OSPHOS clodronate injection Bisphosphonate For use in horses only Brief Summary For Full Prescribing Information see package insert CAUTION Federal USA law restricts this drug to use by or on the order of a licensed veterinarian DESCRIPTION Clodronate disodium is a non amino chlorocontaining bisphosphonate Chemically clodronate disodium is dichloromethylene diphosphonic acid disodium salt and is manufactured from the tetrahydrate form INDICATION For the control of clinical signs associated with navicular syndrome in horses CONTRAINDICATIONS Horses with hypersensitivity to clodronate disodium should not receive OSPHOS WARNINGS Do not use in horses intended for human consumption HUMAN WARNINGS Not for human use Keep this and all drugs out of the reach of children Consult a physician in case of accidental human exposure PRECAUTIONS As a class bisphosphonates may be associated with gastrointestinal and renal toxicity Sensitivity to drug associated adverse reactions varies with the individual patient Renal and gastrointestinal adverse reactions may be associated with plasma concentrations of the drug Bisphosphonates are excreted by the kidney therefore conditions causing renal impairment may increase plasma bisphosphonate concentrations resulting in an increased risk for adverse reactions Concurrent administration of other potentially nephrotoxic drugs should be approached with caution and renal function should be monitored Use of bisphosphonates in patients with conditions or diseases affecting renal function is not recommended Administration of bisphosphonates has been associated with abdominal pain colic discomfort and agitation in horses Clinical signs usually occur shortly after drug administration and may be associated with alterations in intestinal motility In horses treated with OSPHOS these clinical signs usually began within 2 hours of treatment Horses should be monitored for at least 2 hours following administration of OSPHOS Easily Administered OSPHOS controls the clinical signs associated with Navicular Syndrome via intramuscular injection Well Tolerated in clinical trials Proven Efficacy at 6 months post treatment No Reconstitution Required Learn more online www dechra us com www osphos com As with all drugs side effects may occur In field studies the most common side effects reported were signs of discomfort or nervousness colic and or pawing OSPHOS should not be used in pregnant or lactating mares or mares intended for breeding Use of OSPHOS in patients with conditions affecting renal function or mineral or electrolyte homeostasis is not recommended Refer to the prescribing information for complete details or visit www dechra us com or call 866 933 2472 CAUTION Federal law restricts this drug to use by or on the order of licensed veterinarian Freedom of Information Summary Original New Animal Drug Application NADA 141 427 for OSPHOS April 28 2014 Dechra Veterinary Products US and the Dechra D logo are registered trademarks of Dechra Pharmaceuticals PLC 2016 Dechra Ltd Bisphosphonates affect plasma concentrations of some minerals and electrolytes such as calcium magnesium and potassium immediately post treatment with effects lasting up to several hours Caution should be used when administering bisphosphonates to horses with conditions affecting mineral or electrolyte homeostasis e g hyperkalemic periodic paralysis hypocalcemia etc The safe use of OSPHOS has not been evaluated in horses less than 4 years of age The effect of bisphosphonates on the skeleton of growing horses has not been studied however bisphosphonates inhibit osteoclast activity which impacts bone turnover and may affect bone growth Bisphosphonates should not be used in pregnant or lactating mares or mares intended for breeding The safe use of OSPHOS has not been evaluated in breeding horses or pregnant or lactating mares Bisphosphonates are incorporated into the bone matrix from where they are gradually released over periods of months to years The extent of bisphosphonate incorporation into adult bone and hence the amount available for release back into the systemic circulation is directly related to the total dose and duration of bisphosphonate use Bisphosphonates have been shown to cause fetal developmental abnormalities in laboratory animals The uptake of bisphosphonates into fetal bone may be greater than into maternal bone creating a possible risk for skeletal or other abnormalities in the fetus Many drugs including bisphosphonates may be excreted in milk and may be absorbed by nursing animals Increased bone fragility has been observed in animals treated with bisphosphonates at high doses or for long periods of time Bisphosphonates inhibit bone resorption and decrease bone turnover which may lead to an inability to repair micro damage within the bone In humans atypical femur fractures have been reported in patients on long term bisphosphonate therapy however a causal relationship has not been established ADVERSE REACTIONS The most common adverse reactions reported in the field study were clinical signs of discomfort or nervousness colic and or pawing Other signs reported were lip licking yawning head shaking injection site swelling and hives pruritus Distributed by Dechra Veterinary Products 7015 College Boulevard Suite 525 Overland Park KS 66211 866

McLain Ward and HH Azur McLain Ward The Story Behind A World Champion By Esther Hahn Photos by Alden Corrigan Media and from the private collection of McLain Ward More and more as the sport has become more sophisticated more difficult with more facets to the operation the support teams are more and more essential The common denominator in the athletes who are consistently the best in this sport is the support team McLain Ward McLain and Lauren Ward

Page 12

I n the sport of show jumping very little can separate a win or a loss a fact that the newly minted 2017 Longines FEI World Cup Jumping Finals champion McLain Ward poignantly shared shortly after winning the title in April He finally had the title on his 17th appearance to add to an already illustrious career one that shows no signs of peaking yet And at first glance it s easy to take McLain s success for granted Born into an equestrian family to a father with exceptional foresight in the sport McLain was afforded all the opportunities to develop But at the core McLain s rise to the top is a simple combination of hard work and an amazing team Without these people on my team it s not possible McLain said More and more as the sport has become more sophisticated more difficult with more facets to the operation the support teams are more and more essential The common denominator in the athletes who are consistently the best in this sport is the support team Manager Lee McKeever and Rothchild Anyone can have one horse and come up to compete at the top But the ones who stand the test of time have the people behind them It s been difficult at times it s a family relationship But the good that has come of it has paid us back very well In the horse world it s a family affair with a family including the horses the grooms the vets the farriers the sponsors the team at large And McLain is his best because of those who surround him McLain and HH Azur McLain and his mother Kris Ward A nurtured nature Born in Brewster New York to horse professional parents Barney and Kris Ward McLain had the path opened to him at an early age to pick up the reins and ride His first ride was when he was six months old Despite the early start according to the champion rider he didn t show immediate talent in the saddle But for those who know McLain will acknowledge that perseverance is one of his strongest traits And by the age of 14 McLain set a record as the youngest rider to win both the United States Equestrian Team s Show Jumping Talent Derby and the USET equitation medal final in the same year A year after his double victories a New York Times article from November 1991 describes McLain as already suave at the usually awkward age of 16 By this point the young talent was also riding in grand prix classes while simultaneously competing

