English Riding

English riding is a form of horse riding seen throughout the world. There are many variations, but all feature a flat English saddle without the deep seat, high back or saddle horn seen on a Western saddle nor the knee pads seen on an Australian Stock Saddle. Saddles within the various English disciplines are all designed to allow the horse the freedom to move in the optimal manner for a given task, ranging from classical dressage to horse racing. English bridles also vary in style based on discipline, but most feature some type of noseband as well as closed reins, buckled together at the ends, that prevents them from dropping on the ground if a rider becomes unseated. Clothing for riders in competition is usually based on traditional needs from which a specific style of riding developed, but most standards require, as a minimum, boots; breeches or jodhpurs; a shirt with some form of tie or stock; a hat, cap, or equestrian helmet; and a jacket. English riding is an equestrian discipline with many different ...

Manitoba Lotteries Bingos Volunteer Program Updates

http://www.mbll.ca/content/bingo-volunteer-program-funding-continue Thursday, February 16, 2017 COMMUNITY & NON-PROFIT GROUPS TO CONTINUE TO BENEFIT FROM MANITOBA LIQUOR & LOTTERIES BINGO VOLUNTEER PROGRAM Electronic bingo resulted in necessary changes to administration of the program

Funding for the Manitoba Liquor & Lotteries Bingo Volunteer Program is continuing through the 2017-18 fiscal year, with money now being provided directly to umbrella organizations who will allocate the funds for local community and non-profit organizations without the requirement of volunteer service.

"With the declining popularity of paper bingo at Winnipeg's casinos, the number of volunteers required for each bingo shift dropped over time and the requirement for volunteers has now disappeared," said Diana Soroka, Director Community Support. "Community organizations that were allocated bingos between January and March 31, 2017 were notified earlier this year that ...

EHV-1 (Neurological) Instance in Manitoba

Statement from Elder's Equine Clinic (as posted on facebook)

Equine Herpes Virus In Manitoba

We have received a number for request for information on the current state of an outbreak of EHV-1 neurological form in Manitoba. Although we are not directly dealing with the cases, we are providing support and information. Here is an update on the situation as it currently exists. The horses are quarantined on a farm where the initial cases have been identified in the Western part of the Province. The quarantine is good and is being held under the care of a veterinarian. We are assisting as needed given our experience with EHV1 and quarantine protocols from previous years. There are positive EHV-1 neurological form horses, however, the quarantine has isolated those horses and biosecurity protocols are in place. We will release some information on the condition and general biosecurity protocols that everyone can put in place shortly. The overview is: monitor your horses for fever (anything over 38.5C or ...

What is Equestrian…?

Equestrian is the encompassing term for all activity involving the horse or other equus species (eg. mule). The term equestrian describes both recreational and competitive riders, handlers, and drivers. Equestrian includes all disciplines or activities participated in whilst mounted on the horse, as well as unmounted disciplines or activities. It is the partnership of horse and human and, in some disciplines, horse to horse.

Mounted equestrian disciplines are commonly divided into two categories: English disciplines and Western disciplines. As a general rule of thumb, the classification of English or Western describes the type of “tack” (equipment) used on the horse. The type of tack used is the most easily distinguishable factor in the division of English and Western disciplines. Other disciplines that do not fall under the categories of English or Western include driving, halter (in-hand), and vaulting (gymnastics on horseback).

Certain breeds of the horse are often favored and are more ...
