    Buyer not collecting horse?!

    If she has paid in full for the horse you could charge her Livery for the time she has left the horse. If you’re a member of BHS ask them for advice.

    At my wits end.... Time to give up horse keeping?

    I used to work long hours in a stressful job & kept my 2 horses at home. Had an arena but no safe hacking so had to box up to safe routes when I wanted to hack. Once the daylight hours became fewer I stopped riding & just looked after them. Out all day, in at night whatever the weather. Once...

    House & horse sitter.

    We are hoping to get away some time this year if we can find a trustworthy person to live in & look after our horses & barn cat. We have no house pets. Some years ago I used a “professional” company & would never use them again or recommend. We are in Lancashire. Anyone know a sitter they...

    I don’t know why everybody isn’t using this bit

    As there seems to be a lot of knowledgeable bitting people on here maybe you can help me. I have a rescue pony that constantly draws his tongue back & mouths on the bit. I’ve had a bit person out. My pony has a small mouth, a short smile, a fat tongue, a large low grass muscle. I’ve tried...

    Dust free, small muck heap bedding

    Bear in mind there’s going to be dust everywhere so dust free bedding doesn’t mean there’s no dust. I use chopped rape straw & works well for me.

    I have a friend looking for a horse 15-f. Happy to have an older Equine to enjoy a variety of activities at a low level. She’s an experienced novice & can offer a 5* forever home (small private home with 2 retired horses) However a small budget. Where are these cheap older horses?

    I was going to say something similar. If you are going to confront them you need someone strong with you to support you & not let them bully you - my OH is brilliant at this . Also write down exactly what you want - Eg I’m giving you 4 weeks notice as from today, 1st Feb, you must have...

    Another setback? Or 'is he the right horse'?

    Another setback? Or 'is he the right horse'?

    I really feel for you. I’ve had 2 that I bought as all rounders, both vetted & both ‘not right’ after about 8 months. Both had full vet work up. I keep mine at home & already had my veteran retired homebred so keeping a non ridden horse not a problem for me. First one wouldn’t settle to...
