Vol. 2, Issue 2, February 2010
The mission of the Hunter Development Incentive Fund (HDIF) is to encourage and reward the breeding of quality show hunters bred and foaled in North America.
Hunter Development Incentive Fund
The USHJA Hunter Development Incentive Fund has been developed to encourage and reward the breeding of quality show hunters bred and foaled in North America. Young hunter development and hunter breeding will be spotlighted through HDIF classes at exclusively selected special member events. The program is currently open for nominations and for its inaugural year the USHJA is offering special limited-time discounts for stallion and horse owners.
USHJA members have three opportunities to participate in the HDIF program: as stallion owners, as the nominators of foals or as the owners of competing horses. Nominated stallion owners will earn 10 percent of a foal’s HDIF lifetime winnings. The stallion nomination fee is based on mares bred, according to the stallion’s breeding report. Foal nominators will earn 10 percent of the nominated foal’s lifetime HDIF winnings. Competing horse owners will earn 80 percent of the horse’s lifetime HDIF winnings. More information, as well as stallion and horse nomination forms, can be found on the Hunter Development Incentive Fund page of the USHJA website, www.ushja.org.
How it Works
Each point earned at a USHJA-approved event by a HDIF-nominated horse will be worth money. Enrolled horses will also be able to earn prize money at HDIF events. Only the top 5 HDIF Special Member Event individual class points will count towards ribbons, points or any potential year-end payout and awards. HDIF-nominated horses will not be eligible to compete in more than 10 HDIF Special Member Events. The USHJA is looking to offer a total of 50 classes during the 2010 competition year. Managers of all rated competitions that are interested in hosting a HDIF event are asked to contact the USHJA for complete specifications. HDIF events will include both hunter breeding and performance classes for yearlings, two-year olds, three-year olds and four-year olds. Five and six-year old classes will be added in 2011 and 2012, respectively. Performance classes will consist of both under-saddle and over-fences classes created to showcase a young horse’s ability.
What Makes This Program Different?
This innovative program offers owners age-appropriate classes that allow them to showcase and develop young hunters through uniquely designed young hunter courses. This affordable program will reward the breeders and owners of American-bred hunters at special events across the nation. For a limited time, you can nominate your stallion at a discounted rate − buy 3 breeding seasons and get one free or buy 5 breeding seasons and get 2 free.
What People are Saying
Professionals in the industry see the program as a much needed boost for the American-bred horse and an excellent starting point for young horses. “The welfare and development of young hunters is the key to the structure of the Hunter Development Incentive Fund. With input from breeders and trainers from across the country, we have designed classes that are age-appropriate to help develop and educate the young hunters.” − Tish Quirk, USHJA Breeder’s Committee Chairman

Will you be showing get of your stallion or other nominated stallions? “Yes, Apiro will be nominated to the program and we have kept 3 offspring to compete ourselves.” Why did you join? I think it is a good start to promote North American Breeders. Also, I had mare owners who are breeding to my stallion this year request that I nominate him. What are your expectations? I am hoping that North American Breeders and owners of young American Bred horses will support this program, if so, the program will grow and benefit them. I am hoping that it will be a great tool to support North American Breeders and encourage buyers of horses to stay in the USA to purchase the exceptional horses that are being bred here.
We asked a few of our HDIF stallion owners to share their opinions about the program:
“My introduction to the HDIF came during the USHJA Annual meeting in Nashville, TN in 2008. Our stallions have been nominated to the IJF for years and I was pleased to find another program that highlights American breeders and their horses. One of the things that caught my eye was that the nomination fees were reasonable. I like the fact that the fees are based on the number of mares bred and I think that should encourage more stallion owners to participate. The program is well thought out and offers a nice progression for the offspring to show from in hand yearlings to under saddle older horses. Also, the classes have realistic performance requirements for the young horses. And the number of qualifying classes is limited which will hopefully decrease point chasing. We are not primarily hunter breeders, but have a nice yearling that we are planning to show in the HDIF classes this year.” ~Maggie Sjoberg, GA Conifer & Mr. Wizard Q&A with Barbara Sikkink, OK Apiro What do you think about the program? “The new HDIF program is very interesting especially since it is supported by USHJA and will possibly offer a better selection of classes at more venues.” Why did you join? “Joining supports USHJA efforts to promote North American breeding.” What are your expectations? “Increased awareness and promotion of breeding in North American as well as

My stallion is standing to the public for the first time in 2010, so his foals will not be on the ground yet for showing in 2010 but I am looking ahead for future years.