Page 13

in medal finals Barney trained his son in the show jumping ring while Paul Valliere helped prepare McLain for the equitation classes a partnership that began when McLain was only 7 years old This was also a time when McLain was competing against his own father Never pressured into riding and competing by his parents McLain made the leap of his own volition And once he made the decision to follow in Barney s footsteps he and his father mirrored each other in their individual competitive drive I was born into this sport I ve had the best training you can get and I guess it was inevitable that I could be successful if I even tried at all McLain said in the aforementioned The New York Times article When asked if this quote still holds true almost three decades later McLain replied I did have every opportunity and continued to have every opportunity which I m grateful for Sometimes I ve done my job well and some of the time I haven t done as well I keep fighting working hard and I try to be the best I can be at any given moment To win the World Cup is the culmination of all that work Dreams realized McLain s words from his teenage years have taken on a prescient meaning now studied in retrospect For the decade that followed he progressed from balancing grand prix classes with his equitation to dominating the regional and national grand prix circuits to competing in his first World Cup Final in 1995 which marked his official entry to the top of the sport In 1997 Ward contributed to the United States victory in the inaugural Samsung Nations Cup Series This began a long string of Ward s individual winning performances that set him up for his first Olympic team gold medal at the 2004 Athens Olympics riding Sapphire Finding this mare of a lifetime for McLain can be traced back to a friendship that Barney began shortly after McLain was born The first time I met Barney was in South Africa at a show there where both he and I rode in 1977 or 78 said Fran ois Mathy the Belgian show jumping Olympian We had invitations to compete and I met Barney there in Johannesburg Directly we had nice contact together and we talked about some horses and directly he bought two or three horses never seeing or trying them McLain Ward born into the sport One of the horses purchased met Barney at that year s World Cup Final where Barney competed the horse without ever riding him before the championship event s start The horses worked out well so we started to do business together added Fran ois We did a lot of business and I knew exactly what he needed Barney continued his practice of purchasing horses from Fran ois sight unseen Sapphire included With the horse it s never 100 percent but she had everything to be a really good horse Fran ois remembered Peter Leone first bought the horse because I told Peter that he can take her to the Olympics But he didn t sign the money or something like that so he didn t take the mare So I called Barney and said This horse is super And he bought her over the phone never seen her before Throughout the years of friendship with Barney Fran ois also watched McLain develop from riding ponies to winning at the grand prix level And as the younger Ward rose through the professional ranks as rider and trainer McLain continued the partnership with Fran ois that his father had established McLain Ward and Sapphire Retirement Ceremony 2012 Devon Horse Show McLain and father Barney Ward May June 2017 YOUR NEWS YOUR SPORT YOUR BUSINESS 11

It s not a specific horse but it s a good horse that McLain buys from me said Fran ois He just tries to buy a good jumper and the rest he can fix The first thing is the horse needs to have quality and it needs to have talent And he has the best team to take good care of the horses to make them in good form to keep them fresh A new era With Sapphire McLain won two Olympic team gold medals Athens in 2004 and Hong Kong in 2008 and a team silver at the World Equestrian Games in 2006 The chestnut Belgian Warmblood mare was a horse of a lifetime and when she retired in 2012 many wondered if another horse could ever take her place in McLain s string But instead of wondering Fran ois knew of just the mare although McLain didn t believe him at first The first time I saw Azur I saw her as a 5 year old when she showed in Belgium said Fran ois I always threw the idea of the mare to McLain but he would say she was a little green so I bought the mare myself and my rider showed her a few times A lot of people asked about her so I called McLain because I didn t want to sell Azur to somebody before he saw her again He came to Paris near the end of the 2014 season where she was jumping and he tried her I said This is the one you need now because I know Sapphire is retired and it s not so easy to find a horse like this McLain agreed and by the start of the 2015 season Fran ois and McLain s longtime owner Hunter Harrison and his Double H Farm co owned the mare now named HH Azur in partnership for McLain to compete With their collective sights set on the 2016 Rio Olympics the team brought home an Olympic team silver medal although an individual medal was out of the cards when the pair dropped an uncharacteristic rail in the final rounds of show jumping Redemption in a sense was not too far away when McLain and HH Azur clinched the title of Longines FEI World Cup Jumping Final champion on April 2 2017 with five step perfect rounds And as icing on the cake in the same week McLain took hold of the No 1 position in the Longines FEI World Rankings It s certainly a lot of pride McLain said about wearing the No 1 armband The No 1 ranking has never been a first and foremost goal for me Typically you need to show a little more than I would like to in order to be No 1 I have a little pride in becoming No 1 on my terms and by how I like to do the sport schedule wise When you have a horse like Azur it makes it easier because she s ready to play the game on the biggest days It s a great honor and I ll enjoy it while it lasts A legacy continued With an added highpoint to his career now experienced McLain moves forward competing on the international circuit while training and developing clients But it s not only about horses for McLain he s also a devoted husband to amateur show jumper Lauren and a loving father to their daughter Lilly Lauren and Lilly can often be spotted in the crowd at show jumping events cheering McLain on Watching toddler Lilly lead around a good natured pony around the family s Florida property during the 2017 winter season immediately triggers the idea that she too may dedicate her life in search of those horses of a lifetime on her own ride to the top I never understand when riders say I hope my kid doesn t ride I don t understand that McLain said Of course I hope 12 Lauren Ward and daughter Lilly supporting McLain in Florida 2016 she rides If she s interested in something else Lauren and I will be engaged and supportive of whatever that is but if she is interested in the horses that s the dream She loves the horses the animals it s a wonderful lifestyle She has the same passion for the sport that we have There s still more on the horizon for McLain to add to his expansive resume If luck is on their side he and the 11 year old HH Azur will contest at the FEI World Equestrian Games in 2018 and perhaps they ll have another shot to bring home the elusive individual gold medal at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics And soon Lilly will be in hot pursuit of breaking her father s records in a similar fashion to McLain surpassing Barney in the sport We re going to be around the corner for Tokyo before we blink said McLain That s the next major goal on the calendar with a few smaller ones along the way We try to manage HH Azur for the long term It s about these few big events When you have a horse with her talent and mind who is not only consistent but becoming more and more consistent you can really target these events and work backwards And it s certainly not going to come together without a plan The 2017 season even at its midpoint is a beautiful addition to the Ward family s story But there are still many more chapters to come with perhaps the best to be among them YOUR NEWS YOUR SPORT YOUR BUSINESS May June 2017

