Animal Health Trust vet champions ridden horse welfare with new video series

Animal Health Trust vet champions ridden horse welfare with new video series

The AHT's, Dr Sue Dyson, is playing a leading role in a series of new educational videos aimed at helping riders, owners, trainers and vets to recognise musculoskeletal pain and subtle lameness sooner. Dr Dyson, Head of Clinical Orthopaedics, believes that the videos are a valuable learning tool to help improve the welfare and performance of the ridden horse. 

Recognising Subtle Lameness is a four-part video series that is being rolled out over a couple of months. The series has been produced by the US's popular evidence-based online educational resource Equitopia, in conjunction with Padma Video. It has enabled Dr Dyson to bring to life the key findings of her studies to help to engage her target audience – anyone who is involved with horses.  

The videos give the viewer clear, practical guidance on how to pinpoint the notoriously elusive common culprit for poor performance and behavioural issues: pain.  In addition to focussing on Dr Dyson and her work, the series harnesses the knowledge of renowned equestrian experts including equine veterinary behavioural medicine specialist Jeannine Berger, Saddle Research Trust founder, Anne Bondi; Concordia Connection founder, Milly Shand; equine veterinary surgeon and horse training and rehabilitation specialist Karin Liebbrandt; and eventing coach, author and bridle designer William Micklem.

Together they deliver a crisp, concise perspective on the many variable factors associated with pain-induced lameness including primary musculoskeletal pain, tack induced pain or rider induced pain. 

Video 1 explains the familiar indicators of lameness before revealing pain's less obvious signs such as facial expressions and behaviour. 

Video 2 outlines a protocol for establishing the main sources of underlying pain associated with subtle or obvious lameness in horses. 

Video 3 shows how to recognise the facial expressions of a horse in pain. 

Video 4, to be released later in June 2018, covers aspects of the rehabilitation of a lame horse. 

As a rider to top national level in both show jumping and eventing, as a trainer and as an equine orthopaedic specialist Dr Dyson has, over many years, repeatedly observed behavioural adaptations to lameness. Such adaptations were seen in ridden horses and improved, but were not necessarily completely abolished, by the resolution of lameness by diagnostic analgesia. These experiences were the inspiration for her substantial work on the behavioural signs of pain, which includes an ethogram for facial expressions in ridden horses as a first step toward assessing pain other than through obvious gait changes. 

Dr Dyson said: "Quite simply, a pain-free horse will perform so much better. These videos should help riders, owners, trainers and vets understand what the horse is actually trying to say. We owe it to them to listen."

Welfare awards celebrate healthy and happy horses at Appleby Horse Fair

Redwings has been instrumental in ensuring the health and happiness of horses at Europe's largest horse fair for over a decade. Here's how:

Appleby Horse Fair

Redwings' vets and field officers have become a part of the scenery at Appleby Horse Fair. The historic event has attracted thousands of Gypsies and Travellers with their horses for centuries, and the tradition of trading and enjoying horses makes Appleby an important cultural event.

Increasingly, horses are being brought to the Fair for leisure rather than for trade and the vast majority are there as part of a traditional family holiday. Hundreds of horses are seen over the three days being driven and ridden around the town, washed in the river and exercised to show them off to onlookers.

Our service at the Fair

We have been attending the Appleby Horse Fair for over 10 years and as part of an RSPCA led project, our vets provide a vital service to fair-goers including emergency veterinary treatment and health advice as well as  providing support to RSPCA officers in assessing the needs of animals who may be injured, stray or abandoned.

Over the years the work of the RSPCA, with the support of Redwings and other welfare charities, has led to safer swimming areas for horses, reduced obstruction for horses pulling heavy caravans and the removal of horses when needed in response to breaches of animal welfare legislation. And the presence of the RSPCA and welfare organisations is increasingly embraced by fair-goers as part of the event. 

With high numbers of horses in attendance, changeable weather conditions and increasing popularity of new visitors every year, the Fair environment can pose a risk to horses. Our vets focus on offering emergency treatment and, importantly, being a source of impartial advice to owners. Meanwhile, we also provide information and advice as part of the National Equine Welfare Council-coordinated team of education officers, particularly to children.

Promoting positive welfare

We have been keen to put more focus on the positive welfare standards that fair-goers ensure for their horses and so four years ago introduced our welfare awards. 

The vets or welfare farrier at Appleby are tasked to find their favourite horses and owners to present with a welfare award. They win a rosette, certificate, medal and membership to the Official Traditional Gypsy Cob breed association. Their photo is shared on social media for friends, family and fair-goers to give them the positive recognition they deserve.

By celebrating some of the high-quality horses and examples of good horsemanship seen at Appleby every year, we hope that fair-goers are encouraged to talk about welfare in a positive way and to set standards for others who attend the Fair. See how we awarded Best Hoof Health at last year's Fair by clicking here.

To date, almost 2,500 people follow the welfare awards' social media page, and many more are reached with posts attracting hundreds of reactions and shares. Just one post showing photos of 2017's Best at Appleby overall award-winner reached almost 43,000 people and prompted over 1,300 reactions.

