The original chamois padding originated in 1900 as a manufacturer’s solution to genital soft tissue abrasions for male endurance cyclists. The first piece of advice many beginner cyclists get is to buy padded cycling shorts with chamois. It’s not a dumb tax provided by experienced runners. Health and riding comfort are closely linked to the development of bicycle pads.

The first suede seat was suede leather sewn into the lower crotch of the sheepskin shorts, adding softness and reducing friction in the rider’s private parts, but without any padding. With the progress and development of society, non-suede inner pads with built-in pads were introduced around 1980. Not only does this bicycle pad reduce friction, but it also adds cushioning. Almost all women’s cycling pants on the market follow this method of developing new cycling equipment based on male physiological structure.

Matt Powell, a sports retail analyst at NPD Group, once said in an interview with Bloomberg: brands have gradually paid enough attention to women.” Cycling brands are launching cycling apparel specifically designed for women and speaking out for women. But in a 2019 study of 178 female cyclists published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, 58% said they sometimes experienced genital numbness and 69% had chronic hip and groin pain. Since men and women differ greatly in their physiological structure, the lack of subversive innovation will not help women have a healthier experience.

Jelenew: born for women, launches revolutionary bike protection

Jelenew is an American women’s professional cycling brand and the world’s leading high fashion professional cycling brand. Its founding team is made up of a group of people who are passionate about cycling. Members are high fashion designers, seasoned bike enthusiasts, digital experts, and more. They came together for the love of cycling and hoped to use Jelenew to play to their professional advantages. When they noticed that traditional cycling pads are very unfriendly to women regarding physical health, function and aesthetics, and that there is a lot of room for optimization, they developed a pad five-point V-shaped riding boots.

Compared with the traditional bicycle cushion, Jelenew designed the seat cushion in a five-point V-shaped distribution design according to the physiological characteristics of female genitalia and strength while riding. Critical stress points, such as the uppers, are thickened to protect key stress areas when women ride. This new type of riding seat cushion can increase the cushioning effect, diffuse pressure distribution, effectively reduce pressure and discomfort while riding, reduce the risk of buttocks and leg numbness and improve blood circulation. It will bring a healthy and comfortable riding experience to female riders. In addition, Jelenew will also apply fashionable wearable technology to the design of cycling equipment, making it more beautiful while maintaining excellent functionality and visually bringing a better riding experience.

Haute couture 3D stitching has the dual feature of art and technology. Jelenew took the initiative to introduce this technique in the design and development of professional cycling clothing, adapting the padding to the shape of the pants and the human body. Issues such as bulge, non-conformity, awkward lines, and easy-to-see private parts camel toe on the front of the cycling pants fit the functionality and fashion aesthetic perfectly.

The founder of Jelenew said, “Our brand was founded with a sense of social responsibility. Our products include two categories, competition series and leisure cycling series. The competition series can meet the needs of professional athletes and senior cyclists in sports and leisure performance.Cycling series provides more practical, practical and realistic cycling equipment for most cycling enthusiasts.It can also consider aesthetics, practicability and life depending on the sports function. We hope our products and brands will have a positive impact and make more women fall in love with cycling.”

Five things we learned at the NHRA Thunder Valley Nationals https://ohalloranco.com/five-things-we-learned-at-the-nhra-thunder-valley-nationals/ Mon, 20 Jun 2022 14:49:03 +0000 https://ohalloranco.com/five-things-we-learned-at-the-nhra-thunder-valley-nationals/ Ron Caps It’s been around long enough that it doesn’t need a motivational lesson, but in this rare case, the staff at NHRA.com was happy to provide one.

Ron Caps It’s been around long enough that it doesn’t need a motivational lesson, but in this rare case, the staff at NHRA.com was happy to provide one. After Epping’s race, Capps was a bit irritated that the Funny Car points battle had become a two-horse race between Matt Hagan and Robert Hight.

Rather than complain about it on his social media or shed a tear over the beer and hot wings, he decided to do something about it. Intending to prove his point, the defending champion traveled to Bristol where his NAPA Toyota team held a hot-weather Funny Car racing clinic. Capps was the only driver to race in threes on Sunday and took the first victory for the new Toyota GR Supra body with his victory in the final over Tim Wilkerson. In the process, he significantly narrowed the gap between himself and the new rulers. Yes, it is now a three-horse race.

