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

USHJA International Hunter Derby Program Enhancements Coming in 2018 Star System ranks derbies and Hunt and Go offers new twist on the traditional derby format At the 2017 USHJA International Hunter Derby Championship Welcome Party on Wednesday August 16 the USHJA announced that in 2018 the program which has played an integral role in revitalizing the Hunter discipline will be adding two new components a star ranking system and a new format option the Derby Hunt and Go We ve heard from members that they want to know what to expect from an International Hunter Derby said Ron Danta chair of the International Hunter Derby and Incentive Task Force The star system does just that It tells you what sort of course you can expect how high will the fences be how challenging will it be It isn t limited based on prize money though so you could easily have a 50 000 One Star International Hunter Derby We did this to provide flexibility to show managers to give their exhibitors what they want the remainder of the course may be higher and must offer a minimum of two high options set at 3 9 4 3 Managers are encouraged to allow competitors to hack and hand walk in the ring prior to the Classic Round Arenas must be a minimum of 28 000 square feet The competition will be judged by a minimum of two judges in separate places giving separate scores The new International Hunter Derby Star System is designed to categorize derbies into three levels starting at a One Star and going up to a Three Star Derby A Three Star Derby Classic Round will have at least 100 000 in prize money The Classic Round will have at least 20 percent of the course set at 3 9 while the remainder of the course may be higher and must offer four high options set at 4 4 9 The Three Star Handy Round must have at least 20 percent of the course set at 3 9 while the remainder of the course may be higher and must offer three to four high option fences set at 4 4 9 A One Star Derby will offer a minimum of 10 000 in prize money The Classic Round will have at least 40 percent of the course set at 3 6 while the remainder of the course may be higher and must offer a minimum of two high options set at 3 9 4 3 A OneStar Derby Handy Round must have at least 60 percent of the course set at 3 6 while 503 663 1515 ColumbiaEquine com Columbia Equine Hospital Technology Experience Compassion Columbia Equine Hospital offers a full range of ambulatory in clinic and referral services Your equine athlete or companion will receive quality care from our expert team at our state of the art equine hospital or at your farm We are please to announce that Christy Sandquist DVM will be joining our team this month Scott W Hansen DVM Megan Rioux Forker DVM CVA Greg Schmid DVM Christy Sandquist DVM David Klugh DVM FAVD 27841 SE Orient Dr Gresham OR 97080 6 A Two Star Derby will offer more than 10 000 in prize money The Classic Round will have at least 30 percent of the course set at 3 6 while the remainder of the course may be higher and must offer four high options set at 4 4 6 A Two Star Derby Handy Round must have at least 30 percent of the course set at 3 6 while the remainder of the course may be higher and must offer a minimum of three high options set at 4 4 6 For both Two and Three Star Derbies it is the sole discretion of the manager to permit hacking or hand walking in the ring and the competition arena must be a minimum of 33 600 square feet There will be a minimum of two judging panels each with two judges in separate places giving separate scores Also in 2018 exhibitors will have the opportunity to try the Derby Hunt and Go which offers riders the Derby experience in a shortened format The Hunt and Go concept is something the task force has talked about since the beginning and we re really eager to see it in place said Danta Again we really think about these programs from the manager s perspective so they can produce them in a way that works for their exhibitors In that vein we ve built flexibility into this concept and we look forward to it sparking new energy around the derbies which have been so beneficial to the Hunter discipline In the Hunt and Go exhibitors will complete a typical Classic Hunter Round and then immediately begin a Handy Hunter Round without exiting the arena Competition managers will have the option of adding an additional separate Handy Round which would bring the top 4 6 horses for a final round One of the biggest advantages with the Hunt and Go is that for horses or riders who haven t had an opportunity to the handy round maybe because they re young or new to the derbies they now get to try it out continued Danta It also adds a new level of excitement similar to a Power and Speed class in the Jumpers The Star System and Hunt and Go opportunities will be in effect for the 2018 competition year Click here for the updated 2018 Derby Specifications that provide more information about these new program elements The USHJA

T he name John French and the phrase Hunter champion are synonymous With a calm cool and collected riding style and buoyed by his uncanny ability to create precise and rhythmic rounds French has captured the title of World Champion Hunter Rider four times in his career and was the winner of the inaugural United States Hunter Jumper Association International Hunter Derby Finals in 2009 riding the flashy gray gelding Rumba As much as French holds court in the Hunter ring he also has extensive experience in international show jumping In the years 2003 and 2004 French competed on multiple FEI Nations Cup teams across Europe for the United States and at the FEI World Cup Jumping Final before being named as a second alternate for the 2004 Athens Olympics But beyond what he does in the saddle at his core French is a horseman He s the first one at the barn and the last one to leave And during his 35 years and counting in the industry he s never shied away from the challenge of change His most recent leap of faith in himself and in his horsemanship has led him to relocate his Waldenbrook Farm from Woodside California to Templeton a few hours south on Highway 101 John French and Millenium 2004 Olympic Trials on Millennium by Zuma Press Inc I m not sure if I have more than five years of showing left French said Probably in five years I ll still be riding but maybe not showing as much I want to start focusing on training an upand coming rider to ride for me and coaching I think it s difficult to do both That s why I want to do this for my next five years and enjoy finishing up my riding years The move signals a new era for French one that is focused on training and competing young horses and on buying and selling top talent It s seemingly the natural culmination for the East Coast native turned international competitor And just like his lofty gap distances to substantial Derby obstacles his next steps outside of the ring will surely be thrilling ones to watch Maryland beginnings French grew up in horse country in Maryland right around the Green Spring Valley where the Maryland Hunt Cup has operated for generations His father Bob was a schoolteacher and his mother Jill was a horse professional who would eventually manage the Columbia Horse Center in Columbia Maryland I think it was just riding cross country me and my dog and going on the trails French said in regards to how he fell in love with riding My dog would follow me over the jumps I d just ride over to my friend s house and we d go on a trail together Nowadays you don t just send your kids off he noted People are so afraid of something happening but back then my mom was just like Yeah go ahead And we were like 10 years old riding half an hour away We had so much freedom back then Although his mom taught lessons and took clients Fox Hunting Eventing and to a handful of shows French s A circuit experience in his junior years was limited Back then I didn t think so much about getting into my mental game and trying to get in the zone he revealed Back then I was sort of the underdog growing up so I was always out just trying to prove myself I think when you become a professional then there s more pressure people are paying you to do it and expecting you to do well That almost puts more pressure on you French felt the shift a when he turned 18 taking a gap year prior to attending college to try his hand at riding as a professional It wasn t soon after that he knew he wouldn t go back to school While his mother supported the decision his father a schoolteacher thought school was very important and would have liked French to have continued college But French followed his heart and when he launched his own business his father helped with the name referring to a favorite book Walden Pond My mother being from England had a very good work ethic said French She was very big on horsemanship because over in England to be a trainer you have to be certified The care and management of horses she taught me so much in that respect Big breaks When first trying his hand in the horse industry French showed a natural ability to develop prospects into champions When I was maybe 20 years old I had a horse and I called him Stanley he said My employer Sara Secor had bought him for only 500 because she wanted him to be this fancy Thorough

