it would have helped was mounting. Our parents didn’t let us ride in a saddle until we were 13 years old. We rode out in the mountains so much, if we fell off, they wanted us all the way off; not hung up in the saddle. Well when we were little, mounting proposed a problem if there wasn’t a stump or something around to help us mount. So we figured out if the horse reached down to take a bite and we could jump on his neck, when he picked his head up, we could slid down onto the back. Worked great but you had to be patient and rather sneaky to time it just right. But if I had know about the head-down cue, it would have saved the struggle.

In a nutshell, a perfect head-down cue is a conditioned response to downward pressure by your hand, the halter or the bridle. I use it so often, especially for relaxing an emotional horse, that when I just start to touch the lead, they will drop the head. When taught thoroughly, your horse will even choose to drop its head on its own when it becomes upset. I believe it is important to understand conditioned response, for it is a principle foundational to truly training your horse at any level. A conditioned response is a cue that has been practiced so many times that the “conditioned response” replaces the natural response. One such example in human terms is the simple hand-shake. When someone I don’t know introduces himself to me, he usually walks up, tells me his name while extending his hand in greeting. I, in turn, extend my hand, grasp his and give it a welcoming shake. I do not have to think about it, it just happens as a normal response to the extended hand. This would be considered a conditioned response. I wasn’t born knowing it but, through conditioning, it has become a natural response. So let me teach you how to apply the conditioned response method in teaching the head-down cue to your horse. Whenever I work with a horse, I start first with the head. The way a horse lets me handle its head will tell me how it will feel about me handling its body. A horse that is afraid or resistant to my lessons will hold its head high, whereas a horse that is trusting will allow me to lower its head without resistance. So one of the first things I want to teach my horse before doing much else, is to drop its head on cue. I will begin with a halter and lead on the horse. Have the horse in a somewhat enclosed pen so you do not have to worry about the horse getting away from you. Take hold of the lead just below the snap and pull towards the ground. Put about 5 to 10 pounds of pressure on the lead. Put only the amount of pressure that you feel you could maintain for a length of time. Then wait. You are waiting for the horse to drop its head just a fraction and then release as quickly as you can. Pet and praise him and do it again. Don’t be surprised if the horse doesn’t respond correctly right away. Many horses have been taught to endure or even resist the pressure of the halter by many repetitions of being released while resisting, not giving. They may just ignore the pressure at first. Don’t release, just wait. They may lift their head higher to try to make you turn loose. Just match their pressure and wait. As soon as they drop their head some, even if it is still higher than when you started, release and

praise them. It is still considered a give in the right direction. There is a difference between a give to the pressure and a passive allowance of letting you pull their head to the ground. If they are just being passive, the head will go down slowly but you will still feel some pressure on the lead. Try to stabilize your hand at a certain point so you can feel the slack drop into the rope as the horse gives to the pressure. It is hard to explain the feeling but you will know it when it happens. It is a sudden, complete release of pressure. This is important because the give is an active participation in the exercise whereas the other is just a passive submission because nothing else is more important at the moment. When something else is going on, you will not be able to drop the horse’s head on command and gain the control you thought you had. At first, when I am teaching the horse to drop its head, I will allow it to raise its head every time I release. But, as the horse better understands the cue, I will allow less time between requests to lower his head until he learns to keep his head at a certain level all the time. With a horse that is sure its head has to be high, it can look like his head is on a yoyo string. I cue it to drop its head, release on the give, it raises its head and immediately I cue it to drop again. This can go on for several reps until the horse keeps its head down for a few seconds before raising it again. How does this relate to the conditioned response definition? Horses, by nature, want to keep their heads free and up if they are uncertain about anything. Having their heads caught and controlled is almost certain death in their “natural” thinking. If I condition my horse to drop its head on cue no matter what else is going on at the time, I can calm the horse down and know that it trusts me to lead. When you drop the head, you drop the emotions. A high headed horse is tense and “on the muscle”. To drop the head, it has to relax some muscles even if only for a moment. I want to use this cue so much that whenever the horse starts to get worried, all I have to do is reach for the halter and he will drop his head and relax. I will teach this lesson first with the pressure from the halter. Then I will improve it by doing it several different ways such as with my hand on the top of his head or when pulling on either side of the halter or straight down with the bridle reins or with the individual reins. I want any downward pressure to mean drop the head. It is also important to take your horse to different spots and practice because the change of locations will change the horse’s focus and emotions. Start in a comfortable place for the horse and take it farther away from that place or add more commotion as it gets better until you are certain the response will be there when you ask. Let me say that this lesson does not have to be perfect before you go on but be consistent whenever you do work with your horse. Don’t skip it because you have something else you would rather be doing. It never doesn’t matter to the horse. It does not take much for your horse to learn that it is the expected response whenever you are around and it will change the way he relates to you big time. Be safe and God Bless…….Ann For more information on Ann Kirk and her Sensible Horsemanship Programs, go to www.annkirk.com. And check out the Sensible Horsemanship DVDs now available!

