THE ROLE OF FASCIA IN THE HORSE
by Kaye Meynell with Dr Kerry Ridgeway

With the newly gained understanding of Fascia - the connective tissue that envelopes muscle, bone, organs and other soft tissue in the horse’s body - a completely different concept of how the horse’s anatomy works is required.

MINIMISING SCARS by Kaye Meynell
Part of the healing of any injury, whether it be a wound, muscle damage,
tendon or ligament, involves the formation of scar tissue. The way scar
tissue develops can reduce the function of that particular tissue and adjacent tissue, putting pressure on nerves and ultimately resulting in a horse that is unbalanced, has a shortened stride, has a reduced range of motion in a joint, or is in pain.

WHAT IS RELAXATION?
by Sarah Warne

Horses do not learn when they are mentally stressed, which presents a problem in training, therefore it is important for riders to recognise signs of stress and what relaxation technique works best for their horse.

Born from humble and harsh origins the Australian Stock Horse has emerged as a breed well respected around the world. Known for its hardiness, courage and sensibility the modern day breed guidelines suggest the Stock Horse should be between 14-16 hands, with a wide forehead,
clean gullet, good length of rein, sloping shoulder, muscled hindquarters, hindlegs set well under them and hard feet.

While the first horses in Australia were in New South Wales, hence the name Waler, the horses travelled with the explorers and settlers wherever they roamed. It was not until 1971 that the Australian Stock Horse
Registry was formed in Tamworth, with 100 members, where the early registrations were mostly of horses that excelled in stock work. Today, the breed is recognised world wide.
