What do Russell Dilday, Jake Gorrell, Corey Cushing, and professional surfer, Izzy Paskowitz have in common? The Surfers Healing Foundation’s 10th Annual Surf & Turf charity event, July 7th and 8th. Now in its 10th year, the events combines a professional Cowhorse clinic being held in Rancho Carrillo, with a world class surfing clinic in San Diego over two days.

The event brings the horse and surf communities together with all proceeds benefitting the Surfers Healing Foundation. This non-profit foundation for autism was started by Izzy and Danielle Paskowitz whose son Isaiah has severe autism. After seeing the profound therapeutic effect the ocean had on their son as a toddler, the Paskowitz Surf Camp began in 1972. Today, Surfers Healing takes more than 6000 children and adults with autism surfing around the world every year.

Come join us for this action-packed weekend, one day of riding with some of the best cowhorse trainers in the world and one day of surfing with the amazing surf instructors of the Paskowitz Surf Camp. We are so lucky to have these great clinicians come together for this important cause. Do one or both days, audits are welcome.

Is Your Horse Unprotected? It’s important to be aware of core equine disease risks. If your horse does not receive annual vaccinations against the five core equine diseases, his life could be at stake. Help protect him through annual vaccinations against the five core diseases: rabies, Eastern and Western equine encephalomyelitis, tetanus and West Nile.

The fatality rates are grim: Rabies: 100%, Eastern equine encephalomyelitis: 90%, Western equine encephalomyelitis: 50%, Tetanus: 75%, West Nile: 33%. Please visit our website for sources. Core disease vaccination is the foundation for equine wellness.

Viral respiratory and neurologic diseases are the leading preventable causes of death in horses. No matter what your horse does – pleasure or performance – or where he lives, exposure to core disease vectors like mosquitoes, soil and wild animals cannot be prevented. Vaccination is the only way to help protect horses from these deadly diseases. The core vaccination guidelines were created by the American Association of Equine Practitioners, the leading group of equine veterinarians. Annual vaccinations are recommended as part of overall equine wellness.

In our video, you can hear more insights from Dr. Rush about core equine diseases and protection through annual vaccinations. Be sure to discuss your horse’s vaccination needs with your veterinarian, and visit CoreEquineDiseases.com for additional information and resources.
