OSPHOS clodronate injection Bisphosphonate For use in horses only Brief Summary For Full Prescribing Information see package insert CAUTION Federal USA law restricts this drug to use by or on the order of a licensed veterinarian DESCRIPTION Clodronate disodium is a non amino chlorocontaining bisphosphonate Chemically clodronate disodium is dichloromethylene diphosphonic acid disodium salt and is manufactured from the tetrahydrate form INDICATION For the control of clinical signs associated with navicular syndrome in horses CONTRAINDICATIONS Horses with hypersensitivity to clodronate disodium should not receive OSPHOS WARNINGS Do not use in horses intended for human consumption HUMAN WARNINGS Not for human use Keep this and all drugs out of the reach of children Consult a physician in case of accidental human exposure PRECAUTIONS As a class bisphosphonates may be associated with gastrointestinal and renal toxicity Sensitivity to drug associated adverse reactions varies with the individual patient Renal and gastrointestinal adverse reactions may be associated with plasma concentrations of the drug Bisphosphonates are excreted by the kidney therefore conditions causing renal impairment may increase plasma bisphosphonate concentrations resulting in an increased risk for adverse reactions Concurrent administration of other potentially nephrotoxic drugs should be approached with caution and renal function should be monitored Use of bisphosphonates in patients with conditions or diseases affecting renal function is not recommended Administration of bisphosphonates has been associated with abdominal pain colic discomfort and agitation in horses Clinical signs usually occur shortly after drug administration and may be associated with alterations in intestinal motility In horses treated with OSPHOS these clinical signs usually began within 2 hours of treatment Horses should be monitored for at least 2 hours following administration of OSPHOS Easily Administered OSPHOS controls the clinical signs associated with Navicular Syndrome via intramuscular injection Well Tolerated in clinical trials Proven Efficacy at 6 months post treatment No Reconstitution Required Learn more online www dechra us com www osphos com As with all drugs side effects may occur In field studies the most common side effects reported were signs of discomfort or nervousness colic and or pawing OSPHOS should not be used in pregnant or lactating mares or mares intended for breeding Use of OSPHOS in patients with conditions affecting renal function or mineral or electrolyte homeostasis is not recommended Refer to the prescribing information for complete details or visit www dechra us com or call 866 933 2472 CAUTION Federal law restricts this drug to use by or on the order of licensed veterinarian Freedom of Information Summary Original New Animal Drug Application NADA 141 427 for OSPHOS April 28 2014 Dechra Veterinary Products US and the Dechra D logo are registered trademarks of Dechra Pharmaceuticals PLC 2016 Dechra Ltd Bisphosphonates affect plasma concentrations of some minerals and electrolytes such as calcium magnesium and potassium immediately post treatment with effects lasting up to several hours Caution should be used when administering bisphosphonates to horses with conditions affecting mineral or electrolyte homeostasis e g hyperkalemic periodic paralysis hypocalcemia etc The safe use of OSPHOS has not been evaluated in horses less than 4 years of age The effect of bisphosphonates on the skeleton of growing horses has not been studied however bisphosphonates inhibit osteoclast activity which impacts bone turnover and may affect bone growth Bisphosphonates should not be used in pregnant or lactating mares or mares intended for breeding The safe use of OSPHOS has not been evaluated in breeding horses or pregnant or lactating mares Bisphosphonates are incorporated into the bone matrix from where they are gradually released over periods of months to years The extent of bisphosphonate incorporation into adult bone and hence the amount available for release back into the systemic circulation is directly related to the total dose and duration of bisphosphonate use Bisphosphonates have been shown to cause fetal developmental abnormalities in laboratory animals The uptake of bisphosphonates into fetal bone may be greater than into maternal bone creating a possible risk for skeletal or other abnormalities in the fetus Many drugs including bisphosphonates may be excreted in milk and may be absorbed by nursing animals Increased bone fragility has been observed in animals treated with bisphosphonates at high doses or for long periods of time Bisphosphonates inhibit bone resorption and decrease bone turnover which may lead to an inability to repair micro damage within the bone In humans atypical femur fractures have been reported in patients on long term bisphosphonate therapy however a causal relationship has not been established ADVERSE REACTIONS The most common adverse reactions reported in the field study were clinical signs of discomfort or nervousness colic and or pawing Other signs reported were lip licking yawning head shaking injection site swelling and hives pruritus Distributed by Dechra Veterinary Products 7015 College Boulevard Suite 525 Overland Park KS 66211 866

