How tapeworms affect your horse and what to do about them

Most horses in the UK have some level of worm infection, but how we manage their parasite challenge is critical to health and performance. Gone are the days of routinely administering dewormers and hoping for the best. That strategy has caused widespread resistance in worms – meaning that worms are able to survive the killing effects of dewormers and persist after treatment, which can lead to disease and in worst cases, death. To reduce the risk of further resistance occurring, we need to ensure that dewormers are only used when they are genuinely needed.

In Dr Corrine Austin’s article in our March edition she will help you with strategies for managing tapeworm infections in horses

Gaby Lucas Talks Leg Yielding

In our September issue we talk to Equithème sponsored International dressage rider Gaby Lucas, on developing leg yielding with a young horse.

Suffolk based Gaby, has a wealth of experience competing for Great Britain in the Pony, Junior and Young Rider European Championships and is now progressing up the levels in her dressage career.

Leg yielding can help to develop your horse’s lateral suppleness and is one of the most basic of lateral movements. The movement is particularly useful to young horses, helping them to develop their ability to move away from the leg effectively whilst ensuring that the rider uses the correct aids and leg positioning to influence the horse.

See September edition for full on-page tutorial.

Mycotoxins under the Microscope

Mycotoxins can occur on growing, harvested or stored cereal and forage crops. Invisible to the naked eye, these toxic chemicals are produced by some types of mould growth under certain environmental conditions. One of the key difficulties in identifying risk is that mycotoxins can be present in feed or forage without the presence of mould.

Alltech will explain more in our September edition about how you can combat mycotoxins.
