    Lorry tyre help

    Hi I went to check my tyres yesterday and can't work out how to do the inside rear ones. It is a DAF 7.5t 11 yrs old. It has no user manual and Google doesn't help. There is what looks like a long tube connected to inner tyre poking through outer. I connected to this but did not read pressure...

    What is wrong?

    Yup, he is often the youngest on a PC or NSEA team. He is picture of health good top line moving well. Have been talking to vet all through but maybe time for a full MOT.

    What is wrong?

    He lives out, had 3 weeks off in autumn and then 2 weeks recently after they went hunting as daughter got injured. I wish he could talk, has not had heavy comp life, previous home hacked for a couple of years in early teens. Compared with many I know he is low mileage but they are all individuals.

    What is wrong?

    OK apologies a little long but I am stumped. Daughter has a great connie owned for 2 years and now 16 yrs old. He has been super genuine only stops if physically unable to get over jump. Will buck occasionally but usually in result of a smack or if left behind on a gallop. At the end of last...

    Best country boots

    I am looking for new boots. Always had Dubarry but last pair leaked at 9 months old so don't think worth the money anymore. I like that style, ie pull on no laces or straps. What do people recommend? I have big feet, long legs and fit a normal calf fit ( but just).

    Anatomical girth for a pony

    Hi, my saddle fitter has recommended an anatomical girth for our round 13.3 with a forward girth grove to stop the saddle moving forward. So far I can't find one small enough - 40 in. Any recommendations?? For a GP saddle, all the shorter ones sem to be for a dressage saddle - would this work...

    Insurance claim confusion?

    My horse had a seemingly minor kick, treated by the vet and healed - no insurance needed. Then 2 months later developed unidentified symptoms (of what turned out to be nerve damage). My vet refered me straight to the vet hospital for a CT, xrays and investigations. So the first the insurance...
