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.

* Freedom of Information Summary, Original New Animal Drug Application, NADA 141-427, for OSPHOS. April 28, 2014.
CAUTION: Federal law restricts this drug to use by or on the order of licensed veterinarian.
OSPHOS contains clodronate disodium, a bisphosphonate indicated
for the control of clinical signs associated with navicular syndrome
in horses. OSPHOS is the only FDA-approved bisphosphonate
for use in horses that is labeled for intramuscular injection.
In a clinical trial evaluating OSPHOS in 86 horses, lameness
improved in 74.7% of horses by at least one grade 56 days
after treatment. Only 9% of horses displayed clinical signs of
being uncomfortable, nervous, colicky and or pawing
after receiving OSPHOS. Less than 1% of horses
experienced colic requiring treatment.
WITH OSPHOS THE BENEFITS ARE CLEAR . . .
A stride forward
for Navicular Syndrome
Introducing OSPHOS, the new
FDA approved intramuscular
bisphosphonate injection from
Dechra Veterinary Products
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, chloro-
containing 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.
Bisphosphonates affect plasma concentrations of some minerals and
electrolytes such as calcium, magnesium and potassium, immedi-
ately 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. hyper-
kalemic 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.

Mary Babick Named Next President
of the USHJA
Four-year term to begin December 15
following the USHJA Annual Meeting
e United States Hunter Jumper Association
Board of Directors elected Mary Babick as the
next president of the organization, during the
Board of Directors meeting held in Dallas,
Texas. Babick will take oce on December 15,
following the nal Board of Directors meeting
of the USHJA Annual Meeting, which will be
held in Palm Springs, California.
Mary Babick, president-elect of the USHJA
e election consisted of brief presentations
from both candidates, Mary Babick and
Diane Carney, followed by a question-and-
answer session with the board. Board members
conducted their vote by secret ballot. A recorded
webcast of the election will be available on the
USHJA website no later than September 13.
"It's such an honor and a huge responsibility to
be selected as president," said Babick after the
election. "I look forward to working in concert
with other passionate volunteers to unite our
industry, tackle our problems and, in so doing,
assist in the development of our future leaders."
A professional horsewoman for 38 years,
Babick has trained several well-known riders
in hunter, jumper and equitation, who have
continued successful careers in the industry. She
is a USEF Registered judge and has ociated
at competitions all across the United States.
Babick earned her instructor certication from
the British Horse Society and is a USHJA
Certied Trainer. Also, she has trained in
certied management accounting and worked
on Wall Street in the area of compliance.
Babick has served as a member of the
USHJA Board of Directors since 2010, most
recently serving as the Hunter Discipline Vice
President and a member of the Executive
Committee since 2012. Additionally, Babick
has served on the Planning Committee, the
Emerging Athletes Committee (on which
she still serves), as well as chairing the Youth
Committee. Her committee work dates back
to the earliest USHJA committees. In addition
to her USHJA service, Babick currently serves
as Chair of both the USEF National Breeds
and Disciplines Council as well as its Horse
Identication Task Force.
"e USHJA has an incredibly bright future,
and I look forward to Mary's leadership
continuing to improve our excellent member
services while growing our sport," said Bill
Moroney, current USHJA president on leave
of absence and CEO of the United States
Equestrian Federation, who presided over the
election. "As Mary transitions into the role
over the next several months prior to taking
oce, I look forward to working with her to
ensure a smooth transition for our members,
volunteers and sta."
Over the next three months, the president-
elect will work with the current president
and ocers to ensure a smooth transition
of leadership in December. Additionally, in
December, the USHJA Board of Directors will
elect a new treasurer, national vice president,
and three at-large board of director positions.
ese will all be seated following the December
15 board meeting.
"We appreciate the Board's time and
leadership in electing a new president," said
Kevin Price, USHJA executive director. "On
behalf of the sta, we look forward to working
with Mary throughout the transition period
and when she takes oce in December."

spend my life with horses, fellow horse-
people and involved in a sport that has
aorded me such a fullling lifestyle. What
other endeavor allows you to practice, (if
not master) such a variety of physical skills
from riding horses and all the requisite
care and maintenance that accompanies
having them, to driving equipment and live
animals thousands of miles, (which will in
fact develop anyone’s mechanical skills no
matter how determinedly latent they are) to
xing pipes, dabbling (however unwillingly)
in minor electrical repairs, building courses,
jumps, arenas, barns....we all know I could
go on for a good long time and still not
cover all the opportunities available to us
when we chose this lifestyle. Mostly vastly
for better, occasionally dramatically for
worse, its a predominately outdoor activity
that promotes physical tness, health and
well being. Happily, we also have the chance
to measure, improve and promote ourselves
in competition and there is also ample
travel involved and plenty of fascinating
people to meet everywhere we go. Perhaps
most importantly to me, there is a great
incentive to be your absolute best self every
single minute you are in the company of
your beloved and sensitive horses. For me
to be my best self I constantly strive for
calm, focused, compassionate and incredibly
attentive concentration with a healthy dose
of joy, wonder and appreciation ever present.
I have always found the Greek athletic
ideal of the integration of healthy mind and
a healthy body to be tremendously inspiring
and motivating. ey believed that the
development of the mind, spirit and body
were linked and that any athletic victory
was a credit to both the athlete’s physical
as well as moral virtues. ey also thought
that physical training was valuable for its
role in the development of such qualities
as endurance, patience and something that
translates approximately to composure or
sportsmanship. Clearly, this is philosophy
to live by in our mutual endeavors with our
equestrian partners, as well as to become
your best possible self.
Daniel Zilla, someone who I think
exemplies the holistic approach to riding
and unsurprisingly consistently produces
both lovely young horses from Branscomb
Farms as well as excellent results in the
show ring, sent me a “Charter for the
Classical Rider which I quote from with his
permission:
We ourselves need discipline if we are
to be able, sensitive riders. is involves
discipline of the mind as well as the body.
We owe it to our horses to be as balanced,
centered and disciplined as possible when
we ride. We should strive to think positively
and look for the best in everything around
us. We owe it to our horses to be in a positive
frame of mind when we ride. If we ever feel
angry, frustrated, pent up or even very tired,
we would do better to go for a hack, rather
than try to train or school our horse. e
proof of the classically trained horse is that
he will grow more beautiful. e rider too
will become centered in every sense of the
word. Classical riding is more than an art, it
is a philosophy, a way of life.”
As usual, I feel such gratitude to the
magnicent horses who serve as our
inspiration, barometer and nally, the
ultimate reection of own mind, spirit and
body integration. May we all be our very best
selves.

T
he highlight of the Longines Masters of
Los Angeles, completing four days of world
class show jumping, was the $377,500
Longines Grand Prix CSI5*, a formidable 1.60m
course designed by Uliano Vezzani(ITA) would not
disappoint the knowledgeable audience who came to
Long Beach, CA to watch this exciting event.
Of the 35 entries, from around the globe, entered
in the Grand Prix, 10 jumped clear rst to head into
that all-important jump-o.
Daniel Deusser (GER) and the 12-year-old bay
mare Equita van't Zorgvliet set speed required to
win. Eighth to enter the ring, the pair accelerated
around the course, Daniel had faith in this fantastic
horse, asking for exceptional turns, they clipped
a plank but luck was on their side and it stayed in
place, setting a time to beat of 37.67.
Deusser has now set himself with the opportunity
to be the rst rider in the world to compete for
the new Super Grand Slam Bonus of 2.25 Million Euros,
the requirement being he is rst on the podium in Paris in
December and Hong Kong in early February 2017. If Deusser
wins in Paris, he will be eligible for a half a Million Euro bonus,
we wish him success.
“I realized on ursday that I’d never jumped her indoors
before,” Deusser laughed. “e rst two days were not amazing,
she had one down the rst day and the last fence down yesterday.
But today she tried really hard. I saw that on the West Coast
here they ride really fast, so I knew I had to take risks." said
Deusser refering to Nayal Nassar and his 38.55 time to beat.
I took all the risks and was lucky on the planks, but again, she
played the game today.” Deusser continued.
Deusser's conceded that going into the jump-o he did not
have a plan, the only aim being to go as fast as possible., “I have
a horse that has a little bigger stride than Nayel’s, so I was sure
that from fence one to two the seven strides would work for me.
But his horse is naturally really fast. I had a good turn to the
double and it was just enough.”
Deusser plans to continue on to Paris and Hong Kong,"We have
two amazing shows there, and after today the bonus sounds great;
but it will be really dicult to do.”
Nayel Nassar, riding for Egypt (but based in Southern California)
were set the task of being rst in the jump-o; riding the great
Hanoverian, Lordan they set a time to chase, stopping the clock
at 38.55 seconds.
While four others were also able to post another clear, the only
one to come close and ultimately beat his time was eventual
winner Deusser. No other pair could drive down the time beyond
39 seconds.

