Money makes the World go round

I still remember the first FEI World Endurance Championship 1998 in Dubai. At that time, so to speak, the world was still in order, the ride led through picturesque desert landscapes, the US-American Valery Kanavy won on High Winds Jedi with an average speed of 17.7 km / h, amateurs still had a real chance …

The Pity Scam

Hardly a day goes by without hearing about a few pitiable foals or yearlings who are somewhere at the butcher and have to be sold until the day after tomorrow, otherwise, they will become sausage. And yes, there is also a whole range of Arabian horses among them, from different sources, some with very good …

The Responsibility of the Breeder

For quite some years, genetic tests for congenital diseases such as Cerebellar Abiotrophy (CA) and Severe Combined Immunodeficiency (SCID) are available. Much educational work was undertaken, to explain the inheritance of this trait to the breeders and to give advise on how to avoid an affected foal. Also thanks to these genetic tests, the witch …

Better Late than Never

The Spirits that I called!

For days now, we are haunted by photos and videos of an American “wonder foal” on social media and the world wide web, whose head is highly acclaimed by the one and supposedly worth 7 million dollars, and is branded by the others as Hunchback of Notre Dame, as a malformation.

The Power of the Judges

Dear Judges, I am writing you this Open Letter to ask you: “Where do you see our breed and the show scene in – say – five to ten years from now? And are you aware that it is YOU who determines the path?”

Are you aware that every time you give a score, you …
