    Problems with Tack up Ltd?

    Hi there, has anyone else had problems with ordering from this company? I have not received my items for a long time and they don't answer e-mails or the phone? I know this has been posted about in the past - but wondered if anyone else had had problems with them recently and what they had done...

    Silly question time - thinning scissors

    Yea, chopping and then using the thinning scissors gives it a more natural edge, useful if your horse doesn't like the mane being pulled.

    Silly question time - thinning scissors

    I've never used a solo comb actually - are they any good? Any quicker? How do they work?

    Silly question time - thinning scissors

    Always use thinning scissors vertically. Cut only a small amount of the hairs in its grip - which it's designed to do anyway. Scissor up on the mane and then comb through as you go along. Always works best for me. Best to use after exercise - hairs come out more easily , less stress for the...

    Advice Please - Discovered my new mare rears...

    Yes definitely ditto the leading in hand! Again - you're in control on the ground and therefore in control of the situation. Also just remembered - don't use the whip. This really winds them up and you can get into the pattern of the horse rearing higher and higher. Try asking for leg yield to...

    Advice Please - Discovered my new mare rears...

    My horse used to nap and rear a lot. It's a nightmare but you just have to persevere and it sounds like you handled it really well. I actually think riding in company can make a horse more nappy so maybe try and avoid that for now - it reenforces the need to have horses around her but at the...

    Canter problems with my 18 yr old

    Hi. I'm having some problems schooling my horse and wondered if I could get some tips. My horse has recently (last three months) struggled with the transition from trot to canter on the right rein. She had a new saddle fitted recently and the problem hasn't gone away. Instead of just cantering...

    Turning my mare out with geldings

    I was just concerned about the possibility of them maybe fighting over her. She's in season at the mo as well. Really stupid question but do geldings still get horny? Lol

    Turning my mare out with geldings

    Hi there. Ive recently had to move my mare into a field with two young geldings because when she was turned out with a group of mares at the yard she was getting bullied. My mare (having said that) is quite dominant and clashed with another dominant mare in that group. I've turned her out with...

    comments please

    I get someone else to school her for me twice a week which has really helped but can't really afford lessons at the mo, so that is why I've put off competing .

    comments please

    Hi - this is my horse Caff , just wanted to have some comments on her - what people think etc. Been working very hard to try and get her fit, but not sure if she's at her ideal weight yet or not. Think her canter still needs a lot of work but let me know. Hope I'm allowed to post this here...
