Board Members-                   Both! There’s no reason to choose between riding out on a trail and perfecting your rail work in an
Beth Haney           arena. Plus, the added advantage of taking your show horse out of the arena is to prevent potential rail burnout.
Janis Presley        Bob Avila, a respected trainer and exhibitor, stated, ―I constantly see people take their broke horses to the arena
Laura Paxson
Karen Hebert         and do the same thing every single day: Walk, jog, lope, turn around, then walk, jog, lope in the other
Lorraine Biederman   direction. That’s like trying to teach a bus driver how to drive every time he gets to work. It’s going to make
Diane Short          him mad.‖ (Horse & Rider, April 2008.) In the same article about beating rail horse burnout, Avila said,
Stacie Wight         ―Take your rail horse for a trail ride. A change of scenery will do you both a world of good.‖ Riding out on
Horse Show           the trails allows you to develop a stronger two-way communication with your horse and to gauge just how
Terry Simon          responsive she is to your cues. You can work on collection, leg yields, speed, etc., on the trail as you would in
805-522-3346         an arena but with different scenery to keep it more interesting. Insist on the same level of obedience and good
Terri Meadows        manners as you would in an arena and you will successfully be cross-training your horse.
805-582-1149                     If you haven’t taken your show horse out on the trails, it’s best not to do it in a group of unfamiliar
Points-              horses because this can make him anxious and unfocused. Instead, pair yourself with an experienced trail rider
Diane Short          before venturing out on your own. The best possible combination is with a horse your horse already knows.
661-269-1231         Another well known trainer, Al Dunning said in ―From Rails to Trails,‖ (Horse & Rider, May 2009),
                     ―[B]ecause horses learn by observing the behavior and reactions of other horses, the seasoned horse’s presence
Delegate             will . . . teach and help breed confidence in the one that’s less experienced.‖ Also, having a trusted trail
                     companion will do wonders for your own peace of mind. I think of trail riding as I do of swimming; it’s best to
Area 8 Directors     have someone along. As your horse becomes more comfortable out on the trail, adding in more horses and
[vacant]             riders gradually can make for a fun outing for everyone.
Membership-                      One cautionary word, be mindful of the Heat Index which is an index that combines relative humidity
Chris Mayer          with air temperature to estimate how hot your horse actually feels. (National Weather Service,
 805-581-3150        www.weather./gov/om/heat/index.shmtl.) If the air is saturated with moisture, sweat doesn’t evaporate quickly
Newsletter-          enough to cool off your horse. Your horse can lose a lot of fluid through excessive sweating and still not get
                     cooling relief, leading to dangerous complications such as dehydration and heatstroke. It’s best to limit
Terri Meadows
                     exercise in hot and humid conditions. Your horse’s fitness level also factors into how much exercise he can
805-582-1149         withstand safely—it’s best to work up to a level gradually. (For more information on how to keep your horse
Trap Program-        healthy and hydrated, see ―The Scoop on Sweat,‖ Practical Horseman, July 2009.)
Lorraine Biederman               I try to mix it up for my horse. I ride the local trails a few times a week, avoiding the arena altogether.
805-796-1411         On days I ride in an arena, it’s all about work. But then, we hit the trails for a nice relaxing walk home. I think
Mary Richards        this has helped my horse and I develop a stronger sense of trust and companionship. It sure hasn’t hurt!

                                          Barn Bargains
        Tough economic times? Here are a few money-saving ideas for around the barn.

                      "Teepee" Fly Ribbon Holder
    Fly ribbons can be tricky and inconvenient to use. Here is way that has been proven successful in my
barn. The nice thing about this idea is that it is portable and can be relocated easily. I keep a few in my barn
in the center aisle of my breezeway and when I have a horse out, I move one in their stall to trap more flies.
   Take an ordinary tomato cage [$.99] and flip it upside down so the wide end is on the ground. You may
have to adjust the wire to get the cage to stand straight.
   Then grab a fly ribbon [$.39] and remove the thumbtack and unwind the sticky tape. You will not need
the tack. It is best to unwind the tape when the product is warm so the glue will be softened.
   Guide the ribbon into the center of the inverted tomato cage. Taking the loop that is on top of the fly
ribbon, loop it though the three wires on top of the cage.
   Place your "Fly Teepee" in an area where flies are present. The ribbon should last about 3-4 days if kept
away from drying out prematurely by being exposed to dust, wind and/or sunlight.
---Submitted by Chris Mayer
Pellet Bottle Toy:
Take a large plastic bottle, the best ones are 96 oz juice bottles, discard the cap, and fill it with alfalfa or
other feed pellets. Place the filled bottle in the stall, shaking a few pellets out to get your horse’s interest.
Your horse will entertain itself by pushing the bottle around to get the pellets. The heavier plastic bottles can
be refilled several times. Once the bottles are unusable, toss in your recycling bin!
--Stolen Idea from Chris Mayer (submitted by Terri Meadows)
Flavored Bit Spray:
Forget about paying $10-$15 for a bottle of bit wipes. Instead, buy a small plastic bottle at the 99 cent store,
add a few drops of peppermint extract, and fill with water. Spray the mixture on the bit –your horse will love
it and take the bit eagerly---hopefully!
Does your horse cringe, shy, or bolt when you pull out its day sheet or blanket because of past experience
with scary zaps from the static? Mix 1 part fabric softener with 3 parts water in a medium sized spray bottle.
Spray the underside of the blanket or sheet to dramatically reduce static. This will last longer and is less
expensive than static guard products.

Dear Ranger McIntyre:

It has been brought to our attention from many diverse stakeholders and users of the Angeles
National Forest of the illegal construction of a single-use Mountain Bike Trail with numerous
engineered switchbacks, humps, and over 45 obstacles (jump, deck ramps, seesaws, luge
turns, etc.) located within the National Forest near Riverwood.

This trail has been created over the last year with extensive grading and a large amount
lumber and includes official looking trail signs and information signs to give the appearance
of being officially approved. It is within 40 yards of the Rattlesnake Trail and the MB Trail
crosses over the Rattlesnake Trail without a clear view for either trail user. It is dangerously
blind for hikers and equestrians.

Beyond the speed and noise of the mountain bikes startling the hikers and equestrians on the
nearby trail, it will also cause mishaps, spook horses, and may cause serious accidents. The
engineering of the trail with its obstacles has grave liability issues for Angeles National
Forest and the local landowners.

This is a one-way track use designed for excessive speed for mountain bikes with many
constructed desired airborne features; it is not multiuse and is an unsafe trail. The
environmental damage of the cutting of foliage and plants, as well as no proper trail grading
with water bars, and the deep cutting into the sides of hills has caused vast damage.

We look forward to your review and recourse in this matter. Please keep us informed of the
status, changes and remedies performed by the National Forest Service on this issue.

With regard,

(Include your name and complete address)
                               Send us your show and other photos!

Did you “catch” a familiar thread running through this newsletter? It’s about preserving our
trails by logging our hours in the saddle. If you haven’t joined ETI National’s Trail Riders
Awards Program [TRAP], please consider it. As an ETI Corral 118 member, join our Trail
Riders Program [TRP] to help keep our trails open for all of our enjoyment. Every single 1/2
hour, full hour, brings us closer to keeping these equestrian trails available to us and future
equestrians. Let me [terri meadows] know you’re a trail rider, send in your photos, and let’s
keep our trails safe for equestrians!
