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

Unbridled Ambition Andy Kocher on Navalo de Poheton Winners of the 100 000 Longines FEI World Cup Jumping Del Mar Alden Corrigan Media for West Palms Events Andy Kocher s Unrelenting Work Ethic and Enthusiasm Have Brought Him to New Heights A ndy Kocher won the biggest class of his career and he celebrated by driving 1 600 miles to another horse show Less than 12 hours after capturing the 100 000 Longines FEI World Cup Jumping Del Mar Kocher was en route to another qualifier at the Royal West in Calgary with his west coast string in tow Making the trip with his wife Jenny Kocher drove nearly 40 hours straight to make it to Stampede Park in time for the competition s FEI jog And as the only member of his team with a commercial driver s license he did all the driving himself It s safe to say his new Longines watch blue winner s sash and new position atop the east coast sub league standings of the World Cup s North American League haven t gone to the State College PA native s head Jenny and I were driving through Montana and it s a beautiful place Kocher said I thought to myself Wow we re driving through Montana for free People pay a lot of money to visit here It s the best job ever when I get to do that kind of stuff It gives you purpose I would never be going to Calgary if I wasn t in this sport and this business I d have never gone to Del Mar or Sacramento Toronto Mexico City or Miami Kocher 34 has worked in the sport for much of his adult life but he approaches his job with a youthful enthusiasm that is put on display with his boyish smile euphorically triumphant fist pumps and entertaining press conferences Following a win at Devon PA in the 4 Welcome Stake in which his right leg nearly 10 came up over the saddle upon landing off the final fence he joked that he was riding sidesaddle for the wrong class After winning in Traverse City MI he conducted his winning interview while holding winning mount Ciana because he didn t have a groom with him to take his horse At Del Mar he admitted his inside turns were kind of ridiculous His honesty relatability and sheer joy at competing are a refreshing change of pace from many top riders who can tone down their successes as just another day at the office Kocher climbing the ranks of the sport from 1 20m mini prixs at the smallest most localized regional horse shows in Iowa Pensacola and Atlanta to the five star level and a potential trip to Paris for the World Cup Finals knows that is not the case At Del Mar I looked up at the board and thought I was going to be second and I would have been very happy to be second he said Believe me I would have been thrilled But it was me this time I was first So it was a fun day The Lure of a Pool House Kocher is a third generation horseman but a career in the industry was not always in the cards for him Growing up he aspired to be a baseball player but he soon recognized he didn t quite have the talent to be the next Derek Jeter My mother took me to the eye doctor multiple times thinking There s no way he could be this bad Kocher recalled So Kocher gave up his bat and instead found himself riding November December 2017 www TheCompetitiveEquestrian com

ponies and school horses at his grandparents farm near State College PA where his grandmother Gail runs Kocher Tack Shop and still puts on an annual A rated horse show Kocher credits his uncle Kerry as his first instructor but after Kerry went out and bought his own farm Kocher explained that he was mostly self taught At horse shows several trainers including Bob Crandall helped him in the junior hunters where he had moderate success I wasn t like a winning junior rider Kocher said I could do alright but you wouldn t be like He s going to be tough to beat The biggest deal we ever did was that we went to indoors one year and I might have made one jog And equitation No way I might have won one time by accident I was adequate but not amazing and not polished Professionally Kocher was drawn more to the industry jobs outside of the saddle He learned to drive a truck and trailer build jumps and even shoe his horses Fascinated by horse sales he began buying racehorses off the track retraining them to jump and selling them Driving a four horse van his mother bought for 2 500 he traveled around the northeast staying at farms belonging to friends of his father s horseman Kelly Kocher and trying to sell the horses he had As time went on he spent more and more time at the racetrack I really liked the racehorses and I started galloping on the track and breaking yearlings Kocher said I wanted to ride races but I obviously was way too big I thought maybe I could make the weight for steeplechasing and I got to ride some point to points and train the horses over the jumps but I never made the weight So Kocher always had a fearless need for speed that has come to become an asset in his jump offs But the sport of show jumping almost lost Andy Kocher to a permanent career in Thoroughbred racing were it not for a job offer from trainer Dave Pellegrini I was about to go to Europe with Kirkwood Stables to be a groom at the Tattersalls auction said Kocher who was 23 at the time I was pretty excited I had never left the country before I got my passport and was living in Camden SC Then Pellegrini told me what he was going to pay me and that I d live in a nice pool house I said I ll be there tomorrow A New Horse a New Level Kocher says Pellegrini who runs his Spring Mill Farm out of Eads TN showed him that a career in horses and specifically as a rider would be feasible for him Pellegrini got him the ride in his first grand prix at Brownland Farm in Franklin TN aboard Maida Clifton s Optimistic in 2007 and he won his first grand prix a year later After running a small show barn out of Alabama Kocher was ready to take the next step in his career He took seven horses a truck and trailer and about 7 000 and set off on his own a risky and bold move indicative of the drive he possessed to achieve his ambitious and what some dubbed as unrealistic goals But one move would completely change the course of his fortunes He swapped out three of his horses for one a Holsteiner gelding named Le Conte Le Conte was small in stature but he possessed the biggest heart Kocher had ever encountered in a horse The duo finished fourth in their first grand prix in 2013 a regional contest in Tennessee and by the time the gelding s career ended this summer Le Conte had racked up more than 60 top 12 grand prix placings including eight grand prix wins The gelding recently received a well deserved retirement this fall at young rider Sloane Coles farm in Upperville He was the one that won a lot Kocher said He s 100 percent sound and there s nothing wrong with him but he doesn t owe me anything He did his service Le Conte s success began to put Andy s name in the spotlight which allowed him to garner more owners and put together a Andy Kocher on Navalo de Poheton Winners of the 100 000 Longines FEI World Cup Jumping Del Mar Presented by Pacific Sotheby s International Realty Equestrian Division Alden Corrigan Media for West Palms Events November December 2017 www TheCompetitiveEquestrian com 11

few small ownership syndicates He began to make connections in Europe and more people sent him horses some to sell and others to keep for Andy to campaign himself Over time the quality of the horses he received also improved It developed from there Kocher said Every time I went up a level it was based on one particular horse The Horse With the All or Nothing Mentality Navalo de Poheton has been the horse to make Kocher a contender at the 1 60m level but that wasn t by design at least at first A 16 year old Selle Francais gelding Navalo competed up to the five star level with Schuyler Riley until the gray was involved in a trailer accident on the way back from Spruce Meadows According to Kocher the trailer slipped off of a lip of the road and flipped on its side Navalo survived but was off for a while and when he came back to competition it was at a smaller level mostly with junior riders When Kocher was approached about buying the horse his initial plan was for Navalo to be paired with an amateur rider but Kocher quickly learned the gelding did not like the job and the gelding was fourth in a two star grand prix at Caledon in Canada He then won the CSI 4 50 000 Devon Welcome Stake and the CSI 3 130 000 Ariat Grand Prix at Tryon NC and from there Kocher rested his mount with bigger goals in mind After making his World Cup qualifier debut last year Kocher made it his goal to qualify for the Longines FEI World Cup Jumping Final in Paris set to take place in April And now he s close His victory at Del Mar International is the result of a fearlessness for the unconventional and an unfailing willingness to adapt his horse Navalo has a tendency to get strong at the end of his rounds so Kocher along with his father came up with a strategy to solve the issue based on a riding style employed by former international show jumper Terry Rudd and her mount PS Gazpacho In the first round Kocher took three inside turns and added down the lines to keep his horse in check and still make the time allowed The pair did 12 strides down the final line triple adding and not only did they got the job done but they also went on to take the victory He wasn t very good for that he said He s kind of a strange horse He doesn t accept the job very well He ll either do nothing or do what he s doing now I decided to try something new to make every inside turn that I could possibly figure out on the course even ones that looked ridiculous and add everywhere Kocher said It kept him a little more contained In the jump off I thought that he was very well behaved That would be competing at the top levels of the sport Kocher gave Navalo his first test at a regional grand prix in Tulsa OK in April and the gray won twice So Kocher tried another step up Obviously I m going to try to stick with that plan throughout the rest of the fall he continued It s really the only problem I was having Andy Kocher on Navalo de Poheton Alden Corrigan Media for West Palms Events

