    Got to love HHO :D

    Quite often the police will get certain people/family members to make a public appeal for a reason. They will have watched every facial expression, body movement and each word. There is a reason why they got the step grandfather to do a public appeal :(

    Backing the young horse - NOT the MR way!!

    Does JanetGeorge need to advertise? I doubt it. I enjoy watching JG's videos and reading her posts as with alot of other posters on here. JG's horses are a credit to her and her staff. Even if this thread hadn't been posted, her yard would have been my first port of call if I was ever to...

    I'm I the only one who doesn't ride?

    Aw thank you, that has made me smile. I'm going to have a break for a couple of months and see how I feel. But really, thank you its very kind :)

    I'm I the only one who doesn't ride?

    I stopped riding a couple of months ago when I sold my mare. After a few bad experiences with equestrian people, I can't see me ever bothering again. I don't post here anymore either but do read every now and then.

    Do you wear a body protector when out hacking?

    Yes, always wear one riding. Some very flawed logic on here though.

    What do you think of this horse?

    Why would a gag put you off?

    What do you think of this horse?

    Yes he is. He was bought by a member of their staff who has decided to sell as she can't afford him. You'll have to be quick though as there seems to be quite a bit of interest.

    What do you think of this horse?

    I've got that dealer on my fb page, he's sold I'm afraid. They've got plenty of others in though, but they do sell pretty quickly.

    What to do now?

    Depo - contraception ;) used for humans too. Have you spoken to your vet about the timing of the injection? With her season starting the day after the jab, it might have been too late for this season but may work for the next? Or I might be talking a load of rubbish :D

    Electric fence escapees

    I had that problem at a yard I was at. The only thing keeping my mare in was a strand of white tape and the YO kept complaining that she was breaking through. Well she will if there's no electric going through it - doh! What does the YO say about it?

    Livery Prices

    No it isn't £60 per week which is why I listed the hay and bedding costs. It costs me £81 per week including haylage, bedding and feed.

    my worst ever ride, totally gutted and not sure what to do...

    Agree with everyone else, don't panic and don't put too much pressure on yourself. Riding a schoolmaster/mistress is a great idea. I did that when I lost my confidence totally last year, it gave me the confidence in my riding to get back on my mare (even though it wasn't her who lobbed me...

    my worst ever ride, totally gutted and not sure what to do...

    Sorry to hear that :( Do you know what causes the spooking? Or what caused the bolt? Has your instructor ridden him? I would go back to ground work, build your trust in him and also cut out any hard feed if he's getting any. Take your time getting back on. Make sure you have someone...

    Livery Prices

    It really does vary from area to area. It might be best if you let people know roughly where you are (county). My yard charges £60 for: Turn out/bring in All rug changes Muck out Rug/numnah/boots washed (turnouts reproofed too) Facilities include: Stable Horse Walker Outdoor school with...

    People are entitled to change their minds :confused: It always puzzles me when people selling horses take it so personally. If the person had organised a vetting, paid a deposit and simply changed their minds without a good reason, then yes, that's time wasting. But all they did was come...

    Giving up horses for a while??

    I've taken a few breaks. First one was around 24yrs old, I started again after having my eldest daughter, had a small break after having my youngest but the longest was from 24yrs old to 35 yrs old. I've just sold my mare, we were totally unsuited and fully intend to have another break as my...

    Riding on your own

    I would love to ride on my own. I've just sold my mare who wouldn't hack out alone and am on the look out for something that will hack alone. I like riding out with people but also like to go out on my own. A few do it at my yard.

    Midnight Ramblers - raging rant !

    I hope your stock is more settled tonight OP and that the injured horse isn't in too much discomfort. I think it was incredibly thoughtful of you to put lighting on to make the stiles easier to see. I hope the organisers take note of your complaint and realise that this isn't about who's...

    Anyone own a Cleveland Bay?

    I've seen a very reasonably priced CBx mare advertised in Cheshire, less than 2k on Preloved.

    What's your saddle?

    An Albion K2 GP but no horse to put it on anymore :o I'm hanging onto it as saddles aren't selling at the moment and it's less than a year old in immaculate condition and you never know! My horse doesn't go to her new home for another few days and I'm already thinking of contacting Janet...

    How much does the presentation of a horse affect your opinion when viewing?

    I'd want a bit of effort on first viewing but would ask for straight from field on the second and would expect to see some mud if there is any.

    Clueless Liverys??

    Such paragons of virtue :rolleyes: If I ever need to remind myself not to get another horse, I'll have a look here ;)
