War Horse comes alive at EQUITANA The biggest equestrian event in the Southern Hemisphere, EQUITANA Australia, is excited to announce that the stars of the amazing cast of performers and puppets of War Horse will make an appearance in Melbourne this year. The National Theatre of Great Britain and Global Creatures are bringing War Horse to Australia and the production will have its Australian Premiere at the Arts Centre in December 2012.

War Horse is a remarkable tale of courage, loyalty and friendship. It is the exhilarating story of a young man's journey to find his beloved horse, Joey, against the backdrop of World War I, is an incredibly powerful spectacle you need to see to believe. At its heart are astonishing lifesize puppets, created by South Africa's Handspring Puppet Company, who will bring breathing, galloping, full-scale horses to life on the stage. War Horse will have great resonance with Australians, not only because of Australia's connection to World War I, but also because the themes of land, loss and the ultimate triumph of friendship

The national talent ID series and Futures Squads are supported by Horsezone.com.au which is committed to fostering equestrian talent at all levels. This year’s talent identification days commenced on October 5 with Dressage in Queensland. Jumping riders with a horse aged between five and seven and Dressage riders with a horse aged between three and eight may be eligible to attend their discipline’s talent identification day (riders are encouraged to visit the EA website for further information). For talented combinations which have the potential of reaching the highest levels of competition, a place on their discipline’s Futures Squad provides both horse and rider with an entry point into the High Performance Program which opens the door to a wide range of support services. As well as receiving access to national clinics which assist in tracking performance, squad

members are offered veterinary, sports science and sports medicine support - measures which aim to put a promising combination on the pathway to international success. “The National Futures Squads are a vital part of the National Pathways program as they provide riders with access to many High Performance support services and staff including the National Performance Director and National Selectors,” High Performance Manager Brett Mace said. “It is highly likely that some of the combinations selected for the Future Squads through this series of talent identification days will be representing Australia at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio.” The 2013 Futures Squads will be chosen by each discipline’s National Performance Director and National Selectors based on a set of criteria which aims to predict future success at elite levels of competition.

The Horse Report

Warmer months bring insect threats With Spring bringing the warmer weather this usually means an increase in flying insects and for horse owners that means the need to be vigilant against the risk of insect borne viral infections. The most common virus being arboviruses, these are primarily carried and spread by mosquitoes. Although a number of studies are carried out each year on the effects of arboviruses on animals in Australia, there is very little known about the strains and the effects these can have on your horse. MOSQUITOES Unexplained cases of disease in horses have been recorded around Australia in the past and they usually coincide with periods of very high mosquito activity after a high rainfall period. Associating these cases with nearby water bodies suggests mosquito-borne infection is the primary cause. The horse is usually a 'dead-end' host for mosquito-borne arbovirus infections and is not considered a likely source of new infection for people or other horses. Female mosquitoes suck blood from animals, including humans, as part of their eating and breeding habits. When a mosquito bites, she also injects saliva and anti-coagulants into the blood which may contain disease-causing organisms.

Page 6

Affected horses typically show either nervous (neurological) signs, including being wobbly on their feet, or a reluctance to move and swollen joints. Affected horses usually recover uneventfully and deaths are rare. Viruses causing two mosquito-borne human diseases, Ross River fever and Murray Valley encephalitis, have been implicated in these unexplained cases. Laboratory testing of samples from horses with unusual nervous signs suggests that a majority of cases are due to infection with one of several Australian strains of mosquito-borne Flaviviruses that include Murray Valley encephalitis virus and Kunjin virus. Soreness signs are associated with Alphavirus infections; include predominantly a reluctance to walk, stiff gait and ataxia Nervous signs are associated with Flavivirus infections. Early signs of infection may include depression or mild colic. These initial signs are followed by nervous signs including lack of coordination, high stepping in front limbs, weakness in the hind quarters, muscle twitching and increased responsiveness to touch and sound. In some cases there has been facial paralysis or twitching, especially of the lips. Severely affected horses may fall repeatedly and in rare cases develop convulsions.

However, owners need to be aware that in a small percentage of horse, the virus can prove to be fatal. Prevention - mosquitoes Horse owners should try to prevent their animals from being bitten by insects through measures including rugging, fly masks and using registered insect repellents. Horse owners are urged not to become complacent. ď ­ Ensuring that horses are kept in good condition will help build a strong immune system and minimise the risk of infection with arboviruses. ď ­ utilise some of the latest options in control, like insect control fabric horsewear. these help to deter a large majority of insect species by repelling or preventing them from biting & transmitting diseases to your horse. Mosquitoes seem especially affected by these products and latest studies show how they stay away from treated fabric preventing them from harbouring around or underneath rugs or horswear products.

