Editor's Corner
From the Editor Yeah Rain! Now GO away… Hope everyone had a great Memorial Day weekend! This weather will make you wish you had a covered arena or indoor. Perfect occasion to go and support your local tack shop (Equine Corral & The Hay Exchange both carry all the essentials & more!) if you DON'T have the covered option- go get your wellies, raincoats, helmet covers and for goodness sake, don't forget the medicated shampoo, MTG and a soft curry to combat fungus, rain-rot and scratches. While you're at it, time to stock up on fly and mosquito spray. Once the rain clears and the humidity sets in, they'll be merciless. In this issue you'll find new monthly content including Opinions and a column by Wendy Peralta. Look for health and training Tips & Bits starting in July (might involve a local vet interested in contributing to articles and sharing really cool videos through my website). Over time the magazine will develop a theme for each month of the year. Here are some examples: December- 2010 Show Guide January- Year End Awards February- Stallion Issue Other themes could include a particular show or event, fox-hunting, dressage, 4-H, Pony Club, a foal issue, College issue or something fun involving summer travel or cultural/social events. Have an idea for an annual theme? Post it on www.cfequestrian.com under 'Opinions'. Thank you for reading & advertising! Courtney (Bass) Weinzimer

Sommersby Farms in Oviedo
Lauren Kellar and Celtic

Sommersby Farms Team Reserve Circuit Champion for the Level 2 Jumpers on her horse Dino. Georgie Hammond was Grand Champion in Short Stirrup for one of the weeks and won second place in the Bit O' Straw Classic on her new horse Perfect Partner. Sommersby Farms is a 30 stall barn located in the Black Hammock area of Oviedo. We sit on 10 acres and have ample grass pastures; nice sized arenas equipped with a full show jumping course and a boarder tack room that's air conditioned and has been updated with custom wood lockers and a TV/DVD. Being a native to the area, I was fortunate enough to stumble upon this barn, which at the time was a “diamond in the rough”. Eight years ago, the barn was known as a partial board barn and wasn't really into the horse show scene.

Sydni Glick and Henry at GOHJA Now with the loyalty and commitment of my boarders and students, Sommersby has been able to turn itself into the full service show barn that it is today, and we are proud to have a positive family atmosphere. We are actively involved with both local and 'A' rated showing but our barn welcomes all types of riders whether you take one lesson a week just for fun or are a top show competitor in the hunter or jumper ring. When we show locally, we prefer to attend the GOHJA shows that are held at Clarcona Horseman's Park in Apopka once a month. I find that those shows bring a lot of team support to our barn and give our trainers a chance to evaluate where our students are in their riding from month to month which helps them prepare for the next show. HITS and WEF are the barn's favorite show circuits when we travel in Florida. Every year we go to HITS for the whole winter season and this year we had another great season. Our HITS highlights were: Mandy Toor was

Georgie Hammond Marisa Durocher showed for the first time in an “A” show in the Short Stirrup division on her pony Princess Fiona placing 2nd, 4th and 5th. Celtic and I were Reserve Circuit Champion in the Level 3 Jumpers, Grand Champion for week 6 and Reserve Champion for week 4. Celtic moved up to the Level 4 and Level 5 Jumpers during the season. Brian Plostnicks showed at PSJ in February at Canterbury winning 3rd place in the $5000 mini prix aboard Qwazi.

Juta and Bounce at GOHJA Hannah Russell's horse, LaJolie, was Grand

Champion Hunter Mare at the 4H District Show and one of our ponies, Henry, shown by Caroline Jackson, was Grand Champion Hunter Gelding. Juta and her horse Bounce were Grand Champion Child Adult Jumper at the GOHJA show in May. We also hold shows at our barn twice a year. The next show at our barn will be in the fall and we are in the process of getting approval to hold Marshall and Sterling Classes! Twice a year we hold clinics at Sommersby with some of the top equestrians in the industry. Our last clinic was a huge success with Grand Prix and Olympic level Rider Debi Connor of Reddick, FL, as our clinician. Being able to do well at shows has a lot to do with foundation work, horsemanship, regular training for the horse and rider, as well as keeping a healthy and sound horse. At Sommersby, we have relationships with top equine professionals to keep our horses feeling their best and in top working condition. The barn has three trainers, each specializing in different areas. I Contd. Sommersby Farms in Oviedo (Lauren) teach our advanced students who show regularly. Beth Collier teaches our beginner students up to the advanced students, and really gives them a good foundation that prepares them for the show ring. Barb Kellar teaches our beginner to intermediate riders. As an elementary school teacher for Seminole County, she also incorporates fun into lessons for the younger riders. We are currently in the process of revamping our lesson program and bringing in horses suitable for rated shows. More importantly they will have the experience to help teach our students lead changes and to navigate around a proper hunter or jumper course getting the right strides down the lines. When in the market for your next horse or pony, look to our barn. We have a nice selection of hunters, jumpers, and ponies available for sale year round. We have an amazing sales team that will help you find the perfect match for any budget. Leasing is another option and there are different programs available. At Sommersby, we are constantly striving to improve and upgrade our facilities and we welcome visitors, so if it has been awhile since you have seen us-just stop by! We would love to give you a tour. Please feel free to call the barn at 407.366.5798 or visit u s o n t h e w e b a t www.sommersbyfarms.com. We're not your usual barn in that we take a truly personal interest in all our clients and would love for you to join us as we progress and grow.

