    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!

    Transporting in trailer, insurance & legalities

    If someone is transporting a horse in a trailer that hasn't got the bit on their license that legally allows them to would the horse insurance be invalid if they were in an accident and the horse injured? I realise the car insurance would be invalid for the car & trailer but what about the...

    Should hatless riders appear in H&H?

    Just got round to reading H&H this week and see on page 22 a rider with no hat on. I don't agree with anyone not wearing a hat whether competing or 'just' schooling so why should a rider be featured not wearing a hat? At the side it states in very small writing 'H&H recommends the wearing of...

    Cut leg 4 weeks ago still a bump - worry??

    My horse came in with a cut foreleg (cannon bone) 4 weeks ago. Was swollen but didn't look bad - got vet out and antibiotics/bute. Horse wasn't lame. Brushing boots would have prevented it - annoying!! It seems to be taking a long time to heal and scab, its sort of jelly like in the...

    Renting field with ragwort

    If a field is taken on at the end of May (viewed in April) and then ragwort springs up now - should the landlord have any responsibility for that or can they just rent out a field at the end of May knowing horses are to be grazing on it and expect the tenant to deal with it? It's obviously been...

    Loaning out a hunter - sensible or not!?

    I have a horse that has hunted a few times before, but it's not something I have done or see myself doing this year. Rather than him winter out in a field I was thinking of loaning him to a hunting home, maybe just for the hunt season or longer. Would that be sensible? I know he would rather...

    When horse stands on foot - broken or just bruised??

    My horse spooked and jumped forward whilst in the stable and I stupidly didn't have the right shoes on (not flip flops but not 'proper'!) while I just put more hay in. He kind of hit my foot at the side/base of little toe. Swelled up massive immediately and was excruciating. 7 days on and...

    Do you have automatic water in your fields??

    Do those of you who have your own yards/fields mostly have automatic watering? Is it a massive pain to have fields that don't have a water supply - how do you get the water to them if the hose won't reach!? I know it would be more work - but how much more!

    County showing without a groom??!?

    Not sure that I will always be able to find someone to 'groom' for me at all the shows I want to go to. Does anyone just go and take the saddle off and get on with it or do you just not go if you haven't any help on hand?
