Pippa Looks For Fourth Hickstead Win
Badminton winner and European champion Pippa Funnell, already on the crest of an eventing wave, has her sights firmly set on another landmark win this year - a fourth victory in the showjumper/event rider annual "needle match" at the Golden Jubilee Royal International Horse Show (July 24-28).
The Eventing Grand Prix is a novel mix of eventing and showjumping obstacles which starts and finishes in Hickstead's famous International Arena but with the middle section threading through showground owner Douglas Bunn's garden!
Pippa, with Anne Burnet's mare The Tourmaline Rose, has won three of the four runnings of this innovative competition where victory has so far eluded the showjumpers - although last year Michael Whitaker ran her a very close second.
The Eventing Grand Prix also pairs off riders from each discipline, with individual scores amalgamated to find a winner. One pair in the Pairs Challenge will be sponsored by Jumpers Horseline, while new fence sponsor Devoucoux will be branding one of the cross country fences.

BHS Access Week 2002 - highlighting the need for safer off road riding
Plans are in hand to mark the British Horse Society's JUBILEE ACCESS Week - 25 May - 4 June. The week will concentrate on the BHS presenting awards to local authorities, landowners and individuals who have all addressed the needs of riders for equestrian access.
The aim of BHS Access Week is to highlight the need for more off road riding for horse riders and carriage drivers. Today's roads are too busy, and today's drivers too impatient, to enable riders to use the roads safely. There are an estimated 3000 accidents involving horses on the roads every year, and the BHS is campaigning for measures to reduce that number.
This year there will be twelve "Route Creation Awards" to landowners who have set up permissive bridleways or new trails and nine "Good Guy Awards" made to individuals or local authorities who have consistently worked to open up bridleways and provide more equestrian routes.

Businesses Must Look To Safety, Says SEIB
Liability insurance becoming more difficult and expensive
Public liability insurance could become difficult to get in coming months - and the situation could pose a threat to riding schools and livery yards
The situation is a result of high awards being made by the courts, coupled with shock waves from the terrorist attack on New York's twin towers. Insurance companies are now viewing liability cover with much more care than ever before and some high-profile companies are even pulling out of the market altogether. Riding Schools, livery yards and other equestrian businesses with bad claims records could find premiums rocketing - or be uninsurable.
"Claims today could result in courts awarding damages running into millions of pounds," says Barry Fehler, managing director of South Essex Insurance Brokers, one of the few companies still able to arrange this type of cover. "It has not been helped by people being encouraged to resort to litigation, but the two situations together have resulted in a quite serious closing down of this market."
In the future, it is likely to be only insurers with a large volume of liability business who will be willing to take on new clients, and even they will be examining renewals more closely than ever before.
Riding schools, and if DEFRA minister Elliot Morley pursues his comments on widening licensing laws, livery yards, would also need public liability insurance to continue trading.

Horse Shows In The Sun Announces Two Grand Prix Classes Weeks I Through V at HITS Catskills in Ellenville, New York
Saugerties, NY (May 10, 2002) Horse Shows In the Sun, Inc. (HITS), producer of six world class hunter/jumper horse show circuits nationwide, has announced that HITS Catskills, a six-event summer series of horse shows in Ellenville, New York, will offer a $75,000 Grand Prix every Sunday in 2002. In addition, HITS Catskills will offer a $25,000 Grand Prix each Thursday of Weeks I through V. This puts HITS Catskills total prize money at over $1,000,000. All eleven of the Grand Prix Classes offered at HITS Catskills are qualifying events for the King Shavings U.S. Grand Prix League. Riders compete in qualifying classes at more than 45 member horse shows nationwide, earning points that may result in an invitation to the King Shavings U.S. Grand Prix League Invitational Finals to be held September 25-29, 2002 at HITS Commonwealth Park in Culpeper, VA.
HITS Catskills is a great cross-section of the people involved in the sport, said Tom Struzzieri, owner and president of HITS. This series appeals to all different types of exhibitorsfrom the family who brings one child on a pony to Olympians on their Grand Prix horses. The majority of the East Coast's top show jumpers compete at these shows. It is appropriate for HITS to respond to this type of participation by offering high stakes prize money. We also are working to build a stronger spectator base. By establishing a show with top level prize money and riders, we expect to attract additional attention to the show and to the sport."

