HOW TO ENSURE YOUR HORSE IS COMFORTABLE UNDER SADDLE. The AMS® System utilises a special neoprene layer which provides a soft consistent layer to support the rider’s weight on the back of the horse. This layer absorbs impact and distributes pressure evenly allowing for comfort plus optimal movement for your horse. Saddles with AMS® panels can be re-flocked and fitted to your horse, just like a traditional wool flocked saddle. The distribution of weight with the AMS® System allows for the physiological requirements of the equine athlete. AMS System is found in the PDS Carl Hester and Pessoa range, and in many Trainer's saddles. Special neoprene layer, evenly distributes pressure

FAST QUESTIONS WITH
Simone Pearce is an Australian dressage rider and trainer at Sprehe in Germany, she is currently riding in the PDS Grande Mono Flap. What do you enjoy about riding in Autumn? Autumn is always a lovely time to ride, the days are crisp, but the sun is still out and you can ride outside from the foggy morning to the beautiful early evening burning sunset. For me it's a time reflect on the summers competitions and set new training goals for the winter ahead. What's the best thing about living and competing overseas? I love having the opportunity to compare myself with the best in the world. Having the opportunity to compete at some of the biggest shows in Europe provides both inspiration and motivation to continue to develop and grow. What's your next goal? I don't have one specific goal that I'm aiming towards. But I am hoping to continuing producing horses successfully towards world-class quality Grand Prix. I am very enthusiastic to see how Millennium and Bernay develop on the coming season and perhaps set some big goals for 2020. Where do you see yourself in 5 years? In 5 years I hope to be successfully running my own business, with the focus on producing top quality international horses from youngsters through to Grand Prix. I would love to have the opportunity to have a long term partnership with some horses which could see me on the Australian team for some of the big championships. On a personal level it's very important for me to have the opportunity to spend more time in Australia with my loved ones. So I would love to integrate that into my future. Photo Credit: Mia Bach

Shock-Absorbing Material Elastic Membranes
Welcome to our Saddleworld Product Guide Autumn & Winter, 2019 Edition. It's a great time to focus on your horse's health. We have a huge range of health items to find out about in this edition, from worming with Virbac to nutrition with Kohnke's Own.
X-Technology allows more refined panels bringing the rider into closer contact with the horse, in the most favourable way. Elastic membranes support the riders seat bones, offering unparalleled contouring to the ridersâ€™ anatomy to alleviate pressure on seat bones.
The Prestige Tree, was purpose designed to provide the same elasticity as a tree made of wood, while at the same time, eliminating the negative attributes associated with a wooden tree.

Ever committed to ongoing product development, Prestige Italia offers advanced leather finishes in tobacco or black. LUX leather has the softness of calfskin leather but with increased durability for Australian conditions.
Panels flocked with a special synthetic fibre that prevents compression of the material and therefore requires less maintenance. They also offer more options: Panels +1 cm/+2 cm at the back or with half stuffing.

The Prestige X-Advanced is a single flap saddle designed and devised for Cross Country riding. The saddle offers the rider maximum freedom of movement throughout the entire time they are airborne when jumping. The cantle is never a bother to rider when they return to the ground. The saddle offers an excellent contact between rider and horse thanks to its narrow twist. The front rolls are anatomically shaped and located on the panels, providing riders with ideal support and the maximum safety. We placed Damask leather inserts on the rear part, on the stirrup leather keeper on the flaps, and on the panels’ channel, giving the product a unique and charming look.

One thing is sure, Megan’s commitment to a goal is unrivalled and that’s what makes her the athlete she is today. “That little 10 year old girl who was always looking towards the future and who never seemed to look back. I don’t want to let her down,” Megan says. “The Prestige X-Advanced Jump saddle is amazing. First off it’s so, so light. The technology behind this saddle is incredible. It’s so balanced on any horse and as soon as you sit in it you feel at home. The horses jump better in it because you feel so balanced and your weight is in all the right places.”

X-Breath Dressage The striking feature of this product is the large opening in the seat. It is an oval hole located in the centre of the seat with the aim to both guarantee ventilation, resulting in a better air circulation, so cooling both horse and rider; and to promote the health of the rider, as the opening is anatomically shaped to relieve pressure on the coccyx. The opening is covered with a special ultra elastic 3D material that increases the comfort of the seat. The saddle presents holes and openings on flaps and under flaps with the aim to lighten and improve ventilation. The rear girth straps come in the shape of a “V” for more balance on the back of the horse.