bred s babysitter But then I saw that Stanley moved really well so I started riding him cross country and did some Hunter Trials with him Then I ended up showing him and he was the Virginia Horse Show Association s First Year Green Champion of the Year and he won the Zone Then I found someone to buy him when I moved to New Jersey and he was Second Year Champion in Zone 2 in the New York and New Jersey areas French s winning ways soon caught the attention of both Coasts and an opportunity soon came calling from Northern California Pat Warren and her Four Winds Farm were in search of a new trainer and she reached out to French I had the opportunity to work out of her barn for 14 years French revealed pinpointing the time as the turning point for his career Even when she moved to Arizona she left the barn but she said you could still stay here and run your business out of Four Winds Farm Rumba John French Tish Quirk She really gave me the opportunity to come out to California I had no plans of ever coming out here Right away she bought me a horse Even before I moved she bought me a horse and I was grand champion with her horse Double Big at Harrisburg She helped me jumpstart my career Thoroughbreds were the predominant breed in the Hunter Jumper disciplines at the time French was starting out on his own and when he moved to the Bay Area he rode another Thoroughbred Onwego from a fresh off the track horse to a winner at Indoors in the First Years And while the breed has changed from Thoroughbred to Warmblood French s favorite aspect to the business has remained the same That s what I like doing the most finding these ones he stated Sometimes maybe they ve already started or some of them haven t even done anything yet But I prefer that to buying the top one For me maybe it s how I grew up to make them up and turn them into something French applied the same model in his approach to the Show Jumping arena Interestingly French revealed his once in alifetime horse to be his Jumper Millennium because he was a horse that French started from the beginning In contrast the September October 2017 well known Rumba albeit a wonderful amazing horse had already found some prior success with rider Erin Duffy With Rumba it wasn t like a horse that I had started whereas Millennium I found him in the schooling Jumpers French explained I wasn t really doing the Jumpers I had done some as a junior but I hadn t really done Jumpers for a long time so for me to bring him along and to get as far as I did in the Jumper ring I felt as though I had a special connection with that horse A new domain As shown from French s foray into the Jumpers he s not afraid of change So while many others dream but never do he set out to make changes when his original model of a largely client based show barn was no longer his vision for his business The move is something I ve been wanting to do for a long time he said I wanted to move to a quieter area where I could have some horse property and just a little bit of a more relaxing area not only for me but for the horses as well I wanted to be able to spend more time training my own horses and to bring along horses for other people And the place where I am Templeton Farms really allows me to do that It s just a great place for really young horses with the arenas the trails and the www TheCompetitiveEquestrian com 13

grass turnouts they can go out for hours each day It s beautiful in the Bay Area but people don t have the land it s too valuable I just wanted to find a place to bring along young horses French knew he needed to pivot after he realized that after long weeks on the road at shows he d return to his barn to then coach clients for the entirety of the days at home which wouldn t allow him the chance to ride his horses and to know them even better In other sports like basketball and football there s the coach and the people who play he said But the people who play aren t coaching at the same time Once you re not riding you learn so much as far as how to become a better coach It s when you can step away and that s what you re focusing on and I m looking forward to concentrating on that But I want a few more years of still riding To showcase an example of a master trainer French pointed to equestrian coach Bernie Traurig I have the most respect for him French said of Traurig He taught me the most He s the best trainer I ve ever worked with he s a real horseman He can not only ride Hunters he s an incredible Jumper rider did Eventing did dressage and now he s still dedicated to teaching and doing his EquestrianCoach com He s always trying to learn and so many times we would just watch videos and slow them down and look at a person s position and this part of the take off and this part he s just a master I must say Templeton Farms Alden Corrigan Media Taking from Traurig s page French also tries to constantly learn from his horses and from his fellow riders I m always watching people s different styles French said Even some of the up and coming riders like Tori Colvin and Augusta Iwasaki I am fascinated by the way Augusta rides and the calmness that she has I ll ask her what is she thinking about when she goes into the ring and the fact that she rides with no doubt in her mind no fear Last week her father told her to do some crazy turn in the handy and I was thinking I would never do that that looks crazy And she goes I ll give it a go When French was younger he would watch champion rider Patty Stovel He and his friends at the barn would also try to emulate top riders jumping styles Growing up we would imitate other riders as kids pretending to ride them I used to have the ability to copy other styles Who knows Maybe now some people are trying to copy my ducking on the side style he added laughing The French connection There s more to copy from French aside from his unique two point like his finesse at catch riding or his ability to coax a beautiful jump out of nearly any horse I think because even as a kid I grew up riding different horses at the barn he revealed as the basis for his catch riding skillfulness

Page 17

At the Columbia Horse Center there were like 80 horses there so if a boarder would have a horse I would ask if I could show it and I d see how far I could get with that horse It s fun for me to get on a horse and see how much I can figure out in a short amount of time he noted I ve ridden so many that I can get on one and think Oh this one feels like this other horse so I have to ride it like that horse Its kind of fun just playing around with it And when it comes to his signature gap distance to the jump French explained that he tries to leave a little longer to get a slow high jump Everyone says it s a fine line between brilliant and dangerous he said Sometimes you get the one that doesn t turn out so good It might take a while for a horse to get used to it but I sort of trust them that they re going to leave I don t get worried and hurry them After a while they re not worried either For all the years that French has held a front row seat to the Hunter industry he isn t one to skirt opportunities to give back to a sport that s given him fulfillment for his entire life I think everyone that s been in the industry for a while should give back to the industry and do a little bit of judging he said when asked about his recent licensing A lot of time there are judges that haven t been in the industry for a long time and they are judging It s good to have people who are current and are showing as judges I could sit there all day and it doesn t bore me Maybe it s because as a kid my mom would just take me to the show and she d be schooling all day and I d sit in the stands and try to count the last three strides You know One two three I just started judging but I want to do a little bit more Center Court John French Alden Corrigan Media French is also speaking with Linda Starkman the owner of the Paso Robles Horse Park about doing clinics for the kids in the area and supporting a U S Pony Club on the grounds The fact is that I ve been doing it for this long and I m still enjoying it it s something that I love to do he said about his life with horses Clean changes Approaching French can feel intimidating At a show he s hopping off one horse and onto another mentally preparing for his rounds ahead And when speaking with him he s soft spoken and thoughtful with his responses not afraid to take long pauses But it quickly becomes apparent that he has an incredible sense of humor and is a treasure of the industry s best kept stories and secrets He s also someone that realizes that while the biggest rush for him in riding comes after completing a clear round over a big course it is the challenge to his signature calm cool style that he finds rewarding September October 2017 The nerves before a Jumper round are a bit more than I m used to it s like Oh my gosh this is a little too hyper for me I have to get hyped up and go fast he said So while many would wonder why he would leave the international Jumper path or the client based show barn behind French makes it clear that he continues to live by the best advice he s ever received Try to find out what in life makes you happy When I first started my training business I would try so hard to make people happy I would want my clients to have the best possible day and if something went wrong it would really affect me I think I ve realized you can t make everyone happy But if you can find what makes you happy then everything transfers over Now happily settled in Central California alongside Carlos Sosa his partner of 16 years the couple is finding their next period of happiness by balancing life with the horses with along with enjoying so many places and things to do in their new area www TheCompetitiveEquestrian com 15