How will you be listening at this year's Chatsworth International Horse Trials?
Computer Sciences Corporation sponsors information provision system at premier sporting event, 11th- 12th May 2002
9th May 2002: Computer Sciences Corporation - one of the world's leading IT services firms, with growing business interests in Derbyshire and Yorkshire - is sponsoring the public address system at this year's Chatsworth International Horse Trials.
Chatsworth, the Derbyshire home of the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire, will be welcoming the world's top riders this weekend (11th-12th May). The 1,000 acre Park, on the banks of the river Derwent, is not only an invaluable local leisure destination but also one of the country's most spectacular settings for international eventing.
"CSC is particularly proud to be supporting and entertaining the rural community as they recover from the foot and mouth epidemic, which caused last year's event to be cancelled," said Tony Cliffe, Director, Business Development for Computer Sciences Corporation.
"Efficient and effective information provision will be particularly important this year, as the event now includes an entertainment arena as well as the usual showjumping area, acting as a focus for a wide variety of additional countryside pursuits and businesses," added Tony.

Mini Foal Named after Norwich City Captain
The first Spring foal at ILPH (International League for the Protection of Horses) Hall Farm, Snetterton, near Norwich, came into the world early in the morning of Thursday 9 May, measuring in at just 55 cms or 18".
Although staff knew that Rosie, an 8.3 hh 8 year old skewbald miniature Shetland, was near her time they were thrilled to find her with a sturdy colt foal when they came into work on Thursday morning.
Comments Tony Tyler, ILPH Hall Farm Manager, "Rosie came to us already in foal in January with 13 other ponies. She was in poor condition and infested with lice.
"We are over the moon that she has given birth to a lovely, healthy, strong little colt foal and because we are all Norwich City supporters we have decided to call him Iwan, in honour of Norwich City's Captain, and hero, Iwan Roberts !"

Clear Gaps In Border Controls Threaten EU Equine Industry
The Annual General Meeting of the European Federation of Thoroughbred Breeder's Association (EFTBA) will be reminded that Border Inspection Posts are the first line of defence against the importation of animal diseases - including equine diseases which could be severely detrimental to the sector.
The point will be raised as part of a joint presentation by EFTBA Chairman Ms Eimear Mulhern; and Mr Cathal Lynch from the Irish Business Bureau.
"Whilst the EU have provided considerable support in terms of thorough inspections and a report on these facilities, the EFTBA is extremely concerned that the standard of veterinary checks on live animals obviously varies considerably from country to country; and, in some cases, is practically non-existent," says Ms Mulhern. "We only have to look at the recent Foot & Mouth Disease outbreak to appreciate the potential consequences of this."
Ms Mulhern will call on Thoroughbred Breeding Associations throughout its 22 member countries to maintain pressure on their own national Governments who are responsible for operating Border Inspection Posts.

Gunner Named 2002 USET Breyer Model Horse
Gladstone, NJ—May 9, 2002—The United States Equestrian Team (USET) is pleased to announce that Gunner, owned by Debra Sloan and ridden to the 2001 USET Reining Championship by Bryant Pace, has been chosen as the 2002 USET Breyer model horse. Gunner is the seventh Breyer model in the popular USET series.
With three different riders proving his versatility and athleticism, Gunner was the 1996 NRHA Futurity Reserve Champion, the 1998 National Reining Breeders Classic Reserve Champion, and the 2001 USET Champion. He is currently 2nd in NRHA lifetime money earnings.
The Breyer Hollywood Dun It sliding stop mold was used to create the Gunner model. The specially designed Gunner horse will be limited to a run of 750. Purchase of this special edition model is limited to two (2) per customer or address. In the past, these models have sold out quickly and become true collectibles for horse enthusiasts.

BETA Scores 'Non-Heating' Victory
BETA is celebrating after securing the right for feed manufacturers to continue to use the words 'non-heating' and 'cool' on packaging.
After many months of negotiations with the Food Standards Agency and LACOTS (Local Authorities Coordinating Office for Food and Trading Standards) an agreement has been reached between all parties over a definition for 'non-heating' and by inference 'cool'.
The issue over the description arose after a Trading Standards Officer in Surrey complained to several BETA members about the use of common claims which included 'non-heating' and 'cool' on the basis that they were not scientifically substantiable. The industry was concerned that should they be forced to cease using these terms, other words to describe the same effect would be developed and used or other points of reference, such as protein, may be incorrectly used by consumers seeking guidance in their purchasing decisions.
To negotiate and work out a satisfactory way forward the BETA Energy Working Party was set up, chaired by BETA Chief Executive Claire Williams.