O 3 Minute Tip of the Month The Small Intestine Meredith Kahn MS The small intestine has a relatively small capacity and as such feedstuffs move rapidly through this part of the system Feeds that are high in quality and calories rely mainly on the small intestine for digestion and absorption For example non soluble carbohydrate grains are ideally digested in the small intestine as they are treated completely different when they reach the large intestine Protein can be broken down in the large intestine but is not absorbed at this part of the digestive tract Therefore when adding these kinds of feedstuffs to the diet we need to be aware of how the small intestine works so that we can choose a realistic diet that does not overwhelm our horse s system The small intestine can be divided into three main sections moving from the stomach to the large intestine the duodenum the jejunum and the ileum Digestion takes place via two different mechanisms depending on the type of feedstuff being digested Enzymes from the pancreas and the brush border work to catalyze reactions or break down large carbohydrate and protein molecules into smaller absorbable ones Bile is secreted directly from the liver and works by emulsifying large fat globules While the horse s system is designed to digest and absorb structural carbohydrate the digestive mechanisms in the small intestine cannot touch any fibrous feedstuffs Grain and grass are both large carbohydrate molecules composed of long chains of glucose molecules So why can grain be broken down in the small intestine and grass passes through untouched The individual glucose molecules that comprise a structural carbohydrate molecule and a non structural carbohydrate molecule are bonded together differently The digestive mechanisms in the small intestine can break the bonds between glucose molecules in non structural carbohydrate but are unable to do so for structural carbohydrate Therefore although these two molecule types of may seem very similar the way in which they are digested is completely different FYI Fat is ideally digested and absorbed in the small intestine Fat digestion is different than carbohydrate and protein digestion as you might suspect because fat is generally hydrophobic or water hating So how does this work with the digestive tract being an aqueous environment In short bile works to break up large fat globules into smaller more manageable droplets that are broken down and arranged into a spherical molecule called a micelle Micelles are then absorbed into the epithelial cell layer that lines the digestive tract where further digestive processes take place Fat is ultimately moved out of the cell into the lacteal system where it intercepts with general circulation and transportation to the liver Questions kathleen o3animalhealth com 8 Your Sport Your News Your Business March 2017

Christen Tuxworth Instills Versatility in her Horses Amateur Rider Profile By Barbara Pinnella Christen Tuxworth and Santiano A mateur rider Christen Tuxworth lives in beautiful Colorado Springs and for the past six or seven years has been riding with Laurie Jueneman of Snowfield Farm As they have in the past Snowfield Farm made the drive from Colorado to Thermal this year for the first two weeks of the HITS Coachella circuit Making the trip proved to be a great decision for Christen The first week she and her lovely seven year old Santiano or Sunny as he is known in the barn garnered the Championship in the Desert Adult Hunter 2 9 division and were Reserve the following week That was a great accomplishment particularly when you consider she has only had Santiano since October and rode very little before heading for Thermal I bought him from Gavin Moylan Christen told us Unfortunately he got to Colorado in minus temperatures with snow falling everywhere He had just come from Tyron and the poor little guy was shell shocked with the freezing cold weather so I wasn t sure what I was going to have when we got to Thermal But he got there and he was such a good boy so it was a matter of just getting to learn about him a little bit I hadn t done much showing in the last two years but he was great He s kind of a workmanlike guy in the show ring I stayed in the 2 9 division because I really hadn t gotten to ride him very much and hardly any courses so I just wanted both of us to have a good experience Christen has always been curious about the breeding of those horses that are successful She has always had young horses coming up so looks for those winning bloodlines She also loves 28 to just sit at the shows and watch whether it is the show ring itself or watching other trainers schooling their horses and clients I am a very hands on amateur and I am used to taking care of my horses 24 7 doing all the grooming all the trailering and doing a lot of the training myself I like a versatile horse that likes to do lots of different things and they must be amateur proof They have to jump in the trailer with one person by themselves do a little dressage a little bit of hunters