    Prolite Boots - How do they go on?

    Ok I've been stumped by these boots! Always had a variety of boots with straps on the outside pointing to the back unless double locking. I have just got the prolite closed tendons.

    Arena Panic/Phobia?

    My mare hates being restricted or restrained. Something went on in her past ( she has scarring on her poll for starters) and she can be very quirky. Holding onto her headcollar to touch her ears is a big no, but don't hold on and she's fine. I can just about clip her loose in the box but not...

    Are xc colours no more?

    Watching Burghly on tv I noticed this year a lot of the competitiors no longer have xc colours as such, opting for black or white. I know top level have never had garish colours and patterns but there used to be more variation. Is there a reason for this "uniform" of back and white? Is it...
