Letter from the Editor

According to a recent survey (found at www.Equimax.com) the majority of respondents don't believe the horse industry has begun to improve- and most don't think it will rebound as quickly as other industries. What do you think? Read more in this month's 'Bit s & Tips'.

Now here's something to consider: Studies have proven that once a recession comes to an end, consumer spending is greater than before it began. Doesn't it make sense then to keep your business name in front of faces and fresh in memory?

If your marketing strategy includes hiding until the slow economy picks up speed, take your head out of the sand! This is not the time to gut your ad budget and hope for the best. Choose the best strategy for your business- this might include web marketing, direct mail, advertising in your local circular or a magazine (like this one). Figure out WHO you are targeting and put your resources into the best tool for reaching your future clients.

CF Equestrian has an updated rate & info sheet. In spite of the economy, TWO ad sizes were DECREASED! Our sixth pg is now $80 and an eighth is only $65. Since we started we've aimed to offer a good quality affordable source of advertising. We're hearing great things from our clients- Allow us to help you succeed and grow YOUR business.

Santa Rosa Stables offers premiere training and care in a secure, beautiful location…

By CFE staff writer

Lifelong equestrians Oscar and Zoë Hernandez of Santa Rosa Stables always knew they wanted to run their own stable. The couple have spent their careers preparing themselves by working in many different aspects of the horse business. Zoë, age 28 and a native of New Orleans, began coaching at age 16. “I was the only kid in the barn who was horse showing. When a couple of the other girls expressed an interest I began coaching them and pretty soon I had an entourage of students at the local hunter shows.” During college she managed a boarding

and training facility. It was also at this time that she began working with racehorses which led her to Ocala.

“I graduated from Sarah Wilson College

in 2003 with a double major in Equine Business management and English Literature. As soon as I received my diploma I packed my things and headed

for Florida.” Once in Ocala Zoë discovered

a treasure trove of horses and

opportunities. “Each job I got opened the

doors to two or three more. I would start

a young horse privately for someone and

soon three neighbors would be asking the original customer if they could have my number.” While working as a free lance rider for show horses and racehorses, Zoë also worked as a demonstration rider for a hunter/jumper sales barn. “It was a unique opportunity to see that part of the industry from the inside.” Zoë continues to show hunters and jumpers as opportunity allows. Currently Zoë is the farm manager for a private breeding farm while she and Oscar build their business. Oscar, 34, began his riding career at the age of 3 at the side of his trainer father in his homeland of Costa Rica. After a successful junior career marked by several notable accomplishments, including placing third in the Samsung International Junior Cup in show jumping, Oscar took a brief break from horses. But it wasn’t long

before his life’s work came calling again. In 2000 Oscar was offered the opportunity to be the head trainer for an Andalusian farm in Ontario, Canada. While there Oscar was in charge of starting the young horses, showing the competition horses, and teaching students. “It was a good job. I love dressage but my true calling has always been show jumping.” In 2003 Oscar left the Andalusian farm and went to work for a Canadian show jumping stable. During his five year stint with the operation Oscar wore many hats. He was road manager, head groom, and was also in charge of starting the young stock. Eventually the show bug caught up with Oscar. “There is a lot of security working for someone else. But I realized that some goals of mine could only be accomplished by working for myself.” The couple met in 2005 and were married in 2007. From the beginning there was talk of having their own stable. “I have always been the type to work for myself so the idea of running our own barn was always the logical next step,” explains Zoë. In 2008 Oscar left the Canadian stable and went to work for an American professional. After one year there opportunity came knocking again. “We were offered the opportunity to work with a string of young show horse prospects,” says Oscar. “The timing was right and Santa Rosa Stables was born.” Oscar and Zoë have a very clear mission in their professional pursuits. “Whether it is a horse or a student we want to offer them an intimate atmosphere that is conducive for learning and one that is also fun,” Oscar explains. “We want our clients to look forward to their lessons because they know they are getting the full force of our attention every time. Along with to going to horseshows we organize fun rides and barbeques so that all of the clients interact and enjoy each other.” Versatility is a cornerstone of their business model. “We welcome everyone to our barn. Some of our students are weekend warriors, others are serious competitors. But what they all have in common is the desire to enjoy their horses. We want to foster the fun while helping them grow as horsemen.” Santa Rosa Stables offers a array of services: full training board, sales consignment, young horse starting, lessons and lesson horses. “We are a full service facility. One of the advantages to being smaller is that we can cater to each individual customer’s specific needs. We like the boutique

