WinterCircuit~Who’sWho?

May 2010

Letter from the Editor

Another loooonnnngggg winter has come and gone- “Good Ridance!” I say. Whatever the season, FL horse people show. Our world famous FL winter circuits have reached the end of another year. WEF (Winter Equestrian Festival), HITS (Horse Shows in the Sun) & TEF (Tampa Equestrian Festival) commence at various points in early winter but WEF takes the record for twelve consecutive show weeks.

For those who have never visited the International Equestrian Center in Wellington during the FTI Winter Equestrian Festival, make it a point to go next year. Not only is the entire place crawling with past, present and future Olympic and top riders, the facilities are beautiful and there’s plenty going on- several hunter rings and grand prix dressage and show jumping all day every day during the show weeks. Lots of boutique and specialty retail stores are scattered around the grounds if shopping interests you.

HITS is often cold or wet (or both) but the laid back feel makes up for the weather. Plan to walk all day or plant yourself at a ring because the area between stabling, facilities and rings is great- and divided by an old race track.

TEF is held at the Bob Thomas Fairgrounds and remains a personal favorite. Unfortunately their show weeks start just before WEF ends and many exhibitors choose to take a break after HITS & WEF, so at least the early part of TEF is usually light on entrees. The Parade of Champions held on the final day of showing is quite a highlight as circuit champions parade the field at Raymond James stadium just before the annual American Invitational grand prix begins.

Our grassroots, local shows are vital to the growth of our sport- this is where it all begin. Show management isn’t easy- please support your local associations. Happy & safe riding.

Archer Farms: Two Paths Meet with One Passion

Archer Farms is more than a place that houses happy horses, it is a dream come true, a place of passion. People walking in for the first time will immediately take note of the beautiful 30 acres, numerous over-sized, matted stalls, automatic fly repellent system, automatic waterers and many other amenities offered. Seeing the heart of the place requires a deeper look into the love and hard work that has been put into it and the miracle that happens when people come together to share an identical passion.

when people come together to share an identical passion. Sharleen Exler is the founder of Archer

Sharleen Exler is the founder of Archer Farms; she started in 2003 with a modest training and boarding facility. She worked hard continuously, doing everything on her own, not letting anything get in her way of working for what she loves: horses. “It’s more than a full time job, it’s not a nine to five job,

By Heather Fox

more like a 16 hour a day job.” she says. Sharleen started in Southern Florida, riding at three-years old. ”It’s in your blood, it’s something you are born with.” she said, describing the very distinct affinity for horses certain people share. During her life she immersed herself with horses, learning every discipline. She showed Arabians in Scottsdale, Arizona for ten years, some of which were awarded USEF Horse of the Year Awards under her tutelage. She also rode and trained 3 Day Eventers for the thrill of competing in so many disciplines with one animal. Not only did she ride, event, and train but she was also a vet-tech for sixteen years to add to her knowledge base with horses. While Sharleen has never struggled with loving her work she described past relationships as an “uphill battle”; no man shared or understood her passion, what it took to follow the love of horses. This ultimately led to choosing the horses, until the day she met someone that understood her love in life, at a horse show in Ocala. Mauricio Garcia-Ballesteros is a man who has lived, breathed and dreamed horses ever since he was riding at four years old. He grew up in Columbia working for the Gamboa’s, a big family name in the equine community. He was a

Children’s Champion and rode in the Junior Division before he had to stop riding for five years due to economic problems. His father told him he could no longer ride unless it was on his own dime, Mauricio says

no longer ride unless it was on his own dime, Mauricio says that is when it

that is when it all changed “It started as a hobby, another sport in my life, not a passion.” When he was forced to take some time out of the saddle he realized it was no hobby, he was destined for horses. He rode again at 18 years old, working for the Gamboa Equestrian Center in Columbia. After working for them for 2 years he was offered

a job at another Equestrian Center, this time in The Dominican Republic. In the 4 years that he worked there he became a two time Adult Champion in the 1.30-

1.40 m division. He later was offered

a teaching and managing position

in Puerto Rico which he took, got married and lived for eight years. He applied and was granted

