Rescued donkey's former owner is prosecuted

Rescued donkey's former owner is prosecuted

The former owner of a donkey, who is now safely in the care of Redwings, has been disqualified from keeping equines for three years following a prosecution by the RSPCA.

Poor Dotty was rescued by the RSPCA in February 2018 from a site in Essex having been discovered with overgrown hooves which were causing her extreme pain. She was taken to veterinary practice House & Jackson for immediate treatment and then transferred to nearby Ada Cole Visitor Centre to continue her recovery.

The man pleaded guilty to failing to meet the welfare needs of a donkey by not ensuring the animal was protected from pain, suffering, injury and disease by not providing adequate hoof care. He was sentenced at Chelmsford Magistrates' Court in September and was fined £307, and ordered to pay £300 court costs and a victim surcharge.

Redwings has now pledged Dotty a safe, forever home at the Sanctuary.

Rescued donkey's former owner is prosecuted

Speaking after the case, Senior Welfare Officer Jo Franklin, said: "It's so frustrating to see a case like Dotty's whose suffering could have been easily prevented with some basic care. Thanks to with regular foot trims, Dotty is no longer in pain and can happily run around in her paddock with her new friends at Redwings Ada Cole.

"Now, having been offered a new home at the Sanctuary, she'll receive all the care she needs for the rest of her life. She is such a friendly donkey and our visitors have already loved getting to know her."

RSPCA Inspector Lucy Brennan, said: "This poor donkey appeared to be in an extreme amount of pain due to her overgrown hooves which made walking uncomfortable. Her suffering could have been so easily avoided if she had been cared for properly and had seen the farrier regularly.

"Anyone who owns an animal, no matter how many, has a legal responsibility to care for that animal and to ensure that they do not suffer unnecessarily.

"Anyone who keeps a donkey should ensure that they have the knowledge and commitment to care for them properly, and should understand their needs are different to those of horses. We are pleased that Dotty has now been given a loving new home with Redwings."

You can visit Dotty for free at Redwings Ada Cole, near Harlow, Essex (EN9 2DH) every Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday, 10am to 4pm.

Tim Stockdale dies of cancer

Tim Stockdale dies of cancer

It is with great sorrow that British Showjumping share the sad news of the passing of former British Showjumping Olympian Tim Stockdale at the age of 54 years from Roade in Northamptonshire.  Tim's death comes after a short battle with cancer having been diagnosed early October.

Tim, who was the highest placed Brit riding Corlato at the Beijing Olympic Games in 2008, represented Great Britain on more than fifty Nations Cup teams as well as the World Equestrian Games in 2002 and the European Championships in 2009. 

 His wins both nationally and internationally were immense with one of the most meaningful to him being when he won the King George V Gold Cup at the Royal International Horse Show in 2010 with Kalico Bay, owned by long term supporters and family friends Ann & Colin Garratt.

Alltech ® - Signs of Old Age

Alltech ® - Signs of Old AgeA horse or pony would normally be classed as a veteran once they reach the age of 15, however with advances in veterinary care and better education, horses and particularly ponies are living much healthier, active lives well beyond this milestone.

Some horses will start to display the signs of old age much earlier than others.

So, what are the signs to look out for that age is catching up with your horse, indicating they might need a little extra support?

Cheers as huntsman cleared of hunting illegally with Quantock Staghounds

Cheers as huntsman cleared of hunting illegally with Quantock Staghounds

A WEST Bagborough man has been cleared of illegally hunting a deer with hounds on the Quantock Hills.

Richard Down, 54, of West Bagborough near Taunton appeared a Taunton Magistrates Court  accused of hunting a red deer with dogs, on January 20, on the Quantocks Hills, Bridgwater with no class exemptions under the Hunting Act 2004.

Mr Down, a member of the Quantock Staghounds, was found not guilty with Judge David Taylor saying the evidence presented by the Crown Prosecution Service was 'circumstantial'.

