    Breast Cancer and riding

    I was diagnosed in 2011. Had right breast removed followed by chemo and radiotherapy. I had a TRAM flap reconstruction two years later. I had to wear a corset for three months post surgery and was told not to ride for those three months either. No heavy lifting etc either. Don't start doing...

    Should i pay the bill?

    As 'money is not a problem' for the OP, i don't really see why there is an issue at all! OP might not legally be obliged to pay for X-rays, however, if I were her I would get X-rays done and paid for and take it from there. Squabbling over who 'should' pay for what is surely detrimental to the...

    hmm... and that makes a good farrier???

    I left Alsace last summer having lived there for 9 years. My farrier was definitely the best farrier I've ever had. Don't know which 'end' of Alsace you -re at but if you're not happy with your farrier and you're within 'range' I would highly recommend Romuald Pfeiffer, you'll find his website...

    How long can a horse survive trapped in thicket

    I agree it is baffling but it does go on all over the place. Unfortunately not all horse owners are caring, responsible individuals. I have been on several different yards over the years ranging from very basic to very posh. And there were incidents taking place in all of them regarding careless...

    No worries, just a shame it's out in the open now that I'm 55 and no spring chicken!

    How long can a horse survive trapped in thicket

    I said a lot of posts came across as blaming the OP, I never named anybody. I know it is a result of chaotic horse care but again, that is not the OP's fault is it?

    You may be responding to her posts but you don't seem to be taking her answers on board...

    How long can a horse survive trapped in thicket

    Of course it's completely appalling, but not the OP's fault!! Yet a lot of posts come across as if she is to blame

    How long can a horse survive trapped in thicket

    Exactly! Like you say, it is the rest of the owners/ rest of the situation which is the issue. Which has nothing to do with the OP, so why keep going on and on and on at her? Pointless much?
