I personally think it would be a very good idea if every horse owner who lives online in forums and FB groups was given a copy of this book.
The Horse and the Law (THATL) is an Australian book written about Australian Laws and would have been written predominantly for race horse owners and breeders. However, as the law makes no distinction between racing and non racing horses it is also a useful book for domestic horse owners and breeders ... not to mention ancillary industries such as transport, vets, trainers, agistment operators etc.

I've been wanting to go bitless for ages so when NoBit Bridles sent me a bridle to try I seized the reins – so to speak – of opportunity with both hands.
Driving home from work, and very much looking forward to trying my new bridle, it occurred to me that half the reason people might not try going "bitless" is that we have a strong mental association of a bit equalling "stop". As if it is some guarantee.

Bringing a clipped horse in from Europe and with Melbourne’s legendary changeable weather in mind, I was in need of some light summer protection for my new steed.
The Caribu Eclipse 1200 Denier Rainsheets have been one of Caribu’s most popular rug designs – and they have just made it even better. Caribu has a genuine commitment to listen to their customers; the Eclipse MarkII combo has been based on what their customers want in a waterproof combo.
For my purposes I needed a lightweight waterproof rug and the Eclipse MarkII was just the ticket.

In Spring last year I went looking for a software package that would let me keep track of all the horses coming and going from my property in the upcoming breeding season.
From previous experience I knew that it can be very useful to record every event that happens with a particular horse and sometimes even more useful is to be able to keep a diary. I also like to record as much of the horse’s individual details as possible, keep the owner contact details, and add photos. Essentially I wanted a program to do it all.

This is my new product of the week because it’s super simple and will help make your horse property safer.
The product – glow discs – is so simple in design it’s almost mind boggling. Sturdy, round discs that glow in the dark which can be easily and quickly fixed to fence posts, building corners, gates and anything else you can think of.
David, of Gazer Glow Vision, tells me “they will glow all night.”

I can see that there will be a certain faction of the horse establishment that will have a problem with this book because it really delves into the arenas of new age, eastern philosophy, psychology and emotion. However, if you can in any way keep a fraction of an open mind, then you might just find there is something to be gained.
I heard someone say recently that horses spend their time together doing two things: Horses spend time together doing nothing Horses spend time together doing something
The Zen Connection With Horses covers both those things.

From going through a really mild start to the year Melbourne has suddenly plunged into chilly weather and if you’re like me, you’ve found yourself scrambling for warmer rugs for your horses. Caribu comes to the rescue!
We road tested two winter rugs this time round; the Caribu Alpine 1200 Denier Winter Combo and the Caribu Lined Canvas Rug.
