CONTACT - Prove the Rein Part 1 by Sophie Warren
Contact is a common word in the equestrian world, and we have all heard it at some stage: but what does it really mean, and why is it such an important consideration for all riders?

EXERCISE UNDER SADDLE
part 2 by Tanja Kraus
These six exercises heighten the horse’s responsiveness to the rider and improve their suppleness and strength to perform better under saddle in any discipline.

PULLING THE MANE
by Nicole Groves
Thinning of the horse’s mane creates a mane that’s a manageable length and thickness for showing and plaiting.

TAILORED TO A PERFECT SILHOUETTE
by Wendy Elks
The revolution in materials and styling of competition wear gives riders every opportunity to dress for success.

HORSE WELFARE

A number of high profile cases, involving many horses, have left the community shocked at the state of the animals involved and asking how could it have happened.

Owners need to recognise the negative outcomes that can result from the way that many horses are being kept.

   
The importance of turn-out for gut health.   making a difference to the quality of feed.   This horse not only survived snake bite but is back winning.

BRUMBIES IN THE NEW AGE
They’re the stuff of legends, roaming over vast tracts of the countryside. How many should be allowed to remain in certain areas is presently under debate.

THE AUSTRALIAN BRUMBY CHALLENGE

IN FRONT OF THE LEG
by Sarah Warne
A term that can leave some riders confused as to what it means and how to achieve it. A prompt and correct response to the aid with the appropriate level of energy is the aim.

THE CENTRE OF THE SADDLE

STIFLE LOCK

by Dr J H Stewart
Equine Veterinarians Australia (EVA)

A horse’s ability to sleep while standing enables it to rest on its feet, ready to flee at a moment’s notice. It involves hooking one of the stifle ligaments over the end of the femur. But, sometimes the ligament won’t unhook, and the joint can remain locked when the horse doesn’t want it to.

Vol 32 - 3 Oct/Nov 2010
COMPETENCE AND CONTROL- showing stallions safely

by Julia McLean
Stallions in the show ring ooze virility and masculinity – they fairly sizzle with life.  However anyone who has spent any amount of time at horse shows will more than likely have had some experience of seeing a problem caused by an unruly or mis-managed stallion.

Vol 27 - 3 Oct/Nov 2005
