Rutledge Ribbons in Both CCIs at FHI

Sunday marked the conclusion of the 2017 Dutta Corp Fair Hill International with the show jumping phase for both the CCI2* and CCI3*. Colleen Rutledge of Frederick found herself jumping into the ribbons in both divisions. With UNO in the CCI2*, she jumped double clean to move from tenth up to sixth. The 15.2 hand mare also earned the “Small But Mighty” award for being the shortest equine to complete the CCI2*. In the CCI3*, Colleen and Covert Rights were the last to jump as they went into the final phase in the lead. Unfortunately, three dropped rails in the middle of the course moved them down to tenth overall in the FHI competition and seventh in the USEA CCI3* National Championship. Tamra Smith of California jumped double clean aboard Sunsprite Syrius to win the CCI2* division. Canada’s Selena O’Hanlon jumped clean with three time faults to move back into first place to win the CCI3* division. Will Coleman (VA) and Tight Lines jumped double clean to win the CCI3* national championship. As for the rest of the Maryland entries, Tayler Stewart had one rail down with Ideal Contini to finish in 20th place. Sidney Solomon and Easy Review C also had one drop railed but moved up to 28th. Grace Fulton and Wild Orange moved up to 35th with one rail down....

News from Capitol Hill

Federal Funding for Equine Therapy? This summer, the U.S. House of Representatives approved an amendment to the “Make America Secure Appropriations Act” (H.R. 3219) offered by Rep. Andy Barr (R-KY), a bill that will increase equine therapy funding for veterans by $5 million during FY2018. However, before the equine therapy provision becomes law, House and Senate lawmakers must convene a “conference” to negotiate final legislation for a vote in both chambers, and present the bill to the President for his signature. Your Help Needed To Keep Guest Worker Program The American Horse Council is urging horse people to advocate for legislative solutions to the federal government’s beleaguered temporary worker visa program.  In mid-January, the government hit the 33,000 visa cap for the first half of the year.  In March, the agency met its 33,000 visa allocation for the second half of 2017, leaving many small businesses who rely on seasonal labor without workers for the summer months.  Although DHS issued an additional 15,000 visas on July 17, the agency issued those visas on an ad hoc, discretionary basis, undermining common sense business planning.  The July decision will also create limited benefits for small businesses relying on summertime help. AHC requests that you tell lawmakers to support the Senate Bill 792 Save Our Small and Seasonal Businesses Act of 2017 (S. 792), a bipartisan bill which would establish...

Grant $$ available from MD Horse Industry Board

The Maryland Horse Industry Board is now accepting grant applications for research, educational and promotional projects that support horses or the equestrian community, or develop new opportunities for the Maryland horse industry. Application deadline is October 2. Among the organizations eligible for grants are non-profit organizations, clubs and associations, businesses, licensed farms and stables, government entities, schools and educational institutions. Projects of interest to the Board include (but are not limited to) those that develop new opportunities for the Maryland horse industry. Projects will be evaluated for their value to the industry, degree of industry promotion, size and scope of activity, financial need, potential for matching funds, benefits and quality of the written presentation. Grant requests should not exceed $3,000. The average grant amount is approximately $1,000. In 2017, 28 projects received $30,000 in grant allocations. Funding for these grants and for the Maryland Horse Industry Board is provided by the Maryland Feed Fund, which collects $6 on every ton of horse feed sold in Maryland. Since the fund was established in 2002, MHIB has awarded over $400,000 in grant monies to over 300 projects throughout Maryland. “Horses are a critical component to Maryland’s agricultural industry. The Maryland Horse Industry Board and The Feed Fund do a terrific job in helping to stimulate growth and opportunity in Maryland’s equestrian community—without using any government funding,”...
