    Mill Law/Primative Proposal

    I think you certainly need to go and meet the stallions to see how good etc their temperament and conformation are and how they compliment your mare. We met Mill Law before using him and we had no big ambitions with what we wanted to breed temperament was number one thing and a nice moving, well...

    Mill Law/Primative Proposal

    We have 2 mill law's out of a 3/4 ID mare and one on the way! The eldest is off to Le Lion D'Angers World Young Horse Champs next month!! They both have fabulous temperaments and are easy to do. I havent had a Primitive Proposal baby but knew and rode the stallion and had a lovely temperament...

    Where to sell/advertise potential 4* horse?

    I think when its unproven with nice breeding its as much a potential 4 star horse as everyone elses "potential" horses so in that way it doesnt really matter where it advertised - BE/Horsequest/H&H as until it has been out and done a bit and got some results and proved that it is more than a bit...

    Am I way out on price? Why have I not had much interest in my schoolmaster?

    I know him from his previous life with JP and Laurence!! Lovely horse! Does he have to be sold? In my experience (and I have one!) these are the sort of fabulous horses who should go out on long lovely loans with people who are competitive and want to do that sort of thing but also want them...

    Working horse owners, tell me what you do

    Thats what I qualified as and there are very few jobs out there unless you're very flexible (or were a few years ago) and there are plenty of my friends who qualified and are still on the rubbish pay bands - not sure of any who started over £20k but there are some now that have managed to get...

    Houghton CIC*** The good, bad and crash (unpleasant pics)

    I watched your SJ round and she looked really fabulous, was so pleased for you. Horrified to hear you had a fall but really glad that she's on the road to recovery and nothing too serious for both of you. You can be 2 star queens!!

    Spider @ Houghton CCI* Report

    Houghton – Brilliant!! Spider (our homebred Mill Law 7 year old) was doing his first CCI*, he’s done quite a few CIC*’s but never a CCI and we thought that although proven at that level (and given his round at Chatsworth he obviously doesn’t find it very challenging) it...

    Houghton This Weekend - Who Will Be There??

    My boy is there in the CCI* he goes XC tomorrow and yesterday the ground was very poor - they have watered the arenas just not the XC. Hope they work miracles tonight, having paid £500 to enter we won't be impressed if they dont get it good especially after Hambleden, Chatsworth, Aston etc have...

    Manuka Honey

    I used it on a very bad over reach last year and it healed it very well. I couldnt keep anything else on it and couldnt keep the wound dressed either so just needed soemthing that stayed on and healed. The mare was always chewing at the cut and litereally as soon as I started using honey she...