One In A Million The Partnership That Made A Champion By Esther Hahn Mandy Porter Abigail Archer and Milano Photo Alden Corrigan Media for West Palms Events

Teamwork makes the dream work is an often repeated catchphrase in horse sport But as any equestrian will attest there s no better way to encapsulate all the pieces and parts that go into propelling a horse and rider pair to the top of the podium From the vet to the farrier to the groom everyone plays a role But success starts with the original three part equation the horse the rider and the owner In the case of Milano the 12 year old Swedish Warmblood gelding Orlando x Pomme Royal that burst onto show jumping s top level this season it all began with three time World Cup finalist Mandy Porter and her client Abigail Archer n e Weese selecting him from a lineup of top prospects Neither Porter nor Archer predicted that Milano would begin the year with four grand prix wins the most notable of which was the impactful victory in the AIG 1 Million at HITS Coachella Hitting his stride Milano has continually proven to his team that when the questions are asked he ll answer The clever bay continued the momentum with a top 7 finish in the Great American 1 Million at HITS Ocala and by the start of the fall indoor season he jumped his way back into the winner s circle with a first in the 100 000 FEI World Cup Jumping Sacramento CSI3 W in October But before the accolades came the relationships years in the making And luckily for the team behind the winning horse the ongoing love friendship and mutual respect between the three personalities exceed the overflowing talent and blue ribbons making the partnership a remarkable one A Lasting Connection In 2010 Archer moved eight hours south from Northern California to San Diego specifically to train with Porter At the time Archer had only known the grand prix rider from horse shows but when Archer decided to focus on taking her riding to the next level she knew Porter would be the right trainer to help her achieve her goals At the time I had two horses and we were jumping some of the bigger classes and trying to move up to the World Cup classes and I asked if she d be interested in having me as a client and she graciously said Yes Archer remembered about how she came to train with Porter Porter knew of Archer at the time because she had Ace the wellregarded stallion that jumped at the World Cup level with California based professional Richard Spooner I had known Ace and really liked him Porter added I watched him with Abby and that must have initiated our conversations when we first met So without knowing anyone in the area Archer made the leap of faith and moved to train with Porter at her ACP Enterprises in Encinitas Calif The advantage to riding with Mandy is that she s kept her business relatively small said Archer For me there was never a blossoming amount of clients and she wasn t running from ring to ring Where you would normally have little time I actually had quite a bit of time with her And in the riding aspect I ve taken away incredible things and done great things with my riding from my time training with Mandy Enter Milano It was a search for new horses for Archer that brought the two women to Europe where they eventually found Milano in the spring of 2013 Mandy has found great horses through Stevie Macken in Europe revealed Archer He took us to a few different places before we ended up at Enda Carroll s and tried a bunch of horses and Milano was one of them At the time he was a stallion a sort of talkative stallion if you will But when you were on him even if he was talking there was just so much energy in him and he was so careful He was a little green he d jump anything you pointed him at but there needed to be more flatwork put into him Mandy and I tried him then we went back to where we were staying and had dinner and talked a lot about him The next day we went back and tried him again I knew from the minute that I first saw him that I really liked him Porter said He still needed some finishing touches and to further his education but as far as raw talent and just his desire you could tell he was a winner with a ton of talent For me it was a no brainer to get him He was quirky added Porter From the very first time we saw him he was a little bit his own self and quirky And like Abby said he was a stallion We knew another stallion wasn t in the cards because she already had Ace and she didn t really need any stallion competitiveness in the barn and she didn t need him to be a stallion so we gelded him and he s just been a great horse He has a lot of personality he s his own guy if you will He s not totally conventional Sometimes it takes a little more to figure out what he s thinking He always has a purpose we just have to be smart enough to figure out what that is Milano arrived in California in August 2013 and soon flourished beyond his initial quirkiness to show a fun loving personality that Mandy Porter and Abigail Archer Photo Alden Corrigan Media

From The Old Guard To A New Regime Robert Ridland is Leading the Charge in U S Show Jumping By Lauren Fisher I t is hard to believe that Robert Ridland is heading into his sixth year as chef d equipe of the Herm s U S Show Jumping Team Ridland had big shoes to fill as successor to the legendary George H Morris who ended an eight year reign in 2012 but Ridland has taken the sport of showjumping to new heights since stepping in A horseman since childhood Ridland brought a wide range of experience to the role Two decades competing on the U S Show Jumping Team including two Olympic Games roles as FEI course designer and FEI technical delegate a seat on the Board of Directors for the AHSA predecessor to the USEF and his role as President of the west coast management company Blenheim EquiSports all made Ridland an obvious choice for chef Born and raised in Southern California Ridland got his start riding horses at a young age and trained with renowned horseman Jimmy Williams as a teenager Throughout the school year Ridland only trained on weekends but spent a couple summers living in an apartment on Williams farm riding every day I spent several summers with Jimmy and just rode every horse that he had and got a lot of experience Ridland recalled There were several of us that were in the same generation of riders developed by Jimmy and I think we learned from the best He was just a genius horseman he taught us every aspect of horsemanship At the young age of 13 Ridland got the ride on a talented Robert Ridland 2008 C Mike Tomlinson DVM jumper named Kid Shannon that Williams owned That year the pair ended up winning the Puissance at the old Indio National Horse Show The wall went up to 6 9 and a tie breaker was held between Ridland and Kenny Nordstrom over a massive spread jump set at 6 6 high and 8 feet wide That was a memorable moment early in Ridland s career During the summer of 1969 Ridland was ushered into a legendary era of the sport The team had selection trials that year for young riders to train at the U S Equestrian Team USET headquarters in Gladstone NJ Ridland was selected and rode for the senior 28 team for the first time in 1970 He went on his first European tour that summer at the age of 19 and continued to represent the team through the entire decade of the seventies Ridland was fortunate enough to be part of what he considers the old guard of the USET The era of the sixties was dominated by riders like Bill Steinkraus Frank Chapot Mary Mairs Chapot Kathy Kusner and many other renowned riders along with infamous chef d equipe Bert DeNemethy During those years the system was very different Ridland explained The best horses in the U S were loaned or donated to the USET and Bert was then entrusted with the job of matching the best horses with the best riders That system lasted through 1972 which was my third year on the team It was of course an amazing experience to be the young guy on that team and to glean the knowledge not just from Bert DeNemethy who was a genius but the riders as well Then the big transition happened Ridland noted By 1974 riders had professional owners and professional riders came to be a big part of the sport By the time 1976 came along the whole makeup of the team had drastically changed Bill Steinkraus had retired Frank was the only senior member left on the team and the rest of us were kids It was me Michael Matz Dennis Murphy and Buddy Brown There was this group of young still relatively inexperienced riders and we were all riding as professionals for owners that was the big swing I was very fortunate to be able to be a part of both systems There were pluses and minuses to each but the effects of those two periods in time for the USET are still felt today Ridland first rode professionally for Winter Place Farm in Salisbury MD which became home to many greats of the sport As he represented the team less in the eighties Ridland took on other roles while still riding and training He became an FEI course designer and set for many major events over a period of about 20 years As an adjunct to his course designing career he was also the technical delegate for many of the World Cup Finals held around the world November December 2017 www TheCompetitiveEquestrian com

