    France to impose certificate of knowledge

    IF worded correctly it could be a massive positive to preventing and resolving horse welfare issues It could also offer a legal standard of horse care that if failed could be classed as breaking the law, so it would make it easier to be able to remove the horse and prosecute the owner

    What’s the cheekiest thing your horse does?

    My girl def believes she should always have my sole attention, if I'm nattering to a fellow human she starts waving a front leg at me, if I don't stop chatting she starts tapping me with her toe. She also tries to load herself into any open trailer/box, if she ever got loose at a show I'd have...

    No Fence - thoughts

    Not something I would consider, can't see what's stopping the horse getting a shock, bolting the wrong direction, then being constantly shocked and panicked until it's found?

    Feasibility of being a freelance groom

    Reckon if you can quickly build up a regular client list then it can work well. However know a few people who have done this and found themselves dealing with stables that haven't been mucked out properly for months/fields full of poo/unkept horses etc, all of which was expected to be at a good...

    Neatsfoot oil - can I use it on all my tack?

    I used to use Neatsfoot on all my tack, espically new tack to soften it, but found as soon as there was damp weather the oiled tack became mouldy very quickly compared to the unoiled, so have stopped using it and use a balm instead

    Fly traps for stables

    Cut a plastic bottle in half, turn the top part over to make a funnel, part fill base with a sweet smelling liquid, fruit juice/cider/lager etc works well and string it up somewhere out of reach, amazing how many flies it catches

    Would you stay at a yard if

    Agree with the comments above and would say if you're not happy then 100% move Sometimes as liveries, it takes moving to a good yard, to actually realise how many issues we've put up with at a bad one

    Riding or horses?

    If I bought a horse that was then deemed unrideable then they're with me for life whatever, however I wouldn't knowingly take on an unrideable horse to be kept at livery, I would consider it if I had my own land and was looking for a compainion
