    Use of Arc Equine on Humans

    I know this thread is a month old now but I have just come across it. I have a new AE unit for myself and another for my horses. The horses are another story in itself - but in a nut shell, vet said would not jump again and last year hunted half a season and did our first BE - now done another...

    Paddock cleaners - advice please :-)

    Hi all - I am looking into buying a paddock cleaner - the brush type not the hoover type. I need something that I can tow behind a small quad bike. The quad has its own power supply at the back for attachments so I am looking for something that utilises this rather than one that has an on board...

    Bitting issues.....

    I have had exactly the same problem with my darling boy - he is a 15.3hh ID strong chunky lad. I school him in a NS loose ring verbindend - hacks out in a waterford hanging cheek, as its a bit more strong if I needed it - and sometimes hacking out I do. But out hunting he just goes off on one -...

    How would a German Dressage Comp horse have been kept?

    Auld is right about the trailer and horse boxes - Lorrys are so expensive over there its preventative - a friend of ours is a professional 'S' class (top level) show jumper and he only has a trailer - and many of them have tarpaulin roofs! you would shudder to see what they are transported in -...

    How would a German Dressage Comp horse have been kept?

    Ooo look forward to the pictures - from our experience of living there with our hrses - competition horses and many others are just not allowed to have a personality so takes a while for that to come along - and they are often not used to turn out at all - so watch those windy days and wear a...

    Cough when transition fron walk to trot

    My gelding does this and has for years - the vet says he has a small pocket in his lunges that is over stretched and does not contract - so a small pocket of mucus stays there - when we go up from walk to trot and the start of our ride he always has to get his head down and clear himself. I have...

    Kevin Parker horse boxes

    Hi there - you would be best giving him a bell - he is so approachable - plus it will give you a good feel for what he is like - your not looking cheap and cheerful but you are looking quality without the Oakley price tag! :-) I think prices would very much depend on what you need in a box and...

    ID - well said, so many people want a little box to drive but still want the luxury of a 7.5 - not possible unless you carry ponies. One last thing about KP - he is as honest as the day is long - seen too many builders who cant lie straight in bed! would you trust them with your money? I spoke...

    Saddle woes. Advice needed.

    Oh and ps forget treeless unless you want to give your horse a bad back in around a years time - they do not spread the weight and you have stirrup bars that drive down straight into the horses back - not great, most horses need sorting out after a year of this - if you are jumping you need a...

    Saddle woes. Advice needed.

    Just a tip - always look at the country the saddles come from and you will see that the saddles are made for the types of horses from that country ie Stubben are made for warm blood types, Passier, French warm bloods etc etc - go for an English make as you have an ID. Lots of people dont realise...

    saddle fit, opinions please

    Just a quick reply - to find the correct place for the saddle to sit, find the end of the scapula, place two fingers after this point - just after this is where the point of the tree should begin :-) To find the last rib (T18) place your hand on the flank area lower down - (forget for now about...

    saddle fit, opinions please

    Hi - sounds like you have been having a nightmare! I too am an SMS saddle fitter. Looking at the panels on this saddle from the front they are nice and flat, however they have gussetted fronts and you seem to have quite a good cut back head on the tree. These tend to come on saddles that are...

    Has anyone got an Equine Sun switch?

    Becca - that looks really interesting. I had a dig about after I last typed and was a little wrong as I was looking at the wrong product, but can see that the Sunswitch price for 2 lights, £20 less with the other company and you get 2 lights, so thats a considerable difference. However would...

    Has anyone got an Equine Sun switch?

    Oh brill thanks! Thanks too Becca!! I have just been checking out and comparing the web site details and the SunSwitch is a lower protection rating of IP54 (dust and water splash) and the Electric fence one you gave me is IP55 (dust and water jet) which would be useful to me as I intend this to...
