Marie Kjoell’s willingness to help a couple of horses has evolved into something so much more, her Egyptian Equine Charity now helping hundreds of horses in a country that presents numerous challenges when it comes to the welfare of horses.



WHERE THERE’S A WILL

by Wendy Elks with the Equine Team from law firm Jansen, Walsh and Grace.
You care deeply for your horse and ensure their every need is provided for, but what would happen in the event of your death? It’s a good idea to consider what could happen and if plans should be put in place for their on-going care and your wishes.

 

HORSE MEDICATION AND YOUR HEALTH
Handling horse medications appropriately is important, especially in the case of some drugs as Sharon Patton found out the hard way while treating her old horse for PPID.

CARING FOR YOUR ARENA by Kaye Meynell
If your property’s facilities include an arena it’s important that this asset is constructed and maintained properly, for your horse’s safety and the arena’s longevity and usefulness.

AFTER A BUSHFIRE by Catherine Bird
The smoke from bushfires can lead to serious health problems for your horse. The use of herbs to support your horse’s respiratory and nervous system after smoke inhalation can have a soothing effect.

GOOD CARE OR NEGLIGENCE? Additives, drugs and ointments
by Berni Saunders
Knowing what you’re feeding or administrating to your horse is important, especially for those competing at events with recommended and compulsory medication control.

CONTROL THE ‘ENGINE’

Following on from last issue’s exercises on the ground, this time the focus is on hindquarter control, stop and go back - exercises to help create a smooth transition from ground into the saddle, for both horse and rider.
