Trainers helping trainers – that is the concept of a new project called „Young Trainer Cooperation“ founded by Alexandra Morocutti from Austria. We talked to her to find out what it is all about.
Here, we post all the foals of 2023. If you want your foal to be featured, feel free to send in a message on Facebook, Instagram or an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. If your foal is for sale, make sure to check out our sales ad options.
Just like in the years before, we will list everyone who offers banding and braiding at European Western shows in 2022.
Hier listen wir wie jedes Jahr die Leute auf, die Banding und Braiding auf den Westernturnieren in Europa anbieten.
A two-day trip, lots of paperwork and a totally unknown venue – Avril Wilson and Georgina Allsopp risked a lot when they planned their trip to Q22 for Avril to show her gelding Zips Last Encore. In the end, however, it was the kind of stuff that good stories are made of: All the hard work and effort paid off and Avril was the last one standing in the line-up of the Amateur Western Horsemanship finals. We asked the newly-crowned Int. DQHA Champion about her exciting journey.
Since it’s World Mental Health Day, we decided to feature a guest contribution by Dóra Göcze who is not only a horse trainer and multiple APHA European Champion but also a mental trainer.
Recently, a follower asked us how Amateur riders prepare for the Q22, the International DQHA Championship. We asked seven Amateur riders who are in different stages of their Amateur career – some are showing L1 and L3, one shows EWD, some show young horses – and those are their answers.
Breeding season is in full swing. Foals are born, mares are brought to the breeding station and semen is collected. For each and every task there is someone to take it, whether it’s a vet, the mare or stallion owner. It was only a few weeks ago, that we witnessed a conversation where someone thought of buying a colt and standing him as a stud in the future – and we were wondering: What are the tasks of a stallion owner? We asked four breeders from our industry who own stallions who have a lot in common – but also some main differences.
Being a newcomer at a show can be confusing at times, but just as exciting – however, once you might have gotten the feeling that you got the hang of this showing things, you are not Novice eligible anymore and face a whole lot of different challenges. In this article, we will discuss stepping up your game as you step from the L1 classes into the L3 classes – which means that you might have to face harder pattern and a tougher crowd of competitors. We talked to three exhibitors who told us how they handled that change.
Pictured here are the 2022 foals born in Europe.
