    Cracked Wintec Tree?

    Hit Air or Point Two?

    Wanting to buy my mum an air jacket - she is a fairly experienced rider however she is getting older and she's riding a rather large 16.2 clyde when she's been riding a little 13.3 for the past 6 or so years. :) I think that getting her an air jacket may help and give her the confidence to give...

    Horses, who'd have them?!

    My day started off fine. Went to the yard, got back ache and then had a lesson. Lesson went fantastically (wasn't on either of my horses) and horse felt wonderful. Got home, had an accidental nap and then decided to go and ride the Cart Horse as he hadn't been ridden in a week or so. All is...

    Babying Horses...

    How do you stop someone from babying your horse (a family member) I have a horse who needs a lot of training yet everytime it does something wrong it gets cooed over by the family member and "awh baby it's okay *enter kisses*." I find this extremely annoying because the horse is getting praise...

    Weigh Bridges (Lorries!)

    Having never been to one and knowing that the new horse now fits, I am not positive we are under weight. Especially as we didn't have tack and kit in the lorry. What happens when you go to one with horses inside? And, on the occasion you are overweight what happens? Sorry, I am a numpty. :)

    Hound Puppy Walking

    We are literally a 10 minute walk (if that) from the local kennels and enjoy following hunting although don't hunt ourselves, would the hunt look at us being potential hound puppy walkers? Also, just wanted to know when the puppy walking starts? I can see very very small pups in the pens...

    We did some jum.. err leaping!

    Fern has been a bit difficult recently but wow today, her flatwork was outstanding - held herself in a lovely outline without me asking (!!) and was feeling particularly bendy today so we got a nice bit of bend (rather than looking the wrong way!) so we popped over a few small fences.. she...

    Engaging the hindquarters..

    I feel very stupid for asking this question.. :o How do I engage the hindquarters? I mean they are definitely moving but that isn't engaging. :) I have been told numerous times that if I can get my mare's hindquarters engaged then her coming onto the correct outline will be what she does...

    Confused about this video..

    I haven't dealt with Kissing Spines myself so could anyone explain why this person is still riding the horse having being diagnosed with Kissing Spines? I would have thought you wouldn't ride it or does riding sometimes help it? (completely clueless here) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vXcIzKMiO7o

    Just been told that someone in the field went to ride, came back and found they had a brick put through their back window!