atmosphere our unique situation allows,” says Zoë. In addition to training and riding, Oscar and Zoë began K-59 Jump Co., -- a jump manufacturing business-- in 2009. “It’s been great for Oscar,” says Zoë. “It is so much fun to see his creativity run wild.” It is Oscar’s goal to offer a quality product at an affordable price. This business model has proved very successful in the company’s first year. “The business has grown beyond my wildest imagination,” Oscar laughs. K59 Jump Co. offers a full line of jumps, boxes, Grand Prix quality round rails, and many other products. “You can get as crazy as you want. If you can imagine it, we can build it!” The couple are equal partners in all aspects of their business. From training the horses and teaching lessons to building jumps the Hernandez’s share common goals for each other, their clients, and their businesses. “We want everyone to achieve success on their own level. Each person measures success differently but our goal is to meet our clients where they are currently and help them get where they want to go next. It is the same approach we take to working with each other,” says Oscar “One of the advantages of working so closely together is that we have made ourselves interchangeable,” Zoë explains. “We are both able to teach, to train, to run the jump business. Our clients know this and I think they enjoy having two professionals available to them.” “It’s always good to have two perspectives on an idea,” Oscar adds. “I think it benefits both the horses and the students. Sometimes taking a slightly different approach to a situation helps to clarify or simplify a concept for a student or a horse. We are looking forward to growing Santa Rosa Stables. I think we have a lot to contribute both personally and professionally to Ocala and the surrounding area.”

Quest for WEG

Quest for WEG

We’re finally getting closer to determining WHO will make the cut for showjumping at WEG- the Long List is so far filled with west coast riders. (come on FL- anyone? Anyone?)

The selection trials are a series of events leading up to the selection of riders for the United States Team that will compete at the 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games in Lexington, KY, this fall. Trials have begun here in FL- held at night under the bright lights of the International Arena at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center in Wellington and the annual $200K Gene Mische Invitational has qualified as a selection trial that will take place on Sat. April 10th in Tampa at the end of the Tampa Equestrian Festival circuit.

Endurance

Cheryl Van Deusen New Smyrna Beach

We made some progress in the past two months, but for every forward hoofprint, there are some sideways ones as well. Gallop of the Greenway was very challenging in that only 9 of 22 horses completed the 100 mile endurance ride, and I was not one of the 9. I retired my horse after 85 miles because I was not going to be able to get a Certificate of Capability in the required time, choosing to save him for another day. He was sound, just tired of riding alone in the dark, and very hungry. With FEI rules, no crewing is allowed except at checkpoints, thus my crew would have been unable to

provide any support on the last 15 miles.

I considered walking for 15 miles for an

open AERC completion but my goal is WEG. So we are preparing for FITS and there is a another tentative ride scheduled for the east coast of Florida the second week of April. So we still have 3 shots for horse qualification as the horse and rider have to be a team and I have two horses that have done COC on the

100 mile distance, but I still have 3 others

I would like to qualify. The trials are

Park, a world-class facility and the centerpiece of Florida’s equestrian lifestyle community. Located in Ocala, The Park offers international caliber competition courses, an exciting schedule of world-class events that draws top competitors and spectators from every horse sport discipline, and offers local and global educational opportunities for the horse enthusiast.

Hilda Hick Donahue Apopka

“X” started the season feeling and looking like a real 4* horse. We are fortunate to have a great team of care takers including Dr. Scott Langton, Steve Teican, the US Team farrier along with John May and Charlie Bailey, Sally Harvey and Ashmore’s Jackie Phillips. As a result “X” has become fitter and stronger than ever resulting in having to make some bridle & bitting adjustments! His dressage scores have improved, even breaking into the 20’s. We are off to The Fork CIC 3* early April- this will test our readiness for Rolex. Should Rolex not be in our best interest, its back to Jersey CCI 3*. Fortunately we are already qualified for WEG but need to prove some decent results at the 3* level. ONWARD!

May issue:

Find out how our FL contenders are progressing in their Quest for WEG

slated for June so that’s when I need to peak the horses, and this the primary goal.

