Samsung Nations Cup Final In Madrid
The Netherlands came out on top in a thrilling finish to the 2000/2001 Samsung Nations Cup Series which went right down to the wire as the last rider into the ring decided the result.And it was the hot-favourites from Germany, joint-leaders with the Dutch after the first round, who lost out as only a clear from Heinrich Hermann Engemann would clinch the title for his side but, last to go, he returned with four fences down to drop his side to fourth behind the host team from Spain in third.
Belgium finished a very close with Ludo Philippaerts and Parco, who claimed the Leading Horse and Rider titles in the year-long Samsung Nations Cup league, putting in yet another superb double-clear performance

It is even more astonishing when you consider that, as yet, not one advert or leaflet has been distributed. It really demonstrates the depth of feeling the public and the equestrian community have for their Sovereign.”

In the frontier days of the United States, the expression was "Go west, young man."  For Tom Reed, the owner of Morningside Stud in County Clare, Ireland, the expression is "Go east - to China!"
Morningside Stud has established a presence in Hong Kong, a special administrative region of the People's Republic of China (PRC).  From this new base in Hong Kong, Tom hopes to contribute to the growing interest in equestrian sports in Asia by helping riders and breeders access excellent competition horses and top breeding stock from Ireland and continental Europe.  And with the 2008 Olympics planned for Beijing, PRC, Tom sees boundless opportunities.

Training Mythunderstandings The Three Times You Should Punish Your Horse
If you've ever taken riding lessons, you can relate to your horse when it comes to being corrected for something you didn't do quite right. Maybe the instructor just got a little sarcastic. Or maybe she raised things to the level of a good scold. Maybe you messed up big time and got yelled at big time. Or maybe to prove her point about what you did wrong, the instructor got really stern and made you do whatever it was over and over and over to drill into your head.
Whatever happened, as the instructor got louder or pushier or stricter you probably didn't feel very good about what you were doing. Your first reaction was probably a knot in your stomach. Or you got nervous or afraid or grumpy or mad or resentful. Even if you knew you earned the dressing down you got, going through it didn't make you feel very good about riding that day.
Worst of all, you probably didn't learn much of anything except that going back into the arena with that instructor wasn't something you were looking forward to.
That's why we teach our students that there are three times you punish a horse for doing something wrong--never, never and never.

Herbs, Oils and a Pinch of Love
Our horses become a very special part of our lives. With the speeding up of time we are busy rushing here and there, looking for quick fixes and generally compounding any issue we have in our lives due to our own haste. When we start to look within and spend quality time with our horses, the insights we can learn from them can open up a new exploration of the world around us.
One way to take time is to look at how we can work with our horses naturally. With domestication and our hectic routines our horses are close to losing touch with their ancient roots. We can reintroduce into their lives a selection of herbs and aromas from essential oils that will help all of us get back to a natural state of being.
Herbs
Herbs can be traced back to their use with several American Indian tribes and the Romani Gypsies of Europe. Both these cultures had accomplished horsemen and women who combined their training methods with the use of herbs. Even using herbs can be seen in the works of Xenophon in his book The Art of Horsemanship where is notes the importance of adding herbs to horses bran of an evening.
Aromatherapy
With many of our horses being stabled and not able to get out often due to our land restriction, essential oils can bring a touch of brain sunshine into their lives. Aromatherapy is a relatively new therapy. The use of essential oils can be documented throughout the ages, but its modern application is less than one hundred years. The beauty of aromatherapy is your horse can assist you with the selection of what he considers is most appropriate.
The Pinch of Love
These therapies are useful in their own right, however when they are done with love and intention the increased effect can be ten-fold.
