A Word from Wendy

Wendy
will
return
with
new
“words”
in
October
issue.

In
her
absence,
she’s
asked
student
Lindsay
Wong
to
share
her
story

about
being
faced
with
making
a
decision
between
school
and
her
life
with
horses.



Changes

by
Lindsay
Wong

For
 each
 of
 us,
 life
 has
 a
 pattern,
 which
 is
 fortunate,
 for
 otherwise
 life
 would
 be
 pretty
confusing.

Deep
within
us
we
have
 the
 need
 to
 know
 of
 a
 few
 things
 we
 can
 depend
 on.
 Change
 and
 the
 unexpected
 are
 good
 too.
 They
 furnish
 the
 savor,
 the
 salt ,
 and
 the
 spice
 of
 life.
 But
 it
 is
 only
 because
of
the
familiar
pattern,
the
things
 that
we
can
count
upon
every
day,
that
the
 sudden
 changes
 and
 the
 unexpected
 happenings
are
pleasant .
We
could
see
no
 meaning
in
life
without
a
pattern.

We
can
 depend
 on
 the
 sun
 to
 set
 and
 the
 moon
 to
 rise.
 We
 know
 that
 cool
 breezes
 will
 follow
waves
of
heat ,
and
that
each
season
 of
 the
 year
 will
 come
 in
 proper
 turn.
 These
 are
 the
 things
 that
 give
 us
 con9i‐ dence.
They
are
the
foundations
of
faith.



These
 times
 taught
 me
 more
 than
 any
 lesson
 in
 AP
 Physics
 could
 ever
 teach
 me.

 Coming
all
the
way
from
when
my
trainer
 sarcastically
 suggested
 jumping
 off
 of
 a
 large
bridge
based
on
my
trip
in
the
USET
 to
consistently
ribboning
at
WEF
with
my
 jumper
 gives
 me
 more
 satisfaction
 than
 any

‘A’

in
Calculus
ever
could.



 So,
 as
 my
 junior
 riding
 career
 comes
 to
 an
 end,
 I
 reminisce
 upon
 these
 memories,
 the
 lifelong
 friends,
 and
 the
 abundance
 of
 knowledge
 I
 have
 acquired
 from
 my
 time
 spent
 around
 horses.
 
 
 At
 the
 same
 time,
 as
 I
 look
 back,
 ever
 so
 grateful
 for
 the
 advice,
 encouragement
 and
 support
 I
 received
 from
my
trainers,
I
can’t
help
but
wonder
if
 they
will
continue
to
hold
a
special
place
in
 my
 life
 as
 I
 travel
 across
 the
 country
 to
 attend
 school.
 
 Or
 will
 our
 memories
 and
 friendships
 fade
 and
 change,
 just
 as
 fall
 changes
 into
 winter?
 
 The
 latter
 I
 hope
 proves
itself
to
be
false.

 As
I
prepare
for
one
of
the
greatest
changes
 in
my
life,
college,
I
pack
my
belongings
and
 leave
 behind
 my
 pattern
 in
 life
 and
 what
 I
 have
 grown
 to
 depend
 on,
 I
 begin
 to
 close
 the
chapter
of
my
junior
riding
career.

Yet,
I
 have
 to
 ask
 myself
 the
 dreaded
 question:
 am
 I
 not
 just
 closing
 the
 chapter
 of
 junior
 riding,
 but
 of
 riding
 all
 together?
 
 Or
 one
 day
 will
 I
 be
 able
 to
 open
 the
 chapter
 and
 begin
my
amateur
riding
career? Tupac
 Shakur
 once
 rapped
 about
 seeing


change
in
his
1995
song
entitled
“Changes”,


he
 said
 “I
 see
 no
 changes,
 wake
 up
 in
 the
 morning
and
I
ask
myself
is
life
worth
living
 should
 I
 blast
 myself…
 And
 although
 it
 seems
 heaven
 sent,
 we
 ain't
 ready
 to
 see
 a
 black
 President”.
 