The evidence presented included footage obtained by two conservation and investigation officers from The League Against Cruel Sports which they argued showed red deer being hunted by a pack of hounds being led by Mr Down.

However in the witness box Mr Down insisted this was a trail hunt using 15 hounds, and that at one stage the hounds were 'rioting' in other words 'chasing something they should not have been chasing'.

Mr Down said that it was an unusual occurrence and that when it happened he called the hounds back.

Asked under cross-examination "Were you hunting an identified mammal that day?", Mr Down replied: "Definitely not."

The court also heard from Quantock Staghounds member Elizabeth Gibbons who said she had laid the trail for the hunt that day.

Under cross-examination it was put to her that no trail was laid that day and that it was a 'cover-up' which Mrs Gibbons denied.

Alistair Haggerty, presenting the case for the Crown Prosecution Service said: "The defendant was clearly on the Quantocks that day to hunt."

Defending Mr Down, Peter Glenser QC said: "Mr Down was aware he had members of the public and members of anti-hunt campaign groups watching him that day.

"To behave in the way the prosecution is saying would have been reckless and ridiculous and to behave in such a flagrantly unlawful way does not make any sense at all."

Delivering his verdict, Judge Taylor emphasised that it was the job of the prosecution to make him sure of the defendant's guilt, and said he felt this was a 'circumstantial case'.

"This is not an exercise in judging whether the practice of hunting is right or wrong, it is to apply the law to determine whether unlawful hunting took place," Judge Taylor said.

"I am entirely unsatisfied that Richard Down was intentionally hunting in breach of the Hunting Act 2004 on that day."

Judge Taylor found the defendant not guilty.

Following the case there was a cheer from a number of hunt supporters gathered in the public gallery at Taunton Magistrates Court.

A second defendant Martin Watts, 55, of Washford, had his case thrown out by the judge.

The BHS and Maureen Comber

How the BHS treats somebody who has been a loyal, dedicated and hard-working member for over 50 years.

DAY 1601

It is now 1601 days since the BHS shamefully dismissed Maureen Comber after more than 50-years of dedicated and hard-working service.

Maureen ComberStill no regret.

Still no sympathy.

Still no apology.

What is more they have still not paid her back the outstanding money they owe her.

How long can the BHS continue to behave in this disgraceful manner?

Other hard-working BHS members and volunteers beware. This is obviously the way you are going to be treated one day.

Everyone must take the responsibility and time to improve equine welfare

Everyone must take the responsibility and time to improve equine welfare

"Everyone must take the responsibility and time to improve equine welfare," was the take home message from World Horse Welfare Chief Executive, Roly Owers, speaking at the charity's 2018 Annual Conference which took place in London.

A diverse range of speakers from across the international equine sector discussed and debated the topic of 'Changing Times' at the event which was attended by around 400 guests and hosted at the Royal Geographical Society.

Roly began the day's proceedings by focusing on a number of ways to cope with and make the most of the changing times affecting the equine sector in the UK and around the world. He said:

"We need to reach out to the world to better understand the horse-human partnership and to appreciate its relevance, its importance and its benefit to society. We must strive to make what was once impossible, possible.  We have seen how technology and the wider political, economic, and social environment is in flux, reshaping and tearing down some boundaries whilst creating others.  But if we aim high, and we work together as one, I believe that we can change the world for equines."

Executive Director of Animal Nepal, Utam Kaphle, then spoke about the charity's partnership work with World Horse Welfare which uses the approach of helping people in order to help their working horses. He said:

"By reaching out to the whole community, we address various aspects of livelihoods which all have a direct impact on the welfare of the horses. By improving the socio-economic situation of the community through income generation training which helps communities to find alternative sources of income, reducing the workload for the equines and increasing income which not only benefits families but also benefits their animals."

