The British Horse Society Bill To Amend The Animal Health Act 1981
Joint statement from the British Horse Society and British Equine Veterinary Association
After consultations with DEFRA, the BHS and BEVA are agreed that the provisions of this Bill should not alarm horse (pony, donkey, ass and mule) owners.
Taken out of context and read in isolation, the Bill to amend the Animal Act 1981, may well give rise to misunderstandings and interpretations. However, it should be read together with not only the guidance notes but also the original Animal Health Act 1981.
The main purpose of this Bill is to provide additional powers to deal with Foot and Mouth Disease (FMD) and transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSE) in sheep. The Bill also makes a number of amendments to the enforcement provisions of the Animal Health Act 1981.

Paramount Learns To Give It Up . . . Again
My neighbor Paula Kane called last May with a definite strain in her voice. "You know my big grey thoroughbred Paramount," she asked me? "Couldn’t miss him Paula. Big as a house. Sure I know the horse," I replied. "Well the last three or four shoeings have been a nightmare. And it’s getting worse even with tranquilizers. It’s to the point of sweating and swearing. I’m afraid I’ll lose my farrier or he’ll hurt the horse. Do you think you can help me Frank," she pleaded? "
Paramount was a massive twenty year old light grey, almost white, raw-boned thoroughbred. I’d met him a couple of years earlier when I’d first met my neighbors Jeff and Paula Kane. He’d raced as a youngster, then jumped big jumps for some years and was now relaxing in the twilight of his life. He’d seemed pretty checked out to me, not a real people horse. I was a little concerned about this foothandling issue, as I wasn’t confident I could get through to him on my level, which places great importance in bonding first, then working on his issues.

One of the most common complaints among horse owners is their inability to find a "good" farrier. They charge too much, are always late or breaking appointments, and don't listen to you when you tell them what you want are many of the objections to their talent or behavior. Those of us happy with our farriers keep quiet for fear that if he gets too many new clients we will lose him.
Unfortunately not enough horse owners really understand what constitutes a good farrier, how to find him or how to keep him. And believe me, if you find a truly good farrier you will want to keep him. With some careful thought and consideration every one of us can find a farrier we can work with and will contribute to the well-being or our horses.
Most of us have heard the old axiom, "No foot, no horse." But despite how much biotin we supplement into the animal's feed or how religious we are about applying the hoof dressings, if the foot is not balanced and trimmed properly for the horse's conformation, the rest is inadequate. This is why a knowledgeable farrier is so essential to your horse's performance and comfort. Not enough of us, though, give this professional his due.

Rein-Aid Productions
The Rein-Aid® is a clear winner when it comes to improving the horses acceptance to the bit. Used for riding, longlining and lunging, Rein-Aid® focuses on an elastic contact with the horses mouth, similar to that achieved through education by World Class riders.
Not to be confused with imitations which lack the 'loop' that limits the stretch, the elastic 'warns' the horse that more pressure will follow immediately if they do not respond correctly to the bit. Horses quickly learn that it is more comfortable to yield to a soft elastic aid than the fixed, solid rein which follows. This interaction between the elastic and loop keeps the connection to the bit kind yet effective, allowing the rider to enhance their communication without resistance from the horse.

Irish Draught Does First Hunter Class
11/3/01 Albuquerque New Mexico, America's most popular Irish Draught Stallion took another step in proving why he is being considered the most versatile Irish Draught Stallion in the world. At the encouragement of one of America's most successful show jumping riders, Rob Gage, O'Leary's Irish Diamond was entered in the year end hunter jumper show in Albuquerque NM. Though, he has great dressage gaits, not preferred for hunter competition, the Irish stallion impressed the hunter judges with his jumping technique and his famous disposition. Irish was a late entry after Gage talked the owner of the stallion to take him to the show for some training over the jump courses.
Gage said the exposure to the flowers and other colorful obstacles would be good for the stallion, strictly a dressage competitor for the last three years. Gage was so impressed during a training session that he lobbied to have Irish entered in a pre green class. The stallion got a third place ribbon, but more importantly his jumping style and ease with lead changes impressed judges and unlookers. Once again the most heard question was "what breed is he?"

At Ground Level
© Equine Management, Auction, and Appraisal Services, Inc
A common complaint among horse owners and their professional caregivers is a lack of ground manners. The animal may refuse to stand still, resist having his feet handled, pull away from or crowd his handler when led, or any number of other misbehaviors. His lack of ground manners may be a mild nuisance or verging on the dangerous; regardless, it detracts from the pleasure of working with him, perhaps even his companionship. However, by establishing limits that the horse knows and follows, he can once again or finally become a well-mannered horse that everyone enjoys.
Most problems that arise on the ground are usually based on a lack of training; the handler failed to teach acceptable behavior. It is easier, though, to get angry and believe the horse is being deliberately disobedient instead of taking responsibility for the holes left in the animal's training. To correct this trend, step out of the saddle and spend some time working on the lessons of the ground.

5th Nov. 2001 Running Effective Meetings
What? Another meeting? Let's face it. Meetings are not always fun, effective or productive. Yet some meetings leave you abuzz when they close. You're informed, energized, motivated, spurred into action. If only all meetings could go this way. It requires thought and skill to run a good meeting. Whether you coach students, have horse business employees, participate as part of a volunteer activity, or meet with your professional horse association, you can develop and add to your meeting facilitation skills. Let's take a look at the basics of running meetings that sizzle rather than sag.
First, determine what you are looking for as your meeting outcomes. Do you want decisions made? Are you looking for shared information? Or will you be looking for both?

Feeding Right
© Equine Management, Auction, and Appraisal Services, Inc
With the advent of commercial feeds and complete rations available through most tack stores and feed mills, designing a balanced ration for your horse need not be a time-consuming or difficult chore. With a basic understanding of the nutrients required by every horse, the different sources for nutrition and what your horse's stage of life is and his amount of work, each owner can confidently maintain good health.
All horses require the six basic nutrients: carbohydrates, fats, protein, vitamins, minerals and water. Carbohydrates and fat provide the majority of energy to the horse; they are supplied mostly through concentrates. Protein is the building block for the horse, used to form muscle, hormones, hoof and hair, among other tissues. The horse requires vitamins in very small amounts to help as catalysts that prompt reactions in the body tissues. The fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E, and K) are synthesized by the horse, while the water-soluble ones (B-complex and C) must be found in the diet. Minerals are required in varying amounts and are in three categories: major, macro and trace. Since they are found in the soil, different regions of the country have different dietary mineral requirements. Water is a crucial nutrient that must always be provided by a fresh and clean source. Requirements vary by environment, feed and work.
