    TB ExRacer - Stable VICES

    Sounds like you have been treating him well! probably too well. Remember ex race horses love routine, if you are going to change anything do it slowly, if he is hacking out and decides he wants to go in a different direction then don't let him, even if you have to get off to lead him, don't...

    Hunt Mergers

    Hunts that merge generally do for the greater good, its always a shame to loose a hunt and with the current climate hitting everyone hunts are going to face lots of financial pressure. My concern is the loss of hound blood lines, as long as the packs are merged at the same time it can only be...

    What weight can a horse carry?

    Its difficult subject, I ride everything from 14 hands upwards, its a dependent on breed really. Take a sec D Welsh cob, now they can carry exceptional weight, but cross it with something a bit more lightly boned then the weight it would carry healthy wise would dramatically reduce. I would...

    How big a crime to not clip a pony for the opening meet?

    Its not important to have your horse or pony clipped, what is important that both horse and rider are turned out to the best you can and that you behave in a polite and friendly way to those who are out with you and those who are good enough to allow you to hunt on their land. My only advise...

    I have been involved in racing and horses all my life, like all horses ex race horses have their place, its just very rewarding when you see them in use past their race days.

    I'm scared of being bucked off...

    Go for it! just take it slow. Dont over lunge as it will get him fit before you get on. Maybe ride out with company but stay positive so your horse can feel that you are safe and know what you are doing! And have fun, good luck you can do it!
