Noseband November

Noseband November – how tight is too tight?

By Lindsay Grice

Lindsay is an renowned Ontario riding coach, horse show judge. You may know her as a columnist or speaker, specializing in equine behavior and equitation science.

Standard equipment in English disciplines. Training equipment in western. While nosebands are designed to prevent bit evasion, in the horse business, we’re inclined to think, “If a little is good, more is better!
 
Equestrian Canada initiated “Noseband November” , following a noseband measuring project at horse shows last year. (See below for horse show rules and current research findings re nosebands).
 
The question upstream from noseband “restrictions” is -Are we masking bit evasion without asking WHY the horse might be resisting?
 
The International Society of Equitation Science responded to the dilemma of cranking nosebands in equine sport with studies and by designing a noseband gauge for horse show ring stewards:
 
“Some equestrian manuals and competition rule books propose that ‘two fingers’ be used as a spacer to guard against over-tightening, but fail to specify where they should be applied or, indeed, the size of the fingers.”
“When this device was used to check noseband tightness on 737 horses at a variety of national and international dressage and eventing competitions, 44% of nosebands were found to be too close to the horse’s face to accommodate the tip of the taper gauge under the noseband. By extrapolation, this revealed that we are routinely preventing swallowing, chewing, yawning and licking in the name of sport.” I.S.E.S.
 
The EC rule, amended last year reads:
Cruelty can be defined as causing pain or unnecessary discomfort to a horse. As examples, an act of cruelty can be but is not limited to any of the following:
a) nosebands used in such a way that they interfere with the horse’s breathing, or be tight enough to cause pain or discomfort
Although we cannot interview horses to ask them how it feels to have an over-tightened noseband, the research is convincing that it’s a significant welfare issue.
 
Here’s a summary:
Horses wearing tight nosebands, have demonstrated elevated physiological stress responses (Fenner et al., 2016; McGreevy, 2012), are prevented from performing normal oral behaviours such as chewing, licking, and tongue resalivation (Fenner et al., 2016; McGreevy, 2012), experience stress due to constant unrelenting pressure, may experience physiological damage to nasal bones (Crago et al., 2019), and commonly experience pressure that greatly exceeds that of a tourniquet, which in humans restricts arterial blood flow and causes significant pain and potential nerve damage (Casey et al., 2013).

Equine Disease Surveillance in Canada

Equine disease surveillance in Canada

In Canada, equine industry organizations such as the Canadian Quarter Horse Association work closely with other partners including the Canadian Animal Health Surveillance System, regional animal health networks (Western, Ontario, Quebec, Atlantic), governments, universities, veterinarians, laboratories and others to monitor diseases and share information.  

At the moment, these networks are paying attention to:

  • Equine infectious anemia (EIA), particularly in western Canada
  • Respiratory diseases (Influenza, Equine herpesvirus)
  • Antimicrobial use and resistance in horses
  • Vector borne diseases and climate change

Up to date information for horse owners includes:

  • The interactive Equine Diseases Dashboard
  • Infographics on EIA in Canada, including what you can do to protect your horses
  • Infographics on good practices for managing snotty noses and minor wounds

These are free and can all be found at: https://www.cahss.ca/cahss-networks/equine

Health and Regulations for the Transport of Animals in Canada Update

Transportation Code

An update to the 2001 transportation Code has been underway since December 2018. This multi-species Code of
Practice, covering animals from 14 national on-farm Codes, has been a massive undertaking. Additionally:

  • It has had to take into consideration robust federal regulations governing the transportation of animals in
    Canada (Health of Animals Regulations (HAR) Part XII: Transport of Animals), the long-awaited update of which
    was published in February 2019 along with an “evergreen” Interpretive Guidance for Regulated Parties.
  • The COVID 19 pandemic hit in 2020 halting all in-person meetings and requiring the nine Working Groups and
    the Code Development Committee to meet exclusively online. This was a huge learning curve for many and
    impeded the relationship-building opportunities and open dialogue that in-person meetings offer.
  • It is the first Code using NFACC’s Code development process that is not intended for on-farm use, and included
    the care of animals during transportation as well as when offloaded at specific types of intermediary sites.
  • It was initiated by NFACC versus a national stakeholder group representing transporters and other primary
    stakeholders, which has led to additional challenges in following the Code development process.

At the outset it was recognized that this complex Code required all the time afforded under the Canadian Agricultural
Partnership’s (CAP) AgriAssurance Program time allowance. Unfortunately, over the last several months it has become
apparent that a finalized transportation Code is not achievable by the CAP program end date of March 31, 2023. Initially,
attention was focused on finding alternative means for completing this Code. However, in recent months further
challenges surrounding the lack of national lead organizations have led to concerns with proceeding to update the
transportation Code. It has become prudent to take stock of the issues being raised and consider alternative approaches
for addressing humane transportation of livestock and poultry.

