Westerman is the author of the recently released book Brother Mendel s Perfect Horse. Stallion Safe Practices Guidelines In the interests of public safety Equestrian Australia (EA), with the assistance of the National Sport Committees, has developed the following Stallion Safe Practice Guidelines for the management of stallions at competitions and public venues. EA requests that all Australian events running under Equestrian Australia and FEI rules, make the use of the horse and float Stallion Identification Discs compulsory effective as of 01 January 2011 (see point 1 of the guidelines). Equestrian Australia also recommends events and organisations adopt the following set of guidelines for the handling of stallions. Stallions should wear official discs at all times whilst at the venue. These discs are to be worn on both sides of head collars and bridles or on some part of the horse on both sides to identify to others that the horse is a stallion. No stallion is to be moved around a venue without displaying the stallion discs and a suitable restraint. The restraint can be a bridle, a rearing bit or a chain lead rein over the nose or under the jaw. Where possible all stallions are to be stabled. If suitable stabling is not available stallions need to wear a collar, which is securely tied to the outside of a truck or trailer. Stallions tied to the outside of a truck or trailer MUST be supervised at all times. Stallions may be substituted in prize-giving ceremonies with another horse should the rider deem it to be safer. It is recommended that riders and handlers of stallions at shows be over the age of 17 years; however, it is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to understand the full code of conduct for stallions at events. With the exception of rule in the Show Horse Rules and Guidelines, stallions are not permitted in Show Horse classes at EA State or Championship events. All riders/handlers under the age of 17 years must be supervised by an adult/parent/guardian whilst at the event. It is the stallion owner s/rider s responsibility to ensure that all possible safety precautions are taken. Floats/Trucks that transport stallions should display the official magnet giving notice that there is a stallion on board. These guidelines are consistent with Equestrian Australia's focus on improving safety by identifying risks and putting in place measures to mitigate those risks. Stallion identification packs are available for purchase from the Equestrian Australia National Office (only the approved discs will be permitted). The packs consist of: 2 x magnets for trucks/trailers2 x halter discs (as per point 1 of the guidelines) 2 x bridle discs (as per point 1 of the guidelines) 2 x saddlecloth discs. (As per point 1 of the guidelines) The packs cost $40.00 each including GST. If you wish to order the packs you can use the EA Stock Order form available on this website.

Huge Lipizzaner Event in Budapest Sept 2011 Last weekend people were looking at the great Lipizzaner horses of Állami Ménesgazdaság Szilvásvárad (State Stud of Szilvásvárad, Hungary) in the middle of Budapest! The biggest horse event in Hungary took place in the Hero's square from the 16th-19th of September. The Stud gave a show every day in the event: Biga driving (roman chariot race), liberty training, riding and driving Carousel, and the lovely mares in the herd...huge success for the breed! With thanks to Marie-Francoise Le Page of the French Lipizzan Association. - O - Theadorosta-54, at nearly 2 ½, still in Holland. Thea was bred out of Elite breeding mare Theoda 58 (Piber) by Maestoso X Mahonia. Bred by the Fulmer Rise Stud, she will come to Australia in the future., WA NEWS Anna Melton and 274 Favory Pallavicina II Tim Anna Melton specializes in Bridle-less training this is interesting! This colt is three years and one month old. Clearly he has a highly trainable temperament, but he is also maturing and much of his behavior is very stallion-like. Anna has put a great deal of groundwork training into him. Just letting you know that I rode Timmy for the first time last week. I only got bucked a few times and managed to stay on. Apart from that he was a pretty cool little customer :) Attached is a picture of his first trot - looking pretty relaxed. We ventured out to the arena the next day and he managed to take everything in his stride. Lipizzaner Association (Australasia) The West Side!!!

