I am phoning the vet in the morning to discuss but I’m panicking myself.
New horse arrived a month ago. Came from a busy yard where he had very limited turnout - max 4 hours a day and always solo.
Since arriving I’ve gradually been increasing the turnout and he’s out with a companion pony who...
So as everybody knows, horse prices in the UK are a lot higher than they used to be.
I’ve been quietly looking for a dressage/all rounder for a while and just musing what to do and whether prices are coming down.
I went to see two at the same yard in July last year. Gelding and a mare. The...
This one to buy horse quest ad ref 263572
Absolutely perfect for me but no surprise that he’s been snatched up.
I can’t seem to link the ad but the description is
The coolest cob on the hunting field!

As a teenager I sporadically hunted when I could beg or borrow a mount. I really enjoyed these days out but due to life moving on I haven’t hunted in 15 or so years.
It’s a long story to explain but through a work colleague I’ve never actually met because we live opposite ends of the country...
Ive just had my first lesson to do my Cat C License.
Instructor showed me the basics off road around a disused air field for 1.5 hours before going out on the road. The instructor said I was driving very well. Completed the reverse and a slight incline pull away , gear changes and safe...
My friend is looking for a new horse. Im trying to help her out but Im not having much luck either.
She wants a really nice allrounder. 15.00-16.3 shes not worried about a minimum age but Id say 7 is being sensible - 11 years maximum.
Must be good to hack alone/ in company. On the flat...
A friend is considering buying a 17hh WB.
I have expressed concern having lost a large WB of my own to neuro problems. Now I have no real evidence that larger horses are more prone to neuro issues apart from when my gelding was being diagnosed posting on forums for advice and the general...
Is anybody else's horse not keen on winter turnout?
I've had my mare for 6 months or so, the old owners didn't turn her out at all, but all of the horses at my livery yard pretty much live out all year which I love. So she has been living out ever since and seemingly loving it.
Bit of a woe is me post, so if you arent into sympathy seeking this isnt the thread for you.
I feel like banging my head up against a brick wall (although given yesterdays performance by new horse, she would have happily done this for me)
I purchased my new horse 4 months ago. I knew...
After many years of being a groom/rider I now have a normal 9-5 job. But I'm really missing riding. If anybody has a horse (s) that need exercising I'm willing to come over for free to ride providing it's around the Bridgnorth/Shropshire area.
BHS qualified and I have 20...
