Welcome to Ride!
The show that explores the fascinating bond between humans and horses all over the world. Going from the hills of New Zealand to the vineyards of Italy, or even the hot sun of Kuwait, you can expect to take a deep look into the equestrian world and the community that builds it.
Get ready to ride right into the stories of those who have found companionship in horses and discover the secrets of the equestrian world. From meeting up with athletes who share their perspective of horse sports to finding out more of how riding helps with the mental and physical health of people, FEI Rides Magazine explores the latest news in the equine industry.
On this week’s RIDE we’re in Kuwait for a look at the country’s jumping community past and present, meeting the British woodsman using logging horses to minimise his impact on the environment, making a positive difference to the lives of disabled children in New Zealand with the help of therapy horses, and aiming for Tokyo with Mexican rider Francisco Pasquel.
On this week’s RIDE we go behind the scenes with The Devil’s Horsemen - a family run company who have been providing horses & carriages for the film industry for over 30 years, we break down the art of dressage training at Australia’s Mulawa Performance, and we follow a successful rehabilitation and rehoming story at the Mare & Foal Sanctuary in England.
This week Ride celebrates the devotion of grooms working behind the scenes at the Longines FEI Jumping Nations Cup Final in Barcelona. We visit the UK’s Windrush Equestrian Foundation where legendary Eventer Pippa Funnell mentors young riders in the ways of the horse. And scale new heights in the Canadian Rockies at Mica Mountain Ranch, a place helping humans unbridle their lives and find inner peace through ponies.
This week Ride travels back in time on the UK’s waterways aboard one of the last remaining horse drawn Barges. We fly high in California with Karrie Rufer, star of the Longines FEI Jumping World Cup North American League, step out with the sure-footed shires as they “Relay” acrross rural England, and witness the spectacle that is the dancing Spanish stallions at the Royal Andalusian School in Jerez.
This week Ride celebrates three extraordinary horsewomen and the captivating connection they have with their equine friends. We showcase exhebition work from American dressage star Sabine Schut-Kery, experience life through a lens with Poland’s fine art horse photographer Katarzyna Okrzesik-Mikolajek, and witness the holistic approach to healing in South West England with renowned trainer Connie Cox.
This week Ride exercises military precision with the mounts of the Household Cavalry at the British Army’s London Barracks, and sees second chances given to troubled residents at Achterhoek horse shelter in the Netherlands. We’re in the back seat with Polish driving expert Piotr Mazurek and catch up with this year’s Longines FEI Rising Star Award winner, Germany’s Greta Busacker.