Preventative measures can combat insects From page 6

 Eliminate breeding sites by removing stagnant/standing water. This includes disposing of tins, tyres and rubbish containers that may hold water, and ensuring that mozzies can’t access rainwater tanks.  House horses during peak periods of mosquito activity (ie. between dusk and dawn).  Turn off lights inside stables at night.  Use fluorescent lights in stables which do not attract mosquitoes.  Place incandescent bulbs around the stable perimeter to attract mosquitoes away from horses.  Use commercial mosquito traps.  Screen stable windows.  Use fogging, fans and automatic overhead misting systems to eliminate mosquitoes within stables. Mosquitoes aren't the only insects which can cause considerable concern for both horses and their owners over Spring and Summer. FLIES Biting flies, nuisance flies, lice, and bots can cause damage and irritation to horses. Biting flies tend to draw the most attention because of the irritations and infections they can cause. Stable flies and horse flies (females) feed on

blood from practically any warm blooded animal including horses, humans, pets and other livestock. Peaks of feeding activity commonly occur during the early morning and again in the late afternoon. Stable flies prefer feeding on lower parts of the hosts such as the legs and belly of horses with the female depositing eggs into a variety of decaying animal and plant wastes but are rarely found in fresh manure. Fly larvae develop in excrement mixed with straw, soil, silage or grain. Horse flies can inflict painful bites and present major problems for grazing horses particularly animals pastured near streams or low, wet areas.

Horse flies have been incriminated in the transmission of equine infectious anemia. Control is difficult; individual animal treatment using repellents or insecticidal sprays may reduce fly bites. Prevention - flies Prevention of flies relies heavily on sound sanitation programs.  Sanitation around stables or yards is necessary to reduce or eliminate larval development sites.  Timely spreading of manure promotes drying and prevents larvae from developing.  Chemical control techniques are available to the horse owner and generally involves the control of adult flies using residual insecticides such as surface treatments and knockdown sprays. In most farm situations, a combination of residual and space sprays is used, often on an alternating schedule.  Applications of residual insecticides to premises are frequently used to control both house and stable flies.  Direct animal applications of sprays and dusts may be used in some situations to protect animals. Materials used for direct application usually have short residual activity. Reporting Owners who notice horses displaying unusual signs should contact their private veterinarian immediately.

Ticks can pose a hidden danger for horses Ticks can pose a less-than-obvious threat to horses so it is important for owners to conduct regular inspections for them. The three main ticks that can affect horses in Australia are cattle ticks, New Zealand cattle ticks (bush) and paralysis ticks. Cattle ticks are found in Queensland, north easten NSW, the Northern Territory and Western Australia. The bush tick is found in the coastal region of south east Queensland, the NSW coastline and north eastern Victoria. Paralysis ticks are usually found in coastal areas of eastern Australia in late winter, spring and summer. These ticks cause paralysis and can sometimes kill a young foal but adult horses have some resistance. Ticks need humidity and mild weather to develop and will not survive and breed in cold climates. In northern parts of Australia paralysis ticks may be found all year round, while in southern areas the season goes

Symptoms of ticks The most common sign is lameness, especially if the tick is located on or near a limb. The horse may drag his leg.

Cattle tick

Bush tick

from spring through to autumn. The tick population in a given year is probably governed by the rainfall in the previous year if the temperature variations have only been moderate. Some affected horses will rub the area that the ticks attach themselves excessively. On horses, the areas that are common for ticks are: - the lips, nose and mouth since horses graze, their head is a good climbing spot for ticks - eyes, ears, pole - legs - anus and genitals - between teats - belly - base of tail If a tick is found, it is advisable to continue a thorough examination of the horse as chances are

Paralysis tick

there will be more. Horses in tick areas must be checked regularly and if any ticks are found they can be sprayed with a pyrethrum based insect repellent (or roll on). Wait about an hour and then apply the solution again. The tick should drop off soon after or if not you can then remove it with tweezers as it should be dead. It is recommended that owners not to use irritants such as turpentine, kerosene, or petrol. These will kill the tick but may not make it any easier to remove. It is possible that stimulation by these substances may cause the tick to inject more toxin before dying. Do not pull them off alive as this may result in the head of the tick being left under the horse’s skin.

Respiratory difficulty: breathing may be heavy and slow Choking: as the toxins of the tick are released in the body and the muscles start to malfunction, the horse may look as if he is choking. Horses cannot vomit like a dog so it looks like he is choking instead. he might have some saliva and foam at the mouth. Staggering gait: the horse may walk strangely and vacillates Sweating: the horse might start to sweat heavily Swollen body parts: the tick bite area may be swollen and red General distress: the horse may look distressed, have dilated pupils and may even lay down.

If the horse shows any adverse effects then a vet should be consulted.

