    CDJ masterclass

    Literally just a copy and paste of the notes I made at the CDJ masterclass yesterday - it was fantastic. Really enjoyed seeing training and work in progress rather than the show ready polished end result. Adored the ‘very ordinary’ in Charlotte’s own words mare that they brought out - she was a...

    Pole exercises to develop the canter

    Anyone got any lovely exercises up their sleeve they’d share with me? My little Connie arrived from Ireland in Jan, and is coming on leaps and bounds - she’s super trainable, mega chilled about life and just an all round good egg. I’m thrilled with her. Walk and trot are really coming along...

    Pony shopping update, saddle musings and all the fancy clothes.

    Thanks for all the help and advice on pony shopping in Ireland and vetting etc. She flew through and arrived at the ungodly hour of 3:30am Wednesday. Wandered into the stable and tucked into hay like she’d been there her entire life, and I was back in bed by 4:10. Bramhams of Buckingham were...

    Dressage Pony report

    More of a lurker than a poster, but I got some great advice when she was lame so thought I'd pop back to post an update. Long story short, I bought a 4yo. She did a tendon in the front leg as a 5yo. Then was diagnosed with chronic PSD in both hinds that had been going on on a sub clinical...

    Dressage: Prelim Debut

    So, the day finally dawned - after spending pretty much the entire of last summer on box rest and then all winter doing rehab work for a tendon injury and kissing spines we finally got out to do a prelim on my little 6YO. C was practically written off by Leahurst last year - so it was amazing...

    Ideas please- rental agents?

    We are tentatively looking for a small yard, with house attached - in the Cheshire/Manchester area for rental. Everything listed currently seems to be large yard/commercial opportunities which don't fit the bill. I'm looking for: * 3 bed house * 3/4 stables * 4/5 acres - enough turn out...

    A how much query.

    Friend is looking for a horse, has found one advertised and thinks it might be 'the one' - the seller seems straightforward enough, and has indicated they'd be open to an offer on the horse. Friend is keen to make an offer, has a ball park but as this would be her first event type she's bought...

    Successfully challenging insurance exclusions

    Has anyone ever done this and been successful? Long story short- I'm in the midst of a month long battle with my insurers to get an exclusion removed and feel like all I'm getting is contradictory advice. Wondering if its worth perusing further with them or just letting it go. Little mare...

    feeding advice pleaae

    Injured pony is coming back into work and looks a little light due to a growth spurt (bum high!!) and the grass dropping off. She's always lacked topline and was poor when we bought her last year. The 10months out of work and mainly in her box haven't helped. She's 1515hh, 5, riding pony...

    Magnesium Based Calmer - Recomendations

    Sharp youngster has been on a low grade mag oxide calmer from Metabolic Horse for about 8 weeks now - it was sent by accident and we decided to give it a whirl rather than bin it.

    I'm looking for some words of wisdom and advice if anyone could offer any please. I bought C last october, as a pretty much unknown, from a performance pony sale. She's nicely bred, pretty, and just seemed green but seemed fairly willing. She was an impulse purchase. I didn't do much with...

    Following on from my saddle woes thread - I'm on the hunt for a 16.5inch saddle. I've found a couple of wide ones, but we need medium. I've tried the usual places; saddles direct, ebay, BD - but nothing so far. Where else could I look?

    Saddle Woes - Advice Needed!

    had the saddle fitter out today - who confirmed what we suspect- - new pony's saddle doesn't fit at all, and is probably a contributing factor to her lameness. Saddle fitter thinks she will be nigh on impossible to fit a saddle for - so we are in it for the long haul with trial and error we...
