British Horse Society Ragwort Bill enters final stage
Fears that conservations groups were prepared to wreck the British Horse Society (BHS) initiated Ragwort Control Bill thankfully proved unfounded in the House of Lords late last night (12 November). Amendments tabled prior to Report Stage were withdrawn during debate, enabling the Bill to move one stage closer to becoming law and provide for a code of practice with evidential status.
Amendment 1: Page 1, Line 5, leave out 'prevent the spread of' and insert 'reduce the risk of horses dying from eating [Ragwort]' tabled by the Lord Bishop of Hereford and in particular, Amendment 2: Leave out Clause 1, tabled by Lord Brooke of Sutton Mandeville would, if accepted, have effectively wrecked the Bill at almost the last stage. The amendments reflected concerns of the Wildlife & Countryside Link (Link), an umbrella group of 32 member organisations, on the effect a code of practice to control Ragwort would have on the plant's ecological status.

New Release - Dressage For Jumping With Richard Davison, John and Robert Whitaker
Dressage for Jumping is an innovative training video in which international dressage rider and double Olympian, Richard Davison, is joined by show jumping legend John Whitaker and his son Robert. The result is 90 minutes of fascinating and comprehensive instruction on the flat and over jumps as Richard's dressage expertise is moulded with the Whitakers' jumping prowess.
During the programme, Richard takes viewers through the training session, covering suppleness, yielding to the leg and half halt. He is joined by John Whitaker to assess the young jumping horse and together they tackle some common problems. With John and Robert Whitaker, Richard looks at seeing a stride including arriving correctly at take-off, shortening and lengthening on the flat and between jumps before moving on to look at jumping a course. Finally there are advanced exercises on the flat to perfect the turn and jumping against the clock.

New Full Length Riding Coat From Gumleaf
Gumleaf has launched the Carlisle full length riding coat which offers total protection whatever the weather.
“This coat is made in the UK on the lines of an Australian stock coat in a lightweight and supple dark brown wax,” says Gumleaf founder Alistair Paterson, who farms 1,000 acres in Norfolk.
“Cotton lined with a polyester drip band, leg straps and saddle gusset are standard and the coat can be snapped around the legs to convert to leggings in severe conditions.”
Both breathable and waterproof the Carlisle has an oiled nubuck padded leather collar and elbow patches and the cape can be removed to give a more “traditional English appearance”. The coat also benefits from hand warmer pockets for added user comfort.

However Belgium’s Jos Lansink, who slotted into third place with a double-clear from AK Caridor Z, is now stalking league leader Eric Van der Vleuten as he lies just one point behind on the leaderboard.
Van der Vleuten did not travel to Verona so this left the door wide open, particularly for Robert Smith who had been lying in second position, but despite excellent results for the British rider during the early stages of the Italian fixture he failed to capitalise on his win in Oslo when lowering two fences in the opening round today with Marius Claudius.

The Fjord Horse
Of all the modern equine breeds, the Norwegian Fjord horse bears the most striking resemblance to the Przewalski horse, also known as the Asiatic wild horse of the Ice Age, which has a very strong resemblance to primitive cave drawings that have been found in a number of places around the world. Existing in the wild only in the western area of the Gobi Desert, it was generally thought to be extinct, until a herd was discovered by a Russian explorer, Colonel N. M. Prezwalski (1839-1888), in the latter part of the nineteenth century
The Norwegian Fjord horse retains much of its ancestor's primitive vigour, as well as the uniform dun coat colour. The latter is accompanied by an eel stripe running from the forelock to the tip of the tail, and sometimes by zebra bars on the legs. The mane and tail are usually lighter in colour, being almost silver.
