    a bit confused

    Me again (I’m doing a lot of thinking lately :) One of my horses is ridden in a bubble bit (2 ring) on the bottom ring (it has the centre revolver mouthpiece) a grackle and a martingale. He can be strong out hacking and can pull a fair bit especially in canter, I’ve tried him in just a normal...

    Your thoughts are appreciated

    Hi All Just wanted to pick your brains I have decided to re-advertise my cob gelding for Part Loan, he’s a 15.1hh 9yr old coloured cob gelding, who is by no means a kick along (once he gets to know his rider) but isn’t unsafe in the slightest. I’m ideally looking for a competent confident...

    Oh Honestly

    I was informed i was cruel the other day because 1 of my cobs is ridden in a 2 ring gag (on the bottom ring) a grackle noseband and a martingale! I could ride him in just a normal cavesson noseband, no martingale and a snaffle.... IF i wanted to constantly have to pull on his mouth and hold...

    New Farrier

    My horses were shod at the weekend by my new farrier (first time he'd done them) and I can honestly say (on first impressions) he's fantastic. he was brilliant with both of my horses - my gelding is fine to shoe but my mare is a little nervous due to a previous issue but he was so quiet and...