Getting to Know KindredBio Through the Eyes of Co Founder Denise Bevers D enise Bevers is the Co Founder and Chief Operating Officer of KindredBio and an expert in clinical operations medical affairs and scientific communications Denise has over 25 years of pharmaceutical and research experience and has managed dozens of products and development programs from Phase I through Phase IV She was previously at Elan Pharmaceuticals Scripps Clinic and Research Foundation Quintiles and SkyePharma Most recently she was President and Founding Partner of SD Scientific a full service medical affairs and communications company In her spare time she and her husband Lon enjoy traveling music and theater Although in between horses at the moment they are pet parents to Betty a Border Collie and two rescue cats Gladys and Glover What is KindredBio At KindredBio our goal is to bring the very best science and medicine to our animal companions As one of the first veterinary biotech companies in the world we develop breakthrough medications for dogs cats and horses KindredBio s mission is to bring to our animal Denise Bevers KindredBio Founder and Chief Operating Officer Westway Studio family members the same kind of innovative breakthrough medicines that are available to humans Our core strategy is to leverage the billions of dollars that have been invested in human drug development by modifying improving and repurposing pre existing drugs and targets that have already proven to be safe and effective By doing so we believe that instead of the typical 5 to 10 success rate seen with new chemical entities in traditional drug development we can achieve a 50 to 70 success rate Who Is KindredBio Our core team is comprised of some of the top scientists and leaders in the industry For example our Chief Executive Officer Dr Richard Chin is a Harvard trained physician and Rhodes Scholar with a track record of almost a dozen drug approvals and over 50 Investigational New Drug applications to his credit Our Chief Scientific Officer and Executive Vice President of Regulatory Affairs and Quality Dr Steve Sundlof served as the Director of the Center for Veterinary Medicine at the FDA from 1994 to 2008 where he oversaw all veterinary products regulated by the FDA In addition Dr Hangjun Zhan Senior Vice President Biologics Research is a highly regarded protein biochemist and biophysicist with 20 years of drug discovery experience in the biotechnology industry Although our corporate headquarters are located in Burlingame California we hire for talent and not location making KindredBio very much a virtual company We have so many talented people on our team who are located across the country but come together as one cohesive unit because we are driven by our unified passion for developing the best medicines we can for our animal companions and that s due in large part because we are all animal lovers In fact many people on our team are lifelong equestrians including Jenna Hahn our Director of Sales and Marketing who is an avid showjumper Our Director of Veterinary Affairs Dr Valentine Williams DVM MS Diplomate ACVS practiced as a board certified equine surgeon and she and her daughters are very active in showing American Paint Horses She played a key role in bringing TILDREN tiludronate disodium to the market while at Ceva Animal Health Then we have Dr Melinda Poole O Banion DVM an equine internal medicine residency trained specialist who is our Senior Director of Clinical Development and Regulatory Affairs she is both a horse and dog enthusiast she breeds Miniature Australian Shepherds and American Quarter Horses While at Dechra she led the efforts to bring OSPHOS clodronate injection to the market prior to joining KindredBio She also led the development efforts for PRASCEND pergolide mesylate for horses with PPID Why Did You See a Need for KindredBio in the Animal Space Richard and I founded the company because we saw a tremendous similarity between the fields of veterinary medicine and human medicine Drugs that work in humans nearly always work in animals with modification Our pipeline is not limited to only developing blockbuster drugs We re looking to fulfill unmet needs for the veterinarians who treat our dogs cats and horses Our unique approach to drug development allows us to have an expedited efficient approach to the process that saves an extraordinary amount of time and money versus the traditional drug development approach found in human medicine making a very attractive fit in the marketplace

have limitations Have you ever tried to get a sick cat to eat a pill It s a challenging situation at best Additionally we have a deep pipeline of approximately 20 drugs and biologics under development for dogs cats and horses We are very focused in categories like Equine Gastric Ulcer Syndrome EGUS that affect approximately 90 of racehorses 60 80 of competition horses and 50 of pleasure horses and Equine Metabolic Syndrome EMS that acts much like diabetes in horses and can cause laminitis How Do You Support the Horse Industry We believe very strongly in supporting the veterinarians who care for our best friends We are committed not only in constantly asking them what they need and trying to figure out how to meet it but by supporting their associations such as AAEP American Association of Equine Practitioners and ISELP International Society of Equine Locomotor Pathology These associations are critical to providing the best research and education for our veterinarians In the past year or so we ve also partnered as a sponsor for many of the leading horse shows and equine venues in the country including the World Cup Showjumping Dressage finals in Omaha where we sponsored the on site veterinary hospital Boosting these types of events is our way of giving back to the industry at large and trying to specifically support the veterinarians who ensure that these high level athletes get the specialized care that they need Most recently we were one of the sponsors of the Rolex Central Park Horse Show This event allowed us to partner in such a unique way supporting the different disciplines and top horses from all over the world helping to educate the general public about horses and bringing some focus to our beloved pets all in the beautiful setting of Central Park in New York City Jenna Hahn Director of Sales and Marketing ESI Photography What s in the Pipeline We have two drugs currently under review with the FDA ZIMETATM dipyrone injection comes straight from hearing our equine veterinary partners in the field loudly and clearly Many people are familiar with the use of dipyrone for control of fever in horses as it s widely used in Europe But our equine veterinarians in the US are without this drug unless they have it compounded which can bring about issues with quality and consistency So we developed it as an IV formulation as a direct response to their needs MIRATAZTM mirtazapine transdermal ointment is one of our products made for our feline companions There are no approved veterinary drugs to manage weight loss in cats despite millions of cats needing treatment per year Currently practitioners must rely on off label use of human oral mirtazapine or compounded mirtazapine both of which Valentine Williams DVM MS DACVS Director of Veterinary Affairs center Jeff Kirkbride Photography At the End of the Day KindredBio will Know You ve Made an Impact in the Animal Space When For the past several years our team has been working long and hard on developing these medicines all in the effort to make the best options available to the animals we love because we believe they deserve to have the same cutting edge treatments as people do When we see some of our efforts come to fruition and we can see those treatments helping to improve the lives of dogs cats and horses we ll know for certain we ve made a difference Melinda Poole O Banion DVM Senior Director of Clinical Development and Regulatory Affairs

Archie Cox s Brookway Stables set up Alden Corrigan Media E ach year a highly competitive group Californians make the pilgrimage to the East Coast for the Indoor Circuit to go head to head with arguably some of the best horses and riders in the country This bi coastal journey is dramatically different for the West Coast residents than showing on home turf in so many ways And the luxury of a home field advantage is a distant 3 000 miles away It takes a strategic game plan and a significantly larger financial commitment for Californians to attend these iconic events than the East Coast residents who are based closer to these big prestigious shows might imagine the spectacular weather at home to travel across the country with the likelihood of encountering the lightening thunder humidity and rain that most likely awaits them upon arrival That said there are no shows on the West Coast with the rich history and depth of quality found year after year at the Pennsylvania National Washington International or the National Horse Show particularly in the Hunter divisions and Equitation Finals Thus we must encourage our top riders and horses to go outside of their comfort zone and if financially possible strive to compete at the top levels at the most competitive horse shows in this country The first obstacle making it difficult to head East is the beautiful horse shows offering great prize money throughout the state to choose from It can be challenging to convince riders to leave Some may argue the biggest deterrent to heading East is the competition but in reality it takes a significant financial commitment to get there and then to stay there If you fly a horse round trip 38 www TheCompetitiveEquestrian com plus vanning to and from the plane into Harrisburg for example you re looking at around 10 000 per horse If you ship ground in box stalls you can expect to be in the 4 000 round trip range When deciding to spend that much on hauling most of us choose to stay multiple weeks We don t get to go back home on the off week instead we stay at a layover facility Most layovers average 50 day per horse for board then we add shavings feed trainer hotel groom hotel rental car laundry charges haul again etc and those are for non show weeks The cost of showing in California and on the East Coast is very similar but the extra expense of getting there and staying there is what makes it so difficult for so many to make the trip Once the decision is made to head East the scheduling nightmare begins Flights for horses grooms trainers students on a September October 2017

