Horse Trivia II September 12, 2006 5:15 PM

Hey! Thought we'd start another round of "Horse Trivia". The ground rules are simple, if you have the correct answer, you get to ask the next question.

OK, let's start with this one: 

What is the term for the loss of ability to sweat in response to exercise or increased body temperature?

Boy, am I stumped.  I'll have to say I don't know.  [ send green star]

I have researched this one and come up with Anhidrosis. Not sure whether it's right though.  [ send green star]

Yup, that's correct! [The condition is a real bear to deal with, too.]

OK, Sharon, you get to post the next question!

The answer September 28, 2006 1:51 AM

Canada's Duane Latimer was the winner. He and America's Tim McQuay both scored a whopping 230, leaving them in an unusual tie-breaker after the individual final. They rode again and Duane pipped his rival securing gold for Canada.  [ send green star]
 
OK I had to give away the answer... September 29, 2006 1:38 AM

so here is another question but this time it stays till someone answers it:|

Keeping with reining. Name the patturns below that make up the manoueuvres. You gotta get all 3!

Patturn 1. The horse is brought to a halt out of a full canter.

Patturn 2. Sliding several metres on the hind legs.

Patturn 3. Fast 360 deg turns on the inside leg.

Those are integral parts of ALL the AQHA reining & working cowhorse patterns! You'll find that they all call for these maneuvers. 
 
There's no jogging or trotting, the patterns are done at a gallop. Don't forget, reining patterns aren't reining patterns without figure eights with flying lead changes, sliding stops & pivots!
.
That's what makes it so exciting!