Dressing to impress in the show ring It’s not just the horses that have to look impressive in the show ring - from judges to riders, presentation is equally as important. The judge A judge's dress is purely a matter of preference. Some judges like to wear riding attire while others prefer street wear. Whatever you wear, it should be comfortable, as the judging day is usually a long one. Sensible footwear is essential. Choose footwear you can move in and will give some protection. Horses have a habit of jumping on exposed flesh - especially feet. Avoid bright gaudy clothing. Keep your colour scheme and style conservative. A competitor dresses as a complement to the judge, so the judge should be in keeping with that complement. All judges should wear a hat. A male judge is expected to remove his hat when addressing competitors or during any award presentation.

A male judge should also wear a jacket. If the weather is extremely hot or humid, the judge may remove his jacket and have it conveyed to the competitors that they are at liberty to follow suit if they desire. Leading Rein Attire for the leading rein handler is to be tasteful and functional to compliment overall picture and not to take away from

The Rider For hacking, apart from top level turnout, by shopping around for good quality brands, a person could attire themselves for a fraction of the cost of tailormade clothes. Small alterations of fit are easily made by a tailor. Following the creed of classic lines and good taste it will be hard to go wrong. Jodphurs and breeches should be fawn, beige, lemon or banana. If jodpurs are worn with short boots they should finish neatly at the ankle. The rider’s boots should be leather and either brown or black and compliment the colour scheme chosen. Leather gloves are also worn in many colours and styles. Hair should be neat and tidy and in a hair net. The style will depend on your age - from cute plaits and bows for leading rein to a stylish bun for the lady rider. continued page 11

Setting the standard in the ring From page 10

Select a shirt with a proper collar and tie or rat catcher shirt and stock in colours to compliment your chosen jacket. There are many styles of jackets on the market at the moment, double vent, single vent, cutaway, mini tails, tuxedo and more The correct cut and fit of riding clothes is important for the total look of neatness and correctness as well as being a matter of personal pride. The better the look, the better the feel, and the better we show the horse off The dress code for Show Hunter classes is generally far more conservative and understated than Show Horse classes and include tweed fabrics in olive, and brown tonings. Two very important factors about clothing which are sometimes overlooked, especially with children, are that everything should fit the rider and be comfortable to ride in. and of course the important approved safety helmet, velvet covered which tones that match the riding coat. A helpful few don'ts: - don't wear jewelry, - don’t wear too much makeup - don’t wear gaudy and bright colours and clothing that don’t fit.

HOW TO TIE A WINDSOR KNOT

Riders need to be mindful of their own presentation when entering the showring, not just their horse.

By BOB ANTHONY If you are looking for a holiday where even your horse can come too, consider Cherrabah Homestead Resort just outside of Warwick. Set on more than 2000 hectares, Cherrabah offers a wide range of on site accommodation, camping and true bush experiences. There are a range of different trials on offer, taking in the landscape, bush and wildlife. They can cater for families who want to bring their own horses for a change of environment with powered camp sites and yards or just saddle up one of the resort’s horse and hit the trail with experienced guide Anita Grayson. It doesn't matter what level of rider you are, Anita can match you up with a horse which is worthy of your standard (or at the very least) will 'look after you' on the trail. I'm not the best equestrian but she put me right at ease, showing me around the stable complex, introducing me to my mount and giving me a few simple tips before we headed out into the bush. There a number of different rides you can take that vary in duration and terrain. It's a great way to take the natural bushland, may see a kangaroo or wallaby, get up close with the odd reptile, surprise a bird or two and see some spectacular geological formations such as Balancing Rock, if you are up to it.

There’s places where you can enjoy billy tea and damper such as the old slab hut and there are plenty of reminders of the devastating rains that hit Queensland last year with washout and tracks now being gullies. It all adds to the appeal of the ride and an appreciation of the native environment. The rides cater for children eight years and older who are at least 1.3m tall. They even have pony rides for youngsters not old enough to go on the trail rides. For those wanting to learn to ride, Cherrabah can arrange for lessons. Cherrabah is well-suited to catering for families looking for a holiday alternative and you can stay in a range of different accommodation or even camp there and enjoy the facilities. With a pool, lake, tennis courts and of course horses, you can be as active as you like from swimming, canoeing, fishing, bush walking, quad biking, tractor train rides and wildlife tours, Cherrabah prides itself in being able to provide a taste of the country to families and people looking for an alternative break to city living. The resort is located about two and half hours from Brisbane and around 30kms from Warwick. You can find out more about the resort by visiting the website at www.cherrabah.com.au The author was a guest of Cherrabah Homestead Resort and Tourism Qld