Erica Enders was about two gear changes away from his fifth victory in seven events this season, but his Melling/Elite Camaro’s engine had other ideas. The finale should have been over when Aaron Stanfield shook the tires, but after Enders’ car started belching volumes of white smoke, Stanfield was quick to get back on the gas and raced into one of the Craziest Pro Stock Finals we’ve seen in a while.

Maybe a mechanical breakdown is the only way Enders can lose a race right now. She’s 19-3 in the playoffs this season and has built an 83-point lead over second-placed Stanfield and a 209-point bulge over third-placed Kyle Koretsky. How many races will she win this year? It’s hard to say, but if you handicapped your odds, 10 would seem like a good number.

Despite winning Indy 2020, Shawn Langdon admittedly had a difficult few years at Kalitta Motorsports, but the tide seems to be turning in his favour. If nothing else, Langdon’s performance at Bristol reminded us just how good he can be and how he can adapt to almost any situation.

Langdon made one of his rare Super Comp appearances at Bristol and collected a last lap win over fellow world champion and incoming points leader John Labbous Jr. Nothing about 8.90 class racing comes easy, especially when Labbous is involved. Langdon then made it to the Top Fuel finale, where tire smoke prevented what could have been a storybook ending.


If you were to make a list of the things you would need to win the Camping World Top Fuel title, they would definitely include a driver who leaves the start line on time and keeps the car on the pace as well as tuners that can sway. adapt to races in hot and cool weather. At this point, it looks like the Davis Motorsports Top Fuel team has those items and put them to good use.

Justin Ashley won the season opener at Pomona in February and he scored again at Bristol, which are two completely different venues. Ashley’s Phillips Connect dragster can run 3.6 seconds when conditions allow and its reaction times have been largely consistent. The team doesn’t interrupt many races either, which explains why they are only 52 points from first place.

Admit it, unless you follow the Pro Stock Motorcycle class closely, you’ve probably never heard of it. Marc Ingwerson, but he’s worth a look as he almost made it to the final in Bristol, and that wasn’t by chance. Ingwersen was well ahead of Angelle Sampey in the semis when he suffered a mechanical problem and slowed down. He probably would have given Jerry Savoie a fair fight if he made it to the final

Ingwersen, based in Ohio, has competed in NHRA events on and off for the past few seasons but had never won a playoff round until this season. That changed in Gainesville where he upset three-time world champion Angelle Sampey in the first round. At this event, Ingwersen also rode his Buckeye HD with a personal elapsed time of 6.84. After back-to-back semi-finals in Richmond and Bristol, he moved up to 9th in the standings.

Haiku resident Leila Kalani Larson will honor several traditions, people and values ​​as she rides her horse today in the Pa’u Parade, a Hawaii-wide event celebrating 150 years of history , culture and heritage of King Kamehameha.

Adorned in purple colors and the Mokihana Island Flower, Larson will travel through historic Lahaina as Princess Kauai and as a symbol of the spirit of her late mother – Nancy Larson died of cancer in 2014 .

“Every year I ride in honor of my mother-in-law,” said Larson, who has represented the islands of Hawai’i, O’ahu and Maui in previous parades. “It’s that moment when you wrap yourself in the beautiful pa’u, ride your horse and walk down Front Street representing each island, seeing all the beautiful smiling faces of all the kupuna and keiki waving back – it’s priceless .”

Larson, 38, recalled how his mother used to take him and his brother to the parade when they were children in the city of Makawao.

“As the beautiful Pa’u riders rode their horses down the street, my mother always looked at me and said, ‘Look Leila, it will be you one day'” Larson said Tuesday.

Now mother to 14-year-old Zion, who helped with the preparations, Larson said the tradition of being a pa’u princess “means so much to me.”

“It is a great honor and pride for me to represent all the islands as a Pa’u princess”, she says.

