Weather linked Equine Influenza spread New research has revealed how weather conditions can affect the spread of equine influenza virus. This new information will allow veterinarians to predict and control the spread of an outbreak more effectively. Speaking at the Australian Veterinary Association’s annual conference, Dr Navneet Dhand, from the Faculty of Veterinary Science at the University of Sydney, outlined the research that demonstrates how air temperature, humidity and wind velocity influence spread of the virus. The researchers analysed data from the 2007 horse flu outbreak in Australia together with data provided by the Australian Bureau of Meteorology for the same time period. “We discovered infection of horses was more likely on days when relative humidity was low and less likely on days when the maximum daily air temperature was between 20 and 25 degrees,” Dr Dhand said. “Horses on premises downwind of those on nearby infected

premises were more likely to catch the virus. “Infection rates were even higher on days when wind speeds were greater than 30 kilometres per hour, substantiating numerous anecdotal reports of the windborne spread of equine influenza. “The equine influenza outbreak in 2007 followed a breach in the

quarantine of infected imported horses. “Nearly 70,000 horses on over 9,000 premises in NSW and Queensland became affected during the outbreak. The control and eradication campaign cost in excess of $350 million. “The disease was eradicated within five months, mainly due to a complete ban on horses

being moved. “By having a better idea of how the disease spreads, our findings will help animal disease authorities reduce the duration and cost of outbreak management as well as mitigating the social impacts of the outbreak. “Although the study was limited to the equine influenza virus, it could have implications for understanding the spread of other influenza viruses, providing opportunities for collaborations between veterinary and human public health scientists.” The research was conducted by a team which also included Professor Michael Ward, Chair Veterinary Public Health, and Associate Professor Jenny-Ann Toribio, both from the University of Sydney, Dr Barbara Moloney from the NSW Department of Primary Industries and Dr Naomi Cogger from the Massey University’s Epicentre (NZ). The findings were published in PloS One, the Public Library of Science and can be viewed at www.plosone.org

The Horse Report

Ten steps for successful AI in horses By DAVID LOVELL BVSc Redlands Veterinary Clinic When it comes to Artificial Insemination , take steps to ensure its success. (1)Breed from the right mare. It makes good sense to improve your chances of success by picking a mare that is likely to have a very high chance of conceiving. Mares should be categorised into having either a very high, medium or poor potential for fertility and selected from accordingly. Sentiment is a poor basis for selection. (2)Use the best stallion It doesn't matter how fertile your mare is, if the semen is of poor quality it is probably not going to work. Check very carefully the previous breeding history and records of the stallion and see what guarantees the stud offers. (3) Utilise the best team It is nice and convenient to breed your mare at home in her own environment but it can mean that proper management is more difficult. Consigning your mare to a competent, professional breeding centre means she will be more closely monitored and more likely to be mated at the optimum time (4) Prepare your horse for the

breeding season. Ensure your mare is in optimum health and body condition. Also ensure that she is properly cycling before any though of breeding. This may mean putting her under lights, recording her oestrus cycle, or synchronising her cycles. A pre-season inspection and development of a proper management plan can be very beneficial. Remember, fertility is highest later in the breeding season. (5) Use the right type of semen. Whether you choose fresh, chilled, or frozen semen can have a very marked effect on fertility as each have differing levels of reproductive efficiency. It is very important to carefully evaluate all the relevant factors around the mare, stallion, and breeding centre when choosing which format to use

tion planned once the follicle grows to 35mm. Scanning is a lot more intense and critical for frozen semen as the timing of insemination is even more critical (7) Get your logistics right. Carefully plan beforehand so that you are certain that the ordering, collection, transport and delivery of fresh or chilled semen will be compatible with the product arriving at the mare in a timely manner. For frozen semen, ensure that the semen is on hand and that the storage and handling facilities are optimum.