Participatory video

Our welfare awards create a great opportunity for experience-sharing between welfare charities and horse owners, and opens up opportunities for positive conversations to find solutions to management issues such as fitness, farriery and feeding.

A participatory video project at last year's Fair saw winners share their own horse care advice, which in turn was shared through social media. Some of the topics included how to avoid rub wounds when driving, the consequences of using inappropriate shoes to exaggerate 'flashy' movement in the horse and driving safely at the Fair.

The above film promotes awareness of fitness considerations as well as cooling regimes. Clearly proud of his horse Henry's Ace, it was fantastic to work with Eddie who shared our values on showing younger and less experienced owners of trotting horses to take similar care and attention.

Similarly, the above film shows one of 2016's winners Layne talking through how he carefully removes the bridle of his pony, Mouse.

One of the biggest achievements of the awards is to break down some of the barriers between different horse-owning communities. Finding and celebrating common ground means everyone can be inspired to do more for horses.

The project has received press coverage from the Travellers Times, the leading online and print newspaper for Gypsy and Travellers in the UK. It has also benefitted from the support of the UK's official breed association for the Traditional Gypsy Cob, the TGCA, who sponsored the awards and offered free membership to all winners. The Participatory Video Project was implemented with thanks to CampaignFilm.

Redwings' welfare and outreach work like this project at Appleby Horse Fair are all possible thanks to kind donations from our supporters. Click here if you wish to continue to support our work by making a donation, thank you.

World Horse Welfare offers support in aftermath of Fuego volcano eruption in Guatemala

World Horse Welfare offers support in aftermath of Fuego volcano eruption in GuatemalaThe eruption has had a devastating effect on thousands of people.

Many lives have been lost and hundreds of people unaccounted for with entire settlements engulfed by lava, rocks and toxic fumes destroying homes and livelihoods.

Ash from the volcano has travelled as far as 40km and is 3-5cm deep in many communities as well as filling the air. Agriculture - which forms a huge part of the area's economy - is badly affected, as are the many working horses who are so important in transporting both goods and people.

World Horse Welfare offers support in aftermath of Fuego volcano eruption in GuatemalaThe eruption has had a devastating effect on thousands of people.

The area surrounding the Fuego volcano is home to hundreds of working horses which are depended upon for transporting goods and people. As a result of the eruption, many horses now have no choice but to eat contaminated food and many are in urgent need of veterinary care to treat eye infections and respiratory problems caused by the dust and ash.

Working with our in-country partner, SABE (a local equine welfare organisation), our project in Guatemala has been supporting horses and their owners since 2012 and many of these communities have been severely affected by the eruption.

Our team from SABE has been on the ground since Monday providing emergency veterinary treatment and supporting owners wherever possible but there is much more still to be done.

We are currently unable to access the areas worst affected by the eruption (locally known as ground zero) but as soon as it is safe to enter, the team will be moving in to provide veterinary assistance and administer vaccinations which will protect horses from the increased risk of tetanus and influenza.

Our team will be working closely with horse owners to provide training and supplies to assist in basic care such as cleaning their horses' eyes, keeping their skin clean of dust and ash to prevent sores and treating wounds to ensure they do not become infected.

EMERGENCY FUND: HELP WORKING EQUINES IN GUATEMALA

Brooke want to raise £10,000 to create a fund to help horses, donkeys and mules, their owners and families who are suffering from one of the worst natural disasters Guatemala has ever seen.?

This week the people and animals of Guatemala have suffered horrendously due to the continued eruptions of the Fuego volcano. Many have sadly passed away or are missing. We want to raise £10,000 to create a fund to help horses, donkeys and mules, their owners and families who are suffering from one of the worst natural disasters Guatemala has ever seen.

Brooke, through our partner ESAP, have worked in Guatemala to help working horses, donkeys and mules since 2006 and our team are currently on the ground working tirelessly. So far the team have been visiting the emergency shelters which have been established for both human and animal evacuees and have provided food and water to the victims. We are trying to get in touch with our team to find out how best your vital donations can be used.

During this difficult time Brooke will liaise with others on the ground in Guatemala to co-ordinate efforts effectively including World Horse Welfare.

Any donations received will enable the team to activate an emergency relief programme for the horses, donkeys and mules affected by providing food and water, emergency treatment and support to the equine owners and their families.

We will continue to bring you updates via our Facebook page as and when we receive them from our colleagues in Guatemala.  Any donations received over the £10k target will go towards Brooke's work in Guatemala.

The Donkey Sanctuary attending Spain's biggest pilgrimage festival, El Rocío. 

The rescue centre in Spain, El Refugio del Burrito, put in place a 24 hour on the ground operation to ensure animal welfare in El Rocío, the largest pilgrimage in the Western world.

This week, more than 20,000 equines will participate in El Rocío, the largest pilgrimage in the Western world. The Donkey Sanctuary Spanish base, El Refugio del Burrito (ERB), in collaboration with Spanish authorities will put in place a 24 hour on the ground operation to ensure animal welfare during the event.

