ending flu and fatness

THERE seems to be a feeling the flu crisis was a blip that happened earlier this year, which couldn’t be further from the truth with 37 cases confirmed in the first 15 days of July (news, p10). There was upset this spring when racing was cancelled while the sport put measures in place to prevent the spread, but taking action dealt with their problem. Elsewhere the flu crisis gathers pace and there is inertia — a sense it is someone else’s problem rather than for individuals to take responsibility for vaccinating their horses. As vets remind owners flu is more than “the snots” and capable of inflicting “high levels of suffering”, we see similar being said of equine obesity. Robert Walker (comment, p74) and two top judges (news, p8) have called…

safety is a priority in rule changes

MOVES to make cross-country safer could be ahead as the FEI seeks to make frangible devices mandatory on some jumps. If approved by national federations, this will come into force at four- and five-star events and championships from 2020 and at all FEI levels from 2021. The International Eventing Officials Club (IEOC) and Badminton have backed the call previously and the Eventing Riders Association (ERA) agrees. “ERA supports anything that’s safety driven on the acknowledgement these proposals are put back in front of the experts — the course-designers — for the best application of these suggestions,” ERA president Bruce Haskell told H&H, adding he does not want to see these become an extra form of penalties that would change the nature of the sport. He said the technology is available and ERA strongly encourages…

other changes you need to know about

IRELAND has suggested that penalties should be given at showjumping water jumps if any impression is left on the lath. This can be difficult to judge, as the rule states it is a fault if a foot or a shoe touches the lath, but not if it is a boot or a fetlock. The Irish federation would also like video assistance compulsory for division one Nations Cups and grands prix. “This [current] rule is clearly unworkable as the identification of what exactly touches the lath is to the naked eye problematic and unfair to both the water jump judge and the competitor alike,” states the Irish federation. The FEI has responded to say hawk-eye technology is being used at all 2019 Nations Cup competitions and a decision on the other suggestions will be deferred…

tributes paid as bob the builder steps back

THE showjumping world has paid tribute to Bob Ellis as the legendary course-designer reveals plans to take a step back. The London 2012 Olympic course-designer’s career spans more than four decades, and he has designed tracks at World Cups as well as senior and youth European Championships. Next week will mark a 44th consecutive Royal International Horse Show for the man nicknamed “Bob the Builder”. While he plans to cut back from the end of the year, Bob wants to remain involved with British Showjumping (BS), and will be at Olympia, Windsor, Bolesworth and all three of Hickstead’s major shows in 2020. Hickstead director Lizzie Bunn told H&H Bob has made “an incredible contribution” to showjumping over the years. “We’re delighted he’ll continue to be part of the team at Hickstead in his ‘retirement’,” she…

in brief

SHOCK AFTER TWO RIDER DEATHS THE eventing community is in shock after two rider deaths. A female rider died after a fall at the Solihull Riding Club one-day event on Saturday (13 July), two days after a teenage rider died in the US. British Riding Clubs (BRC) said: “Solihull Riding Club and BRC extend their deepest sympathy to the family of the rider at this tragic time.” The West Midlands Ambulance Service said the rider went into cardiac arrest and CPR was carried out before paramedics took over, but she could not be saved. US rider Ashley Stout, 13, and her horse Avant Garde died after a cross-country accident, believed to be a rotational fall, at Standing Ovation Equestrian Centre in Pennsylvania, on 11 July. A statement from the centre said: “Tonight we mourn an unfathomable…