Coming home seven years later she started her own business ACP Enterprises Inc a program that focuses entirely on show jumping and began campaigning horses for Barb Ellison s Wild Turkey Farm a partnership that continues to evolve In the early days of working with Wild Turkey Farm horses I had the opportunity to ride a horse named Summer she was incredible one of the best Mandy rode Summer to two FEI World Cup Finals and to the PCHA Grand Prix Horse of the Year title Her appreciation for the opportunities she s earned for herself and the hard work she s been rewarded for has paid off as evidenced by a barn full of amazing horses This time last year I had mostly young horses which I was thoroughly enjoying I still have those horses But right now I have this whole beautiful string of talented horses I probably have the best overall string at one time that I ve ever had Sometimes I don t really believe that it s real I get on one horse and I think Okay that was a really great horse Then I get on another one and I m like Wow this one is really nice too I pinch myself all the time How is this real Having campaigned Wild Turkey Farm s stallions for more than a decade Mandy has started to notice similarities between the horses she has in her current string and the ones she s had previously like their sire and dam WT Ca Pow is special because I rode both his father and his mother To have ridden Chesapeake and done the Grand Prix with him and to then recognize the similarities that WT Ca Pow has with Chesapeake is quite interesting And then to find similarities between him and his mother Ultima V That to me is really special Knowing the equine family has a whole spark to it Being a self described sponge she is eager to learn whatever she can from anyone who has something they are willing to share My passion overall is really really well rounded horsemanship and that could be from a variety of disciplines I ve learned some of the most amazing things from cowboys I ve met along the way Always being ready to absorb things has just helped me so much I always want to learn more and do more and find it very fascinating that there are different methods to it all Mandy is also quick to sing praises of the horses she has been able to ride over the course of her career especially the ones that gave her the opportunity to continue growing as a rider I was fortunate enough as a kid to have nice horses along the way One of my last junior years that I was with Butch and Lu we got a jumper named Orbit and that horse was phenomenal I was super lucky to have been able to have him come into my life And then there is that amazing string of horses she currently has Milano for example has been a wonderful partner to grow with We ve been learning the two of us how to go faster which has been a bit of a process because he gets a little excited Your horse is really your partner not just a tool Her training philosophy circles around that belief in a very real way Each horse is an individual that needs coaching and patience Some days winning takes a back seat to the learning process I m a competitive person and I obviously love show jumping and the competitions and all that but that s not really what I m looking for out of it For me it s really the bond with horses If a young horse figures out something new and really excels that is winning to me not just the blue ribbons Beyond the riding and the showing and the training Mandy is a horseperson through and through Her love for the horses is the reason she loves the sport as much as she does She strongly emphasizes how important each individual horse is and how much she values the relationship she has with them The lifestyle that we lead can be very rewarding but it can also be a little bit tiring At the end of the day I ll stop and look at a horse or be out on the trail or just be being with the horses and that is why I do it I am sometimes speechless at just how fantastic horses are For the most part they are such gentle trusting souls that it s amazing that we can have the bond that we can with them Mandy and WT Ca Pow at HITS 2016 after winning the 7 year old jumpers Photo by Barbara Ellison

A t first glance one might think that only the most elite riders could benefit from the Carl Hester Dressage Symposium presented by SH Productions and held in Del Mar CA on April 8th and 9th The horses and riders were of such a high caliber the bar was set high for excellence Happily Hester s teaching was so comprehensive and presented in such a straightforward manner that there was something for everyone from beginning through advanced riders and horses 2 Riding with Parallel Hands Held Forward Many riders use what Hester called Handlebar Bending pushing the outside hand forward when making a turn It s a no Hester said you throw away the contact with the outside rein when you do so Instead keep your hands parallel When your hands are parallel it straightens the body he said Your hands are like torchlights shining down either side of the horse s neck Indeed Hester took time to review the basics with even the most skilled horses and riders Because without the basics we have nothing I came away inspired and determined to share ideas and exercises that you too can work on at home 1 Developing an Independent Seat An independent seat is the basis of truly effective elegant riding Everybody struggles with the independent seat Hester said But you can learn that To do so we must develop fitness balance and core strength To engage your core think belly button to spine Hester said This will help you to absorb the movement of the horse A supple rider will move with the horse A beautifully aligned upper body allows you to use your core more effectively and deepen your seat Imagine a magnet imbedded in the top of your helmet Hester advised Let it draw you up to the ceiling Strengthen your core and improve your balance by riding without stirrups Start with whichever gait you are most comfortable in Learn canter first if you re more comfortable Hester said then work up to trot You don t want to punish the horse Use out of the saddle exercises like balancing on a ball to further your core strength and balance Finally visualize really beautiful riders for a positive mental picture of what your position should look like Ride like you re dressed to go out Hester said Carl Hester Photo by Annan Hepner Phelps Media Group Nip Tuck Photo by Alden Corrigan Media 10 Ways to Improve Your Riding Carl Hester Dressage Symposium By Lauren Davis Baker

8 Improving Obedience with the Corner Exercise Hester noted that Terri Patton Rich s horse like many horses anticipated and tended to float through the corners Horses aren t stupid he said they reach the corner and know they re going to make a turn We work hard on the long side but on the short side it s so short we give up he said Keep the rhythm going through the corners Everything we do in a test comes out of a corner Hester had Terri ride down the long side and halt just before the corner Belissa was then asked to walk through the corner trot to the next corner halt then walk through the corner before resuming the trot This makes her wait for the rider Hester said It gets the horse obedient and on the aids It s also a great opportunity to tune up your transitions Later Terri asked the horse to halt in the corner and turn toward the wall to change direction before resuming the trot As Hester noted The turning point was the exercise in the corner It was a breakthrough The mare became more obedient This is a great exercise for a horse who likes to take charge 9 Canter Improves the Trot Hester encouraged riders to ask for trot canter transitions early in their rides The trot canter transition is the best transition to get them Nicholia Clarke and Quincy Photo by Annan Hepner Phelps Media Group to use their back he said Usually the trot improves after the canter The canter develops a little more push from behind Hester told Joseph Newcomb who was riding the four year old For Finland The gelding s trot visibly improved after the canter Once you press canter the horse needs to stay in it Hester said If your horse falls out of the canter you don t need to punish him but he needs to know he made a mistake and be corrected 10 You Can t Afford Not to be Doing Something Every 10m Even the highest level riders were reminded to keep riding You can t afford not to be doing something every 10 meters Hester said He encouraged Tiffany Mahoney to influence Ray Del Mundo in the canter more frequently Rather than letting the horse get long or lose straightness he asked the rider to keep communicating with her horse every 10 meters Hester helped every horse and rider end on a positive note usually with a bit of stretch at the trot and for the brave the canter Every ride ended with an encouraging Well done Thank you The audience responded warmly appreciative of the effort that had been shown and lessons learned Rebecca Rigdon and La Fariah Photo by Annan Hepner Phelps Media Group David Blake and Heide Spirit Photo by Annan Hepner Phelps Media Group Attendees went home inspired dreaming of riding their own horses just a bit better holding themselves to a higher standard Clinicians of Hester s caliber are well worth the time effort and expense to study with no matter your level of riding The emphasis on the basics and attention to detail is something we can all benefit from Terri Rocovich and Uiver Photo by Annan Hepner Phelps Media Group

