The Importance of Hydration


Dehydration should not just be associated with hot weather, as a horse can become dehydrated in cold weather when they tend to have less access to grass, eat more dry feeds in the form of forage and often do not like drinking water cold water as the temperatures drop.

However, it is the hot weather we are concerned about here as when the temperature rises water has an increased and very vital role in thermoregulation.  The greatest risk of dehydration is when it is hot and humid, a horse will need at least four times his usual water intake.

We asked Equine Management and Training to provide some guidance on keeping your horse hydrated. Please click here to read the full article

Moonoki proves its never too late to retrain


Until the age of 12 years Moonoki hadn't really been schooled on the bit and had certainly not entered any competitions, other than racing in point to points and under rules.

Read how at the age of 15 and in his first year of competing, Moonoki and his owner/rider Ann Wright are doing so well in dressage.  Also following a recommendation by their RoR Regional Co-ordinator Clare Poole and attending a clinic, both Ann and Moonoki have successfully entered the showing world for the first time.