What do you like about the program? “The low nomination fees for young horses as well as the plans to offer 50 events nationwide and to spread those events equally 10 per each of the 5 regions. With the USEF hunter breeding divisions, certain regions have an unfair advantage due to the large number of the hunter breeding classes offered within a region allowing those breeders to achieve high year standings by simply attending a large number of shows rather than by actually doing well. The HDIF program appears to have acknowledged that problem and have addressed it. Classes being offered from yearling to 6 years of age are a huge benefit.”

you to remove them or start paying board. I based my selections on pedigree and conformation. The cost is minimal for the initial purchase but you do have to wait a very long time to see what you have. In the end you have to enjoy the process and watching and waiting for the kids to grow up! This year we will watch again but this time with our own mares bred to two of the stallions at Seabreeze. Both stallions compete. One was a real old fashioned "live" pasture breeding that we did right at the farm and the other was an artificial insemination. Two more surprise packages but with ties to our family. Best of luck to all the mare owners deciding on whom to breed to for 2010 and to all of those waiting for their babies to be born. I will be glued to the internet come April but I feel for all the hard core breeders that spend countless hours waiting for the girls to pop. Without their patience we wouldn't have all these great,
Opinions: HDIF Continued:
“I am excited to have a forum to show case American bred hunters. As a breeder who has bred and shown my own stallions these classes give me the ability to get exposure on my young stock and to give them valuable show experience at quality venues. I joined because the majority of my business is the breeding and training of my young stock. I have bred my stallions using foundation thoroughbred lines mixing with the elite holsteiner jumping lines. This gives me a place to highlight my stallion that has been specifically bred to compete in the hunter ring. I am hoping that bringing his get to USEF horse shows where I am already competing utilizes my time more efficiently and allows my young horses to gain valuable experience and now that my young horses have a venue to showcase their talents, it will give my breeding program valuable exposure. at this time the program is so new I do not know what should be done differently- time will tell but with the backing of the USHJA and the promotion of hunter breeding it can only be a win-win situation for me as a breeder who has a love for the American hunter. I have always been a hunter rider and having classes specifically designed for me to be able to ride and bring along my young horses in a safe manner that challenges them without overfacing them at these young growing stages is invaluable.” ~ Lynn Reed, NY Spellbound
With the breeding season upon us, many of us are eagerly awaiting the birth of the 2010 foal crop..At Seabreeze we have two mares due to foal and we are excited for their arrival. I have sent both of my mares to a breeding farm to be birthed by professionals. With our show and family schedule as it is, it would be impossible to give the necessary time commitment to the foaling process. Last year we had 4 foals born. I purchased two of them in a very unique way that I would like to share with you. It is called in in-utero purchase and it is just that! Before the foal is born the price is set. One pays for the foal before birth. Assuming the foal is born healthy and with no defects (there are many contracts to sign) when born it is yours. I especially enjoyed the process because I was able to watch the entire foaling on the Internet. You have a "due-date" and then you start watching! It is addictive. Sort of like an adult version of Santa is coming and you're not sure what you are going to get! When the foal is born they hold up a card that says filly or colt. I loved being on the road at a show, tuning in and poof there was a foal! Of course I had to watch with many false alarms, and try to get enough sleep to function. I thoroughly enjoyed the process and would recommend it to anyone that has a passion for babies. Both of mine were born healthy. In my case there was no extra charge for boarding and once weaned, they like

