    Retraining ex-racers thread

    She’s only trained. Apparently too slow, which I can believe! Love being part of the ex racer club

    Retraining ex-racers thread

    He’s gorgeous! After getting my own ex racer (albeit 2 days ago) I’m really interested in other people’s journeys! So I will be watching this thread!!

    Third Time Lucky

    Thought so and knew it was just me overstressing. Yeah the plan for the next few weeks is to keep her in a routine and do very simple things with her like grooming, introducing to hose, fly spray etc and then working in hand in the school.

    Third Time Lucky

    Thanks everyone. Some lovely names suggested!! We had a bit of a pamper session today but she really stresses when other horses leave her. She does settle in time but the first 5/10 minutes of them leaving she is not happy. Is it just a case of it should get better with keeping her in a...

    Third Time Lucky

    I am so excited to introduce this little lady. This is Nova, she’s a 15.2 3 year old Thoroughbred. She is quite honestly the calmest mare I have ever met in my life. I tried her on Monday and instantly fell in love with how calm she is, especially for a 3 year old TB. I know she will...

    Weekend plans?

    I’m picking up something very special and exciting tomorrow. I’ll do a thread about it when it’s safely in my “possession” but I feel like a child at Christmas

    An early "Next weekend" thread - a hot one!

    My boy is off to his loan home on Sunday. I am absolutely heartbroken, especially as he has been going incredibly recently, but it’s the best thing for both of us. He really is a special boy. And I’m just glad it’s not a proper goodbye like it would be if I sold him. We are having a last cross...

    Of course! 14.3-16hh 3-7 years old Preferably mare but happy for gelding Don’t mind forward and quirky, just not crazy or dangerous Backed but don’t mind lightly backed Long term aim is to event up to BE100 (if I’m ever brave enough) but I understand that anything with proven potential is out...

    Is this a red flag in a youngster?

    I am genuinely tempted by the Irish market as they do have some nice things. Buying unseen scares me a bit and I’m not sure where to even look

    Is this a red flag in a youngster?

    Very true. You’re right - there’s not a lot in my budget but there’s at least sound horses in my budget

    Is this a red flag in a youngster?

    Oh yes it is common sense to be selective of the ground. I just mean I would have to be even more selective. A few of the training courses near us have all weather take off and landing, which I presume would make her lame…

    Is this a red flag in a youngster?

    Me too, which is why I need to likes of my trainer and this forum to keep me on the straight and narrow and not buy something totally broken Another very experienced friend said something I hadn’t thought of that is very true - even if she comes sound in a few weeks, I will always have to be...
