    Breasts the size of footballs!

    I'm exactly the same, I have a 28 underbust and find 28F the most comfortable and supportive, it's really not very big if you look at just the cups. It was a revelation when I went to bravissimo, I didn't think there was any way I could be above a D cup. Bra style matters a lot as well...

    Selling for the First Time :(

    One thing that helped me when I was selling was the fact every horse I've owned I've bought off someone else. If no-one was willing to sell I (along with most other people) would never have the opportunity to own a horse.

    What do top grooms earn?

    A friend of mine has just found a job as a head groom, they were getting offers between 400 and 500 a week including free accommodation and all bills paid. They have a lot more experience than 5 years though.

    Tokyo Pentathlon SJ

    I did BUCS a couple of years ago, you were only allowed 5 minutes and up to 4 practice jumps and then jumped a course up to 90cm. At regionals same practice time but a course of 1m, the final round of the finals is up to 1.20 and you still only get 5 mins warm up. 20 mins seems masses of time...

    I wouldn't have one unless I had my own place, it can be a nightmare trying to find livery for them and even if you do they can end up leading very isolated lives at a livery yard. I've worked with a number of them, most you wouldn't have noticed they were entire, they would happily hack out...

    the sew on labels you get for naming school uniforms are good, just sew them in a loop around a front buckle

    Curb chain query

    It could be but then you still have the same problem with a weymouth. Sprenger made them, think they were something like £50 a curb chain!

    Hay bags for stable - recommendations ?

    I have a haygrazer bag, it's about 6 months old and already one of the webbing straps has come apart from the top so the hole is bigger, can't say I'd recommend it.

    I've had feed companies out that do it for free so it's not something I'd pay for

    How to do a fast muckout

    This is the biggest thing for me, I can take 20 mins if I'm being slow or 10 mins if I pull myself together and just move quicker. It's the leisurely taking my time moving the fork from the bed to the wheelbarrow and back again that takes a surprising amount of time as opposed to trying to get...

    You’re predictions for the future of horse sport

    Without meaning to start a fight I think in the distant future all horse sport will end, the peta types will win and it will be unconscionable to ride a horse.

    Recommend - personalised neck strap

    Having seen a neckstrap go flying over the head and hanging underneath by the reins when the horse had a bucking fit I can understand the benefits of attaching it to the saddle. That's the thing with neckstraps, I almost never reach for it in an emergency but there's something psychologically...

    Recommend - personalised neck strap

    Salute equestrian do a personalised leather one but they're very pricey
