‘One of many absolute best horses on the earth’ and different issues equestrians are speaking about

  • Britain on form

    The World Eventing Championships are under way in Pratoni del Vivaro, and Britain got off to a super start. Badminton winners Laura Collett and London 52 stormed into the lead scoring 19.3, with Yazmin Ingham on Banzai Du Loir, competing as individuals, in second on 22. Ros Canter and Lordships Graffalo, the only other British combination to have competed on day one, are in fourth place on 26.2. “I’m well aware that I’m sat on one of the very best horses in the world and people expect you to deliver – luckily he delivered,” Laura said. “I’m the luckiest person to be sat on him and he really does just keep getting better and better.”

    Listening to our horses

    The creators of a new documentary on the ridden horse pain ethogram hope it will improve horse welfare and performance, as well as horse sport’s future. The 35-minute film follows the story of showjumper Galina, owned by Lauren McMahon, who had started refusing jumps and becoming less willing to work on the flat, but was not overtly lame. Sue Dyson, who created the ethogram, said the aim is to “raise more awareness that so many of these behaviours that people accept as normal for horses are not normal”. “Pain-free horses don’t react like that,” she said.