The Ridland Family Christy Burleson Photography Ridland also worked as a commentator for several television networks including CBS ESPN and NBC He commentated for the World Championships on CBS in 1986 and did the color commentary for the Olympic Games in Barcelona 1992 and Athens 2004 on NBC In the early nineties Ridland decided to get into horse show organizing as well With business partner R J Brandes Ridland formed Blenheim EquiSports which incorporated management for all of the shows run at The Oaks in San Juan Capistrano and Del Mar The company also runs the Las Vegas National Horse Show which then led to becoming show manager of the FEI World Cup Finals in Las Vegas The Finals were first held in Vegas in 2000 and have since returned to the city five times with another run coming up in 2020 With so much on his plate Ridland first thought that he would not have time to take on the role of chef d equipe upon the announcement of Morris s retirement But after some successful prodding from many individuals including his family he sent his application in the last night before the deadline in early December 2011 That January there were interviews and in early 2012 Ridland had officially been named the next U S chef d equipe to start one year later I was fortunate to be picked and the timing was great because it was done before George s final year had even started Ridland remarked I was able to be part of the Nations Cups in early 2012 The selection trials started in Wellington FL that winter and I was able to sit by his side and shadow him as he went through the November December 2017 entire selection procedure Then we went on to the Olympic Games in London where I was also able to be a part of everything To have the support of George was incredible and to this day I have support from him Ridland continued I can call him anytime and he will also pick up the phone and call me It has been a great experience to be able to see first hand how it was really done It is one thing to be a rider or course designer but when you are in a new position there are always aspects of the job that you did not anticipate Because I was able to have that year as a learner there were no surprises the following year when I took over for real The first Nations Cup for Ridland as chef d equipe was during the winter of 2013 in Wellington and he kicked things off with a win He has since had many great memories over the last five years I have been very lucky Ridland stated There were a lot of rumblings before I got the job that we didn t have the young riders that we used to or we didn t have the horses I was very public in my feelings from the beginning that none of that was true I think that we are in an extremely fortunate position in our country to have all of the different resources that we have Throughout these five years I would say we have had an amazing run There are a lot of individual moments that stand out from others Each time you are on the podium in a championship is nice and obviously the World Equestrian Games and the Olympics are huge moments There were some Nations Cup moments that were really quite special he added Winning the 100th Nations Cup in German history three years ago in Manheim was a very special moment www TheCompetitiveEquestrian com 29

Winning Dublin twice including this year and being awarded the Aga Kahn Trophy was wonderful That Trophy is so revered in that country and to have the President of Ireland present it has to be a moment that you never forget In 2017 more than anything Ridland was thrilled with the team s consistency Statistics from the USET show that out of 11 Nations Cup starts they finished in the top two nine times four of which were wins It is almost unprecedented the consistency that the riders have had Ridland said That is an amazing stat of consistency but it is mostly amazing because of the number of riders that we used We had 21 riders and 30 horses on those 11 teams We were not just leaning on a few good horse rider combinations to get those stellar results We were absolutely sharing the load Probably the most amazing statistic of all was that 36 of those starts were by U25 riders That is what we have been fighting for for so long There has been an incredible team effort to broaden the exposure of our young riders and to have that degree of successful experiences by young riders bodes well way beyond the present results it bodes well for our future Though he is busy with so many roles throughout the year Ridland always makes his family a top priority He has two children a son Peyton and a daughter McKenna with wife Hillary Hillary runs the family s training business in California and helps with the oversight of Blenheim EquiSports but also finds time to travel with Ridland to his major events The kids also join whenever they can When not traveling the world Ridland enjoys his time at home and has even gotten back in the saddle after an eight year sabbatical Dr Ryan Ferris and Dr Dora Ferris are excited to be taking over services previously provided by Dr Lisa Metcalf and Honahlee PC Summit Equine will be open in Newberg Oregon on January 1st 2018 Featured Services Artificial Insemination Cool and Frozen Semen Embryo Transfer Stallion Collection Semen Shipment and Cryopreservation Frozen Semen Storage Hillary kind of hid my boots and I have been so busy lately that was fine he admitted But the other day all of a sudden my boots reappeared and I actually have been riding a little bit I ended up on the board down at the barn a lot more than I was expecting Whether it is flatting or doing some gymnastics on the horses it has been quite fun Obviously I am not competing anymore and have no intention to do that but I sure don t mind jumping a few occasionally Looking to the future for the team the 2018 season is going to be big with the FEI World Equestrian Games WEG being held on home soil in Tryon NC As soon as we finished this season we started thinking about what s coming up next You go straight into the future and the future of course will be WEG Ridland detailed A home country World Championships is obviously something that will be the highlight of our year This year the first big priority was the World Cup Finals in Omaha which had more importance than usual because it was on home soil Amazingly no American had ever won a World Cup Final in the U S so I made that a big priority and McLain Ward was very accommodating to jump all the clean rounds he did The other big priority was the Nations Cup Finals in Barcelona where we earned team silver so we kind of bookended the year with great results Next year will likewise bookend itself with the World Cup Finals in Paris and the WEG in Tryon The world championship is clearly our number one goal as it is once again on home soil The home teams are often at a disadvantage because they have more pressure than everybody else but if you can win on home soil there is nothing better for the sport in your country Drs Ryan and Dora Ferris are moving to Newberg with their daughter Makenzie and dog Aspen Ryan and Dora are both originally from Washington State Ryan is a reproduction specialist and has been on faculty at Colorado State University for the last 7 years Dora is a sports medicine specialist and owned an equine sports medicine practice for the last 4 years in Colorado Equine Sports Medicine Summit Equine Inc 29895 NE Wilsonville Road Newberg Oregon 97132 Tel 971 281 4643 info summitequineinc com www summitequineinc com facebook com summitequineinc