Nayel was delighted with the second place, he was very pleased
with Lordan, even pointing down at him after his clean
performance in the rst round, acknowledging the partnership.
“I want to thank the organizers for allowing me to be here,
this is a unique and rare opportunity for me. As for my week, it
couldnt have been much better. Well, unless this guy knocked a
rail,” Nassar joked, pointing at Deusser. “But no, I’m so happy
with my horse. I know him so well at this point.
Today I just tried to give him the best chance to be good and
he was – he is such an incredible horse. e rst line for me was
eight strides – who knew that these guys would run down there
in seven! On the rollback to the double I actually popped right
out of my stirrup. I tried to get it back, but there was no chance.
“I just ignored it, but I had to stick an extra stride in at the
liverpool,” Nassar said. “If I got a good plank I planned to just
run up there in ve, but with the whole stirrup thing going on I
gured I just needed to be safe and jump clean. Maybe thats the
only place I could have been faster, but I’m so happy to be up here
with these amazing riders, and I’m so proud of my horse.”
Harrie Smolders (NED) riding Don VHP Z nished in a
time of 39.31, good enough for third. is horse is owned by
Copernicus Stables in California, so it was great that he was able
to return to compete in this huge yet home based competition.
“It was really hard today, there were a few roll-back turns and
that is dicult for my horse, because he slows down a little
bit, explained Smolders. "I tried to make the turns as short as
possible, and I was also able to get the seven strides up the rst
line. e owners were very delighted that the horse came back to
California and the owner could here today; they got to see how
he is and they were very happy that we were so successful.”

NovemBer 2016 Your Sport, Your NewS, Your BuSiNeSS 23
e Longines Speed Challenge is an exciting class to watch with the
riders using skill, judgement and clever tactics to win.
e centerpiece to the course an octagon of rails; with six of the sides
creating two options for an a/b combination. is unique obstacle
certainly provided problems for several riders and horses, some having
to attempt to jump out of the circle after tricky stops as the horses got
confused as to the next fence out.
Nayel Nassar and his clever stallion Lordan handled the octagon
challenge with ease, they kept the pedal to the metal, and turned in a
superb clear round, stopping the clock at 63.47.
In second place was Kevin Staut riding Elky van het Indihof HDC.
is pair ew around the course, and would have grabbed the win away
from Nassar had it not been for a rail that added two seconds to their
time. ey broke the timers at 63.90.
In third was Samuel Parot with Quick du Pottier. e pair from Chile
jumped clear, but it was their time of 65.18 that relegated them to that
third slot. Parot's ride was something to watch.

8. Leontine Ledimar HDC – Patrice Delaveau – France – 68.77
In talking to Nayel in the days after his successful time at the Longines
Masters of Los Angeles we talked about his partnership with Lordan.
Nassar bought Lordan as a seven-year-old, ve years on and together
they have competed in a World Cup Final and the World Equestrian
Games, won the 2013 HITS Zoetis $1 in Saugerties, NY and nished
second in the HITS $1 Million class at ermal in 2014. In 2015 injury
kept Lordan at home but after great care he is back and has continued
as expected as a great partner for Nayel.
Personable and popular Nayel has had an excellent year and is delighted
with second in the Longines Grand Prix and of course with the win in
this Speed Challenge.
“Lordan is certainly special, for sure he is one of the best horses out
there. I’ve had him a very long time so I know him very well , I’m never
overly concerned about what courses they are going to build or how we
are going to tackle them. He is so rideable that you never have to worry
about the technical challenge of the course." Nayel explained. “I just
have to be sure that he is ready to peak at the right time. He is denitely
peaking now, I would say. He is just an incredible horse, really careful
and has all the skills required for success. He used to be a little spooky
and he would look down, but has pretty much gotten over that now."
“He walked into the ring the rst day and he was very competitive,”
Nassar continued. “at was on the Friday, his rst time in that ring
and we won the class, he is just so reliable, always wants to do well and
do a good job. At the end of the day he maybe lacks a little bit of stride,
but he has so much jump and so much impulsion in his canter that he
makes up for it.”
Nayel explained that the versatile Lordan is really fun to ride, building
the initial team took a bit of time, as the horse was quite green as only a
7-year-old. Also Lordan could occasionally be so careful that sometimes
he would almost do too good of a job.
“I had to make him understand that he didnt have to always jump so
high all the time, but generally speaking he is pretty simple, and I know
him so well, that for me he is quite straightforward.”
In addition to Lordan, Nayel also takes the nine-year-old Holsteiner mare
Acita on the road with him and she has been in his stable for two years.
“I bought Acita as a seven-year-old, and she has been quite a good second
horse for me. She has just started to come into her own and jump the
bigger FEI classes and some Grand Prix, to take the load o of Lordan a
little bit. She is pretty game for everything considering she is only nine."
Nayel explained. "Acita has a really good mind and wants to do a good
job, is relatively simple and at the end of the day, very predictable. It is
nice to have a horse like that, one you can put into the big class here and
there and not have to worry about how she will handle all the questions
you ask.” Nayel continued.
Being versatile is an important part of show jumping and becoming a
reliable team member, Acita has all of these qualities. Like Lordan, she
has won both indoors and outdoors and will feature in Nayel future.
Nayel's sense of fun led him to take part in the Charity Pro-Am, and
he paired up with Sloan Elmassian to grab a victory with a disco-themed
routine to Staying Alive. e theme and song were not Nayel's idea but he
played his part to the fullest, both Nayel and Sloan wore silver suits ; Slone
had silver hair while spectacular wigs nished of Nayel and Dunsoghly
Junior (Nayel's horse for the evening) costumes. As they discoed and
jumped across the arena they took home the prize for Ride On.
Ride On is an organization whose mission it is to enhance the quality
of life of people with disabilities using equine-related therapy, recreation,
and fun. In all, a total of $250,000 was raised for the charities.
is was the rst time that the Longines Masters was held in the
Long Beach Convention Center, Nayel’s opinion of the event was high.
e event did not lack to much; he felt the stalls could have been more
strategically placed, and that the warm-up ring and retail space, being a
short walk, changed the atmosphere slightly.
“But,” he stated, “the ring itself was incredible and allowed for way more
spectators. Hopefully one day they will ll all those seats to the extent
that they do in Paris.”
We will bring you more from Nayel Nassar in the next edition of e
Competitive Equestrian.

Two-time Olympic gold medalist McLain Ward edged out
17-year-old Lucy Deslauriers to win the $75,000 Douglas
Elliman Grand Prix Qualier, presented by Longines for the
second consecutive year at the 41
st
annual Hampton Classic
Horse Show.
Deslauriers went second of the eight who reached the jump-o
by riding clear over the Alan Wade-designed rst-round course.
She set the mark to beat with a clean jump-o ride 40.75 seconds
on Hester, owned by Lisa Deslauriers and it looked like she might
have the blue ribbon until Ward, going next to last, clipped o
more than a second on HH Carlos Z, owned by Double H Farm,
stopping the timers at 39.31 seconds.
“Lucy is a great young rider with a very exciting future. Im
excited for her to be on some teams with me in the future, so my
hats o to her, said Ward. “I have a seasoned horse and he’s very
good at the speed part. Normally, if he’s in the jump-o, we have
a very good chance to win. He just has great foot speed.”
Deslauiers was amazed at her runner-up nish. “It was a
really great class and I am almost shocked at the results,” said
Deslauriers. “My horse is incredible and I didnt have much to
lose going against these top riders. I just gave it my all and hoped
it would be enough. Losing to McLain is not a very bad thing.”
One year ago, Ward won this class on HH Azur on his way to the
Rio Olympic Games, where the pair won a team silver medal, but
this year he almost didnt make it past the rst round with Carlos
Z.
“I didnt think I rode him well in the rst round,” said Ward.
“I lost my stirrup, which I can’t remember the last time thats
happened, so I thought I was a little bit lucky to get a clear.
Sometimes that just works in your favor; you just take a deep
breath.”

In one of the most exciting jump-o rounds in the 41-year
history of the Hampton Classic, Richie Moloney (IRL) blazed
around the course on Carrabis Z, owned by Equinimity, LLC, to
claim the top prize in the $300,000 Hampton Classic Grand Prix,
presented by Longines.
“Its special, its a great show and always a great crowd here,” said
Moloney.We try to have our horses in top form for this week.
It means a lot to win the Grand Prix here. My horse has been
amazing, this is his fourth grand prix win. Its very good to have
him and I’m lucky to have my owners at Equinimity, and a great
sta. I’m just thankful, without all of those people this wouldnt
be possible.”
e victory gave Moloney the $30,000 Longines Rider Challenge
as the horse shows leading open jumper rider for third time in

put him 98 points ahead of Catherine Tyree who nished second

time of 39.57 seconds with just one to go.
“Everything showed up nicely, said Moloney. “I took a bit of a
chance in the second to last fence and I rubbed it. I was a little
lucky, but I guess it was our day.”
Andrew Welles (USA) tried his best to beat the lightning
fast round of Moloneys on Brindis Bogibo, owned by AEM
Enterprises, LLC. He stopped the timers in 41.15, only three
one-hundredths of a second slower than Jacobs, good for third
place.
“Its unbelievable,” said Welles. “I am so fortunate to be able to
ride this horse. He rode seven rounds this week, counting jump-
os, and turned in seven clean rounds. is was a beautiful way
to end an amazing week. To be third in this Grand Prix is just
incredible.”

