    Stupidest things YOU'VE said or done?

    Many things! I once left my injured (lame) mare tired up, tightly, in the stable, whilst I went to call the vet, with her stall guard chain done up, but the stable door open. Came back from the house to find out outside her stable, panicking because her rope was now very tight. How on earth...

    Bitting advice

    Ah OK. You could try a loose ring with a copper roller mouthpiece, as this will discourage her from leaning or taking hold of the bit.

    Bitting advice

    Firstly, have you checked her teeth/ back/ saddle first, just to make sure she's not being awkward because she's in pain? As you say she's very green, I'd recommend lots of schooling to get her more responsive, as opposed "sticking a piece of metal in her mouth", so to speak - finding a good...

    Clipping now?

    I did my mare's final clip on Monday. All I did was clip her legs off (she had been hunter clipped since October), as her summer coat is already (slowly) starting to come through on her body. If your horse's summer coat is already starting to come through, then no, I wouldn't clip, however if...

    What Length Girth Does your 14hh-ish Pony Take?

    My 14hh NF takes a 36" girth, which has to be done up on the highest holes, as it's a tad big.

    Sad update on "always lame TB"

    Oh how sad. I'm very sorry. As the above poster has said, perhaps you should give yourself a bit of time before making further decisions, and then see what you want to do. Many hugs to you at this awful time. x

    Roll up! Roll up!! Get the answer you're looking for RIGHT here. NO problem too big..

    Great, thank you! Id love to look like a pro. Oh yeah, im sure you could make your own, its only rope besides, an making your own would mean that you dont have to pay unnecessary money to. In fact, i'm sure you could get a secondhand one off fb.

    Hi. I have a really pretty piebald cob horse I rescued from the meat man a year ago. He was going really well until a month ago, and now he is really lame (about 9/10s), but only in canter, and when we are schooling. He can't even stay in a straight line without almost falling over, and bobs...
