    Government considering doing away with trailer test

    I only passed my driving test 2 years ago, and the only reversing they asked me to do was to prove I could reverse backwards in a straight line when I was parked on the RHS of the road. I was taught parallel parking and reverse parking, but was not asked to demonstrate those in my test!

    Even the dressage riders will have been expected to jump a fair height to pass the test to allow them to compete top level dressage in Germany!

    Highland ponies on the hunting field?

    I hunted my old Highland, only a couple of times as mum refused to let me go more often (was only a teen). Was around Bucks/Herts region, and he loved it, and was far more sensible with the odd ditch we came across than many other horses. Didn't do all the jumps, but that was more often to do...

    Tokyo Eventing Dressage

    I like the music the Japanese rider has as his background! ETA watching on the German channels as my Eurosport doesn't want to play ball this morning! So no Lucinda wittering nonsense in the background!

    Pigeon toes

    Reg had minor pigeon toes, and he successfully competed 80 and 120km FEI endurance with my sister! Got to 11 and could no longer do the distance due to arthritis in his fetlock, but we thought it was more related to an accident he had when he was a 2 yo due to where it was. Didn't twist his leg...

    Not specifically mentioned, but I've volunteered several times for endurance rides, and usually been pretty well looked after! And often thanked by the organiser/given a bottle of wine as well Riders generally haven't been too bad, most are reasonably chatty. Some are a bit stuck up, but that's...

    I watched it with my non-horsey bf recently, and despite him not being keen on cartoons and knowing next to nothing about horses, he thoroughly enjoyed it. It has aged incredibly well, and it has such a nice feel good story to it as well!

    Joe moves :)

    Lovely and workmanlike! Definitely lots to like and a way to improve with him still being a baby

    change my mind - what controversial/guilty horsey things do you do and not feel guilty for??:)

    Not really, just an absolute saint of a pony who I trusted to keep going at the same pace and direction! It would have taken far longer to have had the discussion with her about slowing down, actually slowing down and doing it than letting her just canter on and doing it very carefully! Thanks...