Featured Barn: Archer Farms, Archer FL

Puerto-Rican citizenship and qualified for the Puerto Rican Team and showed in the Central American and Caribbean Games in 2006, one of three steps of the Olympic Cycle. Among other accomplishments Mauricio qualified for the FEI World Jumping Challenge Finals in Germany. Additionally he showed throughout Europe, Guatemala, El Salvador and Mexico in CSI*** representing Puerto Rico. Mauricio moved to the United States where he started showing in Wellington in 2007. He divorced and moved to Orlando for about five months before he finally moved to Ocala in 2009 and met Sharleen Exler at a horse show. He now works with his fiancé in the expansion of Archer Farms, and starting his life with a woman whose passion for horses matches his own. Despite all his championships and accomplishments, Mauricio will remind everyone who asks him why he works so hard at what he does and why he strives to be successful in the equine field. “When I’m on a horse I get transported to another level…riding for me is not only work, passion develops from knowing the animal, finding their weaknesses and strengths… it relaxes me.”

finding their weaknesses and strengths… it relaxes me.” Archer Farms hasn’t yet finished growing, clients know

Archer Farms hasn’t yet finished growing, clients know this. They also know it is a place of trust when riders are appropriately paired with safe horses they can handle. Neither Sharleen nor Mauricio would ever place an unskilled rider on a horse that didn‘t match their individual skill level, they make sure to take the time and know their horses as well as their clients.

It is a place of safety for not only

riders but the horses too. Everything from where the horses stay to what they eat is always under watchful eyes, making sure all horses are getting correct diets, medical care, and training. Finally Archer Farms is

a place of inclusivity, it tries to cater

Archer Farms is a place of inclusivity, it tries to cater to everyone, as Sharleen says

to everyone, as Sharleen says “We all share the same passion, we all share the love of horses.” This season Archer Farms showed no less than 9 horses a day for clients as well as their own horses at HITS, keeping both of them very busy. However they keep their lesson program alive as well with safe competent lesson horses always available, so the opportunity for beginners to learn and grow as better riders is still there and that each rider can maximize his or her own potential at a different pace under careful instruction. “Where there is a passion and there is ability, there is always a way”. Even through hard economic times, where riding may have to take a backseat to clients’ bills or mortgages, Sharleen and Mauricio have been there to ride the rough wave and help their clients. Mauricio is a well respected FEI Course Designer and has either designed or assisted world renowned Course Designers at such shows as: Spruce Meadows, The Washington International, Bromont, USEF World Equestrian Games Trials, Pan American Games, Ocala Show Jumping Classic and numerous Central and South American Horse Show venues. They also work with a manufacturer of custom half chaps and boots and can offer them at a fraction of what they normally would cost. As Sharleen says “It’s

about being a jack of all trades, you have to wear many hats in this business…you have to think ahead of where the business is going.” It has also been difficult for Mauricio as far as culture shock in riding itself. He started much differentlyno graduating from ponies to midsized horses to large horses; they don’t have ponies in Central and South America to learn on, everyone just gets right on the big horses no matter what the skill level of the rider. Through any obstacle the two have come out on top and better for it as Sharleen says “Do whatever it takes ethically to make the business survive… there is nothing I’d rather be doing.” Archer Farms has grown just as its owners have, through trial and error it has become a place of love, passion, professionalism and ethics. Now hand in hand Sharleen Exler with fiancé Mauricio Garcia- Ballesteros look to the future- they plan to marry in September so that they may combine their strengths, their visions and their lives to make Archer Farms the absolute best horse facility possible. They welcome everyone interested to experience life at their facility, Archer Farms, where all may grow, learn and participate in the love and the sport of horses. The facility is located in Archer Fl, 20 min from HITS and 10 min from Canterbury Showplace. Archer Farms has customized goal oriented training programs for aspiring and serious competitors.

Pic 1- In our first photo, it is hard to see the rider's lower leg. We can tell from the picture, however, that this distance was hurried and a little long, no doubt because of the weather conditions. This rider shows us a proper rein length and a correct release.This combination is very well turned out, with what appears to be well fitted tack and appointments. The horse has a beautiful expression and is jumping in good form. The rider

is confident and looks on to the next

jump. We can tell this rider has a plan. It would be nice to see this pair in different weather conditions. I'd

like to see a little more of an open hip angle and a flatter lower back. Although the rider is not jumping ahead of the horse, in this picture it looks as though this might have been

a "snappy" quick (almost "ducking") crest release.

Pic. 2- Here is a horse that knows and likes it's job! Maybe even too well for an equitation critique. LOL This very

scopey classic jump has forced the rider to step her lower leg in front of herself a little too far. We can see, however, a very correct iron position, and a "base" that is weighted through the back of the leg and heel. This riders hip is correctly positioned over the middle of the horse and above her base (lower leg). I like her flat back and her focused eyes. I would like to see her balance herself on the sides of the horse's crest more. This pair is very well turned out for the jumper ring. Everything is neat and tidy.

