Please join our online community for an in-depth discussion of the Rhineland studbook!  The Rhineland studbook is the sister studbook to the Hanoverian studbook and managed by the American Hanoverian Society.  Dr. Ludwig Christmann of the Hannoveraner Verband will begin our discussion with a look at the history of the Rhineland horse. He will also speak about the most important stallions that had the greatest influence on the breed. And lastly, he will talk about some exciting Rhineland horses competing today. 

Our next speaker, Rick Toering of the AHS will highlight the advantages of the Rhineland studbook and its place in America.  He will also speak to the flexible registration options the studbook allows. And finally, we will hear from two breeders who use the Rhineland studbook for its workable registration options and its convenience.  Questions are always welcome!

Part 1 Feeding the Broodmare: Helping you make the best management and nutrition decisions

What your pregnant mare eats affects her milk production as well as her overall health and that of her unborn foal. Don't leave this important aspect of breeding to chance. Learn why the relative feed value (RFV) is important and how to use it, why hay analysis matters to your feeding program, how feed influences Developmental Orthopedic Disease (DOD) in prenatal mares, what to look for in a feed, the importance of amino acids, plus much, much more. Bring questions, Don has answers.

Part 2: Feeding the Suckling, Weanling, and Yearling and Managing the Orphaned/Rejected Foal

FREE TO AHS MEMBERS; $35 for nonmembers (become a member)

Learn how the newborn foal’s digestive enzymes slowly change from digesting only milk to digesting carbohydrates and then fermenting forages. The growth of various portions of the gastrointestinal tract parallels the changes in the foal’s enzyme activity: Find out what food complements those changes and reduces the chance of digestive upset (e.g., diarrhea). 

Don will outline the different growth rates and how they affect the necessary mineral density of weanling and yearling diets to support their development. He will review their ages and how to complement their "times" of growth-plate closures, which is recommended to reduce nutrition-related skeletal and soft tissue anomalies. In addition, Don will discuss why the quality and grade of forage young horses eat has a dramatic effect on their overall health and development. 

You will walk away with the tools to assure optimal forage is fed and to reduce the amount of a “grain mixture” needed to maintain your foal's body conditioning score (BCS) and allow you to concentrate on the minerals that complement your weanling or suckling growth rates.

Part 3: Performance Nutrition: Providing the Management Tools to Support the Performance Horse

FREE TO AHS MEMBERS; $35 for nonmembers (become a member)

In this session of the series, Don will outline how to meet the nutrient needs of Performance Horses, based on their size and level of performance. This will include selecting the optimal food to supply the appropriate “fuel” for their type of muscles (fast twitch or slow twitch). He will talk about decreasing the recovery time after exercise by knowing how much and when to provide a performance electrolyte, which will not only help your horse to “bounce back” but also help him to perform at the same high level on the second and the third days of competition.  

The handouts include a chart to help owners and trainers determine the calories in any particular feed, based the fat and fiber levels as well as which is “best” to feed based on the type of muscles the horse has.

Don will provide tools to help you determine your horse’s intensity of work-load and provide the Recommended Nutrition Allowances that could add to their longevity as a performance horse.  Don’s goal is to give you nutritional information that will allow your horses to perform up to their genetic potential and move forward into the future, so you can enjoy them longer.
