A quick question for all those that are on board bright and early.. what do you do when it comes to feeding your horse?
Does your horse have a hay net over night, which lasts until morning?
Do you delay riding and feed some forage in the morning before getting on?
I’m thinking my only option to keep mine going this Winter is to box up, park up and hack in a quieter area.
Our road is getting increasingly busier and with a fairly nervous Section D, I’m wondering whether not to even risk hacking down our roads and boxing up to go somewhere different...
Who does it and what are the pros and cons? What does your typical day look like and what industry are you in?
Iâ€™m currently in a high pressured job as a manager in a mixed vet practice but am thinking of a change to include more flexibility due to various reasons.
Would love to hear...
After some advise..
I currently just have the one Section D pony. Heâ€™s kept at home with me, we live on a large herd dairy farm. Iâ€™m thinking of getting another horse, as although he is very settled on his own I think it would be nice for him to have some company.
How much time...
I bought my Disco4 roughly six months ago with 111k on the clock - pulls like a train! Absolutely love it, gives you that confidence when towing and thereâ€™s nothing like owning your own!! Paid 12.5k for mine. Touch head/wood - no problems as of yet...
I guess the argument is, horses do tend to see and experience a lot more on a hack! I find mine is more spooky at competitions because he doesnâ€™t see such things on a hack?! Or just because heâ€™s a â€˜typicalâ€™ Section D who uses any excuse to get out of work :D
As title really..
We live on a 600acre dairy farm with plenty of accessible fields (mainly flat and â€œhorsey friendlyâ€, although OH may not agree:p)
The drive directs onto a very busy B road therefore hacking on a road isnâ€™t really an option unless I box up and move 2/3miles off the busy...
I work in the veterinary industry with no prior experience of veterinary/uni degree - I absolutely love it and good pay too. Itâ€™s about finding your feet and working damn hard to get recognised. You can then do what you want.
How do you do it?
My Section D is great hacking out with cars/cyclists/joggers etc, is spooky when not ridden for a while but thatâ€™s to be expected.
He just hates lorries, and tractors especially with implements behind them!
We live on a large herd dairy farm so he is use to all the noises...
I'm doing a little local show tomorrow. I've decided to do some of the jumping classes, but I was wondering what equitation was, and if eligible to do it?
any help would be greatly appreciated

Again, Thankyou so much! (looking at admin, business courses as we speak:D)
I fully understand what everyone is saying now, and I appreciate everyones opinions so much.
SO1- I think that the part time course would be a good idea for me now, rather than doing a full time course. That way...
:)Thankyou for your replies.