Pic 3- Everything about this pair is correct! They compliment each other well and are b e a u tifully turned out. We can tell from the picture that the distance was well executed, Both horse and rider are looking to the horizon with great expression. Take note of the textbook crest release on the sides of the crest. This rider is supporting her upper body and hip angle from that release - -- through her flat back --- and into her beautiful lower leg. The iron does appear to be a little close to her toe. The outside branch of the iron could be further back (behind her "little piggy" toe) to the ball of her foot. Everything fits well on both horse and

rider. Great attention to detail!

Pic 4- Here we have another well turned out pair. This horse also jumps quite well and shows great expression. Judging from the height of the jump I will guess the horse to be a bit green. This rider has a beautiful soft feel and a great example of a correct crest release. It does appear, however, that in helping this horse perform his job, this rider has dropped a little to the left. Let's, please, take into consideration, this animal's textbook jump. He is showing us that he has a long future in his sport. Not many animals try this hard at this height and show so much talent and style. With all the scope and style this rider still maintains great horsewomanship and equitation. Her hip is over her base and from the angle of her calf I can tell she is well anchored into her heel.We have already mentioned the crest release --- that coupled with her steady strong base allows her to have a nice flat confident back and a focused eye looking on. I am very happy to see, again, attention to detail with this pair.

Quest for WEG

On September 25th, 2010, the world will be watching as 600 athletes and 700 horses representing more than 60 countries convene in the United States at Lexington’s Kentucky Horse Park for 16 days of competition.

Eight World Championships Representing the Pinnacle of Equestrian Sport

The Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games 2010will define a new chapter in the history of the World Equestrian Games as the first time the Games have been held outside of Europe and the first time that competition for all eight disciplines

recognized by the Fédération Equestre Internationale (FEI) will be held in one location. Like the Olympics, the World Equestrian Games are held every four years and are the world championships for eight equestrian disciplines. Previous host cities include Stockholm, The Hague, Rome, Jerez, and, most recently, Aachen.

Chester Weber

Ocala

Combined Driver Chester Weber continued his title as “record-breaking champion” during the Live Oak International competition, breaking his own record by winning the USEF National Four-In-Hand Championship for a record eight years in a row. Weber’s win took place at the prestigious Live Oak event in Ocala, Florida, during a weekend filled with thousands of fans, bad weather and an incident on course that required Weber to utilize his nerves of steel and vast driving experience. Following a winning weekend, Weber remains focused on the future. “This championship was one of our two major goals for the 2010 season and with this one behind us we can focus exclusively on WEG,” Weber said. “The Monday after the championship, however, we did begin training some of our new talent that we hope to call on to win title number nine

Every year, over 1000 young riders seek to qualify for the Maclay Equitation Finals held in November of each year. To reach the Finals, junior riders begin by becoming members of the ASPCA/NHSAA (National Horse Show Association of America) and enter the ASPCA Horsemanship Class at hundreds of USEF sanctioned horse shows. The Maclay class is unique in its format of qualifying for the Championship through eight regional competitions in September. The format of 50% jumping performance and 50% flat performance is grounded in Mr. Maclay's original objective of improving the overall rider. Complete class specifications are at USEF EQ112.12 and at www.nhs.org. But why is it called 'The Maclay?" The first Maclay equitation class was held in 1933 at the National Horse Show at Madison Square Garden, New York, New York. The class was established by Alfred B. Maclay, an ASPCA board member and an accomplished horseman. The class was conceived by

time the Maclay Equitation Championship remained in the North East. Both the Equitation Championship and the National Horse show seem to have found a new indoor home as part of the Syracuse Invitational Sporthorse Tournament. Alfred Barmore Maclay was born in 1871 to Robert Maclay and Georgiana Barmore. Barmore was the daughter of Alfred Barmore who was one of the principals of the Knickerbocker Ice Company. The Knickerbocker Ice Company