(8) Avoid infection Attention to detail and meticulous cleanliness and hygiene is essential. Bacteria are always present in the reproductive tracts of both the mare and stallion and any opportunities for bacteria to grow and proliferate must be avoided. (6) Scan the mare properly Ensure you have properly planned Infection in the mare is disastrous. for the correct ultrasound/examina- Every time the mare is mated, an inflammatory response occurs and tion sequences.

tions, utilise post service treatments and managements if signs show excessive inflammation or infection. In particular, timely scanning prior to the next oestrus can help detect twins and most importantly, allow you to prepare properly for the next insemination if she comes back into heat. (10) Don’t rock the boat. Mother Nature is very clever. The survival instinct of the individual is greater than the need to reproduce. If the mare is placed under undue stress, fertility can be adversely affected. Ensure your mare has had time to become fully adapted to the management conditions she will be placed under when bred. Do not think she can suddenly be removed from a secure stable environment and "thrown" out in a herd in a paddock, and be expected to cycle properly. Similarly, if she has some problem or stressful ailment, she is not a good candidate. Horses that are in full work can be difficult to settle. It is far better to spell the horse in time for her to adapt if you are looking for the most fertile situation Remember the 5 Ps Proper Planning Prevents Poor Performance

Dental checks are vital for older horses By Dr SHANNON Lee BVSc MACVSc Eq Dent It has often been remarked “ no feet no horse” and it is equally true to say “no teeth no horse”. As horses are now living longer and as we have more and more geriatric horses, it is important to understand their dental needs. Horses have a different type of tooth to humans, one that is designed to wear down over time, so the teeth of horses have a life span and as horses reach their 20s and 30s, their teeth will begin to wear down. The surface that is then available for the horse to pick up food , chew and grind is often very poor, so one of the most important aspects of geriatric dental care is to ensure your horse has a good grinding surface going into old age. The wear that occurs is unlikely to be regular so overtime some teeth maybe very tall or very short compared to the teeth around them. This has flow-on effects for rest of the horse’s mouth and can cause difficulty with chewing and grinding. The most common disease affecting horses is periodontal disease (gum disease). Periodontal disease causes premature tooth loss, tooth mobility and pain and its effects are at their most devastating in older horses. Again the best treatment requires early diagnosis and intervention as well as regular dental checkups from your vet. As horses age, just like people, there are changes in their metabolism and their ability to store fat and maintain muscle changes. It is for this reason that older horses tend to be more seriously affected by dental disease than other age groups. They are operating on the limit of their ability to consume and digest food and so there is often no capacity to cope with changes caused by dental disease or pain. Despite this, any treatment of older horses needs to be conservative. The goal is to make them comfortable and make the most of the grinding surface they have left. Small changes may make a big difference to the comfort of your horse so vets generally recommend more frequent examinations for this age group ( at least

twice a year). It is important to remember that there are lots of causes of weight loss in older horses and for this reason your horse may need to undergo other testing or procedures to determine the cause or causes.

There are many causes of weight loss in older horses, including dental disease. Common tests your vet may wish to perform include blood tests, faecal egg counts, biopsies etc. Many older horses suffer from Cushings disease or hyperadrenocorticism. This disease is usually as a result of a benign tumour of the pituitary gland. Horses affected by Cushings often have a curly coat, suffer weight loss, have increased thirst and may have difficulty with wound healing. This is important because it means that if your older horses suffers from Cushings and has untreated dental disease, the wounds caused by that disease may be difficult to treat.

There is no cure for Cushings however medications are available that help with management of the symptoms. An example of a dental problem in a Cushings horse can be seen in the picture at the bottom. One of the first signs you might notice that your older horse has a dental problem is quidding, this is when a horse balls feed in its cheeks to protect itself from pain. If your horse quids, or has unpleasant breath, washes its feed in water or drops an excessive amount of feed, consult your vet. Older horses are more prone to developing calculus ( a mixture of bacteria, food and saliva) on their teeth and this should be removed on a regular basis. Your vet may also suggest applying an antibacterial solution to the teeth and even brushing them to prevent this build up and promote healthy gums. Recently a form of periodontal disease known as Equine Odontoclastic Tooth Resorption and Hyperceentosis ( EOTRH) has been identified.

Regular dental check-ups for older horses will help keep them in good health. It is an aggressive form of periodontal disease affecting older horses and no cure is available, however there is much your vet can do to prevent pain and suffering for an affected horse. So in conclusion, remember that dental care is a very important part of health care for all horses, but is particularly important for older horses. Schedule regular dental examinations for your horse and these should start early for best results.

