(clodronate injection)
For use in horses only.
Brief Summary (For Full Prescribing Information, see package
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 acci-
dental human exposure.
PRECAUTIONS: As a class, bisphosphonates may be associ-
ated 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 im-
pairment 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 mon-
itored. 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 min-
erals and electrolytes such as calcium, magnesium and po-
tassium, 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 skel-
eton of growing horses has not been studied; however, bisphos-
phonates 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 lac-
tating 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 to-
tal 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; how-
ever, 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

he FEI World Equestrian Games™ Tryon 2018 (WEG),
hosted only for the second time ever in the United
States, captivated the global equestrian community
from September 11-23, 2018 at Tryon International
Equestrian Center (TIEC), welcoming world championship
caliber competition for each of the eight FEI-sanctioned
disciplines: Dressage, Driving, Endurance, Eventing,
Jumping, Para-Dressage, Reining, and Vaulting over the
two-week timeframe. The WEG is held every four years in
the middle of the Summer Olympic cycle and features top
equestrian competitors from around the world vying for top
team and individual titles in their respective disciplines.
The story of WEG arriving in Tryon, NC, was different than
initially anticipated, as Mark Bellissimo and the Tryon
Equestrian Partners stepped in over halfway through the
planning cycle to save the event after host city, Bromont,
dropped their nomination. Working on an 18-month
timeline instead of a four-year plan, the team at TIEC had
to work quickly to ensure that the sporting venues and
infrastructure were complete for the start.
The event ofcially opened on Tuesday, September 11, a day
before competition began, welcoming the world to Western
North Carolina with special words spoken by President
of the FEI, Ingmar de Vos, and Chief Executive Ofcer of
Tryon 2018, Mark Bellissimo. Grammy-nominated country
music artist Hunter Hayes wowed the crowds, following an
emotional Parade of Nations to ofcially commence the start
of competition.
“This WEG showcased incredible sport in
each of the disciplines hosted throughout the
two weeks; some of the best competition in
history,” said Michael Stone, President of the
Tryon 2018 Organizing Committee. “We’re
proud of what we were able to accomplish in
such a short time frame and our team worked
incredibly hard to make sure we were able to
deliver these Games for the athletes, horses,
and spectators.”
In one of the most highly anticipated
showdowns of the event, Helgstrand
Dressage competition featured the world’s
collective best on one single stage, a rarity
in the sport. Isabell Werth of Germany and
her superb mare, Bella Rose, who had been
absent from the international Dressage
competition circuit for nearly four years due
to an injury, returned in incredible form.
The duo went toe-to-toe with the United
State’s top combination and current world
number one, Laura Graves and Verdades,
who sit atop the world standings after their
astounding performances in Tryon.
“This was my answer to all those who did
not understand how I could leave the world’s
number one horse at home for this one. Most
horse people here know how close I am to
Bella and to bring her back after the long
recovery after WEG 2014 is extra special. We
always knew it could be a risk, but it is like
that with every horse,” said Werth tearfully,
describing her emotion over winning aboard
her special mount.
Riders hailing from Great Britain stormed to the top of the
leaderboard in Mars, Incorporated Eventing, nishing on the
lowest combined team score in the history of WEG, as all four
team riders completed each of the three phases and nished
within the optimum time on Cross-Country. Ros Canter
nished as victor on the individual podium for the British
team as well, their rst individual win since 2006.
“Allstar B was absolutely amazing. He was an absolute hero.
I had an amazing experience in there,” commented Canter
on her double Gold accomplishment for Team GBR. “I kept
saying to myself just let him do his job and I am so proud. He
is just phenomenal. There were quite a few tears when I found
out, which isn’t normal for me. It’s just incredible for me and
the whole support team behind Team Great Britain. It’s just
the most incredible feeling and a very surreal day.”
Johnson Controls Reining saw the rst ever Individual Gold
medal for the nation of Belgium, won by Bernard Fonck, while
the top guns of Team USA secured Team Gold, continuing
their dominance in the discipline. Cade McCutcheon, the
youngest competitor for Team USA at the age of eighteen,
nished in a run-off for third place to take individual Bronze
aboard his mount Custom Made Gun.
The second week of the event brought Jumping, Para-Dressage,
Driving, and Vaulting competition to TIEC, featuring another
six days of outstanding sport. Jumping remains one of the
most popular spectator disciplines, and expectations were
high as teams and riders from around the world descended
upon U.S. Trust Arena.

