Olympic champion, Charlotte Dujardin will be a special guest at this year’s EQUITANA Melbourne.

Dressage superstar heads to Melbourne One of the superstars of the dressage world will be a special guest of EQUITANA Melbourne this year. Charlotte Dujardin is the golden girl of equestrian sports at just 28 - unbeatable and taking the world one championship at a time, including two gold medals at the 2012 Olympic Games. Together with Carl Hester and Roly Luard’s Dutch bred gelding Valegro, they have danced their way into the record books, beating Dutch champion Edward Gal’s world record with an astounding 93.975%. Such scores virtually unheard of in dressage, as they verge on ultimate perfection as a partnership. For the first time, Ms Dujardin will come Downunder exclusively for EQUITANA Melbourne. Over four days, she will reunite with her former trainer, Judy Harvey , an accomplished international Grand Prix rider in her own right, selector for the UK Equestrian Team, and BBC commentator for the Olympic Games to present educational sessions and masterclasses both as a coach and a rider. She will also judge the inaugural show horse Equestrienne Turnout and Ms Harvey will be on the panel for the popular The Way Of The Horse Challenge, a

unique horse-starting challenge that showcases three of Australia’s leading trainers as they take an unhandled horse and make it a rideable equine companion over the EQUITANA event. “I am thrilled to be taking part in Equitana this year alongside Judy Harvey,” Charlotte said. “The event has risen to such recognition over the years and I’m privileged to join a long line of top dressage riders that have presented in the past and to be amongst our Australian supporters.” Charlotte Dujardin’s current coach Carl Hester, was also on the Gold medal winning British Team at London and was a star presenter at EQUITANA Sydney in 2012. EQUITANA Melbourne’s event director Rod Lockwood was thrilled to have had the opportunity to secure the pair. “It’s no mean feat trying to keep presenters fresh and current, and it becomes increasingly difficult to scout talent that we have not brought out before,” he said. EQUITANA Melbourne will take place from November 20-23 at the Melbourne Showgrounds, tickets are now on sale. For more information, visit

The Horse Report

Diet is crucial to growth of healthy foals Foals are born after a gestation period of approximately 11 months. Birth takes place quickly, consistent with the status of a horse as a prey animal, and more often at night than during the day. Foals are born with an ability to quickly escape from predators; normally a foal will stand up and nurse within the first hour after it is born, can trot and canter within hours, and most can gallop by the next day. A newborn foal's legs are almost as long (90%) as those of an adult horse. Healthy foals grow quickly and can put on up to three pounds or over a kilo a day. A sound diet improves growth and leads to a healthier adult animal, although genetics also plays a part. In the first weeks of life, the foal gets everything it needs from the mare's milk. Like a human infant, it receives nourishment and antibodies from the colostrum in milk that is produced within the first few hours or days following parturition. The mare needs additional water to help her produce milk for the foal and may benefit from supplementary nutrition. A foal will nurse for at least four months before being weaned when under human management and have been known to nurse for up to a year in the wild A foal may start to eat solids from 10 days of age, after eight to 10 weeks it will need more nutrition than the mare's milk can supply; supplementary feeding is required by then. It is important when adding solid food to the foal's diet to not feed the foal excessively

Nutrition an diet are essential to the well-being of both foal and mare in the early stages following birth.

or feed an improperly balanced diet. This can trigger one of several possible growth disorders that can cause lifelong soundness problems. On the other hand, insufficient nutrition to mare or foal can cause stunted growth and other health problems for the foal as it gets older. It is typical for foals under human management to be weaned between four and six months of age, though under natural conditions, they may nurse for longer, occasionally until the following year when the mare foals again. A foal that has been weaned but is less than one year old is called a weanling. Mare's milk is not a significant source of nutrients for the foal after about four months, though it does no harm to a healthy

mare for a foal to nurse a month or two longer and may be of some psychological benefit to the foal. A mare that is both nursing and pregnant will have increased nutritional demands made upon her in the last months of pregnancy. Weanlings are not capable of reproduction. Puberty occurs in most horses during their yearling year. Therefore, some young horses are capable of reproduction prior to full physical maturity, though it is not common. Two-year-olds sometimes are deliberately bred, though doing so, particularly with fillies, may put undesirable stress on their stillgrowing bodies. As a general rule, breeding young horses prior to the age of three is considered undesirable.

