endured enough

THERE was tough talk at the FEI sports forum (news, p8) that gives hope for tackling horse abuse in areas of endurance. We have become too used to the stories that are at best cheating and at worst huge welfare issues. Carl Hester has added his voice to those pushing for change (comment, p64). The latest talks and proposals are being viewed as a last chance for the discipline, which does beg the question, “If all do not comply, what then?” The obvious answer being the FEI cut endurance off. Carl is not alone in hoping that the sport stays within the fold. Outside its jurisdiction, what ethics would prevail — if we can even imagine more horror? On another of Carl’s points this week, I disagree — which is rare — and…

how to cool a horse

DR HALL said one of their focuses is ensuring everyone is “really familiar with cooling best practice”. This includes grooms and riders, as well as Tokyo 2020 organisers to make sure enough water and buckets are in the right place at the right time. BEST PRACTICE ADVICE: • Cover as much of the horse as possible in water. • Start at the head and work backwards. • Work on both sides of the horse — ideally you want a person on each side and someone else to lead. • Wash for 30 seconds, walk him for 30 seconds until he is cooled. • It can take as much as 30 buckets of water and 10-15 minutes to cool an overheated horse. • Only stop cooling when the horse is no longer hot to touch and has stopped blowing.…

police investigate rider sex assault allegations

THE German equestrian federation says it “condemns sexual assault and violence”, as police investigate a number of alleged sexual assaults. No riders have been suspended either by the Deutscher Reiterliche Vereinigung (FN) or the FEI as officers investigate the alleged incidents. It is understood the allegations involve young showjumpers on German teams, who are accused of drunkenly harassing women at international competitions. “We have knowledge of ongoing police investigations against a small number of German riders in the context of (sexual) assaults,” an FN spokesman told H&H, adding that the federation is unaware of specific allegations or the status of the investigation as “police do not release information to our federation”. The spokesman added: “Potential cases of [sexual] assaults must be reported to our federation, so that we are able to take legal action. “We…
