Have an extra horse? Donate it to the Pennsylvania State Police!

“HERSHEY (AP) — The Pennsylvania State Police are asking for donated horses to join a Hershey-based mounted patrol unit.

The agency on Wednesday issued a call for geldings between 5 and 15 years old. Officials say draft horses or draft-crosses are preferable.

The 26-horse unit performs searches, crowd control, security and patrols, as well as participates in parades and similar events.”

Trick Riding in the Future

Hello! GEC was offered the opportunity to host a trick riding clinic. It will be a 2 day event for about 6 hours each day with a lunch break. You do not need your own horse unless you would like to bring it. They provide trained horses and tack for the sport! The fee will be around $300 and there is a maximum of 12 participants. If you would be interested, please let us know as soon as possible so we can get it scheduled!

Fly Protection

It is almost that season again. Here at Groveland we are gearing up to take on those pesky flies this summer. We have ordered the Fly Predators, started feeding SimpliFly, and have bottles of fly spray on hand. Game on flies.

Learn more about the different types of flies and what you can do to prevent them here:

“Fly control can seem like a daunting task. However, by targeting the specific flies that are attacking your horse, you can better help protect your horse.” http://www.drsfostersmith.com/pic/article.cfm?aid=1785

 

The L Word

From Cadence Ridge Equine:

Do you have or know of a horse that is suffering from laminitis or founder? It doesn’t just effect the hoof! When there is a rotation of the coffin bone it puts stress on the deep digital flexor tendon, which is then connected to the muscles higher up in the leg and shoulder. Also, a horse that is experiencing any kind of pain in their front feet will try to take weight off of them and use their neck to try to lift off. This makes the rhomboid or crest muscles over developed and tense, sometimes creating knots. Equine sports massage and Electro-acupressure can be used to relieve some of the tension and make the horse more comfortable.

There is a magnitude of possibilities and things massage can help with! Everyday I’m still amazed at the possibilities! Keep looking back as I will be sharing some of the things I can help and work on! if your horse has a specific problem, just ask and we’ll come up with a program for them!

How The Hind End Matters

Our on site massage therapist recommends this read:

“The hind end is the power house or “engine” of the horse. Proper care is vital for you horses wellbeing and success!” http://equinewellnessmagazine.com/massage-therapy-for-your-horses-hindquarters-2/
