AM I TOO FAT TO RIDE A HORSE
AM I TOO FAT TO RIDE A HORSE
By Colin Dangaard

Maybe, maybe not. A “scientific study” has concluded that a horse cannot comfortably carry more than 10 percent of its own weight. I have been looking for the punch line ever since: obviously this is a joke! This would mean 80 percent of the people riding horses today are too fat!

According to THE U.S.CAVALRY MANUAL OF HORSE MANAGEMENT (1941) a horse should not carry more than 20 percent of its own weight. This edict was routinely exceeded, soldier and equipment regularly weighing 250 lbs.

Researchers at Duchy College, in Cornwall, England, studied horse impact from 50 riders executing 45-minute workouts and they too came up with the 20 percent recommendation. This was ascertained by monitoring the release of creatine kinase, an enzyme present in the muscle and released into the blood to restore muscle damage. This enzyme is triggered when an increasing heart rate releases plasma lactate to levels the horse’s body cannot metabolize.

Of course, the scientists noted that impact on the horses varied greatly. Those with wider loins and thicker cannon bones recovered more quickly. Experienced riders know FIT of saddle is vital.
For most of the 5,000 years men have been riding horses they have used them to go places to kill each other. Pleasure riding, as we know it today, is barely 100 years old!

Record-breaking fundraising continues to transform Colorado State University

FORT COLLINS - Colorado State University alumni, friends and other supporters once again have backed the University in record-breaking fashion, donating a combined $172.3 million for the fiscal year that ended June 30.

The total shatters the previous fundraising record of $143.3 million set last year, and gives CSU four consecutive years of record fundraising. In addition, CSU saw the largest single cash gift in University history and set a record for total donors – more than 34,000 – along with its best-ever alumni participation, 10.34 percent. Even as the state of Colorado has worked to bolster its support for higher education, private donations to the University continue to greatly exceed public support from the state.

The Spirit of the Agrarian Creed By Stewart Truelsen
The Spirit of the Agrarian Creed
By Stewart Truelsen

Americans are familiar with the Declaration of Independence and U.S. Constitution, but there was another set of principles the Founding Fathers held closely, although they never formally adopted them.

Those principles are the agrarian creed, also known as the agricultural creed. The creed is usually traced back to Thomas Jefferson, who placed a high value on agricultural pursuits. Jefferson felt that farming was superior to other occupations and resulted in good citizenship. Therefore, the creed expressed the belief that a high percentage of Americans should live on farms.

USDA Announces Conservation Incentives for Working Grass, Range and Pasture Lands
USDA Announces Conservation Incentives for Working Grass, Range and Pasture Lands

WASHINGTON – Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack today announced that beginning Sept. 1, farmers and ranchers can apply for financial assistance to help conserve working grasslands, rangeland and pastureland while maintaining the areas as livestock grazing lands.

The initiative is part of the voluntary Conservation Reserve Program (CRP), a federally funded program that for 30 years has assisted agricultural producers with the cost of restoring, enhancing and protecting certain grasses, shrubs and trees to improve water quality, prevent soil erosion and reduce loss of wildlife habitat. In return, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) provides participants with rental payments and cost-share assistance. CRP has helped farmers and ranchers prevent more than 8 billion tons of soil from eroding, reduce nitrogen and phosphorous runoff relative to cropland by 95 and 85 percent respectively, and even sequester 43 million tons of greenhouse gases annually, equal to taking 8 million cars off the road

GET YOUR REBEL OUT By Barry Denton
GET YOUR REBEL OUT
By Barry Denton


The Calgary Stampede disqualifies Tuf Cooper for spanking his horse at their rodeo. What many non horsemen do not realize is that horses will occasionally take advantage of you in a high pressure situation. This appeared to be the case with Tuf and Topaz, but the rodeo officials in Canada saw it differently. Pretty ridiculous in my book, but Tuf will have to be a little more controlled next time around. Perception instead of substance seems to prevail these days thanks to an over sensitive and self aggrandizing media. Tuf Cooper, being the class act that he is, left the rodeo without incident. It would have been a great time to make a statement, but he did not.

FEI Tribunal lifts provisional suspensions on Guerdat and Bichsel

The FEI Tribunal has lifted the provisional suspensions on Swiss Jumping riders Steve Guerdat and Alessandra Bichsel, following preliminary hearings for the two riders at the end of last week. The lifting of the provisional suspensions will come into force today, 27 July at midnight CEST (Swiss time).

The FEI Tribunal’s decision is mainly based on the scientific evidence presented by the persons responsible (the athletes) which suggests the likelihood of food contamination.

Both riders had been provisionally suspended after horses on which they were competing tested positive for prohibited substances, including banned substances.

