You haven't ridden for 3 weeks.
You have a large (too big for you) very spooky horse.
Its blowing a hoolie, 30mph winds. Gusting stronger.
Its the first day you can ride.
A. Say leave it another day, its too windy and he'll be an idiot.
B. Ride, but in the confines of a outdoor...
Has anyone heard if the TRT live at Bury Farm is going ahead in October?
The website says it is, but wondering if unlikely due to numbers involved.
Have flights and accommodation booked, so would like to get them sorted asap if I need to cancel.
Appealing to your collective knowledge please.
Looking for kibbled feed. No raw, no tins please.
Can only be meat wise lamb, rabbit, venison or fish.
Cannot have peas, carrots, oatmeal or tomato ( amazing how many have these!)
Tia, I know you guys will be able to help.
When you come back from a hack, and see your new pony is no longer in his electric fenced pen, and is in with the orca pod!! :eek::eek:
No harm done, extracted and re installed into the pen.
Until just before coming in time, when he's out again.
Orca are most unimpressed as he...
Went onto the BD website and all my horses points seem to have disappeared??
He hasn't competed for a good few years, but when I went on earlier this year they were still showing (82 points).
Horse has been in a Myler comfort snaffle loose ring for probably 2 years now, and never had a problem.
All of a sudden, he's getting his tongue over the bit when schooling. He wears a Micklem bridle, again for 3+ years. The nose band is done up loosely. I have adjusted the cheek pieces and...
Does anyone have any experience with sudden onset ataxia in hind limbs?
Old horse (30) presented 'off back legs' 10 days ago. Vet came, could see no obvious cause, but agreed unstable behind.
Discussed possible treatments, and decided on NSAIDS for time being. Not keen on steroids at this...
Looking for people who have shredded carpet as a surface.
Do you have only this, or a mixture with sand?
I have an area that is being surfaced and am trying to decide whether to go with all shredded carpet, sand with carpet on top or sand with rubber.
Mostly will be schooling, doing...
That I'm happy to ride my 'special' horse out on hacks, even though he can spook and spin, nap and generally be an ar*e, but put me in a school with him and I turn into a jellylegged woose.
Its getting a bit beyond a joke now. He needs to get on with life and be a horse, but I just become...
Anyone got one, are they any good?
I don't want a 5 point, and I have a full elastic Mark Todd, but the elastic has gone a bit 'soggy' for want of a better description. Saw one of these on a horse last week and liked the look of it, with the smaller elastic insert.
Most upset. Have use the same EDT for about 7 years, never had a problem.
Last time he came, had a new pony which noticed had been quidding. mentioned it too him, and when he looked, he said he had a tooth at odd angle but didn't see a problem. Rasped and said he was fine. Also mentioned that...
Well actually not loading as such, as he's perfectly happy to go in, I just can't get him to stay in happily.
Background briefly, was an ok traveller, but last May threw a hissy fit after being left for 15 mins on the box, resulting in him over the breastbar and luckily not badly hurt, but...
Not sure if this is the right place, but here goes.
7yr old homebred, 3/4tb, 16.2 ish.
Always been super stressy, about everything. As long as all his friends are with him he's fine. Change anything at all, and he stresses out. Can't be hacked alone, needs a chum and even then, everything...
All you have to do is change his bedding!
Stresshead horse changed from straw (which he's been on all his life) to shredded cardboard last night. His world has ended apparently. Couldn't lie down all night (usually in bed 50% of the time), had to pee on the edge of it and stand off it on the...