The Cost of Taking Your Show on the Road A West Coaster s Perspective on Showing Back East By Hope Glynn weekly basis depending on what show we are at Rental cars for grooms rental cars for clients rental cars for trainers there is no one who has the luxury of driving there from home and having their own vehicle Assistants and some of the riders stay the entire time but many trainers fly home in between to help clients at home and to see family which requires weekly flights for many of us Our horses have special needs too Hay has to be pre ordered to be shipped in to the shows as many horses out West are used to timothy grass hay and it is hard to come by on the East Coast The horses have to get prepared to get used to the difference in climate change Trainers start introducing electrolytes fluids and immunity boosters before departure Getting the riders prepared both mentally September October 2017 and physically is another integral part of the trip Riders have been encouraged to get fitter both on and off the horse They need to get to the show a day earlier than they normally do in California based on the specified schooling sessions often in the middle of the night at the one ring indoor shows Add to that night classes creating pressure cooker situations that might cause anxiety that California Hunter and Equitation riders normally don t normally experience while showing against their friends and peers on the West Coast Getting the horses and riders prepared Indoors takes a great deal of work at home from the rider horse trainer grooms and assistants no matter what Coast you live on The trip East from the West Coast does in my opinion create an immense amount of extra planning and financial strain above what most people living on the East Coast realize when they ask me why I don t come East every year Yet never on the West Coast do you get the rush of showing at night in a ring where the pressure and elation is felt like putting in a great round in a medal finals with 150 people or cheering on your team while meeting riders from all across the country and the world who share your passion for riding and horses We West Coasters still need to go East to get those experiences I wish all my horses and riders could experience it at www TheCompetitiveEquestrian com Hope Glynn Alden Corrigan Media least once but it is financially unrealistic Yet whether you can get to any of the other East Coast Fall shows on horseback come and watch in the stands or online because ours is a thrilling sport to watch and be involved in and there is nothing like the feeling of putting it all together at one of these venues 39

The Best Kept Secret of the Northwest E By Corie Townsend ntrenched in the world of horses from a young age Judy Hedreen got the bug at the age of 6 Her parents had both grown up on farms with working horses so starting riding lessons wasn t that unusual for young Judy Watching the television series My Friend Flicka and Fury It was impossible not to be hooked she explains the scenes were beautiful and adventurous and I just fell in love with horses When she was old enough she enrolled in a Horsemastership course that was offered through Camp Fire Girls Judy studied anatomy conformation and classical riding taking advantage of an opportunity that few are presented with today She also began working at a stable in exchange for more time in the saddle hard to break into it That s something that I ve struggled with throughout my career Armed with a strategy and sticking to her goals Judy kept at it You never quit you just keep going In order to push through the glass ceiling and the skepticism she took the approach of a businesswoman You just have to build a better product and breed better horses In order to break into it I would give young riders horses that I thought were special to train and I was able to showcase them that way Judy Hedreen and George Williams accepting the 2005 USDF Horse of the Year Award for Coco Chanel SF Contucci Wendy SF Judy took a 10 year hiatus from horses during which she played semi professional Tennis and went to college at the University of Oregon Receiving her BS in Biology she delved into the lands of genetics and biostatistics Her interest in bloodlines found its early footing there Breeding really fascinated me I studied everything There were times when I could have told you the pedigree of every major horse in North America In her 20s Judy bought her first horse a Thoroughbred mare called Ambling Picture XX by And Behold XX I knew even then that I wanted to breed and that s why I bought a mare That mare followed me all over the country with my job and came with me when I finally landed in the Bay Area in 1980 Soon after I started looking for a stallion and I found that there were just 2 warmblood stallions in the Bay Area I went and saw this horse called Pik Solo and he was so elastic and beautiful that I bred her to him and that s how I ended up in Hanoverians Judy eventually made the move up to Washington making the long haul from there to California for inspections At her first inspection Judy brought 3 horses her 4 year old gelding was named Champion of the Riding Horse division a first step in a cascade of successes throughout her career as a breeder Her entrance into the world of breeding wasn t without obstacles As a woman in her field and one that wasn t riding on the circuit Judy wasn t taken seriously at first I wasn t competing so people didn t take me seriously I wasn t part of the in crowd and it was 62 Applying her background to the breeding program she started at Sylvan Farm Judy put together a business model One of the things I put right up front was that my goal was to produce an Olympic caliber horse I haven t done that yet but I ve gotten very close That s always been a goal of mine Looking back at the first moments when she felt she d truly made it as a breeder Judy laughs and says that there are 2 moments that really stand out for her The first one came in the early 1990s I bred a stallion named Agincourt who was an Abdullah son I really thought I was breeding good horses at the time but I m in the Northwest corner of the United States so I didn t know if they were really that competitive In 1994 I sent him to the Young Jumper Series at the Devon Horse Show and he was 4th overall We decided to send him to Florida and he competed successfully in the Preliminary Jumper division Then we sent him to a 100 Day Stallion Test and he was 2nd overall in jumping That was the first time I started to think that what we were doing was working The second moment came 10 years later sparked by a free jumping exhibition Judy was hosting At just 3 years old Far Star SF entered the ring and jumped higher than the sides of the arena walls Right then and there the guy representing the KWPN from Holland called his brother and said I have found you a horse They formed a partnership and shipped Far Star SF to Holland where he qualified for the 5 year old division of the FEI World Breeding Championships for Young Jumpers Laura Kraut representing the US and the American Hanoverian Society rode him September October 2017

Pulling My Boots Back On Turning Professional By Haley Schwab When I hung up my riding boots in 2014 I embarked on an unparalleled college adventure at the University of Chicago It was a whirlwind 3 years that included challenging coursework writing and editing for the political review and exploring the vast city of Chicago Despite these wonderful opportunities I never felt the passion in Chicago the likes of which I experienced while I was involved in the horse world There s just nothing that compares with the thrill of competing the satisfaction of getting through to a young horse the challenge of coaching both horse and rider and the contentment of working with C H such exceptional animals I count myself among the lucky ones as I embark upon my professional career with horses competing coaching and developing horses as well as working in the retail hay business While I am young ambitious and optimistic I don t expect this to be an easy road Long work days weeks spent on the road and the expense of this endeavor are just some of the challenges all professionals in this industry face Despite this I truly cannot think of something that would be more fulfilling for me I treasure every moment that I get to spend with the horses Whether I am riding ground working or grooming I am conscious of the fact that each aspect of an interaction with a horse can contribute to their training and ultimately their success in the show ring The same can be said of coaching Teachable moments occur when one is mounted when the actual riding happens or when deep in discussion about philosophical schools M of thought There s nothing I love more than working to translate my own riding skills and experience in the Grand Prix ring to students of all levels and seeing them succeed E B K F A 64 My riding and coaching skills as well as the success I have in the show ring would not be possible without the support of Macella and Charlie The environment they have created at Diamond Mountain Stables is one in which competitive nature and a desire to win are channeled through demanding technical training of both horse and rider while maintaining an atmosphere of camaraderie and a deep appreciation for horses and the circumstances that allow all of us to enjoy their gifts Through this training process I am inspired to be my best self to maintain healthy eating habits and a high level of physical fitness and to strive for a sense of calm mental clarity in every aspect of my life The experiences I have had both in the horse world and outside of it have instilled in me exceptional gratitude for the chance to pursue this endeavor with a keen awareness of this training philosophy I am excited to share my passion for competing and coaching alongside Macella and Charlie and the ever expanding DMS gang September October 2017

