Washington State Horse Park

Horse Park Washington State

OUR MISSION

To design, build, operate and maintain the premier equestrian facility in the Northwest serving the recreational, competitive and educational needs of riders and horse enthusiasts in all disciplines, age groups and skill levels. The venue will accommodate large horse events and cater to smaller, less formal activities. In addition to providing new opportunities for those involved in equine sports, the Horse Park also will stimulate Washington’s economy by creating jobs, increasing demand for goods and services and attracting new tourism.

OVERVIEW

The Washington State Horse Park lies off I-90 in Cle Elum with easy access from all over the state. The site has 112 acres of gently sloping terrain and is five minutes from Suncadia Resort which offers a variety of lodging, dining and recreational amenities in addition to those in Cle Elum, Roslyn and Ellensburg areas.

The Horse Park is developing into the premier equestrian facility in Washington state, serving the recreational, competitive and educational needs of riders and horse enthusiasts in all disciplines, age groups and skill levels. The venue will provide ample facilities to accommodate large horse events, and already is able to cater to small-to-medium size shows and less formal activities.

DEDICATED TO ALL DISCIPLINES AND LEVELS

The needs of horse people involved in a wide variety of equine disciplines across the state are served at the Horse Park. This world-class venue is fast becoming the “go to place” for breed shows, western competitions, hunter/jumper shows, dressage competitions, three-day events, combined driving and competitive trail riding, to name a few. Local, regional and national competitions will be attracted to the site for its comprehensive offerings and stunning setting.

The Horse Park also serves those interested in less formal equestrian activities such as trail riding and back country packing. Connections are being made to join the Coal Mine Trail east of the site and other nearby regional trails.

People of all ages and skill levels are drawn to the Horse Park, and special consideration is given to youth programs and therapeutic riding. Emphasis also is placed on fostering education and training through clinics, demonstrations, seminars and camps.

Horses and the Heat

Horses and the Heat

“With summer’s sunny days can come extreme heat. Such situations can cause worry for owners as they struggle to help their horses adjust, stay healthy, and remain comfortable. But with a well-thought-out management plan, horses can stay cool and comfy in the midst of summer.

To help get you started on the right track, TheHorse.com caught up with Nancy Loving, DVM, an equine practitioner in Boulder, Colorado, to find out what the most important things to consider are when caring for horses in extreme heat.

When dealing with hot temperatures, Loving said the most important thing an owner can do is provide his or her horse with plenty of fresh water.

“Clean water should always be available; an average horse needs five to seven gallons of water per day in cool weather, while in hot weather, requirements for maintenance and to compensate for losses in sweat may prompt intake of 20 gallons or more per day,” she explained. “Horses in a herd should have access to a couple of water tanks spaced a distance apart so dominant horses don’t prevent a thirsty, more timid horse from drinking.

Adding an electrolyte supplement to your horse’s diet could help keep him drinking and restore the electrolyte balances disrupted by sweating, and horses should have access to a salt block or receive a daily salt supplement (no more than a tablespoon per day) to allow them to meet their dietary sodium chloride requirements.

Additionally, she added that for a horse that doesn’t drink well, offering a watery gruel of a supplement (such as complete feed pellets) rather than feeding them dry can help increase the horse’s water intake.

Insects are another concern that accompany increasing temperatures, Loving said.

“Hot weather brings insects so don’t forget to use fly sheets, insect repellant, and during active insect times of day, it can help to bring your horse into the barn and use fans to create airflow that foils the ability of flying insects to hover around your horse,” she added, as many biting flies are poor fliers.”

Green Horse Organics is the result of over 25 years of my personal experience, research, trial and error and an endless Passion for horses. I have long wondered why we as smart savvy modern horse people have settled for chemical-laden toxic fly sprays for so many years. I am very concerned with these pesticides, and the many years spent inhaling the spray and absorbing these toxins through our skin when we come in contact with our horses. (And of course, we want to feel free to love on them endlessly.)

All we really want to do is provide our beloved equines with some relief from flies and biting insects, but is it worth the risk? I have always thought there must be a better way for you and your horse. Our horses count on us for care and we have been spraying them down with these pesticides thinking that we are helping not harming them. You will, of course, end up with some fly spray on yourself in the process, and I am no longer willing to be contaminated by the traditional toxic fly sprays. It is no longer the necessary evil because now you have safe options.

Well I know we can do better, so I have put all of my efforts into solving this problem naturally, with ingredients that mother nature has provided. I have finally created the most powerful combination of ingredients to protect your horse from flies, while still being gentle and safe for horses and humans. I am thrilled to offer you this fantastic natural product and am confident your horse is going to appreciate it as much as you. I know there are several other so-called natural options out there, but the ingredients are weak, not very effective or just plain do not work at all. I have tried them all over the years on my own horses, as I have pursued making the very best natural horse fly spray possible.

I know what horse owners are looking for because I am one, and have been for 35 years. First of all, it has to work, then it needs to be natural, gentle, long lasting and smelling good does not hurt either! Also, if your fly spray had other healthy benefits that would just be the icing on the cake! This is why my fly spray is heads and tails above the rest and I have chosen my outstanding ingredients to take care of all of these concerns. You get multiple benefits with added healing, calming, and conditioning botanicals, making it the most effective multi-purpose natural horse spray on the market. It works 4 ways and more, details on following pages on this remarkable multi-tasker.

Spring Horse Checklist

“With summer just around the corner, you and your horse are probably gearing up for a busy season. Here’s a list of some important health care reminders you should tackle before summer gets into full swing.

    1. Spring vaccines. These are the most essential spring items for many horse owners. But do you know what vaccines your horse needs? The American Association of Equine Practitioners has a complete list of core vaccines every adult horse in the US should receive on a yearly basis. These include rabies, EEE/WEE, West Nile Virus, and tetanus. If you plan to travel with your horse to shows or trail rides or other events where he might have contact with other horses, your horse should also receive “risk-based” vaccines for common contagious diseases such as equine herpes virus and influenza (often a combo vaccine called rhino/flu) and strangles. Other vaccines such as Potomac Horse Fever and botulism are geographically dependent but are still annual necessities if your horse resides in an endemic area.

Read the rest of the list about Coggins, Physical Exams, Hoof Care, Dental Care, Pasture Management, and Barn Management at Horse Channel.
