    Welcome to HHO Towing Clinic

    Thank you very much trailer guy. Yes, I think it was the Discovery detachable tow bars that have given the detachable ones a bad reputation amongst horse owners. Mine was a fitted flange tow bar on that vehicle. I was given some duff info on the Kia tow bar it would seem, by both the salesman...

    Welcome to HHO Towing Clinic

    Sorry if I'm posting in the wrong place, the forum has changed a bit since I last visited. I've put a post in the 'Tack Room' but it may be better here. Does anyone tow with a new shape (2015) Kia Sorento? It seems that the latest reincarnation of the Kia Sorrento can only have a detachable...

    Who tows with a new shape (2015) Kia Sorento?

    It seems that the latest reincarnation of the Kia Sorrento can only have a detachable tow bar rather than a fitted version. We have found a Sorento that fits our criteria and has a tow bar to replace my unreliable Discovery 3, however, I'm rather worried about the detachable tow bar as have...

    Lice Help - Coopers not available

    Deosect - really easy to use. You dilute it and a tin goes a long way. It can be used in a sprayer in summer as a very effective fly spray. Cleared up my lousy chap immediately!

    What do I wear to Cheltenham races country day?

    Tweed! Surely it's dependant on which enclosure you're in as if in members I'd have thought no jeans etc. long time since I went - 20 odd years ago, so things might be different now.

    Sticky burrs!

    A hoof pick can help get them out. The burrs also have an itching powder effect as you break them up - horrid things! I would spray conditioner in their manes and rails but it would probably be easier to get rid of all the burrs first!

    Anyone 'need' a 13hh coloured jumping pony for free !!

    A lady in our Pony Club has a 14hh version also from Bransby and she's a fantastic jumper. They've had her for about 3 years now, and the younger daughter will have her eventually. Definitely worth considering giving him a home.

    Swollen hind legs

    Has he had more protein than normal? This can make their hind legs swell sometimes. My elderly TB had this last year when he was on good grass. It's usually their hind limbs that swell because they are further away from the heart. Vet advised me to give Epsom salts in his feed and this brought...

    Show jumper falls off, (minor blip) then horse turns on him

    This is exactly what I think. One wonders if it has been "dealt with" on a previous occassion for similar behaviour and having got the rider off is getting its own back.