In what will be remembered as one of the best
demonstrations of top sport in history, the Bank of
America Merrill Lynch Jumping Team and Individual
Finals featured many of the world’s best riders going
head-to-head for two of the most prestigious honors
available in international competition for the discipline
of Jumping. Ultimately after a strong display of prowess
from the Swiss team, it was the United States that made
their mark on the leaderboard after an unprecedented
team jump-off against Sweden for Gold. McLain Ward,
Adrienne Sternlicht, Laura Kraut, and Devin Ryan
composed the team for the United States. Sweden
captured the Silver medal, while the Germans took home

“I knew the situation. I had one fence down and then I knew I couldn’t
afford a time fault. I got a second opportunity in the jump-off. I wanted
to go in and just do the best round I could. All the guys came through
brilliantly and I am so proud to be American today,” said team anchor and
veteran McLain Ward, who piloted his rst-time champion mount, Clinta,
to an outstanding performance for Team USA.
In an incredible display of resiliency and mental stamina, the home team
rose to the occasion to outlast the Swedish team in a nail-biting effort
during an incredibly rare championship jump-off. The team celebrated
their victory on familiar soil; a testament to the development and
persistence that the program developed by Robert Ridland, has held them
accountable to for the last few years.
“This was sport at its best,” said U.S. Chef d’Equipe Robert Ridland. “The
odds on a jump-off being required were incredible, although we realized
it was a possibility. This, today, is why we do it. We have been dreaming
about this for so long. We have a tremendous group of talented riders.”
Simone Blum, an underdog and youngster in a eld of established and
renowned competitors, wowed on her mare DSP Alice for Germany,
ultimately taking the coveted honor as world champion, the youngest
woman to ever do so. The female duo of Blum and DSP Alice, did not
accumulate a single jumping fault over ve rounds of competition, an
incredible feat for the rising stars.
“I cannot believe it,” said Blum of her FEI World Equestrian Games™
debut. “I cannot describe my feelings. It is just the perfect day. Alice
performed the whole week without any jumping faults. She is such a
careful horse with the biggest heart. I was a little bit nervous today, but
I stayed focused and knew that if I rode well then she never normally
touches a pole.”

Capital Challenge Celebrates 25 Years of Top
By Emily Riden/Jump Media
Two and a half decades ago, Oliver Kennedy and Billy Glass started the
Capital Challenge Horse Show at the Prince Georges Equestrian Center
in Upper Marlboro, MD, with a vision of what it could one day become.
On September 28 – October 7, that show – now recognized as a U.S.
Equestrian Heritage Competition – celebrated its 25th anniversary with
an event that has more than realized their vision.
Over the course of the 10-day show, more than $375,000 in prize money
was awarded and more than 1,500 entries vied for top honors in classes
including ve year-end equitation nals, nine World Championship
Hunter Rider (WCHR) Challenge classes (including the $50,000
WCHR Professional Challenge, sponsored by e Gochman Family and
Radwanski Enterprises), the $25,000 North American Green Hunter
Championship, and the $10,000 WCHR Professional Finals.
Liza Boyd of Camden, SC, and Amanda Steege of Ocala, FL, earned two
of the show’s most prestigious honors during the 25th anniversary event.
For the second consecutive year, Boyd topped the nations best hunter
riders to win the $10,000 WCHR Professional Finals, sponsored by
Radwanski Enterprises.
“Its a great feeling; it’s exciting,” said Boyd of her win, which came only
aer each of the top four riders in the WCHR Pro Finals took turns
rotating rides on four horses generously donated by Claiborne Bishop/e
Barracks and the University of Virginia (UVA) in a unique catch-riding
Steeges headline victory came aboard Latte de Muze in the $50,000
WCHR Professional Challenge.
“Hes such a pro,” said Steege of the seven-year-old Belgian Warmblood
gelding owned by Cheryl Olsten. “I think Latte just thinks that this is
how all horses do it. He loves it, and he does it, but I dont think he thinks
its any big deal.
In the $25,000 North American Green Hunter Championship, sponsored
by e Wheeler Family, victory went to Laena Romond of Somers, NY,
riding Traveller, owned by Catherine Cowie. Later that same day, Karli
Postel of Westlake Village, CA, riding Banksy, owned by Grace Russo,
captured the win in the $5,000 WCHR Developing Pro Challenge.
Among the junior and amateur competitors celebrating success at the
Capital Challenge Horse Show, few had more of a banner week than Martha
Ingram of Nashville, TN. e 21-year-old kicked o the horse show with
the win in the North American Adult Amateur Equitation Championship
riding Airport 48, during the Equitation Weekend.
Ingram then returned to win the $2,500 WCHR 3’3” Amateur-Owner
Challenge aboard Lyons Creek Bellini on October 4, and two days later,
she and Airport 48 also topped the Ariat National Adult Medal Final.
“I’m feeling really ecstatic,” said Ingram. “As the rst national horse show
[of the indoor season], you’ve been working all year and you want to come
in and have a good horse show and set your season o. It’s just been a
whirlwind, and I couldn’t be happier.

