**Division WINNERS**
This is each division winner in Race 1 at Buckles and Barrels for Bailey! Each rider landed .5 seconds off from one another and think of the other 500+ Entries that landed somewhere in between or just behind!

There has not been a shortage of fun at the Buckles & Barrels For Bailey 2020 race!

WHAT IS A COGGINS TEST AND WHY DOES YOUR HORSE NEED ONE?

Most horse owners know that a negative Coggins test is a document required to be able to transport their horse across state lines, enter them in a competitive event, or board at someone's barn.

Does this mean your horses don't need to be tested if you keep them at your place and don't travel with them? The answer is: NO.

A "Coggins" is a blood test that can only be performed by USDA-approved laboratories and checks for Equine Infectious Anemia (EIA) antibodies in the horse's blood. EIA is a potentially fatal blood-borne infectious viral disease that produces a persistent infection — which means that infected horses become lifelong carriers, as there is no vaccine and no treatment.

EIA is transmitted by biting flies, particularly horseflies, so your horse is at risk even it never travels or lives in a closed herd. If a horse becomes infected, the clinical signs of disease can vary dramatically, from an acute infection with slight to high fever for a few days and perhaps small hemorrhages, to progressive weakness, weight loss, depression, and disorientation. EIA also has an inapparent form; affected horses might only show a slight fever for a day or be totally without clinical signs of the infection.

If a horse tests positive for EIA, they will serve as a lifelong source of disease transmission to other equids; at that point the owner can only choose between quarantine and isolation for the rest of the horse's life (minimum 200 yards away from all other horses), or humane euthanasia.

Bottom line: yes, a Coggins test is a necessary travel document; but it's also first and foremost a way to identify and remove EIA carriers, to ensure that large outbreaks of the disease don't take place.

The Equestrian Center

We are big at teaching the "why" - this was too good not to share. It's the "little" things you do to help your horse that makes them happy and enjoy their time with you.

⬆️Pulling your saddle pad up into the pommel.

💪 It can can take a bit of practice with saddle shifting and pad pulling, but your horse will appreciate it.
🙁 Without being pulled up, when the saddle is cinched the pad presses down on the withers potentially causing discomfort.
😀 With the pad pulled up into the pommel the withers have room to move and there isn't a pressure point.
If you aren't already in the habit of doing this the next time you ride put your fingers between the pad and your horses withers while walking or trotting.
It's our job to make sure that they can comfortably carry us. This simple shift ⬆️ can help to make that happen.
