Safeguarding Our Sport Against Cyber-Bullying

In a sport with the highest highs and the lowest lows, we come together to cheer one another on, to give support in the difficult times and celebrate our successes. We discuss topics important to us, our horses and our sport, striving to be better horsemen, competitors and people. We make it through rough weather, nonexistent days off, broken bodies and empty wallets. Through it all we are a community, and we are a family, and we are fortunate to be doing what we love. Yet among us there are bullies, striking out while hiding behind their keyboards, attacking the very base of our community.

Cyber bullying has directly affected my family. After writing a congratulatory post on my Facebook wall for my daughter, there was an onslaught of ugliness within the comments. This assault was based on my daughter running two Preliminary competitions in a row. The comments were made from an adult that we hardly know from outside of our program, who in addition to being an inexperienced rider, is a hypocrite as her own coach has done the same thing. Facts were provided, and still the comments continued, disparaging our friends, our trainers and the venues that work so hard for all of us. Making the choice to just move on and let it go, the comments were removed and we turned the focus back to the original intent of the post: to congratulate my daughter on a job well done.

Early the following day, a friend alerted me to a thread that had been started on The Chronicle of the Horse forum by this same individual. The initial post was used to further question and damn our decision and horsemanship. It included screenshots from my Facebook page, including my minor daughter’s name, sarcastically labeled “for your viewing pleasure.” When her comments were not agreed upon in a way that was satisfying to her, she created a second account to try to bolster her opinion. (Note: The Chronicle of the Horse respectfully deleted the thread and banned both accounts, citing they did not support the use of their forum in this manner.)

The obsessiveness to be “right” and vindicated in her opinion was disturbing. Yes, it may not always be ideal to run your horse back-to-back, but they did not know our horse, our program, our trainers or the facts behind this decision to safely prepare this team for a successful first CCI* three weeks later. My daughter was able to push aside the situation and move forward, but what if the negativity had stuck to her when she left the start box? Potential consequences need to be considered when people disparage their fellow riders.

We may all be guilty to some degree, and we need to check ourselves first and be respectful. We must stand up for one another and not accuse someone or attack them in situations wherein we may not know all the facts. There is constructive criticism, but then there is downright bullying and shaming. This goes for juniors, amateurs, professionals, bloggers and spectators alike. We need to question uneducated, irrational responses and not look away. Bullies need to know their behavior is not supported by our community. We can all make such a positive difference doing the right thing — it’s integrity, and it can be very powerful.

The USEF now has a policy in place, Safe Sport, for reporting bullying and harassment, among other forms of physical and emotional misconduct. Learn more here.

The best kind of Valentine. Photo via Sagmae FB.

Happy Day After Valentines Day!! Also known as, 50% off chocolate day!! There are only two times a year that this kind of candy bonanza presents itself (with the other being November 1st), so be sure to take advantage of it! I personally spent Valentines Day the exact same way as per usual, and maybe forced Nyls (who is quite grumpy around the barn) to endure a smooch or two. But now, for chocolates ….

Wednesday Video from Kentucky Performance Products: Free Riding Practice with Alycia Burton

Alycia Burton of Free Riding NZ and her incredible palomino paint gelding GoldRush have gained international fame through viral videos featuring amazing tackless feats, from blazing fast beach gallops to international cross country jumping. But while it’s incredible to watch what they do, horse people know what is more impressive is how they do what they do.

Alycia and “Banjo” clearly have a remarkable partnership founded on trust and communication. Such a connection isn’t born overnight. It takes years to build and perfected only through countless hours of practice. That’s why we love Alycia’s latest video of her and Banjo schooling at home, warming up and working together to fine tune their skills and further solidify the strength of their relationship.

In the video description, Alycia says they are getting back into jump training after a month off so they are working on being “accurate, light and reactive.”

Alycia now has her own training DVD series and is touring Australia sharing her knowledge and inspiring youth to chase their dreams. Click here to learn more.

