    Knee support recommendations?

    Riding Everyday - Too much?

    Sounds pretty much like my routine. If we do more than usual he might have the next day off, but otherwise I ride most days.

    So - If horse riding was banned......

    She is not in charge of this country. We elect a government (good or bad) to do that.

    No. I was pointing out there are more reasons than commodity or pet for owning a horse. Who knows what your reasons are.

    Dressage Diagrams not allowing me in!

    I just checked my account, haven’t used it in 3 years or more. Works ok for me, I can still see my portfolio.

    At what point do you accept your horse/pony is just too old to do what you want it to do?

    I agree it’s hard for liveries. It’s easy to say ‘chuck him out and let him end his years in the field’ if you own such fields. Otherwise it is usually give up riding altogether as few can afford livery for 2. Some people have the resources to retire, others see their horses as pets, which is...