and a lot of trail rides Horses aren t a machine to me it s a partnership and a bond You can t get that from just riding around in the ring The trail rides are very relaxing for me and there are so many beautiful places to ride here But Christen s hands on attitude had to change a bit when she and her husband made the decision to make a move I had my own farm for 17 years But my husband and I decided that it had been a lot of work for all those years and he wanted to move back into town and I understood that So I moved the horses I had up to Laurie s we sold our little farmette and bought a place in town And the transition had been a bit hard for me Christen admitted going from my own place to a boarding facility Laurie does encourage the trail rides or we will haul out to another place to ride but I don t get to do it as much as I used to Christen is looking forward to the summer shows back home in Colorado with Santiano and moving him up the ladder along the way We wish Christen and her darling horse good luck YOUR NEWS YOUR SPORT YOUR BUSINESS March April 2017

Teff as a viable forage source for horses By Natalie Shaw L Teff Grass et me tell you a story A story about my friend Nancy and her horse Marquee One day Marquee an arabmorgan cross showed up lame and a trip to the veterinary clinic was made The veterinarian diagnosed Marquee with a severe case of laminitis as a possible result of insulin resistance The veterinarian suggested that Nancy do two things decrease Marquee s weight and lower the total non structural carbohydrates in the diet With this is mind Nancy went home put Marquee back at pasture went to her computer and consulted Dr Google Dr Google had a lot to say about feeding insulin resistant horses Every blog and website suggested that she feed less than 10 NSC in the diet soak her hay and use a slow feeder Next Nancy went to her local feed store and was happy to find that there were many low carb options Since they weren t close to the less than 10 standard she purchased one of them and diluted it with beet pulp and alfalfa pellets Now feeling good about this she called up her local hay dealer and was stymied to find that he had never put up or marketed a bale of low carb hay in his career and neither had his neighbors She searched high and low for low carb hay paid for carb testings on multiple lots and never found anything that was packaged in two string bales This is where the frustration set in She would have to just make due soaking the hay that she had already bought and stored in the barn Balancing the total ration for a horse that requires BOTH a low carb and low calorie diet is much easier said than done Here is a list of horses that could need forage based diets low in BOTH calories and carbs Equine Metabolic Syndrome Cushings Insulin Resistance Laminitis or at risk PSSM Allergies to other forages Chronic colic 54 Nancy s story is not unique Many of you readers can relate all too well to Nancy s dilemma feeding an easy keeper with sugarstarch sensitivities Over the course of my 9 years traveling the Pacific Northwest as the Equine Nutrition Consultant for CHS I have found this type of horse to be the most difficult to consult for because the nutrition tools available are few and suboptimal Let s be fair the term easy keeper is a misnomer Horses with good feed efficiency are often the horses that require the most creativity We must consider our management techniques constraints and preferences very carefully Of course if you board one of these horses and don t have complete control of their diet you re at an even greater disadvantage Many facilities can t accommodate multiple types of hay or hay soaking due to the additional labor and mess it creates Many years ago I was introduced to teff hay by a PhD equine nutritionist from California I started looking into the grass as an option for these difficult cases Inspired by teff s potential to satisfy this very pressing niche in the equine nutrition industry I set out to bring the power of teff to more horse owners in the Northwest in a form that was available all year long affordable and palatable In 2015 I embarked on a Master s degree with the WSU forage agronomist to study the growing and harvesting factors that influence the non structural carbohydrate values of teff hay My research objective is to refine the farming practices necessary to make teff a viable consistent forage source in the market Let me take a moment to explain exactly what teff grass is and why it can be such a unique tool for horses that require low carb and low calorie diets Teff grass is originally from equatorial Ethiopia Africa where it is the staple grain of the region It is what plant biologists refer to as a warm season C4 grass species This is important to remember because it means that the plant is fundamentally different than the cool season C3 grasses that we are used to feeding horses and that we are really good at growing in the Northwest Timothy orchardgrass bluegrass and rye www OmahaWorldCup2017 com March April 2017
Teff as a viable forage source for horses. By Natalie Shaw  L  Teff Grass  et me tell you a story. A story about my friend...
