For me, The Morning Line overall are doing a good job, Aintree looks magnificent,
Thought the farce of a start for the Foxhunters needs to be looked at, how many people does it take to put a bridle on, For me, the first fence came too quick in the same race , esp after a standing start...
Oh dear, sorry to hear that. My horse didnt show the same reaction, and loaded first time (unusually for her ).
There was a discussion on this product a while ago, maybe worth searching?
The application instruction is quite precise.
I suppose Gaviscon would be the equivalent of what I have been using here in France, around 40 to 60 mls syringed into the horses mouth, before a potentially stressfull event like loading> Phosphalugel, cheap as chips from the pharmacy, the horse liked the taste, just dont get any on your clothes!
Lots and lots on here already to be considered, rent before committing is a good idea!
Availabilty of Engish feed is becoming easier in my area, but unless you have specialist needs, the French feed suffices.
Research research research.....
Horze do a sweetitch rug which i use on a horse similar to yours.
Bit of a faff to put on, but, would absolutely buy again instead of a standard fly rug, which he got too hot and sweaty in. Washed well and dried quickly. There is a full face mask neck cover available seperatly so no gaps around...
Sorry to hear of your loss and hope the mare is recovering,
I am late to this thread, being in at Cheval Passion in Avignon last weekend, where I thought of you when we saw Shagya stallions in thier boxes, (dont ask me which ones as the Mistrale was doing its best to blow the whole show away)...
A box costs 40 euros for 10 sachets.
After trying a free sample, I was amazed by the difference to a tricky young mare with loading issues.
You must apply the gel when the horse is completely calm, half an hour before you need it to work.
There was a marked change in behaviour for the better...
