    How flexible is your horse?

    I don't have a video but my 4 yr old can scratch the top of his own dock with 4 feet on the ground :o

    Irish Setters

    Thanks for all the replies :) Cinnamontoast: yes I've gone through the UK & Ireland Irish setters website for registered breeders and contacted 3 that are expecting litters. I've also done my research with the breed and see the introduction of a new test so I've had that as an extra to ask...

    Millie-Super-Mare's smashing return to the competition arena!

    Haha bless you. Her canter is far better than Shadows, and thats what will hold him back. His changes are pretty good and trainer has suggested minimal time spent doing Mediums and push on to AM. Its the lack of transport that has held us up! Still trainer os out on sunday to kick me into action...

    Millie-Super-Mare's smashing return to the competition arena!

    Millie is looking great and what a fantastic result under Lady I...well done!! I don't come on here much any more so nice to see updates from the old names, especially Millie as she gives me hope that Shadow can still do more :)

    Anyone dressage a Sec D ? To what level ?

    Mine has competed up to Medium and been relatively successful, I'm hoping to get him back out soon to have a bash at an Advanced Medium or two. Both trainer & I feel he's likely to find it easier than Medium as his changes are better than his counter canter! He's not a long backed D though, he...

    moving from Full livery to DIY...

    I've always put deposits on stables as moving never fits in easily with the rest of life :) Most have happily accepted a reduced amount to secure the stable and then taken that off of the first months bill. I can't comment on the time vs money as I've only ever been DIY but there are many...

    Can any horse get to medium?

    Of course it's possible!! I have a welsh cob, he's my first horse and my first attempt at doing dressage. We stepped out last year and tried our first Mediums. He has a poor walk and a difficult canter but if I really put my mind to really riding, then we're capable of 65% plus at Medium :) The...

    Getting to Badminton by some roads may be extra tricky this year

    Well bloody good luck to anyone trying to get to either event! On my way back from the yard, Japfest traffic was already backed up to Allington Farm shop on the A420, so probably a good 5/6 miles!

    Bridleways in Buckinghamshire near Burnham Beeches

    I'm in a totally different area of the world but having just moved to a newish area myself I've found www.bridlewaymap.com is an ace site :D for researching hacking...the downside is if there is nothing you'll be very sad after looking! Also it doesn't show Byways but its a good place to start :D

    Having never heard of it, I did a quick maps check and I think it will be too far, but thank you for bumping the thread :)

    Thank you Fankino04, I can vouch for AP Equestrian having been there before...its a lovely yard but its no where near Chippenham, despite what the address says :)

    Livery close to Chippenham - SN15

    Hi guys, I moved to Wiltshire last month and found a sweet enough little yard, but being brutally honest its not the right yard, so the search has begun again :( I'm after somewhere with a decent school, flood lights are a must (indoor is a bonus!) I can work with a 20X40 but bigger would...

    BHS on One Show

    Neither came across very well I thought, but I can understand why the farmer was so upset! However it seems there was lack of understanding from both parties, its a shame as this is clearly a topic dear to lots of peoples hearts, I would have thought a bit of communication would go a long way...

    Livery near Chippenham

    Sorry Lazysunday, I forgot to add that bit!! I'm after DIY really, but might be interested in part livery as I work shifts. Thank you Soup Dragon, I did check out the message boards at Wadswick but there was only one yard advertising and that was full livery only. A little out of my price range...

    Good morning one and all, its not strictly a competition thread but I'm a competition rider and would like to canvas the opinions of people that post in here and maybe not in other areas of the forum!! I'm looking to relocate soon (no set timescale) I'm going to be moving in with my partner...

    unaffiliated dressage and affiliated..........

    I only did two unaffiliated dressage tests before I affiliated but that was more because I moved yards and if I wanted a lift it meant going affiliated...best thing I did, just be brave and go for it :D

    A Melting Medium Moment

    I think it might be worth sacrificing one of my normal school sessions for a "circuits" session, since he knows all the Medium movements we don't need to spend every session drilling the same things. It won't be in the field, our YO won't let us plus our ground is like concrete now :( No...

    A Melting Medium Moment

    Always happy to take honest opinions :) he already on 12 hours soaked hay and poor grass so there little more I can do to restrict the intake :( he is worked 6 days a week with a mixture of work, in a perfect world I'd like to work him twice a day but my shifts just don't allow for it :rolleyes...

    A Melting Medium Moment

    Its not really a brilliant transition :rolleyes: (left walk to canter is the weakest) he has always had a tendency to climb up into the canter, he doesn't really step through from behind into canter. I had found when I was practising the piri into canter I was getting this a bit more so its my...

    A Melting Medium Moment

    Ahh thank you, I'll tell him he's got a fan :) I knew coming back after the extended canter I might loose him but I thought I'd go for it anyway I actually quite like it as a test. Yes it was hard given the heat and the fact it was our first one, certainly wouldn't have been my first choice...

    A Melting Medium Moment

    Yes it was a bit :eek: tbh my shirt is probably the only top where I'm busting out, so unless the judges were looking for a flasher in the class the jacket was probably a good idea!
