good old timers

WITH 18-year-old horses contesting championships and 30-year-olds winning veteran classes, veteran horses are a growing bracket. I presume these horses are carrying on working for longer on account of better breeding, management and veterinary care. It is wonderful to see those like cover star Happy Times — Sam Griffiths’ Badminton and Burghley podium star — enjoying life at a slower pace under a new rider. Plenty more golden oldies have been in the same ownership for decades and due to owners’ diligent care are thriving, some not even yet retired. Given how much can go wrong with any horse, I’m all for celebrating those who are fit as fiddles in their 20s or even 30s — it is quite some achievement and gives hope to anyone with a wonderful equine they hope…

tweaks to weight and rest rules in planned endurance changes

TWEAKS to rider weights, rest periods and rotation of officials are among the latest changes to a new set of endurance rules set to come into force from 2020. Last October, the FEI endurance temporary committee (ETC) was told to take endurance back to its roots of horsemanship and away from the concept of winning at all costs. Harrowing findings of what is happening in parts of the sport were presented at the 2019 FEI sports forum (news, 25 April), where the ETC also put forward 16 recommendations to protect welfare and clean up the sport. These covered areas from increased sanctions for abuse to the length of each loop on rides, limiting numbers in support crews and stricter heart rate parameters and presentation times. A draft of the 2020 rules was released in…

u-turn in medal drop plan after backlash

DRESSAGE riders look set to continue competing for three sets of championship medals after an FEI U-turn as a result of fierce opposition to a suggestion to chop a set of individual medals from 2020 onwards. The FEI’s dressage committee proposed abolishing the medals for the grand prix special. This would bring dressage in line with showjumping and eventing. In the first draft of 2020 rule changes, made public in July, the FEI dressage committee proposed that the team medals remain unchanged, while the special would serve as a qualifier for the freestyle, where the individual medals would be decided. Currently, there are separate medals for the special and the freestyle. The proposals would not affect next year’s Olympics, which has its own set of rules and one set of individual medals. FEEDBACK THE idea…

horses in the news

MAGICAL The 2019 Champion Stakes winner has been retired to stud, where she will be covered by No Nay Never. The four-year-old was due to head to the Breeders’ Cup meeting, but was scratched owing to a temperature. HELLO SHELBY The 10-year-old gelding helped Scott Brash secure back-to-back victories in the 1.60m Equita Masters class at the Lyon CSI5* leg of the World Cup series.

changes to be made to cope with tokyo heat

“ALL possibilities must be explored” in mitigating conditions at the 2020 Olympics, an FEI-commissioned concludes. A major study conducted at the test event in August found horses “generally coped extremely well” with the travel and weather, but were working at “close to maximal capacity” on cross-country day. The research, led by climate expert David Marlin, collected data on the effects of the journey, time zones and climate. It found “severe” heat and humidity, and a steep climb and sharp turns on the cross-country, were challenging for horses. The report states: “All possibilities must be explored to mitigate the effects of the likely conditions.” It has been agreed that the cross-country should start earlier — 7.30am or 8am — while the track has also been re-evaluated. Dr Marlin told H&H the report is a “very positive move”. “The…
