Spring 2017 has sprung! Let’s hope for us at HorseWyse HQ that with the coming of spring comes the spring rain!
Fabulous photos everyone, Trudy certainly had her work cut out for her. The standards were so high and we receive many, many entries as part of the inaugural photo comp! Remember that if we didn’t manage to feature your photo here you can send in photos anytime! firstname.lastname@example.org is where it is at! Paddock photos, pet photos, funny photos and photos for the caption comp, we love them all.
The t-shirt competition is back and this time sponsored by Filly & Co who will recreate the winning design onto your very own t-shirt! How cool is that! Other great prizes up for grabs….this was so popular last year and the designs were simply stunning.
Not only do you have a chance to WIN some Cavallo boots on page 21 but in conjunction with The World’s Best Hoof Oil we are looking for a sponsor rider. Starting in NSW, check out the Pony Club pages to see what you need to do, to become a NSW pin up for barefoot!
This issue also welcomes Equestrian Australia, a regular feature with some of the latest behind the scenes news and spotlight stories.
Speaking of spotlight stories, we caught up with Grand Prix dressage rider, gorgeous Emma Weinert, bright young star, Lily Godding who just loves Working Equitation and Matt Burns in the pursuit of Sport Horse Racing!
Handy tips in tie up and stand up from Stephen Halfpenny is a necessary basic that we all need to instill for safe handling of our horses.
Champagne anyone? That’s the feature colour this issue thanks to Breyer. Also find out the who and how these fabulous Breyer models come to life, with Breyer model maker, Brigitte Eberl.
Fabulous warm up exercises for you as well why and how horses exercise.
It’s a wrap….the latest thoughts on bandages and some clear steps on how to do it just right! Amanda our guest vet always makes it very clear and straight forward.
On the bright side, Annie gets us ready for spring by showing us all how to make a pretty flower browband. Don’t forget to send in a pic of your attempt!
Crunchtime Capers is always a winner and Hannah explores free jumping and how to get you started. We all know how much Crunch loves to jump!
Something personally close to my heart is charity. So I have introduced a new ambassador role for HorseWyse magazine. Called HW Horsey Helpers, the first ambassador is the lovely and charitable LILY WARD! Give her a hand……as she does her best for others.
So enjoy spring and enjoy the spring issue with lots of great articles and all the usual favourites.