grasses are cool season If you drove past a field of teff grass you probably wouldn t distinguish it from any other grass hay but it is unique in the way that it metabolizes and stores carbohydrates You see teff grass is an annual plant This means that farmers have to plant it every year It also means that the plant doesn t prioritize storing excess carbohydrates for over wintering Cool season grasses must store carbohydrates for energy in the form of fructans Warm season grasses store some carbohydrates as starch For this reason and others if we were presented with a pile of teff hay a pile of timothy hay and a pile of orchardgrass hay we d put our money on the teff to be lower in non structural carbohydrates Now this is not ALWAYS the case I ve certainly come across my fair share of high carb teff but on average we can grow teff to be lower in simple sugars and starch compared to other grasses Pretty cool huh Another important point to remember low carb does NOT mean low calorie Teff grass can be harvested to have both low caloric value or high caloric value In my teff research protein values have ranged from 5 to 22 So as you seek out teff don t assume that all teff is created equal Low carb and low calorie teff grass hay is immensely difficult to find Especially when you consider the extreme variability in carbohydrates and protein the need for convenient packaging i e small bales and the potential for weeds and poor palatability Because of these difficulties I m very excited to have introduced the Equis Teff Natural to the market in 2016 After many years of development the formula has been tested and perfected Horse owners with easy keepers at risk for laminitis can rest assured that the Equis Feed has taken the headache out of sourcing an appropriate forage option Equis Teff Natural is the only grass hay based low carb and low calorie complete feed on the market Here are three things you must know about Equis Teff Natural 1 It is very low calorie so don t feed to skinny horses At only 1 Megacalorie per pound Equis Teff Natural is like celery sticks for the easy keeper There is no added fat add your own omega 3 source and no added molasses The vast majority of low carb products at your local feed store are very high calorie with digestible fiber sources and added fat This is why Equis Teff Natural is so incredibly unique 2 At 22 fiber it is a forage replacer Equis Teff Natural was Bailing Teff March April 2017 specifically designed as a tool to replace suboptimal forages For example when you purchase a barn full of hay and later find out that it s very high carb Or perhaps you board at a facility that won t allow you to bring in another forage source Replace your suboptimal or poor quality hay pound for pound with Equis Teff Natural at an amount appropriate to the severity of disease your current forage options your financial constraints and to what degree you want to control the diet It is very safe to feed when fed as directed 3 This is so much more than hay in a bag Equis Teff Natural is a complete feed fully fortified to balance protein energy vitamins and minerals when fed as intended It s been suggested to me more than once to just grind up teff hay and sell it at a simple hay pellet This is a HORRIBLE idea Remember what I said about the plant s variability I ve analyzed literally hundreds and hundreds of teff samples and I will tell you that you don t want to leave the nutrient content to chance We ve balanced the proprietary blend of teff grass with the highest quality protein source and the entire Equis Feed package i e Zinpro Performance Minerals organic selenium BioMOS and Diamond V Yeast Culture to produce a feed that is safe consistent and palatable bag after bag and year after year Feeding easy keepers with sugar starch sensitivities is very difficult in practice It is also difficult to understand the complexity of carbohydrates as one nutrient in the horse s total diet Carbohydrates are an extremely diverse array of molecules ranging from table sugar to tree bark To make matters worse the jargon used to express carbohydrate values are confusing and often conflicting When trying to unravel the carb mysteries it helps to realize that the way a plant biologist an analytical chemist and an animal nutritionist talks about carbohydrates are all different The archaic tests we have to analyze plant carbohydrate values WSC ESC and Starch do not neatly line up with the way they are digested or the way that we categorize them If you need help understanding carbohydrate values and what they mean to your horse contact Natalie Shaw at Natalie shaw chsinc com or 406599 7694 For more information on the Equis Teff Natural go to www equisfeed com and check out our blog articles about the product Happy Feeding Teff Natural www OmahaWorldCup2017 com 55

Morgan Thomas On The Right Track by Corie Townsend Morgan and Nora at Parkside Stables with Norgan Inc s August Feb 2017 Photo by Dave Walter M organ Thomas began working at Parkside Stables right out of high school Even as he was completing his undergraduate degree Morgan was riding and teaching whenever possible fostering his passion for horses and solidifying his place in the industry After graduating from the University of British Columbia he began building a career developing and selling hunters showing on the East Coast whenever possible Wanting to further envelope himself in the equestrian world Morgan left the Pacific Northwest in 2001 accepting a job offer at a stable in Virginia and expanding his resume with a string of winning horses and clients He traveled up and down the East Coast becoming champion rider and or trainer at all the major indoor shows including Harrisburg The