 Fourteen
 years
 after
 Shakur
 rapped
 about
 seeing
 a
 “black
 presi‐ dent”,
 Barack
 Obama
 became
 the
 9irst
 African‐American
 to
 win
 the
 White
 House
 using
the
slogan
“the
change
we
need”.
 Regardless
 of
 the
 type
 of
 change
 they
 are
 talking
 about,
 change
 is
 imminent.

 Although
 I
 am
 not
 sure
 what
 the
 future
 holds
 for
 me,
 or
 my
 riding,
 what
 I
 am
 sure
 about
 is
 that
 everyone
 needs
 change.
 I
 like
 to
think
of
the
upcoming
changes
in
my
life
 not
 as
 a
 hindrance,
 but
 more
 of
 as
 an


For
 me,
 my
 pattern
 in
 life
 has
 been
 quite
 cyclical
 thus
 far:
 attend
 school
 (when
 not
 at
 a
 horse
 show),
 do
 homework
 (only
 after
 sunset
 and
 idling
 on
 Facebook
 for
 hours),
 sleep
 (when
 caffeine
 is
 not
 present),
 eat
 (when
 I
 have
 time),
 drive
 to
 Orlando
 to
 ride
 my
 horses
 (rarely
 did
 I
 9ind
 time),
 and
 9inally,
 travel
 to
 horse‐ shows
(ironically
when
not
serving
Satur‐ day
 schools
 for
 missing
 school
 to
 horse‐ show).
It
appears
as
though
the
backbone
 of
 my
 life
 was
 school
 and
 horses,
 and
 consequently
 a
 Domino
 Effect
 was
 created
when
one
started
to
disintegrate.

 So,
naturally,
riding
has
been
one
of
those
 things
 I
 could
 depend
 on,
 it
 gave
 life
 a
 much
 needed
 sense
 of
 structure
 and
 stability.

But ,
as
I
change
and
venture
into
 the
 next
 part
 in
 my
 life,
 I
 leave
 behind
 something
 extraordinarily
 signi9icant ,
 what
has
molded
me
into
the
person
I
am
 today
 and
 perhaps
 what
 de9ines
 me
 for
 who
 I
 am
 best
 –
 horses.
 Earlier
 I
 mentioned
 how
 change
 and
 the
 unex‐ pected
 are
 good,
 but
 I
 can’t
 help
 but
 wonder
if
this
change
is
for
the
better. 

 Although
 I
 never
 traveled
 to
 Indoors,
 competed
 in
 any
 of
 the
 9inals,
 or
 showed
 in
 the
 Junior
 Jumpers,
 I
 look
 back
 on
 my
 junior
 riding
 career
 and
 see
 a
 whirlwind


of
times
for
which
I
can’t
help
but
smile
at .

 opport uni t y
 to
 grow, 
 to
 be
 expl oratory, 
 to


step
 out
 of
 my
 comfort
 zone
 and
 attempt
 break
 barriers
 I
 did
 not
 embark
 upon
 in
 High
School.

 We
 have
 to
 welcome
 change
 with
 open
 arms
 instead
 of
 going
 into
 situations
 with
 preconceived
 notions.
 To
 quote
 Steve
 Jobs,
 Apple
 CEO,
 "Here's
 to
 the
 crazy
 ones…
 The
 ones
who
see
things
differently.
They're
not
 fond
 of
 rules,
 and
 they
 have
 no
 respect
 for
 the
 status
 quo.
 You
 can
 quote
 them,
 disagree
 with
 them,
 glorify
 and
 vilify
 them.
 About
 the
 only
 thing
 you
 can't
 do
 is
 ignore
 them
 because
 they
 change
 things.
 
 They
 push
the
human
race
forward”.

For,
without
 change,
 what
 would
 life
 be
 but
 a
 static
 pattern
of
imprisonment
from
routine?

North
American
Young
Riders
Championship

B y
Michael
Murphy

The
 NAYRC
 is
 the
 premier
 equestrian
 event
 for
 junior
 riders
 in
 North
 America.
 It
 is
 composed
 of
 show
 jumping,
 dressage,
 eventing,
 reining
 and
 vaulting.
 