Elena dedicates herself to capturing the essence of horse and
rider, bringing her insightful eye to a world she knows well, having
competed with great success on her legendary stallion Larone,
aboard whom she won the National Horse Show in New York
City in 2003 in the High Junior Amateur Division.
Her ability to capture the moment was a natural transition from
rider to photographer of the horse world.
In 2014 she was the recipient of the acclaimed PDN Photo
Annual Award in New York for her unique and fresh approach to
equestrian photography.
Her images appear in Taschen’s book ‘The Dog in Photography

World of Wellington (expected release January 2019, title to be
announced) and in the book ‘WEF, The Equestrian Lifestyle
Destination’, produced in partnership with the Winter Equestrian
Festival (2013).
Her fine art photography, taken during a lifetime of travels across
the world, testify to Elena’s ability to capture the beauty of the
human spirit, of the horse, and every situation.
During WEF, Elena focuses her work on portrait
commissions of riders and their equestrian partners.

Molly Ashe Cawley and D’Arnita Earn Career-
Best Victory at 2018 American Gold Cup
By Caroline Nickolaus / Phelps Media Group
Winner of the $204,000 American Gold Cup CSI 4*-W Presented by Longines Molly Ashe Cawley & D’Arnita
n annual event that showcases world-class international show
jumping competition, the 2018 American Gold Cup CSI4*-W
took place from Wednesday, Sept. 26, through Sunday, Sept. 30,
and celebrated its seventh year being held at the breathtaking
Old Salem Farm. This year’s show marked its fourth year as part of the
Longines FEI Jumping World Cup™ North American League and, in typical
fashion, hosted an international lineup of renowned equestrian athletes and
their incredible horses.
Fresh off a team gold medal finish at the 2018 FEI World Equestrian
Games™ just one week prior, three of the four members of the NetJets®
U.S. Show Jumping Team — McLain Ward, Adrienne Sternlicht and Devin
Ryan —made the trip from Tryon, North Carolina, to North Salem, New
York, to showcase their talents and compete at the renowned American
Gold Cup.
Ultimately, it was the United States’ Molly Ashe Cawley who
earned a spot on the coveted American Gold Cup trophy after
she and Louisburg Farm’s 10-year-old Dutch Warmblood mare
D’Arnita captured the $204,000 Longines FEI Jumping World
Cup™ New York CSI4*-W in front of a packed crowd of more
than 5,500 show jumping fans on Sunday to close out the show’s
highlight event.
“It means a lot to win a class of this magnitude,” said Cawley.
“[D’Arnita] was 6 coming 7 when we got her. This is her biggest
outing so far to date and I was thrilled with her. I thought she
answered all of the questions and really rose to the occasion. I’m
super excited. I think there are plenty more to come. She’s really
a super horse. Every time she wins, it means a lot to us because
she’s been a fighter and she’s just a class act. I’m super excited to
have her.
The talented pair raced to beat the clock in the jump-off, passing
through the timers in a quick 36.76 seconds, just a hair ahead of
second place finishers Margie Engle (USA) and Royce by one-
tenth of a second. This achievement not only marked D’Arnita’s
most prestigious win of her career thus far, but also Cawley’s first
time securing the illustrious title. Mattias Tromp (USA) rounded
out the top three spots riding Quinta, while Lucy Davis (USA),
trainer at Old Salem Farm, finished in the fourth place position
aboard Caracho.
In addition, Ward captured three wins throughout the week aboard
a new string of horses, including Thursday’s $2,500 Staller 1.35m
Jumper class with Queen Jane, owned by Walstib Stables LLC,
Friday’s $80,000 American Gold Cup Qualifier CSI4*-W with
Contagious, owned by Beechwood Stables LLC, and Saturday’s
$70,000 Fidelity Investments® Classic CSI4* with Tradition De
La Roque, owned by Kessler Show Stables Europe B.V.
Prior to the start of Sunday afternoon’s action, the crowd
