    Anyone ordered from Derby House recently?

    I ordered a pair of Kilpurnie boots about 4 months ago, got them last week. Very good price, but bit of a wait.

    Ah, that's ok then. Def tidy up the frogs to help get rid of infection, have you tried Red Horse hoof spray, can't think of name but great for infection. A wee bt off the bars just to Level them, and lose the flare, it looks like it's causing some WLD? What's happened to the one that has the...

    WWYD - Lame!

    I have an old girl, started going pottery last autumn, various diagnoses were back, stifle, abscess etc none of which fitted, so I sort of resigned my self to retiring her. To make her more comfortable I started giving her a desert spoon of turmeric in her evening feed, about Christmas. Whether...

    Santa Cruz Jumping Saddle

    Just came across your post as I was googling SC saddles, thinking of selling my daughter's out grown 17". She did PC, SJ etc for several years and loved the saddle as did the pony.

    Flexee-Opinions anyone on Heather Moffat range?

    Parker79, I wasn't implying that you had a problem with HM, but it's interesting that so many people have come on here condemning the Flexee when evidently they haven't had the opportunity to try it, and that's what you were particularly asking about. I'm possibly lucky in that I've had no...

    Flexee-Opinions anyone on Heather Moffat range?

    Last I heard the Flexee won't be in general production for a couple more months, but I have heard no bad reports from anyone who has had a protopype. I have 2 on order, so will update when I have had a chance to try them. I'm disappointed with the attitude of some of the posters on this...

    That pretty much speaks for itself, doesn't it? I haven't watched the wonderful test - I don't believe the end justifies the means, and how anyone can say that the horse is "happier" being ridden like this - happier than what?

    Watch the t6hrilling end of the Freestyle to Music at Hagen

    What a shame Totilas' test was marred by the way he was ridden in the warmup.

    Treeless Saddles

    We've had a Dream Team saddle for a couple of years, used on several horses by different riders, haven't had a problem with pressure points. Looking to get a HM Flexee when they come out, flexible tree, highly recommended.

    Grand National 2012- Carnage! What did everyone think?

    Would that there were more owners like the Dutchess of Westminster who refused to run Arkle in the National, and kept him for many years in retirement. THis is the first year I haven't watched it, just cant take it any more, although I love watching the horses. Glad I didn't.

    "Conventional" Looking Treeless Saddles?

    That's not so good - but neither of us is lightweight, and saddle gets used 3 or 4 times a day. Sorry your friends had a bad experience, but we love ours!

    "Conventional" Looking Treeless Saddles?

    Agree with HM - excellent - but don't agree your opinion on Dream Team - we have had one for a couple of years, all our horses go well in it and it is very comfortable, my daughter jumps up to 1m in it. Maybe not the most conventional to look at, though.

    magnetic boots -good investment/waste of money?

    I wouldn't be without them I have had a pair of Bioflow boots for over 10 years, they have helped I'm sure a dozen different horses through lamenesses, injuries, abscesses. Don't know how they do what they do, but they have worked for me.