The Horse Report

Making sure the new foal is `normal’ By DAVID LOVELL BVSc Redlands Veterinary Clinic Fortunately in the horse, usually very little goes wrong and by far the greatest majority of mares foal uneventfully. Today we start at the time where the foal has just been successfully delivered. The mare is still lying on the ground, (in most cases), and the foal is still attached by the umbilical cord to the placenta at the mare’s hind quarter. The time from now, until the end of the first week, is far and away the most critical period in the life of the horse. This is when things go wrong. Early recognition of problems, and swift intervention is essential if the foal is going to progress successfully. Obviously the foal must commence to breathe on its own. Within 10 - 15 minutes the foal starts kicking and moving around. Vigorous activity by the foal results in a tearing of the cord and natural separation of the foal from the placenta. This short period of inactivity and attachment to the placenta is very important as the placenta contains a lot of blood and this needs to be

absorbed into the foals body to ensure an adequate blood volume. Premature breaking and separation will result in an immediate anaemia so patience by the foaling attendant is crucial as we do not want to spook the mare or force things to happen too quickly. If the cord has not separated after about 20 minutes, then possibly human severance may be necessary but be very careful as it usu-

ally means something is not right and premature cutting may result in haemorrhage from the foal's navel and ligation may be necessary. If natural separation has not occurred, it may well be an indicator of a weak foal. Management should now inspect the placenta and ensure it has all been passed intact. If there is any doubt, keep the material for a veterinary inspection. It can occur that one of the horns tears off and is retained in the uterus. If this occurs, it can quickly result in a life-threatening infection in the mare so diligence is essential. The mare should also be inspected for any tearing that may have occurred. Check the udder for milk and any possible mastitis or problems and monitor the mare carefully for normal behaviour as rarely a very serious internal haemorrhage can possibly occur. Problems with the mare are relatively rare. The most common being a retained placenta. In this case, the foal is delivered and the cord breaks, but the placenta is still within the uterus. Potentially this can also be a major disaster, but not usually as serious as the small piece of retained material that is not noticed. Most mares will stand within 20 minutes of foaling. If the placenta is retained, they will often pass it by natural contractions within a short time. By eight hours, management should be concerned, and certainly by 12 hours after foaling, if the placenta has not passed, veterinary attention should be sort. Problems with the foal are common. The gold standard is that the foal should stand and suck,

ideally within an hour of delivery, but very definitely by two hours after birth. If this does not occur, it usually indicates that the foal has a very serious problem. The normal process is for the foal to become progressively more vigorous and start making attempts to stand. They are very awkward and wobbly at first but the normal foal quickly gains strength and balance and is up and looking to suck within half to one hour. Good mares will usually help guide the foal to the udder. Some mares, particularly maidens, can be confused and even frightened of the foal and some help from management may be required. Sometimes the udder is very swollen and painful and the foal's attempts at suckling may be hurting the mare and she may become very unco-operative. Each case needs to be evaluated and help given if necessary. This process of suckling is by far the most important facet of the foal's existence. Everyone knows about colostrum, and the importance of the "first milk". Yes, this is very important and ideally the foal gets an adequate supply as this milk is extremely rich in antibodies from the mare and these serve to protect the foal form infections during the first weeks of life until their own immune system matures and has time to develop the foals own natural antibodies. The simple fact that a foal does not get a full complement of maternal antibody is not necessarily a disaster. Yes, they are very important, but not necessarily critical for the foal's survival. What is far more important is the suckling reflex and the fact that the foal actually does suckle vigorously. The maternal antibodies contained in colostrums are very large molecule proteins. The foal is born with absorption cells in the intestine that are very large and open so that they are able to absorb the protein molecules intact and in one piece without being broken down by the digestive process. Unfortunately, the size of the antibody proteins is very similar to the size of some of the deadly bacteria that can infect foals. Next in line of importance is the passing of the meconium, or first manure. While in the uterus, waste continually build up in the lower colon and rectum of the foal. continued page 15

The Horse Report

Observing behaviour of the new foal can reveal problems from page 14 It really is incredible just how much of this material can accumulate, (obviously the foal does not defecate while still in the uterus). There can easily be up to a metre of very firm round pellets of manure in the lower bowel and it is essential that the foal is able to pass this. Owners need to be diligent and aware and observe the foal carefully. Obviously visualisation of the passage of manure puts your mind at rest. If none is seen, or the foal is observed to be lifting its tail or straining, advice should be sort. The condition can reasonably rapidly, (24 - 48 hours), progress to severe constipation and colic. The problem is much more common in male foals rather than females because of the different shapes of their pelvic inlets. Also, foals that tend to go longer or overdue may well be a little more susceptible. Treatment involves oil orally and enemas and the sooner remedies are applied, the better the chances of success. Urination is also important.