Weekly OTTB Wishlist from Cosequin: Gambling Greys

Greys are a bit of gamble, especially young ones; you just never know exactly what they’re going to end up looking like! Might they stay a bit dark? Will they end up with a coat as white as a blanket of snow? Most importantly, will there be dapples? One thing is for certain: now matter how they turn out you’re going to need boatloads of purple shampoo and green-spot remover.

If you feel like taking a chance on a grey today, we picked out three lovely ones available on CANTER to feature in this week’s OTTB Wishlist:

Trade the Pick (Exchange Rate – Julie Truly, by Miner’s Mark): 2015 16.2-hand Kentucky bred gelding

This young guy has a long future ahead of him — but not as a racehorse! Trade the Pick has not at all been impressive at the track, running in the rear of the pack of his only two races. He is sound and still in training, but his owners are betting that he’ll click with another sport better than racing and would like to see him move on.

The Grey Mousse (The Pamplemousse – Flag the Mint Down, by Flag Down): 2012 17.0-hand California bred mare

This big eye-catching mare is ready to be your next project! She is sound and athletic, but just isn’t competitive in the races. However, her pedigree hints that she might be a very competitive eventer. Her sire, The Pamplemousee, has already produced some horses who are eventing off the track and he is now being trained for a second career in eventing himself. Will this big lady follow in his footsteps?

View The Grey Mousse on CANTER California.

Barcraft (Mizzen Mast – A Party for Two, by Lear Fan): 2014 16.1-hand Kentucky bred gelding

This gelding is another one who is sound and healthy, but has shown in his 13 starts to just not be a competitive race horse. “Crafty” is a sweet horse to be around and his connections say he has an amateur-friendly disposition. He is a light cribber at mealtimes, but it is completely controlled with a collar.

The age of wee eventers begins! Photo via Andrea Davidson’s Instagram.

It seems like quite a lot of eventers have been procreating lately and with that comes an era of photos of wee future eventers tackling their first lead-line classes. Just look at that tiny pink Charles Owen … it almost makes me want to go buy one despite not have a child of my own!

Your Wednesday News & Notes:

Check out the familiar faces hanging out at WEF. Phillip and Boyd took a skeleton crew of their top horses down to WEF on the advice of Erik Duvander. With just their top horses to concentrate, they can really work on getting them adjusted to competing in atmosphere for both jumping and dressage. [Big Names in Eventing]

Those hunters all look happy in the ring, but not all of them have happy-go-lucky personalities. Hunter champion Small Affair knows how to put on a game face that helps him win but at home he’s a bit of a grump. One thing besides his job that cheers him up is a hard peppermint…but don’t try to give him a puffy one. [Behind the Stall Door]

The weekly OTTB critique is quickly becoming an interesting regular read. This week, 4* rider Jenn McFall evaluates a 2008 gelding named Symphonic Hero, a war horse with 59 starts. [ERQI Now Available]

Tuesday Video from Nupafeed: Boyd’s Week in Wellington

Boyd Martin spent the last week underneath the palm trees, but he wasn’t on vacation! He spent last week in Wellington, Florida, splitting his time between the Winter Equestrian Festival (WEF) and the Adequan Global Dressage Festival (AGDF), really cracking down on his homework before the season gets fully underway. He brought along his upper level string including Shamwari, Steady Eddie, Tsetserleg, Long Island T and Contessa.

“The last ten days I’ve spent in Wellington, Florida with five of my upper-level horses. Phillip Dutton and I were encouraged to do this exercise from our new High Performance coach Eric Duvander and I must say it’s been a humbling experience jumping against the pros and competing at the AGDF 5* dressage show among some of the best in the world but I’m also inspired, and it’s going very well,” Boyd said in a blog post.

“Phillip and I have been working with dressage trainer Scott Hassler from Maryland for the past year. We’ve been training with Scott monthly up north and daily down here in Florida. Our jumping coach Richard Picken also made the trip with us and has been schooling us at our stable and coaching us in the classes at the Winter Equestrian Festival (WEF).”