How do you balance showing running your business and being a mom When Morgan and I first had kids we had a full time nanny Before we moved to Parkside we made the decision that we wanted to raise our own kids When we re not at shows one of us is always at the barn When the kids are in school we re both there and then one of us will come home and meet them at the bus and be at home with them When we go to shows we do have someone who helps us since they need to stay in school When they were little it was easier but now that they re older we have someone who comes and helps us out school is a big priority I am so grateful that I have Morgan I m not sure how I could do it without him How has riding changed since you became a parent Nora Thomas and Family Nora Thomas Parkside Stables Daughter Lil age 6 Son Harry age 9 My parents were always telling me you have to do what you love and you have to do it with your whole heart They sacrificed everything so that I could ride and taught me to work hard for what I want I m old school in the sense that my kids are going to have to work for whatever they want because I think then it means something Nora Thomas fell in love with horses when she was 3 years old From that point on she rode as much as possible picking up odd jobs as a braider when she was older helping out the video team at the shows and spending the rest of her time juggling her responsibilities as a working student with her own riding Despite the fact that she didn t come from a horse crazy family they supported her in her passion and did whatever they could to help her continue riding Nora is mother to two young children Harry age 9 and Lil age 6 Balancing parenting and riding is challenging but Nora has discovered that sharing her passion for riding with her children has been an incredible way to teach them valuable life lessons Do Harry and Lil ride or are they involved in other activities Harry is very into martial arts and there is so much discipline involved Right now he s a green belt and he wants to work his way to a black belt Lil does it too but she s so competitive that I think it s just because he does it It s pretty hilarious to watch them Harry isn t very into riding but he really likes going to the shows Lil is really into riding she ll ride whenever Some kids ride just because they want to be with their friends and some kids ride because they know somebody is watching Lil will ride just because she truly likes to ride And I think that s hopefully going to sustain her in the long term 42 The kids have given me a realistic balance I think you can get so wrapped up in the horse world and in what each horse is doing I think kids have given me a much better balance in life in general I don t really stress over the little things anymore Now riding has become my outlet I love my kids I love spending time with them and I love riding I actually appreciate riding more now It s more precious I m still competitive but I m not so centered over the competition part anymore I can let things go and I think I ve become a more well rounded person and I appreciate my time on horseback now more than I did before What is something you hope riding will teach your children What I hope I have done is shown them how passionately we work and how hard we work for what we love I just want to ingrain that in them I try to do that with everything With school if they re struggling I try to help them understand that it s a means to an end and that when you find what you love it will never seem like work That s what I hope riding will do for my relationship with them Shelley Campf Oz Incorporated Son Chad age 18 Son Blake age 12 There s nothing better in life than being a mom It s the most amazing thing I ve ever done and my only regret in life is that I didn t do it sooner I waited because the hurdles seemed so great I kept asking myself How am I going to do this How am I going to do this horse show And really you just figure it out My mom gave me the best piece of advice There s no good time to have a baby so you might as well just have one because there s no good time And there is no good time to have a baby But once you do it s the perfect time Always Nothing replaces the love that you have for your kids YOUR NEWS YOUR SPORT YOUR BUSINESS May June 2017

On May 14 2017 we will celebrate the most important women in our lives our mothers Whether your mom rode before or with you took you to lessons and shows supported your interest later in life or became the quintessential horse show mom this is the day where thanks are given for the sacrifices they made so we could chase our dreams Shelley with her son Blake Campf Photo by Cathrin Cammett Shelley grew up in Calgary riding and showing with her three sisters In 1990 Shelley and her husband Jeff started their business Oz Incorporated spending long hours at the barn relishing in their work When their first son was born in 1998 they condensed these long hours into a normal day and started spending more time showing in the Northwest wanting their family to have a home base Shelley was surprised to discover the different ways her life changed in the years since becoming a mom and in seeing how it has impacted her riding Do Chad and Blake ride Are they involved in other activities They both can ride But horses represent work to our kids it isn t a cool thing to them it s a thing that uses up our time I think part of it is that they re boys and they didn t get that horse bug that girls get They ve been around it so much and they ve listened to it enough that they know it When Blake was 2 years old he used to stand in the viewing area during lessons holding a riding crop and he would say Heels down Thumbs up Go forward and he would say it ad nauseam while we were teaching lessons that s how well he knew our jobs How do you balance showing running your business and being a mom I used to do hunters and jumpers and Jeff would do hunters and jumpers as well Now I mostly ride the hunters and Jeff rides the jumpers The horse show calendar in the Northwest has changed so it s alternates hunter shows and jumper shows This worked out really well for our family because if I had to be at a hunter show Jeff could be at home with the kids and vice versa We try to keep them in school as much as possible Spending time together as a family is very important to us We try to have a sit down dinner In honor of this day 3 professional horsewomen Nora Thomas Washington Shelley Campf Oregon and Hope Glynn California shared some of the ways their lives have changed since becoming parents offered their tips on balancing riding and parenting and discussed the influence their families have had on their passion for the sport If you grew up riding or adopted the sport later in life if you had parents who rode or who thought you were crazy if you have children who love riding or who have other interests balancing riding with being a mom may seem daunting These 3 women have found ways to pursue their passion while raising children finding happiness beyond what they expected along the way By Corie Townsend