NCE A PASSION IS IGNITED IT’S IMPOSSIBLE TO EXTINGUISH. SARAH CORR HAS MORE THAN A LOVE FOR A DISCIPLINE, IT’S ABOUT THE FUNDAMENTAL CONNECTION BETWEEN HORSE AND RIDER. THIS IS WHAT HAS PROPELLED HER TO BECOME A CC1* EVENTER, COACH, STUD BREEDER AND THE 2018 SADDLEWORLD AMBASSADOR OF THE YEAR. Currently based in Tamborine, Queensland, at her Irish Draught and Sport Horse Stud, Cushavon Park, Sarah’s love for the industry is contagious. It’s easy to see the passion in Sarah’s eyes when she talks about her horses, “I love spending the time with my horses developing their potential and seeing them try really hard for you as young horses and carry that through into confident star horses.” Sarah has always been a rider; however it wasn’t until she left school and trained with Lea Bierman at Gatton College that she found a real passion for training horses. Finding confidence is all about practice for Sarah and this idea translates when coaching her students with lots of positivity. “Practice is the key to everything. Practice gives you confidence. Whether it’s jumping into a water jump for the first time or moving up from prelim to pre-novice. If you know you have put the work in it will always work out in the end,” Sarah says. When not riding, Sarah often finds herself helping run events for the eventing community with an understanding that it takes a village to run an event. The next goal for Sarah is starting her young stallion’s competition career, Cushavon Kalin Ri. The Irish Sport horse breed is well known from their brave character and hardworking attitude and this is what Sarah finds endearing about these athletes. Sarah’s advice for every rider is to “find a really great coach who has confidence in you and surround yourself with positive people who give good sound advice especially on those “big days” when you need a helping hand.” “My confidence in the Prestige brand came from my wonderful sponsors Shire Saddleworld and excellent saddle fitter Ezra. They always suggest products which will work for me and my horses and they were one hundred percent right with the X-Prestige Helen K. I believe confidence in a saddle comes from a really good position which has been achieved for me in my current Prestige saddle.” “I’m really impressed with the position the X-Prestige Helen K puts me in. With the deeper seat and mono flap it allows a great connection with my horses. It is very comfortable, and the seat is soft. What I love most about it is the way my horses move in it. It allows the horses shoulder to move freely and I can sit without restricting the movement of the horses back.”
PDS Carl Hester
The knee block on the saddle is there to support the front of your leg, if for a moment you lose some balance that knee block has to keep you in the right place. Carl Hester MBE
Why choose the PDS Carl Hester Collection? Perfect union between horse and rider. Rider and horse immediately feel as one. Carbon fibre unbreakable tree. Speciality foam and flock panel for maximum comfort and weight distribution. Maximum adjustability on site through an adjustable tree and flocked panel design. Anatomically designed knee blocks to support riders, encouraging them to lengthen their thigh. Premium quality double stitched calf leather. All saddles feature identical girthing options without point straps, allowing maximum freedom of movement through the shoulder.
NEW Delicato Monoflap What makes it different? The PDS Delicato is very similar to the PDS Valegro, the main difference is the cantle. The cantle has been crafted in a more rounded shape. The saddle has also been created for a wider shaped horse.
The PDS Delicato
Leather: Double European Colours: Black or Brown. Sizes: 17”, 17½” or 18”. Warranty: Carbon Fibre Tree - 20 years. Code: RDS920XXX Black
The PDS Delicato is a beautiful edition to the PDS Carl Hester Collection. The saddle brings the rider’s lower leg closer to the horse as the saddle does not have a front gusset. The saddle is crafted for those with narrow hips without compromising comfort for the horse. As with all PDS Carl Hester Collection saddles the soft panelling creates very close contact and absorbs the movement of the horse. “In actual fact Delicato himself has a very wide rib cage, it was very difficult especially because I’m quite narrow to actually feel that I could sit comfortably on him. This saddle immediately had the effect of bringing me closer to the horse which is very important,” Carl Hester MBE.
The Game Changer
PDS Carl Hester
Susan Elekessy is a Grand Prix rider and trainer and has coached to Australian representative level and is the manager of Callum Park Equestrian. The stud breeds, handles, starts and trains top quality, great natured horses for the job, and most importantly they do their best to give the horses the best opportunity to shine and have the best life possible. “As we have lots of different horses from Australian National Champion Pony Miss Divine M, a typical round backed low withered shortie, right through to 17 hand huge withered Don Rubin, I'm really pleased that the PDS Carl Hester Collection can cater to all of them.” “Like many riders I struggled for a long time to find the right saddle, believing that the best you could get was that it would fit either you or the horse. That was until a few years ago, when I was asked by our local Saddleworld if I'd like to trial a saddle I might like. Well from the first ride it was clear I had to make an awkward phone call. "You're not getting this saddle back! I've got Nationals in a week and I can't go without it!" “In combination with a sound health and nutrition regime, a quality management and fitness program, and the hopefully the best training and riding we can do, plus of course the hard work and long hours that come with the territory, these saddles have been a game changer for us.” Susan Elekessy

