    Personalised embroidery rugs and kit

    I'm lucky enough to have been offered some sponsorship by my company for some competition rugs and other kit. I would love to have some recommendations for which rug/embroidery company people use? I'm reluctant to use one who makes own brand rugs unless recommended as I would be wary of fit and...

    Treating mud fever

    Completely agree with the udder cream. It stays on well and is safe for brood mare. I used it three years running on my brood mare who previously had such bad mud fever that she had ended up on steroids. It was the only thing that fixed and prevented it.

    "Katie Price can't ride" claims Jodie Marsh

    How interesting to read the views on here. I have the privelege (in my view) of training regularly with Andrew and as such have watched Kate progress with her horses.

    Best place to advertise for loan

    I have just found a fabulous event horse whilst mine is off injured. I highly recommend horse quest and horse mart. I had most replies there. And I imagine that like me as the "loaner" you will have to root through the ones that arent appropriate. There are some fantastic loan homes out there.