gathered to honor Ward’s legendary partner, Rothchild, during a
well-deserved retirement ceremony. Some of their notable career
achievements include winning individual gold and team bronze for
the USA at the 2015 Pan American Games in Toronto, Canada.
“He looks amazing and he is happier and healthier than ever,
said Ward. “It’s nice to be able to retire him in such a good state.
Obviously, he had a brilliant career and he really was my buddy.
That horse really defied the odds and did some incredible things
and is probably pound-for-pound the best horse I have ever ridden
because of the things he overcame. It’s sad to see his career end in
one way, but it’s a great memory and he’s still healthy and happy.
Mark your calendars as the 49th edition of the American Gold
Cup returns to Old Salem Farm next year
Sept. 11–15, 2019!

Dr. Darby Bonomi takes a fresh look at achievement in equestrian sport – shifting
the focus from rider performance to riding enjoyment. Her philosophy: reclaim
the joy in your ride, get connected and the success happens – however you
dene it for you that day.
Darby also looks beyond the rider and helps families unravel their toughest
challenges — from how to choose a training program to how to communicate
with their rider on show days. Her Leg Up practice is built on her vision of long-
term health and happiness of riders, horses, and their support systems. She has
the wisdom of 25 years as a practicing psychologist and a life-long participation
in the equestrian world as a rider, parent and owner.
Courageous – Inspired – Inspiring
Darby grew up in San Francisco and when she was 10 her family acquired a ranch
outside of Healdsburg, California. Despite having no experience, she felt the
undeniable call -- the barn was heaven. It was a place to nd solitude and peace,
and the relationship with horses was serenity.
Once her parents realized horses were here to stay, Darby worked with trainers
Lu and Butch Thomas at their Willow Tree Farm and then with Linda and Champ
Hough at Sutton Place. As a Junior, Darby was able to achieve her goal of
competing in the Maclay Medal Final at Madison Square Garden. Looking back,
she credits Linda with the basis of some of her current practices with her simple
message “You’re good. Just ride” – in other words be in the present with your
horse, let go of the mental process and just feel the ride. Later that notion
became the touchstone for Leg Up consulting.
Frontline Credentials
As Darby reached the age for academic pursuit, the horses left her life
temporarily – but they’d be back! Darby received her doctorate at California
School of Professional Psychology in Berkeley and postdoctoral degree at the
San Francisco Psychoanalytic Institute (now The SF Center for Psychoanalysis).
For almost 20 years she maintained a private clinical practice, working primarily
with adults and teens in long-term psychotherapy and psychoanalysis. She also
supervised psychiatric residents at several hospitals and was on the faculty at the
SF Psychoanalytic Institute.
And then, a realization: rather than treating mental illness, Darby had a vision for
fostering psychological health.
Back to the Barn for The Equestrian Mentor
The desire to be fully present with and for her children was the catalyst for Darby
to close her psychology practice and embark on a new path. For several years,
she was a full-time mother – and Darby realized the barn was again part of the
family -- her older daughter, Adele, had the draw – she had to ride.
As her own children became riders and more independent, Darby found herself
being sought out by other parents and riders for advice and counsel -- after
all, she was successfully juggling 2 daughters’ and her own A-circuit riding –
a role model! Earlier in 2018, she launched Leg Up Performance Coaching --
combining her passion for equestrian sports with many years of clinical work.
From her unique vantage point, she provides tools and perspective for riders
Reclaim Joy for
Connection and Success