Harden Pony Club member Natalie Blundell is on the verge of fulfilling a dream and has a horse called Algebra and some very supportive people to thank. Together (pictured) they have demonstrated incredible determination, perseverance and talent, whilst being surrounded and supported by a community that cares. Both of Nat's parents were members of the Harden Horse Trials and Pony Club, they passed down their love for horses to Nat at an early age. “I started at pony club when I was on the lead at around four-years-old,” Nat said. It was through this early involvement in Harden Pony Club that Nat developed a strong connection with her community, and also started to achieve success at various pony club events. “"I progressed through the grades of dressage, eventing and showjumping. I went to all three of these at State level with wins and placings,” she said. “I won the state pony club dressage championships in Griffith, and competed in the first National Pony Club championships held in Wagga. “It was brought to the attention of a couple from Harden, Phil and Mary Hockney that I had some talent and they wanted to help me out by buying me a horse that could take me to the Olympics.” Phil and Mary bought Nat a horse called Billy Bathgate and together they went on to win Australia's premier event, the inaugural Adelaide International Horse Trials in 1999. This event is the only 4 Star event in the Southern Hemisphere and for Nat her most memorable sporting achievement. In 1999 at 19 years of age, Natalie was in the front running for selection to the 2000 Olympic Australian Eventing Team. However, Billy sustained an injury just a few months out from the Games and was unable to recover. This is where Algebra comes in. “Algebra was bought by Julia McLean off the race track to be a hunter hack. He was a little bit naughty, so she sent him to Lizzy McRoberts of Bungadore to do some work with,” Nat said. “It was there they discovered he could jump. Julia decided that he clicked with me very well and decided to sponsor me with riding the horse." Nat and Algebra have been appointed to Equestrian Australia's National Elite Squad and the Shadow Team for the Olympics and now awaits the squad naming this month.

Paralympian equestrian team named Equestrian Australia (EA) has announced the riders of the four member Para-Equestrian team it has nominated to the Australian Paralympic Committee (APC) to represent Australia at the 2012 London Paralympic Games. “The nomination process began for our riders nine months ago and since then we’ve seen them improve on each occasion,” Equestrian Australia’s National Performance Director for ParaEquestrian Julia Battams said. Having competed as a teenager at the 2008 Beijing Paralympic Games, Grace Bowman, 22, from South Australia will be the veteran of the Aussie team. “I’ve very excited and very honoured that this is now my second time representing Australia at a Paralympic Games,” said Bowman. The youngest member of the team is Hannah Dodd, 20, from NSW. “I think riding into the arena for the first time in front of the massive crowd will be an aweinspiring feeling and I’m really looking forward to it,” said Dodd.

Joann Formosa was left speechless when she was told of her nomination. It’s been a lifelong goal of the 51-year-old Victorian to represent Australia. “Since I was a child it’s been a dream of mine to represent Australia. I was told that I would never ride again so to be at this level is just fantastic, Formosa said. For Rob Oakley, 50, of the ACT, making the team is only half the task. “There’s still plenty of work to do and I’m determined and ready to compete,” Oakley said. The Australian Paralympic Committee will formally announce the team on June 19.

Horse sports make use of new technology A new iphone app has been launched which allows horse riders to track their speed while they're competing. Speedcheck is targeted at the Olympic discipline of Eventing, but has the potential to be tailored to other horse related sports like endurance, showjumping and horseracing. Increasingly athletes and coaches in all sports are making use of emerging technologies to give themselves an edge. In the cross country phase of Eventing penalties apply for too fast or too slow, meaning a better informed rider has an obvious advantage. Event riders currently measure out the distance they have to travel while they walk the course. They calculate where they have to be at each minute interval in order to be travelling at their desired speed. Speedcheck does this for the rider. They simply set the required speed and the app calculates it for them. Speedcheck is the brainchild of Brisbane based company Nominate. Founding Director Lloyd Raleigh believes it also has the potential to improve the safety of the sport for riders still honing their skills. "Many young riders have no idea what speed they are supposed to be going and just go as fast as they can. This approach

is simply not safe, with many accidents in equestrian sports being attributable to excess speed. With this app, they can gauge the speed required for a safe round at any level. It's also great for professionals who want to record and playback their rounds," Mr Raleigh said. It offers professional riders the opportunity to better analyse their performance course by course, round by round, horse by horse - paving the way for improving training regimes and performance. The Speedcheck app measures the speed as the rider travels and has a built in GPS. The equivalent in a sports watch is likely to set a rider back a minimum of $400 dollars. For less than the cost of a takeaway pizza, the phone app is affordable for everyone from elite athletes to pony club riders. Mr Raleigh believes apps in sport will be the way of the future. "The internet was the big thing 10 years ago, but the ability to combine the internet with satellite technology and package it all together in a phone has made the smart phone a must have item all around the world," he said. Similar apps already exist in other sports like cycling, skiing and running. But none have the features which are specific to equestrian sports. In horseracing, GPS

