What a start to winter! In many areas where farms have yet to dry out from our wet summer, it has undoubtedly been a challenge!
Hopefully, this issue will brighten your spirits. My team has sat down with accomplished riders, trainers, and industry experts, capturing their wisdom and experiences. These engaging conversations will give you a glimpse into their lives, shedding light on their training methodologies, the challenges they've overcome, and the profound connections they've forged with their horses. Be prepared to be inspired, motivated, and armed with a treasure trove of knowledge to apply to your equestrian pursuits.
Our cover story features Phillip Steiner and his multi-talented family as Phillip headed off to the FEI Longines World Cup Final in Omaha, USA, with Cassina Dior. What a thrill for New Zealand to watch this combination make the final! Diana Dobson caught up with Phillip after the event to find out what makes him tick.
We delve into the impact of respiratory issues such as allergies and infections, which, together with fitness training and nutrition, can significantly impact a horse's health and performance. By understanding how these factors affect our horses, we can make informed decisions to create an optimal living environment supporting lung function.
We also address a common concern facing horse owners - lumps and bumps. It is only natural for us to be attentive to changes in our horses. Still, by familiarising ourselves with the diverse array of lumps and bumps that can affect horses, we can better assess the urgency and appropriate course of action for each situation. Our article offers practical advice on monitoring, evaluating, and seeking veterinary assistance when necessary, ensuring the well-being of our equine partners.
As the publisher, I am incredibly grateful for the contributions of our talented team (especially our editor, who was struck down by Covid!) and the generosity of the equestrian community, who have shared their expertise and stories with us, Through their dedication and passion, we can bring you a magazine that informs, inspires, and connects our community.
Thank you for your continued support. I hope our interviews, training and health articles will serve as valuable resources on your equestrian journey.
Until next time, happy riding.