GETTING TO KNOW JAY DUKE Rider Clinician Horseman By Lindsay Brock Jump Media Photo courtesy of Jay Duke F or some people riding training and dedicating their lives to horse sport is simply a job For others it is a passion Former Canadian Equestrian Team member Jay Duke falls into the latter category with ease Born into a family of riders and trainers in Calgary AB Duke himself is a competitor turned trainer clinician course designer and all around horseman and he could never see himself doing anything else There was no real start to my calling to be involved with horses said Duke 48 who started competing on the A rated show jumping circuit at eight years old The goal for me and for many of my peers was to ride on the Canadian Team and then go to the Olympics That was the whole reason we rode Unfortunately for me only part of that dream worked out but there was never any doubt in my mind that this sport was where I belonged Duke began riding at four years of age under the direction of his mother well known Alberta trainer Cheryl Anderson who has coached several notable Canadian riders including the likes of Mark Laskin former Canadian Show Jumping Team member and now its Chef d Equipe Duke also drew a connection to horses from his father Fred who came from Western riding roots and is a member of the Canadian Cutting Horse Hall of Fame As a young rider Duke had his eye firmly on the prize of representing his country on an international stage Starting his show career on the hallowed ground of Spruce Meadows in Calgary AB success came quickly for him In 1986 he was a member of Alberta s bronze medal show jumping team at the Continental Young Riders Championships Before attending the University of Alberta in Edmonton to study business marketing Duke capped a successful junior career in 1987 by winning the Junior Jumper Championship at the Spruce Meadows National tournament and the Junior Grand Prix at the Masters Additionally Duke was a four time Canadian Junior Champion in both the hunter and jumper ring which he maintains inspired his knack for versatility at a young age I am old school and we used to do a little bit of everything in my time said Duke To me a good rider can ride any horse in any class or division When you get on a horse and there s a jump in front of you you go jump it and that s it I think specializing as a rider just means you re limited Flexibility not only played a role in Duke s career in the show ring it often dictated how he acquired good horses His four legged talent didn t always come from conventional means Finding young horses in the field or bringing them into training off the race track was a necessity Duke learned from his mother s training business Jay Duke showing Grappa in California before the horse became one of the most successful hunters in the U S 54 Mister Brown was three when I got him recalled Duke of a horse he competed internationally for Canada He came straight off the track was jumping and winning in the 1 40m at Spruce Meadows at six and was on the team at the age of seven Another one that comes to mind is a horse called Quiz Z He was a warmblood stallion we bought out of a field and we had to get him on the trailer with a bucket of oats because he had not even worn a halter yet We started from the ground up with him and he became a very successful 1 45m horse November December 2017 www TheCompetitiveEquestrian com

Bringing horses along from such a young age is a process that requires a lot of patience but it is very rewarding to see them develop continued Duke who has been flipping horses for as long as he can remember When you see horses have long careers at whatever level it is a testament to your program because if you didn t do it right in the first six months you will end up with nothing It was a lifestyle change said Duke of the switch The horse industry is all consuming and shifting my focus has really revitalized me both emotionally and physically I really enjoy coaching but when I was a rider it was a challenge to do both well Now I feel that I can really focus on teaching and enjoy it Visiting the barns of young professionals and helping them grow their business and educate their riders is something I love After spending many winters competing in California Duke moved to the U S in 1993 to work on a full time basis with trainer Richard Keller While Duke s dreams of representing Canada in the Olympic Games never came to fruition his career at the international level was a noteworthy one A career year his 1994 season included earning the Leading Male Rider title at the Spruce Meadows North American tournament and making his Canadian Show Jumping Team debut with Nations Cup appearances at the Washington International Horse Show and the iconic National Horse Show riding Silhouette Duke approaches his clinic with an eagerness to impart wisdom but also to encourage every rider he encounters to success whether they compete over 1 0m or at the grand prix level According to Duke success is about attitude at any level In June of 1999 Duke was appointed trainer at Castle Cliff Farm in Sedalia CO just outside of Denver It was there that he added more hunter success stories to his r sum training horses such as King David and Caymus both of whom went on to win USEF Horse of the Year titles However Duke returned to Calgary in 2006 to concentrate on what he considered to be his calling developing young horses in the jumper ring That is when I bought several young horses to compete on including one named Grappa that I campaigned through to the grand prix level said Duke of one of his biggest success stories who won the Five Year Old Western Canadian Championship in 2009 at the Rocky Mountain Classic in Calgary AB He was sold in 2012 and is now known as Mindful one of the winningest High Performance Hunter and Derby horses in North America under the direction of Kelley Farmer In 2014 Duke hung up his show coat for good and retired from competition and training to shift his focus toward other endeavors It was then that he became a senior course designer with Equestrian Canada and began sharing his knowledge of training riding and competing across all levels at clinics throughout North America Anybody that has a positive attitude and wants to learn can be successful and that is what I find most enjoyable about clinics said Duke who regularly conducts clinics in Salt Lake City UT Seattle WA as well as Vancouver BC and Prince George BC Often times the lessons are not so different from the lower level to the higher level it s the expectations and technicalities that vary When I teach a clinic I ask every rider two questions what s your biggest struggle and what s your biggest strength From there I try to get the most from that horse and rider and produce a positive result where both did something they didn t think they were capable of doing Shifting his focus away from competition and placing it on teaching also helped Duke to learn something about himself He came to the realization that horse sport is not his only passion saying Of all the things I do what I do best is be a dad Even people who don t like me tell me that I am a good father joked Duke who has two daughters Karter 19 and Halle 14 Those two girls are everything to me Together with my girlfriend Christina we have created a life that is a balance between horses and family the two things that make me most happy in this world Jake Duke is a show jumping rider course designer clinician and Canadian Equestrian Team veteran Duke retired from competition in 2014 to put his extensive background training riders and horses of all levels to work as a clinician Duke is also a popular course designer holding his senior status with Equestrian Canada For more information about Jay Duke his clinics and course design availability visit jayduke com Jay Duke s oldest daughter Halle earning a 1 10m Jay Duke with his youngest daughter Karter at Super championship title at the 2017 Jump With Hope For Bowl 50 in 2016 at Levi s Stadium in Santa Clara CA Kids With Cancer Horse Show at Amberlea Meadows in Alberta Canada November December 2017 www TheCompetitiveEquestrian com Jay Duke and Grappa now known as Kelley Farmer s famed hunter mount Mindful competing at Calgary s Spruce Meadows 55

