    Why is it

    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...

    How to freak out a stresshead horse!

    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...
