ADOPT ME: Red Bucket Equine Rescue proudly presents Behren. Behren is a stunning 10 year old 16.1 hand Thoroughbred gelding. He is a bit of a comic, genuinely likes people, and attention. He is very smart and will be well suited in a home that will lavish attention on him, provide turnout and ocialization, and kind interaction. Behren has received a good fundamental education under saddle and is very pretty. Behren and other Red Bucket horses are available for adoption to suitable loving homes. Serious adopters are requested to complete an adoption application which is available at www.redbucketrescue.org. Adoption fee $1500.

From a World Cup Finals recap to a preview of possible World Cup stars of tomorrow, hailing from the Sacramento Area Hunter/Jumper Association, we have a wide range of articles again this month. Carl Hester’s clinic at the Del Mar Fairgrounds was a highlight for many dressage enthusiasts, us included, and we are glad to have round-ups of local middle and high school equestrian action, with more to come next month.

Cowboy Dressage is an American style of dressage celebrating the American West and its horsemen. The purpose of western dressage is to make the horse, a better version of itself.  Approximately 20 years ago, Eitan Beth-Halachmy decided to marry classical dressage and the American cowboy, building a western horse into much more than a show horse.

A judge’s perspective on the most under-appreciated job at the horse show.

by Karen Healey

Before I talk about what I like or don’t like when I judge hunters, I want to talk a little about what the job entails. I personally think that every trainer should have their judge’s cards – it makes you a way better exhibitor!

Jim Ifko

Busy Blenheim Spring

Canadian Jim Ifko began his season in California on a high note, taking the win in the $50,000 Blenheim Spring Classic IV Grand Prix aboard Eventyre Farms Ltd.’s Un Diamant des Forets on Sat., April 14. In front of a full audience of fellow equestrians and local fans, he delivered two swift, faultless rounds that secured him the win by over 2.5 seconds against five others in the jump-off. Robert Blanchette and his own Coupis picked up second place as the only other double clear finisher. Following them after the jump-off were Lane Clarke and Romeo du Paradis; Mattias Ekeroth and Hautesse Van’t Zorgvliet and Kyle King and McLord’s Othelo.

Prioritizing & time management must be cultivated in a riding career and carry over well to the rest of life.
