    DIY/part livery nr. Exeter wanted for beginning of October

    My best friend goes to Exeter uni but had to leave her boy at home because she wasn't allowed a car in her first year. Just something to bear in mind :) maybe look for a yard on a bus route? edit - oops it doesnt say which year you're in, so this might be a completely useless point :p

    Polite Notice Hi-Viz

    I think its a great idea and I always wear mine hacking out, but some people are complete idiots and think if its a police horse it must be safe and go past really close to my horse! or.. Maybe I dont look intimidating enough to be a policewoman! :p Going to get the hatband and exercise sheet...

    Riding with radio/music

    I sometimes school with one earphone in if I have a lot of fittening work to do, otherwise I get quite bored! I never hack with my ipod though.

    Buying an 18 year old horse...advice?

    My boy is 20 now and he is actually getting better with age. He has had several injuries from a high-mileage past but with careful management he is unstoppable. I would only say that the winter with a veteran can be quite difficult if they have arthritis, a few winters ago I actually considered...

    confidence is real low...

    Maybe lunge her before you ride to take the edge of her? I did this with my ex-racer who had had some time off due to me being injured.