 I
 competed


this
year
in
KY
in
the
show
jumping
section
on
the
Young
Rider
team
for
ZONE
4.
We


jumped
 a
 course
 of
 approximately
 1.50m
 in
 height
 with
 spreads
 up
 to
 1.65m
 and
 15ft .
 open
 water
 every
 day
 for
 4
 days.
 One
 of
 the
 quali9ications
 for
 making
 your


zone’s
team
is
based
off
of
prize
money
won
in
classes
jumping
1.45m
or
higher.
The


United
States
is
divided
into
12
zones
with
ZONE
4
consisting
of
six
states:
Alabama,


Florida,
Georgia,
Mississippi,
South
Carolina,
and
Tennessee.

I
had
a
late
start
on
collecting
money
for
my
place
on
the
team.
My
horse
and
I
were
 still
 getting
 to
 know
 each
 other
 so
 we
 started
 out
 in
 the
 medium
 junior
 jumpers.
 As
 the
 circuit
 progressed
 we
 moved
 to
 the
 highs
 and
 then
 to
 the
 open
 jumper
 classes.


We
9inally
started
to
peak
in
May.
We
had
moved
into
the
Grand
Prix’s
and
turned
in


several
clear
rounds.
To
be
eligible
to
compete
in
NAYRC,
you
must
have
a
certi9icate


of
 capability.
 To
 achieve
 your
 certi9icate,
 you
 must
 complete
 a
 course
 at
 1.45m
 or


higher
with
4
faults
or
less
in
the
class.
Achieving
the
clear
rounds
at
the
Grand
Prix


level
enabled
me
to
obtain
my
certi9icate.


Showing
 under
 FEI
 rules
 is
 much
 different
 then
 USEF
 rules.
 In
 FEI,
 your
 horse
 can
 NOT
show
on
medication
nor
can
they
have
any
traces
of
medication
in
their
system.
 Also,
 FEI
 was
 allowed
 to
 drug
 test
 riders
 at
 any
 time.
 This
 is
 a
 very
 controversial
 topic
 because
 in
 the
 past ,
 people
 that
 were
 on
 heart
 medication
 were
 considered
 to


be
 on
 “steroids”
 in
 the
 sports
 world,
 which
 would
 lead
 to
 a
 positive
 drug
 test .
 For


those
 competing
 on
 teams,
 the
 whole
 team
 is
 affected.
 If
 your
 team
 was
 to
 win
 Medal
and
you
tested
positive,
your
team
would
be
forced
to
forfeit
their
medal.


Gold


The
 week
 was
 very
 strenuous.
 We
 had
 team
 meetings
 every
 day,
 along
 with
 riding
 our
 horses,
 attending
 the
 mandatory
 meetings
 and
 making
 sure
 our
 horses
 were
 in
 top
condition
every
time
they
left
the
stall.
Every
competitor
who
chose
to
show
had


to
attend
the
soundness
jog.
You
began
by
walking
up
to
a
set
of
9lowers
and
handing


the
FEI
Veterinarian
your
horse’s
passport .
They ’d
walk
around
your
horse
checking
 that
 its
 markings
 matched
 those
 in
 the
 passport ,
 then
 instruct
 you
 to
 jog
 to
 another
 set
 of
 9lowers
 at
 the
 other
 end
 of
 the
 pathway.
 You’d
 then
 jog
 your
 horse
 back,
 stopping
 at
 the
 set
 of
 9lowers
 once
 again.
 The
 vet
 would
 then
 tell
 you
 if
 your
 horse
 passed
the
jog
or
if
you
had
to
re‐jog
the
next
morning.
This
is
where
the
medication
 rule
 can
 make
 a
 difference.
 Most
 horses
 competing
 at
 that
 level
 are
 older
 and
 more
 seasoned.
They
are
used
to
showing
on
a
little
medication
to
stay
sound
and
because
 they
weren’t
on
any
medication
previous
to
the
jog,
some
were
a
little
sore.
Problem
 is,
if
your
horse
doesn’t
pass
the
jog,
you
don’t
get
to
show.


