knowing the costs

BECAUSE I’m prone to catastrophising, I’ve wondered from time to time whether I would put my horse through colic surgery. The imaginary punchline has changed as the horses have got older. Recent research looking at the approximate costs of treating a horse with colic either medically or surgically, with different outcomes, is genuinely useful (news, p8). What would be equally useful for owners to understand is the impact of recovery following surgery — and whether this differs depending on the age of the horse. If a horse is otherwise fit and well and has many years of enjoyment ahead of it, the cost of surgery can be weighed against those years that remain. Similarly, whether a horse is in his teens or 20s, the benefit differs in terms of what life…

mental health help in memory of rider

THE first mental health first-aid training sessions funded in memory of a teenager who took his own life have taken place. Tim Jones, 17, was a talented young event and work rider. He qualified for Badminton’s grassroots championships this year and was part of trainer Mickey Hammond’s team. Tim’s family has raised £15,000, which is being put towards training those working in the equestrian and racing industries in mental health first aid, in memory of their son. His father Simon told H&H they want to help people know what to do and say if they notice something wrong with a friend. “There’s a lot of mental health awareness; we’re trying to take that in a slightly different way,” he said. “When it all happened it was a complete shock to us. There was nothing…

work-life balance is key to success in the sport

WORK-LIFE balance and looking after employees is key to retaining staff, as well as boosting results, leading figures agree. National Association of Racing Staff (NAORS) CEO George McGrath said tradition is no excuse for a lack of time off, at the organisation’s AGM. “If you want tradition, go and watch black and white television. Why does the industry still insist on having 1.5 days off a fortnight? It has to learn to change and tradition for tradition’s sake is not a good argument,” he told H&H. “Work-life balance isn’t good enough [in many cases] to retain and recruit in today’s society.” He added improvements have been made, stressing that many trainers are good employers who recognise the issue, but there is still work to be done. Mr McGrath also said racing is learning to “upskill”…

the costs and cover you face with cases of colic

OWNERS should be more aware of the varying costs of colic treatment and read insurance policies thoroughly to make informed decisions, research indicates. A study of insurance policies and the costs of referral treatment of equine colic, by Sarah Freeman and Isobel Barker of the University of Nottingham, found costs varied significantly, and the cost of surgery exceeded maximum cover in four out of five insurance policies reviewed. Data on 59 horses from nine equine hospitals was studied for four outcomes of colic: euthanasia, surgery and euthanasia, surgical treatment, and medical treatment. The cost of surgical treatment ranged from £3,178 to £9,100, the costs of medical treatment £554 to £3,821. Cases euthanised during or after the first surgical intervention ranged from £1,579 to £10,301. Sarah Freeman, professor of veterinary surgery at the school…