While picking flowers and making last-minute preparations on Wednesday, Pa’u Commissioner Moani Whittle Wagner said it was also a special year as the Pa’u Parade returns to West Maui after a two-day hiatus. years amid the COVID-19 pandemic – it took place virtually last year at the Oskie Rice Arena.

“We are delighted to be back on Front Street”, said Wagner, adding that she is honored to help celebrate Hawaiian culture in perpetuity. “There’s going to be so much aloha.”

The theme this year is “E Ola Ka Mo’i Kamehameha,” or long live King Kamehameha.

“As a horse owner myself, I appreciate all the hard work and dedication it takes to be a Pa’u rider,” she says. “From traveling around the island to picking flowers, making all the horse and body collars, grooming our horses and training them for the parade.”

Dressed in white shells and pupu, Kula resident Tia Perdido Ampong, 37, will ride as the Princess of Ni’ihau.

“The memories created with my pa’u ohana and the knowledge and experience we gain from the whole pa’u process, which includes preparing for the parade of our horses, picking and collecting flowers and supplies for six horse collars and body collars, and making them with our family and friends – a truly invaluable experience,” Ampong said on Tuesday. “The purpose of this event is to honor the memory of the Kamehameha lineage and to represent your island with pride and Aloha.”

The Ni’ihau unit decided to opt for more earthy and natural colors, such as the ‘a’ali’i of Upcountry, the ti leaves of Ampong’s aunt’s house in Haiku, the woodland roses of the Hui No’eau and the palapalai of the Laoa farms, Ampong said.

“I am also honored to wear a Ni’ihau shell necklace that was given to my father-in-law by his Ni’ihau friends,” said the University of Hawaii Maui College graduate. “It is truly an honor to be able to represent the island of Ni’ihau. It is known as the “Forbidden Island” and is an invite-only destination where they maintain their commitment to preserving its proud Hawaiian heritage.

“I have always been very interested in visiting the island to experience the uniqueness of the island and its people.”

For Rachel Emma Kahealani ‘Uweko’olani-DeCoite, 43, who has traveled all eight island units, learning more about each island over the years “has been very special to me and my ohana.”

This year she will be Princess Kaho’olawe, an island where she had the pleasure of spending time in the 90s doing hula.

“One year we traveled to Ni’ihau to get a feel for the island and all its beauty.” she said Wednesday. “But doing Kaho’olawe with my sister Kalei ‘Uweko’olani means more to us than any other year because we dedicate our ride to our mother, Mrs. Susie ‘Uweko’olani, who passed away three years ago.

“She was a real inspiration to all of us,” she added. “But we know she will be with us on Front Street.”

Although originally from Kahului, ‘Uweko’olani-DeCoite currently resides in Utah, so being back in Maui for the weekend is what she’s most looking forward to, including “seeing everyone’s faces in Front Street” and “showing the love we all share for pa’u.”

To help further bring out the gray-themed color of Kaho’olawe and the flower of hinahina island, viewers will see ‘Uweko’olani-DeCoite wearing royal blue, as well as decorating clothing with a’ ali’i, spanish moss, hydrangea flowers, buttonhole, kakalaioa, laua’e and cymbidium orchid.

The 2022 Pa’u Court also includes Princess Desiree Ku’ulei Akimseu of the Island of Hawaii, Princess Moloka’i Melanie Malia Pali-Kaneakua, Princess Maui Sofia Kaleimamo Salvatierra, Princess O’ahu Daphne Emmalani Lukela and Princess Lana’i Robin Lynn Baylosis.

Makawao residents Glenn Berce and his wife Linda Uradomo-Berce have been chosen to be the 2022 Grand Marshal and Queen Pa’u respectively.

Although there are certain criteria for becoming Grand Marshal and Queen, candidates are also those who have “contributed to the success of the Pa’u Day Parade and Kamehameha, rodeo and cattle drive on Maui”, said Wagner.

An accomplished horseman and cowboy, Berce is a life member of the Maui Roping Club and has won multiple Hawaii State Championships in reining, cutting and workhorse classes.

He also served as president of the Maui Fair’s Livestock and Poultry Show for over 35 years. He volunteers as a live auctioneer of livestock, fine dining restaurants, hotels and trips for local charity fundraisers.

