    The things you find

    I once had a large metal spring in my bale of hay, presumably from the machinery used to harvest the hay, my horse just ate around it, lol!

    Fitting Lemieux half lined close contact numnah

    my jumping saddle was fitted straight onto the horses back, then saddle fitter advised me to use a half wool lined saddlecloth underneath, so the saddle wasnt fitted with the saddlecloth on. I now use the saddle with the lemieux half wool underneath and not had any problems.

    Accident/pretty shocking driving

    It just brings home how dangerous it really is when we ride on the roads.

    phew, i'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks they're ugly. Can't say any of the photos I've seen of them whilst having a little look tonight have been flattering to the horse.

    'the one' - when did you know?

    I know it goes against all the sensible horse buying rules but I knew the second I saw his photo on the advert! He was completely not what I was supoosed to be looking for but I couldnt get him off my mind. Basically as long as he didnt do anything disasterous during the viewing I was fairly...

    Shopping help needed!
