Has anyone built stables on land classed as for agricultural use? I'm looking for guidance stating the rules regarding the change of use and when the planners do or don't allow change of use for equestrian purposes.
It's quite hard to find out what the rules are! 🤔
It's Sheepskin with 15mm shim inserts, quite thick, but doesn't slip because it has pockets that fit the pad, and slots that the girth straps pass through. There's pictures on the horse dreams website if you want to have a look
I've got the iberica model, it's lovely, very secure doesn't slip.
I have the shimmed saddle pad which goes under it.
I have stirrups attached for hacking but rarely use them. They are safety stirrups in case I ever got dragged (they attach to rings so couldn't slide off)
Absolutely love mine...
Can anyone tell me how to pronounce the name Loughehoe? As in the stallion Loughehoe Guy.
Is is Luff - e - how?
Or Google translate says it Law- ho rhymes with How - ho
It's in my new Irish filly's name, which is which is why I'm asking!
In a test when you have a movement on the marker, which bit of you or the horse needs to be on the marker?
E.g, trot at C, is it the horse's head, riders body or ? On the marker when the transition happens?
I'm really struggling with remembering SJ courses, especially nowadays when you go straight in to the jump off after the first round so it's 14/15 fences to remember
(yes I'm old!!)
Any tips or methods people use?
Yes, I expected the ground to be firm; had it been smooth ie. not poached or rutted, and there was good grass cover, with the take off and landings sanded, then I'd have gone and taken it steady.
