Farrington Takes Top Honors in $250,000 FTI Grand Prix

Bridgehampton, NY—September 4, 2012— Kent Farrington took top honors in the $250,000 FTI Grand Prix and FEI World Cup™ Qualifier, the grand finale of the 37th Annual Hampton Classic Horse Show. As always, the show featured international show jumpers, elegant show hunters, celebrities and more.

With more than 10,000 fans watching, Farrington, of Chicago, IL, and Voyeur were the first in the jump-off, and they left all eight jumps standing as they sped to a time of 47.53 seconds.  Shane Sweetnam of Ireland just brushed the front rail of the oxer in front of the packed grandstand on Amaretto D’Arco to finish second with 4 faults in 48.04 seconds. Molly Ashe-Cawley’s mount, Carissimo, slipped on the 180-degree turn to the same oxer before leaping awkwardly and crashing into the jump. They regrouped, though, to finish third with just those 4 faults in 55.19 seconds.

Westfield - Bob and Maren Retzlaff are not in any hurry.

Sure, they could travel to Lambeau Field for Sunday's season opener against the 49ers in just a few hours from their rural Tomah home, joining legions of other Packers fans returning to the not-quite-frozen tundra like green-and gold-clad swallows to Capistrano.

But for the Retzlaffs, it's not just the destination. It's the journey and the destination. Read Full Story

“War Horse,” the hit Broadway play about a British boy and his friendship with a horse which is tested by World War I, will close on Jan. 6, 2013, at the Vivian Beaumont Theater, the show’s producers announced on Tuesday. When it closes it will have played 718 performances and 33 previews.

After successful runs at London’s National Theater and in the West End, “War Horse” opened at the Beaumont, Lincoln Center Theater’s Broadway house, in April 2011. It won five Tony Awards, including best play, and was especially celebrated for the use of life-size puppets to depict horses.

Zen and the Art of Feeding Horses

Story Via: Eleanor Blazer

When I was a youngster I could sit and watch a nursing foal or a grazing horse for hours.

Now I look at a horse with an analytical eye.  Does her hair coat look slick? Is it duller than it was a month ago? Has she lost/gained weight? Is her muscle tone changing?

Know Your Horses State Of Mind!

Story & Photo Via: Tim Hayes

Have you ever tried to communicate with someone who is in a panic or so angry they’re “blind with rage”? You can’t. This person is overcome with out-of-control emotions. Their entire being is flooded with adrenaline. They want to either fight or run away. They’re only conscious of intolerable feelings of panic or rage, and are unable to think rationally. They behave impulsively and feel they must do something to get relief from the horrible way they feel. While in this state of mind if another person does or says anything to try and help, it usually will make the situation worse. What can one do? If it’s rage there’s not much except wait until they “cool off’ “take a walk around the block” or “count to 10”. If it’s panic – a fear-based state - sometimes we can help by doing something that “snaps” them out of their current state of mind.
