    Livery Yard Dynamics

    It’s sill I have engaged in the past. arranged yard outings, clinics, travelled others on my lorry. I don’t have the time or resources for this now, and it’s reflected in my yard ‘status’. Those who help the yard manager are also given heightened status. I have no capacity these days to meet...

    Livery Yard Dynamics

    I feel you! I’ve been top of the in crowd when I had a posh lorry, organised clinics, won lots of things and had lessons with Olympians who liked my horse. 🤣 Life changes, but I’m still the same person and my boy is still here, albeit semi-retired after surgeries. It does hurt sometimes (that...

    Livery Yard Dynamics

    A musing! Do you ever sometimes feel like you’re a spare part, or third wheel on your livery yard? Like you don’t really belong to a particular group, you’re not particularly close to anyone. That you find you just have to get on with things by yourself, because you’re not so popular, don’t get...

    How far do you travel to your yard?

    How far do you travel to your yard?

    Hey there, I should have said - this would be for full livery for two horses. Hey there, I should have said - this would be for full livery for two horses. You honestly didn’t mind the drive? This would be my worry, as I’m used to having them so close. I’m now full time working from home, so I...

    How far do you travel to your yard?

    Hi All, Obviously not aimed at those who keep their horses at home, but for those who travel, how far/how long is it to get there? My current yard is a mile away from my house. I’ve previously driven to a yard 20 minutes away. I think my limit would be 40 minutes, provided the facilities were up...

    Advice please. I ordered a pair of made to measure boots in early March last year. A present to myself after a good result at the winter regionals. Paid £570. So....the zips on said boots were faulty and failed on three occasions on the left boot when trying them on at the shop on...

    Dressage Horses - Astrid Bolton???

    Hi - I posted the comments about the list of vets five years ago, when I had limited knowledge of AB Sporthorses. All true, but in no way negative - it was the policy at the time, but not sure about now. Since then I have met, watched, seen possibly hundreds of horses from her yard out on the...

    Overreach & Bruised Heel

    My boy took a slice out of his heel bulb after hoollying around in the field on Thursday when a low flying helicopter spooked him. He took a slice out of his off-fore. Because it was a thin flap of skin, I've cut the piece off, cleaned it thoroughly and poulticed it. It's clean now, so I've...

    horseless and keeping involved?

    Same. Making a conscious effort to sort it though, or there's no point having him! Diggerbez, they needed writers at the recent BD regionals @ Myerscough and for the forthcoming Premier League this week. x