The Horse Report

Dealing and caring for premature foals By DAVID LOVELL BVSc Redlands Veterinary Clinic Mares are starting to foal and fortunately the majority of owners wake up one morning and are presented with a normal healthy foal. The creator missed out a little when the horse was made and their reproductive system was left a little less than perfect. The mare can be difficult to get in foal in the first place but unfortunately, she is also quite prone to miscarriage and premature foals. By this time of the year there has already been a wave of actual abortions which is a common occurrence at about the seven month stage of pregnancy associated with an internal change in the hormonal control of pregnancy and at this stage, there is no hope of survival of the foetus. As the pregnancy progresses and the mare approaches term, another critical period in the gestation develops as the foal’s needs becomes much more demanding and not infrequently the mare is unable to sustain a


Mares can be difficult to get in foal but the majority of owners wake up to a healthy mare and foal.

normal healthy foetus and premature foaling can become a problem The first concept to understand is that the gestation period of a mare can be quite variable. The normal range is 320 – 360 days and so sometimes a foal can be born up to three weeks earlier than the generally accepted average period of 340 days and still be perfectly normal.

Springtime Park Opening Night

It is in this last six to eight weeks of pregnancy that premature foals are a possibility and often these foals are alive but premature and it is often possible to save many of these. Treatment and management of these early foals needs to be very intensive and aggressive and of necessity, can become extremely expensive. The foal is susceptible to many

complications and owners intending to attempt to salvage one of these foals need to have a long and frank discussion with their veterinarian before commencing. Nonetheless, it can be very rewarding to be involved in the treatment of such an individual. At this stage, I wanted to discuss more the situation of what an owner should consider if their mare begins to develop signs that may signal the possibility of an early foaling. Most commonly this includes the relatively early development of a large udder and possibly the presence of a vaginal discharge or streaming of milk from the udder. Such signs are extremely serious and the owner should immediately seek veterinary advice. The first, and in times gone by, most common cause was the presence of twins. With modern scanning and pregnancy testing methods, this is a lot less common but is still the first thing that should be considered. Â continued page 13

The Horse Report Transporting horses can be a stressful event for both hosse and humam. Horses need to eat frequently for both their physical and mental health. As the horses stomach is small and empties within an hour, they need to constantly be foraging. Constant chewing causes sodium bicarbonate to be naturally released in the horse’s salivia, therefor reducing the risk of stomach ulcers by countering the HCL in the horse’s stomack. Using a slow feeder haynet for your horse while travelling and floating will keep him occupied and allow him access to hay during those long trips. Using a slow feeder systwm allows them to always have something available to chew on. This constant foraging reduces stress, allows the intestinal bacteria to remain balanced therefore reducing the incidence of colic or loose stools, or stomach ulcers. More than 3-4 hourse without anything in the stomach will drastically increase the incidence of stomach ulcers, Add that on to of the fact that competition horses are transported vast distances with very limited feed and ofter long periods of floating without a break and you have horses at very high risk of ulcers.

Learn DPI requirements prior to entering NSW Horses can carry cattle ticks and therefor require treatments and permits to enter NSW. There are cattle tick infested zones in Western Australia, Northern Territory and Queensland. NSW has no cattle tick infested zones so the movement of horses into NSW from all areas of WA, NT and Qld is controlled to ensure the areas remains cattle tick free. Movement into NSW from cattle tick infested zones is subject to very strict controls, usually including treatment at the border. Horses entering NSW from tick infested zones in Qld can be treated at the Kirra Spray Yards (Pacific Highway) or Mt Lindesay (Mt Lindsay Highway) provided 24 hours notice is given. Certain horses entering NSW from the tick infested zone of Queensland for racing events (thoroughbred and harness racing), and returning immediately, are classified as low risk and may not require treatment. However, these horses will require documentation to allow these movements.