When the horse gene surfaces in a child, what's an equestrianchallenged parent to do? One mom shares what works for her child and family.

Horse Crazy
By Kathe Jackson In my experience, there are two types of little girls born into this world: those who love dolls and those who love horses. I was one of the former, happily spending my early years playing with winking, wetting, head-turning baby dolls and graduating to the ever-popular bride doll and swimsuit Barbie. So when my 8-pound-6-ounce baby daughter came along, it didn't dawn on me that the doll gene might not be passed on. A series of holidays and birthdays brought a surprisingly large accumulation of real-baby facsimiles, Beach Barbies, Polly Pockets, and even a big-eyed Bratz doll or two. But unloved and untended, these soon found their way into the underbed storage container, the kiss of death for any toy in my household. Instead of baby bottles, tiny high heels, and colorful doll dresses, our floors were littered with miniature hay bales and grooming supplies, various to-scale saddles with attached girths, and Lincoln logs constructed into corrals and jump rings. Here, the plastic horse thrived and proliferated—not the squeezable pink and purple kind with a profusion of curling manes and tails—but realistic-looking stallions and mares, with legs frozen in mid-trot and hard muscles rippling beneath their smooth plastic skin. Yes, I knew fairly early on that my daughter was of the horse-loving persuasion, but no one told me that it might not be just a passing fancy, like dolls are for most girls. As a preschooler, she had the requisite pony ride birthday party. When she turned six, I began dutifully transporting her to weekly horseback riding lessons, learning just enough about tacking up myself to help with the hard parts. Then came a time when we had to stop the lessons for a couple of years. Traveling to the barn we had been going to was no longer convenient, and other family commitments simply got in the way. This was no bad thing, I thought, figuring that time away from the fourlegged creatures would allow other interests to flourish. Obviously, I did not understand the resilience of the horse gene, and before long we were back in the saddle. This time, the barn was much closer, and my daughter was bigger, much more self-sufficient, and more driven. It started out slowly enough, with a private lesson here, a group lesson there, a day every now and then helping out at the barn, grooming horses. But the pace quickly increased, and I had to deliver an ultimatum. There are only so many hours in the day and dollars in the checking account, I said. A choice of where both would be spent had to be made. Faster than a pony on a lunge line, my daughter abandoned her intense, two-year love affair with ice skating in favor of jumping fences and shoveling manure

Adopt a barn cat!
Today, at age 12, my daughter would gladly spend every waking moment at the barn—maybe even a lot of nonwaking ones as well—and there is no sign of that changing. But she is not one of the lucky ones. She—and her family—have other time and financial commitments, so horse ownership and weekly horse shows are not in our here-and-now. Is there a happy solution for those of us with children bearing the horse gene, but who can't make the all-ornothing commitment that the sport seems to require? I believe there is. For my child, the solution is a combination of two things: a wonderful, family-oriented barn with kid-friendly management and an active 4-H club. A partial lease allows my child to have the attachment to a horse that the gene demands without our family bearing the burden of board payments, vet bills, farrier visits, and the overall commitment that accompanies owning a pet the size of —well, a horse. Complementing this, 4-H offers a structured learning program and a few shows that the participant can work toward and participate in. Seminole County's 4-H program is extremely active and much more in line with the inclinations of my outdoor- and horse-oriented daughter than the typical scouting program. For my husband and me, who find the equestrian world to be an everunfolding mystery, these two opportunities offer a doable way for our daughter to enjoy horses as a hobby, progress in skills, and share the fun of her horse-owning friends. And if the horse gene is as dominant as we think it is in our child, the equestrian world will likely have another lifelong fanatic to keep the sport alive and well. Kathe Jackson is a corporate communications professional, a nonrider, and the mother of a barn rat at Sommersby Farms in Oviedo.