Growing up in Upcountry Maui, Uradomo-Berce has a passion for horses and Western riding, and has participated in numerous Maui Horse Show Association shows, volunteered for the Maui Fair Livestock and Poultry and has represented the islands of Kaho’olawe, Lana’i and Ni’ihau in Pa’u units over the years.

The couple’s daughter, Gabrielle Celestine Berce, will participate in the parade as the reigning Miss Rodeo Hawaii.

The parade will begin at 9:45 a.m. along Front Street from Kenui Street to Shaw Street. Front Street will be closed to vehicular traffic.

During this time, the ho’olaule’a will take place under the Lahaina Banyan Tree and will feature free exhibits, keiki activities, a pa’u parade and awards, food stalls supporting non-profit organizations communities, made-in-Maui artisans, music and hula.

The festivities are to last until 5:30 p.m.

Wagner said that all collected lei, pa’u and other foliage are used to decorate the ho’olaule’a stage, while the remaining pieces are offered to kupuna, families or dismantled and returned to the ‘aina.

“We want to welcome everyone safely to Lahaina for this event,” said event coordinator Daryl Fujiwara in a press release. “Sacred Hearts turns 160 and one of our partners, Lahaina Restoration Foundation, turns 50 and the party itself in honor of King Kamehameha turns 150 – lots to celebrate.”

For someone who has earned a reputation as a dominating trainer of middle-distance colts, it’s a surprise that Aidan O’Brien has only saddled one winner of the King Edward VII Stakes (G2) since 2004.

A logical reason for this is King Edward VII’s June 17 proximity to the Cazoo Derby (G1). O’Brien is regularly mob-handed in the Classic and this race is obviously less of a priority for the operation.

Changing of the guard ran for credit at Epsom when he attempted to make all 13 days, fading in the final two stages in the cheeks for the first time.

It may be worth forgiving as Trainer Ballydoyle’s record with horses in this gear for the first time is a measly 6-66 (9%) and well below his overall strike rate of 19%.

Cheeks are left out and it’s a class drop for the changing of the guard, whose luck hinges on their ability to handle the quick turnaround and whether Ryan Moore is allowed to control things beforehand .

Register for

The changing of the guard was Ballydoyle Brigade’s best in the Derby and Wayne Lordan, on board that day, described him as “a relentless galloper who doesn’t really pick up the pace but stays at a canter and is very , very authentic.

The question for punters is whether you can trust him at such a short price given that the Derby took place just 13 days ago.

The only Epsom Classic horse that has raced since is Nahanni (seventh) and he caused bitter disappointment in the Queen’s Vase (G2) on Wednesday, finishing just sixth and beaten by eight lengths.

Given his official rating of 110 and the fact that he is rated eight pounds ahead of anything bar Ottoman fleet who has yet to receive a rating, the changing of the guard should take some time if he is fully recovered from his efforts at Epsom.

O’Brien, who saddled Japan to win this race in 2019 after finishing third to Anthony Van Dyck in the Derby, agreed there wasn’t much time between Epsom and Royal Ascot but hoped his son of Galileo could cope with the speed of execution.

O’Brien said: “It looked like a great run for him. The Derby isn’t that far away and although he seems to have come out of it in good shape, you never really know how it affected them until you ran them. We haven’t done much with him since Epsom, just run him around.”

Lysander is the other colt with recent form in mind and could try to lead. He looked straight out of the top drawer as he strolled through a Newcastle rookie, although there seemed to be no excuses on his next outing when he finished third in the British Stallion Studs EBF Cocked Hat Stakes. It was yet another improved effort and it deserves its place in this company.

Charlie Appleby issues a stern challenge to O’Brien’s supremacy with 3-year-old colts and Godolphin’s trainer relies on the Ottoman fleet. The way he landed a listed run at Newmarket after stumbling off the stalls meant we were dealing with top talent after just two runs, although the value has dried up now.

Watch this race listed and you’ll struggle to understand how the Ottoman fleet can be a 2-1 shot with a third home Wise Victory bearable at 20-1.

Savvy Victory traveled better at Newmarket and was forced to change direction to get a run, ending up with something in the tank.

