This week sees the return of England’s iconic Royal International Horse Show at the All-England Showground at Hickstead for the first time since pre-pandemic, and one of our favourite classes of the week is on the schedule for tomorrow — that’s the Eventers’ Challenge class, which has taken a number of forms over the years and even involved a number of top show jumpers at one point. We’ll be bringing you coverage and snaps from the class tomorrow, but in the meantime, we’re whetting our whistles by looking back at how the class played out in 2000, when it still involved a long loop outside of the main arena. That year, it was won by a baby-faced Pippa Funnell aboard The Tourmaline Rose; this year, we’ll see Pippa return to try for the title aboard Billy Wonder. Stay tuned to find out if she can repeat the feat!
Simply put, horses need energy.
Energy is traditionally supplied by cereal grains such as oats, corn, and barley. These feedstuffs deliver energy as carbohydrates or starch. But what if you want to supply more energy to your horse without increasing the feed intake? Feeding a fat supplement is an excellent way to achieve this.
Fat is considered a source of “calm” energy and is thought to modify behavior in some horses, making them more tractable. This, in turn, allows horses to focus their energy on work rather than nervousness.