Dr. Darby Bonomi
“In our current fast paced and competitive world, it’s easy to lose
touch with what drew us to the sport..
The big picture gets lost in a world where blue ribbons and
championships are revered and small quiet moments of triumph or
progress go unnoticed.
I provide riders and their families with the tools and the perspective
to navigate the complex equestrian world, while staying connected to
what is most important.”

reminds us to focus on the joy and gratitude we have for our generous equine
Courage: to have fear and act anyway
Darby knew she was on to something when her thoughtful blog entry -- Transform
Fear into Joy -- garnered feedback from all kinds of equestrians and organizations.
She struck a nerve -- it has become her signature program. The series was born
from answering the question what’s your biggest obstacle? The answer: myself!
Darby’s clients learn to utilize anxiety rather than be paralyzed by it — both in
and out of the saddle. Ask Darby her perspective on fear and she’ll answer you
with condence: “embrace it, use it, and take a step forward -- and do it again
Darby’s formula is simple: Connect – Enjoy – Succeed

The Big Picture
Leg Up also provides the ideal platform for Darby’s ultimate goal: elevate the
horse community—educate, inform, and empower riders and owners with the
information and tools to help them reclaim the joy in their sport—that’s what
results in improved performance and greater well-being.
She is involved in our national governing body and also plans to nish training to
become a USEF judge. She hopes to become a spokesperson and advocate for
owners and riders on a national level, making our sport more accessible, more
accountable, and more visible to the general public.
Darby writes a regular column for the website Street to Stable and publishes her
insightful blog regularly. Recently she gave her talk “Fear No Fear” at Giant Steps
Therapeutic Equestrian Center and gives similar talks at training stables and other
small groups.

Dressage Report
By Gunn Cooper
Since EI dressage did not have any events
in August or September I have nothing to
report about that, instead I am going to tell
you about a fabulous trip I took to Iceland
with my family in the beginning of August.
My two sisters and I have been riding
since we were little girls and have for some
time talked about going to Iceland to ride
Icelandic horses. My little sister turned 60
this year so we decided that this was the year
to do it, a last-minute conict prevented her
from coming but my husband and daughter
joined us instead.
Iceland is a unique and very beautiful place.
e whole country is volcanic and reminded
me of Hawaiis Big Island without the lush
tropical foliage, instead they have moss,
grass and low bushes. ere are only 300,000
islanders living in Iceland and most of them,
200,000 lives in the capital Reykjavik. Once
you leave the capital the landscape is either
lava elds or grass lands. Just about every
house you pass has two or three horses in
NovEmbEr 2018 57
the back yard. We asked about this and found
out that the Icelandic horse is very hardy and
is only fed hay, they have no need for any
supplements or oats. During the summer
they are just turned out on private or public
pastures and everyone grows their own hay
to feed during the cold part of the year. is
makes it very economical to keep a couple
of horses and the Icelanders we talked to are
very proud of their horses.
We went on two rides, one with all four of us.
On that one we rode with a young German
woman as our guide through an open
pasture landscape surrounded by volcanic
mountains in the distance. Since all of us
knew how to ride we got to do the tolt (the
fourth gate Icelanders have that is like a very
smooth trot) as well as a fun gallop up a hill
on the way home. My sister and I went on a
second ride, just the two of us accompanied
by a young woman from Sweden. We told
them we were very experience riders and
were therefore assigned younger horses
that were much nicer than the ones we had
on our rst ride. is time we rode along
a very dramatic gorge, it was almost like
a mini-Grand Canyon setting. It was just
the three of us and we got to do a lot of
tolting and cantering. When we were about
a mile away from home riding along a dirt
road with a busy highway on one side and
a deep drainage ditch on the other side,
my sisters horse decided that he had had
enough of walking and wanted to get home.
Without any warning at all he just took o
and bolted, my horse did the same thing.
Like I said earlier, I have ridden all my life,
but this was the rst time I was on a horse
that not only couldnt be stopped, it was
not even possible to slow it down. We were
ripping on the reins and yelling in English,
Swedish and German at the horses to slow
down, but nothing worked. Someone who
heard this story told me that the problem was
that we didn’t speak Icelandic, but I dont
think so, these horses just had it in their
head that they wanted to go home and that
is what they did. e little Swedish girl and
her horse couldn’t even keep up with us. I
have never ridden so fast in my whole life
and it was terrifying to be so totally out of
control. But we survived, luckily there was
no bucking involved. e moral of the story
is, don’t brag about having ridden all your
life, at least not when you’re in Iceland, or
you might just have the ride of your life!