While the Ottoman fleet is highly respected and could improve beyond the more exposed Savvy Victory, the price differential is false.

A retired aerospace engineer who had gone into farming was fatally crushed after operating a ‘dangerous homemade lever’ that had historically been installed by a previous owner. A jury inquest in Exeter County Hall today, June 13, heard how Philip Taylor, 67, became a part-time farmer after he and his wife moved to farmland in Ashwater, Beaworthy, in 1994.

In May 2021, he bought a used tractor that was between 27 and 34 years old to help with farming tasks and also a mattress topper. The father-of-two had finished sharpening the cutting blades of his tractor in a barn on their farm when he was found deceased by his wife Elizabeth on June 25, 2021.

The inquest heard that the engine tractor was still running and that several emergency services were present, including the fire department. The cause of his death was crushed asphyxiation.

In a statement, Ms Taylor told how they met when she was 17 and he was 23, and they got married and had two children together. He worked for British Airways and in 1992 they moved to Devon.

Two years later he started farming part time and they kept cows, sheep and horses and also converted two barns into holiday rentals. She recalled that a month before his death he had bought a used John Deere tractor, but when it was delivered it was “not in amazing condition” and not worth the money it was. they had paid.

She said, “I personally thought it was a pile of garbage.”

Describing the shock of Mr Taylor’s sudden death, she said: “I lost the love of my life. It’s unfair that he was taken from me.”

Forensic examiner Geoffrey Chapman told the inquest how the tractor’s mattress topper was rear-mounted and had two rotating cutting blades which had recently been sharpened.

He explained that a hydraulic lever that operated the defoliator was installed inside the tractor cab and could not be operated from the outside. Because a log had been placed under the defoliator as an added safety measure when sharpening the blades, the time it took for the defoliator to fully raise from bottom to top was 1.9 seconds.

However, the vehicle was fitted with an additional hydraulic short lever, which meant that the mattress topper could be operated from the rear of the vehicle.

Mr Chapman said: ‘It’s not the recommended way to do it and it shouldn’t have been installed.’ He added: “I’ve never seen a lever installed there before.”

He continued: “This modification was installed by someone at some point in the past life of the tractor.”

Further details on how it was installed were provided by health and safety inspector Simon Jones. He told the inquest that the extra lever was ‘unsafe’ and put the operator in a ‘dangerous position’ and would have required approval from the tractor manufacturer.

He said: “I think it was a home-made adaptation by someone in the past; I don’t think it was bought off the shelf and installed incorrectly.”

He said it was likely Mr Taylor had lowered the mattress topper blades after sharpening them when the ‘unintentional’ incident happened.

He said: “It’s speculation, but more likely than not he meant to lower the tool and moved the lever in the wrong direction.

He added that he had spoken to the farmer who had owned the tractor for 10 years, who said he did not match or had any knowledge of the extra lever.

Mr Jones said: “It looks like there are paint splatters on it which might indicate it’s been there for some time. I’m unable to say how long that lever has been there on the basis of the declaration of the previous farmer.”

The inspector also acknowledged that Mr Taylor was an experienced engineer and farmer, and there were clear signs that he was ‘safety conscious’.

A family spokesperson said: ‘The family strongly believes the tractor was substandard and unsafe when it was sold.’

The jury concluded accidental death.

Editor’s note: This was originally published for FANGORIA on June 12, 2007 and we are proud to share it as part of The Gingold files.


The DVD landscape has become so saturated with teen-in-a-cab slasher flicks and true serial killer chillers that any movie promising to pull a few twists on the stalker formula can only be approached with some optimism. This hope is somehow fulfilled by Delivery (Polychrome; photo above) and squarely dotted with kill the house (Trinity); while neither film brings back the full potential of its premise, the first, at least, can be enjoyed for its good intentions. The latter, on the other hand, is an example of genre cinema at its deepest and most insulting cynicism.

