The Equiery added 5 new photos.

This time last year, we were freezing cold, on location at Greenmount Farm, in the beautiful Baltimore countryside, for the filming of DBM Productions' "CHRISTMAS RANCH". We met the cast, and had the great fortune of watching a scene be taped. Here are Associate Editor, Katherine Rizzo's, photos from that day. Check them out, and check out the premiere of CHRISTMAS RANCH, at The Senator Theater, on Thursday evening! Great way to kick off your holiday!

All Bets Off wins $100,000 Potomac Pace

Last Tuesday, All Bets Off captured the inaugural $100,000 Potomac Pace at Rosecroft Raceway in Fort Washington. Driven by Matt Kakaley, All Bets Off won by a nose over Split the House and tied Nuclear Breeze’s 2007 track record timed in 1:48:2. The Potomac Pace was the first race at the historic Rosecroft in nearly 10 years to offer a $100,000 or more purse. Split the House took the early lead around the first turn and continued out in front around the backstretch. Shamballa, the 9-56 favorite, tried to swing wide but posed no serious challenge. Kakaley eased All Best Off off the rail for the stretch and steadily wore down Split the House at the wire. “It was absolutely perfect,” Kakaley said after the race. “Coming off the turn, I thought I’d get right by, but Split the House was real game though.” Kakaley added that this race might be All Bets Off’s final race. “He’s had a great career. I think the plan is for him to go off to stud,” he stated....

How Efforts To Stop Big Lick Soring Could Affect You & Your Sport Horse

Think efforts to stop the soring techniques used by a small handful of horse trainers in the deep south to produce the exaggerate “big lick” of Tennessee Walking Horses doesn’t affect you? Think again – AND thank your farrier, if your farrier happens to be a member of the American Farrier Association. And never forget the mantra, “The road to hell is paved with good intentions.” Living in a state adjacent to our nation’s capital, most Marylanders are accustomed to the current ongoing debate within serious media: the creation of laws via the legislative process vs. the making of laws via government agencies. Who would think this debate would touch our world?  Yet it does, and it is an example of how good intentions can go awry. Good Intentions Most of our readers are familiar with the federal legislation known as the PAST Act. The “Prevent All Soring Tactics Act,” is intended to strengthen the existing Horse Protection Act (HPA) and prevent the soring of Tennessee Walking Horses, Racking Horses, and Spotted Saddle Horses, specifically to ban the soring techniques used on some Tennessee Walking horses to gain an advantage in the show ring in some classes, particularly where the horse is asked to do the famous “big lick” walking gait. The PAST Act is supported by the American Horse Council, American Association...

5 Confirmed Cases of Potomac Horse Fever

According to  Dr. Michael Radebaugh, the Maryland State Veterinarian & Chief of Animal Health, Potomac Horse Fever has been confirmed in five Maryland horses this summer, as of press time. The first two horses were confirmed in Frederick County in late July; one of them died. Since then and as of press, there have been three more confirmed cases, one each in Frederick, Montgomery and Washington Counties. All responded well to treatment. According to Dr. Radebaugh all five horses had been vaccinated for Potomac Horse Fever. Samples have been sent to University of California, Davis, School of Veterinary Medicine to determine which of the 11 strands of PHF these might be, with the hope that useful data will be yielded for the vaccine manufacturers. In the meantime, until the first frost, all Maryland horse owners (but particularly those whose horses graze near rivers, creeks and streams) should be extra vigilant for early signs of the disease. Clinical signs include mild to severe fever, diarrhea, loss of appetite, laminitis, and mild colic. Potomac Horse Fever is most commonly contracted by horses that ingest infected aquatic insects such as caddisflies and mayflies. “Potomac Horse Fever surfaces here every few years,” said State Veterinarian Michael Radebaugh. “Because it can be fatal, we urge horse owners to pay special attention to how their horses feel. The vaccine for Potomac Horse Fever...