Generation Next T How Guy Thomas is Guiding the Future By Esther Hahn Guy Thomas and Jonkheer Z Photo by Alden Corrigan Media he apple doesn t fall too far from the tree It s a concept that equestrians are intensely familiar with even planning their entire riding careers around it For example a stallion with incredible jumping talent can almost guarantee progeny that will come close to match or even surpass his own abilities Therefore a rider seeks out certain bloodlines to maximize chances that the chosen horse s son or daughter will rise to the occasion But when it comes to the horses counterparts it s less of a precise formula that can predict the inheritance of the desire to ride Often the children of horse professionals seek divergent paths from those of their parents It s an exception then that trainer and grand prix rider Guy Thomas has followed in the footsteps of his father Butch Thomas Both father and son have represented New Zealand at the Olympics competed at the FEI World Cup Jumping Finals and won international grand prix titles And in the last few years as the elder Thomas has slowly eased into retirement the younger Thomas has stepped further into the boots as head trainer at the family s Willow Tree Farm based at Stanford University s historic Red Barn in California The continuation of this shift in roles has also played out on a larger scale After many years of Butch having the honor of serving as chef d equipe of the Zone 10 show jumping teams at the FEI North American Junior and Young Rider Championships this year saw Thomas make his debut in the role I was fortunate enough a week or so after the trial Morley Abey called me from Zone 10 and said that they wanted me to be the chef Thomas remembered And it was really quite flattering really because my father s done it numerous times and been incredibly successful with it Also it was a little intimidating because he s been so successful I wanted to try to continue what he d created Thomas and Willow Tree were already sending two riders to the championship event Natalie Dean on the A Team and Sophia Siegel on the B Team They usually try to stick to one of the trainers of the kids on the team explained Thomas of the selection process for the chef d equipe position Under Thomas s guidance all three Zone 10 show jumping teams the Young Rider the Junior and the Children s returned solid results The Young Rider team finished with a bronze medal Hannah Loly on the Junior team took home the silver medal in individual competition and the Children s went double gold with the win in the team competition and with Dylan Laiken going undefeated never dropping a single rail to score individual victory They all rode really well said Thomas of his Zone 10 riders All of the Californians as a whole were a little behind the eight ball just because of the weather The horses weren t used to it We for sure weren t used to it That put us a little at a disadvantage but no more than anyone else Everyone had to deal with the same conditions but it was hot it was brutally hot Hannah Loly and Amya de la Demi Lune Photo by Blue Moon Images 62 November December 2017

The team was a great example of a team Thomas continued Everyone was there pulling for everyone I tried to be as much hands on as I could but be out of the trainer s way If they needed something I was there to get it We all would walk the courses individually then some of us would have a powwow at the end and go over what we walked what they walked what we thought what they thought It was a great team atmosphere In his role Thomas worked as an organizer and as support to the riders everyday trainers There was a great group of trainers you had plenty of really good minds to pick said Thomas We were all stabled together in FEI I was in charge of going to the meetings the draw parties the office the entries for Zone 10 Then from there down everyone helps their own individual clients I decided the order in which our team was going to go who was going to be first who was going to be second so on and so forth We had some struggles for sure but we also had some pretty good riding as well The Zone 10 teams were relative rookies given that only one rider Sarah Baz had been to the Championships before I did it as a kid he revealed It took me six years to qualify one time I was slowly perfecting the win and choke because for five years I went to the last trial with the opportunity to be on the team and for five years in a row I did something in the final trial to fall out of contention I think it s a great progression to go from team to team to team Thomas added For myself personally I know it helped me because my third international team was the Olympics but I had that team experience of Harrisburg and Young Riders to fall back on I may have had a bad round but knew It s not about me today it s about pulling it together I ve got to go again and better my score for the other three The Championships have clearly played formative roles in Thomas s riding career so it s only fitting that it would once again propel Thomas to another level in his coaching I finally stepped out a little bit of the shadow Thomas noted I said to Dad when they called me I really wish they d pick you and I could be your assistant again But it was nice to know I could do it It was a long week a fun week a tiring week but I really enjoyed all of it Now they ve formed stronger friendships out of a week of just being there pulling on the same rope Thomas said of the Zone 10 riders I didn t have to be a bad cop or anything They all knew what we were there for they were all quite focused on it Thomas also brought invaluable experience as a former participant in the 1996 Championships when there was only one Young Riders team of five riders from each Zone Danielle Lean and Dexceminka Photo by Blue Moon Images Virginia Bonnie member of the Gold Medal winning Zone 10 Children s Team Photo by Blue Moon Images November December 2017 Virginia Bonnie member of the Gold Medal winning Zone 10 Children s Team Photo by Blue Moon Images 63

Gratitude Heartfelt Thanks T en full days after the panicked pounding on our door in the middle of the night that got us up to the terrifying sight of flames on the ridge line and billowing smoke in the incredible winds we are finally able to report that our beloved Diamond Mountain Stables has been spared and we are at long last able to begin making plans to head home We are obviously among the very lucky ones and there are simply no words to thank all the people who made it possible for us to say that Clearly all the first responders who worked so tirelessly and bravely have a special place in heaven waiting for them but unsurprisingly the horse community sprang into action in a way that has left me with overwhelming feelings of gratitude and appreciation Not only do we have a fire safety protocol in place at Diamond Mountain Stables but also our local equine community has an integrated fire policy for trailering and evacuation assistance for each other However none of our plans accounted for there being fires burning almost everywhere simultaneously north south east and west of us making it very difficult to even know which way to try to head for safety and we had never contemplated being without cell service Apparently over 40 cell phone service towers burned hampering communication for everyone affected when they needed it most C H E One of the last phone calls we were able to receive was from Haley Schwab who was awakened by her neighbor just in time to step out of her house before it burned to the ground like so many others escaping with the clothes on her back and whatever she had in her car It was really spooky loading horses both ours and mystery horses that had been evacuated to our place on trailers and sending them off into the smoky night to unknown destinations with no ability to communicate further Sadly we have enough fire experience to know to write names and phone numbers on halters and feet but luckily we have enough staff that every trailer load of horses was accompanied by a person who could stay with them Over the next 48 hours our horses and many others moved from one hastily constructed evacuation center or generous neighbors severely overburdened facility to another chased away as the fire raged essentially unabated air quality continued to deteriorate and road conditions steadily worsened Once cell and internet service were restored we were flooded with offers of assistance and among the people who so heroically came to our rescue were Peter McGregor who was the first to be able to get into the Napa Valley and who whisked 6 of our horses towards the heavenly refuge we have found at Rancho Polo Chris DeVere her husband Chris and Sharon Schmidt all arrived right behind Peter and drove 4 more horses to the desert as well as our toy hauler house trailer which was packed to the gills with trunks saddles bridles and my treasured little blue Fiat Aimee Hansen sent her trailer and took 6 horses to Kim Laursen s where Kerri and Larry Bettencourt met them and took 3 home to their farm and Jerry Dugan drove down from Reno the next day and brought the remaining 3 to the desert Chris Bearden took 7 more horses to Christiana Nolting s in Vacaville where Madchen Giesler Llywellen drove down from Minden and took them home to her beautiful farm Susanna Denham is housing several Diamond Mountain Stable horses at her place M in Petaluma now that she s moved back into it B Haley Schwab and Micaela Scarpulla worked as a team in near constant motion for three full days coordinating much of this frenzied activity as did Isabelle Nolden Maeve Curran and my momma who constantly remained with the biggest group of horses and the menagerie of barn pets Our neighbors and friends Marci Hall and Katie Duncan magically appeared in the night along with several other local trailers and not only transported our horses but offered both our horses and people refuge and our dear friends Becky and Kip Witter mobilized a group of horsemen from Woodside who headed into the fire in the knick of time as one of the largest single evacuation centers Valley Brook had to evacuate 160 horses as well as sheep goats mules etc I have absolutely no doubt I am omitting not just someone but many people who helped us as well as everyone who offered to but we simply cannot thank you enough Our relief in arriving at Rancho Polo was nearly indescribable and everyone here sprang into action with less than 24 hours notice Upon our straggling arrival 2 barns were ready for us our house trailer that lives here full time was open cleaned and hooked up ready for occupancy and our cottage was cleaned and stocked with groceries as well as enough pizza for our hungry tired troops thanks to ranch manager Mary Anguiamo and our neighbor Denise Verret and Mary Masterson also made her cottage available to us K F Unbelievably other than a few nicks and scrapes as well as weepy eyes and draining noses our horses seem to have survived unscathed and special thanks to Dr Jim Clark for being available to us as we arrived Never have we felt so blessed to be a part of our community and once again we extend our gratitude to all and our heartfelt condolences to all the people who were not as lucky as us A 66 Macella O Neil November December 2017