- A new new app a p that lets ap let letss you you set set the the speed spee sp eed d you you want wa t to be travelling at and beeps to tell you if you are going too slow or too fast. - Never get time penalties on cross country again. - Never have to argue your time with timekeepers, this app records every movement, every speed, every second. - Record your training or competition sessions and analyze the data ggathered later. - Avoid paying big $$$ for expensive sports watches.

systems are being used but cost $4,000 and upwards per unit. There are around 6,000 active event riders registered with Equestrian Australia. That market is approximately 25,000 in the USA, with similar figures estimated for Europe. Speedcheck was officially launched at the Albury Wodonga International Horse Trials Event on Saturday 24 March. For more information go to www.competeeasy.com/speedcheck

Helping young riders on a path to success What makes a young rider successful in competitions? Some of the most successful young riders have been the product of parents who rode themselves and coach. Thus they are shaped in their riding style from an early age on a very regular basis. For the rest of the world who are not so fortunate, it usually takes a commitment to attend regular coaching. In the same way as aspiring ballerinas and gymnasts attend regular class to train the movements they have to perform, to shape and strengthen the necessary muscles - an aspiring young dressage rider needs regular feedback from a knowledgeable coach. The muscles and core strength needed to maintain a strong position as a rider are not shaped overnight. It needs many hours in the saddle with correct technique being used to enable the rider to sit quietly and in balance but at the same time be able to influence the horse and ride actively It is far easier to train a rider to use the correct technique than to undo bad habits that have become habitual. Once a habit is formed, it takes many repetitions and corrections by the coach to make a new reflex action involving correct technique to become established. The interschool equestrian scene in Queensland is very strong. This year the National Interschool Championships will be held in Toowoomba from October 2 to 5. This represents a tremendous opportunity for aspiring young riders to exploit the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;hometownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; advantage rather than travelling long distances to venues such as the Sydney International Equestrian Centre or Werribee in Melbourne with the inherent difficulties and problems that raises. One such rider hoping to make her mark at the championships is Anna MacMillan on her horse Le Moulin Rouge (known to his friends as Wags). Anna is coached on a regular basis by Karen Crommelin, a Toowoomba based, EA Level 2 dressage specialist coach. In three years under Karen's guidance, Anna and her horse

Aspiring young dressage riders can benefit from regular coaching which can develop correct technique. have gone from a novice/elementary level combination to winning her first Prix St Georges level test at an Interschool event. Some of her recent successes include: - Overall Champion Rider Queensland Interschool State Championships 2011 and awarded IQ secondary Rider of the year at the 2011 Equestrian Queensland awards night - Supreme Dressage Rider Darling Downs Downs Regional Interschool Championships - Represented Queensland at the Interschool Nationals for the past three years in both eventing and dressage Karen takes a keen interest in her studentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; competition program. She emphasises that success does not come from a quick coaching session the week before a major competition. Forward planning from the beginning of a competition year assists the rider to step up to the next level of competition successfully. She believes that regular coaching so that the basics of good riding and correct training of the horse are well established, lay the foundation for ultimate success in competition. Karen competes successfully herself from young horse classes through all levels of dressage up

to FEI and understands the systematic training of the horse and how this relates to the progression through the test levels. Just as the riders' musculature

and skill level including mental preparation and concentration need to be trained progressively the same can be said for the horse. The focus of her coaching is on correct rider position and an understanding and application of the aids in an effective way. Karen aims to train horses in accordance with the German training scale and encourages young riders to develop a respectful attitude to their horse as their partner in the sport. With these foundations young riders such as Anna and many others whom Karen has trained not only achieve their immediate goal of success in competition but develop a life long understanding of the beauty of the art/sport which is dressage. Karen Crommelin is an EA Level 2 dressage specialist coach, SSTA and D level dressage judge. She has been actively coaching since 1999.

