The British Horse Society BHS Calls For Bridleways To Be Opened
The British Horse Society is calling for more rights of way to be opened up in the countryside. The equestrian industry is losing over £100m a month and much of this is directly attributable to the closure of our rights of way
While some local authorities are responding to the government's call to open up the countryside, there are still too many who have not opened rights of way that carry no risk and in some cases are in purely arable land. The BHS urges local authorities to give priority to opening up the few rights of way that are open to horses. A great many people depend for their livelihood on these paths being open, not just for recreation.

8th June 2001 Equestrian Work Provides Funds For Humanitarian Projects In The Mid 90's
Few realize, that when Stephen Apatow, opened his specialized work in biomechanics for veterinary and equestrian applications in Northern Nevada, that this work provided financial resources for the strategic planning and project development of humanitarian initiatives across the United States. After leaving the pursuit of international competition for cross country skiing and rowing and the completion of a Run Across America project in 1993, Apatow found himself in Northern Nevada working with Aimee Fulper, a student at the University of Nevada, Reno, Nevada 4-H Ambassador from 1990-92. This scope of this collaborative effort would encompass the development of projects which would bridge unmet needs to untapped community resources for frontline service programs across the United States and eventual formation of the non-profit organization Humanitarian Resource Institute in 1994.

A Horse, of Course
with Don Blazer
The Fourth of July is the birthday of our nation. It’s the day we declared independence from foreign rule. Yet it was with foreign help that we won our freedom.
And even though historians will say horses played a minor role in the Revolutionary war, others will say, without the horse, our heroes would have lost the war and been hanged as traitors.
A Horse of Course
One thing is for sure, the War of Independence brought us our freedom, and it also brought us the American Cavalry.
The horse soldier came into his own.
Nearly a decade before the Boston Tea Party, events were taking place in Poland which would later have a profound effect on the American War of Independence.
Cassimir Pulaski was in the service of the Duke of Courland in 1768 learning the techniques of riding and cavalry warfare. Meanwhile Cassimir’s father, Joseph Pulaski was bringing men to arms in an effort to keep the Russians from interfering in Polish affairs. The political climate was similar to what was brewing in the American colonies.

Frank Bell The Fine Art of De-spooking
When I first arrived at the Rocky Mountain Training Center in Larkspur, Colorado, I thought I had plenty of experience with spooky horses. Starting the catty Argentine thoroughbreds for polo had certainly been challenging. Even my own Anglo/Arab had left me in the air several times. But nothing prepared me for the lightning speed that typified the Arabians. These horses could flinch sideways or reverse at a dead run. Without a decent seat and balance to match, it would have been a lot of long walks to the barn. It all really hit home while watching a video of the finish of a hundred-mile endurance race. Coming down off the mountain at a moderate pace after a hundred miles I witnessed mature horses still spooking! Then and there I committed to making a project of this phenomenon, common to all and chronic to some.
Self-preservation is clearly the reason for spooking. If we were to take that away, we would be riding very dangerous animals. That self-preservation is what allows us to trust our horses in umpteen dangerous situations. That same horse that spooks also takes us across fields filled with boulders and leg breaking holes. Is it fair to get upset or beat that same animal when he is legitimately afraid? I choose to respect it, once we have built a working rapport.

Catskills Canadian Olympian Eric LaMaze and Millcreek Raphael Win $100,000 Nevele Grande Grand Prix at HITS Catskills II
ELLENVILLE, NY (June 3, 2001)-Canadian Olympic Team member Eric LaMaze of Schomberg, Ontario, riding Millcreek Raphael was the faster of only two double-clears in a field of 45 to win the $100,000 Nevele Grande Grand Prix at HITS Catskills II in Ellenville, New York, today. In a four-horse jump-off, LaMaze was more than two seconds faster than second place Meredith Taylor of Annandale, New Jersey, on Victor owned by Full Cry Farm. Millcreek Raphael took home an engraved silver tray, an embroidered cooler, and $30,000 for owner Millcreek Stable. LaMaze was first in the order and said that he found the course difficult and long, but that he had a definite strategy. "It wouldn't have made a difference to me if I went fortieth or first," said LaMaze. "It was pretty clear once I walked the course. I stuck to my plan and the horse jumped wonderfully. I decided to gamble on a double-clear and see where that got me. I wasn't going for speed, I just wanted a double-clear and let them chase me a little." Buddy Brown of Wellington, Florida, was the course designer.

The $15,000 Open Jumper Prix is held in the Grand Prix Field on Friday each week of the six-event HITS Catskills summer series of horse shows.

3rd June 2001 Whats in the Stars for Your Horse?,
(C) Kim Devries
Just as the Sun is at the centre of our universe, the Sun is the central focus of energy in an equine natal astrology chart. As your horse gains maturity, the energy of the Sun-sign becomes more dominant. This happens, as the Sun sign progressively becomes the synthesis point for the various sides of your horse's personality. The Sun sign represents approximately 70% of the nature your horse's personality. It should, however, be noted that the Sun sign descriptions are of broad personality types. Their accuracy in any given case not only depends on the age of your horse, but also on the overall strength and condition of the Sun, in relation to the natal chart as a whole. This is particularly the case with regard to aspects the Sun forms with other planets in the natal chart.
All of us who are passionate about horses understand that equine personalities are equally as unique and complex as those of our human counterparts are. It is important for us and for our horses that our human and equine personalities are matched in a partnership, so that we can work together for mutual benefit and enjoyment. It is poetry in motion, when human and equine partners trust and respect one another, work together and have fun together. Yet no matter how ideal a relationship may be, there will always be challenges for us to face. If we can embrace these challenges in a positive manner, they give us opportunities for a dynamic and rewarding partnership with our horse. The tool of Astrology can be used to help us make the most of the strengths in our partnership, as well as find positive ways of embracing the challenges.
