Golden Spur Award Honors Paint Horse Association Founder
Rebecca Tyler Lockhart of Ryan, Okla., will receive the 26th annual National Golden Spur Award for her visionary work in establishing the American Paint Horse Association.
The award will be presented during a dinner, beginning with a 6 p.m reception and silent auction, on Sept. 20, at the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center, 1501 Sixth St. The Ranching Heritage Association hosts the event.

Entertainment will be provided by recording artists Waddie Mitchell and Don Edwards. The two have performed as "The Bard and the Balladeer" on concert stages throughout the nation and with such orchestras as the Lubbock and Fort Worth symphonies.
Lockhart was selected for the 2003 Golden Spur Award in recognition of her work to create, maintain and promote what was originally called the American Paint Stock Horse Association. It was under her guidance that the organization founders set the high breed standards for the Paint Horse.
"Looking back, what makes me happiest is seeing the APHA grow, seeing good horses, and seeing children and whole families enjoying them," Lockhart said. "I've just loved seeing the pleasure horses give to people and all the children who have gotten involved.
"The Paints were such underdogs," she added. "I felt compelled to rescue them. It was as if I was driven to do it. Once I got my friends involved by telling them it would work, I had to see that it did. It was one of those cases where 'He who rides the tiger cannot dismount.'"

Stellar competitor is first futurity champion to win derby
American Paint Horse RR Star shines at brightest magnitude after NRHA competition
FORT WORTH, Texas-American Paint Horse RR Star made reining history and continued to be a record-setter after winning the 2003 National Reining Horse Association (NRHA) Open Derby Finals at competition held May 13-18, at the Oklahoma State Fair Park in Oklahoma City, Okla.
The 5-year-old American Paint Horse stallion and rider Tim McQuay of Tioga, Texas, teamed up to win the derby with a score of 230-the highest score of this year's event. With a guaranteed paycheck of $50,000 for the victory, RR Star's lifetime earnings now total more than $222,000, and he is at the top of the NRHA All-Time Leading Horses list. McQuay, who was already NRHA's Leading Open Lifetime Money Earner, now has more than $1.6 million in NRHA earnings.

This was RR Star's second time in three years to become the most stellar competitor in NRHA world-class competition. In 2001, the sorrel overo won the NRHA Open Futurity, also held in Oklahoma City, and made history by becoming the first American Paint Horse to accomplish that feat. He now makes history again, by becoming the first NRHA Open Futurity Champion to win the NRHA Open Derby crown.

FEI Pony Classes at Dressage at Devon Prove Big Things Come in Small Packages
The classes will take place at the 29th annual Dressage at Devon, September 23 through September 29
Devon, PA – (May 28, 2003)—Dressage at Devon 2003 will be one of the first large dressage competitions in the United States to offer FEI, or international-level, competition classes for ponies. The classes are open to junior riders between the ages of 12 and 16. Dressage classes for ponies have a strong tradition of popularity at European competitions and have only recently begun to attract attention in North America. The first FEI Pony Division Class in North America was held at the FEI Dressage Championship of the Americas, at Blainville, Quebec, in August 2002.
“In Europe,” says Lendon Gray, who is well known for riding 14.3 hand Connemara/thoroughbred Seldom Seen to several national championships, “the ponies are humongous.” The classes are so important, she explains, because they may encourage children to get into dressage, have fun with it and become better riders, at a younger age. She points out that the quality and numbers of riders has increased tremendously since juniors have been encouraged to participate in dressage. Pony classes will, she hopes, help younger riders find their niche and give them an opportunity to compete against their peers.

Major animal welfare project gives new lease of life to Afghans
A major new animal welfare project launched by two British charities is transforming the lives of hundreds of Afghan families and the working horses and donkeys they depend on for survival.
Launched just two months ago, the jointly funded project by the Brooke Hospital for Animals and the World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA), provides free veterinary care for working equines in the southern Afghan city of Jalalabad, a training programme for the city's farriers as well as education for owners on basic equine care.
In addition, the project has just completed installing freshly pumped drinking water and troughs, the first in Jalalabad for working animals. Until now the nearest water supply was over three miles away and horses frequently died from heat stress as temperatures rose to over 40*C. The new watering facilities, at three carriage stands across the city, are proving to be lifesavers for people too: they are being used by the community, which itself has few fresh water facilities in Jalalabad.
The project employs specially trained vets from the local Afghan agency, Committee for Rehabilitation Aid to Afghanistan, to provide treatment for sick and injured working animals at five of the busiest horse and donkey carriage stands. Many of the animals treated so far have been substantially underweight, some in very poor condition. The reasons are badly overgrown teeth and heavy worm infestations and these problems are now the major priority for the veterinary work. Horses are also suffering from overgrown feet, which can cause severe lameness.
In Jalalabad, thousands of people work with horses and donkeys and, in the vast majority of cases, entire families depend on these animals for their livelihood. Both charities have had past experience of working with Afghan people but this is the first time both charities have been able to work directly with returning refugees inside Afghanistan to help rebuild their shattered lives.