The Horse Report

Trainers feature

Working with a horse ‘online’ By KEN FAULKNER Study Centre for Australian Natural Horsemanship As everything we do with our horse on the ground is going to be transferred to when we ride, having a horse understand the feel of the halter and lead and knowing how to follow that feel softly is essential. How many times do we hear the saying “my horse has a hard mouth”? I t’s a fair bet that same horse will be hard and resistant when we work with him on the ground. In fact it’s probably not the horse’s mouth that’s hard, but his attitude. So if we work online and achieve softness through the halter and lead on the ground we will have gone a long way towards softening our horse in all other areas. When teaching a horse to lead, the quickness of our release is the most important ingredient. We can stand in front of our horse slightly off to one side and take up the feel of the lead rope. If the horse resists we need to hold the feel but not pull as this will only cause more resistance. Hold the feel until the horse gives (which may only be an inch or so), and then release immediately. Timing is critical here as not releasing quickly enough means the horse won’t get the immediate reward for doing the right thing. Ask for a little more each time until your horse understands to move forward to get release on the lead. Standing slightly off to one side rather than directly in front of your horse will make this task a little easier for your horse to learn. Once your horse learns to follow the feel of the lead you can ask him to move around you in circles, between you and objects or over jumps. The possibilities are endless, only limited by your imagination. You can use the lead and the principles of feel and timing to work with other parts of your horse. For example with an unhandled horse, you might choose to pick up your horses feet by making a loop at the end of the lead and placing it around your horses fetlock. Then you can lift the horses leg using the lead. You can check the softness of your horse and your level of communication by standing in front of your horse off to the side a little about four feet down the lead, and ask your horse to move just one front leg laterally. Try this until you can ask for a whole circle with the hind-legs relatively still and the front legs stepping around and crossing over laterally. When we ride we’ll want our horse to be able to move away from the pressure of our legs and hands, so in this exercise we’ll teach our horse to yield from pressure in various part of his body to prepare for when we we’re on his back. To yield your horses forequarters, stand beside your horse with your bellybutton facing towards the horse’s eye. Rub your horse before you start. Stand straight and tall with energy in your body and with one hand holding the side of the noseband and the other resting on the horses neck apply gentle pressure on the nose until your horse takes a step to the side. Immediately reward the horse’s try by stopping and standing relaxed and giving the horse a rub. If the horse does not respond from gentle pressure you may need to increase the pressure in four stages until he takes a step. (These four stages are called phases and mimic the behavior of horses when interacting with each other). Reward immediately and start again, asking for a little more try from the horse each time until you can complete a full circle with the hind legs remaining relatively still and the front legs walking around in a circle. If you need to go to a high phase (phase 4), be sure to stop and start again giving your horse a chance to respond on the first phase of gentle pressure. During this exercise, look for the horses leg which is closest to you to step across in front of the other leg, and the leg that’s further from you to step laterally and not forward. This will ensure the horse remains in a submissive frame of mind and does not become defensive. The same principle is used to yield the hindquarters. Stand beside your horse with your bellybutton facing the horse’s hip. Using the lead rope, ask you horse to turn his nose slightly towards you. Using gentle pressure place your other hand near your horses flank and apply pressure until your horse step laterally. The hind leg closest to you should step in front the other one. In this exercise the front legs should move only minimally and the hindquarters should step around in a circle.

Information for weight loss in horses (Supplied by Maxisoy) Feeding for weight loss can be challenging, especially when feeding a horse with very low metabolism (or good doers!) As a general rule the success to weight loss is feeding less calories (or energy) then the horse is utilising. What is being utilised by the horse is very variable dependent on exercise, metabolism, medical conditions and the time of year (hot verse cold weather) and finding the optimum feed quantity for your horse will take some experimentation. Low sugar fibre feeds are the safest and most effective feeds for weight loss, this includes low sugar pasture, hay, chaff and super fibres. What is super fibre? Feeds such as Maxisoy+ (soybean hull) are known as super fibre feeds, they are high in digestible fibre content, and are low GI (low in starch and sugar) allowing for safe and effective weight loss when combined with other low sugar fibre sources. So how should you feed for weight loss? As a generalised guide horses require between 1.5-2.5% of their body weight daily in feed to maintain condition. Work out what your horses ideal weight should be and feed the required feed for that weight. You can then manipulate the quantity and type of feeds you are feeding until you find what works for your horse. Super fibres such as Maxisoy+ can be fed alongside premixed feeds as a highly digestible substitute for chaff or mixed with chaffs, oils and supplements to create your own optimum diet. Example daily feed regime for a horse that should be 500kg and is yarded with no pasture access. A small amount of daily exercise on the lunge is recommended.

