    Sold horse trailer

    What are the problems with it? Things like that are sold as seen. I presume they gave it a good going over themselves?

    Tail Guard

    Have you tried travelling without? My mare would rub her tail on the back bar so the tail guard or bandage would slip down. Exposing a lovely loo brush look at the top. I tried travelling without anything and she didn't rub. I worked out she was rubbing her tail in an attempt to remove the...

    CheVal Liberte Minimax Trailer?

    That comment was from 6 years ago now so more than likely things have changed.

    I think it's purely down to everywhere being run on minimal staff due to Covid. Everything is delayed as a consequence.

    Kerbweight Vs towing capacity

    I tow my Cheval Liberte trailer with a Kuga. Trailer weight is 860kg. My horse is 570kg so a bit under what you would be towing. I find the Kuga a great car to tow with, never had any problems.

    Riding after hysterectomy

    Sorry to resurrect your old thread. I'm wondering how your hysterectomy went? I'm about to have the same myself. Hope your recovery was straight forward and you were back riding promptly.

    Best plastic mounting block

    I have a set of caravan steps which I place on the trailer ramp when mounting. It then becomes the equivalent of 3 steps...

    Selling a trailer

    Sell it as it is. I sold my old "2003" model Cheval a few years ago on Ebay. Started bids at 200 quid and had a lot of interest. It needed 2 new panels, gas struts and quite a few other bits. I advertised it with all the repairs that were needed and actually stated that I felt it wasn't fit...

    Question for those who borrow transport...

    I would never lend my trailer to anyone. Not after I saw a horse kick the granny out of one at a show. Someone on my yard was recently put out as I refused to let them borrow it just to practice loading their fruit loop horse. I'd only ever transport someone's horse in an emergency or the odd...

    ‘Novice’ getting first horse!

    You sound like you're going in with your eyes wide open. As you have the support network and will be on full livery I would take the plunge. There's never really a "right time" to buy a horse. I take it you have been doing things like mucking out and grooming at the riding school? Turning out...

    Head shaking at end of a hack

    My mare does this when she has sweat around her ears or a sweaty face. Could it be that?

    Bedsoft Shavings

    I use the Bedsoft Bio. (pink bag) Fab Stuff! Moved to a new yard and they don't allow straw bed and personally hate shavings. It's very absorbant, so easy to muck out. I semi deep litter for approximately two weeks. Wouldn't use anything else now.

    Travelling question

    Funny this should come up as I'm currently discussing with friends about towing over the QE2 bridge into Kent and back through the tunnel. Ive got no issues towing anywhere but the thought of that bridge and that tunnel scare the hell out of me. Completely irrational but I'm glad it's not just me!