Florida lentil Delivery, written and directed by Jose Zambrano Cassella, is perhaps the first film ever made about a murderous pizza maker, specifically Montgomery Goth (Matt Nelson), a bear of a man who nevertheless allows himself to be the doormat of his world. . He suffers abuse from his boss, his clients, and especially the grotesque woman in the lot where his car is towed after running out of gas late at night. The only respite from his life of misery is Bibi (Tara Cardinal), a charming young artist whom he meets on his way and with whom he begins a love affair. But – oops – turns out his brother is not only a big jerk, but also Monty’s pie-delivery contest at his job, and he sabotages the budding relationship. Top that off with a healthy dose of nightmares about his traumatic past, and it’s clear Monty is destined to crack, and in the most violent way possible.

It’s so clear, in fact, that after a while you’ll wish the movie would go on. Nelson, who had never acted before this project, invests Monty with some sympathy, but the characterization and the film itself continue to strike the same note for almost an hour before he is finally allowed to go. detach and take revenge. Once that happens, Nelson doesn’t gratifyingly exaggerate Monty’s psychosis, and there’s a macabre spirit to some of the death settings (especially his Rube Goldberg solution to the problem of how to eliminate a house full of arrogant sorority sisters) which adds a necessary modicum of surprise, given that her rampage is such a predictable conclusion. Still, Cassella has scraped together his budget of just $5,000 in a film that doesn’t feel like a cheap knockoff, as he’s clearly committed to the material and resists the urge to camp it all out for cheap laughs. Delivery only delivers sporadically, but it should be interesting to see where Cassella goes from here.

Upon proof of kill the house, however, writer/director Beth Dewey might be advised to seek another line of work, pronto. This budding horror/satire is as shrill and obnoxious as the movies get, and for quite a while it seems to forget it’s meant to be a slasher picture. The gimmick here is that chaos unfolds in the real estate world, opening with the gory murders of a real estate agent and a woman squatting (and bathing) in an apartment she’s showing off. The story centers on a particular San Francisco home where teenagers (read: played by actors in their twenties) are left behind while their parents are on vacation, even as the place is shown to potential buyers. One or two more murders occur, and the film plays with a few potential red herrings: her daughter Lucy (Toni Breen) won’t budge because she’d have to part with her beloved horse Anthrax (?!), and The Warden (E. Shepherd Stevenson, resembling Greg Nicotero gone to seed) is an ex-con.

About half an hour later, however, the culprit is revealed to be… Dewey herself, playing the conniving middle-aged real estate agent Sunny. She and her Conner Realty colleagues would kill to make a sale, and too much of the subsequent running time is taken up with their devious shenanigans until Dewey finally remembers she’s making a scary movie, after which Sunny begins to kill at random. anyone within striking distance. Most of it isn’t funny at all and bit scary, and part of it is worse, reaching its nadir in a sticky, pointless scene in which Sunny kidnaps three young girls off the street and forces them to pose as her daughters. The actors all seem to have been directed to be as hateful as possible, the tone is all over the place and, despite the assorted splashes of gore and the nudity of women of all shapes, sizes and ages (including Dewey herself), even the chills good. market are few. and very far between.

Both films were shot on consumer video equipment (although kill the house seems to have had a slightly higher budget than Delivery) and as such look quite polished in widescreen transfers to their respective DVDs, with decent 2.0 sound on each. Delivery includes a commentary from Cassella and Nelson, which reveals that the film has its origins when the couple were both working behind the scenes of Andrew the Butcher, and the former realized how perfect the latter would be as an on-screen villain. Denying the stern demeanor he wears throughout his performance, Nelson proves he has a sense of humor at the ready as he and Cassella recount the cash-strapped production, praise their collaborators and salute other Florida filmmakers and their productions. At one point, Nelson admits he only read the script once before he started filming, and he recalls a squib-gag-gone-wrong that almost set him on fire, a moment captured among a collection of modestly amusing bloopers. There is also a “behind the scenes” supplement consisting entirely of still photographs.

kill the house (Trinity) has rather less to offer – just a collection of 10 deleted scenes of very little consequence, and a rote behind-the-scenes featurette. Here we find out that, instead of having to shoot all the real places like Cassella and co. did, Dewey and his team had the relative luxury of working on sets, albeit quite inexpensively. And the fact that these low-cost constructions pass convincingly for real home and office interiors is probably kill the housethe most important achievement of.

