Top 5 Endurance Horse Health Issues

With the prestigious Tevis Cup Ride just two weeks away (Aug. 9, to be exact), I figure it’s only fitting I devote a blog post to a sport I know hardly anything about: endurance trail riding. During this 100-mile event, nearly 200 horses will attempt the trek across rugged California mountain terrain within a 24-hour time frame.

The best of the best will be able to complete their ride on a healthy horse in approximately 14 or 15 hours, but half of the starters likely won’t even finish. Why? Because this type of grueling ride can take its toll on horses.  Issues veterinarians commonly note at endurance checkpoints include muscle injuries, metabolic problems, and a lack of eating and drinking.

Thinkstock Throughout the race, riders will present their horses at nine checkpoints, where veterinarians evaluate whether each animal is fit to continue. Any signs of equine injury or exhaustion, and your journey ends right there. Two years ago I had the chance to talk to Dr. Wes Elford, a veteran FEI endurance veterinarian as well as rider. I asked him what types of physical issues he encounters most when evaluating endurance horses. I know ligament strains and back soreness are at the top of my “watch list” for hunter/jumpers, but what about horses whose focus is more stamina than form and speed? Here’s what he shared: Good ol’ lameness “The most prominent issue at most rides is lameness, but the most prominent lameness that occurs is dependent on the ride,” Elford said. “A deep sandy ride will have suspensory ligament and flexor tendon issues, while a rocky ride will cause stone bruises,” therefore resulting in lameness as a result of bruised soles.  Muscle injuries. Elford said these range all the way from mild muscle cramps to strains to exertional rhabdomyolysis, or “tying-up.”  Sore backs. Typically due to ill-fitting tack, many endurance horses develop sore backs over the course of a ride. “The backs of some horses get so sore that they will not let you touch them, and they just radiate heat when you place your hand over them,” Elford explained.   Lack of eating and drinking. “It takes a horse a while to get used to the procedures of an endurance ride with the vet checks and other horses all around,” he said. “The transition from going down the trail to coming to a vet check and then having to eat and drink and get checked by a vet has to be learned by a new competitor. Even some old campaigners can have difficulties at times.”   Metabolic issues. Elford calls these the most critical of all endurance horse health issues. “A horse may have everything going for it but for some reason gets into trouble with its metabolics–in other words, the biologic activities of life that have to go on for the animal to function: eating, drinking, peeing, and pooing,” he said. “These all involve hydration and energy metabolism that are so important for the vital life-sustaining activities that go on within the horse’s body.” So there you have it–the most common endurance horse health issues seen from a veterinarian’s perspective. All you trail riders (competitive or otherwise) out there, what health challenges do you run across?                                     Filed under: endurance • trail ride • tevis cup  About the Author   – See more at: http://cs.thehorse.com/blogs/winning-edge-performance-horse-health/archive/2014/07/23/top-5-endurance-horse-issues.aspx#sthash.HMIpe4qy.dpuf

Ghosts of Press Boxes Past – Greg Douglas Answers

          ‘GHOST OF PRESS BOXES PAST’

   Derby Bar and Grill Newsletter

        July 22, 2014 

Letter to the Editor:   

There were some valid points and observations put forth in the American-based editorial Ghost of Press Boxes Past that ran in the Derby Bar and Grill Newsletter earlier this week. Having managed the Jack Short Press Box at Hastings Racecourse for the past 10 years, I feel compelled to share with your subscribers that the doom and gloom presented in the article is a gross misrepresentation compared to media attendance and interest at Hastings.

The article says:  “The once hustling and bustling racing press boxes are now no more than ghost towns, hollow shells inhabited by no one.”

No one?

Just this past weekend at Hastings Racecourse – an overcast, rain-threatening weekend with less-than-riveting race cards – the press box was alive with commotion. Global Television sports director Squire Barnes was on hand with reporter Shanel Pratap and cameraman TrevorHenderson to shoot a feature on the starting gate crew. Team 1040 morning man Dave Pratt, CKNW sports talk show host Brook Ward, veteran Vancouver Sun journalist Dennis Feser, Province columnist Tom Wolski, roving print and radio reporter Bob Mackin and BC Racing publisher Jim Reynolds were all on hand, comparing notes and selections with Daily Racing Form correspondent Randy Goulding.

No one? 