Stephanie Danhakl is Up For a Challenge By Emily Riden Jump Media W hen Stephanie Danhakl left the 2016 Capital Challenge Horse Show she went home to Boston with not just one tricolor ribbon but rather an impressive four after a clean sweep of the Amateur Owner 18 35 Hunter 3 3 and 3 6 division titles decided that she wanted to switch disciplines A family friend put Danhakl s parents in touch with Archie Cox now a highly successful and well known hunter jumper trainer who at the time was just starting his business and did not yet have many clients At any horse show it would have been a notable accomplishment but at the Capital Challenge Horse Show host to the World Championship Hunter Rider WCHR Finals and some of the nation s finest and most competitive hunter divisions it is particularly impressive Danhakl met with Cox and he watched her ride Shortly thereafter she had her first lesson with Cox who is based in Lake View Terrace CA But as with any notable success it did not happen overnight Learning the Ropes Danhakl originally of Pacific Palisades CA first started riding at the age of 12 taking dressage lessons from a small local barn Nobody in my family was really a horse person but I always really loved animals explained Danhakl now 30 I made my mom and dad turn our suburban household into sort of a barnyard with ducks and chicks and all different kinds of dogs and hamsters and guinea pigs and turtles My parents weren t too keen on my riding but we would go to the zoo and I d get to do pony rides That was my earliest exposure to horses While beginning to learn dressage Danhakl took note of the jumper riders also at the barn and attracted by the excitement of the jumpers My first lesson with him he said Jump the four stride I had never jumped before and I said What do you mean What s a four stride said Danhakl I didn t know what counting strides was Archie said Wait you ve jumped haven t you I explained that I had not and he said Oh we ve got a lot to learn From there Danhakl s hunter jumper education began While Danhakl got what some would consider a late start to her junior riding career Cox quickly helped get the young rider up to speed teaching her not only to ride but everything from care in the barn to parts of the horse often quizzing her on topics like types of bits In the saddle Cox deemed the 13 year old rider to be too old to be competing over the little jumps so with Cox s instruction Danhakl began competing in the 3 before moving up to the 3 6 the very next year While training with Cox Danhakl also made her very first visit to the Capital Challenge Horse Show competing in the Junior Hunter 15 and Under divisions Stephanie Danhakl and Golden Rule accept the Amateur Owner 18 35 Hunter 3 6 championship and the Grand Amateur Owner Hunter 3 6 championship awards from Troy Hendricks at the 2016 Capital Challenge Horse Show Photo by Shawn McMillen Photography

My horse s eye has turned blue What s The Difference Between Uveitis Glaucoma and Corneal Ulcers By Dr Sylvia Ouellette of Oakhurst Equine Veterinary Services E ye problems can seem to occur overnight in the horse One day they are fine and the next they are squinting have a swollen eyelid and won t let you come near their head Eye problems are confusing as they can look similar when they happen ie swollen or blue discolored cloudy eye tearing and or squinting But the causes can be very different trauma or disease all with separate treatment options As a horse owner it is important to recognize that eye problems in the horse are true emergencies Without proper treatment many eye problems can go very badly in just 24 hours and may cause your horse to lose his eye Therefore getting an accurate diagnosis is extremely important as the treatments for these diseases can be quite opposite from one another One medication may mean sight in one case or it may cause blindness in another We as horse owners often have leftover medication from another horse but should you use it The immediate answer is NO Always consult your Veterinarian before administering any medication to your horse especially into their eyes PHOTO 1 This lens is luxated into the anterior chamber but the entire lens is filled with a cataract Note the whitish bluish color to it 92 Anatomy The top glassy surface of the eye is the cornea It is comprised of multiple layers of thin cells about 16 6 17 9mm thick It protects the eye and allows the tear film to spread across the eye evenly Additionally it allows light to enter the eye and aids in focusing When you look at the normal eye the cornea should be clear and glossy You should be able to see through the cornea to the iris and see the pupil and lens The anterior chamber is the clear chamber between the cornea and the lens iris It is normally clear and free of any floating debris The pupil is the opening the iris makes around the lens The lens is the clear round structure in the middle of the pupil that focuses the light to the back of the eye and retina The vitreous is the black gel between the lens and the retina And lastly the retina is the back surface of the eye that contains the rods and cones that form the image that the horse sees This information is transmitted to the brain via the optic nerve PHOTO 2 Ophthalmic exam with the direct ophthalmoscope The Exam When you see a discoloration of the eye the first step is to determine if the problem is in the cornea anterior chamber or lens A good ophthalmologic exam is necessary We start off examining the external eye is he painful Is the eye closed Is he tearing Is one eye larger than the other photo 1 The next step is to look at the cornea and into the eye In a painful horse sedation or nerve blocks may be necessary to open the eyelid and look in the eye Examination with an ophthalmoscope photo 2 is important to see into the eye to the vitreous and retina When the eye is very painful the pupil may be constricted and require medication to dilate the pupil so we can visualize the back of the eye Intraocular pressures can be taken to determine if the horse has a condition causing high or low pressures which will require completely different treatment protocols photo 3 If the front of the eye is too cloudy to see through then sometimes we can use ultrasound through the eyelid to determine if there is any damage to the PHOTO 3 Tonovet device to measure intraocular pressures The small white probe will bounce of the cornea to obtain the pressure Most horses tolerate this with without the need for sedation topical anesthetic or other forms of restraint YOUR NEWS YOUR SPORT YOUR BUSINESS PHOTO 4 Ultrasound image from a horse with a completely blue cornea preventing a thorough exam with an ophthalmoscope Yellow arrows point to a detached retina from the back of the eye This horse is non visual September 2017

back of the eye see photo 4 of a horse with retinal detachment Ultrasound can be performed on a standing horse with or without sedation As you are scanning through the eyelid it is relatively simple and non painful We also use different stains to help us identify an ulcer on the surface of the cornea that may not be immediately evident The most common type of stain is fluroscein which will turn your horse s eye green Injuries and Disease Corneal ulcers this is damage to the outer layer of the eye Ulcers are very painful and horses will have their eye closed and you may see tearing or drainage There are many types of corneal ulcers and your Veterinarian should help to determine what kind how deep the ulcer is and what type of treatment it should receive A simple ulcer should heal within a few days You may see some blood vessels along the margins of the cornea reaching out to the ulcerated area this is a normal healing process photo 5 A melting ulcer is much more critical and can be caused by many different infectious agents including fungus These can be very difficult to treat and may need to have round the clock eye care to try to save the eye as these can progress to complete rupture photo 6 Indolent ulcers are an ulcer that does not respond to treatment does not take up stain when examined and doesn t heal These usually need to be treated with surgical debridement PHOTO 5 Central corneal ulcer with neovascularization blood vessels seen above the ulcer coming down across the cornea from above from the sclera white part of the eye September 2017 Treatment of ulcers consists of topical antibiotic Oral or topical pain relief and often atropine to dilate the eye as a constricted eye causes more pain Additionally other medications can be added to reduce inflammation and edema and promote healing A lot of these treatments will need to be administered many times a day For horses that resent medications being put in their eye multiple times daily there are devices that your Veterinarian can install under your horse s eyelid These are called subpalpebral lavage systems and are usually used in severe or hospitalized cases These allow you to administer the medications in a tube away from the eye but the medication will still be delivered to the eye in need Another disease that can cause excessive tearing pain squinting and a cloudy blue cornea is Uveitis photo 7 Uveitis is the leading cause of blindness in the horse Some are simple cases while others recur These are called Equine Recurrent Uveitis or ERU for short ERU typically has low intraocular pressures so checking the pressures during an eye exam is a good way to catch this early If there are no complicating factors such as a corneal ulcer treatment of choice includes corticosteroids or immunosuppressive drugs to counteract the inflammation This treatment may need to be followed for the life of the horse or as long as the ERU flairs up Since corticosteroids can exacerbate corneal ulcers one should always check for ulcers before PHOTO 6 Central cornea melting ulcer almost full thickness of the cornea Note the blue hue to the entire cornea commencing treatment for ERU if you notice pain squinting or tearing during a flair up One other disease that can cause pain squinting tearing and sometimes a cloudy blue cornea is glaucoma These horses tend to be very painful and may often times have an enlarged looking eye see photo 8 Trauma or even uveitis can lead to glaucoma Glaucoma is defined as an increased pressure in the eye Eventually if the pressure is not controlled this can lead to blindness There are a few medications both topical and oral that can control the pressure in your horse s eye Monitoring your horse s intraocular pressures often during treatment can determine a good dosing regimen to keep the glaucoma under control This may be a for life treatment once your horse develops this disease Some cases are difficult to get under control and surgical removal of the eye may be the only option for pain relief in these horses especially if they have already lost sight out of the eye There are many differing diseases that can all present alike when it comes to the eye in horses Have your Veterinarian out immediately if you notice them squinting tearing or having a color change to the cornea to prevent worsening of the problem Remember that eye problems are emergencies in the horse and should be looked at ASAP Please don t give just any medication found in your medicine box in the barn PHOTO 7 This horse has uveitis with low intraocular pressures It happened from trauma to the eye Note the bluish discoloration to the cornea YOUR NEWS YOUR SPORT YOUR BUSINESS PHOTO 8 This horse has glaucoma and increased intraocular pressure Note the mild bluish hue to the cornea but also note the general enlargement of the eye 93

