    The future of Acton Scot Farm

    That is very sad. My mum lives in Shropshire and we have been waiting for it to reopen so that we could take my 3yr old. We have been told it is very good by several different people. I hope they find a solution.

    Horses and a Baby

    I think it depends on how much support/ help you have and what your horse is like. I found it quite stressful. My horse was on full livery, she wasn't the easiest horse. Needed a consistent routine and wouldn't live out, but weaved when stabled. My first baby slept really well in the car so I...

    Terrible names

    We had a pony called Toad, he was very pretty! I've also met a Frog too. Also known a Brian (very pretty arab cross), a Norman ( a 13.2h show pony) and a Gary (sports horse)... they always make me smile as their names just don't suit them!!

    HHO's "Bear" project pony...

    Might be worth doing a bit of research on this as not all yeasts are the same. I only know about yeasacc for ruminants, rather than horses, but it was specifically meant to increase numbers of fibre digesting and lactic acid utilising bacteria in the rumen. There are lots of papers published on...

    Tokyo Pentathlon SJ

    I actually really like this idea. Maybe with an orienteering aspect to it so that they have to map read and navigate.

    Tokyo Pentathlon SJ

    I am not disagreeing with you. Yes, the horses are capable but I don't think it is a fair ask for them to jump round a 1.20m course with a strange rider after only a 20min introduction. However a 1.20m course on a known horse that you have a partnership with and that you have been able to train...

    Tokyo Pentathlon SJ

    MP makes sense as a natural progression from PC tetrathlon but I am not sure it works as an Olympic event. Compared to the heptathlon and triathlon the competitors don't seem to be of the same standard. Maybe having riders compete on their own horse would make the most sense. I think for an...

    RIP puss cat Zak

    Oh I have only just seen this post and I'm so sad. I'm so sorry for your loss. He was a beautiful dog and from all your other posts that I have seen he was clearly so loved by you. Thinking of you.
