    Grumpy mare!

    My mare has always been a bit of a grouch occasionally, but recently she been worse than usual. My mum was looking after her over the weekend and was backed into a corner of the stable after my mare tried to kick her. She also took off with her twice over the weekend when brought in from the...

    Advice on sharing my horse...

    She hacks out fine in company, but is nervy on her own. Although there is no one on my yard who hacks, there is a woman nearby who would be interested, but haven't been out as of yet due to the weather. She will hack out alone but she is nervy and will take the p***, so the rider has to be...

    Advice on sharing my horse...

    I'm thinking about finding a sharer for my horse as I really need more time to concentrate on university. I have never shared before nor known anyone who has, so was basically just looking for some advice on how I should go about it and where is best to advertise? A bit of a stupid...

    Ditto this. I don't usually give cc as there are far more experienced people than me on here, but I had a lesson today involving more forwardness and impulsion and thought I would share. My instructor told me to count my mares strides on the long side of the arena which provides a good...

    How much does a lesson cost these days?

    I pay £15 for mine. As to how long it lasts - depends on what we are doing. It can be anything from 20 minutes to 50 minutes. Instructor is on site too, which is helpful. Compared to other instructors I have had this is comparatively cheap. I paid £30 for my last instructor for 45 minutes.