every night as a family We reflect on everybody s day rather than running around from horse show to horse show Since they were little from January until March the kids went to Palm Springs with us We found a tutor down there and the kids would do their schoolwork online They both play soccer since that sport works well with the horse show calendar and they both play golf which they can do anywhere in the world We have a boat so we waterski and wakeboard and kayak as a family One of the reasons I started doing the shows in Wilsonville in 1992 was to help prevent my kids from living a nomadic life I wanted them to have a normal life and to have their group of friends at school and not just have their horse show friends I wanted them to have a normal sense of community When you re on the road all the time there isn t that You go from horse show to horse show and make friends all over the world but you don t have that home base How has riding changed since you became a parent Immediately after having babies I was much more cautious and more worried about getting hurt I was always worried about my kids not having a mother to look after them Prior to that I didn t think much of it because it just comes with the territory It was not a conscious decision It was just like all of a sudden I was nervous about this and nervous about that and then it dawned on me wait I m like this because I have a baby I thought it was a result of getting older and becoming more cautious Interestingly now that they re older I ve gone the other way again I m still careful from a horseman s standpoint but I don t worry about it like I did when they were younger because I know that they re going to be fine if something happens I thought that once I had kids that timidity and that worry wouldn t go away Has having children changed the way you teach After coming back to riding after having a baby I felt like an alien in my own tack I couldn t figure out how to sit I d gained weight I was off balance and it was really startling to me Being someone who essentially grew up riding it was really challenging for me to experience that But it made me a better teacher because I was able to better relate to people who had trouble learning the positions and the balance or ladies who picked up the sport later in life Hope Glynn Sonoma Valley Stables Daughter Avery age 12 Showing is a very time consuming business you re on the road a lot But not only do I get to travel with my daughter I get to compete with my daughter She enjoys being around animals with me The horse bond that we have is something that not many people have I m so happy that I got to have that bond with my Mom Hope Glynn grew up riding and showing with her mom They kept their horses in their backyard showed Welsh ponies up and down California and spent their weekends living in their motorhome horse trailer loaded up with gear Her daughter Avery definitely has the horse bug and loves going to shows with 44 Hope with her daughter Avery Glynn her parents Hope shared a little bit of insight on what it s like being a professional rider and trainer while also being a parent to a horse crazy kid Is Avery involved in other activities We make sure that she s involved in other things Right now she runs track and she s Vice President of her elementary school I don t think she d like to be involved in other sports but her father and I feel that it s a very important thing How do you balance showing running your business and being a mom Avery s Dad Ned doesn t ride competitively anymore so usually when I go ride the open days at the horse shows he stays with Avery and then she comes down to me on Thursday night and will stay with me through Sunday We re always there for her competitions I think we have an extra special bond with Avery because we do a sport together with her and I can definitely tell you that it keeps me as a cool mom for a little longer as a she enters her teen years since I have some street cred as a rider I ll take it as long as I can get it How have you been able to ride coach your clients and be a devoted parent at shows The way that we have it structured at shows right now is I ride during the week and then on the weekends I hand over the YOUR NEWS YOUR SPORT YOUR BUSINESS May June 2017

Hope Glynn Lake of Stars Turn in a Stellar Performance in the 50 000 USHJA International Hunter Derby at HITS Coachella By Corie Townsend A fter their spectacular performance in the USHJA International Hunter Derby at HITS Coachella it s safe to say that Hope Glynn and Lake of Stars aka Davey partnership has grown steadily since their first few trips due in large part to the support and encouragement of Sabrina Hellman Davey s owner I would like to think it was all skill but there was a lot of luck involved Sabrina is a really supportive of me as a trainer and in developing that horse it really does pay off The Derbies in California are really competitive Hope explains My original plan was to take two of the four high options Then I watched the first four riders go and take all of the high options I said to myself oh alright better get your big girl panties on and jump all the big jumps The truth is I think I had been second on the circuit six times in the hunter prix not that I was dwelling on that but I knew I needed to push the envelope to try to get the win or I need to risk having the rail because I need to step it up I ve been second too many times this circuit Sabrina had no idea that Hope was making new plans when she gave Hope her usual pre round encouragement I always say have fun that s the only input I give I don t have expectations for him or for Hope He jumped amazing He was ready As a rider I was really excited because I know the horse is that spectacular and he deserved a big win under his name I believe in him so much I was really happy because not only was Sabrina there but the horse got a win that he deserved in an International Derby which was a big deal against the best horses and riders Undeniably however Hope s work ethic and the influence her family has had on her riding has played a key role in how she works with her equine counterparts I think the greatest influence on my riding career was my mother When I grew up she was a real horseman We kept our horses at home I had to learn how to haul a trailer when I was 16 I cleaned stalls in the morning before I went to school I learned how to body clip I learned how to deal with colic pigeon fever you name it in my own barn Then when I was older my trainer Patty Ball taught me that if you want to be better you have to work harder and I do believe that There s usually something you can do to make yourself a better rider or to make your horse better 52 Hope Glynn and Lake of Stars Photo by ESI Photography for HITS Coachella Between Hope s own work ethic and drive to continually become better and Davey s own desire to please this dynamic duo is on the path toward achieving new heights and new successes in the coming years YOUR NEWS YOUR SPORT YOUR BUSINESS May June 2017