More than just dressage, the show solution as well. “My PDS Grande Monoflap has travelled all over Australia with my horse Dicavalli Royal Rory, and helped us win at every major Royal Show across Australia, multiple Horse and Rider of the Year titles as well as being the 2017 Champion and the 2018 runner up Australian National Champion Small Show Hunter hack, and the dual winner of the National Champion Child's Small Hunter hack. The PDS Grande Mono Flap saddle has been the best purchase I have made - I struggled to find a saddle that would fit my very wide, and continuously growing Warmblood, who has a very flat wither. I tried over 20 saddles before Saddleworld helped me find the PDS Grande and I absolutely love the feel of the monoflap on the horse. The PDS ensures a secure seat, whilst still allowing flexibility and movement of the rider as needed to get the best out of the horse, and I have found that the difference in my horses movement through the shoulder was incredible. I highly recommend this saddle, it’s perfect for training, for top level showing and finishes off the perfect look we are after, whilst providing the support and comfort needed to perform at our best,” Abbey Lovell

The leather is very good quality, I find the Pessoa XP3 very supportive for all aspects of jumping and especially when galloping in the cross country phase. The Pessoa XP3 helps to stabilise the lower leg with the supportive knee rolls, Stacey Halstead I just love using my Pessoa XP3!
My Pessoa Gen-X is one of the nicest jumping saddles I have ridden in. The seat gives me great confidence over the fences and the contour of the saddle for my horse’s comfort is excellent, it fits him beautifully! The finish of the saddle is to an extremely high standard, and it is an absolute pleasure to own! Laura Benson

Why Use A Pessoa Training System? For the development of back muscles. Using the Pessoa Training Aid, the back muscles are encouraged to work firstly in the low position, developing muscle at the base of the neck, and subsequently in the high position, whichis similar to that of a ridden horse. Balance Used correctly, it can be an excellent tool for helping horses to find their own balance. When cantering, the Pessoa Training Aid encourages the horse to take the weight off the forehand and bring their hindquarters underneath them, thus improving their balance.

Helmets Why Do You Need a NEW Helmet? Saddleworld is dedicated to supporting all Australian equestrians with quality products to chase their dreams. Our commitment to safety with our helmets is no different, we want every rider to enjoy a safe and wonderful experience when riding. We strongly believe in the use of helmets as too many lives are impacted on due to this simple but crucial safety measure being overlooked.
Did you know? Your helmet must fit correctly (not too loose or too tight) and the chin strap fastened to provide protection.
Helmets need replacing every 5 years. Even after a minor fall/accident it is recommended you purchase a new helmet. Helmet damage is not always visible, it’s better to be safe than sorry. Make sure your helmet is approved under the current safety standards.

Why Clip Your Horse? Clipping your horse may be a great option in winter for the horse in work. A shorter coat will dry faster after exercise preventing the horse from becoming too cold if the long coat remains damp. Plus it makes grooming much easier! If you choose to clip your horse be sure to adequately rug to make up for the lost coat.

Horse Health Autumn & Winter Horse Health
All natural sea minerals
The weather is cooling down so it’s important to provide a little extra care to your horse. We have listed tips for the cooler months below:
Lick BLOCKS & NEW
1. Just like people, horses burn calories keeping warm so it’s important to ensure your horse has lots of feed, remember winter pasture does not always contain enough nutrients. 2. Your horse needs to be given the best chance to thrive in cooler months and this is where a horse dentist is vital. 3. Horses may also need extra hydration due to the lack of moisture in hay which may be fed as roughage. 4. A great fitting quality rug such as our Eurohunter range is also important to maintain condition on your horse as body fat can be lost through trying to keep warm. 5. Along with a great rug don’t forget the importance of shelter from the harsh autumn and winter weather. 6. Before you ride always take a little extra time to warm up your horse to avoid injuries, horses are just like humans in winter. 7. Hoof care is really important in the colder months for horses as the extra moisture from winter rain can cause bacterial infections.

