    Saddle For Andalusian? Any Idea??

    I have a PRE and he wears a Strada Dressage Saddle (formerly Michela Leng) and also a Strada jumping saddle. They are superb, not cheap but worth it. My friend who is a Master Saddler and who also owns Iberians (so fully understands their anatomy and physiollogy) made them both before the...

    If he was yours, what would you do?!

    Dont touch his mane or his tail. I have a purebred and I never touch either. He gets a muddy mane but I wait untill its dry and then crumble it. I keep his body very clean but sometimes just leave his mane muddy. As long as he is fit and healthy, a bit of mud in his mane doesnt bother me.

    Has anyone bought an Andalusian from Spain?

    I think its 6 of 1 and half a dozen of the other really. There are more over here in UK now than there used to be so some prices over here are not over inflated and stupidly high. In some cases tho you will find a dealer over here offering quality PRE for 12 grand (£) when they prob imported...

    Vets and Saddlers in/around salisbury

    Ok. I think Warminster/Frome would be too far away for you for vets then. If youre north of Salisbury then you might be better off with a vets from Winchester or Newbury then.

    Vets and Saddlers in/around salisbury

    Hi there. Which side of Salisbury are you on as this can make quite a difference. Is it a saddlers you want or a saddler to maybe adjust a saddle you already have? My best buddy is a master Saddler who is an expert on side saddles to but she doesnt carry any second hand saddles.

    Katie Price marries her cage fighter in Las Vegas

    Good luck to them both I say. People are just jealous of her. let them and anyone else for that matter enjoy life while they can. If that means marrying once or a hundred times then so be it. I bet there are far worse people in this world than Katie Price. Her kids are happy and well looked...

    Can horses jump safely unshod?

    My horse has been shoeless for over 12 months now. I screamed round a few HT with him last year and also did some showjumping and to be honest, I had more grip. I wouldnt worry about jumping without shoes at all, its putting shoes on horses that makes them slip!

    Ride and drag

    I have done ride and lead with my youngster when he was just 2. I started off with just walking for about 10 mins and once a week then gradually got further and further, introduced trotting and a bit of hill work. He thoroughly enjoyed it and it didnt do him any harm. He's now used to very...

    It could be that these horses were "imported for breeding purposes" because that way you dont have to pay import tax on them. The idiot that imported them should be hauled over the coals for this one! I'd love to know who it is. Anyone got any ideas????

    Trotting on roads

    I've always trotted on roads and never thought it to be an issue. I used to be at a very posh yard where anyone who evented trained their horses on the best surfaces possible but when it came to an actual event, they couldnt cope with the rigours of the ground and were always off with some leg...

    So whos still alive after the finally snow free weekends riding... ?

    I am alive but my horse is very lucky to be alive. He got an ASBO on saturday. Galloped round his field like a nutter, jumped over the fencing, dragged it with him with one foot snapping wooden fence posts as he went, into my friends paddock, galloped round there, churned it up a wee bit...

    Definately a vote for Harvey Smith. That would really stir the scene up. I'm a Tim Stockdale fan too!