REPRODUCTIVE CONSIDERATIONS FOR MY HORSE DURING SHOW SEASON By Oakhurst Equine Veterinary Services M any questions arise during the beginning of the breeding and show season What do I do if I want to keep showing my mare but I also want to breed her Why is she acting so weird right now How can I control this behavior How long can she show and be pregnant All of these are great questions about your show and reproduction seasons Horses are what we call seasonally diestrus animals meaning they do not cycle in the winter They start to cycle in the spring around March and will stop again around November In early spring mares go through a transition from not having heat cycles to cycling about every 21 days During this transition period your mare can exhibit unusual estrus cycles and behavior This can also affect her performance in the show ring Estrus behavior caused by increasing estrogen levels near ovulation will cause mares to lean on other horses lift their tails and sometimes squat and urinate In between heat cycles and during pregnancy progesterone causes mares to be non receptive to other horses behavior in this period can include pinning their ears at and kicking at other horses In rare cases mares can have abnormalities or tumors that can cause stallion like behavior Another important factor to consider is gestation length Mares are pregnant for about 11 months We try to breed them in the spring so the foal will be born in the early spring the following year It can become more difficult to get mares pregnant as fall approaches and some mares may take more than one cycle to become pregnant so starting in early spring can be beneficial Additionally some disciplines have special classes for young horses in these cases being born early in the year may be advantageous Remember if you want to breed your mare earlier than spring she should be under lights for at least 60 days Breeding options for show mares First you have to know your breed standards and requirements for registering the foal For example if you wanted to register your Thoroughbred with the Jockey Club the mare can only be bred by live cover they will not accept artificial insemination AI or embryo transfer Other breeds such as quarter horses and warmbloods allow both AI and embryo transfer As you show your mare you may need access to veterinary care to determine when she can be bred to inseminate your mare and to check for pregnancy You can plan to breed your mare and continue to show her throughout the season Just take into consideration when the foal will be born and the length of show season In late pregnancy after seven to eight months your mare will not be able to compete to her full potential There are many options for breeding by artificial insemination Overall AI is safer for the mare and stallion can allow timed ovulation and decrease costs and other complications of shipping your mare to the stallion You can breed AI with fresh semen meaning the stallion is collected and the mare inseminated immediately afterwards on the same facility as the stallion This has the highest percentage of success The next option is fresh cooled semen which can be collected and shipped overnight to your mare And the third option is to use frozen semen Frozen semen has a lower insemination success rate with a 50 55 first cycle success and up to 70 80 seasonal pregnancy success rate while cooled semen generally has higher success rates Breeding with frozen semen is generally more labor intensive as well However MANY factors can affect pregnancy rates Some of these factors are whether your mare has had a foal and her age the timing of the insemination and the quality quantity and fertility of the semen to just name a few If you do not want your mare to be pregnant while she is showing then embryo transfer might be the best option for you This requires special planning a reproductive facility that provides this service and possibly buying or leasing recipient mares that will carry the foal to term Embryo transfer requires synchronizing the breeding cycles of your mare with that of the recipient mares Your mare will be bred and an embryo will be flushed out of the uterus 6 7days after ovulation and transferred into the recipient mare for her to carry to term This procedure however is not cheap nor is it foolproof Even with the best facilities the success rate of embryo transfer being successful and ending up with a live foal is only 2550 per cycle So be prepared to have to flush your mare multiple times in order to recover a viable embryo and successfully transfer it to the recipient mare However one advantage is you can potentially flush multiple embryos in one breeding season thereby potentially resulting in more foals if desired 64 YOUR NEWS YOUR SPORT YOUR BUSINESS May June 2017

How do I control her behavior during her heat cycles You have a few options for those mares that tend to be a little cranky during estrus Most of these options attempt to control her hormonal levels Because estrogen can cause some behaviors that are not wanted in the show ring the goal is to get her Progesterone levels up to simulate diestrus or pregnancy There are a few options 1 Altrenogest Regumate or generic This will need to be given daily by mouth Your mare will come into heat in 3 5 days once you stop this medication You must wear gloves when administering as it can be absorbed through your skin It is the best way to keep a mare out of heat We also use it to synchronize mares so they can cycle together when trying to time insemination or embryo transfer STUDENTS IN GRADES 6 12 TAKE THE REINS AND JOIN THE IEA TH A N N I V E R S A R Y 2002 2 Medroxyprogesterone Depo Provera or generic This is an intramuscular injection of essentially progesterone These drugs however may not necessarily keep you mare out of heat and may need to be injected every 3 4 weeks to maintain a steady state of progesterone in her system C 3 Marbles Yes inserting a marble into your mare s uterus can simulate pregnancy and the mare will start producing more progesterone This does not always work and some mares will expel the marble once they realize it is not an embryo This procedure must be done sterilely by a Veterinarian with a special sized marble Do not attempt this on your own M Y Teams are Forming in Washington state Contact Us Today CM MY CY CMY K All of these options are allowed under USEF medication guidelines You do not need to fill out a medication report on Altrenogest even if you are giving it daily And as long as you do not give an injection of medroxyprogesterone within 12 hours of showing you are within the USEF medication guidelines Most of these medications are short term and should not affect a horse that is planning to be bred the following season It may affect them in the current season if intending to breed shortly so check with your Veterinarian before giving any of these medications for showing purposes As a coach I feel incredibly lucky to work with an organization that offers young equestrians so many opportunities Our riders have developed such a strong sense of sportsmanship and horsemanship because of the ideologies and practices of the IEA Coach Chatham VA It s fun and challenging and there is no need for any rider to own a horse The IEA is available to public or private schools and barn teams The Oakhurst Equine Veterinary Services team of veterinarians collaborated on this article for Flying Changes Oakhurst Equine has been providing comprehensive veterinary care to equine athletes for over 20 years and offers a full range of services including reproduction lameness examinations state of the art diagnostics preventive care equine medicine and surgery and dentistry 24 7 care for routine and emergency needs is available by calling 503 554 0227 or online at www oakhurstequine com 2017 May June 2017 Riders in grades 6 12 can compete with teams in the Interscholastic Equestrian Association IEA School age equestrians with various levels of experience compete in Hunt Seat and Western disciplines throughout the school year Riders not only compete for individual points but for their team as well Many of our riders receive scholarships based on their performance throughout their IEA years Founded in 2002 the IEA has more than 13 500 riders on over 1 500 teams competing in hundreds of shows across the United States each year For more information please contact Jennifer Eaton IEA Membership Coordinator at 877 RIDE IEA 877 743 3432 or Jenn rideiea org Horses are provided to each rider at every event All mounts are selected by a draw Parents like that the IEA provides an affordable format for their child as he she builds riding skills YOUR NEWS YOUR SPORT YOUR BUSINESS 65