I-10 Bridge Collapse Highlights Why Arizona Must Protect and Grow Infrastructure Funding
I-10 Bridge Collapse Highlights Why Arizona Must Protect and Grow Infrastructure Funding

Despite AZAGC's efforts to educate politicians on the importance of infrastructure, funding has been dormant for years

(PHOENIX, AZ) In addition to the economic setback our state will suffer from the recent I-10 bridge collapse, Arizona's infrastructure will continue to deteriorate, making our roads and highways less safe for Arizona families.

Despite the efforts of the Arizona Chapter of the Associated General Contractors (AZAGC) to educate elected officials on the need to protect and grow infrastructure funding, politicians continue to kick the can down the road on funding.

Instead of investing in infrastructure, politicians have raided $1.9 billion from the Highway User Revenue Fund (HURF), funding dedicated to improving the safety and efficiency of Arizona roads and highways.

CSU expert: Wet spring, high mosquito numbers could mean more West Nile virus
CSU expert: Wet spring, high mosquito numbers could mean more West Nile virus

FORT COLLINS - Scientists at Colorado State University have detected a notably high number of Culex mosquitoes in northern Colorado this season, which could translate into high infection rates of West Nile virus. But so far there is no indication that the virus is spreading quickly from mosquito populations to birds, horses or people.

A wet spring and summer and the resulting large mosquito population create high potential for the spread of the virus, but to date it has turned up in only a small number of mosquito samples, according to a CSU expert.

Still, public health agencies advise precautions. Key steps include draining standing water in the yard and garden; wearing long sleeves and pants, especially from dusk through dawn, when mosquitoes are most active; and using insect repellent with DEET. For more tips, visit the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment’s “Fight the Bite” website.

The Secret? Keep It Simple! By Juliet M. Getty, Ph.D.
The Secret? Keep It Simple!
By Juliet M. Getty, Ph.D.

We know they’re out there. Horses who are enjoying life. Horses who are brimming with health – strong muscles, shiny coats, hard hooves, good digestion, normal metabolism, strong immune function – just plain healthy! How does this happen? What is it about their care and feeding that gives them such wellbeing?

We’re always searching for answers. Our typical approach is to study sick horses. But that only helps us to understand disease. We look at fat horses to understand fat horses. We look at horses with pain, metabolic problems, and digestive ailments to understand those who are experiencing the same hardships. While such research is worthwhile, wouldn’t it also make sense to evaluate fit, hearty horses so we can strive to make our own horses be more like them? Shouldn’t we be looking at what healthy horses experience?

Here’s the basic “recipe” for a healthy horse:

Avoid feeding excess calories. Obesity is a real problem and it comes from piling on the calories, combined with lack of physical activity. Forage should be the dietary staple and it should flow steadily throughout the horse’s entire gastrointestinal tract. Pounds and pounds of concentrated feeds can shorten a horse’s lif

The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono Celebrates 50th Anniversary

WILKES-BARRE, PA – On July 15, 1965, a $7 million harness racing track named Pocono Downs first opened its doors in Northeast Pennsylvania. Thousands of fans were on hand as Satin Queen was the first to cross the finish line on that sultry summer night.

Fifty years later that track, now called The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono, continues to host exhilarating harness racing several nights a week from March through November. To honor its past and look to its future, The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono celebrates its Golden Anniversary with a week of events for racing fans and the community alike.

The week-long celebration kicks off on Saturday, August 15th with the Budweiser Clydesdales appearing from 4:00pm to 6:00pm on the track apron. Meet and have your photo taken with these iconic horses for $5.00, and all proceeds will be donated to Marley’s Mission, an organization that provides free equine-based therapy to children and their families that have experienced trauma. The Clydesdales will then promenade on the racetrack during live harness racing which starts at 6:30pm.

AIR SUSPENSION KITS FROM AIR LIFT COMPANY
SUPPORT 2015 FORD F-450 SUPER DUTY TOWING NEEDS

LANSING, Mich. - With a best-in-class maximum 31,200-pound tow rating, the big and burly 2015 Ford F-450 Super Duty is built to tackle the toughest non-commercial towing duties, from fifth wheel campers to large livestock and boat trailers. Now, to increase towing safety and ride comfort for this serious workhorse truck, the air suspension specialists at Air Lift Company offer two durable, easy to install air spring options.

Air Lift's LoadLifter 5000TM air spring kit for the F-450 (#57349) provides a cushion of air and works with the existing suspension to deliver up to 5,000 pounds of load-leveling capacity and eliminate sagging and bottoming out. These fully adjustable air springs keep the F-450 stable, level and comfortable whether loaded or unloaded.

For maximum shock protection, the LoadLifter 5000TM ULTIMATE (#88349) eliminates the harsh jarring of rough roads while leveling the F-450 when towing or hauling heavy loads. Featuring rugged, durable components, both of these Air Lift underframe kits work with most in-bed hitch configurations and can be easily installed in approximately two hours with no drilling into the vehicle's frame required.
