    Eventing europeans - who will be on the team?

    Just home from Blair today - couldn't stay for the last day as working. All I can say is wow. Standard was so high - GB riders did fab, and Germany just incredible. Michael Jung on for another title I think. However I have a horrid cold. Anyone watching the XC today on the BBC may have...

    Pads under fleece bandages?

    With fleece bandages I don't use pads. Polo bandages though I do. My preference though is sport wraps - much less bulky than either and less likely to overheat, more like a boot to apply but softer. My fleece bandages are mainly eskadron etc - no problems with them.

    Everybody hurts, sometimes, everybody cries.....

    Well then - that's about as good as it can be then. Try and keep your chin up - but don't begrudge yourself a good cry, even if it's just mourning this season in the long run. Can't wait to see reports from the new orange one :)

    Oh no. I'm so, so sorry. I know that horrible feeling of 'will we ever do it again?' Too well. Just have a good cry. You never know, he may come back, and if he does you'll have TWO to be excited about. Then it will be juggling two horses and two kids - imagine the excitement! ;) All...

    Geoff update: the end of the road.

    Thank you all so much. He was such a character and it's a comfort to think HHO will miss him too. I put a similar notification up on our blog, just to finish it off, but it has a wealth of photos of us during our 3 years of HHO blogging that I really love if anyone would like to see them...

    Average Income of horsey families

    In my experience at pony club, there are three types of families: the professional horsy family, who don't earn much but have the horses/knowledge/contacts/sponsors and so the kids do well out of that; the minted family, who can afford to buy whatever the child needs pony-wise and...