National Horse Show Devon and Capital Challenge In 2013 Morgan received a call from Vicki Bergevin owner of Parkside Stables asking if he was interested in returning to Bellevue Washington to fill the recently vacated trainer position Both Morgan and Nora loved the area but it was a big decision At first they looked at it as a transitionary role I initially said to Vicki I can probably help out on an interim basis but we realized it was a great opportunity and I realized how great it would be to raise my kids here We each did a weekend clinic and we both really liked it here They had a wonderful client base His show schedule ultimately introduced him to his wife Nora with whom he formed Norgan Inc a partnership that focuses on the purchase development and resale of talented horses They spent half of their year training and competing in Florida and the other half of their year traveling to and from their homebase outside of Minneapolis Minnesota Their client business was on the small side but Norgan Inc was booming turning out horses such as Absolut Nairobi Abundance and Savant to name a few Now entering their fourth year at Parkside Stables that next generation is racking up success after success in and out of the show ring For someone who built a very successful career on riding and developing talented horses Morgan s shift toward teaching may seem surprising For Morgan however it feels like the next step Back East I regarded myself as a rider more than anything else and now I regard myself as more of a trainer than anything else And I m really liking that role 56 So in 2014 Norgan Inc accompanied by their talented assistant trainer Tory Bova moved to the Pacific Northwest where they began shifting their focus toward cultivating talent in the next generation of riders YOUR NEWS YOUR SPORT YOUR BUSINESS March 2017

For Morgan having his Parksiders perform at the National level is meaningful for a number of reasons It just proves that you can do well no matter where you are if you re mounted right and the program is right So on a personal level it was really validating for me to go to Capital Challenge this year after taking a couple year hiatus and doing so well It affirmed that we re on the right track When asked about the momentum behind the success Morgan emphasizes the tremendous impact that his wife has had on his and on Parkside s success Nora does so much of the heavy lifting teaching she s in the trenches with me I couldn t do this without Nora I m definitely better because of her Parkside is better because it has Morgan and Nora After decades of experience riding and training at the top level Morgan s philosophy on teaching is based on finding a balance between augmenting the natural talent of his riders reaching goals and helping them set reasonable expectations Managing these kids and their confidence level is just as important as the training itself even if you re not having Herculean successes you re not having catastrophic failures the kids have to be so solid in their system and their confidence that they feel in their worst day that they are just fine And on their best day the magic can happen The focus at Parkside is to impart confidence balance and a solid foundation on each rider giving them a chance to shine as brightly as they can From one coast to the other and back again Morgan Thomas is finding ways to continue to give back to the community what he has been given and what he has earned over the years I d just love to finish my career in this setting There s something kind of beautiful about starting and finishing in this barn To all the horses and riders at Parkside we wish you a wonderful successful 2017 Morgan with Grace Pearson and Highland Horses LLC s Cambiaso at Capital Challenge October 2016 Photo by Dave Walter Winning the Thunderbird Foxstone USHJA International Hunter Derby with Allison Talbot s Moonrise Kingdom August 2014 Photo by Robert Fries Morgan and Nora preparing amateur Jill Todd and Chacco Gold for their round at Thunderbird Fort Festival August 2016 Photo by Robert Fries 58 YOUR NEWS YOUR SPORT YOUR BUSINESS March 2017

Simple Steps to Avoid Unnecessary Doping Charges Avoiding the Foreseeable By Armand Leone Leone Equestrian Law T oday s competition horses are under constant scrutiny to avoid even perceptions of doping and training abuses by competition officials and the public The inability of a horse to protect itself from unscrupulous practices makes strict oversight of training and competition mandatory This can create an adversarial atmosphere between riders trainers stewards and equestrian regulatory bodies Positive tests for forbidden substances degrade the athlete the horse and our sport s reputation Some violations involve doping with drugs that have no role in horse care use of these drugs is intentional and dangerous for horses These violators deserve the full force of sanctions and fines imposed Other times doping violations are unintentional and occur with controlled medications because of negligent horse care Negligence is failing to exercise the necessary care to prevent foreseeable violations Even though the athlete or trainer may not have intended to administer or compete on a prohibited substance the strict liability standard still applies and penalties will be levied Athletes and trainers can prevent inadvertent doping violations by avoiding situations that create risk of a competition horse ingesting a prohibited substance that causes a positive doping test Most of these preventative steps are relatively simple to follow Have separate and labelled feed buckets for competition horses at shows Whatever you do don t mix feed buckets at horse shows especially in U S National competitions