    Looking for livery in Altrincham/Bowdon area

    I'm looking for livery for a 16.1 gelding in or around Bowdon, Cheshire. I'd ideally like grass livery but DIY/part considered. Don't really need facilities but AYTO and decent hacking essential. Any recommendations?

    How much should I pay for this horse advice needed

    I think if you saw a horse advertised for £4k and you went to view it having no intention of paying more than £3k you would most likely be wasting their time and yours. However if you were to call them and say, 'My absolute maximum budget is £3k, I don't want to waste your time but that is all...

    How much should I pay for this horse advice needed

    it's very difficult to price a horse without actually seeing it or sitting on it. She may well be worth £6.5k to someone - maybe not to you, I don't know. What I will say though is if I was selling the price would be agreed before you took the horse on trial (I personally would not allow this...

    Fly Free? Does it really work!?

    After a couple of weeks my horse had no more bites on him. The flies still hang about but don't seem to bite so worked for my horse.

    Kate & Wills attending Rodeo...

    And how would you know if i've never seen it?! No one is dictating what they can and cannot do just whether it's necessary for our Royals to be seen as endorsing it. So just because a horse has a sheen on its coat and only is subjected to a few minutes of abuse now and again it's ok?

    Kate & Wills attending Rodeo... but the other part of the family are. Not having a go at Kate just don't think it's necessary to be endorsing this 'sport'.

    people wont pay for my horse

    How they get the money to you should be their concern not yours. Just tell them the horse doesn't leave the yard either in your transport or theirs until the money is either in your hand or in your bank account. And give them a timescale to complete the transaction!

    I think I want my horse back

    How long was your agreement for? Did you discuss how long you were thinking of loaning for? Don't put off tackling this. It might be awkward but you'll be relieved once it's all sorted. It's probably on your mind all the time at the moment!

    I think I want my horse back

    Absolutely. I'm sick of hearing how people say they've 'put all the hard work in and now owner wants it back' - so buy it - 'can't afford it'. Ok, but you were happy to have a free horse for however long and now want to moan about it. Rant over. See if she wants to buy, if not, agree a...

    If you could keep your horse at home, would you?

    To be honest I think it depends on individual circumstances. I've done both at home and livery and can't wait to get back to livery! I think if you have a family who are all horsey and can help out if you need to go away for the weekend etc then it can work out, otherwise it's all on you and...

    Best time to advertise a hunter?

    When do people start looking for a new hunter? I realise most aren't wanting to buy now but when would I be best to advertise, July/August or once the season begins/Autumn hunting time? He does everything but most of all loves hunting hence wanting to find him the right home!

    Who keeps a mini shetland with big horses?

    I have one as a companion to a 17hh! He is a gentle giant though. Just be careful with introductions, maybe graze in adjoining paddocks till used to each other to avoid injuries when hurtling around!

When I actually got out to the yard to see him he had...
