Casper Before. All went well for the first three months then one day out of the blue he started biting at himself whilst being ridden. The first time he did it I thought he had been bitten by something as it was so violent. I got off to inspect gear and see if there were any insect bites. Nothing seemed out of the ordinary so I got back on and asked him forward, he did it again and this time it was so bad I thought he would rear if I asked him forward.


He did it the next ride so I called in the vet, chiropractor, dentist, etc. From then on it was an exhaustive and expensive investigation process. New saddle, different types of saddles, new bits, bridles, different riders, saddle cloths, riding bareback, girths, new farrier, the list was endless... I did extensive searching on the internet but couldn't find out why he did this. Read Casper's story, Casper Couldn't Canter (Can Safely Canter Now).




Casper After. The happiest part of this story is that he no longer bites at himself when being ridden... and WE CAN CANTER. We have cantered more in the past four months than we have in the four years since he was started. He just gets better with each ride. Rugging him now is not an issue, even in a storm he doesn't bat an eyelid.


All his crazy behaviours have completely gone. I can't thank Lucy Prior (Gotcha Equine) enough for the support and hand holding through this and Casper says thank you. Read Casper's story, Casper Couldn't Canter (Can Safely Canter Now).





Casper After. Then came Prep 3. This was in the indoor arena, a place he has only been once maybe twice before, probably about three years ago. He took it in his stride and we scored 57% in this test. I was so proud of his calmness, he was relaxed and happy to do as asked.


We still need work on a lot of things but I was aiming for calm and relaxed. We got both those. Casper is back in action. Without the ProVide It Plan I doubt we would have even been riding now let alone competing. He is my dream horse again. Read Casper's story, Casper Couldn't Canter (Can Safely Canter Now).







Lucky Before. Most of our troubles have been with his body, joints and lameness. Also the nervousness was a little unsettling at times, things that he had seen one hundred times before, became like the big bad monster all over again. We also went through a period where he would take off through his paddock gate, kicking up his legs which was becoming very dangerous.


He would nearly knock you over to get through the gate. I couldn't understand it as he was normally quiet, only having the occasional outburst but it was getting worse and happening more frequently. I have had many many months of Lucky being turned out because he was stiff or lame and have had every horse professional you can think of to see him. He has seen vets, chiropractors, masseurs, farriers and the amount of money paid out for results that didn't last was unbelievable.

Lucky After. My lovely boy is now back into training and we are going to our first western show in eleven months in November. To finish off I just want to say when you have the dosage right DO NOT change it. Lucky had his dose rate cut back recently and within two days was short stepping and looking uncomfortable in the back end.


I went back to the normal rate and all was great. He is on the full ProVide It Plan. So I am very happy, my Lucky has gone from near retirement to full enjoyment and I am over the moon. Read Lucky's story, Lucky's Story - Time to Retire a Gentleman?






Prudence Before. Des noticed her mare Prudence starting to get stiffer in her gate, not wanting to walk down hills, spooking at nothing, swishing her tail a lot in discomfort and then became reluctant to strike off into canter, particularly on the left lead. As you will see in this video, Des is having to put a lot of pressure on her mare just to keep her moving forward.

Read Prudence story, Work In Progress.











Prudence After. After approximately two weeks on the Gotcha Feed Plan, Des started to notice improvements in Prudence. Slowly over the following six months she could see her moving out much better, not swishing her tail as much, happier to walk down hills and no where near as spooky.


You can see in this video Prudence is even willing to pop into canter on her own without lots of pressure from Des. Notice in this video Des is not carrying a whip as in the 'before' video.

Head flicking and head shaking syndrome in horses. Pictured left is a horse showing signs of head flicking/head shaking syndrome. NB. It is important to note that not all horses flick the same way. For some it looks more like a nodding, others it will appear like they have just got some sort of shock and jerk their head up whilst some will only do it under saddle or when they get warmed up in work.

Thunderstorm Asthma

ABC's Catalyst - Thunderstorm Asthma. "Cenk Suphioglu identified the role Rye Grass plays in Melbourne's thunderstorm asthma epidemics. You can see the anther popped out to release the pollen, so on days like this, during hay-fever season, they actually pop out and they release the pollen which gets picked up by winds and taken for long distances. In fact, during a thunderstorm, half a tonne of pollen per hectare can take flight. But while it may inflict hay-fever in urban areas, something else is needed to trigger thunderstorm asthma. So what are these smaller particles and how are they released into the air? Cenk's team answered that by studying what happened when Rye Grass pollen was exposed to the moisture in thunderstorms."
