Columbus State University has formed a new eventing team. The team will operate out of Poplar Place Farm in Georgia. This is great news for the ever-growing Intercollegiate Eventing League, and hopefully is the sign of more teams to form in the near future. [Columbus State Eventing Team]

Dressage rider Andreas Helgstrand is under the microscope after some questionable photos surfaced recently. Epona.tv released some images of Andreas riding Akeem Foldage at an Open House event recently in which the horse’s tongue is blue. A veterinarian was sent to check the health of the horse, and a following press release said that the findings pointed to incorrect use of equipment and/or aids. [Helgstrand Under Fire]

There can never be enough safety tips for trailering your precious cargo. The Horse has published a helpful article with tips on everything from recommended trailer types to how to deal with emergencies on the road. [Trailering Tips]

Cavalor Feed for Thought: Herbal treatments for ulcers. Gastric ulcers are a pesky problem that give many a horse owner headaches. How about herbal treatments for this issue? Cavalor goes more in depth with research on this long-used technique, including details on how ginger, chamomile, and quercetin are highly useful. [Cavalor Feed for Thought]
