    Our horse is 28 and still going strong (competed at Olympia at Christmas) and really healthy. About 4 years ago he really started to look at things, and we think his eyesight is becoming a little fuzzy. We just take our time with him and make sure he feels safe. Out hacking he does look at...

    Trailer buying rant

    Me too. I asked the trailer weight and they said -How would I know that? err... Then I asked another how old the trailer was and they said they didn't know. Seriously do they expect me to pay good money. I eventually bought from a trailer dealership which turned out great as we got...

    How did you learn to use your core?

    Quite by accident really. Went to Pilates and that seemed to change things. Also rode without stirrups most of the time.

    Horse won't stand still in trailer - kicking, biting and rearing!

    We had allsorts of issues with loading and travelling. Why don't you leave half an hour earlier and when you get to the comp get her out the trailer and take her for a wallk around so that she can see where she is then put her back in. We have one that will stand in the trailer but if he...

    Am I wrong to be annoyed?

    Lesson learnt. I paid £2000 for an operation on my knee several years ago as the national health said I could wait 18 months but a private surgeon said my knee needed attention straight away. I wasn't insured and the owner of the horse said she wasn't covered for me, but she was happy for me...
