    Natural horsemanship for dogs

    I've been on HHO for donkeys years but rarely venture into the dog section as I don't have a dog. I'm here for my sister .. My sister (who has had several working dogs previously) now has a male springer spaniel puppy from a strong working line. He's about six months old and, as I see it, has...

    Tack cleaning - how often??

    I wipe over with tack cleaner after every use and take apart to clean every few weeks. Can anyone recommend a good saddle soap/tack cleaner or conditioner that doesn't make the leather look dull - or rather actually makes it shine please?

    Which insurance company do you use?

    I no longer have vet cover as my horse now has so many exclusions, but previously I had insurance with SEIB. They were brilliant - couldn't fault them. They paid out far more than I ever paid in.

    Remedial Shoeing in Thoroughbreds - How practical and how successful?

    As previously mentioned, Pro Hoof by Progressive Earth is brilliant. My ISH with dreadful TB feet (flat, no heels, laminitis, corns) now has great hoof quality which has enabled my farrier to keep her sound and comfortable.
