Stolen miniature horses: Seven found, one still missing

Miniature horse BarbieAll of the horses and foals except for Barbie (above) have been found

Seven of the eight miniature horses and foals stolen when thieves cut through an electric fence have been found.

The five horses - the largest of which is about 0.8m (2ft 8in) in height - and three foals were taken on 13 July from a field near March, Cambridgeshire.

Two were found in Christchurch on Tuesday and five in a field near Beck Row travellers' site in Suffolk on Wednesday, police said.

However, a palomino mare, Barbie, is still missing.

No-one has been arrested in connection with the thefts and inquiries are continuing, Cambridgeshire Police said.

Thieves cut through a 12,000-volt fence at the house in Stonea to take the animals, which owners Daniel and Jo Everett had bred for showing.

Miniature horses and foal The couple had 30 horses and foals in the field

Horse and foalThe youngest foal was taken without its mother

The couple were involved in rescuing some of the animals with police on Tuesday.

"We got a phone call from the police that they had eyes on our horses and to be on stand by," Mrs Everett said.

When they got to the field, she said the "mares were tied with seatbelts around their necks and two had no access to water".

The animals were rounded up and taken back to the stables.

Miniature foalThree-month-old foal Farada was "lethargic and disorientated" when returned,
her owners said

Seven of the eight horses and foals are now home, but all are "thin, dehydrated and confused", she said.

One also has a leg wound which is being treated with antibiotics.

The couple have appealed for the return of mare Barbie, but praised officers involved in the investigation.

"There was a huge police presence. They were amazing and two had come in on their own holiday time," Mrs Everett said.

Maureen Comber continues fight to remove fencing on Broxhead Common

Maureen Comber

Maureen Comber has made an application to Hampshire County Council, to correct mistakes made by them at the time of the Commons Registration Act 1965. The aim is to restore to the register of common land, the 80 acres of Broxhead Common enclosed by an unlawful fence as long ago as 1963.

This area was mistakenly excluded from the register by HCC circa 1980, after an appeal by Mr Whitfield was dismissed by the Court of Appeal in 1978,

The High Court had confirmed the 1974 Final decision of the Chief Commons Commissioner in 1977.

The Court of Appeal had also affirmed the Chief Commons Commissioner's decision. Maureen has studied and spent many hours research, as well as consulting experts in the field,since 2011, when after a Public Inquiry with regard to a claim for a Bridleway to link BW54 to Cradle lane, her barrister advised her to look more closely into the strange events which appeared to surround the registration of Broxhead Common.

Maureen hopes that the public, who have been deprived of their rights of access over the land for more than 50 years, will once more regain use and enjoyment to the whole of the common. In addition the Rights of the commoners must be restored and the unlawful fences removed.

Who said it was safe to walk along that bridleway?

British Equestrian Federation Chief Executive quits after clashes with Member groups 

Ockham Fire 4

Statement by the Chair of the BEF, Joanne Shaw

It is with great regret that I can confirm that Clare Salmon has resigned from her position as Chief Executive and will be leaving the British Equestrian Federation.

I should like to thank Clare for her outstanding contribution to the BEF during the last year. Her leadership and vision for an inclusive, accessible and sustainable future for equestrianism were warmly welcomed and supported by the board.  In particular, Clare was the driving force in reshaping the World Class Programme to ensure the confidence of our funding partners in granting ongoing funds.

In resigning, Clare has raised significant and serious concerns about culture, governance and the interaction of some of the Member Bodies. The board considers that there are legitimate questions to be answered so is commissioning an independent investigation, on which we will report in due course. 

The board intends to take this opportunity not only to update our structure and processes to ensure that we are fully compliant with the UK Sport and Sport England Governance code, but also to review our cultural values and behaviour in the interests of a stronger Federation as a whole.

Both our funding bodies are aware of the situation. In the meantime we have asked Sarah Bunting, the BEF's Head of Finance, to take over the role of accountable officer for the purpose of our funding.  The board will be considering the process to put an interim CEO in place until Clare's replacement is recruited.

There is a clear priority for the board to work with the Members' Council to deliver the governance changes required by UK Sport and Sport England by 31 October 2017.  We remain confident that commitment remains high and we will be successful.

I have every confidence in the abilities and professional skills of the BEF executive and staff team to continue their day-to-day work in the best interests of equestrianism. We are also fortunate to have a strong World Class Programme team in place, doing a great job for our athletes as they represent Great Britain.

Statement by the Chairs and Chief Executives of British Dressage, British Eventing, British Showjumping, The British Horse Society and The Pony Club

British Dressage, British Eventing, British Showjumping, The British Horse Society and The Pony Club

In response to the statement issued by the BEF Board yesterday, we would like to provide some clarification on the position of the Founding Members of the Federation.

