    Looking for Livery! Hastings area?

    Pebsham Equestrian Centre - well run, good facilities, good reputation, regular events. Not too far away in miles from where you are, but due to traffic you'll have to decide if you're able to get there twice a day... But they do offer assisted (and full) services for those days that you can't...

    Non-horsey people running a yard? What do you think?

    Sure, there's nothing stopping anyone from opening a livery yard, so yes it is possible. However for me personally, this won't be a yard that I would ever move to as I feel it's critical that there's a very knowledgeable and experiences horsey person available preferably '24 hours a day'. So...

    Rest in Peace, Ned

    I'm very sorry, Chan. You've paid a lovely tribute to him and it's great that you can reflect on loads of fun, happy and special times spent with him. It's a gorgeous photo that you've posted. Hang in there xxx

    Gaps in the Equine product and service market

    Oh gosh, LOVE that horse, and almost just as much the riding on a looong rein. I'm sure all the sure-footed Welsh horses at TransWales Trials would be able to complete that course too (not my Oldie, a TB, though).

    Eventing and frangible pins

    Thank you Shay. You've explained it all very well in a well-balanced post. Thanks for the much needed education on the topic.

    Eventing and frangible pins

    After reading about the very sad news of another Eventer who passed away after a rotational fall: How many jumps nowadays are made safe for horse and rider by using frangible pins (or other ways of making it a collapsable fence instead of a solid one)? Shouldn't this become mandatory across...

    Hoof pick monthly subscription service? 😂

    Really? I am genuinely puzzled by this, not trying to be rude. Is this because you don't own or aren't responsible for any equines any longer (lol)? Or are they all barefoot? Do you at least still check their soles daily for any embedded stones etc?

    Fancy dress charity ride

    Well done with the effort of making the unicorn but LOL, I would have laughed so much at the sight of that thang flopping up and down and left and right... I was wondering - it's not really fancy dress - but how about using (pink for breast cancer?) chalk and drawing your horse's skeletal...

    Massage or Heat pad

    Yes sorry, I should have clarified - I was referring to the handheld massage pad. If I win the lottery, I'll get an Equissage back pad.

    Massage or Heat pad

    I bought the Equilibrium massage pad at a discount on Black Friday - I think it was reduced from £120 to £80. I'm using it on my semi-retired TB and it helps so much with increased blood supply that when touching the muscle groups which I've just done, I can actually feel the heat coming from...

    Hyundai Santa Fe (4x4)

    I've possibly used to have a different model Santa Fe to yours, but was told it didn't have the towing capacity for the size/weight of my horse and the trailer which I was planning on buying. I'd strongly advice you to ask Rog - he's very kindly started a thread where you can ask all sorts of...

    How Not To Transport An Injured Rider...

    I'm guessing this was done during a first-aid type demonstration with a live audience? But judging from the pony's reaction, it seems as if this was the first time ever that he has been made to carry a board and dummy on his back... What were they trying to achieve by doing this? To make you...