FEI Eventing World Cup News
Bettina Hoy (GER), riding the 11-year old gelding Woodsides Ashby, won the ninth leg of the FEI Eventing World Cup held at the Rodderberg Park Derby (GER) from 22 to 24 May. She performed the qualifier's best Dressage test and cleared the 40 jumping efforts Cross Country course with no penalties. The pair's final score was 38.20 points.
Bettina's performance was all the more remarkable as she not only won the competition but also placed fourth with Unsung Hero scoring 48.20 points. "I am proud of both horses. Ashby has learnt a lot during this last year and is now much more confident in the Cross Country", Bettina Hoy said, who is consistently training towards participation in the 2004 Olympic Games.

This is her third World Cup qualifier after Martinvast-Cherbourg (FRA) in August 2002 and Chatsworth (GBR) two weeks ago. She is also a regular visitor at Rodderberg where she won in 1998 and 2001.
Andreas Dibowski (GER) on Little Lemon B tied with Hoy after the Dressage and Jumping Tests. He came in 20 seconds later following a highly exciting Cross Country and with 44.20 points took the runner up position. In a true spirit of horsemanship and fair play, Dibowski congratulated the winner and paid tribute to her brilliant victory. "The right rider won," he said.

The Suffolk Punch
The Suffolk Horse is always chesnut in colour (note the traditional spelling without the 't'), often accompanied with a star on the forehead, or a thin reach, blaze or shim down the face. No other colour is seen. There are seven recognised shades of chesnut: dark approaching brown-black, liver colour or mahogany chesnut, dull dark chesnut, light mealy chesnut, red, golden, lemon, bright chesnut. Although non standard, the preferred heights are between 16.1hh and 16.2hh for a mare, and 17hh to 17.1hh for a stallion. A mature horse can weigh between three quarters and a full tonne.
The Suffolk is shaped with great width in front and in the quarters. Its short legs and resulting low draught give it a direct pull on its vehicle. The impression is that the body is too big for the legs, giving the breed the nickname 'Suffolk Punch'.
The Suffolk shares a distinctness with the British Percheron of being the only clean-legged draught horse. The breed is famous for its docile disposition and young horses can be quickly schooled to perform any work. Early maturity means that many Suffolks are put to light work at two years of age and go into full work at three, working well into their mid-twenties. Easy keeping qualities are characteristic. Considering the weight and work performed, food consumption is small. The Suffolk can live on an allowance that would have starved the enormous dray horses of Liverpool and London, lasting for long hours without feeding as was practiced on farms.

Authorse reveal U.S. Remount Service had tremendous impact on horse industry
Dedicated horsemen lead the charge into military history with 'War Horse"

FORT WORTH, Texas-Today's U.S. military pilots strike enemy targets at supersonic speeds, while ground forces advance to the battlefront in sophisticated tanks that can traverse practically any type of terrain. In addition to their remarkable speed and range capabilities, these stealthy fighters can often complete their missions before they are ever detected by the enemy. Bring the U.S. Navy into the theater, and the military possesses a triple threat by air, land and sea that provides tremendous advantages during times of war.
It wasn't that long ago, however, that the horse supplied a strategic advantage and played a major role in helping the Untied States to defeat its enemies. From Revolutionary War times right on past the Spanish-American war in 1898, skilled horsemen were riding their strong mounts to victory, as the United States made steady progression as a world power.
After the turn of the 20th century, a group of knowledgeable and insightful individuals, determined to maintain and ultimately enhance their country's military advantage, devised a program to ensure that Americans would always have enough horses ready for any fight at any time. Strength in numbers was not their only concern. These military planners were also committed to establishing a national stable of military horses that were superior in intelligence, strength, stamina and soundness than those of any other nation.
This was the birth of the U.S. Remount Service, and is the primary focus of a fascinating new book, titled "War Horse," written by authors Ed Roberts and Phil Livingston.
