    Leaking Rug - Money back any advice

    Hello In October I purchased a weathabeta confitec waterproof TO rug. I used it a few times and the first time it rained it leaked. Horse soaking. I returned it to the shop who say they tested it and it didn't leak. No refund - I tried escalating it to weatherbeta and they called me up saying...

    Automatic horseboxes 3.5t

    Thanks - yes there are some out there - but I don't have any idea which is the better automatic gearbox - my 10yr old Renault Master I've been told they don't supply parts for anymore - so I don't want to get another the same or its only any good until something breaks

    Automatic horseboxes 3.5t

    Hello Does anyone have any recommendations for AUTOMATIC horseboxes? I currently have a 07 plate Renault Master (semi-Automatic) but after being unable to get a seemingly simple fault fixed anywhere (ongoing I may yet succeed) I was thinking that this make was perhaps not the best...? I...

    Total Confidence Crisis

    Thanks several folks have mentioned NLP - Ive done a bit of googling and sent a couple of e-mails - so lets hope that may be a way forward - Ive been ignoring the issue for 6 months now and last night when I was reduced to tears yet again by a tiny tiny spook at a bird in a bush on the same...

    Total Confidence Crisis

    I did think about in hand hacking - and I would long rein too but for the HUGE main road you have no choice but to navigate which i think would be lethal on long lines :) all good ideas

    Total Confidence Crisis

    Thanks Red - 1 thats an interesting idea - Just stopping to put myself back in control - I can see the sense in that. I could just accept that I am going to just school for 3 months or so and not beat myself up etc - I can school without being terrified as that's my comfort zone I guess. I...

    Total Confidence Crisis

    Thanks 'be positive' - I am better when I hack out with the friend (esp on the older horse) its just hard to fix it up due to working hours etc more than occasionally. My other horse is more jiggy in company - my husband who knows horses offered to come on foot but he did it once and got fed up...

    Total Confidence Crisis

    Thanks :) your right I was feeling at the end of my tether - I might investigate NLP I've heard that can be very helpful. I guess I am just so cross with myself that I have always managed despite my nerves and now I just cant seem to do things which were previously not an issue

    Total Confidence Crisis

    Ok so this is a bit of a long story... I have never been the worlds bravest rider but given a sensible enough horse this has not stopped me hacking for many miles, jumping 85cm, xc schooling over small fences and riding up to medium dressage unaffiliated. 18 months ago my father was killed in a...

    Unaffiliated Above Elementary - midlands/Gloucester/bucks??

    Thanks Kc100 - I looked at your venue as I thought I knew they did mediums - turns out I was kind of right.

    Unaffiliated Above Elementary - midlands/Gloucester/bucks??

    Thanks I will try there :) its not too far. I don't know why I don't affiliate really no good reason - but I think I kind of like to not take it too seriously after all I am just a amateur rider I am never going to be super good - I have a feeling I can go further and have more fun unaffiliated

    Unaffiliated Above Elementary - midlands/Gloucester/bucks??

    Does anyone know any venues which do unaffiliated dressage above elementary? In a few months I would like to have a go at a Medium test but cant see anywhere that goes above elementary in an unaffiliated class. I could drive about an hour if needed from Stratford upon Avon - any ideas? many thanks