Stomach Ulcers, What a Pain!

ag el e s s

Dr. Jake Lynch, DVM McKinlay Peters Equine Hospital


Stomach ulcers are a frequent problem in horses. In high-risk groups, such as Thoroughbred racehorses, the incidence can approach 90 percent. However, any horse may develop ulcers, and ulcers are very common in horses that are not in intense training. Why does there seem to be an epidemic of stomach ulcers? One common and Dr. Jake Lynch, DVM, McKinlay Peters Equine Hospital very plausible theory is that the current management of horses is at odds with how horses adapted to their natural environment. The close ancestors of the modern domesticated horse have been grazing grasslands for tens of millions of years. Most estimates put domestication of the modern horse around 6,000 years ago, and it has not been until very recently that a large number of horses have been kept confined for long periods of time. Horses on pasture will graze for about 17 hours a day. And unlike our stomachs, the horse stomach produces a relatively constant amount of gastric acid

whether they are eating or not. It is not hard to imagine why a confined horse fed only twice a day might be at a higher risk of developing ulcers. The horse stomach has a very unique anatomy. It has a non-glandular upper portion and a glandular lower portion. The line demarcating the two regions is known as the margoplicatus. The glandular region produces gastric acid to help breakdown feed and is similar to our stomachs. The non-glandular region is covered by tissue similar to that of the esophagus. The glandular portion produces an acidneutralizing buffer, mucus, and has a specialized blood flow that helps protect it from gastric acid. Unfortunately, the nonglandular portion lacks these protective mechanisms and is very prone to ulceration. Besides the already mentioned risk factor of infrequent feeding, many other factors increase the odds of ulceration. Exercise causes the more acidic contents of the lower part of the stomach to come in contact with the upper, non-glandular portion of the stomach that is less protected from acid exposure. High starch/grain diets increase the acidity of the stomach contents. Dehydration has also been associated with ulcers. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) such as phenylbutazone (bute), flunixin meglamine (Banamine®) and ketoprofen, inhibit the protective mechanisms of the

stomach. Stress, as in humans, is also a risk factor for ulcers in horses. Making management changes, transportation, and concurrent illness are all stressors that increase the chances for ulcer development. It is understandable to see why young horses in training or competition, being fed a high concentrate/ grain diet twice a day, and traveling to competition after competition, might be at high risk of gastric ulceration. Many horses that have ulcers show no observable signs of discomfort. Others may exhibit a wide range of signs from intermittent colic to subtle behavioral changes. Cribbing has also been associated with ulcers. More signs to watch for are poor appetite, poor performance, and poor body condition. Foals, in addition to the aforementioned signs, may also exhibit bruxism (teeth grinding) and lying in dorsal recumbency (on their back). The gold standard for the diagnosis of gastric ulcers is gastroscopy. This entails placing an endoscope into the stomach to directly observe the ulcers. Other tests such as a sucrose absorption test and occult fecal blood tests are less sensitive. The preferred treatment for gastric ulcers is omeprazole, which shuts down the cellular pumps that produce stomach acid. Gastrogard® is a special formulation of omeprazole that is well absorbed in the horse, and it is currently the only FDA approved form of omeprazole for the treatment of gastric ulcers in horses. Compounded versions of DD D Domeprazole D D have been found to be ineffective because they are not well absorbed. Ulcergard® is a lower dose formulation D D Gastrogard® D D D of made by the same company, and is used for the prevention of Road Deer Park, WA 99006ulcers. Sucralfate is an aluminum salt of

sucrose which acts to coat active areas of ulceration, and it is often used in conjunction with Gastrogard®. Other drugs such as ranitidine (Zantac®) and cimetidine (Tagamet®) are less effective. What can be done to prevent stomach ulcers? One of the most important things we can do is provide continual access to forage either with grazing on pasture or with the use of a slow-feeder. If your horse has been diagnosed with equine metabolic syndrome/EMS or is an “easy-keeper,” consult your veterinarian before providing fresh pasture. These horses are at risk for laminitis because of the high sugar content present in fresh grass particularly in the spring and fall. Slow-feeders limit how fast a horse can eat, thereby mimicking grazing. Slow-feeders are designed with small holes for horses to pull the feed through, and it is recommended to choose one without a metal grate. There have been instances of horses breaking their incisor teeth on these. A Nibblenet® is an example of a slow-feeder with a fabric mesh instead of a metal grate. Forage itself is very beneficial in reducing stomach acidity. Horses produce more saliva when eating forage than when eating concentrated feed, and the saliva helps to buffer the acid in the stomach. Because grain will increase the acidity of the stomach, decreasing it as much as possible will prove beneficial. Most of the senior feeds contain large amounts of beet pulp, and therefore, these should not be considered grains. It is okay to offer large quantities of complete senior feed if your elderly horse requires it to maintain adequate body condition. There are numerous supplements on the market that claim to treat or prevent ulcers. While they will likely do no harm, hard scientific data supporting their use is lacking. Preventing dehydration by providing fresh, clean water is important. Only use NSAIDS when they are medically necessary and recommended by your veterinarian. Limiting stress is important. We all know a few horses that are easily stressed and sometimes a bit neurotic. Consider having a barn and travel companion for them. For horses competing in events and that have been previously diagnosed and treated for ulcers, the use of Ulcergard® is recommended. Intense exercise is a risk factor for ulcers, but it is impractical to recommend that we stop competing on our horses for fear of ulcers. We can, however, mitigate the other risks factors, and do our part to keep our equine companions happy and healthy.