Olympic dressage rider and World Horse Welfare Trustee, Richard Davison, then turned the focus towards equestrian sport – the good, the bad and the ugly – looking at how rules and sanctions protect welfare in the sport world. He questioned the media's presentation and coverage of sanctions and also discussed new research and approaches to training methods. He concluded:

"There is endless protection from regulations. We don't need more regulations; we just need them to be clear, unambiguous and relevant to modern times and current knowledge. And if you do seek rule amendments, then do it through the correct process by lobbying your national federation."

Andrea Betteridge, Founder of the Traditional Gypsy Cob Association (TGCA) spoke about the organisation's work to raise the status and standard of the breed type and the importance of promoting their versatility. She said:

"If an animal has a job, it has a value. We have to think of what they can do and put disciplines in place to showcase cobs' adaptability, plus give something for everyone to do and compete – regardless of their level. We need to give a cob a job."

Next up was former MP, Tim Collins, who gave his perspective on Brexit and what it could mean for the equine sector. He gave three key take home messages on the subject, urging listeners to take a stand and let their voices be heard through campaigning. He highlighted what he considers to be the most pressing welfare concern with Brexit, saying:

"Border control and waiting times at borders for animals being both imported and exported needs to be the main focus of our campaigning. For me, this will have the biggest impact on animal welfare and must be addressed."

Joe Saxton, Founder and Driver of Ideas at nfpSynergy, spoke on the volatile nature of trust in charities, highlighting the constantly changing levels of trust in different areas of the charity sector. He said:

"Charities must be professional and responsible, but must not appear too professional or they risk alienating their supporters."

A discussion panel of five renowned vets: Julian Rishworth, Ebony Escalona, Gemma Pearson, Sarah Coombs and Ben Mayes, tackled a number of issues including the topical debate about rider weight, the unique role of vets in enhancing equine welfare through working with their clients, the challenges presented by hard to reach communities and the developments in understanding of equine behaviour which raise the question of how we define modern horsemanship.

Finally, the day concluded with World Horse Welfare President, HRH The Princess Royal giving her thoughts on the different presentations and topics. She questioned how the equine sector can deal with change and the huge number of influences which are driving changes. She said:

"Is all change progress? Technology has connected us to huge amounts of knowledge and information – but how do we know there is wisdom behind that knowledge?"

The Princess Royal also spoke about the responsibility which owners take on when they decide to purchase, loan or rehome a horse. She said:

"As an owner you have a 24 hour responsibility for your animal's welfare. Not a responsibility which depends on how interested you feel or how busy you are from one day to the next. One key thing that struck me from all of today's presentations is time. We might be more time poor now but spending time and patience is essential in training our animals. A quick fix is not effective or sustainable.

"Working from an evidence-base, responsibility and time are all themes which have been highlighted today and I hope we all take home thoughts which will help us deal with these changing times."

World Horse Welfare Chief Executive, Roly Owers, closed the conference saying:

"To be able to change, we have to be prepared to change, but need to base change on common sense, experience and evidence."

Groom of the Year 2038

3-Year-Old Girl Gives Pony Shower In The Bathroom,
By Herself

Groom of the Year 2038

Harriet, 3, felt that a comforting, warm shower was overdue for her Shetland pony – so she opted to take him indoors for one, instead.

via Bigwnews; Mother catches teeny tot "sneaking" pony into the house for bath-time and cracks up of laughter

In the below video, the toddler can be witnessed grasping a shower head and spraying water on her pony, who is tied to – a toilet roll holder! Following that, Harriet gives him a mellow pat down with a towel.

"Harriet, did you bring the pony upstairs? Her mom asks. in the footage. "Yes!" The pony-doting toddler emphatically replied.

"What are you doing?" Her mother furthered queried. "I'm giving him a bath!" Harriet nervelessly countered.

The film was taped in Northwich, Cheshire, in northwest England.

Comparative to their size, the Shetland pony is regarded as the strongest Equid in existence. Shetlands can haul twice their own weight, giving them nearly twice the power of most heavy horses. They arose in the unforgiving climate of the Shetland Islands, north far of the Scottish mainland.