Last week, prior to the BEF Council Meeting on Wednesday 12 July, the Chairs and CEOs of British Dressage, British Eventing, British Showjumping and The British Horse Society, as well as the Chair of The Pony Club, acting as a collective and at our request, met with the Board of the BEF to share our serious concerns about the leadership of the BEF, along with the way that the proposed changes in governance, strategy and structure of the Federation were being managed.

At the conclusion of the meeting we agreed not to make any external statements due to the sensitivity of the situation, and until the Board were in a position to reflect and to make their own decisions at their Board Meeting this week on Wednesday 19 July, which we have rightly respected. On Thursday 13 July the BEF Chief Executive released an inflammatory statement by email and on Thursday 20 July the Chair of the BEF Board confirmed that the BEF CEO had left the Federation. In light of the gravity and significance of the issues we raised with the BEF Board ten days ago, we agree that this was the correct course of action.

We also welcome and endorse the Board's decision to announce an independent investigation into the serious concerns we expressed about the leadership of the Federation. We would like to reassure our key stakeholders within the equestrian community, as well as our funding partners and other external stakeholders, that we continue to have excellent working relationships with Board Directors, the Executive Team and all staff at operational level within the BEF, and have total confidence in the new World Class structure, under the guidance of our new Performance Director, to deliver future success.

We will be working closely with our fellow member bodies and the senior team within the BEF to develop a new governance model that ensures we are fully compliant with the new Code For Sports Governance issued by UK Sport and Sport England. All member bodies of the BEF are very much aligned and fully committed to agreeing a structure and strategy that satisfies all the requirements set out by our funding partners, as well as delivering a healthy and sustainable future for the Federation.

To this end, various options have been proposed and these were reviewed, discussed and debated at the Council Meeting on 12 July. This included representation from UK Sport, who provided helpful input and guidance on the different governance models available. Subsequent to this meeting we have developed and refined a single option that we feel will meet the needs of all member bodies within the Federation. We are working effectively in collaboration to revise our governance so that it is fit for purpose, has clarity over strategic direction and is future-proofed. This is not only to meet all UK Sport / Sport England objectives within the required timeframe, but to ensure that we have a structure that serves all member bodies effectively, within one united Federation, for the benefit of the whole equestrian community.

As was discussed on the 12th, a governance steering group has been established to develop this detail and manage the transition. We are confident that we will meet the key milestones, including the Council AGM on 13 September, when the new governance structure will need to be approved, and that this will be delivered by 31 October to meet the deadline set by UK Sport. We are now confident, at last, that we will be able to move forward collectively and positively during this transition period to have the right governance, strategy and structure in place to meet the long term needs of all member bodies and equestrian sport.

Owner fined after he left donkeys to suffer because he failed to trim their hooves

Owner fined after he left donkeys to suffer because he failed to trim their hooves

A man who failed to trim his donkeys' overgrown hooves, leading three of them to suffer in pain, has been fined by magistrates.

James Derek Pickford  of Lowe Hill, in Leek, Staffordshire, was found guilty of causing unnecessary suffering to three donkeys and failing to meet the needs of seven donkeys following a trial at North Staffordshire Justice Centre this week.

The court heard that the RSPCA had been in contact with Pickford before, and had given advice and warning notices on a number of occasions regarding his donkeys' overgrown hooves, however the problem continued.

Hannah Bryer, senior welfare adviser at The Donkey Sanctuary said: 'Owning donkeys can be a hugely rewarding experience and a wonderful privilege, however they require caring and compassionate management to ensure they lead healthy and enriched lives.

Owner fined after he left donkeys to suffer because he failed to trim their hooves

'The seven donkeys in this case had significantly overgrown and imbalanced hooves. These changes caused undue stresses and strains on the joints and soft tissues of the limb. Three of the donkeys were suffering chronic pain as a result.

'This suffering could have been easily avoided with proper and routine farrier care. Despite being easy to remedy, lack of appropriate hoof care remains one of the most common welfare issues faced by donkeys in Great Britain today.

'When the donkeys came into our care last May we found out that five of them were in foal. Since then we have worked closely with a vet and farrier to ensure they were ready to welcome five healthy foals into the world.

Owner fined after he left donkeys to suffer because he failed to trim their hooves

'We are grateful to the RSPCA, World Horse Welfare, Staffordshire Police, and North Staffordshire Council for their efforts in this case and are pleased to able to provide these donkeys with a safe and secure future.'

Inspector Charlotte Melvin said: 'Their hooves were x-rayed and these x-rays showed that three of the donkeys were suffering from a great deal of pain, as their pedal bone - one of the bones in their feet - had rotated as a result. This would have made them very uncomfortable and led to suffering.

"Equines require a lot of specialist care and it is important to remember that people who have animals have a responsibility to look after them properly, and ensure they receive the proper veterinary treatment and care when they need it.'

Owner fined after he left donkeys to suffer because he failed to trim their hooves

Magistrates ordered Pickford to pay £2,250 in costs, a £240 fine and a £30 victim surcharge.

