RIDING ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WORLD by Harriet Leahy
Why do many successful Australian eventing riders feel the need to move to the UK? Bill Levett, Mat Ryan and Stephen Way share why the move was the right choice to further their careers.

HELPING HOOVES by Dr Jennifer Stewart
Stable management, nutrition and exercise all play a part in maintaining or creating healthy hooves.

WEIGHT AIDS with the pelvic clock exercise by Wendy Murdoch
Riders can often struggle to apply their weight aids correctly. An adaptation of the Feldenkrais Method® Awareness Through Movement® lesson can improve their accuracy and effectiveness.

PLAITING THE MANE by Nicole Grove
Creating a row of perfect, even and neat plaits is the aim, and, with practice, that winning look can be achieved.

QUICK RELEASE KNOTS by Karrie Louden
It’s one of the first things all horse owners should learn, and with good reason for the horse and handler’s safety, as even the quietest horse can take fright, struggle and cause injury to itself or those around it.

CROOKEDNESS IN HORSES or Common asymmetry by Dr Ian Bidstrup
Riders can spend countless hours exercising their horse to develop symmetrically, however should their focus on creating symmetry start at the time of the horse’s birth? Research is suggesting it should and riders and horses will both benefit from the early intervention.

   
A healthy hoof is the result of many different aspects of management.   Achieving that perfect plait is now possible with Nicole's tips.   When dealing with horses, time just slips away.

RELAXATION AND ENERGY by Sarah Warne
When training the horse, if the rider asks for more impulsion WITHOUT first establishing relaxation then we see a boxing match as the rider attempts to bang and crash their way through a dressage test aboard a ‘stiff plank’.

BONE SCANS (Nuclear Scintigraphy) by Dr Maxwell Hall
A diagnostic tool for locating stress fractures, bone damage and changes, as well as identifying lameness and problem areas.

CONTACT part 2
by Sophie Warren
The issue of pressure and how much is used needs to be considered as it can be a welfare issue and one that could jeopardise the horse’s health and performance.

The Horse-time VORTEX
by Sally Mathews
Interacting with your horse, and fellow passionate horse owners, can take up plenty of time. But that’s a good thing, right?
SUSTAINABILITY FOR COACHES by Anita Marchesani
A new group for coaches aims to provide opportunities for coaches to keep learning too.

Vol 31-6 April May 2010
An INDEPENDENT SEAT

by Jane MYERS

Developing an independent seat involves more than just the rider’s bottom in the saddle – several body parts need to work together – and the first in this three part series begins with the feet, ankles and lower legs.

Vol 35 - 6 April May 14
SELECTING A FLOAT

LATERAL THINKING
with Dr Paul McGreevy
by Amanda Macpherson
Groundbreaking new research (at the time) on the equine population was set to dispel the long-held belief that right or left sidedness was something only seen by humans.

Vol 32 - 2 Aug/Sept 2010
VETTING VIA THE INTERNET
by Tom Moates
The internet can be a valuable tool in gaining information – but how much of this should be taken into account when faced with a sick or injured horse?
"My horse has been down in the pasture for two days, what should I do?" Although a horrifying entry to read, incredibly this is one of the many posts which can be seen on various internet forums.
Most people with horses in their care would know that a horse 'down' is a medical emergency requiring the vet right away to assess the situation - or would they?.