Back on his favorite grass course, the Lazy F Ranch’s Gam’s mission worn out a stubborn Dalika to post a 1 1/4 length win in the June 5 $200,000 Old Forester Mint Julep Stakes (G3T) at Churchill Falls.

Winner of the Regret Stakes (G3T) on Churchill’s lawn last year, Gam’s Mission was the second choice 3-1 behind the favorite Petricor of the Bill Mott barn. Making his third start of 2022 after back-to-back second-place finishes, including a header loss at an allowance on April 23, Gam’s Mission bided his time well overdue in the Mint Julep. Bel Mar Equine’s Dalika, returning from an eight-month layoff, quickly cleared the field as she led the way through an opening quarter of :24.22 and a half mile of :48 .68.

It was after the half-mile mark that Adam Beschizza pushed Gam’s Mission into high gear, and she rode over the leaders with every stride, swinging four wide into the lane for the stretch run. . Dalika ran bravely but was caught in the final sixteen by Gam’s Mission, who surged to hit the wire in 1:43.53 for the 1 1/16 miles on a firm course.

“It’s a workhorse,” Beschizza said of Gam’s Mission, which paid $8.20. “This filly is all heart. She probably prefers a small cut in the ground, and that was pretty quick today. She managed to overcome this and win very well. We thought she would be sitting on a big race today and doing well with just a few easy canters in today’s race.

Longshot Take Charge Ro was 1 1/4 lengths further in third, a neck ahead of Petricor.

“Adam did a great job of calming himself down,” coach Cherie DeVaux said. “She was a little further than normal, but that’s how the race went today with (Dalika) up front. I’m really pleased with her effort to finish so strong.

With her second score, the 4-year-old filly increased her earnings to $448,708 and improved her career record to 4-3-0 in 10 starts.

Bred in Kentucky by her owners, Gam’s Mission is out of War Pass winning mare Aunt Martha, the dam of three winners of three foals to run. Aunt Martha, a daughter of Grade 1 winning mare Auntie Mame, has a 2-year-old filly never raced by Burglar cat and a one-year-old foal by dad’s hats.

Buckhead’s Chastain Horse Park begins $8.9 million upgrade to serve its therapeutic mission https://ohalloranco.com/buckheads-chastain-horse-park-begins-8-9-million-upgrade-to-serve-its-therapeutic-mission/ Fri, 03 Jun 2022 07:06:27 +0000 https://ohalloranco.com/buckheads-chastain-horse-park-begins-8-9-million-upgrade-to-serve-its-therapeutic-mission/ Most Buckhead residents know there are horses in the stables at Chastain Park.

Most Buckhead residents know there are horses in the stables at Chastain Park. But even many locals don’t know about Chastain Horse Park’s true humanitarian mission.

Established over 75 years ago as stables and riding grounds for wealthy horse owners, the CHP is now a licensed ‘equine therapy’ center where people receive help with physical problems, cognitive and emotional by bonding with animals and other riders. And this week, it began work on a two-year, $8.9 million campus renovation to upgrade and expand those programs.

“The magic that happens here with our horses is amazing,” says CHP Executive Director Trish Gross, who ran Buckhead.com during a facility tour shortly before construction began.

CHP occupies approximately 15 acres of city parkland at Chastain Park Avenue and Powers Ferry Road. It’s a private, not-for-profit organization that holds a long-term lease from the city that includes the right – and responsibility – to build and pay for just about everything on it, subject to continue to offer therapy programs.

When the green space opened in 1945 as North Fulton Park, Buckhead was a rural area that was not yet part of the city of Atlanta, and many people owned horses. The park included equestrian facilities, including an indoor arena whose stone walls—likely built by workers under President Franklin Roosevelt’s Works Progress Administration programs—still stand today.

CHP still offers horse boarding, which is an important source of income, but this is not its main function. Ditto for a large clubhouse known to the general public as a venue for events. And although it is in a public park, the private CHP is not a kind of equestrian zoo where everyone is free to roam. In fact, CHP has become what Gross calls “unfortunately, a best-kept secret” in the neighborhood.

