San Patrignano CSI-A (ITA)

Equestrian sport against drugs and social outcasting

Olaf Petersen: Building a course is like a Hamlet performance.
Olaf Petersen, the international course designer who has been building fences here since the beginning, always enjoys coming to this Italian show. Not only because of the international atmosphere, but also because of the people. The German national builds courses all around the world but this one has a particular human aspect to it: " Years ago a program was created here to help people. That spirit is to be felt all around this arena when I come here to build the courses. If I leave here, I always feel content about my work and the people. Usually I only need one hour to change an arena into a perfect course, here we have the time to take 6! There is not too much pressure during the day, giving us the opportunity to talk to each other and get to know each other better."

How Hoof Proof are your feet?
Every horse rider is exposed to a horse accidentally treading on their feet.
An accident can happen in a flash of a second, often resulting in, at best a bruise and at worst broken toes. There are all kinds of risks at the stables, nevertheless you often see people wearing flimsy trainers, rubber riding boots or soft leather boots.
Yet a properly constructed boot with toe protection especially designed for riding as well is as yard work, would eliminate most of the risks. Equitector riding boots was a pioneer in this field and in 1991 we launched our first truly safe riding boot.
All Equitector riding boots have an integral steel toe cap which cannot be felt nor seen. When wearing a pair of our boots, you would not know that you are wearing a steel toe capped boot, nor would any one else and they do not feel any heavier than any other style of boot.
The inbuilt protection is there just in case of the unforeseen.

The candidature to the European Championships it is a new, important, objective that we strongly wish to achieve. It would be an unprecedented event in the whole worldwide sports to organize such an event within a community for the rehabilitation of drug addicts.

Horse Logical Body Building
WAVERLY, WV Horse training is a mental game played in a physical medium. Here at Meredith Manor, we use a system we call “heeding” to teach students the rules of the mental games they play with their horses. They learn how to use corridors of methodically applied, horse-logical pressures to show, ask, and eventually tell their horses what shapes they want them to take.
They also need to methodically develop their horse’s physical abilities in order to play whatever game they’ve decided they like whether it’s dressage or reining or jumping or cutting or whatever. Like any athlete, a baby horse needs to learn how to use his body the right way. He has to find his balance. He needs to build his muscles, his strength, in order to play our games.
If a student came to me and asked for advice on how to develop strong stomach muscles and I told him to start doing 200 crunches daily, his muscles would be pretty sore after the first day. He might be mentally sore at me, too, and probably disinclined to listen to any more of my advice. But if I’d advised him to do 20 crunches for several days, then to add another 10 for several days, and then another 10 and so on, he would eventually get up to that 200 a day without getting so sore he be discouraged.

Six English Ladies In Turkmenistan
It was a real dilemma. What do you do when you find yourself, at 4 a.m., in a tent on a high plateau in the mountains of Turkmenistan, the gurgling noises of your lurching stomach competing with the howling of the jackals? Do you go out and hope you do not meet a snake or a scorpion? Do you stay in and hope to hang on until daybreak? In the end I had little option. So I unzipped my tent and cautiously tiptoed through the wiry clumps of spiky grass away from the camp until I found a convenient furrow. The muezzin, sung for real and not a recorded version, called the faithful of the remote village through which we had passed the previous evening, to prayer. Feeling much better, I stood for a while under the stars. The moon was so bright I could see my own shadow as I walked back to my tent. Down below, our horses were grazing, the foals sticking close to their mothers, the stallion, the only one to be tethered, occasionally throwing up his head and issuing forth a challenge to any passing rivals.
We made a curious caravan, deep in the Kopet Dag mountains that form the buffer zone between Turkmenistan and Iran. Six English ladies (as we were labelled), a wild Russian guide (who must have been a horse in a previous life), an even wilder Turkmen guide who appeared suddenly through the haze one morning, five Akhal-Teke mares, two foals, one yearling and a couple of stallions.

Lorenza O'Farril Upsets Ragan Roberts In $50,000 Rocky Mountain Grand Prix
July 14, 2002 Reported by: Marnye Langer
Not only was the prize money on the line in the $50,000 Rocky Mountain Grand Prix, July 12 of the Colorado Summer Circuit, but Ragan Roberts (AR) had the chance to win an additional $25,000. As an added bonus to grand prix riders, Helen Krieble of High Prairie Farms offered $25,000 to any rider who could win two of the three Colorado Summer Circuit grand prix events, and $100,000 if a rider won all three events.
As the winner of the first grand prix, Roberts had his eye on the rider prize. When he jumped clear in this second grand prix, the $25,000 was in reach. Thirty-five horses contested Guillherme Noguiera Jorge’s (BRA) challenging course. “I didn’t have a chance to see all the horses during the week, so the course was not too difficult,” explained Jorge of his track that took riders all around the large derby field. “The time allowed played an important part today,” he added. And in fact, the time allowed was an integral part of the course with six horses jumping clean, but accruing time faults. “Every ribbon winner except the fastest four faulter was clean,” commented jumper judge Walt Malkiewicz. “You don’t see those kind of results very often.”