where certain nonsteroidal anti inflammatory drugs NSAIDs are allowed if used alone Don t take the chance of residue of one NSAID in a feed bucket for one horse contaminating another horse maintained on a different one if the buckets are used interchangeably It is good practice to have a dedicated feed bucket for each horse to eliminate the possibility of cross contamination If nothing else having and using a separate feed bucket for each horse shows that one is trying to avoid possible cross contamination Do not leave medications in pre filled feed buckets at 74 competitions even if labelled with the horse s name It is common practice at barns to fill feed buckets up at night for the next morning Unfortunately some barns also put medications into the feed to avoid having to do so in the morning It is one thing if a horse gets the wrong feed but a very different matter if a horse gets the wrong feed and the wrong medication This error often goes undetected until the horse who got the wrong feed comes up with a positive doping or medication violation Although the greatest danger exists if this happens at a competition a doping violation can also occur if a prohibited substance is ingested by a horse at home before leaving for a competition Make one person responsible for administration of all medications Only one person in the barn should be authorized to give medication whether in the feed or by injection The designated person must accept the responsibility for making sure that the right horse gets the right medication in the right dose in the right manner This person must also take responsibility for ensuring that medication put in the feed is given to the right horse Think before you give any supplements to your competition horse Under FEI and USEF rules the rider and trainer assume all the risk that a supplement may contain prohibited substances Even if one has taken all possible precautions to avoid prohibited substances a positive test means loss of prizes and having to explain the circumstances of how the prohibited substance got into the horse Due diligence before using a supplement includes but is not limited to checking the ingredients both brand name and chemical name in the product against the prohibited substance list and checking with your veterinarian before administering it Never use a supplement for the first time at a competition without taking all possible steps to assure there are no prohibited substances in it At home wash all buckets out at least once a week to remove any drug residue Since drug levels can often last for many days after YOUR NEWS YOUR SPORT YOUR BUSINESS March 2017

The DressageTraining Pyramid to Develop Hunters and Jumpers Part II Impulsion Straightness and Collection By Greg Franklin The Dressage Pyramid is an excellent training tool for hunters and jumpers with its roots in classical dressage It is a basic visual aid that can be used when schooling young horses flatting a more experienced horse or teaching all levels of riders from beginner to advanced In the first part of this series I discussed the base of the pyramid focusing on Rhythm Relaxation and Connection In the second part of our series I will be talking about the final three phases of the Dressage Pyramid Impulsion Straightness and Collection For the purposes of training the hunter or jumper we are not looking at these movements for competition dressage but rather as ways of schooling the horse so it has impulsion goes straight and has self carriage Impulsion Impulsion is the fourth level of the Dressage Pyramid The definition of impulsion for our purposes is The horse thinking forward or The horse s desire to go forward Impulsion should not be confused with speed One can be going quite fast with minimal impulsion as well as have a tremendous amount of impulsion at the walk Impulsion starts with the brain of the horse not the legs Along with the other parts of the Pyramid impulsion takes time It starts at the walk A horse that does not think forward at the walk will not be able to do it at the other two gaits One of the ways I like to work on impulsion is doing transitions within a gate or more simply put collecting and lengthening As the horse progresses circles figures of eight and lateral work can also aid in creating impulsion with the horse Straightness The fifth level of the Dressage Pyramid is Straightness This focuses on the longitudinal axis of the horse The horse is traveling straight when the inside hind leg follows behind the inside front leg and the outside hind leg follows behind the outside front leg whether the horse is on a curve or a straight line Straightness like most things with horses is an ongoing process Horses like people have a dominant side so it is naturally easier for them to go one way Also the horse is wider in the hindquarters than it is in the front This can lead to a horse being crooked A crooked horse will put more wear and tear on its legs as more weight will be put on a particular leg We teach horses to go straight by teaching them to bend to the left and to bend to the right not by making the horse go in a straight line Exercises that I like to use for this are circles figures of eight serpentines shoulderin Travers Renvers and even countercanter Collection At the very top of the Pyramid we have Collection When the horse is collected he will shift his weight from the front end to the hindquarter and the horse s poll will become the highest point while the horse achieves flexion at the jaw and the poll This creates a horse with uphill balance which we prefer Impulsion starts with the brain of the horse not the legs Photo by Collin Pierson Photography 76 YOUR NEWS YOUR SPORT YOUR BUSINESS When talking about the different exercises in collections we must differentiate between collecting March April 2017

