    Horsebox insurers and breakdown recommendations please!

    Shearwater who use ERS. Before I was with NFU but as well as being more expensive, didn't have homestart included in their recovery despite using the same company. I also found the same as Elleskywalker with NFU. A friend wanted to borrow the lorry so I called and had her added to the policy...

    Am I a novice rider?

    Of the half dozen people I know who bought an non ideal first horse. One like kaylum it worked out for and made them as a rider; two had falls and lost confidence and gave up riding; the rest didn't end in disaster but didn't go well either. They tried their best but but made little progress...

    Am I a novice rider?

    That would be my first thought as something that has potential to show jump, tbs aren't really built or bred for pure show jumping. I would have said a nice irish horse for what you want. Are you not in the UK though, both irish horses and warmbloods seem to be pretty common everywhere. They...

    What's the obsession with buckskins and duns?

    Moulting - slow summer coat growth

    One of mine is looking really scruffy at the moment. The unclipped bits are coming out unevenly and he looks like the moths have been at him. The clipped bits look a bit bare in places where summer coat hasn't come through yet so a bit like your bare patches. He's very shiny through. Hasn't...

    How my 1st attempt at stressage went

    The first test I did with mine was on grass and the sight of white boards against bright green grass was more than he could cope with. After scuttling through the gap at A we proceeded down the centre line to C were he span and made an attempt to leg it out of the ring. The rest of the test...
