    Best waterproofs (for me and horse!)

    So having got soaked once this week already, I am online shopping for waterproofs. First, for me. I am looking for a decent pair of waterproof trousers that will keep me dry all day out in the rain but that will also be suitable for riding. I don't mind spending a bit more for good ones, but...

    Too honest?

    Hi All, I am looking for some advice. I have advertised a horse for sale and because I want to find the most suitable home I have been 100% honest about the horse's history and I wonder if I am putting people off? I have been looking at ads for similar types of horses and they do not give...

    Livery Winkfield/maidenhead

    I put this in comp riders, but realised it's probably better in here! I'm looking for livery for the winter. DIY/assisted. I've just started a new job and still getting into a new routine so if they would feed and t/o am would be handy. I'm hoping to find a sharer to compete my horse as I...

    How much for this point to pointer?

    Hi, A friend of mine in Ireland has been approached by someone in the UK wanting to buy a point to point horse that she owns and they have asked what she would like for the horse. Not strictly comp riders, but I know that a few people here go p2ping. They want the horse as a schoolmaster, he...

    Good first novice of the season?

    Hi All, I was just wondering whether Larkhill or South of England would be a better first novice of the season for a horse that did a couple of novices last season but was a little bit green at this level still? I've just emailed both entries sec's to see if they are still accepting entries...

    Home made haybars?

    Hi, I like my horses to eat hay from the floor but they seem to love dragging it through the bed and pooing on it, which seems to waste hay and bedding! With 8 stables I'm not too keen to splash out on that many haybars, and was wondering if anyone had made their own, and if so how did they...

    Where to sell Long leather riding boots?

    Hi, I have a pair of cavallo riding boots that I bought when doing my BHS exams in 2003 (!), I managed to wear them about four or five times, then didn't wear them for a while and my calves had got a little too wide for them when I next put them on! I've hung onto them for ages in the hope...

    Where to find Hartpury CIC** dressage results

    I've just had a look on the Hartpury website and they have a list of the scores in the order that the riders went, but no list in order of placings so far. Does anyone know where I might find a list in order of placings? Seems a bit silly to not put a leaderboard after dressage unless it is...

    Horse transport companies, advice please

    I'm not sure if this is the right place to post about this but I figured people in here are more likely to have had experience with horse transport companies. I'm looking to transport my horse from West Cork in Ireland, to Cambridgeshire, not far from Newmarket. I was just wondering if...

    Phoebe Buckley for reschooling/selling horse?

    For several reasons I have decided to sell my horse. I moved to Ireland a few months ago and don't really have time to ride him at the moment, let alone sell him so I have decided given this, and the fact that he is a bit sharp the best thing to do will be to send him back to the UK on sales...

    Late dressage report

    This is a bit late as we actually went last sunday! So, having given my horse far too long a holiday due to moving to Ireland and starting new job, I finally got him back into work and (just about) fit enough to do a couple of dressage tests. I hadn't done as much schooling as I would have...

    Hi, I've just found some dressage for the weekend but the entries close this evening and I can't get hold of the tests until tomorrow.

    Update on restraining a horse: Thank you HHOers!

    I posted at the weekend about ideas for restraining a mare who needed a serious amount of dressing on her leg. I was dreading changing the dressing today as OH was not around, so me and another girl had to do it. My friend neck-twitched the mare and she stood still from start to finish, didn't...

    RSL Isowind gloves

    I was just wondering if anyone knew where to get a pair of these gloves from as they are waterproof and windproof and thin enough to ride in. I can't find anywhere online that sells them and I can't even find a website for the manufacturer. I wore through the fingers of my last pair and my...

    How much does it cost to feed your horse per month?

    I'm posting this in here because I was interested in feeding a horse that is competing. I was trying to budget for next year (got my organised head on today ) and was trying to work out how much per month I spend on feed, but I wasn't sure if I'd worked it out right at all. So I was wondering...

    I apologise if this has been discussed before, but I haven't seen a post on it. Also, I know it's not strictly competition riders but I only really read this part of the forum and feel at home here (even though I don't actually post that much) and would be interested in people's opinions. I...