Stretch and loosen your horse with leg yields at the walk against the wall By Julie Ronning W hat it does I love this exercise because it is beneficial to horses of all ages and levels of training When done properly these leg yields accomplish several things while being low impact and easy on our horses bodies It is a wonderful warm up tool to help your horse loosen and stretch his her body to prepare for work It also teaches horses coordination through crossing and uncrossing both their front and hind legs Lastly I find it very helpful in teaching young horses or any horse for that matter about bending Julie Ronning How to do it Begin with your horse facing the wall about a meter away This space is important so that the horse does not feel trapped Ask your horse to yield from one leg keeping the horse s body nearly perpendicular to the wall After you get a few good steps stop and praise your horse then try it again Remember to stay weighted on your inside seat bone For instance if you are yielding away from your left leg your left seat bone will be weighted The exercise should be done very slowly with each walk step thoughtfully dictated With practice you will find your horse will be able to deepen the crossing of the legs as well as reach further to the side which means increased flexibility in the shoulders and hips leading to more expressive lateral movement Cazador is a 12 year old 4th level Andalusian cross gelding owned by Jill and Carol Jackson This picture illustrates hind leg crossing although for a horse of his schooling I could have asked for a deeper cross He is however soft and relaxed and bending nicely Note how I am sitting him squarely but with a clearly weighted right seat bone for values under 2637 12th Ct SW Olympia WA 98502 66 Harlow is my 4 year old Dutch Warmblood mare She is just learning the exercise in hand but note how she is already beginning to bend through her ample rib cage actively crossing her legs and increasing her shoulder flexibility YOUR NEWS YOUR SPORT YOUR BUSINESS May June 2017

Saddle Fit and Wide Horses By Jochen Schleese CMS CSFT CSE 2017 Saddlefit 4 Life All Rights Reserved O ne of the questions I am often asked by my female clients especially is can wide horses cause my hips to hurt The answer is yes but there is an easy solution Too many times the concept of twist of the saddle is misunderstood it is defined in saddler terms as being that part of the tree that the rider feels between the inner upper thighs As such the twist is absolutely instrumental in combatting the feel of being pulled apart at the hips You can have a very narrowly built horse and still have this feeling if you are riding in a saddle which has a twist that is simply too wide for the rider s conformation The tree shape and design is critical in determining the final fit of the saddle to both horse and rider everything else is just fluff As such the bottom of the tree should be made to accommodate the needs of the horse including panel shape and length gullet width and tree point position Crucial for the rider will be stirrup bar placement the twist the seat depth and the cantle height and position Therefore you can still have a tree built for a wider backed horse while still accommodating the needs of the rider with a narrow twist and thus avoiding that pulled apart feeling that riding a gender inappropriate saddle on such a wide horse usually brings with it 74 YOUR NEWS YOUR SPORT YOUR BUSINESS May June 2017

APRIL AD PLACED There are exceptions to every rule of course but most women will feel more comfortable riding with a narrower twist and extended stirrup bars The reasons for this are purely physiological and are actually quite logical when you think about them The hamstring and quadriceps muscle on female upper thighs are much rounder than a man s which means there is less space given between the upper inner thighs as shown in the picture depicting both male and female legs A man s quads and hamstrings on the other hand are much flatter and positioned more on the front and backs of the femur rather than being as round as the female s Consequently he will usually feel more comfortable riding in a wider twist since there is simply more room between the upper inner thigh In addition the length of the female upper leg is usually 1 2 longer than her lower leg measured hip to knee and knee to ankle vs a man s upper and lower legs which are usually more equal in length This means that already the natural position and inclination of the female s leg when she is sitting in the saddle is to hang forward beyond the perpendicular often putting her in a chair seat The reason for this position also has to do with several other facts that I won t go into detail in here but include ACCEPTING NEW FARRIER CLIENTS Over 10 years of experience including work with Dr Mark Revenaugh DVM Apprenticed with Joe McKee Dedicated to ongoing education References available 503 830 9580 Wilsonville Oregon a it hurts to sit on the pubic symphysis b the hip joints are articulated differently than a man s and thus automatically turn out the leg and c there is not enough support from behind to keep her sitting straight in the saddle The solution to assist in the position of the legs is to have extended or sometimes even extra extended stirrup bars which will pull the leg back underneath the rider and allow her to more easily stay in the shoulder hip heel plumb line With consideration given to especially the twist riding a widebacked horse should not cause issues that result in hip pain for the rider May June 2017 YOUR NEWS YOUR SPORT YOUR BUSINESS 75

with Amanda Wilgenburg L as judge The following day our second show at the same location will be judged by Anne Appleby R This is just the beginning of a packed show season with 8 shows and 1 Ride and Review planned for our members and horse community All the information about our shows and the Omnibus can be found on the website http www lpsdc com To help all our riders prepare for showing we held a Show Season Strategy Workshop with Jen Verharen This workshop focused on helping riders learn simple strategies for handling their stress and fears constructively to be able to focus and ride their best 24 participants learned new techniques for keeping cool under pressure from this talented presenter Focus on A LPSDC Horse and Rider Pair Last season Karen Walling and Arthur received top awards from both LPSDC ODS and also Washington State Horseman We want to share a little about this partnership through Karen s eyes I started riding Arthur in February of 2016 about 2 5 months after I had hip surgery which was the soonest my hip surgeon would clear me to do walk work and we quickly progressed from there Arthur belonged to a very good friend of mine that has been letting me use her property to keep my horses for about 4 years She had owned Arthur for 3 years when I purchased him from her in April of 2016 after having to put down my mare that I had only owned for about 18 months I had a lot of help from my Trainer at the time Linda Ketter of Yelm and I frequently cliniced with Kandis Horton of Port Orchard In 2016 we showed at all of the LPSDC shows at Training Level 2 and 3 We won LPSDC 2016 Training Level Adult Amateur HIgh Point and www OregonDressage com My most memorable show was the June show where Arthur was really peaking We received a 75 2 and a 73 4 at LPSDC in June Unfortunately he really seemed to start struggling after that show I was perplexed and tried a few things but the vets said he was just being a lazy pony which he really is but my gut feeling told me there was something more As the summer went on he just got lazier and lazier In August we showed at the Summervale Recognized Shows and received our 4 scores 2 66 and 2 69 necessary to qualify for the Regional Championships I was very excited but by September Arthur was really dragging his feet I knew I had to do more for him and had complete blood work done by Tacoma Equine The diagnosis Cushings I was very grateful to now know what was wrong and with a course of action had him working with more energy than I had experienced since I got him Arthur and I have been working hard on impulsion and lengthenings all winter This is one of Arthurs really weak spots along with counter canter which he hates He is built more for up and down not out but we are starting to see a little progress but it is not consistent He was good at Training Level but first level has some things that are hard and he does not like hard very much There is nothing spectacular about Arthur but he is reliable honest forgiving and steady You know what you are going to have at the show as it is the same thing you have at home I put a lot of focus on accuracy in the tests and between the accuracy and his steadiness we have done well so far I am always working to improve my riding balance and use of my aids and trying to help him get stronger so he can handle the increased requirements of first level impulsion and I know we need to up our game but we are slowly making progress For 2017 we plan on showing First Level at the League Shows with the hope of making the 2017 ODS League Championships Show and Training Level at the USEF USDF Recognized Shows with the hope of making the ODS Recognized Show Championships I got Arthur measured for his USEF Pony Card when we were at the Regional Championships in September he is only 13 3 hands and I joined the National Dressage Pony Cup and registered him with them I plan to show him in the National Dressage Pony Cup classes at the Champagne Classic at Donida in July It May 2017