O3 Animal Health Minute Tip
The Horse’s Mouth
Meredith Kahn, MS
Equine Nutrition Consultant
O|3Animal Health, LLC.
H
orses are grazing animals that chew as they graze.
Domesticated horses that live primarily o of
hay rather than fresh pasture grass, chew as they
consume what is oered to them. As natural grazers, stalled
horses benet from small meals oered frequently, as their
system was designed for a fairly constant inux of grass.
Digestion in the horse begins as early as the mouth, rst with
the lips and then the teeth. e lips contain more nerves than
the rest of the entire face and act as a funnel for drinking, but
also as a mechanism to sort and consume various feedstus.
Teeth are vital to the horse’s well being. In fact, sound
teeth can decrease forage particle size to less than 1.6 mm.
Horses chew in a sideways or circular motion and the lower
arcade is slightly smaller than the upper arcade. As such, they
begin to develop points on the inside of the lower arcade
and on the outside of the upper arcade. ese points can be
maintained and led down with regular dentistry check-ups
every 6 months to a year, depending on the horse. Horses
that consume a greater amount of hay may have less severe
points than those that require large quantities of grain in the
diet. Grains have a smaller particle size than hays. Horses
that consume larger amount of concentrate in the diet are
less likely to naturally knock sharp edges that form over time
with the circular chewing motion.
ree salivary glands, the parotid, mandibular and sublingual,
are stimulated by the presence of feed. Increased chewing
produces more saliva. Forages have a larger particle size than
grains and, therefore, more saliva is produced. In fact, saliva
production is approximately two times greater for hay or grass
than for grains and concentrates. Unlike human saliva, the
saliva produced in the horse’s mouth has little to no enzymatic
activity. Instead, saliva primarily acts as a mechanism for
lubrication and to buer the stomach. e diet mixes with
saliva in the mouth and then proceeds to move down the
horse’s one-way esophagus into the stomach.
Next time we will go into more detailed information on
the esophagus and the stomach!
FYI: Fat is a great energy source for horses, however fat
digestion begins later on down the digestive track. Digestion
in the mouth begins as saliva mixes with incoming feedstus,
forming moist, lightly formed balls that can be easily swallowed.
Equine Omega Complete is a complete supplement used by
some of the top horse trainers, horse owners and veterinarians
to provide the perfect fat for proper cell function.
About the Author: Growing up in the San Francisco Bay Area,
Meredith developed an immediate passion for horses when she began
taking riding lessons at the age of ve. She has been riding and
showing Hunter Jumpers as a member of KMC Farm, currently
located at Sonoma Horse Park, since 2003. After graduating
from e University of San Francisco with a Bachelors degree in
Biology, Meredith decided to further her education in a eld where
she could concentrate on helping horses. In 2014 she earned her
Master’s degree in Animal Science, with an emphasis in equine
nutrition, from Texas A&M University. Now back in California,
as our Equine Nutrition Consultant, Meredith uses her education
and extensive background as an equestrian to advise and educate
clients about our products and assist with their horse’s nutritional
needs. Meredith is excited to be a part of the wonderful team at

SAVORING SUMMER AND
FOSTERING TALENT -
BLENHEIM EQUISPORTS
by Pam Maley
I
n their ongoing commitment to oer opportunities
for developing talent, Blenheim Equisports, along
with the support of sponsors Markel Insurance and
Interactive Mortgage, host two successful series
throughout the season that allow West Coast riders to ride
in a competitive setting, with top course designers, and
earn a spot in a prestigious nals at e Las Vegas National
Horse Show.
Both series oered qualiers throughout the Spring,
Summer and Fall, with an impressive list of horses and
riders coming to the forefront. Along with names often
seen in the California grand prix ring, such as Michelle
Parker, Susie Hutchison, Chris Pratt, Josephina Lantzman,
Nayel Nassar and Lane Clarke; some up and coming riders
also earned recognition, including Zazou Homan, Mavis
Spencer and Tina Yates.
Now wrapping up its third year, the Markel Insurance
1.40m Grand Prix series has grown exponentially. Oering
over $300,000 in prize money, the series qualiers run
throughout the season and culminate as the top 25 qualiers

meet in the Final at the South Point
Arena & Equestrian Center in Las
Vegas on Wednesday, November 16th.
e purse for the Final, which increased
with every qualier, has grown to over
$60,000.
Supporting young riders and giving
them the stepping stones to excel in the
sport of show jumping is essential in
developing the next big stars. Together
with Evette and Gregg Delong of
Interactive Mortgage, Blenheim has
set the stage for the youth in our sport
to shine. Looking to oer West Coast
U25 riders the opportunities already
available for East Coast riders, in
2015 they introduced the Interactive
Mortgage U25 Series and Final.
e Interactive Mortgage U25 Series
Qualiers run concurrently with
the Markel Insurance Grand Prix,
providing an opportunity for young
riders not only to compete against
the veterans, but to earn prizes in two
qualiers. Now in its second year, U25
participation has doubled this season,
with promising young talent holding
their own against the experienced show
jumpers.
e series began early in the season,
and new this year will end with the
addition of two qualiers at the
two-week HITS Sunshine Series in
November. Directly following those
classes, twenty-ve U25 riders from
around the nation will head to e
Las Vegas National for the inaugural
$25,000 Interactive Mortgage U25
Developing Rider Finals.
First to Win Leads the Pack
Californian Michelle Parker took
home the blue on Vancouver 45 as well
as the white (4th) ribbon on Cupilor
in the inaugural Markel Insurance
1.40m Grand Prix Series qualier of
the season.
Parker’s horses are young, yet quite
talented. Both can turn up the speed
in a jump-o and they have the
placings to prove it. At nine-years-old,
Vancouver 45 has consistently ribboned
in both 1.35m and 1.40m classes this
season. Parker purchased Cupilor, a ashy chestnut with lots of chrome, from
Branscomb Farms as a four-year-old. In 2013, they won the YJC Western
League Six-Year-Old Finals, and continue to shine at the 1.40m level.
Originally from Tucson, Parker now calls San Marcos home. She owns and
runs Cross Creek West, a training and sales stable, with the help of Alejandro
Alvarado and Natasha Traurig. ey specialize in the development of young
horses, of which the above two mounts are an example. She now has a selection
of homebred horses, raised at her mother’s Cross Creek Farms facility in Tucson.
With numerous top placings and a win in the summer, she remains atop the list
of qualied riders Looking to clinch the big victory to wrap up the 2016 season,
Parker will be one to watch in Las Vegas.

A Qualier Makes History
On Sunday, September 19th, forty-ve
horse and rider combinations took the
eld in the $30,000 Markel Insurance
1.40m Grand Prix, and eight qualied
for the jump-o.
First and fth to return, Tina (Dilandri)
Yates was not only double clear on both
of her horses, Highpoint Farm, LLC’s
Bowmore VDL and HKC Collection,
LLC’s Cicomein VDL, she tied her own
jump-o time to the thousandth of a
second! is amazing feat silenced the
crowd for a second so they could absorb
what had just happened, before they
burst into cheers. Yates nished double
rst, tied with herself on her two talented
Dutch bays, and taking a combination of
rst and second place prize money for a
fabulous nish to a thrilling class.
Also from Arizona, Yates grew up in
Scottsdale, and successfully competed
quite a bit in California in her junior
years. As an amateur she met former
Yorkshireman Craig Yates, the trainer
and head of international imports for
Hyperion Stud, and they developed a
professional relationship that evolved
into a personal one. e couple married
in December of 2015 and live in
Wellington, Florida. rough working
with her husband, Yates has clearly
taken her riding to a new level. Together
they run Highpoint Farm, LLC.
Yates and her husband brought their
horses to the West Coast for the fall
season. From young horses to FEI
mounts, they have had a series of
successes and will complete their tour at
e Las Vegas National.
Homan Rises to the Top
Zazou Homan, currently second in
the Interactive Mortgage U25 Series
Standings, has logged hours of hard
work into the sport, committing her
junior years to achieving equitation

both mentally and physically, it makes me proud of them and it makes me
proud of our staff.” She continued, “It takes a whole lot of people to keep
things together when I am going from Saugerties to home from Kentucky
to home to Central Park to Capital Challenge, it takes a well oiled team at
home. My success has to do as much with the people that keep it running at
home; Kylee Arbuckle, Heather Roades and my husband Ned, without this
strong team behind me I could not do what I do.
“Sonoma Horse Park, other than Menlo Charity Horse Show, is the only
facility to offer an International Hunter Derby in Northern California. I think
people in the rest of the country don’t realize that Northern California,
where we are here, is eight to eleven hours drive from Southern California.
Glynn explained. “I can’t just pop in the trailer and head to a USHJA Hunter
Derby, but here I have this beautiful location in Sonoma right on my
doorstep, and I can sleep in my own bed at night. My daughter Avery gets
to go to her school and not miss school to show. It says a lot when Avery
was offered to ride ponies at Middleburg and at Capital Challenge and she
said, “boy this is a hard decision for me because I am really going to miss
riding at Sonoma” she really loves it and all her friends are here.” Glynn
added,Ashley always asks every year, what can we do to make it a better
experience for you and your clients, I greatly appreciate that.

