British Brilliant on Home Ground at Hickstead!
The British stormed to victory on their home ground in Hickstead today, catapulting themselves into third position on the Samsung Super League leaderboard and firmly underlining their return to the top level of international show jumping.
Their hunger for a win had been clear since early in the season and, despite a disappointing result in Aachen, they looked to be ever-improving in recent months but today they were simply the best, although they were almost forced into a jump-off with France.
The French were unlucky when a mistake from Michel Robert and Galet D’Auzay at the very last fence denied them a two-way jump-off with the eventual winners and it was a close-fought thing right to the end.

As has happened so many times over the years, the derby-style Hickstead fences produced plenty of surprises and Belgium’s chances were shattered when Dirk Demeersman’s Clinton simply refused to take on the water-jump and then Jean Claude Vangeenberghe also suffered elimination as Richebourg appeared to become anxious after clearing the water and jammed on the brakes at the following double.

European Dressage Title Up For Grabs
Final declarations of horses and riders for the European Dressage Championships to be held at Hickstead, Sussex on 14th - 17th August indicate a wide-open field, with the very real possibility of the title going to a non-German.
There are question marks over the participation of Ulla Salzgeber's Rusty, pending the results of a second sample drug test, and the absence of Nadine Capellman's Farbenfroh from the German squad leaves the door wide open for other strong contenders.
Anky van Grunsven recently completed her qualification for the Championships with Gestion Salinero and comes to the event with brand new music for the Freestyle written by Cees Slings, the well-known music writer who also co-wrote the Championships' theme music with rock musician, Mike Rutherford. Spanish rider, Beatrice Ferrar-Salat and Beauvalais will be strong contenders having clinched silver at the WEG, and the USA's Lisa Wilcox and Relevant will be worth watching. The Germans now have until 1st August to name their final team members.

Show Jumping - Ireland Gear Up For Vital Battle At Hickstead
LAGGING just half a point behind the leaders France, Ireland will compete at the Samsung Super League competition in Hickstead, England, tomorrow (Friday) at 2.15 pm.

Lulworth (GBR) - The eleventh leg and third British qualifier will take from 25 through 27 July at the Lulworth International Horse Trials (GBR).

Warwick (AUS) - The twelfth leg and second Australian qualifier of the FEI Eventing World Cup will take place at Morgan Park, Warwick from 26 - 27 July.

Inmates are the Worlds Best Dressage Horses
Hotel bookings take on a new light where Linda Short is concerned. Her clients have four legs not two, and have many special requirements. This year she will 'up sticks' from her home in Wool, Dorset, and relocate to a field in Sussex for two weeks in order to arrange the accommodation for some very important equine visitors. For the first time in 16 years the European Dressage Championships are being held in Great Britain, and top riders from as far a field as Japan and Australia are planning to attend. Closer to home, this is also the last opportunity for our own national riders, and other nations, to qualify for the 2004 Olympics so tension will be high.
Linda, a Patients Affairs Manager at Poole Hospital, has been Stable Manager for Dressage at Hickstead, almost since its inception in 1993. 'Volunteered' by her daughter, Twiggy, when she was employed by Show Director Dane Rawlins as a groom, and who confesses, "Dane was looking for someone to manage the stabling at Hickstead, so of course, being the ever helpful employee, I said, my mum could do that!"
"And the rest" comments Linda dryly, but with a sparkle in her eye "is history. Together Twiggy and I take up residence in a caravan which becomes our home for the duration of the show."
This year is, however, by far the largest, and most prestigious competition the venue has presented, and Linda's responsibilities are quite daunting. The stable compound affectionately known as 'Linda Land' provides five star accommodation for horses whose combined value could probably purchase the most exclusive hotel in the world twice over!

The Lure Of The Hamptons & Horses For Melissa Cohn
Business, Riding and Sponsorships Make a Good Match In the Hamptons

Disgruntled Portia the Pig wears factor 25 to prevent crackling!
Portia the Pig, featured recently on ITV1's hit programme "Talking to Animals", needs lots of suntan lotion to protect her skin from the bright sunshine at her home at HorseWorld, in Whitchurch, Bristol.
Portia is a pot-bellied pig, and came to HorseWorld in 2000 when she was rescued from a third-floor flat. She is very grumpy, and does not like being handled, but must have suntan lotion applied several times a day to protect her sensitive skin. Lorna Brown, Portia's Groom, said: "Portia is a real character, and used to hate having her suntan lotion applied. She's just like a big kid really! We asked Sarah Fisher, from Talking to Animals, to help us with Portia, and it's really worked. We can get close enough now to put Portia's suntan lotion on without being squealed at too much or charged!"