I hope everyone who attended the
weekend with Lisa Wilcox, enjoyed the
experience. e annual special awards
banquet and silent auction is also
typically a fun time. Unfortunately, I
was not able to attend this year because
of a prior out of country engagement.
ODS is proud to be able to sponsor
these events and we look forward to
bringing more events like this to our
members next year. Please let us know
about any ideas you might have.
e beginning of October I enjoyed
a trip down to Central Point to nish
up the competition year at the State
of Jeerson USDF/USEF Recognized
Show. e State of Jeerson Dressage
Chapter of ODS put on a very nice
show. While it is the last recognized
show of our season in the Northwest,
it actually is the rst of qualiers for
the 2019 show year. is is a good one
to add to next year’s calendar.
In mid-October I traveled with a
dierent horse to the ODS League
Finals Show at Donida Farms
Equestrian Center in Auburn,
Washington. e Lower Puget Sound
Dressage Chapter of ODS put the
show on this year. e show has not
run the last couple years. e LPSD
Chapter did a wonderful job of early
advertising and the show was a full
day with several riders going up from
Oregon. ey revived excitement for

next year. ODS is seeking chapters interested in running
the 2019 League Championships. e ODS Board is also
exploring the possibility of developing a medals program
for the League riders. Stay tuned for more information
about the possibilities.
ODS has had an annual ODS USDF/USEF Championships
since 1981. We are currently seeking a committee chair
and members to be sure we have a successful show in
2019. An experienced show secretary is already willing to
continue on, but we need a Show Manager and committee
members to produce this show, which is planned once
again be held at Devonwood Equestrian Center. Contact
me if you have interest in this committee.
Several Regions 6 and ODS members will be heading
to Utah at the end of November to attend the USDF
Convention – Dressage Elevated. All ODS members are
invited and encouraged to attend. If you have ideas or
concerns you want brought forth to USDF, please contact
the delegates attending from the ODS Board: Karen
Cheeke, Emily Kenyon, and Sam Clement. Jo Renn and
Gaye McCabe also plan to attend.
Plans are underway for the ODS Annual Retreat which
includes the rst quarterly meeting of the year, educational
activities, and networking opportunities. Board members
are required to attend this annual event and we strongly
encourage all committee chairs and representatives from
each of our ODS Chapters to come and participate and

October 13th and 14th at Donida Farm
is was the revival of a show which has not
happened for the past couple years. It was quite
a success, and was met with enthusiasm from
both riders and organizers. is was a year-end
nale for those who have participated in ODS
league shows (non-USDF recognized) through
the year. It included classes at Intro through
Second Level as well as Freestyle and Western
Dressage. anks to some great sponsors, we
were able to oer a "big show" feel, great prizes,
and still keep prices reasonable. For many of
our league show participants, this was their rst
experience traveling to a multi-day show with
stabling. e friendly atmosphere, and great
weather this weekend oered them a positive
introduction to moving up in the sport. We
also had the very special event of Sharon Scott
doing her "Century Ride" on her horse Shazzy.
is is a recognition sponsored by e Dressage
Foundation for a horse and rider who's combined
ages add to 100 or more.

