    2 year old child dies falling from her pony.

    The comments out there are terrible. For all we know the poor girl was being led on her saint of a veteran pony who tripped on a stone. It only takes an awkward landing to be hurt badly. RIP little one and thoughts to her parents.

    Utterly, utterly disgusted. So sorry for the owners and horses. I cannot understand how she's been allowed to get away with it - pure scum.

    Gosh, how sad that so many of you know of similar stories. I just can't get my head around why people do it. 😔

    Sussexbythesea - I completely agree. So sorry for your friend. ycbm - the story is local to me and therefore of interest. I've seen firsthand someone doing exactly the same, charging people for livery and then starving the horses to literally skin and bone. How anyone can do such a thing is...

    Any views on Bateson trailers?

    I had a Bateson Deauville and loved it. The horses travelled well, it was easy to tow and had plastic, no rot floor. Would buy again over an Ifor.

    Beginners guide to hoof boots please

    As a btw (sorry if I'm teaching you to suck eggs), it's a good idea to scrub the cut away areas with Hibiscrub and a toothbrush and/or spray with Bactakil. :)

    Livery near Horsham??!!

    Not sure if they have any spaces at the moment but it might be worth having a look at Woodhouse Farm Livery (they have a Facebook page). Small, private yard, extremely well run and great facilities.

    Farriers/ trimmers near Horsham/ Crawley/ Brighton

    Kevin Newlyn is fantastic. Polite, on time, brilliant with the horses and wants what is best for them (including keeping them barefoot if that is what you want). I can PM you his number if you'd like?

    Are you dressaging on Saturday? We're on fairly early but will look out for you. I'll be on the welsh chestnut who I'm praying will behave (although possibly not). The panic has set in!!!!