Ruptured bladders are relatively rare but do occur, usually as a result of abnormal pressures as the foal passages the birth canal. Visualisation of a foal regularly urinating usually is enough to reassure the owner. If the bladder is ruptured, urine slowly builds up in the abdomen of the foal over a few days and there is a slow progressive deterioration in the condition of the foal. Another urinary problem is a "pervious urachus" where the foal passes urine through the navel. This is not uncommon. In the uterus, the bladder actually opens into the umbilical cord. When the cord breaks at birth, the bladder detaches naturally, contracts and seals. In some cases, it doesn't detach properly and can remain attached to the navel with the foal passing urine via the opening. This is a very disconcerting situation and can be very serious but often as the foal grows, the bladder will separate and seal so many times patience and management will resolve the issue. Surgery can sometimes be

required but best to try and avoid. Frequent normal urination is a very good sign that the foal is getting enough milk and is properly hydrated. It is important to realise that a normal foal drinks small amounts often. Once satiated, the foal will lie down and sleep, and then get up and feed again. Foals that are not seen to be happy and sleeping, often roam-

ing and restless, usually means that something is amiss and probably not getting enough milk. The last of the so called "common" problems are the myriad deformities and malformations that can occur with the legs. These can be crooked, contracted, lax, rotated, or any combination of the lot. Limb abnormalities are relatively common and are the subject of a whole discussion and article. Sufficient to say here that owners need to be aware of the potential issue, assess their foal, and seek advice if any abnormality is observed. So now we have a new born foal that is up, active and strong. The foal is taking in food at one end and passing out faeces and urine at the other. Life is great and if all this progressed in a rapid and timely manner, the expectation is that the owners can reasonably anticipate that their foal will grow and develop into a magnificent animal. Variations from this progression are usually serious and can require intensive management.

Breathe within seconds of birth Lift its head within 5 minutes Stand within 60 minutes Vocalize (call to the mare) 60 minutes Attempt to suckle within 60 minutes Walk / canter within 90 minutes Takes its first sleep within 2 hours. It is a very busy time for the NEWBORN foal. Once the foal is established bathe the umbilical stump with dilute iodine solution to prevent infection. The stump should dry within 3 days, but if it continues to leak fluid (possibly urine), or becomes smelly, call your veterinarian. It is important for the foal to drink at least 2 -3 litres of colostrum during the first 12 hours of life. It may suckle from 3 to 5 times per hour, consuming 50-60 mls at a time. Colostrum is essential to provide immunity against infections during the first vulnerable weeks of life until the foal can establish it’s own antibodies. A blood test to measure the antibody or immunogloblin level of the foal can be conducted by your veterinarian, and if necessary antibodies may be administered via plasma. Inadequate antibody levels will make the foal less able to defend itself against bacteria that cause diarrhoea, pneumonia or joint-ill. Another important activity for the newborn foal is to pass meconium – the first sticky, dark-coloured pellets of dung that have accumulated in the intestine while the foal is in the uterus. If the meconium is not passed the foal will become listless and may stop drinking – resulting in dehydration which is a serious problem. Most foals are active, curious and normal and are well worth the time and effort it takes to ensure their well-being. If in doubt call your local vet.

The Horse Report

Simple action can cut Hendra virus risk New research has confirmed longstanding advice that the risk of Hendra virus infection can be significantly reduced by keeping horses away from fruiting or flowering trees that flying foxes feed in. Biosecurity Queensland researcher, Dr Hume Field, said scientists from the Queensland Centre for Emerging Infectious Diseases (QCEID) had undertaken two studies into the levels and distribution patterns of Hendra virus excreted by flying foxes. “The investiga- Dr Hume Field tion has found that all flying fox urine and almost all faeces and fruit debris, or spats, fall directly under the canopy of fruiting trees in which they are feeding,” Dr Field said. “Therefore it is clear and understandable that unstabled horses should be kept in open pastures and away from trees in flower or fruit.” Dr Field said QCEID scientists had looked at the amount of excreta and food debris left by flying foxes and the pattern of dis-

tribution. “In one study, plastic sheets were laid under a large, heavily fruiting weeping fig to capture excretions,” he said. “The second study involved laying plastic sheeting from the base of a heavily fruiting, smallleaved fig to a non-fruiting, nonflowering tree nearly 50 metres away. “We wanted to quantify the amount of food debris and excreta produced by feeding flying foxes, and see how far it extended beyond the perimeter of the trees. “Less than one per cent of excretions and spats were found under the nearby non-fruiting, non-flowering tree. “Significantly, no excreta at all was discovered in the paddock between the two trees. “I want to emphasise that vigilance is our most important weapon against this disease. Horse owners need to ensure they are doing all they can to reduce the risk. “In the meantime, biosecurity authorities will continue to conduct research and provide the latest advice.” For more information on Hendra virus research, visit www.biosecurity.qld.gov.au or call 13 25 23.