On The edge Of COmmOn SenSe by Baxter Black, DVM

Whoa, Mule! I finally collected enough first hand reports to answer the age-old question, “How do you stop a runaway mule?” Ace Reid said he had been invited to be the parade marshal in Uvalde. They sat him up in the seat of a good-sized freight wagon pulled by a team of big mules. Halfway through the parade the mules spooked and started galloping down the street! The driver looked at Ace, handed him the lines and jumped ship! Ace said they were headed straight for a tuba player and two drummers ridin’ drag in the Sabinal High School marching band! He was able to alter the trajectory just enough so that the mules swung toward the sidewalk. When the wagon tongue hit the light pole, they stopped dead in their tracks! Deanie and her husband Mike train horses up in the Yakima Valley. One afternoon they went down to move a set of heifers from the high school section into the next pasture. She was ridin’ a two year-old filly and Mike was puttin’ the fine-tuning on a new mule. Deanie got a head start and was ridin’ around the heifers when she saw Mike, well, actually heard Mike comin’! His

mule was runnin’ like a race horse! Mike’s ears were blowed flat against his head and he’d applied one of his ol’ trainer’s tricks to gain control. He had pulled that mule’s head all the way back around ‘til his nose was in Mike’s left stirrup! Deanie watched as the mounted cartoonists slowed to a bangin’ trot and crossed the school house playground! She could hear Mike shouting instructions as they ran the obstacle course of sandboxes, teeter totters and jungle gyms! How they made it lengthwise through the swing set without strangling Mike is a miracle! The mules, still jerked into a “U” rebroke into a gallop, ran straight through the heifers and scattered ‘em like balls on the break! Deanie swung to get outta their way but the mule rear-ended her at full speed! Stopped him in his tracks! Out in California, Uncle Jack has a mule on his place that he called Son of the San Joaquin. Lon insisted on ridin’ him in spite of Jack’s precautions. He watched Lon lope his mule up the road but it wasn’t long ‘til he heard the sound of pounding hooves! Over his shoulder Jack saw Lon shoot past him! They were kicked into overdrive in spite of the fact that Lon had the mule’s head pulled clean back to his boot top! The road turned right. The mule never noticed. He ran smack dab, flat into an orange tree! From Jack’s vantage point, it looked like the orange tree had been struck by lightening! A terrible crashing sound ensued as Lon flew off the mule and shot through the branches like a six-foot smoked salmon fired from a battleship! Did it stop the mule? You bet, but they say you can still see pieces of Lon’s hat and shirt and glasses embedded in the bark. www.baxterblack.com

into that schedule; it is a wonderful bonding experience. We each have to decide how we like to spend our spare time. I, like many others, like to spend it looking at the many trails we have available to us. We as BCH members will be out clearing the trails. After some of the storms we had earlier this year, I am sure there are a lot of blow downs and other things blocking the trails. Are you ready to go out and hit the trail? Speaking of trails, are you looking for a place to ride? Do any of these names mean anything to you? Columbia Plateau Trail State Park, Fishtrap Recreation Area, Heyburn State Park, Liberty Lake County Park, Pend Oreille County Park or Slavin Conservation Area. These are some of the areas available to ride within 50 miles of Spokane. Would you be willing to drive up to 100 miles to ride? Most of us are. Have you heard of Abercrombie/Hooknose Mountain, Asotin Creek, Escure Ranch, Gypsy Meadows or Lakeview Ranch? These are some places available within a couple of hours drive. Information on the areas is available at your local BCH chapter. The Ponderosa Chapter is planning our annual fall fun ride and Scavenger Hunt fundraiser this September at Riverside State Park Equestrian Area. Pre-registration for this event is required, and more information and registration can be found by visiting www.pbchw.com or by emailing kcarmichael2225@ gmail.com. Join us soon! Contact me at PonderosaBCH@aol.com for more information on both chapters.