Combined Driving

Chester Weber

Ocala

(JRPR March 3rd) Chester Weber kicked off his 2010 show

season exactly the way a national champion likes to – by winning the horse team class at the Sunshine State FEI Combined Driving Event at the Florida Horse Park. Weber, the seven-time US National Four-In-Hand Champion, competed against an international field and ended the three-phase competition

24 points ahead of second place finisher

James Fairclough. Weber added a new horse to his team in the cross-country marathon and cones phase, a 15-year-old French trotter named Horus du Bois. Weber purchased Horus last summer from Dutch driver Hans Heus, in hopes of adding high-end speed and drivability to the marathon and cones While Weber and his team have their sights set on the 2010 World Equestrian

Games in Kentucky in the fall, Weber said he has a more pressing goal prior to WEG. “First things first and that is the national championships at the end of March,” Weber said. “I am working toward win number eight. After that we will focus on a WEG strategy and decide if we will do a European tour this summer.” As Weber looks forward to defending his national championship title March 24-

28 at Live Oak International, he said his

hard work is paying off and he feels confident. “However, I realize horses keep

you humble,” Weber said. The Sunshine State competition was a WEG qualifier, and marked the second WEG qualifying win for Weber. “This was also the second leg of the Florida Triple Crown,” Weber said. “The first leg was at the CAI Dade City, which I didn’t compete

in.

How optimistic are you about the future of the horse industry?

140 people and climbing have participated in our two-minute five-question survey about the horse industry economy. The results are revealing. So far most participants think the national economy has bottomed out but the recovery has been minimal, that the horse industry has been hit about as hard as any other industry and that the horse industry economy has yet to begin recovery.

Zenyatta & Rachel could soon make racing history

Rachel Alexandra (Horse of the Year) and Zenyatta (record number of wins & first female to win the Breeder’s Cup) to meetup for the $5M Apple Blossom Invitational Stakes at Oaklawn Park April

9th.

The powers to be have aggressively pursued a matchup for sometime- the first attempt fell apart and the purse has since grown from $500K to $5M. Oaklawn Park owner Charles Cella calls it “A race for the ages”. Zenyatta was to be retired after the Classic and bred this spring, but those plans are being put on hold. Both are to race mid March, Zenyatta at Santa Margarita and Rachel at the Ladies Stake in New Orleans, to help prepare for the April match up.

A portion of the

Central FL Equestrian’s Business tip of the month:

Gain an edge using a few simple rules

Determine the answers to the following questions:

WHO & WHERE are your customers? HOW might you best reach them? WHAT is the best MESSAGE to send? Use the 80/20 rule. 80% of your business comes from 20% of your customers. So again- Know Who, Where & How. The 80/20 rule also applies here:

If you find that 20% of your customer base is costing you 80% of your time, energy, resources, stress and money, FIRE them. The extra time and additional resources are better spent developing and maintaining your good 20% base of clients.

March 3, 2010 Important Changes to the USEF Therapeutic Drug Rule Regarding NSAIDs

From the USEF Equine Drugs and Medication Program

At this year’s USEF Annual Meeting held January 13-17, 2010, an important rule change was approved affecting the use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) in competition horses. Over the years, ongoing veterinary research has revealed that not only is there little or no benefit to administering more than one NSAID to a horse for most medical concerns, it can actually cause potentially harmful, even severe side effects. Motivated by its commitment to the welfare of the horse, the USEF Board of Directors voted to amend its Therapeutic Drug Rule and restrict use to a single NSAID beginning December 1, 2011. Both the American Association of Equine Practioners (AAEP) and the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) support the rule change, and USEF joins other organizations including the American Quarter Horse Association (AQHA) and Equine Canada in making this important rule change. While the presence of two of the seven approved and quantitatively restricted NSAIDs in a horse will still be allowed prior

Beginning April, 1, 2010, anyone using two NSAIDs in a horse within five days prior to participating at a USEF-licensed competition will be required to complete and file a NSAID Disclosure Form with the USEF Steward/Technical Delegate or their Designated Competition Office Representative.