Survey help sought on flying foxes Biosecurity Queensland is calling on members of the general public to participate in an online survey about flying foxes. The survey aims to gain a better understanding of public opinions, attitudes and knowledge of flying foxes and possible flying fox management options. Due to the number of Hendra virus incidents in recent years, some communities have become more aware of the presence of flying foxes and the viruses that can be carried by these animals. In areas where dispersal of flying foxes has either been proposed or has occurred, there has also been some concern about possible increased virus excretion from flying foxes as a result of dispersal. Most questions are multiple choice, and you can also add

additional comments if you want to. It will take you less than 10 minutes to complete the survey. The survey is the third and final survey designed to target separate stakeholders involved and affected by Hendra virus in Queensland. The survey is conducted by the Queensland Centre for Emerging Infectious Diseases, a division of Biosecurity Queensland, in conjunction with the Department of Environment and Heritage Protection. The public can complete the online survey at www.research.net/s/Community _Survey_on_Flying-foxes The survey closes on 12 October 2012.

WHAT'S NEW AGRISORB HORSE BEDDING In Europe, 40,000 tonnes of hemp bedding is sold every year, and now for the first time, Agrisorb® Hemp Horse Bedding is available in Australia. Hemp absorbs four times (400%) its own weight, compared to wood shavings (250%) and straw (225%). The rate of absorption is also higher in hemp, resulting in a clumping effect of soiled material for easy removal and maintaining a dry stable floor under the bedding. Agrisorb® contains negligible dust and spores compared to cheap bedding derived from waste products, providing a cleaner stable environment. Independent trials have found that Agrisorb® Bedding also absorbs the ammonia odour, so your stable stays fresher, longer. Agrisorb® makes for a warm and comfortable bed; it stays drier longer and has a soft and spongy feel. Hemp provides excellent insulation against cold concrete flooring, and protection from injury. It's "non-slip" properties also make it an ideal bedding during transport. Agrisorb® Hemp Horse Bedding is produced from the inner cellulose woody section of the industrial hemp stalk. An Agrisorb® bed is quick and easy to maintain; staying drier and lasting longer than conventional materials. For further information, email info@ecofibre.com.au or visit www.ecofibre.com.au

Coming to the rescue of abused neglected or unwanted horses By KYLIE KAWECKI The National Horse and Pony Rescue is a registered charity, founded in 2012, and situated in the Bilambil Valley of northern NSW. We help neglected, abused, unwanted and slaughter bound horses and ponies giving them first class rehabilitation and training. Once our rescue horses are physically and emotionally rehabilitated we offer them for adoption on a life time contract. All of our horses and ponies are vet checked, dental checked, microchipped, vaccinated and have a rider assessment before going to their new loving homes, a full report on their medical and behavioural history is also sent to new owners. We do three monthly visits to our adopted horses to ensure their well-being and to touch base with the adoptive owners. After care is available with 24hour access to us in case of an

emergency or the horse is ill or for just some general advice, this is available for the life of the horse. In the future we aim to have educational programs ,clinics and Equine Facilitated Therapy, we also aim to have rescue centres around the country linking many different equine industries for a common cause and that is the welfare of the horse. We have a duty of care to not only rehabilitate horses in need but to ensure they are happy and healthy until their last days. National Horse and Pony Rescue is launching our 2013 calendar in October. The calendars will be on sale for $15 and all proceeds from the sale go to rehabilitating horses and ponies in need. If you would like to purchase a calendar or make a donation please email or call Kylie Kawecki at kylienhpr@hotmail.com or call 0424 254 427.

Royal sportswoman heads to Magic Millions Great Britain Olympic Eventing team silver medalist, Zara Phillips MBE, and former European and World Champion, has been announced as the first Magic Millions Racing Women (MMRW) Ambassador, an appointment that will see her visit Australia in early January for the Magic Millions Carnival. An internationally accomplished equestrienne, Ms Phillips brings to the MMRW initiative a genuine passion for the industry and depth of knowledge. She fosters a lifelong passion for horses, ignited by her parents and grandmother’s commitment to thoroughbred sporting endeavours. Daughter of Princess Anne and Captain Mark Phillips, Ms Phillips holds a number of elite sporting accolades, including earlier this month when she won a silver medal in team eventing at the London Olympic Games. She is a former European individual and team Gold medallist as well as individual World Champion in 2006. She was named the 2006 BBC

Zara Phillips MBE will be on the Gold Coast in January as the inaugural ambassador for the Magic Millions Racing Womens initiative. Sports Personality of the Year and was conferred a Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) for services to equestrianism in 2007. Magic Millions Racing Women initiative was created to educate and encourage Australian women to become more active in all aspects of the thoroughbred racing industry.

