Spillers' equine nutritionist Clare Barfoot provides one H&H forum user with some helpful advice on how to feed a horse with suspected gastric ulcersQ: “My dressage horse hasn’t been quite right. He hates having his rugs on, fidgets when I tack him up, is fussy about having his feet picked out with his saddle on, has started moving away when I try to get on and is reluctant to go off my leg as much as he was. All of these signs lead me to think he might have gastric ulcers. If the vet tells me this is the case, what recommendations do you have for feed and supplements? He is in substantial work.”A: You are right to investigate gastric ulcers especially if these are all new behaviours at least to confirm or eliminate ulcers as a cause. If your vet does confirm a diagnosis firstly he will ne

condition score your horse | farming futures

Condition scoring your horse is an objective assessment of his current body condition, essentially scoring fat cover.The level of fat cover is assessed using a numeric grading system.There are a number of factors that can affect the condition score of a horse. Primarily condition is related to feed intake, but also other factors such as fitness, age, pregnancy and general health will be influential.Many horse owners find it difficult to differentiate between fat and muscle. Condition scoring needs to be hands-on in order to feel the relevant areas of the horse.The areas where horses store fat are:Neck – including their toplineOver their shouldersRibsBackboneRump (pelvis area)Top of the tailA top tip is to divide your horse into three sections, condition score each area and then divide your

how to feed a barefoot horse — horse & hound

Spillers' equine nutritionist Clare Barfoot provides one H&H forum user with some helpful advice on how to feed a barefoot horse for optimum healthQ: “Feeding a barefoot cob — I’m very new to horse ownership and want to research the best diet I should be feeding my cob cross, who I believe has been barefoot her whole life (she is nine-years-old). She’s on full livery, so gets fed as part of that, but I want to make sure she’s having what she should be to keep her and her hooves in the best condition.

'i feel fantastic': tim stockdale back competing after fall

australian cup favourite humidor examined on morning of race

A barrage of social media concerning the wellbeing of Australian Cup favourite Humidor sent shockwaves through the Australian racing world on Saturday morning.However, it seems that the outcry about the condition of Humidor was the result of an oversight by the four-year-old's strapper.
Jockey Damian Lane (left) rides Humidor. Photo: Getty ImagesRacing Victoria stewards said that they did a stable inspection at 3am on Saturday morning at the Warrnambool stables of Darren Weir and found a plunger from a syringe in top-line galloper Humidor's feed bin.But stable staff said the plunger contained a liquid that should be lathered over the tongue of the horse to help with its digestive system overnight."After the inspection it was pointed out that instead of having the liquid put on the horse'

21 signs you’re an incurable showing addict

If you live and breathe showing — either to compete or as a spectator — many of the following may well be familiar…1. You think nothing of setting your alarm for 3am in order to get to a show. It’s all worth it for a champion sash.2. Travel time and distance covered are irrelevant factors when you’re chasing a Royal International, Horse of the Year Show and/or Olympia ticket. Devon to Scotland? No problem.3. What do Robert Walker and Jayne Ross et al have that you don’t? This is the million-dollar question you’ve been researching for years.4. Being overtaken during the gallop is a no-no — and doing it in front of the judges should be one of the seven sins.5. Feeling euphoric when the judge nods at you first.6. Holding your breath for the entire time the ride judge assesses your horse.7. Th

Some parents can’t wait for a few days holiday from the children (or their partner...) or a well-earned rest from the office politics, however leaving our horses can bring on countless worries and the not-so-impossible what-ifs. Military operations have been easier to organise… 1. Who is going to look after your four-legged child?If you are at a livery yard then hopefully your horse won’t be thrown too out of their routine with your absence. You leave a big bag of carrots and hope your friend will send you regular photograph updates of your horse’s goings on while you’re gone (you can never have enough photos of your horse eating…)2. But if you keep your horses at home this may take a little more organisingYour adoring non-horsey partner claims they are up to the job. How hard can it be th

charlotte dujardin debuts her new horse pumpkin: is this the next valegro?

The double Olympic champion Charlotte Dujardin has debuted a new horse, Gio, in competition — winning two elementary level tests with high scores on Sunday (26 February) at Hunters EC in Gloucestershire. It was the horse’s first ever show.Charlotte spotted “Pumpkin”, as he is now known at home, when she was teaching a clinic in California in the autumn of 2016. Her pupil Amelie Kovac was riding the then five-year-old by Apache x Tango, and he caught Charlotte’s eye.“He wasn’t even meant to be on the clinic; someone dropped out and Amelie — who was local — came in on him at the end of the day as a replacement,” Charlotte told H&H. “As soon as he came in I thought, ‘Oh my god I love that horse’. Then I saw him trot and canter and I thought, ‘Oh my god, I really love that horse’.“He had this

a fear of blackthorns — and 24 other signs you're addicted to hunting

If your heart sinks as the days get longer and the sight of diamante brings you out in a cold sweat, you may well be addicted to hunting... 1. In autumn you buy a mass of gin and pick as many sloes as you can.2. You are hacking but you still shout ‘gate please!’ when walking through a gateway.3. Never mind Chanel, Gucci or Louboutin it’s all about Patey and Bernard Weatherill.4. Your natural riding seat is feet forward and body slightly behind the vertical.5. Your breeches are a lot more baggy than any competition breeches.6. Any sight of diamante or patent leather brings you out in a cold sweat.7. You don’t care whether your horse is on the bit or what leg it’s on, but it is important that it is still underneath you and enjoying it as much as you are.8. Your idea of a perfect holiday is a

