    What bit do you use for starting youngsters?

    A fulmer with a lozenge as many don't like the nutcracker action of a conventionally jointed bit in my experience, then a NS team up which has a lozenge and is loose ring.

    How much does a windsucker devalue a young horse?

    In my experience it hugely affects their value and only once for that reason did I buy one. That was a proven JA pony for my son and so the category of experienced competitor referred to by most others on this thread. I had no trouble selling her either. For amateur's horses or any you might...

    Showing peeps ...Pigeon toed

    It's a heartbreaking thing if you show seriously as you can't do anything to change it. We had one called in first in a hoys qualifying class and moved down because of it which was entirely fair but hard to experience.

    Arena Surface - Do Rubber & Carpet Mix?

    Our arena surface gets a lot of use and now needs a bit of work done before the winter. It was originally sand and pvc, and then we added rubber chunks. We now need more surface as it is becoming thin in parts and I'd like it to be a bit more stable. Has anyone tried adding carpet fibre...
