Days like today prove why we have the best group of boarders. One girl's truck broke down while hauling her horse locally. I was off the farm picking up hay. Through some calling around, another boarder's mom was able to go pick up the horse in her daughter's rig and get the horse safely back to barn. Then once the truck was towed, I went and retrieved the trailer. It made for an interesting day, but everyone pulled together to get everything taken care of.

Pro-tip for rainy days like today: hang your horse blankets up inside out (horse side up) to dry faster to go back on the horse.

So very true.

Discussing yesterday how jumper riders with centered, balanced posture, as shown here in the first and fourth photo, do so by letting the upward thrust of the horse bring their hips BACK---So that in the air, the rider is OVER, rather than in front of his/her own feet.

The second photo shows how when a rider is centered over her feet, she neither falls forwards nor backwards.

The third photo shows how you can trot without posting in that "crouch" to get an inkling of what it feels like when jumping.

Even if you are a long suffering neck diver, who finds yourself draped on your horse's neck like a praying mantis, it is something that you do not have to live with.

But you have to work on substituting the correct way for the sloppy way---It won't float down from heaven above---

For some riders, the idea of "warm up" simply does not exist. Over decades, I have watched people drive in for a lesson. They unload, tack up, get on, walk around for the obligatory one minute and 23 seconds, pick up the reins, and start trotting.

I have done similar things.

About ten years ago, the great Olympic gold medal trainer, Klaus Balkenhol, was teaching a NEDA clinic at U-Mass Amherst. He talked about warm up, and how too many riders think of warm up as a tedious necessity that is to be sped through so that they can get on with the "real work."

Balkenhol explained that warm up is absolutely a part of real work, and he said that at a bare minimum, a horse should walk on loose reins for ten full minutes. Then, not be grabbed and drilled into the trot, but allowed to bend and stretch gradually, again, as part of the training process. He actually advised using a watch to self monitor, because ten minutes can seem like 20, if you are not used to the concept.

Some time after that, I was reading about a William Fox-Pitt clinic, in which William similarly advocated long, slow warm ups as an integral part of the work. He said, as I recall, that with some horses he will go out for a half hour walk before starting to ask for more.

And, yes, I realize that many riders have tight time constraints, and do not feel as though they can take the time to do the warm up correctly. If you are one who thinks that, I would simply have you ask yourself this question---

"If two of the greatest trainers in the world think that a long, gradual warm up is a critical part of correct training, and I do not, do I know better than they do?"

Dr. Paul Anikis definitely won largest patient of the week when he went to visit Shanthi, an Asian elephant at Smithsonian’s National Zoo. Zoo veterinarians have been diligently managing her osteoarthritis with multi-modal therapies for decades. Joint injections with IRAP and Osphos treatments (administered by Dr. Anikis) are two of the tools they use to keep her comfortable and support her quality of life. Zoo keepers have noticed positive trends in her behavior following treatments while Zoo veterinarians have measured a decrease in inflammatory markers in her blood and joint fluid. Dr. Anikis is gratified to be able to use the knowledge he’s gained in equine medicine to contribute to Shanthi’s well being. To learn more about Shanthi or contribute to the Zoo’s efforts, please visit nationalzoo.si.edu
