The Art of Treating Equine Joint Disease: new surgical technique saves horses
With the emphasis on healthier and more active lifestyles, competitive sports are attracting people well into their later years. Horse owners are expecting the same of their mounts. Many hard working hunt, dressage, and three-day event horses can be highly competitive in their late teens and early twenties. Injuries, however, are a fact of life for both people and horses. This is particularly true for those involved in competitive sports. Often these injuries occur early in life and are career-limiting. Now, with specialized mosaic arthroplasty techniques, the rehabilitation of many competitive horses with previously untreatable joint injuries is possible.
Joint injuries are a major cause of economic loss in the horse industry. Even a small cartilage injury in a critical spot can end a successful career. While the knee is the most problematic site for the human runner, injuries in the equine carpal (knee) and fetlock joints in the front limb are limiting for the horse. Cartilage in these high motion joints does not heal in adult horses. Medications in the glucosamine sulfate, non-steriodal anti-inflammatory and hyaluronate families are ineffective treatments for the kind of cartilage and bone injury that we often see in competitive horses.

The American Paint Horse won the Championship by a wide margin, with a two-round composite score of 448.5-nine points ahead of the second-place competitor. A team of five judges awarded the points.
Gunner's totals were considered exceptionally high. In fact, the 8-year-old sorrel overo stallion went into the competition with the highest USET reining score in history -a 233 in the semi-finals at Oklahoma City, Okla. Ridden by Bryant Pace and owned by Kim and Debra Sloan, all of Newfoundland, N. J., Gunner has proven to be a master at the sport, earning more than $160,000 over his career.
"He's all start and he's all stop," said Kim Sloan, emphasizing that Gunner is cool under pressure and never wastes energy.

A Horse, of Course with Don Blazer
Brown Jack was laid back!
That’s why he’s one of history’s horses.
Sure, Brown Jack could run. He began his racing career jumping fences. He even held the title of champion hurdler of England.
But that isn’t why he’s remembered.
Don Blazer
He ran on the flat, too. For him it was a second career, and he set the unequaled record of winning the Alexandra Stakes at Ascot six successive years.
But that isn’t why he’s remembered.
He’s remembered because he had "style."
When you got "style" you’ve got that unique something no one can forget.

Meredith Manor Training Mythunderstandings -
Why Good Training Starts on the Ground
by Ron Meredith President, Meredith Manor International Equestrian Centre
When some students first arrive here at Meredith Manor they don't see the point of the ground work we call "heeding." Moving their horses around on the ground doesn't seem very exciting. They're impatient to get in the saddle and start riding. They might jabber something about "respect" or herd hierarchy or some other mumbo jumbo if I pushed them to come up with a reason why the ground work was important. But they really don't see much connection between how they, say, lead their horse from the barn to the arena and how they ask that horse to canter.
The horse experiences everything you do when you're with him as a positive or negative feeling. Positive feelings or experiences are non-stressful and keep the horse relaxed. Negative experiences are stressful, raise the horse's excitement level and make the horse tense. A horse must be relaxed before he can pay attention and learn. The horse that's tense is just looking for a way to get out of Dodge. And if he can't find one, he'll either blow or he'll shut down, depending on his inclination. There's no learning in going on with either one.

The British Horse Society BHS TREC 2001
The British Horse Society TREC is the most exciting new equestrian competition to reach the UK in decades. It has attracted hundreds of competitors in the three years it has been running so far because it appeals to the 'ordinary' rider who is looking for fun, not medals.
BHS TREC is a three-phase event. Phase One consists of orienteering on horseback, where riders follow a route on a map at pre-determined speeds. Phase Two tests control of paces, and Phase Three can be up to 5km long. This part of the competition involves the skills and hazards that any rider might encounter out hacking: mounting and dismounting, going through water, under low hanging trees, opening gates, traversing narrow paths, going over bridges, jumping fallen logs and so on. It is completely in tune with the BHS objectives to help riders improve their skills to make riding in the countryside safer and more enjoyable.
