BETA Threat to Horse Welfare - Equine Voice Needs to be Heard
THE support of the equestrian community is urgently being called upon to help fight far-reaching proposals to radically change the way veterinary medicines are sold.
As the campaign to fight European Commission legislation is stepped up
additional support is being sought from the equestrian world in making its concerns known about the changes.
This is the plea put out from the Animal Health Alliance (AHA) formed last year to specially challenge the proposals.
The changes, if approved would mean all medicines for equines would be obtainable only under prescription.
This would include not only essential medicines such as horse wormers, (classified as PML) but also certain over the counter products (so called GSL's) such as some sweet itch treatments and insecticidal shampoos.

ILPH Busy Vet Needs Urgent Sponsorship for Charity Run
Busy equine vet Andrew Harrison (37) of Kearns & Rea in Tewkesbury is desperately seeking sponsorship for his London Marathon run.
Comments Andrew, who is vet at the ILPH (International League for the Protection of Horses) Herefordshire Centre, Glenda Spooner Farm, "I have always promised myself that I would run in the London Marathon one day and it was early one morning while attending a sick ILPH mare that I rashly said that I would run for them.
"I say 'rashly' because I didn't stop to think what was involved in getting sponsorship! With my vet's duties, serious training for the run and being a father of two I have precious little time left to look for sponsorship.
"Having seen first hand the excellent work done by the ILPH during the last 9 years I feel that it is a very worthy cause and well worth all the time I am putting into my training."

Tampa, FL—March 15, 2002—The Show Jumping Hall of Fame has extended the deadline for horse shows wishing to host events on the 2002 Show Jumping Hall of Fame Jumper Classic Series to May 31.

Because of the significance of this, some horse shows expressed interest in joining the Series after the original deadline had passed. In the best interest of the sport, the Show Jumping Hall of Fame Board of Directors felt it best to give horse shows more time to finalize their decisions.

Charles Owen Brainwaves With Charles Owen
Sponsorship of a Show is not normally a life and death issue. However Charles Owen was recently approached by Deborah Ward who is a Board Member of the Brain Trauma Foundation in New York. It is the goal of the Brain Trauma Foundation to improve the outcome of all patients suffering from brain injury with implementation of the scientific evidence based protocol that has been developed.
Therefore to attract the support of leading International Headwear Manufacturer Charles Owen as a Main Corporate Sponsor was a logical progression and association. In 2002 the 'AA-Rated' Fairfield County Show elected to support the Brain Trauma Foundation charity which was founded in 1986. To approach a headwear manufacturer whose aim it is to protect riders and help to prevent brain injury was the obvious step. Charles Owen has agreed, as post trauma care is also a large concern of theirs and the next step in their commitment to riders worldwide.
The aim of the BTF is to educate the hospitals to use a simple $100.00 procedure which can literally make the difference between life and death. Monitoring the brain pressure is a simple first step in treating head injury and a key part of treatment guidelines supported by the American Association of Neurological Surgeons, the World Health Organisations Head-Injury Committee and the American College of Surgeons.

Craig Jones, President of Rescue Critters! stated; "Our animal mannikins provide realistic training to learn life saving techniques, practice them safely and be prepared for emergency care until they can transport their pet to a veterinarian."

Our mission is to provide a political voice for horse people who do not put the Œcart before the horse¹ so to speak.

Indio Mary Tyng Thrills Crowd In $150,000 Ford Grand Prix Of The Desert During Indio Finale
If you were going to write a suspense thriller using Grand Prix show jumping as the backdrop, today's $150,000 Ford Grand Prix of the Desert provided the ideal script. Forty-one horses and riders attempted Dave Ballard's challenging course. "This is the last West Coast Qualifier for the World Cup indoors in Germany. I built a course typical of an indoor course, consistent with an indoor arena," explained Ballard of Ontario, Canada. "I had three, four and five stride lines that created the technical challenges found with shorter lines. They required the horse to be 'scopey' and the jumps were big enough that the riders in general exhibited a tendency to not be able to ride the time allowed."

Communicating By The Seat Of Your Pants
WAVERLY, WV--Sometimes a super horse appears at the events where our instructors are showing that really catches my eye. He is already such a nice mover or I can see that he has the potential for three good gaits as he progresses. The following year, however, I might not even recognize the same horse much less tag him as a rising star.
His flowing gaits have become short and choppy. His soft jaw and relaxed back are now clamped and tight.Instead of moving forward in his training, he has deteriorated. When a setback like this happens, the reason is often that his rider does not have an independent seat.
Developing a truly independent seat is the ultimate goal for a rider. It is not about looking pretty on the horse. It is about being in the right position with the right control over your own body in order to be able to communicate clearly and logically with the horse. If your horse feels the bit move in his mouth, it should be because you are deliberately asking him for a specific shape or a cadence or a degree of collection, not because you have momentarily lost your balance or have become tense somewhere in your body.
Obviously, if you are bouncing around on the horse's back or grabbing at his mouth in order to keep your balance, that "noise" is what he is going to listen to. If the way you are sitting or moving on his back creates pain or discomfort for the horse, then any communication is gone. Without an independent seat, it is impossible to properly influence the horse's mind and body in order to train it for any higher level equestrian sport from dressage to eventing or cutting or reining.
The rider must master six distinct skills as she or he develops an independent seat.
