West Nile Virus
West Nile Virus (WNV) is a mosquito-borne virus first detected in the United States (U.S.) in the New York City area in 1999. Since 1999, the virus has spread throughout the U.S. and Canada, infecting birds, humans, horses, and other animals. As of 2015, more than 27,000 horses in the U.S. have been infected since the disease was first identified. The virus is maintained in the wild bird population and is spread between birds by mosquitos. Birds are considered the natural reservoir for WNV since high levels of virus circulate in their bloodstream. Mosquitos acquire WNV in blood meals from infected birds and pass it on to other birds, animals, and people. Mosquitos that feed on an infected horse or human have not demonstrated the ability to ingest enough of the virus to transmit it to other animals or humans; therefore, horses and humans are considered “dead end hosts.”

Cervi Chasing a 19th Wrangler NFR Berth, Wins Caldwell Title
Caldwell, Idaho—Rodeo fans are amongst the most loyal and dedicated in the entire sports world but there’s one place where the fans are actually part of the event itself. Every year at the Caldwell Night Rodeo, the spectators are divided into the “Civies" and the “Rowdys" and pitted against each other during each of the five performances in their own competition to see who can be the best at cheering on the professional rodeo athletes inside the arena.
“The crowds are always amazing,” notes four-time WPRA World Champion Sherry Cervi.

Dressage
Normal order restored as Germany takes Olympic Dressage team gold once again
Like re-booting to re-establish a connection, Germany clinched team Dressage gold in considerable style at the Olympic Equestrian Park in Deodoro today. Germany has now won eight of the last nine Olympic team Dressage contests - with only Great Britain spoiling the party on home soil in 2012 - and today’s result brings the Germans overall tally to 13 sets of Olympic team golds.

Already looking like the ones to beat after topping yesterday’s Grand Prix, they stamped their authority all over today’s deciding Grand Prix Special with a team total of 81.936. Great Britain had to settle for silver with 78.595 while Team USA, posting 76.667, fended off the Netherlands for bronze. It was a tough day for the Dutch who lost out on a podium placing by a margin of just 1.15 percentage points.

Fabulous French win Eventing team gold; Germany’s Jung takes second successive individual title
France claimed team gold and Germany’s Michael Jung took his second successive individual title as Olympic Eventing drew to a close at Deodoro Olympic Park in Rio de Janeiro (BRA) today.

Team

In a cliff-hanger of a contest it came down to the last four into the arena to decide the team result, and it was the defending champions from Germany who claimed silver with Australia slipping from the overnight lead to take the bronze.

The Australians were in charge as the day began, but with only a 4.5 point advantage over their New Zealand neighbours while the French were just 6.2 further adrift and the Germans were stalking the leading pack over 11 penalty points further behind. France was the only one of the leading sides to go into today’s closing phase with a fully intact four-member team however, and in the end that proved the clincher.

Fighting French fly to victory in Olympic Team Jumping final
France claimed Team Jumping gold for only the second time in the history of the Olympic Games with a brilliant performance at Deodoro Olympic Park in Rio de Janeiro (BRA) today. Lying only a single penalty point behind the joint-leaders from Brazil, Germany, Netherlands and USA after yesterday’s first round of competition, they added just two time faults to clinch it this afternoon.

Silver went to Team USA who completed with five faults while Germany won out in a thrilling two-way jump-off against Canada for the bronze. This is only the second French team gold in the history of Olympic Jumping, the first won at Montreal (CAN) in 1976 where the side included Jean-Marcel Rozier whose son, Philippe, was French pathfinder today. “My father was here in Rio, and we are all feeling very proud to have another gold medal in our family!”, Philippe said this afternoon.

Explosive Canter Departures: Learning to let go and allow the horse to move forward
I've learned to recognize the signs of the horse who's afraid of the canter departure. I've seen it many times throughout my career: A "forward" horse (with too much go) works just fine with the rider at the walk and trot, but when cued to canter throws a wall-eyed fit.

To me, an "explosive" canter departure is one where the horse--when cued to canter--throws his head up in an emotional fit, grabs the bit and takes off at a gallop (crow hopping and bucking as he runs increasingly faster). Often the horse will settle into a nice steady canter after 6-8 strides of crow hopping if you ride through the initial drama. That is the hallmark of the horse that is afraid of the cue--it's not cantering that bothers him, it's just the moment of departure.

The California Cowboy- SEX AND MURDER IN THE DESERT by Jim Nichols
The California Cowboy- SEX AND MURDER IN THE DESERT by Jim Nichols

“What are you writing about Honey?” my wife asked as I feverishly pounded away on my 40 year old Olympia typewriter I keep at my remote ranch in the High Sierra Mountains. “Um I’m writing about how to prepare Cowboy Jim mountain oysters” I lied hoping she wouldn’t hover over me and see I was writing about sex and murder in the desert. “Bridle and Bit is a respectable family oriented magazine so don’t say anything which could offend” she cautioned. “Never” I again lied. Here is the deal my faithful readers (all three of you). When I get a story in my head it starts banging like a church bell until I get it out. I know Bridle and Bit is written to and for the horse community. This piece is obliquely grounded in the world of cowboys, Indians, western museums, parades and collectibles. It is venued in the desert and mountains north of Los Angeles. The events are true. One must appreciate memory fades with time but I’m laying it on the plate as accurately as I can.

The Tale of Zenyatta is Worth Hearing Again and Again
John Shirreffs calls it his Camelot, those days from late 2007 to late 2010 when he was the keeper of a flame that burned so brightly that it set the Thoroughbred racing world aglow with enthusiasm not seen since the sport’s Triple Crown heydays of Secretariat, Affirmed and Seattle Slew.

Referencing Camelot always triggers this: “One shining moment.” In John’s Camelot it was “one shining moment after another shining moment after another …” You know what’s coming. Those multiple moments revolved around the great race mare Zenyatta – 20 in all.
