    Use of Arc Equine on Humans

    I know this thread is a month old now but I have just come across it. I have a new AE unit for myself and another for my horses. The horses are another story in itself - but in a nut shell, vet said would not jump again and last year hunted half a season and did our first BE - now done another...

    Paddock cleaners - advice please :-)

    Hi all - I am looking into buying a paddock cleaner - the brush type not the hoover type. I need something that I can tow behind a small quad bike. The quad has its own power supply at the back for attachments so I am looking for something that utilises this rather than one that has an on board...

    Hunter exercise.

    Hi! I bought a horse who had hunted hard with the Cheshires all last season. I have turned him away for the last few weeks giving him a bit of a holiday, but am trying to figure out when to bring him back into work for autumn hunting and get him hunting fit the good old fashioned way of 6-8...

    Bitting issues.....

    I have had exactly the same problem with my darling boy - he is a 15.3hh ID strong chunky lad. I school him in a NS loose ring verbindend - hacks out in a waterford hanging cheek, as its a bit more strong if I needed it - and sometimes hacking out I do. But out hunting he just goes off on one -...

    How would a German Dressage Comp horse have been kept?

    Auld is right about the trailer and horse boxes - Lorrys are so expensive over there its preventative - a friend of ours is a professional 'S' class (top level) show jumper and he only has a trailer - and many of them have tarpaulin roofs! you would shudder to see what they are transported in -...

    How would a German Dressage Comp horse have been kept?

    Ooo look forward to the pictures - from our experience of living there with our hrses - competition horses and many others are just not allowed to have a personality so takes a while for that to come along - and they are often not used to turn out at all - so watch those windy days and wear a...

    Cough when transition fron walk to trot

    My gelding does this and has for years - the vet says he has a small pocket in his lunges that is over stretched and does not contract - so a small pocket of mucus stays there - when we go up from walk to trot and the start of our ride he always has to get his head down and clear himself. I have...

    Hi there - you would be best giving him a bell - he is so approachable - plus it will give you a good feel for what he is like - your not looking cheap and cheerful but you are looking quality without the Oakley price tag! :-) I think prices would very much depend on what you need in a box and...

    kevin parker or jm horseboxes

    ID - well said, so many people want a little box to drive but still want the luxury of a 7.5 - not possible unless you carry ponies. One last thing about KP - he is as honest as the day is long - seen too many builders who cant lie straight in bed! would you trust them with your money? I spoke...

    kevin parker or jm horseboxes

    SP - I am thinking about getting a lorry built to my spec and we went over to see Kevin Parker and have a good look at what was in build. We were really impressed! I am a fussy sod and wont put my horses into anything that I am not happy with (trailers, single wheel rear axle etc etc) the lorry...