It
 was
 my
 1st
 year
 competing
 on
 a
 team.
 You
 have
 to
 think
 of
 the
 whole
 team
 in
 the
 decisions
 you
 make,
 rather
 than
 yourself
 as
 an
 individual.
 Also,
 watching
 the
 top
 riders
 from
 all
 across
 North
 America
 forces
 you
 to
 raise
 your
 level
 of
 riding
 if
 you
 want
to
be
successful.
To
be
at
a
top
level
of
riding
consistently,
you
have
to
compete
 against
them
consistently.


Even
though
I
didn’t
walk

away
with
a
medal,
it
was
a

great
learning
experience.

obvious.
 
 However,
 there
 are


those
 that
 have
 utilized
 the
 hay
 room
 for
 other
 creative
 purposes,
 which
 brings
 us
 to
the
birth
of
Central

Equestrian’s
 new
gossip
column,
appropriately
named
 ‘The
Hay
Stall’.

hay seems


Latest
word
in
The
Hay
Stall
is….

Miss
 Pitchfork
 has
 discovered
 that
 some‐ one
 was
 caught
 in
 the
 hay
 stall
 with
 their
 breeches
 down
 ( you
 know
 who
 you
 are).

 A
word
of
advice:
If
you’re
going
to
play
in
 the
hay
you
ought
to
watch
for
wandering
 grooms
 and
 other
 innocent
 witnesses.

 ‘Honorable
Mentions
for
Indiscretions’
go
 to
 a
 certain
 trainer
 who
 is
 rumored
 to
 be
 having
 an
 affair;
 the
 local
 wife
 and
 mother
 who’s
 been
 bouncing
 around
 barns
 (and
 hay
 stalls)
 all
 over
 the
 area‐
 but
 another
 matter
 is
 most
 perplexing:
 Are
 you
 an
 amateur
 or
 professional?
 
 I
 know
 the
 technical
 answer
 to
 this
 ques‐ tion
but
I’m
not
sure
you
do.

The
best
was
 saved
 for
 last
 and
 Miss
 Pitchfork
 poses
 the
 question:
 "Is
 it
 appropriate
 for
 a
 professional
 to
 ride
 in
 bikini
 tops
 and
 post
 nude
 photos
 of
 oneself
 hiding
 behind
 trees
 on
 the
 internet?"
 Ms
 Pitchfork
 thinks
 not ,
 let’s
 keep
 some
 class
 in
 the
 sport .
 
 On
 a
 lighter
 and
 more
 positive
 note,
 there’s
 been
 talk
 about
 an
 Orlando
 area
 trainer
 thinking
 of
 movin’
 into
 some
 bigger
 ‘digs
 and
 while
 we’re
 on
 the
 subject
 of
 moving,
 congratulations
 to
 a
 successful
 young
 upcoming
 GP
 rider,
 trainer
and
reality
star
who
has
expanded
 the
 family
 business
 to
 points
 north
 for
 summer‐fall
 season.
 
 Other
 congratula‐ tions
 and
 best
 wishes
 to
 a
 local
 GP
 rider
 who
is
engaged
to
his
long‐time
girlfriend


and
9inal
congratulations
to
a
local
trainer


who
 decided
 to
 call
 the
 exterminator
 after
 realizing
 there
 were
 pests
 in
 the
 Orlando
 area.
 Thanks
 for
 saving
 others
 the
trouble!

Until
 next
 month,
 keep
 your
 hay
 stalls
 clean
 and
 if
 that’s
 a
 problem,
 write
 to
 Ms.
 Pitchfork
for
a
helping
hand!

B y
Courtney
Weinzimer

I
 can
 think
 of
 several
 retail
 horse
 care
 products
 that
 I
 love,
 but
 in
 the
 pursuit
 of
 saving
 a
 few
 bucks
 or
 (more
 importantly
 in
my
opinion)
seeking
alternatives
to
the
 potentially
 harmful
 additives
 and
 chemi‐ cals
 often
 found
 in
 many
 of
 the
 retail
 products,
 I
 have
 experimented
 with
 various
 ingredients
 and
 recipes
 recom‐ mended
 by
 others
 who’ve
 had
 success
 in
 their
 ongoing
 battles
 with
 issues
 like
 thrush,
 scratches,
 itchy
 skin
 and
 biting
 insects.

