Former top rider helps equestrians excel as a physical therapist and performance training fitness expert focused on sport-specifics for equestrians.

National Three-Star Champion eventer Frankie Thieriot Stutes thought a generic gym work-out would suffice as a saddle-time supplement fitness-wise. While getting a chance to work with Britta Pedersen, Frankie learned she was sorely wrong about that. And, we do mean sorely wrong.

Working with Frankie at the behest of US eventing chef d’equipe Erik Duvander, Britta designed a sport specific training program for Frankie, with an exercise prescription tailored to her strengths and weaknesses. Britta recalls Frankie first describing the work-out as not too hard, then calling the next day to report that muscles she never knew she had were reporting otherwise – very loudly.

New mainstream film depicts successful program through which convicts train wild Mustangs.

The Mustang is about Roman, played by Matthias Schoenaerts, a convict in a rural Nevada prison who struggles to escape his violent past. He is required to participate in an “outdoor maintenance” program as part of his state-mandated social rehabilitation. Spotted by a no-nonsense veteran trainer, played by Bruce Dern, and helped by an outgoing fellow inmate and trick rider, played by Jason Mitchell, Roman is accepted into the selective wild horse training section of the program, where he finds his own humanity in gentling an especially unbreakable Mustang.

Eventing High Performance Director Erik Duvander likes what he sees out West.

by Kim F. Miller

The annual fundraising clinic at Galway Downs celebrated its 21st year in January and the concept of having 20-plus trainers work all weekend with a flow of new horse/rider pairs is a familiar phenomenon for most who took part.

But it was all new for USEF High Performance Director Erik Duvander, who served along with Ian Stark as coach for the highest level of participants. “To see that many trainers and horses simultaneously, I’ve never seen anything like it and I’m very impressed with the initiative,” he said. “It’s nice to see coaches putting that time in for free, to see the funds it brought to the sport. The whole experience was really good. I thoroughly enjoyed it and I hope to be invited back again next year.”

Independent young eventer gets more than by with a little help from her friends and family.

by Kim F. Miller

Winning two One-Star eventing competitions with a 6-year-old horse last year only scratches the surface of young rider Charlotte Babbitt’s story so far. The high school senior decided to live apart from her family at 15 in order to train with Andrea Pfeiffer’s Chocolate Horse Farm in Petaluma. Before that she lived with her family in the Tahoe area, where top notch eventing training was not available. With the blessing of her parents Elizabeth Thieriot and Victor Babbitt, she moved to Petaluma. She’s lived with members of Chocolate Horse Farm’s honorary family for the last three years, most recently with trainer Amber Levine.

Understanding the parasite lifecycle is important to management.

by Tom Lenz, DVM, MS, DACT

Veterinary Parasitologists are reporting an increase in resistance by equine internal parasites to routinely used anthelmentics (dewormers). Most horse owners and some veterinarians are still following a 40-year-old plan for internal parasite control that recommended deworming every horse in the herd or on the premises every two to three months.

What is Advocacy?

Advocacy is, in basic sense, the act of publicly speaking, writing or recommending on behalf of or in support of an idea, action, cause, policy or proposal. It can also be, specifically, helping persons to achieve their needs in terms of rights. There is even an Advocacy charter, but we won’t get into that here. We’re going to talk about advocating for what your equine community needs, and how to do it.

Former top rider wishes he knew then what he knows now as a master saddle fitter.

Eventing is the equivalent of equestrian triathlon:  comprised of dressage, cross-country and show jumping. It has its roots as a comprehensive cavalry test requiring mastery of all three components. It can be a one-day horse trial or a three-day event. It is known in Europe still as “Military” or in North America as Combined Training. The original predecessor was actually an endurance test of 360 miles from Berlin to Vienna, without dressage, jumping, or galloping.

Getting a head start on pest control is even more important after an extra rainy season.

This effects of this winter’s heavy rains have not stopped at road closures, mud slides and seriously altering training and show schedules. They’ve also made a wetter environment that fly and other pest larvae love and will thrive in. So, along with our currently emerald green grasses and hillsides, a heavier than usual barrage of flies is expected this spring and summer.

Canadian veterinary college readies research on equine gastrointestinal disease.

“Gastrointestinal disease in horses is probably the number one cause of all illness,” says Ontario Veterinary College researcher Dr. Luis Arroyo. His research team is hard at work investigating how microorganisms in the gut can get out of control and cause disease.     Greater understanding in this area could be the key to future prevention and better management. Arroyo states, “We are using the latest technological tools (Robo-gut) and methods to tackle this issue. The results could have far reaching impact to the international equine population.”

Just-released 3-year study cites steamed hay as critical to preventing IAD, a stealth equine ailment that affects over 80% of horses.

Inflammatory Airway Disease affects huge numbers of horses and often goes undetected while impacting their performance. A three-year research project published by The Journal of Veterinary Internal Medicine expands extensive past research confirming IAD’s prevalence. Older studies identify over 80% of the general horse population as having it. Conducted by a group of equine sports medicine veterinarians in Belgium, this new research studied over 700 active sport horses referred for performance issues or possible respiratory problems:  88% were diagnosed with IAD.
