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...
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.
Thank you for all the replies, They are nice and traditional looking! Does anyone have any experience with Mountain horse bridles? Looking at this - https://equizoneonline.com/products/calypso
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?
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...
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...
I have recently bought a leather headcollar from PE but its so new and clean i'm now a bit worried to use it!! Does anyone have any advice on keeping them in good condition or do people recommend just keeping them for travelling and shows instead of everyday use?
Obviously it is quite expensive so was just wondering if they are worth the money or if there are any cheaper alternatives?
Im finding my wintec saddle really uncomfortable especially on longer hacks!
I havent experienced this but I hope I can offer some help! Firstly I think its important to rule out any metabolic issues/ other health issues that could be preventing weight loss and its always good to be certain that your body is up to increasing your exercise level to be on the safe side...
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?
Hi I hope this kind of post is allowed!
I'm on the committee for my universities Equestrian and Polo society and I really want to try to gain some new sponsorship for the club. We're a successful club and can offer different packages to companies including having their logo on team...
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...
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...
