    Body Protectors?

    Asking on behalf of a friend (I don't do jumping, but prefer to do it from the safety of the sofa lol). She needs a new BP and is BEing at 100 level and aiming higher. Thinking of an air jacket, but also considering Kan Teqs - any advice gratefully received :)

    RIP Rahy and Slip Anchor

    Aged 26 and 29 respectively. Sad news. Both fabulous racehorses in their own rights and both sires of top flight horses and dam sires of such. I have fond memories of meeting Rahy on a few occasions and even have a lock of his mane.

    What is going on?

    Am I to believe that both Cruiseline and Parkside have been given either temporary or permanent holidays from this forum?

    Masked Marvel - Track record in the St Leger!!

    Absolutely FANTASTIC performance!!! He looks to me like he could both get further and come back in distance. Fantastic horse - Love his Mum too :D Both St Legers (Irish as well) this weekend were just brilliant performances and trainer John Gosden trained the winners of both, who were both...

    King George, Ascot

    Brilliant performance by Nathaniel, Workforce hung too badly to do himself justice. But OMG!!! Rewilding!!! That was a horrific breakdown!! Poor, poor horse!! Fingers crossed that he is comfortably savable!

    Brushing boots for short cannoned cob!

    My cob has very short cannons, he also has a tremendous amount of bone! He is hogged and legs clipped out regularly (otherwise would just have legs of wire brush lol). I would like some brushing boots that actually fit him, as he can be sharp and a bit of nit and he had HUGAMONGOUS feet. Any...

    Getting Started Competing (again)

    Be nice :) You guys can be scary with the levels that you compete at... Anyway, apart from the odd County Show in-hand with my youngsters (and even then I had someone else take them in the ring lol), I haven't competed on horse back for what feels like a millennia lol BUT I want to :) But...

    Does anyone know the origin of the term? Just talking with someone and this came up, along with the reasonings for hogging and the variations and I said that with cobs the whole hog (pardon the pun) comes off and have got to wondering if that saying had anything to do with the origins of the...

    BE Ownership Question

    I have now emailed BE twice and called four times, all to no avail. They must be extremely busy, as no one answers the phone or it's busy... The number is the one off the website, is that correct? I want to register my 5yo BE. That's the simple bit :) I have been told that as the owner...

    Magnetic boot recommendation please

    I thought I'd ask in here, as more traffic in here. I'd like some fairly indestructible magnetic boots - I say indestructible, as in order to leave them on to work their magic, they need to withstand the playful efforts of my over intelligent :rolleyes: equine child to remove them to play...

    To Clay or Not To Clay?

    As far as I can gather it's now no longer the norm to clay legs after strenuous exercise, but to cool them with water/ice. Can anyone point me in the direction of any papers to say that this is more beneficial please? I did google it, but am perhaps not wording my search correctly, as...

    When is a win or place, not actually so?

    Odd question I know, but triggered by a few posts on here atm. If there are only a handful in the class and you win or place in it, is there still the same feeling of satisfaction, as when there are loads entered? Esp. if there are 'names' competing. It's so long since I've ridden...