So
I
asked
several
people
to
share
 some
 of
 the
 concoctions
 they ’ve
 used
 for
 this
 months
 Opinion
 column.
 
 Read
 and
 enjoy,
share
your
opinions
on
the
website
 and
 use
 common
 sense
 when
 deciding
 what
 you
 might
 try.
 
 For
 example,
 I
 read
 several
 posts
 on
 an
 online
 forum
 that
 mentioned
 using
 Listerine
 as
 a
 brace
 instead
 of
 spending
 money
 on
 liniment
 (somewhat
 appealing
 I
 think).
 
 It’s
 also
 used
 to
 kill
 fungus
 (scratches,
 rain
 rot)
 which
 also
 seems
 logical.
 
 The
 part
 that
 disturbs
 me
 involves
 applying
 the
 Lister‐ ine
to
freshly
scraped
open
sores.

OUCH!!

 Another
 poster
 was
 surprised
 to
 learn
 that
 there
 were
 applications
 for
 alcohol
 besides
 “applying
 to
 open
 wounds”….HELLO??!
 
 If
 you
 aren’t
 smart
 enough
 to
 9igure
 out
 the
 problem
 with
 that
 statement
 then
 please
 stay
 away
 from
 anyone
 or
 any
 living
 thing
 that
 might
 require
 medical
 attention‐
 better
 yet ,
 next
 time
 you
 cut
 yourself
 shaving,
 pour
on
a
bit
of
alcohol
and
report
back
to
 us.
 I’ll
 start
 with
 a
 few
 applications
 using
 a
 product
 that
 I
 regularly
 use
 at
 home:

 organic
 apple
 cider
 vinegar
 (ACV).
 
 If
 you
 Google
 this
 product
 you’ll
 9ind
 multiple
 uses
and
cures
for
countless
health
issues
 in
 humans
 and
 animals.
 
 For
 thrush
 and
 other
 hoof
 fungal
 infections,
 soak
 or


spray
the
acv
(full
strength
or
¼
c
to
1
gal


water
 as
 a
 soak)
 onto
 frog
 and
 sole.
 
 The
 theory
 is
 that
 it
 makes
 area
 more
 acidic
 thus
 preventing
 growth
 of
 fungus
 and
 that
it
speeds
the
healing
process
of
other
 hoof
infections
or
bruises.

 I’ve
 seen
 lots
 of
 9ly
 spray
 recipes
 and
 I’m
 listing
 two
 that
 I
 found
 recently.
 
 The
 9irst
 comes
 from
 the
 staff
 at
 Dressage
 Today
 and
 the
 second
 was
 recommended
 by
 a
 veterinarian.
 
 I’ve
 not
 tried
 either
 but
 plan
 to
 start
 with
 the
 latter
 as
 it’s
 comprised
 of
 far
 fewer
 ingredients.
 
 You


can
most
likely
9ind
these
ingredients
at
a


natural
food
store.

 look
 in
 the
 'Grilling"
 section
 to
 9ind
 a
 “grill
 cleaning
 block”
 (it
 is
 the
 size
 of
 a
 red
 brick).
 
 It
 only
 cost
 a
 few
 $$
 and
 you
 can
 cut
 it
 with
 a
 knife
 &
 make
 SEVERAL
 shedding
 blocks
 for
 next
 to
 nothing!
 Be
 sure
 to
 scrape
 the
 edges
 w/
 the
knife
to
round
them
off
that
way
there
 are
 no
 sharp
 edges.
 
 Use
 a
 sheepskin
 mitten
 (auto
 parts
 store
 or
 Wal‐Mart)
 to
 get
 the
 dust
 off
 and
 it’s
 great
 for
 applying
 sprays
of
any
kind.
Listerine

and
 treats
thrush
and
 Desenex
 powder
 works
 perfectly
 (especially
 for
 the
 draft
 breeds
 fetlock
 “feathers”)
 to
 prevent
 or
 treat
 scratches
 and
 rain
 rot .
 
