  • Create a Parasite Management Plan For Your PA Horse Farm

    Pa Horse Farm

    As the weather warms up, flies, worms, and other parasites come out of hibernation and begin their life cycles – using our horses as their hosts. Worm infestations can cause weight loss, colic, and other digestive problems, so it’s important that horse and farm owners take steps to control parasites. In the temperate climate of Pennsylvania, parasite management is an important part of maintaining horse health.

     

    According to veterinarian and equine parasitologist Dr. Martin Nielsen, the basis of every equine parasite control program is twice-yearly deworming in the spring and fall. At this time of year, horses on PA horse farms should be treated for strongyles, and in the fall a dewormer effective against both strongyles and tapeworms should be used.

     

    In addition to deworming horses twice a year, fecal egg counts (FEC) should be performed before and after deworming to determine if the chosen drugs are effective against the parasites on your farm. An FEC measures the number of parasite eggs that a horse sheds in its manure, and are important since parasites can become resistant to dewormers, and different products work on different farms depending on the particular parasites present. If the number of eggs on your horse’s FEC decreases after deworming, the product you’ve chosen is working well. Horses that have consistently higher egg counts may need to be dewormed more than twice a year.

     

    Horses who travel frequently should also be dewormed more frequently to prevent foreign parasites from invading your PAhorse farm. Show horses don’t need to be dewormed before every competition, but giving anti-parasitic drugs more often than twice a year can help reduce the risk of introducing excess parasites to horses that remain on the property year-round.

     

    Deworming protocols aren’t the only measure you can take to protect your horses from parasites. Manure management around your PA horse farm is just as crucial. Keeping pastures and turn out areas clean of manure is essential to parasite control, since horses are most likely to pick up worm eggs while grazing. Proper pasture rotation as well as dragging pastures to break up manure also serve to reduce parasites.

     

    Taking these few simple measures against parasites can help ensure that you and your horses have a happy, healthy year.

  • Celebrate Spring With Point-To-Point Races in Eastern PA!

    Spring is FINALLY starting to grace Eastern PA with its presence, and what better way for equestrians to celebrate than with a point-to-point race held over some of our state’s most beautiful countryside.

     

    On April 6, 2014 the Radnor Hunt will be hosting the 72nd Brandywine Hills Point-to-Point Races. This event will be an exciting, fun-filled time for Pennsylviana horse enthusiasts of all ages. Adults will enjoy the opportunity to tailgate with friends, and kids will have a great time with stick pony races, face painting, and games.

     

    The main event, though, will be the point-to-point races. Riders will gallop over a three-mile course that winds through the Eastern PA countryside, jumping several imposing timber and brush obstacles along the way. The races will begin at noon and feature competition for novice, heavyweight, open, and foxhunter divisions.

     

    Admission ranges from $20 to $150 per car, depending on whether you opt for standard parking or a prime tailgating spot.

     

    For more information on this exciting PA horse event, visit the Brandywine website: www.brandywinewatershed.org.

  • PA Rider Silva Martin On The Road To Recovery

    On March 5, dressage rider Silva Martin from Chester County sustained a head injury after falling from a horse while riding at her winter base in Wellington, FL. Thankfully, Silva was wearing a helmet and the damage was not as serious as it could have been. She has been hospitalized in Florida since then, and has been making steady improvements. Her husband, eventer Boyd Martin, has been posting regular updates online, and is optimistic that she will be able to return home to Pennsylvania soon. We wish Silva the best as she continues to recover!
  • CANTER Gives PA Horses A Chance At a Second Career

    The options are seemingly endless when shopping for horses in PA. Do you buy from a trainer, breeder, dealer, or auction?

     

    Riders with plenty of experience who want an athletic, versatile partner might opt to purchase a Thoroughbred racehorse from off the track. These horses are intelligent, trainable, and able to compete in any discipline. While they do require careful training to learn a new job, off-track Thoroughbreds (OTTB’s) make wonderful riding horses after their racing careers are over.

     

    If an OTTB from a Pennsylvania racetrack is on your radar, the folks at CANTER can help you find the perfect one!

     

    CANTER stands for the Communication Alliance to Network Thoroughbred Ex-Racehorses. This program started as a way to connect Thoroughbred trainers with prospective buyers in an effort to help ex-racehorses find new homes. Today the website serves as a successful hub for those who want to sell OTTB’s to good homes, and those who are looking for their next horse.

     

    If you’re shopping for an OTTB in PA, make the CANTER website your first stop! The website lists dozens of horses available for sale, from seasoned racers to horses who just didn’t make the cut. If what you’re looking for isn’t advertised on the PA site, check out the Mid-Atlantic pages too. Whether you are looking for a mare, gelding, or stallion, a show hosre or a trail buddy, you’re likely to find the PA horse you’re looking for on CANTER.
