I've had them for years,have always bought the Tack style. Last pair just broke after 4 yrs so decided I'd try different design due to slipping in mud. Bought a pair of Greta and really not getting on with them at all. I think I have a faulty pair anyway as the tread isn't properly attached to...
I have 3 on 1.8 acres, they are ponies though. the field is split and they are kept on the 1 acre all winter with haynets in their shelter. I do give hay most of the year round and it does get poached around the gate and shelter and these areas don't really recover but the rest of the field...
I've used a 16", it has the square cantle. I'm 5' 4" , 29 inside leg size 10. I find it fine . My mare is quite short backed so suits her well, although I prefer a suede seat so it is up for sale if anyone looking for a cob xxx wide :)
I bought one for my Sec D and it almost strangles her :( Agree with previous poster about how long the belly part is and was also concerned they might get a leg stuck in it....
Off to buy a new fly rug:rolleyes:
Mine are too heavy to roll up :confused:
I flip mine over an old broom handle and carry from each end - obviously need two people tho... otherwise i just struggle and try and drag them after folding over .. I def need longer arms :mad:
I had an Arab mare who always spooked hacking on her own, in company she was completely chilled. She'd spook at the same thing for ever and never changed. I owned her for over 20 yrs ... hope yours gets better as it could be a bit tiring :rolleyes:
Been using their feeds for about 18 months and love them, so do my ponies ... mine have been on fibre balance this winter, with a bit of fast fibre...their coats are glossy and they've kept their weight a little too well :)
I would have said yard two but I'm another one who doesn't believe in individual turn out being healthy for a horse.
I've been on yards with mixed herds without problems.
Being a riding school would put me off more than anything else due to lack of access to the schools . If you can fit in...
The only thing we found when going to Kenfig was the bridle way from the car park was really boggy.... and that was in August !! .. we ended up using part of the footpath as the bridleway was so bad
Went down a few weeks later and it had dried out enough to make it safe to use.
Who said there wasn't a hay net big enough for a round bale :D
I'm not quite sure why UWIC keeps being brought into this ??? Yes they do have car parking issues but are not currently looking to aquire additional land .
The closure of the Riding School will have a very personal impact on some of its employees and should it close will be much missed...
