The British Horse Society Charity Challenge Rides To Peru And Iceland
The British Horse Society is to run two more exciting riding challenges next year to raise funds for the BHS Rescue Centre. For over a decade the BHS has been actively rescuing and rehabilitating horses and ponies in cases of neglect and cruelty. In 1997 the Society opened its first dedicated national Rescue Centre. Based at Stonecroft yard at Oxhill in Warwickshire, the Centre provides facilities where horses and ponies can be nursed back to health under expert care and found new permanent homes.
The Inca Challenge is not for the faint hearted! Trekking through the Andes in Peru on mountain ponies, following the Inca trail to heights of 4650 metres, will require nerves of steel and a head for heights. Challengers will need to be fit and capable of hiking up and down gradients at altitude, often leading rather than riding your mount. Cargo mules and a colourful group of Quechua speaking wranglers will transport equipment and personal gear.

The Horse World Unites For National Laminitis Awareness Month
If only preventing laminitis was simply a question of keeping fat ponies away from rich grass, but every year horses and ponies of every breed and discipline contract this excessively painful illness.
The Laminitis Trust, a charity founded by Robert Eustace, FRCVS, director of The Laminitis Clinic in Wiltshire, has designated May 2001 Laminitis Awareness Month to educate horse owners and riders on how best to avoid this crippling and often fatal disease and to raise funds for vital research.
In its mildest form laminitis presents as a mild lameness, a reluctance to move, or, if more severely affected, the animal lying down to try and get some relief from its painful feet. Sometimes the horse will be sweating, groaning and blowing giving rise to the misdiagnosis of colic. During severe attacks, however, the attachment between the pedal bone and hoof capsule starts to fail. This is described as foundering. The most severe form of founder is where the pedal bone becomes loose within the hoof and is described as a "sinker" - the majority of cases of which will die without rapid and expert treatment.

HOYS HOYS Booms!
Against a backdrop of stars, approximately 45,000 visitors enjoyed six magical days at the Horse of the Year Show (HOYS). With the Show enjoying capacity crowds during prime performances, the buoyant atmosphere at this year's Show was euphoric. Nick Skelton, who has attended the show every year since 1973, commented that the Show was the "best in 25 years."
"The event has been a resounding success" commented Mark Wein, a Director of Grandstand Media Ltd, the Show Organisers. "Visitors came to HOYS in their thousands to enjoy the unique mix of fierce competition, superb displays and fantastic shopping that make up this unique annual event."
HOYS is the pinnacle of the national show jumping season, and is the one show that every show jumper, from the junior riders through to the seniors, all want to win. Perhaps one of the most prestigious classes is the Horse & Hound Foxhunter Final, named after Sir Harry Llewellwyn's great horse "Foxhunter", won this year by William Funnell on Mondriaan. This class is seen as a pointer for the superstars of the future and many winners have gone on to become great show jumping stars. Graham Fletcher commented, "the whole show was pure entertainment" with the show jumping "producing slick, enjoyable competitions for competitors and spectators alike."

Ridgeway Sponsored Ride
Earlier this year equestrian legend Ginny Elliot accepted the invitation by Spinal Research to become a Patron and in particular to become the figure-head for their Saddle-Up Campaign. The Campaign was developed for riders by riders to raise funds for a cause that is close to their hearts - mending broken backs and necks. "This issue is so important for riders. And Spinal Research's work is vital for future generations of riders. I'm glad to be part of it", was Ginny's response.
Spinal Research believes that impending treatments will benefit those who have already sustained paralysing injuries and prevent those who will break their neck or back in the future from becoming permanently paralysed. The Saddle-Up Campaign has already raised over £30,000 for the charity's new research programme but they need to raise £3 million a year to pay for clinical trials in 2005.
Ginny has supported the Trust in so many ways, but she wanted to do something positive to help get clinical trials up and running and she came up with the idea of the Ridgeway Sponsored Ride. Ginny recalls the buzz of riding into London over 15 years ago in support of the Wishing Well Appeal and would like to recreate some of the goodwill she encountered on her route to raise funds for Spinal Research.

Body Type and Proper Movement
© Equine Management, Auction, and Appraisal Services, Inc
The horse world, like many other industries, has its own language that the uninitiated often find mystifying. Unfortunately many people involved with horses still make mistakes with terms, perpetuating confusion and misunderstandings between people. It is very difficult to convey ideas and conditions to another when uncertainty of the language exists.
One of the most common areas where people err with the terminology is with conformation and movement. Not only is one term mistaken for another, but misconceptions abound over what is actually the proper word for the situation. An understanding is essential to speak knowledgeably about horses and comprehend how professionals handle faults and accentuate virtues in conformation and movement.
Many faults related to conformation are not necessarily problematic in themselves, but become so when paired with another defect.
Gait abnormalities may arise from many different sources. Conformation defects will affect the horse's ability to move in a smooth regular gait because the footfalls are affected. Age of the horse is also an incriminating factor when problems develop in movement. Young horses need time to develop their bodies and learn how to carry the tack and rider. As they grow, they will go through periods of clumsiness that must be tolerated and understood by the trainer until he once again rebalances. Older horses will experience changes in their joints and muscles that may alter his way of going. Arthritis may start causing pain that affects the gait. Again the rider must be understanding of what the horse is experiencing. A third culprit of gait problems is rider error. An unbalanced seat, heavy hands or insecure leg could interfere with how the horse moves. A lack of communication may also cause the horse to take missteps, as he does not understand what the rider is asking. In this situation it is critical for the rider to evaluate his own ability in the saddle and take the lessons necessary to polish his skills.