the science of liquorice

Once you’re over the shock of Marmite. Credit: ShutterstockThere are foods that can split families, or even just couples. Love it or hate it foods. Marmite (and the vegetarian alternative, Vegemite) is one. Then there's Brussels sprouts, blue cheese, chilli peppers, coriander (cilantro), tomatoes (especially the cooked variety) … and liquorice.
Personally, I've always liked liquorice, but there are others who feel very differently about it. There are known to be genetic reasons behind a dislike of some foods such as Brussels sprouts or coriander but no one has established this for liquorice.Liquorice has a long history; the root of the plant Glycyrrhiza glabral has been used medicinally for over 4,000 years. Liquorice has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antiviral properties and has

A horse who was once so frightened and erratic he “nearly went to heaven” has come up trumps for Isabell Werth in a World Cup dressage qualifier.The 11-year-old gelding Emilio recorded a score of 84.2% in Gothenburg, Sweden, on Friday (24 February), to take the competition from Swedish runners-up Patrik Kittel and Delauney, on 80.91%.Isabell said the horse lost some confidence in the freestyle, and that she was realised “he needs more training because he didn’t always know what to do and we had two mistakes, in the pirouette and tempi changes”, but that she will also compete him at the final qualifier in the Netherlands in a fortnight’s time.Isabell explained Emilio had “something of a reputation” in his early years.“It was as if he could see something out of the corner of his eye when you

12 reasons why horses are better than cats (just in case you were in any doubt)

Just in case you were in any doubt (or are in need of convincing friends and family who are sceptical about your horsey habits), here are 12 very good reasons why you're better off with a horse rather than a cat... 1. You won’t wake up unable to breathe because your horse has stuck its tail up your nose. We hope not, anyway.2. You don’t have to lift your horse off the sideboard repeatedly when you’re trying to cook, end up shutting it in the living room out of exasperation, and then find the horse has expressed its displeasure by shredding your sofa.3. Your horse won’t leave you “presents” of eviscerated mice and headless birds outside your bedroom door, carefully positioned so they squelch between your bare toes.4. Your horse won’t suddenly take a flying leap on to your shoulder, or try t

dressage rider to jockey in 60 days: 'i need to start doing some cardio work. so

As my horse Morris and I made our way to the Summerhouse British Dressage (BD) regional finals last week, with my friend Ruth and Morris’ ‘girlfriend’ Arietta, Ruth and I discussed the differences between dressage and race riding, of which, there are many. There are the obvious ones, such as my stirrups on my tiny riding out saddle being a quarter of the length of those on my beautiful Bliss Paramour Dressage saddle. Or finding your balance during the sudden burst of power as your horse jumps off at the bottom of the gallops.There are, however, more subtle differences that you only realise exist when you’re required to switch between the two riding styles. In dressage, you encourage the horse to go in ‘self-carriage’. An elastic, independent contact is desirable on a dressage horse and you

fighting antibiotic resistance - india legal

Meat from animals and chickens also contain antibiotics as it is mixed in their feed under the guise of preventing them from falling sick, but the actual goal is to fatten them before slaughter. The Superbugs pass from the animal’s dung and spread through the air, soil, and water into rivers and sewers.Dr Vikram Sarbhai, senior consultant in chest medicine, critical care and sleep medicine at the National Heart Institute, New Delhi told India Legal: “The idea of auditing prescription to regulate use of antibiotics may be wonderful. But the question is how do we ensure compliance? The magnitude of logistics is huge and there is no apparatus to deal with it. India has not yet standardised healthcare and created even minimum standards format. We do not have health records for every individual

top british horse returns to competition after injury break

Gemma Tattersall’s brilliant cross-country horse Arctic Soul is back in action after an injury break.The syndicate-owned retrained racehorse finished fifth in an open intermediate at Tweseldown yesterday (9 March), his first competition since landing third place at the Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials last year.“He came back from Badminton fine, then four days before selection [for the Rio Olympics] a front leg wasn’t quite 100%,” Gemma told H&H. “Within three weeks the scan was clear and the vet said we could crack on and take him to Pau, but he doesn’t owe me anything and we decided to give him some time.”“Spike” had “a nice holiday” in the field with Gemma’s Rio ride Quicklook V and came back into work on 1 December.At Tweseldown he scored 30 in the dressage, before a double jum

william fox-pitt: 17 pearls of jumping wisdom

He has won 14 four-star events, more than 50 three-day events and countless medals for the British eventing team. While attending the British Horse Society's coaching convention, William Fox-Pitt shared his advice and knowledge on training horses and riders for jumping. Here are the highlights...1. A rider should always focus on the individual character of a horse when training — one method does not fit all.2. A horse that is genuine on the flat usually translates through to its rideability and trainability while jumping.3. When training or looking for a horse to jump, you want one that can think for himself, is clever on his feet and is ultimately safe — you want a horse to help you out if you’ve messed things up at a fence.4. It is our job as riders to train a horse to think on his feet,

It requires the following three things as well:1. Maintaining the horse’s rhythm2. Maintaining the horse’s balance3.
