    Tack shop in Yorkshire. . Wolds area.

    R and R is probably the best imo, rideaway I haven't found as well stocked since it was taken over by pets at home. Robinsons also has a good variety but isn't as big. There are also smaller ones such as BATA near Stamford bridge which is worth a look if your passing although you couldn't spend...

    Best hoof boots for a cob

    So I'm in the position where it's looking like hoof boots are going to be needed for my cob, at least at the front. He is getting footy over stones, he is better on smooth Tarmac but not 100%. I have never used boots before and it seems like a bit of a minefield! They would be used only for...

    Question for all Grooms

    Oh I know, I'm 18 so it's not as far under as it would be if I was older but still pretty rubbish. But to begin with I wasn't working as many hours as I had help. Now they have increased and I'm expected to do increasingly more for very little money. So I've handed my notice in as I also need...

    Question for all Grooms

    I was thinking of posting a similar thread, but by the sounds of it I'm not actually as slow as I think I am! Basically I do rug changes, muck out, hay, water, poo pick by hand, bring in and turnout between 11-13 horses. It generally takes me from 8-3.30 and then I have my own horse and...

    Annoying Cough ....

    Mine has had a bit of a cough as well, I've found soaking hay (I put mine in an old bath tub and chuck about five buckets of water over it and then leave it for a few hours) has really helped although not completely eradicated the problem. I tried a supplement and it didn't seem to do much good.

    Another FB video for debate..

    The dealer is from around my area, haven't heard many good reports! Have to say though the horse doesn't look bothered at all, how're certainly not what I'd do and I'm not sure it displays the correct level of professionalism for running a business. But then, each to their own!

    What should I pay ?

    £5 seems fair to me, about a standard hourly rate for a teenager. I'm 18 and get paid £30 to do 8 hours of yard work so I don't think your being unfair at all especially as she is getting good experience out of it.

    Compulsory adjective! How would you describe yours?

    Sensible I think! As much as I love him he could never be classed as 'stunning' so you are saved from that particular word - not that he will ever be for sale.

    Neck covers for amigo rugs

    I'd seen the one from rideaway but not the saddlery shop - the heavy one is exactly what I'm looking for. Thanks very much.

    Neck covers for amigo rugs

    I am trying to find a heavyweight neck cover for my amigo stable rug however it is proving almost impossible - any that I've found are a high enough price I might as well buy an entire new combo rug! Is there any other brands which can be used in conjunction with amigo rugs? Thanks!
