Senior Amateur Foal Photo Winner

It should probably be stated that if this photo by Judy Lalingo of Jarrettsville had a lot more room around the foal’s head, it could very well have been this year’s cover winner! Joanna Kelly’s Blue and White Royal, a Morgan filly by Gladheart Black Harris and out of Meridens Glory, by Caduceus Jesse, just shouted “foals” to all who saw it. The filly just looked fun with her big ears and wide eyes and mane going in every direction...

New USEA Requirements for BN & N 3Days!

This just in from the US Eventing Association! Effective August 1, 2018 the qualifications for the Beginner Novice and Novice Classic Three Day Events has changed to include the following: three horse trials at the same level or higher as the 3Day entered that meet the MERs (see below) plus one additional horse trials at the same level or higher with no more than 20 jump penalities two of these horse trials must be completed as the same horse and rider pair that is entering the 3Day these qualifications must take place within the 24 months prior to the start of the 3Day MERs (minimum eligibility requirement) are as follows: Dressage – no more than 50 penalty points Cross-Country – no jumping penalties and no more than 36-time penalties Show Jumping – no more than 16 jump penalties The changes have been made to insure that competitors at these levels are properly prepared for the classic three-day format. In the past, these levels only needed to complete four horse trials with any numerical score. There was no time limit to the requirements either and riders could have achieved these requirements on any number of different horses. USEA Classic Series Task Force Chair Gretchen Butts (Waredaca, Laytonsville) stated, “In the past, the Training and above competitors have been very prepared for this sort of...

2018 MHC Legislative Wrap-Up

(First appeared in the June 2018 issue of The Equiery) What do you get when you take 90 days + 47 Senators + 141 Delegates + 3,101 Bills?  You get the 2018 Maryland legislative session! The Maryland General Assembly convened on Wed. Jan. 10 and adjourned on Monday, April 9 – three months of nail biting high drama! It is not easy to pass legislation, and barely 28% of this year’s bills made it through the process; the system is intentionally deliberative – and that is a good thing, as it helps to avert capriciously enacted laws. To read more about the outcome of the session, click...

Potomac Horse Fever Detected in Maryland

From the Maryland Department of Agriculture – The Maryland Department of Agriculture received confirmation of a case of Potomac Horse Fever in a pony stabled in Frederick County from the University of Kentucky’s Equine Diagnostic Laboratory on August 2. The pony fell ill on July 26 and did not respond to treatment. The gelding died on July 30. A necropsy of the pony was performed at the Frederick Animal Health Laboratory on July 31. The Maryland Department of Agriculture is urging horse owners — especially those with horses that graze near rivers, streams and creeks — to watch their horses closely for signs of this disease. Clinical signs include mild to severe fever, diarrhea, dehydration, loss of appetite, laminitis and mild colic. Potomac Horse Fever is most commonly contracted by horses that ingest infected aquatic insects such as caddisflies, mayflies and dragonflies. “Potomac Horse Fever surfaces in Maryland every few years,” said Maryland Department of Agriculture’s State Veterinarian Dr. Michael Radebaugh. “With this summer’s heavy rains, pastures and meadows where equines graze are more likely to flood, increasing the chances that a horse could ingest these infected aquatic insects.” Equine owners are encouraged to keep horses off of flooded pastures, and to turn stable and barn lights off at night since the aquatic insects that carry this disease are attracted to bright light....
