Calculation of horse prices: example U.A.E.

Sunday, June 8th, 2014

What do I mean with “a horse that is reasonable priced” (locally sold in the U.A.E.) =   Mix the following: age, rideability, training level, talent and show experience. (assuming all offered horses have no vices and are sound)   A 7 yr old horse that is showing 1.30 and has potential for 1.50 is […]

horse slaughter update

Wednesday, February 13th, 2013

Apparently in the last 3 weeks, ever since the “horse meat in beef products scandal” the British have become very interested and hungry for horse meat, sales have gone up 50%! LOL and on top Gordon Ramsey is promoting it, as tastier, and much leaner than beef. well well well 🙂 I think in a […]

horse healers

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2013

Today I was once again amazed by the eagerness of some horse owners: willing to believe anything a “specialist” (in this case a kind of healer) is saying about the condition of their horse! hands hoovering above the horse’s back, the horse “communicating” to the healer that he or she is still a bit sore […]

Equine Heat Stress

Saturday, December 1st, 2012

By Clare Sapire   We may tend to forget that a lot of the horses that are here in the U.A.E. are imported and once here take a long time to settle into the weather. Dubai also doesn’t have the freezing cold temperatures in winter , yes temperatures may drop over night but during the […]

Ambitious Dressage Ladies

Tuesday, June 21st, 2011

This week it happened again. A dressage lady calls with the following question: “Can we find her a nice 4th level or higher dressage horse, suitable for a 1st level amateur lady rider, with a budget of  $60K.” Of course we can! We watch the video she sent us of herself riding, remember the extra […]

Helmets

Monday, June 13th, 2011

What I do not get is: “why riders do not wear helmets?” I honestly do not get it. I read through the websites that list all the lame excuses, like http://horses.about.com/od/choosingandusingtack/tp/Why-People-Don-t-Wear-Hemets.htm and I still cannot understand why someone would choose looks (helmet hair) over safety and reducing the risk for brain injury or death. Last […]

Daughters and Ponies

Sunday, June 5th, 2011

So here I am, mom of three with two beautiful young daughters and a toddler boy. It had never crossed my mind that my girls would not be as totally horse minded as I am. Growing up in New England I took them to the barn on a daily basis, they’d help me muck and […]