 Vaseline
 gets
 the
 crud
 that
 goops
up
in
mares
udders
(it
softens
it
up
 so
 you
 can
 wipe
 it
 out)
 and
 don’t
 forget
 BABY
WIPES!!!
So
many
uses!!

Finally,
try
 extra
strength
vinegar
and
water
douches
 for
itchy
tails
and
manes.” ~

“I

Schaub
 purchased
 Sir
 Dragon
 at
 the
 sale
 as
 a
 three‐year‐old
 and
 sold
 him
 in
 this
 year's
 sale.
 Sir
 Dragon
 showed
 the
 next
 day
 at
 the
 Finals
 and
 was
 fourth
 overall
in
the
Small
Green
Pony
division.

"I
want
people
to
be
assured
that
I
am
bringing
top‐quality,
hand‐picked
ponies
to
the
sale
for
others
to
purchase
and
go
on
with,"
Schaub
pointed
out .
"I
can
 only
 show
 so
 many
 ponies
 and
 give
 them
 their
 best
 shot .
 This
 year,
 I
 was
 faced
 with
 eight
 Small
 Green
 ponies
 to
 show
 or
 sell.
 I
 sold
 six
 in
 the
 sale
 and
 kept


two.
These
are
ponies
that
I
9ind
through
the
years.
I
like
their
quality,
and
I
break
them
and
get
them
ready
for
others
to
compete
with
and
win.
I
think
the


proof
is
in
the
pudding."

Regarding
 this
 year's
 sale,
 Schaub
 mentioned,
 "The
 ponies
 all
 went
 to
 great
 new
 owners
 where
 I
 thought
 they
 had
 a
 chance
 to
 be
 successful.
 While
 prices


were
down
a
bit ,
I
felt
that
the
long
term
advantage
of
selling
them
into
good
places
will
bene9it
me
for
years
to
come."


Over
the
Hill
Farm
will
compete
next
at
the
Bluegrass
Festival
Horse
Show
in
Kentucky
on
August
12‐16.

With
 fall
 right
 around
 the
 corner,
 for
 the
 Sunshine
region
of
the
United
States
Pony
 Club,
 that
 means
 a
 new
 rally
 season
 is
 ready
 to
 begin!
 Unlike
 the
 regions
 to
 the
 north,
 who
 are
 unable
 to
 hold
 rallies
 during
 the
 winter
 and
 must
 cram
 several
 rallies
 into
 just
 a
 few
 short
 months,
 we
 are
very
fortunate
to
be
able
to
spread
out
 our
 rallies
 over
 most
 of
 the
 year,
 with
 the
 USPC
Championships
being
held
in
July.

The
 next
 rally
 up
 is
 the
 very
 popular
 Dressage
 rally,
 held
 at
 Clarcona's
 Horse‐ man's
Park
in
September.

Horseketeers
Pony
Club
is
a
local
chapter
 of
the
USPC
and
serves
Orange
and
Semi‐ nole
 counties.
 Their
 members
 are
 looking
 forward
 to
 participating
 in
 all
 of
 the
pony
club
disciplines
this
year:
Event‐

i n g , 
 S h o w 
 J u m p i n g , 
 D r e s s a g e , 
 G a m e s ,

Polocrosse,
 Quiz
 and
 Tetrathalon.
 Mem‐ bers
 compete
 as
 teams,
 and
 are
 judged
 not
 only
 on
 their
 riding
 abilities,
 but
 also


their
horsemanagement
skills.

The
 club
 has
 been
 holding
 weekly
 mounted
 meetings
 at
 District
 Commis‐ sioner's
 Lori
 Tankel's
 Calypso
 Farm.
 Members
 receive
 either
 free
 instruction
 from
 our
 upper
 level
 members,
 or
 are
 able
to
enjoy
discounted
instruction
from
 such
 local
 trainers
 as
 Peter
 Stoepker,
 Jenny
 Jarnstrom,
 John
 Brown
 and
 Maron
 Foster.
They
are
also
able
to
participate
in
 clinics
 offered
 throughout
 the
 region,
 with
 such
 top
 instructors
 as
 Kyle
 Carter,
 and
Sarah
and
Eric
Dierks.

