Presentations & Videos


Over many years, lectures have been delivered at various events which have been appreciated.

Stride decided to redo these lectures and present them in a video format for interested individuals to download and view. It has also been decided that a value should be placed on these videos but that all proceeds will be going to Equine Welfare charities. In the event that you wish to consider this, please review the introduction to the lecture by clicking on the premium content link below the presentation description  – and then decide whether you wish to download that lecture, at which point you will be requested to make a contribution of a R100 to a charity. 

We hope that these contributions will be recognised as an attempt to share useful information to horse owners and at the same time make a contribution to Equine Welfare.

Thank you for your support.
