Woodloch Stable had an educational double whammy over the weekend; not one but two world-renowned clinicians visited us to teach us and our horses! California-based French eventer Yves Sauvignon graced Woodloch’s brand spanking new cross-country course on Saturday with his expertise and good-humored instruction, while Western trainer Josh Lyons offered a rigorous 3-day riding clinic in Woodloch’s large indoor arena. Riders of all backgrounds, levels, and disciplines gathered for a weekend of valuable education and fun, and celebrated our accomplishments afterward with a stellar cookout. It was a true moment of East meets West to see Josh and Yves chat and share their training philosophies (and a couple of beers) with each other!

Cavalor Feed for Thought: Protein is essential to your horse’s health, but can be too much of a good thing when it comes to feeding your horse a high-protein diet. If your horse ingests more protein than necessary, the liver and kidneys work overtime to process and excrete the urea, or protein by-product, in the urine, which can lead to issues such as dehydration, damage to the liver and kidneys, and even respiratory issues.