Morning Feed 700g Maxisoy (dry weight / feed wet) 300g Lucerne chaff Complete mineral supplement 2.3 kg late cut/stalky hay

Night Feed 700g Maxisoy (dry weight / feed wet) 300g Lucerne chaff Complete mineral supplement 2.3 kg late cut/stalky hay To reduce the sugars in your hay it is suggested that hay is soaked prior to feeding. The reduction in sugars will assist further with weight loss. For more information, visit

The Horse Report

Wagin prepares to host the Quilty Australia’s premier endurance ride, the Tom Quilty Gold Cup will be heading west and will be held in the Western Australia town of Wagin in October this year. The Quilty will be held from October 3 to 5. Wagin, a town of 1,900 people offers a wide range of facilities and activities. Wagin was settled in the early 1880s and is mainly a rural centre approximately 227 kilometres south east of Perth, a 2 ½ hour drive. The Quilty ride base will be located at the Wagin Sports ground which is right next to the town centre and has superb facilities for the competitors who travel from all around Australia and Internationally to attend. The Wagin Sports ground offers first-class event facilities adjacent to the centre of town. It comprises a trotting complex and ample undercover areas to accommodate all aspects of running the event. It is the facility for the Wagin Woolorama, Western Australia’s largest autumn agricultural show. The venue will be open for camping from September 29 until October 6 with full facilities available from October 1.

Endurance riders from around Australia and around the world will converge on the Western Australia town of Wagin to take part in the 49th annual Tom Quilty Gold Cup. Provision will be provided to have stock-feed supplied at the base. The 49th Tom Quilty Gold Cup will be run on a 160km course through the properties of local landowners giving the competitors a good combination of farm tracks, eucalyptus bushland and paddock firebreaks while keeping them safe with minimal interference from the general public and most

importantly traffic. Springtime in Wagin is spectacular and the flora will be putting on a show with its beautiful carpets of canola and wild flowers. Last year, the Quilty was held in Qeensland at Kilkivan and was won by defending champion Brooke Sample on his mount Excalibur. In one of the tightest finishes in

the event’s history, Brooke and Excalibur crossed the finish line in a time of nine hours and 14 minutes, just one-and-a-half lengths ahead of Akhmed Pshunov on Tarrangower Crecendo. Named after Tom Quilty, a passionate horseman, the ride came about in 1966 when he donated 1000 pounds for the creation of the Tom Quilty Gold Cup. The event was designed to test the skill of horse and rider it was awarded to the winner of a 100 mile (160 km) who could not only complete the gruelling course but whose horse also finished in sound health. Quilty and his good mate RM Williams (the famous boot and saddle maker) created the Tom Quilty Gold Cup a national championship endurance horse event, which is now the biggest professional endurance ride in the Southern Hemisphere. Each year it is held in a different state with the last time it was held in WA being in 2007.

Australians miss out on medals but qualify for Rio Olympic Games The Australian Eventing team may have missed out on a podium finish at the 2014 World Equestrian Games (WEG) but it still managed to secure an all important spot in the 2016 Rio Olympics. The Aussies slipped from the bronze medal position to finish fifth in the team's score. But with three riders finishing in the top 20, Australia's eventers have achieved one of their goals by qualifying for the Rio Games. "The team achieved one of its major goals and that was to qualify for Rio - so now all attention turns to Rio and preparing our horses for making the next Olympics," team member Sam Griffiths said. It was again Olympian Stuart Tinney who showed that experience counts, finishing on top for the Aussies with only two rails down in the showjumping, finishing in 12th position overall. It was a mixed final day for the Aussies after a sensational cross country round. Shane Rose and Taurus were first out and were unlucky to have six rails down. Griffiths followed Rose to have only one rail down and add four points. Stuart Tinney and Paul Tapner rounded out the Aussie rides, both with only two rails down. While it edged them out of medal contention, Chef d'Equipe Prue Barrett said the Aussies showed true determination and proved we have the riders to mix it with the best. "Now we know we've qualified and can purely focus on getting our horses ready for the next Olympics," Prue said. Germany finished atop the dias followed by Great Britain and the Netherlands. The eventers weren’t the only ones who will be heading to Rio

in 2016 with Australia’s ParaEquestrians concluded their World Equestrian Games campaign declaring their intention to come back bigger and better in Rio. It was the first World Equestrian Games for all four members of the Australian team and their efforts over the five days of competition helped to book the Aussies a place at the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games. The team of Joann Formosa (Grade Ib), Chelsea Higgins (Grade 3), Lizzie Sobecki (Grade 3) and Nicole Blanks (Grade 4) collectively finished in 13th. Leading into the Games it was the goal of Australia’s ParaEquestrian program to return home with a medal and despite not achieving a podium finish there are a number of positives to come out of the campaign. National Performance Director for Para-Equestrian Julia Battams, said the program would be assessed once the team had returned home. “There will be an opportunity for reflection on the team’s performance when the Games are over but now is the time to celebrate the efforts of our riders and their achievements,” she said Follow the WEG online at
