Boyd Martin’s newest mount made a debut, of sorts, yesterday in the Open Intermediate Division at Pine Top Farm in Thomson, Georgia. After watching the video that had been posted at Boyd Martin’s website in December I was most interested to see Shamwari 4 in person. He may come in a Plain Brown Wrapper but that label is anything but descriptive of what you will see. The horse has that “It Factor”, charisma. You WILL remember this horse when he goes by. Already spectators are calling him by the most obvious nickname, you guessed it: ShamWOW!
When the American Foxhound named Jewel took Best in Show at the November 2013 National Dog Show she capped a year of showing in which she had already taken Best of Breed at the Westminster Kennel Club. While the owner of Jewel declared that she wanted to bring attention to an oft neglected (at least in the press) breed of dog, in fact there are many “types” of Foxhound as they are bred and used by different Recognized Hunts. Foxhounds that are shown at shows sanctioned by the Masters of Foxhounds Association (MFHA) must have been bred to chase foxes and in many cases trace their lineage to sires or dams listed in the Stud Book just as thoroughbred race horses are entered in the Stud Book of the Jockey Club. There are four main breeds of foxhound: American, English, Cross-bred and Penn-Mary-del. Many hunts, whether “Recognized” or not, trade hounds between themselves in order to increase genetic diversity or import (“draft”) some physical feature that is strong in one lineage to compensate for a perceived weakness in another. Hounds are, in fact, as variable in size, temperament and ability to move across different terrain as there are hunt packs across the country; the Master, Huntsman or Owner will breed hounds that will respond in the most efficient manner to the landscape and the quarry that they hunt. There are 159 Recognized Hunts and innumerable private packs across the continent: Location of Recognized Hunts courtesy of The Masters of Foxhounds Association – MFHA.org As a practical matter, while many people associate foxhounds with a traditional tri-color, black, tan and white, working foxhounds come in every color imaginable, every size and shape, girls (“bitches”) and boys (“dog hounds”), rough coat and smooth coat as seen at the 2013 Virginia Hound Show Whichever hound works best in that particular countryside is the hound that will prevail. And countryside from one Hunt to another can be vastly different, and vastly different even within the territory that is claimed by a Hunt ( Midland Fox Hounds of Columbus Georgia for instance, claim (a) 25 square miles of wooded, grass fields, (b) 80 square miles of grass pastures, some woods, (c) 10 square miles of sandy soil, pine tree plantations with streams, and lastly (d) 10 square miles or farmland and forests ). The following are a few photographs of hounds and their country shot within the last year and a half.
We all pay a lot for horse feed . By storing it properly you can minimize the amount of feed that goes to waste, while ensuring that the feed your horse eats is safe and good for him. Hay Quality Buy only hay that has been properly cured and stored, and inspect every hay delivery you receive.
Winter rides can be fun – with the proper tack and clothing, you and your horse can enjoy dashing through the snow. It’s important to take precautions to warm up and cool down your horse properly, though, especially in the cold weather
Thoroughbred & Adopter Blossoming Together as an Eventing Team! “Kissing Santa only had two starts at the track, never breaking her maiden, and only earning $1,504. Her donor decided that the mare would be better suited for a different career and sent her to New Vocations in December, 2011. She was quickly adopted by Katie Jordan of Urbana, Ohio to begin her new career in eventing.

Rockwood, Ontario – Canadian Olympian David Marcus of Campbellville, ON, made a clean sweep of the grand prix division at the CDI3* Angelstone International Dressage Tournament held June 14 through 16 in Rockwood, ON. Riding his 2012 London Olympic mount, Chrevi’s Capital, Marcus won both the Grand Prix and the Grand Prix Freestyle while Don Kontes stood in the winner’s circle following the Grand Prix Special. Marcus and Chrevi’s Capital topped a nine-horse starting field with a score of 69.81% earned from the five-member panel of international judges. Riding Don Kontes, Marcus took third place with a score of 66.62%, finishing behind his 2012 London Olympic teammate Jacqueline Brooks and D Niro who scored 67.51%. Both of Marcus’s horses are owned by Deborah Kinzinger. “Capital hasn’t shown since February, so it was nice to get him back in the show ring,” said Marcus, 32. “He felt fresh and happy in his job. It was a nice, clean test. It was fairly conservative, but since he hadn’t shown in a while, my goal was simply to go in and have no mistakes.” Both the Grand Prix Special and Grand Prix Freestyle were held on Saturday evening in front of hundreds of spectators. Marcus and Chrevi’s Capital, a 13-year-old Danish Warmblood gelding (Chrevi’s Cavallo x Weinberg), rode their musical freestyle for the third time in competition, having debuted their new program at the prestigious CDI5* World Dressage Masters Palm Beach in January. Compiled by Joost Peters of The Netherlands and featuring the music of George Michael and WHAM!, their freestyle performance earned the winning score of 72.73% to hold off Brooks and D Niro with 72.33%
