    Reassurance needed

    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...

    Horse prices

    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...

    Would you?

    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...

    Good all rounder. Rare as hens teeth?

    My friend is looking for a new horse. I’m trying to help her out but I’m not having much luck either. She wants a really nice allrounder. 15.00-16.3 she’s not worried about a minimum age but I’d say 7 is being sensible - 11 years maximum. Must be good to hack alone/ in company. On the flat...

    Buying a large horse

    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...

    Horse not keen on turnout

    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. However...

    Fed up

    Bit of a woe is me post, so if you aren’t into sympathy seeking this isn’t the thread for you. I feel like banging my head up against a brick wall (although given yesterday’s performance by new horse, she would have happily done this for me) I purchased my new horse 4 months ago. I knew...
