    Reputable Dealers in the South? (and budget??)

    That is a very good point - also the 'hassle' as well, when it could be easier to have this included in the price I pay someone else who does it professionally! I would love to give it a go one day, with more time and money allowing. I have seen the post, and I am undecided regarding it - dodgy...

    I've always wanted to do this!

    And vice versa, please! I wonder if we'll end up fighting over the same horse :oops:

    Ingatestone

    A few places might be open in Chelmsford? I know not super near but I often go there with my friend who works at Ingatestone after her shift finishes.

    Reputable Dealers in the South? (and budget??)

    Chilver Farm look to have some very green horses which I would love to bring on but I am trying to be really strict with myself :cool: :rolleyes: That's interesting! I've heard of Sue at Duckhurst before but I've always shrugged and never looked into them as I know the 'Duckhurst' name has a...

    I think it's the angle but the right hoof looks longer and more upright then left side?

    I wonder if we can petition/ask very very very very very nicely to get Emma back dealing for us ;):cool:

    Reputable Dealers in the South? (and budget??)

    I'm telling myself the same thing. Is 2 too many? What is 'too many connemaras'?

    My goodness!! What a beauty... My heart is melting already :eek: I haven't heard of this site before?!

    Reputable Dealers in the South? (and budget??)

    Interesting... I have a feeling I know which but could you PM me? I wish we could speak more freely!

    Reputable Dealers in the South? (and budget??)

    Interesting! I will give them a call in the future and see - I remember them having a very good rep and their horses flew off the shelves. How funny you also have a Clip Clop one! What a small world - and I agree. Sometimes I think about stopping the career and starting a little horse business...

    Reputable Dealers in the South? (and budget??)

    Around 9-10 years ago - they were all the people to go to! Interesting... thank you! Collating a little list of names to keep an eye on for later this summer when I might be in the market... We'll see how long I can put off actually viewing any o_O my OH reckons it'll be within the month....

    Reputable Dealers in the South? (and budget??)

    *bump* any more? Please feel free to PM me as well if there are any to strictly avoid - I know of a few from back in the day but not up to date obviously! Does anyone know if Equine Agents or Martins Irish horses are still trading? I remember them having pretty good reps!

    Congratulations on Charlie! Could you possibly link me? The only NB Equine I can find is Noah Brooke? ETA - nevermind, found it!! :rolleyes:

    lightweight stable rug with neck?

    I hadn't seen those before! Do you have a link? That could be a lifesaver for me. I've always been intrigued by Snuggy Hoods as well.

    lightweight stable rug with neck?

    Would a fullneck fleece be suitable? I have always had Weatherbeeta for these (and tbh most of my rugs until recently) and really rate them - keep my grey covered a treat when needed.

    Reputable Dealers in the South? (and budget??)

    I'll keep an eye - for the right horse I am willing to travel! Can't see much on her site at the moment though?

    Reputable Dealers in the South? (and budget??)

    Oh my goodness what a sweetie!! How fabulous - congrats!! I think I'm catching the bug :oops: I can't stop looking at adverts!! ETA - why are most of the horses in the ads grey??! :rolleyes:

    Reputable Dealers in the South? (and budget??)

    Thank you everyone! I've had a snoop around and I have to say I'm a bit in love with the 5yo at NT :cool: Somebody stop me!!

    Reputable Dealers in the South? (and budget??)

    I am toying with the idea of getting another and I am very out of touch with the horse market at the mo - I bought my boy nearly 10 years ago now and I am ashamed to say haven't looked at the market or any ads since (I used to love window shopping!). Current boy came from Emma Hinkley at Clip...

    East Sussex Livery

    You might want to consider pushing off into the Kent borders where there are a few more - there are a few yards on that border near Goudhurst/Sissinghurst.

    Crazy itching

    Can I ask what you are feeding? I know horses with sensitivities can sometimes itch like mad on some ingredients - alfalfa mentioned above is a common culprit

    How to make horsey friends in a new city? (London)

    This. Most of the yards in SE are desperately over-grazed, with very limited turnout - which I and my horse do not tolerate. A lot of the yards don't turnout if there's even been a light shower overnight. On top of this, a few of the yards aren't well run - management will cut corners...

    I've never heard of Guy Lodge but I know about a few other names in the area, if you have any in mind?

    How to make horsey friends in a new city? (London)

    I would second the looking further out from Bexley and the likes! I know nearly every livery yard in the SE London / Kent borders and can't say I recommend many at all. Bexley in particular, and even the yards around Eynsford/Farnham area weren't great (in fact, one was terrible) - I would...

    Grazing chenies/Latimer/flaunden

    Might be worth a post in the Tack Room as it gets a wider audience :)
