    What would you do?

    I would ask your manager if they had any concerns about how you rode when you first started working there. If they say no, then ask for more opportunities to ride if possible as you really enjoy that as part of the job.

    Has anyone moved in with partner for a better life for their horses?

    Nothing ventured, nothing gained. I think you should give it a go, it would be a shame to stay on your island and always wonder what might have been. If you have your own place you can rent out, you are in a very good position. I wish you all the very best with your partner.

    What does it mean to be confident?

    Just go to the interview and be honest about your experience and be yourself. Personality and trainability may also be important qualities as it is an apprenticeship you are seeking. Presumably the successful applicant will be trained on the job. Good luck.

    Steroid induced laminitis-thoughts?

    I have a tb that got cortisone induced laminitis. He was prescribed cortisone shots for 5 days due to severe hives. On the 6th day he was showing clear laminitis signs. Pain and heat in front feet. We spoke to the treating vet and immediately removed him from pasture and only fed soaked hay and...
