So what’s new on the market to help with this issue?

REALLY FED UP WITH HORSE FLIES?

Then look towards the H-Trap horsefly trap manufactured by Sentomol. The company had superb trading month in June and has now restocked its supplies for the rest of the summer months. The company, which specialises in pesticide free pest management, sells the H-Trap as well as a range of glue traps to help control fly pests around animals and their owners.

ICE, ICE, BABY

FMBs Therapy Systems’ Managing Director, Serena Hickson, talks to Eventing Worldwide about when and why to apply cold therapy, and what this does to the horse’s body.

This is a tried and trusted method of helping the horse recover after exercise and injury, but do you know why it works? Cold therapy is very popular. It’s available to everyone, no ... Read More