Hall of Fame broadcaster Jim Robson is a Hastings press box regular, as are celebrated retired racing columnists Archie MacDonald and Kent (Cookie) Gilchrist. They take great delight in swapping yarns with younger occasional media visitors such as Global TV’s Jay Durant, James Cybulski from Sportsnet and CTV’s Kelcey Brade.

The Ghost of Press Boxes Past editorial says: “The press box was once a place of camaraderie, stories, jokes and perhaps a drink or two at the end of the day. It is sad to say those days are gone with the wind – the wind of change”.

Thankfully, those winds have harmlessly passed over our humble little racing oval with the panoramic view of the NorthShoreMountains and Burrard Inlet.  Hastings is celebrating its 125th year of thoroughbred racing in Vancouver, where the press box is neither “a ghost town” nor “a hollow shell inhabited by no one”.

No More ‘What Ifs’ With Wise Dan

HASKINS

On one side of Saratoga Race Course, facing the Oklahoma  training track, is the home of Palace Malice, currently the No. 1 ranked horse  in America and favorite for Horse of the Year honors.

On the other side of the grandstand, facing the main track,  is the home of Wise Dan, reigning two-time Horse of the Year.

Both horses can look out their window and watch the activity  on their respective tracks. Both are kind, intelligent horses, but fierce  competitors. Both are the best at what they do.

But that is where the similarities end. In age, color,  markings, surface preference, and racing career, they are nothing alike.

It is looking more and more as if they will never meet in  battle, unless Wise Dan returns to the dirt in the Woodward Stakes, which at  this point appears to be a remote possibility at best.

Wise Dan’s career is what it is, and now that he is about to  embark on a comeback at age 7 from colic surgery, he should be appreciated for  what he does and what he’s accomplished and forget about what he could have or  should have done over the past two years. My hope that he be given a chance for  immortality by running in the Breeders’ Cup Classic or other top-class dirt  races at least one more time has all but disappeared and I have accepted that.

It is time to live by Emerson’s words: “To be yourself in a  world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest  accomplishment.”
If Wise Dan is not ready for a third attempt at the  Fourstardave Handicap Aug. 9, he likely will point for the Aug. 30 Bernard  Baruch Handicap. And it was Baruch who echoed Emerson’s words: “Be who you are  and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter, and those who  matter don’t mind.”

Those are the words trainer Charlie LoPresti and owner  Morton Fink have been living by, and I will be the first to commend them for  not paying attention to all those, myself included, who yearned for Wise Dan to  try to elevate himself into the realm of the all-time great geldings, such as  Kelso, Forego, and John Henry. That has not been their priority. They have  remained true to themselves and to their horse. And while they chose not to aim  for the galaxy, there certainly is nothing wrong with being considered one of  the greatest, if not THE greatest, ever at what you do.

I have maintained over the past year and a half that Wise  Dan is unbeatable at a mile on the grass, and not only has he justified that  comment, he has done it in a variety of ways–winning comfortably, breaking  course records, overcoming trouble, handling bog-like surfaces, and passing  those rare gut checks when he had to reach deep down inside himself. He is a  pure winning machine; one of the purest anyone has ever seen. His long frame  and the energy he is able to generate, especially from his hind end,  demonstrates just what a powerful and efficient mover he is. To claim a horse  is unbeatable is the greatest compliment one can give, because as the saying  goes, “It takes a horse to make a person feel like an ass.”

No one knows for sure how Wise Dan will return at his age  from fairly recent surgery. The fact that he’s back working and pointing for an  Aug. 9 return only seven weeks after his surgery says a great deal about the  horse. When they went in to perform the emergency surgery they discovered that  the problem had corrected itself, which in some ways also says a lot about the  old boy’s toughness and his healing powers.

Whether he comes back in the Fourstardave or the Bernard  Baruch, it will be a memorable occasion, and I hope to be there to record that  entire day, from dawn until dusk. Saratoga has provided some emotional moments  in its long history, the most recent being Rachel Alexandra’s gut-wrenching victory  in the Woodward Stakes, and a triumphant return by Wise Dan would rank right up  there.
There are no more ‘what might have beens’ with Wise Dan,  just ‘what is.’ It looked for a while as if we were going to lose him for an  extended period of time, considering the initial severity of his condition and not  knowing for sure if he would ever make it back. Now that he is back already and  barely missed a beat, it is time to appreciate the horse for what he is and be  grateful every time he steps on to the track–whatever race it may be.