Olympic Veteran Anne Kursinski DominatesGarden State Grand Prix At Garden State Horse Show
Out of a field of 26, only four horses kept the rails in the cups in the $45,000 Garden State Grand Prix, and three of them were ridden by three-time U.S Olympic veteran Anne Kursinski of Flemington, NJ. The Garden State Grand Prix was the highlight of the Garden State Horse Show, held May 1-5 at the Sussex County Fairgrounds in Augusta, NJ.
Kursinski’s winning horse was Eros, not a surprise considering their long and successful history together. Eros was Kursinski’s mount on the USET’s Silver Medal team at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics. It had been a while since Eros and Kursinski had led the victory gallop and that made Kursinski even more thrilled.
Kursinski’s other two mounts that qualified for the jump-off are young jumpers who exhibited their strong talent in the grand prix ring. This combination of young and experienced horses in the Grand Prix was a major factor for course designer Anthony D’Ambrosio when building the course.
“It was a slightly mixed field,” said D’Ambrosio. “So I built a course that was demanding enough to separate them and technical enough without being overly scopey. Like the triple — I used two verticals to an oxer. It was more careful and gymnastic-like instead of needing power and scope.”
The only rider other than Kursinski to finish clean over the first course was James Benedetto of Northport, NY, riding Cacique. The nine-year-old Holsteiner is owned by Benedetto and the Kamine Family.

The Story of Horse Racing’s Original “Iron Horse”
Lexington, KY (May 9, 2002) Eclipse Press announces the publication of Round Table, the latest addition to the Thoroughbred Legends series.
Round Table was an everyman’s horse. In an era when larger-than-life racehorses such as Native Dancer, Swaps, and Nashua became national heroes, Round Table quietly and steadily racked up victories.
In Round Table, longtime editor and writer John McEvoy tells the inspirational story of the horse who gave his all every time. In a career spanning four years, from 1956 to 1959, Round Table raced an amazing sixty-six times, winning forty-three races. He did everything asked of him: he traveled coast to coast, carried weight, stayed, and sprinted. He was a Horse of the Year, a handicap champion, and a turf champion. Like a little machine, Round Table would not quit.
Although a small, unassuming brown horse, Round Table was regally bred by Kentucky’s famed Claiborne Farm. With the death of Claiborne founder A.B. Hancock Sr., Round Table was sold to help pay estate taxes, in essence saving the farm.

Horsemen "Riding For America"
By Diana Volk
Horsemen all over the United States will be saddling up, riding for freedom in the most famous ride of our present day history "Riding for America". It is possible for you, your family or friends to become part of the ride that will make history as it crosses the country riding for Freedom, riding to be an American, riding together as a group proving that we are from an united nation, carrying on what another country started in the "Cowboy Way"
Cowboys and cowgirls, headed by Gregg and Debbi Hampton, from Alberta, Canada wanting to reach out a comforting hand to Americans in the shadow of the terrorist act of September 11th started a horseback ride collecting donations, headed toward the United States border to pass on what they had collected calling it "Alberta Rides for America". As the morning of September 25th dawned riders could be seen for miles converging on the United States and Canadian border with riders from three nations. The United States, Blackfeet Nation and Canada with 200 plus riders strong were joined together in a ride for freedom. Several of the Blackfeet Tribal Council rode in the event, Earl Old Person, chairman in full ceremonial dress, including drummers and singers to honor the meeting, singing the "Warrior Song and Flag Song". The Blackfeet Nation fed all the hungry riders before their return home, as nations were united and souls were united.

Is It My Fault - Or My Horse's?
WAVERLY, WV--Every rider has experienced the situation where they ask their horse for a particular shape or movement and either nothing happens or something other than what they wanted happens. You apply the aids for a left lead canter and the horse just keeps walking along as though nothing changed at all. Or you apply those aids and the horse wrings its tail and moves off at a brisk trot instead of the intended canter. What went wrong?
Without "being there" and observing the interaction, the only thing we can say for sure is that the communication between you and your horse failed. Why it failed is a more complicated issue that frustrates multitudes of riders daily. You are not alone.
Communication can fail because of rider error. It can fail because the horse is not sufficiently far along in its training to understand the shape that the rider's aids suggest. It can fail because the horse is physically unable to take the shape because of conformation faults, old injuries, lingering soreness from yesterday's workout, or equipment that restricts or interferes with the shape. It can fail because the horse is mentally burned out. Or the communication can fail because the horse simply has the kind of personality that says that day, "I don't want to," or "You can't make me"or "You didn't ask the right way so I'm going to ignore that."
You need to examine your particular communication failure from all of those different perspectives in order to figure out why things didn't go according to your plan. The first thing to ask yourself is whether the horse is capable of understanding your request. Where is he in his training? Is this something he's just learned or a movement he's been doing for some time?