He worked through second and third level tests, earning 71% twice with Long Island T on third level test 3. Here’s what his week looked like:

Most-Tipped Horses Heading into the Cheltenham Festival

Embed from Getty Images

Jump racing’s elite will congregate in Gloucestershire for four days of fantastic racing next month, as Prestbury Park welcomes hundreds of thousands of fans through its gate during the 2018 Cheltenham Festival. Twenty-eight prestigious prizes will be awarded as the best horses in the land look to establish their dominance in their respective disciplines and earn their places in the annals of sporting history.

Over the past six months, racecourses around Britain and Ireland have hosted important meetings, giving everyone plenty of clues heading into Festival season. There are still four weeks for horses to run their way into contention and injury problems to arise, but experts have already started tipping horses they expect to triumph at the Cheltenham Festival.

The Cheltenham Gold Cup is the most prestigious contest of the week and the name on everyone’s lips when discussing this historic chase is Might Bite. Nicky Henderson’s enigmatic charge rallied after some late wanderings to claim his first Cheltenham victory in the RSA Novices’ Chase last season.

Three wins have followed since, with his most recent triumph coming in the King George VI Chase. Might Bite was very cautious over his fences and didn’t enjoy the softer ground, but still had enough class to put the race to bed – an ominous sign for his Cheltenham Festival rivals.

Stablemate Buveur D’Air was rerouted from life over fences to have a crack at the Champion Hurdle last season. Nicky Henderson’s gamble paid off tenfold, as the JP McManus-owned gelding scorched to a tremendous victory. While many of his potential Champion Hurdle rivals have failed to fire, Buveur D’Air has won all three of his starts this season without breaking a sweat and looks set to join an illustrious list of winners who have been able to retain their Cheltenham crown.

Footpad has been the most impressive novice chaser in the sport this season. Willie Mullins’ charge romped to victory in a beginners’ contest before comfortably winning Grade Ones at Leopardstown’s Christmas meeting and the Dublin Racing Festival earlier this month. Owners Simon Munir & Isaac Suoede have enjoyed their most successful season to date and Footpad will be their leading light at the Festival.

Gigginstown Stud have ruled the roost over in Ireland once again and connections will look on expectantly as Apple’s Jade tries to retain her Mares’ Hurdle crown. Since defeating two of Willie Mullins’ best mares at last year’s meeting, Gordon Elliott’s golden girl has gone from strength to strength. Her most recent triumph in a three mile Grade One at Leopardstown saw the Stayers’ Hurdle become a genuine option, but it’s highly likely Elliott will send Apple’s Jade back to the race she won last year and another routine victory is expected.

She could be joined in the winners’ circle by full sister Apple’s Shakira, who has won three times around Cheltenham already during this campaign. Nicky Henderson’s youngster has won all three of her starts with the minimum of fuss and, while the Mares’ Novices’ Hurdle remains open to her, she seems destined to claim victory in the Triumph Hurdle.

Ten-year-old Un De Sceaux has looked as good as ever this season, cruising to a history-making hat-trick in the Clarence House Chase at Ascot. He powered to victory from the front of the field in last years’ Ryanair Chase and many experts are tipping Willie Mullins’ dual-Festival hero to repeat that fantastic feat.

While there are other Cheltenham contenders who have had their credentials highlighted over recent weeks, the undisputed hot-pot heading into this year’s Festival is the sensational Samcro. Gordon Elliott’s imposing youngster has run roughshod through the novice hurdling ranks, sauntering to victory in all three of his appearances without jockey Jack Kennedy even entertaining the urge to draw for his whip.

Last week, Elliott dropped Samcro back to two miles at the Dublin Racing Festival and the five-year-old passed that speed test with flying colours. Phrases like “the best horse I’ve ever seen” and “a future Gold Cup winner” have been thrown into the media during the first half of the season. Those soundbites may seem a little premature, but one thing everyone seems to agree on, is that Samcro will enter the winners’ enclosure at the 2018 Cheltenham Festival.


Who is Qualified for Kentucky CCI4* 2018?

Who will be in this stadium this year? Photo via EN’s Instagram.

With the Advanced season set to begin at Rocking Horse Winter II Horse Trials this week, anticipation will begin to build for what is currently the biggest event in North America — the Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event. The possibilities are thrilling at the beginning of the competition season, and EN is here to offer you a preview of which horses are qualified to compete at Kentucky each spring.

