    Ex Racehorse wanted

This man is also quite capable of taking something straight out of training as this is what he's done previously & I think likes the challenge .., as long as it's not completely bonkers. Is there anyone in a training yard...

    Children's Pony - what to go for?

    Don't be afraid to try them out yourself! I'm 5'5 & no skinny minny but hopping on a few before I'd let my daughter on told me a lot! I obv checked owner was happy with this 1st but it's the best way of feeling what the pony is like & testing reactions. We nearly bought one till I hopped on & it...

    *Bit of a rant* Unpleasant girls at yard!

    A colleague I worked with never bitched but gave people funny nicknames (not usually to their face!) & it just used to make me smile & diffuse the situation if I was tempted to have a moan about them! One particularly inefficient person called Steve was christened Stevie wonder for example-silly...

    Opinions on this pony please

    You can get Dun new forests! She looks v sweet! So hard to tell from one pic with angles/brightness of photo etc-thought she might look a bit long in the cannons tho but could look completely different in the flesh & prob worth a punt in any case for that money!!

There's a hedge on my ride opposite a small caravan park absolutely riddled with poo bags which...
