Air Ambulance Foundation reveals 40 per cent increase in call outs to riding accidents
19 September 2003 – The latest statistics released by the Air Ambulance Foundation (AAF) reveal a significant increase in the number of emergency call-outs requiring assistance from air ambulances. Sporting incidents, in particular horse riding, show the greatest increase overall with call outs to horse-related injuries up by 40 per cent on last year; this represents an additional cost to air ambulances of £120,000 in just six months alone.
The report, which contains information collated from the 15 regional air ambulance services across the UK, shows an overall increase of 16 per cent over the same period in 2002 (January to June). In human terms, this means that an additional 1,000 people – many suffering life-threatening conditions – benefited from the fast and flexible response which has become the trademark of the air ambulance service.
With each air ambulance mission costing £1,000, this has meant that air ambulances have had to find an additional £1 million pounds in the last six months.

All I Want For Christmas Is A Bot-Free Horse
Bots aren't a parasite that necessarily spring to mind when planning your horse's worming programme, however bot infestation can have potentially dangerous results. Bots aren't worms, but the larvae of the horse bot fly, which attach themselves to the abdomen, legs and the throat of grazing horses in late summer. The horse then licks them off and the larvae attach to the stomach lining where they develop into full-grown bots which can cause ulcers in the stomach wall and can occasionally penetrate the wall with fatal results.
A single dose of Vectin, one of the wormers featured in Intervet's 3-year worming plan, should be administered after first frosts have killed adult flies in December. The apple flavoured gel, which contains ivermectin as its active ingredient, is available in an easy-dose syringe and is suitable for use in foals and pregnant mares.

Samsung Super League News : It's Not Over Yet..............
With just four days to go the Final of the first Samsung Super League series in Barcelona it seems that France must be firm favourites to take the title but, after a season full of surprises, can we be so sure?
Who could have predicted at the beginning of the year that the French would be so dominant, with three outright victories and an exceptionally consistent run of form? It is difficult enough to put together a team of horses and riders capable of winning one major championship but, in the space of 12 months, the French are World Champions and European Silver medallists, yet still managed to head the Samsung Super League leaderboard throughout the entire series – their strength in depth is nothing short of remarkable.

The Irish too have been surprisingly effective although they have faltered in the latter stages. They can always be relied upon to put in their very best effort at the most unlikely times and few would have expected them to head the line-up at two of the toughest rounds of the Super League in St Gallen and Aachen. They were snapping at the heels of the French until things went horribly wrong for them at the penultimate leg in Rotterdam but, still in second position and ready to pounce should the long-time leaders find themselves in trouble, they can never be discounted.

The original aim of the competition was to give young riders, who do not own their own horse or pony, the opportunity to compete in a nationwide competition, but with a qualifier for this year in Hong Kong the success of the competition is rapidly growing.
Qualifiers are held at BHS Approved Riding Establishments, and there are two age groups for the competition - 13 years and under and 17 years and under. Competitors are required to complete a short dressage test, a jumping test and a short multiple choice, welfare orientated, question paper, in order to demonstrate not only their riding abilities, but also to ensure they have a basic understanding of horse care and welfare.

Australia - The Fraser Island Wild Horse (brumby) story/campaign
Not to be confused with the Palm Island brumby issue where some brumbies were treated badly by a minority group.
The Queensland Government Department of Environment, under the control of Environment Minister Mr Dean Wells, has illegally removed about eleven brumbies from Fraser Island, off the Queensland coast. A contract was given to Ms Shirley Gott by the Queensland Parks & Wildlife Service (QPWS) to remove these brumbies. The initial information received was that she was going to remove about 6 brumbies for breeding purposes. It was later heard that she had removed eleven brumbies of which some would be used for breeding and some for riding at her riding school, and some for adoption/sale.
After Lyall Sempf had some discussions with a couple of indigenous (aboriginal) elders who have traditional land rights over Fraser Island, it has been confirmed that the original horses brought over to the island belonged to the ancestors of some traditional owners, and that they want the brumbies to remain on the island. There are also aspirations by some indigenous owners to use the brumbies for tourism purposes. Under Native Title Law and Common law, these brumbies actually belong to the ndigenous people, and hence the removal of these brumbies is considered as straight-out daylight theft. The brumby removal issue has caused major upset to traditional owners and the general brumby advocate community, with the indigenous people now taking this issue to the federal court level.

Wellington, Florida – September 15, 2003 – At the urging of equestrians everywhere, the hottest party in Palm Beach County is being resurrected after a four-year hiatus. The party?: The Denim & Diamonds Gala, last held during The 2000 Winter Equestrian Festival in Wellington. Producers and Chairmen, Mason Phelps, Jr. and Beverly Lake Wilkes, who ran Denim & Diamonds each year from the mid- ‘90s through 2000, and who will run the 2004 event, have been inundated over the past few years with a chorus of requests to bring back the extravaganza.
And now, The United States Equestrian Team (the “USET”) has weighed in with its opinion – let’s party! The USET, historically the beneficiary of Denim & Diamonds, will once again be the 2004 beneficiary. During the event’s successful, prior six-year run, over $1 million was raised for the USET. With the upcoming 2004 Olympic Games in the offing, the timing is ideal to bring back this major fund-raiser.

horse The Boulonnais Horse
Boulonnais horses are said to be descended from Numidian horses, brought by J. Caesar to North of France, around Boulogne, in 54 B.C., just when he was planning to invade Britain. But this can be a legend.
The Boulonnais horse is called "the thoroughbred horse among draught horses" because of its great elegance associated with strength.
Energetic and lively, with a splendid gait, adaptated to prestige carriage as well as to every work in the fields and even to riding, the Boulonnais horses were especially appreciated since 17th century for the rapid transport of the fresh fish from the Channel coast to Paris, in less than 24 hours. This is now commemorated every two years in a traditional team race called "La route du poisson" (The Fish Route).

horse More Learning From Horses: Patterns and Habits.
WAVERLY, WV--Horses are creatures of habit. And the habits they learn can be good ones or bad ones depending on who's handling them. And whatever habits or patterns they have when they come to you can be changed if you go about it in a methodical, horse-logical way. If memory serves, one of the horses that taught me this was a Morgan stallion that belonged to a friend of mine. This was back in the '60s and I don't remember the horse's registered name but we called him Little Brother.
