    Very big horse owners!

    I have the same issue with my Clydesdale x TB - The TB has only lightened him to an extent. :D I tried a stubben noseband that I had laying around in full - really smart... Didn't even get halfway around his nose. :o Join #twittereventing on fb - I remember there being quite a few posts...

    Buyer Beware - PREMIER EQUINE

    My Amigo has done the same thing. Didn't complain - just sewed it back up! I once bought a Shires rug many years ago.. Horse managed to put a leg through the side overnight and he never touched or ripped his rugs! Place I bought from refused to refund so it got sent to the rug repairs for a...

    Working student video?

    Depends. If you're applying for a show jumping / eventing yard i'd try and borrow a friend's horse and jump some bigger courses if you can. I'd show myself riding a variety of different horses and show the basics - walk, trot, canter etc. Leg yield, shoulder in, half pass, flying changes or...

    Would Ted like a H&H friend?

    What about a Big Ted cross that acts and thinks he's a Small Ted? ;) Just imagine a herd of shitelands.. like a pack of very naughty dogs.

    Cotton backed light wool girth cover with Wintec girth?

    Girth covers are made for girths. Unless they are shaped covers there are no limitations.

    Anyone appealed land going to housing?

    Nope, when someone objected for our stables (they are no where near our property - on the other side of the village and were affected in no way - just grumpy hags) we were told who it was.

    Turnout in a Dually headcollar - would you?

    Put a chifney on it then - take chifney off and horse can just go. If horse starts to pull with it still stuck in its mouth you let go - it will come out!

    I'm torn between clydesdale or RID - your views please.

    He's still very heavy for a cross with TB. The feather has been minimised a lot but still has the movement of a clydesdale with added lightness. Although I work him at Novice level he is trained to about Elementary level and would easily do it with a dressage rider. And feet wise - if he wants...

    I'm torn between clydesdale or RID - your views please.

    My Farrier LOVES shoeing mine! Well.. he's barefoot but he loves doing him. Says it's because they have such fantastic feet. My lad goes about 9 weeks without issue.

    I'm torn between clydesdale or RID - your views please.

    You've seen my Clyde. Albeit a cross thoroughbred. He's very light on his feet! I'd say go for either. Whichever comes up and is most suitable. :)

    Do you lunge with gadgets

    De Gogue or draw reins on one. Pessoa (dislike though) or draw reins on the other.

    Cracked Wintec Tree?

    Would it be worth writing "broken tree" on the seat when putting it in the dump so no one tries to buy it out of the dump?

    Cracked Wintec Tree?

    Ah, don't worry! If I had known earlier I would have stopped using it but it's only because the crack is now visible when changing the gullet. Horse hasn't changed which is what confused me.. however now I have taken the gullet out and it's sitting on the saddle stand you can see it is all...

    Cracked Wintec Tree?

    Oh, trust me, it's not going to be used ever again! :) But i'll wait until my Father next makes a trip to the dump!

    Cracked Wintec Tree?

    Don't worry. Saddler said it would be worth just getting a whole new saddle as other things are starting to go wrong with it like the gullet bar too.. So i'll be chucking it into the skip once I find another saddle!

    Cracked Wintec Tree?

    Thank you! However, I have no clue how old the saddle is as it came with the mare 3 years ago and has always been visibly sound. Took it to saddler today and it a write off so off to look for a new saddle!

    Cracked Wintec Tree?

    I have just gone to replace my wintec gullet from a medium to a medium-wide. When I last changed the gullet there was no crack. The crack is about 5 inches long down the plastic bit under the pommel? The saddle has not been dropped and horse has not fallen onto it. Can I get this replaced or...

    Clipping in Summer?

    Peoples thoughts? Half face and legs to be left on one but legs off on the other? Two dark bays who get very hot & sweaty - both live out 24/7.

    Scared of traffic

    Not what you wanted to hear but after 3 years I have finally got my mare in most traffic excluding big vans and lorries, tractors etc. I tried everything but the only thing that worked for me was her not seeing any traffic for over a year. Then introducing her by leading her a couple of times...

    Dressage/competition livery Cirencester area

    As far as I'm aware personally, hunters equestrian doesn't offer livery and is a private yard and competition venue. However I may well be wrong?

    What is most important to you when looking for a new horse?

    I don't and won't actively search for a height, age, colour or breed. However.. anything hugely white or pure grey will be passed unless I think "wow" I can't deal with yellow horses. 1. Suitability - If I want an eventer it must have presence, movement and braveness to jump. If I want a...

    Hit Air or Point Two?

    Thanks all. Think it will be Hit Air or Helite - Typically only Hit Air has a stockist near me and even then it isn't that close. Oh well. :)

    Hit Air or Point Two?

    Was looking at Helites just an hour ago actually. I think I may go for one of them if you guys think they are just as good?