Hock Arthritis Treatments By Dr Tara O Brien of Oakhurst Equine Veterinary Services A s the show season progresses you may notice that your horse doesn t feel right and or is not performing at their peak level They may begin to look stiff but warm up out of it Or perhaps your horse is not turning and stopping as well or has less power behind The farrier may be having more trouble picking up the hindlimbs to shoe your horse Lead changes may be more difficult and they may crossfire These can all be subtle signs of hock pain The hock or tarsus is a complex joint It is actually made up of six bones four major joints and many ligaments and tendons The lower joint is the tarso metatarsal joint and the middle joint is the distal intertasal joint The lower and middle joints communicate in 39 of horses There are two upper joints the proximal intertarsal joint and the tibial tarsal joint that always communicate The three lower joints tarsal metatarsal distal inter tarsal and the proximal intertarsal joint are low motion joints meaning they do not have a lot of movement and act primarily in weight bearing The tibial tarsal joint is a high motion joint and this is where most of the motion of the hock occurs The hock flexes and extends with the stifle due to the reciprocal apparatus and flexion of the hock causes passive flexion of the fetlock Dr Tara O Brien of Oakhurst Equine Veterinary Services wrote this article for Flying Changes Dr O Brien is graduate of the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine and has completed advanced training in lameness and ultrasound though ISELP the International Society of Equine Locomotor Pathology 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 emergency service with seven day per week routine care available by calling 503 554 0227 More information available online at www oakhurstequine com 70 How Do I Know if My Horse Might Have Hock Pain The first step is a physical exam We look at general conformation keeping in mind some types of conformation such as sickle hocks are predisposed to having trouble with their hocks Often we will see effusion or joint swelling in the tibial tarsal joint This is referred to as a bog spavin and is not necessarily associated with lameness If the cause of the joint swelling is an osteochondral OCD lesion infection or bleeding into tibial tarsal joint then the swelling may be associated with lameness Firm swelling caused by soft tissue fibrosis and new bone formation may be palpable on the lower dorsal to medial aspect of the hock This indicates arthritis of the lower hock joints referred to as bone spavin Localized swelling on the medial or lateral side can indicate collateral ligament injures Swelling along the soft tissues below the point of the hock curb can indicate a tendon or ligament strain as well Many horses that have hock pain will exhibit a stabby gait when observed from behind swinging the leg medially during protraction and then laterally on landing They also often have a shortened cranial phase of their stride when observed from the side Although theses gait abnormalities are commonly seen in horses with hock pain many other types of hindlimb pain can present the same way Some horses with distal hock pain may exhibit a response to the Churchill test which applies pressure to the medial splint bone but it can be very dependent on the veterinarian technique Lastly upper limb flexion sometimes called a spavin test regularly produces a positive response in horses with hock pain It s important to remember that this test also flexes the stifle and hip so it does not specifically isolate the hock joint In some cases flexion of the opposite limb may produce increased lameness in the affected leg This is thought to be due to bone pain or joint compression in weight bearing All of these observations give us information that is helpful but diagnostic analgesia or blocking may still be necessary to isolate pain to the hock region Both joint blocks and nerve blocks can be used isolate the hock Your veterinarian will often block nerves lower in the leg to rule out distal limb problems in the foot fetlock or suspensory They may then choose to block individual joints starting the with tarsal metatarsal joint or progress to blocking the nerves above the hock to block the entire joint November December 2017 www TheCompetitiveEquestrian com

Fracture of the Third Tarsal Bone Incomplete Ossification of the Tarsal Bones Osteoarthritis of the Distal Hock Joints Common Causes of Hock Pain Osteoarthritis of the Distal Hock Joints Osteoarthritis of the lower joints of the hock is one of the most common causes of lameness in the horse It is often referred to as bone spavin Juvenile bone spavin occurs in horses that are less than two years old It can be related to abnormally developed bones in the hock the tarsal bones can be crushed in dysmature foals Some younger performance horses will have hock pain that is not yet associated with changes on radiographs often called blind spavin Most older horses with lower hock pain will have changes on radiographs of the hock that include formation of new bone lytic areas of bone narrowed joint spaces and sclerotic bone This is caused by trauma or normal wear and tear Reining rodeo events jumping and dressage are just a few examples of disciplines that put strain on the hock joints Many horses can stay in competition and be used at their current level of work even with distal hock arthritis Treatment of distal hock pain consists mainly of joint injections of corticosteroids with or without hyaluronic acid and oral NSAIDs bute or firocoxib as needed Some horses that have extensive boney lesions may benefit from treatment with bisphosphonates such as Tildren or Os phos to modify the bone remodeling process and decrease bone pain Some horses with chronic lower hock pain may be candidates for fusion of the lower joints This can be done surgically by drilling across the joints or by using a laser Chemical fusion involves injecting alcohol or another substance into the joints Other systemic medications aimed at maintaining joint health such as pentosan adequan legend and cosequin may also be beneficial November December 2017 Arthritis of the tibial tarsal joint or the talocalcaneal joint both part of the upper joint of the hock occur less frequently and can be more difficult to treat Osteochondral Dissecans OCD OCD is a developmental disease that affects joint cartilage and the underlying bone In affected horses the cartilage does not form normally and flaps of bone and cartilage can develop and sometimes break off into the joint Multiple factors play a role in OCD formation including genetics growth rate nutrition and exercise The hock has multiple sites in the tibial tarsal joint that can develop OCD lesions These lesions develop in young growing horses and most do not spontaneously heal after five months of age The most common clinical sign seen with OCD in the tibial tarsal joint is effusion Lameness is not always present but may develop later If these lesions are removed early they carry an excellent prognosis for athletic performance OCDs that are causes of lameness in older show horses often have a more guarded prognosis because loose fragments often cause severe cartilage damage that is still present even after surgery These are just two common causes of lameness related to the hock joint Fractures and tendon and ligament injuries may also occur in the hind limbs Fracture of the Third Tarsal Bone The most important point is if you think your horse has hock pain have you veterinarian evaluate your horse With a correct diagnosis and management plan you and your horse can get you back to top form www TheCompetitiveEquestrian com 71