Baldira and Texel.
“It’s fun to be back, I love this venue and the people are kind,
the management, rider and owners.” Azevedo explained,We
had a great Welcome Prix earlier in the week with nine clear
rounds. Here we also have up and coming riders and green
horses, so I try to do the best for them. The riders and horses
have to have fun when they ride a course, so I try to be tough
enough but not so hard that they can have major problems.
After the wonderful ribbons and prizes were presented and
Baldira was returned to the barn, Texel talked of his delight with
the win.
“I have been away for two weeks with a student of mine,
Uma O’Neill, out in New York competing on the East Coast. I
returned a few days before the show and got back on Baldira;
this competition for me was serving the purpose of preparing
for the big Longines FEI World Cup Jumping
TM
qualifying
Grand Prix (Sacramento and Del Mar) and I thought this
competition is perfect and the timing worked out. That is one
of the wonderful things about this competition, it’s location
and convenience at a wonderful facility, which they continually
improve and the venue looks fantastic right now. For my
students, and myself to come and prepare, this is a great
venue, the courses are challenging and nothing is easy you
have to work hard for it. I didn’t have a lot of expectations for
Baldira today but I am very pleased that she rose up through
the week.

Owens highlighted how important Sonoma Horse Park is to her, having
attended events at the venue since the very beginning.
“I come to every single horse show, it’s the best place to show, the
footing is great, and just 45 minutes from my house so I never need a
hotel. We bring all the horses, even those that just need to hang out

A
s the host of the World Championship Hunter
Rider (WCHR) Finals and four equitation nals,
no horse show showcases the highest level of hunter
and equitation competition quite like Capital Challenge.
is year’s show, held October 1-9 at the Prince George’s
Equestrian Center in Upper Marlboro, MD, featured a record
number of entries from across the country and the same high-
caliber competition that exhibitors and spectators have come
to expect.
“Its really nice to show in such competitive divisions with
so many people,” said Stephanie Danhakl of Pacic Palisades,
CA.is show attracts riders from all over the country. It
really feels special to be here and have a division of 35 people.
ey really make a big deal of the hunters here, so its also fun
to watch and fun to see the hunters in the spotlight.”
Danhakl was one of the weeks big winners riding away
with both the Grand Champion Amateur-Owner 3’3” Hunter
and Grand Champion Amateur-Owner 3’6” Hunter titles.

titles, Danhakl also earned the Amateur-Owner 18-35 3’3”
Hunter championship on Quest and reserve championship
on Enough Said and the Amateur-Owner 18-35 3’6” Hunter
championship on Golden Rule and the reserve on First Light.
While Danhakl dominated the Amateur-Owner
competition, her trainer Scott Stewart of Wellington, FL,
was among the top riders continually seeing success in the
professional hunter divisions. Stewart opened the week by
earning the Second Year Green Hunter championship aboard
Catch Me, owned by David Gochman. e pair then followed
up their championship with the win in the $25,000 WCHR
Professional Challenge – a repeat performance as the duo
was also victorious in 2015. Stewart also rode to the win in
the $25,000 Future Hunter North American Championships
aboard Private Life.
Taking the Grand Hunter Championship title and the
Leading Hunter Rider honor was John French of Woodside,
CA, who rode to the win aboard Boss, owned by Laura
Wasserman.

is is the toughest, I think, of all the horse shows because
everybodys here,” French said. “ere are a lot more horses
here than any of the indoors. To be grand champion at this
show is pretty special. e top horses come here. Its the
biggest divisions, and they’ve got the special young horse
classes. Its not only a great show for the horses, but for
the riders. e riders get a lot of recognition here too with
the [WCHR Professional Challenge] and the [WCHR
Professional Finals]. It showcases the riders as well as the
horses.”
French capped o his time at the Capital Challenge Horse
Show with a win in the very class he spoke of, the $5,000
WCHR Professional Finals, this time aboard Small Gesture,
owned by Chris Iwasaki and Elizabeth Reilly.

F
or the rst time in my 10 years as owner of e Equestrians Concierge, the
Autumn story is not brown and green, but rather some unexpected pairings
and rich tones that will spill over into the 2017 season.
THE NEW NEUTRALS
e biggest news for Fall’16 is the pairing of what EQ calls
e New Neutrals: grey and camel. Colours blur from graphite
to warm grey, moving to taupe to tan.
Equestrian fashion is lock-step with mainstream designers:
“Seen at this years NYs Fashion Week … varying
shades of tan, perhaps the chicest, most classic color there is,
from muted khaki to soft camel.” StyleCaster
Fll 2016 Fshion Tends
Ashley Matchett Woods, The Equestrian’s Concierge
THE CLASSICS CONTINUE
Traditional equestrian looks take center stage –
with details more understated than in recent years.
Contrasting is subtle for an elegant nish, found in
stitching, piping, and of course knee patches.
Our favourites:
- Breeches in tan – but with grey piping
- Contrast in stitching and piping -- not loud
color blocks
- Elbow patches in leather -- and subtle tones
COLOURS OF THE YEAR REMAIN
Similar to our Spring Trends report, the colour
bursts of the season come from Pantone’s Colors
of the Year (Rose Quartz and Serenity Blue)
-- but much more saturated: Teal/Turquoise &
Cranberry/Merlot
SNEAK PEAK ‘17
And also similar to Spring, Grey will be seen at
Winter Circuit, but this time in rich, Gunmetal,
Platinum, and Steel creating drama without fuss.
Quiet details, coupled with the 3-season fabrics,
make show clothes easy-care, easily-packed pieces
that can double as dinner wear.

s riders walked the course for the $50,000 USHJA
International Hunter Derby, spectators seated
under an expansive white tent sipped champagne
while dressed in their Sunday best. Younger guests enjoyed face
painting or a delicious breakfast from the Belgian wae bar,
and they all enjoyed seeing some of the best hunter competition
in the United States. Its all part of the Chicago Hunter Derby,
presented by Canadian Pacic (CP) – a stand-alone hunter derby
unlike any other.
On September 10-11, the Chicago Hunter Derby hosted its
ninth annual event, welcoming equestrians and non-equestrians
alike to Rush and Caroline “Carl Weedens Annali Farm in
Antioch, IL, to watch many of the nations top hunters and to
support four charitable beneciaries.
Hosted each year by Chicago Equestrians for a Cause, the
Chicago Hunter Derby raised funds for the Ann & Robert H.
Lurie Childrens Hospital of Chicago, the University of Chicago
Cancer Research Foundation, the USHJA Foundation, and
Horsefeathers erapeutic Riding in 2016.
e Chicago Hunter Derbys philanthropic eorts not
only raise signicant proceeds for the selected non-prot
organizations, they also help attract spectators from Chicago and
the surrounding area who may be enjoying equestrian sport for
the very rst time.

“It looked like everybody was having a great time under
the tent watching,” said Carl Weeden, co-founder of Chicago
Equestrians for a Cause, the organization behind the Chicago
Hunter Derby. “It really takes a group eort. Everybody really
pulls together. We have a great group of ladies that organize all
of this, so we’re extremely happy with how everything went this
year, and we’re excited to see how much money we were able to
raise for the beneciaries.
is year guests had the opportunity to watch Erica Quinn
and Celtic Fire, owned by CF Partners, take the victory in the
$50,000 USHJA International Hunter Derby.
Just six months ago, Celtic Fire was competing in the grand
prix ring, but on Sunday, September 11, it was the stallions
performance over fences more reminiscent of the hunt eld
that earned him the win. After making the transition from the
jumpers to the hunters, Celtic Fire and rider Erica Quinn, of
Maineville, OH, both made their inaugural visit to the Chicago
Hunter Derby, presented by CP, and it did not disappoint.
e atmosphere here is amazing,” said Quinn, who rides
for Lane Change Farm. Winning my rst time here is a little
overwhelming! It feels great though, and Im just very happy to
get the opportunity to show here.”

