riding for boys

I share Dan Sherriff ’s concerns (comment, p62) about the lack of boys and men continuing up the levels in dressage. This fear can be extended to equestrianism as a whole — according to this year’s British Equestrian Trade Association (BETA) survey, 67% of regular riders in Great Britain are female. Attitudes towards riding differ elsewhere — for example in Spain, as Dan points out, and America, where riding, particularly Western, is seen as a more macho pastime. Conversely, Dan recalls being laughed at at school, having been seen hacking out. Riding is still being pigeon-holed as a “girl’s” sport here, in the way that pink is deemed a girl’s colour — which is in itself baffling. The association is everywhere. The only Lego set featuring horses that I could find…

calls for bitless bridles to be allowed in eventing dressage

THE bitless debate has come up again as a campaigner is calling for riders to be allowed to take part in eventing dressage with nothing in their horses’ mouths. Mark Smith, an eventer and advocate of riding bitless, made a presentation to British Eventing’s (BE) risk and sports committee, asking for the rule allowing bitless bridles in BE showjumping and cross-country to be extended. Mark told H&H he had “bent the rules”, including riding tests with a bit, but with reins attached to the noseband, and with a bit, but behind his horse’s chin. ‘I can’t see the problem’HENRIETTA KNIGHT “It’s crazy I’m allowed to go cross-country and showjumping without a bit but not dressage,” he said. “So it can’t be a safety issue.” Mark believes it is in some horses’ best interests to go…

horses will be able to travel abroad after brexit

THE British Horseracing Authority (BHA) has welcomed the news that UK horses will be able to move to the EU in the event of a no-deal Brexit on 31 October. The EU granted the UK listed status on 11 October after it met required health and biosecurity assurances. BHA executive director Will Lambe said the status provides important certainty. “There will still be additional requirements for [those] wishing to travel a horse into the EU, but full guidance and assistance is available. We continue to support and appreciate the UK government’s position that there will be no immediate change to arrangements... in the event of no deal,” he said. If the UK leaves without a deal, all horses leaving the UK for the EU, including those travelling abroad to compete, will need an equine…

sheep parasite could be a cause of equine liver disease

A COMMON parasite in sheep and cattle could be an under-recognised cause of liver disease in horses, a study by the University of Liverpool has found. Liver fluke costs the UK cattle and sheep industry an estimated £300m annually, and it was previously believed that horses were relatively resistant to infection by the parasite. But research funded by the Animal Welfare Foundation and published in the peer-reviewed Equine Veterinary Journal suggests liver fluke in horses may be responsible for some cases of undiagnosed equine liver disease. Veterinary parasitologist professor Diana Williams of Liverpool University led the study. The team aimed to answer questions including the prevalence of liver fluke infection in the horse population and investigate whether this could be a cause of liver disease. A total of 224 UK horses were examined for…

police educate drivers on how to pass horses

DRIVERS are being educated about passing horses safely in targeted police campaigns thanks to incident statistics. The British Horse Society (BHS) has worked with mounted sections from Police Scotland and Greater Manchester, Isle of Man, Surrey and Gloucestershire, using plainclothes mounted officers to target drivers who pass horses inappropriately. British Horse Society (BHS) safety director Alan Hiscox was in Surrey on 9 October when 22 drivers were stopped. “It’s a great partnership,” he said. “The police stop vehicles that pass inappropriately, they give advice and we show our virtual reality film; it’s good education. Many drivers said it was useful, there was a lot of positivity. “The number of people stopped in Surrey is encouraging in that it’s not sky-high, but it proves that while we are getting the message out, there are still…