After deliberations with varied perspectives being brought forward, the NFACC board agreed, and secured support from
our project funders, to pursue a Risk Assessment (RA) coupled with a Collaboration Planning Exercise (CPE). It was
further agreed that RA & CPE are the soundest approach to:

  • Make best use of the time remaining under the current project to identify a path forward,
  • Ensure that we make best use of the time and funding already invested,
  • Ensure that we make best use of content developed to date through the project,
  • Unite the diverse interests around humane transportation into an achievable and cohesive plan,
  • Ensure that any decisions are consistent with NFACC’s mission and processes (and risk tolerances),
  • Ensure that we identify a viable path forward for the future.

Additionally, transporters and intermediary site operators are key stakeholders who need to be more formally
involved/engaged in a way that facilitates sector-wide inclusively. Hence, the remainder of the project will focus on
conducting a RA and CPE with the goal of determining viable options that can be operationalized with the broad support
of stakeholders.


Thank you to the many people who have participated in working groups and committees. There is a wealth of
information in the work already produced under this project activity and a strong desire has been expressed to make
best use of the content that has been developed to date. Both the RA and CPE are expected to provide possible
approaches for further consideration (e.g., incorporating transportation within commodity-specific Codes of Practice).

It should also be noted that while updating the transportation Code by March 2023 is not possible, much has already
been accomplished through this project. Aside from progress on various drafts of the transportation Code:

  • The transportation sections of 11 on-farm Codes were aligned with the new Health of Animals Regulations, an
    effort that required a significant investment of resources from 2019 until early 2022. The transportation Code
    team undertook this massive effort and worked with national livestock and poultry groups and CFIA.
  • A substantial update to the Environmental Scan of Regulatory and Operational Considerations report was
    undertaken in 2019, which included incorporating significant updates from both the Health of Animals
    Regulations and the Safe Food for Canadians Regulations.
  • A survey at the outset of the project captured top-of-mind concerns related to humane transportation with a
    report produced.

Previous progress reports are available here.

For information on the steps of the Code development process and progress of the Codes being updated follow this link.


Funded in part by the Government of Canada under the Canadian Agricultural Partnership’s AgriAssurance Program, a federal, provincial, territorial initiative.

From the Desk of the 2021 Congress Queen

This past week has been a whirlwind to say the least! I wake up everyday and still cannot believe that I have this incredible opportunity to represent the All American Quarter Horse Congress as their 2021 Congress Queen! 
 
Firstly, to the Ohio Quarter Horse Association, thank you for allowing me the opportunity to serve as the 2021 All American Quarter Horse Congress Queen. It is an opportunity that I do not take lightly. As I have said previously, past Queens had a major impact on me as a youth, inspiring me with their poise, graciousness, and knowledge of the breed. I hope to follow their amazing examples throughout my year!
 
To my fellow contestants, it was an honour to get to know you over the course of the Queen weekend. You are an incredible group of young women, and I can’t wait to follow along to see all your future achievements! I am so happy to have made 14 new friends along the way.
 
I have so many people to thank for their support on this incredible journey. To the Ontario Quarter Horse Assoc, thank you for allowing me to represent you as OQHA Queen these past two years. Despite the challenges we have all faced, it has truly been an amazing experience. To everyone who has passed along their support over the past week, know I have seen all your positive messages and that they mean the world! Please bear with me as I do my best to get back to you all, but I want everyone to know how touched I am by your kind words!
 
To my parents Jacqueline and Andrew Woods, thank you for your everlasting support of me in every area of my life, igniting my passion for Quarter Horses, and shaping me into the person I am today. I love you both so much.
 
To my trainers Rick Fleetwood and Robyn Storey (Rick Fleetwood Show Horses), thank you for your guidance, encouragement, and support. I have grown so much and gained a second family since working with you!
 
Janine Domingos and Jenna Woodley, thank you for your advice, guidance, and resources in helping me to prepare for this contest.
 
To Taylor Gumz thank you for your mentorship throughout this past year and for ensuring that I was outfitted for the Congress, I truly cannot thank you enough for all your guidance and support.
 
To my sponsors whose support allowed me to navigate all the hurdles I needed to pass in order to just make it to Columbus during these difficult times, I can’t thank you enough for your support and belief in me. Without you, this simply would not have been possible.
 
To everyone who took the time to interview me in preparation for Congress, your guidance and advice was so important in providing me the tools and confidence to be successful in that portion of the contest.
 
To the Queen Team: Jaymie Wells-Drury, Elaine Wells, Jessie Elsass , and Brittany Barker-Hostetler – thank you all for the countless hours of hard work needed to put on this contest and for helping me get acclimated this past week. I feel so blessed for all the support you have given me.
 
To Sarah Johnson, thank you for beautifully capturing the magic of this past week for all of us girls to look back on and cherish!
 
To the ladies in the awards office, thank you for welcoming me with open arms and teaching me the ropes. From making sure I am always fed to checking that my lipstick is always on point, you have been there every step of the way. This past week working with you all has been a blast!
 
And to my horse Betty, you did your job girl… thank you.
 
I am so excited for the year ahead. My experience so far at the Congress has been so rewarding. Seeing the culmination of years of hard work put in by exhibitors and their horses as they earn their Congress placings and speaking with the future of the industry, the youth, and learning about their goals. It has all been truly inspiring!