to December 2011 (with the exception of the forbidden combination of phenylbutazone “Bute,” and flunixin meglumine [Banamine®]), it is important to note that new restrictions are in place concerning their use. This form will allow the USEF Equine Drugs and Medications Program to collect valuable data regarding the use of NSAIDs in competition horses. USEF has developed an education plan to guide management, owners, trainers, and exhibitors through the implementation of

this rule change. The Federation has published an informational pamphlet and created the NSAID Disclosure Form. Both the pamphlet and the forms will be shipped to all Competition Managers for distribution from their competition offices. Additionally, both the form and the pamphlet are immediately available online at:

http://www.usef.org/documents/drugsM eds/NSAIDDisclosureForm.pdf and http://issuu.com/equestrian/docs/nsaida ndyourhorseweb?mode=embed&layout= http://www.usef.org/issuu/nsaids/layout. xml&showFlipBtn=true It is the responsibility of the competitor and their veterinarian to make certain the use of two NSAIDs within five days of competing is reported on the NSAID Disclosure Form and is properly filed with the USEF Steward/Technical Delegate or their Designated Competition Office Representative. It is important to note that a standard USEF Medication Report Form may not be used in this particular instance. Once filed, it is the responsibility of USEF Steward/Technical Delegate to collect the NSAID Disclosure Form(s) and submit them to the Federation Office in Lexington, Kentucky. For additional information and veterinary literature regarding NSAID use and the change to the USEF rule concerning their use, visit:

2010 Rule Change Alert:

USEF rule restricts use of hind boots on Young Jumpers

JPR116.2. Hind Boots: Non-weighted (maximum of 350 g) hind ankle boots are permitted in classes restricted to Five, Six, Seven, or Eight year-olds. Support wraps are permitted. If boots are made of rigid leather or plastic, they may only be a maximum of 6 inches/15 cm in height.

Breeze through this update from Rush Management. You may learn something new. USEF rules are always changing and it's up to YOU as an exhibitor to know the current rules pertaining to classes you enter. More articles are available at www.rushshows.com.

Course Diagrams - More than a pretty picture Pam Rush- RMI HUNTER - Course diagrams must be posted at least one-half hour before a scheduled class time.

HU120.

Each course must have at least eight obstacles (ten for Hunter Classics). HU119.4/HU146.20. Every course must have at least four different types of obstacles (six for Hunter Classics). HU122.3/ HU146.20. Different would be green box and birch boxes, a fence with a white gate, and a fence with a red gate. In most cases, jumps will have wings of at least 24" and at least 12" higher than the obstacle. HU122.3 In an "A" section, there must be a minimum of three different courses in the section; and in a "B" section, there must be a minimum of two different courses. HU119.5 The diagram must show the obstacles which must be taken and must show the order in which they are to be taken, but otherwise an exhibitor is not bound to follow a compulsory track. HU120.1. Distances between fences must be included on the diagram if the point from base to base is less than 90'. HU120.1 Note the diagram indicates the distance, not the number of strides. The scoring of adding a stride from the "standard" or eliminating a stride is at the discretion of the judge and may be scored as a

minor or major fault. HU135.1

If the area of courtesy circle is to be restricted,

the line must be indicated on the diagram and a corresponding barrier must be physically located on the course. HU120.2

Passing the mandatory line is grounds for elimination as it becomes part of the judging specifications. EQUITATION - Course diagrams are not specifically addressed by the USEF Equitation

rules, but implied. There are certain things that must be reflected on the course diagram.

A minimum of six obstacles is required. EQ111

Combinations are to be numbered with a single number and the designation of A and B or A, B and C. EQ111.7 This requirement is often

overlooked when equitation classes are held in the same ring as hunter classes.

In Open Equitation Classes for riders 12 years of

age and older, the course must include at least

one change of lead, a combination including an oxer and one third of the obstacles must be oxers. In addition, the course must include three of the following: bending line, narrow jump, roll-back turn, end fence, long approach

to a single. EQ111.10

Many medals and special equitation classes have other course requirements which should be clearly marked on the course diagram. For

example, the USEF Pony Medal requires two tests (1-9) be included in the first round of the class.

EQ112.10

JUMPER - Course diagrams for jumper classes must be posted at least one-half hour before the scheduled time of the class. JP130.1 The diagram must include the Speed, Time Allowed, length of course, start and finish, and jump-off course (if applicable). The diagram must show the obstacles which must be jumped and the order indicated by number. The course designer may use a solid line between obstacles to indicate a mandatory track. JP 130.2 Deviation from the designated track will result in penalty. "Walking the course" is at management's discretion and it may or may not be available for any particular ourse. JP130.3 It is most important that the rider review and learn the course rather than rely on others to relay the track. A picture is worth a thousand words- make time to look at the posted course - it is a piece of art.
