Peter Pletcher Wins Chronicle Professional WCHR Hunter Rider Title At Capital Challenge
By Diana De Rosa
Peter Pletcher took a moment to take it all in after he won the 2002 Chronicle of the Horse Professional World Championship Hunter Rider title. The Challenge was sponsored by Carol & Gordon Stillwell, Stillwell Hansen, Inc. and Jack Schock and First Savings Mortgage Corporation, presented by the American Hunter Jumper Foundation (AHJF) and hosted on October 4, during the eight-day Capital Challenge Horse Show at the Prince George's Equestrian Center in Upper Marlboro, MD.
Four riders qualified for the final competition: Sandy Ferrell, Churchville, MD; Scott Stewart, Flemington, NJ; Emily Williams, Wellington, FL and Pletcher, Magnolia, TX. He and the others had competed in this class before and felt that "doing it before helped. Emily was more nervous because this was her first time." For Pletcher it was his third try and his first victory. "I'm really glad," he admitted. "I've wanted to win this class ever since they started it. It's a very special class for me to win."
The riders alternated on riding four different horses which they had not ridden before. These included Special Delivery, a 12-year-old grey Dutch gelding by Largos owned and trained by Geoff Teall; Notra Dame, a 7-year-old Dutch Warmblood mare owned by Megan McGuire, and trained by Amanda Steege-Herrara; Capito, a 10-year-old chestnut Warmblood gelding, owned by Karen Healey; and Gandolf, a 10-year-old bay, Hanoverian gelding, owned by Sue Grange and trained by Don Stewart.

Horses and Fireworks - An Explosive Combination
A leading horse welfare charity is putting out a warning to all those holding events involving fireworks this November 5th to please inform local horse owners.
The ILPH (International League for the Protection of Horses) is appealing to everybody organising a firework event, whether a big display or a just a happy gathering in a back garden, to make sure that they give horse owners in their area advance warning.

Says Nadine Hawkes, Operations Support Manager at the ILPH, "Most people look forward to bonfire night, but for horse owners it can be a worrying time. Many horses and ponies can become stressed and upset by both the sight and sound of fireworks going off and if they are out in their fields it could have tragic consequences."

GLC 5500 Is The Latest In Joint Care
American Thoroughbred Products Ltd has recently launched the latest development in joint care supplements in the UK. GLC 5500 is the first joint supplement to offer a combination of the full spectrum of bio-available glucosamine compounds plus chondroitin sulphate whose functions have already been clearly established.
This new, patent pending formulation provides only active ingredients in significant concentrations, verified using United States Pharmacopoeia testing protocols, with no binders or fillers. GLC 5500 optimises cell membrane function to facilitate the transfer of ingredients to the joints for maximum uptake and absorption, providing the foundation for optimal joint health.
GLC 5500 has already been hugely successful in the USA and is widely used by top trainers and veterinary surgeons. Martha Rodgers, equine lameness specialist at Rood & Riddle Veterinary Hospital, Lexington, Kentucky said "GLC's exclusive formula takes a logical approach to oral joint supplementation. The higher concentrations provide the proper ratios to benefit developing and mature cartilage."
Michael Dickinson, three times champion NH trainer in the UK, has been training in the USA since 1987. He says "GLC 5500 made a major contribution to my 39% win rate last year (2001), which included three Group 1 winners".

"Doing A Little Good"
"When was the last time we did a little good?" This is the conscience-pricking question a little coffee-table book from Singapore seems to be asking its readers. Commissioned by Siemens Singapore, 'Doing A Little Good' is a surprisingly polished publication with a chic design of black & white photographs and interestingly engaging text. To think this book has been produced by a student team at the School of Film & Media Studies, Ngee Ann Polytechnic. True to their experience, this book reveals the story of the team of writers and photographers who wandered into RDA Singapore to tell its story. It was work. But the culture shock of the mundane confronting a simple good offered a refreshing wake-up call for the team. It was as if everyday people had ventured into an alien utopia of pure altruism. It's the same experience many people will feel if they allow themselves to volunteer, to do something other than for themselves, to do a little good.

At the Riding for the Disabled Association (RDA Singapore), these occasions of kindness and giving are de rigueur, actually commonplace. RDA Singapore freely assists disabled persons to gain balance, movement, muscle tone and self-confidence from learning to ride a horse. Founded in 1982, RDA Singapore started with just 5 riders, and today, helps more than 100 disabled riders every week. A registered charity, RDA Singapore relies entirely on volunteers to run the therapeutic riding program, and donations from the public to meet operating expenses.