A Word from Wendy
I hope to write monthly about things that people may find interesting and hopefully relevant to everyone that owns a hunter or a jumper. This month I chose to discuss specifically the jumper schooling area at USEF sanctioned shows. It is my belief that most people are ignorant about some of the rules and not intentionally disrespectful of them! Beyond the rules as they are stated there are a few other common courtesy practices that more people should be made aware of. At most of the bigger shows you have a starting order. If there are 3 jumps available in the schooling area usually the first person competing will choose their jump and the rest will follow, so if rider one picks the jump on the left, usually rider two will go to the middle and three to the other end. Then, 4 should go to one, 5 should go to 2, 6 should go to three and so forth. Of course multiple students with one trainer can change the order but communication is the key! Speak and share! Here in the US people tend to be courteous about sharing jumps. In Europe you are offered a vertical and an oxer. The jump goes up and down-no one "owns it”. You and probably 3 others jump when you can. Another issue is communication with your in gate staff. They are there to help and guide you through the day! Be punctual and don't make them wait for you to finish up with that final schooling jump. Be ready to go when it is your turn and when the rider before you is in the ring be standing at the in gate ready to go. We are one of the only countries that I am aware of that doesn't pre-load. In Europe and Canada they may have as many as two riders getting ready to go while another is completing their course. My final suggestion is to read your trainer's board and be on time! I try to have a barn meeting nightly and again in the morning to predict who will go when and come up with the 'plan'. This includes whatever preparation your horse may need such as a ride in the morning or a longe or whatever so you are not playing catch up. If your trainer has many rings to be in at the same time ask them where you should be and when. For example be all flatted and ready to jump when they arrive in your schooling area. Know your course! There is nothing worse than a loss due to not being on time or not knowing your course. Same thing goes for the course walks. If your trainer is running all over the show grounds, do them the courtesies of knowing the general course and the jump off! Especially the jump off!

Happy horse showing.

Sport Horse Auctions “It's great to see each country finally developing its own top jumpers. We've always been behind the Europeans but are catching up- maybe not on breeding our own but certainly in developing them. In Europe they have lots of horse auctions. We only have a few and they haven't been successful. Usually people put in (not) their best horse. Nona Garson from The Ridge stable has tried to put on an auction at their farm in Wellington during the WEF and has a hard time selling all the horses. The auctions have not caught on here. Years ago Paul Shockmoeller brought his famous auction the PSI auction to an event in RI called the American Jumping Derby. A fabulous event.- he was very successful that one time but none of the horses proved to be as good as the people thought so it never happened again. Gene Mische put on an auction in Tampa during the shows and the horses sold relatively cheap so the buyers where happy but not the sellers.” –Debbie Stephens, Centennial Farm “I have been asked to participate in some auctions. I feel they take a lot of organizing and advertising. An auction can't just be quickly planned. People are leery of sport horse auctions because they have been to some where horse's prices were run up by owner contacts and then announced sold but were not. Some auctions require the seller to provide x-rays which are very expensive especially when your horse does not sell. Trying to reach the right buyers is another problem. Buyers come expecting to spend little money and are surprised when the horses are priced at $20,000 and above. It is good to have previews where a horse can be shown and maybe even ridden or vetted. This should be agreed upon by the seller. It is hard for a seller to enter their horse in an auction and then have no one bid more than $15,000 on a

$30,000 horse because that is the price range people have money for. If the highest bid is way under value, it could be assumed by future potential buyers that the horse is worth its max bid. Some success has been had with silent bidding. The buyer comes to the site of sale and sees the horse ridden etc. and then makes a silent bid. The bids are accepted for a period of time and then the owner decides if any of the bids have come up to the reserve. In the recent years with the economy the way it is the auctions have not done as well as they had in the past. It is a good idea but a lot of thought, work, and organization are involved and still that is no guaranty that it will be a success. I think it is a great idea but hard to make successful. “–Candace L. Rich, CAV-I Farm “I've been involved in a few sport horse specific auctions and some other breed auctions so I have had a little taste of the scene. I personally think auctions in general can be a good thing. A wellplanned auction can be entertaining for visitors, educational for interested

Jim Taylor BANKER

individuals, profitable for owners and successful for bidders. There are exceptions to the rule however. I've seen thoroughly planned auctions with high quality horses produce very little in sales. I've also been witness to glamorous auctions that sell mediocre horses for very high prices. I think that if you attend an auction with the intent to buy, educate yourself or find a trusted advisor to help you with the process. This leads into the dual agency aspect. I think that if the agents are ethical, knowledgeable and experienced I think that the person can lead buyers in a positive direction. However, the opposite can happen too. I had a conversation with a local sales agent whom I consider very ethical regarding dual agency. This person explained to me that the good agents will have the buyers best interest at heart and will endeavor to meet the requirements for the horse. A good agent will work diligently to make the customer happy as they know that positive experiences generate repeat business or word of mouth referrals. Another aspect to auctions is to make sure that a trusted vet could either be there with you or evaluate the pre-purchase exam reports. One's personal vet knows the requirements of their clients. They will be able to best advise the client on any medical issues that arise.” –Laurie Ann Salmi, Pink Horse Performance Looking for a Part-Time Job in the Equestrian World? “I hate auctions!