Pacific Crest Trail Beauty etc and got my first horse when I was in my 20 s an untrained Arabian gelding I only rode for pleasure just trail riding Then I really got serious having a variety of horses usually 4 5 at a time until I was in my mid 30 s when I decided to start cutting I sold everything and got just one really good cutting horse with whom I had a lot of fun showing for about 8 years After that I stopped competing and did some trail riding until I went to the Dressage World Cup Finals in Las Vegas about 8 years ago and decided that was what I wanted to do ride dressage should be a lot of fun to show with other ponies The original long term plan was to ride Arthur only for about 3 years as I have a 2 year old Sport Pony Filly and I should be riding and starting to show her by then I planned this because I would prefer to have only one horse as would my non horsey husband We will just see how things work out I hope to have Arthur dabbling at 2nd Level by then I think it will be hard work but he should be able to do it A little background on me Having just come back from the World Cup Finals in Omaha Nebraska I couldn t be more excited about participating in all the shows our Club puts on and also going to several A shows in the area this season It is Karen s hard work and focus that has reaped the wonderful rewards that we all strive for while riding Her story is unique and yet in many ways similar to all of our LPSDC members Happy riding Sandra Schugren LPSDC I was a typical horse crazy kid I read all the important horse books My Friend Flicka Black Our first meeting of the year was held at Lillian Logan s barn in North Plains on March 11 2017 Future meetings will be held at Century Springs Farm in North Plains on the following dates in conjunction with our Ernst Herrmann clinics June 18 July 9 August 13 October 8 If you would like to ride in these clinics or would like more information contact Joyce Stride at 503 647 0168 for a ride time Auditors are always welcome at these clinics and we invite you to attend our chapter meetings which are preceded by potluck lunches at noon PCTC is pleased to announce that our Dressage Can Be Fun Show will be held October 21 22 2017 at the Yamhill County Fairgrounds in McMinnville Oregon Our new show manager will be Lillian Logan and the show secretary will be Marci Sanders Saturday will be a practice show day and Sunday will be an ODS League Show Suzanne Ronning will be our judge We hope you will add our show to your 2017 calendar For The New Rider Great used saddles for Dressage or Hunter Jumpers SSG Gloves for the Show Ring The Wahl Stable Pro Clipper Kit contains a durable clipper that quickly cleans up legs fetlocks and bridle paths The Stable Pro was designed to be powerful enough to handle all your clipping and trimming needs Durable enough to be impact resistant and balanced to minimize hand grip fatigue 99 99 www sidesaddletackshop weebly com 10414 NE Halsey Street Portland OR 97220 503 256 1964 or 888 694 3585 May 2017 www OregonDressage com 83

CLUB NEWS Woodbrook Hunt Club Lakewood WA w w w w o o d b ro o k h u n t c l u b c o m Huntsman Jenn Hansen s Report For most in the horse world gone are the years of spring conditioning summer showing fall finals and then winter rest One of the many challenges I love about hounds and hunting is the yearly cycle and the changes each of the four seasons brings to the hound s activities No matter how great a season hounds are having or how much we would all love to continue spending two days each week riding to hounds in the company of our good friends spring heralds the end of each hunt season The forests and prairies are coming alive with the scents of spring Wildflowers are in bloom coyote pups and bear cubs soon will be exploring their surroundings These rhythms are our heritage connecting fox hunters with nature and with those who hunted before us The way we hunt may evolve over time and sometimes the reasons but the change of seasons is a reminder that our pleasures are subservient to the natural world Hunting is both timeless and constantly marking of the passage of time One of its many pleasures is that it demands we be responsive to nature Change and rest are good for horses hounds and humans alike The days have become too warm for good scenting and wool coats so it is the time of year for older hounds to laze around and find sunny spots to nap for young entry to begin training and to prepare for hound shows For our trusty staff horses without whom we could not stay up with hounds it s time to pull their shoes and let them rest while enjoying lush spring grass 90th Anniversary WHC Hunt Ball A Smashing Success On March 18th a sold out crowd of members family and friends celebrated 90 years of foxhunting in the Pacific Northwest at the beautiful Tacoma Golf and Country Club in Lakewood The dress and decoration theme harkened back to the incorporation of the hunt club in 1926 and the crowd 90 dressed in all their 1920 s flapper dresses ties and tails and sat down to dinner at art deco inspired table decorations The Hunt Ball is the largest yearly fundraiser for WHC which is an all volunteer club run by a board of directors Foxhunting gifts many beautifully handmade or antique graced the silent auction tables and then a live auction featured great events like a training session at the WA State Horse Park with Olympian Todd Trewin a pristine vintage ski boat generously donated by Scott Goodrich a Downton Abbey Dinner Party complete with butlers and wait staff for 18 donated by Bruce and Andy Lorig as well as weekend packages in Wintrop and Vashon Island The club raised a record amount for the Hound Fund which subsidizes the operating costs of the club supplementing our revenue from membership and activities like the Hunter Trials and Hunter Pace Series Stokes Auction Group did a marvelous job of running the silent and live auctions and provided a great mix of 1920 s era and current dance music and the group danced the night away until after midnight Thanks to the entire Hunt Ball Committee of co chairs Debbie Flynn and Sandy Graf Sharon Scott Margo Forstrom Sara Griot Noreen Roster Cathy Elledge Melody Fleckenstein and Karin Williamson for a job very well done Woodbrook Foxhound Foundation a 501c3 Charitable Organization The other highlight of the Hunt Ball was our announcement of the establishment of the Woodbrook Foxhound Foundation Our club is able to fund our hunting activities through membership revenue but the costs of maintaining our 5 acre property with its clubhouse listed on the National Register of Historic Places kennels stabling arena and kennelman s cottage are considerable MFH Melody Fleckenstein introduced the foundation at the Hunt Ball with a slide show detailing the