his first riding lesson at a small farm on the Cape where his cousin kept her horses That was the beginning of what became Metell s calling I was involved with so many sports as a kid but all I kept asking for was a pony said Metell My mom wasn t sure if I was a little boy who really wanted a dirt bike or a pony so she wasn t willing to take too much a of a chance on it yet My first pony was a Mustang we pulled off a truck from Mexico and paid 500 for Her name was Magic and we gave her the show name Abracadabra continued Metell I fell off her almost every day in the beginning but she became a really competitive children s hunter pony at the local level Metell s experienced with Magic convinced his mother Julene and father Mike that their son was hooked on horses Training with Kathy Fletcher of Grazing Fields Farm in Buzzards Bay MA Metell s parents leased him a pony named Rock Steady That pony would carry Metell to his first USEF Pony Finals but it would not be his last championships experience In 2008 Metell started training as a working student with renowned equitation trainer Andre Dignelli at Heritage Farm in Katonah NY During that year Metell placed second in the Platinum Performance U S Equestrian Federation Talent Search USET Finals East I was feeling a little burnt out on equitation when I came to ride with Andre admitted Metell He made me love it again I would not be where I am today without Kathy but Andre really took me to the next level With one more year of eligibility left in the USET ranks Metell set a goal to again qualify for the 2009 Final Dignelli partnered him with a horse named Pioneer a former grand prix show jumper that was to be sold for one last shot at equitation fame Metell and Pioneer won the USET Finals that year and he still considers it to be one of the most important days of his life Looking back on a formative two years with Dignelli Metell recalls One of the most important things I learned from him is that when you re warming up for a class and standing at the ingate you want someone perfectly calm who can give you a clear concise sentence or two of advice Andre is exactly that He instills confidence that you can win any class I have tried to use those tools myself and always go into the ring with calmness and clarity After concluding his junior career on the highest of notes Metell briefly realigned his priorities from horses to education He enrolled at Sacred Heart University in Fairfield CT and finished four years of college with a dual degree in finance and business economics My mom was a big influence on me regarding college said Metell who like many talented young riders had to decide whether to pursue college or 74 November December 2017 www TheCompetitiveEquestrian com

turn professional I did not want to go but she always instilled in me that riding wasn t going anywhere and you never know when you might wake up one day and want to do something else I am happy that I listened to her continued Metell In our business you need support from a lot of people who have means and they are usually smart educated people It s a benefit for me and for any young rider to have an education that can help advance your business To me you need more than the ability to get on the back of a horse to make it During college Metell returned to Heritage Farm each summer as a working student and upon graduation accepted a job at Kaplow Equine Insurance After several months Metell returned to work full time with Dignelli as an assistant trainer we couldn t be happier with her Metell considers his first grand prix win to be the best moment of his riding career to date and plans to see where Donchalant can take him I will never forget the feeling of winning my first grand prix he said After the success we had this summer all I want to do is jump her every Sunday but I have waited a long time for this and I want to do right by the horse For me it was a long time coming to get a horse like this mare and be winning in the big ring I m just soaking it all in In 2013 Metell began looking for more opportunities with young jumpers and transitioned to ride for Theodore Teddy Demetriou of Wolver Hollow based in Chester NY I really wanted to ride more and Teddy was importing a lot of horses from Europe at the time said Metell Together we imported Donchalant from The Netherlands in the spring of 2017 Donchalant a nine year old Dutch Warmblood mare Larino x Amaretto I that had previously been campaigned in the international ranks by Rodrigo Silva Morgado of Portugal carried Metell to all three of his grand prix victories at the Vermont Summer Festival this summer The pair had only been partnered together for a few weeks following Donchalant s release from U S quarantine when they started winning When I first saw her we were in a tiny indoor arena where you could barely jump a three stride recalled Metell of their initial meeting in Europe We jumped a few jumps she seemed like the right type for my riding style and that was that I didn t even sit on her again after five or six jumps She is obviously more than we could have hoped for We bought her as a horse to do exactly what she did in Vermont win grand prix classes and obviously November December 2017 www TheCompetitiveEquestrian com 75

Lameness in the Sport Horse By Lindsay Brock Jump Media Part 1 My horse feels off but why Most riders across varying disciplines have experienced the uneasy and tense feeling of worry when a once promising and successful horse is not quite right Equine athletes are just that athletes susceptible to soreness lameness and even injury as a result of rigorous competition and preparation For sport horses competing in show jumping eventing and dressage disciplines in particular the expectations are high and certain injuries become an ever looming possibility This article is the first exploration into the most common lameness problems in sport horses as part of a three part series in cooperation with the world renowned veterinarians of Palm Beach Equine Clinic PBEC based in Wellington FL Dr Ryan Lukens who originally hails from Lebanon OH is a 2012 graduate of The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine With a specific interest in sports medicine and sport horse lameness Dr Lukens will help us to pinpoint what lameness issues most commonly affect sport horses and why Subtle Lameness For Dr Lukens and any veterinarian endeavoring to solve a lameness problem the most common issues are not always easily detected making sport horse injuries tricky from both a diagnostic and treatment perspective The most common lameness issues that we see in sport horses are not easily detected by spectators they are subtle said Dr Lukens who is a fourth generation veterinarian Riders may come to us saying that their horse feels weak behind or is heavy on the bit or not smooth in the changes and it is up to us to find out why While riders may be the first to sense a problem the most obvious sign of lameness in sport horses presents as decrease in performance When jumpers start pulling rails or dressage and event horses begin receiving lower scores all signs point toward a problem Horses have an enormous ability to compensate for pain continued Lukens of a horse s natural ability to offset a problem in order to seek comfort A small amount of pain may not make a horse unsound but it can cause the horse to use its body in a slightly different way for weeks or even months without a drop in performance This altered movement 76 can eventually lead to an injury of compensation and negatively affect training and competition On the flip side some injuries arise suddenly and present a serious and obvious threat to a horse s soundness and performance According to Dr Lukens one of the most common is a the dreaded solar foot abscess While severe in its arrival an abscess is also easily diagnosed with the help of a veterinarian and relatively quick to treat making a return to normal work and competition a regular outcome for many horses What Does It Mean For the lameness issue that is not so cut and dry as an abscess one must look deeper than general soundness At the first sign of a problem a comprehensive clinical examination at rest by a veterinarian is essential Despite certain symptoms that may point to a potential problem it is important for a horse to be assessed as a whole first Following an initial exam the presenting lameness or problem will likely begin to reveal a possible cause Historically the most common lameness in any discipline is a problem in the front feet said Dr Lukens who joined the team at PBEC in 2012 to specialize in sports medicine this is a bit repetitive from the opening paragraph not sure it s needed Problems often include joint or bursa inflammation bruising or straining of ligaments and tendons Jumpers undergo stress on their front legs on the landing side of a fence as well as torque placed on joints when making quick tight turns As a result many commonly sustain injuries that include the thoracic back spine inflammation of the accessory ligament of the deep digital flexor tendon in the forelimb deep digital flexor tendonitis within the forelimb hoof capsule and inflammation of the suspensory ligament in the forelimb While jumper injuries are common in the forelimbs Dr Lukens explains that dressage injuries are also commonly isolated to the hind limbs Dressage requires an uphill way of going placing more stress on the musculoskeletal system of a horse s hind end resulting in inflammation or tearing of the top of the suspensory ligament suspensory branch injuries degenerative joint disease of the hock inflammation of the digital flexor tendon sheath and sacroiliac joint back and neck stress YOUR NEWS YOUR SPORT YOUR BUSINESS November Decmber 2017

