    Vouchers for prizes for BE eventing

    I have won two lots of vouchers for Blue Chip - great, except I feed Topspec! I gave them away, so someone else got to benefit from my prizes :-(

    Black tack and dressage.....

    I could have bought a black dressage saddle off the peg but had to have one made to order as I was insistent on brown! I HATE black tack!

    Expert help - revisit fee

    I'm confident it isn't the trailer (regularly serviced equitrek with aluminium floor) or the driving (husband who ran his own horse transport business for many years) and the horse always travels really well once he's actually in! I have had the horse for 11 years and he's always been tricky to...

    Expert help - revisit fee

    It was for loading, they showed me what to do at the end of the session, but by then my horse was loading himself, so I didn't really get to know what I should do if he was to start to question it again. I asked and got a brief explanation, but putting it in to practice when they arent there to...

    Expert help - revisit fee

    Thanks, they did a great job and loved their methods but I didn't expect my boy to relapse, so not sure what the usual protocol is! It's an awful lot of money to find every few months of he's going to keep doing it :-S

    Expert help - revisit fee

    Would you expect an expert who helped you with an issue with your horse to charge the full fee again if you started to experience the exact same problems again less than a year later?

    Pre-riding excersies?

    Hi Could anyone recommend some exercises/stretches I could do to limber up before schooling my horse? It has occurred to me recently that I put a lot of effort in to warming up and loosening him off at the start of a session and I should maybe do the same for myself! I also want to...

    Neue Schule Weymouth - curb hooks wrong way round?!

    That's a good point PS, I will make sure I try it on him before I go messing! If in doubt I'll try Neue Schule for some advise and get my trainer to have a look too. I'm a bit of a novice where the double is concerned so i want to make sure I'm doing it right, haven't fitted one since I had to...

    Neue Schule Weymouth - curb hooks wrong way round?!

    Thanks, I thought that... maybe I'll get my other half to have a go, he's a zillion times stronger than me! Just not sure how the seller has managed to use the bit in the past, very odd!