Its real mission is therapeutic programming, which serves hundreds of people each year thanks to a team of 15 people and many other volunteers. These programs started so small in the 1970s or 1980s, Gross says, that no one is really sure of their history. The formation of CHP as an official non-profit organization in 1999 marked the beginning of a serious and nationally accredited program. In 2005, a team of physical and occupational therapists called My Heroes began working there, and in 2011 launched a second equine therapy program at Colorado State University.

The programs help people facing a wide variety of issues, such as cerebral palsy and autism. And a new psychotherapy pilot program will begin this fall. The CHP has specialized facilities and equipment for therapy, such as a lift to assist people in wheelchairs to mount, and a “Sensory Path” with various sensory engagement devices on poles or trees at horse height. There’s also “Elvis,” a mechanical horse used to give therapy clients a taste of riding before trying the real thing.

“One of the tools I use is the movement of the horse,” said CHP physiotherapist Michelle Winer, explaining that the movements can be soothing while increasing the rider’s muscle strength.

Most customers are young people, but about a quarter are adults. And they come from all over – with regulars coming from as far away as Macon – and all income groups. The CHP subsidizes half of the programs and offers full and partial scholarships to those in need.

“It’s not 30327 serving 30327,” Gross said, referring to the posh local zip code. “We are 30,327, making a difference for all of Atlanta.”

The CHP also offers field trips for schoolchildren and at-risk youth, as well as a summer camp program that remains suspended in the event of the pandemic but could return in 2023.

The CHP owns the horses used in the therapy programs, which are selected for their temperament. Many horses are pets donated by individuals – including Gross herself, whose horse Dawson became a member of the team in 2017. Combined with the privately boarded horses – many show horses – the total horse population on any given day is approximately 50 to 60 .

While these programs have exploded, the installations have not. Most of the barns and paddocks date from the 1990s when the association was established and are now inadequate and facing maintenance issues. Many even lack heating and air conditioning. And the staff and volunteers not only work in the barns, but literally in the stalls for the horses.

“Our volunteer lounge is a booth,” Gross said. “The same booth is our kitchenette. The same stand is our volunteer coordination office.

During the recent visit, a volunteer training was taking place in the driveway of a barn, with a screen erected against the barred doors. Given the high-level accreditation and number of programs, Gross said, the facilities are “below what we do.”

Hence the “Healing Through Horses” fundraising campaign which, despite the pandemic, raised most of the funds needed to start building new facilities. Demolition of a barn was due to begin this week, with similar demolitions and rebuilding over the next two years as programs and horses shuttle back and forth. The main facility, Therapeutic Horsemanship Center, will include stalls for 40 offices and numerous human facilities.

New paddocks are also coming, while some facilities, such as the main arena and clubhouse, will remain intact. There will also be accommodation for the on-site manager, Lori Barefoot, who currently lives in a flat above one of the barns.

Some trees are falling, Gross said, and will be replaced with new plants according to city code. Part of the tree removal is required for an improved stormwater retention pond.

The end result will be modernized and somewhat larger facilities to handle an expansion of programs, although Gross says horsepower numbers should stay about the same. The plan includes a barn with boxes for 40 horses. Comparing the project to a hotel, Gross said CHP was not going the cheap route, but also not building anything too fancy.

“We go to the mid-level Marriott, not the St. Regis or Motel 6,” she said.

This is still a colossal undertaking for a relatively small non-profit organization. CHP still needs to raise about $900,000 to complete the work. That’s on top of the approximately $775,000 a year it must raise to maintain its $2 million operating budget. The next major annual fundraiser will take place in October.

A former founder of a West Coast high-energy tech company, Gross is used to raising money in the hard word of venture capital.

“It’s a whole different kind of investment,” Gross said of the CHP fundraiser. “When I fundraise, I ask for an investment…in our community, in our integrity, in ourselves, in our humanity.”

Gross moved to the Chastain Park neighborhood in 2015 when her husband, a Cox executive, moved to Atlanta. A horse lover herself, she fell into CHP and eventually into her leadership role. She is committed to increasing public understanding of her mission and the camaraderie that develops between clients, volunteers and horses.

“We are a community. It’s a horse-centric community,” Gross said. And for those who are there, regardless of the stresses and changes in other parts of their lives, “everyone comes to the barn.”