Currently, there are 65 horses fully qualified and at least 14 who have achieved qualification but need to renew their 12-month requirement with a CIC3* in the spring. Additionally, 12 Canadian horses are qualified but must achieve their National Federation requirements within three months of the competition date. Finally, there are 15 horses that have obtained the necessary CCI3* qualifications to compete at a four-star, but need additional CIC3* qualifications.

We make no claims that this is a complete list. Only horses that competed at least once at the Advanced, three-star or four-star levels in North America in 2017 or were listed on the 2018 USEF Winter High Performance Training Lists were evaluated for qualifications. Additionally, American riders based overseas are on this list, but not other nationalities.

If anyone knows of a horse who is aimed at Kentucky but has not competed at these levels since 2016 or before, please let us know so we can properly update the list by emailing [email protected]. Similarly, if you know of a horse on this list that has been retired, sold or is otherwise not competing at this level anymore, please update us. We have updated the list with news as it has come in during the off-season.

For a full explanation of what constitutes a qualified pair for the four-star level, read EN’s guide Know Your Qualifications: CCI4* 2017 Redux for more details, along with a handy tutorial on how to check your FEI qualifications for any level with any rider, or any horse. Along with FEI requirements of completing the qualifying shows, National Federations may add their own requirements, which apply to their riders no matter where they are based.

For instance, US Equestrian requires that one of the qualifying results be within a year of the desired competition date. Equestrian Canada requires the completion of a qualifying Advanced or three-star within three months of the competition. Other National Federations have no additional requirements, like New Zealand. Horses are subject to the rules of the National Federation of their rider.

Riders with the following nationalities are based in the U.S. and currently competing at the Advanced and 3* levels:

  • Australia: Horses must have another Advanced or CI3* MER in addition to FEI requirements if not ridden by a Category A rider. Category A riders must have two additional Advanced or CI3* MER in addition to the FEI required CCI3*.
  • Brazil: No additional NF requirements. (Rules document from 2017, 2018 not available.)
  • Canada: Must have one MER at an Advanced or CIC3* within three months of competition date.
  • Great Britain: Horses ridden by Category C, D, or uncategorized riders need an additional Advanced or CI3*. Horses ridden by A riders need an additional CI3* as well as another Advanced or CI3*. Category B riders have no extra BEF requirements.
  • Ireland: Horses ridden by Category B, C, D, or uncategorized riders need an additional Advanced or CI3*. Horses ridden by A riders need an additional CI3* as well as another Advanced or CI3*. (Rules document from 2017, 2018 not available.)
  • New Zealand: No additional NF requirements. (Rules document went into effect August 1, 2017.)

Riders representing Ecuador, Mexico, Netherlands and Puerto Rico are also based in the U.S., but their National Federation requirements are not published online. If anyone has information regarding qualifications for these federations, please feel free to email us at [email protected].

Many of the pairs listed below have more than sufficient qualifying results. We have listed only the most recent shows that achieve qualification for them, plus the date of the show that most recently satisfies the 12-month requirement. One asterisk before the show name indicates one stop on cross countryTwo asterisks indicates a frangible penalty. When possible, we used shows with clear cross country rounds.

As noted in the above Know Your Qualifications link, FEI Category A and B riders do not need to satisfy the full gamut of qualifications, and may take advantage of modified paths to qualification. These pairs are still listed below and denoted with a (B) or (A) next to the rider name to denote that the horse is qualified due to the rider categorization. If the rider does not have the (B) or (A) next to their name but is a B or A rider, that indicates that the horse is fully qualified through the traditional pathway.

Also, all of the horses listed below are qualified with their current rider. If a rider change occurs, the new rider will not be able to compete the horse at Kentucky this spring.

For a review of what entails an MER up through 2016, please revisit Know Your Qualifications for a complete explanation. For 2017, MER requirements became stricter and can be viewed in the Know Your Qualifications: CCI4* 2017 Redux link. Beginning in 2017, the MER requirements remain the same as 2017 but the 1.5 coefficient for dressage is dropped, making a dressage score of 45.0 or below the required mark to achieve for an MER.
