responsibility

WORLD HORSE WELFARE held their annual conference last week and asked the question, “Who is responsible?” with regards to equine welfare. The forum encourages open debate, allowing for differences of opinion within the equestrian world to be respectfully heard. It was noted that the gap between the percentage of people in favour or against horses being used for sport and leisure is shrinking (news, p4). This needs to be addressed. Not only is it vital we take every step to eliminate unethical practices from equestrianism, we must then portray all the good that remains in such a way that the public sees horse sport as beneficial to both equines and humans. We can agree doping is not a good thing, beating a horse is not a good thing, starving a horse or…

how changing bridle pressure can affect horses’ movement

REDUCING the pressure and force exerted on horses’ heads by bridles can lead to improved gait, including increased limb flexion and movement, a study has found. Rachel Murray of Rossdales presented the research, published in the Journal of Equine Veterinary Science, at the World Horse Welfare conference on 13 November. She told guests while saddles are usually “carefully fitted and measured”, the bridle is “often forgotten”, despite the presence of important structures in the head. “Lots of concerns have been raised on social media and other places, in relation to parts of the bridle, in particular nosebands and bits,” she said. “Some of this research is well supported; other parts, or things used or put across on social media, there’s less evidence for.” Dr Murray said there has been little discussion on bridles. The researchers used…

working together so equestrian sports can thrive

THE equestrian industry must work together to ensure our sports thrive under increased scrutiny. Annamarie Phelps, chair of the British Horseracing Authority (BHA), addressed the World Horse Welfare conference on 13 November. She spoke of racing’s, and horse sport’s, need to maintain its social licence to operate, and to not only ensure welfare is the top priority, but to communicate this. “If we could talk about our horses with the same exuberance as a young Enable [running], that would be a good start,” she said. “But we want to go further, to quantify the benefits to horses’ wellbeing. We’ve commissioned a project to develop a welfare and wellbeing assessment, trying to identify factors that contribute most to quality of life.” Ms Phelps said talking about horse welfare is difficult, and that failure to connect with…

who is responsible in our industry?

THE role of elite riders, social media, vaccinating against equine flu and the media were among the topics covered by a varied panel at the World Horse Welfare conference on 13 November. Showjumper Joe Stockdale, Royal Veterinary College lecturer Madeleine Campbell, BBC racing journalist Joe Wilson, New Forest commoner Lyndsey Stride and vet Julie Ross, a World Horse Welfare trustee, joined broadcaster Mike Cattermole to discuss “a responsible approach”, fitting the event’s theme: “Who is responsible?” The first topic was on the role elite riders have in promoting appropriate training methods. Joe Stockdale said top riders can have a huge impact as their opinion is highly valued. “Especially now with social media, there’s a lot more opportunity to get information across, but that comes with dangers,” he said. “The main point is the clarity…

horses in the news

TIGER ROLL The double Grand National winner has had to have a chip removed from a joint. Gigginstown’s history-making nine-year-old, trained by Gordon Elliott, has been ruled out from racing until February at the earliest. ARGENTINUS The eventer, owned by Lottie Wemyss and ridden by Italy’s Vittoria Panizzon, has been put down following a field accident. The 14-year-old had top-10 international results and competed at the Nations Cup leg in September. ENABLE The John Gosden-trained five-year-old was crowned Cartier horse of the year for a second time. Owned by Prince Khalid Abdullah, she added three further Group One victories to her impressive CV in 2019. LOT 560 The half-brother to 10-time Grade One winner Altior sold for €155,000 (£132,401) at Tattersalls Ireland’s November National Hunt sale. He was bred by Paddy Behan Jr and bought by Kevin…

new drop-down eventing rule is hailed a success

A RULE that made eventers who repeatedly ran into cross-country trouble drop down a level or have training has been hailed a success. The “continuing performance requirements” (CPR) rule was triggered 189 times this season. British Eventing (BE) found it helped riders reflect on and improve performance, and that it highlighted how BE can give better support when it is needed. “In 2019, of 11,187 horses who ran across country twice, 189, 1.7%, triggered the rule,” BE chief sport officer Paul Graham told H&H. “Based on previous experience and the data, I think it’s fair to say in the early part of the year, with it being a new rule, people weren’t necessarily as tuned in to it. By the end of the year, it was pleasing that by the time we contacted…
