    Choosing puppy from litter (GSD)

    Hi, just wondering if anyone has any advise on choosing a puppy from a litter? After many months we have finally chosen the perfect litter which we are very excited about and we are in the fortunate position to have 2nd pick. We have always gone for the puppy that tends to ‘choose us’ in a...

    How to get a ‘bigger’ canter

    Very good point, I should have been more specific. I just want a bigger, more bouncy canter. I guess more energy is needed which will come with fitness (working on it). But are there any exercise to improve the impulsion and ‘bounce’ aside from this. For sj and low level dressage. tia :)

    Clincher Browband

    Hi, I've seen quite a few of these around recently and I just wondered what people think about them? I quite like them but I can't decide if I would want one or not. Are they usually used on certain colours or types of horses or for a specific discipline? TIA

    Taking horse to University

    I am just finishing up my degree and I really was so worried about going to university because feared I would miss my horse too much (see one of my threads from three years ago - https://forums.horseandhound.co.uk/threads/missing-your-horse.735029/#post-13347051 ). I was never in the position to...

    Smart country/ riding boots

    My mum is going to take up riding again, just hacking once or twice a week at the most. It won't be anything more than wondering around on a very, very safe horse. So I am wanting to buy her some country boots or similar. I know that they are not the best for riding but she wants something...

    Introducing Puppies

    I would probably work on her anxiety first, "leave her" (just walk away from your door so she thinks you have left) for increasingly short periods and come back and reward when she is quiet.

    Heather Moffett seatbone saddle saver

    Obviously it is quite expensive so was just wondering if they are worth the money or if there are any cheaper alternatives? I’m finding my wintec saddle really uncomfortable especially on longer hacks! Thanks

    Anyone given up riding for a while because of being too heavy?

    I haven’t experienced this but I hope I can offer some help! Firstly I think it’s important to rule out any metabolic issues/ other health issues that could be preventing weight loss and it’s always good to be certain that your body is up to increasing your exercise level to be on the safe side...

    What do you look for when looking for a loaner for your horse?

    Although it is difficult you can definitely find reliable loaners! I think its a good idea to start the loan maybe 6 month or so before you go away, then you can be sure that they are serious! As others haves said, its a good idea to have a plan B - like turning away?

    Travel boots

    I would try to find out what the issue is first, maybe look at using a camera to record her in the trailer or get someone in there with her for a short trip?

    Would this make a horrific mess?

    Im not sure how much hay you would need to put down but I would have thought it will just add to the volume making scraping it up more difficult? Also may not actually stop the horses from turning it up as their weight is not as well distributed as a wheel barrows/ and obviously also them being...

    Horses at home- riding motivation?

    I think its important to get my horse out and working regularly/ pretty much everyday. Although they're perfectly happy in their fields/ stables and when the weather is really bad we are also usually much happier tucked up inside I do think they really need to be worked mentally and physically...
