I have a 6yo gelding by Eurocommerce Singapore, he is a sweetheart. He can be a bit tricky sometimes (more to do with a teenage phase rather than breeding I think) but generally he's very well behaved under saddle and has a lovely pop on him. On the ground he is an angel.
As others have said FAL zip on, what size are you looking for?
I bought this rug at Burghley, I was super impressed with it. It is a shame mine grew out of it http://www.hzone.co.uk/hzone-detachable-neck-medium-stable-rug-33-p.asp
I hack out loads with my dad on his bike, there's lots of hills where I am and my horse is fit so trotting up hills is about the same speed as my dad on the bike (the hills do drag!) it is just going down hill the bike has to go a lot slower than usual!
I find it really useful as our lanes are...
I love the le mieux boots, they fit my horse perfectly and don't slip or rub. If it's your first time XC do you really need proper XC boots? If you're not going to be doing it regularly a set of brushing boots or similar boots should be suffice.
My friend has complied a questionnaire as part of market research for a rug design business. If anyone had a spare few minutes to fill the questionnaire out that would be very much appreciated. If anybody has any further comments please post on here or PM me and I will pass these...
Unfortunately by fabulous standie mare was PTS last summer but she was a fantastic horse, would dressage and jump but he main thing was hunting, she was unbelievably fun to hunt and not short of pace, she could keep up with Denman and would jump hedges brilliantly.
I always warm up and cool down like this but still need to crack canter, he struggles to stretch down and I have a tendency to ride on a loose rein rather than a long rein, oops!
Stretching in trot on a circle is in Walk and trot B I think?
The art of being a good instructor is being able to improve, even if only a tiny bit a variety of different horses, sounds like this instructor has a set way of doing things and adaptability is not their strong point.
Stick with the instructor you know and get on with :) The hardest thing is...
Led horse to the left, roughly at my knee.
Always on a bridle. I have a rope which is halfway between a lead rope and a lunge line. I wouldn't trust using just a short leadrope! Always clipped onto the bit the far side, threaded over the poll and through the bit on my side.
Mine has been in a 100g combo the last couple of nights, its a really handy rug for when it gets a bit chilly. He's got an assortment of no fills with standard necks and combos for this time of year, none have leaked and that's with going in the washing machine a lot.
