WHUK's Theresa McCaffrey Gives Online Horse Show a Try

Competio

In July, we tried out the new online showing app, Competio. We chose to try the showmanship class and enlisted Carin and Twinkie to enter, too.

Hay Play

Hay Play

The innovative Hay Play ball is an excellent way to keep your horse entertained and feed forage at the same time.  The ball is 43 cm in diameter; its shape means that it can be easily pushed around by your horse but at the same time it will not run away down a slope.  You simply fill it with hay or haylage and let your horse play! It can hold 3 Kg of hay so is a great way to give your horse forage and is useful for those who want to keep their horse eating but don’t want them to eat too much at once.
