Horses and Climate Change

Have you thought about the impact of Climate Change on your  horse and his environment?  HorseSA facilitated a very informative workshop 2012, this was published (link is below). There was also an article about it in the RIRDC Newsletter (link below also).  As time goes on there will be much more to come on the subject – some links are below.

Impact of Climate Change on Horses – Melissa Rebbeck 2012

Two wonderful little books with heaps of info – In the shop for just $14

Two fantastic publications by Marg Richardson (www.thefunctionalhoof.com) and Jen Clingly (www.wildabouthooves.com.au).

The Bare Facts – is packed with information on the horse, the environment and feed – as we know unless the movement, feed and environment is right, your horse will struggle to get the hoof he needs.  This little book gives you ideas and suggestions to help you get the balance right.

Founder Facts – is helpful for the owner/carer of suffering horses.  This book needed to happen.  So enlighten yourself with the information packed in this little book.

The books are just $14 for the pair from the shop.  Proceeds from the sale of the books will be directed back to the authors so they can continue to bring us informative helpful information! Purchase here

Host a trimming workshop in your area

Workshops are held where the demand is. Get a group of interested people together and host one in your area.  We can provide you with posters and flyers to assist you in getting enough people together to hold the workshop.

This is what we need to run a workshop:-

  • 12 – 20 people
  • Room large enough for participants for theory presentation (powerpoint presentation)
  • Access to tea and coffee making facilities and toilets
  • Covered outside area (in case weather turns bad when we are trimming cadaver legs)
  • Up to 8 horses for demonstrations
  • Cadaver legs (We can arrange these if needed)

Email us if you would like further information.
