Horses can perform flawless flying lead changes and work whole herds of cattle. But routine activities such as clipping, mane pulling or shoeing some horses can be difficult to accomplish.
Zoetis helps make all of this safer for you and less stressful for your horse with DORMOSEDAN GEL® (detomidine hydrochloride) for mild equine sedation. Think of it as a humane “twitch in a tube.” Horse owners must obtain it with a veterinary prescription but can administer it themselves.
Raeford, N.C.- The 2014 USEF National Single Horse Driving Championship came to an exciting conclusion on Sunday in the cones phase of the Southern Pines CDE. On another beautiful day at the Carolina Horse Park, 2013 Champion, Leslie Berndl, held her nerve to drive a near flawless effort over Richard Nicoll’s cones course to retain the title.
Berndl (Newcastle, Calif.) and 13-year-old KWPN gelding Uminco, were the final competitors to tackle the cones course in the championship finishing within the time allowed and only dislodging two balls to add six points to their overall score. They finished on a total of 119.67 on weekend that surpassed expectation for the World Championship veteran.