Ms Phillips said she was pleased to be associated with the Magic Millions initiative. “I got involved in Magic Millions Racing Women to help try and raise awareness of the many different ways in which women can be involved in this industry, including horse ownership, and to raise the profile of women in the racing industry in Australia, “ she said. “Magic Millions is having a race where there will be horses competing that are solely owned by women. There are prizes for the first four horses owned by women that cross the line.” IMMRW was launched in 2011 by Magic Millions co-owner and thoroughbred horse racing industry advocate, Katie PageHarvey. Her vision is to continue to increase the profile of women in the sector with which she has been involved for over 30 years. Ms Page-Harvey is delighted to have such an internationally accomplished equestrienne to help educate women about the MMRW initiative.

“We are delighted that Zara has agreed to be the inaugural ambassador for the Magic Millions Racing Women initiative,” Ms Page-Harvey said. “She was an exemplary ambassador for her sport and her country at the recent Olympic Games in London and we look forward to welcoming her to Australia in January. “We want to shine a light on women’s vital contribution and make it easy for women to participate through horse ownership. Statistics indicate that less than 25 percent of Australia's racehorses are owned by women either as individuals or in allfemale partnerships. I’d like to see more.” Ms Phillips will visit Australia and attend the Magic Millions Carnival and Raceday on Saturday, January 12 at the Gold Coast Turf Club where the world’s first women’s-only incentive - Magic Millions Racing Women (MMRW) 2YO Classic - will be run.

NSW pony club eventers will converge on Albury Wodonga for the state championships this month.

Pony club eventers can learn from Australian Olympian Competitors and their families, attending the Ranvet State One Day Eventing Championship at Albury Wodonga will be able to share the company of Australian Olympian over the weekend of October 6 and 7. This state qualifying event is to be held at the Albury Wodonga Equestrian Centre and will include a special dinner will be held with special guest, Olympic Eventing legend Shane Rose. Shane Rose was a Pony Club member from the age of four until he was 17. He attended Forest Hills, Avondale, ManlyWarringah and Ryde Pony Clubs. He holds an Olympic Silver Medal from the Beijing 2008 Games. More recently Shane spent five years in preparation for the London Olympics but in a devastating blow, his horse Taurus pulled up lame in the lead up to the games. He will share some of his experiences from the London Olympics and his rise to fame from pony club to an international level and photo and signature opportunities will be available. ODE competition will commence on Saturday, October 6 from 8:30am and conclude on Sunday afternoon with the mounted presentation ceremony. The championship consists of three sections - dressage, showjumping and cross country jumping. It is designed to test the courage, determination and all round ability of the rider, as well as the training and conditioning of the horse. According to local Zone 20 competitors can expect a spectacular event with top class facilities.

“Zone 20 is extremely proud to be hosting the event at the Albury Wodonga Equestrian Centre, a fantastic facility that regularly hosts State and National level equine events,”event organiser Bradley Hayden said. “The venue annually hosts the Albury Wodonga International Horse Trials with the cross country course receiving significant development each year (approximately $30,000 spent on it in 2012). “Olympic contenders Shane Rose, Chris Burton, Tim Boland and Meagan Jones (among many others) have all competed at the venue over the past 2 years.” In order to prepare for the event, local Zone 20 riders have developed an Eventing Squad. “There are 13 riders in the squad and they have been meeting and training regularly over the past five months and will continue up until the event,” Mr Hayden said Dinner with Shane Rose, hosted by Zone 20, is on the Saturday night. Tickets must be pre booked through the host zone dinner booking form located on the schedule on the Pony Club NSW website. Event organisers would like to thank naming rights sponsor, Ranvet for their support of this event. Ranvet will be providing each of the age champions with a champion rug and showbag. The next state event is the Virbac Animal Health State Show Riding Championship which is to be held at Bi-Centennial Park, Camden on December 1 and 2.

The Horse Report

Carlos Tabernaberri Clinic Well known trainer, Carlos Tabernaberri is passionate at developing a horse through a good foundation and not through the force of a bit to make him look the part. He believes there are no problems in either the horse or rider, just a lack of communication, understanding and trust. That's why he uses this gentling method, whether introducing a horse to the saddle for the first time or correcting an existing behavioural problem. It ensures improved performance and versatility, regardless of your preferred discipline. Carlos will be covering a broad range of areas, both on the ground and under saddle in his upcoming Moggill clinics. Riders and horses of all ages, disciplines and levels are welcome. Very limited spaces with horses available and fencesitters are also welcome. For more information or to book a space please contact Nicole on 0414 320 974 or email firefly2376@yahoo.com.au