A Family Affair
Interview with Stacia, Ashley & Rachel Purcell of Seafire Sporthorses in Elkton
By Courtney Weinzimer
How, where & when did the family business begin? I (Stacia) grew up with horses/breeding in Montana in the 70’s and 80’s. I always knew that I wanted to be involved in breeding horses as adult. I have always been “horse crazy”. Got away from horses during college and then purchased my first horse (as an adult) in 2000. The girls started showing interest in riding “English” and we purchased their first horse in 2001. We started actively breeding horses in 2003 with our first foals born in 2004. We initially started out breeding primarily Selle Francais (French Warmbloods). We have since expanded our breeding focus to include both Dutch (KWPN) and Belgian (BWP) warmbloods. We still continue to focus on breeding to stallions in these other registries that have a French based pedigree. We typically breed horses geared towards the hunter or jumper ring. What do you most enjoy about the business? I graduated college with a bachelor’s degree in dietetics (nutrition) and masters in business administration. Both of those degrees have helped me in the horse industry both in being more skilled with the dietary care of my horses and their specific needs and the business side of developing and running a business. I enjoy the breeding side of the horse business. The girls most enjoy showing the horses. What roles do the girls in the business? After Ashley graduated from high school she began taking on a more active role and now acts as our barn manager/resident horse trainer. She has been involved in showing in dressage, the hunters and the jumpers. She has a unique attribute in that she is only 4’11” and is an excellent rider. She is able ride not only the small ponies but also the large horses. So in the last year we have started breeding some German Sport ponies, which we plan on
developing into hunters and jumpers. Ashley is now starting most of our young horses under saddle. In 2008, Rachel began to actively show in the hunters with her TB ‘Imagine That’ and in late 2009 she started showing in the jumpers with her Welsh-cross pony. Rachel’s jumper pony is a 13.1 hh flashy black pony named Melody Tyme and he lovesto jump. He has been very good and forgiving with her as she learns to show in the jumper ring. Ashley’s primary riding horse is an athletic bay Selle Francais mare named Katie D Car, who was bred by Fernando Cardenas in Citra, FL. She has shown Katie in dressage, in the hunter ring and now is showing her in the jumper ring. We plan on breeding her in the future (via ET) to our new stallion, Richard. She has several ponies that she has started under saddle and is training them for sale. Congratulations on your recent acquirement of Richard. What prompted you to purchase your own stallion and why him? On January 3rd, 2010 we purchased the imported KWPN stallion, Richard (shown as Decadent) who has shown up through the Grand Prix jumpers and is approved for breeding with the Belgian Warmblood Registry. In 2007 we had bred two mares to him and we were impressed with the two fillies that were born in 2008. We had been planning on extending our breeding program to include several stallions so when the opportunity to purchase Richard was presented to us, it was a unanimous decision by the girls and I [luckily my husband, an endocrinologist (who is not a horse person) agreed]. Richard is an easy stallion to manage and we felt that he would be a great improvement to our breeding program. We plan on presenting Richard to several additional Warmblood Registries for breeding approval this year. What do you most enjoy about the business? I love the research and the planning that goes into breeding each foal. I enjoy looking at and learning about different pedigrees and what bloodlines cross best with each other. It is exciting
to meet each foal when they are born and see the result of each breeding. With each breeding we attempt to produce offspring that are an enhancement of their parents. What advice might you have for aspiring breeders? Do your research before breeding. This is extremely important to produce quality foals.

In 1996 we opened our retail store and closed Tenney’s Shoe repair. Jim started doing most of the chaps and still did riding boot alterations. In 1999 when our son Valen was born, our roles changed quite a bit. Jim took over all the Mobile store work, did most of the chaps and a lot of the other repairs. I did all the saddle repair and

Equine Embryo Transfer
By Vickie Meisenburg, DVM
Embryo transfer in the horse has evolved into a viable commercial option for horse breeders around the world. As techniques for embryo retrieval and transfer have become streamlined
very good candidates for embryo transfer. These mares get pregnant but for other reasons lose their pregnancies later in gestation. There may be several reasons for the mare to get pregnant but not be able to see the pregnancy through. The list of reasons for this unfortunate situation is beyond the scope of this article but miscarriages that are due to faulty genetics will not be salvageable even with the help of a healthy recipient mare. The basics of embryo transfer procedures and keys for success Please review the following vocabulary that is necessary to have a complete working grasp of embryo transfer. A simple misunderstanding of the medical vocabulary used by professionals familiar with the procedure can lead to some serious miscommunications! Vocabulary Donor Mare ~ the mare who’s genetics is desired Recipient ~ the mare whose genetics aren’t desired but is needed to gestate and raise the desired foal from the Donor Mare Egg ~ a mare’s individual contribution reproductively Sperm ~ a stallion’s genetic contribution reproductively Embryo ~ the early pregnancy resulting from the union of the desired stallion mated with the desired mare. The embryo will gestate into a foal Embryo Transfer ~ the removal of an embryo from the donor mare’s uterus to be placed and gestated within a different mare’s uterus Embryo Flush ~ the veterinary lavage procedure used to remove the embryo from the donor’s uterus Embryo Vitrification ~ the freezing of equine embryos The valuable mare, the embryo donor, is bred by the stallion of your choice as usual with particular and close attention to recording the exact day of her ovulation. She can be bred with fresh, chilled or even frozen semen. It is extremely important that the exact

