    petplan q

    I have a claim with them at the moment and they are being a nightmare to deal with. My horse was put to sleep on the 31st of October as he'd had repeated call outs and the vet discovered a tumour obstructing his bowel, so he was pts. We put in a claim for him being pts on the basis of an...

I tried it yesterday and its definitely set up right, have watched the instruction dvd over and over!! but the back piece seems...

    I have a pair of the cool max ones and I'd say they are fairly true to size

    Loading problems- are they ever solved?

    Yes, physically he's fine. He is seen regularly by vet, farrier, saddler and physio all are happy with him (I'm one of these people who is insistent with regular maintenance checks) and he has no other issues, happy ridden at home in the school and out hacking. His only issue is that his mind is...

    Loading problems- are they ever solved?

    We've been doing groundwork each time and then loading and unloading in different places around the yard at different times, varying between 2-5 repetitions each time, and doing this pretty much every other day which is what the RA recommended. Since she visited a month ago he must have loaded...

    What are 'the basics' in your opinion?

    Understanding that yes, horses do need water everyday. New livery actually said this yesterday after I had filled up said horses trough in the field because it had nothing to drink at all and gently reminded her it needs to be checked to make sure he has water! You can imagine what the rest of...

    Loading problems- are they ever solved?

    As the title really, horse used to travel fine, just before Christmas started being a knob to load, no rhyme or reason for it. A month ago got a fab monty Roberts RA down who had him loading like a dream in no time. For the last month he's literally been trotting up the ramp no problem at...

    Brown Dressage Saddles?

    Gelding No 2 had the saddler out to get his dressage saddle sorted, and after the fuss with Gelding No 1's gp from k&m (all sorted out no problem) we thought we'd be going with a k&m dressage, all fitted fine and suits his tabletop back. Only to find out that it's only available in black, now...

    Equetech Vision breeches sizing

    Just wondering if anyone can advise what the sizing is like of these breeches? I'm a size 12, currently I've got cavallo's which I find spot on for sizing, Dublin which I find generous and ariat which are pretty snug and generally have to go up a size. Do the Equetech compare to any of these...

    Stable bandages/boots

    I second the PE stable boots, my old boys legs have a tendency to fill overnight and I initially used stable bandages but didn't trust anyone else to do them in case I was ill or couldn't get there for whatever reason. So I got the veredus stable boots and a set of PE ones as a reserve for when...

    IH/ RA covering Cornwall

    He was actually my first port of call, but doesn't answer the phone, respond to email or voicemails, so I assume he's no longer going? Shame really as he dealt with a horse of ours some years ago quite successfully.

    Clipping help!

    Last year I bought myself a set of clippers, with 3 horses it was costing nearly as much to pay someone else to do it. Anyway, last time I clipped (had done 3 full clips and 3 re-clips) I noticed the blades not cutting as well as they should so sent them off to be sharpened with another set...

    IH/ RA covering Cornwall

    Thanks for the replies, we travelled a horse for a friend on Sunday, the first thing she said was 'oh its set up different to your old box' we hadn't even realised the new box is herringbone with head closest to the cab and tail to the ramp, the old box which ishe was 100% in was herringbone...
