Realistic foundations – SEES 2018 Factors affecting performance

    Sarah Logie FWCF When discussing performance we often jump to the conclusion that we are referring to high level athletics. In fact the definition of performance is ‘the action or process of carrying out a task or function’. A horses ‘task’ may vary dramatically from work in hand, to carrying a load, pulling, carrying a potentially unbalanced rider right through to working at the extremes of the equines capability – and no matter where on this scale the task falls the needs of the individual must be considered. All equines have...

Ex Racehorses- The Reality

The Thoroughbred horse was developed in England where it was bred for racing and exported across the world. Thoroughbred horses are so inbred that the pedigree of every horse can be traced back to one of three stallions, Byerley Turk (1680-1696), Darley Arabian (1700-1733) and the Godolphin Arabian (1724-1753), and these are known as the “Foundation sires”. The Introduction to the General Stud Book was published in 1791 recording the pedigree of every Thoroughbred horse and since 1793 Weatherby have recorded the pedigree of every...

Conformation or Posture? – Animals Back 2 Balance

    When equine conformation is discussed, it is often interchanged with the term posture. So in order to identify the difference, the question must be asked – what defines conformation and what defines posture? Conformation refers to the basic physical structure the horse is born with. Posture is how the horse organises itself or stands. The biggest difference between the two is that conformation cannot be changed but posture can. Posture is influenced by many factors including; injury, poor training, hoof imbalances,...

safe care equine hoof oil spray

  This spray on Hoof Oil contains natural coconut oil that absorbs into the hoof quickly for conditioning. This is not an aesthetic oil to give you a show-ready shine, but will soak right in and do its job helping to condition the hoof. You can use this spray on the outer hoof wall, coronet and around the frog too.   RRP Hoof Oil £5.99 750ml–£32.99 5ltr A Conditioning oil for hooves I found this product so easy to use and less messy!

‘A Naughty Horse’

‘A Naughty Horse’

In the 32 years I’ve owned and trained horses I’ve come across lots of ‘naughty horses’ but what is a naughty horse? In my view there is no such thing! Horses know few emotions, mostly love and fear, they don’t choose to misbehave, in my experience there’s always something at the cause of the behaviour. It’s sometimes hard to find the cause and would be far easier if they could talk to us, but listen to your horse – they can only tell you one way and that’s through their actions. Pain can lead to the ‘naughty horse’ which is why it’s so...

Jo gives us a Top Tip #1

  Top training tip #1 We hear people say ‘transitions transitions transitions’ which I absolutely agree with, aim to do at least 150 per training session- this can be transitions within the pace as well as between paces.   However my transition advice is don’t do transitions for the sake of doing them – make sure they are quality and are achieving what you want them to achieve. For example using the half halt to create more engagement, think about your aids and using your body. If you half halt from the rein you will slow the...
