Inaugural Area II New Event Horse Champs Set in Maryland

First published in the January 2018 Equiery In addition to its recognized horse trials and three-day events, the U.S. Eventing Association offers a series of tests for young horses. Most people have already heard of the Future Event Horse (yearlings through three-year-olds) and Young Event Horse (four and five-year-olds) programs, both of which have year-end championships with competitions held across the country. Not many people, however, have heard of the New Event Horse Tests, which are designed to be an introduction to the sport of Eventing for horses of any age. Similar to the YEH tests, the NEH tests are comprised of three phases: Conformation and Type, Dressage, and Jumping/Galloping/General Impression. Although YEH competitions have dropped the Conformation phase this season, NEH will still offer this phase as an educational portion of the competition but it will not count towards the final score. “It’s a great way to get a professional assessment of your horse,” said Loch Moy Farm owner Carolyn Macintosh. Horses can be of any breed and any age, as long as they are within their first two seasons of competing at recognized events. According to the USEA’s NEH page, “The ultimate goal of the New Event Horse Series is to choose the horse that possesses the talent and mind set, and who with proper training, would be the horse most...

Holiday Gift: DOT Waives Mandate for Livestock Haulers for 90 Days

The livestock industry (including which includes us!) was relieved to learn that, on Nov. 27, the United States Department of Transportation granted a 90-day waiver from the requirement that to install electronic logging devices in vehicles. The waiver was a welcome holiday gift, as the mandate was supposed to begin on Dec. 18. Between now and March 18, DOT intends to look closely at agriculture’s request for an exemption while developing additional guidance for agricultural and livestock haulers. The waiver was granted in response to a petition last September from the American Farm Bureau, the American Horse Council and several other livestock organizations. In their request, the groups explained their two biggest concerns about the requirement: livestock haulers’ readiness to comply and the effect on the transported animals’ well-being. Drivers who have to use ELDs would be limited to current hours of service rules, which restrict a driver to only 14 “on duty” hours, with no more than 11 active driving hours. Once a driver hits those maximum hour allotments, he must stop and rest for 10 consecutive hours, which would be problematic when transporting livestock and other live animals. The petition referenced livestock haulers’ strong commitment to and track record of ensuring the safety of both the animals they’re transporting and the drivers they share the road with.  In addition, livestock haulers...

2,600 More Acres of Maryland Ag Land Preserved!

First published in the December 2017 Equiery In November, Governor Larry Hogan announced that the Board of Public Works approved the purchase of 16 easements protecting 2,618 acres of prime Maryland farmland in 11 counties for $9,223,273 in state funding. This approval brings the total farmland protected in perpetuity or approved by Board of Public Works by the Maryland Agricultural Land Preservation Foundation (MALPF) to 316,101 acres. The Board is comprised of the Governor, Treasurer Nancy K. Kopp, and Comptroller Peter Franchot. “Maryland has one of the strongest agricultural land preservation records in the nation. Each easement purchase proves our commitment to keep farming a viable and profitable industry in our state,” said Governor Hogan. “Working together, we can ensure a sustainable environment for future generations, preserve open space, and maintain the agricultural heritage of our state.” Created by the General Assembly in 1977, MALPF purchases agricultural preservation easements that forever restrict development on prime farmland and woodland, and has permanently preserved land in each of Maryland’s 23 counties, representing a public investment of more than $645 million. With county and other state preservation programs, more than 800,000 acres of farmland and resource land are protected by easements in Maryland. This is the greatest ratio of farmland preserved to total landmass of any state. And here is a fun fact…the legislator who penned...
