    Grazing muzzles

    I don’t ever enlarge the hole. My mare is a pro at using a muzzle. I lent one to a friend whose horse stood for hours not even attempting to try to graze but within a week she was grazing like a good ‘un. They all learn pretty quickly.

    Happy gentle falling off stories please!

    What's your nervous riding song?

    Songs from my childhood like Lavender's Blue and The Ash Grove. I’m sure my pony recognises these now and takes them as a sign to go steady 😊 With my Welsh cob it was Brown Girl in the Ring as it suited her footfall.

    Nervous about yard move??!! WWYD
