    Charging the leisure battery in the horsebox

    Can someone give me an idiot proof guide? The battery has always charged off the lorry battery whilst driving and not been a problem. A few months ago the lorry battery was flat and I had to get someone out to start it. I did a few short journeys after that so didn't switch the water/light...

    Area Festival 2nd rounds question and a bit of frustration!

    I'm a bit confused as to whether I've definitely qualified or not! We attended the 1st rounds in June and came 7th with a fairly average score of 62.8%. The venue we attended said this was a qualification for the 2nd rounds and yet I've had no correspondence from BD or Pet Plan to confirm this...

    Hi Viz waterproof rugs

    Can anyone recommend a good quality Hi Viz exercise sheet that is waterproof but suitable for using in the summer? All the waterproof ones I've found are generally fleece lined which will be too hot for use in the summer. I have a 'polite' one that I use at the minute, but with the horrible rain...

    Muvi hack cam

    Just wondering if anyone can enlighten me how to wipe the SD card on a mac computer? I think I've done it correctly. Its just the SD card fills up really quickly (before the end of the hack usually!)

    Club show-jumping finals Stoneleigh

    Has anyone been? I've qualified for 2 classes and its in 'arena C'..... does anyone know if this is a grass arena? I've never jumped this particular horse on grass and so would either have to get a great deal of practice in before going or give it a miss as its a very long way for me to go...

    Quick barefoot supplement question

    My old mare (22), has been shod all her life. I took her hind shoes off 2 years ago. She is currently on haylage and small feed of chaff and pro-balance. She has good feet, but her frogs have been deteriorating over the last few years to the point that they are no longer weight bearing. On...

    BS club SJ final

    According to the BS website the top 20 combinations are invited to compete in the final at Stoneleigh. As far as I am aware, this league ran til the end of June..... I reckon I am in the top 20 at my height.... however I've heard absolutely nothing from BS. I assume that they write to you to...

    Done to death I know.... but hoof boots....

    Dee's feet have got a lot bigger since going barefoot and so the old macs I got for her at the start no longer fit. After much conversation with the extremely kind and informative lady at the hoof boutique we seemed to have narrowed the suitable boots down to either renegades or cavallos. These...

    Winter regionals

    Does anyone know if the dates on the BD website are for the up and coming winter regionals or for the ones already been and gone this year? Just trying to work out when to book time off work for and don't think it's very clear!

    Electical hook up (daft question alert!!!)

    My new lorry has electrical hook up. A luxury I've never had before. What is the difference between the orange and the blue cables before I buy something inappropriate! And also (and sorry if this is a really stupid question) is it possible to recharge the lorry battery via hook up or is it...

    New lorry (pic) and a daft question

    Daft question about the battery in the living. It charges off the lorry battery. There are several switches. I know I need to switch the ones marked water pump and lights off when not in use. But the is one that has a 3 way setting .... Neutral, lorry battery and living battery..... The living...

    DAF owners

    Got my new Horsebox on Thursday. It's a 57 plate DAF. It has a digital clock display and its telling the wrong time. Any ideas how to change it? I have no handbook and there doesn't seem to be any obvious control buttons :-/

    Micklem bit straps

    Does anyone know anywhere where you can purchase the bit straps alone? I use a full cheek snaffle on my girl and would need the longer bit straps than the ones provided with the bridle because of the smaller rings on the bit. I rang horseware who weren't particularly helpful :-/. I can't seem to...

    Taking hind shoes off old mare

    I've two horses, one barefoot and one shod. Both are out muzzled at night and in with haylage during the day. They both get a small feed of chaff. The barefoot horse also gets pro hoof and micronised linseed. The old horse just gets a broad spectrum vitamin and mineral supplement. I'm going to...

    Viewing a dressage test online without downloading?

    Anyone know where I can do this? Don't mind if there is a small fee. Have just realised I am doing P17 a week on Sunday and the copy I have is 2002 version and there's now a 2014 version! I've ordered the new one from BD but guess it'll come middle of next week which doesn't give me long to...

    Anyone doing the area festival at Frys?

    I've had an email from BD/petplan to say we've qualified..... and am going to trail down to Frys as my more local venue is on a weekend when I'm working (bloody work spoils everything lol) As per my previous post, its not going to affect me qualifying for the winter regionals so I've decided to...

    Area festival vs regionals

    I know I'm not supposed to do both. I've definitely got scores to qualify for the area festival this year, and have 12 of the 19 points I need at prelim for the winter regionals and hope to have the remaining points well before the November cut off point. As the winter regionals aren't til...

    pads for hoof boots

    How often do they need changing? I only really use boots for roadwork, but after Dee bruised her sole I changed the pads to thicker softer ones for anything out of the arena. Last week I changed them back to the medium ones, and when I removed the soft ones they are squashed to the point of...

    Dee's feet approx 7 mths in

    I'd be particularly interested in what people think of the right one! For anyone interested this is how they started http://www.horseandhound.co.uk/forums/showthread.php?651197-Dee-s-feet-6-weeks-on Some positive changes, and some odd changes too I think! The frogs are better than they...

    A grazing muzzle that stays on and doesn't rub....

    ......does such a thing exist??? My two are currently in dinky muzzles with fleece on the straps around the face as both girls get rubbed without fleece. The old mare has worked out how to get the muzzle off by rolling and rubbing it off on the ground. I watched her do it last night and it...

    Dee's feet 4 months on

    Although her feet have improved a lot I feel we've hit a bit of a plateau! Her frogs still look naff and heels still quite under run. Is it still early days??? She's sound on all surfaces except the stony track leading to the headlands round the farm, where she shortens her stride quite a bit...

    We survived.....

    In fact she stormed round! So that's our first hunter trial under our belt! She stepped back going into the water so we got penalties for that, but aside from that she never put a foot wrong. Even the two very wide tables didn't phase her at all. There were a few pony club kicks going on at...

    First hunter trial in several centuries tomorrow :-o

    Well it seemed like a good idea at the time lol. Having just walked the course I am now questioning my sanity lol Basically thought it'd be a nice jaunt for my old show jumper to have what I'd naively thought of as a jolly round the countryside with a few jumps thrown in. About half of the...

    "Blue cap" on lorry

    I've bought a new chassis to be shortly converted into a Horsebox. It's got this extra tank adjacent to the fuel tank, something to do with exhaust/fuel emissions I think. Don't have it on my old box. So my question is, how often does it need topping up and where can you get this done? Fuel...

    Fitting a myler bit

    Would anyone say it would be necessary to drop a size? Dee is a 5.25" in a regular bit. I tried her in a myler comfort snaffle with full cheeks. They come in 5" and 5.5". It was the 5.5" I tried and it seemed ginormous! Loads of "spare" bit sticking out the sides. However a 5" sounds awfully...
