    Rosette making business- advice please!

    My mum used to be a riding instructor, and had a few horses who she used to teach on from home. Every year, for the handful of people she used to teach, we held a 'Halloween' show for. This involved dressing up the fences with pumpkins etc. We struggles for ages and ages to find Halloween...

    Woukd you tow in this?

    How far are you going? If it's not too far and you can stick to a slow speed i would go... However you also have to think about the winds whilst your riding, will your horse be ok to compete if it's really windy and the school rattles a lot? As others have said, wait and see nearer the...

    Shwmae horse products

    The pic of the grey horse in red good is my friend; I thought it looked far too close to his eyes... She ordered that in the discount sale in December and it arrived beginning of jan, so very quick turn around! Bexcy-bee x

    Can I take my food and leave?

    If it's cheaper to move with food, why not buy some bags and then you can move straight away? That won't be much over £20 for food, and a couple of hay bales you could get for £10 to get you going, which would stop hassle from current YO and stop new yard charging too much? Bexcy-bee x

    zipless long boots?

    I LOVE my ariat bromonts, zip up the back that broke from my fat calves, wrote an email complaining and hey presto, brand new boots back with super super strong zips included. Fantastic customer services, and my boots were 2 years old and used daily! It happened to 2 pairs of them, and they...

    Opinions on a horse??

    I like her, a lot! If I was on the look out to buy one, she would probably be in my yard. If I'm right in thinking, correct shoeing can help with dishing, and as others have said, more developed muscle and I don't think it would be that obvious. If you have the time and money to put in to...

    Stiffness when schooling

    No one else rides her but me, excluding the odd hack once every 6 weeks or so, so it's definitely not that! Lol Thanks for this, I will continue with what I'm doing. Her lateral work leaves a lot to be desired, so don't think that would help too much at the moment, though I will give it a...

    Stiffness when schooling

    The mare I share is really stiff on her left rein. I haven't schooled her for a little while and she's definitely deteriorated since I last did. Before I try to go down the route of saddle checks and/or physio/backman, is there any schooling exercising that would be able to help? I've been...

    Tail swishing in the transitions - would it put you off?

    I had a horse that used to swish it's tail, bad enough to look like a propellor, got him fully vetted etc and it turned out he needed a bit of physio, and a new saddle. He came right with one physio session and never had any problems again, he was 8 when we bought him, and 10 years on he's still...
