    A Year of Lottie (almost!)

    I have tried lots of things and settled on Equine 74 Gastric and Equishure. The Equine 74 was on vet recommendation and really helped till Spring grass caused a flare up. So then I added in Equishure which is one of the few products to stay intact till it gets to the hindgut where it can then...

    A Year of Lottie (almost!)

    Must be! Lottie comes from Lot53 and an adaption of Lotte as she is half German. As am I! Once the name popped into my head it felt perfect.

    WHY.....

    that happened in the 80’s!! Towerlands Anglezarke comes to mind. I think it was the rise of pay to view and a gazillion channels meant it was inevitably going to end up on a subscription channel. The coverage is very good though if you do subscribe.

    The Brigante Cup 2022

    Yes that is the bit that really appeals to me. So exciting! I might just squeeze in this year 🙏🙏 but I’ll try again next year anyway.

    The Brigante Cup 2022

    I'm so sad/obsessional that I have cross referenced everyone on the start list with last year's table to see how far down people got invited to compete. 102 people qualified. I am currently number 83 with one more event to go. Arghhhhh

    A Year of Lottie (almost!)

    I can't believe how quickly our anniversary has come around. She arrived while I was on holiday and I met her nearly 3 weeks later on August 20th 2021. She was and remains defensive and easily upset, but despite all the threatening face pulling and the dramatic reactions to raised hands or...

    Events running today in the heat!

    Commercial transporters may have multiple horses on board and be travelling for very long journeys in varying styles of vehicle. So yes it's a useful guidline, but does not mean it is always unsafe to travel at over 30 degrees under different conditions. Eg a 45 minute journey with one horse on...

    Mine too. Lottie was tied up next to the trailer in shade from the Neighbour’s lorry till the sun was overhead, then it was cooler in the trailer which was in full sun with all doors open for the breeze

    The Brigante Cup 2022

    Thanks but that’s a shame 😟 Why have a table at all then if those scores are meaningless! Ah well, next year.

    Events running today in the heat!

    They are more usual than they used to be! It's been very hot on and off all summer. My sister worked in Marysville and was there and lost friends in the fires. So we are sadly familiar with the devastation caused by wildfires and it's really scary to think that this is now an issue for our damp...

    Events running today in the heat!

    It was an event that ran yesterday. Max temp at the hottest part of the day was 31 degrees according to both the met office and my car thermometer. Low humidity, reasonable breeze.

    That's exactly how it should be - assess the conditions locally and make the call. In my view events should really only cancel if conditions exeed safety limits as set out in risk assessments/ BE or FEI guidelines etc. If conditions are within the evidence based safety limits then it becomes the...