Parker, CO, July 19, 2003— When Paul Rohrbach rode into the ring for the second round of the $25,000 Working Hunter Classic, he knew he had to have a clean and expressive trip.

Although it has taken three years for Carmen to come into her own, she now leads the USA Equestrian national standings for regular working hunter.

The Longest Ride Corp.
Australia's Horse Highway & Trails network .
" SEE AUSTRALIA BY HORSE "
This project represents the greatest tourist income opportunity in Australia's history - for a single mainland facility. The trail-using market in the Northern Hemisphere is massive.

The proposal is to build the longest, most diversified, wilderness Horse Trail network in the World. Stage 1 is planned for Queensland as a $34m national prototype to access four major Airports along the way - Cairns, Rockhampton, Brisbane and Toowoomba.
How did the Horse Highway proposal develop?
It came about as a result of my inclination to ride Australia's Bicentennial National Trail (BNT) and produce a documentary of the adventure. I found that the BNT Association had been in poverty for 12 years. They were struggling to keep the Trail open.

Parker, CO, July 19, 2003— The ominous, dark sky prior to the start of the $60,000 AGA Grand Prix of Denver presented by Dillards and Ariat gave some indication of weather to come. Horses and riders from five countries and 10 states faced not only large and technical obstacles designed by Brazil’s Guilherme Noguiera-Jorge, but had the added handicap of gusts of wind, a downpour and a light show courtesy of mother nature.
Of the thirty-six entrants, only four advanced to the jump-off. Jorge Zavala, of El Contadero, Mexico, proved that the shortened course could be jumped without error, but his time was quickly cut by more than two seconds by Enrique Gonzalez, also of Mexico.
Local favorite John McConnell, of Elizabeth, Colorado, sprinted around the course, but a miscommunication with his beautiful mare Spanish Eyes resulted in a refusal that dashed any hopes of a victory.
While lightning illuminated the sky overhead, Renee Lenkart, of Delano, Minnesota, proved once again the ladies could beat the boys. Lenkart blazed around the course and stopped the clock more than a half of a second faster than Gonzalez. Lenkart’s mount Opal is only in her first year of competing at the grand prix level, but coped with the added weather elements like a true professional. Please click here for further details

Gifted Individual Adam Shereston proves his abilities with Stable Talk magazine
Adam Shereston, who is no stranger to being in the lime light, has once again defied all odds and come up trumps in showing his abilities to Stable Talk magazine. Adam, who feels and heals pains and psychological disorders with horses, was invited to Stable Talk near Manchester, where he attended to some of their horses and riders. Could this be, someone who actually talks with the horses and heals them with his bare hands?
Well, from recent reports and the reports from Stable Talk, obviously he can. This gifted individual who is presently touring around the UK, spent two days with Stable Talk to yet again show his talents and abilities. Considering how much scepticism there is about, it is no wonder he has to keep proving what he does. To know what a horse is thinking and feeling at any one time is an extradinary gift to possess in its own right, but to actually heal the problem as well is truly remarkable.

At Hayward's Heath Magistrates Court, today, Friday 18 July, David Jack and Jason Passey were found guilty of causing unnecessary suffering to a 10 hh 18 month old bay filly known as Isla.

Kurten Bounces Back At San Patrignano
AFTER A few months of low profile on the international stage, Ireland's Jessica Kurten bounced back at the four-star Italian venue of San Patrignano tonight (Friday) with a convincing win on her nine-year-old mare Quibell.
With a 6,000 Euro purse at stake, Kurten was just fractions of a second ahead of Dutch rider Peter Geerink, and saw her team-mate Robert Splaine steer his seemingly unshakable Coolcorron Cool Diamond into Third for a hefty share of the prize money.
International selectors will be closely watching both riders, with next week's Hickstead looming, and the subsequent choice to be made as to who represents Ireland at the Super League fixture at Dublin in August.
