YOU can make a difference for horses worldwide!
There will be a Federation Equestre Internationale (FEI) closed-door meeting to discuss the practice of hyperflexion, also known as "rollkur." This highly controversial technique is often employed at the upper levels of dressage training and involves hyperflexing the horse's neck until his chin is almost touching his chest; often the horse is forced to maintain this position for extended periods of time. Rollkur represents artificiality taken to the extreme and performance put before the good of the horse. This differs greatly from the Dressage we practice, teach and enjoy - a balanced, harmonic, and healthy way of going that is pleasing to both horse and rider, mentally, physically, and emotionally.

Convincing FEI officials to take a stand against rollkur will be a major step forward in ensuring that performance horses worldwide are being ridden and trained without force and mechanics.

Rollkur has a few passionate opponents who will be present at the FEI meeting, but they need our support to make an impression on the FEI officials. If you would like to make the world a better place for horses and humans, please add your name to one or both of the following petitions. Please feel free to forward this link with your horse-loving friends, family and neighbours. Let's show the FEI that compromising the natural dignity of the horse for the sake of competition is NOT permissible!

No-Rollkur
The signatories to this petition ask the FEI to oppose the training method of the "Rollkur"/Hyperflexion clearly and resolutely. The FEI rules are to be adapted correspondingly to ensure that in future the use of the method of the "Rollkur"/Hyperflexion will be regarded as a violation of these rules.

Register your support to ban rollkur by adding your name to a petition which will be presented by Dr. Gerd Heuschmann – veterinarian, clinician and author of the book Tug of War; Classical versus Modern Dressage.

The Diamond 7 Ranch takes pride in caring for the land, livestock and the legacy of traditional ranching in Southwestern Alberta. Raising their cattle from start to finish, Diamond 7 takes a natural approach to all that they do. From preserving the land and protecting it for generations to come, to raising cattle that freely roam on natural pastures lush in native grasses. Committed to providing a natural beef product free of hormones and antibiotics, Diamond 7 Ranch strives to deliver on Canada's global reputation for world-class beef.
At Diamond 7 Ranch,  the horse plays an integral role in this mission. Utilizing traditional practices in working with their cattle, the cowboys and cowgirls rely on a partnership built on trust and dedication to horsemanship to pull it all together.  Below is some of the beautiful Ranching country at  www.diamond7.com.  Watch for Glenn Stewart Natural Horsemanship events there in 2014!
