    Splint advice please....

    yep I would just check again tomorrow and work quietly a few days and monitor it but stop as soon as there is any sign of heat or pain. I wouldnt get the vet unless they were hopping and it could be fractured or it was near the knee. If it does flare up ice it then field rest a couple of weeks...

    riding a wet horse, what do you do?

Id warm my horse up the same way, if they were coming in cold and wet then I would be cursing myself for not having rugged my horse suitably..surely...

    How often do you Hack?

    I mainly hack now since my horse was diagnosed with spavins and couldnt cope with schooling but after a year of solid hacking she is now able to school and jump again so I do this maybe once/twice a week and hack between 1-4 hours the other 4/5 times!

    Hacking in Winterbourne / frampton cottrell??

    wickwar is rubbish for hacking! Horton/badminton ace. alveston/almindsbury also good. frampton/winterbourne do have bridleways but those roads would make hacking a bit hairy and would put me off. If you go chipping sodbury way you can hack to badminton as well as hinton/dyrham. PM me if you want...

    What supplement worked for you re; joints?

    i put mine on premierflex ha in summer which helped but became stiffer in winter so tried the plus version which is the same but with devils claw. I now have a very strong, fast pingy horse back which im having to learn to control again after 2/3 years of ploddy, resitant horse!