Moving forward we are required to approach the following grounds and request additional programs to be added; 1. Royal Show 2. Pinjarra 3. State Equestrian Centre 4. Gosnells 5. Bunbury Should you have any contact details for the above locations please contact Carol. We will start to put together a WA based contact list. SPONSORSHIP To hold the classes at any event we require sponsorship to fund the event. 1. The LAA commits to $50 per event 2. Additional funds required can be shared if no other sponsorship can be found CLASSES When approaching different grounds/ association we need to be clear about the specific classes we want. 1. Lead in Pure bred (all gender) 2. Ridden Pure bred (all gender) 3. Lead in Part bred (all gender) 4. Ridden Part bred (all gender) LIPIZZANER PROFILE PAGE We would like to see the whole Australasia Lipizzaner Association come together to form a detailed database of all members. An individual Profile Page! 1. Name of Horse 2. Pedigree chart 3. Picture 4. Contact/ Owner 5. Breeder details 6. Up and coming blog sections LIPIZZANER ASSOCIATION WEBSITE To include this Profile Page of each member the website may need to be developed. If this is not possible, then perhaps we can utilize a suitable social network site to include a profile and stay connected. The reason for this is to promote our horse within the country for potential breeding and also to share information and experiences. TOPICS TO BE RAISED AT THE AGM 1. Classification of Horses 2. Breeding Restrictions 3. Newsletter: WA segment and History Lessons 4. Development of Website 5. Profile Pages SHOWING STANDARDS To enable The West Side to promote the bred in the best possible way, it was agreed to conduct Mock Shows at each other s places one month before a particular show. The benefits here are predominantly to get the horse the experience required to concentrate around others in new environments and learn to stand around all day and hand out! This alone is worth the exercise! However, it appears we all have different strengths we can bring to the table and share, make the Westside Team a force to be reckoned with! From here we can develop the team and organise ride outs, demo s, information seminars etc WA NEWS Members & their Horses Left: Favory Gigi II (100 Favory Neapolitano I Fred x 105 Gigi, is a 5 year old Purebred Lipizzaner Gelding bred by Annwn Park & proudly owned by Lesley & Will Taylor of WA. Chopin is going well under saddle, beautifully backed & trained by Lesley herself. He has a great temperament & trainability with expressive movement, not to mention he is quite tall. He will be out competing in time (Chopin is a grandson of 114 Bonita) This lovely photo of Lesley & Chopin was taken early in October 2011 Below is Annwn Park Aurora. She is the last foal from 114 Bonita & by an Andalusian stallion. Rori is also owned by Lesley & Will Taylor of WA. She is going well under saddle & has begun competing in dressage with very favourable comments from the judges. Rori has just turned 7 years of age (the below photos were taken on her 7 th birthday) & has only just begun to grey!. She is an absolutely lovely mare adored by her family. MARKETING It is important to make our presence be heard in Western Australia and promote the breed. First step would be to approach Hoofbeats for our first show and have them do an article on Lipizzaner Horses in WA! Get in contact with Dianne from Sport FM. She s very approachable and would love to promote our next breed show and get the Lipi name out there. Please put forward any other marketing idea s! This side of things can be a lot of fun!! NEWS LETTER Lets get involved. I think all of us would like to see a little WA section in the newsletter. Any other topic and handy hints should also be submitted to Georgina Beard. SADDLES Hannah will be writing a comprehensive story about her journey to finding the perfect saddle for her mare Daisy. In the meantime here are a few contacts/ styles she gave us; Sommer Savoy Flextra (traditional military saddle underneath but looks like a dressage saddle). Sommer Opus (Similar to above) Treeless Solution & Heathermoffat (New treeless saddles look sensational) Albion (Design the Spanish Riding School Saddles we can look and importing traditional gear) HANDY HINTS Magnesium Magnesium (Mg) is very often deficient in horses, and can be safely supplemented at levels of up to 25g a day (50g Magnesium Oxide). Animal Health Trust research gives a recommended RDA of 25g per day, particularly if the diet is high in calcium. Supplementation of magnesium in a deficient horse will have a huge effect on its wellbeing. Magnesium is also known to play an important part in reducing equine obesity, and can lessen the risk of laminitis in animals prone to it during periods of strong spring grass growth. When a horse with obvious signs of metabolic issues such as a fat pads on rump and shoulders and a cresty neck are fed magnesium, the crest and fat pads may start to disappear, note that it will take about 3-4 weeks before an effect is noticeable. MOTTO FOR THE MONTH The first step towards getting somewhere is to decide that you are not going to stay where you are! (by Carol Maxwell) Australia Oldest Lipizzaner Mare Celebrates her 30 th Birthday Happy 30 th Birthday 114 Bonita!! September Bonita was bred by Bent & Maryanne Christiansen of *Bibaringa Stud ACT. From their beautiful near 16hh imported Hungarian mare Conversano XX-17 & by their stallion Pluto Plutona 14 (imp Piber). She was purchased as a 2 year old by Karolly Keeves (hence she has his stud brand). 114 Bonita is the last direct descendant of her dam. Standing 15.2 ½ hh in her prime, 114 Bonita was easily one of, if not, the best mare in Australia in her time & she has left a legacy of amazing progeny & grand-progeny. We purchased 114 Bonita (with 225 Favory Bonita II at foot) in 2003 as an aged mare. Unfortunately we were only able to produce one last foal from her (AP Aurora x Andalusian) however the joy this mare has brought to us over the years has been worth more then securing that one last purebred foal from her. We were however able to secure her look alike Grand Daughter in 279 Monza & thank Louise & Hans for helping us. Bonita is to us the epitome o
