    Spotting SI pain/disorder

    This is a fab wee video, very clear and with real horse examples. Obvious caveat that you get a vet out if you suspect any disorder.

    Trouble at PFK

    What on earth is going on over there? Marte has gone, there are concerns about the accounting (not inferring she is involved) and they are being helped by someone who didn’t have a good word to say about them. Odd.

    Gut bacteria and laminitis

    Anyone seen the stuff posted on fb by Affluent Malnutrition? I can't remember the name of the company, but they sell Phytolean. Anyhow, they are doing some interesting research into the difference in gut bacteria between horses prone to laminitis and those who are not. Presumably with the...

    SI dysfuction

    This is very interesting, came up on my feed as I'm on a fb group for horses with PSD. Of course, I've now convinced myself that both of mine have ALL the symptoms. Sigh.

    Barefoot Help

    The lady who looks after my boys' feet has co-authored a book. This is a shameless plug for it! It will be published this summer, information on it is available on fb. It is Barefoot Horse Keeping - The Integrated Horse. Jane is one of the kindest, most gentle people I have met. I count...

    Laminitis and travel stress

    I have been offered the most wonderful retirement for my old boy, as a companion to his field and stable mate. Problem - field mates owner is moving hundreds of miles away. It is so kind of her to offer to take my boy with her, I am so, so very grateful. The journey will involve a ferry trip...

    PR training

    I have a 13 year old warmblood, ex-showjumper. He was very good at his job, and may have been over-indulged as a result. Think spoilt, a bit bolshy but not nasty. About 2 weeks ago I started using positive reinforcement to install some manners, with small bits of carrots as a reward. I am...

    Treeless saddle & rising trot

    I've recently acquired a treeless saddle and really like it - however I find it difficult to rise to the trot and end up doing a weird rocking thingy. I had no idea how much a treed saddle pushed you upwards/forwards. What should I be doing? M

    Disturbing horse owner behaviour

    Having been away from horses for years, I find myself bemused by some of the stuff I read. However, one thing which drives me insane is the way some people refer to themselves as their horses' "Mummy". Excuse me, but why? It sets my teeth on edge something awful. There are "proud Mummies"...