Saddle Fit and
\ Girth Galls
By Jochen Schleese, CMS, CSFT, CSE
©2016 Saddlet 4 Life® All Rights Reserved
Tis the season for girth itch and girth galls.
Girth itch - a nasty little infection similar to ringworm that occurs
typically this time of year - hot, sweaty, humid... It typically aects
younger horses or those who are immuno-suppressed, can be spread
by dirty tack or using brushes on multiple horses. Its a pain... it
starts as dandru-like raised akes in the girth area, then spreads,
and eventually can turn into an open wound that then becomes much
more dicult to heal. Tack that is too tight or sti and inexible may
cause this chang that leads further to saddle sores. Occasionally,
a foreign object like a burr may become lodged between tack and
horse, causing chang. Some horses with very sensitive skin are
prone to saddle and girth sores and require extra care.
is can be treated medically, but it is typically caused (and then
worsened) by an ill-tting girth. You may try dierent types of
girths to see if there is any positive eect, but this can happen to you
regardless if you use a $250 leather girth or a $30 synthetic girth. It
could possibly be a reaction to either the tanning process or cleaner
used, or perhaps because of dirt (sand or the like) getting in between
the girth and your horse’s skin, but in reality part of the problem
might simply be the shape and design of the girth you’re using.
We have found the best girth to be one that is shaped like this:
It is about 5” wide in the middle, slightly cut out in the elbow area,
and is super soft and totally smooth on the bottom so no dirt gets in.
Treatment of Girth Galls:
If the problem has progressed to an open sore, sponge the sore
and area around it with saline solution and cover it with a soothing
ointment or cream. Many people like creams or lotions with
calendula or aloe vera. I have found that zinc oxide (as in diaper
cream!) works well. You may also choose to use something with an
antibiotic in it. e main goal is to keep the area clean and the skin
in good condition. However, whether the sore is open or closed no
equipment should be placed over the area until it is healed. It will
be uncomfortable for your horse to wear anything over an area that
is already sore.
Saddlers use (or should use) mixed or pure chemically tanned
leather on saddles and girths, but never on bridles, as this would
cause the skin/hair on the horse’s head to ake. erefore, for bridles
natural (‘vegetable’) tanned leather is preferred. e tanning solution
is made out of bark from the oak trees.
e reason for the industry to use chrome , mix-, or chemical
tanning is so the sweat wont penetrate into the girth, (as unfortunately
the truth is that most riders do not clean properly their tack, which
leads to replacement of tack more often than might actually be
necessary with proper care!)
Which is a perfect segue into the next point I want to make –
taking proper care of your equipment (and thereby extending its
lifespan!) I know you may remember that I wrote an entire article
November 2016 Your News 91
on the care and maintenance of your investments over a year ago in
FC, but I nd that the message cannot bear repeating often enough
as people quickly ‘forget something that has not become a habit.
ere are many products on the market to help you take care of
your saddle and tack – and regular cleaning and maintenance is just
as important as changing the oil on your car or buying new tires. Its
all about safety and keeping your investment working.
Its highly recommended that you use only oil that is manufactured
for use on leather - use baby oil on babies and olive oil in salads,
because thats where they belong.
If you use any type of soap (glycerine or otherwise) make sure
you rinse it o completely. Soap will eventually eat through the
leather just as sweat will, so you’re better o just using water if
you have nothing else. Get rid of the sweat in any case. (ink of
washing your hands - even with glycerine soap, you do rinse it o
completely and then apply a conditioning hand lotion). Beeswax
cream for saddles works very well as a moisturizing conditioner. We
recommend to use oil very sparingly on your saddle and tack, and
only on those parts of the saddle or tack that dont touch you. In
some English saddles, excessive use of oil on the seat will actually
soak through the laminated layers of the trees (most English saddles
are still made using beechwood layers) and loosen the glue to the
extent that your tree may be compromised to the point of breakage.
We recommend a very light oiling only once when your saddle is
new and thereafter to stay with a beeswax conditioning cream to
keep the leather supple and looking new.

Young Jumper Championships
2016 Western Regional
By Jackie McFarland
Photographs by Captured Moment Photography
S
upporting up-and-coming talent is essential for the sport to continue
to thrive and grow, which is why Blenheim EquiSports is pleased
to host the Young Jumper Championships Western League Finals
year after year. By oering fourteen shows with qualifying classes throughout
the season, with no entry fees and discounted stall fees, Blenheim supports
the development of these young jumpers. With a higher number of entries
this year, after a round on ursday, one on Friday and the last one today, plus
jump-os in each division, three Young Jumper champions, ages ve, six and
seven years old, took a victory gallop with a tricolor ribbon, a brand new cooler
and a prize money check.
Course designer for the week, Catsy Cruz of Mexico, was deliberate in her
plan to give the young horses a great learning experience while making each
day slightly higher and wider, with gradual changes.
All the distances are very comfortable. e turns are as well. It is a matter
of following a track, keeping a rhythm. Today I used a liverpool and a triple
combination that they havent seen. Its a little harder, but still keeps the mindset
that it is a learning class for the young horses,” she explained.
Mandy Porter and Camelot BF Capture the Win in the
Five-Year-Old Division
Just as Cruz planned, todays ve-year-old course provided an opportunity
for smooth sailing and 11 of the 19 entries went clean. ose with a score of
zero after three rounds advanced to the jump-o. In this division a total of six
horse and rider combinations were vying for the fourth clear round and the
fastest time to earn the biggest win of their career to date.
e bar was set high right o the bat as Trudi Fletcher navigated Linda
Irvine Smith’s Gee Whiz (KWPN/G/More than Luck – Amerika 7, by Acord
I) through the eight-eort shortened course in 40.20, earning an admirable
quadruple-clear in the championships, and ultimately nished in fourth place.
e pace of the jump-o increased with every trip, starting with Matt Archer
and Rhys Farms, LLC’s Legolas(HOL/G/Larimar – Passina, by Lecantus),
who opted for an inside turn back to the penultimate fence of the shortened
course. e long, soft bend to the nal eort oered room to gallop and Archer
crossed the nish line in 36.16. Also opting for the inside turn and then taking
perhaps even more advantage of the last stretch, Keri Potter and Melanie Brooks’
Jiminy Cricket (WES/G/Colestus – Cindy, by Cornet Obolensky) lowered the
time to beat to 35.77, all the while maintaining the streak of quadruple-clears.
Both the fourth and sixth competitors ran into trouble with faults, but the fth
to go, Mandy Porter and Oak Meadow Ranch, LLC’s Camelot BF (OLD/G/
Contiano BF – Jasnaya BF, by Cristo), soared to the top. Starting strong with a
quick turn from the rst fence to the second, the young horse tripped slightly at
the beginning of the line from the second fence to the third, but Porter helped
maintain his focus. She held a prompt pace and perfected the inside turn. A
loping gallop to the nal fence placed her atop the leaderboard in 35.56.
“I knew going to the last jump that I could just gallop and it would be faster
than it looks because he has such a big stride,” Porter said of the gelding, whom
she’s been working with since February.
She went on to say that showing him this last week as well as in this
championship, with the opportunity to go in the ring several times and not
focus on going fast until the end, has helped him. “He’s really matured in the
last two weeks. In July, this ring scared him and made him nervous. He nally
just relaxed in there and was able to jump how he jumps at home.”
Although Camelot BF is oered for sale, Porter hopes to take him to the
Blenheim Young Jumper Finals later this month, and if possible, would love to
continue to ride the talented Oldenburg gelding.
Christian Heineking and HSS Carrido Claim the Top Prize
in the Six-Year-Olds
Of the seven double-clear horse and rider combinations vying for the Six-
Year-Old title this Sunday, four maintained fault-free scores. An impressive
eleven of twenty horses emerged from all three rounds with four or fewer faults,
proving the quality of the six-year-old championships this year.
Fast moving from the start, rst to go Keri Potter dashed around on Jo Chos
Diabolical (OLD/G/Diarado – Clockwork III, by Carousel) in a clear 40.91.
Olivia Brown and Yennie Folheim Fullers Churchill (HOL/G/Clarimo – Salina
II, by Cardino) followed, nishing with eight faults.
Christian Heineking and Heineking Show Stables’ HSS Carrido (DWB/S/
Carrico – Escudini, by Escudo II)demonstrated two inside turns – one to the
oxer at fence 11 and then again to the vertical-oxer one-stride at 9AB – to take
over the lead, clean in 40.48.
e 2015 Five-Year-Old Champions, Jamie Sailor and Felyn Farms’
Flashdance (HAN/G/For Edition – Virginia II, by Quinar), were last to go.
e pair caught Heineking on the clock but had an unfortunate four faults.
Heineking has a history with this horse and his family. e sire, Carrico,
jumped at Beerbaum Stables in World Cup classes and then got sold here to
the U.S. Two years ago he was in the top 10 in the Hunter Derby Finals. I rode
him as a young horse as well,” he said.
He imported HSS Carrido to the States just last year. “I don’t think I was
the fastest, but we got lucky. It was a young horse class and he hasnt shown a
lot in the States, so I am very happy,” Heineking said. He described the stallion
as “very nice and simple, also naturally very careful.”