Shetlands' size range from a minimum height of roughly 28 inches to an official max height of 42 inches. Registered stock must not surpass 42 inches 10.2 hands at the withers. As a result of their regal outer appearance, Shetland ponies are utilized for pleasure and too in the show ring being exhibited ridden, in hand and in harness at shows all across the UK.

WORLD HORSE WELFARE ANNOUNCED AS OFFICIAL CHARITY OF ROYAL WINDSOR HORSE SHOW 2019

WORLD HORSE WELFARE ANNOUNCED AS OFFICIAL CHARITY OF ROYAL WINDSOR HORSE SHOW 2019

World Horse Welfare, a UK-based charity that improves the lives of horses in the UK and around the world through education, campaigning and hands-on-care, has been announced as the Official Charity for Royal Windsor Horse Show 2019, which will take place in the private grounds of Windsor Castle from the 8-12 May.

Founded in 1927, World Horse Welfare has been operating for over 90 years. Its vision is for a world where every horse is treated with respect, compassion and understanding, which they aim to achieve through working with horses, horse owners, communities, organisations and governments to help improve welfare standards and stamp out suffering in the UK and worldwide.

With several well-known patrons within both the media and the equestrian scene, including: BBC broadcaster and keen rider, Sara Cox; 2006 Sports Personality of the Year, Zara Tindall MBE; and Pippa Funnell MBE, World Horse Welfare has the support of both professional and amateur riders.

Within the UK, World Horse Welfare is the largest horse rescue and rehoming charity. At its four Rescue and Rehoming Centres, horses receive specialist care and rehabilitation in order to restore them to full health. Once the rehabilitation stage is complete, World Horse Welfare then looks to rehome each horse, whether that be as a treasured companion, competition or leisure horse, or anything in-between.

World Horse Welfare's international programme aims to alleviate the suffering of working horses and improve human livelihoods by sharing essential knowledge with horse owning communities in the developing world. Working with local partner organisations in 16 countries across Latin America and the Caribbean, Africa and Asia, the charity currently runs 17 projects within horse-owning communities, giving owners the knowledge and skills to empower them to care for their horses and so better protect the health and welfare of their most important asset.

World Horse Welfare Chief Executive, Roly Owers, said: "We are thrilled to be chosen as the Official Charity of Royal Windsor Horse Show 2019 and are grateful to the organisers for giving us this unique opportunity. This is a truly legendary event covering such a wide spectrum of the horse world, which chimes so well with the breadth of World Horse Welfare's work.

"Intense planning is already underway on a whole host of engaging activities to showcase our work to both new and existing supporters, including a display featuring World Horse Welfare horses and ponies and a new horse sculpture trail, which we look forward to announcing details about very soon."

Show director, Simon Brooks-Ward added: "World Horse Welfare has fulfilled a vast amount of incredible work for the equestrian world, through education, and also rehoming horses. As a Show which celebrates equestrianism, it is a very fitting partnership, and we are excited for the road ahead."

NEW High Grip Leather Saddle 

NEW High Grip Leather Saddle 

New to the Amerigo range is the fabulous option of having a saddle created from high 'Grip Leather', hardwearing, stronger and more versatile leather ideal for riders looking for that extra grip, close feel and support in the saddle.

Amerigo saddles are appreciated for their technical design, comfort and precision fitting, ensuring riders are provided with the very best to compete at the highest level.

The perfect compromise between calfskin and plain or printed leather, the 'Grip Leather' does not require reinforcement on the flap and also allows for the padding on the skirt/jockey flap to be reduced, giving a less bulky finish.

Every Amerigo saddle is individually made and combines traditional methods of saddle making with the highest quality materials, including naturally tanned leather.

The 'Grip Leather' is available on a variety of saddles including the Pasubio Siena Pinerolo Saddle. The seat and kneepads are still made with calfskin leather as usual.
