    Allergic Reaction to Neoprene Girth

    Just wanted to know if anyone else has had a problem with a neoprene girth or even just neoprene!! My daughter's little Section A had a new girth on Friday which was a short neoprene dressage girth. On Saturday she could barely walk and had a huge swelling in between her legs as well as big...

    PSSM people, I need your advice please!

    I am jumping in late to this discussion but for my PSSM2 suspect horse (he was tested by Equiseq and came back negative to all variants that they had at that time but I am still convinced he has something!!) I fed him: Speedibeet Top Chop Zero Alfalfa Pellets Salt Micronised Linseed Equimins...

    Best cordless clippers

    I have seen what looks like a fab set of cordless clippers - Wolseley Jay clippers which you can either use clipper blades on or trimmer blades. My current Heiniger Handy clippers are too heavy for me to use really so I'm looking for something lighter and I like the Jay's as they are quiet and...

    How much Sedalin to clean willy?

    New horse has one or more beans I need to remove. He’s shy about getting his willy out so am going to give him some Sedalin. He’s a 16.2hh tb but quite small withlong legs! I don’t want him sparko but enough to get him to flop it out,

    New loan horse dragging hind toes and feeling a bit weird behind!!

    Got lovely new loan horse on Saturday - he's a ex racehorse who retired and went hunting. He's done nothing for about 6 months and has come to me to hunt and do bits and bobs. He is a rangy, leggy, fairly weak looking horse who is in his teens I think. I don't think he's ever done any schooling...

    Purchase deal breakers, what are yours?

    Anything with PSSM or that the vendor says has tied up more than once. Bad feet - if I"m buying the horse, its feet need to be good from the start. Anything with spavin or sacroiliac issues Buckers/bolters/rearers.

    Best good trimmers

    I've got some Wolseley Skylark trimmers which are pretty rubbish in my opinion! I'm looking to get some new better ones. They need to be able to do faces/armpits/tricky bits well and efficiently. Any thoughts? Price not really an issue as long as they are good. I've got Heineger Handy Clippers...

    When can I take muzzle off?!!

    Got a little 11h Section A that has had very bad laminitis in the past (before we got her) and as a result, she only ever goes out with a muzzle on and is fine. She's in medium work - exercised every day led off a big horse and then hunts on a Saturday with my 7 year old. She's looking good...

    Haygain forager replacement regulators

    Just use the carabiner clips - seriously they get far easier the more you use them I promise and now I don't even think about it. Its far easier and cheaper than getting new regulators!!

    Realistic price for a horse like this?

    Have a look at Exmoor Eventing's website. They are in upstate New York but also spend a lot of time in Florida. They are UK people who breed/produce eventers. If they didn't have anything suitable, they could put you in touch with someone who might...

    Tipping forward in saddle

    I felt exactly the same with the K&M cob saddle that I tried. Felt awful.

    Riding in the dark

    I ride in the dark in the mornings on the roads/woods - I use a fab headtorch (cost me nearly £80 a couple of years ago but its amazing and well worth the money). Hi viz Amigo exercise sheet on the horse and crack on.
