Alexis Taylor Silvernale and Skyhawk Soar to Victory in the $10,000 USHJA International Hunter Derby
San Juan Capistrano, Calif. - The $10,000 USHJA International Hunter Derby kicked off a grand Saturday morning at the Rancho Mission Viejo Riding Park at San Juan Capistrano. After topping the first round, Alexis Taylor Silvernale and Skyhawk, owned by Aleron, LLC, continued to impress both judging panels in the Handy Round for the win in a challenging class. The honorable Bill Ellis and Christina Schlusemeyer judged as Panel One, and Scott Williamson sat with Mickey Maestro as Panel Two.

Thomas Hern of Plymouth, MA, once again set the course. A big, bold track, with four solid high options, the early morning course was challenging. More than a dozen of the thirty-four entries had a rail in round one.

Lantzman & Chello Z Win One For Dad in the Blenheim June Classic II Grand Prix
San Juan Capistrano, CA - As the temperature soared in Southern California, so did the four entries who battled it out in the jump-off of the $30,000 June Classic II Grand Prix, presented by ACE Equestrian. Congratulations go to Josephina Nor Lantzman and her own Chello Z, who, despite the heat, were blazing hot for the win.

FEI Course Designer Mauricio Garcia of Puerto Rico designed a tough track for the highlight class of twenty-six entries. Although he said that each jump could be a challenge, he noted that he always builds "one solid jump, one light jump, and one wide jump." On this course, the 'light' jump at fence four, a black and white jump with a black plank on top, lowered in height for quite a few riders. However, rails did fall throughout the course, as Garcia had predicted.

Glitter Done gets down in Mercuria
Adan Banuelos and Glitter Done marked 227.5 to prevail in a tight finish in the Mecuria NCHA World Series of Cutting Open finals at the Pacific Coast Derby Saturday. Lindy Burch on Stylish Bet and Gary Gonsalves on Reyzin The Cash both scored 227 to split second in the South Point Arena in Las Vegas.

Bred and owned by Susan Hearst, Glitter Done is a 9-year-old mare by Dual Smart Rey out of Tinsels Lady Cat, by High Brow Cat. She’s a half-sister to $103,000 earner Im Hal On Heels.

ANNE ALBERT WINS 2016 NRCHA DERBY NON PRO LIMITED CHAMPIONSHIP
Cliffhanger, thriller, close call, photo finish – any number of suspenseful adjectives could accurately describe the road to the Derby Non Pro Limited Championship for Anne Albert of Roy, Washington. It involved a tie, followed by another tie, the possibility of a co-Championship, and finally, a cow work-off to decide the title once and for all.

“I’ve always wanted to come to this horse show, and to come here the first time and win it – I’m ecstatic,” Albert said.

After the first two events, the rein work and herd work, Albert and her gelding, White Knight Time (One Time Pepto x Little Lady Stylish x Smart Little Uno), were tied for first place with Erin Mendes and Recklessly Abandoned (Smart Little Pepinic x Wright Now Ima Star x Lenas Wright On). Both riders had 424.5 composite scores. A third rider, Linda Wood, was just a half-point behind them heading into the third phase, the cow work.

SMOOTH N CASH, SHOWN BY JAKE GORRELL, WINS $50,000 ADDED CD SURVIVOR MEMORIAL BRIDLE SPECTACULAR AT NRCHA DERBY
Bridle Spectaculars at NRCHA Premier Events deliver some of the best cow horse action a reined cow hose fan will ever see. The bridle horses are the veterans of the NRCHA, with all the ingredients: talent, training and years of experience.

The CD Survivor Memorial Bridle Spectacular, named in honor of the late, great stallion owned by NRCHA sponsor Holy Cow Performance Horses, is a $50,000-added contest that never fails to thrill spectators, year after year.

A perennial crowd favorite horse rose to the top of the field of fourteen elite equines, ridden by the NRCHA’s most accomplished professionals, to win the Championship Friday, June 17, at the NRCHA Derby in Paso Robles, California.

SONYA DISTEFANO WINS 2016 NRCHA DERBY AMATEUR CHAMPIONSHIP
When Sonya DiStefano wrapped up her preliminary runs, scoring a 632.5 at the 2016 NRCHA Derby, she not only qualified for the Novice Non Pro finals – she also earned the Amateur Championship!

DiStefano, a 17-year-old from Calgary, Alberta, Canada, is showing in her first NRCHA Premier Limited Age Event on her first derby horse, who she has only been riding for a couple of months – but she didn’t let the pressure keep her from shining in the show pen.