practically and more easily repeatable, even the general equine practitioner with a modest interest in reproduction can confidently offer this valuable option for their owners with good results for the investment. Success percentages range from 50 - 80% depending on the quality of the embryos worked with and the skills of the practitioners involved. There are several excellent reasons for a horse owner to seriously consider embryo transfer. Uninterrupted performance career of the mare Talented mares can continue to climb up the ladder of success without having to excuse themselves for a year or more of “Mom-duty”. Multiple foals Mares with outstanding genetics and talent could produce more than one foal per year and maximize her genetic contribution over her lifetime. 2 to 4 foals a year is a realistic goal for a healthy and reproductively normal mare. Be certain to contact your mare’s registry to ensure that more than one registrable foal per year is allowed. For mares belonging to several registries, it could be possible to register a foal to each registry for a single year. Inability to carry to term Mares who don’t have difficulty getting pregnant but who have a history of having troubles STAYING pregnant are
day of ovulation and even an approximate time of ovulation on that day is detected by the veterinarian while using an ultrasound machine. The tighter the management of the donor mare, the better chances of recovering a healthy and suitable e m b r y o f o r t r a n s f e r. T h e requirements of a good recipient for the impending embryo transfer must be stringent! She must be in good health overall and reproductively. We are asking a lot from her if you think about it! We will invade her uterus with an embryo that is not hers and ask her to accept it as her own. Her cycle also needs to be running parallel to the donor’s cycle. This means that even though she is not being bred, she needs to be ultrasounded daily for identification of her exact day of ovulation as well. She should be of good character since she will be raising your new foal until weaning. The size of the recipient should reflect the potential genetic size and overall shape of the embryos genetics. For example draft horse type embryos should be transfered into draft mares. Warmblood embryos should be transferred into mares that resemble warmbloods more closely than draft horse mares do. Light riding horse embryos should be transfered into light riding horse style recipients. It can matter for gestation and parturition and it does matter for lactation and the healthy growth of the delivered foal. In about one week, traditionally 7 days after the donor mare’s ovulation, the donor mare’s uterus is lavaged with special sterile fluid with great care and attention to technique. The embryo is found under a microscope in the lab where it is then graded, measured, washed and either prepped for shipment to a commercial embryo transfer recipient herd or transfered on site into a suitable recipient. Embryos, if properly handled and prepped, can be flown, same day, chilled to slow it’s metabolism to a very distant recipient herd if that is your only option with excellent results. After the donor mare has been lavaged for the embryo, she is given a
Equine Embryo in Wash Dish leuteolytic agent so that her cervix may open. Despite any veterinarians best efforts at performing embryo transfer, the procedure is never 100% sterile. It is best to “short cycle” the donor back so that if she does get some inflammation in her uterus secondary to the procedure her body will be in the best position to take care of it naturally. In addition, there is always a possibility that a second embryo has “hung back” in her oviducts! If that was the case the lavage will not have access to this “stow-away” and she will get pregnant! If she has been short cycled back with a leuteolytic agent, she will not stay pregnant. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure in the face of both potential complications! The donor mare is now free to go back to work that evening if she needs to. The now pregnant recipient should be returned to her normal routine. Management of the mare, post transfer, can vary depending on her attending veterinarian’s experience. At EquiGen, the mare is let back out with her particular herd of “friends”. She is carefully monitored for any signs of embryo rejection or trouble via ultrasound and any issues are addressed as needed. The embryo can usually be detected from 3 to 10 days after transfer. Commercial herds have a variety of contracts from recipient mare leases to purchase with a buy back option. Equine embryo vitrification has come a long way in a short amount of time. Horse embryos, like horse sperm are tough to freeze and subsequently thaw in a form that is useful! But with some major improvements in thetechniques and process, freezing equine embryos in an experienced practitioner’s lab is a viable option for the long term preservation of the mares valuable genetics. Pregnancy success rates using vitrified embryos have been in the 50 - 70% range. Considering that natural coupling of a mare and stallion is
Good type and sized mare for this warmblood filly in the 60% range, those odds are not so bad. If you are interested in embryo transfer for your valuable mare, talk to your general equine veterinary practitioner about any options that they are aware of. There are many options available and in a variety of prices. With a little bit of asking around and some planning you could have some very desirable foals on the way for 2011 and still have your favorite mare forging forward successfully towards the winners circle!