The donkeys are now in the care of The Donkey Sanctuary.

Fundraising campaign launched to buy Cooley Rorkes Drift

Jonty Evans riding Cooley Rorkes DriftJonty Evans came ninth at the Rio Olympic Games riding the horse

A three-day event rider has launched a fundraising campaign to buy the horse he rode at the Rio Olympics in 2016.

Jonty Evans needs to raise £550,000 to buy Cooley Rorkes Drift after its owner put the horse up for sale.

Evans finished ninth in Rio, representing Ireland, and wants to compete in the European championships next month in Poland.

He said it would be "amazing" to win a medal on "the people's horse".

Mr Evans, from Andoversford in Gloucestershire, has trained and ridden the 11-year-old for the past six years.

'Heartbreaking'

The value of Cooley Rorkes Drift has risen due to its recent success and its owner now wants to sell him. Mr Evans has been given first-refusal to buy the horse.

"By virtue of the performances the horse has been very widely touted as one of the best event horses in the world, and unfortunately with that comes interest from wealthy people who can afford to buy the horse and take him away from me," he said.

He added it was "heartbreaking" to think all the "hard work could go somewhere else".

"We're a small team. We work so, so hard. We've put so much time and effort into it."

"If we could raise this money he would essentially become the people's horse," Mr Evans added.

"If he could stay with me and we could win a medal, and win it with the help of the public, it would just be amazing."

More than £80,000 has so far been raised in the first three days of the fundraising campaign.

"The man at the council offices in the Isle of Wight said that if they stopped adopting/resurfacing bridle paths, the council would need to close down that department" - Tony Barnett

Road safety

Gary Foggon eager to raise awareness with horse owners and riders - after being involved in an accident

Gary Foggon eager to raise awareness with horse owners and riders - after being involved in an accident

Following a recent collision with a car, leading rider Gary Foggon wants to raise awareness with other horse owners and riders with regards to road safety issues.

On a recent sunny morning ride Gary had been enjoying a pleasant hack on his event horse Charlie. Suddenly, he felt Charlie's legs giving way beneath him, and he quickly realised that a car had collided into the back of them.

Gary and Charlie both fell to the floor and Charlie started galloping off in a blind panic. Fortunately, Charlie responded to Gary's voice and therefore calmed down.

This has prompted Black Country Saddles sponsored rider Gary to take the opportunity to promote road safety issues for all when out riding.

Said Gary: "I would urge all riders to wear appropriate safety clothing even on a hot sunny day.  This accident was really traumatic and obviously upsetting and you always have to consider the possibility of serious injury or indeed permanent damage to yourself or your horse.

"Our roads are usually wide enough for horses to share with cars, but tolerance and understanding on both sides is always an absolute necessity.

"I would encourage all riders to learn basic first aid for both horse and rider.

Gary Foggon eager to raise awareness with horse owners and riders - after being involved in an accident

"I would also recommend that riders carry a mobile phone with them, should they need to use it in an emergency and it is useful to carry written contact details of who can be contacted in an emergency."

Horses are powerful animals that are easily frightened and can panic, especially near fast-moving traffic.

Horse riders should obviously be conversant with the Highway Code – as should motorists of course.

This is a subject that attracts a lot of on-going debate though the ultimate aim is for all those using the roads to be able to do so safely.

It is now 1112 days since the BHS shamefully dismissed Maureen Comber after more than 50-years of dedicated and hard-working service.

Maureen ComberStill no regret.

Still no sympathy.

Still no apology.

What is more they have still not paid her back the outstanding money they owe her.

How long can the BHS continue to behave in this disgraceful manner?

Zoetis Helps improve welfare of More Than 500 Horses

Zoetis Helps improve welfare of More Than 500 Horses

Zoetis has helped more than 500 horses by providing worming advice as part of a UK equine healthcare and castration project.

Members of the Zoetis UK equine team joined volunteers from BEVA and a number of equine welfare charities to attend special clinics around the UK over the past two years, in areas identified as having high numbers of horses that may benefit from additional support.

Wormers were prescribed and administered by vets as part of a responsible worming programme. In addition attending vets provided a castration service to help reduce unwanted breeding and improve welfare. Horses were also given microchips and passports to help with identification and traceability. The sessions have been instrumental in improving relationships with horse owning communities, giving them an approachable source of practical veterinary care and advice.

Penny McCann, equine product manager at Zoetis said: "We are very proud to support these very worthwhile and well-organised clinics. Several different members of our equine team have attended over the past couple of years and have really enjoyed volunteering their time and knowledge to help make a real difference."

Says Bryony Dickens

Great picture! :-) Here are 3 different suggestions:

- Pressure from the outside leg behind the girth can cause the horse to spook left, shoot forward and the unwary rider to wobble and topple to the right!

- Alternative routes with varying degrees of difficulty are offered at the quarry complex.

- Visitors at the arboretum follow the signs to see a rare specimen of an Arrow tree.