From Wendy Low We just had a wonderful USDF May Days show with 122 horses, 3 rings, 3 judges, and lots of happy people. The Freestyle Challenge was exciting with 32 rides ranging from FEI Young Riders to First Level to Intermediarre. A complete list of winners will be on the results page of the website: www.canterburyshowplace.com. The new footing was a huge hit. Riders gave it thumbs up. We've now placed it in the outdoor warm up ring as well, it helps keep the dust down and is spongy, level and the horses love it. The rides this year were fantastic with some scores in the 70's. There were many fine horses and Erin Brinkman's Imminence is one to watch in the future. The pair walked off with Training and First Level Highpoint. The Juniors and Young riders came out in force, Mary Cameron-Rollins (see photo below) took top freestyle FEI honors and a check for $200 with 73.750% and Katrin Dagge on Dream of Love won the First-Third Level Freestyle Challenge with a 73.125%. The weather although a tad hot was great for showing. The whole feel of the show was energetic, positive with lots of laughs going on in the show office mostly due to Alex

Robertson's look on life! This is the 5th year of the May Day Qualifier and it keeps getting bigger and better. Next year we hope to go 3 days and offer the High Performance Horse classes. Since we had a wait list we will plan on 4 judges. Hope to see everyone at the October 3-4 Ride Lite Show! Prize list available June 13th. Always something interesting at Canterbury!

GOHJA, Inc. 31st Annual Benefit Horse Show
From Wendy Trocano WOW!!! What a success!!! With a crew of mostly volunteers, the Greater Orlando Hunter Jumper Association organized and presented its 31st Benefit Show. This is the one show a year that members get together to put on a show with all the proceeds going to the organization. Those monies are then used to host the annual awards banquet. Steve and Heidi Lengyl officiated over the two days, judging 170 entries in all levels and types of classes. There were 4 Hunter Classics sponsored by McAbee Veterinary Hospital, Brookmore Farms, Waters Edge, and Wendover Place and one Jumper Stake sponsored by Mardebri Manor. Gracie Ryan and her pony Pirouette scored two 90s to win the Waters Edge Short/Long Stirrup Classic! Many thanks

to all who made these special classes possible. GOHJA introduced a new line of products all containing the GOHJA logo by giving these items as the awards for class winners. Hats, T-shirts, aprons, notebooks, bags, etc. were a big hit and our now available at cafepress.com for purchase. GOHJA's new Fundraising Chairperson, Lauren Kellar, organized a silent auction of several different types of baskets donated by local businesses and individuals. Bidding lasted both days and was hotly contested for the Cinco de Mayo basket, which was eventually won by Nancy Hirt. Enjoy! This year's awards banquet will be held November 21, 2009 at the Orlando Marriott Lake Mary in the Grand Ballroom from 6:30 to Midnight. Plans are already being made as to menus and types of awards. Invitations to this fun-filled evening will be sent the first week of October. Check out the website gohja.org for all the details. The bottom line… this was the most successful show GOHJA has ever had. The Board wishes to thank everyone who donated time and money to help make the 31st the best yet!

Fox Lea Farm:
Schooling Shows to Grand Prix
By Courtney Weinzimer

Aldrich-Farrell; Clay Farrell; Course Designer: Jamie Alder; Winners of Grand Prix: Aaron Vale and Tarco, owned by Joan Kalman.

