Financing Dressage Horses

February 9, 2020 Dressage Horse Finance

Financing the Dressage Horse in 2020, see some flash marketing schemes to generate income….big income…..from the Bank Accounts of those entering the Industry. We feel we need to warn You of the many pitfalls, taken from the hard lessons learnt from the procession of Thousands of Riders’ through our Hands. Big money horses have big flashy movement that non professionals have great difficulty in sitting. These Horses are always Warmbloods and often come from Europe or at the very least have the bloodlines of the top proven horses from abroad. To maximize their profits, the Business often promotes Foals as […]

Horse Law Australia

February 9, 2020 Equine Law Australia

In 2005, Horseproblems Australia saw the desperate need to commence an arm of the Law in this Country, to cater for Crooked Horse Sales, for back then, basically every Vet in the Country was telling every Client, “Buyer Beware” So we had meetings in Sydney, with some top Firms in each State and persuaded them to start handling these issues. Pretty soon, after we launched Horselaw Australia, others followed, including Horseforce, who I saw in the audience at Equitana, when we spoke about this. John O’Leary is a Court appointed Expert Witness, Assessor, Valuer and investigator but does not give […]

Peer Review – Equestrian Australia Code of Ethics

October 11, 2017

http://www.equestrian.org.au/sites/default/files/Equestrian_Australia_Code_of_Conduct.pdf ……… marvelous desires but sadly, only words. At the twilight of my Career, forgive me for writing Articles to give those entering the Industry, an opposing view to the norm. I have been thinking of writing such an article, to inject into Google, to warn the vulnerable, for some time, now decided by the results of a Court Case that ended just recently. THE CASE A Lady ( approaching retirement Age) decided to “give it one last shot” and came up with a Plan that “if she spends big money, she will get a good Horse”….and so it was […]

PURCHASING THE DRESSAGE HORSE

November 6, 2013

I have to a lot of Dressage Days, Club, State and National and the one thing that I notice and wonder about, is that the majority of all Riders are sitting on Horses that are less than SUITABLE for Dressage and many that can’t go on in Dressage. Further, this lack of education within the Industry, on how to buy Horses that are ‘fit for purpose’ condemns many of our Friends to a Life of Hell and of course the Owners to disappointment and frustration. How would you like being made to enter the Sydney to Surf if you weren’t […]

CROOKED VIDEO PRODUCTION

November 6, 2013

HORSES FOR SALE VIDEO CLIPS Yes, they are all the rage and everyone’s a Hollywood Producer. Billy Joel in ‘Piano Man’ said something like “There’s Paul at the Bar, he is a ‘REAL ESTATE NOVELIST” and so it is that many of the Horse Sales Video’s have become Hollywood Productions, with many interesting yet not seen by the Multitudes, techniques. I recently started Horse Purchase Assessments…..after attempting to educate through Facebook with my Quiz of the Week and getting attacked. We have now assessed 6 Potential Purchases, ranging from $$5,500 to $25,000 and found 5 out of the 6 suspect, […]

RISK MANAGEMENT & THE LAW

November 6, 2013

  Since this Site Pioneered Horselaw in this Country, 18Years ago, many things have improved but they still have a long way to go. I coined this quote. “Horsemanship – the Art of reading the future, with ‘Risk Management’ in Mind” 25th Nov, 2017 Here we are, last Saturday, Dressage…… The Trailer Car Park is not the place to re-educate an 18 Hands Warmblood that is threating to Bolt!!!!! Equestrian Australia has failed in Risk Management Education and failed on upholding the worthless ‘Code of Ethics” Since September 11th, Risk Management Insurance has been basically impossible to obtain for the […]