In
 addition
 to
 participating
 at
 rallies,
 our
 members
 are
 getting
 ready
 for
 their
 ratings,
 which
 test
 their
 horsemanship
 knowledge
 and
 their
 riding
 skills.
 Currently
 we
 have
 members
 who
 are
 unrated
 and
 are
 ready
 to
 earn
 their
 D1
 and
 D2
 ratings,
 to
 several
 members
 who
 are
 ready
 for
 their
 C3
 ratings.
 There
 are
 11
 levels
 of
 the
 Standards
 of
 Pro9iciency.

 My

 have
 attended
 3

 and
 2
 Festivals
 in
 the
 past
 9
 years.
 When
 my
 daughters
 and
 I
 last
 attended
 Festival
 in
 2004,
 we
 stayed
 at
 the
 Kentucky
 Horse

 campgrounds
 for
 nearly
 2
 weeks,
 experiencing
 Champs,
 festival
 and
 all
 the
 glorious
 offerings
 of
 the

 It
 was
 an
 unforgettable
 experience!

reward

for
tip
leadin g
to
arrest
in 
horse
killin gs

Horse
killings/mutilations
are
on
the
rise
in
Miami‐Dade
(and
Broward)
counties.
This
 is
 an
 on‐going
 problem
 that
 has
 spiked
 in
 recent
 months.
 Authorities
 are
 investigating
 over
 a
 dozen
 horse
 killings
 that
 have
 been
 reported
 since
 June
 2009
 in
 which
 the
 animals
 appear
 to
 have
 been
 butchered
 for
 their
 meat .
 
 It
 is
 believed
 that
 the
 horse
 meat
 is
 being
 sold
 on
 the
 black
 market
 for
 $20/lb.
 and
 higher.
 
 Buying
 or
 selling
 horse
 meat
 is
 illegal
 in
 South
 Florida.
 
 The
 illegally
 butchered
 animals
 were
 given
 steroids,
 tranquilizers,
and
antibiotics
on
a
regular
basis
so
their
meat
is
toxic
to
people.

Health
Tips

Think
you’re
cooling
that
horse
by
spraying
or
sponging
with
water?
 In
humid
air
(FL
summers),
hosing
or
sponging
with
cold
water
won’t
have
the
cooling
 effect
 you’d
 think
 because
 the
 water
 stays
 on
 the
 skin
 (rather
 than
 evaporating)
 and
 actually
 heats
 up
 while
 forming
 an
 insulating
 layer
 that
 will
 slow
 the
 cooling
 process.

 To
 make
 hosing
 or
 sponging
 a
 more
 effective
 cooling
 aid,
 scrape
 the
 excess
 water
 immediately
 and
 if
 necessary,
 repeat
 the
 process
 until
 the
 water
 no
 longer
 feels
 like
 it
 heats
up
on
the
body.

*A
good
place
to
test:
the
belly.

While
rinsing,
use
your
free
hand
 as
 a
 sweat
 scraper
 to
 determine
 whether
 the
 water’s
 still
 being
 heated
 by
 the
 horse’s
 body
 temperature.
 
 Adding
 a
 small
 amount
 of
 alcohol
 to
 bath
 water
 or
 mixed
 with
 water
in
a
spray
bottle
can
help
to
cool
and
make
water
evaporate
more
quickly.



Is
it
necessar y
to
feed
electrolyte
supplements?
 Depends
 who
 you
 ask
 but
 here’s
 a
 thought:
 
 The
 average
 horse
 probably
 gets
 an
 adequate
 supply
 of
 balanced
 vitamins
 and
 minerals
 (electrolytes
 included)
 through
 good
forage
and
a
“commercially
formulated”
feed
but
if
you’re
lucky
enough
to
have
an
 “easy
 keeper”
 that
 requires
 5‐6
 lbs/day
 and
 the
 recommended
 amount
 is
 10,
 your
 horse
 could
 be
 coming
 up
 short
 in
 the
 daily
 requirement
 of
 vitamins
 and
 minerals.

