Orphan Foal is Lucky to Survive
Tiny three day old Geronimo the little orphan foal with the big name is lucky to be alive. He survived two days alone in his field before help came after his mother got into serious difficulties when giving birth to him.
Geronimo
ILPH (International League for the Protection of Horses) Head Groom, Chrissie Foley said, "When I arrived he was tottering around amongst the trees and his mother was down, unable to get up and in severe pain. Unfortunately we had to put her to sleep but I managed to extract some of her milk and the foal, Geronimo as we have called him, took to it straight away."

11th August 2001 Show Jumping Gets Underway At NAYRC
USA Equestrian (formerly AHSA) announced today that the first competitions toward the individual medals in both the show jumping Championship division and the Junior-Young Rider (JY) division at the 2001 FEI North American Young Riders' Championships sponsored by State Line Tack began on Thursday, August 9, 2001. The Championships run through August 12th at Tempel Farm, Wadsworth, IL.
Thirty-five riders in the Championship division contested the challenging track set by Guillherme Nogueira Jorge of Brazil. Many riders had trouble with the combination set late in the course requiring riders to ride past the in-gate. The location, combined with the airy nature of the jumps caused a number of stops and several unplanned dismounts. Most show jumping riders in the United States are unfamiliar with FEI rules, and the riders who fell off did not realize they could remount and continue as is allowed in an FEI Championship.

11th August 2001 Support the Zane Schulte Memorial Trainer Of The Year Award
The Zane Schulte Trainer of the Year Award has been established in honor of Zane Schulte’s memory. After our precious son made his transition to a heavenly life in June of 2000, Tom and Barbra Schulte decided to honor his memory by creating an annual award for professional trainers in the cutting industry. The spirit of the award is to honor a trainer who serves the industry through leadership, integrity, service or any combination thereof. It is a humanitarian award. It is not about arena earnings and the trainer does not have to be a high profile one, although he or she might be.

Thursday 23rd - Sunday 26th August 2001
Bowmore Blair Castle Horse Trials Attract Record Entries
Once again the Bowmore Blair Castle International Horse Trials have attracted record entries. A top class field of 200 riders from all over the world will compete in both classes of the three day event which takes place at Blair Castle from August 23rd to 26th.
Over 260 entries were received but, as director and organiser, Tim Hadaway explained, "It is impossible to run more than 100 in each class, especially on speed and endurance day on Saturday, when each horse takes nearly one-and-a-half hours to complete the four phases. It was therefore necessary to ballot out about 60 entries in the one star class to leave 105 running there and 95 in the two star, which did not require a ballot."
No fewer than three members of the British Olympic team from Sydney, Jeanette Brakewell, Ian Stark and Leslie Law have entered, while Rodney Powell who also travelled to Australia has Falcon Ebony in the two star class.

Equine Aromatherapy Weekend – Homeway Farm, Glastonbury
Saturday 6th October and Sunday 7th October 2001
Homeway Farm, Westhay Road, Meare, Glastonbury, Somerset BA6 9TL
Catherine Bird
This interesting weekend will begin with looking at how aromatherapy has developed to give the participant an understanding of the foundation behind the application of essential oils with horses. It is presented by Internationally acclaimed Equine Therapist, Catherine Bird.
Essential oils can have an effect on the body on many levels. We will discuss how the scent molecule can trigger a cascade of reactions throughout the entire body within nanoseconds of the stimuli reaching the hypothalamus gland. This can help address behavioural problems or issues developed from past experience. The physical body may be addressed with applications that assist the essential oil constituents to access the body via the bloodstream where eventually they are excreted from the body in a safe and effective manner.
The role aromatherapy has to play with the life of the horse is varied and there are certain situations where aromatherapy will enhance the environment and others where competition rules may restrict the use of essential oils. The participant will be made aware of the wonders and the limitations of this therapy in a sensible, commonsense approach.

Zena, Warrior, Princess
When Jade Bell (9) visited ILPH Overa House Farm, Larling as a birthday treat little did she think that the family would shortly return as competition winners. "It's the first time we have visited the centreº, says Jade, "I loved seeing all the rescued horses and ponies - it was really cool !"
ILPH
It was Ben Bell (12) who, realising that the mare was called Zena, suggested Warrior for a colt (boy) and Princess for a filly (girl) foal (after the tv programme Xena, Warrior Princess) and it was good enough for them to win !

Horslyx Horslyx Is Safe To Feed Ad-Lib Says Manufacturer Caltech
Following a warning issued by the BHS, quoting “disturbing evidence that horses have died from severe colic after swallowing so-called ‘horse licks’”, HORSLYX manufacturer Caltech has confirmed that its product is safe to feed ad-lib, as recommended.
HORSLYX is manufactured and marketed by Caltech - the only company marketing a molassed lick that actually manufactures its own product. It is also the only product manufactured by a unique, patented ‘cooking’ process - in a bespoke multi million pound plant, backed by a highly qualified and experienced nutritionist, Dr C.J. Lister.
The other manufacturing method for molassed feed blocks/licks uses chemical hardening agents, similar to agents used to harden concrete.

ELLENVILLE, NY (August 5, 2001)-U.S. Sydney Olympic Team Member Margie Engle and her Olympic mount Hidden Creek's Perin won the $100,000 Nevele Grande Grand Prix at HITS Catskills V in Ellenville, New York, today, besting a field of 36 that included three of her team mates and their Olympic mounts-Nona Garson and Rhythmical, Lauren Hough and Clasiko, and team alternate Todd Minikus and Oh Star. Engle, 43, of Wellington, Florida, and Hidden Creek's Perin also went up against another Olympic pair in the four-horse Jump-Off, U.S. Atlanta Team Silver Medallist Anne Kursinski and her Olympic mount Eros. Engle posted the only double-clear of the class. "Perin has so much scope and a really big heart," said Engle. "A lot of horses got backed off at the Olympics, but he got better and better. Like today-I could tell the heat was getting to him but he just digs down. He was really running and trying really hard. I can't say enough good things about him. He does it easily and he's a sweet, sweet horse around the barn and everywhere else. He's just fantastic." Hidden Creek's Perin is a 10-year-old Westphalian gelding owned by Hidden Creek Farm.

Naturally Paws Aromatherapy for animals - Learn how to use essential oils to help your horse.
Aromatic plants and oils have been used as an aid to health and well-being for thousands of years. More recently they have been developed for use in animals and have helped a wide range of conditions such as skin problems, allergies, training problems, stress and trauma. Each essential oil has an individual combination of constituents that interact with the body's chemistry in a direct manner, which in, turn can affect the bodily systems and stimulate the body to heal.

So how are they used in animals?
Georgia takes the oils
In a natural environment animals use their sense of smell to choose plants that will help them. This instinct is an important element of this system as the animal is invited to participate in its own healing by choosing which oils it would like. A short list of oils is selected based on a detailed history of the animal and an analysis of its character and habits. Each oil is then offered individually to the animal to smell. If the animal needs the oil it will either smell it intently for a few minutes or show signs of wanting to lick the oil bottle, or indicate in some way that topical application is required. Once the oils have been selected they are diluted in a base of vegetable or infused herb oil and applied as the animal has indicated.