The horse is traveling straight when the inside hind leg follows behind the inside front leg and the outside hind leg follows behind the outside front leg Photo by Jump Media We teach horses to go straight by teaching them to bend to the left and to bend to the right not by making the horse go in a straight line Photo by Jump Media exercises and collected exercises The main difference is the balance of the horse In collecting exercises the balance of the horse is lower to let the horse use his back more while in collected exercises the poll is the highest point of the horse while the horse has self carriage Collecting exercises can include any exercise that helps the horse shift its weight from front to back such as a half halt rein back or shoulder in Collected exercises can be collected variations at each gait including collected walk collected trot and collected canter along with some upper level dressage movements such as piaffe passage and canter pirouettes I hope after reading this you too can see the value in following the Dressage Pyramid Whether you are riding in the Adult Hunters Big Equitation or Grand Prix Show Jumping you and your horse can benefit from following these techniques Collection creates a horse with uphill balance which we prefer Photo by Jump Media About Greg Franklin Greg Franklin is the head trainer at Canterbury Farm in Hampshire IL For over 35 years Franklin has ridden hunters and jumpers to numerous championships nationally and has brought home numerous Zone 5 Horse of the Year awards Franklin has qualified horses and riders for the Pennsylvania National Washington International and the National Horse Shows including the Medal and Maclay Finals He has also shown internationally at Canada s Spruce Meadows in the 1 40m and 1 45m divisions and is a certified trainer with USHJA Additionally Franklin holds his R card in Hunters Hunter Seat Equitation and Jumpers and judges throughout the country For more information visit www canterburyfarmchicago com March April 2017 YOUR NEWS YOUR SPORT YOUR BUSINESS 77

rider who signs up for a clinic should vet the clinician Make sure that someone you know and trust has ridden with them and that you are putting yourself in a positive situation Last thing you want to do is pay good money to take backward steps in your training professional riders and more amazing with amateurs and juniors no matter the level Beyond that he is just a really great person to be around and the horses know it too I have ridden with him myself and I can vouch for a very productive clinic for you and your horse Couple years later and a lot wiser I am back to putting on a clinic

months from a veterinarian OR for those folks that vaccinate their own horses at home a receipt of the vaccine purchase which is signed by the person who gave it along with the equine s name the serial number and expiration date of the vaccine OR if your horse cannot receive vaccines due to a prior adverse reaction an official letter from a vet describing why this horse should not receive vaccines due to medical concerns AND a log of the horse s temperature taken twice daily for seven days prior to arrival at the event These horses must also have their temperatures taken and recorded twice daily while on the competition grounds I know that these rules can seem obtrusive but I personally feel better knowing that my horses are safer with these rules in place than without them They do so much for me I would hate to feel that I wasn t doing all that I could to keep them healthy and happy And I think I m not alone So look for these changes in the coming Omnibuses and entry forms

CLUB NEWS Oregon Dressage Society The Volte We discussed the need to innovate and help relieve the load of work that Corinne does in the office by having new technology that works for us i e online membership cards roster etc One system Corinne explored had a huge plus of having a system which has automatic credit card processing that would deposit into our checking account two to four times per month This is not only for membership but also for event registration So when we offer an L program instructor trainer Fall Festival and Youth camp The registration will all be able to be done via the website not managed separately using different types of systems We might be able to also add horse show registration through the system Imagine how easy that would make entering shows Last year the board had voted to discontinue the omnibus for multiple reasons but the production of the omnibus was becoming more time consuming less popular with show management more expensive to print mail and by the time it was produced out of date We felt that the ODS calendar would be able to provide the same information So please check out the ODS calendar for 82 2017 Executive Committee President Gaye

change is in the air This became particularly relevant after our treasurer Dolores outlined the budget this year and showed that without changes we would be in the red Not included was any potential income from the ODS Championship Show the League Finals and the Fall Festival This really drove home the point of how much ODS is depending on income from these shows to provide the programs and benefits our members enjoy The budget presented provided that we could break even if we did not produce the roster The members attending the meeting felt that we really need to produce one and Karen Cheeke offered to bring the need to the Mid Valley Chapter and ask if they would provide the needed funds I am pleased to announce that Mid Valley Chapter has agreed to fund the roster this year
