    So nagging with your legs...

    Is very much acceptable in Olympic dressage. Some awful riding seen today, but hey because they are Olympians it's acceptable... Sigh.

    Sorry if this has been posted before! http://on.aol.co.uk/video/hilarious-horse-headbutt-video-goes-viral-518235258?ncid=webmail2 A case of someone not paying attention to his surroundings I think. It wasn't headbutting either - that's a biter! And to be honest I have chucked water at a...

    Well done QueenBee and Ben!

    As I was at the Royal Cornwall today I decided to try and find the two of them, in a sea of coloureds! Both looked very smart and took part in the class without any real hiccups. Ben was quite fresh in a jiggy way but didn't disgrace himself and QB coped really well with him. Well done...

    South Today's ragwort report

    Well done South Today for highlighting Hampshire's ragwort problem. Shame they had people supporting the wildlife ragwort loving issues too... I do think they needed more emphasis on the poisoning problems though.

    Not sure how many people on here followed her story elsewhere but Grace sadly had to be pts yesterday after a bout of bad colic :( I guess it's no surprise that colic got her in the end but she had come so far and seemed out of the woods for good. RIP Grace x Not sure if this link will work...

    How do you get over giving up horse owning?

    I have decided to let my gorgeous mare go off to be a broodie in the New Forest. I'm losing my livery as the owner is emigrating and financially I could really do with a break so have sadly decided to let her go. She's 15 and I've had her since she was 6 months old and although I'm trying to let...

    Sick barstewards...

    Just seen on the 10 minute news that some sick feckers threw a load of apples spiked with nails and pins into horse fields. Didn't get all the details as I was listening to something on my laptop and just caught the end of it. I'd like to meet whoever did that and give them a piece of my mind.

    Dear god...what's up with people!

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/surrey/8622670.stm Can you imagine cantering into that? It doesn't bear thinking about! And it's not just us riders, cyclists and walkers were in danger too. I bet the gits that did it were hiding nearby and watching to see if anyone got caught by it...

    Can any Cornish peeps recommend a good riding stables near/on Bodmin

    moor please? Off to Cornwall at the end of the month for a week (Port Issac) and determined to get a ride in somewhere whilst there. I own a 16:2 TB mare so I like quality forward going horses and would prefer a ride that doesn't have a huge amount of roadwork (too much of that at home!)...

    Are horses too trusting??

    http://news.sky.com/skynews/picture_gallery/picture_gallery/0,,30200-1301121-8,00.html I love the comment that none of the owners would harm their horses..... I bet a few horses were singed or burnt when their drunken (but caring!!) owners rode them through the fires

    Anyone tried the Nupafeed calmer?

    If so what kind of results did you have? I have a 12 yo TB mare who gets incredibly over excited when warming up for showjumping and I really need something to help reduce this. She is generally an airhead anyway and it would be nice to have a horse that doesn't freak out so much when ridden...

    As it says really Does anyone remember this Naval riding stables (part of Culdrose)? It folded in 1970 - 71 when I was in Hong Kong with my family and I was heartbroken at the time. My dad showed me the list of the horses and ponies for sale - quite cruel of him really! Just wondered if...