THE DEVELOPMENT OF WORM RESISTANCE
A horse is dewormed
If some worms survive the treatment they may be resistant to the chosen wormer.
Those worms reproduce resulting in pasture contamination with resistant worms.
The horse eats a mixture of resistant and susceptible worms.
With continual treatment with the same family of wormer the numbers of resistant worms will increase.
The wormer fails as resistance levels increase. KEY: Resistent Worms
WHAT IS RESISTANCE? RESISTANCE IS THE ABILITY OF WORMS IN A POPULATION TO SURVIVE TREATMENTS THAT HAVE GENERALLY BEEN EFFECTIVE AGAINST THE SAME SPECIES AND STAGE OF INFECTION. When worms develop resistance to one type of wormer they are normally found to be resistant to other wormers of the same type or family. For example, if worms became resistant to moxidectin there is a very high likelihood that they would also be resistant to ivermectin and abamectin. FACTORS AFFECTING RESISTANCE Several factors can influence how quickly resistance to a particular anthelmintic will develop. 1. Frequency of worming treatment High frequency dosing is an important risk of selection for resistance. 2. Dosing and efficacy of treatment Under-dosing or using an ineffective anthelmintic will increase the development of resistance.
3. Refugia population (In refugia) literally means ‘taking refuge’ or ‘hiding’ and refers to the population of worms not exposed to or affected by treatment. The larger the refugia population the slower resistance will develop. 4. Overgrazing and overstocking This can contribute to an increase in the number of resistant worms on a property. Too frequent use of chemicals when not needed and underdosage of chemicals are the major ways that worm resistance to chemicals is being increased. Resistance tends to occur first in the worm species that is the hardest for a particular chemical to control e.g. roundworm resistance to mectin chemicals.
Worms in refugia remain susceptible to a worming treatment. This means that the higher the proportion of worms in refugia is, the more slowly resistance will develop. To maximise refugia of susceptible worms a Gold Standard approach to worming is needed where horses that do not need treatment are not wormed as frequently. To do this faecal egg count testing is required. Pasture management practices can have an impact on this as well, for example if grass is scarce or paddocks are overstocked, horses are forced to graze close to their manure and therefore consume more larvae. In this way overgrazing and overstocking can cause a rapid increase of resistant worms in the horse. Other factors such as length of parasite lifecycle, their egg production capabilities as well as a horse’s immunity levels can influence resistance to anthelmintics.
Worming too frequently will ensure only resistant worms survive, as the most susceptible worms are killed, leaving the resistant worms to reproduce. Under-dosing is most commonly caused by incorrect weight estimation, incorrect method of administration, spitting out of the product and splitting of doses between horses.

KER Bio-Bloom® HF - Research Proven to Improve Hoof Health Understanding the impact of nutrition on hoof health, requires knowledge of hoof wall growth. Hoof growth is dynamic with the hoof wall constantly growing, producing new cells and re-modelling tissue from the inside out. Understanding how diﬀerent nutrients contribute to hoof growth, and how balancing and formulating diets to supply adequate levels of these nutrients, is critical in hoof care. It is important to remember that overfeeding a single nutrient can be as detrimental as underfeeding so make sure you have your current ration analysed before rushing out to by one of the many hoof care supplements on the market. Adding additional minerals to a diet that is already balanced is not going to automatically result in any dramatic increase in quality or growth of the hoof. The time required to replace the entire hoof wall from coronet band to toe is typically nine to twelve months. Hoof strength begins at a cellular level. Flexibility and strength rely on proper synthesis and organisation of proteins and lipids lying within and between the cells. Therefore, providing optimal cell nutrition is critical for building strong, functional hooves. Providing essential hoof building nutrients is important for the maintenance of healthy hooves in everyday horses, but is critical where hoof damage has occurred through injury or laminitis.
Improved hoof wall integrity and increased hoof growth helps to avoid issues such as vertical cracks. - Image courtesy of Zinpro Corp”
Methionine is also used to synthesise cysteine; another amino acid involved in the production of keratin. Deﬁciencies of essential amino acids, especially lysine, methionine or threonine can be detrimental to the strength and integrity of the hoof. Equally, feeding excessive amounts of speciﬁc amino acids disrupts the total amino acid balance. Minerals: Remember the health of the foot is an extension of the health of the horse and if mineral deﬁciencies compromise horse health in general, then the health of the foot is going to be negatively impacted as well. The addition of any individual minerals or commercial supplements into a ration that is not meeting daily nutrient requirements, will not be as eﬀective as they would be added to a balanced diet meeting the horse’s daily requirement. Supplements that include a combination of biotin, zinc and methionine work better than just biotin or zinc alone.
Protein: Protein is the main component of the hoof, making up about 93% of the hoof wall (on a dry matter basis). While protein, in the form of keratin, is the ﬁnal product; it is the individual building blocks making up keratin that are important in the diet.
Biotin: Biotin plays an important role in cell to cell adhesion and therefore strengthens the hoof wall when supplied in adequate quantities. Horses which are not provided with adequate biotin in their diet, may show signs of poorer hoof wall quality, ﬂaky, chipped or brittle hooves.
Methionine: One of the essential building blocks for the production of keratin and correct growth of hooves is the amino acid methionine. However, methionine is not the only important amino acid.
Studies have shown that supplementing with biotin can have a positive eﬀect on the histological characteristics of the hoof wall as well as decrease the incidence and severity of hoof horn
Zinc: Zinc is involved in the health and integrity of the skin, hair and hooves. Zinc is also important in the synthesis of collagen, keratin and in intercellular cementing substance (lipoproteins) as well as immunity and antioxidant activity that protects cell membranes from damage. In the hoof wall, zinc concentration is higher than other trace minerals. Adding additional zinc to a diet that is already adequate in zinc is not going to automatically result in any dramatic increases in the quality or growth of the hoof. Organic zinc is considered more bioavailable and should be the form of choice in a hoof supplement. Zinpro Performance Minerals® organic zinc has been shown to enhance hoof growth and is the source of zinc used in KER BioBloom HF. To ensure you get the results that you need, select a research proven product such as KER Bio-Bloom HF.