Jason McArdle and Fairbanks Valley Farm’s Elicole
Christian Heineking and Heineking Show Stables’ HSS Carrido
Heineking plans to give the champion six-year-old an easy rest of the year
and then gear up for the seven-year-olds at ermal in 2017. HSS Carrido will
likely be available for breeding next spring.
Jason McArdle and Elicole Bring Home the
Seven-Year-Old Title
Ten of nineteen pairs nished the challenging Seven-Year-Old nal with
four faults or less. Just three of the six who came in today with a zero score
made it to the jump-o.
Jason McArdle piloted two of those three. First, he rode Fairbanks Valley
Farms Elicole (KWPN/M/Hamlet – Vicole, by Guidam) to four clear rounds.
Despite a risky distance to fence 15, McArdle galloped through the timers
clean in 38.30.
Mandy Porter returned on Wild Turkey Farm, LLC’s WT Ca-Pow!
(AHHA/G/Chesapeake – Ultima V, by Calato). e pair had the time, 37.80,
but in an attempt to create a better turn to fence 15, she caught it at an angle
and tipped the top rail.
McArdle chose a quieter pace and more conservative track on his second
ride, Fairbanks Valley Farms Elrito(KWPN/G/Zapatero VDL – Zelrite, by
Tenerife VDL). ey completed the shortened course in a fault-free 49.16,
earning the red ribbon.
ough he had opted for a clean, smooth ride earlier on Elrito, McArdle
aimed to set the pace on the speedy Elicole. “In the jump-o, [Elicole] is really
quick. I was trying to go fast enough. I know I left the door open if Mandy
went faster, but then she had a rail,” he said. “It wasn’t my best jump-o, but
today it worked out.”
McArdle has had Elicole since she was a four-year-old. She was the Five-
Year-Old YJC Champion two years ago at Showpark, and has had an extremely
successful season as a seven-year-old. McArdle plans to advance into the
Interactive Mortgage 10 & Under Futurity classes with her next year.
Congratulations to all young horses on their superb showing at the Showpark
All Seasons Tournament. Starting on September 14th, Blenheim EquiSports
moves back to San Juan Capistrano for two consecutive shows to wrap up
their California season, the Blenheim Fall Tournament and the Blenheim

Popular bit types and their effects on horse
welfare. Part 2
By Randi Wilson, Senior at Oregon State University and
Claudia Ingham, Senior Instructor in the Department of Animal and Rangeland Sciences Oregon State University
M
ost of us are familiar with three main types of bits: snaes, curbs,
and combinations. Snae action uses direct pressure, curbs rely
on leverage, and combinations, as the name describes, use both
of these actions.
e curb bit is typically paired with a curb strap that ts snugly under the
horse’s jaw and is attached to the top of the shank. When the rider pulls on the
reins, pressure is applied at the poll and chin. e amount of pressure on the poll
is determined by how snug the curb strap is on the horse’s chin and the length
of the shanks which act as levers. is encourages the horse to lower its head
and ex at the poll. For this reason, curbs are often considered more severe than
snaes and their severity increases with the length of the shank (Duberstein
and Johnson, 2014.) However, longer shanks can increase communication with
the mouth and allow quicker alleviation from pressure if used precisely (Mata et
al., 2015). Many curbs have a port which puts more pressure along the horse’s
bars and soft palate and allows for more tongue release encouraging the horse
to ex more at the poll and lower its head (Duberstein and Johnson, 2014).
Undesired behavior, like mouth opening, can result from excessive pulling on
a bit with a port (Scoggins, 1989). Ports can have disastrous consequences if
used improperly or harshly as seen in a study on Icelandic competition horses
performed by Björnsdóttir and colleagues (2014), a veterinarian and ocer of
horse health and welfare in Iceland. To obtain the ve special gaits of Icelandic
competition horses, the horse needs to maintain high levels of exion at the poll
which has led to increased use of ported bits. ese were not part of traditional
Icelandic curbs. Björnsdóttir and colleagues (2014) examined 45 Icelandic
horses prior to an event and after showed a 23.4% increase in lesions on the bar
region of the mouth due to a ported curb. Horses in the traditional Icelandic
bit showed no sign of bit-induced lesions. Since the tongue is thought to act
as a cushion between the bars and the bit, these researchers hypothesized that
the port takes away that ability and allows the bit to apply more direct pressure
on the bars, thus producing more lesions.
e snae bit is one of the most widely used bits in Europe (Engelke and
Gasse, 2003) and the most commonly accepted bit in competition (Manfredi
et al., 2005). e snae can have a myriad of mouth pieces, though they were
originally single jointed. Today, they can be xed, jointed, double jointed, or
have a solid mouthpiece (Duberstein and Johnson, 2014). Single-jointed snae
bits are said to have a “nut-cracker” eect if much force is applied. Some claim
this can be avoided in double-jointed snaes by adding a separating link.
However, a radiographic study by Manfredi and colleagues (2005) showed
that the tongue absorbs the single-jointed snae bit, cushioning it as the
angle decreases and preventing it from rising into the palate. In some cases, bit
manufacturers have added twists or chains to their mouthpieces (Duberstein
and Johnson, 2014), which arguably increases severity and risk of injury to the
horse’s mouth (Scoggins, 1989).
Some riders will combine the snae with a running martingale, which
increases the amount of leverage the rider has on the reins, but also increases
the chance of bruising if misused (Scoggins, 1989). Björnsdóttir and colleagues
(2014), examined 26 Icelandic horses in snae bits and found the amount
of lesion increased by 4% over the course of the competition. However, the
overall frequency of lesions in the buccal region of the mouth was 62%. In
comparison, only 13% of the horses in the ported curb bit had mouth lesions.
Considering these results, is it correct to assume the snae is the more ethical
and safe choice of bit?
Other types of bits are usually combinations of a curb and a snae. Gag bits
are snaes, usually with a jointed mouthpiece and shanks attached to the snae
ring. is allows for the gag bit to add up to three times the pressure and leverage
of the traditional snae bit (Mata and colleagues, 2015). ese types of bits can
possibly break the lower jaw if enough force is applied (Scoggins, 1989). Gag
bits are commonly used in polo ponies because polo players are required by the
game’s rules to have their horses suitably under control. However, the gag bit
shues the pressure points from the bars to the tongue and the corner of the
mouth, resulting in increased damage to the tongue in the form of lacerations
and sometimes completely severing the tongue (Mata et al., 2015).
e double bridle is the combination of two bits: a curb and a bradoon,
which is a type of snae bit with smaller rings and a thinner mouthpiece.
is is a characteristic tool of high level dressage competition where enhanced
communication with the horse is required for achieving the complex movements.
Double bridles were required by USEF regulations in fourth level dressage
competitions and above but now other options are allowed, like a bridle with a
simple snae (Schoer, 2016). ough some believe the double bridle increases
stress response (McGreevy et al., 2012), many dressage riders nd it an invaluable
tool. Sarah Martin, a United States Dressage Federation (USDF) gold medalist
and certied trainer claims the double bridle is appropriate at high levels when
the tiniest slip of a complicated maneuver could cost the rider points. She also
says the double bridle is great for enhancing communication and catching the
horse before it can become unbalanced (Schoer, 2016).
Recently, new bits have been developed to help relieve stress on the horse and
protect the horse’s welfare. Myler Bits® has broken away from the traditional
snae bits with a myriad of mouthpieces and cheek pieces available. Most of the
mouthpieces have replaced the central link with a roller barrel and the majority
have ports of varying heights and incorporated with forward-curved cannons
(Manfredi and colleagues, 2005). Myler Bits® designs their mouthpieces based
on discipline and training level of the horse. A 2013 study trained dressage
horses using both a traditional snae and a level ⅔ Myler bit with a tongue port
and barrel. When ridden in the Myler, which provided more tongue freedom
and was thinner in diameter, the horses exhibited lower heart rates and less
uctuations in head posture than when ridden in the traditional snae bit.
Tongue color was also visibly dierent between the two treatments, with the
Myler allowing better circulation (Vanderhorst et al., 2013). In Manfredi and
colleagues’ (2005) radiographic study, the Myler bits were best able to remain
in place when rein tension was applied. ey also sank more deeply into the
tongue than the traditional bits, which could indicate relaxation of the oral tissue
and thus comfort in the horse. When tted correctly, they also t closer to the
cheek teeth, which is thought to be the reason the horses had much quieter
mouths when ridden in this bit. e port also allowed more relief for the bars
by pressing against the tongue.
In next issue, learn about the bitless bridle and whether or not the bit is the
root cause of suering.