shipped o to distance wars in defense of
our country and may have rescued a few
maidens tied to railroad tracks.
In an eort to keep their horses t and
have a dandy time while doing it, they
devised a number of activities. Each fort
had such delights as horse shows, a polo
team and a mounted hunt. Eventing was
an aspect of training/pleasure as well.
us it was for Woodbrook Hunt Club.
It began as a migration of members from
the Seattle Hunt Club south in the early
1900s and morphed into a recognized
hunt in 1926 with Fort Lewis (Now
Joint Base Lewis McChord) as its “hunt
country”. WHC purchased 5 acres next
to the base and the Club House our
founders built there continues with
creative maintenance.
Until recently there were only three
hunts still stationed at military
reservations. Now, there is only one that
touts itself as aliated with such and
that is Leavenworth. What constitutes
“aliated” is not quite certain but,
Woodbrook enjoys a long standing,
friendly, formally leased, cooperation
with the Army that we jealously guard
and appreciate. Whereas other hunts in
our country struggle to gain access to
private properties by schmoozing area
farmers and staying ahead of encroaching
development, we have thousands of
stunning acres to enjoy in the areas
JBLM makes available to us on any
given hunt day. Granted, they are
assigned but, we gladly cooperate.
It saves dodging rie re and other
unfriendly things.
e cavalry was a brief glory that we
owe to, you guessed it, General George
S. Patton. …and you thought all he did
was save the Lipizzaner's? Patton moved
the 115th Cavalry from Wyoming to
Fort Lewis in 1940. It was mechanized
in 1942 but, during his time here, he
hunted with us and, as we all know, was
a dedicated horseman. So are we!

Want To Come Watch A Hunt By Car?
Very oen where we hunt allows a car caravan to follow us along the
way, with great viewing of the hounds running, sta and huntsman
working, and the elds jumping. It also gives viewers a chance to see
some breathtaking beautiful woods and prairies that are typical of
this part of the Pacic Northwest. Parents like to come and watch
their kids, or non-riding friends, spouses and partners get a kick out
of participating in this way on a hunt.
en everyone comes back to the clubhouse for a hearty hunt
"breakfast" around a roaring re in the clubhouse. If you'd like to do
this, email us at, some fun hunts
to come and watch are the Blessing of the Hounds Hunt, Opening
Day Hunt and our Junior Pony Club Hunt! Tally ho!
e Real Heroes of the Hunt are the
Fox Draglayers, All Welcome!!
Have you ever wondered if you have what it takes to out fox our
awesome pack of hounds? Our hounds on a hunt are following a
"drag" scent laid along the trails by humans on ATVs, bikes, or on
foot. Over the years the human runners seem to be producing the
best "voice" from a pack of foxhounds, the cry they make when they
"hit" the scent and are o in hot pursuit of wherever that scent came
from. e best drag layers or as we like to refer to them as our "foxes"
try and simulate the way a fox would run across country, which might
mean crossing a creek, running along the top of a huge felled tree, or
doubling back over your tracks. It can be as much fun for the drag
layers as it is the hounds!
We recently held our rst Fox Clinic, where Simon Chapman, one
of our drag layers shared with runners what it takes to outfox a pack
of hounds. We will be holding another clinic soon, where you will
actually run with foxes, learn some of the intriguing ways wild foxes
run, how scent is mixed, and maybe have a hound or two try and
catch you! If you just like to run and see dierent country, or are a
non-hunting spouse, partner or friend of a WHC member and want
to participate in a hunt, just not from the back of a horse (although
riding skills come in handy sometimes) this could be for you!
e reward as shown in the picture of Simon being "caught" by a
hound is all the reward our foxes need! To have a pack of hounds
behind you in full cry is very exciting they say, dragman Eric Stiemert
has even climbed trees to watch the hounds work his scent. He once
forded a pretty good sized pond and was sitting on the other side
hidden but watching the hounds try and gure out where he went,
when one swam into the pond and over to where Eric was hiding,
then the hound swam back and brought the rest of the hounds back
to Eric! If you are interested in learning more about drag laying with
the Woodbrook Hunt Club, contact dragsman Simon Chapman at
253-209-7281 with any questions.