Dr Ryan Lukens of Palm Beach Equine Clinic based in Wellington FL with patient Wolfi One of the most common lameness issues in sport horses presents in the forelimbs especially in jumpers Finally eventers commonly sustain suspensory and tendon damage as well as blunt force trauma injuries due to the demanding nature of their sport The varied terrain the footing changes and the demands are high within eventing Most often horses will present with inflammation of a suspensory ligament an injury to a suspensory branch inflammation to a superficial digital flexor tendon stifle trauma as well as back and sacroiliac joint region pain Prevention I would say the majority of competition horse lameness is the result of repetitive micro trauma said Dr Lukens The horse is a complicated athlete whose nervous system needs to work in sync with its musculoskeletal system This athlete needs to have practiced precise repeatable movements with subtle cues from its rider while adapting to changes in its environment To help horses who are regularly competing at any level Dr Lukens recommends several tips to ease the effects of trauma and lower the risk of lameness including the implementation of proper nutrition a smart training schedule with rest and recovery and routine veterinary maintenance I enjoy deciphering lameness said Dr Lukens who is currently pursuing a certificate in Veterinary Medical Manipulation to further his experience in pinpointing lameness It is exciting to be able to fix a subtle change in gait before it November December 2017 Dr Richard Wheeler of Palm Beach Equine Clinic performs a flexion test to access soundness in a patient affects scores at competition In the end what I want to offer my clients is the option to keep their horses in the ring and competing happily Coming Up This series continues in the January February 2018 issue of Competitive Equestrian with a discussion of the most common diagnostic tests and standard treatments of lameness in sport horses with Dr Kathleen Timmins The three part series will conclude with an outline of the best rehabilitation for sport horses and an outlook on the typical prognosis with Dr Samantha Miles and Dr Richard Wheeler Stay tuned for more from the veterinarians at PBEC About Palm Beach Equine Clinic The veterinarians and staff of PBEC are respected throughout the industry for their advanced level of care and steadfast commitment to horses and owners With 28 skilled veterinarians on staff including three board certified surgeons internal medicine specialists and one of very few board certified equine radiologists in the country PBEC leads the way in new innovative diagnostic imaging and treatments Palm Beach Equine Clinic provides experience knowledge availability and the very best care for its clients To find out more please visit www equineclinic com or call 561 793 1599 Like them on Facebook to follow along on what happens in Wellington and more and get news from their Twitter YOUR NEWS YOUR SPORT YOUR BUSINESS 77

The fireplace in the Woodbrook clubhouse is a fixture that sticks in the minds of generations Our hunt has several flights The first field jumps anything that doesn t run fast enough The second follows and may not jump YOU WANT THE HILLTOP FIELD for your first adventure and if even that proves heady for your mount there are always members happy to take a quieter ride cross country A slow relaxed introduction is always the best experience and builds confidence in both of you YOUR HAUTE What to wear for the occasion We don t ask that you look like an escapee from Ledyard but britches tall boots and a suitable hacking jacket are required if you have them It goes without saying that you should be wearing a helmet Electric pink splint boots are unacceptable Hunt attire is meant to be subtle and conservative APRES THE HUNT A chance to meet fellow riders and experience our Breakfast cuisine We gather at the Club and for a ridiculously small fee enjoy a meal together It s a chance to discuss the day answer questions and get to know the membership For us it s a chance to encourage your further participation We are proselytizers at heart OPTIONAL HOMEWORK Riding to Hounds in America by William Wadsworth This remains the most instructive and humorous guide written on the subject andis the hunting bible for many of us You can obtain a copy from Chronicle of the Horse As an alternative join the Club and we ll give you one There s also a lot of great information on the Master of Foxhounds website as well as our Woodbrook Hunt Club website and our Facebook page November 2017 The clubhouse is on the National Parks Department s Register of Historic Places and pictures from the early days of the club show groups of fox hunters warming themselves by the fire there are game nights and cocktail parties board meetings and best of all glamorous riders weary damp and smiling gathered around the fireplace while they eat the traditional post hunt breakfast It can come as no surprise that foxhunting during the Pacific Northwest winter is wet and cold The club just celebrated it s 90th anniversary and decades of settling starlings nesting windstorms and falling branches caused the fireplace to smoke and members to worry about the structural safety of the chimney A few fires made the clubhouse so unpleasant that members chose to take their meals outside back into the rain they d just hunted through The margins of the Woodbrook budget are thin the Board and Masters work hard to ensure that the hounds and grounds are well maintained and they strive to keep membership affordable but the bids for replacing the chimney and fireplace reflected the need for a large fundraising effort that in years past would have channeled a great deal of energy and budget away from the Board s primary mission of good hunting and happy hounds Thanks to the innovation and foresight of a dedicated team including the MFH s and the board of directors the hunt was able to turn to a new body the Woodbrook Foxhound Foundation for support The Woodbrook Foxhound Foundation s mission is to raise funds to assist in the preservation of mounted hunting through projects related to historic buildings native land conservation and education As a 501 c 3 non profit the Foundation devotes their efforts to fundraising and supporting projects essential to a vibrant hunt culture and protecting the native prairies that provide the hunt territory The Woodbrook clubhouse is a historic building and craftsmanship of the structure is apparent in it s woodworked trusses and traditional finish work Repairs in keeping with the building s character would be neither www WoodbrookHunt Club com simple nor cheap The Foundation led by President Margo Forstrom organized a Fund an Item paddle raise at the 90th annual hunt ball last year The effort was a huge success The Woodbrook Hunt Club then petitioned the Foundation for funds to assist with the fireplace project Earl McNally the WHC Buildings Grounds Chairman got bids and selected a contractor who understood the heritage of the building and the cost of repairs was shared by both Woodbrook and the Foundation The clubhouse was closed to members for the end of the summer while the rebuilding was underway At the end of September just before the beginning of Woodbrook s 91st hunt season the clubhous was reopened with a champagne reception t honor the donors the history and of course the fireplace Margo Forstrom and WHC President Debbie Flynn lit the inaugural fire together after Margo said a few words about the Foundation and all attending lifted glasses in thanks and good cheer Carol Masters one of Woodbrook Hunt Club s elder members and a devoted supporter of both the Club and the Foundation came to see the lighting and she shared stories of old gatherings around the fire As Woodbrook moves into new decades there is even more pleasure to be gained from tradition and learning the stories sometimes scandalous of those who paved the way for nearly a century of foxhunting With the support of the Woodbrook Foxhound Foundation the Woodbrook Hunt Club can continue to ensure quality hunting and fox hunters in the Pacific Northwest can expect another century of great sport The thrill of watchin hounds work and giving chase even at a brisk working trot keeps you warm and when the field turns to hack home and the chill starts to wick through your coat along with the rain you can know there s a fire waiting for you at the clubhouse 95