To address this situation we decided
to make the following changes for
2017.
• We are no longer going to oer
the LAperitif one day recognized
show, since we have been struggling
to make this show nancially viable
for several years.
• The Beaujolais will be
changed to a two day show
scheduled for June 17 and 18,
2017 and no longer include a
DSHB element.
• e Champagne Classic will
be changed to a three day show
scheduled for July 8, 9 and 10,
2017 and including DSHB on
the July 8th. is will allow for
more foals to be old enough to
participate.
• To make Donida Farm a
even better show destination
EI will sponsor the FEI ring
to allow the footing to be
upgraded. is project is being
worked on right now and should
be completed in time for the
2017 show season. We are also
considering making camping
free or greatly reduced.
Some of the other things we
discussed which I will write more
about in the upcoming months are
a Trainers Certication clinic series
with Anne Gribbons and Lilo Fore
to start in 2017 and a social/year end
Presidents Report
By Diana Axness
The 2016 Equestrians Institute
annual meeting will be held on
November 13th at Polestar Farm.
Equestrians Institute members
should have received a postcard in
the U.S. mail mid October. Prior
to the annual meeting, we will be
holding a poker ride and then a light
lunch will be provided. We hope
members will come and enjoy the
social time and opportunity to enjoy
the fabulous Polestar Farm facility.
Entry for the poker ride is required
prior to the event so we will know
how many riders and drivers will be
participating. See the EI website at
www.einw.org for more details. All
EI members are invited to the annual
meeting and no pre-registration is
required. We thank Meika Decher
for graciously hosting us at Polestar
Farm.
Dressage Report
e EI Dressage Committee met
on October 1st to review the 2016
events and plan for 2017. On the plus
side, all of our events were well run
and we had a lot of positive feedback
from competitors and show ocials.
On the negative, attendance was
down almost 40% which resulted in
all of our recognized shows losing
money. e decrease in attendance
was probably mostly due to increased
competition from other show venues.

EI Driving has successfully (nally!)
wrapped up our driving season for
2016 with the very fun, very casual
Driving Play Day a couple of weeks
ago at the amazing Ethel Events
Center in SW Washington.
A small army of kind souls came
to help us clean and store our gear
for the winter. All of our hundreds of
100 www.einw.org november 2016
rails, letters, cones and numbers were
all cheerfully washed, waxed, dried
and tucked away inside their happy
trailer-home, cleaned of all the grass,
spiders, mud and even pee stains of
one very determined pooch. At our
invitation, several folks that brought
horses stayed aer that to drive and
school for the day. ank you to all our
fantastic drivers, volunteers, friends
and family that came to help. We are
very grateful for you!
The Year End Driving Awards
results will be posted on our website
soon. en in January, we will have
our traditional EI Driving Year End
Awards ceremony with optional
White Elephant gi exchange. Check

ODS President’s Note:
Greetings to everyone, as the fall
approaches and we gear down from the show
season you will be happy to know that show
managers and show secretaries are again
planning a busy year for you next year. is
past year though proved to be a struggle for
those of us that organize shows. Two of the
shows I put on I came close to canceling
because up to the closing date there were
not enough entries. I am not sure why we’ve
made the change from - if you wanted to get
into a show your entry had to be there on
the opening day to… I’ll wait until closing
date to send it in.
In 2015 the ODS League Championship
show returned with a new name, the “ODS
Finals” and was a successful show. is year
on closing date I had 28 rides for 2 days.
To break even the show needed at least 50
rides a day. In 2016, 413 riders competed
at League shows of which 245 riders were
ODS members. is should have been a large
enough pool of riders to have a successful
League Finals show. I am not sure what
happened or why but a survey went out to
these riders to determine if there is a need
for the League Finals or if this year was just
an o year all the way around.
On another topic, I thought I would spend
some time discussing just what happens at
the board level. When I rst became involved
at the board level I remember sitting in
a chapter meeting and have the question
asked, just what does ODS do for us? I
know this question continues to be asked.
In most organizations I feel the fact that
board members sit on the board to represent
your interests and make sure things are done
to protect your nonprot status would be
enough, but we don’t just stop there. Your
board is very active. ODS is the third largest
Group Member Organizations of the United
States Dressage Federation. We have led the
way with programs that have been modeled
after on the national level. Here are some of
the things that are managed at the “Board
Level”:
e ODS Youth Program which include
the USDF Region/ODS 6 Jr/YR team
Competition, the USDF Region 6/ODS
Youth Camp, The ODS High School
Program, e ODS/Pony Club combined
show (becoming a model for cooperation of
dressage clubs and Pony clubs). Members
are also active with 4-H and OHSET
out reach. e program also manages the
Winnie Heiney Duncan Scholarship, Pony
Power Scholarship and the Barbara Page
Scholarship as well as the High School
college scholarship program for which since
2006 over $13,000.00 have been awarded
to our High School team riders going on
to college.
e Adult programs which includes the
Adult Team Competition. When new tests
come out, ODS organizes the “Intro to the
Tests.” is committee helps to manage
the Connie J. Keith Adult Amateur Camp
Grants, helps put together demo riders for
public expositions such as at the NW Horse
Fair and is currently organizing an upcoming
“L” Education Program. e USDF “L”
program is run at the board level as well as
the Instructor/trainer program. ese two
programs enhance the quality of our dressage
experience through education and providing
an opportunity to local people to become “L”
graduates (can’t say judge). ese programs
are open for all to attend and learn and are
a great educational event.
e Board is also responsible for the
organization and running of the ODS
Championship Show, the ODS League
Finals.
e Awards program; the League Show

awards, the licensed show awards, special
awards, dressage/sporthorse breed division
awards, the Dressage Horse Hall of Fame.
Combining all the show results to produce
these awards take a great deal of time and a
board member does that for you.
Although it has been scaled down, we hope
that you will join us at this year’s Fall Annual
Meeting and Awards Reception with Silent
Auction which is another board-oered
and organized function. ere will be wine
for sale, light appetizers and enough time
to socialize and catch up with your friends
outside of the barn. Please visit the ODS
website or contact chair Ed Miller for details.
I am sure that there is plenty more that
the board does for the membership, but I
think/hope that I have helped to shed light
on the major areas and roles. We take our
responsibility seriously and have to consider
non-prot laws, USDF and USEF rules in
helping guide our activities.
Although you may expect a large pool
of people involved to get the above tasks
accomplished, your board consists of
elected four regional representatives as well
as six Director at Large members. ese
10 members plus our part-time oce sta
person make sure all of the above gets done.
Now, I would like to ask, how many other
organizations with only 10 members would
be able to accomplish this year in and year
out? I’m proud, grateful and thankful for the
volunteer service of our board members and
for the time and energy Corinne invests in
our organization.

OFFICE NOTES
ODS Championship Show Committee
Chair Wanted:
Would you like to help coordinate by
organizing the movers and shakers of the
Oregon Dressage Society’s Championship
Show Committee? Our manager wants to
separate duties so that she can focus on the
competitor experience and so ODS is looking
for a volunteer with excellent communication
and organizational skills who wants to help
with the largest annual fundraiser ODS
officers. No actual show management
experience necessary – the committee chair
would be the conduit between the ODS
Board and the Committee and be there to
help committee members with their tasks
and deadlines. While it is helpful to attend
ODS board meetings/board conference calls,
written reports can be turned in. Apply by
emailing the ODS president your interest.

Please watch your ODS broadcast
e-mails for an announcement that will
contain instructions about procedures
as well as a link to the list of 2016 ODS
Rider Awards winners for both ODS
League and ODS Licensed awards plates.
e date will be based upon timing of
receipt of results and reports from show
secretaries and from USDF but should be
sometime this month. League plates will
be sent automatically to riders who earn
them (paid by “participation fees”); due to
the USEF rule change several years ago,
Licensed plates will need to be ordered
and paid for by riders. We are asking for
every rider to please review their horse’s
name for accuracy (spelling, missing parts,
etc.), and to audit the number of scores
listed against your actual tests. We will
need to have award corrections phoned
or emailed to ODS award coordinators
by a deadline which will be specied in
the broadcast e-mail.
Insurance for Chapter and Committee
Activities:
Every event that involves horses hosted
by your chapter or committee must have
an insurance application submitted.
Reminder that we are submitting our
insurance applications to our agent only
once a month, on the second Tuesday;
if we submit more than once a month,
we are subject to additional processing
fees. e correct application to use is an
active PDF which you can type in before
printing – posted online. Please make
every attempt to type it out because it
helps reduce errors due to trying to read
handwriting. Do not use applications
saved in your computer as older versions
are now obsolete. Please review our
website insurance page as it contains
forms in regards to insurance including a
general ODS waiver, a volunteer waiver,
an accident form, vendors with current
liability on le and more.

Twin Rivers
Twin Rivers has had a busy summer with our
annual League Show in July and our Adult
Camp. Both of these events were held at
a wonderful facility in Creswell, Silvertail
Farm, owned by Laura Park.
e league show was well attended and a
good time was had by all. Several of our
members entered the show as well as riders
from afar. Suzanne Ronning did an excellent
job as judge, even though it rained that day.
e rain didn’t dampen our spirits.
TRC’s Adult Camp was held from September
29th until October 2nd with Heather Oleson
and Nicki Grandia as clinicians. e camp
was held at Silvertail Farm and Sport Horse
Farm. Jaimie Lewellyn was the coordinator
for the camp and did an outstanding job
of organization. Sally Temple, with help
from many, took care of the food for the
hungry riders. We’re all looking forward
to another camp next year. Laura Park, the
owner of Silvertail, was an amazing help
with everything.
e 2016 USDF Regional GMO Volunteer

Lewellyn. Congratulations Jaimie - well-
deserved!
We’re holding elections in October, along
with making some plans for our annual
Christmas/New Year’s party. We are
planning to have Heather Oleson back for
a clinic soon to help keep us in shape during
the colder winter. TRC wishes you a happy
fall season.

