How rid­ers af­fect the way horses move

WOW Sad­dles, one of the spon­sors of Your Horse Live, will be shar­ing the re­sults of its re­cent pres­sure test tri­als that prove the im­pact we have on our horses’ way of go­ing. This is sure to be a thought­pro­vok­ing talk and one not to miss. It will also high­light the im­por­tance of hav­ing a cor­rectly fit­ted sad­dle that is com­fort­able for both you and your horse.

An au­di­ence with…

Through­out the week­end you’ll have the chance to quiz the celebri­ties star­ring at this year’s show. If you’ve al­ways wanted to ask showjumper Ge­off Billing­ton a ques­tion, or maybe you’d like some ad­vice from event­ing leg­end Mary King, this is your op­por­tu­nity to ask them. You could even ask Span­ish Rid­ing School supremo Flo­rian Bacher what it’s like to train with Carl Hester and Char­lotte Du­jardin! There’ll be dif­fer­ent pan­els of celebri­ties over the three days of the show, so get think­ing about the ques­tions you’ve al­ways wanted to know the an­swers to.

Complementary ther­apy

Make sure you plan in time to at­tend one of our vet talks with Anna Hon­ner BVetMed MRCVS, from 608 Equine & Farm vets, who will dis­cuss the ben­e­fits of equine acupunc­ture. This is the tra­di­tional Chi­nese ther­apy that places thin nee­dles into cer­tain points of a horse’s body and can have great ef­fects.
