    Advice please before I travel for 2 hours!

    Agree with LHS it doesnt ring true at all to me. But if you did take him on then hacking is excellent to build - you can school whilst out on a hack and i usually get better results than in the school! Ask him to work in an outline (working forward in an outline not pulled in) try some leg...

    wardrobe prep

    Hi if your going for the whole spectrum of shows i would go for white/cream jods/ long leather boots / shirt with stock and pin. Show jacket and hat. I would try and match the hat with the jacket ie blue and blue or black and black. Also gloves & hairnet.

    Insurance when travelling 16.3 horse in HB506

    I dont know 100% but trailers give recommended heights not compulsory limits - im sure ther arent any laws or stipulations stating you cant carry a horse 1 inch higher on the withers. My 16'1 horse is bigger overall other than withers than my 16'3 so it would be open to so much controversy if...

    Does your mare play?

    My gelding plays for hours. If a horse even dares to go up to my mare though she will charge and attack it - she is a typical stroppy chestnut mare. If i ever saw her even run up the field in excitement i would be amazed - she is the laziest moody mare i have ever met. Even if i walk past a...

    Why is dressage such a precious sport?

    I suppose that with dressage its all about the 'show' so the turnout of the rider and horse affects the overall asthetic view of the dessage test. Whereas when you watch showjumping its more about action so people care a ittle less about the turnout? Just a guess.

    Jeep Cherokee? Towing?

    Mine is an auto diesel and i agree - very thirsty but i cant compare to others as ive never had another 4x4 - my sister has the terrano and she hates it with a passion but thats because alots gone wrong with it lately. But i will say the jep is quite luxurious with alot of jazzy extras which i like.
