    correct bridle for in hand

    Please could someone advise me on the correct bridle in which to show my welsh d gelding in in hand mountain and moorland? He's 11 years old. Is his usual plain snaffle bridle with reins over head correct or is an inhand bridle better? Thanks in advance.

    can anyone recommend an effective calmer?

    Can anyone recommend a calmer for occasional use for my horse who is generally fine at home but gets really excited and wound up at shows? I'm reluctant to add a supplement to his feed as he's fine at home so was thinking one of the single syringes, or would i be better adding it to his feed...

    Changing farrier after 10yrs :(

    have been in the same situation as you. Tried to speak to farrier several times but things didn't improve. He had been coming to us for 20 odd years and I felt terrible about getting another farrier. Having got another one who does a brilliant job i wish I had changed when I noticed that there...

    do dealers budge on prices or are they set?

    IMO there's no harm in asking. I have bought from 2 different dealers and got £300 knocked off one horse but only £50 off the other. He did deliver him for free though.

    Made to measure bridle/ half cob half full with a budget . Help please

    My Sabre bridles have cob and full parts to them, my saddler sold them separately, as does the website. I've had one of them for over 10 years and it still looks great. Bought the other a few weeks ago. It was around the £75 mark without reins. Would highly recommend them- great quality.