Maclay "to inspire young riders to develop the best horsemanship skills and instill in them respect and compassion for their equine partners." Maclay served as president of the American Horse Show Association (now the United States Equestrian Federation) from 1926-1936 and served on the Show Committee of the National Horse Show for thirty years, including as Chairman in 1916. The National Horse Show was established in 1883 (four years after the first Madison Square Garden opened) to showcase fine

harness horses and show jumping. The show was searching for a home at the turn of the 21st century spending several years at the Meadowlands in New Jersey, 2003 and 2004 at The Pier in NYC, and several years outdoors at Wellington, FL. Throughout this

was the largest ice producer in the country by 1881 housing over 1,400,000 tons of ice (out of two million tons used in New York City.) The ice operation took 500 wagons, 1000 horses and 2000 men; each man earned an average of $1.50 per day. Robert Maclay became president of Knickerbocker Ice upon the death of his father-in-law in 1875. Robert Maclay also engaged in real estate and banking and became president of the Knickerbocker Trust Company from 1894 to 1897. Through a series of mergers, its corporate soul is now part of the Bank of New York. Born into this illustrious NYC family, Alfred Maclay benefitted from an education at Charlier School, a private school in NYC. At age 16 he became a member of Squadron A, New York National Guard. Squadron A was a cavalry troop headquartered in NYC. He enlisted in the US infantry to fight the Spanish American War eventually obtaining the rank of 2nd Lieutenant. Alfred Maclay wanted to study art in Paris, but his parents insisted on business experience. Though always very artistic and creative, he agreed to the family's demands to become an experienced businessman working with the family businesses until around age 30. Having made several trips to Europe, he left the family businesses for a two year "grand tour." Upon his return from Europe, he refused to return to the family businesses instead focusing on the management of his personal wealth and the cultivation of his creative interest, including being an active official and exhibitor at horse shows. He believed horse shows were important as disseminators of knowledge about the horse.

In 1912 he purchased a property in Millbrook, NY which he named Killearn. He spent his summers in New York raising Fine Harness horses and show dogs. He grew up foxhunting, show jumping and steeple chasing. But an injury directed his interest to Hackney horses and Fine Harness horses. Maclay became a highly successful competitor with Fine Harness horses all of whom had "Killearn" in their name. Among Maclay's interests were judging and showing dogs, including fox terriers, mastiffs, Pomeranians, and setters; collecting one of the finest libraries of American books on sports; collecting American glass which he sold at auction in 1935 for $24,000 (during the heart of the Great Depression); and developing his winter home in Tallahassee, Florida. In 1919, Alfred Maclay married Louise Fleischman (of the Fleischman yeast family). His wife's two brothers had winter plantations near Tallahassee, Florida. After several visits, in 1923 he and Louise bought the original parcel of what has become the Alfred B. Maclay Gardens State Park. As with his New York farm, Maclay named his Florida gardens Killearn, after the birth place of his great- great-grandfather in Scotland. The gardens focused on plants that would bloom during the winter and early spring when the Maclay family was in residence. Camellias are the backbone of the Gardens which are also well planted with rhododendron, sago palms, wisteria, cherry trees, redbuds, oriental magnolias, dogwoods and azaleas. Alfred Maclay died in 1944 and his wife, Louise, continued the development of the Tallahassee gardens. She opened the

Gardens to the public in 1946 and in 1953 donated some 307 acres of property to the Florida Board of Park Service. Whether you watch a qualifying class; enter with a local, regional, or national goal; or watch with admiration its graduate horsemen; remember the man who started the class and why it has a multitude of monikers - ASPCA or Maclay or NHSAA. Mr. Maclay's commitment to excellent competition created one of the most outstanding riding competitions for young jumping riders. This coveted Championship has produced many of our country's finest horsemen, past and present. Look at the list below and note how many winners have gone on to represent the US in international competition (noted with *on list below).

Uh oh!” Why you should have – and use – a second-nature operations risk management plan.

Bits & Tips RISK. A scary word. A word that brings to mind only bad

Bits & Tips

RISK. A scary word. A word that brings to mind only bad and nothing good. Particularly when thinking about our horses, barns, and businesses. But we all need to keep risk on our minds, and in the end we will find that focusing on risk “up front” can save a lot of headaches and expense. So what is “risk”? It is the possibility of loss or damage in our lives. And it is based on the circumstances we are in at any time and place. Since risk exists in the real world, which is constantly changing, it is an element we want to -- and can -- manage. This effort to manage risk is best done before any damage occurs, and then should become second-nature. Why? Because it simply costs less in terms of time, talent, and effort to prevent a problem from arising (proactively), than it does to “mop it up” afterwards (reactively). It is far less expensive to buy and wear a helmet than it is for a hospital ER visit. You should approach all elements of your equine operations –professional or amateur – with an understanding that things can go wrong, but without panicking. Then you structure your activities to predict what