Cold weather will soon be upon us.
Cold feet solutions

The "Chill" range of Equitector riding boots is the best solution to cold feet problems on offer to riders!
They are superior to any other cold weather boot available on the market and perform superbly.
The technology applied is the same as that in the boots which we manufacture for the use in cold storage facilities (deep freeze storage rooms) and they are guaranteed to keep your feet warm to minus 25 C.
The award winning Chill Buster and Chill Master Riding Boots with Climate Control are very different from other winter boots.

They are not thermally lined but have an unique heat reflective membrane attached to the lining and insole making an insulative interior, that will keep your feet at body temperature in all weathers.
The foot temperature will remain constant because the body heat is trapped inside the boot and can not escape into the atmosphere. The foot is fully enclosed and will no longer be affected by the outside temperature and will not overheat. Therefore when the outside temperature rises, because there is no climate change inside your boot, you will not get sweaty feet.
In fact the system works in reverse in hot weather and keeps your feet cool.

How Equine Reiki Helped Cloudy
Cloudy for me was by no means an unusual case. Until recently he had been at a very good and professionally run riding school. However, he had picked up an injury that had rendered him unable to work and the owner had sent him away for a bit of rest and recuperation to see if it would help. I first saw him when he had been resting for 3 weeks. The owner had come to the conclusion that cloudy was not happy in the riding school and thought he would be better off in a private home.
There were several things that were apparent about Cloudy.
1. There was a "stirring" action with the right hind leg that would have made it impossible to pass a vetting.
2. He was roach backed.
3. He could not cross through when spun in a circle in either direction.
4. He could not stand with his hind legs square.
5. He seemed generally quite depressed despite the 3 weeks of freedom.

Tendencies of the Typical Horse out on the Trail
Horses are definitely unpredictable animals, and that is what makes trail riding such a dangerous sport. Just the same, there are a few things that seem to hold true for most horses in most situations. Of course, there are always exceptions to the rules, and sometimes a predictable horse will do something very
uncharacteristic. Here are a few things to keep in mind when you wonder how your horse will act in a particular situation. They can help you know what to expect and guide you to make safe decisions.

IAHA Riders Win Back-to-Back National Trail Championships
Last year's champions in the International Arabian Horse Association (IAHA) National Competitive Trail Ride Championship repeated their victories in 2002. Ellen Schwartz and her Arabian mare Shazanna S Glory and Chris Eickleberry and her Half-Arabian/ Half-Appaloosa gelding WR Cowboy, won second championship trophies at the 2002 two-day, 72-mile ride held at Big Hill Lake State Park in Cherryvale, Kansas, over Labor Day weekend. Their lucky charm? Togetherness. Last year they rode together. This year the two Indianans took it a step further. They drove together, camped together and won together.
Not only was good fortune smiling on Schwartz and Eickleberry, but the homework the pair did weeks before the ride paid off. "We practiced camping the month before," says Eickleberry, who lives in Columbus, which is approximately 170 miles from Monroe where Schwartz lives. "We set up our pens and trailered our horses together to make sure they got along. Then we took two days to get to the ride and arrived early on Wednesday so the horses had time to relax."
They even had a plan to ease the tense moments that inevitably develop during a ride. "We're both alpha mares," jokes Eickleberry. "So we apologized to each other in advance."

Steps To Success For Your Horse Business
By Lisa Derby Oden
So you run a horse business. And you have noticed that some horse businesses come and go with the blink of an eye. You are determined that this will not
be the case for you. You are in this to stay, and are looking for the key to success. There are three key competency areas in running your horse business. These are technical skills, business skills, and process skills. Technical skills are those that revolve around the horses. Will you personally be providing the care? How experienced are you with horse care? Do you know the requirements for their good health? Can you recognize when something is wrong? Can you provide proper follow-up care for medical treatment when necessary? What is your experience level for riding/training? If you provide these services, do you seek ongoing education and development in the health/care/riding/training areas?
If you employ someone to handle any of these services, are they trained in these areas? Do they pursue ongoing education? Horse owners and riders are more educated than in the past. This is wonderful because it means that they are more deeply involved and that resources are more readily available. It also
means they will ask more challenging questions and will be more particular in choosing health/care/riding/training providers. It is up to you to be up
to the challenge.
