What is Normal?
Do you know what a healthy horse's vital signs should be?
Temperature: 37-38°C in the morning, below 38.5°C in the evening. Slightly higher in warm weather or in foals.
Pulse: 36-48 beats per minute.
Capillary refill time: 1-2 seconds, gums pink.
Respiration: 6-8 breaths per minute.
Intestinal Sounds: Gurgles, squeaks and rasps from intestinal area behind rib cage. You can hear them with your ear.
If you are concerned in any way about your horse's health, contact your veterinarian for advice/assistance!
Is your horse protected?....
As horse owners we all want to do what is best for our horses. If your horse has not been vaccinated against Tetanus, he/she is at risk. Any wound (even small, seemingly insignificant ones) can be potentially fatal if your horse contracts tetanus. Check out the website link below for more information about Tetanus and vaccinations against it:
If you have any concerns or to find out more, speak to your equine vet.
What's inside your horse?
When was the last time your horse or pony was wormed? Don't forget that intestinal parasites place a huge burden on you equine's digestive system and overall health. Horses with large worm burdens often suffer from malnutrition, poor coats, gastric ulcers, colic & even death!
There are a huge number of different worming products available, from daily food additives, natural remedies, drenches & pastes. If you are not sure about your horse's worm status or you have questions about your worming regime,
contact your equine veterinarian for advice. A fresh sample of manure should be checked by your vet (for a minimal fee) and will determine if your current worming regime is working effectively.

APEC was founded on a "member-focused" philosophy, and the committee is keen to continue this.
However, we do not have a crystal ball to tell us what you - our members - are thinking.
So if you have feedback, suggestions, ideas or any skills and knowledge you would like to share please contact us at
Input from non-riders and social members is welcome
and they are encouraged to attend APEC events and help out where they can
We are a social riding club and encourage everybody to have a good time with their horses and ponies
APEC offer very affordable membership
As a not-for-profit club we only charge enough to cover costs
Please See Our Membership/Waiver Forms Page For 2018 Fees Due 1/1/2018
After careful consideration the APEC Committee have decided to freeze the cost of membership for the second year running
Fees will remain locked at the 2017 prices
With the increase in the cost of living, we are hoping that this will be an incentive for more people to join our club as members
From 1/1/17 APEC members will be required to wear helmets
Compliant with Australian Standards
(All EA Approved helmets accepted)
Be no older than 5 years old
Not been involved in an accident
APEC will accept receipts for Australian standard compliant helmets as commencement date
and suggests you scan/copy your receipt for this purpose as the original will fade over time
We are now on Facebook!
