High tech pad for high performance.

After introducing the Sedelogic® saddle pads to the US horse industry in 2013, Vitafloor USA, along with another partner, acquired the high-tech pad last year.

Sedelogic saddle pads were developed by a veterinarian in Europe with the objective of achieving significant and verifiable improvements to the welfare and performance of horses in high-impact sports disciplines. They specifically looked at performance problems associated with significant pain in the horse’s back and this research included the world’s first pressure measurement under the saddle, while jumping a course. These studies led to the development of a machine-washable and breathable, three-dimensionally woven polyester fiber that is manufactured in two thicknesses (12 & 15 mm) and is clinically proven to distribute pressure and absorb shock up to 50% during peak pressure measurement.

Next year my New Year’s resolution is going to be cloning myself at least three ways. Last month in Southern California, the third weekend of January had three great educational events taking place concurrently, and we could only get to two: the USHJA’s Emerging Jumper Rider Gold Star Clinic with Katie Prudent and the California Dressage Society’s Annual Meeting and Health Fair. It helped that the Gold Star Clinic began on a Thursday, so we hit two days of that at HITS Coachella, then to Anaheim for the CDS get-together. I was sad to miss the Galway Downs eventing clinic headlined by chef d’equipe Erik Duvander and Ian Stark, along with 20-plus local eventing celebrities. Fortunately, participating young rider Kelsey Holmes has agreed to report on her experience for our March issue.

American horse lovers are in for a treat as award winning film DESERT FLIGHT is now available to stream on demand via the USEF Network. The 39-minute documentary film explores the horse-human bond through the eyes of a group of equestrians from differing walks of life.

Shot on location at the HITS Coachella Desert Circuit, the stars of the film include Richard Spooner, Will Simpson, Mandy Porter, Rich Fellers and of course his legendary mount Flexible among others. These famous riders share how horses have contributed to their lives and provide insight on their burning desire to compete, earning the picture the subtitle of “a love letter to the sport of show jumping.”

Using Equiwinner™ on horses in trailers helps them adjust to different climates and with stress during transport.

If you travel to compete, you know that transporting horses can be fraught with challenges. One challenge is that all horses are stressed by travel even if you tell them your vehicle is road ready and they’re going south for the winter or back home after being away from their buddies. And that stress can affect their behavior, their health and their ability to perform at their normal level. They also might not drink well enough to stay hydrated.

Sharing the love of horses with your offspring.

From the time he could toddle, whenever there was the opportunity, I would put my son, Benjamin, atop ponies. Round little chestnut miniature horses at the farmer’s market. A grey Welsh pony in rainy England. Tucked in front of me on a beach trail horse.