This is a great time to join Pony Club!
Here are just a few of the activities
going on in Pony Club this fall.
Show Jumping Rally
74 competitors, representing every
club in our region, participated in this
year’s Show Jumping Rally. A rally is
a Pony Club show that incorporates
riding like a traditional show, but also
horse management education and
competition. Participants are evaluated
on their ability to demonstrate correct
and effective stable management skills
in addition to riding prociency.
Equine Digestive Seminar
A nutrition and digestion expert gave
a presentation on what is important
in equine feed and how the digestive
system works.
Clipping Demonstration and Practice
Hands-on demonstration to learn how
and when to clip your horse, including
how to prep, what equipment to use,
and how to make it enjoyable for both
you and your horse.
Halloween Mounted Games Party
The region hosted a mounted games
party, including games-on-foot for
those without a mount, and games-
on-horseback for those who brought
a horse. It was followed by a costume
contest and potluck. Fun for all!
Bandaging
Do you know how to apply a stable
bandage? In what circumstances should
you use it? How do you wrap it with
correct pressure? How often should it be
changed? Members learned all this and
more at an unmounted meeting about
leg bandaging, including practice under
the watchful eye of an experienced
instructor.
Dissection
Pony Club members had the
opportunity to dissect parts of a cadaver
horse under the guidance of a local
veterinarian. This was very informative
and always a favorite activity.
A Great Year Planned for 2017
We have a full year of great activities
planned for 2017! Opportunities abound
for mounted and unmounted activities
for riders of all levels. You don’t need
to own your own horse or pony!
In 2017, Oregon Region Pony
Club will be holding rallies in Quiz
(unmounted knowledge competition),
Eventing, Dressage, Tetrathlon, and
Show Jumping. We will host a fabulous
summer camp that promises to be
full of great riding and fun with Pony
Club friends. We are planning several
clinic and certication opportunities.
We will send a large contingent of
enthusiastic competitors to Pony Club
national Championships in Lexington,
Kentucky. We are sending club leaders,
parents, and members to the Pony Club
Equine Symposium in Los Angeles.
And every local club will host mounted
and unmounted activities throughout
the year.
Pony Club is not just for kids!
Adult members of Pony Club are
called “Horsemasters” and participate
alongside youth members. We have
Horsemasters of all ages and abilities,
from complete beginners, to seasoned
experts, to parents who were in Pony
Club as youth and now are getting back
into it with their children.
If this sounds like fun, send us an
email at oregonregionboard@gmail.
com or visit Oregon.ponyclub.org. We
will put you in touch with several clubs

WHC Celebrates Its 90th Year Opening
Meet and 56th Year Hunter Trials
It’s been three years since JBLM
demanded we clear the entire Hunter Trials
eld of its jumps. at could have been the
end of a wonderful tradition! But instead
Woodbrookers rose to the challenge and
worked together each fall to build a beautiful
one-day derby style course that just makes
you want to saddle up and jump it!
Many said this years course was the best
yet thanks to Jt. MFH Tami Masters for the
great design, Cathy Elledge for organizing
all the festivities, and the many members
who helped with both set up and tear down!

WHC 90th Anniversary Opening Day
Hunt – A Hunting Diary Entry By
Huntsman Jennifer Hansen
At 11 am on Sunday following the
Hunter Trials, a large group of excited
riders and eager horses gathered in front of
the clubhouse, all ready for the days sport.
As I survey the crowd it’s interesting to me
to note those who I have shared summer
activities with, those who I have not seen
since the Closing Hunt, and those who are
here to experience their very rst hunt! e
horses who have seen opening day many
times before and the horses who are anxious
because of the unknown. e excitement on
Oliver’s (my nephews) face as he realized he
gets to go hunting from the truck again! e
horses, hounds, and three year olds all sense
the importance of Opening Day!
I’ve asked our fox (or layer of the drag
scent the foxhounds follow) Tami to lay
our rst line and I’ve given her the Mallard
Wetland as her covert. I’ve promised her I’ll
hack there and keep the hounds and eld
from crossing the gravel mainline RD. I hack
hounds down the Log Center fence and cast
from the corner at the base of McCaw Hill.
Hounds eagerly go in and start working the
soft moist soil. eir song gets going and
soon we are o! ey all hit the grassy trail
with the railroad ties together. ey bust
across the next road but soon pull up and
check themselves, voiceless hounds try back
and start down the road they had blown
across. I sit still and watch, not wanting to
disturb scent.
A short distance down the road they burst
into the left and are again in full cry. e
eld with me, we canter on a lovely wide
trail and can hear hounds just to our right.
At the next intersection, we stop and hounds
blow out in front of us, and we watch as they
work out which way the fox (Tami) went and
very quickly we are o again! Upon view
of the hunter trials eld the hounds ran
the line as it was laid and eventually found
the” lure” and “worry”( a treat lled bag as
a reward to the hounds for nding the end
of the dradline) under the big r tree at the
far corner of the eld. e car caravan had
made to the eld in time to watch and the
hilltoppers were close behind us a thrilling
start to our rst hunt of the year!

Later in the day we adventured into
virgin territory, my mom transported the
foxes Simon Chapman and Eric Stiemert,
while we hacked down Transmission Line
Rd and went into the woods behind the
old ASP. Papa fox (Eric Stiemert spent his
Saturday scouting and marking and making
sure the eld could get through this part of
our country. I had both ridden and walked
the area, but today we would enter from
yet a dierent way, from a lovely grass road
without much scotch broom. Soon we were
deep in the moss covered forest and hounds
were singing and it was all I could do to stay
up with them!
With the eld right behind me, we
were able to watch the hounds work the
topography and lose and nd the scent,
working and running as a pack together.
e best way through for the horses was
thankfully marked by surveyor tape, and
we eventually broke out of the woods to the
mainline gravel road through 7S, the car
caravan to my right and hounds in frenzy
ahead of me where the lure was hanging
from a tree!
It was a good day for all, hounds were
satised, the rst ight eld got to both
gallop and view hounds with the second
ight on their heels, the hilltoppers and car
caravan both enjoyed great views, and after a
happy check we all started our hack toward
home and a wonderful hot Hunt Breakfast

Young Rider Report
As many of our Young Rider members go o to
college or are planning their future, the decision
always comes up with should they take their horse
with them or not. e decision becomes a little
easier if the college of choice has an equestrian
program and especially if the program has eventing
as their focus.
In 2014, the United States Eventing
Association (USEA) approved the creation
of the Intercollegiate Eventing Program as an
ocial program of the USEA. e program was
established to provide a framework on which
eventing teams and individual competition could
ourish at universities and colleges across the
country. Collegiate athletic programs have been
the training grounds for Olympians, amateur
athletes and professional athletes for generations.
Enabling college students to train in the Olympic
sport of eventing is a natural addition.
Intercollegiate Team Challenges are quickly
becoming popular additions to recognized horse
trials in the United States. Teams competing
in events identied as Intercollegiate Team
Challenges are able to self-identify to the
competition organizer, and will compete in the
regular horse trial competition as individuals.
Combining their individual scores, their team
scores will be tabulated and matched against other
teams. Currently, 23 schools compete in USEAs
Intercollegiate Eventing Program.
e following was written by Chanelle Baer, an
Area VII Young Rider who is attending college
at Oregon State University as well as a member
of the OSU Equestrian Event Team.
The OSU Equestrian Event Team is an
intercollegiate, competitive team composed of
OSU students. Both aliated with Oregon State
and USEA, the team is composed of members who
strive to continue their equestrian pursuits while
in college—something that many students have
diculties with. e Event Team allows students
a unique experience; with aordable training with
head coach Brooke Phillips, a discounted USEA
membership fee, a diverse group of students to
share experiences with, and the ability to raise
funds to go towards shows, our mission is to allow
students a fun and inexpensive way to continue
their three-day event training. Overall, our team
goals are to facilitate a great place for students to
continue their passions as well as allow students to
continue to be competitive. Our team has grown
signicantly over the years and we currently have
around twenty members, ranging from intro level
riders to preliminary competitors.
While members are not required to compete,
our goal is to make competing more easily
accomplished and aordable. USEA has a unique
program which facilitates competitions between
colleges. ere are intercollegiate competitions
held at Woodside as well as Twin Rivers, and we
are hoping to have these competitions expand to
venues in the pacic northwest. ere is also a
championship competition held in Virginia which
allows colleges to send members competing from
beginner novice through advanced, as well as 1*
and 2* competitions.
Along with being active members of the OSU
Event Team, many members are also active Young
Riders with competitive goals. e Young Rider
program and OSU Event Team complement each
other in many ways, as both fuel a positive and fun
CLUB NEWS
lled environment where riders can come together
to ride their horses and achieve their goals.
So as you think about your future college plans
the decision to take or not take your horse will
be easier made if your college of choice has an
Eventing program!
Have a great Ride!
