    Why didn't Lottie Fry trot up Everdale?

    It said in the H&H he was trotted out of order as he could sometimes misbehave in trot ups - if that’s the case then they probably don’t want to risk him squashing Lottie (or her groom) before she competes!

    Who knows about hoof boots? Hoof Bootique really are excellent (there’s a reason why they’re pretty much always the first company mentioned on threads like these or on places like FB), there’s lots of information available on their website or if you...

    Should I hit the panic button?

    Happy to help, glad you liked it. (In my mind it’s pronounced Cah-so, as Kay would K for potassium, not Ca for calcium, but obviously it’s owners choice!).

    Should I hit the panic button?

    Caso, from CaSO_4, the chemical formula for calcium sulphate aka gypsum?

    Livery North Leeds- I need contacts!!

    If you’re willing to come as far out as edge of Harrogate then there’s Crain Sykes in North Rigton, Beavers in Beckwithshaw and Harrogate Riding Centre in Burnbridge.

    SJ training West/North Yorkshire

    I’m in a similar area, but at a much lower level - instructors I’ve used who could suit your criteria: Christie Batty (‘B Equine’) does various clinics, both independent and through York & district RC round York area. Hazel Towers? (5* eventer and fairly gung-ho!). She does a fair few things...

    any american quarter horse owners on here

    That’d be amazing! I’m fairly certain that the name Stacy came from the owner but one before me (who I think got her as a 2yo?). There was a bit of drama over her transferral from that owner to her previous owner however so I’m remembering casual conversations from over 15 years ago here. I...

    any american quarter horse owners on here

    OMG, I don’t care that this is a zombie thread, that’s amazing! Do you/your mum have any photos of them? Or even photos of Stacy - as I’ve always known her - as a foal? I still have her, though at 27 she is now retired and happily spends her days mooching round the field with a companion pony...

    'learn how to fall'

    The thing is it’s not just about learning the technique, but then practising it enough so that in a fall situation your body does it without thinking. I credit knowing how to breakfall, and having practiced it enough that I did it without thinking, with how I was able to limp away from a hit and...

    How old is too old? Driving horse

    One of the horses in Boyd Excell’s team at Olympia this year is in her early-mid twenties (one of the leads I think) according to the commentators. Admittedly I’m sure all his horses are under exceptional management, but if she can be crushing the opposition at the highest level of...

    My horse really really needs this!

    Another one who needs this for my welsh dragon (conveniently black, so goes with all colours!)

    Worth a look?

    Surely it’d be a circus minimus!

    B+E Trailer test.. do it yourself?

    Definitely worth doing a least a days training in my opinion and hiring for test (I passed at the end of August). What you need to know/ do to pass the B+E test do not necessarily match what you need to know/ do to safely drive a horse trailer! There’s a lot of little points that are...

    Urgh - selling a trailer shouldn't be this hard

    I think less people towing has more to do with having to take the B+E test if you got your license post 1997, if only as it adds an extra £500-£1000 to your initial outlay.

    Is it boring for a horse of the right temperament though? I don’t think you can assume because it seems monotonous and boring to you as human another animal finds it that way. Certainly, I’d find it pretty boring just to mooch around a field all day but my horses seem very content to do...
