Everything Horse Magazine August 2021 Issue 44 - Page 3

Hello Readers !

Editor ’ s



am sure I speak for all of us when I say how proud I am of Team GB , riders , horses and grooms ! They have ( and continue to , as I write this note ) battled their hearts out in Tokyo , which has been a true honour to be a part of this time around . The Olympic games have been a long time coming , and none of our team has let us down - which is a testament to not only their ability but to their love of the equine . Our Tokyo website news pages have been so busy , with the news and results published as the day ' s go by . Abby has done a fantastic job of keeping us all up to date with many exciting news stories . Next month ' s magazine will feature all the best bits of the Tokyo Olympics , including a round-up of the overall medal positions ! This month , our magazine theme focuses on young horses , with emphasis on training . So naturally , we ' ve included a selection of pieces that fit the bill nicely . Equine Behavioural Expert Loni Loftus has written a fabulous article to help us understand more about mental and physical capacity when choosing the right time to back and ride a young horse . Shane Breen , this month ' s feature interviewee , also gives his tips and advice on young horses and training , alongside answering some great questions on other matters .
Moving on slightly , showjumper and trainer Bex Mason returns with some training tips for the more established jumping horse , following her piece on starting young horses over fences last month . If you didn ' t get a chance to read it , the magazine is still available digitally on our website .
Continuing with the showjumping theme , front cover star Scott Brash MBE has chatted with us to give a great insight into his new online tool , a training platform he and his team have developed during the lockdown .
Our horse in its natural environment is still as important as the riding , and of course , plays a crucial part in welfare , health and how happy our horses are . So with this in mind , we have joined forces with Redwings to learn more about herd dynamics and how horses move in their natural environment . It ' s a fascinating piece , not to be missed . From young horse training to the equine ' s natural environment - we then turn our focus to livery yards as founder of the LiveryList ; Cheryl Johns returns with another insightful piece on the ABRS + and livery yard dynamics . The article concentrates on yard management , professional etiquette , gaps in operations , and what we can do to assist better husbandry for our horses .
As ever , I hope you enjoy this month ’ s magazine - It ’ s certainly one of my favourites this year .
Take care and stay safe .
