    Update from Ruby and I

    It's fantastic to hear such a lovely, positive update! Well done on getting her over her fear of the trailer, that was a big problem for me and my loan horse, so it's reassuring to hear other people's success stories :) And it's great that she's settled down at shows. We need to see some pictures!

    Can I start Pony club?

    You could definitely join! I didn't join Pony Club until I was 15, and I still really, really enjoyed it :D It might also be helpful for your horse because you'll probably do quite a variety of activities. As a previous poster said, Pony Club is more about learning and good horsemanship than...

    It sounds like you had a brilliant day, despite the awful weather!

    Plan of action needed!

    The transformation is great, he looks so much better (and very cute)! Obviously you've made a great impression on the judges who've seen you, so you're doing something right! However, re: schooling, I would suggest finding some exercises which you think would keep him engaged while at the same...

    Help me choose!

    I'm voting for the baltic blue or the green, it will look amazing on him - he's not too bright to be able to pull it off! Handsome lad by the way :) . The anthracite is perfectly nice, just the other two are far more striking.

    Bridle for small, dainty head

    I have a Collegiate hunter bridle in cob sized for my Connie X, she's got a very small head and is quite dished, and I think it suits her really well!

    Doing horses in Pjs

    The only time I've worn pjs to do the horses was on Pony Club camp, because we were on a competition yard and had to feed really early when they fed theirs :) If they're kept at home I can understand though, although it's not something I would do - I always wear pj shorts and I reckon I'd be a...

    Hay help?!

    Thanks everyone for your advice! Yes, I would say I'm quite happy with her weight going into spring, she does tend to get a big belly rather than becoming 'fat' when the grass comes through! Unfortunately because the yard I'm on is in a suburban area there is very careful management of the...

    Hay help?!

    I am soon going to be taking a horse on full loan. The horse in question is a 14.3/ 15hh Connemara X mare, 19 years old but not showing her age at all! Although I've known her for 2 years, I'm starting to worry about how much hay she needs - at the moment I would say she looks a good weight, I...

    Doing the horses in work clothes....

    I go to the yard straight from school, and I often just put my boots on before skipping out - although I'm usually in jeans and a t-shirt, so it's not quite as obvious! :D

    DIY Livery- what's included in the price at your yard?

    It's £35/ week where I am. This includes a stable with a small private "tack room" at the back for storage, turn out, and use of the floodlit school whenever :) We leave the morning feed and a wedge of hay outside our stables for the morning and the owner puts them in so that the horses don't...