“I was intimidated and nervous to come here for the first time, because I haven’t showed in a big derby, just our local ones. I just showed my horse like I did at home, and he was good,” the polite, soft-spoken teen said.

USDA Forest Service and Partners Gear Up for Significant 2016 Wildfire Season Current Outlook Underscores Need to Reform Wildfire Funding
WASHINGTON, D.C., MAY 17, 2016 AT 2:30 PM EDT - Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack and Forest Service Chief Tom Tidwell met today with Forest Service Regional Foresters to discuss preparations for anticipated significant wildland fire potential in 2016. The briefing comes as the 2016 fire season has begun with five times more acres already burned than this time last year, following 2015's record-setting fire season.

"The 2016 wildfire season is off to a worrisome start. Southern California, the Great Basin in Nevada, portions of the southwest, and even Florida and Hawaii are particularly vulnerable this year. In California, more than 40 million trees have died, becoming dry fuel for wildfire," said Vilsack. "Congress must take action now to ensure that we, and, ultimately the firefighters we ask so much of, have the resources to do the restoration and wildfire prevention work necessary to keep our forests healthy."

Forest Service Makes it Easier for Visitors to Enjoy National Forests and Grasslands
Announces Steps to Modernize Recreation Permitting Process

WASHINGTON, JUNE 17, 2016 AT 10:30 AM EDT - Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack and U.S. Forest Service Chief Tom Tidwell today announced steps to make it easier for outfitters, guides, schools, non-profits and other partners to take groups out to enjoy outdoor activities on national forests and grasslands. By streamlining the approach to special-use permitting for national forests and grasslands, our natural resources will be even more accessible to Americans.

"Our national forests and grasslands connect people to nature where they live, providing sustainable recreation opportunities for all Americans," Vilsack said. "The experience of enjoying these lands draws people closer to our vast natural resources and strengthens our connection to what our country has to offer. Today, we are taking steps to make it even easier for people to enjoy our public lands and reap the benefits of our forests, rivers and mountains."

U.S. Forest Service Names New Director To Oversee National Fire and Aviation Management Program
WASHINGTON, JUNE 17, 2016 AT 3:15 PM EDT - Shawna Legarza, who has earned more than 25 years of wildland fire management experience, has been tapped to serve as the National Director of Fire and Aviation Management for the U.S. Forest Service, Chief Tom Tidwell announced today.

Legarza, who serves as the Regional Director of Fire and Aviation in the Pacific Southwest Region, California, will take on the critical leadership role to help create resilient landscapes, fire adapted communities, while putting safety and lives first in responding to wildland fire. The Forest Service has managed wildland fire for more than 100 years. While fire is a natural process necessary for the maintenance of many ecosystems, in the past two decades, extreme wildfire behavior has escalated, accompanied by significant increases in risk to responders, citizens, homes and businesses, as well as suppression costs and threats to communities and ecosystems.

BLM Returns to Work in Gold Butte
Director Kornze and Local Leaders Visit Area

LAS VEGAS – The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is moving forward with plans to resume work in southern Nevada’s Gold Butte region. The Gold Butte area contains important habitat for Desert Tortoise and other species, and is home to world-renowned rock art and other ancient cultural sites. The region is also a popular destination for recreation enthusiasts who enjoy hiking, camping and exploring the area’s unique geology.

Due to safety and security concerns, BLM employees have not conducted field work in the Gold Butte area in northeastern Clark County since early 2014. With the support of the local community, BLM officials have determined that the conditions are now right to resume work. BLM archaeologists, law enforcement officers, and local agency leadership have all visited the area over the past month.

Dr. Ann Swinker Receives AHC’s 2016 Van Ness Award
On June 13, the American Horse Council presented the Van Ness Award to Ann M. Swinker, PhD of University Park, PA during the organization’s annual meeting in Washington, DC.

The National Day of the Cowboy is an event that is celebrated around the country, including right here in Amarillo. Local groups have joined forces to teach, entertain and celebrate the 6th annual National Day of the Cowboy with the public. The celebration takes place from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on July 23 at the American Quarter Horse Hall of Fame & Museum. This free event will provide entertainment for the whole family.

A highlight of the event will be the chance to ride an American Quarter Horse. This event has given over 1000 children in the last 5 years the opportunity to experience their first ride on an American Quarter Horse. This year’s test rides are part of a national Time to Ride marketing initiative by the American Horse Council called the 100-Day Horse Challenge. The goal of the Challenge is to increase awareness of the benefits of horse activities across the United States by aiming to engage at least 100,000 new people with an introductory horse experience.
