    How much was your horse?

    My first pony was also £1! But I had him on loan and was then given him. His old owner still has the £1! He was absolutely brilliant and we had many good years until EMS/Lami got him. His old owner out grew him but i'm short so it worked out :) Current pony was a bit of a bargain, only...

    1st Feb Weekend Thread

    Hacking this evening (avoiding the mud) and nothing again at the weekend as still on 'yard shifts' :( Buzz being vaccinated Monday so he'll have the week off as normal which helpfully coincides with the horrible weather forecast. Looks like I may have to cave and dig out a rug, he's got a very...

    Weekend plans, 2nd weekend in January

    Nothing for me! We've been told we can only go on to the actual yard 3 times a week (to keep social distancing etc, it's not a big yard) for tacking up and using the school and my slots are all during the week. We are allowed to tack up straight from the field like we were doing in summer but i...

    The saddle pad is from Kramer :) it kept being sold out so I had to watch the website like a hawk for when it came back into stock! It's an Ideal Event - in a 16.5 and modified with a smaller flap for my short legs :D it's so comfortable!

    soft soles due to weather

    Mine has been having these issues too. He lives out so they don't get a chance to dry out. I've been using boots for hacking, he's fine on the tarmac road walking up to the yard it's just the stony ground we have to go on for hacking. Might try some hoof hardener though!

    2020 round up and 2021 plans...?

    I'd just like to have a year of being able to use my horsebox :D I think i'd like to try and aim for a BE80 again but my jumping confidence is rock bottom again so that will need some work. I know I can do it, just need to get my brain to cooperate!

    weekend plans

    Horsebox still dead so not much for me this weekend! Took Buzz out for a hack yesterday after a few days off from his fall and he was very spooky, think he expected cats to dart out from everywhere! So probably just some more hacking for me so he can relax again.
