Happy #EarthDay!

Our planet is certainly blessed with lots of incredible species, but let’s not forget that not all of them mix successfully. For example, did you know that the plants listed below (many of which are extremely common) are toxic to horses?

The good news is that a 1,000-pound horse has to consume significantly higher quantities of a toxic plant than a smaller animal to be affected clinically. However, some plants are cause for concern since even a curious nibble or repeated browsing over several weeks or months can lead to serious illness or even death. Therefore, it’s in your horse’s best interest that you learn to recognize poisonous plants so they can be promptly removed from your horse-keeping areas.

If you suspect your horse has ingested a poisonous plant:
• Remove the horse from the source.
• Contact your veterinarian immediately.
• Attempt to determine how much of the toxic plant was eaten and when it was eaten.

Pro tip: another commonly overlooked reason a horse may become poisoned, is allowing horses to graze a pasture after it has been sprayed with herbicide but before the weeds have died and disappeared.

As always, contact your veterinarian for more information and guidance!

How cold is too cold to ride?

Let’s start with your horse’s respiratory tract. The horse’s respiratory tract is designed to warm and humidify air by the time air reaches the lungs. Intense exercise (anything more than a walk) speeds up and deepens breaths so that air is not as warm or humid when it reaches the lungs which can cause damage to the lower respiratory tracts. It has been discovered in multiple studies that respiratory tracts in horses can become damaged by breathing cold air starting around 23 degrees Fahrenheit, damage to lower respiratory tracts was found 48 hours after exercise, including elevated white blood cell counts and inflammatory proteins as well as narrowing of the tracts.

Moving on to your horse’s cardiovascular system (heart). The cardiovascular system react to cold by increasing the blood pressure and heart rate. It also reduces the amount of blood that flows closest to the skin in order to preserve core body temperature. The reduced blood flow to the skin can lead to frostbite. This lack of blood leads to the eventual freezing and death of skin tissue in the affected areas. Again, it is probably wise to reduce the intensity of your ride so that your horse’s heart does not have to work so hard.

And last but not least your horse’s muscles and joints. Muscles take longer to warm up in the cold weather and arthritic joints may ache and need more time to loosen up. During exercise in the cold, your horse’s muscles require more energy at a faster rate in order for them to function as they would under less extreme conditions. The cold temperature effects the temperature of your horse’s muscles greatly affecting the muscles’ ability to contract. This can leave muscles more vulnerable to fatigue and strains, as cold muscles are less elastic and don’t absorb shock or impact as well as warm muscles. Cold muscles are also less responsive to signals from the nervous system so movements are less coordinated.

So in conclusion it is best to avoid exercise (trotting, cantering and jumping) when temperatures are under 20 degrees F, stick with walking and make sure to properly cool your horse down.

“Since starting with this program I have begun to pray again.”
These horses give our veterans hope for the future. The time they spend with other veterans at the barn helps them to find purpose & connection.
Building community through genuine connection gives meaning beyond the everyday routine. We meet people where they are & help them know they are not alone in their battles.
We want to reach more veterans in our community & look forward to partnering with you to make that happen.
Stock the Barn is our annual effort to fill the hay barn, acquire the grain, stock up on all the things we need to serve our veterans. Please join us in making our programs available to our veterans at no cost.
Thank you, Allison

Just like that we’re done with our ride! Horses are on their way home & our veterans are appreciating sitting on something that is not moving 😅.
We have lots of great things to share, more to come.
Thank you to our village who have helped us get the horses & equipment clean, in good shape & in the right places. Thank you to @braveheartsriding for letting us join you.
Thank you to our veterans that rode today. Way to step up & take on a serious challenge

Just a couple weeks until Fort Wayne’s Trail to Zero.
When I learned about this opportunity in March we had 2 adult size Western saddles that didn’t really fit our horses, our horses were out of shape & not super ambitious. I pictured myself walking the 20 miles with the Bravehearts team.
Now, 6 months later, this event has given purpose to our practice. I’m so impressed by how our veterans have embraced the cause & the work required. I’m grateful to our community for your support, we now have 8 horses with fitting tack & the financial support to get what we need. Plus our horses are really enjoying their expanded role.
This sense of purpose, to know you matter, it’s a game changer. As we bring awareness of the veteran suicide crisis to the streets of Fort Wayne, we lead by example.
Thank you for your support of our mission
#trailtozero #myfortwayne #veteran #quarterhorse

With the help of the Chicago Police Mounted Unit 15 BraveHearts horses, veterans and support riders have begun the 20-mile trek on Trail to Zero to raise awareness and prevention for the 20 military veterans and service members who die by suicide every day. We are proud to ride in our hometown city in efforts to end military suicide and help reach more veterans 🇺🇸

It’s HOT & humid. Drink a lot of water & take breaks. Horses physically have less surface area than people do so it’s harder for them to stay cool in the heat. Lots of water, access to salts & minerals, shade & a breeze help

""When a lot of folks can't get a horse to operate on a feel, in a snaffle, what most are going to tell you "hell, get a little more bridle, get a little more shank on it, get a chain on it" and then when he's really wanting to flip over then "tie his head down". If he really runs into the tie down then "get a bicycle chain over his nose".............I mean it DOESN'T STOP, IT BECOMES MEDIEVAL WHAT THEY DO.
But when you get a horse to where he's operating on a feel; it doesn't make much difference what you have.
Whereas a lot of people leave the snaffle bit because they flunked out, they failed...............and then they go and get another bit.
Of course these tack salesmen love that. They go and get another bit and then they flunk out in it, ruin their horse. Then they ruin them in that, then get another bit and then pretty soon they've got a whole wall full of bits and they still can't operate the damn thing.
All that money they've wasted on bits; they could've probably bought a decent saddle for the horse so he didn't have to put up with the junk they were riding in. Now that would have been something that would have been worthwhile.
So if you don't get it done in the snaffle (the basics that a horse needs, the fundamental movements that all horses need to do for whatever you have in mind for them) before moving on to something else, well............you're not going to get it."" - Buck Brannaman.

VERY IMPORTANT!!!!! If you are in love with a ATFO horse this year a few things to remember!

You MUST be preapproved to bid/adopt at the event

Your application is good for 1 year after approval so if you don't find the perfect fit at the ATFO one may come in later

Our adoption processing team is all volunteer based. Because of this and the time it can take to reach your references you MUST APPLY BY AUGUST 15TH to be able to bid

While some horses went for amazingly high adoption fees last year, many were adopted for $2,500 or under. With the horse market how it is, this is a chance to get a steal of a horse with 3 months of professional training already and some trainers offer continued discounted training for their ATFO horse.

You are able to meet and try a horse you like after you are approved to adopt either before the event, or during!

We do have proxy bidding available and will work with a shipper if you are adopting from a distance

See all adoptable horses at: https://appalachiantrainerfaceoff.com/2021-appalachian-trainer-face-off-horses/

Apply and learn more at: https://appalachiantrainerfaceoff.com/adoption/
