Caring for your horse after strenuous exercise - blog by Emma Stewart, International eventing groom

This could count for anything like endurance - fun rides - cross country - galloping etx

For my example I will tell you what we do after a horse has ran cross country at an international event and the following morning.

With eventing horses in the cross country faze the horses can gallop anywhere between 5-12 minutes .. It all depends on the level and the format - CIC competitions are shorter than CCI ones..

For the most competitions there is always a place after the finish line where there is waiting a vet and there is also water for...

British Eventing 2017 Arena Eventing Championships - blog by Olivia Mossman

Earlier in the month Pebbles and I qualified at Dallas Burston and on 11th March I competed in my first National Arena Eventing Final Championships at Aston-Le–Walls.  Pebbles and I came 10th after jumping a double clear, in the 80cm.


Pebbles has always been quite pacy so I was very aware of keeping her steady, a bit too much this time.  A great day out and thanks to BE for organising this pre-season series.  We were delighted with our 10th position in our...

 With Spring not too far away, whether it’s dressage, showjumping, eventing or showing it is important to have a good training routine to make sure your horse is able to perform their best on the day.

Customer review of the Eqclusive Dark Bay / Black Pack

Victoria sent us a lovely review of her Eqclusive Dark Bay / Black Pack. The review is only after one use.

"Used my birthday spends to buy a pack of Eqclusive brushes and oh my wow they arrived today and are fantastic. A horse on the mend from liver problems, left with a dull flaky malting coat for the last few weeks, I cannot believe the before and after photos from just one use today! My shiny bay is back!

The dull flat coat was a result of the liver problems and I had been brushing giving good...

To The Champs and Beyond - blog by Olivia Mossman

This month I have been competing my 13-year-old Skewbald pony Pebbles in the new BE Arena BE80 Eventing Series which now allows 11 year old competitors for the first time.  Dallas Burston was our second competition after Onley Grounds where I had come 8th. We'd jumped a clear round but were too fast - Pebbles loves to go for it! Getting a steady speed is the challenge on her.

 

When we arrived, I started to get a little nervous as there were so many grown ups taking part and I’m just 11.  My Mum convinced me that it would...