With over one million participants and close to 120 brotherhoods, El Rocío is the largest pilgrimage in the Western world. The worshippers will undertake the journey to the chapel of El Rocío (Almonte, Huelva) in carts decorated with colours and ribbons and riding horses, mules and other equines. Around 20,000 animals accompanied them.

The work of ERB in the pilgrimage of El Rocío is carried out in close coordination with the Nature Protection Service of the Civil Guard (SEPRONA). A team of more than 30 people, including veterinaries, farriers and specialists in equine behaviour and care, integrate this security and assistance operation and will be in El Rocío town from the 16-22 May 2018.

Rented animals suffer the most

Most of the equines that participate in El Rocío are fit to work and have their basics needs covered, it is the rented animals that appear to suffer the most. In 2017, we assisted close to 150 animals and rescued 9 badly mistreated equines, mostly from the illegal rental business.

According to Veronica Sanchez, Director of El Refugio del Burrito (ERB): "Our team has found few cases in which privately owned animals were in bad condition, it was mostly animals for rent that got it worse. They were rented out illegally, sometimes even to minors, and then terribly abused by those renting them due to the lack of equine knowledge, irresponsibility or lack of empathy. In such a poor state was some of them that we couldn't do much except alleviating their last hours of suffering."

Animal mistreatment in el Rocio cannot be measured only by the animals deaths, as many animal welfare NGOs argue, but also and most important it should be measured by the Five Freedoms of animal welfare.

These basic freedoms are violated in many rented animals. The average age of the rented animals are around 25 years old. Equine rented business owners buy the cheapest animals which normally are in the worst conditions, then they forced them to work day and night, with little rest, food or water. Some of the animals are starving, extremely thin, full of open wounds and exhausted.

"Our expert has been constantly evaluating the state of the rented animals and if they are fit to work with the support of SEPRONA. We have been marking those animal that were not in good shape to work and asked the owners not to rent them any more. After we have been supervising that they follow our recommendations. If they don't and they rent the marked animals again, animals are confiscated and taken to a safe place and the owners are prosecuted for animal cruelty", explains Veronica Sanchez.

To avoid that, the Town Hall of Almonte (Huelva), where the pilgrimage takes place, totally ban renting animals during El Rocío. There are also laws in place to protect these animals; mistreatment is a crime for both owners and people that rent them.

Without going any further, in 2016, one rented mule collapsed in the way. The animal was around 26 years old and very thin. The team of ERB tried to do everything that was in their hands to save her, but she died. The owner and the renter have been sentenced to one year and four months in prison and three years of disqualification from working with animals for the omission of care of this mule, thus causing its death. You can check our full intervention in this video.

Collaborating with authorities

Our collaboration with Almonte Town Hall and SEPRONA is perhaps the most important change towards equine welfare at the Pilgrimage. Rosa Chaparro from El Refugio del Burrito says: "The collaboration of the SEPRONA with us has been exemplary; they were there to every request and helped promptly and efficiently. We believe things can improve greatly, and our charity strives towards making a big impact through the collaboration with authorities, brotherhoods and pilgrims. Education is another important pillar. Brotherhood and pilgrims are more and more aware of animal cruelty and most of them really reject and punish any type of mistreatment towards animals."

Collaborating with authorities

Advising equine owners and users

"As soon as owners see that we are here to help their animals in a practical way, they got on board pretty quickly. We are not here to end the tradition, but to advice and provide them with expert advice and care like putting gauze on the serrated nosebands so that open wounds could be protected. This year we have been approached by many pilgrims asking for help or support. Even some people that had rented animals were so disgusted by the state of the animals and they approached us to get help" says Coral Ruiz, Animal Welfare Advisor.

Despite the few upsetting scenes of animal neglect and cruelty from the rental business at the El Rocío Pilgrimage, Veronica Sanchez remains upbeat and positive. "Our next steps are to continue promoting animal welfare good practices around pilgrims and brotherhoods, punish the mistreatment of the animals that SEPRONA has confiscated and work with authorities to regulate in a near future the equine rented business to prevent the cruelty towards these animals. We've come away with a tremendous feeling of optimism and look forward to continue working to improve the welfare of more animals this year."

The perfect time to seed a paddock 

The perfect time to seed a paddock 

Horses are picky eaters. Offer them a paddock with a good covering of grass all over and for no apparent reason they'll still pick and choose between different areas.

It is therefore important to ensure that any area used primarily for grazing horses should be seeded at a high rate, with plenty of 'bottom' grass, to produce a dense sward capable of withstanding hard-wear.

The perfect time to seed a paddock 

It is the perfect time to seed a paddock, and Suregrow has the perfect option in their Paddock Grass Seed Mixture, designed specifically for horses.  The seed is quick to establish and provides steady growth throughout the season.

Containing a mixture of Timothy, Meadow Grass and Fescues in addition to Ryegrass, the mix can also be spread by hand.

The perfect time to seed a paddock 

Suregrow products include Suregrow Fertiliser, CSM, Paddock Grass Seed Mix, Fast Grass, Meadow and Laminitics Grass Mix.

Suregrow Paddock Grass Seed Mix is available in 10kg bags.