PONY RIDER Gabrielle Sokolow Gabrielle Sokolow who goes by Gabs was born in Bryn Mawr PA near Devon and lived in nearby Newtown Square until this summer when her family moved to Westlake Village CA She crossed the country with two large ponies Kingston and Everafter and now rides with Liz Reilly at Makoto Farms Going into 7th grade Sokolow loves history and horses She finished her 6th grade year sharing her passion for civil rights and women s rights in a public speaking contest with the topic Gender Equality and Why I am a Feminist In addition to wanting to be a professional rider when she grows up Sokolow wants to be a victim advocate and civil rights lawyer Between riding and moving from coast to coast Sokolow said she s had a fabulous year to date She earned enough championships to compete at Devon won a USHJA Pony Hunter Derby at Blenheim EquiSports and won ribbons at the prestigious Pony Finals in Lexington Though passionate about hunters and the success she s seen so far she has plans to venture into the equitation and jumper rings But no matter the discipline she likes in her words to be one with my horse The road to Sokolow s achievements began at age two when she sat on a pony for the first time An early ribbon winning memory signifies a special moment in the path she has taken My first blue ribbon was when my old trainer gave me one of hers when I mastered posting at the trot Sokolow recalled I also remember my first lead line blue ribbon on my favorite medium pony Luv U Too After almost a decade of riding in PA naturally Sokolow had some trepidation about starting at her new barn in CA My incredible trainer Elizabeth Reilly has helped me make this transition easier She helps me every step of the way and she is very encouraging Even though I miss all my riding friends on the East Coast I love all my new barn and riding friends in CA They are like a family to me Also involved in track at school and a singer songwriter Sokolow sets high goals not only for competition but for her future In the world of horses she has made her debut in the 3 3 Junior September 2017 Hunters and hopes to move to the 3 6 at the end of the year And of course she holds the iconic Devon Horse Show as a forever favorite that she d like to qualify for and return to year after year EQUITATION RIDER Stella Buckingham A Los Angeles native Stella Buckingham is a California girl Her family s QofE Farms owns two horses that she is working with and competing successfully on Luisant and Nom de Guerre She rides with Katie Gardner who also grew up competing successfully in Southern California Buckingham will forever be known as the first rider to have won the newly minted American Tradition of Excellence Equitation Challenge presented by Whitethorne and hosted by Blenheim EquiSports Well received over seventy entries participated in the competitive and educational opportunity but Buckingham s impressive move from 8th in the first round to 1st in the second gave her the edge she needed to remain on top in the work off and claim the inaugural title I can t express enough how much of a wonderful experience it was to be a part of the American Tradition of Excellence Equitation Challenge I was truly honored to have won such an important and meaningful class Buckingham explained before going on to note what the American Tradition of riding means to her I personally think that equitation is the most important discipline in this sport because I believe it is the best way to learn the fundamentals of horseback riding Buckingham is also a successful hunter rider She earned third place overall in the 2017 USEF Junior Hunter Championship West aboard Luisant I think the hunters are super fun because I love the style of the horses jump and I love the fact that it is harder than it looks to just gallop in the ring and show brilliance she said An 8th grader at Brentwood School Buckingham is a creative type and loves art Her attention to detail serves her well in the world of horses where she values her accomplishments outside the show ring as well as those within I think that being a horseman or just spending time with your horse is very important so I try and learn as much as I can about horses YOUR NEWS YOUR SPORT YOUR BUSINESS equipment etc and I feel as if I have gained more knowledge this year Buckingham s time in the saddle began at age four on a very naughty pony named Owen Her show ring debut was memorable My first blue ribbon was in a lead line class at the Flintridge Horse Show on a pony named Thumbelina Carleton Brooks led me to my victory Certainly on an upward trajectory Buckingham has goals of placing well in the Big Eq Finals both nationally and regionally to increase her knowledge of the sport and to then go even bigger Hopefully one day I will make the Olympic team she said That is my dream that I am trying to reach everyday JUNIOR HUNTER Katherine Dash A recent graduate of University Prep High School in Seattle seventeenyear old Katherine Dash has shown tremendous commitment to her sport Born and raised in Bellevue WA Dash begged her parents to allow her to commute from WA to CA in order to ride with her current trainer Archie Cox With a promise of good grades they acquiesced three years ago and Dash has continued to prove her ability to achieve in and out of the saddle since then At first with Cox pushing her outside her comfort zone and teachers pressuring her to maintain her high academic standards Dash questioned her decision She can now say though that the hard work has payed off In spite of missing 105 days of high school and attending countless Skype sessions with my tutors it was well worth it Archie taught me to be gritty When I would hit a roadblock in the irons he would tell me to dig in and try harder Although I hated it initially it has changed my mindset immeasurably as an equestrian and student she said Though fond of all subjects in the classroom Dash is more mathematically inclined I love that there is always a definitive answer she explained In the show ring Dash is excelling in her last junior year She rode Everglow to the championship in the Large

Top 10 Signs of Poor Saddle Fit By Jochen Schleese CMS CSFT CSE www saddlesforwomen com 2017 Saddlefit 4 Life All Rights Reserved It is apparently a psychological truth that people have an affinity to lists consisting of 10 points maybe because we have 10 fingers 10 toes there are 10 commandments etc 10 is just a nice round number to work with and easy to count off David Letterman adopted an interesting institution with his top 10 lists on his late show I don t know why I actually came up with 9 signs of poor saddle fit that you can self diagnose but those are what they are and I couldn t artificially inflate that number You will see 7 or 8 points in the literature as well but I think these lists combine some of the points of reference I consider as my 9 So here now are 10 signs of poor saddle fit resulting in issues that you should avoid if at all possible by having your saddle checked and adjusted regularly Many of these issues are caused by a gullet plate which does not properly accommodate angle and width of the shoulder and ends up pinching at the withers 1 3 2 4 Tightness of muscle at front edge of shoulder blade This is generally caused by a gullet plate which pinches at the withers on the trapezius muscle causing the horse to consciously contract the muscle to avoid the pain Lameness in the front if the insertion of longissimus is pinched at the withers The longissimus is the long back muscle which we want to be smooth and supple in order to engage the back during movement Again if the insertion at the trapezius is impacted by a too narrow gullet this will impact the ability of the horse to move freely and can cause lameness or tripping on the forehand Lameness here can also be caused by the shoulder being pinched by a gullet plate that has not been fitted to accommodate its size shape and or angle 4 Photo shows muscle atrophy at the loin area paradoxically caused by an incorrectly fitted gullet plate which seated the rider too far back and creating excessive pressure in this area 98 Pinched withers cause twitching at the elbow This is a simple muscular reflex and is not consciously controlled by the horse it is a reaction to the pressure of the gullet at the withers Muscle atrophy visible dip at the withers Muscle atrophy can occur when an unbalanced saddle puts too much pressure on a particular area and the horse tries to avoid this pressure He goes into defensive mode by contracting the muscle in the area as well as the surrounding muscles and can even alter his gaits Under the point of pressure where circulation is impacted thus reducing nutrients and oxygen to the affected area the muscle will undevelop or atrophy 5 Hair loss blisters inability to move the skin around in the saddle support are YOUR NEWS YOUR SPORT YOUR BUSINESS 5 Hair loss blisters inability to move the skin around in the saddle support area These issues develop often at the withers area hair loss resulting in white hair growing back or along the spine where the gullet channel is too narrow for the horse s back Fluid bumps can develop when the horse is ridden hollow and the transverse processes of the spine touch each other or rub as in kissing spine or the withers are not in alignment with the spine Fluid bumps can also come when the ligaments have been injured previously from saddles with gullets that were too narrow 6 Bucking reflex activated by saddle that is too long causes hopping The saddle support area is between the base of the withers usually where the mane ends and the 18th 6 The saddle should never lie on the lumbars with their longer transverse processes September 2017

