The British Horse Society BHS Campaign on Riding Hats
VAT
At the last budget, the Chancellor decided to remove VAT from cycling helmets, but chose to ignore riding hats. Children's riding hats do not attract VAT, but adult hats do.
Second hand hats
As riding hats are expensive, do not be tempted to purchase a second hand one. It may seem like an ideal money saving idea, but buying a second hand hat could cost you your life. Riding is a high risk sport and it is vital that a hat which complies with the current safety standard is worn. It is impossible to tell with a second hand hat whether it has been in an accident before and if so, if it has any cracks or damage done to it. If a hat is damaged and someone is wearing it when they fall off, it will provide virtually no protection for their head.

ILPH Buy a Pony a Collar
The number of ponies killed on the roads in the New Forest last year showed an encouraging decrease compared to 1999.
Says Dave Guy, Field Officer for the ILPH (International League for the Protection of Horses), "The reason that the number of ponies killed in the forest fell from 100 in 1999 to 78 last year must be put down to the fact that a lot of them have now been fitted with reflective collars."
"The sad news is that over 50% of the vehicles involved in the reported road traffic accidents with ponies last year were driven by local motorists - so we are asking everybody who drives in the forest to please slow down !"
The reflective collars cost £7 each and so far only 22% of the ponies that frequent the parts of the forest where there are roads, are wearing them. So, to protect a few more ponies this Autumn as the evenings start to draw in, the ILPH is asking for donations to buy those unprotected ponies a reflective collar each.

Tippy Toe Plan The Old Place, Mount Holly, Arkansas
On hard ground and blazing heat, Dr. Jim McCall and his amazing 4 year old palomino stallion, Tippy Toe Plan, won the title of Palomino World Champion Junior Cutting Horse in Tulsa, Oklahoma . The team were the last to ride in the group of cattle. Searching for three good cows to impress the judges was not an easy feat. However, this horse and rider team are always up to put on a good show. They trapped three consecutive cows in the middle and Tippy dropped down and matched the moves of the cows step by step. In spite of the limitations of the hard surface, Tippy received a round of applause from the crowd for his characteristic crowd-pleasing style of cutting.
The World Championship title was the first major win for the team. Dr. McCall has been training horses for over 40 years but the last 30 years he spent as a college professor teaching horse training and management.

The British Horse Society BHS Pleads With Drivers
Following yet another serious accident involving a horse and rider, this time in Richmond Park, London on Thursday 9 August, the British Horse Society is pleading with motorists to be tolerant and considerate towards any rider they encounter.
Nicola Fox, 18 was teaching a group of young riders in the park when a van careered into two of the horses, killing one and leaving the other seriously injured. Nicola was crushed under the weight of the dying horse, and had to be freed by paramedics. The driver fled on foot, but the police were later questioning a man about the incident.
The British Horse Society estimate that there are over 3000 accidents a year involving horses on the roads, but the worrying fact in this case is that the accident happened in a royal park.

Biomechanics Learning About Biomechanics
by Kimberly Cruser,
Ventura Chapter, California Dressage Society

Organizer shares about the SportBallet Rider Biomechanics Clinic and USDF University accredited lecture given to members of the Ventura and Pomona California Dressage Society chapters in Dec 2000
For those of us on the continuing search for improvements to our riding skills, the USDF University accredited lecture given by Mr. Stephen Apatow to members of the Ventura and Pomona CDS chapters in Dec 2000, was a great opportunity to learn more about the biomechanics of the human body and the muscle control and tone needed to ride well.
.
Mr. Apatow gave an in-depth background on his own journey in other disciplines to find a base from which the human body can ideally work from, regardless of the sport. Ballet became the basis for his approach and understanding of how the human body should function. During the seminar, he gave the participants exercises with which to discover the current range of motion they had, and then ways to further develop towards the ideal. This was then carried out in more detail during the individual consultations that he gave.

14th August 2001 Rope Halters
This halter is made of rope with knots and is softer than the normal halter, but due to its smaller diameter more effective. With the wide nylon webhalters, horses tend to lean on them instead of respecting them. When the horse leans on the rope halter he applies pressure on himself and learns to yield from his own pressure - naturally.
These halters are durable, machine washable and a great tool for leading and boxing difficult horses.

13th August 2001 "Botulism In Horses"
by Morgan Crane
During my final year of university studying Bachelor of Systems Agriculture majoring in Equine Studies I undertook a project which identified problems within the horse industry. Botulism in horses is an issue that rears its head every few years resulting in major mortality.

Only when outbreaks of endemic disease receive publicity do we become aware of the problem.Horses have not been considered as livestock by the NSW Agriculture thus resulting in little information on the occurrences of diseases in horses.
Botulism has been a silent and deadly disease that has been around for many years, not only in horses but in humans and cattle as well. Botulism is not only an Australian disease, but also affects horses from all over the world. The clinical signs of the disease give horse's pain and depressions.
What is Botulism?
Botulism is a disease that affects not only horses but also a wide variety of animals. It is a tiny microorganism that has been a silent, but deadly killer, the casual agent identified as Clostridium botulinum. It is closely related to the bacterium that causes tetanus only it is more deadly. As with the tetanus bacteria, which are always present in the environment, so it is with Clostridium botulinum. Once the horses have the toxins in the system the incubation period for the organism is from 24 hours to several days. When it is within the horses system, the toxins reproduce repeatedly and rapidly in the horse's gut.
Eight distinct toxins of botulism have been identified, they are A, B, Ca, Cb, D, E, F and G. Some bacterial subtypes can produce more than one type of toxin. Types C and D are most common in Australia. The organism seems to grow best in neutral or alkaline conditions. It grows and produces toxins in anaerobic (minus oxygen) environments, such as both decaying vegetable matter and animal carcasses.

Thursday 23rd - Sunday 26th August 2001
Boost For Show Jumping At Blair
The popular showjumping classes at the Bowmore Blair Castle International Horse Trials and Country Fair received a cash boost recently.
Irish company, Nutri-science is putting up £1000 for sponsorship of the Blair Castle Open Championship on Sunday, 26th August.
The £900 cash plus £100 worth of products represents the biggest prize money awarded for a class at Blair Castle and, along with major sponsorship from local hotels and businesses, puts the three days of BSJA among the most lucrative in the Scottish showjumping circuit.
Sandra Low-Mitchell from Balcormo in Fife runs the competition in the magnificent setting of the white-walled castle and is expecting record entries of around 1500 again this year. In 2000 an extra ring had to be build to accommodate the massive entry.
Sandra, herself a top class showjumper, with a string of horses, swears by the joint supplement, Arthri-aid supplied by Nutri-science. She said, "I have found the equine supplement excellent, not only for older horses, but also for youngsters which are growing fast and for horses which are jumping on hard ground."
