Schleese Takes Home the Gold at NZ Equitana
Written by CRM
Friday, 29 November 2019 00:00
Equitana Auckland returned to New Zealand this past November 21-24 for the second time after the record breaking attendance in Melbourne in 2018. Schleese made the long trek halfway across the world to attend both of these shows and managed to come home with best booth award in 2018, and Innovative Product of the Year in New Zealand (along with 2nd place for best booth!)
Certified Master Saddler and Saddle Ergonomist Jochen Schleese was once again a featured educational presenter, and squeezed in his appearances at Equitana between a Saddlefit 4 Life Equine Ergonomist  course in Johannesburg and a subsequent course in Melbourne. His trip around the world will see him covering over 30,000 miles in less than three weeks!

The innovative product award was presented for Schleese’s new Bi-NateLine™, which is revolutionizing saddle fit in every market. Part of the decision was based on a live presentation in front of a prestigious panel of three veterinarians who acted as judge and jury. The Bi-NateLine™ (BNL) saddles are made on our infinitely adjustable lightweight AdapTree®, which outperform any other tree on the market today – be it English or Western!  It is the ultimate wedding of Western and English worlds to keep the horse comfortable and moving optimally to perform at its best.
With this new Bi-NateLine™ Schleese secures its position as the leading ‘horse-friendly’ manufacturer in the world, by creating a saddle that not only combines form with function, but provides the lowest pounds per square inch pressure distribution on the horse’s back with the PSI panel. Avoiding the sensitive reflex points on the horses back, Schleese has created a saddle line with the Bi-NateLine™ that will support a longer-lasting softer, closer, saddle fitting, which is unmatched in today’s market and will become the new standard.

Applications Now Open for 2020 Thoroughbred Makeover
Written by CRM
Monday, 02 December 2019 00:00
The Retired Racehorse Project announced today that applications are open for the 2020 Thoroughbred Makeover, presented by Thoroughbred Charities of America. Applications will be accepted through January 15, 2020, and accepted trainers will be announced on February 15, 2020.
Now in its sixth year, the Thoroughbred Makeover features competition in ten disciplines for recently-retired Thoroughbreds in their first year of retraining for a second career after racing. Disciplines include barrel racing, competitive trail, dressage, eventing, field hunters, freestyle, polo, show hunter, show jumper, and ranch work.

Horses and trainers will compete for more than $125,000 in total prize money, plus the coveted title of Thoroughbred Makeover Champion, at the Kentucky Horse Park on October 7-10, 2020. The Thoroughbred Makeover and National Symposium includes not just the competition, but educational seminars, a vendor fair, the Makeover Marketplace horse sale and the Makeover Master Class featuring demonstrations and insight from leading trainers. The Finale features the top five horses in each discipline and will be livestreamed for viewers at home.
"The Retired Racehorse Project was created to drive demand for Thoroughbreds after racing as sport horses, and the Thoroughbred Makeover is one of the most successful executions of this mission," describes the RRP's executive director Jen Roytz. "Each year the event has grown in both size and scope and we’re seeing more and more Makeover graduates representing the breed on the national stage.”
The Thoroughbred Makeover is open to professionals, amateurs, juniors (ages 12 and older) and teams. Applicants are required to provide information about their riding and competition background as well as references, including one from a veterinarian. Applicants are encouraged to provide links to riding video, which is a requirement for first-time competitors. Competitors do not need to have acquired their horse at the time of application, though must declare their horse no later than July 31, 2020.
Approved trainers may acquire eligible Thoroughbreds through whatever source they choose, or can ride under contract for an owner. Eligible horses must have raced or had a published work on or after July 1, 2018 and must not have started retraining for a second career prior to December 1, 2019 other than a maximum of 15 allowable rides. The 2020 Thoroughbred Makeover Rulebook outlines all rules and information relevant to the competition, with changes for 2020 marked in red and clarifying information marked in blue.
The Thoroughbred Makeover, produced by the 501(c)3 non-profit organization Retired Racehorse Project, is made possible each year by the generosity and support of sponsors and donors. In addition to the Makeover, the RRP publishes Off-Track Thoroughbred Magazine, maintains the Retired Racehorse Resource Directory, the online Thoroughbred Sport Tracker (the only user-driven database for Thoroughbred bloodlines in second careers), and a library of educational materials online, and produces educational demonstrations around the country at clinics and expos, all with the goal of increasing demand for Thoroughbreds in second careers.

USHJA Members:

Recently, we were alerted to a phone scam in which several horse shows have reported that criminals are trying to steal credit card information from exhibitors by using fake feed and bedding order forms, or by asking for personal payment information over the phone.

CVHJM Comes to an End

It is with great sadness that we come to an end of the Central Valley Hunter/Jumper Miniseries.  

As you all know, our attendance at these shows has been less than expected and much less than fiscally viable to continue the series.  The show on September 21 suffers the same low attendance forecast. Therefore, we have come to the conclusion that we must sadly end the show series.  Luckily there are many other schooling shows in other areas nearby for your riders to participate in.  

Enter in September for Vegas in November!