thoracic vertebra Past this vertebra are the lumbars upon which the saddle should not lie as this is where the so called bucking reflex is located We ve all seen horses that react in this way to a saddle which lies past the saddle support area a simple attempt to rid themselves of the irritant causing pain which is why many saddles are then pushed forward through the motion of the horse itself 7 Atrophy at the croup pressure on the spinal nerves causes one sided development of the muscles as horse tries to avoid pain As explained by veterinarians atrophy will occur under severe instances of constant pressure which will first damage the hair follicles resulting in hair loss and or white hair This can be reversed only when the cause is addressed i e the pinching saddle which will allow the muscle to regrow although the white hairs remain Muscle memory will help in the rebuilding of atrophied muscles if these were properly trained It will take significantly longer to build up untrained muscles or incorrectly trained muscles 8 Energy blockage to the meridians can cause heart circulatory and breathing issues Eastern medicine follows the theory that life energy flows along meridians humans and equines each have 12 meridians which can be influenced through acupuncture When the saddle puts pressure on the meridians the red lines in the diagram the flow of energy is interrupted causing several of these symptomatic issues to appear Further issues can also be caused by a bridle which is too tight impacting the meridians in the head region 7 Abnormal muscle development caused by a saddle that was too long September 2017 9 Too narrow gullet channel impedes expansion of the longissimus can block the movement of the forehand and cause uneven sweating The gullet channel needs to be wide enough through the entire length of the saddle to accommodate the spinal processes ligaments and nerve endings from front to back The width cannot be an arbitrary decision the necessary weight bearing surface still has to accommodate the rider s weight while keeping the conformation of the horse s back in mind The optimum width is between 6 10 cm it will seldom be wider and should never be narrower Padding a too narrow channel with extra padding to fix it is like wearing another pair of socks when the shoes are already too small 9 This saddle has a gullet channel which is too narrow YOUR NEWS YOUR SPORT YOUR BUSINESS 10 Pinching girth will shorten strides About 20 of instability issues arise from the girth The girth should be narrowest at the spot where it sits under the elbow and between 4 8 inches wide at the sternum to displace the pressure as evenly as possible along its length Girths that are too short and too narrow may actually cut into the pectoralis muscle Wider is always better but it should be narrow towards the ends and have elastic on both sides to allow the horse to breathe better These are my top 10 signs of poor fit you as the rider will know your horse better than anyone and can easily feel if something is off The easiest fix is always to determine if it is the saddle get that possibility out of the way and then call in your other equine professionals 10 The billets are crossed in order to ensure that they follow the direction of the muscle fibres in the triceps and latissimus muscles and will position the girth properly 99

REWARDED FOR THE DETAILS How Messenger Hill Farm Keeps their Standards High By Carrie Wirth 4 In a way I feel like he s a little bit mine too We have such a good system with him When you keep the horses happy they perform better When they have a relationship with the guys they re more comfortable T here is turnout and then there is turnout The Messenger Hill Farm team has almost transformed turnout into an art form Their dedication to the details of excellence in horsemanship has not gone unnoticed Over the last two years their work earned them the Equis Boutique Best Presented Horse award an unprecedented four times out of the often triple digit entry numbers at the FEI Horse Inspection every week during the Winter Equestrian Festival WEF The people at Equis Boutique also take their award seriously The criteria the award is judged by are grooming and condition of the horse if the horse stands still during the inspection if the horse will walk and trot in hand on a loose rein whether the horse is presented by the rider and the rider is well dressed and if the handler turns the horse clockwise The Best Presented Horse Award was designed to not only complement the prestige of FEI Horse Inspections but also to reward those who approach the horse inspection with pride said Cesar Hirsch co founder of Equis Boutique Since we started presenting this award we have seen each horse inspection get more and more impressive While it makes our decision more difficult we are proud that it is elevating the FEI Horse Inspection We also enjoy recognizing the caretakers of these horses who put in so much hard work to keep them competition ready and looking their best at the horse inspection So what does it take to win the award Good people who are dedicated to their work Led by Freddie and Jodi Vazquez the Messenger Hill Farm team is based out of Mettawa Illinois near Lake Forest just north of Chicago They typically have around 30 horses at the top circuit shows Their clients compete in the ponies hunters equitation and jumpers Jodi is a top hunter trainer with many championships to her credit Freddie has three FEI jumpers and represented Puerto Rico at the 2015 Pan Am Games in Toronto Together they run their busy operation and teach the American style of riding as advocated by George Morris and like Morris this team couldn t be more serious about their commitment to horsemanship down to the most minute detail Managing a stable with expectations of excellence starts with the team that you assemble and how you grow together said Jodi Vazquez It s imperative that everyone capture your 100 The Details The grooming details are managed on an ongoing basis The grooms are self starters and know their jobs and understand the standards of excellence expected As soon as they see a horse that s getting a little hairy or a little dull they put the time in to groom or bathe him A well groomed horse doesn t happen at the last minute it is an on going process that requires attention and elbow grease Freddie Vazquez Jodi Vazquez and Elena Couttenye Photo by Jump Media vision and that every person plays out from their strengths to do the very best job that they can Barn manager Jen Hauser has been with the Vazquezes for nearly three years Originally from Indianapolis she has a degree in Business Management from Purdue University Everyone is on the same page Jen said of the Messenger Hill Farm team There s a right way to do it and that s just how it s done No one skips steps on the quality of the horsemanship The barn is always immaculate The horses are always in good condition they look good they re fit Freddie likes details and everyone is really good at keeping an eye on the details It s like a well oiled machine Jen said We just have really great people Freddie and Jodi keep the horse to groom ratio very low so that each person is assigned no more than three horses In addition Freddie pairs the grooms with particular horses so they develop a relationship With this approach the assigned handler is more likely to notice the slightest change in their charge s health soundness and behavior and can act quickly if there is an issue I believe the horses are happiest when they have a relationship with a particular person Freddie said For instance with Bachelor 4 one of Freddie s FEI horses he and Jen have a very strong bond In this case she does all the riding and I compete him He likes it that way I know him so well Jen added about Bachelor YOUR NEWS YOUR SPORT YOUR BUSINESS Freddie and Jodi give Jen freedom to purchase all the tools needed to make sure the horses look the best The grooms at Messenger Hill Farm are partial to a particular type of soft brush that they special order The team uses the best feed and supplements possible They like the Cavalor brand because it is high quality and reliable for FEI compliance The horses are clipped well before we go to any horse show Jen said Then they go back through and touch everyone up They never let any of the horses get out of control They just always stay so on top of it They never let the horses get to the point where they need a total intervention The details are also about efficiency Freddie likes his trunks set up a certain way from their alignment in the aisle to the way the contents are organized the process is always the same The grooms take photos of the trunks and share them so they are always perfectly set up No time is wasted searching for tools of the trade A Typical Messenger Hill Farm Show Day The Messenger Hill Farm day starts around 4 a m when Jen and the grooms arrive The first item of business is to check all the horses temperatures to make sure that they are all healthy and feeling good They give hay and water and wait at least a half hour before they are given their grain The stalls are cleaned Jen pulls the tack out to get everything set She puts bridles on the hooks and changes bits if needed The horses are lunged if necessary Every horse that shows gets flatted before they show Whether it s Freddie s horses or the clients they always flat so they re loose and rideable September 2017

