    Utterly Stumped!

    Hi. I am an instructor and have had a few clients who have had feelings of nausea and had to abandon the lesson. One lady had suffered with vertigo and the motion of going round in circles flared it up. She was fine going large around the arena but on the lunge felt immediately sick. So in her...

    Hiya, for my humble 2 pennethworty? i thought there were a lot of horrible accuracy questions which caused a lot of problems for many combinations. I dislike that cross country is turning into corners and skinnies and acute angles everywhere! way too many of them at Pau imo! Also agree that...

    Where to go next, bit wise.

    Sounds like you had the curb chain too tight on the pelham. Try it again with a much looser curb and see how you get on

    Dealing with a kicker

    Radiance gold. A gut supplement made with mainly healthy bacteria. I had an stressed ulcery horse on it and he was calmer and happier within a week. Amazing stuff!

    Horse economy shrinking?

    Interesting thread! I teach kids at a riding school and see some real passion for horses and riding from most of them. I have some cracking little jockeys but unfortunately the majority of their parents are bemused/ clueless and will not be willing to support that child beyond one or 2 lessons a...

    How can you tell if an unbacked horse is going to be good?

    great advice thankyou for sharing. I have a 3 year old filly in my field at the moment. she is definitely in the cheeky/ pushy camp so that's a plus point!

    Still more bitting issues!

    I’d be tempted to try a micklem bridle. My horse is fussy in the contact and gets her tongue over every bit, no matter the noseband, but she is more settled in the micklem and her tongue stays put (most of the time). X

    Hi. I have found it to be an excellent bit of kit. I have a connie who has learnt to balance his canter beautifully using the equi ami. He is now really consistent in his ridden canter work i feel the equi ami helped a lot

    Advice needed for vet visit due tomorrow please?

    I had a mare that sounds very similar. Spoilt as a youngster. No respect for personal space at all. Would walk through you for food. Nappy when she wanted to be but talented. If she was pointing in the direction she wanted to go in would jump anything in her path with ease. But if she didnt...

    How good can I realistically get (opinions/experiences?)

    sounds like you need to be riding better quality horses, the beginner horses are ok for learning the basics on but if they are not carrying you forward willingly then you will not progress your riding further. i teach in a riding school and there comes a point when the clients need to move up a...