Association calls for regional change room upgrades to cater for female jockeys The Australian Jockeys Association has called on other Australian states to match or exceed improvements made to jockey facilities in regional areas as announced by the Victorian Government. The Victorian Government will invest $225,000 to upgrade jockey rooms at five country racing clubs to accommodate the growing number of female jockeys. Australian Jockeys Association CEO Paul Innes

said female jockeys had put up with sub-standard facilities for too long. “Once upon a time jockeys were all male and there was no need for the racing industry to accommodate gender specific change rooms or facilities,” Mr

Innes said. “That time has long passed and female jockeys now make up 20% of Australia’s jockey population. “In the country regions that can be as high as one in two or more. It is not acceptable for them to have to get changed with the men or share their toilet and shower facilities. “Jockey rooms in regional areas across Australia are generally run down and in desperate need of upgrade.

“From poor facilities to flaking paint and general disrepair, many regional jockey rooms are just not up to scratch. “In an industry that makes such a significant contribution to local and state economies, estimated at more than $5billion, to shun the needs of jockeys is unjust. “I commend the Victorian Government and Victorian racing authorities for taking this on and encourage other states to follow suit.”

The Horse Report

Dayboro Trailriders host Big October ride The Dayboro Trailriders are saddling up for their 14th annual horse trail riding event, the 'Big October Ride', later this month. To be held on Saturday, October 27, there will be different rides on offer - a three hour ride or a seven hour ride. It was an all new seven hour ride last year that headed out toward Lacey's Creek. This ride turned out to be so popular that it will be run again. Both rides are non-competitive and leisurely paced. Participants need to bring their own horse and riding gear. There is no age limit on either riders or horses; however both will need to be fit enough and competent to take part. Riders 16 years and under will require a responsible adult or guardian. Riders 18 years and under must wear an approved riding helmet. Strictly no stallions, rigs or dogs. Catering is definitely available across the weekend but only guaranteed if you pre book. Pre nominations are preferred. This event has become avidly looked forward to, each year, by riders locally and further a field. Changes this year will be the Friday and Saturday evening format. With permission from the Rural FIre

Service both evenings will be casual and relaxed around the campfire. A licenced bar will be operating both nights. Friday night is $6 steak burger night with desserts at $3. Saturday evening live entertainment kicks off at 8pm until midnight with local talent Sharryn Bell. Ride fees are $40 for visitors or $30 for TRA members. Fees cover your camping fees, insurance, morning tea and lunch as well as Saturday night's live entertainment. If you don't ride but wish to be part of the evening it's not a problem - $10 at the door will get you in. The Dayboro Venturer Scouts are planning to be on hand at morning tea and lunch (long ride) to provide drinks and refreshments. Last year saw 214 horse and riders take part in a great day's trail riding and evening of entertainment. Previously we've been host to riders from the Brisbane suburbs, Ipswich, Toowoomba, Yarraman, Gympie, Maryborough, Gold Coast and NSW. For details, visit the website at www.dayborotrailriders.com.au or 'Big October Ride' on facebook. For further info contact 07-3425 1651, 0438 763 312 or 3425 3248.

RHONDA’S REFITS

Joann brings home gold and Paralympic glory Australia's Para-Equestrian team have been welcomed home after an outstanding performance in London. The team received a hero’s welcome in Sydney when their plane touched down. As they disembarked the plane athletes were greeted by the Federal Sports Minister Kate Lundy, the Federal opposition leader Tony Abbott and about 300 family and friends. Joann Formosa was delighted to finally arrive home - her baggage weighing a little heavier than when she departed thanks to the gold medal she won in the grade Ib Individual Championship Test. The proud new owner of Australia’s first Equestrian gold medal from an Olympics or Paralympic Games since Sydney 2000 was upgraded to business class for the 24 hour flight home. “There was a great vibe on board the plane, everyone was in good spirits and it was lovely down my end of the plane. I had plenty of room to stretch out,” Joann said. “Now that we’re home it’s finally starting to sink in that I lived my dream and achieved my goal which was to win a gold medal. “I can’t wait to get home and celebrate with my family and friends.” Having experienced a whirlwind of emotions, our riders have earned a well-deserved rest with most saying their immediate plans involve catching-up on some sleep. “The days that we were out at

Joann Formosa won Australia’s first equestrian gold medal in either the Olympics or Paralympic Games since Sydney in 2000.

Greenwich were really long, we were just running on adrenalin towards the end of the Games so I think it will catch up with us now that we’re home,” said Sydney based rider Hannah Dodd. Following the welcome home ceremony, interstate riders said her farewells before boarding planes to take them home to their family and friends. A determined Joann Formosa said she’s keen to get straight back in the saddle and has her sights firmly set on making a second Paralympic Games team for the 2016 Games in Brazil. “Bring on Rio,” a smiling Joann said.
