    Advice please - Showing

    Everything as others have said above black tack is acceptable at all levels so don't worry. Brown is correct but depends how you horse looks in this. And snaffle is def okay for local level novice classes.

    Those of you without a wash box/proper washing facilities?

    I wash mine before and after with a hose pipe and never wash down in hot water. That opens the pores in the skin for mud fever. The ones that live out are just wet brushed where the saddle went and then a good brush before they go out.

    Who doesn't ride in a snaffle?

    All mine (9) are hacked out in loose ring snaffles no matter how strong. However for there other events the bits can vary. Being in a pelham for a reason shouldn't put people off.

    Soya Oil is fed for slow release energy - for weight and condition normal veggi oil is fine and can be fed up to a cup full a day.

    I show a dark brown almost black cob. I always use black tack on him as brown looks silly. We use black for local, county and HOYS - never been marked down!

    Anyone hearing of a huntsman or KH job please

    If your serious about the job then ring the MFHA and get your name on the 'list'. They will then in return send you a list of up and coming vacancies before they are advertised elsewhere. Many hunts only use the MFHA list for advertising.

    The owners are beside themselves and are offering a reward for any information leading to the capture of who ever did this. The mare was very close to foaling but unfortunately her foal was still born due to the attack! If anyone knows anything pm me and I will pass the details on to the owners!
