    livery yards allowing owners on during lockdown

    My yard was locked down last time, as restrictions were eased we were given slots. This time it is operating as normal and I am so grateful!

    England COVID restrictions update

    Also this important line. The ‘when’ means we can visit just have to socially distance. When visiting a livery yard or stables you should avoid unnecessary social contact and gathering with people who you do not live with

    England COVID restrictions update

    So the updated guidance says the outdoors exercise is permitted and this includes horse riding. You can travel for exercise if you need to make a short journey to do so. You can leave your home to care or exercise an an animal or horse where they are not kept at home. Therefore from that I take...

    Thoughts on riding being allowed with November lockdown

    The BHS don’t tell us not to ride every winter when hospitals are overflowing and on blackwatch 🤷🏼‍♀️

    Gut supplements

    When my horse colicked my vet asked what supplements he was on. As he was in brewers yeast the vet said that was great and didn’t need the ‘after colic supplement’ they were going to prescribe

    "Discontinued" second hand stuff...what the hell..?!

    I’ve got a teal cc pad which is apparently really popular and people pay silly money for. Shame I won’t be selling it as it’s my favourite colour on my lad

    I can’t upload the file, however on looking at his Instagram again, it looks like he was wearing sprengers at the event

    Yes, looking at his Instagram pics he is mainly using traditional stirrups and in some pictures Sprenger looking ones.

    I’m off to decathlon at the weekend, I’ve seen their stuff recommended so many times

    Why do so many people think its fine to have fat horses?

    Same. As a fellow ID owner I feel your pain. Fat lad has been clipped and will be under rugged. I’ve never had him in more than a 200g and that was only during the beast of east.

    Why do so many people think its fine to have fat horses?

    My ID is a nightmare, given the chance he will eat and eat. He can get fat off air

    How to not become 'that' riding school rider?

    As an ex riding school learner my biggest bit of advice would be to learn to ride off the outside rein. I have so many issues now due to not being taught this

    Derby house rug fit?

    I bought one of their turnouts for my ID and it was much too tight across the chest and shoulders, sounds perfect for yours.

    It’s that time of year...clippers

    I’ve got masterclip roamers. Clipped for the first time with them and found it really easy, no problems going through my IDs yak coat

    Impressive protection from a PAS 015:2011 helmet

    It’s a shame that it is seen as ‘cool’ to have KEP, Samshield etc hats at the moment. There’s a reason brands like Charles Owen have been around forever.

    Wet weather riding gear...

    I moved from a yard with an indoor school to a yard without last autumn and I must admit I really didn’t ride enough due to the wet weather. Going to buy some decent waterproof gear so I have no excuse this winter. I keep seeing those decathlon jods recommend!

    Difference between English and American English riding

    True 😂 I do watch those videos thinking if that horse stops they are going to go flying

    Difference between English and American English riding

    Ahh glad this has been bumped. I follow a few US instagram accounts and the Hunter jumpers have puzzled me. The riders fold completely forwards over the smallest of jumps and then stay perched between the jumps. Seems the complete opposite to here where we are told to stay off the horses neck...

    Waterproof jackets / coats - winter!

    I’ve got a toggi Alston, really impressed with it. However it’s fairly lightweight, definitely need layers when it’s cold. For proper winter I’ve got an ariat shire coat. It’s the best coat I’ve ever had

    Chestnut horse - yellow or red matchy?

    I toyed with the idea of getting the le Mieux citron for my chestnut, in avatar, however we stick to blues. Means I save money on not buying random colours 😂

    Feed reccomendations please - overweight native

    He’s on brewers yeast as I believe it helps his scurfy chestnut coat and it’s good for his gut. He is also on magnesium, this is a trial as he went a bit crazy, his behaviour is much better, whether that is due to the magnesium or not I dont know. He is also on electrolytes as he is a sweaty beast

    Feed reccomendations please - overweight native

    My ID gets a tiny handful of chaff to carry his supplements. If he wasn’t on any supplements he wouldn’t get anything
