    Are WB’s wimps?

    Depends on the day... he took a massive great chunk out of the back of his knee last summer and remained sound pretty much the entire healing process (4 months). It was really really gory and involved me scrubbing it daily - all of which he stood like an angel for. He was only lame when he got...

    Equi Release gun

    I have one, which I bought to use on my boys rump, hamstrings and on his neck (carefully).. However my husband has stolen it. He uses it every day on his lower back (he's a farrier so gets a lot of soreness there) and really rates it. I've used it 4 times on my boy who is very sensitive and...

    JB - Just caught up on all of this. Glad to hear MR JB is ok - but what a shock. I know after having Freddie how an aggressive dog can really change your view on dogs and also create an unhappy household. My dogs never switched off, always on alert the entire time he was here. Big hugs, you...

    Horsey 2020 review

    Started the year with 3, hopefully ending the year with 3. At the beginning of 2020, I had two of my horses at a yard which I thought was going to be amazing but ended up being awful. I had a 2yo and a 7yo both cooped up with no turnout for weeks and weeks - despite my every effort to persuade...

    Should I put on a medium rug

    Agree with the others, depends on the horse. I have a very hot warmblood, he's fully clipped and out in a standard lightweight rug. I tried putting a 180 on him last week and he ripped it trying to get it off (he will stand there and pull the bottom of the rug), so he's back in a LW and much...

    Anyone got an Albion XW for sale?

    Hello! Not sure if this is even allowed (sorry if its not TFC).. I'm desperately in search for an 17.5/18" Albion in XW (dressage/gp or jump considered). Don't suppose anyone has one in the cupboard they want to sell?

    weekend plans

    It went better than anticipated! We won our intro and came second in the prelim. He didn’t settle well in the warm up but managed two relatively ok tests outside so I’m pleased. Yet again a pleasure to take out and definitely less “talky” today!

    An action shot from last weekend of the newly named “rocket pony” and a jumping one too, excuse naff position! This weekend we have a country canter planned, was quite excited as wanted to inspect the fences at the venue (which is also a BE venue) but think it’s going to rained off/too windy to...

    Weekend plans!

    Great day had, he was much stickier this weekend but started to flow after fence 7. Definitely better over the bigger fences. He flew round, rather quickly (25 seconds to quick) but clear. His second hunter trial so I am thrilled with him!! Feel bad for whizzing round So fast but we were having...