Freddie Jodi and I usually have a set of horses to ride at 6 30 she said The grooms and I will start tacking up and I ll tack one up When the horses come back from the lunging ring I ll bathe them if needed Jodi handles the schedule with the assistance of Jen and the staff The horses that are scheduled to show right at 8 a m are sent to the ring then Jen manages what horses need to be sent to which rings and helps by checking horses in with the starters We divide and conquer that way Jen said I ll try to hit a couple rings and post and juggle depending on how many people we have We all just kind of fit in as need be to get a plan organized for the day When they have a feel for what time everyone is showing they fit in the other horses that need to get ridden and fit in some lessons on the side It s an ever evolving process throughout the day Once the day gets going it s busy There s not much down time or quiet If there are horses showing later in the day the grooms pull them Arnulfo Novoa with Zippo Z and Freddie Vaqzquez awarded the Equis Boutique Best Presented Horse award out and get them cleaned up and ready by Elena Couttenye Photo by JUMP MEDIA Being organized and to having a solid plan the day before means that nothing falls through the cracks Jodi said Nothing is random or last minute about what we do a little late oh man you wait to jog for a long time It takes a huge chunk out of your day Plus the horses get antsy ready It takes time to pick the shavings out of the tail We re never caught off guard with horses that need to be at the ring in 15 minutes all covered in shavings Jen added The system keeps us on their toes but the team is organized and efficient The Bottom Line Keep up on clipping brushing sheath cleaning chestnut pealing ear cleaning The Challenges of FEI Competition In in order to be compliant with the FEI rules the staff understands the precautions that must be taken to avoid any chance of contamination that could lead to a positive test of a banned substance All the FEI horses equipment is kept separate including all the tack brushes wraps everything There are so many things that are OK for national competition but not for FEI Jen said We try really hard to keep a handle on that and try to keep everything within FEI rules to make sure everything is compliant While they are at WEF Jen usually takes some time on Mondays her day off to go to the farm and organize the FEI details for the week Tuesday Jen and the team start early They flat the horses in morning so they are nice and relaxed They make sure that the horses are impeccably groomed Their ears are clean and clipped and they are braided Then we walk them over to the FEI she said In Florida it s nice because the jog is at 1 p m every Tuesday so you can plan your day around that Freddie is always there ahead of time Our plan is always to be early in the lineup The one or two times we ve ever run September 2017 I ve worked a number of places over the years and this is hands down the best group of guys I ve ever worked with she said They care about the horses they pay attention to details They work so hard You have to really love the horses to do this and to do it well It s about treating people right If you treat your people right they re going to be happy to put in those long hours and go above and beyond to make sure things are the way they need to be and to really step it up We work together toward our goals and at the end of every day good bad or indifferent we know that we did our best and reached for the stars Jodi added We always aim for excellence in everything we do Top Ten Tips for Top Notch Turnout 1 Hire the best people To manage the best operation everyone needs to understand the lifestyle and love it 2 Build a culture of mutual respect At Messenger Hill Farm the team respects each other and can rely on each other There are no surprises because everyone is thinking ahead and not waiting to be told 3 Start early The Messenger Hill farm team has the stalls done before most people arrive to the barn That means everyone is ready to help get the horses YOUR NEWS YOUR SPORT YOUR BUSINESS 4 Grooming is an on going process 5 Bathe only when needed Bathing too often can rob the coat of its natural oils 6 Clip well before the show Horses coats can look dull if they have just been clipped Give the coat a chance to grow a bit and be groomed to bring out the shine 7 Find the tools that work for you The Messenger Hill Farm team is partial to a particular soft brush that makes the horses shine 8 Keep everything organized Whether it s in the barn in the trunks or in the grooming stalls in the ringside tote or backpack everything should have a place If you keep everything in its place there s no wasted time hunting it down 9 Braid Horses look beautiful they are braided A braided horse shows you ve gone that extra step to present them with pride Braid for the jog Braid to compete in the hunters and the jumpers 10 Manage and keep track of the day s schedule If you haven t built in enough time you could be scrambling and turnout could suffer If there s down time it can be used to put some in some extra grooming time 101

Masters of Fox Hounds Melody Fleckenstein MFH Michael Wager Sr Jt MFH Tami Masters Jt MFH RJ Argenzio West Sr Ad MFH Joanna Herrigstad Sr Ad MFH Jean Brooks MFH Emeritus Woodbrook Hunt Club Lakewood WA www woodbrookhuntclub com INTERESTED IN FOX HUNTING Woodbrook Hunt will be holding a Shakedown Hunt on Saturday September 30th for those interested in foxhunting Here is a new section on that event from our website www woodbrookhuntclub com that explains what to expect At Woodbrook we want you to experience fox hunting before you spend money on clothing and tack that you might not use again Hopefully you and your horse or mule will fall in love with it as we have To help the rider and horse decide if it is something you both want to continue doing Woodbrook has created a trial period for riders and their horses that allows some flexibility with traditions The information below is geared toward those who are trying out fox hunting to see if they want to pursue it further Typically non members are invited to a Shakedown Hunt geared towards green horses green riders and those wanting to try out foxhunting You may also participate in hound walks from the kennels mounted hound exercises and pre season training hunts as a non member if you have a current Joint Base Lewis McChord range pass which we can help you obtain The Shakedown Hunt is 25 00 and hunt breakfast is 10 00 there is no charge for hound exercises and hound walks and pre season training hunts You can extend trying foxhunting as a non member for two more hunts during our formal season at a capping fee of 50 00 per hunt and after that we hope you are hooked and join at our low membership rates You can talk to either Melody Fleckenstein MFH or membership chair Michelle Hoedeman for suggestions on how to move from the trial period to membership BASICS 1 We don t hunt foxes the hounds follow a scent dragged by human runners The hunt field the riders follow the hounds to enjoy watching the hounds work the scent 2 There are three flights or groups at most hunts first flight think fast runners and jumpers second flight think horses loping or 110 trotting and occasionally going over jumps and hill toppers the walk trot group that doesn t go over jumps The hill topper group is a walk trot group and goes only as fast as the slowest rider in the group feels comfortable going It is not unusual for the hill topper group to be split into two different groups to better meet the comfort level of the riders 3 Each group will have a Field Master your new best friend at the front and the back of the flight who helps guide the group and helps where needed The Master or Field Masters will assign you to a group to ride after talking with you and meeting your horse There is an opportunity part of the way through the hunt to change groups move up or down in speed with the Master s permission 4 Except in rare situations all riders and horses new to fox hunting start out in the hill topper group and may remain in that group for a couple hunts to a couple years or longer 5 Western tack is allowed while riders are trying to decide if they like fox hunting and even during the season for riders trying foxhunting for the first time The hunt has informal and formal hunts correct attire is described on the website and you can phase into all the proper gear Black tall boots or half chaps and paddock boots and beige breeches and a dark coat and white shirt are correct once the season starts Most riders arrive at the hunt club an hour before the hunt to tack up their horse mule and generally socialize At hunt time the hounds are released from the kennels and the group rides out onto Joint Base Lewis McChord For the hill toppers about half of the time is spent walking along trails through the woods or over the native meadows to reach viewpoints to watch the hunt The other half of the time is split between trotting along trails and sitting in the saddle at a view point to watch the hounds followed by the first and second flights Most hunts are two to three hours long Hunt Staff Jennifer Hansen Huntsman Sarah Glaser Kennelman Whip Michael Wager Whip Emily Rang Whip
