    Stiffness when schooling

    The mare I share is really stiff on her left rein. I haven't schooled her for a little while and she's definitely deteriorated since I last did. Before I try to go down the route of saddle checks and/or physio/backman, is there any schooling exercising that would be able to help? I've been...

    As a carry on from the scenario thread...

    ... How would you stop biting? I've smacked her on the shoulder, smacked her on the nose, growled, shouted, but I can't stop her doing it. It can be at any time from tacking up to grooming, to clipping, she does it in season or out of, I just don't know what her problem is? Her teeth were...

    Going to be brave...

    ...And post the videos from my latest competition with Gigi. The first round, she always needs to have a refusal. After this class, I have noticed the pattern, she ALWAYS refuses the last part of the double in the first round, so next time I shall ride her much stronger to get her over it...

    Clipping help please

    Rough background, have been clipping since I was about 8 (with help from mum to start with), have always clipped my own, whether youngsters that haven't seen clippers before or older horses that are used to it. I think I'm quite good when it comes to nervous types, take it very slow etc...

    Loose horse - help needed

    I'm at work (police) and regularly, as in every other night, 2 traveller horses get out onto a busy 50mph road. Obviously, I put them back in, or colleagues if I'm not in do, and do the fence up the best I can. The landowner has said he has kicked them out, but no official complaint so...

    First ODE on Gigi today!

    So, today I took Gigi to our first ODE, her first for at least a year and my first for about 6 years! Scored a fairly respectable 46.4 in the dressage. She could have gone better, but I've only had time to practise twice, and she was tense and excited being at a party. Anyway, that put us in...

    Showing off my gorgeous girl (again!)

    Took my beautiful Gigi to her first XC in about a year for a schooling session today, and she was an absolute star! She looked at most of the fences, but after turning her around she jumped them all either first or second time, so I'm really chuffed, so thought I would share some pics :)...

    Smokey; my final update

    So today I said goodbye to my best friend. For 2 years, he's been the one I've gone to when work hasn't been going great, or when I've had an argument in my relationship. He knows all my secrets, and has soaked up my tears many times. But from today I can no longer call him mine. He was...