“We like Fox Lea Farm. The show rings are nice, the footing is very good...it is important for a horse show in Florida to have footing that can hold up with a lot of rain, and they have done a great job of that. Besides the facility being nice, we like the owners and all who help to put the horse shows on, the secretary Angie, Leanne who helps manage the show, Nigel Hale the announcer, they hire good judges for the shows. (This privately owned, 46 acre show venue in Venice, FL hosts over 30 shows every year and has been doing so since 1985. They successfully cover all levels of showing, from a non-rated “economically friendly” schooling series (8 shows) to not just 1 but 3 Grand Prix show jumping events each year. There are 3 dressage shows, 4 “C” rated shows and 9 “A” rated. This year the USEF South Zone 4 Championship will be hosted during their November “A” show, one which also boasts a $25K Grand Prix. Fox Lea has accumulated a strong following amongst Central Florida show barns. Here's what some of them have to say about Fox Lea Farm: “I like the footing, the bank and that they are trying to have real Grand Prix' there and attracting some good riders by having good course designers etc. I've suggested that they purchase a water jump as it would be a fabulous place for juniors and especially young riders to come and learn how to jump water. Since Wellington is the only other place in Florida that has a water jump it would be another “feather in their cap” so to speak. HITS Ocala does not offer a water jump, nor do the events at Mississippi or Atlanta. I think they are on the right track and it (Fox Lea) would be a great facility to host some young rider training sessions!” –Wendy Peralta, Seabreeze Farm We also like the area, the hotels are close and there are many great places to eat, and the beaches are close to the show. In the summer the "camp" themed shows are great for the kids, plus they are still "A" rated shows....certainly a "win win" situation” -Mary Eufemia, Ravenwood Farm

lovely show with nice jumps and good space to school and flat in. I particularly enjoy the larger shows at Fox Lea, the previous one we attended in April and the “Camp” series, due to the larger purses”-Brock Clermont, Clermark Equestrian LLP “I love the footing in the rings. Also the grass jump field is so much fun to show in!” Peggy Stevens, Brookmore Farms

John Paul Jimenez at recent Open Show “Our barn loves to show at Fox Lea because they fit in 3 shows in about a week and a half. The show is also geared towards kids, and lets everyone dress up in something different each day, and the kids really think that is fun! The older kids and parents from our barn love the fact that the beach is so close, and we make a vacation out of it while we are down there.” Lauren Kellar, Sommersby Farms “I enjoy competing at Fox Lea during the summer for its casual atmosphere and it's fun for the kids!” Jenni Medlock, Showtime LLC “Both my horses and I enjoy jumping on the large grass field, which has a similarly consistency to mine, soft yet firm sand with nice grass. The owners and management have been extremely kind, welcoming, and helpful to me…even though I am from Canada! I recently canceled my arrangements to Aiken, SC, to come to Fox Lea for the $25K Grand Prix. The location is close in proximity to my barn so it's very convenient. Affordability is another reason why I take young and green horses plus they get exposure at a

Roger Seitzmeir over the bank jump Fox Lea is one of few venues to incorporate a bank jump element into their jumper field. This jump can be ridden by going up the ramp over a fence and down the ramp. It is also used side to side jumping up the bank and off the bank, and some course designers add a fence on the jump down side. This jump was used in the Platinum Performance/USEF Show Jumper Talent Search at the Venice H/J Spring Concours I held in April 2009. The bank was originally designed and constructed by the late Juan Hernandez before his accident in 2002. He was a well respected and liked rider, trainer and course designer from Tampa. Fox Lea dedicated the jump to Juan after his death. The only changes since were in creating another ramp on the west side of the jump. This redesign was possible with the help of Pablo Gamboa and was reconstructed by Larry Ballard in May 2008.

UCF Student Finishes Second in the Nation!
From Wendy Trocano Alisha Mays, a sophomore in legal studies at the University of Central Florida, was named the IHSA National Reserve Champion in the Individual Novice Equitation on the Flat division at the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association's Hunter Seat National Championship on April 23, 2009. The finals were held at the Miller Coliseum in Mufreesboro, Tenn. with 18 teams competing. Lesli Isaacson has been the coach of the UCF Equestrian Team for 5 years. This year thru dedication and hard work Lesli trained the team to be first of the Florida schools and 4th in the zone. Home base for the club is Wendover Place where Lesli and sister Wendy Trocano teach and train. Try-outs were held last August where Lesli chose 15 out of 30+ riders to comprise the team. These individuals were then placed in one or two divisions depending on their riding skills and show records. Divisions range from Walk-trot to Open Equitation

and riders earn points thru their placings. Each division has a maximum number of points that must be earned before a rider can move on to the next division. Team members take weekly lessons with Lesli and ride as often as they can to perfect their skills. This is the first year UCF has sent a rider to Nationals. Riding in IHSA is completely different than hunter-jumper shows in that the host school provides horses and each rider draws a name from a hat. Riders are not allowed to warm-up but must enter the ring cold and perform. For the finals Lesli and Alisha arrived a day early to watch the horses schooled and to get an idea how they would need to be ridden. Alisha had a good draw and made the top four to perform a test before the judges. In only two years on the team Alisha was awarded 2nd in the country. Congratulations Alisha and Lesli on a job well done!
