    Planning permission question- building stables on agricultural land

    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! πŸ€”

    Christ lammfelle sheepskin bareback pads

    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

    Christ lammfelle sheepskin bareback pads

    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...

    Thoroughbred that did the Splits (Back Legs)

    I found hoof boots slippery on smooth road surfaces, bare foot better, but shod with road nails best for grip. Sending good wishes for your horse, sounds a nasty injury

    How to remember SJ courses?

    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?

    Hunter trial tomorrow.. Hard ground 😩

    Thanks Lec 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.