defects, increase tensile strength and improve the condition of the white line. Although the biotin requirement for normal horses is 1-2mg/day, studies have shown that horses with poor hoof quality supplemented with 15-20mg biotin per day have improved histological characteristics of the hoof wall tissue. Biotin can be used in the recovery from laminitis at dose rates equivalent to 45-50 mg per day. However, biotin cannot work alone and needs several other nutrients to ensure it can do its job, speciﬁcally zinc and the amino acid methionine.

Suppleness & Fitness Exercises for Your Horse LOOKING FOR A FRESH APPROACH TO TRAINING? HELP YOUR HORSE DEVELOP BETTER FLEXIBILITY AND FITNESS USING THESE EXERCISES DESIGNED TO GIVE THE COMPETITIVE EDGE IN ANY EQUESTRIAN DISCIPLINE.
Lead your horse at a walk over the poles in a figure 8 pattern, which enables the horse to twist and flex its back muscles as each leg is lifted individually over the pole (from the diagonal direction of movement). Complete the exercise unridden 4-5 times each training session as a warm up before normal ridden work. The Science behind Physical Fitness Optimal cardiovascular conditioning can be developed through step-wise training. Fitness, agility, stamina and recovery are key for competition success but increasing your horse’s training intensity too quickly can lead to problems without a sound foundation in Long Slow Distance (LSD) exercise.
Background: Although many Australian horse owners recognise Dr. John Kohnke as an expert in horse nutrition, others don’t realise that he is considered an authority on equine training and management too! John has consulted with top riders and trainers regarding their horses’ physical fitness with a practical approach that has garnered great results at all training levels. Here are his top training tips!
The graph explains how fitness is developed over time in performance horses. LSD training at the start of a career, or to boost fitness after a spell or down-time, helps adapt the muscles and skeletal system to withstanding increased loading forces and demand for oxygen during more challenging dressage, show-jumping, eventing or other physical training. Contact Kohnke’s Own for a copy of the exceptional LSD training program by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The Positive Benefits of Good Nutrition One of the most important factors for better training outcomes is good nutrition, a suitable diet with balanced energy sources and sensible use of supplements to help sustain performance and maximise recovery. Horses, being grazing animals, are very sensitive to nutritional balance and those in regular exercise need more nutrients than provided by grass, hay or grains. Select a range of good quality supplements tailored to what your horse needs, considering their situation, training level and discipline. One of the main causes of sub-optimal performance is poor nutrition, so don’t let the ‘feedbin’ be a limiting factor - give your horse every chance to achieve success!
Suppleness: Ground Work Pole Exercises This simple pole exercise can revolutionise the flexibility of your horse, particularly in the crucial lower back region where sacroiliac pain and weakness can develop. You will see the most benefit from regular repetition, particularly in tone and build of the top-line and rump region and improved suppleness of the horse.