could go awry, but simultaneously anticipate that things will probably be just fine in the end. By doing so you are prepared for the worst and hoping for the best. Hunter/jumpers, steeplechase jockeys, and barrel racers start looking for the next obstacle just as they are going over the one in front of them. So, they are expecting to successfully complete that obstacle while preparing for the challenge of the next. Proactive risk management should likewise be applied to the more mundane aspects of your activities. “Reverse- engineer” what does and does not go well, and create checklists to increase desired outcomes and limit the undesired. It can be difficult to memorize all the things which are urgent, important, or ordinary, and which must be addressed right now, soon, or later. When you walk your barn you need to remember to look up to see roof leaks and pest infestations, and to look down to see floor obstructions and slippery spots. It is just plain easier to have your “be on the lookout” items identified in advance and in writing. The next step is to take your proactive risk management lists and pre-schedule the

activities you identified on those lists. Some things you need to do in the morning and then again in the evening. Some daily. Weekly. And on other time-frames. You need to order feed, supplements, and other consumable materials in advance because of the lead-time required to receive them. If you calendar reviews of your supplies, you will not run-out and, additionally, you can keep an eye on your budget. Also, if you pre-schedule, and then implement your schedule, your specific focus on risk will become second-nature to you and a part of your normal operations. The paragraphs above list only a sampling of the types of activities you should review on an ongoing basis. Here are some others:

If you are organized as a corporation, LLC, or other business entity, you need to hold required meetings and file state reports. You need to maintain assets like trucks, tractors, or other machines. You need to renew your insurance policies. You need file payroll, tax, and benefits documents if you have employees. And… you need to arrange for veterinarian, dentist, and farrier appointments, among others. Think through everything you do and have. You will then know the topics needed

Whittenburg added that there is great news for horse owners in the market for a new pasture vacuum. “Because our warehouse is moving, we can offer new clients substantial savings. Right now you can save $1100 on a Paddock Vac and $450 on a Maxi.” For more information on the Pasture Vacuum equipment, visit their website at www.pasturevacuums.com .

to keep your world running smoothly. The risks will not disappear. They cannot because the world is always changing. People come and go. The weather changes. A horse’s health fluctuates. Prices rise and fall. Do not worry, just be ready. Again, why? Because you do not want to waste the time you could be spending doing the things you like on the things you do not like. Proactive risk management in your operations lets you focus on what you like by making your risk-management related activities regular, routine, and second nature.

Juliana Whittenburg, President of PastureVacuums.com, had already teamed up with Hoag and is now partnering with Steiner, to have the dressage stars help spread the word about the innovative pasture vacuums. The Paddock Vac, which easily hooks up to a riding lawn mower, small tractor or golf cart, helps with pasture maintenance as well as fly and bacterial control. “The Paddock Vac allows barn owners to get the maximum amount of work done in the minimum amount of time. It also enables farms to keep the highest standard of cleanliness in the paddocks and in the barn, which is essential for a healthy and pest-free environment for horses," Hoag said. “I took my Paddock Vac to Betsy’s

farm in New Jersey and she was immediately hooked on it.” Steiner, who has provided commentary for videos of the World Cup, the Olympic Games and Dressage at Devon, has a summer farm in Frenchtown, New Jersey, and spends her winter months in Wellington. Steiner has authored the book Gymnastic Training System Using the Mind, Body, Spirit Approach and developed Equilates, a sport-specific Pilates-based exercises and body awareness program for the equestrian. Steiner is highly sought after as a clinician and trainer. Pasture Vacuums, which offers a large model and a mid-size vacuum, enables the operator to vacuum the manure out of important grazing pastures, leaving a healthy green bed of grass behind. It is also great for spot cleaning manure in the arena. The Paddock Vac has also proven its versatility from cleaning up the interior of a barn to harvesting fruits, nuts and other debris decomposing in a pasture. The pasture vacuum has

Paddock Vac Sponsors International Dressage Rider Betsy Steiner

Frenchtown, NJ (April 7, 2010) – International dressage rider and trainer Betsy Steiner, who represented the United States in the World Equestrian Games, has been on the forefront of the dressage industry for many years. The founder of Equilates, a unique program for equestrians that has its basis in Pilates, Steiner is always looking for products that are beneficial for both horses and riders. When Steiner’s long-time student Tami Hoag, a New York Times bestselling novelist and professional dressage rider, introduced Steiner to the Paddock Vac, Steiner knew she had found a product she could stand behind. The Paddock Vac, distributed by PastureVacuums.com, is an innovative pasture/stall vacuum that allows manure to be vacuumed out of fields, paddocks and stalls.
