    BHS National convention

    Despite his eyesight issue, he coped really well in 2015 as a demo horse at Your Horse Live. I was picked as a reserve rider last year so couldn't believe I got picked this year ����

    Speetly and Solihull unaffiliated ODE? Anyone been?

    Solihull run on the BE course. You can see all their XC courses on You Tube The showjumping is on a surface. Their SJs are up to height and usually wide (I have an oxer fear!) The XC is lovely, but last time I went fence 5 was back in the same field as the start box, so my lad saw the lorry...

    Good first unaffiliated 90 in the midlands?

    Look up Lands Eventing - they run some lovely ones at Offchurch of fabulous ground. The Pre-Area warm up isn't ideal for a first step up as it's often built to size and technical. But all the ODEs are fair courses There's Moreton Morrell (Warks), Aston Le Walls (nr Banbury)

    Dallas bursting arena xc

    Yes, I've done it, it truly is one of the best in the business! Lloyd Hunt the organiser is a wonderful man and we are so lucky to have him local and so dedicated to our sport. If you have a problem he's there on foot. If you get eliminated, they let you carry on. I won the 70cm my first time...

    Riding Club people-Help me!

    Bridle number isn't compulsory - HappyDayz I wonder if it's an additional rule your local RC has included on their rules - it's certainly not a Riding Club nor BD requirement

    Broadway BE80?

    I've not ridden the XC there, but done some Riding Club dressage there, it's very hilly and the ground can be quite hard, but the fences I saw looked very inviting

    Brogini boots

    My Brogini were beautifully soft, I didn't need to wear mine in. As for the foot, I can get away with wearing trainer socks over my normal socks to pad my foot out (helps stop my foot flapping around and causing my spur to pinch my dodgy ankle bones!)
