Ludger Berbaum: “We must find a balance between rules, sanctions and reality”

One of the topics on the agenda of the General Assembly of the International Club of Competitors (IJRC) in Rotterdam. Athletes became concerned about their vulnerability to the IOC sports laws regarding the detection of prohibited substances in horse blood.

Tennessee horse

46 years of torture of a unique breed of horses justified by the state.

If we look at the description of this breed, it will be said that the Tennessee Walking Horse was bred in Tennessee in the mid-1930s.

But at what cost is this spectacular gait, considered the national treasure of America ?! Continue reading

What do you think when you hear the name “Longchamp”? For example, I’m thinking about a fashion brand that has been producing stylish handbags for 70 years in a row, without losing ground.
