In the past, we have frequently covered the topic: caring for athletes – especially our four-legged athletes. The things we covered in the past were nice and “clean” things such as equine physiotherapy or rehabilitation centres. This time, however, we are talking about a topic many find disgusting: leeches. Julia Greb of CrossfitDogs and Horses has answered all the questions surrounding that topic.
As promised, we created a packing list for the shows. We made two versions: one for Amateur riders who travel to a show by themselves and one for entire show teams. We do know that some things might be missing – because each team is different and every rider needs different things at a show. After all, we and our horses are individuals. We do hope, however, to have covered all the important basics and we have left some margins, spaces and check boxes empty so you can individualize the packing list and add whatever you need.
Physiotherapy, APM, Bemer – in the other three parts of this series, we have introduced different forms of therapy. Now we focus on the places where all those kinds of therapy are combined: equine rehabilitation centres. We have picked out two examples to show you where and how horse get fit and healthy again and what kind of treatments and forms of therapy are used.
In our series “Caring for Athletes”, we introduce several forms of therapy that can help our equine partners. This time, we have talked to Claudia Wichtmann who is not only a long-time AQHA competitor, but also a certified APM-therapist. APM stands for Acupuncture Massage according to Penzel. Claudia explains how this can be used for horses.
It is a question that people – especially horse-addicted mothers – ask on Facebook a lot: “Where do you get show clothing for your kids? Do get something custom made or are you a DIY queen?“ We have gathered advice from designers and mothers and interviewed Nadine Aberle who has recently founded a store for children’s show clothing.
