    As you get older what is the most important thing you have learnt

    Anyone else have a yard full of unicorns?

    Lovely horses but I do hope no one ever has to look after them for you, they may all end up in the wrong stables lol! You must be a glutton for punishment having 3 to try keep clean!

    Uh oh!! Worried now

    That feeling when you ring the vet. Tell the receptionist the problem and she replies with a concerned... Ohhhh.... I am rather worried this could be a big problem. I lunged Jimmy this morning. When I asked for canter he struck off left rein fine. But then both back legs bounce together a...

    Br careful going through gates (gory pic only open if you have a strong stomach!)

    Omg!!! That is nasty!! We've got gates to go through on our rides and I've had a few near misses over the years. Glad to hear you are now back to riding but I would definitely report that and see if the gates can be changed

    Muzzle at night Yes or No ?

    My horse goes out at night with his muzzle on, he needs to lose weight so I can't leave it off him. It has quick release in case he gets caught, but he's always been ok day or night, so I don't worry

    Muzzling overnight?

    My horse goes out from about 5pm to 9am with his muzzle on. And then he stands in his stable through the day. I just use the shires type, he tends to roll around on the floor trying to get it off but when that fails he just gets on with it

    Do you keep anything in the stable?

    I wish it were so simple. Think the tack rooms were added on later. The gutter runs along the back of the tack rooms and there is a building behind them. There are 5 tack rooms. If I mess with mine too much, it will make the others worse. I have tried adding gutter joints, using sealant. Using...

    Do you keep anything in the stable?

    So I've always kept my stable empty of anything that didn't have to be in there. Several others on my yard have rug racks and tack boxes with their saddle and things in. I always preferred to keep as much space as possible for the horses. However my tack room is now not really usable. The...

    Do you trim a bridle path?

    I do. I hate putting bridles on cobs with thick manes. One pony at my yard used to have this huge mane under the bridle and it must have been so uncomfortable It's interesting this post is almost 50/50

    What do you all do for jobs and how do they fit in with horses?

    I do dog walking Monday to Friday. Working roughly 10am-3pm though that's not exact. And then I work in a wetherspoons part time, if I do 6 till whatever time then I can do the horses myself. If I do weekend daytimes I get someone just to fetch the horses in or out for me 🙂
