    Child safety stirrups - please help...

    No stirrup is fail safe. But bent leg are definitely the best option! My 3yr old ended up upside down and hanging last year as he slipped and got his foot stuck. These were 3.5" stirrups and size 9 (infant boots). Eldest insists on pitting so much foot through the stirrup if she does come...

    Do PC ponies really cost that much?

    Our Sec Gelding is valued about 1.4k. He is 8, backed at 6 but hasn't done much. In the right hands and with a good rider and more schooling he would make a good PC pony in the right hands. He has quite the jump on him and if I had a fearless jockey, and the funds to finance pc or BS then he...

    Advice required re taking Warfarin and riding/ horses.

    Nope and apparently I do not even have to tell my insurance company! Though life insurance is unafforable at over £100 a month. I have been told I must take anticoagulants for the rest of my life now. They wont change me to malarial drugs and I am now about to ask them to change me back to...

    Bit guards?

    our sec a has bit rings as sometimes he and daughter disagree on the direction they are going and they keep the bit central. That is the only reason.

    Any houses for sale Aberdeenshire?

    Having looked through the ASPC (Aberdeen Solicitors Property Centre) website for a friend the other day I concur. anything 150k or there abouts with land will need a massive restoration most likely. To put into perspective, we have a 3 bed with a separate 2 story garage, no garden. Not been...

    Saddle and a scar

    Make sure that you push for an ultrasound to confirm that the clot has gone! Mine did not go after the 3 months, and my still mild symptoms were brushed off and then a year of sedentary office work caused the clot to build again causing more damage and been told that they class it as 2...

    Saddle and a scar

    I concur. Have they started you on them?? They really should have within mins of finding it out (well as soon as the pharmacy dished out the heparin!). I was not allowed to walk even 200m after they discovered my clot in the groin. Also cannot believe that they didn't give you the jabs if...

    Considerate and helpful bus driver

    How nice. It sadly does seem rare that these people are encountered. A few years back I went with my friend to a competition and we were are a really nightmare junction, turning right across a dual carridgeway with a big horse in a trailer, not fun. We had been there nearly 10 mins till a big...

    Lateral movements - which seat bone to weight?

    I have to say I am wondering this at the moment, as my daughter has gained confidence so is working more on control using body weight. I was taught that for turning to move weight slightly to the direction you want to go. And our pony responds to this very well. I am stumped when it comes to...

    Best way to keep vicious dog out of field that is attacking the

    I second this, the Social Media approach! We have one here and it can take not even an hour for the whole place to know what storm is going down on it. Also as you mention the colour of coat you found. My friend has a Malamute and that sounds like hair from one of them (is it very soft?)...

    Manual of Horsemanship

    I did find some this morning, definately seems 14th is the newest, though its saying 2011 publish date so only 5 yrs so not so bad. Reading that the format had moved to 3 defined sections I was wondering if the next step would have been to make it into 3 books now it is larger. Going to get it...

    Manual of Horsemanship

    Is the 14th Edition the latest one? Are they even continuing with it? I noticed on the PC bookstore lots of broken out reference books, is that the new plan? Daughter asked for a more in depth book about horses and whilst I have one from 1994 I was looking for a newer one, if any point in...

    Why does everyone seem to have a flash bridle?

    We have started using a flash on my daughters pony. It is not done up to the point he cannot open his mouth. We use it to help stabilise the bit in his mouth as despite being fitted correctly, his teeth being checked, and my daughter having quiet hands he doesn't like it moving. Bitless is...

    Any other ideas on why a backer won't tolerate a roller?

    Not that this will help, but 20 years ago I used to ride an ex eventer who was so sensitive when doing the girth up - it was just behind his legs that was the issue. If the girth nipped him in the slightest he went down to the floor and sat like a dog. He was uber sensitive in all ways...

    Any lawyers on here please?

    you could argue a horse is classed as goods, as it is under the sale of goods act they are. The act covers persons and their goods. "What is the law that governs the sale of a horse? Horses are treated, from a legal point of view, as...

    There is the Occupiers Liability Act...would that not in a way count? "Occupiers' liability is a field of tort law, codified in statute, which concerns the duty of care owed by those who occupy real property, through ownership or lease, to people who visit or trespass. It deals with...

    Buying a pony for a small child. Lots of questions!!

    Good luck to you! We have been through a few ponies now, From our sec A, to a shetland, a Welsh cross and then back to our Sec A again. We found that they were either too cheeky, too lazy or too stubborn. But then I decided that daughter needs to learn to ride the pony issues and all...