Monty Roberts `The Man Who Listens to Horsesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Monty Roberts, known as the `Man Who Listens to Horsesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; has led an extraordinary life. An award-winning trainer of championship horses, best-selling author, Hollywood stunt man, foster dad to 47 children (in addition to three of his own) and creator of the world-renowned and revolutionary equine training technique known as Join-UpÂŽ, Monty Roberts could now, in his later years, be resting on his laurels, but that's not his style. If you go looking for Monty Roberts, you won't find him lounging in his favorite chair high up in the hills overlooking his horse training farm in the Santa Ynez Valley in California. The `Man Who Listens To Horsesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is more likely to be found somewhere on the globe continuing to spread his message of non-violence. You're more likely to find him speaking to youths in a juvenile detention facility, gentling his 15,000th horse at a demonstration, teaching his techniques to the growing number of students at his International Learning Center in California or advising executives at Fortune 500 companies. What makes Monty's message so compelling that everyone from the CIA to Volkswagen invite this cowboy to share his experiences with their executives and leaders? Monty says that his goal in life is â&#x20AC;&#x153;to leave the world a better place for horses and for people, tooâ&#x20AC;?. Monty first learned to listen to horses while observing wild mustangs in Nevada at the age of 13. Sent there to round up horses for the Salinas Rodeo Association's Wild Horse Race, he spent hours silently watching the feral horses interact with each other. Soon he realized that they used a discernable, effective and predictable body language to communicate, set boundaries, show fear and express annoyance, relaxation or affection. In that moment it changed his life, and the lives of horses and people forever. Monty understood that utilizing this silent language would allow training to commence in a much more effective and humane manner, encouraging true partnership between horses and humans. Later, he would name this

After this revelatory moment with the wild horses, Monty returned home to his family's riding school at the Salinas Rodeo Grounds in California. There, he had grown up watching his father `breakâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; horses using traditional methods involving pain, control, fear and coercion. Testing his new insights into the nature of horses, Monty tried out some of his new ideas and was promptly punished for challenging his father's traditional methods. Monty remained undeterred from his vision and later became a champion Western horseman. Hollywood hired him as a stand in rider and stunt double for stars such as Elizabeth Taylor in National Velvet and many other films. Monty knew that his future lay in working with horses, and he commenced an incredible career in Thoroughbred racing. Throughout the years he worked with many champions including the famed Alleged. In 1966 he opened a training facility, Flag Is Up Farms, in the Santa Ynez Valley in California. He and his wife, Pat, enjoyed success training Thoroughbreds, becoming the leading consigner of two-year-olds-in-training at the Hollywood Park Racetrack for 18 years. As the couple raised their own family of three, Pat and Monty also took in 47 foster children, many of whom still return to Flag Is Up Farms for visits.

The mis-use and best use of round yards By PAT PARELI Round corrals are like a doubleedged sword. A round corral can be a great place not only to teach horses, but also to teach people how to be savvy. But the challenge has always been knowing how to have polite and passive persistence in the proper position. In the round corral, it's easy for the human to be out of position by only a few inches. And by being out of position, they're pushing buttons on the horse they don't even know exist. This is why we don't start with the round corral. The On-Line skills we give people on a 12' and a 22' line teaches them where to be, when to be, why to be, and what to do when they get there. Where people often go wrong with the round corral is letting the horse go around and around and around in a circle until he either quits running and faces them, or using the round corral to exercise the excess energy out

of the horse. What I try to get people to understand is that if you exercise only the body, the mind will go to pot. However, if you exercise the mind and emotions, the body will follow. That's where the Seven Games come in. By playing the Seven Games with a horse, rather than just running him around in a circle, what happens is that the horse starts tuning in to the human. The secret is to use the round corral as a safety net so that the horse learns the principles of a classroom and how to interact with the human seven different ways. Basically, by just running the horse around in a circle, it becomes merely a physical act of getting rid of energy. One of the analogies I like to use is that if you took a bottle of milk with about three inches of cream on top, and if you wanted just the milk, the first thing you would do would be to pour the cream on the ground. You'd just waste the cream. That's what a lot of people do;

they waste the pent-up energy that horses have when they're ready to play. I prefer to use that energy (the cream) by playing the Seven Games - which to me is like saying to a kid: go out and run 10 laps, play basketball, dodgeball, volleyball or hopscotch. This gives kids on a playground something constructive to do. When they've got excess energy, take that energy and concentrate on these things. It's the same way with horses. When they have that exuberant energy, teach them to concentrate on you mentally, emotionally and physically. Use the Seven Games. Don't abuse the round corral, which can be a very good tool, by just running a horse around until he gives in or becomes exhausted.

"In a world that has shrunk to a 'global village,' it is important that mankind act as a responsible steward of creation-whether human or animal. Monty Roberts, in his life's work of perfecting communication without pain or fear, achieves this with respect and love for all creatures.