Trot (Thoroughbred Retirement of Tampa) A little info about us...TROT is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to the safe retirement, rehabilitation, and adoption of Tampa's racing Thoroughbreds.

Chronicles of C FL contenders on their journeys to the 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games
between them, of mutual respect and compassion,” Bower said. In addition to being known as a rescue horse, Jamaica is also known for his quirky personality and temperament. Bower said it was easy to see that Jamaica, who was named the 2008 USEF Horse of the Year, enjoyed being in the limelight. “Jamaica knew he was a star and I could tell how much he appreciated the attention he receives,” Bower said. “He is also very curious and was wondering what I was doing there. While walking down the road he turned around to see what I was doing behind him. You could almost hear him ask the question.” Bower said she is pleased with the photos of Chester and Jamaica and hopes his fans also enjoy them. “The story behind Jamaica being rescued really makes the relationship between Chester and Jamaica even more unique,” Bower said, adding that combining her two passions of photography and animals is her greatest joy. While their images have forever been captured on film, Weber is intent on continuing to make headlines and break records. Weber’s goals in 2010 include winning the United States National Four-In-Hand Combined Driving Championship for an eighth time and competing in the 2010 World Equestrian Games. Weber plans for Jamaica to join him in both competitions, just as he did at all seven national championships and at WEG in 2002 in Spain and in 2006 in Germany.

Lovely Extravagance is back in full work after his big European event (Pau CCI **** Oct ’09) Hilda and X are back on a serious training program with Anne Gribbons (Dressage) and Karen O Connor (xc).They recently (Jan 9,10th) completed an Open Intermediate Horse Trial. No ribbons earned as Hilda wanted to ride conservatively xc in the after math of Pau. X and Hilda cantered rather slowly and most correctly around the xc course to show officials how nicely X can go. “Shame that some official’s opinion and ruling can somehow dictate how one should ride!!”

Chester Weber, Ocala Chester Weber and Horse of the Year Jamaica
Photographed by Internationally Known Equine Photographer Barbara Bower Ocala, FL (January 14, 2010) – Jamaica and Chester Weber, the well-known record-setting horse and combined driver, made headlines in 2009 not only for winning the United States National Four-In-Hand C o m b i n e d D r i v i n g Championship for the seventh time but also for Jamaica’s ragsto-riches story of being rescued from a slaughter house before joining Weber’s team. The bond between Weber and Jamaica is deep, and thanks to the photography skills of internationally known equine photographer Barbara Bower, their
partnership has been captured on film for the enjoyment of equestrian fans everywhere. Bower, who traveled to Weber’s Live Oak Stud in Ocala for the photography session, said she enjoyed watching the relationship between the famous duo. “Photographing Chester and Jamaica was very easy. You could tell that there was a very strong bond

Our first two shows were lightly, but enthusiastically attended due to Holiday weekend dates and then record cold for our January shows. Scott Hofstetter judged the hunters and great jumps were provided, decorated and courses rode well designed by Chris Hickey . We have decided to drop the Saturday schedule and run only the Jumper day on February 7th. We will also have add-back money classes at each height to give everyone a chance to earn some money! We are hoping for warmer weather and of course the nice covered arena & schooling ring help out. Come out and practice before HITS!
