From Top Finishes at NSBA and APHA World- Journey Back to Respiratory Health For 2-Year-Old Show Horse

From Top Finishes at NSBA and APHA World- Journey Back to Respiratory Health For 2-Year-Old Show Horse

This is a relatively common cause of respiratory problems in performance horses. It involves the triangular-shaped piece of soft cartilage, the epiglottis, that normally flips up to protect the airway when swallowing. This action prevents food or water from going down the airway (trachea) and getting into the lungs. During exercise, the soft palate should move in a way that opens the airway for maximum airflow. With dorsal displacement, the soft palate displaces upward, obstructing the trachea and limiting air intake.

How Do We Measure a Horse’s Quality of Life?

Randle explains “Heart rate (HR), heart rate variability (HRV) and cortisol are the most commonly measured physiological indicators of equine emotion. Other suggested indicators include eye temperature, respiratory rate, and salivary alpha amylase but many of these lack validation in relation to association with emotional state. There were methodological problems with all of the measures we looked at, such as the lack of standardisation of reporting and interpretation.”

2021 Will be the Year of Collaboration For Horse Shows

Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, many groups struggled to host competitive equestrian events that yielded a profit large enough to be considered “successful” and provide the opportunity for future shows to grow. A best practice for planning the financial success of a horse show requires that the revenue generated from stalls should pay for the rental of the facility. Most clubs start with a working budget from the profits made off the previous year’s show. This money covers the upfront costs associated with the show, such as the hiring of judges, show staff, and for the purchase of awards. If a group is fortunate enough to gather sponsorship money, that has a significant impact on the ability for them to “profit” from hosting the event.