 Another
 point
 to
 consider
 is
 that
 we
 live
 in
 a
 hot
 &
 humid
 climate
 that
 can
 produce
 a
 hot ,
 sweaty
 horse
 even
 before
 you
 can
 9inish
 tacking
 up
 for
 exercise.
 
 Horses
 lose
 electrolytes
 when
 they
 sweat
 and
 water
 alone
 doesn’t
 compensate
 or
 replenish
 lost
 electrolytes,
 so
 you
 might
 consider
 an
 electrolyte
 supplement
 when
 the
 situation
 calls
 for
 it .
 
 You
 might
 even
 consider
 feeding
 a
 daily
 supplement
 during
 the
 hottest
 months
 of
 the
 year,
 especially
 for
 horses
 in
 training
 (40‐90
 minutes
 that
 produces
 sweating
 along
neck,
chest
and/or
sides).

Remember,
electrolytes
do
help
create
thirst
but
that’s
 not
the
sole
purpose.

It’s
important
to
keep
the
electrolyte
balance
intact ,
and
that
can
 mean
 supplementing.
 
 There
 are
 multiple
 inexpensive
 options
 available
 including
 simple
free‐choice
mineralized
salt
blocks
to
feed/water
additives
and
oral
pastes.






Lyme
Disease­
Prevention
is
Key! Early
 fall
 (September)
 is
 prime
 time
 for
 ticks
 as
 they
 enter
 the
 “nymph”
 stage,
 so
 regularly
inspect
your
horse,
especially
if
you
hack
out
under
trees
and
through
longer
 grasses
 (they
 could
 be
 anywhere
 but
 most
 typically
 in
 mane,
 forlock
 or
 on
 lower
 legs‐
 use
 9ingers
 to
 feel
 around
 for
 suspicious
 bumps),
 use
 a
 permethrin
 based
 spray
 and
 keep
pasture
areas
mowed.

 jumping.
 Karen
 called

 This

 quite

 compliment
 coming
 from
 such
 a

 as
 Karen.

 is
 astounded
about

so
proud.

Karen
approving

Extravagance’s

successfully

 It
 was
 refreshing
 to
 know
 that
 Karen
 does
 not

 over


large
cross
countr y
fences.
Nothing
was
larger
than
3’3”
(we
compete
at
4’3”).
•
Karen
indicated
that
Pau
4*
was
well
within
our
grasp,


but
risky.
She
cautions
that
it
possess
risks
(of
course
any
4*
involves
risks)!
Should
we
not
compete
we
will
have
a
tough
time
regaining


the
 selector’s
 attention.
 If
 we
 prove
 that
 a
 4*
 is
 within
 our
 capabilities,
 we
 will
 be
 a
 step
 ahead
 at
 the
 onset
 of
 2010.
 Karen
 believes
 we


could
be
competitive
at
Rolex

However,
waiting

warned
me
that

have
a
strong
group
of
many

candidates.
I
do

 favor.
 For

we
depart
today

we
do

to

Today
we
did
a

Extravagance
was
good
but
he
is
so
used
to
taking
 care
 of
 things
 for
 himself
 (not
 a
 bad
 trait),
 and
 Karen
 insisted
 that
 he
 be
 more
 attentive
 to
 me.
 We
 jumped
 nothing
 larger
 than
 prelimi­ nar y,
 but
 some
 technical
 questions.
 •
 Show
 jumping
 with
 Extravagance
 was
 somewhat
 interesting.
 Karen,
 knowing
 his
 histor y
 and
 having
witnessed
some
impressive
rounds
last
season,
called
me
the
jumping
“magician”.
Of
course
we
worked
on
helping
Extravagance
 understand
that
he
needs
to
stay
round
to
ever y
fence­­cetrainly
he
performed
better
when
round­it
needs
to
become
his
normal
way
of
 going.
 •
 We
 are
 staying
 over
 night
 at
 a

 hotel
 in

 so
 the

 have
 an
 easier

 then
 an
